Body alignment. Proper breathing and breath management. Vibrancy and resonance. Increased range of pitch and volume. Unification of your voice. And CONFIDENCE! Come and get it!

I've been teaching and helping people prepare for success and joy in singing for 26 years.

Having proper technical skills that become second nature, confidence with the music and excellent diction are all part of the package. I'll help you gain those skills.

I tailor lessons to each student's needs, talents and learning styles. And I try to ensure that you sing with ease and in a healthy manner with joy! I don't expect you to become a star (unless you want to). Just have a good time and sing what you want to!

About Laura
Of course you want an experienced, passionate, patient and compassionate teacher! Teaching is not my job; it is my calling and I am very good at it.

I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education (1987, Ball State University) and a Master of Music degree in Voice (1994, University of South Florida). I've taught in public schools in Sarasota. Currently I am adjunct staff for State College of Florida (formerly Manatee Community College) teaching private voice and piano lessons and music appreciation classes.

My music studio has been serving music students in the Sarasota area since 1991.

All are welcome! Lessons are for students of all abilities. Some students come with just the desire to sing or play better for their own pleasure, others come with prior training, some are preparing for an audition and some even wish to ma
ke a career in music. Some people have come seeking help with their speaking voice for public speaking. My goal is to help my students meet and exceed their goals and have more life through the joy of music, to help them gain greater appreciation of music and increase their confidence both in music and in life!

*** Lesson Details ***
When a student and I first meet I ask the student what her/his hopes, goals, tastes and prior experience are. Then we talk about plans for achieving those hopes and goals.

Most of my students are studying music just because they love music and want to improve for their own benefit. Because of that, while I want students to progress, I am very patient. I understand that some weeks it's harder to find time for practice. I provide instruction and tools for growth, and show how to practice, then the students go home, use them and discover what works best for them.

Vocal lessons are tailored to each individual. Exercises include posture, breathing, diction, projection of the voice, unification of the voice, improvement of tone, range and flexibility. Healthy, beautiful singing is the goal. The confidence that goes along with that is amazing!

CDs with exercises and accompaniments are provided. And students can make CDs of their own performances!

Piano instruction is also tailored to the needs of each individual student. With young beginners I often use the "Faber" method. It has books for music theory, technique, lessons and performance. And students enjoy playing along with the Cd that goes with their pieces.

For older beginners, including adults, I often use the "Bastien, Older Beginner" or "Alfred, Adult Beginner". Both quickly teach melody and chord reading so that students can play more interesting pieces within a month. The lesson materials are supplemented by simple classical pieces or other music the student is interested in.

When a student comes in with prior training I continue with what she/he has been working on and adjust it as necessary. Literature for more advanced students is chosen with their abilities, technical and expressive needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio area is closed off from the rest of the house. There is a small seating area for parents which is separated by a screen from the lesson area. I have a Yamaha CVP-103 digital keyboard with weighted and touch sensitive keys, plus lots of different instrument sounds and beats to make playing and singing more fun. I can also adjust the pitch of songs so that they fit the student's voice. The keyboard is plugged into a Super Scope Cd recorder; a microphone is plugged in as well. This allows me to make recordings of accompaniments and practice exercises, as well as recording students' performances. (See below for photos.)

*** Specialties ***
I have been teaching professionally since 1987; I have Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Music. I discover the goals a student has and give them the tools to reach those goals. My teaching style is structured yet highly personalized for the individual. I teach music ranging from Classical to Popular always using the best techniques.

This teacher is impossible to get a hold of. Tried leaving several voicemails and text messages. He has a couple different phone #'s. Don't know which, if any, is the active # to use. No response from him ever. Couldn't reschedule because of this. Plus he lied and said I never contacted him. Now I am out a ton of money for lessons I wasn't able to use. Very greedy. I am not happy.

I love teaching voice! I give my students warm ups and then let them shine! Whatever you want to sing, I will help you sing it.

I have mostly taught covers of popular songs, but can also teach Italian and some opera. My favorite approach is to let the student pick their favorite genre, and then help them sing the songs that give them passion.

About Jessica
Hi! My name is Jessica

If you're looking for an enthusiastic teacher who loves her students (and may be a little bit nerdy), look no further! I teach voice, piano, ukulele, and steel drums.

Pasta, my dogs, and the color green are all the greatest things in life.

