David A. Cincinnati, OH

Subjects Taught

Drum, Music Performance, Percussion

About Me

I am a student at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music. I am studying Music Performance: Jazz Studies (drum set). I have been playing drums my whole life and I have been playing professionally since age 16.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am interested in making an individualized approach for each student, depending on the level of your ability. For beginner students we will be learning the essentials of reading music and learning about the drums. For more experienced students we will work on independence, reading, and session style playing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach lessons out of the Jazz Studies department at CCM. I have a room with 2 drum sets and sound equipment. For easy access to the lesson, park in the CCM Garage and go to level P1. Enter through the doors that say Mary Emery Hall and turn right. Room 1421

*** Specialties ***
Drumset - All Styles

Jonathan C. Cincinnati, OH

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Choir, Classical Voice, Gospel Singing, Jazz Voice, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Singing, Vocal Training

About Me

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will provide sheet music for beginners (first year). After that I would expect the student to seek out and purchase their own repertoire (with guidance from me). They must have a piano in their home - if not, we can work out another location to meet.

*** Specialties ***
Singing is singing, regardless of genre - it is the different application of the same technique that results in a different sound. Singing is universal. What an opera singer vs. a music theater singer work on will be very similar over the course of study. We learn much from the study of repertoire we are not as familiar with. All students will benefit from a variety of classical and popular pieces.

How do we achieve this? Together we will aim for an evenness of vowel production, striving for consistency from one note to the next. Within the context of repertoire, we are encouraged to use the text and meaning of the words to our advantage, and we aim to bring out our inner expressiveness through self discovery.

We use a variety of methods to achieve this, including:
- relevant vocalises and excercises
- picking repertoire that realizes both artistic and technical goals
- encouraging active listening to a variety of styles

Melissa H. Cincinnati, OH

About Me

I received my Bachelor of Music (Voice) and Master of Music (Voice) degrees at the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music in 2009 and 2011. I have been singing professionally in Cincinnati since 2005. Among my courses at CCM were Music Theory and Aural Skills. English and grammar have always been a passion of mine. Having studied German, French, and Italian, I have had extensive exposure to translation, sentence structure, and grammar. I have taken piano and voice lessons for 10+ years.

A few companies I have had engagements with outside of Cincinnati are the New York City Opera, Opera Company of Philadelphia, Gotham Chamber Opera, and Salisbury Symphony Orchestra. In Cincinnati, I have worked with the Cincinnati Opera, Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, Vocal Arts Ensemble, Collegium Cincinnati, Nanoworks Opera, and many others.

I have been teaching voice lessons since January of 2012 and have taught beginning piano as well. I do not accept voice students under the age of 10.

I look forward to working with you!
