Voice & flute students age 10 and up
Piano students age 4 and up

(I've taught age 3 and up before, however the ages I've listed above for lessons is what I have found to be most effective. Group classes may be a good alternative for very young students seeking voice or band instruments.)

Hello, fellow music lovers! My name is Nicole and I would be honored to have the opportunity to help you take your music skills, whether beginning to advanced, to the next level! I am a singer with 25+ years of experience with solos, small ensemble groups, and large choirs. My singing styles range from opera, musical theatre, jazz, gospel, and christian contemporary, just to name a few. : )  I am also an experienced flutist with 5 + years of study and an intermediate-level pianist with about 5 years of study in the classical technique, and playin
g chords to follow most any style. I also enjoy teaching some music theory (the rules of music) in written, sight singing, and piano chords, if requested. Music theory along with voice and instrument lessons can provide a further understanding of each musical concept.

My training first began in elementary school, in Virginia Beach, VA, when I took my first group voice lessons and concert band classes as a beginning flutist. I continued my study with a large home school band in the 7th grade. I was then chosen to play the flute in an All City Band in Virginia Beach, for excellence in my performance skills. From there I continued my study at a private school in Virginia Beach with many chorus, band, and youth band classes to further my music reading and improvisational performance skills. At age eighteen I moved to Tampa, FL and became a Liberal Arts major with a concentration in Music at Hillsborough Community College (HCC). I graduated from HCC with an AA in Liberal Arts/Music. I was then accepted to further my music study at the University of South Florida (USF). I studied voice and a sampling of other instruments in the Music Education program. I graduated with two and one-half years of music education training and another four years of voice training with a BA in Music Studies. Also, during my college years I participated in the elite USF Chamber Singers, the University Singers, the Master Chorale of Tampa Bay, and many studio recitals. 

In 2013 I completed my fourth year of music teaching in a small private school in Tampa, FL. I have sang with Opera Tampa since their 2012-2013 season in the professional opera chorus for productions such as Carmen, The Magic Flute, and Madame Butterfly. I have continued to add new performance jobs with The Princeton Festival in Princeton, NJ (2014), St. Petersburg Opera in St Pete, FL , and the Tampa Spiritual Ensemble performing in the surrounding Tampa Bay areas. In addition, I continue my studies part time at the Patel Conservatory in downtown Tampa.  

I look forward to working with you to make all your music dreams come true! So, let's make beautiful music together very soon!  

*** Lesson Details ***
When taking lessons with me you can expect to learn in a very positive, encouraging, and laid back environment! I believe that learning is fun, very rewarding, and never stops. I plan to continue learning more about my craft for the rest of my life and I would encourage my students of all ages to adopt this mentality also. 

For voice lessons I like to begin with warm-ups and breathing exercises that can be modified to any style of songs. Then to song selections that will be enjoyable, yet helpful in making your voice better. For opera style I primarily use the G. Schirmer Opera Anthology books, and Hal Leonard published anthology series' for different art songs. For all other vocal styles I enjoy using various published individual-song sheet music or CDs and accompaniment tracks. Along the way giving all applicable tips for producing better sound, projection, breathing, phrasing, and musicality.

For flute lessons I would begin with scales or simple exercises. Then to specific pieces that you would want to work on or techniques from the Accent on Achievement or Standards of Excellence book series'.

For piano lessons I would begin with finger stretches, scale warm-ups and/or easy chords or pieces to get the fingers ready to practice. Then I would progress to your chosen pieces or a book from the Alfred or Bastien Piano Book series', which includes books for all levels and styles. 

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard for demos and use for students, a flute for demos, CDs, and some lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
Vocal: Up to advanced level Classical, Jazz, Musical Theatre, R&B, Pop, Gospel, Sight-reading
Flute: Up to Intermediate level Classical, Sight-reading
Piano: Beginner & Intermediate levels Classical, Chord Theory, Sight-reading

About Hasaan
I have obtained a degree in Menswear Design and Marketing from Fashion Institute of Technology and a degree in Applied Science Visual Communications from Katharine Gibbs School. I’ve taught garment construction, sketching and CAD design classes (Adobe Suite) for five years and have over 17 years of experience in the fashion industry. I have taught these skills to adolescents and adults in various programs including: Day and evening classes in afterschool s, summer programs
As a teacher, my main goal is to motivate students to do their best and extend their own personal limits. I devise programs, according to syllabus requirements, that expand on previous knowledge and encourage students to explore new and interesting possibilities. I encourage students to construct their own learning in an environment that stimulates and helps student
s to realize their full potential. I have had some excellent results with students who have a history of poor performance.

