Excellence!

Matt La Von is the epitome of a great teacher. He is patient, allowing you to understand things on your own time. His instruction is clear and easy to understand and his knowledge of music seems to be endless. Above all else he is an accomplished musician and I trust that under his watchful eye I will be able to improve and refine my own abilities.

Excellent!

Two months of lessons have proven very productive. I have seen great improvement in my daugher's abilities and confidence. Barbee is mild in her ways yet tenacious; always pushing to the next level. I like that I am able to sit through the lesson. The classes run on schedule. Barbee is responsive to calls/texts and is flexible with schedule changes.

Briana S. New York, NY

About Briana

As a voice teacher, I draw on my experience as a professional opera singer and actor, my teaching background in various areas (music, theatre, yoga, fitness, literature, etc.), and my training in classical singing, musical theater, acting, and various methods of body work. I strive to create an environment of mutual respect that is fun and safe, where students can take risks, learn to challenge themselves productively, and find increased joy and freedom in expression. Self-awareness/body-awareness, relaxation, and nurturing of individuality are emphasized above all.

My teaching philosophies and techniques draw primarily from my study of movement and mindfulness through disciplines such as yoga, and especially the Feldenkrais Method, "a remarkable approach to human movement, ...

In what is surely a testament to her teaching ability, Briana's passions for music and learning - independently or in combination - are infectious. Briana understands the importance of treating and training the complete singer, addressing both the student's both physical/technical and personal/artistic capacities. She is versatile, open-minded, empathetic, and always delightful. I am honored to be her colleague and happy to recommend her.

Briana is an excellent and inspiring teacher to work with. In my experience, she brings a sense of excitement to the subject of singing that is contagious and motivated me to put my best foot forward not just in our meetings, but also in my practicing at home. Beyond repertoire and technique, her expertise extends into the physical and emotional aspects of singing. She is incredibly sensitive to where the student is coming from, and is able to meet him/her at that level. The ideas she shared have stuck with me and continue to help me as I develop further.

I've known Christian for a few years. We went to school together and have done a decent amount of playing together. He's very professional, talented, and knows what he's doing. Hes a top rated teacher and player. Anyone studying with him will learn a lot from him. Very highly recommended.

My 11 year-old son is taking beginner tuba lessons with Christian. He was getting very frustrated in band but even after just a few lessons has improved significantly and is much more confident during band practice. Christian has shown a lot of patience with him and encourages him to progress rather than hang out and play what he is already comfortable with.

And as a mom, I LOVE Skype lessons. I was a little worried that the lack of 'hands-on' could be an issue but it is not at all. We started with just 5 lessons, but I anticipate many more:)

I had my first lesson on Saturday the 13th, I was in a lot of doubt about taking lessons on line. I was not setup for it all the way my lab top was not putting out no sound. I was saying to myself here we go half of my lesson spent on fixing mechanical problems, but that was not the case. Christian figured it out with no problem and before you knew it I was into my first lesson. Christian was great we went over some different things and I was playing again. It felt really good to be playing notes with someone there to critique your performance good or bad. My goa is to get better each week. Thanks Christain
