I am a music lover, educator, and songwriter. I have been playing music since I was very young and it has consistently brought joy into my life. I have been teaching since 2007, specifically to share the joy i find in music. I teach because I think everyone is capable of making great music, and I want to help you figure out how.
I grew up in California and have toured extensively throughout the western US. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I earned my degree in Guitar Performance in 3 years. Since then I've been teaching, writing, and playing non stop.
*** Lesson Details ***
My Students get a very individualized experience. I want to help you play the music you love or want to create. We start playing songs as soon as possible, because it provides a context for instrument fundamentals and music theory. I'm not particularly strict, but in order to be successful a student must put forth an earnest effort.
Within a few weeks of starting lessons, my students will be able to play some of their favorite songs, as well as understand the musical concepts the song was written with. Further down the road, my students will have a firm grasp on music theory and will have all the necessary skills to write their own music, be in a band, or simply play music with a deep love and understanding for it.
*** Studio Equipment ***
All Necessary 2 Guitar Amplifiers, Bass Amplifier. Students only need to bring their instrument, materials, and something to write with. Newly added 88 key weighted keyboard for piano.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano Students must have a piano in house. I can and will provide all other equipment. I prefer for guitar and bass students to have their own amplifiers.
Students are responsible for their own instructional materials.
*** Specialties ***
I love Jazz/Rock/Blues and country. I am classically trained as well. Metal is not my specialty but I CAN teach/play it.

Vocalist/ Songwriter/Composer Angelia W. was born on July 18,1975 in Chicago, IL. By the early age of three, Angelia had already grown a love for music and loved to sing. However, it wouldn't be until a few years later that she would develop a sincere desire to become a serious musician. By the age of 9, Angelia was singing lead vocals with her local church choir, and by 14, she was touring already with the duet act “Tamara and Angie”.
While touring, Angelia became a well known mezzo- soprano whose broad vocal range also include alto and tenor. From 1992 until 2002, Angelia held the position of Praise and Worship Lead and Section Leader at one of the largest churches in the Greater Milwaukee area; Balm and Gilead For All People International Ministries. In concert with this experience, over the years she has also performed, toured and recorded with well know gospel groups such as The Enspired Chorale, The Voices of Praise, Shekinah, and the Minneapolis Gospel Sound. She has had the pleasure of performing in concert with some of the biggest names in gospel music such as Fred Hammond, The Men of Standard, Karen Clarke-Sheard, Detrick Haddon, and Kim Burrell just to name a few.
In the fall of 2002, Angelia decided that she didn't just want to perform, but rather teach music, and began her formal education at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee majoring in Music with a concentration in voice, of which she now holds a Bachelors degree.
Angelia is well versed in many genres such as Gospel, Jazz, Classical, R&B, etc. and she brings her long history of performance and excellence to her private voice studio that is sure to enrich every student vocally and performance wise also.
