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.
For every one of my beginning students who wants to start playing the guitar or singing, I will alway start them off the best and most knowlegable way I know how, which would be a beginners guide. I started with Hal Leonard's Essential book 1 when I first started learning, and I have always used Hal Leonard's Essential guides for my students. If a student is an intermediate, I can find out where they're at and help them with any handicaps they may have, and point them in the right direction. ***Important note: I am able to teach online via SKYPE or FACETIME as well as in home or studio.
For over 10 years I have been teaching private voice. I have held teaching positions with several universities to include the University of North Carolina at Pembroke and Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina. At Methodist University I also taught Italian, German, and French diction to vocal performance majors. My students consist of actors, dancers, and singers of opera, musical theatre, jazz and pop. Some students have gone on to professional careers in acting and musical theatre.
Among my numerous performing credits I have belonged to North Babylon Knights Drum Corps. Islanders Drum & Bugle Corps, High School & college Wind Ensembles, Orchestras (both classical & for musicals), Jazz bands, Hebrew choir, Opera and musicals in college ( stage). Currently perform musical an plays with Plant City Entertainment and The Village Players in Valrico as well as Brandon Stage Door. I have always felt that my teaching begins with my dedication and love for music. I encourage creativity but also stress the basics. Learn and perform as the music is written. This was a constant goal of my college professor and it has stuck with me to this day.
I have been teaching out of my home off and on the last 25 years. I've been the master piano teacher, rock band teacher and concert director at a music performance school the last few years but I'm back to my basic love of teaching since I've just relocated to the West coast. Because progression will produce a passion for your instrument whether it's piano or vocals, I emphasize regular and consistent weekly practice at home with times varying depending on age and proficiency. I will always motivate them to not only learn to fluently use their instrument but following through to a polished delivery by participating in recitals, concerts and other performance opportunities. Composition, technique, theory and songwriting are all a part of what I teach, so I love and promote different genres to challenge each student and keep them engaged. I'm always looking to add a few more students!

Learn to sing your favorite songs with adult voice lessons. Instructors in Musika's network are skilled in every genre and musical style. Whether you want to master Opera classics, ace modern Pop, or specialize in Country, we can help you improve your skills and abilities. Start by learning vocal exercises and breathing techniques that improve your skill. Then choose songs that fit your vocal tone and range. Finally, learn to project your voice, control your breathing, and show emotions while you sing. As your singing skill increases, enter national or regional competitions and feel more confident on stage while singing your favorite songs.
Musika offers one-on-one, in-home singing lessons that are designed specifically for each individual student. Whether your lesson takes place in the studio or at home, students will get the exact same lesson content, with the only difference being the location. Parents will find home singing lessons a much more convenient option for their child, as it saves the time and costs of transporting their children to and from the studio. Younger students will find that learning to sing in the comfort of their own homes greatly benefits their development as they are learning in a supportive, secure, and familiar environment.
For children who want to learn how to sing, we recommend beginning voice lessons at age 11 or 12. The vocal instrument, unlike other instruments, is attached to the body. Starting voice lessons too young, or when the student is not emotionally ready or mature, can lead to vocal damage or strain. Many of the instructors in our network are capable of working with younger students under the recommended age, but it is our opinion, and the opinion of many other Vocal Education professionals, that the student should wait until their body has begun the process of puberty before beginning voice lessons.
Voice lessons improve your singing ability and your vocal performance. Whether you want to audition for a national reality show or prepare for a theatrical performance, the instructors in Musika's network are here to help. These professional teachers create a customized lesson plan for each student that helps you meet your singing goals. We help you discover the best singing genre and style for your voice, and we can guide your song choice. Typically, your teacher will assign you an affordable method book or other supplemental materials for practice. You can find these books online or at local music stores. A partial list of topics you may learn during voice lessons includes, proper breathing control techniques, how to support your voice and increase volume, voice projection tips, how to read musical notation, how to interpret song lyrics and phrases with expression and emotion, and audition and performance tips and techniques, including overcoming stage fright.
The art of singing is a physical endeavor that requires fine muscular strength and coordination of the voice and respiratory mechanisms. As such, a good warm up is essential before a performance or at the start of a lesson or practice session, and will help to prevent injury. The vocal folds are very delicate and can be easily damaged through misuse, such as bad technique or shouting, or overuse, such as practicing for too long or generally using the voice for long periods at a time (such as public speaking), which can cause vocal fatigue. It is important to maintain good hydration levels and get plenty of sleep for vocal recovery.

After my first piano lesson, Polina is easily the best teacher I could have hoped for. Extremely charismatic and excited to help YOU learn the piano. She puts a lot of effort into evaluation your learning style and will no doubt help you make tremendous strides! I'm stoked to continue taking lessons!
Review by Debbie E.
I had always wanted to take vocal lessons, but was very nervous about it until I had the opportunity to have Ali as my instructor. She made me feel very comfortable and helped me realize my strengths while giving me other areas to work on and strengthen. I liked how Ali had me sing out of my "comfort" zone to realize my vocal range. It is obvious that Ali loves music and sharing that love with her students. She is very good at what she does and works well with both male and female voices. I highly recommend Ali and give her solid 5 stars

“Lynn has taught my daughter guitar for 9 years. She has always managed to keep her engaged and provide an exceptional learning experience. She tailors the lesson specifically to the student’s interests and abilities. She provides many opportunities for students to showcase their talents outside of lessons. We love working with Lynn.” Maureen Young, Dir. of Finance, Aug 2015

Ileen is a very attentive instuctor. she is patient and works hard to see her student succeed. if a concept is unclear she expains it in other ways to ensure understanding. I would highly recommend ileen to students of all levels who want to learn guitar and music theory to thoroughly enjoy the instrument and music
Review by Emily
Steve gets you started right away with songs but also goes into music theory and reading music which adds to understanding and appreciation of the music. He is very approachable and you can tell that he absolutely loves music and teaching. It is hard not to be excited about the process of learning with Steve. If you are considering lessons I highly recommend Steve for any level of student.
Review by Dylan Jacinto
Jessie is the finest musician I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I find her overall concept of approaching an instrument to be both comprehensive and effective. Each technique she has acquired has made it possible for her to tailor her method to a variety of ages and individuals. I cannot speak more highly of Miss Jessie's abilities. Her lengthy and impressive cradecials speak for themselves. I recommend no hesitation in seeking her services!
Review by Wendy
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 Suzette
She is amazing! My daughter, Isabella (7 yrs) is totally engaged in the lesson. Lilly's definitely has a gift with teaching young children!!! A great talent of hers is making the content interesting, current to today's music and most of all fun! She has a knack for taking the material and translating it in a way that is relatable to Isabella. My daughter really enjoys her lesson's and has moved along rather quickly with the material. Thanks Lilly!
Review by Julie Buranelli
My daughter really enjoys her lessons with Pavel. She is an absolute beginner and Pavel is right with her as she learns the basics. She is completely engaged and always looks forward to her lesson. He packs a lot of learning into their 30 minute time slot - he gets right to it as soon as he walks in the door! He is a great teacher - we highly recommend!
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.
