About Bethany
I started studying classical piano at the age of 6 and continued through high school before going on to study with Robert Shannon at Oberlin Conservatory, where I majored in music history and theory (as well as English and creative writing - I've always had a lot of interests!). I also sang in choirs from a early age, including my high school's Madrigal Singers, the MMEA Northeast District Chorus, and the Oberlin College Choir, a select group which performs regularly with the Cleveland Orchestra. After graduation, I tried out a variety of musical activities, including singing with a semi-professional a Capella group, None of the Above, and appearing in local community theatre productions. But I finally realized that I'm most comfortable behind a piano, whether playing and conducting for musical theatre, coaching singers, writing music for
youth productions, or teaching the next generation of music lovers how to navigate the keys. And while I perform mostly Broadway-style music now, my classical training continues to serve me well; using good technique not only allows me to play more accurately and expressively, it also protects me from injuries that might otherwise arise from long rehearsals and a busy performance schedule.

I'm excited about where my musical journey has taken me, and I look forward to helping you start or continue yours.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm serious about making sure my students learn basic skills, like reading notes and rhythms and learning to interpret music artistically, that will serve them not only as developing pianists but in any future musical endeavors. To that end, I choose method books (such as the Faber Piano Adventures series) and supporting materials that build a strong foundation of musical knowledge, and I help each student construct a practice schedule that's appropriate to his or her level.

However, although I do maintain a certain amount of structure, I am very patient and relaxed in my approach to each individual student. I recognize that not everyone learns at the same speed or in the same way, so as long as I can tell you're putting in the effort, I will also try my hardest to find what works for you! And I know it's easiest to stay motivated when working on music you love, so I like to supplement the regular lesson materials with music of the student's choice, whether that means offering a selection of level-appropriate classical pieces, helping locate an arrangement of a favorite song, or coming up with our own arrangement if a good one doesn't already exist. And while my own background is strongest in classical and Broadway styles, I'm happy to have students work on music from any genre. One of the best parts of teaching is when I get to learn something new as well.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Malden studio: Dedicated studio with 88-key weighted keyboard, recording equipment, and large collection of sheet music. Parents can sit in on lessons or wait downstairs. Parking in driveway or on street. We have cats.

Bedford studio: Front room setup for lessons with upright piano and stereo. Laptop available to record lessons. Parents can sit in on lessons. Parking available in driveway and street.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect the student to provide a piano or suitable keyboard (88 keys, weighted keys or at least somewhat touch-sensitive, with a clear piano sound). For vocal students, it would be helpful for them to have a separate music stand as well.

*** Specialties ***
In terms of vocal music, I am definitely most comfortable with Broadway-style repertoire, but I have experience with some of the classical repertoire as well. As a pianist I have a solid classical background but am also very familiar with Broadway playing styles; I think I've done a little of everything at this point, so I could adapt to any interests my students might have. I am trained in the Taubman piano technique, which focuses on healthy, effective motions, so I try to incorporate some elements of that in my teaching, to the extent
that I think a particular student will benefit from it.

As for methods: for beginning and intermediate piano students I tend to use the Faber Piano Adventures series, supplemented by additional exercise books (Dozen a Day, for example), simple classical pieces (Bastien publishes a book that I like), or other materials depending on the student's interest and level of achievement (pop, Broadway, etc.). For advanced students I would use different exercise books (Hanon, Czerny, etc.) and focus more on repertoire than method, continuing to teach theory and technique as it comes up.

For vocal students I have mostly stuck to whatever materials/repertoire the student was most interested in, plus vocal exercises to support any problems or challenges they might be working on (e.g., range, vowel formation, learning a healthy mix/belt technique).

About Daniel
I love to sing, and I love to teach. Private lessons are a great place for both. Whether you're already passionate about music, or just dipping your feet in the water, I can personalize lessons to meet your needs. For me, seeing a student grow as a musician is a reward in itself. But the biggest rewards should be yours: a stronger voice, a deeper understanding of music, a whole body involved in making music, an enjoyable effort, and a growing independence to handle musical and technical difficulties over time.

