Whether you are trying to find your true voice, brush up your vocal chords or just getting started, singing is my passion and I would love to help.

About Jenny
Private classes allow each person to learn at their pace. I love working with all ages of students, kids through adults. Each one bringing their experiences and love of learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe anyone can learn to play the piano or sing, but you must enjoy what you are doing. Once you have a basic knowledge of the instrument/notes you will be able to start choosing music that you enjoy playing/singing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I use a Roland Digital Piano to teach my lessons. I use programs on the computer to reinforce musical concepts learned.

*** Specialties ***
I like to use a variety of methods to teach depending on my students likes and abilities.

Specialize in singing rock 'n roll and Broadway as well as hip-hop or New Age music
I teach students how to be more confident with their vocals present themselves in a positive confident way and also how to hit those high notes and expand their range with their breath and technique

About Charles
I am an international recording artist and seasoned performer. I have been playing music since the early age of 8 yrs old. I have always been inspired by music and love to inspire others with music. Some of my accomplishments include putting an album out with Universal Records as a Nashville recording artist, having over 7 albums out internationally, and recording and playing with some of the biggest names in the music industry. I am a classically trained musician as well as an innovative and experienced teacher. I have been teaching for over 15 years and have seen many of my students go on to become top-notch performers themselves while pursuing successful careers in music. In addition to being a private music teacher, I have also taught at many schools in the valley including the Center for Educational Excellence School, Grand Canyon Pr
eparatory private charter school and the Arizona Music Academy. I teach all levels of guitar, bass, and drums and tailor every lesson to the individual student’s needs and personality. My annual recitals are live-performance concerts featuring bands and other performing groups formed from among my students along with solo performances. My students also perform regularly throughout the community and are successful in their musical endeavors at all ages. I teach a wide range of genres and styles from classical music, blues, jazz and rock to heavy metal with an emphasis on becoming A-Level lead guitar soloists and song writers. I teach songwriting skills, music theory, and have even helped many of my guitar students be able to sing better while learning their main instrument.

*** Lesson Details ***
I make my lessons fun and informative and have had many students stay with me for up to 7 years. I show you everything you will ever need to know about music theory but in a very useful applicable way. I teach popular songs from any artist and classics that have stood the test of time and show you how to become a great song writer of your own giving you an insider’s knowledge about how to perform and have the audience standing asking for more. No matter if you want to become a pro lead guitar player or just play to have fun I can show you how to sing and play the guitar or piano at the same time or singing songs from church as well as your favorite rock or pop songs with confidence.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just my own guitar and amp they need their own equipment.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, flamenco, rock, heavy metal guitar. I have also developed new classical guitar techniques that I call the "trem" stroke and the "harpeggio"

I've been a performing vocalist all my life, with formal training beginning in high school, continuing into college and into my career as a professional musician. I have "stage" experience (choral, broadway musicals, opera) AND experience in the "band" arena, performing vocals and/or bass guitar and guitar for rock, pop, R&B and jazz gigs.

*** Lesson Details ***
All of my lessons are customized to your needs, preferences and goals. No matter what instrument or skill level, I'll take you through the basics and help you build solid practicing fundamentals. I'll also help you develop your performance and, depending on how serious you'd like to get, I can also teach you to read music and learn music theory as well! I balance learning and technical skill with fun and self-expression.

I have a dedicated music room, stocked with guitars, basses, and practice amp, keyboard and co
mputers with recording software.

Having recently attained my MM: Vocal Pedagogy from ASU, I am now accepting new students at my home studio in Chandler!

With 16 years of experience as a singer and 8 years as a music educator, I am well-trained to safely teach all voices and most genres: including musical theatre, pop, rock, jazz, classical/opera, choral, and folk. Before moving to Chandler in 2016, I was a full-time musician in San Diego for 6 years, where I taught private voice & piano lessons, children’s group classes, and also ran summer camps and several choirs for adults & kids. I am committed to inspiring my students to explore and share their own love of music, regardless of age or prior musical experience.

pare choir & solo songs for upcoming concerts, gain entrance into college voice programs, learn how to "belt" properly without strain, or simply perfect their favorite karaoke songs!

I only work with students ages 12+ in my home studio because I believe that children under age 12 receive the most benefit by singing in a choir with their peers, rather than taking private lessons for their young, under-developed voices. Better instrument options for younger kids are piano, violin, or guitar, which require finger coordination and theory comprehension in order to sound good (singing just doesn't). I assign music theory homework to all my students, as being able to read music well is essential to becoming a well-rounded, independent musician (yes, singers are musicians, too!).

I also very much enjoy working with adults of all ages, and specialize in rehabilitating voices struggling from harmful vocal habits by finding & using their "resonant voice." I believe that a strong foundation in technique not only makes singing in any genre possible, but also ensures healthy singing habits for life!

d perform with ease.

Performance anxiety can be overcome. Using the tools that Ginni has developed, students relax, focus and enjoy their performing experience.

Reading music is important for pianists and singers. Ginni helps beginning through advanced students to more fully understand written music and quickly sight read it.

It’s important to perform songs that you enjoy. Students help choose supplemental songs that they love whether that be contemporary pop, traditional classical, Broadway, jazz, country or any other genre that they would like to learn.

Ginni’s piano and singing students increase their range, power, agility, control, confidence and expressiveness through technical exercises, scales, arpeggios, applying technique and lots of encouragement! Students grow the more that they share their talents. Students of Ginni’s are invited to participate in recitals, the Arizona Study Program and are guided through auditions, solo and ensemble performances.

