About Me

I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (4 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator in Florida, California, and Tennessee between the years of 1983 to 1997. I taught private students after school in my classroom while I was a public school teacher, and from my home since 1997. My post-graduate continuing professional education includes Tennessee Arts Academy at Belmont University, Kodaly Pedagogy and Solfege Level 1 (vocal teaching techniques, do-re-mi, ear training), Orff-Schulwerk Music for Children Level 1 certification, Yamaha M.I.E. (Music In Education) Piano Lab certification. My professionalism and expertise are at your service. I will work together with you to insure an enjoyable and informative learning experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
A typical lesson in my studio would begin with a brief question/answer time with the student to learn how their week has gone, and how their music practice is progressing.

For PIANO LESSONS we begin with Technique including scales and dexterity exercises, then we play from the Lesson book and a Recital selection. I typically let the student play through the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to play the piece again. After that we go over the Theory assignments, and do Ear Training exercises. I am comfortable teaching from a variety of different methods courses. The methods course is chosen according to the student's interest. I never require a piano student to continue using books that are not inspiring. There so many methods courses available, that a student may always be able to have methods books they LOVE.

In my SINGING LESSONS we also begin with a recap of the student's week. Then we continue with Warm Up exercises to prepare the student's voice for the lesson. Then we study Sight Singing and Solfege Singing (do-re-mi-fa-sol-la-ti-do) to increase the student's listening skills. After that the student sings their selections. Like I do in Piano lessons, I listen to the pieces they have prepared without interruption, then I call attention to corrections that need to be made, I demonstrate the correction, and then ask the student to sing the piece again. I am comfortable teaching many styles of vocal music including classical, Broadway, pop, rock, and Christian.

For MUSIC THEORY lessons, the study material is chosen according to the student's interest and age. Topics include notation, chord structure, chord progression, melodic structure, and harmony. I also incorporate Music Listening in the Music Theory lesson in order to learn from the masters in many styles of music. My Music Theory students will also have the opportunity to develop composition and songwriting skills if they desire.

My teaching style is structured and friendly, keeping the student's goals and interests at the forefront. I enjoy motivating students to reach their highest potential.
After 3 to 6 months in my studio my students will see improvement in their musical technique, ear training, music reading, notation, and knowledge. They will be preparing recital pieces for an upcoming performance. I provide two recital opportunities a year: in December, and in May. Most importantly, the student's love and appreciation of music will be growing.

About Me

I have been a professional musician for over 13 years and am currently lead guitarist for Starstruck/Sony artist Caroline Kole, having opened for Reba McEntire, Blake Shelton, Martina MCBride and many other great acts.

I started out as so many others did wanting to be a rock star, jumping around my room, guitar in hand, to my favorite artists. When I got serious about music I began my 8 years of classical training at the Pinellas County Center for The Arts and continued through out college at St. Petersburg College. I have a strong background in many styles including Rock/Pop, Indie, Blues, Country, Jazz, Fingerstyle/Classical and Music Theory.

*** Lesson Details ***
Having been in the student seat throughout my training, I know that the right teacher makes all the difference. That is why I believe it is so important to find a teacher that is invested in your success and understands and values the student/teacher relationship.

My students find me to be a patient teacher who is able to balance the fun and excitement of learning a new instrument and the discipline necessary to develop a new skill and achieve your musical goals.

I tailor all of my lessons based on your individual goals and abilities with a custom curriculum I have developed over 13 years of teaching. Whether you just want to strum along on the couch, jam out with other players, write your own songs, or start a band, I can give you the skills, confidence and motivation to help you succeed and follow your musical dream.

Music has been my passion as long as I can remember, and teaching others who feel the same is what I love doing. I hope we work together one day and find out what we can accomplish together!

Angelia W. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Christian Gospel, Classical Voice, Gospel Singing, Musical Theater, Music Performance, Opera Voice, Singing

About Me

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.
