I love to sing (yay!) and am a professional singer/songwriter and a vocal coach & have been for many years. Named a top vocal coach in Backstage Magazine, I have coached beginners to pros, children to adult, whether they want to perform, record, just enjoy/fun or eventually pursue a serious singing career. My students have gone on to tour, get signed, do musical theatre (amateur & professional) or just enjoying singing freely with a great technique. I am considered encouraging and warm (see my reviews), but also know what it is to be at a level where you consistently sound great! This is my focus and is very encouraging to students. They will see themselves making progress and reaching set goals! I am an expert in pop technique (no opera or classical, sorry!), and work with students to preserve and take care of the voice. In lessons, we w
ill also have fun learning popular songs (from current hits to classic pop & rock) and look for opportunities to sing them. From pop to rock to R&B to country & more, students can explore their faves! Whether you or your child is a beginner, just-for-fun singer or singer/songwriter to pro, each student will be able to learn the skills they need to sing from their heart, find their own true voice and for serious singers, take it to the next level.

Children Voice lessons build confidence and enthusiasm, and help prepare children for performing in front of others. Singing at a young age develops vocal abilities, but more importantly develops a child's aural abilities (recognizing melodies, harmonies, etc.) as well as the ability to focus, take direction and be creative.
Performing / Recording / Vocal Health Recording, performing and touring presents unique challenges to singers. By concentrating on breathing, vocal tone, vocal production and tension reduction, warm-up exercises, and range building exercises, these lessons help increase stamina, build vocal tone, and reduce the effects of vocal fatigue for those who sing long hours at a time.
Church / Worship Leading Singing on praise/worship teams is an art form all of it's own. Lessons centered around this kind of singing focus on the areas of blending, tone, hearing harmonies, and keeping your part in a group. For the soloist / worship leader, lessons help in the areas of projection, tone, range, runs, and breathing.

*** Lesson Details *** We begin with what we love. The student usually chooses one of his or her favorite songs to interpret. Later, we add music, usually from the classical or jazz fields, that build our skills and help us f
eel successful. All technique is based on real music. Learning scales, keys and music theory become part of the music. By the end of 6 months, we will have a "repertoire" of several songs that express our best self!

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 exercises because without them no changes will be made and that's the whole point right to change your voice? However you do get to sing songs. I teach, so that you will change your voice and succeed in whatever avenue you want. My degree is in Vocal Performance from Northeastern Illinois University and one year of Masters work in Drama from DePaul University.
I also teach ESL, Reading, Writing, History which I have done for the past ten years. I use a variety of techniques since no two people are alike to help you learn English or the Ameri
can lifestyle. I presently teach Caterpillar employees, spouses and children. Let me teach you and see how far we can go.

I will be attending ISU to study music therapy I currently attend FAU and study trombone performance I have performed with the all state band 2015-2018 I have also performed with the all district band 2015-2018 I have attended solo and ensemble district and state level and only getting superiors. My sophomore year I received an award for my musicianship at my high school's award ceremony. My senior year I earned an award for my musicianship at my school's band banquet. For FAU I have performed with the commencement band I was also principal trombone in the Florida youth orchestra. I have been principle player of with wind ensemble band in my high school. I have worked with them to make sure music sounds good. teaching them rhythms and improving intonation. My passion is working smart and hard to teach kids and young adults how to be the
best versions of themselves. While being a good musician is important, it is also important to constantly improve discipline and maturity.
I am a professional singer, pianist, and photographer. I studies at EIU with a Bachelors of Music, specifically voice and piano.
Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.
I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for over 20 years, and jazz piano for part of those years as well. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.
Some of my past students have gone on to study music in col
lege themselves and become professional musicians.
My personal passion is classical piano music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
Teaching means the world to me. Music has been transmitted from generation to generation during the whole history of humanity and to keep music alive, we need people to be fully dedicated to transmitting what they learned to keep music growing, and to empower people to believe in themselves and that they can be apart of this amazing journey! First of all, I play because it's fun, and when I teach, I want the student to have as much fun as I do. I love to create a safe learning space where you can feel comfortable to make mistakes, learn about them, laugh about them, and get better every time. I do put an important value on work ethic ( not that I will want you to practice 10 hours a day ), but it is very important to understand that a good practice routine is necessary to get better and to have fun. We will learn many genres and of course
, focus on what YOU want to learn. I played in many bands from Rock to HipHop and Jazz, so we can cover a lot of different genres and styles of playing Like I said earlier, my teaching is very centered on playing, and less centered on books because to me the best way to learn music is to play by ear and to learn how to listen. I highly value playing over songs to get to develop your drumming skills, going to concerts to study the greats, and ultimately having the student to play in a band. I will teach you basics and rudiments, but very quickly I will show you how to use those in a creative and fun way, so that your appetite for learning more keeps growing. I would love to meet you and get you closer to your drum dreams !
Being a first time drum student , I took lessons with Clement and he was so patient and really helped me build the confidence that I needed. Although I'm only playing for a hobby, I feel as if I can now call myself a drummer thank you to the guidance as well as the standard that Clement held me too. Also great hip hop producer!
August 31, 2019
After having taken some lessons online with various instructors, it is clear to me that Clément has been my best experience. Learning drums online was never easy but I am very busy so that's my only option, and he made sure that I always understood him clearly, sent me some exercises to practice after classes and always encouraged me and made me believe in myself. Still take lessons to this day and now I have my own band ! Thanks Clem :) !!
August 31, 2019
My kid had never felt so encouraged by someone!
Clem's method is impeccable and clear. I have attended to some of the lessons and I was as excited as my son to learn ! He makes it fun to learn and that was the best experience we've had so far.
"A really excellent teacher. We are lucky to have her. 😄"
"Natasha is professional, creative, generous, kind, and incredibly talented! Not only is she very good at describing what she wants musically, she is clear
and consistent about scheduling and rehearsals."
"I have been taking lessons from Frank for many years through the Middletown Adult Education program. I could not have asked for a more knowledgeable, expe
rienced and dedicated teacher. When he is teaching, Frank has the unique ability to be able to use a variety of ways to show each person exactly what they are supposed to do. And, he is so patient while he's doing it. I have learned so much under Franks exceptional teaching and am looking forward to learning more."
"Fun, Patient and Knowledgable. She is the best teacher so far! Glad we found her when my son needed help!"
"After the first lesson alone I learned so much and she helped me feel really confident in my ability to reach my goals vocally."
"Josh has literally transformed my musical life. From his firsthand knowledge and experience in the musical community to his passion and joy in sharing the
gift of music with everyone, Josh can help you grow by leaps and bounds in your musical arena. If you are looking for someone who has a genuine heart and kind demeanor to educate any level of vocal skill, look no further!"
"I have been learning guitar with Paul for about 6 months now. I really like that Paul is open to teaching any type of music and customizing his lessons t
o the music I like. Paul is really a friendly and down-to-earth guy who you can tell really enjoys teaching. Paul recommends teaching some theory as well as songs, and he makes theory learning interesting and fun. For someone who's never picked up a guitar before I feel he's building a great foundation for years of enjoyment."
"Best instructor EVER! Personable, passionate, and patient in teaching Piano. I highly recommend."
"Alba immediately honed in on exactly the kind of student I am and taught me the basics. Looking forward to more lessons! I was a little unsure of doing le
ssons over Skype, but it turned out to be perfect."
