Private Singing Teacher

All ages are welcome. I am an experienced musician and educator with a B.M dual degree from Berklee College of Music, as well as a Master of Music Theory and Composition Degree in Scoring for Film and Multimedia from New York University.

I encourage learning with creativity and curiosity, which makes the lessons both fun and productive. I mainly teach voice, piano, music theory and composition lessons for all ages.

Besides these subjects, I also give lessons for ABRSM exam prep, college-bound musician prep, music theory placement exam, music history placement exam, ear training, arranging, orchestration, counterpoint, classical harmony, jazz harmony, Logic Pro, Sibelius and Pro Tools.

Formerly, I taught voice at City Music Mentoring Program in Boston, and worked as a music tutor at Berklee College of Music Learning Center for subjects such as harmony, ear training, arranging and counterpoint. As a music tutor, I was responsible for helping students, who were having trouble, ...

She was the great teacher for my son. She has helped my son to build up strong foundation on voice. She is kind and pleasant as well!

My 6yr old just took his first lesson and is hooked. Gigi is very sweet and stirred up an excitement in him. My son definitely liked the "idea" of learning the piano but is now confidant and actually writing his first song! Who knew, 5 notes and you can become a composer! BRAVO GIGI:)

Excellent job and I am looking forward to my son having more lessons
Adeline
We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!

Private Singing Teacher

I am a strong believer that every singer should have an opportunity to tell a story that is unique to their own voice. Through my own performances and studies, I have learned that no two singers are alike and thus no two singers should be taught in the same way. I will tailor my lessons to help develop each singer along their personal vocal journey and help them achieve their goals. With consideration for each singer's experience level and personal goals, I will cover a wide variety of skills including music learning methods, diction and language, vocal technique, musicality, and stage presence.

Ms. Iacovino was recently awarded the Nicholas Raimondi Family Vocal Scholarship at Casa Italia Chicago's 2020 Vocal Scholarship Competition. In 2019, Katlyn travelled to London to perform the role

Online Singing Teacher

While the foundation for all styles of singing is essentially the same, I specialize in teaching contemporary styles (as opposed to classical singing). Contemporary styles such as rock, pop, blues, gospel, country, jazz and Latin have very different styling than classical singing and as such once correct basic vocal technique is established it should be taught very differently than traditional classical singing. I'll help you get power,more range (to be able to sing higher and lower) pitch control (to sing mor ein tune), better tone, more musicality and versatility through a combination of exercises and learning the songs that you love.

About Ricardo

I have been a professional musician and teacher all my adult life. Music is my passion and has always been how I make a living. I teach piano/keyboards, guitar, voice, bass and ukulele. I studied classical piano at SUNY at Buffalo and I initially learned to play guitar and singing on my own. Years

"Erik is a gifted teacher. A true gem in the bay area - a bona fide master of voice and sound and his direction is spot on. He is precise and intuitive and FUN to boot. I have had so many 'a-ha' moments working with Erik - that I have found him to be nothing short of a treasure. And it's not just taking a class with him - it's the practice and music he gives you to take home. I am inspired to practice what he teaches because I see and hear the results. If you are serious about having fun while learning - his training and experience is GOLD. I am so grateful to have found him. Five stars and then some!"

"Amazing!

I came to Chelsea as a beginner vocalist. I was pretty clueless in many aspects of singing and have never felt comfortable singing in front of others. Chelsea helped me to come out of my shell and really analyze how the voice works, from basic anatomy to fun little tricks of the trade. She was extremely reliable and patient with my unpredictable schedule. I am so sad that I will not be in the Baltimore area any longer but I plan to continue working with Chelsea via Skype! She is just wonderful and has so much knowledge to offer any level of student. Thank you Chelsea!!"

6 Tips for Singing and Playing the Piano at the Same Time

Artists like Billy Joel and Elton John may make it look effortless, but singing and playing the piano at the same time takes time and practice to truly master! Understandably, it’s difficult because you’re multitasking by "playing" two instruments simultaneously – your voice and the piano. It’s easy to lose concentration on one, while the other goes a little off; if you focus on your voice, you might mess up the timing with your fingers, and should you pay too much attention to the p …
