About George

Hi, my name is George. I am available to teach electric or acoustic guitar and bass either at my place or yours.

I have played both electric and acoustic guitar for 18+ now and attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA where I played with many talented individuals and learned from some of the best teachers.

Along the way I kept my bass guitar on my side and became proficient in the instrument as well.

I love playing several styles and my favorites are classic rock, hard rock, and blues.

I have taught guitar before but I found my knack for teaching by instructing Brazilian jiu-jitsu, another one of my hobbies.

I would love to teach guitar again not just because of the new knowledge I’ve attained but I just like it and learned I know how to be in tune with what a student needs at the moment.

George was so patient with me. I knew absolutely nothing about playing guitar and I learned exactly what I needed. He gave me the confidence I needed to learn the guitar.George is an amazing guitar player and I feel fortunate to have him as my instructor. I loved my lesson and can't wait for the next.

About Jamie

Soprano Jamie Balter most recently received recognition by both The American Prize in Voice and New York Lyric Opera Theatre Competition for her performance of works by Strauss, Mozart, and Wagner. A native of Baltimore, Ms. Balter earned her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Miami’s Frost School of Music and is currently pursuing a Master of Music degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Alabama under where she is a student of Dr. Paul Houghtaling. As a member of the University of Alabama Opera Theatre, Ms. Balter will sing the role of The Nurse in Philip Seward's Juliet in the 2019/20 season. In the 2018/19 season, Ms. Balter sang the roles of Consuelo in West Side Story and Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus. During the 2017/18 season, Ms. Balter appeared as a guest artist in Visions of Dreams, where she

performed selections by Duparc, Schubert, Mozart, and Lehár. In July 2017, she made her role debut as Donna Anna in Mozart's Don Giovanni at the Centre for Opera Studies in Italy. During the 2015/16 season, Ms. Balter returned to the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival as Marcellina in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, where she also covered Countess Almaviva under the baton of Maestro James Richman. In addition, she appeared as La Chatte/L’Écureuil in Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortilèges. Previously, Ms. Balter joined the roster of Russian Opera Workshop, where she covered Zemfira in Rachmaninoff’s Aleko and the title role in an abridged version of Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet. Balter began the 2016 season as a guest artist in From Heidelberg to Hanover, where she performed Strauss’ Four Last Songs in addition to selections from Lohengrin, Der Freischütz, and Tannhäuser with Lyric Opera Baltimore Artistic Director, James Harp. Highlights of the 2014/15 season included Second Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte with the Hawaii Performing Arts Festival, Alice (cover) in Verdi’s Falstaff with Harrower Opera Workshop, and An Evening of Opera & Song with the McDonogh Guest Artist Series. 

Jamie Balter maintains a private voice studio in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, previously having studios in Springfield, Illinois and Miami and Tallahassee, Florida. She has previously served as the head of the voice program at The Music Factory in Springfield, Illinois and served on the faculty at The Stubbs' Music Center in Tallahassee, Florida.  This fall, Ms. Balter will be teaching a masterclass as part of a series at McDonogh School in Owings Mills, Maryland titled An Artist Works: Tools of the Trade where she will discuss vocal technique, the key elements to having a successful audition, and how to make a website and a résumé.  

Teaching Philosophy:
Singing is a process and a journey and every singer’s journey is different.  My goal as a vocal pedagogue is to create a positive environment in my studio where my students can reach all of the goals that they set out to achieve.  In addition, it is important for my students to feel a warm, welcoming atmosphere, where they can make mistakes, take big risks, and ask questions.  The art of singing is a whole-body experience and it is essential for students to train and practice like an athlete would train for an Olympic event.  I encourage my students to do some sort of physical activity that has an emphasis on the abdominal muscles (i.e. yoga, pilates, tai chi, weight routine), so that they feel what it is like to use the whole body as well as strengthen their core muscles, which directly relates to “appoggio” or breath support.  I teach my students to use their entire body when they sing.  I believe that students should practice with physicality gestures, so they can get connected to their whole body and feel a strong gravitational center.  As a vocal pedagogue, I foster a healthy vocal technique and I believe that it is necessary for students to understand how the muscles work for inhalation and exhalation.  In addition, I believe that it is important for students to have kinesthetic awareness of the process of singing.  After a student has mastered the basic understanding of alignment, the body, and breathing, I then focus on phonation and having a clean onset after the inhalation.  Singing is all muscle coordination, so careful practice and patience is needed.  The process cannot be rushed.  Students in my studio have a solid foundation, which can be applied to any style of music that they wish to sing.  Every student has different needs and it is crucial to cater each lesson to the particular student.

