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!
Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Trumpet, French Horn, Trombone
As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeast later in life and even to China with a 1940's Radio Show. I enjoyed many top-level bands the kindled my love and passion for good music. I want to share that kindling with my students in a nurturing and guiding situation, just like my teachers gave me.
I used to go to lessons and become so motivated and inspired that I thought I could change the world. I always knew that I would want to give back exactly that. As my performance opportunities grew into venues like Churchill Grounds, The Eyedrum, The Rialto, and The Variety Playhouse in Atlanta and Radio City Music Hall and Flushing Town Hall in New York, my fire for wanting to develop my teaching did also. I was always thinking back to what my old teachers gave me, inspiration. I then understood that inspiration is the key to success in life.
Drum, Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Percussion
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.
Piano, Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice
I started my musical training as a pianist at YAMAHA institute at age 4 in Japan. I was selected to enter perfect pitch class. It was designated for students who have perfect pitch and potentials to be professional musicians.
I enjoyed playing piano and electric piano and won the 1st prize at Kitakantou Electric Piano Competition hosted by YAMAHA institute. Because of the intensive training, I have been accompanying my students' recitals and performance exams.
As much as I enjoyed playing piano, I discovered that I also love singing, so I started to take singing lessons and majored in vocal performance during my college days.
Since I have graduated, I have been performing opera professionally. Some of the roles that I have performed include Pamina in Mozart's Magic flute with Manhattan Opera Studio, Frasquita in Bizet's Carmen with One World Symphony, Zerlina in Mozart's Don Giovanni, Clorinda in Rossini's La Cenerentola with Capitol Heights Opera, Alice in Rossini's Le comte Ory with West Side Opera Society, Adele in J.Strauss's Die Fledermaus,Susanna in Mozart's Le Nozze di Figaro with Opera Avanti, Gilda in Verdi's Rigoletto with Academie Internationale d'ete de Nice, Novice in Puccini's Suor Angelica with The Eastern Festival Opera and La Cercatoricia in Puccini's Suor Angelica and the first spirit in Mozart's Die Zauberflöte with Opera Company of Brooklyn.
My media exposures include presenting myself as an aspiring opera singer on the website of Maybeline New York. My voice was featured for three short films for NEC computer company, Japan. I was selected as a finalist of Arkadi Foundation's Opera Idol Competition at Merkin Hall, Lincoln Center, New York City and interviewed by Jewish Weekly News Television as a featured finalist for The Arkadi Foundation Opera Idol Competition. I will sing as a Soprano Soloist of a film project TAKEABITE the Opera directed by Mr. David Antonio Cruz, November 2013 at El Museo Del Barrio, NYC.
My international credits include Academie Interanationale d'ete de Nice, France, Daniel Ferro Vocal Program in Chianti, Italy, International Vocal Arts Institute(IVAI)in Tel Aviv, Israel and Young Artist Concert Series in Japan. I was selected as a finalist of Hariclea Darclée International Voice Competition, Bralia, Romania in August 2012.
Besides being an opera singer, I have been teaching piano and voice for 9 years and would like to share my skills and experience with you. Since I perform often, I can coach you how to perform on stage in addition to building solid technique and languages. Also, I have taught various kinds of music, such as Rock, Broadway musicals, Pop music, so we can work on all kind of music.
I look forward to teaching you soon!
