Bruce S.

Boulder City, NV

About Bruce

I received my degree from the University of Utah in instrumental music education. Along with specialized training in band and orchestra instruments, I also offer lessons in guitar, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica in playing and performance. When a student has a song they want to learn, I focus lessons around the requested song. I also have an extensive library of songs that I utilize. My music methodology is built around a song book that also has a CD attached. This has proven to be a lot of fun for all my students. It makes practice time more fun as they "play along" with the CD.

With folk instruments I start by teaching the student basic chords and basic chord sequences.
In the beginning I stress the proper hand position and I spend some time perfecting the best finger position. This eliminates a lot of problems that will come up later. For the first songs I teach them songs that use those same chords and chord sequences. Soon after that I teach them how to read music. This is vital to being able to play lead on any folk instrument. As the student progresses he or she is exposed to many different styles of music I also will teach several different picking and strumming patterns. .The student is also taught about more advanced chord progressions and music theory that can be used in any situation.

For brass instruments I teach techniques in developing breath control and embouchure development. Attention to these details will eliminate problems that could come up in the future. The student will learn how to read music from the start. As the student develops these basic techniques I begin working on tone development and breath support. As the student progresses he or she will be exposed to many different musical styles.
During the past two years I have been working for the Clark County School District as a Para Pro. I help students that need extra help to be more successful on their instrument.
I specialize in teaching the lower brass family. That is the Tuba, Trombone and the Baritone. I also train new teachers in the lower brass family if the new teachers has no experience when they first start out.

Glenn W.

Henderson, NV

About Glenn

I have been active in the entertainment industry since the age of 12, when I gave my first professional performance. Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the house, in the yard, in the classroom. That is perhaps why I identify so well with the young people who gather so much enjoyment from "just singing" at every opportunity. I studied professionally for over 10 years with renown soprano and voice teacher Sylvia Jensen, who was instrumental in the enhancem
ent of my vocal knowledge and technique. She is now the Director of Education for the Miss Ohio pageants of the Miss America competitions, elevating many young ladies to the national spotlight. At age 14, I auditioned for, and was added to cast of a network television variety program, "The Gene Carroll Show", that was a television institution for over 30 years in the Midwest. I was a featured performer on that program for over 7 years, all the while perfecting the art of "playing to a camera." This experience was invaluable, and the knowledge I gathered is now included in my curriculum. I also began performing a solo act in the nightclub circuit at the age of 15, performing up and down the "north coast" from Cleveland, OH, (my home), to Erie. PA. At a very young age, I learned the difficult art of choosing musical material and pacing a show; also adapting to performing under a myriad of conditions with a vast array of musical accompaniment. After graduating college with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing, I assembled my own band, and took to the road. That experience eventually brought the act to Las Vegas in 1982. Over the years my show has been a staple in major casino cabarets in Las Vegas, and all over Nevada. Since my first engagement at The Landmark Hotel in the early 1980's, I have literally been up and down the famed Las Vegas Strip many times over. The Desert Inn, The Dunes, The Stardust, The Maxim, The Tropicana, New York New York, Mandalay Bay, MGM, Bally's, The Flamingo, The Imperial Palace, The Four Queens, The Golden Nugget, The Fremont, The Venetian, The Palazzo, and a three year engagement at The Riviera. My show is truly comprised of musical variety; classics, show tunes, jazz, rock, blues, r&b, country. Even a presentation of "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera, that I perform in full costume. It is this ability to successfully deliver an extensive repertoire that I am enthusiastic about passing along to the next generation of entertainers.

I have been truly blessed in my career to have experienced so many highlights; too many to document. From winning an understudy roll in the Broadway Musical "Platinum" starring Hollywood actress Alexis Smith, to performing our National Anthem at events ranging from Major League Baseball to ESPN Boxing to receptions for major dignitaries, to recording 7 albums and a full-length video, to being asked to perform for Mr. Frank Sinatra at the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Golf Tournament, I have lived a full life on stage, learning and absorbing every bit of knowledge gathered along the way.
Now it is my desire to escalate my status as an educator to a more "one on one" experience; availing myself the opportunity to pass along that wealth of knowledge to individual students who aspire to enjoy the entertainment profession as I have, providing them with the skills needed to successfully compete. Or, should it be their choice not to pursue entertainment as a vocation, to gain a working understanding of all facets of their instrument so as to gain a better appreciation of music. Whatever the goal of the student, I feel that I am equipped to provide them with the tools needed to achieve that goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Content of Sessions

