I am a very motivated instructor who loves sharing my love and passion for music. I graduated from Glenwood High School in 2004. I then went on to Western Illinois University where I studied jazz on trumpet. I also went to Lincoln Land Community College with a Jazz performance major on trumpet and piano. I taught choir at Lanphier High School during the main choir teacher's medical leave. I played at Walt Disney World in 2005 as a fill-in on trumpet. I have traveled across the country and internationally as well. I have opened for and performed in major national acts across the country. My teaching career started in early 2001, including private instruction in piano, trumpet, and voice.
For beginners I like to start with using John W. Schaum's Music book as well as helping them to learn basic music theory in order to be able to keep time and know how to read music. I help them to know their music scales so that they know them by heart when playing music. I also inspire my students to join recitals in school as well as encourage them to practice daily as well as play with others. For adult students I try to find their skills. Once I know they have passed beginner skills we can investigate their methods of playing as well as their skills, likes and what area they need to concentrate on to improve and flourish. I encourage all students to choose music they like and help them achieve their goal of playing that song, style or genre.
I have been giving private music lessons for the past 10 years to students of all age groups. I am always looking to broaden the minds of aspiring beginners and the advanced players who seek to further their musical odyssey's. I enjoy all genres of music. I feel that to be inspired you have to have an appreciation to all styles, for it will keep you more open minded to all possibility's of learning, writing and performing music. I feel that music through it's ability to envoke many feelings and emotions, it can help break barriers, it can help with basic reading, writing, and arithmetic. As well as motor skills I like to make my lessons fun, easy and fullfilling for everyone so they may attain every possible amount of knowledge through my teachings.

For a strong and healthy voice, maintain a strong and healthy body. First, exercise every day. Jogging, swimming, or biking improves your body's stamina and fitness. Then choose foods and beverages that fuel your body with nutrition. Vegetables, fruits, lean proteins, whole grains, and water are excellent dietary choices. Next, rest your voice. Singing, yelling, or talking loudly during the day can harm your vocal cords. Smoking is bad for your voice too. Finally, get enough physical rest. Go to bed on time each night and reduce stress. As you maintain your healthy body, you also maintain a healthy voice.
We teach singing to adults of all ages, each of whom have different aims and goals in mind. For many adults, they want to learn how to sing simply for fun or for their karaoke nights. For others, they may want to develop their voices with the goal of becoming a professional vocalist in mind. Advanced students often want to learn a few specific techniques or work on some exercises, such as increasing their range, improving their support, singing with distortion, vibrato, etc. We have a range of experienced teachers in our network who can help with your specific goals.
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!
Students can have fun learning how to sing from as young as 11 or 12 years old. As students of this age are approaching puberty, their voices are not fully matured, so care must be taken not to place too much pressure or strain on the voice for fear of risking injury. That said, through lessons and practice, students can learn safe vocal techniques, how to look after their voices, develop their ability to hear and recreate pitch, and work on their musical theory. Students can also improve their concentration levels, confidence, and self-esteem.
One-on-one customized voice lessons in your home saves you time. Musika offers convenient lessons so you don't have to drive to a studio, fight traffic, or take valuable time away from other responsibilities. Simply provide a keyboard or piano, and buy sheet music from a music store. Then get ready to learn how to sing. Our network has experienced teachers of every musical genre. In the comfort and safety of your home, enjoy personalized voice lessons that teach you how to sing for pleasure or performance. Without wasting time, learn to sing with in-home voice lessons.

Caitlyn is friendly, helpful and still holds my high-school aged daughter accountable for practicing. She also makes sure the music technique is mastered correctly during the lessons - they work hard and still have a good time together. I can highly recommend her as a flute teacher. My daughter is very happy & grateful to have found Caitlyn as a teacher.

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.

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.

Martina has been a great teacher. Our son is 8 and had taken some piano lessons before starting with Martina. She came right in and got him to improve. She does a great job of giving him just enough of a challenge to make him work and learn but not any pieces that are so overwhelming he can't get them. She has helped him through a lot of early music theory so that he not only can play the piano but understands the music he is reading in all of its complexity.
Review by Valerie Moore
Kevin is very friendly and professional trombone teacher. During the first session he assessed my 12 year old son's strengths and identified areas for development. He has helped him refine his technique which helps our son in band class but also has him working on duets that help him grow in new ways. He comes to our home and is always very punctual. I would highly recommend Kevin!
Review by Jon
Michael is exactly what I was looking for in a teacher. The first thing he did was to determine what I wanted to get out of lessons, and what my existing skill level is. He is now aiming me in the right direction - and he is clearly skilled, experienced and knowledgeable, in addition to being very easy to get along with. I'm very happy.
Review by Ruslan
She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!
Review by Jeremy
Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.

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.
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.
