I am passionate about arts education for all people and my mission is to educate as many people as possible about the benefits about consistent music
I enjoy time away by traveling, walking, reading, fixing up my house, and spending time with friends.
*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor each lesson to the individual. I believe in a solid, vocal foundation in order to sing in any style. Daily vocal exercises, breathing exercises, and healthy tone production are the basis for my teaching.
Learning to sing requires knowledge about the vocal instrument and the musculature involved.
Acting exercises are also incorporated into the text analysis of each song in order to fully understand the meaning behind each song.
Each student should record their weekly lessons in order to review instruction and also to help with acquiring accurate listening and pitch skills.
Music should be purchased and brought to every lesson.
I tailor each lesson to the individual. I use a variety of methods: Faber and Faber, Alfred Premier, Succeeding at the Piano. The lessons involve ear training, written theory, rhythm recognition, and songs (repertoire). My goal is to teach a well rounded musician equipping with the tools necessary to enjoy music for a lifetime.
Daily practice, attention to details, and enjoying the music are my goals for each lesson.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Ipad and laptop for special assignments or supplementary activities
PA and microphone for Advanced students preparing for auditions and competitions.
*** Specialties ***
Classical Voice, Popular Styles, Jazz, Musical Theatre, Opera, Church Music.

I've been bringing my kids to Renee for 4 years. She has a great way of relating to the kids and I appreciate her dedication and discipline.
She has a lot of resources and always is sending my kids home with extra materials to help them learn about music reading.
Not only is she a great teacher, but she can actually play and sing at a professional level. My kids are going to be with her until they graduate from high school!

I have been teaching private lessons for 14 years and work with students of all experience levels. I am available for in-person lessons for students living in or traveling to Manhattan, and I am also available for online instruction.
Contact me today to schedule a lesson. I look forward to hearing from you.
I have been helping students discover ease and joy in singing for over ten years, and in many different styles. Each journey is different, but I am certain I can help you accomplish your goals. No two voices are alike, and we will work together to discover your particular strengths. Expect to laugh and have some fun along the way!!!
Working with the physical structure of your face and body, we'll uncover ways to free you FROM yourself. Many bad vocal habits are learned through everyday life - together we can identify these to bring you closer to the optimal function of your voice. I will provide a foundation of knowledge for effective breathing and posture, as well as fill your 'toolbox' with many practical methods to alleviate tensions and encourage optimal resonance. As I am an active professional singer

I also feel that I can apply the vocal technique Alex teaches to the many different genres of music that I sing (opera, musical theater, gospel, etc.)
Would highly recommend Alex!! He’s a gem!

In gist, here's are the skills I can teach you exceptionally well:
- Music Production
- Drumset / drumming
Before we get into my lesson structure, a little about me and why I know I can help. Why should you listen to me if I don't know my background? :)
I am a full-time music producer, musician, and DJ. I started playing percussion in 6th grade, which was 14 years ago. Since then, I've literally immersed myself in music about as much as you can!
I've competed in honor and all-state band for 7 years in a row throughout middle and high school, was 1 of 6 awarded into the Governor's Honors program for percussion in 2010, and was the only recipient of a jazz drum set scholarship at Georgia College in 2011. Our high sch
As far as music production goes, it's now my main focus. I started learning the ins and outs of music production in high school in 2010. Since then, I've taken courses in music technology throughout college, made music as a hobby, then took the full leap in January of 2016. I'm on the journey now and since that time I've had some pretty amazing things happen. I produce music almost every day, so everything you learn from me is what's current and what works!
Music has always been my life. I was INCREDIBLY lucky to have been fostered and taught by some of the most passionate and selfless music teachers in the state. Now that I am old enough to realize it, they literally shaped my life and helped me become the person I am today. What if I can give back in the same way and help students learn to discover what they truly love?
Flash forward to today and I'm hustling harder than ever. After graduating from The University of Georgia in 2015 with a degree in Management and Music Business, and a minor in Music Technology, I am a full-time, touring music producer and DJ. I reside in Virginia Highlands (very safe, family-friendly area) in Atlanta and have my own house, studio, and drum set, in which I can tutor you. In person - or online!

Minored in Music Technology at The University of Georgia.
What I know and can teach:
- Producing tracks start to finish

- Using legal samples in your music to help you
- Mixing your tracks

I've been through a lot of work and stressful times to figure out what works and what doesn't. Let my experience be of benefit to you, so that I can shorten your learning curve :)
I've written an article on music production workflow that was published by Heroic Academy. A record label named Gravitas Create interviewed me recently, regarding how to finish music. I can send those to you if you want.
Years of teaching experience: 1
Years of career experience: 3

That's when I found Joey - and this guy knows his stuff. He's been producing for a few years now and after listening to his music, I could tell he was the real deal. I just started my lessons not long ago, but so far he's helped me in Ableton tremendously. I'm able to understand the various plug-ins, create new sounds when I get that creative "spark" instead of just bumbling around, and now I can actually finish a song.
I fully recommend Joey, he's super patient and has made this process just so much easier for me.

I have been performing music for 20 years and have taught for over 12 years, privately and to groups of over 50. You can become a great drummer at any age; I have experience and am very comfortable working with 5 year olds all the way up to 60! Let's get better together!
As a teacher I am always learning and I love sharing that experience with my students. Lets hit things and make music!!
