I began taking piano lessons when I was about four years old and voice lessons when I was seven. I was involved in Certificate of Merit for voice and for piano. I studied music at UC Santa Cruz and graduated in 2012. I was exposed to many contemporary pieces and had a wonderful experience in a small but strong department. I have continued singing since graduating and love sharing music and the vocal technique I learned in my undergrad.
I had my first paying gig at 7 years old and have never looked back! Always striving to keep my repertoire relevant, I developed a great ear that allows me to learn many songs quickly. I always emphasize that in my teaching so that a student is not only playing, but actively listening too. My teaching method is very open and is tailored for each individual student. With some I do any combination of technique, theory, composition, and improvisation.
I have a long history of voice, theory of music and piano teaching from the beginning of my singing career. I come from family of teachers and musicians and feel that despite of my love for stage, teaching is my true destination. Even while I was very busy performing internationally, I always enjoyed teaching, and took time to accumulate as much as possible of knowledge and experience in order to prepare myself for the next and very important step in my life – becoming a voice teacher.
I'm a lover of music and want those who pursue music to be as well! I am passionately motivated as a musician, minister of music, and singer. I have performed throughout this nation as a guest musician and in my own backyard as a vocalist and musician. Even though my college was not specifically a school of music but of biblical academics, I as highly involved in anything that music was apart of eventually graduating and becoming the schools minister of worship. I have lived my life as a professional musician and singer and believe others can do the same if they are fully committed. I desire to help impart all of my experiences to the next upcoming generation of musicians and those who weren't able to pursue it in their earlier years, its never to late to chase a passion.
For beginning students, I use the Piano Adventure Series by Nancy Faber and Randall Faber. I also use the A Thousand Stories for a Little Pianist by Katrin Arefy. My special methods in teaching young students include stories, easy duets, and singing familiar folk songs. For intermediate level students, I use different method books according to the student's interests. However, I encourage them to play Classical music, which is very useful in developing good techniques in piano playing. I also encourage students to pick their own music. The most important goal is that students are learning music from different time periods, and is having fun.

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.
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.
Your voice is the one instrument that accompanies you wherever you go. Polish it with in-home voice lessons. Professional instructors in Musika's network arrive at your home ready to teach you how to choose songs that fit your voice, maximize your singing performance, and care for your instrument. All you need is a piano or keyboard, music, and your willingness to work. Whether you sing classical, country, or R&B, we can help you polish your voice. Prepare for a professional performance, an appearance on a reality singing competition, or a solo at a local event when you take in-home voice lessons.
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.
During voice lessons students will begin the wonderful journey into music interpretation and performance. To begin, students will focus on learning to read music, using breath control to support singing, and enhancing performance through the emotional interpretation of lyrics.

Martina has been teaching our daughter violin since early 2015. Every time our daughter has a lesson she comes away in such a great mood - she really enjoys her lessons! Martina is positive and encouraging and adjusts her teaching to help our daughter learn the best way for her learning needs. We were curious about how online lessons would work, and it turns out that they work really well. The 1:1 time and ability to teach from a distance make it work just as well as in person. We've had moves and schedule changes and Martina has been very flexible for us - which made such a big difference in making violin lessons accessible. Absolutely recommend her!

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 son is truly enjoying his lessons with Chris. He looks forward to them and is motivated to practice. Chris is conscientious and shows up on time and whenever he is supposed to. He communicates clearly if rescheduling is ever required and is accommodating when we need to change the day. I would recommend Chris to anyone.

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

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

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.

Travis is an extremely knowledgeable guitarist and teacher. Travis is equally comfortable in playing/teaching jazz, rock, blues, or classical styles. I really like the way he explains things and he has the ability to make difficult material seem simpler. Travis is very likeable, enthusiastic, and always very professional. I think Travis would be great teaching either children or adults because he's very patient. My learning experience with Travis has been outstanding. He taught me some great techniques for chord substitution and for soloing. I'll continue to work with Travis because he inspires me to be a better guitarist. I think he could really help me with composing because he writes some great songs too! Thanks Travis!

When I started with Darrell, I didn't know anything bout music. Nothing. We started with basic music theory & moved into scales and reading. It hasn't been very long at all, but my confidence is growing quickly. He does ask a lot from you and he expects you to keep up. But I can honestly say that if you are willing to work hard and spend the time at home doing what he asks, you will see the results. He wants you to succeed and takes pride in watching you grow. If you want it as bad as he does, you will see the result very quickly.

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!
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.
