She is passionate about teaching the healthiest technique to give singers the stamina to not only sing for hours but sing for life as well. My technique builds voices to last throughout the demands of a professional career.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe strongly in creating a fun and creative atmosphere. A lot of troubles singers seem to have stem from being nervous to sing in front of others. Singing should be an enjoyable experience and that's what I try to create at my studio. I believe strongly in creating a good foundation on which to build on so you can sing any style of music, but also think when students can sing songs they really enjoy singing it helps the learning process. After 3 Months you will have learned:

Eliminate vocal fatigue and tension
Improve vocal range, tone and flexibility
Develop diaphragmatic breath control
Improve strength and endurance
Bridge the gaps between chest & head/falsetto
Clear up nasality, breathiness or tone imbalances
Learn pop “sound” and style (all contemporary styles)
Improve diction and phrasing (“sing like you speak”)
Change from Musical Theatre or “legit” singing to Pop, Rock, R & B genres
Find your own signature sound and style
Improve vocal performance

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room with microphones, keyboard and a guitar. I also have some instructional posters demonstrating
how the voice works.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my own keyboard. A room with a mirror and where they feel comfortable is key.

*** Specialties ***
Contemporary/ Pop/ Rock/ Musical Theatre
Teaching the correct and healthy way to belt.

Tara G. Austin, TX

Subjects Taught

Acting, Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

I graduated from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA! I received a BFA in Musical Theatre. What a change that was to go from Texas to Philly! I auditioned for many different schools, and know what it takes to get there. I then moved to New York City 2 days after graduating, on my 22nd birthday! I had 13 wonderful, and also challenging, years in NYC. Lots and lots of auditions, of every kind! Broadway, Off-Broadway, TV, Soaps, Film, Commercials, Concerts, Readings, Showcases, etc. I have sung for ABBA (Mama Mia), Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), Hal Prince (Gypsy). I was also up for leads in Mama Mia, Wicked, Rent, Hairspray. So, I definitely have a lot of versatility, and knowledge of what they're looking for! I did a Eugene O'Neil play called "Ah Wilderness" at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. We opened there, and then toured it all over the Midwest for 6 months. I did appear on NBC's Law & Order as a featured role, with the late Jerry Orbach. Lot's of experience, lot's of knowledge, and I'm excited to share it with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to teach in a laid back manner. That's not to say that I don't expect you to work too though! I don't necessarily teach one specific method. I feel like if you can get ALL the information, and different methods, then you can choose what best works for your voice , or your piano playing. I want my students to feel comfortable and safe to explore all different facets of their talent. After all, the little imperfections are what make us all unique!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a keyboard, among many other instruments! My husband uses those, I use the piano. There's definitely a comfortable living room, for the parents or caregivers to sit and wait.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If I go to the students house, they must have a piano, or keyboard. I can bring books of music.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach any style of singing! I majored in Musical Theater, but I sing everything. I played piano for 10 years. I have many many years of music theory lessons! I had surgery on my vocal chords, back in 1995, and had 4 years of speech and vocal therapy, so I have lots of experience with that as well. I don't use a specific method with my acting. It depends on what they would want to work on! I have many books of music, and music theory, and piano learning. In terms of learning piano, I would start with scales, and chords, and learning the right hand, then the left.

About Me

Rodrigo is a young, enthusiastic musician, singer, dancer and actor who has been working professionally since the age of 14. Originally from Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, Rodrigo is now based out of the “Live Music Capitol of the World!” - Austin Texas.

Rodrigo has enjoyed a thoroughly successful career in the arts and has played with such performers as Bukka Allen, Kristen Chenoweth, Kelli O'Hara, Destan Owens, Jacqui Marland, and bands such as "Woolgather" and “Steam Train Murphy". He also has shared the stage with the likes of several Country music sensations such as Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, Vince Gil, and Carrie Underwood at the Oklahoma City Centennial Concert at the Ford Center. He also recorded with Puerto Rican Reggae sensation "Cultura Profetica" and had played at Lincoln Center in New York City by the age of 20.

"One of my greatest times on stage was getting to sing for Lance Armstrong, President Bill Clinton and hundreds of other celebrities and Lance Armstrong's benefit concert. It was invigorating to use music to make a difference in something so profoundly important as finding a cure for cancer... Anything is possible".

Rodrigo trained in music in high school then went on to pursue a BM in Guitar Performance and Vocal Performance/Musical Theatre with minors in Piano Performance and Dance Performance from the prestigious Wanda L. Bass School of Music, Pitree School for the Fine Arts, and Ann Lacy School of Dance, known together as "The Juliard of the South"- Oklahoma City University. He has also trained with head vocal professor from Southwestern University Dr. Oliver Worthington.
.
Since moving back to Austin, Rodrigo has since signed with Central Texas and Louisiana Agency: Acclaim Talent, where he has enjoyed a full acting career and is considered one of their “Top Bookers” and regularly continues practicing the art of Method Acting, specifically Meisner Technique (The School of Acting most accredited with Film) boasting such actors as Streep, William Hurt, and Dustin Hoffman.

