About Me

I enjoy the benefits of private teaching to help students realize their full potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe anyone can learn to play the piano or sing, but you must enjoy what you are doing. Once you learn the basics you will be able to start choosing music that you like.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I use a Roland Digital Piano to teach my lessons. I use programs on the computer to reinforce musical concepts learned.

*** Specialties ***
I like to use a variety of methods to teach depending on my students likes and abilities.

About Me

Hey there!

No matter what stage you are at in your singing exploration, I can help empower you to let your voice be heard and have FUN in the process. :o)

--- What do I bring to the table, you ask? Well....

As an experienced singer songwriter and current front woman of an indie rock band, I bring a lot of real world vocal and performance experience to my students. Having a diverse musical history ranging from pop, r&b, punk, emo, 80's soft rock, to big band, classical, musical theater, and black gospel, I am able to understand and teach students within the style that they feel most passionate about.

I'm a huge believer in directly applying the techniques taught, so our lessons will consist of scales and understanding of the voice, but will always include song application on songs of your choice. I mean, after all, if you don't like the songs you're working on, you will have less motivation to practice and get better!!

--- What is my educational background?

I studied voice for four years at Grand Canyon University, graduating with a B.A. in Creative Arts with a Vocal Emphasis. But to be honest, I gained most of my vocal power and control after graduating by studying with vocal coaches of artists such as Natasha Bedingfield, Justin Bieber, Hayley Williams and Taylor Swift. Because of this personal experience, I incorporate many of the Speech Level Singing techniques, and have taught students from ages 4-62 over the last 10 years.

--- Nervous or struggling with stage fright?

I understand that overwhelming feeling and can help you with this! I battled stage fright for what seemed like forever, so I have a close understanding of students dealing with the frustrations of stage fright. Music is an emotional expression, so I believe we must address the emotional side of being a performer as well as the technical side, if we truly want to have vocal freedom.

--- Looking for performance help?

Yep, I can help with that. I've been performing locally, nationally, and some internationally for many years. I've helped many students come out of their shell on stage!

--- What else am I about?

Along with teaching voice, I'm currently involved in a few musical projects, including my indie rock band Dearspeak. Earlier this year, I finished my second solo album, which can be found online, as well as previous albums. I'm also a mentor and advocate for abuse recovery.

I absolutely love being able to inspire people to sing and give voice to the unique sound that we all have within us. It's a personal passion of mine to help others find their voice and the inner strength to let it be heard!

See you soon!
Ree

About Me

I am a classically trained singer who graduated from Cedarville University with my Bachelor's of Music degree. While I love to sing opera, I also enjoy singing pop, country and other music styles. I currently sing with the Phoenix Opera and continue to study with the Phoenix Opera co-founders.

I have taught people of all ages and backgrounds including children, adults, jazz singers, and a professional country artist. I continue to teach a variety of students with many different goals. Because I have had different voice coaches over the years, I have learned many different teaching styles and techniques that I use to help my own students progress.

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to encourage my students! I believe that recognizing improvement and rewarding it increases the student's desire to progress.

With that in mind, I start every lesson warming up the voice with exercises that teach free and easy singing with proper breath control. The student also learns sight-reading and some music theory. I use the same method when teaching songs, but as the student progresses, they learn to apply the techniques and recognize how to improve the song on their own. As they improve, they will be able to sing more challenging music.

Because every student has their own unique goal, they are expected to purchase music and books accordingly. I prefer my students record their lessons to help facilitate their practice. I strongly encourage the purchase of a recording device if you do not already have one, or at the very least to bring a note-book.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing and opera. I believe that having a good foundation of correct breathing, placement of sound and relaxed singing is important for any music style. When the voice as an instrument is taken care of properly, any style of music is possible. I teach these three things as fundamentals to every student no matter what genre of music they want to sing in. We then work from there to add the stylistic nuances that separate genres.

About Me

Open up to your own unique voice. Play piano with energy and freedom.

"With singing, your body is your instrument. Helping you become all you can be as a performer is my number one goal. Protecting your voice is a close second as we work to strengthen your vocal range and the quality of your sound. As well, piano students will learn techniques that will speed up their comprehension of sight reading and/or improvisation. Teaching gives me an opportunity to energize my students and share with them historically proven techniques - as well as new ways of practicing and performing." - Marty

Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Marty moved to the Phoenix, AZ area eight years ago. Marty has over 20 years of performing and teaching experience. She studied for three years at the School of Music, University of Colorado, Boulder. She has studied in the Masters program in vocal pedagogy and has performed in a variety of venues from blues to opera.

You will find her pedagogy technique to be respectful of the masters that have come before her. She is also open to new techniques from belting (in popular music), to microphone usage skills. As a student, you will be invited to perform in student recitals. You will be joining a team of dedicated, passionate performers who know the pleasure of performing.

As a beginning and intermediate piano instructor, Marty will guide you in the basics of sight reading. If you prefer, your piano classes will consist primarily of improvisation and chord progressions (you will also learn a little bit of sight reading which will help you 'flesh out' the melody). You will gain a solid foundation in music theory as well as an introduction into the vast world of music history. All age ranges are welcome, from the beginning elementary student, to the retiree just now finding the time to pursue their passion to perform.

I have authored a variety of music theory articles to assist you with your progress. We use these in the lessons to speed up your assimilation of the material. You will receive support via this literature and will quickly recognize how music theory supports your efforts with either singing or playing the piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your voice is unique to you. How you currently sing and what you want to sing will be the foundation from which we work. We will explore your voice and strengthen it via breath and physical exercises and practice with a repertoire that suits your individual tastes. We will also prepare your mind for quick and fluid articulation of your musical sensitivities.