Ginni uses the latest technology to help her students, whether by finding a song online for a student to listen to and learn from, transposing a piece on keyboard, improving the sound of an iphone song by plugging it into a speaker system or by using a mic to learn microphone technique.

A century old stand up piano may not be cutting edge technology but, Ginni’s sounds beautiful and her students enjoy playing it. Music is such a gift. So is participating in and watching the growth and progression of others.

Ginni asks her students to remember three things:
Try, Relax and Have Fun!

My 6 yr old son started taking lessons with Ginni about a month ago. He is a very active boy who has difficulty sitting still and focusing. Ginni is wonderful with him! She is very patient, kind, and understanding of children's specific challenges. She works with him while gently nudging him to stay on task. He actually really likes going to piano lessons and is always excited when 'piano day' rolls around. So hats off to Ginni for her skills in making learning music fun and enjoyable to an active little boy! I always wanted my son to learn an instrument (we are a family of musicians) but what I didn't realize is the process learning piano is helping him with needed skills in school: concentration, focus and discipline. I am very happy I chose Ginni.

Classical singing and musical theatre

About Dale
As a performer I have been playing for over fifteen years on the piano. I have received training at Vanguard University where my teacher's were graduates from Juilliard and Yale. I am now attending Arizona State University where I will be teaching music theory and receiving my Doctorate in Music Composition. I am a published choral composer, and have had my music premiered in the U.S. and Europe.

In August of 2012 I began teaching piano on a part-time basis. My teaching philosophy has always been to make sure the students understand why and not just how to perform something. I emphasize music theory along with piano lessons and expect the students to take the time to practice every week. I have taught children of all ages from 4 to 16 years old.

About Frances T.

Close

Singing, dancing, performing, artistic expression in any medium ... all are fantastic ways to share yourself with others, express your personality, offer something to the world, relieve stress, sleep better, find the person of your dreams.

Singing should be fun, exciting, interesting. Sure there will be days where you're frustrated or irritated or just plain don't want to do anything and I understand those days.

About Frances
Hullo! I'm Frances and I've been teaching private voice lessons since 2008. In the past my students have been cast in roles in high school and community theater, they have participated in Regional Choir, and auditioned successfully for collegiate music programs.

I received my training at Belmont University, graduating in 2008 with a degree in Classical Vocal Performance. After teaching privately and auditioning for a few years I realized I wanted to return to school so I could be better equipped to teach. I spent two years at ASU refining my own voice while experiencing new teaching techniques. I finished my advanced degree in May, 2016 and now have a Master of Music: Vocal Performance and Pedagogy.

I believe in a relaxed atmosphere for lessons and that if you're not having fun overall then something needs to change. Strengthening
the voice through proper, healthy technique will be challenging but should also be enjoyable.

I am also now offering private piano lessons which I've taught off and on since 2004. My own lessons spanned the four years between eight and twelve and then a year at Belmont University, where I passed piano proficiency as an entering freshman and was able to take privately with a professor trained at Julliard. My theory work from both my undergrad and graduate schooling will allow me to more adequately teach that side of piano performance and I am excited to add piano lessons to what I offer.

Frances trained me for 5 years in both Broadway voice and Classical voice. She adapted her teaching to work with my strengths and weaknesses and knew exactly what I needed whether I was singing a piece for church or a production that I was in. In addition to adapting her teaching style she also always knew which songs were appropriate for my voice style and which songs I should learn in order to push myself and grow. Not only does she know her stuff but lessons are full of laughter and they are one of the most enjoyable parts of learning to sing.

Giving Singing Lessons is one of the most rewarding things to do! I love helping people cultivate their talent and bringing out the best in them! I cover a variety of vocal styles and most probably your favorite one too! There's no limit to how far you can go with singing! I play guitar so you can learn while singing along to your favorite songs! I also teach you how to improvise over songs and create your own vocal melodies/lines! I break down the theory of music in a simple to easy understand manner! Once you get going you'll be excited to learn something every week! There's lots to learn so let's get started!

About Drew
Hey whats up! My name is Drew and I'm an easy going Guitar Instructor.

My Approach:
I have a very melodic and visual approach to teaching the instrument which my students find very accessible to implement in their playing. I connect the Scales, Chords, and Theory all together to help students find an unlimited amount of creative options to have fun exploring and making their own music.

*What You Will Learn:*
A blend of Blues, Jazz, Funk, Rock, Finger-style, Reggae, Soloing, Ear training, Music Theory and RnB. I also teach students their favorite songs and how the song is constructed so they can truly make it their own. I teach both left and right hand technique/Alternate Picking(good for fast Metal/Rock Solos), Finger style(Folk, Jazz, Pop) Hybrid Picking and Tapping. I teach chord progressions and how they work which you can imp
lement in your song writing, playing and improvising(soloing) right away given on how much experience you have.

Specialize in Beginners:
If you're a beginner I recommend having a teacher such as my self to help you build great habits and techniques that will serve you for years and years.

Let's Have Fun:
Playing guitar helps you to connect to others, build friendships and have fun!

Lessons are $30/hr

I can travel to you with 5 dollar gas compensation, or, you can come to my home studio located by 67th ave and McDowell.

If you have general questions or are interested do not hesitate in replying to this post.

Looking forward to helping you become the musician you want to be!
