Natasha D. Ann Arbor, MI

About Natasha

Nothing gives me greater pleasure than singing. It is my privilege to help you channel your creative expression through your unique instrument! All singing is based on a freedom from muscular tension, and I can help you find that no matter the genre.

*** Lesson Details ***
We'll spend the first couple lessons focusing on breathing, spending time to anatomically understand how the body uses airflow. We'll work on loosening body tension and muscular tightness, then introduce vocal exercises that will build on your new sense of bodily ease and comfort. After that foundation, we can begin working on whatever repertoire you want to focus on, whether it is upcoming church music, your school's musical theater production, or traditional early Italian arias. I have extensive ...

Dedicated teacher!

This instructor is very flexible and understanding. He is very knowledgeable and talented and I'm very privileged to be his student. He takes his time to make sure that you are understanding and learning. You can sense his excitement and passion for music and I know that he honestly wants to see me succeed. I even decided to switch instruments after a few lessons and he was very supportive and started all over with me without and objections or irritation!

About Benjamin

Hello Future STUDENTS!

This year I moved from NYC to Ypsilanti. I lived there for over 10 years and learned a great deal in Networking, Performance and Teaching. Because I have had to let go of my 25+ students from the East Coast, I am now eager to build a new base of fresh Music Students. Since I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, I am happy to be back and ready to go :)

Whether you want to pursue a Musical Career or simply learn how to Play your Favorite Tunes for friends and family, I am here as your Teacher and Guide. I teach at my own home, commute to yours or through the use of Skype. Your choice.

As a Father of four, I have had the joy in teaching my children Guitar, Saxophone, Songwriting, Composition and Keyboard. As a parent I have found that Patience and Encouragement ...

Marie K. Ypsilanti, MI

About Marie

Music can be found in every part of the world in every culture and there is nothing better than to be able to make your own music. I am a dramatic soprano and possess my master's degree in vocal performance and am still active as an opera singer around the country. I have a real passion for music and enjoy opening the doors for you to have the same enjoyment; and if we hit a road block there are always windows that can be opened! I have taken music lessons since I was five, so I am familiar with the trials and tribulations faced at all levels by music students and I have the patience and ability to work with you to achieve your musical goals. I have worked as a private teacher for several years with students as young as five and as old as mid-eighties and believe all that is ...

My lessons with Marie are perfect for me. She is a very positive person which adds to my excitement of learning. Marie also understands that each person has areas of music that are easier to grasp than others areas and provides me with worksheets for my difficult areas; very helpful. Marie is also able to recognize how much I can do in a week (how many pages in the lesson and technique books) so I don't feel overwhelmed or underwhelmed.

I look forward to many more lessons with Marie and give her a 5 star rating. BTW, she comes to my house, which I appreciate, which allows me to play on my own piano for lessons.

Helped my daughter with more than just piano

I never realized how much positive growth my daughter would gain from learning music.

Abby was a shy ten year old when she first started taking piano from Marie. After a year of working with Marie, Abby is doing better in school, has friends, and has come out of her shell. I do believe learning music in a supportive, loving environment helped her. Abby said to me the other day that with a little practice and hard work she can do anything; shoot for the stars and you might just land on the moon. That is something I have heard Marie say to her before too.

I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Kelly C. Whitmore Lake, MI

About Kelly

Greetings! My name is Kelly and I have been teaching voice and piano since 1991.

My training in voice/singing/performance/Voice Movement Therapy has been extensive and multi-faceted as has my own performance experience. This has enabled me to successfully guide/mentor students who are not only singers of classical, musical theater, pop, folk, and jazz, but also people who use their speaking voices to teach, present and act.

My teaching approach is more holistic in that it not only addresses the technical and physical influences that affect the singing/speaking process, but also the emotional and psychological influences.

I work with ANYONE who wishes to vocally express themselves more freely and authentically, including those who consider themselves to be tone-deaf.

While ...

Kelly is a very supportive, knowledgeable, fun and gentle singing coach/teacher. She has many talents and a diverse background which allows her to work with students in a very comprehensive and holistic way. I have worked with other singing teachers and Kelly's working knowledge of the physical body far exceeds my previous teachers. I really enjoy taking lessons with Kelly.

In my two year of working with Kelly I've gone from fragile, terrified whisper-singing to singing alone with clear tone and pitch, a Capella, at an open mic. I still have barriers, but with Kelly's encouragement and advice I've learned to recognize their cause, and I've also knocked many down---I have a set of tools to draw on when my nerves start taking over, and I owe this to working with Kelly and her holistic approach to voice training. Kelly is patient with all levels of ability and purpose, and can deal with multiple aspects of training, from emotional barriers to technical challenges.

I first met Kelly through her Ann Arbor Rec and Ed ‘fundamentals of singing’ class, and a few of us enjoyed the experience so much we decided to continue and take classes as a group with Kelly. I was interested in singing not so much to be ‘good’ as to learn and practice enough to really enjoy singing more again, with an eye to possibly joining a chorus. I’d loved to sing with family or friends in my youth but had little opportunity left to do it. I was petrified of performing, and though I thought I could more or less stay in tune, I didn't think I really had much of a voice behind it.

Kelly knows her stuff technically, she really does, but just as important she knows how to bring out the best in her students. She makes everyone comfortable and is always positive, open, and encouraging, as well as being delightful person to be around! When we first worked with Kelly, all of us were nervous about anything resembling performance, but the supportive atmosphere she creates, and techniques she taught us combined to help us feel at ease singing in front of each other, and eventually audiences – taking measured risks and all the while trying to tamp down our internal critics… I think we have all learned both how to unlock to our own authentic voice and personality in performance, but also to tap into alternate personas in order to deliver all kinds of songs – without any pressure to be ‘right’ or perfect technically, but just to use technique as one piece of the puzzle. She is also very skilled at being able to pinpoint trouble spots, and communicate ways to work around or through issues in very practical terms though too, and suggests useful and personalized exercises for homework. She also guided us tremendously well in group singing and harmony.
