Tara G.

Austin, TX

About Tara

I graduated from University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA! I received a BFA in Musical Theatre. What a change that was to go from Texas to Philly! I auditioned for many different schools, and know what it takes to get there. I then moved to New York City 2 days after graduating, on my 22nd birthday! I had 13 wonderful, and also challenging, years in NYC. Lots and lots of auditions, of every kind! Broadway, Off-Broadway, TV, Soaps, Film, Commercials, Concerts, Readings, Showcases, etc. I have sung for ABBA (Mama Mia), Stephen Schwartz (Wicked), Hal Prince (Gypsy). I was also up for lead
s in Mama Mia, Wicked, Rent, Hairspray. So, I definitely have a lot of versatility, and knowledge of what they're looking for! I did a Eugene O'Neil play called "Ah Wilderness" at the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. We opened there, and then toured it all over the Midwest for 6 months. I did appear on NBC's Law & Order as a featured role, with the late Jerry Orbach. Lot's of experience, lot's of knowledge, and I'm excited to share it with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to teach in a laid back manner. That's not to say that I don't expect you to work too though! I don't necessarily teach one specific method. I feel like if you can get ALL the information, and different methods, then you can choose what best works for your voice , or your piano playing. I want my students to feel comfortable and safe to explore all different facets of their talent. After all, the little imperfections are what make us all unique!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a keyboard, among many other instruments! My husband uses those, I use the piano. There's definitely a comfortable living room, for the parents or caregivers to sit and wait.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If I go to the students house, they must have a piano, or keyboard. I can bring books of music.

*** Specialties ***
I can teach any style of singing! I majored in Musical Theater, but I sing everything. I played piano for 10 years. I have many many years of music theory lessons! I had surgery on my vocal chords, back in 1995, and had 4 years of speech and vocal therapy, so I have lots of experience with that as well. I don't use a specific method with my acting. It depends on what they would want to work on! I have many books of music, and music theory, and piano learning. In terms of learning piano, I would start with scales, and chords, and learning the right hand, then the left.

Joshua A.

San Marcos, TX

About Joshua

Joshua has been a musician for over twelve years and been a teacher for five. He is an award winning composer, critical thinker, and an honest teacher. Joshua has a high standards for his students and himself. Joshua has studied Suzuki method under Dr. Paula Bird for four years and has taught over 100 students. He performed his official Suzuki training under Dr. Laurie Scott. Joshua also teaches at the Texas State String Project under the direction of Dr. Ames Asbell and Dr. Karla Hamelin. He has done so since it's inception.

Joshua is an award winning composer and has composed over 80 pie
ces, ranging in style from classical symphony to electronic dance. He has also arranged hundreds of works for violin and piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a relaxed person with a strict teaching style. I have two critical expectations for my students.

1: I expect my students to practice everyday, with time depending on age. (10 minutes a day for 5 year old's, 20 minutes for 10 year old's, etc.) No exceptions. Lessons are a place for me to teach you, not a place to watch you practice.

2: I expect parents to participate in every lesson. You are the teacher 6 days a week, I'm only get to teach them one.

If everyone understands my expectations, students will grow and learn quickly, and have a great time doing it!

I develop a lesson plan depending on each students strengths, weaknesses, talents, and personality. No one student is identical to the next, so none will be taught the same, but everyone will follow a similar pattern.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano lessons with full keyboard. Stands, couches, and a small library of sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki style instruction for violin technique. For songwriting and performance I focus on the analysis of music to find a middle ground of emotional expression and theory. Once that middle ground is found we explore what music means to the student, and how they can use it as a tool of expression.

Jameson J.

Austin, TX

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 tai
lor 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 ***

*** Travel Equipment ***

Jameson is an exceptional singer and teacher. He is kind and patient in lessons and wants to make sure you understand what he is teaching. Not only does he go over the notes and rhythms of a song, he also goes over the meaning and emotions of the piece to help you understand and perform the piece.

Keith L.

Martindale, TX

About Keith

I was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and have a vast musical background. Very skilled with jazz, classical, and many other genres of music. My speciality is German Lieder(German solo songs) and I can sing in over 4 different languages. My musical background and upbringing can help students unlock potential they never thought they had in a very fun way! Relating to students and their instruments are my speciality as well, and I will teach students not only about the performance techniques of the instruments but i will also teach about instrument and music history. Students will have
a keen interest in music once taking lessons with me, and will want to pursue music more on their own rather than being forced too.
