Lynzi H.

Glendale, AZ

About Lynzi

Hello everyone! I've been singing since the age of 3 and performing since the age of 6. I am not only an experienced music teacher with a passion for music and teaching, but an experienced performer, and songwriter. I started performing at a young age with the Columbia School of Theatrical Arts, and as I grew older I studied different techniques such as speech level singing, classical, and even techniques from Brett Manning, one of the most amazing vocal coaches today who teaches artists such as Haley Williams from Paramore. I have experience performing many styles of music, and also was a voi
ce major in college. The students I teach will benefit from my contemporary techniques, and can learn to sing in almost any style of music they choose.

*** Lesson Details ***
Do you want to learn how to sing your favorite song just like the artist? I can teach you the techniques! Or how about how to make a cover song your own based off of your own unique voice? We can work together to find, develop, and build the amazing qualities that you have in your voice. I will not only work on aspects of what you would like to improve on with your voice personally, but I will make an individual plan for you that will dramatically improve your voice! I will work with you individually to strengthen any weakness you may have in a fun environment. I am fun, encouraging and motivating! When asking students to do any vocal exercises, I will explain what the certain exercise does to improve your voice so that you can have the knowledge you need to be a good vocalist, and not just know how to sing properly. You will learn many things in lessons and what I teach you will vary on where you are vocally.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard, CD, Boom box, music sheets, etc. Students do not need to provide anything.

*** Specialties ***
Speech level singing method, classical techniques, singing success, various genres including: pop, blues, contemporary, and musical theatre. I utilize the different techniques I have learned through proper classical training, but mix it with contemporary methods I have learned from speech level singing methods.

Ms. Lynzi is so amazing. She makes everything so easy when working with you. Over a short amount of time I've gotten better with my piano AND with my singing. If she could she could get you to a broad way show. She is just the most amazing teacher. If you choose her your making the best decision.

We absolutely love Lynzi. I have seen such a difference in my son in a very short time. His confidence has shot through the roof and under Lynzi's guidance, Josh auditioned and was chosen to sing in his school's talent show.

Lynzi is great at getting Josh to channel all his energy into his singing and getting him to focus and follow directions. I highly recommend her!!!

*** Lesson Details ***
All my lessons are centered on where the student is in his/hers musical development. I will in the first few lessons, assess the student's level and then proceed to recommend a course of study. I am process driven and always try to have my students understand my method so I do try to explain all my reasoning regarding the course of study I prescribe. Every student is different so I approach each individual with total respect for their unique ability and talent.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In addition to the standard music stands, metronome, tuners and music, I have digital recording equipment for student's audition recordings. I have helped college bound students get into serious music programs like Northwestern University, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. For students ages 8 years to 9, I recommend the recorder as a introductory woodwind before Flute, Clarinet or Saxophone.

*** Specialties ***
I am a certified Orff Teacher so I use process centered approach even in private lessons.

Clarinet Lessons

I went to Mr. Masiello for clarinet lessons for years in high school and he has always helped me achieve making regionals every year, making state my last year in high school and consistently holding my first chair in the school band. Although, I did not pursue a career in music, he still had influence on where I am today [DVM in June 2014]. And for that I will always be appreciative. Mr. Masiello is an exceptional teacher and a very amiable individual.

Great Teacher

I have been taking lessons with Tony since 2009 and I have seen nothing but improvement in the way I play. I saw my biggest improvements when I would audition for the regional band. My score increased each year. I went from 560 my first year to 915 out of 1000 my last. You will not be disappointing when you will take lessons with him. You will continue to grow if you follow his lessons.

Dr. Masiello has great patience for a beginning adult. He was able to bring me up to a level where I was able to play with my local community band and not feel embarrassed. He pays attention to details that others would miss. I recommend him without any reservations.

Patti G.

Glendale, AZ

About Patti

I have 30 years of teaching experience and have enjoyed a successful singing, teaching and conducting career in the US and Australia. I have excellent piano skills and can sight-read and play most piano accompaniments for my voice students. No two students are alike so I teach everyone according to their needs and their learning style. I have an exceptional understanding of the voice and communicate using tangible imagery to produce excellent results. I work with all levels of singers from beginners to career level in Broadway, Pop and Classical styles. Beyond university training, I have had
training from teachers and coaches from the Metropolitan Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Arizona Opera and many others.
With piano, again, technique is important but lessons must be FUN! I like using innovative ideas and materials so that learning is exciting.

