Hip Hop & Rap highlights and demands excellence in one of my personal favorite aspects of music: rhythm! As a singer who started out as a drummer, rhythm was everything.

I saw that Myreah was very passionate about helping my grandkids succeed. She has done an excellent job teaching them phonics and helping them learn to read. They all are striving and doing exceedingly well with reading and has greatly improved with their spelling, which is wonderful!

Rene has helped me gain confidence, skill, and curiosity when I approach to singing. He brings humor, personality, and patience to each lesson. Despite being an absolute beginner, he helped me feel proud and valued each lesson. I can not recommend Rene for singing lessons enough!
Romeo C.
Rene is a great teacher that teaches not only technique but also music theory and shows you how to practice effectively and with purpose instead of just noodling on the guitar. Overall, I personally have learned a lot since I started my lessons with him.
