Hillary T.

Asheville, NC

About Hillary

Hi, my name is Hillary and I am a singer, performer, and experienced voice teacher. I have over nine years of private and group voice teaching experience with students from ages 5-65, and over ten years of professional performing experience in the USA and internationally. I absolutely love teaching voice, and helping each student realize and develop their singing potential, while having fun along the way. I specialize in all types of singing repertoire and styles, and tailor lessons to each student's individual needs.

I graduated in 2014 with my Artist's Diploma in Vocal Performance an
d Pedagogy from the University of Miami, and previously graduated with my Master's of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Miami in May of 2013, where I was also a Graduate Teaching Assistant. I received my Bachelor's of Music in Vocal Performance from Houghton College in Spring of 2011. I currently am also a church musician and soloist, and sing and gig professionally in the Miami area as well as in NYC. Most recently, I moved to Asheville, NC where I am a private voice and piano instructor, as well as a music director at a church. I also teach and work with private clients as well as doing Masterclasses and performing with the Asheville Lyric Opera.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fun-loving and passionate teacher and my love for music and singing is engaging. I have extensive knowledge of repertoire and styles for all ages, and aim to create an inspiring lesson environment for my students to feel comfortable to learn and grow in our music together. Depending on the level and experience of the student, I always focus on the basics including breathing and posture. We then pick fun and varied music to sing that is age-appropriate, yet fun, and we will most likely be working on a few songs at once.

The first lesson with you, I will check in to see where you are already at in your vocal studies, and we will discuss your goals with singing, and what you are interested in singing. This helps me tailor the lessons to your needs and develop a direction of where we want to go. I will also ask you to sing a small part of a song you love and are comfortable with. This helps me develop a teaching plan to suit your voice and your needs. I want my students to feel comfortable in their lessons, in an honest and uplifting atmosphere.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The in-studio lessons are taught in a room with a piano, laptop for recording, music stand, seating, and a mirror. No pets. Parking is open and free.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They must have a piano or keyboard in the home, and preferably a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
Integrated approach to vocal teaching and Pedagogy... I believe in classical technique with varied voice repertoire and style- Classical, contemporary, pop, theater, jazz, etc. I also work with the individual on a personal level, on incorporating artistic and personal style into the music-making process.

She is wonderful!!
I was lucky enough to get Hillary as my vocal instructor and I loved it. She was very encouraging with my talent and pushed me forward to get better. It was also great to have the support of someone who is very knowledgeable of her craft and wanted to share that experience and let her students become better performers. She is what you want out of a vocal instructor because she is warm, kind, knowledgeable and knows exactly how to let your range expand.

Sucessful Artists come from Amazing Teachers

A year ago I didn't even think I could sing but through weekly classes with Hillary, I am now singing arias and broadway songs. I have also gained a confidence to perform that I would not have gotten from a teacher who does not invest time and effort to help their students grow. Hillary is the type of teacher that takes a vested interest in her students and their future, always there to lend support. She's a true teacher and I could not recommend her enough.

Laura S.

Asheville, NC

About Laura

Laura has taught throughout her musical career and loves nothing better than to introduce students of all ages to the magic of creating their own music. As a teacher, she focuses on a balance of inspiration and explanation. Inspiration: because if you don’t love your music, what’s the point? And technique: because if it’s easy to play and sounds good, you’ll keep coming back for more!

Laura has a BA in Violin Performance and a minor in American Roots Music from Berklee School of Music, has taught privately for eight years, and plays in several bands. Laura has taken firsts in her age divisi
on at several fiddle contests, including the California and Nevada Oldtime Fiddle State Champions, Western Open Championships and top 5 in the National Oldtime Fiddle Championships.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide sheet music for new tunes, stickers, and a basic fix-it kit for common instrument issues. I also try to keep backup books and a shoulder rest around at my studios so if someone forgets their equipment we can still make good use of the lesson.

I expect the student to provide their instrument, shoulder rest/end pin stopper, notebook, device for recording music, folder/binder for loose papers, and books. I don't require lots of books - just ones you'll really use.

*** Travel Equipment ***
See Studio Equipment, above.

*** Specialties ***
I love oldtime, bluegrass, country and celtic fiddle - most of what I do as a performer fits in along those lines. I teach Suzuki method violin as well. My Suzuki teacher learned directly from Shinichi Suzuki!

I also enjoy introducing a variety of instruments and styles to beginners of all ages - patience and enthusiasm make even the most beginning of songs a wonderful, worthwhile accomplishment!

Laura is wonderful! She's totally inspired my daughter, who now walks around the house playing all our favorite fiddle tunes. There was one piece my dad in particular loves (Truck Drivin' Man) and Laura wrote it out for us. My daughter played it for her granpa's birthday, it was so sweet!

John C.

Brevard, NC

About John

Hello, my name is John C. and I am very excited to meet you! I've been teaching Logic Pro since 2010. I have been using Logic since version 8 and now use Logic Pro X for my own production work. I absolutely love helping others learn the stuff that allows them to work efficiently while creating the music they love. I love it when they get to the point where they are not battling the software but rather using it as an instrument. I went to Berklee College Of Music and earned a degree in Songwriting in 2014 and am also an Apple Certified Master Pro in Logic Pro 9. I'm a gentle spirited man who wi
ll move at your pace, whether that be the forever victorious tortoise speed or Star Wars warp speed.

