I love sharing my passion for music with all of my students - ages 5 through 72.

You can always recognize a skilled cellist. The music sounds smooth and graceful, the tone quality is lovely. Unskilled cellists just don’t sound the same. What’s the difference? Skill of course. The skill to play a very large instrument with relaxed hands and arms by using your core muscles to transfer your body weight through your arms and hands into the cello. Not every cello teacher knows how to teach that.

I believe that my unique combined musical and medical background makes me a better cello teacher. In addition to my graduate and undergraduate musical training and extensive musical experience, My knowledge of human anatomy and mechanics of how the body works can help you develop habits that will lead to the beautiful singing tone that’s makes the cello a favorite.

We will then build on those habits to develop good intonation, a lovely vibrato and a variety of bowing techniques ...

About JoAnn

Your lessons are designed to help you develop the skills and confidence you need to successfully perform in public. I work hard to prepare your lessons and I ask my students to invest daily time working on skills studied at their lessons. Performing music requires the patient integration of mult

She is amazingly patient with me, a newbie, even though she is brilliant! and I am not!!! During this pandemic, she is teaching me outdoors in her lovely garden, practicing social distancing to reduce the risk of virus transfer. I am more than pleased and looking forward to learning much more from her !

I have students from all over ! Hope one is YOU. It is great to be able to offer the option to ALL students if they prefer to come to the studio, or have remote lessons, and a HUGE plus, is they don't have to cancel when ill or even sometimes when away from home with the remote lesson option!

Marsha is a wonderful music teacher! She has an organized lesson plan, she's always willing to set aside the lesson plan if I want to do something different that day, she gives very gentle feedback, and I always have so much fun with her during lessons. I highly recommend!

I have been taking lessons with Marsha for several months. Marsha has been helping me immensely to become a better singer. I am a novice vocalist and Marsha has worked with me patiently. I feel as if I have been progressing nicely with my vocal training.
Beth
I worked with Marsha for about 10 weeks. Singing was something on my "bucket list" and I wanted to find out why I didn't know how to do it. I learned a ton from Marsha, and I also learned that I wasn't a hopeless case!!

Hi! My name is Dylan and I'm excited to be teaching in the Phoenix area. I moved here with my wife from Tucson to pursue a Master's degree, with the goal of eventually earning a DMA in Music Performance and earning a position as a Professor.

I have been teaching for about 7 years, students ranging from elementary to college level. I enjoy teaching because it's a fulfilling job. If my student has left without learning, improving, or feeling challenged, then I haven't done my job well enough.

As my student, I will do my best to ensure that we cover every aspect of trombone playing - technique, fundamentals, musicality, and everything in between. I will cater lessons to your learning style and your desired goals. Lessons are a very important investment, and I make sure that I leave my students feeling accomplished, challenged, and excited about playing.

I was in band with Dylan in high school. He was always the best player, and whenever our director was gone, she had him run rehearsal while the sub just sat and watched. Everyone in the band liked him and looked up to him.
Michelle
Dylan taught my son at Great Expectations Academy about four years ago, when he was in middle school. I couldn't be more proud of my son's improvement, and David always was always very happy coming home from school when Dylan came in to teach lessons.

I've taken lessons from a number of double bass teachers. I've never found an instructor who gave me exactly what I needed until Geoff. He's the consummate professional double bass player and teacher. Geoff is intelligent, courteous, patient, humorous and above all knowledgeable. So, if you're a serious upright bass student, I would, without hesitation, recommend Geoff Bowater.

Vera has been absolutely great to work with, and if you are looking for a teacher who will challenge you, and be tough and direct when necessary, but also offer empathy and support to help you grow and learn to the best of your ability, then I highly recommend Vera."

How to Sing with a "Raspy Voice" Without Hurting Your Voice

Listen, I love me a good, “gritty” rasp as much as the next person but, there is a time and a place. (Lookin’ at you, Chris Stapleton.) Yes, I said it, a vocal coach who likes to hear the enemy of healthy singing, or raspiness, every once in a while. It’s a great way to evoke emotion not just in your song but to the listener’s ear. They hear that rasp and affiliate it with passion, grit, pain, and so on! However, there is a right way and wrong way to approach raspy singing. Whe …