Generally, the first 10-15 minutes of each lesson will be focused on vocal warm up and exercise. (For guitar students, we will review the previous
week's assignment). For Vocal Students, it is understood that the voice mechanism is made up of muscles, and as an athlete prepares for a sporting event, a singer must prepare to vocalize. It is at this time in our lesson when the student will develop good habits of voice maintenance, which will serve them well throughout their careers. The proper care and preservation of the vocal unit cannot be stressed enough, especially for pubescent and pre-pubescent students. Vocal chords in a developmental stage are most susceptible to damage, and because they are particularly sensitive, they must be handled with care. Our warm up regimen is designed to strengthen as well as preserve the singing voice.

I am not an advocate of getting too involved and "bogged down" in the technical aspects of singing, especially with the young students, and
especially early in our program. This is not to say that breath control, tonality, pitch, etc. are not vital to good singing, because these workings are ESSENTIAL, and their application will certainly be incorporated into our studies. Some instructors, on occasion, have a tendency to lose sight of the fact that much to do with singing happens "naturally", and too much focus on the "technical" can actually be inhibiting. This can alter a beautiful, natural tone into one that is unnatural and contrived.

I adhere to the philosophy that above all else, SINGERS WANT TO SING SONGS, and musicians-in-training want to play music. That is our focus, and all of our training is conceived with that objective in mind. All the technical knowledge and coaching serves no purpose without practical application. It is my belief that the most significant progress occurs when a vocalist is singing a song.

Nearly every element of instruction can be utilized in the performance of one song. This is why the majority of our session time will be spent "in song". For the very young student, we will concentrate our efforts with the students choices of favorite and familiar songs. The older students will undoubtedly have favorite songs, styles and artists. Special attention will be paid to the genre most enjoyed by the student, but diversity will be emphasized as well, and a variety of genres will be unpacked and explored. I believe that whatever a student's musical goals and aspirations, it is in their best interest to gain knowledge and insight in all facets of music, singing, and performance.

The most vital pre-requisite for any student is their enthusiasm. My ambition will be to harness that enthusiasm and channel it productively through stimulating instruction. Our sessions will be informative and educational, but always predicated upon "having fun with music".

I am proud to feature a curriculum that emphasizes the entertainment aspect of singing as well as the technical; created to benefit all ages and experience levels, from beginner to seasoned professional. After just weeks of my "Triple Threat Training" a student will begin to see astounding results: vocally, musically, and in the art of performance. I am excited to share my knowledge with you. Let's get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is equipped with a full vocal sound system with microphones that I utilize to teach the valuable art of mic technique. Young students enjoy using the mics and hearing themselves sing and perform. Since our lessons are predicated on enjoying the art of singing, this opportunity has proven invaluable. For the advanced performer, studying all aspects of amplification and what a singer should know about their stage sound is a part of our educational curriculum. My studio is furnished with the equipment that is essential to mastering that knowledge.
Since the practical aspect of my course is based on singing songs, I provide all the latest technology required to allow my students the opportunity to sing the songs of their choosing, with and without the lead vocal tracks. I feel that when students are singing their favorite songs, it offers me the greatest teaching opportunities. I make certain the every musical genre can be represented, and feel I have the knowledge and ability to guide the student is whatever their musical tastes. My studio is also equipped with piano (for vocal exercises), and guitars, which gives me opportunity to accompany my students when the musical moment is appropriate. Be assured that all the technology I need to fulfill the educational needs of my students is but a step away!!

Andrew C.

