I began teaching private instruction part time in 2001. I have taught in my home, as well as in local music stores. I have been teaching full time as of 2007. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and have watched some of my students go on to great accomplishments in their music careers. Sharing my passion of music with everyone has been an encouraging and uplifting factor in my life and has encouraged many of my students to receive top honors in the music community. My students range in age; I started at the age of 4 myself, and retained a lot of information at that age. I feel if you are passionate about something you can accomplish anything!
My passion, discipline and determination to be professional at all costs helped me to graduate from BIT, and Pasadena Music Academy, and immerse myself into the music scene as a gifted multi instrumentalist concentrating on bass. I can sight read, play by ear, arrange music, and play any style or genre. I have toured with international artists who have inspired me to continue performing throughout my life.
I have been teaching since I was studying at The University of Tampa in 2006. Since, I have taught students in Upstate New York while studying and graduating from SUNY Adirondack. Most recently I have been teaching students in the Riverview area while studying for my bachelors degree for the past 3 years . I encourage all creativity and I am passionate about education and the effects music has on educational abbilities. I like to focus on discipline while making learning fun and interactive.
I am the Artistic Director at a music school where I direct and teach Beginning to Professional Level Voice and Beginning to Advanced Piano. I hold over twenty years of professional music teaching experience and have acted as professional Singer, Pianist, Music Director, Choral Director, Choral Accompanist, Instrumental/Vocal Accompanist, Voice and Piano Instructor, and College Piano/Theory/Voice Tutor. I hold a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Voice Performance and hold twenty-one Graduate Degree credits in Voice and Piano Performance beyond my undergraduate degree. I hold a K-12 Music Education Teaching Certification and a K-6 Elementary Education Teaching Certification both from the Florida Department of Education. I have taught extensively in private, public and in ensembles throughout Northern California, Southern California, Texas, Seattle Metro Area-Washington State, Central Florida and now in the Greater Tampa Bay Area, Florida. I am background checked, certificated and am a highly experienced voice technician that specializes in opera, classical music for voice, and musical theatre. I have trained pianist and singers of all ages and levels and has successfully prepared students for college entrance auditions and exams. I have had former students go onto to become professional singers, actors, music teachers, voice and piano instructors, drama teachers and great lovers of music.
I am a passionate and motivated voice teacher who loves working with students and sharing my love for music. After receiving my Master degree from Louisiana State University, I went to Germany to audition. Within three weeks I got my first 'gig' in Stuttgart, Germany. Since then I have been performing nationally and internationally in opera, musical theatre and as a recitalist. For over 10 years, no matter where I live I always maintain a private studio. I am a teacher of functional singing which main purpose is to achieve healthy singing by improving vocal range, stamina, endurance and flexibility. Singers learn to embrace their own voice, not one that is formed through imitation or poor concepts. If you would like to sing as freely as you speak then contact me and let's get to work.

