About Laura
Music is definitely the universal language, and there isn't a genre I don't love; it's important to me that that aspect be brought to lessons, as well! From humble New Jersey beginnings to an opera career, I've seen the power of what music can do!

Whether it's opera, musical theater, folk, rock, or just public speaking, anything YOU love to do, I would love to teach you! Having taught all ages and levels, from first graders to adults, from someone who's never sung a note in his or her life to semi-professionals, I cater my lessons to what YOU as a student need and are interested in.

Lessons shouldn't be a chore - I like to foster an environment you look forward to being a part of! I also think that music, like any sport, is hard work, and takes seriously practice; even hobbies take concentration and application! I understand and can
work with many schedules and work loads, but I expect my students to put at least half the effort into their lessons that I do!

Laura is a wonderful voice instructor! You can tell that she is very knowledgeable about music and voice overall. She makes my lessons very fun, but also informative at the same time. They are not just technical lessons about how to sing. Laura incorporates different teaching styles to accommodate her students' way of learning, and also works with you on the style of music you prefer. The only thing I hope for more of out of my lessons is to have more time singing, but I am a beginner and Laura makes sure you strengthen your foundations first in order to support your voice!

Laura is absolutely fantastic! She will work with you on your singing voice from the ground up. As someone coming in with a bit of singing experience already, it is SO GREAT to revisit the basics, and to work with someone who is so invested in helping you find the healthiest version of your voice. I am looking forward to taking more lessons with her!

About Stephen
Want to belt like Beyonce, riff like the Weeknd, rock like Imagine Dragons? Broadway dreams? Movies?

Hi, I'm Stephen.

I'm a vocal trainer, acting coach, and songwriting teacher. My specialty is pop/rock, on camera, and helping songwriters find their voice, both lyrically and sonically.

Tap Into Your Artistry (TIYA) is the ultimate gym for singing, acting, and songwriting.

Discover the fastest and most efficient way to build, strengthen, and condition your voice. Simple, safe, systematic vocal exercises that embrace a Zen like approach with an athletic mentality.

I'm also an AEA and SAG-AFTRA actor and ASCAP songwriter and producer. If you want to learn more about acting in movies, performing on Broadway, writing your own songs, and developing show-biz career strategy, I help TIYA members every day achieve their artist
ic dreams.

MORE INFO:
I have been singing since I was 3, anything and everything from Michael Jackson to Elvis Presley to Luciano Pavarotti. Originally from Colorado, I studied music/theatre, as well as vocal pedagogy at The University of Colorado at Boulder, where I graduated with highest honors. I made my Broadway debut in "The Phantom of the Opera" at age 24. I also performed in "Chess in concert" as a featured rock tenor soloist at the New Amsterdam Theatre on Broadway with Josh Groban. I have understudied and performed lead roles in the first AEA National Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s "Whistle Down the Wind." Regionally, I have played many lead roles all over the United States in productions including "Les Miserables," "Miss Saigon," "The Wild Party," and "She Loves Me."

As an ASCAP recording artist, currently I am working in the studio with a full production team on my first pop/rock album. I also often sing on demos for producers and write songs for other artists in many different genres.

As a TV/Film actor, most recently I was on set with Marvel's TIARA 2 on Netflix. I have booked lead roles in 4 SAG-AFTRA short films, as well as the comedic lead in a SAG-AFTRA Web-series. I was called back for producers as a Series Regular for "The Knick," an episodic series produced and directed by Steven Soderbergh on Cinemax.

My audition prep will help you master your sides for any playing space; Broadway plays/musicals and especially on camera.

TIYA clients include (aspiring) Broadway performers, Film and TV actors, singer-songwriters, news anchors, dancers, comedians, CEO's all over the world, as well as karaoke enthusiasts, and songwriting hobbyists.

My TIYA members have performed on television in Smash, Glee, and venues around NYC ranging from The Underground, Le Poisson Rouge, Drom, Cornelia Street Cafe, Arlene’s Grocery, to the Broadway productions of Ghost, Sister Act, Evita, Wicked, West Side Story, South Pacific, The Phantom of the Opera, and Rent to name a few.

*** Lesson Details ***
We will always work on whatever you want.

For Singing, as a vocal technician/trainer I am like going to the gym for your voice. My exercises are safe, simple, and most importantly, I teach you how to practice correctly.

For ACTing, we can explore both the foundation itself with monologues and scenes, as well as the tricks of the trade mastering the camera frame and how to create memorable auditions for TV/Film.

For Songwriting, we can explore the fundamentals of both lyrics and music, as well as catchy hooks, production, and song structure.

You may use my time however you wish (Voice, Acting, Songwriting, or Artistic/Career guidance).

Most vocal sessions will usually be a combination of strengthening/ conditioning exercises, and then exploring/performing a song.

Most ACTing sessions will be theatre monologues, TV/Film sides and/or On camera auditioning craft.

