I started piano when I was five and teaching for my teacher when I was only 10 years old. Even though I was only a child then, I was very patient with the younger students and provided them with lots of encouragement. With the formal study of pedagogy, over 10 years of experience backed up by scientific research, I have taught piano, voice, theory, ear training, arranging and composition to students from a wide variety of backgrounds. My students range from school students, to graduate students, professionals and college professors. Some went onto major in music, while others pursue it as their passion.
My teaching experience dates back to my highschool days. I began teaching volunteer at the age of 16 in the girl's orphanage. I taught private guitar and vocal lessons. I started teaching professionally during my second year of college at the age 19. I worked as a part-time vocal coach for actors in a professional drama theater. At the same time I was teaching vocal and music theory in the teenager's theater studio. So, I have had teaching experience with students from 12 to 55 years old. I also had many private vocal students, who are successfully continuing to pursue their musical careers/education. After my graduation I moved to London and worked as a music teacher with K-5 grade students. I gained a lot of knowledge about little kids and and the best ways of teaching them. In 2012 I moved to the United States and started working as a vocal teacher at the Lithuanian Boston School, and I am still teaching there. My students are from 3 to 18 years old. I also teach private students online. I love working with different types of students with different musical background and passions and I am happy to see how big of the impact music brings to their lives.
Helping a singer build solid vocal technique is an organic process that unfolds as each singer presents his vocal strenghths, weaknesses, and learning styles. Everything I ask a student to do is based on the anatomy and psysiology of their vocal instrument. It is my goal to help singers understand and gain control over the many working parts that are involved in the singing process. I am a hands on, creative teacher who will do whatever it takes to help students unlock their true vocal potential. I use mirrors, manipulatives, live recordings of lessons, anotomical videos, movement, laryngeal massage and manipulation, etc. to assist my singers in finding vocal freedom.
I believe it is important to help students gain a multidimensional understanding of voice as a communication tool, a sacred instrument, and a healing arts science, etc. My work has evolved into a student-centered practice mixed with the ability to maintain a rigid curriculum structure and/or embrace the freedom of an open approach to musical exploration. My method is eclectic, and ranges from the use of popular voice instruction standards, to creating customized curriculum designed to support each student’s individual learning goals and objectives. My number one focus is on creating a safe and comfortable atmosphere where each student is provided with opportunities to develop new skills and strengths in a wide range of areas. I always enjoy the adventurous journey of working with every student (or group) that contacts me, whether it is for voice instruction, artist coaching, short-term audition preparation, long-term vocal training, or for special guidance with voice acting, accents and pronunciation, or poetry, spoken word and HipHop, etc.
I began teaching when I was a freshman in High School and I continued with a full-time load of students throughout all four years because of how much I loved it! Eventually adding some beginner adult students into my rotation of kids as well! I taught a few college level students throughout my college years whenever I could and took on summer students during my breaks! Now that I am done with college I am very excited to begin teaching students of all ages again and sharing my love and appreciation of music with them.

The best way to maintain vocal health is to learn how to sing using the correct techniques. Some advanced techniques, such as extending vocal range or learning to sing with distortion, should not be practiced without the guidance of a qualified teacher, as they can be dangerous if performed incorrectly. When learning such techniques, untrained singers may shout or push their voices which causes strain, constriction, and ultimately fatigue or damage to the vocal folds. To best preserve the voice, singers should learn the correct techniques, warm up, drink plenty of water, and limit their intake of vocal irritants such as smoking, alcohol, and sugary goods.
There are numerous reasons why adults may wish to start taking singing lessons. Singing is a highly enjoyable, fun, and creative way to express yourself musically. Many students take lessons simply to improve their singing for fun or to take up a new hobby. Students who have specific goals in mind can also have lessons to achieve those aims. Often singers want to improve a particular aspect of their singing such as increasing their vocal range or learning to sing with vibrato or greater agility (runs, fills, etc.) Singers who have a certain style of singing in mind can also learn the techniques behind a wide range of genres.
Most kids don't like waiting for anything, but they should wait until after puberty to take voice lessons. Their vocal cords aren't mature enough for voice training until puberty hits. We recommend kids wait until they are 11 or 12 years old to start voice lessons. By waiting, the risks of vocal strain and damage are reduced. Your child's voice will be physically prepared to handle the training exercises and professional instruction the experienced instructors in our network can provide at that time. Your kids may not want to wait until they reach puberty, but they will benefit from delaying voice lessons until their vocal cords mature.
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!
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.

Dan gave private clarinet lessons to my daughter, Annie, for two years. During that time, she excelled as a member of the middle school band, and maintained first-chair. Dan is an excellent teacher, and Annie looked forward to having one-on-one time with him. In addition to practicing pieces with her, he helped her with scales and greatly improved her tone quality.
Review by Emily
Steve gets you started right away with songs but also goes into music theory and reading music which adds to understanding and appreciation of the music. He is very approachable and you can tell that he absolutely loves music and teaching. It is hard not to be excited about the process of learning with Steve. If you are considering lessons I highly recommend Steve for any level of student.

"My daughter is 10 years old and has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Dale J. for almost 4 years now. She is progressing nicely. His kind and gentle way make for a very positive learning experience. Mr. Dale J. is encouraging without being harsh or belittling. He is patient and the ideal instructor for my daughter."

Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.

“Lynn is my music hero! She can listen to any song and write down the chords. She will adjust to make it easier or harder whatever your abilities. I have a busy schedule and often don't have time to practice between lessons and she is cool with that. She also will adjust lesson times when she is able which fits my hectic schedule. I'm glad my first guitar teacher "fired" me ....that allowed me to meet Lynn.” - Carol A., M.D., Aug 2015

Great teacher for sure.

Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.

I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

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.
