Arlys A.

Eden Prairie, MN

About Arlys

Are you a singer or speaker who would like a more powerful, authentic voice? Take a deep inhale.....relax your jaw and exhale on "aaahhh". We begin, by relaxing and finding your "aaahh!" space with exercises designed to connect the heart to the science of voice & movement. Let me help you find an easier way to sustain your best posture, breath support, resonance and pitch control. My methodology is bringing awareness to existing vocal habits and giving you hands-on experience with adjusting those habits. My mission is to help you find your most relaxed & elongated posture, breath support, fu
ll resonance and best pitch control.

I grew up singing freely and naturally until I destroyed my voice thru improper, frequent overuse. I believed my career was over, but it was just starting. Private lessons with vocal professionals coupled with academic studies rebuilt my perception of how I was generating sound and their training gave me back MY VOICE, for which I am forever grateful.

I CAN HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOALS: My cross-training in dance, yoga, Tai Chi, commercial & improvisational acting provides a well-rounded platform from which to deliver information, guide vocal explorers and also help develop talent.

EXPERIENCE:
* 18 years teaching experience
* 12 years living & working in Los Angeles
* A lifetime of performing experience
* 12 years personal private vocal studies master teachers of bel canto & contemporary singing techniques.

LIFE SKILLS: No matter the subject, my focus is also teach skills that can be extrapolated into any area of your life. Life Skills focuses on eradicating negative self-talk and expanding communication skills that help develop confidence, enhancing daily life.

Between performing and my own artistic studies, I have been taking the occasional private voice student since 1997, mostly via referrals from friends and other students. While living in California, one of my voice teachers requested me as her regular substitute at Culver City and Santa Monica Music Schools from 2008-2012, which I felt deeply honored. She said she trusted me with their voices, which encouraged me into full-time voice teaching practice. In June 2012, I returned to Minneapolis and began teaching in my home studio through music services like Take Lessons. Past projects include producing a vocal showcase at The Ritz Theater, musical direction & choreography for a school's 2016 production of the Wizard of Oz; assisting students to prepare for local & national auditions like La Banda & The Voice; prepping singers for studio recordings and congratulating a new student who's stepped out of the chorus to land her first lead role!

I am forever grateful to all of my teachers, past and present, for their valuable gifts of knowledge, skill, grace and compassion.

ENJOY LIFE MORE! Singing & dancing improves our quality of life.

Ms. Arlys is a great teacher! She always keeps me engaged and makes all lessons interesting and full of knowledge that I can learn. Additionally, she honed my persuasive speech skills, helping me project my voice, talk in the correct tone of voice, maintain eye contact with my audience, and flow when I speak. I have learned so much with Ms. Arlys and made leaps of improvement in my writing and verbal presentation. She always spends time to take notes for me and during our class so I can review them and understand the key points of each lesson Ms. Arlys has with me.

Kevin asked pertinent questions about my background and used that information to tailor the first lesson. He went beyond the scheduled 30 minutes to provide a complete and coherent beginning to my studies: the extra time did not upset my schedule and I appreciated his going beyond to get me off to a good start. Kevin had a lot of stuff to present yet allowed me to interrupt with questions, which he knowledgeably answered. His personality is relaxed and friendly. Observing him with another student before my lesson, I saw that he offered criticism considerately.
My first lesson was a good experience (4 stars). I don't know if he is the best ever (5 stars), but he must be darn close.

Mark F.

Chanhassen, MN

About Mark

Dear Students and Parents,
I have been playing guitar for over 40 years. I played in various rock bands for fun growing up and then developed a passion for acoustic fingerstyle guitar playing by songwriters like James Taylor. While still in high school, I opened a concert for Livingston Taylor (James Taylor's™ brother). After high school I decided to pursue my passion for guitar in college and received my Bachelors degree in Classical Guitar Performance studying with Robert Guthrie at Southern Methodist University. I also love to write music so after graduating from SMU I went out to Los Ange
les and worked in the film music industry at Warner Bros. Studios for 10 years.
Making music makes me happy and I want to share that experience with you or your child on the guitar. The guitar i™s a great instrument for sharing the joy of making music.

Thanks for taking the time to check out my page and I hope to see you soon!

Mark F.

