The goal of training the voice is to create a strong, unified sound through the entire range of the voice. With regular practice and training, the quality of the voice will improve, the range will expand and you will become a more confident performer.

About Robert

A native of Chattanooga, TN, Robert T. has been hailed by critics as a “sonorous-voiced” bass-baritone with “rich tones” who creates “a solid foundation for the entire performance.” That’s the first sentence of my professional biography. I thought I'd use it to get the ball rolling. I was

Rob and Michelle are by very far the best voice instructors I've had and I have had several. They are both very personal and have a great approach to teach the fundamentals and take you along a great journey to become a better singer! I highly recommend them both to anyone interested in developing their singing abilities!

I absolutely adore working with Robert in preparation for my future in the voice and music industry. His technique and approach for both the voice and music theory is not only helpful but also fun. Under his instruction I'm both able to learn both technique on how to better my sound and the anatomy behind it. I enjoy going to voice twice a week and I always look forward to my lessons as they approach. I truly feel I am being prepared in the bests ways possible for my future as well as the most fun learning environment voice teachers have to offer.

I highly recommend Robert as anyone's vocal teacher! I'm very ambitious when it comes to what I want to accomplish with each lesson, and Robert has been very dedicated to helping me achieve my goals every week. He also pushes me to do better at each lesson, which is definitely a great motivator to keep up my practice and reach my goals faster! Whether you're at a beginner, intermediate, or advanced level, Robert will meet you at the level you are at and train you to become better!

Bgcheck Background Checked


I really enjoy my students and listen to them to understand how best they learn. The Piano Adventures books and I offer music kids are happy to play, music that encourages good technique from the beginning and builds valuable note reading skills. Together we explore supplementary books that offer popular music, jazz, classics, Disney favorites and more depending on the student's interests.Theory opens lots of creative possibilities on the keys and composing.
My students and I have a good time together and welcome the challenges that learning piano brings.

About Arden

As a life-long pianist, I was lucky to be able to pursue my passion of teaching piano full-time after my children went off to college. I have enjoyed teaching professionally for the past 10 years. I teach elementary and secondary education students the finer points of piano theory, performance

Miss Arden was our 3 children's piano teacher for 6 years and was an amazing teacher! We were so lucky to have found her when we moved to Miami. She is the most patient, kind and sweetest teacher who has taught our children a gift that they will cherish forever. They always looked forward to their weekly lessons and especially the holiday and end of the year recitals which Miss Arden made so special. She was also very flexible with changing lesson times if there was a conflict. Our kids loved having her as their piano teacher and we truly miss her!
We highly recommend Miss Arden for your teacher!!

Arden was my daughter's piano teacher for 4 years and she was amazing! She was extremely patient and encouraging. My daughter truly looked forward to her weekly piano lessons with Arden and was very disappointed when Arden moved away.

We used Arden when she lived in Miami to teach piano to both of my daughters. She is kind, compassionate and has an infectious love of piano. She was patient with both of them and flexible with our schedules. She knew exactly how to praise them for practicing and encourage them when they missed a week. Anyone would be lucky to have Arden as their piano teacher!

I have been playing guitar for 33 years and teaching since I was in high school. I majored in jazz guitar in college. I have taught guitar at the university and high school levels as well as privately to students from age 7 to 70. I am patient, kind and customize my lessons to various learning styles and aim to help my students stay motivated by helping them play music they really love from the beginning.
I would love to help you or your child become a better guitarist!

About Chris

I am a novice guitar player who knew a few basic chords before enrolling with lessons from Chris. Since i had an elementary knowledge of playing, Chris asked some questions before we got started on what I was struggling with, and hurdles i was facing.

From there each successive lesson we attacked those weak areas of my play. I was able to get incrementally better each week from the advice and handouts he offered, overall elevating my ability to play dramatically.

Chris is a very down to earth guy - and despite being an excellent musician was not even a little pretentious in carefully explaining concepts that were basic, but that i needed to know.

Overall, Chris takes the time to very effectively communicate how you can improve your guitar skills, and if you put in the practice from his instruction - you'll see the results.

He's also a nice guy and very easy to talk to.

"As a stage performer whose always wanted to learn how to properly sing, lessons were always on my mind. The decision to pick Rodolfo is one that I don't regret. He does a great job at interacting with students and tries to use real world examples to explain the instrument that we can't see, our vocal chords. This making the learning process much easier. He always comes set and ready with a lesson plan for the session. He also likes to check up on your progress in between session to ensure that you're executing the exercises correctly. Rodolfo is a person that cares about your success and progress. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's looking for vocal coach."

My 8 year-old daughter starting taking lessons with Lena only 3 months ago and she is already reading music and playing real songs. It's hard to believe she's learned so much in such a short time. Lena is extremely kind and patient, she keeps my daughter interested throughout the (30-minute) lesson by moving things along at a good pace, and she is serious but not scary (like my childhood teacher was). And her home, where she gives lessons, is very comfortable. I highly recommend Lena!"
