Charles D.

Houston, TX

I teach a vocal technique which is called singing on the speaking level, or "Singing with the ease of Speech". It provides the student with a systematic approach to link together all the registers of the voice-chest and head. The student and I work together to build a bridge between the low voice and high voice, (through the break) combining those parts in the middle creating "the mix" ( a blend of chest and head voice), that most singers struggle to master and the vast majority of teachers don't know how to teach or identify. This allows the singer to access all of his or her range without strain. A student would begin to experience positive results within a few weeks of study, both in the studio and with practice between lessons.

One of the best things about this technique is that it allows you to sing any style of music. Whether you sing Pop/R&B, Rock, country, musical theater, gospel, or opera, you can experience vocal freedom and confidence that every singer wants to have. As

About Charles

Charles, a self described spiritual vocal artist whose repertoire offers songs of faith, healing, hope, love, peace, harmony, and enlightenment. He has a flair for infusing familiar and beloved inspirational and spiritual songs with a fresh, smooth, and distinctive sensibility entirely his own. His self-confidence is projected with warmth, charm, and genuine love for his music.

He captures the essence and spirit of those classic singers that have gone before him and established a tradition of great singing€¦.Johnny Mathis, Nat King Cole, and Harry Belafonte, as well as the more contemporary
sounds of Peabo Bryson, Wintley Phipps, Luther Vandross, Jeffrey Osborne.

He is in his element singing as a soloist for spiritual ceremonies, concerts, conferences, services and related events. His musical accomplishments extend to include performances at the Carlyle Hotel in New York City, The Jazz and Blues Company in Carmel, California, Houston Grand Opera, Opera Omaha, and the Houston Symphony as well as roles in musical theater with "Showboat" and "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat". Most recently, he performed for former first lady, Laura Bush and Peter Buffett, son of investment mogul, Warren Buffett.

As a singing teacher, Charles has taught voice both privately and within the public school sector for over 18 years. He received his Bachelor's Degree from the University of Houston System and has studied extensively with operatic tenor, Joseph Frank and well known Houston vocal coach, Tom Mckinney. He has also taken masterclasses with world renowned teachers including Hollywood vocal coach, Seth Riggs.

Charles has served as a preliminary vocal judge for the popular "Gimme the Mike" singing talent TV show on NBC Houston, 97.9 The Box "Hatta's Idol", coached 2 American Idol Finalists, one Xfactor top 10 contestant season 1, and 2 semifinalists for the "Voice". He also served as a vocal coach for Beyonce's Music World Entertainment's Project Popstar, under the direction of Matthew Knowles.

As a life coach, I provide personal coaching for singers and musicians. This process involves helping a singer to first and foremost identify and understand why he/she sings, and what is the message they want to deliver when they walk on stage. In other words, what do they have to say?? From this viewpoint, they can create educational and professional goals based on their highest truth and life purpose. and address any issues that might be blocking them from achieving those goals. One of the major challenges that singers face are making career and life choices that will balance with their artistic or musical goals. In addition, it is very important to know your true gifts, passions, motivations and intentions. Moreover, having a realistic view and understanding of the recording business vs. the music playing business is essential to your overall business plan and success. You must also find the time and energy to pursue your art while making a stable and rewarding living. Lastly, if you are a creative type who is struggling with two common life dilemmas: the "starving artist" who is tired of panicking every time the rent is due, and the " well paid professional" desiring the time to devote to his or her art, then life coaching is for you

About Monique

I have a degree in Music (Vocal Performance) and Psychology from Mt. St. Mary's College in Los Angeles, Ca. After taking a break to have 5 of my own children, I now teach children and adults how to make the most out of their voice. I still perform on stage locally. I just finished the role of "Domina" in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Other recent roles include "The Witch" in "Big Fish the Musical", "Kala" in "Tarzan the Stage Musical" and just before that "Judy" in "9 to 5 the musical". I have been directing choir and also performing solos for the last 20 years in my loc
al church. I currently have 50 plus private students ages 4-53! My area of concentration is musical theater, but I can teach all genres.

*** Lesson Details ***
During a typical lesson we cover relaxation and practice proper breathing, breath control, vocalization techniques, pronunciation and finally application of technique to approved song of choice.
If you love to sing, or have always wanted to learn sing, or improve your singing, or even get ready for that all important audition....then lets get started today! Remember, "as long as we live there is never enough singing"! Don't wait!

Steve A.

Houston, TX

I teach singing using Kurwen Handsigns and other Kodaly Concept methods. A particular emphasis is pitch; I have successfully taken a professional actress from "tone deaf" (her words) to performing with a major opera company.

About Steve

I am certified in Music Education by the State Board for Educator Certification and have 35 years experience working in individualized education. I am currently accepting a small number of students for piano, ear-training, sight-reading, and/or music theory lessons. We will discuss what you need and develop an individual plan for you based on your goals. I accept students from age 15 through adult.

Classical piano training for beginning, intermediate, or advanced students.
Ear training, including relative pitch, interval recognition, and sight-reading.
Music theory training from beginn
ing music reading through four-part harmonic dictation.
Preparation for music theory exams, including AP courses and the AP exam.

