Singing Lessons in Cleveland

If you are taking singing lessons in Cleveland, there are a number of ways to find inspiration around town. Whether you want to sing in front of a crowd or enjoy one of Cleveland’s festivals, the city has many different locations to find musical stimulation. If you don’t like crowds, there are plenty of other ways to get inspired by live music. Keep an open mind and you will soon find the right supplement for your singing lessons in Cleveland’s diverse musical scene.

Music and Dining

One of the best ways to be inspired is to actually get out and hear other singers in a
live setting. Cleveland has a wealth of restaurants that invite live entertainment to the stage on a regular basis. Places like House of Blues Cleveland frequently have live music, so you can make dinner and live entertainment a regular part of your schedule. Make sure to check in once a month or so to get an idea of who is playing and singing at which restaurants so you can get a wide range of styles.

Here are a few of Cleveland's most prominent places.
- Hofbrauhaus Brewpub offers some unique German microbrews and food with a side of live music. http://www.hofbrauhauscleveland.com/
- Beachland Ballroom & Tavern is a unique combination of a tavern environment and ballroom. This nationally acclaimed location offers a wide range of music types to make any music lover happy. http://www.beachlandballroom.com/
- House of Blues Cleveland has both American and international dishes on the menu, and a laid back environment to make you feel at home. http://www.houseofblues.com/cleveland
- Happy Dog Euclid Tavern is one of Cleveland's most famous live music venues. The main food of this top-rated tavern are hot dogs, including vegan style. The range of music is as varied as their hot dog selection. http://www.happydogcleveland.com/about-hd-euclidtavern.php

Live Music Scene

If you prefer to talk over dinner, Cleveland has a fantastic live music scene that you can enjoy without trying to multi-task. With a large number of venues, you will have your choice of style, genre, and time to choose from. If you really like something you hear, you can always see about working it into your music lessons. http://www.thisiscleveland.com/things-to-do/nightlife/music-venues/

Theatre

This Is Cleveland is a great resource for music lovers new to the city’s theatre scene. Find out all the information you need about current plays and performances and happening in Cleveland. http://www.thisiscleveland.com/events/?e_ViewBy=search&e_submit=1&e_sortBy=eventDate&e_pagesize=25&e_catID=77&e_sDate=&e_eDate=&e_keyword=&e_submitBtn=Search

Practice
While listening to music is a great way to be inspired, it isn’t quite the same as actually getting up there and singing yourself. Are you ready to put your singing lessons in Cleveland to the test? Look for Open Mic opportunities and showcase your talent! http://www.openmiccleveland.com/

Or if you prefer something a little more informal, there are a number of locations that offer karaoke once a week or once a month. If you are comfortable getting up and singing in front of others, this could help you get some real world experience outside of your lessons.

While simply taking singing lessons in Cleveland is be rewarding, it’s always beneficial to find something to supplement the experience. As you try to work out what kind of music inspires you the most, spend some time listening to live music. When you feel ready, you can get practice at one of Cleveland’s many karaoke or open mic nights. Good luck, and have fun!

HIghly Reccomended

Jeffrey is definitely a great music coach he has been working with me on my vocals and helping me key in on what i need to work on to get where I want to be. The vocal exercises and songs that he suggest i work on is a big help. The take home work he gives is definitely a big help. Above all of that his dedication to his work I can say is strong and I like it. I definitely recommend him to anyone seeking a coach who has the experience and can give you that push in the direction you wanna be I say book him you wont regret it!

This Teacher has Great knowledge

I have been taking lessons with Jefferey R. for a lil over a month now and i must say when i first scheduled the lesson i was skeptical of how the lesson would go. but after working with him i have to say he is very skilled in vocal training. He has helped me explore what my voice can do, is teaching me the fundamentals and what it takes to sing on a professional level. If any student is serious about improving their vocal skills and moving to the next level... i would refer them to Jefferey R.

George F. H.

Cleveland, OH

*** 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 really enjoy taking singing and guitar lessons from George. He always makes me feel comfortable and the lessons are always interesting and informative.

I am a 61 year old guy that just wants to have fun playing and singing with other people and during our lesson George makes me feel like I am singing and playing with a friend. I started out with a 45 minute lesson but increased it to an hour so that I could record a video of a summary of my lesson on my cell phone.

It is very easy to schedule a lesson with George. I have an appointment every 2 weeks at the same time and day of the week. I leave each lesson with a lesson plan so that I can practice the technique before my next lesson.
I highly recommend George.

I've been a guitar player for many years, but was never confident enough to sing to myself, let alone in front of friends and never in public.

I found George here at "Take Lessons" and had the objective of becoming competent enough to be able to sing in front of friends and family, this was not a quest for stardom.

After 4 or 5 sessions with George he has certainly assured me that I can carry a tune, and we are working on expanding the range as I develop confidence that I really can do this. Even now, he tells me, I could hold my own at an open mike night, Even though that is not what I am looking for, he is a great confidence builder and is willing to tailor the lessons to the areas of interest to me.

He provides an environment where it is safe to expose your weaknesses. He provides the safety net to not be embarrassed, and the instruction and encouragement needed to polish the rough spots into something that is really quite comfortable.

We have a ways to go, however, George has already provided a great boost for my confidence, and I'm satisfied that he is going to lead me to a much broader range of material that I can confidently perform in front of even strangers.

Alex B.

Lakewood, OH

About Alex

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education from internationally recognized Baldwin-Wallace College. I have been playing and touring professionally for 9 years now with a band called Ward 9, and 4 years with a band called Dan Miraldi & The Albino Winos. 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 ...

What a great experience!!! I'm a mid-thirties male with zero performance background of any kind. I can't say enough about my experience. Alex is full of information and he's able to explain the fundamentals in an easy to understand way. I was nervous going into the session, I've never sang in front of anyone, by the time the session ended I was ready for my next one. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking for music lessons. I couldn't imagine a better first experience.

What a fantastic find! Alex has been instructing my 2 sons (middle school and high school age) for the past year in our home once a week. We divided the hour lesson to cover bass guitar for one and guitar for the other. I can't say enough about Alex. He is professional, knowledgeable, friendly and has really pushed the boys to a new skill level. His academic and performance background enhance what he brings to each lesson, not to mention the fact that he's a genuinely nice guy and very flexible in working around our family's hectic schedule. The boys look forward to each lesson and I'm impressed with the advancement in their guitar playing. I highly recommend Alex!

Alex is an amazing person and an awesome singing coach. I came to him with absolutely no experience at all had a wonderful time learning the basics and experimenting in the studio for the first time. He is very easy going and made me feel comfortable. Without Alex's help I wouldn't have been able to come out of my shell enough to continue my lessons.

I definitely recommend Alex if you are in the Cleveland are and are looking for a great singing coach!

Proper vocal technique, breath support, diction, acting

About Megan

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 ...