Singing is a fun activity kids enjoy doing in front of their mirror as they dream of becoming the next great talent. Their voice must be protected, though, from damage and strain. That's why we recommend that kids wait until puberty to start formal voice lessons. Around the age of 11 or 12, a child's voice is mature enough to participate in regular vocal lessons. The instructors in our network teach students of all ages, but we recommend waiting until a child's voice has matured. By waiting, the risk of damage or strain is minimized so a child can successfully perform in front of the mirror or on a national stage.
With in-home voice lessons, discover the depth of your singing talent. A professional from Musika's network will offer personalized instruction in the comfort of your home. Learn to sing R&B, master Opera, or prepare for a competition. All you need is the desire to learn, an effort to practice and a piano or keyboard. The instructor helps you find songs that fit your voice, and you can learn better control and projection. It doesn't matter if you're a professional or a novice singer. You will learn something new each time without leaving the house when you participate in voice lessons at home.
Students will learn and develop good, safe, and modern vocal technique during their vocal lessons. The aim is to get students to be able to sing without strain, discomfort, or constriction throughout the whole of their range, in key, and in a clean, full sounding tone, and then apply these techniques to singing songs in various genres. Students will learn how to bridge and connect their vocal registers in order to expand their vocal range, add vibrato to their singing, and learn how to properly support the voice in order to sing long passages and create a strong, full sounding vocal tone. The teachers in our network can also help students who have tuning problems by conducting exercises that work on their pitch. Lessons can also cover musical theory, performance tips, and vocal effects such as safe vibrato and developing vocal agility through runs and fills. Students can also learn vocal physiology.
The voice is the only instrument that actively requires the use of your entire body for its function. This is why maintaining the health of your body in general is crucial to maintaining the health of your voice. Smoking, excessive drinking of alcohol, caffeine and the use of illegal drugs or certain medications is strongly discouraged. Singers are encouraged to drink room temperature water to promote the hydration of their vocal chords. Excessive screaming, loud singing, or singing for long amounts of time without a rest can cause damage to your voice and should be avoided. It is important to eat a healthy diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins to keep your body and voice healthy. Daily exercise is strongly encouraged, especially activities that require the use of your lungs such as swimming, running, cycling, or aerobics classes, all of which will increase your breath control capacity when singing.
Take adult voice lessons, and sing your best whether you perform for your pets or for a national audience. Voice lessons taught by trained instructors in Musika's network teach you breathing control and voice projection as well as vocal care. We walk with you every step of the way whether you sing Classical, Opera, Country, or another musical style. The teachers in our network can also help you pick songs that match your vocal tone. With practical exercises to do at home, master the art of singing for auditions, performances, or fun. You can sing your best every day when you take adult voice lessons.

There are only a handful of people I count in my life who were great teachers, and Laura is one of them. Her musicianship is so secure as are her technique and personality that she zeros in on my weaknesses and devises exercises to strengthen them, and during the lesson it is not "Do this, no, do that" which is unnerving to a novice. She understands the most important part of study is relaxation, so that is easy to achieve with such a confident and compassionate human. Music is her life and she is eager to share her talent with everyone. A rare find, indeed!

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

Rebecca has been super with my son! He is 8yrs old and has mild aspergers. He has never played an instrument before but after one lesson with his teacher he could keep a beat on his drums. She is able to keep his attention and really makes it fun! She is flexible and easy going. I highly recommend her for any lessons. Very nice teacher! Thank you Rebecca for your outstanding service!!
Review by Richardpoplawski
I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

Mrs. Regnarene is an awesome teacher!!! She found musical aids that appealed to my 5 year old daughter and used them to help teach her piano. She has a lot of patience and I could tell she puts in the work before class to have a lesson ready for my daughter. She is always punctual, friendly and respectful. I would recommend her to any parents who want to start their kids off with a good foundation in piano. Jermain T. Riverview, FL

Bill has been great with my 2 young children (age 3 & 6). He has integrated games into the lessons - they have enjoyed showing us how to play the games when it is time to practice piano. Bill has been easy to contact and rescheduling has not been a problem if we have a conflict at our regular lesson time.

I honestly cannot say enough positive things about Rachel. We met her through CYT where my daughter took theater classes from Rachel and was directed by Rachel in several musicals. Because Rachel was so wonderful to work with and so clearly talented at teaching and directing, several years ago, my daughter started private vocal lesson with her and I have seen my daughter's vocal abilities grow in leaps and bounds. Rachel is an ace at picking music to work on that stretches abilities while at the same time, keeps vocal lessons fun. I highly recommend her as a voice and theater coach.

After moving from NY and parting from our amazing piano instructor, we thought we couldn't find a piano teacher close to what we knew. We are happy to say Musika matched us up with someone professional and friendly who enjoys teaching younger students. Thank you! We definitely recommend Kuan as a piano instructor :)
Review by Jaima Woodiwiss
Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!
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.
