Private Songwriting Teacher

I have been teaching songwriting for over four years. These lessons are wholly rewarding as I love to conduct it as a "jam session" of sorts, helping my students frame their ideas into versus-chorus form, as well as helping them with basic music theory and sheet music transferring digitally with Sibelius 7 or in paper form.

Anyone can learn to write a song, and it doesn't take months or years of instruction to do it. Starting from the very beginning I can teach you the building blocks of a song, and together we can discover how best to express your personality through your music.

Great experience!

Voice lessons are tough. This isn't like a golf swing where someone can show you physically what to do or reach out and position your elbows where they need to be.

This all has to be articulated by a teacher, and is has to be articulated to someone (YOU) who doesn't even know what parts you're trying to move around.

It takes a great teacher. Eulis is a GREAT teacher. He gave me physical descriptions, character descriptions, accent descriptions, … everything I needed to position everything where it needed to be, even when I didn't always know where it was.

A lot of progress and a lot of fun. Thank you, Eulis.

Eulis has been phenomenal to work with. He's patient, and has worked really hard to understand distinct qualities of my voice and how to improve them.

Private Songwriting Teacher

I've been studying and teaching songwriting for 7 years, and my students and I get excited when we develop a melody or lyric that rolls around in our head for days. The most important elements of a successful song are melody and lyric hooks that are remembered the very first time they are heard by an audience.. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to explore your song ideas, and as time goes on you'll be able to create your own original songs. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you!

About Carl

I love teaching singing to all ages and all levels, including Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, and Touring Professionals. I teach all styles of singing, including Pop, Musical Theater, Gospel, Classical, Rock, Jazz, Scat Singing, Belting, Country and Western, and Rap. I am a very high level

Carl took the time to get to know me, and began to feel so comfortable with him. It was perhaps the best experience I have ever had with a teacher for singing. I received great information and techniques.
Paul M.
Unbelievable. I realized how little I knew. I think you should just send everyone to him.

Gary did a great job of getting me started on my first piano lesson. Learned a lot on my first day...hope I can measure up to my practice plan for the week! Bravo!

Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.

I can help you if you are struggling with writer's block, with accompanying your melody on piano or guitar, music theory, using poetic language, and coming up with catchy melodies.

I am confident I can help you with this, since I wrote and released 12 songs in 12 weeks! Youtube search "Krysti Subieta Angelgrams" and listen to some of the songs I wrote during that project.

About Krysti

Music is the love of my life, and teaching music is my absolute fulfillment. My 20 years of music experience will give you a mind-blowing understanding of music, whether you like modern or classic styles. We can explore singing and songwriting in styles of Pop, Rock, Folk, Latin, Musical Theate

Jon
Krysti has been a great instructor for me, an older, inexperienced student. She and I share a technical background. I find her skill and willingness to 'debug' my problems week after week to be helpful, easy to understand, and on target.

I'm still at the newb stage with clarinet, an amazingly tricky instrument. But it's my favorite sound, and I'm stickin' with it as long as Krystina can stand me.
Daniel
Krysti is a fantastic, motivating vocal coach. She inspires and makes you feel comfortable at the same time. Very technically minded and understands the mechanics of shaping the mouth and throat to enlarge your voice. I had a vocational interruption but will return soon to continue.
Tom
I have been taking singing lessons from Krysti for 6 weeks. In that time I feel Krysti has taken my raw voice and turned it into a singing voice. She is thorough, flexible, easy to work with and the lessons go by so fast! I highly recommend her as a voice teacher.
