Now introducing the Epic Music Mastery Game! A full fledged competition between yourself and other students where you can earn experience points, level up, win prizes, learn and advance your skills in the process!
Dear aspiring singers (pianists see below): I firmly believe that with the right training, anyone can sing! We all have the instrument built-in after all! Are you tone deaf? I can fix that. Crack on high notes? I can fix that. Nasal? Hoarse? Can't hold long notes? All of these are common vocal problems that can be easily be solved through guidance and practice. Trust me, no one ever regretted taking voice lessons!
For my piano friends: How often do you sit down at a piano and wish you could just place your hands on the piano and magically create beautiful music? Piano is a challenging skill, but certainly not impossible. Learning to play the piano, even if it's never mastered, is such an incredible joy. Learning piano helps you to improve so many other skills as well, such as singing, any other instrument, and even math!
About Me: After completing my Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance at North Park University in Chicago, I moved here to NYC in 2010 to pursue my loves of music, acting, and education. Currently, I work as a Teaching Artist through Wingspan Arts, act in short films, and sing in concerts, operas, and musical theater productions around the city. I have been teaching acting, modeling, voice, and piano to children and adults of all ages for the last seven years. My goal is to professionally fuse my passion for music, theater, and education while continuing to learn, grow, and share the beauty and magic of the arts with others.
In my free time I enjoy movies, Broadway shows, cooking, and exploring all the delicious wonders New York City has to offer! I miss Chicago pizza, but NYC sure knows its way around a cupcake!

Sheena R., recently praised in the New York times as "a light, perky soprano", has appeared in numerous operatic roles and song recitals. A graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, she had the opportunity to work with world-renowned voice pedagogue Richard Miller as an assistant at the Otto B Schoepfle Vocal Arts Center. She completed her Graduate Study at the New England Conservatory, and had the great privilege to study with James McDonald and John Moriarty. She sang the Soprano Solo in Brahms' Requiem under the baton of choral icon Sir David Willcocks, as well as Zerlina in the Boston Opera Collaborative production of Don Giovanni. During her time in Boston she was also fortunate enough to sing for Renee Fleming and perform in the Boston premier of Steve Reich's Daniel Variations as one of four vocal soloists. She lived in New Orleans, where she was affiliated with the Louisiana Academy of the Performing Arts. She maintained a private studio of nearly 60 students, and helped them prepare for recitals, auditions, musicals, and choral performances. Since moving to New York in 2010 she has performed over 12 roles with Light Opera of New York, The Blue Hill Troupe, and Amore Opera, among others.

I started playing drums in my parents' basement when I was 9 years old. It was just me, a stereo, and a bunch of cardboard boxes I made into my first drumset. Every day, I listened to to my favorite songs over and over again to figure out how to play them. To me, there was nothing more awesome in the world than music.
Since then my musical journey has taken me far and wide. I've studied percussion and composition with world class teachers, toured Europe, composed music for commercials, co-written award winning songs, and performed with a variety of artists at such venues as the Hard Rock Cafe, BB King's, World Cafe, 55 Bar, The Living Room, The Bitter End, Shrine, Rockwood Music Hall, and many others. And the one thing that hasn't changed? I'm still totally in awe of it all.
These experiences have helped me to create my own style of teaching that's tailored to each student, whether they want to learn music purely for the enjoyment of it, or take their studies further. Sharing my knowledge and life experience with people is a great feeling. I really enjoy teaching -- In fact, I've learned just as much from teaching my students as they've learned from me.
I continue to perform, teach, and compose original music in New York City with my wife and two pianos.
My Education/Credits: Percussion, Berklee College of Music / Masters in Classical Composition from Aaron Copland School of Music, Queens College.
Greetings! My name is Christina and I am a recent Rutgers University graduate with a double major in both music and economics. I have had over 12 years of private training in piano, with additional experience in violin, orchestra, choir and various performance-related events. Over the years I have studied with numerous pianists and incorporated many different methods and techniques that have greatly influenced my own teaching. I have been teaching music lessons to both children and adults since high school, and am comfortable teaching any age. I do believe that a solid foundation in any instrument begins with music theory, and it is something I incorporate little by little into each lesson; however, it is very important to me that the learning process be enjoyable, and I strive to make each lesson as fun, inspiring, and exciting as possible!

Music is therapeutic to my soul and essential to my everyday existence. Absorbed by it, I dedicate most of my energy toward creating, writing, and playing music. I am here to help you to do the same. I am fortunate and grateful to have worked with many of the world's most amazing and creative performers, artists, composers, and producers. Because of this, I've learned to appreciate a diverse range of musical genres, while showing no bias toward any one musical form. After all, at the end of a piece of music, it's the listerner's personal feeling that will truly reflect their opinion.
Alex started his formal music education in the fourth grade where he first played trumpet in elementary school. After dabbliing with the piano and drums, he finally settled on bass just before his 20th birthday, while attending the University of New Hampshire. In less than two years, he earned a spot on the bass chair for the UNH Orchestra.
After graduating in 2000 from UNH with a B.A. in Economics, he got a job playing bass for a national touring act, CHAD, with former members of teh Jerry Barcia Band. On the tour he opened for such bands as Blues Traveler, G Love and Special Sauce, and SevenMaryThree.
At age 23, Alex applied to the prestigious Berklee College of Music, auditioned, and won a half scholarship from the Berklee World Tour Scholarship. At Berklee he was fortunate to study privately under world-renowned bassists John Lockwood (Joe Henderson, George Garzone), Bruce Gertz (Mike Stern, Jerry Bergonzi), Oscar Stagnaro (Paquito D' Rivera, Chucho Valdez), and Anthony Vitti (Liberace, The Platters). While attending Berklee he did a brief tour through Scotland and Paris including the Dundee Jazz Festival with the Konrad Wiszniewski Quartet. He finished Berklee in December of 2005 with a degree in Contemporary Writing and Production.
Alex currently resides in New York City and is now a member of the popular upcoming alternative rock quartet Man on Earth. In October 2008, Man On Earth released their latest album, "The Time Spent Wondering" which was produced and mixed by 6-Time Grammy winner Ken Lewis (Lenny Kravitz, Beastie Boys, Fall Out Boy, Kayne West). The record features a guest appearance by Dr. Fink (of Prince and the Revolution).
Aside from Man On Earth, Alex plays regular gigs as a first call freelance bassist on the New York City music scene as well for national touring. Other projects include playing with a diverse array of musical acts including the modern jewish Rock group Josh Nelson Project, singer-songwriter Jessica Labus, and jazz vocalist Julie Lavender Quintet to name a few.
