My teaching experience began 10 years ago when I taught flute lessons to students at the local middle school. However, when I was attending the Manhattan School of Music, I was a voice major so I really needed to focus on singing and I decided to only teach voice lessons after that. I studied with some of the most well-respected voice teachers of this generation, and they helped me to become not only a better singer, but also a better teacher. I find it so rewarding to watch my students succeed and become more confident performers. I believe that is my primary job as a teacher: to inspire singers to find their true voice and to give them the tools to sing in a healthy way. I am currently on the voice faculty at MusA Academy and also maintain a private voice studio with students ranging in age from 6 - 73! I also work closely with professional actors who use their voice on a daily basis.
My musical teaching experience can be traced back to my early years in college where I started my own music studio based out of a church. From there, I moved on to a professional school where I was able to work with mainly children and teenagers. As I gained more teaching and academic experience, I began to branch out and build my own private studio out of my home. Aside from teaching music, I am also an Elementary school computer and technology teacher. This line of work allows me to reinforce my teaching skills as I have to be able to teach and explain to my students very dense and complex terms. Music is very similar to computers in that they both must be learned in small increments or steps in order to see the bigger picture. During my graduate studies, I had the opportunity to teach young adults and adults alike. This experience allowed me to widen and increase the breadth of my studio and reach out to all age groups. Music is ageless and as such it can be learned by any person of any age, young or old.
I'm a dedicated and passionate instructor who loves sharing the joy of music with students. I graduated, magna cum laude, from Luther College with a BA in Music. During my time at Luther I studied music education, vocal performance, piano, and Celtic harp. I perform and teach throughout the Los Angeles area.
I have learned piano at the age of six and voice as well. Studied at professional music school at the age of eleven.I graduated with honors and holds a Bachelor of Music degree in Voice Performance and Piano from State Music University. I have a few openings for new voice and/or piano students. Voice/ whether you are looking to sing opera, musical theater, musicianship(theory,rhythm dictation...) or just want to improve your voice, I can provide you with the skills necessary to sing healthfully, correctly, and beautifully. I am educated in vocal pedagogy and teach the Richard Miller method of vocal health. I teach all ages and have experience teaching children of any age. I do encorage my voice and piano students Only if they express interest. What does happen often is that as a student absorbs the approach, it affects their life to some extent they naturally start slowing down and appreciating details in their lives too; they relax and become more aware of what’s around them because their minds have been trained somewhat through practicing music that way. Then they may or may not gravitate toward learning to meditate. But I never push anyone in that direction. If they do express interest in meditation during their piano lessons, the focus is on how meditation can be helpful to them in practice and performance.
Every single student learns differently and it's very important to adapt yourself to the specific student you're teaching. Personally, I'm a very logical person when it comes to singing, so being very specific and biological works with me the best. I have, however, noticed that many students learn better with imagery and visuals, where they're able to paint pictures in their heads of what the sound of their voice is supposed to be like and it clicks better with their brains. I believe it's good to start with the fundamentals of breathing and encouraging individuality. I also like to first learn about the student I'm teaching, their singing goals, their inspirations and their own special qualities, to further develop what's already there and to also awaken the many parts of their voices that are still undiscovered.

Our adult voice students actively pursue and are successful in auditions for major talent competitions such as the X-Factor, The Voice, and American Idol!
Children who want to take voice lessons should wait until they're at least 11 or 12 years old. At that time, their voice is maturing, and they are emotionally ready to practice regularly and apply themselves. Starting voice lessons before puberty could cause vocal cord damage and strain. That damage potentially jeopardizes future vocal performances. By waiting a few years, children protect their voice. Then they can start lessons and prepare to audition for local, regional, and national competitions or performances in their teen and adult years.
For vocalists of all abilities, it is important to keep the voice healthy. Before singing, whether it be a live performance, a lesson, or practice, vocalists should be sure to do a good warm up, which can last anywhere from 15 minutes to 45 minutes depending on the singer or type of singing about to be performed. All singers should make sure they consume plenty of water throughout the day in order to keep the voice hydrated. A dry throat, along with things such as allergies, coughing, alcohol, and tobacco, can irritate the vocal folds and hinder performance levels.
Musika offers personalized and customized one-on-one voice lessons in your home. The convenience of at home lessons saves you time.

Voice lessons focus on the development of tone, range and volume through the use of breathing techniques and vocal exercises. Students will learn how to read music and also learn to emotionally interpret lyrics and melodies during their performance. Vocal method books and lesson materials can be purchased from a local music store. You can study a variety of vocal styles in your lessons ranging from classical and opera to jazz and pop.

She is amazing! My daughter, Isabella (7 yrs) is totally engaged in the lesson. Lilly's definitely has a gift with teaching young children!!! A great talent of hers is making the content interesting, current to today's music and most of all fun! She has a knack for taking the material and translating it in a way that is relatable to Isabella. My daughter really enjoys her lesson's and has moved along rather quickly with the material. Thanks Lilly!

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!

This is the 1st time I've ever taken lessons, and Robert has been a pleasure to work with. I've made quick progress and have enjoyed the process. I'm always listening for those tips that you can't find in a book. I can count on Robert to be strict on the fundamentals and am clear it will make a difference in the long run.

Being I'm a woman, I was a little apprehensive having a male teacher (he knew this), however, after my trial lesson I realized he knows what he's doing and I had nothing to worry about!! He is very knowledgable on the piano and vocal techniques. He has a big vocal range so he is able to hit the high notes to be able to show me how I need to sing it. He is also phenomenal on the piano. I would highly recommend him for vocal and piano. Also, I don't know how to sight read music and he is teaching how to. I've been taking lessons with him for a month (my trial lesson was on 1/11) and I have already seen a huge improvement. I am an intermediate level singer looking to improve my vocal technique, breathing and improve my confidence in my singing abilities, Alex is definitely helping me do that.

Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!

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.
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.
