For beginning students, my aim is always to nourish the love of music that brought the student into the studio. I am comfortable exploring any musical style or ambition with my students, and relish in learning alongside my pupils. For the young and old alike, I emphasize music literacy through piano basics - I believe that a basic understanding of the keyboard is essential for any meaningful musical education. With my voice students, I focus on synthesizing mind, body and spirit to unlock the true potential within every voice. I utilize mindful meditations to explore the anatomical realities within your own body - your own instrument - and then strive to bring this new awareness into your performance. There are few other joys that can rival knowing how to use your own body to make music!
I like to assess where the student is before I make assignments. I also try to find out what is of interest to the student and try to tailor rep assignments to their wants and needs.
I like students to learn their favorite songs while incorporating technical elements as well.
I have been teaching piano for over twenty years. My teaching philosophy is that every piano lesson should be fun. For young beginners, I focus on basic technique. The reason is that it is very important to form good playing skills right from the beginning. For older students, I broaden their musical knowlege by introducing piano literature from different time periods. I also encourage them to pick songs that they like to play. My goal is that every student is having fun in each lesson.

The voice can become easily fatigued through misuse or overuse. The best way to avoid vocal fatigue is to avoid shouting or screaming, get plenty of rest, and drink plenty of water. For voices that are already fatigued, warm ups and exercises performed lightly and at low volume levels can help to reinvigorate the voice and balance the air pressure above and below the vocal folds. The voice can also become irritated by things such as mucus, often a result of allergies or illness, sugary foods, and alcohol. If ill, either avoid singing altogether or keep to short, light sessions.
During their lessons, students will learn how to sing with good, safe, and effective vocal technique. Learning to sing with good technique is the cornerstone to improving the tone, range, and health of the voice during singing. Students will learn how to warm up properly, how to increase their vocal range, how to improve and strengthen their tone, performance techniques, how to accurately replicate pitch, how to support their singing with good breathing techniques, song interpretation and how to apply these techniques to singing their favorite songs. Vocal technique is not genre specific and the techniques taught can be applied to almost any genre of music. Students will develop these skills by vocalizing to piano scales. These vocal exercises are things such as singing different vowel sounds on different scales, sirens, lip rolls and trills, articulation exercises, and respiratory exercises. The exercises are tailored to the specific needs and ability levels of each individual student.
If singing is your passion, consider in-home voice lessons. The instructors in Musika's network provide individualized and customized lessons based on your needs and wants. Instead of wasting time driving to lessons, dust off your piano, buy affordable sheet music, and welcome an instructor into your home. He or she can teach you how to project, control, and protect your voice, and our network has teachers experienced in teaching any type of music, from classical to modern. Prepare for professional competitions or improve your vocal abilities for recreational singing with in-home voice lessons. Then enjoy exercising your musical passion, and sing!
Adults start taking singing lessons for a variety of reasons. Some students maybe sang in their younger days such as in their school or church choir and want to start singing again, others aspire to become a recording artist and some want to prepare themselves for auditions such as The X-Factor, American Idol, or The Voice. Advanced students may want to work on a specific technique such as building strength in the head voice or improving their support and breath management. Singing is a great way to express yourself creatively and can also develop confidence and self-esteem in students of all ages and abilities.
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.

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!"

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 honestly cannot say enough positive things about Rachel. We met her through CYT where my daughter took theater classes from Rachel and was directed by Rachel in several musicals. Because Rachel was so wonderful to work with and so clearly talented at teaching and directing, several years ago, my daughter started private vocal lesson with her and I have seen my daughter's vocal abilities grow in leaps and bounds. Rachel is an ace at picking music to work on that stretches abilities while at the same time, keeps vocal lessons fun. I highly recommend her as a voice and theater coach.

Andrew is very encouraging and uplifting, but also isn't afraid to tell you your weaknesses. Andrew also is super awesome with scheduling. Fits around your schedule all the time. He really knows what he is doing and can help you reach your goal in the time you would like to. Couldn't have gotten a better teacher, who continually helps me grow and pushes me.

I was skeptical at first not knowing what I was getting my self into.. I am very happy that I forced myself to get into voice lessons because Eli is an awsome voice coach.. Very skillful and he helps you reach the goal you are trying to reach.. He is also very helpful with getting you to open up and come out of your shell and being heard.. I would and I already have recommended friends and family to sign up with Eli if they're serious about singing..

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.
Review by Lauren Segal
Ed is THE best instructor I've ever had and I've had many instructors over the years in various fields of study. Ed met us at a music store to help choose a guitar, this is after he first called and asked all the right questions. He's supplied my daughter with just the right amount of paper work and just the right amount of new techniques. By this I mean to say that Ed connects with the pace my daughter learns at. I highly recommend Ed AND Musika.
Review by Terri
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.

Lara is highly intelligent and knowledgeable in her profession. She is cheerful and personable, and has established a good rapport with students and staff alike. I have found Lara to be a highly competent, personable, patient, kind-hearted, and deeply caring person who is skilled professionally and interpersonally.
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.
