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!

I make singing fun. I start out with exercising the voice through a variety of scales. I teach the breathing method in singing, how to pronounce words correctly through training in diction, how to form the mouth properly to get the best quality sound from the voice, and performance and gesture movements.

I also teach, piano and organ, along with theory

Your singing lessons will be fun! I will teach you with a great classical technique, that will enable you to sing correctly throughout your lifetime.

About R. ROBIN
*** Specialties ***
Hi, I'm Robin and have been teaching voice, piano and music theory/composition for many years. I have had a professional career in singing, songwriting and performing, beginning at a very early age. I welcome new students and love bringing out the best in every individual. I also specialize in vocal audition preparation, bringing the student to a higher level of performance, ready to impress and make a great presentation when auditioning. I've had several students audition for The Voice and America's Got Talent, as well as numerous local productions. Below I'll go over a f
ew things I consider very important with a few of the subjects I teach.

For voice lessons, I specialize in teaching what the student has a desire to learn, together with great technique that will last a lifetime. I emphasize breath and diaphragm control, flexibility and range extension.

For piano lessons, I combine great technique with a lot of music theory. For piano lessons, I do require the student having 24-hour access to a piano or keyboard. It's nice to have an 88-key, weighted key digital piano or keyboard. If you don't have an 88-key instrument, you want to strive for that. I prefer the student own a 'real' piano, if possible.

When it comes to composition/music theory, I love making it easy to learn, so it is never overwhelming. Learning theory properly can open up a whole world of songwriting. Having a heavy background in composition, I love the creativity that can happen utilizing the tools of music theory.

My home studio is a fun, relaxed atmosphere and even though I focus heavily on technique, we're always going to have FUN learning and enjoy what we're accomplishing! Please keep in mind that when you schedule with me, I can only hold a time slot for one week for you. Thanks and I so look forward to meeting you!

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 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.

About Scott
I've been teaching music lessons now for over 10 years. I have been singing, playing the guitar, and playing piano since I was 7 years old. I went to Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey to study Sacred Music. While there I had the distinct honor of performing Beethoven's 9th Symphony and Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem with the New York Philharmonic, The Dresden Philharmonic and the New Jersey Symphony at Avery Fisher Hall in Lincoln Center NY, New York as well as the New Jersey Performing Arts Center. Throughout my time there I also developed my piano proficiency through rig
orous ear training and through the learning of theoretical concepts in music.

I then went on to work with Mid-America Productions and the New England Symphonic Ensemble. Through this opportunity I have now sung over a dozen performances of various classical choral masterworks at Carnegie Hall in New York City! "How do you get to Carnegie Hall? Practice, Practice, Practice!"

I've been playing guitar in various bands since a very young age and have recently begun work on my first solo studio album. I am the guitarist in the band Tonight Theater. The styles I enjoy include (but are not limited to) Rock, Jazz, Classical, Reggae, Punk, Progressive Rock, Metal, Experimental, Avant Garde, Pop, Funk, Blues, and Jam. I can assist you with chords, scales, rhythm, improvisation, sight reading and rocking! I can also sing in nearly any style and can help you to do the same.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will guide you in becoming a well rounded and proficient musician. I strive to ensure your development of healthy technique and encourage you to practice consistently. My biggest commitment as your music teacher is to your steady forward progress. My lessons are specifically designed to solidify your comprehension and to enable your application of the skills being learned. Your music lessons will typically follow this format:

*Tuning of the instrument (if applicable).
*Ear Training: exercises and techniques to develop your listening and aural skills.
*Review of current assignments, techniques, and music theory concepts.
*Introduction of new concepts, techniques, and exercises.
*Work on current repertoire assignments. Songs are chosen by the student and the teacher and are level/age appropriate.
*Final thoughts on the day's lesson and a quick review of key concepts covered.

I look forward to helping you reach your dreams! No goal is too lofty! :)

*** Studio Equipment ***
There is a living room for parents to wait during the lesson if they'd like. My studio contains amplifiers, an upright grand piano, multiple acoustic and electric guitars, some computer recording equipment, and seating for parents to sit in on the lesson if they'd prefer.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Small Tube Amplifier, Music Stand, Tuner, Picks, Teaching Materials.

*** Specialties ***
I pride myself on my distinct ability as a rock guitar improvisor. Improvisation is at the core of my live performance. If you want to hear a song played the same way over and over again, listen to a recording. Live performance, to me, is about constantly providing new life and breath to the material being played. Each distinct performance captures unique attributes only available for channeling at that one moment and it will never be recreated.

Fantastic!

Scott is truly brilliant and has given Ben the attention to detail that helps him continue to learn more about music theory. We love Tuesday lessons..Scott is so flexible in his lesson plan..he see's an opportunity to give extra information and stops to deliver more than the standard chords and finger placement.

I am an active performer and have been teaching voice for 5 years. I tailor each lesson to the student's needs and create a supportive and nurturing environment, which gives the student the opportunity to try new things out and take risks. In addition, I teach a classical technique that can be incorporated in any style of music.