Practice is important for progress so the more you practice the faster you progress.

Because there is always more to learn, I continue to study and attend master-classes and workshops so I can be the best teacher I can be.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always want my students to leave their lessons knowing that they are better at the end of the lesson than they were at the beginning. Lessons are all about skill-building, so fundamentals of technique, theory and repertoire are included elements. I'm pretty laid back but know that practice is essential to progress. To that end, I always want my students to understand how to practice, not just what to practice. Practice doesn't make perfect, it makes permanent! My goal as a teacher is not just to help you achieve your goals, but to give you the ability to build on your own skills by knowing the how and the why, not just the what.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the music room, 5'8" grand piano, computer, iPad, Apple TV, music stands, good lighting

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must have a piano that is tuned and in good working order or a full 88-key weighted action keyboard. Voice students must provide a recording device. All students will be required to purchase music books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching the Italian school of "bel canto" singing. This technique provides complete connection of breath, voice and body and applies to all styles of singing.

For piano, I don't adhere to any one method. I teach practical, "real world" piano skills including playing chords and improvisation.

I have a Level 1 AZ Fingerprint Clearance Card.

Patti is a phenomenal musician and teacher

Patti is the most effective music teacher I have worked with. She has an intimate and readily communicated knowledge of vocal technique, and crucially, where problems can arise. She has an intuitive awareness of the voice in a way that can only come from extensive professional experience in performance and education. In a relatively short space of time I have learnt a great deal and grown vocally beyond what I thought I would be capable of.

I cannot recommend Patti highly enough.

As a colleague of Perry, we often discussed the psychological aspects of programming the subconscious in order to bring the most out of ourselves and our students. Perry is a world class pro player, and his ability to articulate ideas is profound. Students could greatly benefit from studying under him.

Mollie K.

Phoenix, AZ

About Mollie

I have been a musician all my life -- started learning the piano at age 3. I am classically trained, was going to be a concert pianist, but then when I became 18, I realized that I wanted to explore other genres of music. I have played big band jazz, was in a professional original rock band and played on the stage with many famous rock musicians, have played with many different bands in almost every style of music (including hip hop), and am an accomplished studio musician as well. I love music, period. I also am a percussionist and vocal coach. I also can teach church musicians to play
"outside the hymnal." (I have played in almost every kind of church, including gospel)

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back, I use a variety of curriculums and methods, depending on what is needed by the student. My goal is to help you learn what YOU want to learn. If you are are parent reading this, my goal is to help your student learn what they want to learn as well...I will discuss it with you, but the bottom line is that your student is the one who will be learning. I know through experience that music students only really learn what they want to learn.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect them to have an acoustic piano or an electric piano

*** Specialties ***
My specialty is finding out what works for the student, and making sure they learn what it is they wanted to learn. I use a variety of methods and curriculums depending upon the student. I am very good at helping church pianists learn how to play "outside the hymnal" -- helping people learn how to play from chord charts or how to read music and learn all the scales and chords, etc. I can help teach people that play by ear how to play from written music. Another specialty is helping people to develop relative pitch, and ear training in general.

Mollie has a gift. I can't get enough of listening to her play the piano. She is an accomplished pianist and performer. Mollie has taught children of all ages and is extremely patient and effective with them. I believe if you are wishing to grow musically, than Mollie can help you whether you are a child wishing to play the piano or an adult wishing to write music. I highly recommend Mollie as a music teacher.

Making Music Fun For Everyone!

Mollie is a great instructor with a great knowledge base. She genuinely wants everyone to enjoy music as much as she does. She cares enough to mold the lessons around her students, i.e. if one wants to learn a particular song first, then that is what happens. She makes it fun too. She is kind, patient, and very humble. She knows music, to the core and back again. It has been a real honor to have been able to study with Mollie. If you need someone who can play the entire music genre, classic piano to the latest hits on the radio, Jazz Standards to Improvisational Masterpieces, Mollie is tops.
