Private Classical Voice Teacher

I can help you develop the discipline to increase your range and technical performance with sight singing and ear training

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.

Aleksis taught three consecutive lessons to our 9, 11, and 14 year old - two piano and one guitar. He was professional, patient, and fun. Kids enjoyed having him so off to a good start.

Lessons with an emphasis on healthy technique/the foundations of singing. I can assist with learning notes, rhythms, musicality, foreign language, and more.

About Rachel

Hi! My name is Rachel, and I have been teaching lessons professionally for over 10 years now. My primary instruments are voice and piano, and I also teach music theory/ear training/musicianship skills. I earned my degree in vocal performance from James Madison University, where I taught lessons to non-music majors as well as tutored general music for the student population. I also hold a masters degree in voice performance and pedagogy from the Peabody Conservatory. I would describe my teaching style as fun and relaxed, with a strong emphasis on healthy technique. I believe that all students should have a strong technical foundation, and that begins on day one. Genres I teach include classical, musical theatre, pop, and accompanying skills for pianists. I can also help with audition prep on both instruments. I look forward to meeting with

you!

Private Classical Voice Teacher

A student’s learning experience should be fun, exciting and inspiring, as well as stimulating and challenging. Over the years, I have come to realize that all students respond differently to concepts and materials presented in studio or class, depending on their backgrounds, interests, and learning styles. Prior knowledge has a significant effect on a student’s perception of new information, and therefore, instruction should be flexible and uniquely tailored to address each student’s needs, goals, strengths, and weaknesses.

In teaching the vocal technique, I frequently utilize my science background in my teaching, especially when explaining scientific concepts such as the acoustics of sound and its relation to singing; however, I also acknowledge the fact that some students respond much better to other teaching methods. I always aim to be well-equipped to present the information through multiple approaches and tools, which include imagery and metaphors.

I firmly believe that ...

Private Classical Voice Teacher

I am a recent graduate of the Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore, having studied in the studio of the renowned opera singer Denyce Graves and her teacher Margaret Baroody. While I loved classical music and musical theatre, I became incredibly involved in the a cappella community and eventually founded my own professional group: Ember Vocals. We have travelled across the country singing pop, R&B, folk, jazz, gospel, and country genres for audiences of all types. I can help you sing anything from Puccini to
P!nk, and everything in between.

About Alyce

I am a classically trained graduate from Peabody Conservatory who studied with Margaret Baroody, a seasoned vocal pedagogy professor, and Denyce Graves, a famous opera singer who debuted Carmen at the Metropolitan Opera. While I've been in many operas and musicals and am very comfortable singing classical repertoire, I am the director of an a cappella band called Ember Vocals in the Baltimore area who sings our own original music including pop, jazz, R&B, among many other genres. I have travelled across the country performing popular styles for many different audiences, and can help any student conquer performance anxiety as it was something I overcame over years of practice. Whether your focus is Puccini or pop music, I can truly help you achieve your goals in singing.

Private Classical Voice Teacher

Nobody has the same voice nor body type, and this is why every individual needs a different approach to singing techniques based on their features. I've been teaching all types of voice and genre for years and promise you will experience a lesson that fits you perfectly.

About HaYoung

As a music teacher, I value the relationship with the student the most. How much the student could open up to the teacher and feel comfortable sharing their thoughts is very important. These communication skills lead to an efficient learning experience and an assertive attitude towards music/singing. I'm looking forward to work with students who are ready to explore with me.

"Ms. Risling really helped my daughter develop her voice. She was also very accomodating and flexible in regards to scheduling."
Theresa
"I have been training with Corinne for a couple of weeks now and I've already learned so much! She is such a friendly and warm person and also has huge amo
unts of knowledge about singing. She hears what is going on with my voice and guides me towards the right direction. The 30 minutes I come in are effective and we already have a few songs that I can sing at future auditions.

I highly recommend Corinne as a voice teacher!"

Doris
"My daughter likes the lesson very much. Thank you"
Joe Laurenzano
"In just a few short months I can't believe how much I've learned from Jessica. My technique has improved; my tone in the upper part of my range has impro
ved; how to keep my tongue from getting in the way / impeding the sound; so many aspects of singing. When I started my lessons I was particularly concerned that I might be doing something that was tiring my voice and causing it to lose volume. Jessica's knowledge of and ability to demonstrate proper singing technique helped me through that concern and I know I am a "healthier" singer now. Knowledge and ability aside, her approach is also very patient and very encouraging. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in improving their technique, tone, range, artistic ability, etc."

Lamont
"The voice is very technical but yet very vaguely understood in terms of what one should do to obtain what needs to occur, in order to produce what is expe
cted, and Troy understands how to interpret what is needed in order to produce what should occur."

"Sarabeth really knows her stuff. Down to the specific mechanics of the voice, she was able to provide vocal exercises to help me reach my goals. Now I can
properly work on extending my range on my own time.

She also helped me identify some problems with my breathing that I wasn't even aware of. Not only does she know a lot about classical voice technique, but she knows how to apply those principles to the male voice.

Definitely would recommend!"
