Having studied at Berklee College Of Music, i have learned all different types of songwriting in most genres and songwriting tricks that can make your song pop! Being a electronic music producer I can teach you how to make all types of Electronic Dance Music and how to mix and master your product for label submissions. When teaching songwriting and music production I like to try and make a song with my student so that way they learn through experience and see what it takes to get a song from idea to a tangible product!

As a graduate of the Juilliard School and a former violist of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, I continue to gain musical knowledge every day. I strive to pass this along to my students, from basic technique to advanced musical concepts. I have experience teaching privately, providing practice help sessions, and in group classes and orchestra sections. I grew up learning through the Suzuki method, so I encourage learning by ear and emphasize the importance of efficient and organized practice. In a lesson with me, I would focus on learning classical viola technique in order to produce the best juicy and rich viola sound. I encourage the student to choose their repertoire based on their musical preferences, however I always encourage exploration of the classical genre! I teach with the goal of showing my students how to best improve on their own in their individual practice. A good ear, consistent technique, and beautiful, deep, unique violist musicality will all be my focus in my ...

Julia has been a phenomenal teacher. She is knowledgeable, patient, and very accommodating. I have been working with her since a very beginner level, and I have seen incredible progress. She has helped me prepare for auditions and to play in an orchestral environment as well. Could not recommend her more!

About Moriah

Hi there! My name is Moriah, and I have been teaching private voice and piano lessons for 5 years. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelors of Arts in Music, emphasis in Music Industry Studies, including voice and performance training. I have studied with/been coached by Martin Green fro

If you are looking for a very skilled and knowledgeable vocal instructor, Moriah is exactly that and then some.

I started lessons with her right about the time COVID had started and our sessions have been done online. Over the course of a few months, I have felt and heard the improvement in my singing abilities through her guidance. So if you have any doubts about taking lessons online (ignoring the current situation), rest assured that you'll be in good hands with her. She will make sure you understand and fully grasp the concepts and techniques that she teaches you and how to apply them. Even if it takes hearing the most ridiculous analogy for you to comprehend it. Every lesson caters to what you're working on or need more assistance with. So every warm up or exercise has purpose. You also have the freedom of selecting the song you'd like to work on which makes the experience all the better and more personal.

I had developed bad singing habits after attempting to teach myself several times in the past. Like many others, I also hate the sound of my own voice. Moriah though has been patient as well as supportive and helped me undo those bad habits. She's also taught me to have better control, have stronger breath support, how to analyze the phrasing and pronunciation of a lyric, know proper resonance placement, and be more confident about my voice.

A big part of picking a coach or instructor is being able to connect with them and building a good rapport. Moriah has a welcoming and supportive personality, but knows the meaning of hard work and persistence and she will expect that in order for you to progress.

I have a ways to go until I reach where I would like to be in my journey of singing, but I chose Moriah and there have been no regrets.
Chris
Moriah is a great Singing teacher. I couldn't hold a tune. Moriah helped me overcome a fear of singing in front of people after I had bad experiences with other music teachers. She had faith in me. After several lessons I now can sing in tune!! Thanks Moriah for helping me do what I love to do-Sing!

When I first met Moriah, I was a little hesitant to continue lessons with her because she was in her 20s like myself. I wanted someone, I guess, older to be my instructor. The older they are, the more they know, the more they can teach right? ...........Well, Moriah is one heck of a smart woman when it comes to music theory, and ear/vocaltraining! She knows what she is talking about and even more so, knows how to explain it in a way YOU will understand. She will work with you until you are able to grasp what she is trying to teach, even if you have to try a million different methods before the right one is found. She would rather spend time with you in fully understanding something then just pushing you along. She is open to questions, comments and concerns you have. Moriah is very aware of the concept of “one size does NOT fit all”, and she will customize your session to your needs, and skill level.

Her lessons usually start of with a couple of stretches (usually just upper body). This is to help relax your body, jaw, mouth, etc before singing. Then she will do some vocal warms that at first seem pretty basic, and not intense, but they will help you in the long run! Trust me. Then she will practice with you a song you want to try to sing or need help with. As you progress, she will have you work on reading music and other skills. (Course, she is open to working on anything more or less as you need). Once again, your lesson is customized on what YOU need.

I’ve been working with her since July 2018. I know that I have improved on ear training immensely! I am able to pick up melodies much faster than before. I am able to sing more powerful than before which is something I struggle with consistently. She will push you! She will take you out of your comfort and push you to have confidence in yourself. She has a great personality. Kind. Fun. Energetic. Intelligent beyond her years. I’m continuing to take lessons with her until she makes me the next Beyoncé or something.

So I highly recommend her. Book a few lessons with her, attend them, don’t forget to take your water, and a recoding device, be responsible and take it serious because she is taking you serious. After all you’re paying for the lessons. You want to improve. And you will.

I’m looking forward to continue working with her and be stretched more.

Singing lessons that bring out the best in your voice! I am happy teaching a wide reange of genres related to singing (Though my speciality as a performer is in classical music). I believe that a strong foundation in musicality and vocal health can benefit anyone, and from that I can you move towards that specific style and aesthetic they are after, while emphasizing the strengths of uour natural voice. For younger students, the focus is more on instilling a joy of music as a whole and promoting musical literacy and ear skills. I believe that even if a someone does not pursue music long term, musical exposure can benefit focus, creativity, and confidence, as well as provide a healthy dose of fun.

I hold a Master's of Music in Voice from the University of Minnesota with a strong emphasis in vocal pedgagoy and phisiology. I look forward to working with you or your child and helping guide the voice to its maximum potential

I was told when I was 6 that I couldn't sing. Since then I was afraid to open my mouth and If I would try my throat would close up. I had one 30 minute lesson with Ian Magill and I was stunned with the sound he got me to produce. I found my voice thanks to him.

I studied music theory at the Rhode Island School of Modern Music, at the Mannes Conservatory of Music in Manhattan, and at the Reuben Conservatory, in Jerusalem, Israel.
My background in theory is primarily in jazz, which uses some slightly different terminology than classical theory, but mostly applies to all styles, especially as pertains to beginning theory.

so happy I chose to have Linda as my teacher ! she's patient with me (a beginner who does not always have time to practice regularly) and is super helpful with giving me tips and advice on how to be better. Linda can also play ANY song and has helped me learn tons of my favorites. We're working on Annie's Song right now and Linda has helped me not only understand how to play the notes but why we play them a certain way (heck yeah music theory !)

Linda is great. I left with a big smile on my face!

Linda is awesome. After 3 lessons I'm getting pretty good at a couple of basic rolls and have a song to work on. She is patient and knowledgeable, and has helped me get basic technique going. So far so good.

I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.