My background:
I am an experienced tenor vocalist, with over 11 years of private vocal study, a BA in music from Williams College, and further study in vocal pedagogy (how to teach voice) with a Longy professor. I sing currently with the Cantata Singers, Labyrinth Choir, Stämbandet, MetroWest Choral Artists, Terpsichore, .
I have taught voice on faculty at Camp Encore/Coda, music composition with Classroom Cantatas, and private voice lessons out of my home studio, currently in Somerville. I've also taught for 2 after school programs and 3 summer camps. I've studied piano, both classical and jazz, for a total of 15 years. I have studied a variety of musical topics at college, from theory and composition to singing and conducting, to music technology, recording and engineering. I've performed and directed in diverse styles ranging from early music to broadway musicals, jazz to classic rock, American to Swedish.

*** Lesson Details ***
Your voice is simultaneously the most natural, intuitive instrument we know, and among the most complex. Every person's voice is unique, so lessons are not about fitting your voice to some imagined ideal. Rather, lessons are an opportunity to learn how to utilize your strengths, minimize your weaknesses, while maintaining your own unique sound.

You'll learn how to:
- Use your breath effectively to support your voice.
- Reduce tension, to keep your voice healthy and help your voice last longer.
- Make more sound with less muscle work, through resonance.
- Involve your whole body, to produce a fuller sound.
- Make good artistic choices, which reflect your own unique perspective.
...and much more, according to your goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio room with full weighted keyboard and seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can reliably reach students 5 miles away, traveling by bike or public transit depending on the student's location.

I prefer students to have a piano or keyboard, though we can work without one if necessary. My keyboard is too bulky to be carried around for each lesson. If a keyboard is not available, we can work without one, and I will bring a tuning fork for starting pitches.

*** Specialties ***
I sing in a variety of styles, including classical, broadway, and jazz, both sacred and secular, from around the world. I have extensive knowledge of music theory, and 15 years experience as a pianist. Although I do not currently teach piano, my ability to accompany vocalists during lessons is very helpful for students.

I am a professional singer and actress with opera and musical theater credits. Singing is my passion! I love to sing, and I LOVE to teach others to sing! The human voice is the most natural instrument of all, and helping others to bring out the beauty of the natural instrument that lies within them is something to which I am very devoted. I like to make students feel comfortable and at ease in lessons, and you will find that I am very warm and friendly!

Every student is unique, with their own strengths, their own areas for improvement, and their own preference for certain styles of singing. I can help you find what style makes your heart sing!

I have a broad range of credits, including the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof with Theodore Bikel (Tzeitel understudy), and Off-Broadway in Fiorello (Marie) and The Rose Ta

Mia is an absolutely outstanding teacher. I came in for my first lesson horrified to sing, not knowing anything about performing. And in just a few months of learning with Mia I was cast in my first show. Fast forward a few more months and I have been accepted to the college of my choice in their Musical Theater program. In just a year she has helped me achieve my goals that seemed so out of this world to me in the beginning but now are a reality. She is not only amazing at the technical stuff, but she is so genuinely invested in helping you be the best that you can be. She changed my life and I'm so grateful to her.

The lesson will be divided into two sections; warming up and practicing songs. The warm ups will include breathing exercises and various scales and arpeggios. The aim of these exercises is to create a continuity of sound through practicing legato (sustained, connected singing) and portamento (sliding seamlessly between pitches). A focus will also be placed on pitch accuracy and intonation. The songs will serve as an extension of the exercises with an additional focus on diction and rhythm.

About Austin
I have been teaching since 2013 as a music instructor. Currently I teach at 3 music schools; EKS in Quincy, Bach to Rock in Wellesley, and Piano Playtime in Milton and Arlington. I also currently work as a section leader or ringer for First Parish Church in Lexington. I also frequently perform in private residences with a small chamber group I call "Sole Durato" or setting sun in Italian. We also perform at various retirement homes and music festivals such as Newbury Nights and the Caspian Music Mondays series in Vermont. In the past I have also worked as a pop and jazz singer at various restaurants playing anywhere from 4-6 times per week.

