I make singing fun. I start out with exercising the voice through a variety of scales.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method is very practical and customized to every individual. I do not believe that you can use the same style with every student because everyone learns differently. With any instrument I teach, I usually approach things from a three-part method, technique, theory, and application.
Examples of technique for vocal performance:
Beginners : resetting the body and preparing it for singing, proper breathing technique, vocal warmups, etc.
Advanced: vocal warmup routine / stretching, how to achieve dynamic range, extend your range, control and power, pitch control
Examples of theory for vocal performance:
Beginners: relating notes you are hitting with your voice to a guitar or piano; intermediate ear training.
Advanced: how to find harmony, key building, study of how vocal lines relate to chord patterns, improvisational technique.
Application instruction for vocal performance:
Beginner: singing songs by the student's favorite artist.
I've been playing and singing music professionally for about 20 years. As a family man and father of two, I also I earn my living and support my family with music. I have a very student-driven teaching style, work with students of all ages, with focus on helping the student achieve his or her individual goals, small or large. I try to keep the lessons fun but focused at the same time. I bring a balanced and personalized teaching style to my lessons, based on a well rounded education and wide range of real-world life experience. I have a B.A. in Liberal Arts and have performance experience on many different fronts, from local rock cover bands to Top 40, from acoustic soloist to fronting a nationally touring Metallica tribute. I come from a musical family - my father is also a pro
I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from internationally recognized Baldwin-Wallace College.

I currently produce and run my own recording studio, and offer lessons as well. I am certified to teach all ages, any instrument, but focus mainly on bass, guitar, piano and vocals. *** Lesson Details *** When taking lessons with me, students can expect to move just a little faster than their perceived pace. I say this because students feel like they can accomplish A, but I know they are capable of more! They can expect to be held accountable to correct technique and gain a fundamental base of music theory as well. If they put ...
Proper vocal technique, breath support, diction, acting
Teaching Philosophy: It is my belief that everyone has an individual learning style, and therefore, not everyone can be taught in the same manner. I develop a curriculum based on my students' individual needs and strengths as opposed to developing a single curriculum to be used by every student. Younger students will receive general music lessons with less emphasis on singing to preserve vocal health. These lessons will include basic piano skills, rhythm, music reading, music theory, and aural training. Areas of Study: Students study technique, posture, breath control, musicianship, and vocal health. I also incorporate music theory, ear training, and sight reading into my lessons. In order to teach proper diction and vowel production, I use the International Phonetic ...
