Ryan H. Cleveland, OH

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing

About Me

I began singing when I was seven in a school choir. After that, I joined a boy choir in Florida that allowed me to travel all over the United States and Europe, exposing me to many different genres of music. When I entered college, I decided to start training as an opera singer. Since then, I have gained a Bachelor of Arts in Music with a Minor in Theater Arts from the University of Miami (FL) and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the Cleveland Institute of Music. I have been fortunate to perform extensively and have become passionate about performing. Having recently graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Music, I am dedicated to building a studio in the Cleveland area.

*** Lesson Details ***
Learning to sing should be fun and exciting! It's a personal talent that I love and enjoy and am excited to share that with my students. I teach a classical technique focusing on breath, posture and a natural, healthy sound. From this technique, anyone can sing any genre of music healthily and for a long time. If you want to audition for some big part/company or if you just want to beat your friends in a karaoke competition I'll be happy to help! Piano students will be using technique books, and once a grasp of the fundamentals has been gained, the next step is to work on some basic repertoire of your choice. Learning technique is essential but of no use unless it's applied to music. 

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private studio in a comfortable common area with great acoustics in my home. A keyboard, music, internet access and street parking are all available. I recommend recording lessons but it is not required.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard and some music. If you want to record your lessons I encourage it.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing technique which is the basis for any genre of singing, basic piano technique and classical music theory.

About Me

I've been playing guitar and singing professionally for about 20 years. As a family man and father of two, I also I earn my living and support my family with music. I have a very student-driven teaching style, work with students of all ages, with focus on helping the student achieve his or her individual goals, small or large. I try to keep the lessons fun but focused at the same time.

I bring a balanced and personalized teaching style to my lessons, based on a well rounded education and wide range of real-world life experience. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts and have performance experience on many different fronts, from local rock cover bands to Top 40, from acoustic soloist to fronting a nationally touring Metallica tribute.

I come from a musical family - my father is also a pro musician. The biggest thing I've learned as a teacher of guitar, bass and voice is teaching the instrument has only made me a bigger student. The learning process never ends and that is one of the great things about music.

No matter where you are with the instrument - a beginner picking it up for the first time, or a seasoned pro of 10 years that just needs help "putting it together," I believe I can help you to get wherever you want to go.

Regarding availability - make sure to inquire if you don't see a time open that suits you - I am flexible. I perform 4-6 times a week and teach full time. Flex lessons tend to work very well.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method is very practical and customized to every individual. I do not believe that you can use the same style with every student because everyone learns differently. With any instrument I teach, I usually approach things from a three-part method, technique, theory, and application.

Examples of technique:
Beginners :
Guitar - how to hold a pick, hand placement on the neck, how to palm mute, amp settings to achieve different tones, etc.
Bass - right/left hand coordination, proper right (or left) hand technique for fingerstyle playing.
Vocal - resetting the body and preparing it for singing, proper breathing technique, vocal warmups, etc.
Advanced:
Guitar - sweep picking, fingerstyle, hybrid picking,etc.
Bass - pop/slap method, picking, harmonics, etc.
Vocal - vocal warmup routine / stretching, how to achieve dynamic range, extend your range, control and power, pitch control

Examples of theory:
Beginners:
Guitar - knowing what note you are playing on the guitar, names of chords and different ways to grab them, finding the same notes in different places on the neck.
Bass - similar to guitar.
Vocal - relating notes you are hitting with your voice to a guitar or piano; intermediate ear training.

Advanced:
Guitar - Chord building, scales and improvisation, arpeggio shapes and application to song structure.
Bass - Chord theory learning, key building, scales and application.
Vocal - how to find harmony, key building, study of how vocal lines relate to chord patterns, improvisational technique.

Application:

Beginner:
Guitar - finding three favorite groups and or songs of the student and setting achievable goals to play music that they enjoy. Depending on the level of the student, just like Guitar Hero, there is usually an 'easy' way to play a song which will sound very close - and an 'expert' way, or album accurate way to play the song. Again, this approach is customized to where the student is and the difficulty of material they want to learn.
Bass - similar to guitar
Voice - singing songs by the student's favorite artist.

Advanced:
Guitar -This is where the customizable approach comes in. Everything ties together here. A student, for example that wants to learn a lead from a Stevie Ray Vaughn or Metallica tune may some of the skills required to play it, but may have to work on bends or vibrato. This is really where everything comes together.
Bass: Teaching not only the exact bass lines in student chosen songs, but tying together the theory of why that player chose the lines they did.
Voice: Instruction of where the voice fits into the mix of range, power and personality.

I also do hybrid lessons (guitar/voice, bass/voice, guitar/bass etc).

After 3-6 months, as long as the student is practicing, they should be able to play/sing some material they chose, have a basic understanding how the neck of a guitar/bass is set up or for vocal, be comfortable with knowing how their vocal mechanism works and have better control/command of their tool. All this depends on if the student is an absolute beginner of has been playing/singing for a few years.

As far as materials I ask students of ANY instruments I teach to bring a HARD cover binder with about 30 sheets of looseleaf in it. With every lesson, I enter the date into the binder and the student will walk away from the lesson with 3-5 very achievable goals, which will be entered into their binder.

For guitar/bass students: a CHROMATIC tuner & metronome. Korg and Boss make some nice units that combine these features into one device.

Books:
Guitar
For young students - Mel Bay Children's Guitar Method 1 & 2
For older students - Mel Bay Mastering the Guitar 1A
Also highly recommended for ALL guitar students - The Guitar Handbook by Ralph Denyer

Bass:
Mel Bay's Electric Bass Method 1 & 2
For slap style - Slap Bass Lines by Joe Santerre

Vocal:
No books besides the binder required

Alex B. Lakewood, OH

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

I have a bachelor's degree in music education from internationally recognized Baldwin-Wallace College. I have been playing and touring professionally for 9 years now with a band called Ward 9, and 4 years with a band called Dan Miraldi & The Albino Winos. I currently produce and run my own recording studio, and offer lessons as well. I am certified to teach all ages, any instrument, but focus mainly on bass, guitar, piano and vocals.

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me, students can expect to move just a little faster than their perceived pace. I say this because students feel like they can accomplish A, but I know they are capable of more! They can expect to be held accountable to correct technique and gain a fundamental base of music theory as well. If they put in the practice time, they can expect to achieve much success with me.

*** Studio Equipment ***
studio set up in attic seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
I am well-versed in Kodaly, Orff, and Dalcroze methodologies. I can teach classical or modern voice, and most styles of guitar.
