About Rene T.

Miami, FL
View Full Profile

I have been teaching voice for over 25 yrs.
I try to get the student to understand the strengths and limitations of their voice and how to expose them to help create the strongest performance.
I work on exercises and techniques that help draw out the best to offer in a unique Individual.

About Rene
Knowing at the age of 5 that music was my life, by being brought up surrounded by praise music and gospel, my early exposure to music helped me to find every Instrument and style just my thing! I wanted to play everything and learn all aspects of music. I started with singing in the children's choir and then developed into piano and music theory. At the age of 12 I began to learn classical guitar, and at 15 took on various styles like Flamenco, Jazz and Rock. I graduated from High School having played in the school band achieving recognition In national Institutions Like IAJE (International Association for Jazz Education) and state band finals. I was also composing from a very early age, and at 18 released my first album (self-titled) which can still be heard and purchased today through various music outlets, since i have released over 15
albums with various ensembles and bands. In college I already knew from my previous experience that I wanted to teach and pass on the joy that music brought to my life. I studied Music Theory and Jazz and finished my degree in Music Education. I have been teaching all in all for about 14 yrs. And I have enjoyed every minute I have spent with my students learning as much from them, as them from me. I am looking forward to meeting new and eager students who really want to bring their inner music out to share with the rest of us music aficionados! and develop their skills to the peak of their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method ranges depending on the student. I believe in my experience that everyone learns differently, therefore everyone develops at their own pace. I try to find key strengths in each student and expose this to their advantage, using their abilities to further develop their skills, this method has shown the most promising results and students usually find themselves playing and performing just a couple of months after their first lessons. Part of my method involves a lot of performance and recital opportunities to help break any fears and inhibitions a student may bring with them. Music is about sharing, so an early exposure to this method helps to strengthen and stabilize a core acceptance of a students style and path, giving them and those close to them a very clear picture of their development and achievements.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has all instruments at both his home and college studio

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide lesson material, song charts and a progression scale. I require student to have an Instrument and recommended technique literature.

*** Specialties ***
My classical training began in High School with Influences in Segovia, and Romero I studied classical for 4 yrs. and trained in Jazz and Improvisation with performances In Big Band and group ensemble. Also sang and played in the school gospel choir.

****Personal Statement*****

If you needed a reason

There is no question that music touches us instantly and activates images, emotions and memories that linger with us throughout our lives. As a casual listener or an obsessive music elitist, there are times in our lives when we get blown away by a sound so unique our entire body vibrates and resonates with the touch of something out of this world. I can honestly say when this happens to me I feel as close to a spiritual connection than anything I have experienced otherwise. I believe it is these exact events that have triggered my need to be completely involved in the making, performing and consuming of music. The creative process, to me, is the single obvious reason we exist in this world. We create and share, learn and interpret, build on previous ideas and inspire others to perfect upon this process. It is no doubt a very humbling experience to realize you are part of it all. During this process you come to realize how important you are as an Individual, how there is no other vessel like you in this world, nor has there ever been or ever will. You are here now and your voice, your talent, your gift is an instrument to the great choir of the human spirit. No one but you can relate this, a reason to be, to create, to give.

Miami, FL

Singing lessons are focused on the basics of singing and tools for voice building: vocal and breathing technique, pitch awareness, tone quality, increased range and projection, phrasing and style development.

About Karen
I am a professional singer with over 25 years experience performing individually and with bands, orchestras, ensembles, choirs, and a cappella groups in concerts, theater, clubs and festivals, nationally and internationally.

I began singing in the church choir, talent shows and performing with various groups as a teenager. Music allowed me creative freedom and excitement and took me to a world of wonder. Attending music schools and colleges I studied voice, piano, performance technique, theory, sight singing/ear training, composition, jazz theory, improvisation, world music, and musical theater.

*** Lesson Details ***

I enjoy teaching music and inspiring students. As a vocal coach and piano instructor, I tailor lessons to fit students' particular needs to develop skills as they prepare for auditions, musical careers or music fo
r personal enjoyment. Lessons move at a pace that is comfortable for, and challenging to, students. I aim to strengthen musical intuition and insure steady and thorough progress.

I offer In-Home training, allowing students to take private lessons at their convenience in their homes.

