I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

Hello! My name is Cathy and I have been teaching voice (singing) for over 30 years. But don't let that fool you into thinking I'm a stogy old girl who doesn't have a pulse on contemporary music. I teach pop, country, broadway, folk, whatever it is your interested in. I do teach with vocal exerc

Do you want to be a songwriter? An artist? Talent is one thing, the ability to maintain and grow that talent is another. In singing professionally for the last 15 years, I have found the number one reason most singers "go with their backup plan" is because they don't have the right training or confidence in their own ability. Within your first lesson, I will have you learning simple adjustments that can be mastered over time to make the biggest improvements! Breath support & awareness in how your body is creating your unique voice are the two key ingredients in building the confidence you need to improve!

About Erin

I take an unconventional approach to voice that’s guaranteed to improve your overall vocal quality and health. By focusing on the mental and physical connections to singing, I will help revolutionize your sound and your confidence. You already have a unique voice, I’m just here to make sure it’s he

Working with Erin is fantastic! She always brings such a positive attitude to our lessons, and is able to pinpoint the specific struggles I have with singing, and improve upon them in a constructive way. I've been taking lessons with her for over a year, and can't believe how far I've come! In addition to vocal skills I've developed a sense of confidence I've never had before. So thankful I found Erin!
Raquel
Erin is such a great teacher! In the short time I’ve been taking lessons with her, my vocal technique has improved by leaps and bounds. She is so knowledgeable and her instruction has helped me so much already! I cannot wait to see how much more my singing will improve as I continue to take lessons with her. I’m so very happy to have found her!
Caitie
Erin is a top notch educator who brings her a-game to every lesson. She is nurturing, insightful, charismatic and bold. She has brought out a great deal in my voice in regards to control and breath support. I am grateful for everything she’s taught me thus far!

Joseph resolved my immediate problem, and then launched into a more in-depth tour of my hardware and software. He is patient, thorough, has a huge knowledge base for creating digital music. He is able to optimize lesson time because he has mastered the tools and skills of online instruction. Thanks, Joseph!
Oliver
Joseph has been a great teacher. In just 5 lessons I feel like my understanding of Ableton and beat making has dramatically improved. So useful because it would have taken months to figure out all the stuff he taught me on my own. Highly recommend. I’ll be getting more lessons for sure.
Jamie
Joseph has been very patient with me . Teaching me at slower pace so I can remember all things in Ableton. I have been with Joseph for 2 months it's been great learning Ableton

I am a self taught piano player. I have been playing piano for a long time. Even so Anastasia has helped develop my technique further and some piano basics I have ignored (no youtube video teaches you so much)

Anastasia's knowledge is very intensive. She always has an answer for my questions be it basic or advanced questions.

Highly recommended

I am currently teaching most piano lessons online. I am also available for a few in-person lessons in my home studio, if certain safety precautions are followed... more about that at the end of this section.

Whether your lessons are online or in person, a typical lesson with me will include things like this:

-The student plays what they have practiced, and we work on any difficult areas and techniques for playing better.

-I introduce new lesson material, asking questions to make sure my student understands.

-We work on music theory, sight reading, good posture, and helpful practice techniques.

-I expect my students to practice every day, just as I do. It is the only way to become proficient.

- - - - - - - - - -

For online lessons, you may use the online platform provided by TakeLessons, or we can use Zoom. Most of my students are using Zoom.

You will need to order lesson books before your first lesson. Please contact me after you sign up to discuss

About Melody

My name is Melody Cook. I began learning to play the piano when I was five. My mother had a piano and some books. I loved the piano and I mostly taught myself. As an adult, I finally received professional musical instruction when I studied music at Valencia college and the University of Central

Melody is awesome! She was able to answer my myriad of questions at my first lesson and still had time to teach me new things that have really helped me. She was very personable, knowledgeable, and easy to talk to. I have no doubt she is going to help me become the best piano player I can be.

Very kind and patient with my daughter as she provided the instruction.

Extremely happy with Melody! She knows how to make little ones focus and work with joy and enthusiasms, on the theory and practice. All the time on time, those 45 minutes are 100% happy and learning time. Thank you!

Ms Teresa is awesome! She has taught my daughter how to play both Piano and guitar. I love that she actually teaches the music and explains things not just how to play the song!
Michael
I started trying to teach myself piano until I met Ms. Arth. On the very FIRST lesson she pointed out some bad habits and quickly resolved them. This allowed me to reevaluate my technique and iron out the basics. I plan on continuing my studies with Ms.Arth and I highly recommend her for any student beginner or advanced. Totally 💯 satisfied!!!!
Donna
Teresa has been amazing helping Lily learning piano. Her self esteem has grown so much. I love that the students learn multiple instruments.

"We’ve had a great experience with Brian as our son’s guitar teacher for almost three years. Brian is a patient instructor who has nurtured our son’s interest in music and has helped him to focus on the basics. He has enabled our son to explore the guitar an instrument and to instill an appreciation of how artists play it across genres. As a professional musician, Brian conveys a sense of presence and performance, which has been evident in the periodic recitals hosted for his students. Through the recitals, and the prep sessions for them, our son has learned to play both classical pieces and contemporary songs with a notable degree of poise and self-confidence."
