About Hillary

Hi, my name is Hillary and I am a singer, performer, and experienced voice teacher. I have over nine years of private and group voice teaching experience with students from ages 5-65, and over ten years of professional performing experience in the USA and internationally.

I specialize in all types of singing repertoire and styles, and tailor lessons to each student's individual needs. I graduated in 2014 with my Artist's Diploma in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy from the University of Miami, and previously graduated with my Master's of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Miami in May of 2013, where I was also a Graduate Teaching ...

She is wonderful!!
I was lucky enough to get Hillary as my vocal instructor and I loved it. She was very encouraging with my talent and pushed me forward to get better. It was also great to have the support of someone who is very knowledgeable of her craft and wanted to share that experience and let her students become better performers. She is what you want out of a vocal instructor because she is warm, kind, knowledgeable and knows exactly how to let your range expand.

Sucessful Artists come from Amazing Teachers

A year ago I didn't even think I could sing but through weekly classes with Hillary, I am now singing arias and broadway songs. I have also gained a confidence to perform that I would not have gotten from a teacher who does not invest time and effort to help their students grow. Hillary is the type of teacher that takes a vested interest in her students and their future, always there to lend support. She's a true teacher and I could not recommend her enough.

Laura S.

Asheville, NC

About Laura

Laura has taught throughout her musical career and loves nothing better than to introduce students of all ages to the magic of creating their own music. As a teacher, she focuses on a balance of inspiration and explanation. Inspiration: because if you don’t love your music, what’s the point? And technique: because if it’s easy to play and sounds good, you’ll keep coming back for more! Laura has a BA in Violin Performance and a minor in American Roots Music from Berklee School of Music, has taught privately for eight years, and plays in several bands. Laura has taken firsts in her age division at several fiddle contests, including the California and Nevada Oldtime Fiddle State Champions, Western Open Championships and top 5 in the National Oldtime Fiddle Championships. *** Studio ...

Laura is wonderful! She's totally inspired my daughter, who now walks around the house playing all our favorite fiddle tunes. There was one piece my dad in particular loves (Truck Drivin' Man) and Laura wrote it out for us. My daughter played it for her granpa's birthday, it was so sweet!

I've chosen Staphanie as my teacher, because I needed someone who will really quickly help me make my English accent better. I took the fact that she is also a musician as a big advantage as I assumed she'll be able to hear all the false accentuation I make. In fact, if you want to work on your English skills, it's the best combination of skills.
It was really clever decision. Stephanie is able to explain things clearly and fast. Step by step, syllable by syllable, trains student how to speak properly. If you're ready to do your homework and want to see progress fast, Stephanie is perfect person to work with. And she is very kind, too!

Brevard, NC

About John

Hello, my name is John C. and I am very excited to meet you! I've been teaching Logic Pro since 2010. I have been using Logic since version 8 and now use Logic Pro X for my own production work. I absolutely love helping others learn the stuff that allows them to work efficiently while creating the music they love.

I went to Berklee College Of Music and earned a degree in Songwriting in 2014 and am also an Apple Certified Master Pro in Logic Pro 9. I'm a gentle spirited man who will move at your pace, whether that be the forever victorious tortoise speed or Star Wars warp speed.