Miami, FL

- song selection
- key choice
- breath control
- solfege
- increasing throat space by lowering the larynx
- developing controlled muscular adduction in the vocal tract
- developing more effortless projection through tonal focus
- phrasing
- understanding and hearing the difference between basic vowel categories.

About Lucian
Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orchestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through pr
actice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and lets the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

Lorna is not only a trained educated voice teacher, she's also a vocalist who sings the genres she teaches. When taking lessons with her you will learn the art and science of singing. In the initial stages of lessons students are assessed to see what level they are on vocally. After doing an assessment a lesson plan specific to the student's needs is created, and Lorna strives to help her students reach each goal. During your lessons you will learn techniques like breathing, singing with resonance (projection), diction, expanding your range and other techniques that are needed to enhance your voice and performance skills. Also you will have lots of fun learning with Lorna.

Ms. Lorna is an excellent teacher. My daughter, Michelle, has learned a lot in a short period of time. As a mother, I did not know the importance of using voice techniques such proper breathing, techniques used to avoid injury to your vocal area, etc. There is so much more we both have learned. Essentially, this has improved her singing ability. I believe she has the potential to succeed at singing with Ms. Lorna as her teacher. She has really improved. Additionally, Ms. Lorna encourages her. Michelle loves taking the singing classes and looks forward to attending each. Thank you!

Mrs. Lorna is a great coach. She is patient and really wants you to learn. I have no singing experience so I'm starting from 0 and she's really encouraging.

I base my teaching on operatic techniques (breathing, proper tone support, range expansion, etc.) applied to popular repertoire. Together we'll find "your voice".

About Axel
I found out early on (age of 13) that I had a facility to teach and help friends understand music concepts. Some said it's a gift, others said it's vocation. To me it was just sharing what I loved. Since I had already decided to make music my career I made it a point to learn more and all I could in this field. Three degrees later (B.M /Berklee College of Music, B.M and M.M. /University of Miami) having studied under amazing Masters and years of performing, touring, producing and recording I have a lot to offer anyone, any age, any level when they choose me as their music teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students would describe our lessons as fun and enjoyable. That's because I want everyone to learn the basics of music in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I'm easy going and encouraging in character and make it a point to expla
in in the simplest manner the many concepts of music. I help students develop good habits of practice so they can improve their skills by giving them personal tips. Each student is unique and learns at a particular pace. I'm in tune with the student and move accordingly helping him/her navigate thru the music lesson while providing assistance towards reaching their specific goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano /keyboards/ protools in my studio with living room seating for parents. Coffee/water always complementary. Protools recording studio available for my student singers at discounted rates. Affordable and competitive rates for amateur-professional singers looking to record/produce a demo.

*** Travel Equipment ***
None. Currently not traveling to students homes. Lessons available at my studio only.

*** Specialties ***
Studied Jazz & Classical. Performed Pop, Rock, R&B and Latin musical styles.

I address classes according to student's needs and interests. Fun, instructive, creative and with a strong sense of good taste while performing. My interest is to guide students to find their personalities while doing what they like the most. With about 12 years of experience in the field, it is vital to me to create a connection with my students, so they can understand the depth of the knowledge I teach by passion. I would like to offer exposure for those ones interested, and I like to record and produce my students, so they can appreciate progress and to take proud of their achievements. Music creates and shapes personalities. It develops the inner world and can become a powerful tool in these times that run. We all need music, is not a lie. We all were born with its MAGIC!

About Waldo
I am a professional Pianist, Composer, Choir Conductor, and Vocalist who also write songs, orchestrate, and make arrangements. Cuban who studied primarily in Cuba (ENA and ISA), and finished studying in the USA. I have played in several important Concert Halls, among them, it is included Carnegie Hall in NY. I have worked on several projects including music for TV and Musical Theater.

Even though I studied Classical Piano, I love Pop Music, Jazz, and I am always open to new genres, as long it is done with good taste and makes a positive impact on others. Creative, fun, professional and knowledgeable is the way I define my ART.

I have won several awards since I was younger after starting studying music at the age of 15, and since then I have had an intense career performing and creating music for endless different projects, such as
playing music alive for a play, composing music for Symphonic Orchestra, Contemporary music for different formats (like piano, violin, and clarinet), or even Musical Theater.

Teaching is one of my passions, and I have seen some of my students to be successful in National Musical Contests, such in Jazz in WorldStrides on Stage in New York City.
