My number one aim is to create independent musicians. Students will learn a variety of fun and engaging practice techniques that they can apply to learning any piece of music.
I began teaching privately ten years ago and have had a varried studio with voice, violin and beginning piano students. I have had students ranging in age from three years to mature adult, all at very different levels of musical ability, and I have taught in the classroom in rural, urban and suburban settings. From these experiences I have learned productive practicing is key, along with self-motivating strategies, to grow as a musician. My studnts have fun while learning proper musical technique in student-tailored approaches. I have had opportunities to create curriculum for beginning musician programs and therefore am apt to help grow a student to where he or she wants. I focus on collaboration and on partnership to develop musically!
I am a music teacher who enjoys working with all age levels. I trained extensively in voice in college at the University of Oklahoma, and I love to share my knowledge and skills with my students. I am a positive and encouraging teacher who helps her students achieve their personal musical goals.
Fortunately, while attending graduate school I was given the opportunity to teach as an associate professor of voice at the Conservatory level. I worked with many different age groups as well as vocal styles. I encouraged my students to perform in a recital at the end of the semester to help them strive for their personal best. It was so wonderful to see how improved everyone was at the end of the year. Although some were nervous my students always thanked me for the opportunity to get up infront of their family and peers to push themselves to the next level. I am hoping to grow a studio of eager individuals who are willing to try new things.
A typical voice lesson includes getting to know the student, understanding their current well-being and addressing any difficulties they may have faced that week. This is followed by working on vocal technique until about half-way through the lesson. Finally, the repertoire is approached with the goal of incorporating the improved vocal technique into his or her singing. I believe a healthy, quality vocal sound is founded on the principles of routine and ritual maintenance in collaboration with living a healthy lifestyle. I aspire to teach my students to never imitate my sound. Instead, I encourage them to imitate my musicality, phrasing, articulation, breath support, and rich tone while maintaining the integrity of their own voices. A typical piano lesson involves the same getting to know you process, but then moves right on to the technique (scales, sight-reading, harmony) and then the repertoire that was assigned. When a student is not getting a concept as explained in the lesson material, I tend to ask questions to improve their deductive reasoning capabilities and encourage them to come up with the answer on their own. This has proved to be extremely reliable in getting students to take ownership of the music-learning process and become more confident, intellectual musicians.

Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. The voice is contained within the body, so following a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress are all keys to keeping your body and voice healthy. Singers should avoid excess caffeine, smoking, and consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking, performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification, and singing for a prolonged amount of time without rest should all be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.

Students who take vocal lessons from a young age will learn safe, effective vocal techniques that are suited to the current level of ability and vocal maturity. Learning good vocal habits early on prevents the risk of injury or fatigue or possible misuse of the voice in the future. Students will also be exposed to a creative, fun, musical environment which can be good for their overall development and can help instill a positive attitude and hard working ethics through regular practice and lessons. Students of this age (11-12 years old) will generally work on pitch, basic techniques, and music theory.
During singing lessons, students of all abilities will learn and develop safe, effective vocal techniques that can be applied to a multitude of musical genres and styles. Students will learn how to properly warm their voices up by working through various exercises such as sirens, lip rolls and trills, and vocalizing various vowel sounds along to different scales. Lessons will cover topics such as vocal physiology and how the voice works so that students understand what a particular exercise achieves. Students will learn how to increase and strengthen their vocal range by learning how to bridge and connect their voices through the vocal break or passagio and into the head voice. Students can also work on their tone and breath support, and start applying these various techniques to singing actual songs. Students will also learn things such as music theory, song interpretation and style development, and can prepare for gigs and auditions.

Brett is an accomplished musician, who shared his knowledge at a level that my five year old understands. He is polite and relaxed in his mannerisms but take a serious approach to focusing on the lesson. He is very patient and engaging with the attention span you'd expect from a kindergartener. His motto ever is "sometime you learn faster by going slow"
Review by Maurice Romero
This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.

Rahsaan is an extremely talented player who relates really well with my teenagers. He has them both interested in learning. Given Rahsaan's expertise, it's clear that even though they are beginners now, they can learn from him for a long time to come. He's a real nice laid-back guy and both the boys really enjoy their time with him. I've been very impressed and pleased with the experience.
Review by Jennifer
Dave is a fantastic teacher. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to students that I think is invaluable. At the same time, this does not limit him from working with beginning students. He is very communicative with the parents as far as schedule changes. We are so grateful to have found him!!

My two daughters wanted to study piano fore some time now and just recently I found Musikalessons website and teacher Milica. I can only say that my daughters are very happy with their piano lessons and simply adore Milica. They already made a great progress and we're all happy with what they learned in this short period. Thank you Musikalessons and Milica.
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.
Review by Ashley S.
Ali was an amazing voice coach! She taught in a way that made sense to me, and helped me find the voice placements I needed. I didn't know I could sound like that! My development with her was leaps and bounds rather than tiny dreadful steps that happen when you don't know what's going on! Ali was dedicated to helping me work on an audition for a music scholarship and I nailed it all thanks to her, seriously. I can't thank her enough! She helped me with the tools and confidence I needed to sing in the real world alone rather than just back row in a large choir.
Review by Lucinda
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.

“My son and I have been taking lessons with Lynn for 5 or 6 years now. She is very patient with younger students (& older students having "senior moments"). She is also flexible in her lessons in that if we want to work on theory, jazz, rock, blues, she will cater to our requests.” – Karl B., C.P.A., Aug 2015
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.
