No matter what level, proper technique and breathing will take you where you want to go. You can sing any style, anywhere, anytime with the right skills.
I graduated from Georgia College and State University in Milledgeville, GA with a BA in Music Education, voice principal. During my years in public schools I taught a variety of age ranges and subjects including kindergarten general music, beginning band, high school chorus, and remedial middle school English and language arts. I have professional Yoga training and enjoy incorporating aspects of that when tutoring adult, middle school, high school, and elementary students. I also uses Yoga, brain respiration and other healing techniques in my lessons as needed. I was a member of The William Baker Festival Singers and Summer Singers since 2003 before becoming Media Relation Coordinator in 2006 and Assistant to the Music Director in 2008 and left the group in July of 2009 to pursue other
I like to teach each lesson, for both voice and piano, by spending equal time on ear-training/sight-reading (sight-singing), technique, and repertoire. Especially for beginners, I highly encourage ear-training as part of their practice time at home because it teaches all musicians to internalize the music before their fingers touch the keys or they open their mouths to sing. I can honestly say it's one of the most valuable musical skills I've learned.
When training the voice it can be difficult since singers can't see their instrument. For this reason I prefer not to teach students younger than middle school age, but I may make an exception. Beginning vocal technique involves correcting the studentÃ¢ÂÂs posture, releasing muscular tension in the upper body (chest, upper back, shoulders, neck, and everything above), deep breathing, and the list goes on. However, I can sum up vocal technique as bodily adjustments that take muscular tension off the vocal cords. No matter the ...
Since he was seven years old, Mr. M. knew he wanted to be a singer. Once he heard the glorious voices of the three tenors (Domingo, Carreras, and Pavarotti), he knew he must spend his life learning to make those awe-inspiring sounds. It was at this time when he started singing in church choir, and Mr. M. highly encourages all aspiring singers to join a community choir or church choir as soon as they’re able. Throughout his musical education at Georgia State University (Bachelors and Masters Degrees), he gained a firm musical foundation in vocal technique, ear-training, sight-reading, music theory, and a renewed appreciation for making music as part of a group. In addition, he had the good fortune to learn from some of the most phenomenal musicians in Atlanta: Dwight Coleman, Dr. ...
I have been playing/writing music for the last 12 years. I am a very passionate, positive, and fun person; and my love for music shows in my lessons. Music is more than a hobby to me; it is truly my life, and I love sharing it with others. The very moment I learned to read music, I started creating music of my own. I enjoyed writing music so much that I decided (while in middle school!) that music was going to be my future, my career, my life! I learned to play guitar and started touring around the South-East, playing my songs for anyone and everyone. During this time I also started teaching private guitar lessons in music stores, for music companies, and at my home studio. This is where I developed my love for sharing the joy of music with others! Eventually, I decided to get ...
From vocal warm ups to correct posture, breathing,strength training, diet and performance, I teach all aspects of voice training, tailoring the lesson to help you achieve the results you want with the songs you want.
Recently, I relocated to Atlanta to settle down, start a family and teach music from home. Originally from the UK, I traveled and studied music in Brisbane, Australia, where I gained a Diploma in Contemporary Music in 2000. Since then I have toured internationally with signed acts, recorded albums, guested with numerous bands and composed music scores for two feature films and various shorts along with directing my own music video and having my music featured in various movies and TV shows. I also have booked acts across the US and organized music festivals in Los Angeles. I have vast skills from performance to management, booking, PR and placements in film and television. Whether you are looking to just begin learning an instrument for fun or would like to take your skills further ...
