Develop your discipline through an exercise routine to stregnthen your voice to accomplish your goals

About Aleksis
My name is Aleksis B., but many of my students know me as Mr. B. I am a professional instructor and performing musician who combines a love of music with a desire to help others who want to achieve their highest musical potential. I try to make that passion show in everything I do.

My education includes classical voice training with Michele Howard Hansen, an opera singer that often performs at the Kennedy Center. I studied piano with Geoffrey Chappell, who writes for Jazz Times. I also received compositional training on multiple instruments from Stanley Cowell, who recorded and performed with legends like Miles Davis.

I have been performing professionally since 1992. I studied education in college and did my student teaching in a music class at Goshen Elementary School in Gaithersburg, Maryland.

I have been teaching music pr
ofessionally now for over twenty years. Some students want to take a few lessons to see if it is something they will enjoy, others have worked with me for over a decade. I have mentored several students who have gone on to professional careers. I have experienced a lot of success teaching young children and those with special needs. I have been blessed with a tremendous amount of patience and truly enjoy teaching anyone who wants to learn.

Whatever your goals or abilities, I look forward to working with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Experience fun based lessons as my teaching approach is relaxed and inspirational. I enjoy working with all ages, adjusting my teaching methods to accommodate your learning style and abilities. Learn to play the music you love! You learn best when you enjoy what you are playing, I can help you play along with your favorites or even write your own songs. I always ask my students at the beginning of a lesson "What would you like to do today?" Then structure the lesson accordingly into a routine that the student can practice on their own. Generally the time is divided into warm ups, learning new material, then picking a fun song the student choses. Whether your interest is Classical, Jazz, Rock, Pop music, etc... I'm here help you reach your goals so let's make your dreams come true with music together!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books, Guitar, music stand, metronome, picks, tuner, page clips, capo, media player, laptop, Keyboard (on request), and recording equipment (on request)

*** Specialties ***
With Voice I specialize in helping people prepare for auditions such as American Idol. I have students who simply want to be karaoke stars. I have several professional singers that hire me as a voice coach and producer for recording sessions. I have taught children as young as 2 and those that retired with a lifelong dream to sing. Though my training is classical, I can teach Jazz, Pop, Rock, Rap, R&B, etc...whatever is fun for the student. I highly recommend learning to read music but I do not push it unless parents want their child to.

With Piano I can teach traditionally from Alfred and Bastien Piano Courses depending if they are auditory or visual learners. For Kinesthetic learners I use Hanon scale exercises and Rothman Rhythm Exercises. For those that want to learn notation I introduce classical and Jazz composers unless there is a popular artist/band/movie theme etc...that they would like to learn. However I do not push students to read music unless their parents would prefer it. I tend to keep more students that want to learn to play by ear especially adults by using rhythm training and music theory exercises and then applying them to songs they love. For piano I haven't had much success with children younger than 3. I also have a lot experience working with special needs children.

For Guitar I teach Classical, Acoustic, and Electric all styles and genres. I encourage sight reading but don't mind using tabs. I use more exercises with these students, since the first month students have a hard time making a sound. I try to make the lessons fun by having students strum chords along with songs they chose. I teach lead and rhythm even songwriting and composition. Job satisfaction for me is seeing my students leave a lesson with a smile on their face so I make sure to be a fun based teacher that doesn't give the student a hard time about not practicing.

For Recording and Performance I use the knowledge I gained doing Pro Audio Sales for Guitar Center from 2000-2002 to help clients build their own home studio. I have lots of producers and engineers I work with on a regular basis to produce broadcast quality audio and video recordings and help my students use their lessons and pre-production for those opportunities. I can teach Garage Band or Pro Tools classes on navigating the software and utilizing all the commands. I can also teach room acoustics and using the right microphone and how to position them with the right equipment and the right acoustics to get the best possible tone that they are looking for. I can also teach editing, mixing, looping, sampling, midi, and mastering so that the student can eventually work on their own writing, performing, and recording their music.

Hello! I've been singing since before I can remember and playing instruments for almost as long. I have a passion for music. Whether it's being onstage at York Little Theatre, directing the church choir in Red Lion, or paying with one of several local and regional bands, I love music and performing. There's no rush like sharing your passion with an audience, and I believe that with practice comes confidence and with confidence comes a great performer. I'll make my schedule/rates as flexible as possible to accommodate anyone who wants to learn! Let's get started!

After only two lessons, I can tell he's an awesome guy with a ton of enthusiasm for music and teaching. He definitely knows what he's doing, wants to share that with his students, and took the time to learn about my goals and history with performing. Went above and beyond by sending recordings of exercises to work on at home. So excited to keep working with him.

Richmond, CA

Singing has been my passion since the age of 4. The voice is very special - it empowers us to live the lives we desire, communicate with others, and express ourselves. It is my mission to help others discover and develop their voices, thereby freeing them to use it as they choose.

Beyond the functional voice, I teach performance skills, musicianship, music reading, foreign language diction, phonetics, and so much more! I have a Bachelors in Music Education, a Masters in Performance, and a performance resume ranging from jazz to opera.

I love working with singers of all ages and experience levels. I know how to engage with children and adults alike for a productive, enriching musical experience, so whether you are a sings-all-the-time 2nd grader, a recreational karaoke buff, a devoted choral singer, or an operatic baritone, you have a place in my studio.