I had a tight time schedule to finish a summer project before I went in for surgery and Hasaan was very sensitive to that. He was able to teach me new skills in pattern making and cutting that made the process easier/ more accurate as well as sewing techniques. I would say my experience with him was very positive and he was always cheerful and and in a great mood and helped me out a lot with my project. I would definitely recommend using him for lessons.

Hasaan Roselle has taught and directed our summer camp program, Camp Fashion Design for four years now. His passion for fashion is clearly evident as he steps our campers through the basics of sketching and fashion construction. Girls are intrigued and motivated as he shares with them his knowledge of fashion and his many years of experience in the industry. Moreover, his easy going personality and his attention to every detail make him a wonderful choice for a fashion design instructor. We have found him to be patient, caring and considerate with our students as they learn the intricate ins and outs of this sometimes overwhelming industry. Not only is he encouraging, he also allows students to step 'outside of the box' and to explore new ideas instead of always following the conventional path. We like that a lot. This is how the next generation of new, young designers is created! We highly recommend his services and we look forward to him joining us once again next summer at Camp Fashion Design!

I must say Janalee is a phenomenal tutor. Her lesson plans are well structured and well thought out. Before studying under her tutelage , I was extremely nervous about taking my GRE. Not only did I pass my exam, I surpassed my own expectations.

Thank you Janalee, you played a pivotal role of my success !!!!

After our 2nd lesson, Sarah sent me a picture text of her and her cast in full costume, while on set. Sarah was in a cow-suit. It was then that I realized I have a pretty dope singing teacher lol.

I was drawn to Sarah’s profile because her prices fit my college budget, and her fun personality radiated through her photos. They show how much she seems to love and enjoy musical theater and performing, and I really liked that!

So far I’ve only had three full lessons with her, and I freakin love them : )

1. Sarah is incredibly patient and understanding.
I missed out on our very first lesson because I had written down the wrong date. I felt so bad but she was really nice about the mishap and even sent me an overview of the lesson plan. I ended up filling out some questions so she could get to know me better for our next lesson, and so that the first lesson wouldn't go to waste
– thank you again Sarah!!

2. Sarah has an incredibly down-to-earth and welcoming personality that creates an environment in which you feel comfortable and relaxed.
It’s been very easy to let loose more and more with each lesson. That’s not to say that these lessons are easy. I feel relaxed but always challenged : )

3. Sarah wants the best for you and is there to encourage, aid, and push you towards becoming the singer that you have the potential to be!
She is always asking for my feedback on whether or not the advice she gives helps me better understand the vocal exercise/warm-up. She is very creative and has me engaging with my mind and body when I sing, like visualizing air fill into my body as my rib cage expands, or squatting as I reach for a high note so that my mind isn’t intimidated by it.

She is always giving me tips throughout our lessons and reminding me about all the things I need to think about and engage with while singing – stand tall, feet planted on the ground, use our “singer’s breath (through the diaphragm), engage with the resonators in my head and chest and avoid those in my nose, etc. Sarah always references to and shares with me any tips she’s received through her own vocal teacher or what she’s learned through singing/vocal workshops she’s been to. She’s full of experience and knowledge!

4. We meet through Facetime but that doesn’t stop Sarah from being able to read my facial expressions and sense when I’m holding back. I'm still learning and struggling with our vocal exercises and she always senses my hesitation, so she would repeat them again until I’m ready to attempt them. She knows when I’m holding back even when I may not be aware of it myself, and she’s always encouraging me to be more confident with my singing and voice. I really appreciate that! Please know that the quality of the lessons are amazing! Sarah never fails to catch the times I sing through my nose, forget to breathe, and my incorrect vowel sounds.

Every lesson I’ve had so far with Sarah has been really helpful and fun and I’d seriously recommend her to any beginner out there that wants to learn about/improve on their vocal technique!!!

About Joseph
Hi! In 2006 I graduated from Parsons School of Design with a BFA in Fashion Design. I immediately began a 10-year career as a menswear designer at Macy's. Since college, I have loved using the Adobe programs for a myriad of projects.

I have always wanted to be a teacher and in 2015 I made a career change and became a College Professor. I currently teach digital design at LIM College, I am an instructor at New York School of Design and I do private lessons. I am also a freelance illustrator.

While my background is in fashion, I have used and taught the programs for other topics such as painting, creating logos, interior design, etc. I love teaching and helping people accomplish their goals.

I would love to work with you!
