Mariana L.

Maple Grove, MN

About Mariana

Born in Panama City, Panama, Mariana completed a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Shenandoah Conservatory and completed a Master of Music in Vocal Pedagogy at the Catholic University of America with an emphasis in Latin American Music in 2009. She has sung on the stages of Italy and Spain participating in performances of Die Zauberfl te, L'Elisir d'Amore and La Traviata. Mariana has sung in the DC area with Zarzuela Di Si and the In Series as well as The City Choir of Washington and The Washington Chorus.
As a voice teacher, Mariana has experience teaching students of all ages but
mostly children and teenagers. Her approach is simple yet effective, speaking in terms that are easy for each individual student to understand and remember.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will develop a strong vocal technique and build healthy vocal habits. They will learn all aspects needed to become a well rounded singer: diction, interpretation, musicianship, breath support and focus, all of this while having fun! Also, they will acquire the tools to keep up the work they've done during their lessons in the time between meetings with the teacher.
Pianists will learn to read music and play by ear while acquiring a healthy technique to avoid any injuries.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I own a Yamaha digital piano.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I own a traveling keyboard but prefer to use a larger instrument if available at the student's home. I also provide musical scores and the use of metronome.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, pop, musical theatre, rock

Jonathan "JC" C.

Minneapolis, MN

About Jonathan "JC"

Hello students, parents, and co-creators. My name is Jonathan. I am a 32 year old French native from Paris and I will be your teacher today.

I am a happy husband and step-father who moved to Minneapolis in 2015 to live with the wife Sophia and 2 kids: Blake and Samara, 14 and 12.

I have been a professional photographer for more than 13 years now. I also practice traditional Indian-Himalayan Sunyoga, meditation, acupressure. I have participated in healing cancer patients and all kinds of diseases since 2013.

WHAT ABOUT TEACHING? Everybody wants the best. I believe QUALITY is the most i
mportant. Each person is unique and should be treated in a unique way.

What comes first? Question or answer? When we arrive on our first day at school do we have final exams? First the teacher shares some knowledge during class. Depending on the teacher's talent and passion and love for his work the students will learn something. Then only we have exams.

Life is the biggest exam off all. Every day we are being tested. With our family, friends, work. Hopefully wisdom will come out of this process. All we need is a little support to all grow together.

Teaching is a big responsibility. Parents and teachers, it is our duty to teach the best. Let's do our best together. Thank you.

Siri C.

Minneapolis, MN

About Siri

I am passionate about providing the most well-rounded music training to singers and pianists of all ages. This includes learning healthy technique, sight-reading, theory and analysis, and appropriate repertoire. Singers also learn acting techniques. Flutists can get a solid start on their instrument with good tone and note-reading skills. I have MM degrees in Voice and Piano Performance and Instrumental Conducting and am nationally certified in piano teaching through MTNA. I am an active member of both MTNA and NATS.

I started learning German through what is now the Concordia Language Villa
ges. I spent my senior year of high school as an exchange student in the southern Black Forest of Germany and took several high-level German classes in college. My pronunciation of Hoch Deutsch is perfect. (And I know a wee bit of the local dialect too!)

Siri was an excellent instructor for my son who had never played the flute before. She's very talented and incredibly patient. My son learned a great deal in just a few lessons. We also found Siri very easy to work with in terms of scheduling.

Siri is a fantastic teacher who prepares any singer very well for whatever competition or audition they may have. I worked with Siri for many years and she has taught me so much about singing and my voice throughout the years. I highly recommend her as a voice teacher, you will learn a lot.
