Emily is GREAT!

Emily is a great voice teacher and Sage adores and admires her very much. Sage has learned so much from Emily and we are very happy with her services. Emily always provides timely and valuable feedback and Sage looks forward to her lessons each week. Emily should be commended for a job well done; we appreciate her and so does Sage.

What I DIDN'T Know

Emily is an awesome coach and instructor. Yes I said coach! A coach actually encourages you, and that is what she did for me. Anyway, as for the title, "What I DIDN'T Know", there were things in film auditions that I didn't know that would were actually sabotaging my chances for auditions. Emily worked on these real quick and fixed them up.Long story short, I had an audition yesterday, and using Emily's lessons's the casting director said, "Wow, that was actually really good"

I have been playing for 14 years and am versed in in many drumming styles including rock, funk, jazz, Afro-Cuban, and Brazilian. As a recording engineer I have recorded every genre from classical to metal. I cover everything from sound theory and physics to hands on application.

Beginning lessons involve the rudimentary study of rhythm and their application to drumming as a whole.

Cara R. Homestead, PA

About Cara

My name is Cara, a college graduate of Grove City College with a Bachelor's Degree in Music. I've played flute for 15 years and piano for 10. I've been teaching for 3 years, and I absolutely love it. I love music and I love teaching anyone who is interested to learn about it! From the basics to the notes on the staff, to the circle of fifths and complicated theory, i would love to teach all aspects of music. I understand that everyone has different tastes in music, so i love doing all different styles. Classical, Pop, Broadway, Oldies, you name it. If you're a beginner, or you've been playing for a few years, we can find where you are and get you started right away! I hope you will give me a chance :)
