Every musician is an individual, with her/his own life experiences, prior knowledge, and fears/dreams. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to understand my students' unique goals and needs, and assist achievement in whatever way I can. I ask a lot of questions - both to increase my understanding of a student, and to gauge their understanding of concepts we're covering. I encourage the use of a lesson/practice journal to track progress, in addition to recording lessons and practice sessions for reference.
I model my teaching from Ms Dorthy DeLay. The key to teaching is firm foundation but also a personable attitude and strong patience. If a student is having a hard time learning then I take the proper steps to make it clear and easy for them without the stress and anger of failure.
I love to see my students enjoy learning music and gain confidence as they realize their musical potential. This can only be accomplished in a safe and healthy environment where my students are able to express themselves without fear of rejection or judgement. At the first voice lesson, I have my students list their musical goals and what they hope to achieve. Through positive affirmation, I am able to help them reach their goals and develop a passion for music. I have been privileged to work with many great mentors and have had a variety of rewarding performing and teaching opportunities. I am constantly learning from my students, which helps me to become a better teacher and performer. I hope to inspire my audience, as well as my students.
In voice lessons, skills must be broken down into component parts so that students achieve success. I use vocal exercises as etudes to teach specific content such as accessing ones entire vocal range. My students are given simultaneous praise and feedback to help acheive desired skills. A recent student whose range has been increasing has reported regularly that she feels accomplished following her lessons.
For children, I keep it simple and fun, using a variety of methods to help them not only learn a song/songs, but the fundamentals of music reading, and theory. For older individuals, I prefer to work with their interests, and work towards their goals, through tailored lessons. I use a wide variety of styles, and challenge students to look outside their comfort zone-on occasion- to give them a larger repetoire that they may not have thought of. I also encourage all my students to share the pieces they love and wish to learn for fun or purpose.

Adult voice students want to learn how to sing better. If that describes you, achieve your goal with instruction from experienced instructors from Musika's network. These instructors can teach proper breathing techniques, voice control, and vocal exercises. Additionally, the professional teachers in our network have experience in every musical genre. As an adult student, learn to sing Jazz, Pop, Country, Classical, and a variety of specific styles within each genre. Musical instructors help you choose songs that fit your voice and prepare for national competitions, regional auditions, or personal enjoyment. If learning how to sing better is one skill you want, adult voice lessons will help you reach that goal.
A healthy voice requires a healthy body. Start by exercising every day. Swimming, running, and playing sports improve your body, lungs, and heart health and lead to a healthy voice. Then eat a nutritious diet. Load up on vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Limit sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. You'll also want to stop smoking because it damages your voice. Rest is also important. Make time to get enough sleep every night, and try to reduce stress. Rest your voice too by avoiding yelling, screaming, or cheering. As you care for your body, you also care for your voice and keep it strong and healthy.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home singing lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule. For younger students in particular, having vocal lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying their 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.
The focus of singing lessons will be to teach students how to sing using proper technique in a safe way. Students will work on a variety of different vocal exercises that are designed to build strength, coordination, and add power to the voice. Students will learn how to bridge and connect their vocal registers in order to expand their vocal range, add vibrato to their singing, and learn how to properly support the voice in order to sing long passages and create a strong, full sounding vocal tone. For students with pitch problems, teachers can work through specific exercises to address such issues and get students singing on pitch. Students will learn how to put the various techniques and exercises that are taught into practical use by singing songs. The techniques taught can be applied to a variety of musical genres, from Metal to Pop. Students can also learn music theory and vocal physiology.

After moving from NY and parting from our amazing piano instructor, we thought we couldn't find a piano teacher close to what we knew. We are happy to say Musika matched us up with someone professional and friendly who enjoys teaching younger students. Thank you! We definitely recommend Kuan as a piano instructor :)

Mrs. Regnarene is an awesome teacher!!! She found musical aids that appealed to my 5 year old daughter and used them to help teach her piano. She has a lot of patience and I could tell she puts in the work before class to have a lesson ready for my daughter. She is always punctual, friendly and respectful. I would recommend her to any parents who want to start their kids off with a good foundation in piano. Jermain T. Riverview, FL

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.
Review by Travis Dalenberg
Travis is the greatest. He knows his music and how to teach it. He gives you time to learn, but will not allow student time to get lazy. I know he teaches all age groups. Young pre-teens to us old folks 78 years young. I have been taking lessons from him since early December 2014. He is a true professional. You can't go wrong with him.

Darrell is A-Maz-Ing! He demands results from his students and therefore results come quickly. The time he spends teaching is intense and packed with great instruction. He is a tough teacher but offers lots of valuable instruction that is applicable for music as well as life in general. I highly recommend Darrell if you are ready for results!
Review by Pat
Henry has been a great piano teacher since I started lessons about a month ago, and he is helping me realize a lifelong dream. He is patient, plays beautifully, is easy to learn from and a very nice person. I took lessons as a child for a year or so, but never followed up over the years. I always said that I would once I retired and found the right instructor. That time is now. Thank you Henry and Musika!
Review by Ryan Piveteau
Amber is personal and cares about her students. She is flexible in her schedule and maintains a professional attitude in her lessons. Her want for her students to succeed makes her excel as a teacher. She is very knowledgeable about music and extremely experienced. Additionally, she includes external activities aside from lessons for the students who wish to advance themselves externally. Really a great teacher who offers great opportunity.
Review by Alamu Vinai
Usually I don't write reviews. I am compelled to write for Feng. I've experience finding/working with many music teachers over the years for different instruments (piano, flute, sax) for kids. I think Feng is the best, he is so passionate about music, he encourages the kids. He teaches thoroughly - you can tell he knows lot about saxophone. I would definitely recommend Feng!!

Vince is a great drum teacher for my 8 year old son. We go to his house where he has a studio setup with a huge drum set. He has been very patient but really holds my son responsible for learning the right way to play. After about 5 lessons, my son is playing some rhythms on the drums and reading music. He looks forward to his lessons with Vince.
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.