I am Austin's voice teacher at the New England Conservatory where he recently completed his Master's Degree in Vocal Performance. Austin has done outstanding work refining his technique and knowledge of vocal pedagogy. The transformation to his singing and overall performing is nothing short of miraculous. You will find Austin to be highly intellectual, patient, and empathetic to your vocal development. I am confident that he know possesses all of the knowledge and tools to effectively diagnose and correct vocal faults with singers of all voice types. Austin is a champion for the vocal arts and he will be a champion for you so may reach your fullest vocal potential. I highly recommend Austin Burns for young singers in particular.

Not only is she noticeably well educated, but she's also got great observational skills which are really helpful when I'm looking for feedback on how I deliver a song.

I have engaged with both classical and contemporary repertoire throughout my vocal training. An understanding of how the human voice works, as well as technique are crucial components to any form of singing, whether it is pop, rock, jazz, or classical. The first few lessons will involve developing proper breathing techniques. Later lessons will revolve around identifying the essentials of your voice, and from there lessons will move on to strengthening your own unique voice and style of singing.

About Stephen
I am a recent graduate from Clark University and music has consistently been one of the most important aspects of my life. I majored in Music with a minor in Comparative Race and Ethnic Studies. While studying abroad in Cyprus I passed grades 1, 4, and 7 of the Associated Boards of the Royal Schools of Music Examinations for piano, and grades 2 and 5 for Music Theory. I play the piano, sing, and I write music. I record at home using the DAW, Logic Pro X. I trained with Logic while at school. I am very patient and outgoing. I would be willing to teach any and all levels of vocal performance, piano, or Logic Pro X.

I have been on stage for 50 years, and therefore have so much hands-on experience to pass along to my students !! I think it is essential to get to know each student, to understand what makes each tick, what motivates and inspires them, what brings them to life, as far as music. I then use that knowledge to enhance their experience and give them the tools that will help them grow,using as a base their natural talents that are already there. I only help to enhance their talents and strengthen it with the use of technique that will help them to expand their range and to strengthen their performances. I try to help each to develop a style without forcing them to go in a certain direction, and many times I hear in their voices what naturally may be a great genre for them, and I will suggest taking a look at certain artists to see if their styles may be of Interest.
I focus strongly on not hurting the voice and ways to prevent vocal burnout as that is pretty common especially among ...

About Sharon
Hello..to hopefully my future students! If you are looking for a teacher with many years of experience on stage in various ways including musical theater, bands and also in the recording studio, you've come to the right place. If you are looking for someone who will not try to change you nor try to force you into singing songs that you do not like or change the love that you have for certain types of music by molding you into someone else, then yes, again, you have come to the right place !
My goal is to take what you have already and to improve upon it by giving you some warm-up techniques and structure so that you can preserve your talent as well as expand upon it. Want to try to sing a little higher? We will work on that. Can't hit those low Adele or Christina Perri notes? We'll tackle those. It is all about breath technique and placi
ng your voice in the right spot and we will warm up so that we can do that and focus a lot on the breath.
Do you find you lose your voice easily? I have many students that have that trouble and many of them are using their voices incorrectly on the soccer field or the softball field because they are encouraged to "be loud". One of my main concerns with my students is preserving their voices, and I focus a lot on getting them to work with me on that. It is important to preserve the voice even out of the lesson, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Having lost my voice when I was younger, I learned the hard way about the things we have to do to preserve it. If you are to be a singer, then this is serious and is something I focus on a lot.
Do you want to be part of a team instead of someone demanding things of you? Do you want to sing pop but have come across teachers who will force you to sing opera or classical? That will not be me. I find that whatever is in you guys that is natural is what I need to focus on as the core and I build around it and upon it. That works out so much better and having you guys choose your own songs shows me that you are engaged and interested and excited to have a lesson as opposed to having to drag your feet because you don't like what you're working on. There are songs that just don't work or are not challenging enough, and in that case I will absolutely say that we should move on to another but we do start with what is in your heart and what inspires you. That is always a good foundation and we can build from there. You and I are a team! :) Let''s do this!

It's a common misconception that singers and instrumentalists are two completely different types of musicians. They're actually much more alike than you might think!
