I have 10 years of experience teaching voice. My mother is an opera singer and highly successful voice coach in Vienna, Austria and she not only was the best voice teacher I ever had, but also taught me to teach. Sharing my passion with other people has turned out to be one of the most rewarding things in my life. The joy, fun and often surprised looks on my student's faces when all of a sudden a beautiful tone comes out of their mouths, is just priceless!
In my music degree, I gained the knowledge to supplement my teaching abilities. For example, my Senior thesis allowed me to analyzing liturgy and musical form. When singing in choirs, I observed teachers. This assisted me gain a vast knowledge of music, as well as procure performance experience. Finally, all these experiences enabled me to gain the effective teaching skills to conduct a cohesive group or lesson. Because of these qualifications, my interaction with students comes naturally.
For beginning students: I like to introduce basic music concepts and fundamentals, such as rhythmic training and sight singing, while also building the student’s song repertoire based on musical selections they enjoy and could benefit from learning. For my adult and/or advanced students: I like to get an idea of where they are in their training or skill level, and create a curriculum and/ or musical goal based on their needs and wants. Here are some of the books I like to use for my lessons: Basics of Vocal Pedagogy (Clifton Ware) Vocal Workouts for the Contemporary Singer (Anne Peckham) Hal Leonard’s Sight-Singing For SSA (For Beginning & Intermediate Singers) Beginning Ear Training (Gilson Schachnik)
My teaching style varies according to my students. I try to find out what inspires the student so I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lessons.
My teaching experience started in high school and college. For five summers I was a camp counselor at my church. Singing was always part of the curriculum. I taught and led the kids in some of the most creative children's songs. It was wonderful to see the fun they were having. In 2006 I was Assistant Choir director for a children's church choir. I taught them their music and preformed with them to keep them motivated. I am looking forward to branching out into private teaching and bringing my love of music to students of all ages.

Voice lessons prepare your child for vocal auditions, competitions, and performances. Young children, however, are not physically prepared for formal voice training. Vocal cord damage or strain is a potential risk that comes with starting voice lessons too soon. For vocal protection and the best results, we recommend kids wait and take voice lessons after they reach puberty, or around 11 or 12 years of age. The vocal cords are more mature at that time, and kids minimize the risks of prolonged damage when they wait until after puberty to take voice lessons from the professional instructors in our network.
Voice lessons will focus on developing proper breathing technique and vocal technique and ways to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice, and how to read music so that you can read the melody of the singing line. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, performance techniques, and how to emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!
With a healthy body, you sing clearly and protect your vocal cords. Maintain a healthy body by eating a balanced diet, exercising, and resting. Start with balanced meals. They should include whole grains, vegetables, and fruits. Avoid sugary foods and drinks, and choose water instead. Exercise every day. Aerobic sports increase your body's fitness levels and improve your ability control your voice as you sing. Every night, sleep soundly when you stick to a relaxing bedtime routine and limit distractions. Finally, rest your voice. Speak softly and limit yelling. With these tips, you'll be able to maintain a healthy body and sing clearly.

Dan gave private clarinet lessons to my daughter, Annie, for two years. During that time, she excelled as a member of the middle school band, and maintained first-chair. Dan is an excellent teacher, and Annie looked forward to having one-on-one time with him. In addition to practicing pieces with her, he helped her with scales and greatly improved her tone quality.

Karleen has really turned it around for me. My previous teacher (not from Musika) had me feeling anxious, upset, and incapable...NOT the desired result! Karleen's method is clear, appropriate for my beginning level, and (best of all) actually lets me achieve some progress! I'm actually looking forward to my lessons now!
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.

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 Susan
My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.

"Richard is a very talented and a patient teacher. He teaches my 6 year old daughter in the comfort of our home and he is very regular. He follows a learning book and mixes his lessons to bring difficulty and technicality while keeping it interesting for my daughter. My daughter was difficult to work with at the beginning but he was able motivate her in every possible way. As a parent I make an effort to learn with my daughter so that when my daughter practices I am able to guide and correct her and Richard is very generous to take the time to give provide me concepts. I am extremely happy with Richard and his ability to teach children."

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 Justin
I've been taking lessons from Michael once a week for eight weeks now, and with his help I have made dramatic improvements with my sax. Michael is a funny, nice, patient and all around great instructor. I'd recommend Michael, as an instructor, to anyone who wants to improve their skills and have fun while doing it.
Review by Brenda Duffey-jepsen
Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.
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.
