My daughter has taken from Lucy for a couple of months on the recommendation of her middle and high school band directors. Her confidence and sound quality have greatly improved. Lucy is a patient and kind teacher, but pushes my daughter to do her bast.

About Sara Ann
I pace our lessons andI over explain a technic to make certain the client gets the concept. Patiently and with a sense of humor we apply it to a song that is a target song the client really can "sell" and just wants the vocal know-how to do.
With two masters degrees in voice and speech-language pathology, with specializing in eliminating chronic hoarseness and giving you the perfect foreign accent, I am a premier singing teacher who still sings at jazz jams sessions. I previously was a full time professor of voice and music education, a Fulbright instrumental/vocal teacher at high school level, an elementary music supervisor. In recent years, I wrote a book & videos as a licensed speech language pathologist for those with chronic hoarseness, laryngitis, & vocal nodules. Clients love how I mold technique to a song the first lesson.

I take speaking voice lessons from Sara Ann to reduce my Russian accent.

I signed up for singing lesson on a whim. Sara was great; very patience and knowledgeable. Please take in consideration, I have no music or instrument background so we worked on breathing and body position which she made fun then at the end of each lesson we sang a song or two. After each lesson, I left with new knowledge and one or two thing to work on that week. For a spur of a moment decision, I obtain a new understanding of music, singing, and met a wonderful creative lady. Good Experience all around.

About Dan
Winner of The Today Show "Today's Superstar" Television Series
Recording Artist / Producer / Writer / Television Talent/ Vocal Coach

Dan G captured the hearts of millions when Today Show viewers voted him “Today’s Superstar” in the highly rated television program’s Music Icon talent search series. Thousands of hopefuls audition and millions of viewers watched and voted weekly. This competition, created by American Idol Executive Producers, Warner Brother Records, and the Today Show launched Dan's career in television, radio, and the concert stage. He has released two albums and his hit single "More than Life" shot up to #12 on the Adult Contemporary Top 40.

Grammy Award winning producer and songwriter David Foster who has worked with Dan observes: "Dan can really sing. To the credit of the millions of people who voted, they pi
cked a guy that really, really, can sing! He has a great sense of timing. He gets it. He has a great sense of delivery of the lyrics, and really seems to care about what he is saying in a song."

Dan has appeared on all major US broadcast networks and prominent cable channels. He's been interviewed on Entertainment Tonight, Access Hollywood and Extra and has performed and been interviewed on the international talk show Christopher Close Up, which airs in 166 countries.

He created, co-wrote, and co-produced a half-hour sitcom for Turner Network.

Dan's passion lies in using his talents and exposure to make a positive difference in the lives of others, especially children. That's why he founded YES YOU CAN!, a non-profit foundation created to inspire and empower kids through music.

Born in New York City, Dan was raised in Indiana as the youngest of five siblings. He attributes his strong work ethic and passion to his supportive family.

Having always known that he wanted to be a performer, Dan began preparing early in his childhood studying music through his college years. His classical training left him with a repertoire that includes singing fluently in Italian and Spanish as well as English.

Dan is enjoying his journey. He continues to perform and teach. He's working on new music and he's heavily involved with his foundation.

Dan is offering private voice and vocal performance lessons. He is now accepting new students.

My name is Dan G, and I have over 22 years of experience in teaching, performing and studying voice. I was a voice major in college, and I teach all styles, all levels, and all ages. I have studied, performed and recorded classical, pop, jazz, rhythm and blues, classic rock, country, folk, christian and other genres. I have performed for millions of viewers on television (11 times on NBC's Today show), radio, theater, and the stage. I've worked and recorded with many music producers including, David Foster and Jim Brickman. If you are interested in private professional voice lessons to grow as a musician, to become a better performer, for fun or because singing is just something you enjoy, please come see me. I look forward to working with you.
Thank you.

Dan is a kind, knowledgeable instructor. Being a beginner it is intimidating to try and learn how to sing, at least for me. Dan does a great job of explaining why and what I will be working on, is supportive throughout the lesson, and able to correct flaws in my delivery on the spot.
I am very happy with my lessons so far with Dan and I think you would be as well!

I am a adult complete beginner singer and Dan was amazing. He takes the time to work out how you learn best and customizes his approach. He is incredibly patient, supportive and observant. He notices the smallest things and shows you how to tweak them so you start making immediate progress. The one hour lesson flies by and I have lots of great homework for the next week. i feel like I am now making real progress

About Raymond
MY BACKGROUND:
Originally from Port Huron Michigan Ray A. began learning to play the piano at age 5. His formal studies in piano include training at Bellarmine University (jazz studies) and the Naval School of Music (classical and jazz studies). Ray also completed electronics and computer studies DeVry University to stage his background for electronic music and music media.

MY EDUCATOR EXPERIENCE:
Ray served as the Music Media/MIDI Specialist and piano instructor at the Naval School of Music during the mid and late 90's and 2010-2014. His expertise allowed him to design develop and implement a music media/MIDI program for the Armed Forces Music Program. This program played a significant role in futurizing the way military musician's train produce and perform music. As a private instructor Ray has continued to developed and influenc
e many musicians at the beginner intermediate and advanced levels of training. His practical systematic and thorough teaching method allows students to develop quickly and rise to their full potential. Retiring from military music recently Ray is busy working on various recording projects and freelancing as a pianist/keyboardist teaching private lessons and providing music media services in the greater Atlanta area.

