About Me

It all started out in a small town called Chatham, NJ where I spent the first thirteen years of my life. I remember loving music as early as I could walk and talk. I started taking guitar lessons when I was seven years old. Along with the guitar, came a love for singing and writing my own songs. When we moved to Pennsylvania the guitar came with me. Throughout my high school years, I spent hours playing with teachers, fellow students and at parties.

When I was sixteen every week for three years I would drive an hour into Philadelphia, by myself, to study with world famous Artie Singer. His students include such names as Chubby Checker, Frankie Avalon, Al Martino, and Bobby Rydel. Artie co-wrote and produced two massive hit records “At the Hop” and “Rock ‘n Roll is Here to Stay,” both recorded by Danny and the Juniors. Artie was personal friends with Dick Clark and would bring him acts for his show.

While going to a Community College in Philadelphia the music teacher there took notice of me, pulled me aside, and told me about a great music school I should attend. He then sent away for the application and helped me fill it out. The next thing I knew I was in Boston attending Berklee School of Music! I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Jazz and Rock Composition, Arranging, and Guitar.

I had originally gone to Berklee intending to major in voice, however I had no luck with the vocal department there and ended up with nodules on my vocal cords. The damage was so significant that I had to stop singing during my four years at Berklee and turned to studying Guitar and Composition.

I tried every vocal teacher in town wanting more than anything to be a singer. What I found was no teacher could help me and it seemed obvious that even though they had the “big name” they didn't know what they wt. I was losing hope. The combination of this roadblock and my persistence led me to the greatest thing that ever happened in my life....... I met Dante Pavone!

I kept hearing about a singing teacher named Dante Pavone. Since I had already tried everyone else, I decided to give him a shot. On my first lesson with Dante I noticed a big difference. My throat didn't hurt at all and a real voice was coming out of me. I was cured!

Dante’s studies were extensive and he had doctorates in voice, music history, psychology and many other subjects. He was the most intelligent; insightful person I have ever met in my life and not only taught me about voice but taught me many things about life. He one time told me that he had a more profound knowledge of all the fine singing muscles than anyone else.

Dante was the first; a “pioneer” in popular singing, breaking from the traditional operatic style. He taught, or was contacted by, such singers as John Lennon and Paul McCartney (Beatles), Mick Jagger (Rolling Stones), Aretha Franklin, Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane), Steve Tyler (Aerosmith), Peter Wolf (JGiles Band), James and Livingston Taylor, Faye Dunaway, Tom Jones, Donna Summers, Jonathan Richman, Julianna Hatfield, Andy Pratt, at their prime and the list goes on and on. Once John Lennon and Paul McCartney showed up unannounced at his door handing him a blank check! Singers from New York City Opera Company used to sneak away from their teachers and come to Boston to study with Dante who would cure their wrecked voices from their famous opera teachers they had in NY. Best Singing Teacher in the World!

I studied with Dante every day for the first couple of years and then two or three times a week after that for fifteen years until his demise in 1998. I never missed a lesson! He gave me over a four-octave range where I started with only a five-note one. Not only did he improve my pitch and tone, but I can now sing and scream all night, if I want to, and never have a single vocal problem. In fact the more I sing the better my voice feels!

One day at my lesson Dante asked if he could pass his method down to me. This has been a great honor to me and although many teachers try to emulate his method I am the only one with a certificate as seen above. Not only was Dante my mentor, but still to this day he is the most important person I ever encountered in my life and was my best friend. We were very close and he would spend hours talking to me at lessons not only about music but about many fascinating subjects and opened my eyes to many incredible things.

Thirteen of my songs were chosen to be in one movie called Getting Personal and other songs in the movies Fillbilly and Dykeotomies. My band has won world contests.

I have also studied piano, guitar, and drums extensively and teach all instruments. I studied for years with late great world renowned Charlie Banacos and John Horrigan. Besides teaching I am a songwriter, dancer, actress, film maker, audio engineer and producer as well. I can help you record your songs!

