About Me

I graduated from Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA with a BA in Music Education, voice principal. During my years in public schools I taught a variety of age ranges and subjects including kindergarten general music, beginning band, high school chorus, and remedial middle school English and language arts. I have professional Yoga training and enjoy incorporating aspects of that when tutoring adult, middle school, high school, and elementary students. I also uses Yoga, brain respiration and other healing techniques in my lessons as needed.

I was a member of The William Baker Festival Singers and Summer Singers since 2003 before becoming Media Relation Coordinator in 2006 and Assistant to the Music Director in 2008 and left the group in July of 2009 to pursue other musical ventures.

Every student has a potential for greatness no matter what their strengths and weaknesses are. No matter your age or ability level I will help you set your goals and reach them. All students should want to learn. I expect my students to be prepared and have an open mind. Learning to sing is a process. I focus on building technique and a strong musical foundation and customize my lessons for every student and individual needs. I use breathing techniques and exercises that are challenging and work toward quick and accurate results. I implement a variety of exercises to improve pitch, intonation, placement, strength, and endurance. My main goal in teaching is to encourage each student to get to know their vocal strengths and weaknesses while using all their skills to their advantage producing their best sound consistently.

About Me

Kadina W.:

A Singer. A Songwriter. A Teacher. An Inspiration.

Founder of Sangstar Productions and co-owner of The Premier Vocal Coaches & Piano Stars Kids, Kadina Webb understands the concept of hard work all too well. From the tender age of 6, Kadina aspired to be a singer. With the vision of turning the world into her stage, she entered countless talent shows, resulting in numerous rewards including 2nd place at the Miami-Dade County Parks and Recreation Youth Talent Show. With every second, her love of music grew transforming from a mere dream to a life mission. At the age of 11 she tested the waters of her musical talents and penned her first song leading her into new horizons of creativity.

As the musician and artist within her matured the numbers of doors that would open increased. Throughout her Teenage years Kadina was able to contribute her strong sultry vocals to the High School All Women Choir, Disney World International Choir in Orlando, FL, performing at private parties and events, as well as the All-State Choir and Solo Competitions in Florida. With all of this experience under her belt, it was time to test the waters of new opportunities. Although she had accomplished so much, she came to realize that College would not be an easy obstacle to overcome. As she traveled through the land of knowledge she tapped into new musical talents by learning the guitar, violin, upright bass, saxophone, and the marimba. While acquiring new skills and talents, she became focused on enhancing her existing gifts including piano and voice. Her determination and dedication became prevalent throughout the musical department at her university as she gradually acquired the title as the most prolific vocalist in the department. Continuing in the theme of excellence, Kadina went on to compose sheet music, study vocal pedagogy; perform with numerous jazz ensembles R&B/Soul band, Perform in operas, solos with orchestras and musical stage plays and co-hosting on local radio station. Having a reputation for being influential in music she gained the opportunity to vocal train, manage, write and produce for local artist around the city.

With all of these milestones accumulated on her journey, Kadina knew that it was the perfect time to share her knowledge and experiences with others. Living by the theme, “We are blessed to bless others,” Kadina began blessing aspiring stars and musicians with her talents through her first lesson as an instructor in 2002. With over 10 years of experience in training and coaching singers, musicians and songwriters, Kadina Webb is utilizing all of her knowledge, skills and experience to assist singers and musicians in reaching their musical goals. With every lesson, every student, every triumph, and every milestone Kadina is changing the world by selflessly sharing her gifts with others. Driven by her motto, “Your goals are my goals”, Kadina is sure to be the key factor in the fruition of aspiring stars’ dreams. As she walks further on her road of purpose, it is evident that wherever it leads, it will be an inspiration for all.

Subjects Taught

About Me

With a performance degree from the University of Georgia, teaching certification from Georgia State and over 25 years of professional teaching experience, I am able to offer my students a diverse range of instructional resources.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons include a warmup, music theory work, vocal or instrumental technique and then a vast selection of song repertoire to support new ideas in both technique and theory. Students are directed to watch or listen to examples of master performances in their field of studies. Clear weekly goals are made between lessons and I am always encouraging! Whatever life throws at you during the week doesn't have to stop your studies cold- we will come up with a plan that fits your lifestyle.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a small Protools setup with microphones and a Kurzwell keyboard. I like to be able to go online for some resources.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I regularly use the internet in lessons as well as standard published educational texts.

