About Julie

I am passionate about Music and Music Education. It's rewarding for me to watch my students develop in their musical skill and enjoy making music more and more. My students range from the very young (4 years old) to school age children, to teens, and adults. My students benefit from my expertise in teaching Vocal and Piano music, my knowledge of Music Theory, and my encouraging teaching style. I have been involved in making music since I was a young child, and I have been teaching private students since I was a Music major at the University of Florida in 1982 when a fellow college student asked me to teach her voice lessons. I have a Music Education degree from the University of Florida; my major instrument was Voice, my minor was Piano. I taught as a public school music educator ...

Julie is the BEST!! I took lessons as a child, but had not taken any lessons in over 10 years when I first began lessons with Julie. Almost immediately she was able to help me recall everything I had learned when I was younger. Very knowledgeable and encouraging, makes each lesson a joy! Highly recommended for those who are serious about learning the piano (or anything else I'm sure!).

Great Motavator!!

Julie is our first experience with a piano teacher. She has been instructing my somewhat shy 6 year old for about 9 months now. She is amazing with my daughter. She is very encouraging and stays right on her level while pushing her to expand her knowledge in music. I couldn't be more pleased in our first experience. Julie even had my daughter performing in front of an audience just 4 months after her first lesson. A memory my child will have forever.

My lesson with Matthew was great. Even though I have experience with music he was able to help me out with small habits that I needed help breaking. Great teacher really well versed in different styles of music as well as small techniques which will help me build and become a better piano player. All around great experience for my first time taking a piano lesson. Thanks Matt!!!

Benjamin K. Chicago, IL

I have worked as a tutor for several years and taught a variety of subjects. My main goal is to equip every student with tools they need to be successful. I care more about comprehension and learning, than grades. I work with each student individual to develop a personalized plan of organization, motivation, and accountability.

About Benjamin

My expansive breadth of interests has led me through years of experience in the arts and natural sciences. I'm a voice instructor, math tutor, and biology teacher. Now, I'm pursuing a career in opera and vocal performance.

I have extensively studied vocal performance and opera for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have been in many operas and musical theater productions. I am currently performing in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dreamcoat at the Booth Tarkington Theatre. I was a finalist in the MasterWorks Festival concerto competition. I have studied other vocal genres, such as jazz and pop. I have administered vocal lessons to every voice type at all different levels. I use the appoggio technique of breathing and believe all singing should be ...

I have never had any interest in singing beyond that which I do in my car, but I do now!
I agreed to take a lesson from Ben purely to see what range of voice I had. I planned on taking only one lesson, simply for this reason. As Ben had me doing the exercises, I realized that I had quite a bit of potential I never even dreamed I would have. He unlocked things in my voice I never knew I had. I learnt so much from that one lesson and had such a truly fun time, I decided I would continue.
I have taken six lessons now and I see huge improvements in my singing. When I sing for fun in the car, I now know how to "tame" my voice, I now understand the mechanics of singing styles and I understand how to breathe properly.
Each lesson I learn something new and though I tend to sometimes forget proper technique, Ben is always patient with me and, in a clear and concise way, shows me what I am doing wrong. He has a very good way of explaining things and really tries to unlock all my potential. Every visit I walk away happy and excited and with a lighter step. I feel my confidence, in general, has increased through these lessons. I fully recommend Ben to anyone wanting to learn what they are capable of with their voice...I've learned everyone is capable of singing. I recommend even one lesson with Ben to learn some basics and see what your vocal range is...and from there, see if you don't want to continue :)

Benjamin has been exemplary since day one. He's clear and concise in his explanations, well thought-out with his criticism, and always supportive of my growth. His technique is wonderful, and I noticed improvement in my singing after one lesson. After a month of lessons, I've increased my range and my tone significantly. I would highly recommend him for anyone in the Indianapolis area looking to become a better singer, whether they're new to singing or a pro.

I approach history with focus on context, implication, and cause and effect, from a functionalist perspective.

About Lourdes

I have been tutoring and teaching for twenty years for private students as well as at academic institutions (University of Arizona, Southern Mississippi, Phoenix, Capella, and Pima and Gulf Coast Community Colleges.

Lourdes was my singing coach for well over two years. With her, I not only learned how to sing but also a great deal about music, writing, philosophy and more. When I first started taking lessons with her, I had only wanted to sing. However, through working with her I was convinced to set my bar much higher. After working with her on the basics, I decided to go back to school to study music. With her continued tutelage and advice throughout this endeavor I have been able to not only meet expectations in an entirely new field but achieve notable academic success. Thanks in large part to her support, I am now gearing up to go to grad school and have been offered a GTA position with The University of Arizona's School of music. With Lourdes, I got so much more than just a voice coach. I ended up meeting a vibrant and brilliant individual who could help refine not only my musical abilities, but also my academic and professional skills. In whatever domain you intend to seek Lourdes' services, you will be pleasantly surprised to find yourself sitting with a true expert.

What I found the greatest part of her services was her continued focus on excellence. Strangely, this became the most challenging aspect of our work together as well. Lourdes encouraged me to push the envelope in directions I had never expected, but now the world seems like a place full of opportunity. My work with her can best be described as a crucible, from which I emerged far more capable and well-rounded than I had thought possible. If you're looking for more than just another tutor or coach, I can recommend no individual more motivating, energetic, capable and all around excellent than Lourdes C.

About History

History is one of those subjects kids take in school that they either really love, or they really dislike. If your child falls into the latter category, it might simply be that he or she struggles with memorizing facts, figures and historical events. It could be that the subject seems to be a little bit boring. In any case, making sure your child has a good grasp of history is important. If your son or daughter seems to be having a difficult time with history in school, it might be time to look into history tutoring.

The Benefits Of History Tutoring

Our tutors work with your child one-on-one to help them to retain the information they're learning in their classes. Our history tutoring services can make your child's least-favorite subject come alive for them, ...
