I use vocalizes to teach change in the voice and also different types of music to attain a better sound. I try to make it as physical as possible since so much of the effort depends on the brain. I want to help each student achieve their goal. Together we can get to that sound which is uniquely you.

Ciao guys, Mattia here.

Have you ever wanted to play drums but you don’t know how to start? Or have you played for a while and feel stuck, like you’re losing time or missing a piece?

I felt the same when I first started, but private lessons helped me achieve my goals and become the person I am today: A Professional Musician.
If I did it, so can you.

I’m excited to offer you online lessons where I will help you achieve your goals through a personalized path which includes technique + reading; groove like pop, rock, jazz; fills + solos; and anything else you wanna work on.

Are you ready to improve your skills?

Singing for musical theater is a combination of singing and acting. I work with young people and adults of all ages teaching classic technique combined with performance skills. Lessons start with exercises that help youo learn how to take deep natural breath breaths and use your to support your voice. Ear training and help you sing on key. Vocal exercises will help develop the quality of your voice and increase your range making it easier to hit those high notes. You will also learn how to use phrasing as you sing to put feeling into the words and connect with the audience. As your voice develops you will build a repertoire of music that you like to sing that you can use for auditions. If you want to audition for a play or musical, learning how to be completely natural on stage as you perform helps you build your self-confidence.

About Helen

If you like to sing and want to learn how to be a better singer, you don't have to have any previous experience or training. I specialize in teaching beginning singers of any age how to sing using the classic technique that is the foundation for singing any genre or style of music from Bach to Broa

I work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for young musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

About Jon

I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BME from the College of Wooster in Ohio. Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collabo

Great online lesson! I haven't played the oboe in 20 years. Prior to my first lesson with Grace, she provided contact info for a reputable oboe dealer as well as a source of reeds - so I would be ready to get started. During my first lesson, I played a few different oboes I had on trial from the oboe dealer. I played, and we discussed the pros and cons of each. Grace also suggested ways to improve my embouchure, as well as relaxation techniques for holding my instrument - to avoid fatigue. I was pleasantly surprised at how much ground we covered during the first lesson!
Randy
I have made amazing progress in just a week thanks to Grace getting right to the heart of the matter, even to the point of helping me with an online repair.

I feel very accomplished after my first lesson. Grace help me to figure out where the fingers went, how to make the reed work, and helped me to play hot cross buns. She is a fine instructor. I’m looking forward to next week.

"I have never played a musical instrument or taken lessons. And yet I love music. When I retired I decided to take piano lessons. A friend referred me to James and honestly raved about his method of teaching.
I have been taking lessons from James for less than two months and I am feeling so confident about everything I have learned so far. I knew nothing about a note or a chord and now I do!
He is a great teacher and so easy to understand. If you don’t get it , he explains a different way until you do.
I told him I was taking lessons for fun and never wanted to be a concert pianist.
I am having great fun with the music and learning is helping me clear up my head.
I very highly recommend James to Seniors and young people. He emanates the love he has for music and teaching it.
Best thing I have done for myself in a very long time. I am very excited about my lessons."
