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!!!

Amy R.

Peoria, AZ

About Amy

My name is Amy and I teach Voice, Piano, and Music Theory! I am originally from Racine/Milwaukee, WI and have been a musician since I was young. I believe music is a universal language that connects us all on a deeper level. There is something so pure, beautiful, and genuine in music. It has the capability to move us to tears, feel empowered, or even break out in laughter. Sharing and connecting with others is what music is all about. I have loved music my entire life and enjoy bringing my passion and expertise to my students!

*** Lesson Details ***
Taking lessons is a fun and exciting exp
erience! However, learning to play an instrument (or sing) is not easy. It takes practice, focus, dedication, and hard work. We set up a plan at the beginning of lessons to ensure success!

Lessons are flexible, yet focused. It is important to set a routine and consistently stick to it if you want to see results. While I understand that we all have busy weeks, I do believe that consistent practice is essential to success.

Lessons are geared towards you as the student. We set up our lessons based on your musical goals. Voice Lessons: We begin here by focusing on building healthy singing habits, skill building, technique, range expansion, performing skills, diction, and expression. This is usually done from studying musical theater music. With musical theater, we get all the formal "classical rules" with a modern twist. From there we focus on the specialty each student is interested in - whether you want to audition for American Idol, prepare to major in voice in college, or be a Broadway star, we will focus on meeting your goals!

*Within 6 months you will see range expansion, improved accuracy & control, increase in breath control & capacity, as well as improved performance and expression skills!

**Musical theater book/cd purchase is required (discussed at first lesson). Students also need a notebook and pencil!

Piano Lessons: Studying classical piano will give you the tools and foundation that you need to pursue any other genre of music! Students will learn how to read and write music, hand position/posture, phrasing, texture, hand coordination & strength, discipline, music terms, dynamics, speed & accuracy, ear training, and much more through interactive lessons and games! Students will also learn a variety of music genres (including classical, jazz, musical theater, music in movies, rock and roll, and folk songs!).

*The level of success you see with piano is directly related to how much you practice. If you practice on a consistent basis, you will be reading music in both clefs (treble & bass) and playing both hands together within 6 months. **Alfred Piano Lesson book, Theory book, and Technic book are used. (purchase required). Students will also need a notebook and pencil. NOTES:

*Lessons are varied. You will learn all needed skills, but we will use various methods including worksheets, games, rhythm instruments, etc.

*** Studio Equipment ***
A piano keyboard is provided. Students are expected to bring their notebook, pencil, and method book(s) that we have been working out of.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have all supplemental things needed for lessons (worksheets, rhythm instruments, etc). I expect students to have the book(s) we are working out of, a metronome (or app), and the instrument needed (piano/keyboard).

*** Specialties ***
I usually use Alfred piano method books for piano. For other instruments/subjects I focus on gearing lessons toward the student.

Amy is wonderful!

I've been with Amy for just over a year now, having "0" experience in the beginning. I'm so glad that I found her. Amy is a great teacher. She's professional, talented and experienced, patient, flexible and super easy-going.
As a beginner, playing the piano can be challenging and frustrating. Amy is encouraging, even when I think I'm doing poorly. She identifies difficulties and explains/demonstrates helpful corrections. I have learned a lot in my first year and I highly recommend her as a teacher. Thank you, Amy!!

My daughters are currently taking lessons with Amy to learn to play piano. They are really enjoying themselves and have learned so much already. Amy is very professional to work with and has a great method of teaching. She leaves specific instructions for what to work on every week. We are very happy to have found such a great source for music instruction!

Best Music Teacher Ever!

I have grown so much musically because of what I've learned from Miss Amy. She has taught me so much about my voice and being confident on stage, I even got a solo this year at school! I have learned a lot about diction, expanding my range, making a clear sound, and each class is so much fun!

*** 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.

Kenny T.

Phoenix, AZ

About Kenny

I have been teaching professionally since 1965 I am also a professional (full time) jazz and gospel pianist. I perform primarily in the Phoenix area..but have performances throughout the year..in all 50 states. I have written and produced a musical, "Kleo the Kat", which includes 10 original songs. I have recorded 6 albums..of piano and vocal music. My lessons are diligent, yet friendly. I combine fun and learning. ALL of my students, consistently comment on my patience..that is because teaching is my PASSION. I enjoy playing and performing, but there is NO fulfillment like coaching children
and adults alike, as they learn to create the music within them. I teach all ages. Currently, my youngest is 3 and my oldest is 83!! I have taught over 600 people of all ages to play music. I began taking lessons when I was five years old, and continued private until I was 20. I attended Glendale Community College and Gateway College of Music. Students enjoy taking lessons from me because they learn and are allowed to explore their creative side of music. I customize lessons for my adult students...teaching them to improvise jazz, gospel, country, pop, and blues music. I also write some of the lessons for my students of all ages..if they have a favorite song, and an arrangement at their level cannot be found. I encourage creativity and originality, while emphasizing the importance of theory and structure.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lesson are information filled, with hands on guidance as the student understands and implements the lesson taught. The student, ( as well as ME) is usually surprised that the time has come for the lesson to end! I share my enthusiasm for music with my students.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a baby grand that I use for teaching in my studio. I also have a Hammond B3, with a leslie speaker. I have a 120 bass accordion. In addition I use a Yamaha 88 key digital, when necessary.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If necessary, I bring a 61 key Tecnics keyboard with me my travel lessons. I prefer the student have their own keyboard, but am willing to bring mine for the first 2 or 3 lessons..if they are unsure about their ability to learn piano.

*** Specialties ***
proficient at improvisational techniques in jazz, gospel, country, blues
teach to write and read charts for musicians
