I believe that learning how to sing is one of the things we can reward ourselves to achieve a happy and better life that we lived in. As a Voice Instructor, I believed that this natural instrument has the power to move people and captivate the hearts of people through the singer's delivery of the text within a song being performed.

With that in mind, I always like to have my students achieve this valuable role. I also love to encourage and uplift my students through the very best of their capability learning wide variety of songs while maintaining a healthy singing throughout their instructions.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance at the California State University, Long Beach under the instructions of Steven Kronauer.

I firmly believe that anyone can learn to sing beautifully. This is possible without a five-octave vocal range. Using the music that you love, I can teach you to sing the way you feel.

A former student of renowned voice teacher Taras V. Leschishin (of the Cleveland Opera Company, Boston Pops, and the Handel and Haydn Society), I can lead you to the threshold of your own mind.

Pedagogy is one of the few and rare professions that requires true vocation and conviction. I believe that teaching comes from sharing and I love to help each and every one of my students develop their own gift and understanding of music. This year marks the beginning of my 11th year of teaching and I am fascinated and humbled by everything that I have learned from all of my students!
Learning to play an instrument is a formative, fun and inclusive process for both teacher and student. I enjoy seeing my pupils progress and ultimately, finding their voice and telling their own story through music. My objective as a docent is to inspire students to develop high intrapersonal intelligence so that they may become their own best teacher.
It is my hope that my students will acquire tools that will not only help them become better musicians but that will also assist them in other areas of their lives.
The student will learn healthy ways of approaching the instrument. I guarantee the

Aleksandre is an amazing teacher! I've only been taking lessons with him for a month now and already feel more confident in my technique and happier with my sound! Aleksandre has incredible skill with the instrument and, importantly, is gifted in teaching as well! I highly recommend Aleksandre if you are looking to begin playing the viola or starting up again after decades like me!
Michele
My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed her lessons with Aleksandre and she has made tremendous strides in just 1 year with his instruction. He is nurturing and encouraging, giving praise when it is due, but also is meticulous and has high standards. In this sense he really strikes a perfectly balanced approach to teaching and shows a genuine investment in her progress. He demonstrates an obvious passion for the instrument and it is thrilling and inspiring to hear him play. He is a real role model and a cheer leader for his students. She and I both highly recommend Aleksandre!
Alexis
Aleksandre is an outstanding teacher! Truly one of the best. My son began taking lessons with Aleksandre a little more than a year ago. Aleksandre has a way of teaching that completely engages and excites my son while ensuring that he is learning how to read music and play with rhythm and feeling. When we had to go remote, Aleksandre did not miss a beat. My son has grown to love the violin so much that we increased our lessons to twice a week. I would highly recommend Aleksandre as a professional, thoughtful and extraordinary teacher of the violin.

I am a songwriter and composer by partial trade and I could help students write songs and original compositions that will blow their audience away. I have experience writing for videos and video games. I have also published a short book on songwriting in 30 minutes or less out on Amazon. One could expect a complete break down of melody and chords and how the words fit, or if an instrumental, how to choose what instruments to write for, what their ranges are, etc.

About Cody

With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as

Joe teaches classical and jazz piano with composition and improvisation which allows students to have fun from the start. Joe has taught over 6 years, with a variety of ages, all the way from kids to senior adults.

My approach combines knowledge of composition and music theory with skills at the keyboard. My unique approach includes learning by ear not just from the page, improvising from the beginning, etc. and other experiential exercises.

Joe has studied popular teaching techniques like Suzuki and Bastien, but also informs students about the way famous pianists of the past, like Chopin, Liszt, and Brahms would approach the instrument.

Joe moved to Nashville in 2015 where he got into the gritty details of less traditionally taught sub-genres of music like rock, funk, R&B, pop. He took a course in piano pedagogy in college which explored how to meet the individual needs of developing musicians. He is a product of Belmont University School of Music, earning a degree in ...

"Joe's knowledge of guitar is expert and spans a wide variety of genres. It's rare to find a guitarist who considers phrasing and dynamics while playing, but Joe does exactly this, breathing life into all his licks with mindful control over volume and articulation. I've learned a lot about Blues chord progressions, and I'm sure a guitarist of any genre will learn a lot from him. Highly recommended."