MY PERFORMANCE:
As a performing artist Ray has worked as a professional musician for the last 25 years performing around the world in more than 20 different countries with various ensembles. He has recorded on numerous albums with various artists to include the Army Ground Forces Band, Orquesta Sensacional, and most recently with the Ian Charleton Big Band (Brain Chatter Album available on Spotify). Ray is fluent and proficient in many different styles and genres of music. Specializing in jazz and Latin styles he is truly a master improviser and soloist. Ray's style of playing is influenced by artist like Herbie Hancock Chic Corea Oscar Peterson and Thelonious Monk. Ray has also performed and,or recorded with some of the most accomplished musicians from around the world to include Grover Washington Jr., Hillary Jones, Gerald Chavis, Roy Richardson, Gary Harris, Don Tillman, Brett Anderson, Corey Cross, Alfie Moss, Abdu Salim, Joel Joyner, Dexter Whitaker, Jim Lambie, Jamie Abersold, and Wayne Bergeron just to name a few. He has also had the distinguished honor to perform for former presidents Ronald Regan and George Bush. Ray aspires to be the consummate musician.

FOR BEGINNER PIANO STUDENTS:
For students just starting out I use the Leila Fletcher Piano series, John Thompson, or Alfred series. After students are doing establish the basic and are doing well I introduce music theory and technique (scales, basic chords, and technical exercises) as well.

FOR INTERMEDIATE AND ADVANCED LEVEL STUDENTS:
I define intermediate level students as students who already have had 2 yo 4 years of lessons and experience and can already play pretty well. With this level of student I work on strengthening their foundation and rounding out and diversifying their skill set. usually with this level of student they have specific goals in mind that we work towards as well.

The intermediate level is also where various piano and music styles are addressed to include classical, pop, rock, R&B, country, blues, jazz (modern & swing) and Latin, contemporary christian, and gospel. The technical aspects of playing these styles like chords, chord progressions, scales, modes, licks and ornaments,technical exercises, sight reading, lead sheet interpretation, music theory, ear training, playing by ear, song form, and improvisation, intros & endings, and performance concepts and techniques are addressed as well.

OVERVIEW:
Overall my students that apply themselves usually progress quickly and exponentially. some of them have went on to be professional musicians and band leaders and have far surpassed their initial intended goals and objectives.

He is also very attentive and meticulous in terms of not just how I sound like, but the overall artistic meaning behind each sound I create. He'd told me that "The sky is the limit". I can definitely see my potential and progress just from the last 5 lessons I've had with him. Thank you so much, Mr. Ray!

A LITTLE BIT ABOUT DAVE:

Born in the city of Rock n Roll (Cleveland) David (Dave) a.k.a. "Blaq Pavarotti" was destined for music success. Son of a Gospel singer, nephew of a nationally celebrated radio announcer and gold selling BMI award winning writer, and Grandson of a man who once sang for President Roosevelt what else was he to do. His future was preset like a wedding between two royal families. Starting at age 4 he began singing in the church and eventually directed the children's choir. By the age of 15 Dave was summoned to become a
part-time radio announcer under his Uncle Lynn. This brought instant success to a teenager in his junior year of high school. For 16 years he would successfully lock down the #1 spots of any time slot he held. During his radio tenure Dave also spent a stint in the Virgin Islands as co-host of the Big Fat Morning Show. During those radio days he would go on to interview some of music's biggest stars from Martin Lawrence to L.L. Cool J, break major records, and work every shift in 5 different formats. The world of the music for Dave started with a bang as the late great Gerald Levert handpicked Dave and Jason Champion for Men At Large whom later would contribute to music history and topping charts and selling millions of albums.As well as singing Dave has appeared in over 26 stage plays, 9 movies as well as a host of judging, and hosting appearances across the country. He often takes time to mentor young artists who are trying to fInd their way in the biz with helpful advice or intuitive vocal and staging techniques. To date he has released 2 acclaimed solo albums. "Blaq Pavarotti " 2009 and "SomethinLikeTheGreatest" 2015 which yielded the top 4 single "Home". Home was also placed on TV shows "Single Ladies and "Scream Queens". Being a trendsetter for the plus sized and his love for looking and smelling nice Dave is starting a unisex vest line called "Invested". Vests in his eyes can be worn for all levels of events and can also be used as bulge hiders, which is the main reason for his passion for wearing vests.

Through it all Dave is a survivor and refuses to change his style for the watered down stylings of today'

Hello, my name is Andrew! I am 19 years old and a music student at Kennesaw State University. I currently am a Music Performance major with a concentration in Tuba and Euphonium, euphonium being my primary instrument. I have been playing euphonium since I was 11 and tuba since I was 12, starting in middle school band. As a performer, I found a great deal of success in being selected as a member of honor ensembles in Georgia all throughout middle school and high school, and performing in many gigs since I started attending college in the Fall of 2016. As a young musician myself, I find it very easy to connect and understand with my younger students, mainly because I remember what it is like to be in their shoes very recently in my life. I think you will find me to be a fun and lovable teacher/friend if you decide to start taking lessons wi

I have also traveled to multiple places all around the world to perform, including places like the Sydney Opera House in Australia and in multiple concert halls located in Japan and in Austria.

As a graduate student at Georgia State University, I unfortunately do not have the time to participate in musical setting. However, I am looking to teach viola lessons on the side not only to continue my pursuit for music, but to also allow me the honor to teach my skills to beginning and i

From classical and romantic-era pieces to contemporary and soundtrack music, I am open to work with a wide variety of genres!
