Crystal H. Syracuse, NY

Subjects Taught

Banjo, Bass Guitar, Classical Guitar, Flamenco Guitar, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Ukulele

About Me

Crystal H. grew up in the small town of St. Clair, PA. Ms. H. discovered her love for music at the age of sixteen when she received her first guitar. She began taking lessons with Jim Juranis at Foltin's Music Center in the neighboring town of Pottsville, PA. This teenage hobby soon turned into a passion, which lead her to pursue a degree in music.

Ms. H. received a Bachelor of Music in Classical Guitar Performance from Mansfield University, where she studied with Dr. Matthew Slotkin. During her undergraduate career, Ms. H. sought musical exposure from various genres by performing in a Jazz Lab Band and in various Jazz Combos. She also performed in the pit for the productions of The Last Five Years and The Assassins at The Arcadia Theater in Wellsboro, PA. In addition, as an advocate for chamber music, she has performed with a violinist, a cellist, vocalists, flutists, and saxophonists.

Since she started studying classical guitar, Ms. H. took full advantage of any available learning opportunities. She has performed in masterclasses for Manuel Barrueco, Eduardo Fernandez, Nicholas Goluses, Bruce Holzman, Scott Tennant, Eliot Fisk, and many others. Her love for the guitar extended into the community by participating in various guitar festivals such as the Alexandria Guitar Festival, The 8th & 9th New York Guitar Seminars at Mannes, the Guitar Foundation of America Convention, and The Hartt Scool Guitar Festival.

Ms. H. began her graduate studies at The Hartt School, where she studied with Richard Provost. She recently relocated and is now pursuing a Master of Music in Classical Guitar Performance at Syracuse University, studying with Dr. Kenneth Meyer. In February of 2012, Ms. H. became a teacher of the Zaira Meneses Classical Guitar Program through Say Yes to Education, a nonprofit organization located in Syracuse, NY. She is enjoying bringing music to students who may not have had an opportunity to study otherwise. Ms. H. also teaches privately and is actively forming a guitar and vocal duet with Alexandria Mucci.

Christina F. Syracuse, NY

Subjects Taught

Broadway Singing, Choir, Ear Training, Jazz Voice, Music Performance, Singing, Vocal Training

About Me

I have been teaching privately since 2008. My teaching philosophy is centered around proper vocal technique in any musical genre. Although I feel that proper technique is the most important aspect of learning the art of singing, my vast performance experience allows me to teach my students how to sing any style of music in a healthy way.

Over the past several years I have been preparing my students for Broadway auditions, musical theater auditions, NYSSMA, and all county/state auditions. Voice lessons do not have to be centered around the rigorous audition process however, I also teach those who are just interested in taking lessons for the joy of making music.

I have experience teaching general music, band, and chorus at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. I also have experience directing a middle school show choir and middle school orchestra. I have been a mentor for the local high school vocal jazz ensemble and I co-direct a summer choir, comprised of currently enrolled high school students and alumni.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons consist of vocal warm ups in which we learn proper technique, and the preparation, practice, and study of various pieces of vocal repertoire. You will learn about the human body and how the voice works as your instrument. The genres of music you want to study are up to you. I teach it all. Jazz, Classical, Musical Theater, Pop, Folk, Country...the possibilities are endless! You don't have to be an expert in reading music, sight singing, or technique. You set the pace of your lessons, but I am there to push you towards excellence.

I prefer to teach in person, but with the use of Skype and FaceTime. I also teach lessons online!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard, Music

*** Travel Equipment ***
It is preferred that my students have a keyboard or piano in their home for lessons. I provide the music and other resources.

*** Specialties ***
I am a rounded vocalist and teacher. I specialize in the performance of a wide variety of musical styles. Regardless of the style of music we focus on, my students learn to use their voice in a healthy way.
