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.

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.

Ms. Robin comes highly recommended by my daughter and I. She made the lessons "fun" for an 9 year old! She also let my daughter select her own songs which I thought was a plus ... students are much more engaged if they are singing something they like to sing. Ms. Robin is an enthusiastic teacher and motivates her students to do their best. She also uses vocalization exercises to encourage a better "range" before singing an actual song. My daughter always looked forward to going to Ms. Robin's lesson and I stayed for each lesson and was quite pleased with my daughter's progress.

Robin has been an excellent fit for my daughter(age 15). She has been very flexible with my daughter's rehearsal schedule and seems genuinely interested in helping her improve and achieve her goals. My daughter feels comfortable working with Robin and looks forward to her lessons. She is excited about continuing lessons and improving her vocal techniques and skill level.

excellent teacher

Maybe a bit premature after only one lesson, but after speaking with Robin at length over the phone, and being present during my son's first lesson, I must say I'm very impressed with her as my son's instructor. She has a vast portfolio of experience in a wide range of music, highly educated, extremely knowledgeable, and good at instruction. I'm especially excited that she incorporates music theory into the lessons. Highly recommended!

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.

About George F.

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 experien
ce 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 musician. The biggest thing I've learned as a teacher of guitar, bass and voice is teaching the instrument has only made me a bigger student. The learning process never ends and that is one of the great things about music.

No matter where you are with the instrument - a beginner picking it up for the first time, or a seasoned pro of 10 years that just needs help "putting it together," I believe I can help you to get wherever you want to go.

Regarding availability - make sure to inquire if you don't see a time open that suits you - I am flexible. I perform 4-6 times a week and teach full time. Flex lessons tend to work very well.

Kevin S.

Cleveland, OH

Hello,
I have studied classical voice for four years at the Eastern Kentucky University school of music. Performed in many traveling Off-Broadway performances, as well as have performed professionally as a studio musician in recording studios.

About Kevin

As a professional guitar player and vocalist, I notice that great teaching becomes a harder thing to come by these days. Especically in the area of music. This is where I come in. With many years of experience in teaching not only private lessons, but as well as private music camps and private music acadamies. I will ensure that the student will leave my studio wanting to come back for more to learn!

Music is life, and I want to make sure that my students enjoy their music as much as I do. I want to ensure that all my students grow to become great musicians and as well as possible teacher
s in the future.