About Paige
I'm so happy to meet you! My name is Paige, a California transplant from Texas by way of Tennessee. I've taught since 2007 and enjoy teaching singers of all ages and experience levels.

I have a Bachelors in Music Education with a K-12 certification in Vocal Education, as well as a Masters in Performance. I have a strong musical background, having sung in the Texas All - State Choir, University Interscholastic League, and National Association of Teachers of Singing.

When I am not teaching, I actively perform in the Greater Bay Area, singing jazz, choral music, and opera.

Frederick, MD

I earned my B.A. in music from Hood College and have studied with Elaine Bonazzi in New York and Ruth Drucker in Baltimore. I sang opera professionally in my twenties and have been teaching private voice lessons for fifteen years. Many of my students have gone on to music conservatories or universities for vocal performance (classical and musical theater), but if you are just looking to have fun singing that is great, too!

Note: for voice lessons I only teach female students

ONLINE VOICE LESSONS: I offer VOICE LESSONS ONLY online as piano does require a physical presence at the keyboard with the student. If you are interested in online voice lessons, there are some differences from a live lesson to consider:

During live lessons, I accompany my students on the piano for their songs. During online lessons, due to lag time and my need to clearly hear you during lessons in order to give solid feedback, you will need to have an audio source separate from whatever device you are ...

About Marie
I earned my B.A. in music from Hood College and have been teaching private voice/piano lessons and general music in schools for the past fifteen years. I sang opera professionally in my twenties and early thirties, and have taught voice to both the young beginner who just likes to sing for fun and the serious musician preparing for a career in music. I also teach beginning - intermediate piano and particularly enjoy working with children (I am a preschool teacher by day). Thanks to my background in working with young children, I understand how to pace a lesson to keep a young child interested in sitting still on a piano bench for thirty minutes straight ;)

If you are interested in piano lessons, please have either a real piano or weighted keyboard at home for practice. You will also need to purchase a few music books (about $5 each).
Voice students will need to purchase song books ($15-20) after we meet and I get a feel for the student’s range and what type of repertoire we should work on.

Note: for VOICE LESSONS ONLY I only teach female students.

I am a Bronx native professional opera-singer that has been studying singing for 10 years and playing piano since the age of 7. I have been teaching both voice and beginner to intermediate piano to all ages for five years throughout the Bronx, Manhattan, and Queens. My voice and piano lessons focus on developing a healthy technique, learning how to sight read, breathing exercises, acting, and having fun. I teach all genres and can help with audition preparation.

About Linda
Audiences throughout the U.S. have heard Ecuadorian and Puerto-Rican Mezzo-Soprano Linda C. at venues including Carnegie Hall, the U.N., Lincoln Center, the United Palace Theater, and Repertorio Español, as well as in theaters throughout Europe. Described as having a voice that is “elastic and luxurious…” (Ars Raving Mad), Linda began her 2018/19 season as a part of Martina Arroyo’s Prelude to Performance. She later went on to perform as an Apprentice Artist in Sarasota Opera’s Winter 2019 season, and just recently sang the role of María Magdalena in El Caminante de Nazaret and as a soloist in Ben Yarmolinsky's The Constitution with the Vertical Player Repertory Theater.

Linda has made appearances with the New York Lyric Opera Theater at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall and made her Italian operatic debut as La Cesca in Puccini’s Gian
ni Schicchi with Si Parla, si canta and Centro Studi Italiani in 2017.

In addition to her operatic career, Ms. C. has also showcased her vocal versatility in her concert and recital work. She has performed as a soloist with various orchestras and ensembles throughout New York City including the Mimesis Ensemble, Queens College Choral Society, Voces Unidas, and the Cantanti Project, performing in concerts, recitals and galas showcasing oratorio, new music, and Spanish opera, zarzuela, art song, popular song, and baroque music.

Her recent awards include first prize in the Friday Woodmere Music Club’s Young Artist Competition and first prize in the Bronx Arts Ensemble Young Artist Competition.

Linda received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from The Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College. She was a CUNY Macaulay Honors Scholar, Richard and Mica Hadar Foundation Scholar, and the recipient of several prestigious awards including the Jane and Paul Smaldone Memorial Scholarship, the Helene B.

I have been teaching and singing professionally for 20 years. I sung in opera houses all over the world and worked with some of the best teachers and coaches.

I have students ranging every vocal style, from Rock and Pop, to Broadway, Jazz, and Classical.

As a professional opera singer, I have traveled all over the world, sung in the leading opera houses, and worked with some of the best conductors, coaches, and teachers. I bring a weal

About Michael G.

Close

Greetings! My name is Michael Gray and I am a traveling opera singer and doctoral student at the University of South Carolina in Vocal Performance. Whether you are a beginner or an advanced student, I promise I will help you develop your voice in a healthy way that best suits your goals as a vocalist. I have been teaching in private studios, college classrooms, and more for over a decade. I've worked with students who simply want to sing at home for leisure and those who wish to perform in front of large crowds. All lessons generally go something like this...

1. Warmups (scales, vowel exercises, even a bit of yoga to engage the body)

2. Technique building (focusing on breathing, laryngeal position, resonance)

3. Application (applying the sensations of the technique building to a song)

4. Performing (once we've worked a bit, it's time to let go and sing!)

If this process sounds like something you would enjoy and would benefit you, I promise to be a patient and devoted instructor
