*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very fun loving person and believe in creating a positive environment where students feel comfortable to be themselves. At the same time I am a stickler for details and do not allow laziness. I believe a balance of fun with excellence has allowed my students to excel far beyond their own expectations.

My teaching style is individually based.
For vocal clients, I asses their strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to build up their weak areas while helping them find "their own voice". I focus on breathing, intonation and control which I believe are the foundation of great singing ability. I use a classical Italian based program along with pop, R&B, jazz, and rock. I have vocal coached in many languages including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

For piano clients I focus on strength, dexterity and precision in fingering. I also help students learn to feel the music and bring their personality and touch to each piece they are performing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Tanisha currently teaches at her performing arts academy the White H Arts Academy. There are private instruction rooms and a lobby waiting area for parents and guests. Parents may also sit in the lesson room if desired. Private lesson rooms include a piano, speakers, and a music stand.

The White H Arts Academy also has two state of the art mirrored dance rooms with sound systems and wireless microphones for practicing stage performances or rehearsing for a big show.

*** Specialties ***
Vocals: beg to adv
Piano: beg to inter

Vocal genres are classical (opera), pop, R&B, gospel, rock, jazz, blues and musical theater. I studied voice at Berklee College of Music. Have also studied Seth Riggs SLS (Speech Level Singing) method independently, however, I am not certified. I also teach in languages other than English including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

Piano instruction levels I teach are basic to intermediary focusing on classical, and general accompaniment abilities.

For the past 6 months I have taken voice lessons with Tanisha. She has a very warm personality that makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. She is passionate about teaching and also tailors the lessons to who you are as an individual so that she can help to extract the very best out of you as a student. She is encouraging and never judgmental and meets you right where you are at. Most of all, she has abounding patience. I have seen an overall improvement in my vocal ability and can now sing in a range that I thought was impossible for me.

Tanisha is the perfect coach and teacher. She provides both services at such a high level, I definitely would not be where I am today without her guidance.

through the few short weeks I have worked with her, I have improved in my live performances as well as my mental aspects of my singing. the homework she gave during the week has literally changed my confidence and performance. I have never had so many compliments after a concert. It is both uplifting and affirming the hard work I've put into my vocals!! I only see a bright future ahead with Tanisha and myself.

Amazing progress!!

Tanisha is hands down the best vocal coach not only with her knowledge of music and voice but with her willingness to go above and beyond to help her students. She has given me great progress in such a short amount of time, and even takes time out of her day to help me when I need it. Tanisha not only helps build a good singing voice but also gives direction on how to turn it into a career!

Ms. Tanisha is the best instructor I have ever had!

Ms. Tanisha is the best instructor I have ever had! She not only teaches you how to read music and play the piano; she is very knowledgeable and teaches you the history so you know how things came about and can appreciate the skills of playing the piano. Ms. Tanisha is very thorough and patient in teaching. She is also challenging and encourages us students to do our best and beyond. I feel I have grown very quickly with Ms. Tanisha in playing the piano. And I look forward to continuing and advancing with her help!

My daughter has been taking singing lessons at White Hall Academy with Tanisha for 2 years in April. my daughter has become an amazing singer. She has been chosen as lead singer and lead part in a musical Cinderella. She now sings with a world renown choir and is planning to pursue a future career in singing by auditioning for the Voice and attending a performing arts college. Our experience has been nothing but positive. Highly recommend Tanisha as a vocal coach!!