Jamie's approachable and friendly personality is reflected in her teaching style - she is not afraid to have you try various unconventional techniques that turn out to be super effective and fun! In the year I've been taking lessons with her, my breath support, technique, and vocal range have all improved significantly - so much so that a high note that I found strenuous a year ago is now almost within my comfort range! She is very receptive to different styles of music, and her suggestions are always challenging, fun, and geared towards developing your voice.

Jamie is a fantastic voice teacher. She is extremely patient and encouraging with me as a beginner. I started with hardly any experience at all, and my singing has already improved significantly after only 8 weeks of lessons. She helped me with song choice and voice repertoire, but is also open to my suggestions. I can highly recommend her for anyone who has been thinking about voice lessons, but has not had the courage to start, even at an older age. Just give it a try!

Jamie is a great teacher. She helped me with my role for Ariel in the Little Mermaid. Not just the singing but also helped with staging and acting song out. shecheered me on and made me feel better about my voice. she is an amazing teacher.

My daughters anxiety was high the first day of highschool for band. The students were seasoned and Lauryn had not practiced in months. Chloe eased Lauryn’s nerves and gave her the confidence she needed in just the 1st lesson! She’s awesome!

You will never regret having voice lessons with a true professional. I've performed and taught across the US, Europe, and Australia. As a singer/stage director I've produced over fifty cabaret shows, musicals and operas.

With years of university and community teaching experience, I am a member of National Association of Teachers of Singing, a vetting organization for teachers, which provides competition platforms for young singers. I have been awarded grants by the Alabama Council for the Arts and the Lowder Foundation. Though still an active performer in jazz and other genres, I love teaching and am c

ommitted to offering my students what music can do for our world. I am Diane M. and a Google search of my name will connect you to tracks, videos and much more history about my varied and wonderful life in the Arts! NOTE: There are performance opportunities available through study in my private studio. Ask me about them!

It is a pleasure to provide a recommendation for Diane McNaron and her studio. My daughter has been taking private lessons for more than three years and we have been exceptionally pleased with the results. Ms. McNaron’s extensive background and experience in a wide variety of musical genres allows her to customize lessons around the student’s vocal strengths and interests rather than force a cookie cutter approach. Ms. McNaron has nurtured her talent in a positive, professional manner and I highly recommend her for those looking to improve, learn, or simply polish their current vocal skill set. You will not be disappointed.

"Summer Individualized each lesson for my son, daughter, and myself!"
Shane
"To start with, Henri is fun to be around, DO NOT underestimate this. I have had the strict authoritarian and the the wallflower and in both cases, I end
ed up not showing up so often than I just quit. It took me a few times of going to my lesson to realize what it was that made this time so different, and it is quite simply that I like being there for more than just the lesson.
In terms of his lesson quality and knowledge of the subject, I can only speak to his guitar knowledge. I guess before I begin, I should say that I am a beginner, and spend most of my time in life doing the things I have to do rather than the things I want to do. (kids) Anyhow, once again, Henri hit the mark. He asked me my goals and then challenged me to get there while not pressuring me too much to practice. (like I said, not a wallflower, and not an authoritarian) Some lessons were theory, scales, and or chords, and some were just me learning a song, which is essentially the fun way of learning chords and picking techniques.
At the end of the day, the entire experience has exceeded my expectations, and while my practice between lessons is certainly lacking, I am making serious progress. One fine day, I will play that coffee house and my decent singing and average guitar will fill the air and with any luck will only turn heads in a good way!"

"This was our first lesson. Qixin (Kiki) interacted with my child well. She communicated prior to the lesson and has made herself available for questions
afterwards. The worked on vocal warm ups, establishing range, music theory, breath/breathing and then singing songs and coaching on ways to improve."
