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 and 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 ot
hers. 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.

Morgan L.

Hickory, NC

About Morgan

My philosophy is simple, to provide quality music education to adults and children of all ages for an affordable price. Everyone deserves a good musical education, but money should not be the deciding factor when a child or adult wants to take lessons.

I believe that music instruction should be enjoyable, built on a solid technical foundation, inspire creativity, and match each individual's goals.

Learning an instrument -€” like the piano, for instance -€” has many proven benefits. Playing music both assists in children's development and enriches the lives of adults.

I highly recommend Dwight to anyone looking for a "hand up" to your next level!
