About Stephenie
I earned my Theater and Dance degree from Chapman University in 1998, and moved to New York City where I spent 10 years pursuing a performing arts career, both in theater and as a singer/songwriter. I found minor professional success as a recording artist and studio musician, and performed in numerous off-off Broadway theater productions while teaching theater and dance to children at the Bronx Community Center and also private voice lessons in the recording studio.

Since becoming a mother I have been giving voice lessons from my home. I have had 3 of my voice students audition for X Factor and The Voice. I love to pass on what I know and what I've learned to the next generation of artists and performers.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is fun and energetic, lots of positive reinforcement but also high expectations to
do your best and be disciplined, especially when it comes to practicing at home. The only way to really learn is to do it!
Each lesson we will warm up, review technique and work on your current song or scene. Ideally you will build up a repertoire of material you have mastered and can perform.
After 3 to 6 months with me, you should be able to perform or audition with complete confidence and skills that will blow them away!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons supported with a full weighted keyboard and professional grade microphone, and computer for streaming karaoke instrumentals. Full PA system available.

*** Specialties ***
method acting
presentation acting (as in Shakespeare)
comedic timing
Broadway musical "belting"
opera vocal skills
pop singing
folk singing
songwriting skills
phrasing and theme
recording studio basics
proper microphone technique
general public speaking for professionals giving presentations

Stephanie makes our 10-year old daughter feel so comfortable. She actually loves learning more about singing and the few techniques she has learned has helped her immensely! Gianna does not worry about singing in a microphone or in front of people as much. She's so into it that she's singing and whistling more and more around the house! It's well worth the drive.

Stephanie is an amazing teacher!

In just a few lessons, Stephanie has taught Cassi so much about singing. She's knowledgable, encouraging, approachable and energetic. I'd recommend Stephanie to anyone!

About Adriane
For as long as I can remember, music has played a large part in my life. By the age ten, I already knew that music would be more than just a hobby for me, it would become my career. I have been singing for over 20 years, and began playing piano when I was eight years old. I received a BS in music industry studies with an emphasis on business, from the University of Colorado Denver in 2008. I have extensive experience in performance and the music industry as a business, and have had the pleasure of experiencing the local music scene first hand while playing in bands. My years of experience enables my students to learn different aspects of music from the fundamentals, to writing, and even the music industry as a business. Students should expect to quickly grasp the basic skills such as proper breathing and posture, and will start singing or
playing right away. I truly enjoy sharing my love of music and the industry with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music lessons should be fun but educational. I want to know what your goals are and what you would like to get out of your lessons. Each lesson will be tailored to your specific goals and situation, so that you can get the most out of our time together. Whether music is a hobby, a career path, or something in between, you can expect to learn what interests you most. We can focus strictly on your instrument, or even go beyond and talk about song writing, or the music industry.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano

*** Specialties ***
Singing- I specialize in the pop and rock genres, as well as show tunes.

About Nolan
I am a student studying Trombone performance at Ohio University through the Honors Tutorial College. I play in several ensembles across campus as well as performing in a low-brass trio semi-professionally.

Students can expect weekly practice assignments and a structured plan for improvement. My lessons focus primarily on the nuances of trombone playing, but will also cover setting goals, effective practice habits, maintaining motivation, related music theory, and the professional world of music. Students studying with me will not only gradually improve their instrument performance, but they will also be exposed to the successful musicians of our age and their teachings synthesized into a private lesson curriculum.

I want to help you harness your talent to improve your musicality and introduce you to one of the most inspiring art fo
rms in the world.

My son is severly dyslexic and Nolan has been amazing. We used a different takelessons instructor for 6 months before we found Nolan and the difference in my son amd his level of playing has been substantial. We have been with Nolan for about 7 months, he is kind, patient, and very knowledgeable.

About Victoria
I started playing the clarinet in the 5th grade and have been playing for 18+ years. I enjoy sharing my passion for playing the clarinet and enjoy teaching and looking for ways to help someone learn. I specialize in scales, fundamentals and general study for beginners (all ages).

I have performed with local (SEIBA), collegiate (Central College & University of Iowa), and state (Iowa) honor bands with the clarinet.

Lessons take place in my home office (in person or virtually); message me to see if this might be a fit for you.

Fun Facts:
* I have a rescue dog whose name was Princess in the shelter. I couldn't take her "title" away, so her full title is "Princess Molly of Merriam" - Call her Molly :)
* I also play the tuba, flute, marimba/bells, valve trombone & piano
* I love home projects
* Did you watch my video? You'll see
that I have worked with some pretty incredible accounts (work related, not music related)
* I took my passion for performing and let it help me pay for college!

I was passionate about electric bass when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off. I suggest doing the same! Let me help you get there quicker!