Career consultations usually include how to get an agent, headshots, branding, and marketing to align your artistic dreams with a strategy for success.

About Basa
I am a keyboardist, percussionist, producer, and recording artist. I attended Brooklyn School For Music & Theatre and City-As-School graduating with course and internship based experience in drum-corps marching band, piano, music theory, and audio engineering.

I teach piano, percussion, and music production to individual or group students of all ages at beginner experience levels. I can teach students how to read/write music, to execute rudiments with the proper fulcrum, and to establish entrainment with other musicians in a band. Students can also learn and apply basic-advanced methods of music production using Logic Pro X and MASCHINE.

As a professional musician I have played in R&B, Funk, and Hip-Hop bands all over the tristate area and Los Angeles. I've performed with well known neo-soul duo, "OSHUN," as their keyboardist for e
vents curated by Redbull Soundselect, Afropunk, BRIC TV, etc. I currently play percussion and auxiliary keys for a fusion band led by entertainer Qaasim Middleton: finalist of American Idol Season 14, actor in nickelodeon's, "Naked Brothers Band," and netflix's, "The Get Down." For every artist I've performed with I've also produced instrumental tracks that have gone on to be used in commercial recordings, distribution, and live performance.

As a musician I intend on further developing my passion, skill, and technique for music through teaching and playing for others. Being a musician is without a doubt a path to pursue greatness as a human being. As my student you will learn the importance of communication, discipline, concentration, confidence, fun, humility, and creativity. Let's help each other become our best selves through our art!

Kate's wonderful talent for music is impressive and so is her teaching method.
I started off knowing basically nothing and had no sense of rhythm. Although I knew it was going to be challenging, I was determined to have fun while learning, no matter what - and picking Kate as my teacher was a very fortunate decision.
I am so glad that throughout the course of two months, I was able to learn how to play some of my favorite songs on the uke and also was gifted with precious tips and tricks to improve my practice in the long term!
Kate is patient, sweet and will amaze you with her skills - and you'll also be amazed by how much you can learn in one hour with her. I'd rate the classes with 10 stars if that was even possible :)

Thanks so much Kate!

Kate is fantastic!! She has such a warm, easygoing personality, and I was very comfortable having her in my home. She is extremely knowledgeable about the uke and was able to immediately recognize my strengths and weaknesses. I feel challenged, but not overwhelmed. I had so much fun and can't wait for next week's lesson!

About Cameron
I am a professionally trained percussionist, guitarist, and sound-engineer. I graduated from Fort Hays State University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Technology, and a Masters of Professional Studies in Music Performance.

I am great with young or beginning students. I tailor each lesson to fit the students interests, as well as give them a strong general music foundation to carry them through their musical endeavors! I have worked with many students in a variety of styles, including rock, finger-picking, jazz, song-writing and country.

I have been giving lessons to students of all ages in percussion, guitar, electric bass, and beginner piano for about 4 years. I taught one of the guitar studios at FHSU, as well as some percussion students as part of my graduate assistantship. I am passionate about helping students of al
l ages reach their musical goals and have fun while doing it!

I love to perform with other musicians! I have participated in many musical ensembles while at FHSU, including both jazz ensembles, both concert bands, marching band, pep band, both choirs, and the percussion ensemble. I have also been a wedding DJ for the past four years, and a radio station manager for the last two years. I sit in with a small jazz quartet when I am available and I frequently play with a country band around northeastern Kansas.

I truly love teaching one-on-one lessons. I especially love working with beginners so I can start them off on the right path!

I took bass lessons from Cameron through a college class. In just one semester (one lesson a week) I learned a years worth of music theory. Cameron explained it in a way that made sense. I learned a lot in the time taking lessons. Also became more confident in my playing because I learned about scales and many other aspects that help with playing around on the frets. Cameron is a great teacher and I would recommend to anyone!

Cameron is an amazing instructor. I started off taking drum classes from him as a part of his graduate work, and enjoyed the classes so much I decided to take them privately. Mr. Shoemaker has a good way of figuring out where people are at with their skill level and giving them goals and tips to help them improve. I consider it an honor to have taken classes from him.

About Alena
If you are looking for professional musician for piano lessons, we are the perfect match!

I am a professional pianist with substantial experience in teaching piano to students of different ages. I hold two Master's Degrees in Piano Performance: the first from Kharkiv National University of Arts in Ukraine and the second from Anton Rubinstein International Music Academy in Germany.

I previously performed as a solo pianist, played chamber music, and taught at a private music academy in Germany.

As an experienced piano teacher, I would say that it is always important to have a classical background no matter what kind/style of music you prefer to play (although it is not necessary to focus exclusively on the classics). No matter what your goals are, improving technique and understanding harmony and theory will help you succeed.

I strive t
o make the learning process interesting and enjoyable. I have been playing piano for over 20 years, and I strive to share my knowledge and passion with others so they can fall in love with music as well.

I look forward to hearing from you!
