Our music lesson students will have the opportunity to take lessons from the comfort of their own home or in one of the teachers studios. Careful attention is placed on each student to ensure a custom lesson plan. Our music teachers understand that every student has different needs and abilities and therefore the lessons will be planned with that knowledge in mind.
lessons are available in the following areas:
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Ukulele
Teaching Methods: For beginning students on instruments, I begin with a method book, usually Hal Leonard Essential Elements for Guitar and Ukulele, and Piano Discoveries for young beginning pianists, and Piano Adventures for older beginning pianists. From there, I follow my students' interests. For voice, we begin with breathing techniques and vocalizing, and then follow the student's interests from there.
Teaching Styles: It's important to me first that my students enjoy their lessons. This means learning at their own pace, offering poisitive feedback, and using music they prefer. With this combination, they usually find music lessons fun and educational!
Instruments: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Clarinet, Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar
I began working for a music store in 2011 and became very familiar with a plethora of instruments and how to play, repair, and care for them. I began teaching my own students and going to their houses to teach piano, guitar, and voice. I began my study in music at a young age when I got inducted into Middle School of the Arts for Voice. Throughout my high school career, I toured and played with the Edison High School A Capella Choir and got into Regions II Women's Choir in 2010. When I graduated in 2011, I went straight into Music Education and completed an associates degree at Middlesex County College. I then transferred to Kean University in 2013 where I am in the process of completing a Bachelor's degree in Music Education. I am apart of the Concert Choir, Chorale, and Woman's Choir at Kean University and travel with them to perform around the country. After I graduate in 2017, I am planning to teach in a school and get my masters so that I can teach in a university.
Instruments: Piano, Voice, Violin, Viola
My teaching style comes from a combination of my own extensive training (both in pedagogy and performance), my experiences as a performer, experiences with community involvement, and what I have learned over the years in various teaching capacities from other fellow teachers and parenthood (I co-teach violin to my daugher). Patience, dedication, constancy and love of music are essential for a successful partnership between a student and myself. For younger students, I try to establish good dynamics not only with the child but also with the parent. The parental involvement at home is essential for succesful, loving musical development- no matter how "talented" the parent may or may not be. Frome early on, I encourage the student to love and respect what is being learned, while at the same time encouraging him/her to develop critical thinking- and listening.
As a musical theatre performer, voice teacher and coach, I have learned the singer’s paramount need is to maintain vocal health and consistency of performance. This is achieved by laying a foundation of solid vocal training, focusing on the healthy functional use of the voice with emphasis on the following aspects to develop a secure singing technique: · Determination of correct voice category and range · Proper breath support and natural resonance · Alignment of body and larynx · Relaxation of the jaw, tongue and pharynx · Correct diction and articulation · Ear training exercises · Repertoire selection appropriate to age and voice type · Interpretation-integrating text and musical expression
My teaching experience began with giving masterclasses to theater tour groups coming to NYC. I fell in love with teaching! I find it very rewarding sharing my experinces with the students and helping them achieve their goals, so I started my own private vocal studio so I could work with students on a one to one basis. I have also continued to give masterclasses and workshops for such companies as NY OffStage, Broadway Classroom, Camp Broadway and Jeff Alexander productions. I have also been a guest speaker at Brigham Young University, The Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, Philadelphia School of the Arts and Boston Conservatory. In addition to my own vocal studio, I began a program called Broadway Masterclass that brings classes and workshops to students all over the country. Not everyone can come to NYC to study, so we bring the teachers and training to you. For more information go to www.broadwaymasterclass.com

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
