About this class

Though this course is listed under singing, these tips can help anyone who is a musician in general, whether you sing, play an instrument, act, etc! In this class, I will go over some tangible tips and tricks that you can take home that address how to practice more efficiently and what that will look like for a beginner, intermediate, and advanced student. We will also analyze what this may look like depending on your instrument, skill level, and how not to over-practice so we don't injure ourselves. Students will be able to make their own pdfs/documents on practice tips unique to where they are at in their development that they can take home and use.

About Miya H.

I am a professional musician currently residing in the Chicago area, attending the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University ('21) where I am receiving my Master of Music. While at Northwestern I've sung operatic roles such as La Messaggiera in L'Orfeo, Dorabella in Cosi fan Tutte, and covered Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus. Music is my biggest joy and passion and I absolutely love to share it with others. I have been teaching music lessons in one on one and group settings (voice and piano) for over 7 years and am a professional musician trained in piano, classical voice, and musical theatre. I hold a Bachelors with honors in music in addition to achieving my masters and have sung with a wide variety of local musical organizations including Vashon Opera, and the Olympia Symphony and have placed and competed in several national organizations including NATS and the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.

Music lessons are a great way to focus on different elements of technique and musical expression. I am comfortable teaching all ages in all genres at all skill levels and tailor each lesson and curriculum to fit each student's specific needs. I love helping people achieve their goals with a variety of skill sets and techniques, combined with warmth, encouragement, and humor.

Some genres I teach in both instruments include opera, classical, pop, contemporary, musical theatre, basic jazz, praise music and more. I look forward to working with you!