Upon request I can provide references from students who have found my approach to be greatly beneficial to them. I look forward to working with you.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are held either in my home studio in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston or via Skype. Each lesson lasts approximately 45 minutes, depending upon when we reach a good stopping point.

My only requirement is that you have access to a piano or electronic keyboard on a daily basis in order that you may practice. I require three hours' advance notice of cancellation in order for you to avoid having to pay for a missed lesson.

I have only had one lesson thus far, but it was really a great experience. I've had many vocal coaches throughout the years, but it is obvious Mr. Allen knows what he's doing. I hadn't had a voice lesson in almost 8 months and he put me immediately at ease, and we jumped right into vocalizing and songs. Loved it and looking forward to more!

I have taken lessons from Steve since the beginning of 2014. I took lessons when I was a little girl and had not played much since then. Steve has taken the time to get to know my capabilities, interests and reasons for coming back to the piano. Although he uses standard piano instruction books, he has been able to structure lessons and take home assignments that fit me. I especially like his focus on music theory, technique and how the notes and chords in the piece come together to create the piece. I have a busy schedule and Steve is organized and flexible when I am not able to come to class due to travel. He puts the onus on me to practice which is entirely appropriate for an adult coming back to piano. I would recommend Steve for instruction, particularly for self-motivated adults.

Troy W.

Houston, TX

I have been teaching this subject for over 13 years. There is no specific curriculum as each student will come to lessons with their own unique skills, needs, and goals. Lessons are tailored to those specifics. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons and will be a large focus for all non-readers. Music is not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Concerning repertoire, it may be selected from the western classical, musical theatre, and popular rep based on the student's goals and learning needs with their input. The main emphasis on performance lessons, however, will be technique and reading. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

About Troy

Composer Troy W. graduated from the New England Conservatory, earning his Bachelors, Masters (cum laude) and Graduate Diploma while studying with mentor Malcolm Peyton. After spending a year studying with Lukas Foss in Boston, Mr. W. moved to Houston in 2001 where he continued graduate studies at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music.

During his time as a teacher with the Michael P. Hammond Preparatory Program at Rice University's Shepherd School of Music, Troy taught classes in music fundamentals and music theory for pre-college students. He has also served on the faculty of the Summ
er Institute for Piano teaching courses in Form & Analysis for pre-college students.

Troy also has maintained a private studio, tutoring and teaching private lessons in composition, ear training, voice, piano, literature, and history for over ten years. Students who have studied with him come from a wide range of backgrounds with different goals. Those who have continued with musical studies in college have consistently placed out of at least the first two semesters of music theory and achieved advanced placement in their chosen fields of study. Those who chose a different path continue to benefit from the education and training they received from taking music lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
There is no "standard formula" to lessons. Each student has their own unique background, needs, and goals. Lessons tend to be somewhat casual but are structured in such a way as to meet the unique requirements of the student.

To accomplish your goals, there are a few requirements and basic expectations that the student and parent must meet.
The first is practice. Students are expected to practice daily for at least the length of their lesson time. This, above all else, is essential to progress. It is also expected that a parent will attend lessons for students who are too young to drive themselves here. It's important for a parent to guide the student's practice time (particularly for younger students) to ensure that the most is gained from it. This is why I ask that a parent observe lessons.
Each student or parent should bring to each lesson a notebook, pencils (with erasers). The notebook will be used to record notes about each lesson, homework, practice advice, etc. Pencils (not pens...nobody's perfect!) are used by composers to record their creations and performers to mark their music. Both of these essential practices are subject to changing thought and must be open to change. So no ink, please!

Performers: It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson for beginners. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons and will be a large focus for all non-readers. Lessons are not learned "by ear." A certain amount of theory will be a part of every lesson just as technique and repertoire. Concerning repertoire, it will be selected based on the student's learning needs but also with their input. The main emphasis on performance lessons, however, will be technique and reading. Students should come to the first lesson prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.
Note: Voice students must be at least 16 years of age.

Composers: Just as with performers, it is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons. Many young composers have great ideas but can only hear them in their heads or play them on an instrument. Lessons will allow you to obtain the skills to write them down with greater speed, accuracy, and clarity. More advance students will also include exploring a wider range of harmonic languages, advanced notation, instrumentation, orchestration, and aural skills. Students should come to the first lesson with examples of their work, either written, notated, or recorded in a digital format. They should be prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study.

IMPORTANT NOTE: the studio space is also inhabited by two lovely cats. Do consider this when signing up for lessons.

The voice is very technical but yet very vaguely understood in terms of what one should do to obtain what needs to occur, in order to produce what is expected, and Troy understands how to interpret what is needed in order to produce what should occur.

I can help you with Pitch, Diction, Articulation, Melodic Phrasing and Interpretation. I can give vocal excercises to help with ear training, warm up exercises, discerning intervals and expanding your range.

About Darrell

I wish I had taken lessons with my teacher when I first started playing! It would have saved me years of searching for ways to make my playing better!
Because we are unique individuals, each of us requires a different catalyst to ignite the fire of learning. It has been my privilege and honor to seek out this mechanism in each student which creates interest in progressive learning on their instrument of choice.
I would be happy to multiply your practice time by helping you find more direct ways to accomplish the level of succes you seek.
