My pre-teen and teen students are singing and have sung leading roles in musical theater production at Harris Center, Elk Grove and Music Circus. In addition to the basics of how to produce a strong singing tone using belt, mixed and legit (head) voices, you will learn how to sing musically with meaning and drama. You will learn the key elements of various styles, including traditional, jazz, swing, pop, rock and folk style and how to incorporate them into your singing. I'll work with you to develop the strong chest, mixed and head voice, the abilities to sing loud and soft and to modulate from bright to mellow that you will need. To help you accomplish this, I will help you become very familiar with your physical instrument - how it functions and how to make it work safely, reliably and with good results.

I will help you understand and hear the underlying harmonic structure of your songs and how to sing with a variety of accompaniments, including karaoke, live piano ...

I received about 10 lessons from JoAnn and feel very good with the results. I started playing guitar and singing in a small band and knew that I needed help. Joann educated me with many warm up lessons, a good start on reading music, and numerous exercises towards reaching pitch that will also save my vocal chords from harm. It's up to me to practice and use the available tools that JoAnn has introduced me to while I take a break from lessons while traveling. JoAnn is a professional singing teacher.
Abigail
She is great! My daughter really enjoys her lessons and we appreciate how thorough JoAnn is.
Angelica
JoAnn is a very patient and kind teacher. In the last few lessons I've had, she has taught me more than Ive learned with my previous teacher of 8 years. She is very understanding and teaches her students everything we need to know to be a good vocalist. I would highly recommend her.

About Sue

Learning the flute is a great way to explore your creativity. Flute is the one wind instrument with amazing versatility and expression. It is as comfortable in an orchestra as a jazz band. Do you or a child you know want to learn how to play flute, recorder, baroque flute, or even piccolo? I l

Sue is patient and extremely knowledgeable about music and flutes. She has an easy going personality and I feel very comfortable learning under her guidance.
Beth
I can't say enough great things about Sue! Under her guidance, it's been a pleasure getting back into playing my flute after a hiatus of over 25 years. Her knowledge of the instrument and expert instruction (as well as her infinite patience!) continue to provide me with the motivation I've needed to overcome some of the challenges I've faced after being away from my instrument for so long. Her teaching style is relaxed and flexible but firm; she knows just when I need to be challenged and just when to back away a bit. She's been a great fit for me, and I encourage other flute players of all levels to giver her a try!
Rina
Dr. Sue Sheya is truly an exceptional instructor. As a student who studied a little bit of music in Europe, it was difficult for me to adjust to the American solfege system (C, D, E scale) as I was used to the European solfege (Do, Re, Mi). However, Dr. Sheya was very flexible and adjusted all her lesson materials so that I could truly succeed in learning. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a supportive, friendly, and enthusiastic teacher that can truly guide them in learning how to play the flute!

She is able to quickly determine what works best for me, and encourages me all along the way. I would absolutely recommend Anne for anyone wanting to learn harp, or improve upon their abilities. She is fun to work with, always with a smile, and is very personable.

I work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for young musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

About Jon

I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BME from the College of Wooster in Ohio. Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collabo

"Chris was very patient and provided great advice, examples and coaching. This is my first voice lesson and I am 54 years old and I was very nervous and unsure, but Chris made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am looking forward to the next lesson and I am already practicing. My goal is to improve my singing and perhaps one day be on a local stage playing a small part, something that has been in my system for many years! I believe Chris will provide me with the training that may one day assist me in achieving my goal."

"My son has been working with Mrs Marty for a month now and he has shown exceptional growth. He is a high functioning autistic boy who can be non verbal and jittery at time. Marty is patient with him and when they play the piano together it has become an outlet of expression for my son. I do not play and so I am so grateful to Marty for all the hard work she puts in to help my son find an avenue of expression. She puts together personalized binders that my son loves to have to sit at practice his “homework” lesson Marty gave him for the week. The binder has served as a wonderful point of reference for not only my son but for me to understand basic piano techniques so that I may also help my son and understand what he is learning. We would recommend Marty to anyone who has an interest in learning piano!"

Dan made me feel very comfortable from the beginning. This is the first voice lesson I have ever had and I wasn't sure what to expect.

Learning the Piano: 5 Ways to Bring Out the Melody in Songs

How do you make your melodies shine when you're learning the piano? Read on as Powell, OH teacher Sara Marie B. shares some exercises to try...   As you're learning the piano, one of the most difficult things to do, especially for young children or beginning pianists, is to bring out the melody. Simply saying it does not help, so I've found I need to provide students with ways to practice this at home, guiding them toward the correct sound. If you're listening well and spending time …