Since 1982 I have written hundreds of songs and have been performing and recording my own music in major New England and New York venues. I've also won awards for my band "Girl on Top."

My voice lessons studio is in Somerville, Massachusetts (MA), but I teach online singing worldwide via webcam internet video calls such as Skype, IChat, Tiny Chat, AOL AIM, Google Talk, Face Time Warner, Snapyap, Imo.im, MSN Yahoo,Tokbox, Palbee, Vyew, Many singing students come from Somerville, Cambridge, Charlestown, Everett, Malden, Medford, Boston, , etc. I teach children and adults of all ages and levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
Anyone Can Learn With My Method
It is completely untrue that some people are "born to sing or play an instrument" while others are not. Using my method, the most "tone deaf" can learn to sing perfectly in tune, the most nasal or unappealing sound can be transformed into the most beautiful resonant tone, and someone with "no talent" can become better than anyone out there.  With this superb method when you finish singing your voice will feel better than when you started!  All it takes is desire, patience, perseverance, and above all, practice. I also have a unique and very patient teaching style that can make learning any instrument seem easy. Anyone can learn with my method of teaching.

Breathing
If a teacher tells you breathing is not important you should be concerned. Let me help you to develop solid breathing and correct singing posture. An instrument only sounds as good as it's built. As we build your instrument your range, strength, resonance and stamina all improve. There is no end to how good you can get.

All Styles
The greatest thing about this method is it does not give you a style. You develop your own style! The student brings in songs they want to work on. Pop, rock, hip-hop, alternative, country, progressive, blues, jazz, swing, broadway, folk, rap, r+b, gospel, hardcore, screaming at the top of your lungs (if you want to).

All Levels
I teach all ages and presently have students from three years old to students in their seventies.  Beginners to advanced, adults to elderly, children, kids, and pre-school.  Dante taught me that I can improve a person’s life by teaching them music. He’s certainly improved mine. I hope you will let me help to improve yours.

Vocal Therapist
My method is guaranteed to cure any and all vocal problems or damage you may have from singing or talking: nodules, pitch, range, tone, endurance, etc.

Sing with no break
Have a smooth, multi-octave range. Sing any note the way you like: high or low, hard or soft.

No end to how you can improve
As long as you practice using this method, there is no limit as to how you can improve your range, tone, strength, flexibility, vibrato, phrasing, etc. Let me help you transcend fear, anxiety, and stage fright and replace it with technical ability and self-confidence.

Coaching and Stage Presence
We work on songs that the student brings with them to lessons. Using acting techniques, I help them understand the true meaning of the song and how to convey it to an audience.

Guitar Lesson
Learn easily the basics of rhythm, notes and chords.  Start with the basics and move into learning to play songs that you love. Incorporate learning to sing and play guitar on your favorite tunes.  As the student becomes more confident the lessons move into learning advanced voicing, improvisational techniques and chord solos.  All styles, all levels, all ages.

Piano Lessons
Whether you are a beginner or an advanced professional, any age is welcomed. Learning to play the piano can be lots of fun and very rewarding with practice, persistence and the proper instruction. Learn easily the basics of rhythm, notes and chords.  In the first lesson you will be able to play with both hands.  As you continue lessons it will be fun and exciting to learn to play popular piano pieces.  The more advanced student will have fun learning to improvise and play chord solos.

Drum Lessons
Learning to play the drums is really easy and fun with my method!  Start by learning how to hold the sticks and position yourself at a full drum set.  At the end of the first lesson you will be able to play beats.  With each lesson new beats, styles and exercises will be added.  As you get more advanced the student can bring in songs they want to learn.  This method is perfect and easy for any beginner or more advanced student.

Bass Lessons
The bass is what holds the rhythm of the band together and provides the foundation and bottom for the chord structure.  The student is taken in a step by step method that is easy to understand starting with learning basic notes, rhythms and finger exercises.  As the student becomes more advanced they can bring in songs that they would like to learn.  All styles, ages and levels.

