I love explaining and sharing music with people. I love engaging with students and bringing them from their current level to a higher level of artistic knowledge and musicianship. As an opera singer, recitalist and musical theater performer-I bring a lot of experience and legacy to pass down to my students. I love being able to empower them to do their very best. I am so blessed to be a teacher and performer!
I believe music should be a lot of fun. There should never be anything scary about learning something new to become a better person. I try to guide people through their musical journey as pleasantly as I can. That being said, hard work and perseverance are essential qualities for a beginning musician. Simply put, the more you put in, the more you'll get. I look forward to working with you.
I understand that everyone learns differently so I do my best to approach every topic from several angles. Music will be learned by sight, sound, and even the feel of chorepgraphy to help all types of students complete thier goals
Started flute at the age of eight. I started studying privately in high school, then decided to pursue degrees and careers in music. I have participated in a handful of pit orchestras for musicals around the Central and Western New York areas, performed solos for various competitions, and have participated in several ensembles throughout my time as an undergraduate student. I also score study chamber works in my free time.
I began my teaching experience at Brigham Young University, where I taught voice as well as advanced sight singing to students with a wide variety of backgrounds and experiences privately and in group settings. In addition, I have played the piano for over ten years. My goal is to always inspire students in the brief period of time we have together to work on their own time and apply the techniques discussed during the rest of the week. I believe in achieving this through constructive feedback, and for this reason, I am always careful to point out the techniques the students are applying successfully in addition to what they need to work on. I want my students to enjoy creating music and always feel good about what they are able to achieve. I also believe in teaching a natural, healthy and strong technique to serve as a solid foundation that will work for any musical style. My goal for each student is for them to gain a passion for music and have fun during our time together. I enjoy sharing my love of music and watching students progress in both their musical development as well as their appreciation for music.

Have you always wanted to be a singer? You are never too old to learn how to sing or to become a better singer. Musika offers individualized adult voice lessons geared to your needs. Learn to sing Pop, Jazz, or Classical music, or prepare for a national competition like American Idol or The Voice. Expand your vocal range or learn how to choose songs that compliment your voice. No matter what your musical goals are, the professional instructors in our network are here to help train you to become a better singer whether you've just started singing now or have been singing since you were a child.
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 straining. Many of the instructors in our network are capable of working with younger students under this 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.
Musika vocal lessons are based on teaching students good, safe vocal technique that can be applied to a wide range of musical genres and singing styles. Students of all abilities and experience will be catered to, as lessons are devised to suit the requirements of each individual student. Beginner students will work on their pitch, tone, and vocal range by doing various exercises such as sirens, singing different vowels along a scale, and learning how to properly support the voice through breath management. These exercises are designed to build strength, timing, and coordination in order to traverse the passagio, allowing students to sing notes in their head voice register, thus extending their range. Students can also develop their song interpretation skills, performance techniques, and style development. As students advance, they can learn techniques and skills such as messa di voce, runs and fills, vibrato, and genre-specific techniques like distortion in Rock singing or covering the voice for Musical Theatre or Classical singing.
Keeping your voice healthy starts with keeping your entire body healthy. Eating a balanced diet, getting adequate sleep, and reducing stress are all keys to keeping your body, and voice, healthy. Singers should avoid excess caffeine, smoking, consumption of alcohol and drugs. Excessive screaming, speaking or singing for long periods of time, and performing in loud or crowded places without proper amplification should be avoided. Singers should always stay hydrated by drinking purified water, and try to stay away from sugary drinks and colas.
In home voice lessons are a convenient way to learn the art of singing! Our instructors are qualified to teach a variety of styles ranging from Opera to R&B. If you are interested in auditioning for local competitions or even reality tv shows like American Idol or The Voice, our network of instructors can definitely help you prepare. Most voice lesson music and materials can be purchased online or at a local music store.

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!!

I have known Erin since I attended graduate school at the Hartt School in Connecticut. Last year she came to the college I teach at to give a master class and talk about her experiences as a musician abroad. She has proven that she is a capable and wonderful musician and educator. I highly recommend studying with her if you're lucky enough to have the opportunity!

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.

Very knowledgeable on every aspect of music theory. I listen to recording artists playing various classical pieces, Dan's playing is much like a recording artist's playing. Always on time. Winning happy personality, a great role model. Puts me at ease when I am playing. Have two friends who hold music degrees, I count him a third, something special about the minds and personalities of good pianists. Thanks Dan.

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.

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!

We've only had a few lessons with Elisa, but so far we really like her. She has a lot of great suggestions for solo pieces as well as orchestral music that involves all 3 of my boys, while also including some Christian music that we can play at church. She is very patient in explaining the lessons and encouraging!

David is not only a great musician and educator but also a delightful human. We began using David six years ago as a piano teacher for my two boys. Since then my eldest moved on to acoustic and electric guitar and my youngest electric and stand up bass. Somewhere along the way I began to take guitar lessons also (I was David's most bearded student at age 48). David always came prepared to lead but also to follow, he often asked what we were listening to and taught us how to play it. His ability to listen to a piece of music and transcribe it always left me amazed, we have several notebooks full of songs we learned individually or played as a group. After a shoulder injury David continued to impress by teaching me music theory instead of our usual lesson. I could go on forever, David made a positive impact on my family and feel fortunate to have met him.

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!
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.
