Laura Z. Brighton, MA

About Laura

*** Travel Equipment *** Students should be able to provide a piano/keyboard *** Specialties *** I have performed in a large variety of vocal genres from rock to opera and am comfortable teaching all ages, levels, and styles. In my lessons I focus on proper breath support, and vocal placement within the mouth and nasal cavity. As a result of my classical training, my basic style of teaching is steeped in the bel canto aesthetic. However, I believe in and use kinesthetic techniques to help students more easily discover this proper approach.

Thanks so much, Kat! Cole responds so well to your gentle guidance, and he's motivated via your choice of slowly more challenging pieces. No complaints at all!

About Derrick

I've been playing the guitar for twenty-six years now, and I've been working as a guitar teacher for the last twenty years. I've been making a living as a guitar teacher in the Boston area for fourteen years now, and I teach in two locations - Brighton and Dedham. Prior to that I also taught at Guitar Attention Center in Springfield, Ohio while I was in college, where I graduated with honors at Wright State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Mass Communications. I've also played in a variety of original and cover bands, and have written a number of songs of my own. I'm working on recording these as instrumentals in my home studio. I also play in a rock cover band called Element 78. We play out every weekend, and even on some Sundays. The singer and I have also started doing some

About Mary-Alexandra

I've been studying voice since I was about 14 years. I grew up doing Musical Theatre, Jazz, Choir-both church and school. I started to fall in love with opera when I was about 16 years and have not looked back. I grew up in the mid-west in the grand land of Fargo, North Dakota and then started my education in Voice Performance and Theatre in Minnesota. I received my masters degree in voice performance and a post masters degree in Opera Studies from The New England Conservatory of Music. During my time in school I have had the chance to perform both in the United States and throughout Europe in many different performance settings including choral, recitals, and operas. I have also been teaching a wide age range of students through out my masters and post masters degree. I have a long ...

What a wonderful teacher!

Mary always made me feel comfortable singing. Since I was a beginner, she gave me a lot of exercises to do outside our lessons to continue to strengthen my voice. In the few lessons we had, she gave me a lot to think about and I definitely learned a lot. I'm already a lot more confident with my voice and, using what she taught me, I know my voice will keep growing!

Music Performance · In studio
Two things are required for a world-class musician: foremost, a unbridled passion for your art or craft; and secondly, a willingness to grow continuously. Without a doubt, Kyle has both and will share them with you.

Over the last decade, Kyle has proven himself by pouring thousands of hours into his craft and growing himself in just about every style of drumming you can name - from jazz, to rock, and playing in groups as varied as nightlife cover bands to some of the best drumlines in the world, to name a few. Let him share what he’s learned with you, with the same passion and commitment to growth.

Working with Kyle may be for you if:

- You are excited about the possibility of playing drums like a rockstar, but don’t know where to start
- You have taken music lessons in the past, but didn't feel like you were progressing quickly enough
- You are looking to get fired up about playing what is truly the best instrument out there - the DRUMS

Kyle will take the musician and drummer you are now and turn you into a rock-solid player, with the confidence and ability to adapt to any musical context, and have fun while you’re doing it. For these reasons, I highly recommend Kyle!

Marching Percussion · In studio
I've had the pleasure of learning from Kyle as the Drum Captain of the Penn State University Marching Band. As well as leading the entire drum line he also directly instructed the tenor section. Kyle consistently pushed the team to excel during every practice and taught us to strive for excellence. Kyle was able to specifically help each of the members of the team when there was a problem with the show to ensure that we were performing to our highest potential. Aside from having a fantastic experience throughout my college experience I learned a lot about musicality and performance integrity through Kyle's instruction.

I highly recommend Kyle as a percussion instructor. He is not only equipped with a vast set of skills from marching percussion, hand drumming, to drum set, he has an unmatched passion for music in general which shows in his teaching. I was taught by him in college and really learned a lot from him. He showed a strong commitment to developing my skills and has a really laid back and friendly teaching style. His percussion resume is impressive having been involved in a variety of percussion ensembles. Whether you are just picking up sticks for the first time, or looking to learn a particular skill set, Kyle would definitely be able to lead the way. Also recommend trying to see him perform with one of his bands!!

Piano · In studio
So many teachers make you take lessons from scratch to see how much you have learned and go over the material again with you to fix errors. It is so boring for me!!! I hate that. I'm sure it works for some people. I like to play my hardest song and then go from there instead! He did no for met. He caught on right away, exactly where I needed help. I didn't waste hours and hours of tedious lessons that I would quit rather than have to do that same material again! Also, he breaks things down that are very complicated, to easy to understand chunks and bits to make it easy.
