*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to receive a firm foundation in music & guitar while becoming a better musician every day. It is vital for students to have lessons that specialize in not only guitar but also music theory. My primary goals are to make each student a great guitarist and also a well-rounded musician. I firmly believe that any student at any age can become a successful guitarist when engaged in instruction that is appropriate and motivating.

Typically a lesson begins with a quick warm up to center your focus on guitar, then we move into scales and technique, followed by working on previous repertoire and picking new repertoire. and then concluding with sight-reading.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room with seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I ask my students to purchase any instruments or method books.

Hillary T. Elma, NY

About Me

Hi, my name is Hillary and I am a singer, performer, and experienced voice teacher. I have over nine years of private and group voice teaching experience with students from ages 5-65, and over ten years of professional performing experience in the USA and internationally. I absolutely love teaching voice, and helping each student realize and develop their singing potential, while having fun along the way. I specialize in all types of singing repertoire and styles, and tailor lessons to each student's individual needs.

I graduated in 2014 with my Artist's Diploma in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy from the University of Miami, and previously graduated with my Master's of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Miami in May of 2013, where I was also a Graduate Teaching Assistant. I received my Bachelor's of Music in Vocal Performance from Houghton College in Spring of 2011. I currently am also a church musician and soloist, and sing and gig professionally in the Miami area as well as in NYC. Most recently, I have begun working and singing in the Buffalo area as well, and have begun teaching voice lessons for a studio downtown. I am also a section leader and soprano soloist at a church downtown Buffalo as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fun-loving and passionate teacher and my love for music and singing is engaging. I have extensive knowledge of repertoire and styles for all ages, and aim to create an inspiring lesson environment for my students to feel comfortable to learn and grow in our music together. Depending on the level and experience of the student, I always focus on the basics including breathing and posture. We then pick fun and varied music to sing that is age-appropriate, yet fun, and we will most likely be working on a few songs at once.

The first lesson with you, I will check in to see where you are already at in your vocal studies, and we will discuss your goals with singing, and what you are interested in singing. This helps me tailor the lessons to your needs and develop a direction of where we want to go. I will also ask you to sing a small part of a song you love and are comfortable with. This helps me develop a teaching plan to suit your voice and your needs. I want my students to feel comfortable in their lessons, in an honest and uplifting atmosphere.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The in-studio lessons are taught in a room with a piano, laptop for recording, music stand, seating, and a mirror. No pets. Parking is open and free.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They must have a piano or keyboard in the home, and preferably a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
Integrated approach to vocal teaching and Pedagogy... I believe in classical technique with varied voice repertoire and style- Classical, contemporary, pop, theater, jazz, etc.
