Patrick L.

Arden, NC

I have extraordinary passion for teaching and an extraordinary ear for sound. I enjoy working with singers who want a career in music or simply want to sing for pure enjoyment.

About Patrick

Hi there, my name is Patrick, and I am now a new resident of the Asheville area. I am a music teacher of Trumpet, Piano, Voice and Sound Recording with more than 20 plus years of experience. Below, I relate some of my experiences and philosophies as a teacher of music since 2002.

*** Lesson Details ***
Trumpet Lessons
I have worked with adults and children, with beginners, and with more experienced players looking for a push or a new direction. I have developed many different teaching methods based on what each of my students wants to get out of lessons. The heart of most lessons I teac
h is learning to play or understand songs. Usually, I rely on my students to select the songs they wish to study, which I then transcribe to make personal arrangements fitted to their abilities. Of course, I will suggest or recommend songs at times. I also supply relevant exercises and music theory to accelerate the learning process.

Piano Lessons
I differentiate between concepts and skills, while stressing the importance of mastering both. As important as it is to understand the intervalic relationships in something like the major scale, this knowledge does little for the pianist if she or he cannot pick out the notes to the different scales in real time. In observing that each person demonstrates unique learning patterns and abilities, I have learned that some people will come to understand the conceptual through mastery of memorized tasks while some will succeed with technical mastery only after achieving some conceptual understanding.
Voice Lessons
Having first begun singing at 22 years old, I know first hand that it’s never to late to start singing. Having some experience in school but not fully as a professional till in my 20′s, I have learned from some of the top professionals in the South Florida area. My first vocal lessons was with Gloria Estefan’s back up singer Jon Secada. Jon has his first hit “Just Another Day” that stayed at #1 for several weeks. His one lesson really helped me use singing in my gigging around town. From that time on, I have used this technique for all my students. focusing on JUST BREATHING, has helped many of my students.

Teaching Sound Recording
Working in the early 1980s with recorded music and computers, I was introduced to the new wave of recording at its birth. At Miami Dade Community College, I taught and assisted students in Composition, Sound Development, and Sound Recording using Mac computers and PC’s. As of this day, I personally teach recording in Logic Pro, Bias Peak and Mastering using Waves plug ins and having finished products in Mp4 format and or CD’s.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Mac with logic pro software instruments, piano seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
expect students to provide paper and pencil and put in practice time on their respected instruments at least 30 min a week

*** Specialties ***
Alfred,Hanon,Rubank Advanced Method for instruments.

Jamelia D.

Charlotte, NC

I'm an experienced teacher of 15 years available for students of all skill levels. I base all of my lessons on how best my students learn, and I keep the vocal exercises fresh! My students are welcomed to bring any music that they're interested in, and together we will develop a plan of songs and style that best suit their voices. We will learn proper breathing and vocal production so you can sound awesome whenever you sing! You're welcome to bring a recording device to your lessons.

About Jamelia

Hi! I'm Jamelia, and I'm excited to work with you! I've been teaching and performing music for 15 years. My students have been awarded "Superior" ratings in Solo and Ensemble, accepted into music camps for further study, and cast in school and community theater productions. I went to the University of Georgia (GO DAWGS!) where I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in Music Performance in 2000. I also earned a Master of Music degree in Voice Performance at Southern Methodist University in 2002.

I believe that being creative through music and acting can be a fun experience, and I do my
best to help you discover your unique talents. My lessons involve exercises that are out of the ordinary. One day you might sing while pretending to swing a baseball bat, and another day you might sing while lying on the floor! I do what it takes to get results so you can realize your greatest potential. I look forward to meeting you!

ence in jazz, pop, musical theatre, opera and oratorio. His performing highlights include being selected to perform leading roles with the American Singers' Opera Project for three years, performances as Giorgio Germont in Verdi's La Traviata at The Flagstaff in Fidenza Summer Opera Festival in Fidenza, Italy, main stage operatic roles at The Boston Conservatory, professional oratorio performances in North Carolina and New England in the works of Bach, Handel, Mendelssohn, Faure, Britten, Dvorak, Brahms and Rutter, and many recital and concert appearances.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to spend half of our lesson time working on technique through exercises specifically designed to develop the most efficient use of their voice. The rest of the lesson be devoted to applying those techniques while singing repertoire agreed upon by both student and teacher.