Music is a personal journey, and is unique for each person. I love to help people discover and grow their own passion. There is nothing more rewarding than being a part of watching someone develop into an artist who then goes on to influence others on their own journey.

Whatever it is you need, whatever you are here for, your passion is what will push you and lead you, and I am just here to help you with whatever direction you choose.

I have a solid background in live performance, professional gigging, music writing, singing, music theory, and of course in your ins
trument of choice. So whatever you'd like to work on I can help.

Can't wait to meet you! :)

-Jess

I am an experienced teacher, performer and recording artist with over 20 years of experience. I am also a faculty member at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary music where I have taught Vocal Performance, Vocal Technique for the Contemporary Vocalist, Ear Training, Vocal Musicianship, Jazz Repertoire, Improvisation, and Solfeggio (moveable DO).
Voice-body-mind-spirit - it all flows in harmony during a solid performance. No two people are alike, or have the same experience, goals or hang-ups. I tailor my teaching approach to each individual student, depending on your musical background, prior training, emotional issues we may need to address. Fear often threatens to close us off from what we truly want to express. But with solid technique and a fun, nurturing environment to work in, we can get your voice to the level that you want it to be.

About Elisabeth
Learning to sing is a journey of discovery. It is my task to help you become who you truly are, and excellent vocal technique helps you express that. Discover your voice in a fun, professional and nurturing environment that will help you reach a vocal depth that is inspiring and satisfying.

I am a professional vocalist, songwriter and voice teacher with over 20 years of teaching experience. Because I am active as a touring musician I constantly strive for improving my own abilities and adjust them to the needs of the road. My touring and recording has immensely benefitted my teaching, because I continue to have real-life experience as an active musician. I know what it takes.
I have been a faculty member at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City for over 15 years. I've been fortunate to teach Private voice l
essons there as well as Ear Training, Vocal Performance, Vocal Musicianship, and Senior Seminar.
As a touring jazz vocalist I have performed all over the world, from Japan to Egypt, Germany, Mexico, USA and Canada. Most of my touring happens in Europe. While there I teach online lessons only.
As a band leader I have released 12 CDs throughout the years. I also owned and ran my own recording studio for 15 years, until the Real Estate monster snatched it up.
I enjoy going deep into vocal technique with my students, exploring what it is that holds them back from reaching that next level, releasing fear and physical tension, balancing and strengthening the voice. Vocal improvisation is another subject I love, be it free improv or specific jazz scat singing over chord changes. Helping vocalists of all levels become better singers and deepen their musicianship skills is a big and wonderful part of what I get to do.

I contacted Elisabeth Lohninger to improve my flexibility to move between registers and to strengthen my upper range and I was very happy with the results. I immediately felt at ease sitting by her beautiful grand piano and was impressed by her knowledge of vocal technique, sound production and anatomy of the voice. She tailor-made a vocal exercise regime for me that was specifically designed to address my needs and I was astounded how quickly I improved and was able to move freely between registers and access my falsetto. I can wholeheartedly recommend her and would not hesitate to entrust my voice in her care

I will help you achieve your goals and will create a singing/voice lesson program based on your musical interests. Students can expect to start with the fundamentals of voice/singing lessons, such as learning correct breath management and vocalization. I recently graduated from Berklee College of music and have been studying vocal technique for many years. I know there is no single approach to teaching voice, I incorporates aspects of a variety of disciplines into her teaching, based upon the unique needs of each student. I also can teach basic music theory.

Jahcee is AMAZING!! She is patient, perceptive and aware of each of her students gifting independently and in a group. Jahcee has a way of making you feel warm, welcomed and wanted! Her down to earth and humorous character allows you to easily feel comfortable and confident to release your gift, talent and abilities.
Jahcee gives practical instruction to her students and caters to each students learning style. She meets you where you are and assists you in elevating yourself to where your gift requires you to be! I absolutely LOVE her!
Jahcee does give homework and tests you during the next sessions which speaks to her requirement of accountability from each student.
Jahcee will gently push you beyond your comfort zone and out of the proverbial box, however, she will only go as far as you allow her.
I cannot express enough how amazing she is as a person which filters through to her professional artistic craft!
If you want a caring and gentle yet down to earth and structured trainer, do not hesitate to reach out to Jahcee! You will be blown away by the experience and love that she expels naturally! It is truly an honor to be trained by such an Amazing and Experienced Woman!