Music theory and various musical explorations will assist you in moving forward in the most rapid manner possible. Whether you are twelve years old or sixty-five, you will find fun as well as perceptive methods for strengthening your passion for musical performance.

Since your body is your instrument, I am very conscious of the need to assist you in waking your body up in order to perform most successfully. The warm-up exercises include not only traditional vocalizes, but also methods for stretching your body and strengthening your diaphragmatic breathing. My students become very aware of any residual tension in their bodies. Singing is a wonderful way to get in touch with - and expel - any way in which you might 'close down' or 'tense down' your physical body. By working with a caring professional, you will learn how to freely share your unique talent with the world.

As we progress through the series of classes, you will use breathing exercises to activate the thoracic (throat & chest) and visceral (stomach) cavities. Your lessons will continue into specific vocalization exercises; such as singing scales, triads and specific exercises to assist you with fluid musical expression. Traditional ear training will also be a part of the lessons for intermediate students.

Many of the lessons I teach include a theme of working on confidence, vocal projection, breath support, finding and releasing tension, vocal range expansion, audition preparation and stage performance. All singing includes a core of story-telling. You will be encouraged to 'deconstruct' a song and discover the story, along with the emotions that are found in the lyrics of the songs you will sing.

______________________

In a similar fashion, my piano students will work on exercises to establish kinesthetic learning or muscle-memory. I have a unique method for sharing chord-progressions and piano improvisation. You will learn to quickly share music in a satisfying and pleasing manner that will surprise you and the people who hear your music. From your unique 'ear,' and via your new-found understanding of music theory, music will pour out of your piano.

As a piano student, you will also be exposed to lessons of the masters who have taught for hundreds of years. Sight-reading at the piano is a very enjoyable skill. It is also a foundation from which we will work (while taking in mind your particular interests). Again, whether a pre-teen or a senior citizen (or anyone in between!) who has finally found the time to explore their musical talent - you will find classes uniquely suited to your musical trajectory.

Your lessons will proceed as you acquire the ability to successfully perform your exercises and musical literature. Playing the piano fluidly and sharing your abilities with others is an amazing experience! It is my intent to ensure that your progress is swift, enjoyable and based on the work of the masters who have come before us! See you soon... Cordially, Marty W.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, metronome, microphone and amp. I can provide supplemental piano music; in some cases, students will need to purchase their own music. I also have an area where parents can wait for lessons to end. We also have a market or restaurant close-by as well.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling to student's homes - they need to have a piano. In some cases, students also need to buy their own voice or piano books. In the event that a vocal student prefers in-home lessons and does not have a piano, I can bring an electric piano to the lessons (let's talk!).

*** Specialties ***

About Me

I grew up with music surrounding me. Both my parents play many instruments and they have passed that love on to me and my brothers. I started singing as a toddler and piano and flute came soon after. I love to teach, am patient and help my students to achieve their best. I create an environment for my students to feel safe expressing themselves, making mistakes,laughing and honing their musical language.

In my voice lessons I teach solid technique focusing on bringing out the beauty of each individual's voice giving them the tools to be able to sing musically. I've been told by students that they have learned more from me in 2 lessons then they have working with prior teachers for years.

I earned my BM in Vocal Performance from the distinguished Eastman School of Music. I have earned the Bravo!Scholar and Howard Hanson award as well as first place in the Schubert Club vocal competition. I continue my studies with acclaimed Mezzo-soprano Gail Dubinbaum in Phoenix and I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing (NATS).

I've sung all over the united states as well as in Germany and Italy. I performed the role of Frasquita in Phoenix Opera's production of Carmen as well as La Fata Azzurra in "La Bella Dormente nel Bosco" and as Sister Constance in "Dialogues des Carmelites" of which I was acclaimed by reviewers to have "revealed a luminous voice, and sang with ease and spontaneity." I have been a soloist with the St Paul Chamber Orchestra as well as with the Eastman Collegium. This past December I was a featured soloist with the Phoenix Symphony and returned to the Phoenix Opera to perform The Queen of the Night in The Magic Flute as well as worked with the Ohio Light Opera performing the lead roles of Hannah Glawari in "The Merry Widow" and Madame Pompadour in "Madame Pompadour."

I'm equally comfortable with musical theater and have played leading roles in many productions including Marian in "The Music Man," Laurie in Oklahoma, Margy in "State Fair," Rapunzel in "Into the Woods," and Mrs. Gardiner in the premier production of "Pride and Prejudice."

My students have advanced in the Classical Singer National Competition, Arizona Fiesta Chorus Competition, Hot Pipes Competition, and have been accepted to and attended summer programs at distinguished music schools including Westminster College and Eastman School of Music. They also perform with local theaters including Copperstar Theater, Moezart Productions, EVCT and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every vocal student will have different talents and struggles and will be at different levels so, I structure my lessons for the individual. However, with every student I focus on teaching correct breathing and healthy vocal use to enhance the natural beauty of the voice.

Overall I have a laid back, humorous personality. I work to help the student achieve their goals whether its to be able to sing better in the shower or to become a professional musician. I offer 2 recitals per year to perform at and often form duets/trio's out of my students. I also offer studio classes for my singers who desire to have more performing experience with immediate encouraging feedback and for my more advanced singers I offer Master classes with guest artists to perform at and attend.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room w/ piano, books, mirror, and seating for parents. Parents can observe if the student is comfortable with that but, I do not allow parents to comment on the student's singing of performance during the lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If they are a voice student they will need a piano, and they will need to purchase their own music and if possible purchase a recording device to record lessons and technique exercises. If they are a flute student, they will need to provide the music, and the instrument. If they are a piano student, obviously they would need a piano and would provide their own music based on my suggestion.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Opera, Operetta, Broadway, and jazz. I also teach pop, rock and country. On the piano and flute I teach classical and contemporary. I do not teach jazz piano or flute.
