About Lynzi
Hello everyone! I've been singing since the age of 3 and performing since the age of 6. I am not only an experienced music teacher with a passion for music and teaching, but an experienced performer, and songwriter. I started performing at a young age with the Columbia School of Theatrical Arts, and as I grew older I studied different techniques such as speech level singing, classical, and even techniques from Brett Manning, one of the most amazing vocal coaches today who teaches artists such as Haley Williams from Paramore. I have experience performing many styles of music, and also was a voi
ce major in college. The students I teach will benefit from my contemporary techniques, and can learn to sing in almost any style of music they choose.

*** Lesson Details ***
Do you want to learn how to sing your favorite song just like the artist? I can teach you the techniques! Or how about how to make a cover song your own based off of your own unique voice? We can work together to find, develop, and build the amazing qualities that you have in your voice. I will not only work on aspects of what you would like to improve on with your voice personally, but I will make an individual plan for you that will dramatically improve your voice! I will work with you individually to strengthen any weakness you may have in a fun environment. I am fun, encouraging and motivating! When asking students to do any vocal exercises, I will explain what the certain exercise does to improve your voice so that you can have the knowledge you need to be a good vocalist, and not just know how to sing properly. You will learn many things in lessons and what I teach you will vary on where you are vocally.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard, CD, Boom box, music sheets, etc. Students do not need to provide anything.

*** Specialties ***
Speech level singing method, classical techniques, singing success, various genres including: pop, blues, contemporary, and musical theatre. I utilize the different techniques I have learned through proper classical training, but mix it with contemporary methods I have learned from speech level singing methods.

About Candace
Arguably one of the most dynamic emerging vocal producers and songwriters to penetrate the music industry, “Candy” offers a brave, but fresh take on life through song. A native of Washington D.C., Candy studied and performed with the esteemed Washington Performing Arts Society for 7 years and graduated from Howard University with a Bachelors in Fine Arts. She has also trained and studied at the home of Seth Riggs in Los Angeles, which afforded her years of solid experience with Speech Level Singing (SLS), a widely-popular technique created by Seth Riggs and used to coach clients like Michael J
ackson, Beyonce', and many others. She's advanced through over 4 years of professional training and performing in Theatre Arts and has also crafted an acclaimed approach to Broadway music and acting for the stage.

Candy is practiced and has worked alongside some of the industry's best as a writer, studio coach and vocal producer. Her clientele includes a growing list of popular performers and producers across the national borders. With a range that spans several genres, it is increasingly easy to see why her buzz is continually growing. Candy has already worked with some of the most respected names in music including Rich Harrison (Crazy In Love-Beyonce, No One Gonna Love You-Jennifer Hudson), Jazze Pha (Ciara, Cee Lo, T.I.), and James “Big Jim” Wright (Yolanda Adams, Chaka Khan, Mariah Carey, Michael Jackson), having also caught the attention of Missy Elliot and Swizz Beats. The list continues to expand. A 4.0 graduate and well-versed professional, her value is irrefutable.

*** Lesson Details ***
My approach is student specific. Everyone does not respond to the same teaching style. I will assess where you are vs where you aspire to be and together, we will formulate a plan to get you there. In 3-6 months, the biggest thing you will walk away with is the confidence to explore and perform to your greatest potential, and the understanding that it will grow with you as you do. I am offering methods I've benefited from and acquired across multiple genres of music, each having heavily impacted the other. I am also an advocate for hands on learning! Let's dig in and get to it! Let's also record your lessons on my Protools set up so that you forever have a point of reference.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room set up.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to have the ability to take notes in a way that works for them (hand-held recorder, pen & paper/laptop, etc). They should also provide material they would like to focus on or I can provide as well, once discussed.

