I am passionate about ensuring that you are able to take on any vocal challenge you are faced with! I want to ensure that you are able to get any music job that you want or better yet...CREATE YOUR OWN!

Whatever your musical goals...large or small..I AM HERE TO MAKE SURE YOU GET POSITIVE RESULTS!

*** Lesson Details ***
Nicole's approach to teaching voice is very laid back.
She believes that if you have a rigid curriculum, you leave no room for individuality and creativity. Her goals are to assess your voice, listen to her students goals and needs and develop a plan based upon what her student wants coupled with her professional suggestions on areas that she feels need the most focus for development. This can change on a weekly or monthly basis. There is no set time to determine when you reach your desired goals, it is all about your development during the journey!

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, Classical, R&B, Soul, Neo Soul, Contemporary, Gospel, Christian, Hip Hop, Soul and more

Note- I also teach other skills such as acting, writing, speaking, skin care, studying etc.

About Marcel
I work as a tutor and mentor in many of those fields for years. It was and is a side business, but I always enjoyed teaching.
I am looking forward to move on with you and / or your kids.
Have a great day,
Marcel

Update 02/10/15: Takelessons is a great way to teach and a fantastic and easy way to learn for students. I currently have 3 students per week, with several hours. I really enjoy it, either online via Skype or Facetime or Live at the students place. Hit me up and let's move something together.

I did not actually take any lessons with him, but his schedule did not reflect what showed as available in Takelessons. He had a very bad attitude and would not actually schedule the lesson after several exchanges.

I need to improve my spoken German for business and Marcel has been invaluable in helping me improve at a good pace while being incredibly flexible on lesson planning.

I've been working with him for about a month now and I've grown to feel more comfortable speaking with my colleagues who are native German speakers.

If you want a native, professional teacher who can be fun...Marcel is your guy.

About Sylvia
Hello! My name is Sylvia and I'm here to help you learn a new skill or master it to a new level! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, at the public library, and online. I have loved helping my students with education classes such as mathematics, english, science, dancing salsa and cha cha, painting, illustrating fashion, sewing, computer coding, playing the violin, to personal training.

I have always had many interests and luckily I worked hard at them with great teachers to achieve great levels. I went to University of New South Wales and earned a degree in Software Engineering in 2003, and also Sydney TAFE to earn a Fashion Design degree in 2009.

I'm a friendly and understanding person and my teaching style is patient, motivating, and positive. I believe everyone
can achieve what they want with the right mindset and the right opportunity. My aim is to help you reach your goals and make you feel accomplished!

About Alex
I am a recent graduate of Northwestern University, where I studied theatre and marketing and filled my time with a variety of creative pursuits from musical theatre to makeup design. However, the most important thing I learned at school was that my true passion is sharing my creativity with others through teaching. I have multiple years' experience as a vocal coach, piano accompanist, music director, and audition prep advisor. I also tutor young adults in the ACT and other high school subjects both in person and online, and have seen marked success in my students' test scores. Through my experiences in the theatre, I have also acquired skill in both theatrical and beauty makeup, and feel comfortable passing on this knowledge to others.

I would love to work with you on any of these skills at whatever level would serve you best.

I truly believe beauty is everywhere; I love bringing out the beauty in every person, enhancing faces’ natural attributes. I have been described as very creative, and love thinking outside the box. As a freelance makeup artist, I am passionate about makeup and enjoy every aspect of it. I offer professional makeup services for weddings, photo shoots, runway, corporate and social events, Halloween makeup, and others. Personalized, corporate and/or fun makeup classes are also available.

About Angela
I am am an Arizona state trained Esthetician and makeup artist, from the Midwest. I've been interested in makeup ever since I was a teenage model for local and international hair magazines. One of my mentors, who I met while modeling, was an independent professional makeup artist. She taught me how to apply makeup that fit my facial features and skin tone.

I moved here in 2014, to pursue my dreams. I have a background in social work, so my passion is in helping others to feel their best, both inside and out. Makeup is just a way to help us highlight the beauty that already exists. Let's begin this journey together!
