I take a holistic approach to teaching voice. When you sing, your entire body is your instrument, which means that you have to be attuned to your whole body to produce the healthiest, most organic sound. I've been teaching for 13 years, and in that time I've leaned lots of different methodologies. I use a combination of knowledge from my classical training in conjunction with yoga, mindfulness and real world experience to give my students the best path forward in their musical journey. Whether you're just starting out or already a working professional, with my guidance and teaching you'll be making healthier and freer sounds.

I teach guitar from a wide background in many genres. You can expect to learn chord and scale theory, as well as mechanics, tone control, note and key identification, and ear training. We can explore any genre of interest, however my specialties are in blues, rock, classic rock, bluegrass, and country.

About Richard

Music is my life. Since the age of 16, I have studied the guitar extensively. During my high-school years I was involved in band, marching band, choir, and independent music theory. I started my first band when I was 19 in the U.S. Army, and my life has never been the same since. I played music

Study with an experienced teacher and an award winning performer. Sing for fun or prepare for performances, exams, and auditions. I specialize in students ages 15+ and teach in a variety of styles ranging from Opera, Classical repertoire, Music Theatre, Gospel, and Popular song. My vocal technique stems from a foundation of good breath support, resonance, and body alignment. I create a supportive and encouraging environment but will challenge each student according to their level.

As a singer, I've performed with the Royal Opera House; Finnish National Opera; Opera Theatre of Saint Louis; The Dallas Opera; Birmingham Opera Company; San Diego Opera; Deutsche Oper Berlin; and Festival d’Aix-en-Provence to name a few.

I hold degrees in Music Education, Vocal Performance, and Opera Performance from Stetson University (BME), Boston University (MMus), the New England Conservatory of Music (GDip), the Royal College of Music International Opera School (ArtDip), and currently ...

About Tai

I am a professional singer specializing in operatic repertoire; however, I am equally comfortable in other genres having grown up singing gospel, pop, and everything in between. I have sung with companies such as the London Handel Festival; Innsbruck Festival of Early Music; Finnish National Opera;

Students of all ages in a personal relaxed atmosphere.
Customized to each student. If the student has not previously taken lessons I use Piano Adventures as the basic course guide. I have found it the most productive and enjoyable for my students. I uses a minimum of the Lesson and Theory book for my younger students with either the basic course or Accelerated course depending on their age and maturity. Adults begin with the All In one adult book. I add the other books that accompany each level based on the particular students needs and interests. I believe that a good grounding in Theory is essential as a student who becomes proficient in sight reading, no matter how well he/she plays by ear, will find that the doors for lifetime musical fulfillment with be much wider. However, with a student who has already had some lessons I will be happy to continue with any method that the student is currently using.
I also believe in supplementing the Piano course with the student's favorite ...

Kathy came to my home for my lesson. She has a very pleasant personality and it is very easy to follow her instructions. She kept the pace up, yet did not overload me.

"Alexandra is excellent! She is a true professional with a real passion for teaching. I began seeing Alexandra for vocal lessons a few months ago and I have learned so much more then just the basics of speech.

She not only gave me a solid foundation to build upon, but also provided me with a deep understanding about how powerful and personal voice work really is. Together we have worked on both the inner and outer aspects of my voice. After only a short time, I have seen a huge improvement in my vocal projection, breathing, presence and confidence.

She has a wealth of knowledge which has continued to give me new insights every lesson. If it isn't obvious- I highly recommend Alexandra."