*** Specialties ***
I gear toward a focus of bringing the student into the moment/lesson and the artist into the performance. It is my goal in every aspect of teaching to help my students find truths to which they can relate and live honestly within. Finding a relatable link between them and the content of the lesson has made all the difference in my learning and teaching experience. I believe honing in on that honesty to be the key to an exceptionally developed craft. My style is defined by the ability to experience each new moment in the now, as you are. In doing so, you open yourself up and become readily available to internalize the nuances of your learning process.

Fantastic Teacher!!

Candace is amazing! I came to her wanting to learn the fundamentals of singing and she has gone far beyond my expectations. She is patient, and truly believes in me even when I feel as if I cannot do it. She is the best teacher I have ever come across and I couldn't ask for anything better!

She is amazing!

I came into this searching for somebody whom I thought could get me to the skill level that I so desperately desire. So far Candice has done a phenomenal job of laying the foundation of my technique in a way that I am having fun and seeing results. After 4 weeks of lessons I could not imagine working with anyone else!

I am in my second year of homeschooling and had prayed specifically for a male teacher to come alongside us and assist in our homeschooling adventure. Although my son, who is six, is not having any difficulties at the moment, homeschooling is still new to me and I was hoping I could find someone who would keep us accountable and help fill in any gaps in my son's schooling. We have found Maurice to be just what we needed. He is engaging and encouraging and has been helpful in sharing strategies and teaching techniques that foster comprehensive learning and not merely memorization.

My son has had tutors in the past, and they simply read with him, which is not what he needed. Maurice actually is teaching him in a way he can understand, and is very patient. My son is no longer on his IEP and is grade-level, thanks to Maurice.

About Larry
***My Takelessons Blog Posts:***
http://takelessons.com/blog/acting-in-famous-Shakespeare-plays
http://takelessons.com/blog/how-to-have-stage-presence

My name is Larry, and I was born and raised in Chicago and now call the Phoenix, AZ metro area home. I have two Master's Degrees in Education (Higher Ed. and Teaching and Learning with Technology), and am working on another M.A. currently in History. I have a tutoring business of my own, working with excellent education partners like Takelessons.

My tutoring business is geared towards middle, high school,and college students, and my sp
ecialization is geared in three arenas:

1) The Humanities: History (U.S., European, Oriental, and World), English, Literature (with a special passion for all things Shakespeare), and Social Studies (including American Government and Political Science).

2) Papers: Research papers (and how to do the research for them), essays, creative writing - everything to do with papers you ever wanted to know.

3) Drama (the Theatre kind of drama, not life drama): Acting, directing, staging, analysis, including the aforementioned Will Shakespeare.

***My Promise to You***

I will treat you like an individual - that means that we'll find out how YOU learn best, and we'll work that way. I don't teach "to the test", I don't teach memorization. I teach by asking and answering questions, as well as providing information.

***My Expectation of You***

That you will come with an open mind, come with questions, come with not just the willingness to learn and have fun, but the expectation to do both.

***Lesson Details***

*The Humanities*
The reason so many people go screaming into the night when confronted with lessons in things like history, or government, or English for that matter, are all the names and dates to memorize. I don't teach that way. We begin with things you want (or need) to know. From there, we cover how those things affected other things, It's a huge world out there, and how we got here from where we started is a wonderful and complicated trip. History doesn't happen in a vacuum, and we learn who we are by knowing where we come from.

*Papers*
Obviously I won't write your paper for you, but I will show you how and where to start your research (and how to sort it as well). I will also proof-read for grammar and/or organizational errors and show you how to structure it in general terms.

*Drama*
I have acted, I have directed. From the community to professional levels. We will talk about character creation, about staging, about working with your director as well as your fellow actors. We will mostly brainstorm, and you will be able to experiment in vision as well as technique.

We have very lively discussions which are less like lectures and more like questions and answers. Since Larry is very knowledgeable, he is flexible in where we take our lessons. We've started with Classic Greek but we've also delved into other periods. This makes it quite enjoyable, since it's nice to be able to bounce around at times.