I believe that learning from a point of interest for the student is very important, so our lessons will not be filled with a bunch of book reading or lessons that may or may not connect with you as a student, but rather I will learn what it is you love and would like to do with your studies and then model the lessons around that. You will certainly be given things to work through and practice, but it will be within an interesting and enticing framework which will not feel like homework. Let's have some fun and learn!

As an aside, I have more than 16 years of professional experience as an IT technician / Programmer so you can rest assured that technology will not be a roadblock in any way as instruction takes place.

I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Shurajit is an expert in the venerable tradition of Carnatic music. He takes care to make sure that I'm doing things correctly, whether it is sight reading, pronunciation, counting talam and, of course, vocal rendition. He will never cut corners! Yet all is done in a spirit of joy and respect for the student whatever their cultural background or level. As an adult student, born in the US, who had no prior experience with Carnatic vocals, I find that the challenge of learning this rich and complex music is exciting and fun. I have deep respect for the spiritual traditions with which it is infused. Shurajit is an excellent communicator, he cares about his students, and he enjoys teaching. I highly recommend Shurajit as your first call if you are thinking about lessons for your child or for yourself.

Shurajit Gopal is by far the best Carnatic vocalist and teacher in South Carolina, perhaps the best in the Southeast of US. I live in Columbia, SC but I drive to Greenville every weekend to learn Carnatic vocal music from him. Although he offers Skype lessons for remote learners, face 2 face lessons is invaluable and worth every bit of it. Shurajit gives his all to a dedicated, devoted student and takes a very personal interest in the student's technical development. He makes sure that the student never goes off key and that he/she maintains clockwork precision on Talam. Shurajit makes learning Sangathi-variations so much fun. Sometimes when the variations don't land on the beat as it is supposed to, he devices creative methods so students are able to pick it up. It's like the American Idiom "there are multiple ways to skin a cat". Furthermore, I admire Shurajit because he is very personable and approachable. If you desire to be an "authentic" carnatic singer, @shurajit is the place to go.

my daughter and I had classical training for 4 years and really enjoyed his lessons, we learned a lot of songs and learned how to sing, my daughter being young benefited more and every time she auditioned for a musical , she ended up with the lead role!. I highly recommend anyone who wants to sing or wants to train their voice to consider him, the kids love him and so do the adults -he is a great teacher and wonderful person to know!

Kendra R.

Hendersonville, NC

About Kendra

I have a love of music that never grows thin. My studies initiated with a purely classical approach leading to the scholarships I received to further my education. Performing with various orchestras, musical theater, opera, and small ensembles fulfilled my childhood desires. Later in my career, I expanded my studying and performing in other musical genres that have included jazz, rock, blues, folk, latin and many more. Working with various talented musicians encouraged a new line of study in improvisation I hadn't acquired during my classical studies and performance. Provided with the opp
ortunity to study, perform, and record in classical and alternative styles has only increased my love of music and ability to reach my students at a more personal level.

Kendra has been tutoring one of my daughters for about 2-1/2 years, and tutored my other daughter for about 6 months. We have been extremely pleased with the progress they both have made working with Kendra. She is very good at identifying where a student needs to make corrections and does it in a way that is positive and easy to understand. She is excellent at helping students find their own voice - interpreting the music and infusing creativity and meaning into each piece. We really appreciate how she has individualized her teaching approach to each of my girls' needs and goals, and how she is always positive and enthusiastic about their progress. When Kendra moved out of state, we opted to continue lessons with her online rather than find a new local teacher because she has been (and continues to be) such a great instructor. I highly recommend Kendra as a violin/viola teacher.

3 Alternate Tunings Every Guitarist Should Try
Did you know tuning your guitar a different way can open up tons of new possibilities in your playing? Guitar teacher James W. shares three of the most popular alternate guitar tunings you'll want to explore... It is estimated that singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell created over 58 open tunings for guitar in her quest to create new songs over the course of her 50 year career in popular song. She was able to be remarkably inventive in her playing simply by experimenting with the guitar’s tuning.
The Spaghetti and Meatballs of Singing in Italian
As a singer, you'll come across songs in Italian or other languages that are great to practice and perform. Here, Pittsburgh, PA teacher Jennifer V. shares her tips for tackling songs as you learn to sing in a foreign language...   Imagine walking into a voice lesson and your teacher casually places a book on the table that reads “24 Art Songs”. You open the book to see where the pretty pictures of paintings are and… you see a bunch of unknown words. Your teacher gives you a big smile
Strategies for Sight Singing
It may seem like instrumentalists have it much easier when it comes to sight reading music; by simply pressing a key or a string, the notes are immediately available to them without any additional thought, and all that’s left to them is to work out duration, dynamics, and tempo. Singers, on the other hand, don't have an instrument to rely on. Taking a song previously unknown to you and delivering a reasonably accurate performance the very first run-through isn’t a talent that everybody has.
