It's hard to objectively assess your sound when your instrument is part of your body. Think about the difference between how you think you sound and what you hear when you listen to a recording of your voice. Your first instinct is to say that the recording is distorting your voice, right? That's why you need a voice coach with a trained ear and proven techniques to guide and teach you as you develop your polished and professional sound. I teach professionals and beginners from age 10 and up.
I think my artistic knowledge, skills and background are the foundation for voice instruction for beginners and professionals alike. The goal is to have you benefit from my years of training and experience. I am the product of many excellent teachers, coaches, stage directors and conductors. And, I have taught privately and in master classes for over many years.
There are many basics skills which each singer must master in order to sing healthily, happily and beautifully, but each person has his or her own learning needs and style.

Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orchestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through practice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and allows the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

Music has been a part of my life for over 4 decades. I stepped onstage when I was 15, and have been active in the music business ever since. I was raised in the New York / New England area, and played in many bands in the 70's and 80's, most notably the band AVALON. I moved to Florida in the late 80's and began to develop a one man show, using the emerging technology available. I called the show YIN YANG, the infinite possibility of Music. I chose the name, as it is the Oriental symbol for balance, and used it to represent the balance between the electric and acoustic, and the technology of today with the classic music from yesterday. Midi guitar and guitar synthesis became my trademarks as I pushed the boundaries of how I could express myself on the guitar. Being able to play sax, flute, strings, pianos, even percussion on the guitar took my imagination to new places and enabled me to express myself in ways I didn't know were possible. I grew up influenced by the classic rock guitarists such as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, Eric Clapton, Alvin Lee, Duane Allman, and used their techniques to springboard me into developing my style. I am also influenced by some of the great guitarists of today, such as Satriani, Vai, Bonamassa, etc. I am fluent in electric and acoustic guitar, slide guitar, open tunings, modal playing, and guitar synthesis. I also can play and teach mandolin, ukulele, banjo, bass, and also harmonica and folk harp. I am working on the bagpipes now. I also give lessons on music technology, audio recording, and music software such as Sonar, Reason, and Finale, to name a few. Music is the passion that feeds my soul, and a decade ago I started teaching, to have a chance to give back to the next generation and share what I have learned along the way. I love bringing out the soul of each new student I meet.

When I take on a new student, the first thing I do is to sit down and talk to them and find out a bit about them... their personality, what their influences in music are, what artists they like, and what they are looking to be able to accomplish on the instrument. Each student is an individual, so depending on what they like, I will frame my lessons around the styles and artists that they like, and will incorporate the fundamentals and the exercises around the music that they enjoy. I will use the artists and the songs that excite my students to frame the lessons that we work on. I use music software to create custom grooves for each of my students to practice to, and also sometimes use a video cam to film my student working on a particular lesson that they are having trouble with, so that when they go home, they have an example of themselves playing the lesson, so they can study it at home to get it right. I am a firm believer in learning all the rules. I am also a firm believer, when you know the rules, to break them all. You have to know the rules to be able to break them. I will provide you with everything you need to shine on your instrument. My teaching technique is something that I developed myself, is quite unique, and, if you follow my program, you will progress REALLY fast. But keep in mind, anything good is worth working for, and if you REALLY want this, you will grow in leaps and bounds. Most of my students have been with me on an average of 4 to 5 years, some 9 or 10 years. I look forward to meeting you and helping you make magic with music! Ciao!

I have developed a curriculum that combines my knowledge of music software with my teaching technique. This enables me to create musical templates tailored for each student according to their musical interests, what they would like to focus on, and what their ultimate goals are. For example ...lead guitar, rhythm guitar, acoustic guitar accompaniment to their voice, etc. which ends up making for an exciting experience as my student learns their instrument framed around the styles of music that they enjoy.