All of these things along with a very diverse musical upbringing have molded Rodrigo into a well-trained, professional, and motivated teacher. Being self taught primarily until getting his first guitar lesson in College, Rodrigo strives to, above all else, to use his power as a teacher to motivate, captivate, and do everything he can to encourage the growth of a student’s love and passion for music instead of killing it like the horror stories which are all too common. "The way I see it, people who are doing what they love are the happiest and successful people. If you love music and/or acting, and your relationship with it continues to grow and develop then you will find yourself making more progress, faster, and reaching limits you never thought possible".

On practicing: "Practice stinks, if you are happy and love what you're doing, then it's not practice... It's Playing! And you will see the greatest and most thorough improvement when you find yourself, say, running scales, with a smile on your face instead of a headache".

Rodrigo possesses several qualities that set him apart as a teacher. Regardless if the student is a 5 year old beginner, Seasoned Pro, or an Adult hobbyist who's always wanted to write a song, or learn to play the guitar, or anyone in between, Rodrigo is 150% committed to a student and their individual goals. With lessons completely personalized for each student, everyone gets what they want and need out of their specific musical journey.
If a student is on the road to pursue a career in music, not only can Rodrigo teach the subjects of Voice, Guitar, Piano, and Acting and the genres between them, but he can also offer insight and education on the Music Business, how it works, and even connect a gifted student ready for the next level to the right people! He knows the ins and outs of the industry, and can help professional hopefuls get ahead with all aspects of music and not just learning the craft.
Another quality that Rodrigo prides himself on is a comfortable, laid back but thorough and professional atmosphere. He believes that if a student is enjoying the musical experience, instead of feeling under immense stress and pressure to get to the next checkpoint, the student will find themselves progressing much faster than they ever thought possible!

Rodrigo provides the highest levels of technique, theory, and aural training regardless of preferred genre and offers a very pragmatic way of absorbing and retaining the knowledge and skills learned in lesson. "Music isn't rocket science, it's harder, but that doesn't mean it HAS to feel that way. I was self taught, and even when I got to college some professors went out of their way to complicate things, however due to the tricks I learned when having to attempt teaching myself, and finding my own ways of learning, I've found techniques and ideas that can help make learning fun, painless and feel almost easy!"

Rodrigo employs the best of both worlds in his practice. He provides top notch education, a professional setting, and challenges students to exceed expectation and fulfill potential but does so by inspiring, encouraging, and motivating students to 'Want to, and enjoy doing so' not making them feel they 'have to' or making lessons stressful and full of strict pressure. He has found that the student, more than the teacher, is in charge of their fate and progress; the greatest quality he can integrate as a teacher is getting the student excited to learn and excel while coming to realize the love and potential they have within themselves.

"What I can do for you, is enrich your love for music and acting while training and preparing you to succeed with whatever dreams and goals you would like to achieve and possibly, help you discover dreams and goals you never knew you had!"

*** Lesson Details ***
Rodrigo is a cool and laid back teacher, but is professional and very thorough. Strictness, in his belief- "forces" progress that can have very detrimental effects on students when they are made to feel they didn't make the mark, or failed, or when they feel they had to kill themselves to do so.
His students enjoy getting better at what feels like 1000 miles per hour with their passion and love for it traveling faster and fueling their progress.
In 3-6 months, depending on goals and skill levels, one can do and achieve what would seem infinitely improved. Beginners won't see themselves or be seen as beginners anymore. They will read music, they will understand the fundamentals of Music Theory and be able to use that to exponentiate their progress. Intermediate students will find themselves doing things on their instrument they never thought possible, and professionals will get that last layer of polish and fine tuning that keeps them sharp and ready and provides that birds eye view on where their career is heading.

Ultimately, the student is in charge of how much progress they make and at what pace. 3-6 months can carry with it what feels like years and years of experience and knowledge, or it can also feel like time wasted. Rodrigo believes this is where he can be of great service. Ensuring that the student is constantly passionate about challenging themselves in a positive way to succeed.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Korg full size keyboard with surround sound, a full library of music and reference material, and an electric guitar rig and classical guitar, musicians chairs, plenty of seating for parents, very large room

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have his/her own equipment If I am traveling to their home. Or have a space that has equipment in it. My transportation while reliable limits what I can carry with me.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in all major styles of guitar, from chicken pick'n to classical, and understand the technique involved for different genres and styles.

I teach and specialize in Stanislovski, Meisner, and Alexander acting schools concentrating more on film acting than stage and shakespearian acting.

I specialize in most ballroom forms of dance, hip hop, breakdance and tap, specifically rhythm tap, Jazz, and less on ballet and modern/lyrical

I also can teach all kinds of singing styles, my philosophy is good technique in conjunction with passion.

With piano, I teach all styles, how to read music, and mostly how to create your own music because so many pianists can play whatever is put in front of them but have trouble getting creative on their instrument, more so than most other instruments

Yoga for the Voice – Singing Lessons in Austin

By Gfire M. - Austin Voice Teacher

I have been singing since age 3 and taking voice lessons since age 14, beginning with classical songs, musical theater, and opera before getting into rock, blues, folk, country, R&B and anything else I felt like trying! One thing that always bugged me about voice lessons was that I was never told exactly where all of my singing sounds come from. Of course we discussed chest voice, middle voice and head voice, but I never really understood what to do with my throat to make these sounds happen.

Fortunately, very early in my professional singing career, I happened upon a book in the library called “Science and Singing.” It was my first real “Ah-Ha” moment – the author explained that the real source of singing tone comes from air vibrating ...
