About Celeste
Hello! I am an active operatic performer and teacher, currently residing in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. My mission as a teacher is to help students from the beginner to professional, learn to sing in a fun and enriching environment. I hold a bachelors degree from Millikin University, and have recently earned my Master's degree from Bowling Green State University. I was very involved in the opera theater programs at both universities and have performed such roles as Cherubino from the Marriage of Figaro, Mother from Little Red Riding Hood, Most Fiordiligi from Mozart's "Cosi fan Tutte." Most recently, I was in Austria taking part in an intensive operatic training program for the emerging professional singer, while under the guidance of world renowned Russian baritone Vladimir Chernov.

As a teacher, I believe singing is an exciting journey o
f learning, musicianship and artistry. I have most recently taught in Jerry City, Ohio for Elmwood Jr./Sr. High School, and have also been active for the past six years as a master class instructor for St. Peter's Lutheran Church, located in Ft. Wayne, IN. I am very happy to be working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
You will find my teaching methods rewarding, enriching and exciting as you grow and learn. Students will be encouraged to take their own individual journey in singing. You can expect to work on diction, theory, breathing, and developing a general healthy technique.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano and CD player. There is also seating for parents who wish to sit in on lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained singer and most of my training is in art song and opera. However, I do have a vast knowledge of musical theater literature and I would feel very comfortable in that genre. I am also well versed in choral literature and gospel.

About Andy
I have a degree from Berklee College of Music. My Majors were Guitar Performance and Contemporary Writing & Production.
I have taught hundreds of students over the last 15 years.

My lessons are all about you and your progress!
I design practice plans tailored to your specific needs.

We can go through my complete introductory guitar course if you want. The course is for complete beginners. If you finish it, you will have a very strong foundation of music theory and guitar skills.

After this course, you will be at an intermediate level and we can start to focus on specific areas of your choice. We can work on sight reading, rhythm, chords, or any technique and style you would like to master.

My goal is to get you fast results and to make the experience of learning the guitar as fun as possible. In my lessons, you will get pdf
files of all the material as well as jam-tracks and backing tracks for exercises.

No better guitar teacher than Andy Mueller. I began with him when I was 10, and was able to progressive extremely because of his knowledge and methods of teaching. I am now 21 living in Paris, playing gigs and still remember and have all those sheets of scales he gave me years ago!

Anyway, hope all is well. If I ever find myself back in Dallas I will make sure to give you a call.

Andy taught both of my sons guitar from the time they were 10 and 13 until they both graduated from high school. He is an amazing teacher! Andy had both boys playing simple tunes from the very first lesson, which was so much more effective than teaching tedious scales and theory. They were hooked right from the beginning and continued to improve rapidly with Andy's method of teaching new material and styles, as well as reading music and advanced theory as their skills improved. Andy is very talented, patient, organized and creative in his ability to come up with new and interesting ways to learn. Both of my sons still play guitar. Andy has instilled in them a love of the instrument that will be with them for life. I give him 5 stars and recommend him highly! Melissa Auberty - Dallas, Texas

Excellent online teacher. Her communication skills are superb and her ability to break down the steps for playing the cello are very easy to comprehend and then apply. She is organized and responded very quickly to my pre-lesson questions. Great online lesson experience.

Our child has taken cello lessons but has not learned to "shift" or even what the word means. Amy's first lesson provided exact instructions, repeated until the knowledge was easy to bring back. Our child is extremely happy with what was taught and commented, "I really want to practice my music now that I can tell if I'm doing it right." Thank you, Amy! You are an amazing teacher! Patient, kind but funny as well! Thank you for always taking the encouraging route. Your positive energy is very catchy!

About Sam
Hi!
I'm a recent graduate of Berklee College of music where I majored in professional music. This included music theory and guitar instruction, as well as reading and writing music notation and charts in different styles. I also play frequently around the DC area, including shows at The Howard Theater, Shamrockfest, The Black Cat, The Bullpen at Nats Park and Gaylord National resort.
For the past three years I have been teaching guitar lessons to student of all ages, with excellent results! I always keep the students interested by teaching songs they are excited to learn, while also making sure that they continue to grow as a guitarist and musician. Lessons can be in Rock, Jazz, or Pop styles, and on acoustic or electric guitar. Music theory is included to the extent that the student and/or parents are interested. Lessons can be at my h
ouse or yours.
Thanks!
Sam

About Dia
After singing and performing for nearly my entire life, I have been in many musical projects and performances, including ongoing collaborations with Stuart Bogie ( Antibalas, Iron and Wine, Arcade Fire), and Joe McGinty (Psychedelic Furs, Nada Surf, Loser’s Lounge). I have sung with abandon in indie hot spots like Brooklyn Bowl, performed tributes at festivals like Mountain Jam, and traveled like a gypsy--honoring my desire to live a creatively full and wonderfully strange life.

In New York, I learned a holistic approach to vocal work from a combination of private instruction and master classes from my voice teacher, Kate Baker, hailed in many circles as “The Voice Whisperer.” I studied creative writing in the Colorado mountains with Dr. Clarissa Estes, New York Times Bestselling author of “Women Who Run with the Wolves,” and I g
raduated from New York University’s Steinhardt school with a BFA in painting and performance art.

I know firsthand that voice work is an incredibly personal and individual experience. Many of the challenges we face in the voice, are also challenges we face in our lives, be it an outmoded fear or a way of approaching technique that may need shifting. Either way, I am here to be your support, your sounding board, and your teacher to help you move past what may be hindering your creativity or your voice and move you into a place of healthy expression.

All the best, and may your voice be true!

Mr. Caskin was my instructor for 3 years in a concert band setting. Under his guidance I constantly felt challenged, but also constantly improved. In those 3 years he made me a better musician than I ever thought I was capable of being. He is not only an efficient and effective teacher, but also a genuinely amazing person who is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Tim Caskin!

I was very lucky to have been taught by Mr. Caskin for my entire high school career. I was in his high school band class during his first four years on the job and had the pleasure to watch him grow as both a musician and a teacher. Mr. Caskin's innate musical talent is undeniable---his passion for music and positivity resonates throughout every session.

During my senior year, I had an independent study with Mr. Caskin. He helped me grow, not only as a percussionist, but also as a piano player as well as a songwriter. As a student who has always had the passion of pursuing music as a career from a young age, Mr. Caskin went above and beyond what can be expected from a high school band teacher to not only mentor me, but he also guided me in the right direction. In fact, Mr. Caskin was one of the reasons I pursued music into my secondary education, as he was always very supportive of the idea, and helped me through the process.

Mr. Caskin is an incredible teacher and mentor--anybody would be lucky to learn from him, as he is certain to bring the best out in any student he instructs!!!