Helene grew up in Bara, a small village outside of Malmo, at the southern tip of Sweden.
At a very early age Helene showed signs of being a performer and enjoyed being the center of attention. With 2 older brothers, Michael, 8 years older and Patrik, 5 years older, there was no lack of attention.
Helene’s grandfather was a very well respected violinist, holding 1st violin chair at Malmo Stadsteater for over 30 years. In addition, her grandmother was known to have a beautiful voice. Helene considers them a major influence.
Helene pursued every performance opportunity she got growing up, both in school and outside of school.
At the age of 10 she joined a church choir that traveled the country to do performances. This is where she learned the basic techniques of singing.
When she was 14 years old she joined a local theatre company where she got cast in the lead role of a musical named “Life of Francisco”.
At 15 she started taking voice lessons at the University of Music in Malmo, enrolled there for 3 years.
Helene was also taking dance lesson’s on a daily basis and was cast to sing in the dance studio’s yearly performances.
At 18 she got admitted to the Ballet Academy in Gothenburg where she studied for a year in the musical theatre program.
At age 19, her mother convinced her to audition for “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” in Malmo, she was one out of 600 people auditioning and she was cast in the lead role as The Narrator. The show played to sold out houses for 2 years. During that time, Swedish songwriter, Monica Forsberg, was looking for a new talent to do the voice over for a coming Disney movie “Pocahontas”. Monica was told about Helene from the director in “Joseph” Gordon March. Her voice over audition was sent to the USA and the role of Pocahontas was Helene’s and she was thrilled. It was a dream come true at the age of 19.
Helene then went on to do TV appearances and concert’s in Sweden and was also working at a very popular dinner theatre “Wallmans Salonger“.
By the age of 20, Helene’s voice teacher, Jack Abraham, from NY, had opened a new possibility for Helene. The idea of leaving Sweden to go to NY and study musical theatre thrilled her. In June 1998 Helene was admitted to AMDA (American Musical and Dramatic Academy). Helene graduated with the highest marks for all of her final school performances. Helene continued working in Sweden after moving to NY, doing the voice of Pocahontas in Pocahontas II “A journey to a new world” and Christmas concert’s in Stockholm at Nalen with her performer friend Niklas Andersson.
In 2004 Helene moved to South Florida after meeting her now husband at a singing engagement at the Flagler Museum in Palm Beach. Since moving to South Florida Helene has been doing musical theatre, “Respect” (Stagedoor Theater) and “I love a Piano” (Cuillo Center for the Arts). In addition Helene has been singing all over South Florida doing corporate events and the like. Among them, being the opening act for Andrea Bocelli.
Helene has been writing music since her teen’s but just recently finished producing her own CD of original songs.
Feeling fortunate to work as a singer, Helene is both blessed and grateful for the amazing gift. However, having her daughter Marielle tops everything!!
Last year Helene signed a contract with Palm Beach Opera, this year she will be singing in Macbeth and The Tales of Hoffmann at the beautiful Kravis Center for the Arts in West Palm Beach.

The students needs to have their books & materials available as well as a pencil. I always stress with my students to be organized and prepared for their lesson, this way they will be able to focus better during the lesson. I also ask that the room where the lesson takes place to be free of any distractions, such other siblings or any other noise. The quiet environment helps in faster learning.
*** Lesson Details ***
30 minute lesson - Typically do 10 to 12 minutes of warm-up and the rest of the time is devoted to practical application of technique to your songs, as well as, performance aspects. I also offer hour lessons.

D. is a multi-instrumentalist composer. His sound is a combination of the sweeping melodies of Debussy, the introspection of Coldplay, and the organic experimentation of Balmorhea. At its core, his music tells a story. Like a good movie, the music flows up and down, twists and turns in the middle, and when the journey is over, it will leave an imprint on your heart.
D. has performed in a variety of venues throughout Florida. Most notable are the Social and Lyrica in Orlando and the Colony Theatre on South Beach. Before This Moment is his debut album released in 2013. It contains an eclectic mix of music with some tracks that date back to 2003. He is also an active commercial and film composer. He has won six Gold Addy Awards for commercials that he co-composed with John Jay Martyn from Audacity Recording Studios. He has worked with Audacity for over four years as a composer, producer, and guitarist and has released over 20 projects together.
D. is currently working on an original score for a video game called “Crazy Cat Lady” which will be commercially available in early 2014.
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
