Starting as in intern in my middle school years, I've taught individual and group lessons for over 20 years. I guide students in their musical journeys using a variety of methods and resources. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and instilling a passion for learning and expressing through music in each of my students.
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'm an energetic and passionate instructor, who loves working with students of all ages and levels to share my love of music, and encourage growth! I am currently entering my final year of undergrad in Music Education at SUNY Buffalo State, with a classical voice concentration. I enjoy singing jazz as well in the surrounding Buffalo area, and have performed with the Buffalo Philharmonic Chorus.
I love to see my students building confidence in themselves as musicians. A connection with music is a lifelong journey, and I am pleased to help my students progress, no matter where they are along this path. I like to help my students set realistic goals and to give them the support, skills, and encouragement to reach those goals.
I love teaching music. I make the lessons fun and I am very easy to get along with. I work around you! I will not make you learn a style that you are not interested in. I plan my lessons in advance so that I am always prepared.I provide facts about the music business through out my lessons so the student understand more about being a musician. I am currently working on my third degree in music.

Students studying voice for the first time as an adult can look forward to working on vocal exercises and breathing techniques which can help improve their range and tone. Adult students may be interested in studying primarily classical vocal technique, or they may want to focus on different styles like pop or jazz. The instructors in our network can help you reach your musical and stylistic goals!
When you want to learn how to become a better singer, you need voice lessons. The instructors in Musika's network are trained in every genre and style, including Classical, Country, and R&B. We can help you prepare for national auditions or local competitions. You will receive customized lesson plans based on your musical goals and previous experience. As part of your lessons, you will learn how to protect and project your voice. You'll learn how to interpret songs, add emotion, and read music. Before you audition or perform, we'll teach you how to manage stage fright. In addition to these topics, learn: how to enjoy and express yourself with singing, breath control techniques, vocal cord protection, voice projection techniques, vocal volume improvement, how to read music, genre and style interpretation, and how to add emotion to songs, lyrics, and phrases.
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.
Voice lessons in your home offer a convenient and practical way to master the art of singing. Voice lessons in your home require a piano or keyboard for a teacher to utilize throughout your lesson. Whether you want to learn classical voice, jazz, pop, or musical theatre styles, our instructors can direct you to songs that suit your voice best.
Your health is crucial factor in keeping your voice feeling and sounding great! Suggestions offered by professionals include eating a healthy diet, getting enough sleep, practicing stress reduction techniques and getting regular exercise. It is important to drink enough water and to also avoid excessive amounts alcohol, taking antihistamines, and screaming or singing for an extended duration without rest, because this can damage your voice.

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

Laura is the kind of teacher you wish you had in all your studies: gracious, easy-going, light-hearted, yet behind the easy going exterior is an excellent musical mind with everything at her fingertips. I've had about 5 teachers in my life who count as really influential people, and Laura easily fits that category. She lets you be yourself so that you are fully present rather than old-school doctrinaire style, what I call "stiff as a German, sig-heil" teachers. She's the polar opposite. Brava, Laura! Thank you so much!

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.
Review by Howard
We value Chelsea for the quality of her lessons, but also for the flexibility of her schedule. She has worked around family vacations, impromptu summer camps and the upcoming school year. Emily is better prepared to start middle school band this year due to flute lessons from Chelsea and we plan to continue the lessons for the foreseeable future.
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.

Danette is a delightful instructor. She always brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to piano lessons with my daughter. She is not only skilled at piano, but she has a wonderful voice quality that she uses to help convey certain techniques and to highlight various points where she intends to draw the students attention.
Review by Steve Newman
My daughter began learning sax in her school band, but she didn't begin PLAYING sax until she started lessons with Debra. From scales and exercises to actual pieces, Debra coached my daughter with real insight, sensitivity, and patience. Her knowledge of the instrument and feeling for music - along with her easy-going,"kid friendly" personality - make Debra the ideal teacher and musical mentor.
Review by Kristin
Ted S. is teaching clarinet to one of my children, and piano to two others. He is extremely knowledgeable, and very encouraging. His teaching methods are keeping my children enthused about their lessons, and without that, you have nothing. Two of my children were taking piano lesson from another teacher for the past year, and not progressing. Ted has been able to evaluate their skills individually, determine what was missing in their music education, and begin again with some early basics they seem to have missed. I am convinced we are finally moving forward, and am very happy about that. I wish I would have made this change much earlier.
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.
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.
