About Jameson
If you are a seasoned performer, I will guide you in developing agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. If you are a first-time vocal student, I will provide an engaging, supportive environment to find your voice.

My instruction is based on professionalism, experience and range from more than 25 years of singing and 13 years of teaching. I have advanced education in vocal performance and am an AmSAT certified teacher of the Alexander Technique, which allow me to integrate the intellectual and physical aspects of singing. I use my energy, attentiveness and creativity to tailor lessons towards each student's unique needs.

I base my vocal technique on the Italianate tradition of operatic "bel canto," but also incorporate broad experience in musical theater, jazz, and early to contemporary classical music.

* Breath
control
* Healthy vocal production "bel canto"
* Fach transition
* 20th Century music

Roles performed:

Rodolfo, La Boheme
Canio, Pagliacci
Count Almaviva, Barbiere di Siviglia
Goro, Madama Butterfly
Mr Splinters, The Tender Land
Don Basilio, Marriage of Figaro
Juror #3, Resurrection (Machover)
The Cowboy, The Blue Hotel (Hulse)

Credits include:

* Aspen Opera Theater Center

* Boston Lyric Opera

* Rome Opera Festival

* Austin Lyric Opera

* Amato Opera

* Dicapo Opera

* Bronx Opera

I have made demonstration tapes for new works (musical theater and opera) and know how to work a new piece into any voice.

In addition, I have worked with the Alexander Technique for over 15 years and integrate its principles into my lessons. My approach is creative, energetic and disciplined.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is different and every lesson will be different depending on the needs of the individual, and the demands of the day. I use the principles of the Alexander Technique to open up the student's mind and body to new experiences.

In general, lessons will start with a simple warm-up. Then scales and arpeggios to develop agility, musicality, range, dynamics, and phrase shape. Finally, the last part of the lesson I incorporate some of the new ideas that were communicated earlier into the student's repertoire.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, Alexander Technique table,

*** Travel Equipment ***
NONE

*** Specialties ***
Teaches beginner through professional:
Singing, Voice Opera, Musical Theater, Jazz, Alexander Technique.

PIANO LESSONS
(for ages five and up))

I teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. I will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons.

About Tom
Hello everyone, I'm Tom.

I have always loved teaching people things that I enjoy, sharing my experience with others, and helping people realize their own potential.

I am a musician, a martial artist, and a general IT guru.

Music and martial arts runs in my family, and I was raised around them from a very young age.

As a child, I was always fascinated with computers, and had to know everything I could about them.

My teaching style is a bit unorthodox, focusing more on philosophy and personal introspection than traditional "memorize and practice" methods, and is very mind, body, and spirit oriented.

Feel free to ask me questions for more information.

I look forward to hearing from you.

About Josh
My name is Josh and I love to play the guitar! I also enjoy teaching others and helping people find their passion through playing music I've been playing for 14 years, acoustic, electric, bass...you name it. I've been in a few bands (90s covers!) but find solo work to be my favorite setting. I have experience with teaching students of all ages (7 - 40). I tailor our lessons to my students specific goals and ability level. I have a unique approach by making music fun and ensuring my students are learning at their own pace. I offer instruction in how to play the guitar as well as reading and writing music and general music theory. Whatever your desire is just let me know and we will work together on acheiving your musical goals!

I am willing to travel to your location, meet at a park on a nice day, or book studio time (if requested) at a
local studio. I also will invite you into my home to practice, whatever works for you!

I'm looking forward to working with you!

Josh

Amy was great! She was great to work with on scheduling and was very good about keeping in touch prior to the lesson letting me know we were still on for the scheduled time. She really knew how to teach well and was thorough making sure my daughter understood what needed to be done during the week before the next lesson. We are very happy with her and look forward to learning a lot.

About Johnuel
I've been playing guitar for 12 years now & have been teaching for 6 of those years. I began playing classic rock/punk/metal/hardcore & ventured into various sub-genres catered to these styles throughout my teen years when I started writing my own songs & playing in various bands in the Tri State (NJ/NY/PA) areas.

I was completely self taught up until I decided to pursue my studies further beyond High School at Berklee College of Music (2012-2016) where I focused on broadening my musical palette and immersed myself w/ Contemporary/Fusion/Jazz/Latin/Progressive Rock and many other various styles. Over those years, I studied w/ John Baboian, Jon Finn, Dave Fiuzcynski, Dave Gilmore, Mick Goodrick, Don Lappin, Tim Miller, Norm Zocher.

I currently play w/ TOOTHGRINDER (Spinefarm Records/UMG) I'm honored to have toured with artists like:
After The Burial | Between The Buried And Me | Bullet For My Valentine | CHON | Code Orange | The Contortionist | The Faceless | Killswitch Engage | Memphis May Fire | Meshuggah | Norma Jean | Periphery | Polyphia | SikTh | Trivium | 36 Crazyfists & several others!

I'm very passionate about being able to share the love of music and helping people grow on their way to becoming the musician they desire themselves to be and become. I'm eager to pass along all of the tricks and tips I've discovered over my years of playing and learning. We'll cover everything from fretboard knowledge, basic to advanced theory & harmony, soloing approaches in all styles, strategies for learning alternate picking/sweep picking and other advanced techniques, arpeggios and scales, as well as learning your favorite songs and breaking them down to see how their constructed, fingerpicking/folk styles, note reading and many other topics. Sign up today and lets get shredding!

About Marc
I am a professional drummer, singer, recording engineer and producer.
I studied Performance at Berklee College of music for 3 semesters before dropping out to pursue touring.

Since then, I've been on 7 cross country tours and several international tours in Canada, the UK and France, playing in personal projects and as a backup musician.
I've worked with bands and artists such as The House on Cliff, Blindspot, Aliyah Moulden (the Voice), Daniel Prou (American Idol), Dalton (American idol), and many more...
I also have experience as an intern and sound engineer, recording my own music and student projects as well!

I try my best to incorporate all the things I've learned into the lessons I give, but ultimately my main goal is to improve my students skills on the kit all while keeping them interested in the musical aspect of playing.

After
a couple lessons you will know and/or have a better understanding of:

- Adapting your playing and changing your dynamics depending on the setting (Live, studio, rehearsal,...)
- Basic technique and rudiments.
- Tuning your instrument.
- Stage presence.
- Communication with other players.
And much more...

I look forward to meeting you and helping you on your journey!