*** Lesson Details ***
I've had some great guitar teachers in my life and I've learned a lot from them about music and playing the guitar. I will use what my teachers taught me to help you or your child learn how to play the guitar. I teach beginning to advanced players (except for classical guitar which I teach beginning to intermediate levels), kids and adults, and will work with you in a fun and challenging environment to make sure you are getting the most out of your investment. I am a very calm and friendly teacher who will make our lessons fun while also encouraging you to make progress. I will strive to keep you motivated to improve and will document your progress with the use of technology like audio recordings and video so you can see and hear your progress. I like to work from guitar method books so we can establish specific and measurable goals, but I do respect and accommodate different learning styles. And, of course, we will™ work progressively on any songs that you have your heart set on learning so that you can soon be playing the music that you love!
I believe that there i™s always room for improvement. I continue to look for new ways to improve my own playing. I a™m sure that I will be learning some things from you, too, so let'™s get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I currently teach in the living room of my home while my basement music room is being remodeled. I provide a music stand, a metronome, a tuner and recording capability so students can see and hear themselves play. I expect the student to bring his or her own instrument and to purchase the book(s) that we'll be working from.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a small amp for electric guitar if the student doesn't have one. I expect the
student to provide his or her own instrument, a music stand, and to
purchase the book(s) that we'll be working from.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach you to play guitar in any style of music that you want to play, from folk to rock , country to classical and bluegrass to contemporary Christian. I specialize in fingerstyle acoustic guitar that I have adapted from my many years of classical guitar training, but I also love to play the electric guitar, too.

I had never played guitar before and knew nothing about the music theory. Mark is my first classical guitar teacher. He is very patient answering my questions and he can always find a way to deal with them. Also He encouraged me a lot when I got a little progress. That makes me feel more confident and more happy playing guitar.

Jason S.

Chaska, MN

About Jason

Music comes from our souls and is an incredibly passionate form of expression. When individuals perform for people, including a teacher, they put their confidence and abilities and imperfections out to be seen. That's why it is important for students to feel safe and confident in their instructor, something you will find in our teacher-student relationship.

Jason has been teaching acoustic, electric, and bass guitar for 11 years. Jason's passions lie in folk, blues, rock, and indie music, and he loves to share that passion with his students in an encouraging and patient environment.
Communication is key in a learning environment to ensure that students are working and progressing toward their goals. He has given lessons to students from age 7 through 75, and understands that each student has a unique interest and skill set to be developed. Music would be pretty dull if everyone was the same, wouldn't it?

Jason has been a singer/songwriter out of the Twin Cities for the past 11 years and has played in venues all over the world. These include coffee shops, events, and churches in Minnesota and go as far as various establishments in Guatemala. His debut album was released in 2007 and he has been a part of numerous projects since that time. Jason has also had the privilege of taking intensive blues lessons with Michael May and vocal lessons with Helen Lapakko.

*** Lesson Details ***
Jason is a laid back, patient, flexible, and caring teacher. He has experience with and enjoys teaching all ages and abilities. He likes to guide students through material that they choose to work on, as long as it is within their ability. During his lessons, Jason will cover everything from the introductory basics, improving your technical abilities, ear training, theory, and improvisation. Time can also be taken to work through electric guitar basics involving amplifiers and effects and guitar maintenance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
None

*** Travel Equipment ***
Musical Materials, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Amp, Pedaboard, Metronome

*** Specialties ***
I prefer to teach people starting out in tablature, as I feel that they can more easily access songs in this method. I will, of course, teach them some basic note reading and the fretboard. I feel that learning chords and strumming is a great way to ensure that students feel success as they progress...as they can begin to play simple songs. I play all sorts of music myself, from rock to folk to blues.

Jason is a very nice and patient teacher for the kid, my son loves the class with him very much. Jason also prepares the class based on the kid's progress, it is really helpful even for kid without any previous guitar experience. Jason also communicates with parents well for any schedule change. I would recommend him if anyone is looking for a guitar teacher.

Jason is an accomplished guitarist, and an excellent teacher. He's a down to earth, regular guy who has a gift to share....which he does very well! He takes
time to communicate with me at a level which meets my needs, and is very patient with me. I believe that Jason wants me to improve in my guitar playing skills and knowledge of music theory just as much as I do, and is uniquely gifted to help me. I'm looking forward to on-going lessons with Jason. He's a really good guy, who deserves my highest recommendation.
