Tarsha P.

Millstone Township, NJ

About Tarsha

Tarsha began her study of music at the prestigious LaGuardia HS of the Performing Arts in NYC. There she was trained in Classical music and Theory. She then went on to Syracuse University to earn a Degree in Music where she majored in Voice and minored in Piano. Once Tarsha graduated, she continued to take private lessons while performing in pageants and talent shows around the NYC metro area such as "Amateur Night at the Apollo", and the "Ms. New York" pageant where she won the talent competition. Her biggest audition however, took place on the streets of Harlem U.S.A where an unafraid Tarsh
a approached world renowned rapper "Doug E. Fresh" and began to belt out a tune for him right there in the middle of the street! Doug E. wasted no time in signing Tarsha to his management co. and it wasn't long after that that Tarsha was signed by Tommy Boy records to record her first album. The album yielded the hit song,"Where I Wanna Be Boy" and set the stage for her next major move to Motown Records. It was at this time that Tarsha teamed up with other artists such as Busta Rhymes,Nas, Common, AZ, Big Pun, jazz legend Najee and Jahiem just to name a few. After touring and embarking upon a career in radio, Tarsha began teaching from her home. She had been hired by "Diddy" (Bad Boy Records) to come in and train some of his groups. She decided to share her knowledge of the music industry and to help train others to achieve their dreams.

Tarsha believes there is an artist inside all of us and her desire is to bring it out and let it SHINE! The lessons are all about the student and their desires. Whether it be training for an audition, preparing for a performance or simply training one's voice, the students needs will always come first. She takes great strides to ensure that the students have fun while working. Music should always be fun! Each student will be given their own specific type of lesson depending on their goal, but it will be fun, easy to learn and rewarding!!

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson will begin with stretching exercises and vocalizes. We will then move onto the chosen work of that day. We will break down the music first lyrically so that the student understands what their repertoire means and will gradually incorporate performance techniques. Each lesson will end with a recap of that days session and at home study will be given.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard and a tape recorder. They should provide any manuals or specific recordings we work on.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in R&B. I myself was an R&B singer from Motown Records (1996-2000) so i am familiar with the differences between singing for recordings and live singing. I have also toured so I am quite knowledgeable in maintaining one's voice while on the road. I have performed and taught how to sing with live bands as well as with electronic accompaniment.

A Great Learning Experience

Learning with Matt has given me much confidence in my singing. His excellent teaching skills gives me more confidence to perform, audition, and has indeed improved my vocal chords. Aside from just learning how to improve my singing, Matt has really been a great help on providing me information that I needed to know about Musical Theater, which I really appreciate his complete advice. With such a positive attitude, he thoroughly explains how to warm up the voice and pronounce every consonant/vowel. I, myself, can hear the difference when I perform songs as well as my family and friends. He is a tremendous teacher and I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn how to improve their singing and confidence.

Working with Matthew B.

Mr. Matthew B. is a very helpful and knowledgeable instructor. He goes through the passages of each lesson with me, points at the most complex areas and asks me to focus the practice on those when doing exercises. I am pleased to have Mr. Mathew B. as my piano instructor.

Charles is just great....there's no way I could have found a better teacher. Not only does he know everything there is to know about music, he's interested in keeping the lessons and learning interesting and fun. You can tell he really cares about trying to help his students to both progress, learn some theory, but to have fun and build skills they'll use/enjoy for a long time. Really impressive.

Charlie has been giving lessons to my son and is the absolute best! He is passionate about music and brings such energy to each lesson. My son is learning how to play jazz from Charlie after being classically trained. It has opened up a whole new world for him.

It great listening to the lessons because Charlie and my son enjoy music so much.

Charlie is the best piano teacher I have worked with. In just two months of taking lessons with him, I have learned myriads of info about music, theory, jazz, blues, and the classics. Being under his tutelage is truly an honor and he is patient with me even when I don't practice (Although I must say he's a real stickler for that). I would recommend anyone to him with a desire for music whether you are 5 or 55.

Maria is a fantastic flute instructor for my daughter Amanda. She has been teaching her for 5 years and I have seen such growth and improvement in her sound. Maria has a beautiful playing tone on flute, which I now hear in Amanda's tone. She is very patient and clear with her instruction. Amanda comes home after every lesson excited to share what she has learned during her flute lesson with Maria that day.
