My daughter Caroline has been taking voice lessons with Stacey since March, 2014, and right away she developed a strong rapport with her. Stacey is a wonderful teacher. Not only is she a very talented singer herself, she also has a very outgoing personality and truly cares about helping her students achieve their dreams. Just a few months after she started lessons, my daughter achieved her goal of being accepted into her high school's vocal ensemble. Since then Stacey has encouraged her to participate in other competitions and recitals. Stacey has not only developed Caroline's talent, she has helped develop her confidence.

Christopher M.

Cincinnati, OH

About Christopher

I believe that everyone can enjoy singing. Not everyone gets the opportunity to sing at the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway, or other world famous music halls. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness. If you have never tried to sing for fear of embarrassment, or If you love to sing and want to learn more or if you just want to brush up and fine tune, my studio is the place for you. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singin
g within their own level of giftedness.

I take time to listen to a student's instrument and lesson by lesson determine what is the best course of positive action that I and the student need to take in order to achieve the best results not just for today but for the long term. I want my students to enjoy singing, sing excellently, but also have longevity with their voices.

Voice study requires discipline, patience, and the desire to be better everyday! There is a good deal of effort that the student must put forth on their own in that they must practice what they have been taught and come prepared to lessons. My responsibility it to take the students voice and help them get it in shape. I love helping students make new vocal discoveries.
*** Lesson Details ***
I aspire as a teacher to help my students to reach their maximum potential in education and life. Further, I strive to see them share their hard earned talents and gifts with their communities and abroad. I recognize and appreciate the fact that every student is unique and each person has their own abilities, interests and aspirations. With this understanding I endeavor to provide students with a classroom environment that allows for a variety of learning styles to better meet the needs of my students.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard, guitar, music stand, and additional seating

I am very happy I started lessons with Dr McBride. He passes on his knowledge and experience in a straightforward gentle, and professional manner. In a short time I have noted positive progress and improvement from his pearls of wisdom and assigned vocal exercises. Recommended without any reservation!

Zaky N.

Independence, KY

About Zaky

Hi, my name is Zak! Music is a beautiful thing. It has the power to give and shape emotions, send a message, move and inspire people. Music, and teaching have always been a big passion in my life. The ability to take knowledge you have, and show and shape someone with those skills. It is an amazing feeling. I am a passionate, and caring instructor. My teaching style is encouraging, motivating, and educational. I think you can do anything you set your mind to, and I use that by showing my students that I believe in them. Using a curriculum that was taught to me, and been used even in schools, a
nd universities, it fits all age and skill levels. Starting with Rock, moving to Funk, ending with Jazz. When drumming playing with music, learning improvisation, and playing by ear is important. I also focus on this, having students learn their favorite songs, and learn to play with new music as well. This keeps students interested, and adds a fun personal element to their lessons. I also have implemented use of a teaching app, so while practicing if students have a question they can ask me right then so to not forget, and I can give feedback. It also has a practice tracker tool. If you have any questions feel free to email me. I look forward to meeting you, and helping you reach your music goals!

I have nothing but great things to say about Zak N., my daughter's instructor - he is SUPER with her and has given her confidence and the self-esteem she lacked before. I would refer family/friends and others to him in a heartbeat!!! He is the BEST!!!

Zak has gone so far out of his way to accommodate us. He has taken my daughter under his wing, insisting that she surpasses him in his expertise and spends 4 times the amount of time he is getting paid for, just to increase her skills and confidence. This is all while he attends two different colleges on a full-time basis!!! He is simply amazing, and incredibly talented!

Rachel M.

Erlanger, KY

About Rachel

My name is Rachel and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2005 and have loved helping my students prepare for solo & ensemble competitions, expand their voice range, and prepare for auditions. My students have gone from being never-sang-before-in-my-life to hitting the highest marks in competitions and landing the perfect roles in auditions, and I couldn't be prouder of each of them! I went to Olivet Nazarene University and earned a dual degree in Vocal Performance and Worship Music in 2005. I'm a fast-paced and focused person and my teaching style is detailed, w
ell-rounded, and passionate. My music motto is to meld passion and excellence together. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

I had done a few shows and sang in choirs before I started lessons with Rachel, but had no one-on-one formal vocal training. I thought singing was just...singing. I had no idea all the technique and science that went into being the best vocalist possible. She expanded my range, helped me learn harmony, and how to sing from my diaphragm and use my whole body to sing . She's patient, funny, and will teach you more than you could even realize !!

Jenna S.

Cincinnati, OH

About Jenna

Dear Future Student,

It is my experience that if you can speak, you can sing. In these lessons I combine my knowledge of vocal pedagogy as well as extensive personal study of the voice with my background in yoga in order to provide you with a well rounded education of the voice as a full body instrument. Your lesson will be tailored to you and your goals. Whether you are interested in classical music, pop or anything in between, this technique applies to you. It is my true joy to guide students in the discovery of their voice. I look forward to helping you do just that.

All the Best,

Jenna