Henderson, NV

About Andrew

Andrew is a multi-instrumentalist (with focus on electric, acoustic, and nylon-string guitars, mandolin, banjo, and ukulele) from Pennsylvania that settled in Las Vegas with his wife in late 2013. After completing a music degree in Los Angeles in 2008, he spent one year in L.A., composing music for The Weather Channel (Atlanta Office), and backing a singer-songwriter that performed at local events and regularly on a few local TV and radio shows. In the summer of 2009 he and a few friends began working as orchestra and top-40 band musicians for a well-known cruise line. One contract grew int
o ten, eventually spanning five years, three cruise lines, and 70 countries, while playing different shows every night, from instrumentalists and singers to jugglers and comedians. Currently, Andrew is involved in a few diverse projects and shows in the Las Vegas area. He plays in a Motown and R&B-themed show every Tuesday and Friday at the South Point and Treasure Island resorts. He is also in an original band consisting of two members of Cirque du Soleil's "Zarkana" and one member of "Mystere." Since forming in September 2014 and playing various clubs in the area, the band was asked to perform with "Blues Traveler" on April 30th, 2015, and is booked to open their show at the Las Vegas Brooklyn Bowl in October 2015, with plans to be marketing a debut album by the time the performance takes place. Andrew also owns a music arranging company, and during 2015 notable clients include members of The Celine Dion Band and locally-famed singer Phil Flowers. He also performs in the band at a local non-denominational Christian church every Sunday. Recently, he has begun the filing process to start a non-profit organization to provide music lesson opportunities to children in the area from low-income families, especially if their school has eliminated a music program. The organization will eventually have a centralized location, be open seven days a week, and will be paying music teachers the full wage scale as outlined by the Las Vegas Musicians Union, in order to re-create some portion of the many work opportunities paying a musicians union wage-scale that have been lost in Las Vegas over the past decade. This will also allow musicians union members who teach at the non-profit school, to use their compensation to contribute to their own health care eligibility requirements, and pensions. During the lessons, Andrew uses the same software as his professionally arranged sheet music, to keep a journal for each student as they learn, and the journal is regularly emailed to the student as a PDF file. He also includes video examples on the take lessons website for every instrument that he advertises teaching, for the benefit of perspective students.

♪ If you want to...

1) Build a vocal technique that will not fail you

...then you have found the right teacher!

♪ ♪ ♪ LESSON DETAILS ♪ ♪ ♪
Most teachers "vocalize" or "warm you up" for 5 or 10 minutes and then the lesson is spent just singing through songs with no real emphasis on how to execute awe-inspiring and healthy singing.

Working with me is a truly distinctive experience, much like a workout with a trainer (Don't laugh becau
se I'm a little over weight!). We will spend the hour working on very physical and specific exercises to build a comprehensive technique that will support you through any genre of singing. At the end of each lesson, usually about 15 minutes, we can work on your chosen repertoire. Utilizing both vocalise and song literature that you choose, we will go through very pragmatic and utilitarian methods that will generate an easy, free and uniquely individual sound.

Studying with Zeffin is a true joy and and creatively inspiring experience. Learning from such a gifted and experienced singer/actor who really knows the demands and expectations of having a high profile operatic career is an invaluable experience. With the positive environment he provides through his uniquely original feedback, I feel I can push myself and explore the music I am singing without thoughts of self-consciousness or doubt that I have been struggling with in the past.Due to his immense enthusiasm about singing and acting Zeffin has been instrumental in helping me break old habits and build confidence. It's been a wonderful year and I heartily recommend Zeffin for any student interested in growing as a performer, artist and musician.

Zeffin helped me change my voice and performance style completely for the better! I had been studying musical theatre and operatic singing for nearly a decade when I met him and I learned more about my voice in the first month of lessons with him than I did in the years prior. He has an enthusiasm and passion for singing that is infectious and apparent in all of his students. And his way of explaining vocal technique is simple and easy to understand even for a beginner. If you're serious about singing and improving your voice, then Zeffin is a great choice for a teacher!

Classical Voice · In studio
Coming from a very unsuccessful experience with a previous voice teacher, Zeffin put me right, right away. Over the three years I have spent studying with him, I have felt my voice grow and become more secure in itself. Zeffin's technique teaches to play on the intricate connections between voice, body, mind, and sound. Now that I understand the physicality involved in singing properly, I know I'll never go back to my "old ways." It's strange to say, but I feel physically stronger and healthier after every lesson. As a guy and classical singer, I feel Zeffin's instruction is perfect for me. I've found Zeffin to be an incredible mentor and role model, and I know I'll have trouble trusting anyone else to achieve in me what he has. If I ever leave Zeffin, I might as well give up singing all together!
