I just finished a series of online upright bass lessons with Dr. Norman. It's wonderful to have a lesson without toting the bass around town. Dr. Norman is impressive in skill and knowledge. There was nothing musically he didn't know, couldn't explain, or demonstrate on the bass. He has a keyboard at hand to play chords or emphasize a particular key, and he is proficient on that too. Dr. Norman is A++.

About Susan
My primary focus is teaching the best and most effective Vocal Techniques to students of all ages and backgrounds. I also teach Acoustic Guitar and finger picking. My teaching includes the Orff and Suzuki methods of music for Children. My primary focus is on teaching singing and I have been teaching beginning to advanced Voice, as well as beginning to intermediate acoustic guitar privately for over 25 years. My students perform in recitals at least twice a year. They also participate in local Broadway productions and Musicals for C.Y.T., Coast Kids, Moonlight Theatre, Escondido Center for The Arts, J Company, and Star Theatre Productions. Students also are involved with Classical, Choral, Gospel, Pop and Rock performing. Along with these venues, students perform for talent shows at their schools, sing in bands, and perform locally at thei
r favorite venues. Many of my students have gone on to sing professionally and I currently teach Artists with ongoing careers.

My motto is learn to sing the "Easy, Natural Way". I teach the very best techniques, so vocalizing is not strained or difficult. My main focus is on teaching good "placement" of the sound, using the best ways to secure breath support and control, as well as good stage presence. Dealing with stage fright is always addressed, whether the singer wants to sing just for themselves, or audition for Musical Theatre productions. Styles range from pop to rock and opera.
I teach students of ALL AGES and work with every style or genre of music. Having spearheaded the Music program at the local YMCA has been a special treat in my teaching career!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I teach using a piano for learning vocal exercises and good techniques. I also have an acoustic Guitar that I use to teach my students how to play and learn good finger picking and strumming techniques. Using a computer is always employed, to pull up songs on YouTube, so students can choose what they would like to work on. Karaoke versions are used as well, for further training purposes.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When I teach at a student's home, I bring my Guitar with me, if they're studying this instrument. It is helpful for a student to have a piano or keyboard for me to teach voice, but I do have a keyboard I can bring if none is available. Having a computer close by is very helpful, to get the most out of the lesson as is possible.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping people who have created possible "bad habits" in their singing techniques. "Placement" and breathing, or "support", are of key importance. When good techniques are used, just about anyone can learn to sing beautifully. I also work with all ages, having background with Children, as well as teens, middle age, and elderly vocalists. Singing is universal, so every ethnicity is included in my student roster. If someone wants to learn to play the acoustic Guitar, this is always a plus, to accompany ones-self, or to focus on the instrument on it's own. Singing and playing should be "easy" and this is the approach I take in teaching.

I saw Matt play live a few years ago and instantly contacted him for lessons. He's an amazing teacher! I've never had any desire to work with anyone else. After a few years, I've never had a question that he hasn't had a solid answer to.

I took lessons with Matt for about 2 years. I think I gained a solid enough foundation to explore just about any new technique or style on my own. He's an excellent teacher, great player, and an all around nice guy.

About Greg
I'm a local freelance musician living in Phoenix, AZ with a passion for many different types of music! I have a B.M. from Boston University and a M.M. from the UNC School of the Arts, both in Music Performance specializing in Trumpet. Though Trumpet is my primary instrument, I play and teach in a wide variety of musical disciplines, including Trumpet, French Horn, Piano, Music Production/Recording, Music Theory, and Ear Training. I've released one album of original music under the moniker Hands Up Eyes Shut, and I play in several groups in the Phoenix area-a classical brass quintet, two jazz combos, and an indie rock group, as well as substitute work with the Phoenix and Tucson Symphonies from time to time. On the teaching side of things, I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years, maintain a healthy studio, and also teach s
everal music courses as an adjunct faculty member in the Maricopa Community College system. I've been fortunate to have trumpet students who have been accepted as music performance majors at both Arizona State University (on scholarship) and Northwestern University (the best trumpet studio in the country for many years) if you're thinking of making music a career, and I'm also available for audition coaching for any instrument if you're looking to brush up on your All Region or All State audition material!

About Jake
As a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, I have been playing guitar since the 4th grade. I remember taking lessons from several teachers in the beggining, however it wasn't until a certain teacher that things started to click, and all of a sudden I was inspired to become the guitar player I am today. I strive to inspire my students and make music fun, challenging and exciting for my students.

Whether you are an absolute begginer with no experience holding a guitar, or an advanced student lookin to explore advanced harmonic and rhythmic concepts, I have what it takes to teach you. I have experience teaching young children teenagers and adults through various music schools.

I am also a working musician and perform with several bands in the genres of R&B/Gospel, Jazz, Singer Somgwriter and Solo Guitar. I maintain a bus
y schedule as a performer, bandleader, and sideman however I have found teaching to be one of the most rewarding things I do musically. When a student succeeds and I see the light bulb go off in his/her head I become excited. Music is truly one of he greatest gifts in mankind and I have great joy in passing along knowledge to my students.

About ryan
Hi, my name is Ryan and I would love to teach you how to play guitar. I've been playing for over 10 years and have been gigging for a little less than that in my band. Over the years I have gained a lot of experience performing on stage and teaching to people of all ages. If you want to shred, jam, or rock out then look no further. I okay all styles of music and pride myself in building a fun and educational curriculum based solely on you or others who have had similar interests as you. This means if you have a question about guitar or music in general, 9 times out of 10 I can answer it. The remaining tenth is either a well kept secret, or something that is left to be found. So if you're ready to start your journey or just need a guide to help you on your way, let's​ go!

Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!

About Rosella
I am passionate about the art of singing. As a mezzo-soprano, I perform with several regional orchestras, chamber groups, and opera companies. I trained with multiple opera companies throughout the United States, and I earned my Masters of Music from Westminster Choir College and my Doctorate of Music Arts from LSU.
I am equally passionate about teaching voice. I have been teaching at the college level for over eight years, but have also taught students from as young as 10 up into their seventies. My students have competed at the state and regional level of the National Association of Teachers of Singing, and several of them were finalists or even won first place in their categories. Several of my former students have earned scholarships to colleges and graduate schools in voice.
My approach to teaching voice will help you build confide
nce as you explore the natural voice you were born with and grow your ability to healthily adapt that voice to express the music you want to sing.
