About Carrie
*****I don't have a current background check through take lessons but have an active ongoing background check through another employer ******

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 10 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn
a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about perfect theory and note placement it's about enjoyment. That's why I tailor make every lesson specifically based on my student's goals. I have students that like a more traditional approach so I use standard method books with them. I also have students that want to learn how to play by ear so we use a less traditional method and I teach them chord structures and how to move around easily on their instrument. My favorite thing to teach is vocal lessons but I love teaching piano and guitar also.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught on an upright piano or acoustic/electric guitar. Student should bring own guitar. No pets. Waiting room out front for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I've performed at Carnegie Hall and I've had the opportunity to work with world renowned vocal coaches. I offer that as well as techniques that I've developed to help you reach your goals quickly and with great skill !

Carrie was a great teacher for my son! It takes a special kind of person to teach my son and she did a great job at it. Unfortunately Carrie had to move and we are not able to take more lessons with her but we really enjoyed the time we had together.

About Brenda
Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you.

I have been teaching private lessons for over a decade, and have my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University. I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, and I just completed my Masters of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University.

Although I do work with students of all ages, I specialize in working with younger children and retired adults!

I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory and history and have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, do speech/accent work and more. I am constantly studying different teaching methods so I can develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and inco
rporates what you already know, with what you will need to learn in order to achieve your goals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Whether you want to play flute, clarinet, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with the styles of musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your full lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams.

*** Specialties ***
Young and beginner students.
Senior & Retired students
Students with special needs.
Performance techniques.
Audition preparation
Speech techniques (public speaking/voice-overs, etc.)
Bel Canto technique.
Performance anxiety
Life coaching!

"I would teach children music, physics, and philosophy; but most importantly music, for in the patterns of music and all the arts are the keys of learning" ~Plato

**All lessons will be scheduled in advance with confirmation of both the student and instructor.

I didn't know what to expect so I was naturally a little apprehensive. Lo & behold I quickly realized what a great teacher Brenda is. She is a natural & really has the gift of teaching ~ She easily transfers her knowledge of music & piano to her students. I'm so happy to have her as my teacher.

I just wanted one lesson as an intro to gymnastics, and Christian is great! Thanks to him I'm more confident with my backflip and with just one more lesson I believe I can get it down. Definitely recommend! I might add gymnastics to one of my hobbies thanks to him.

Classically trained with a B.A. in music with a concentration in voice, Arlette began her professional singing career at the age of 15 touring with top 40’s bands throughout Europe. By 19 she had landed her first Musical with Star Trek’s Nichele Nichols (Lt. Uhura), and also began singing jazz with Harold Land, Jr, Cleve Eaton (Bassie Band), and Jothan Callins (Sun Ra Band).

Her credits include regional performances of “Evita,” “Ain’t Misbehavin,” “Little Shop of Horrors,” and “A Chorus Line” along with solo performances at Opryland USA, Foxwoods Casino, Waldorf Astoria
Hotel, Richmond County Opera, The Cotton Club, Iridium Jazz Club, and for TOHO Entertainment in Japan. Arlette’s album credits include: “Love Again” released in 2001, and soon to be released “Windmills” both on the Renesants Records label.

LESSON STRUCTURE
Every week. I do not teach bi-monthly lessons.

A NOTE TO THE STUDENT
I am so glad that you are looking into finding a voice teacher who fits your unique style, personality, and being. I love teaching voice. I love seeing my students go from where they are when they first arrive in my studio to auditioning with confidence, or singing in Broadway shows and bands, recording albums, and participating in open mics with ease and grace. It is my sincere hope to create a singer in every family! Maybe if we have a singer in every family, there will be less violence in our sometimes turbulent world. If it is your dream to be a singer, I encourage you to pursue it with abandon!

Ms. Arlette is professional, warm and encouraging. I have to sing for a band I play an instrument with. Very nervous about the entire idea of singing. I am learning the proper way to sing, and believe I will be able to do so with the combination of technical expertise and encouragement I am receiving. I am very pleased that I found Ms. Arlette. I cannot say enough positive things about her.

About Natalie
After graduating high school at the top of my class, I got full funding for an economics degree at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I was born. I was very busy in college--my extracurriculars included 2 semesters abroad (Spain, Singapore), writing an honors thesis, being a consultant to the academic advising office, and being president of an honor society; besides this I worked my butt off in classes and graduated with a 3.7.

Besides academics, I am super interested in fitness, general wellness and psychology.

I would love to talk it out with you wherever our learning interests intersect!

I have been taking ballet lessons with Imani for the past month, and I could not be happier with the instruction that she has given me. Her attention to detail is incredible, and she is always 100% committed to perfecting my technique. She is genuinely interested in helping her students, and she even creates detailed lesson plans specific to her students. She is very personable and introduces new ballet movements and terminology in a fun and encouraging way. Also, my flexibility has greatly improved within only one month as a result of her effective conditioning that she incorporates into her lessons. I highly recommend Imani as a dance teacher! - Lauren Gold

About Jayne
I have been practicing yoga for nearly a decade, teaching for much of that. I believe in yoga as a pathway to healing and fulfillment on an individual level as well as a community level. I have personally experienced various forms of healing ranging from the loss of 125 lbs. over two years, healing from childhood trauma, breaking free from a over a decade of occult brainwashing as a youth, marriage, divorce, re-marriage, raising kids, quiting a lucrative career to homeschool, loss of parental relationships, loss of siblings, loss of ex in the line of duty, social status ups and downs, financial hardships, the list goes on! Yet through it all I have learned to continue in the good I know despite what the circumstances appear to be or how others perceive them. Yoga has taught me the storm is happening around me but inside me there is alway
s an abundance of all that I need to face it and thrive, a connection to the moment and the flow of love in the universe around me. I love sharing the healing powers of yoga with others and watch as their journeys come alive every time they step onto the mat.
