SINGING: During vocal lessons we will work on the musical style of your choice. Generally speaking, we will spend about half of the lesson working on breathing technique and vocal exercises suited to your style and skill level. The rest of the lesson we will work on applying technique to songs. If you would prefer to only work on technique during your lessons, that is fine too- just mention it!

Missy is very encouraging. She helped me smooth out the final riffs on 2 songs I am performing. I delight in how she took a rust bucket and worked with me to make a finely tuned instrument. Thank you Missy!

As it gets closer to my performance I am getting a bit nervous as it is my first time. Missy is very encouraging and is a great coach in smoothing out the rough places. Doing better than I thought I was. Yay! Thank you Missy

"This is a great place to take your kid for lessons. he has a great learning plan for children. The kinder music for my 3 year old grandson is awesome. My grandkids love it there. The environment is nice, clean, and safe. There is a waiting area ear shot for the parent or you can get involved. I have noticed great improvement in listening and comprehending with my 7 year old grandchild that has a learning disability. He gets a chance to play all the instruments and is taught something about each one each time he comes. Plus there are instruments for sale if needed. I have even learned something's myself. I would recommend ABBEY MUSIC as a great place to get started and grow"

"My past voice trainings have a rigid approach so I was following the instructions mechanically. I thought that this is the way to go--until I met Ms.Ahdda. Her "Voga" (voice yoga) focuses on sensations and helps me to trust that my body has the ability to create the right sound. I stopped analyzing the "why"s and am instead remembering the right feelings. My singing skills have improved so much, and I have only been working with Ms. Ahdda for 6 months!"

"Set Me Up For My Career

Andrew was my first bass teacher and I think that he's still one of the best teachers I've had. I had already been playing for a few years, but I felt like I was missing some of the knowledge that all musicians should have.

Andrew was extremely patient and very knowledgable. When we were learning things I was unfamiliar with (I.e. Modes, syncopation, reading, etc.), not only did he explain these things completely, but he then showed me how to use them in the real world. He taught me effective practicing routines, helped me with my horrible left and right hand technique, and showed me that theory really isn't as scary as it sounds.

I'm now living in Nashville pursuing the whole music thing. I don't think I would have been as successful down here without Andrew's help. Loved our lessons! Thanks, dude!"