Ear Training
Developing your ear is essential for any serious musician.  We start by learning to sing simple melodies and rhythms and as the student progresses move to more challenging ones.  Also incorporated will be learning notation and chord and pitch recognition.
Song Writing
Learn to write songs like the pros.  Karen D. has written over two hundred and fifty song.  Let her expertise help you learn the secrets fast.  We will work on song structure, theory and lyric writing.

Theory and Arranging
Karen D. is an honorary graduate of Berklee School of Music in Boston.  There she acquired a degree in Jazz Composition and Arranging.  She will teach you about notes, intervals, scales, chord structures and how chords work together.  Also, you will learn how to arrange a song by adding drums, bass, guitar, horns, strings and whatever your heart desires.

Trumpet

About Me

Matt H. is a Boston-based trumpet player and composer born and raised in the city's South End. He is a contributing member of the eclectic improvisation collective "Jackie Molasses", plays in local funk group "The New Review", a member of the live band of the emerging hip hop duo "The Urban Nerdz" and a member of the indie/punk group "People Like You". Along with his regular music commitments, Matt frequently does session work and work for hire as a freelance trumpet player, composer, and private trumpet/composition teacher in the greater Boston area. He has performed with a diverse group of artists including The Plain White T's, I Kill Giants, and spoken word poets John Sands and Ken Arkind to name a few. Matt has performed at many of Boston's foremost venues and bars and coming from a jazz background he cut his teeth as a sideman in a weekly residency from 2010-2012 at Boston's oldest standing jazz club, Wally's.

At Berklee, Matt has studied composition privately under the direction of local composer and faculty member Ayn Inserto, and trumpet with luminaries Tiger Okoshi and Greg Hopkins. Matt was recently awarded the Thad Jones Award by the Jazz Composition department for outstanding work and achievement, and had one of his big band pieces premiered by the Berklee Concert Jazz Orchestra under the direction of Greg Hopkins. Matt composes/arranges music which draw influence from jazz, rock/pop, metal, folk and world music genres. He has the skill and experience to write for a wide range of ensembles from small to large and in a variety of genres. He is also heavily inspired by the experimentation of electronics by the likes of artists like Bill Dixon, Kneebody and Bill Frisell, and incorporates the use of effects pedals in many different musical contexts.

A recipient of a prestigious full tuition City Music Scholarship, Matt attended Berklee College of Music 2010-14 and graduated this Spring with a dual degree in Jazz Composition and Professional Music.

~What to expect~

I provide a focus on the fundamentals of trumpet playing as well as cater to the student's interests/ambitions and stretch outside the classic trumpet repertoire for a more contemporary approach. (Students will study from classic technique books like the Arban's and Clarke studies, learn tunes by ear, practice improvisation techniques, and most importantly learn how to have fun playing the trumpet!)

Sean P. Brighton, MA

Acoustic Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Trumpet

About Me

I am a Berklee College of Music Alum with an emphasis in trumpet performance. I play Guitar, Piano, and Sing in my own projects.

As an instructor, I provide a unique view point on performing music through an experiential atmosphere. Music is an expressive language and in order to understand it, there are very systematic and simple ways to do so.

Theory, harmony, performance, and practice are all facets that stem from a very common point. Interest. It is important for the student to be learning music that they are interested in, not music that is " best to learn from". If given the right keys, a student can learn a piece without having a teacher shepherd them through it. This means a student learns how to hear what they like from a song. Not what theoretically makes up the song.

The discipline of music facilitates many higher functioning skills like critical thinking skills involved with learning new pieces. It facilitates awareness of self when playing in an orchestra or band( Am I too loud, Am I playing in tune, Am I playing too fast). through my method of teaching, the basis of education is predicated on individuality. What music does the student want to hear?

The exploration of music is meant to be experienced in real time.

Come and experience a session with me!
