Janetta D.

Huntersville, NC

About Janetta

Many of my students not only learn to sing, they also learn to write their own songs and record. However, if you want to learn to sing, we can do that. I have two Master's degrees, one in education a
nd one in supervision. So I understand how students learn. I have been teaching over 10 years. My training took place with very special teachers, people who write, and sing for a living. Jai josel who worked for RCA, Jason Blume, who wrote for Brittney Spears, and Stephen Schwartz who wrote the Broadway Musical, Wicked. My singing teachers include Van Christy, Roger Love, Rosemary Bulter and others. Recently I completed an album of 12 original songs. I have a website which I will share with you after you enroll in my class.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every thing is a skill. Singing is skill-based. We even have a skill that tells you what to do when you are nervous. Skills have a name, a purpose, a procedure and a time and place for use. So they can be retrieved when needed. After 3 to 6 months a student should be able to understand their singing anatomy. the four stages of breathing, sing correctly, understand the role focus plays in singing, understand the role of scales, and many other skills. The lessons are entertaining and informative. I develop the total student.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music room with keyboards, and computer. Parents can sit on lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I developed a course called Commercial songwriting and Music Psychology. I teach songwriting as a skill base course of study that can be easily learned like other professions. I teach one to write in all genres and to write to todays trends. We use a process that develops a song from concept to finish song product. My students learn to write albums from songs written in class.

Ethan A.

Lincolnton, NC

About Ethan

My name is Ethan A. I love music more than anything else in this world. It is my passion and art. I have always enjoyed it, and have been playing music myself for nearly 9 years. The main thing I am g
ood at teaching is guitar. I can teach various styles and genres, techniques, and many aspects of music theory along the way. The way I teach is an aim to make it very simple, easy and understandable to students. I can have students go a long way in understanding music and guitar in just 1 lesson! I also have experience with piano and SLS (Speech Level Singing) vocal technique, and am a singer myself. My main passion is singing, though as far as teaching and instructing, I mainly teach guitar and music theory in general. I have helped several people unlock abilities in music and guitar specifically before.

If anyone would like music lessons with me, I am widely available. I prefer to do lessons over Skype, but can drive to places within the Charlotte area in North Carolina. I look forward to working with many students and helping them unlock guitar and musical skill. :)

Dwight M.

Hickory, NC

About Dwight

I began playing guitar at age 5 1/2. I learned to read music at same time as learning to read written words. I studied cello briefly through the 7th grade. I took up upright bass to play in the high s
chool jazz band. I majored in double bass in college, earning Bachelors degrees in Music Education and Music Performance, including two years as the recipient of the Alyse Smith Reynolds Performance Music Scholarship. I spent six years on the road with The Graphic and 3 years with jazz rock trio Toys Don't Hate. I have had the honor of performing with jazz artists Clark Terry, Zoot Sims, Eddie Daniels, Marian McPartland and Dave Brubeck and others. Several of my students have gone onto touring bands and some are 1st call players in New York and LA.
