I offer private lessons and performance workshops that are designed to help students deal with the many aspects of vocal performance. These include picking the right material, working with musical accompaniment, finding the right keys for your songs, how to deal with performance anxiety, microphone technique and connecting deeply to your material. We also focus on warm ups , cool downs and vocal technique issues where needed. Lessons are customized to fit the individual needs of the students.

About Wendy

I've been teaching private vocal instruction since 2003, and opened my own studio in 2008. I love helping people find their true, authentic voice, which I feel is essential not only for singers but many other people as well! Singing is a great joy, and the voice is one of our primary modes of expre

My goal as a vocal pedagogue is to create a positive environment in my studio where my students can reach all of the goals that they set out to achieve.  It is important for my students to feel a warm, welcoming atmosphere, where they can make mistakes, take risks, and ask questions. The art of singing is a whole-body experience and it is essential for students to train and practice like an athlete would train for a high-level event.  I encourage my students to do some sort of physical activity that has an emphasis on the abdominal muscles (i.e. yoga, pilates, tai chi, weight routine), so that they feel what it is like to use the whole body as well as strengthen their core muscles. This directly relates to an appoggio based breath support, which is the technique I utilize in my own singing and in my studio.  I teach my students to use their entire body when they sing. I believe that students should practice physicality with gestures, so they can get connected to their whole body and ...

Jamie is a natural teacher of her craft! Her ability to quickly assess and adapt lessons to my daughters’ personalities and preferences of music, as well as her incredibly positive and encouraging demeanor, has made taking voice lessons a great learning experience for both of them. She is very dedicated to finding ways that work for each student to understand how to use their voice and find their breath, and even given the current circumstances of having lessons via FaceTime because of social distancing, the quality and level of expertise of her lessons have not faltered in the least. We are fans!
Marie
Jamie's approachable and friendly personality is reflected in her teaching style - she is not afraid to have you try various unconventional techniques that turn out to be super effective and fun! In the year I've been taking lessons with her, my breath support, technique, and vocal range have all improved significantly - so much so that a high note that I found strenuous a year ago is now almost within my comfort range! She is very receptive to different styles of music, and her suggestions are always challenging, fun, and geared towards developing your voice.
Lena
Jamie is a fantastic voice teacher. She is extremely patient and encouraging with me as a beginner. I started with hardly any experience at all, and my singing has already improved significantly after only 8 weeks of lessons. She helped me with song choice and voice repertoire, but is also open to my suggestions. I can highly recommend her for anyone who has been thinking about voice lessons, but has not had the courage to start, even at an older age. Just give it a try!

Online Music Performance Teacher

I strongly believe in music as part of each individual’s curriculum, particularly in the 21st century, when society is based on quickly achievable outcomes and most young generations have lost the sense of commitment and patience that music can teach. Teaching occupies a large part of my daily activities. I have been teaching private students (from 3 to 60 years old) since I was a teenager. Teaching middle school kids in Italy has prepared me to the class environment of group piano classes in the US, where I have been awarded a Teaching Assistantship in both schools I have attended in this country. My interest in pedagogy has become predominant thanks to Franco Scala in primis, making me eager to learn new teaching methods, particularly focusing for years on the pedagogical approach of Vincenzo Scaramuzza, who taught the very young Martha Argerich. Thanks to Franco Scala, I was able to closely understand the peculiarities of this method, which I now apply to my own students. Later, ...

Hi!

I studied with Mr. Luca and everything he taught me was life changing. Not only as a pianist but as a human being. He is an amazing performer but also a wonderful teacher. He seeks excellence yet understands that each student is at a different level and moves as it's own pace. I loved being his student and I highly recommend him. Unfortunately, I couldn't continue studying with him because he moved to Miami to pursue his Doctoral degree. I wish him success in his wonderful career as a teacher and performer.
Marilyn N.
My daughter had the honor to have Mr. Luca for her very first piano teacher. She was only 5 yrs old when she began. Mr. Luca is not only an excellent pianist, but he is an amazing teacher & he is wonderful with young children. I was so impressed with what she learned from him. We miss him so much, but we are so happy for his career advancements, we only regret he had to move from Texas.
Jake W.
Luca has been incredibly instrumental in my current and future success as a musician. As a beginner student his teaching was a major factor in my acceptance to the Piano Department at Texas State University. Without his guidance, and commitment to seeing me succeed, I would certainly not have been able to accomplish the things I have, or be in the position that I am today. I am truly grateful and blessed to have met Luca and I wish him all the future successes he deserves.

"Eric B. was the music instructor for both my children at the middle and high school they attended. Additionally, I taught with Eric for seven years.

My children received excellent music instruction in both trombone and flute. I was pleased with the rigor of the practice that was expected from Eric, which enabled dramatic growth in their musical ability. I was also pleased that they were both able to read music due to the instruction they were given under Eric's tutelage.

As I said earlier, I have worked with Eric as a colleague. I found him to be highly organized, student centered with regard to growth and performance, and a man of high character.

Eric created a Jazz band curriculum at the school corporation we taught at, where he developed several Jazz sections that would perform regularly in the community. Eric would invite notable guest musicians to work with the students and participate with them in these performances.

I would recommend Eric, without reservations, to anyone who desires a quality music instructor."

"Buzz is an excellent teacher and brings real world music experience into his instruction. As a touring musician, producer, song writer, and arranger, Buzz has an understanding of practical application. When I perform, I am always looking for ways to play smarter, and Buzz always helps with that. Buzz will break down music theory in a way that makes sense and that I can apply to my own playing on gigs and in rehearsal sessions. Buzz is a tremendous teacher for beginners (I have watched him give lessons to young students and he is excellent) , but if you are an experienced player and are just looking to get better, working with Buzz will get you there. I promise you'll play better after one lesson."

"My 7 year old son has been taking recorder lessons from Dimitry for almost 1 year now. Dimitry is very patient, encouraging, and enganging - considering that my son is on the younger side. Dimitry provides music instruction that is appropriate age and level wise, so my son feels accomplished and challenged at the same time.
We plan to continue with Dimitry and hopefully advance to the clarinet once his fingers can cover the clarinet holes and he has learned more music theory. My son looks forward to his music lessons. We are very pleased with his musical instruction."

"I hired Danny early this year 2016 at my home studio in Austin,TX. I have been working on a recording studio project. With 6 songs I needed to record. I did three songs on my own. That took a week and a half and at least 5 to 6 hrs each. I looked around and hired a local coach who was very classical and just didn't get it. 3 hrs I will never get back. I found Danny online, hired him, and it was perfect...We warmed up with scales and light cardio. Very different I will say but effective. Anyways, we finished the 3 songs in just under 2 hrs. Wow! Straight to the point. So I sing Gospel music and had so many techniques wrong. A little bit of good habits goes a long way."
