Although every student is different, I typically start with Fundamentals. I firmly believe the key to healthy, full singing lies in the basics. Then we'll begin to work on solo repertoire that is appropriate to the student's ability and age level. With all my students, I think it is important to learn and strive to improve, but also have fun!
I am a fun teacher who loves to see my students progress and fall in love with music! I tailor my lessons to the students specific needs, so we move at a pace that works for the student. Each lesson is structured around the students needs, so that the student remains inspired and excited to learn. I love my students to be happy with their progress and to be able to do what they love, and I accomplish this with constant encouragement, mentoring, and structured and fun instruction. I enjoy watching my students progress and succeed musically and in life.
I attained my M. Ed. in leadership and supervision at Antioch University. There I learned how better apply my teaching methods for more beneficial outcomes. My most recent employment, with Nashville Public Schools (Music City!!!), afforded me the opportunity to teach modern band. Modern band philosophy combines instruments from various ensembles and allows the students the opportunity to explore and integrate the instrument of their interest into that band. Modern Band is basically a rock band that is opened to other instruments and ideas that are most times contradictory to a typical rock band. I am an effective music instructor and each student will gain confidence and insight from my guidance.
To make the learning experience fun and interesting. I first introduce concepts; then connect to well known songs and music that allow you to understand and appreciate the vital concepts and themes being illustrated. Together we set realistic goals, learn from where we may have missed the mark, and celebrate our achievements. This allows me to tailor your lesson so that you may gain the absolute most at of each and everyone.

Learning to sing as a child is fun, rewarding, and vastly beneficial to overall development. Children can develop their ability to accurately recreate pitch, theory knowledge, and singing technique. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills, and familiarity with different musical genres. Learning to sing can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, entering competitions, or performing live. Students are advised to start their lessons no earlier than 12 years of age, as they have yet to reach vocal maturity before that age.
The strength voice requires the good health of your entire body to be at its best. Many voice professionals advise that students drink adequate water, get enough rest, avoid stress, and exercise regularly. Singers are advised to not talk or scream at at high volumes or for long periods of time on the days of performances. Additionally, the overuse of alcohol or antihistamines can dry out your vocal folds and make singing efficiently more difficult.
One-on-one vocal lessons straight from the comfort of your own home are a great way to learn to how to sing. Most of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, where students will work on technique and exercises. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
If you want to sing like a professional, you need adult voice lessons. They can improve your vocal range, perfect your tone and protect your voice. You also learn techniques you can practice every day at home. Instructors in Musika's network are skilled in teaching every musical genre. With their help, you can master R&B, Classical, Country, and other genres and styles. In your home or in a teacher's private studio, learn how to be a better singer as you prepare for national reality singing competitions, local performances, or personal entertainment. Then enjoy singing like a professional thanks to adult voice lessons.
Voice lessons will focus on developing proper breathing and vocal technique to improve your singing. You will learn how to support and project your voice even as you learn to read music. You will also learn how to interpret different styles of music, develop performance techniques, and emotionally interpret song lyrics and phrases. The most important thing you will learn in voice lessons is how to express yourself through singing!

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.

Henry is teaching my daughter how to play piano. Henry is an excellent teacher, we really like and appreciate him. His teaching style works very well for my daughter, she is comfortable which makes learning enjoyable. Henry is very patient and I can see that he is passionate about teaching music. Great teacher for sure.

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.

Danette is a delightful instructor. She always brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to piano lessons with my daughter. She is not only skilled at piano, but she has a wonderful voice quality that she uses to help convey certain techniques and to highlight various points where she intends to draw the students attention.

I've always said, "It's all about the teacher." That skillful, effective teacher who can reach that child and ignite her passion, is truly a gift. Ric does that for my daughter. As a former music teacher myself, the most challenging thing in working with children is how to build their fundamental musical skills while letting them have fun and be expressive. The teacher must create a safe, supportive environment, and Ric does that. Ric immediately focuses on fundamentals of tone and technique, giving my daughter succinct instruction on how to improve, thus she can sense the improvement immediately. Ric seems extremely easy going; even when lighting a fire under her sometimes under-achieving butt, Ric never criticizes, judges or blames. He works with my child, understanding her, helping her problem solve, and even giving her the quick answer sometimes so she can move quickly and stay motivated. Ric balances fundamentals with fun and expressiveness, so my child feels as though she can 'play' and they truly make music in every lesson. I am thankful we found a good match with Ric.

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!
Review by Natalie Kretcher
I really like her. And as an adult student, a good teacher who keeps the pace up but still keeps it reasonable in terms of difficulty is really hard to find. She does a great job of explaining little detail things in terms I (as a musically challenged human) can understand. I'm having a blast! 10/10 would recommend!

My daughter has been taking piano lessons through her school district program for the last two years. She had learned a lot in that class but I noticed that she needed advanced classes at this point. After reviewing several websites I decided to enroll my daughter for the trial at MUSIKA. We got Mrs. Veronica B., and I am more than happy we got her as my daughter's teacher. Mrs. Veronica B. was very professional and very knowledgeable at the trial day. She was able to assess my daughter skill's level, and then she was able to give suggestions about how to improve those skills. My daughter has taken 5 classes with Mrs. Barker, and I can see she enjoys each class and she's improved a lot since day one. I can picture my daughter playing her favorites songs on the piano very soon!!! :-)
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.
