I love teaching students of all ages a variety of instruments and styles...from 3 year old twins taking piano lessons to an 85 year old woman taking organ lessons. Each lesson is exciting discovering what we can learn together. I have toured all over the U.S throughout my life and am a singer/songwriter in the process of recording my 9th CD. I created an international tour that continuea every year.. I have taught students that are Billboard Music's Top 10 artists, Grammy Winners and American Music Award Winners, American Idol top 50, known child stars and actors on major TV Shows and sitcoms.
Students should learn and progress at a pace that is achievable for them. Therefore my teaching style integrates a love for music with an ultimate goal of gradual success in each lesson. It’s a system of suggestions, instructions, and reward. The key is to enjoy the journey of learning by determining what motivates individual students in order to share their musical talent with others. In doing so, I then adjust my way of teaching to fit various singers within a comfortable environment to their wants and needs.
Music is an important part of education, and it also has many benefits including aiding in the development of cognitive and motor skills. Each student is unique; so I customize the lessons and repertoire to suit each student, utilizing method books and sometimes popular songs, and always including music theory, the foundation.
I focus on several different areas for every student, so that he/she can keep progressing in all areas of technic and musical knowledge: WARM-UPs, SCALES, MUSIC THEORY, SIGHTREADING, and PREPARED PIECES. And as all music students 'should', it's important to build a good habit of practicing with a metronome. My experience in both the civilian and military music communities has given me a very open-minded but direct approach to WHAT you should learn, and HOW FAST you should be able to progress each individual student. Just ask how my style may assist you personally, or ask any questions that you may have.
I like to enjoy myself, whether it's working or specifically NOT working. I am enthusiastic, positive, funny, caring, and dedicated to my craft and my students. I have a talent for adapting to different situations quickly and (usually) successfully. My experiences have been in all genres of music and on several different instruments. If you want to learn, I want to teach. We're a perfect match!

We teach singing to adults of all ages, each of whom have different aims and goals in mind. For many adults, they want to learn how to sing simply for fun or for their karaoke nights. For others, they may want to develop their voices with the goal of becoming a professional vocalist in mind. Advanced students often want to learn a few specific techniques or work on some exercises, such as increasing their range, improving their support, singing with distortion, vibrato, etc. We have a range of experienced teachers in our network who can help with your specific goals.
Children who want to take voice lessons should wait until they're at least 11 or 12 years old. At that time, their voice is maturing, and they are emotionally ready to practice regularly and apply themselves. Starting voice lessons before puberty could cause vocal cord damage and strain. That damage potentially jeopardizes future vocal performances. By waiting a few years, children protect their voice. Then they can start lessons and prepare to audition for local, regional, and national competitions or performances in their teen and adult years.
In-home voice lessons are convenient and practical. One of the professional instructors in Musika's network comes to your home so you don't have to drive anywhere or schedule extra time into your busy schedule. You can choose any genre you want, and your teacher helps you choose songs that fit your voice and style. You even learn to protect your voice, control your projection, and show the right emotions as you master the art of singing. All you need is a piano or keyboard and sheet music. There's no better way to master singing than with convenient and practical in-home voice lessons.
Maintaining good vocal health is crucial for people wanting to learn how to sing. Misuse of voice can lead to vocal problems that can either prevent students from fulfilling their potential or irreparably damage the voice. There are several simple methods for helping to maintain good vocal health. It is important to remain hydrated by drinking plenty of water, as this will stop the voice drying out, which can irritate the vocal folds and cause soreness and discomfort. It is also important to properly warm up the voice before or at the start of lessons, practice, or a performance.
Singing lessons will focus on teaching students how to sing with good vocal technique and how to apply these techniques to the art of singing songs. Students will learn exercises and techniques that enable them to sing with a clear, balanced, well-pitched vocal tone, how to support the voice, and how to increase their vocal range. Students will learn these techniques through vocalizing vowel sounds on different scales that vary in difficulty, learn how to tilt the thyroid cartilage in order to bridge into the head voice for range extension, and how to reduce the use of the extrinsic muscles of the larynx to avoid constriction when ascending in pitch. Students can develop their performance techniques and song interpretation, and learn advanced techniques and exercises such as developing vibrato, rasp/distortion effects, messa di voce, and vocal run and fills. Students can also be prepared for auditions, exams, and gigs.

Usually I don't write reviews. I am compelled to write for Feng. I've experience finding/working with many music teachers over the years for different instruments (piano, flute, sax) for kids. I think Feng is the best, he is so passionate about music, he encourages the kids. He teaches thoroughly - you can tell he knows lot about saxophone. I would definitely recommend Feng!!

Mike has been working with my son Robert for over a year and has just started working with my daughter Kate. Mike is both a great musician and a good teacher. He connects with the kids and keeps them engaged. He is able to tailor the lesson to focus on music that is interesting to each child. He also encourages the students to participate in a public setting which is great. I would highly recommend Mike.
Review by Olivia
Andrew is very encouraging and uplifting, but also isn't afraid to tell you your weaknesses. Andrew also is super awesome with scheduling. Fits around your schedule all the time. He really knows what he is doing and can help you reach your goal in the time you would like to. Couldn't have gotten a better teacher, who continually helps me grow and pushes me.
Review by Kaleen Todoroff
Noel is amazing. She is helping me to work toward my vocal goals for auditions to several musical theaters. She has helped me choose strong audition pieces and is teaching excellent ways to get the sound I need in a safe and healthy way. She works outside our lessons on new warm ups and new music pieces. She is the best.
Review by Jeremy
Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.

I am a beginning guitar player that has now taken five lessons with Jeff. I cannot speak highly enough of Jeff has a guitar teacher! I have learned more in five lessons than the months I spent trying to learn on my own. Jeff has introduced me to music apps that I can use during my practice sessions, followed up our lessons with comments and/or music, is very encouraging - yet holds high standards. During my lessons I feel that Jeff is very observant and tuned in to your positioning when playing - whether it be your wrist, your arm, or your fingers. He always offers recommendations on ways to try to fix something that I might be struggling with. He really pays attention. As an aside, Jeff is a very talented songwriter and musician. Check him out on YouTube. His songs are very beautiful and inspirational. I'm honored to be his student! - Linda
Review by Scott
David is not only a great musician and educator but also a delightful human. We began using David six years ago as a piano teacher for my two boys. Since then my eldest moved on to acoustic and electric guitar and my youngest electric and stand up bass. Somewhere along the way I began to take guitar lessons also (I was David's most bearded student at age 48). David always came prepared to lead but also to follow, he often asked what we were listening to and taught us how to play it. His ability to listen to a piece of music and transcribe it always left me amazed, we have several notebooks full of songs we learned individually or played as a group. After a shoulder injury David continued to impress by teaching me music theory instead of our usual lesson. I could go on forever, David made a positive impact on my family and feel fortunate to have met him.

Melissa is very encouraging, positive, supportive and patient. She knows how to explain the technical details of flute and music notation to kids in a way that makes sense to them. She has been reliable so far turning up on time and calling if there is a need to reschedule. I would definitely recommend her to others.
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
