About Ali
Ali has had music in her life since she was in the crib. She has performed professionally in the musical theatre world and she has studied in several universities for Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Blues, and R&B. Since the age of sixteen, she has been selected to sing as a guest soloist for venues such as Spivey Hall, Georgia World Congress Center, and Georgia Tech Hotel Conference Center. Ali has also sung for many movies and recordings, and recently recorded a demo for David Foster, Barbra Streisand, and Andrea Bocelli and recently toured as a pianist for "The Women of Ireland." She is a recent graduate of Berklee College of Music and earned her BM in Music Business and Vocal Performance cum laude studying under Magi Scott, Jeff Ramsey, Jerome Kyles, and Carolyn Escoffrey, Donna McElroy, Livingston Taylor, Joan Lader, and Charlie Sorrent
o.

Ali is also known for playing piano. She received her minor in Piano Performance within a year at Shorter College under Helen Ramsaur. She has been playing since she was five years old and has accompanied many people and musical productions.

Some of Ali's major influences include:

Linda Eder, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, Billie Holliday, and Lara Fabian, Barbra Streisand

*** Lesson Details ***
Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio: Baby Grand Piano, Living room, Stands, metronome

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just the music I assign and their appropriate instrument

*** Specialties ***
For Acting: Meisner
Piano: Just beginners- intermediate
Voice: Anything you can think of and I'll do it

Dear Allie, We are so happy to have found you this summer. It is amazing to see Nicholas stay so focused and interested for an hour at the piano. His love of music seems to have grown since we started lessons with you. We really appreciate your capacity to adapt to his needs and to keep him excited. Thanks!

About Joshua
*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my instrument and a music stand for myself, and I assume the student will have their own as well. There are specific collections of songs and exercises that the student should be ready to purchase based on their level of playing and will be determined after our initial lesson. Students will want to continue to invest in other collections as they progress and I will occasionally provide additional materials as appropriate.

*** Specialties ***
I have a Bachelor of Music Education and taught middle school strings in the Houston area public schools. I utilize methods of Kodaly (certified Level I) in creating a holistic approach to teaching music and use the songs and progression of the Suzuki School for beginners. I incorporate ear-training, music theory, and music history into learning about mus
ic in addition to the mechanics of playing a string instrument. My ultimate goal is to help each student become their own teacher!

***Special Needs***
I am more than happy to explore ways in which students with special needs can engage music through listening, reading, writing, singing and even playing an instrument...let's talk!!

Being that this was my first lesson, it was mostly talking. However, Josh seems to be a very nice patient teacher and I look forward to working with him. Also looking forward to hitting some notes on the violin. 🤗

About Amanda
I have been a professional performance coach for the last 15 years. I have trained students ages 3-16 to find their true vocal, acting and musical potential. I provide a very personalized lesson plan for each student, with appropriate warm ups, expert repertoire selection from both current and classic Broadway Shows, and handpicked audition cuts. I trained as an educator of theater with Kids On Stage in Los Angeles after receiving my BA in Musical Theater. With the Atlanta School of the Performing Arts, I mentored children ages 3-16 in their performances at Walt Disney World, Carnegie Hall in New York, and the Bahamas on Royal Caribbean. My students have landed lead roles in musicals like Annie and Shrek. My husband and I run the performance company, K&A Theatricals, which is committed to producing cabarets, musicals, and cutting edge dra
mas. We share the stage with our students and give them the chance to shine with us and learn from us how to be professional performers.

My students have gone on to Broadway and enjoyed careers on TV. One of my students just starred as Matilda in the National Tour.

All the productions I have seen her direct have her distinct stamp. Not only is she a talented actress and singer in her own right but she is able to bring out the best in her students. I recommend her whole heartedly.
