As a musician, I am also a freelance artist an I have my own painting studio and gallery as well. I love to travel and teach so this is why I would love to teach online.

I believe that no matter music or art, they are all medium to nuture your own creativity and make you feel more alive.

I always encourage my students to be imaginative when it comes to interpret music. I believe one can play well have to learn how to appreciate music first.
Only with the students' own internalization of the music, the music can be alive.

To play music well means one has to understand the song from all different perspectives, not only the techniques but also the learn the musical themes that the composer intended to express.

And the most interesting part comes to the performer add his/her own touch and imagination, preference to the original piece.

I would love to share the joy of playing music with my students.
I will teach my students the lessons of techniques and expressions separately ...

If music is a language, then theory is the translation guide. it shows the connections between keys, chords and notes to show the underlying structure and connection in music. A foundation in music theory helps your guitar solos shine brighter, vocal runs reach higher and compositions grow more evolved.

Singing has been my passion since the age of 4. The voice is very special - it empowers us to live the lives we desire, communicate with others, and express ourselves. It is my mission to help others discover and develop their voices, thereby freeing them to use it as they choose.

Beyond the functional voice, I teach performance skills, musicianship, music reading, foreign language diction, phonetics, and so much more! I have a Bachelors in Music Education, a Masters in Performance, and a performance resume ranging from jazz to opera.

I love working with singers of all ages and experience levels. I know how to engage with children and adults alike for a productive, enriching musical experience, so whether you are a sings-all-the-time 2nd grader, a recreational karaoke buff, a devoted choral singer, or an operatic baritone, you have a place in my studio.

Brian was very patient with my son. He made sure he was aware of his instructions. He even guided him back to the correct path when he was unsure of the information. Great teacher!
Jaesung
Tremendously knowledgeable and able to teach complex things very simply. Everything he taught me was so much more profound and important to understanding music that I could have imagined. Highly recommend him as a mentor if one is at all interested in music.

We will go through a method book to go through the fundamentals of playing sax and will supplement it with ear training and music theory. We will learn any song that you want to! From a TV show, video game, movie, or anything else as it is very important to have fun with what you are playing. We will play duets and have a great time while becoming a better musician!

"Al is an awesome teacher.

When I was looking for a drumming teacher for my son, I looked at several of the teachers' profiles. I thought that Al's profile was the best fit for my son who had no experience in drumming, and my son has learned so much from Al. Al is a wonderful teacher and very patient. He adjusts to the likes and needs of his students. I like that Al is a professional musician/performer and brings that experience to the table too."

 After working with Fawn® I can tell you that she takes my career and progress very seriously, she is professional and has thought me every minor detail of pronunciations, how to flow on the beat and how to hit and change notes at certain times (even at perfect exact millisecond) and thanks to Fawn® I've learned so much about music, the music biz and my various talents."

"I began taking lessons with Luis going into my freshman year of High School. Before working with him, I was active in Musical Theatre, and wanted to work with someone who would help me practice music over the summer, and prepare for show auditions during the school year. After my first lesson with Luis, I immediately knew that working with him would be something I would look forward to every week, and my judgements were correct! I can happily say that I was fortunate enough to have Luis as my voice teacher all throughout high school. During our lessons he helped me practice music for auditions, my school choir repertoire, and he even began teaching me how to play the piano! He also came to watch me in one of my shows, which is something I will always remember. Continuing to practice music in college, in an Acapella group I auditioned for in the fall, I can say that I still use so many of the skills Luis taught me during my lessons! He is so patient, and I will really miss working with him, and will always be incredibly grateful for all he has taught me, that I will continue to carry with me as I continue to sing in college."

5 Stereotypes Lead Singers Face (& How to Overcome Them)

Do you sing with a band? If so, you may have been wrongfully accused of one of the many stereotypes lead singers face -- even if you're always on your best behavior! Here, St. Augustine, FL voice teacher Heather L. shares her tips for proving them wrong...   I'm the lead singer -- uh, make that the only singer -- of two bands, an acoustic duo and a guitar/drum/piano/mandolin group.
