About Me

Arguably one of the most dynamic emerging vocal producers and songwriters to penetrate the music industry, “Candy” offers a brave, but fresh take on life through song. A native of Washington D.C., Candy studied and performed with the esteemed Washington Performing Arts Society for 7 years and graduated from Howard University with a Bachelors in Fine Arts. She has also trained and studied at the home of Seth Riggs in Los Angeles, which afforded her years of solid experience with Speech Level Singing (SLS), a widely-popular technique created by Seth Riggs and used to coach clients like Michael Jackson, Beyonce', and many others. She's advanced through over 4 years of professional training and performing in Theatre Arts and has also crafted an acclaimed approach to Broadway music and acting for the stage.

Candy is practiced and has worked alongside some of the industry's best as a writer, studio coach and vocal producer. Her clientele includes a growing list of popular performers and producers across national lines. With a range that spans several genres, it is increasingly easy to see why her buzz is growing also. Candy has already worked with some of the most respected names in music including Rich Harrison (Crazy In Love-Beyonce, No One Gonna Love You-Jennifer Hudson), Jazze Pha (Ciara, Cee Lo, T.I.), and James “Big Jim” Wright (Yolanda Adams, Chaka Khan, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson), having also caught the attention of Missy Elliot and Swizz Beats. The list continues to expand. A 4.0 graduate and well-versed professional, her value is irrefutable.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach is student specific. Everyone does not respond to the same teaching style. I will assess where you are vs where you aspire to be and together, we will formulate a plan to get you there. In 3-6 months, the biggest thing you will walk away with is the confidence to explore and perform to your greatest potential, and the understanding that it will grow with you as you do. I am offering methods I've benefited from and acquired across multiple genres of music, each having heavily impacted the other. I am also an advocate for hands on learning! Let's dig in and get to it! Let's also record your lessons on my Protools set up so that you forever have a point of reference.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room set up.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to have the ability to take notes in a way that works for them (hand-held recorder, pen & paper/laptop, etc). They should also provide material they would like to focus on or I can provide as well, once discussed.

*** Specialties ***
I gear toward a focus of bringing the student into the moment/lesson and the artist into the performance. It is my goal in every aspect of teaching to help my students find truths to which they can relate and live honestly within. Finding a relatable link between them and the content of the lesson has made all the difference in my learning and teaching experience. I believe honing in on that honesty to be the key to an exceptionally developed craft. My style is defined by the ability to experience each new moment in the now, as you are. In doing so, you open yourself up and become readily available to internalize the nuances of your learning process.

About Me

Hello,

I am a cool musician with a passion for teaching. I grew up singing, and learned much of what I know from being surrounded by excellent musicians. That real life hands on training has helped me a great deal now that I am a Music Education Major.

When I am working with students I like to work with them on a personal, one on one level. I take the time to get to know their needs as an individual artist, and what their goals are, so that I can design a program that works best for them.

As a musician and a teacher the greatest thing for me, is when I see progress in my students. I love to see them transform from just singers into true performers and artist.

I am most comfortable teaching genres of: pop, r&b, soul, acoustic, indie, hip-hop, country, classical, and music theatre.

I genuinely LOVE all types of music, and always keep an open mind to new things!

I enjoy when my students become involved in their lessons, and bring ideas and suggestions to the table. That type of input not only helps them, but it helps me learn more about them as an individual and an as artist.

I am very open minded instructor, and I love working with people with different interest, and diverse backgrounds!

*** Lesson Details ***
When I begin new lessons with a student our first lesson together will be finding out the students goals, what their capabilities are, and what they want to learn. In a first lesson I generally begin by having the student sing a song they are comfortable, and familiar with. Then I assess their vocal abilities, and we design warm-ups based upon their needs and goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Practice Rooms: space can be reserved, piano and music stand and chairs, parents can sit in on lesson, parking lot near.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If lessons are in a student home we will need a piano, or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I'm familiar with methods used in classical singing, as well as Pop and R&B styles.

About Me

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books. Students must have their own instrument (keyboards are acceptable for taking piano lessons). I always council students on brand, quality of instrument they are purchasing before they buy it.

*** Specialties *** I have been a public school music educator for over 20 years, and have taught band, orchestra, and choir which enables me to teach many instruments and voice. I also have been a language and reading tutor for over 6 years and have worked with students with special needs for over 10 years.
I studied classical guitar with master guitarist, Christopher Parkening, at Montana State University where I graduated with a B.M.E. . I also did graduate work at MSU in composition. I teach Suzuki piano and violin. I am an accomplished composer/songwriter with many published and recorded songs and isntrumental works through ASCAP. I endeavor to make learning fun, and enjoy teaching students of all ages!

About Me

Alooooooooha! My name is Thea and I am so excited to share with you my passions and help you develop yours. I owned my own dance studio and have been teaching tap, ballet, and world dance (folk dance, Indian, African, etc.) since 2003. I've also been involved in theatre since I was 10 years old and I've been in over 30 stage shows, done commercials for Nickelodeon, and even been paid to act! I just started teaching theatre this year but I absolutely love it and have loved helping my students gain confidence in their performance, discover new characters, and explore unforeseen avenues that they never thought possible. I went to Brigham Young University Idaho where I studied Theatre and Dance. I am an energetic and enthusiastic person who likes to work hard and have fun. My teaching style is very free, organic, and creative because I want you to find your talent and passion within and become your own artist where you can learn to do these things too. I do have an Arizona Fingerprint Clearance Card which means I passed a background check.

About Me

I have always been involved in acting all my life. Now, I know almost everyone says that, but truly, I have! Once I graduated High School I went straight to New York. I attended the New York Conservatory For Dramatic Arts: School of Film, Television, and Theater. While there, I learned the form of Meisner Technique, voice acting, improv, theater, camera acting, movement acting, scene studies, theater history, and just about everything besides singing. I was also a founder of an improv troupe in New York, called The Unemployed Actors Guild. We ran professional shows for two years in the city until we graduated from the program. When I auditioned I was placed in the top twenty, and I graduated top five of my class. Seeing as how there is not great acting in Arizona (I haven't seen anything impressive here in Arizona) I though I would teach people how to be better! So join me, sign up and I'll show you how to improve yourself in the art that we love!