*** Specialties ***
I have been told that I am especially good at helping people make the jump from playing by rote to reading from the page. In vocal instruction, I am familiar with three schools of technique: the psycho-imagery school, the "anatomical" school, and the Italian "open throat" approach. My background in acting also contributes basic vocal projection techniques to vocal training. I am comfortable with all genres of music, including pop, rock, soul, R&B, gospel, jazz and opera. In instrumental studies, I am a woodwind doubler, reading fluently and transposing on-the-spot . As a jazz and gospel artist I improvise primarily on the flute and saxophone. My piano skills are equivalent to a second-year college piano major. I can improvise accompaniments as well as read piano scores. In addition to being a certified teacher in Georgia, I attained national certification through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2004.

Mary Frances K. Norcross, GA

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Speaking Voice

About Me

Biography - Mary Frances K. has been teaching voice since 1991. She works with youth and adults, beginner and advanced.

Her goal is to help singers gain fulfillment and joy while improving their art.

Voice students of hers have won university voice scholarships and have been accepted into Allstate Chorus for High School in Georgia and other voice programs at the college level. She has taught in her home, and for Music Life Studio.

She also teaches piano. She has taught piano for about 8 years. She studied piano privately for 10 years and had further study at Indiana University. She accompanies herself in her own vocal study and rehearsals for synagogue choir practice. She believes music should be fun and rewarding.

Students wishing to have any combination of piano, music theory and/or vocal development can receive a program of study that meets their individual needs.

Mary Frances has performed with the Southeastern Savoyards Light Opera Company, the Atlanta Opera Chorus and Studio, the Atlanta Symphony Chorus, Marietta Theater in the Square, and Neighborhood Playhouse. She has sung title roles in Patience, Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel. Other roles include Josephine in HMS Pinafore, the Princess in The Student Prince, and Connie in The 1940'™s Radio Hour.

She has performed many roles with Capitol City Opera Company (CCOC) including Annina in The Saint of Bleecker Street, Bastienne in Mozart's Bastien and Bastienne, Nora in Vaughan Williams™ Rider™s to the Sea, and Gilda in Milton Granger™s Talk Opera. She sang for many years in CCOC'™s school outreach program. She has sung many concerts for CCOC as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
Teaching Style and Curriculum - My teaching style is relaxed yet progressive. I use positive reinforcement to encourage progress with adults and children. Students are allowed to progress at their own pace which varies with age, coordination, processing speed and previous exposure to musical education.

I prefer the Alfred'™s Basic Piano Library series for my piano students. I find that my students learn more music theory and music reading with this series. If the student has started lessons in a different series, I can work with that as well. I have a large music library that provides a wide selection of music in addition to the Alfred books. I expect most beginning students to learn basic music reading and theory in 3 to 6 months. They should also to be able to play simple tunes in that time. I am an active professional singer, so I have a large library of vocal material at my disposal.

I begin my voice lessons with breathing techniques and vocal placement using widely accepted exercises coming from a large body of sources such as:
Vaccai, professional level vocal teachers, coaches and directors that I have worked with and learned from over the last 30 years, and the writings of highly acclaimed authors in the vocal field. I also have a wide selection of art song books, oratorio, musical theatre, and opera. My background is classical and musical theatre,
but I believe all styles of singing need the basic skills of breathing and vocal placement. I strive to keep voices healthy as well as find each student's most beautiful sound. Most students will see progress in breath control, range, projection and diction in 3 to 6 months.

Repertoire is chosen on an individual basis depending both physical and musical ability. Younger students and beginners will be encouraged to not push their voices with material that is too difficult for their individual abilities because singing requires a certain amount of physical endurance. My goal is to find each student's natural sound without strain for whatever style he or she
sings.
