A private lesson is a fluid conversation between teacher and student. My goal in every lesson is to allow my student to feel at ease and successful while pushing them to the next level. By setting clear goals and sequencing each lesson appropriately, my students feel a sense of true accomplishment immediately. For my youngest students, lessons are disguised as play. They learn how to play their instrument, aural skills, and sight reading skills while being engaged with songs, chants, dances, games, and even art based activities.
I specialize in teaching students from age 12 to adults. With a background in public school music, I am experienced both with the developing voice, and the demands of growing an instrument the right way when school focus on vocal development is limited. I teach classical vocal technique and work with students on all types of music, in different languages. I can help you develop a solid technique; teach you how to apply it to different styles; and coach you in interpretation. I have students moving on in music school at the conservatory level, and students who just enjoy singing in their school or community choirs and theatre groups.
I have taught one-on-one lessons for guitar, voice, piano, and trumpet for multiple years. My lessons are student-driven so that the learner can begin to critically think about and perform music on their own without the constant "need" for a teacher. I have taught a wide-range of learners of different ages and abilities. With the guidance from me, learners feel confident in their ability to successfully perform.

Our adult voice lessons are taught by qualified teachers who will come up with an individual lesson plan suited to your goals and needs. Teachers in our network specialize in many genres of music, from classical to contemporary, and can offer you practical techniques and guidance. Voice lessons are structured to include time for warm ups, technique exercises, and repertoire study. Adults take a 45 minute or 1 hour lesson once a week.
Taking voice lessons is one way your child can prepare for a reality singing show competition or a career as a vocal performer. Prematurely starting voice lesson could cause vocal damage or strain, though. We recommend children wait until they are 11 or 12 years old. At that time, a child is undergoing puberty, and his or her vocal cords are mature enough to handle the rigorous training involved in voice lessons. Waiting is difficult for kids, but the benefits include vocal protection. Your child is more likely to succeed at auditions and performances when he or she waits until puberty for formal vocal training.
Voice lessons will focus on developing proper breathing and vocal technique to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice even as you learn to read music. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, develop performance techniques, and emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!
Whilst singing is certainly a physical endeavor that requires effort, it should always be performed safely and with comfort. If there is any pain or discomfort when singing, you should stop immediately. If such problems persist after resting the voice for a few days, then singers are advised to visit a doctor as continuous soreness could be a sign of a serious vocal problem such as nodules. The biggest culprit of vocal health problems is singing with bad technique. This can include shouting, straining when singing, or attempting advanced techniques such as distortion without qualified instruction. To help prevent the risk of injury or fatigue, singers should warmup before vocalizing and remain hydrated.
In-home voice lessons are the perfect gift for budding singers. Talented kids and adults appreciate the instructors in Musika's network who know how to coax the right notes out of any musician. Whether your child is into hip-hop or prefers classical music, the experienced instructors in our network provide guidance on music selection and vocal care. Your singer simply walks into the music room when it's time for lessons and prepares to sing. Give the budding singers in your life a chance to explore their talent. You never know, in-home voice lessons may be just what you need as you nurture America's next great recording artist.

Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.

My daughter, Valarie is one of the original members of the Enrichment Center Percussion Ensemble under the guidance of Aaron. He patiently worked with Valarie as well as the other five members individually and as a group to produce music that has been shared and enjoyed locally as well as nationally. He has the ability to seek out the strengths of each student while building confidence. Through his teachings, not only had Valarie learned how to produce and enjoy music, but also responsibility and so many life skills for everyday living.

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.

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!

I am in my 60s and decided to get back into playing my guitar. I thought taking lessons would be a good way to formalize the endeavor. I did have some concern about whether working with a teacher would work out as I've behave only played for my own enjoyment for a long time. Peter and I have had a few lessons together and I am truly enjoying the experience. He is very supportive and flexible. We arrived at a three gold approach that is really working for me. We focus on developing a playlist, learning some of the more iconic tunes from leading artist that I would have a hard time learning on my own and developing some technical skills related to style and music theory. Now I look forward to my next lesson and am already playing better and enjoying the journey. Peter is a great teacher I'm lucky to have the opportunity to work with him.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons through her school district program for the last two years. She had learned a lot in that class but I noticed that she needed advanced classes at this point. After reviewing several websites I decided to enroll my daughter for the trial at MUSIKA. We got Mrs. Veronica B., and I am more than happy we got her as my daughter's teacher. Mrs. Veronica B. was very professional and very knowledgeable at the trial day. She was able to assess my daughter skill's level, and then she was able to give suggestions about how to improve those skills. My daughter has taken 5 classes with Mrs. Barker, and I can see she enjoys each class and she's improved a lot since day one. I can picture my daughter playing her favorites songs on the piano very soon!!! :-)

My son enjoys his viola lesson each week with Martina. She is disciplined in her approach to teaching but always makes my son's learning experience enjoyable. She knows how to challenge him and develop excellent form. Martina is always punctual and professional. We both highly recommend her as an instructor.

Travis rocks. My 7-year-old son and I both take lessons with him. Travis has moved me off the plateau I was on with lessons that focus on theory and technique. And for my son, he's been able to instill a desire and interest that were missing when he previously took piano lessons. With Travis teaching us, the limits are the ones we impose on ourselves. Needless to say, Travis himself plays a mean guitar to boot!
Review by Roberta
My 4 year old son is quite energetic. Another piano teacher tried to teach him before Peter and could not get my son to listen to him at all. That teacher told me that my son had no interest and that we needed to wait before having my son take lessons. Peter started teaching my son a few weeks later. He quickly developed a great rapport with my son. I was astounded when my son sat down and listened to Peter during the first lesson. Peter has remarkable patience and is a natural working with children. He knows when to follow the child's lead. My son is very interested in how the piano works, so Peter takes the time to teach him about this. He is able to use my son's interests (superheroes, Lego, Star Wars, etc.) to refocus him back to playing the piano. Between lessons, he brainstorms on how he can teach my son better. For example, my son was playing the notes, but not understanding rhythm, so Peter looked into it and came back the next week with a new plan which helped. My son looks forward to his lesson every week. When he hears the doorbell ring on lesson day, he exclaims, "Yay! Peter's here!"
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.
