About Albino

Albino was born in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique, a country in southern Africa known for its rich musical and cultural heritage. Fueled by the resourcefulness and determination that have always characterized Mozambicans, he built his first guitar at 16 from a 5-liter can of oil, scrap wood, and

I recently began singing again after a year and was very unconfident in my voice and my ability to improve. Albino was the perfect instructor for someone like me because of his patience and positivity. He was able to point out issues with my singing technique or provide feedback in a very positive way, without seeming critical. Whenever I was confused about something, he would work with me non-stop until I understood. Albino inspires confidence in all his students, and I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Private Songwriting Teacher

I have extensive experience writing with some of the best songwriters on music row, and my songs have been featured in American Songwriter Magazine. I co-write and perform weekly in Nashville, and love to share what I have learned with developing songwriters!

If a student is interested in working on both their voice and their songwriting skills, lessons can be designed to incorporate both. I address form, lyric writing techniques, melody enhancement, and commercial appeal when teaching songwriting lessons. Students will learn the fundamentals and will bring in songs for critique!

Many of my students also study to learn basic guitar and/or piano with me, with an aim to accompany themselves on their original songs. We also have a home recording studio, which is available at a discounted cost to students interested in recording demos of their songs!

Private Songwriting Teacher

Why do some melodies stand the test of time and others don't? Why are some words better choices than others? How do people write good songs? It takes a lot of time, some guidance and mostly discipline. I will help you to stay on track and provide support based on personal industry experience.

A 30 or 60 minute lesson is a great add-on to a voice lesson and it grants the opportunity to learn how the two are connected. If done properly, the two can support one another, helping the singer and the writer share a both voices, the written and the physical voice.

About Jessica

Hi! My name is Jessica and I can't wait to help you find YOUR voice because YOUR voice is unlike anyone else's . No two people sound exactly the same; isn't that a beautiful thing? I truly believe it is, so much so that I've dedicated over two decades of my life to it. After double majoring at the

My goal in taking lessons was to get back to singing after a long hiatus of lessons and performing... to reclaim my love of singing and break through my insecurity. Jessica's warmth, humor and expertise helped me do just that. I learned new techniques and had a full on very emotional breath through right in her living room!

She made me feel safe, confident, and helped me learn about my unique voice as well as shared her expertise in proper breathing and gaining vocal control and increasing range.

In sum, Jessica is an incredible vocal coach and I'd definitely recommend her.
Sally
Jessica is an amazing teacher! She not only understands all the technicalities behind singing but she works to your strengths and helps you cultivate both your inner and outer voice! I felt very comfortable with her and even got emotional a few times as it was such a powerful experience to be able to be vulnerable and engage in something I love so much. Jessica is the perfect mix between professional and experiential where you'll learn skills but you will also have fun doing it. I highly recommend Jessica for your musical needs. I look forward to my future sessions!! It also helps she is incredibly talented! An all around win and positive experience :)!

Jessica is an amazing teacher. I felt amazing after our lesson. Looking forward to future lessons.

As a composer myself it is my joy to help other students find their voices through composition. I've worked with many genres and through lessons I help students discover their own writing style. My guidance is both hands on and hands off so that the song written, in the end, is truly yours. I'll guide you through the basics and the steps but in the end it'll be up to you to truly create!

Chloe is one of the best teachers I have encountered relative to her knowledge, skills, understanding of how to train children and her desire to see her students excel. She is vested in her students. Thank you for the awesome job you do with my kids. I have seen remarkable progress in their singing since you started ( I can say that because I am also a classically trainer singer)

Chloe is amazing! I have taken music theory/ voice lessons from her for over a year now, and have learned so much! She helped me pass my choir class in school and advance in an after school choir. 100% recommend her skills! She definitely knows her stuff :)

I own a YouTube world record with my show and it called SONGS FROM A HEADBAND
I teach songwriting for students who want to have the best chance to make money from their songwriting. There are structures of songs that make money, and if the song is well composed in one of those structures, and pitched correctly, the song can make money for the life of the writer, plus 70 additional years after the writer passes on. The heirs of the writer receive royalties for 70 years.

"Paul is an excellent teacher. He was kind, patient and willing to work on whatever it was that our daughter wanted to work on. He not only taught her guitar, but helped with her writing and some recording aspects as well. She was a teenager and loved her time she spent with Paul. She has been very successful so far in her music career and it all started with a passionate music teacher."

We've definitely improved in all of the subjects she has taught us: Songwriting, Singing, Voice-over's, Acting and Piano. Fawn is very patient and understanding during lessons and is a very capable instructor who knows what she is teaching in music, the business and the arts.

"I was really nervous about my performance of an original pop-song for my concert coming up in school. Things weren't working out with my previous teacher and that's when I found Taylor! She guided me through pairing the music with my lyrics, but in a way that really made me feel confident in what I was making! Taylor is super fun and easy to work with and when we weren't writing... we were cracking dad jokes! XD I performed the song at my school concert and I couldn't have been happier with the result! I definitely recommend Taylor and want to work with her soon again :3"
