Nikita is an incredible teacher. He has taught me so much about control, elevating my playing greatly. He will always have more ways for you to improve, as he is very particular, yet he will continually make you excited about the violin and love what you are doing. Being under the instruction of Nikita has prepared me for college and has brought me closer to my future life as a musician. I would recommend him as a teacher to ANYBODY.

About Jeffrey
"Music is the catalyst that helps to enhance the quality of life.We as musicians and educators MUST pass it on."

I am a 27 year practicing professional musician, songwriter, arranger, and music educator. Music is my passion. I currently teach guitar, piano, and organ, and serve as minister of music and staff musician for two Chicago area church congregations. I have played guitar and keyboards for local bands, and am well versed with a variety of musical styles.

*** Lesson Details ***
I specifically tailor my lessons for each student....I do not use a "cookie cutter" lesson style. To achieve the best lesson approach for the most positive student outcome, I conduct a student assessment during the first lesson (first lessons are free for a limited time) to determine student skills, goals, and objectives. After the assessment, I
structure a comprehensive, contemporary lesson plan that includes fundamentals, technique, theory, and songs relative to the lesson in a fun and productive manner that engages the student and promotes his/her creativity.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Acoustic piano (A 440), Yamaha Digital Piano, Hammond X-C3 organ, 6 string acoustic guitar, 6 string classical guitar

*** Travel Equipment ***
My expectation would be that all students I visit in home would have an acoustic piano properly tuned, or a digital piano or keyboard with 88 weighted keys. Guitar students should have a 6 string, acoustic or electric guitar (with an amplifier).

About Rebekah
Each person has differently-shaped resonating chambers and vocal folds that make up their anatomy. The way the sound resonates inside is what gives each person his or her own unique voice. It takes a voice teacher with a specialized training in what to look and listen for to understand what is a healthy exercise and what is not. I will help you or your child achieve their goals– but also it takes daily practice to achieve desired results. It takes at least three months of training to experience measurable improvement. Please be patient and keep it up!

I help people of all ability levels:

-Improve pitch accuracy and the tone of the voice
-Increase the singing range (low to high)
-Use breath support to increase the volume of the voice
-Release muscle tension during speaking or singing
-Even out the "glitches" when singing throug
h the range
-Improve over all performance and audition presentation
-Learn to read music
-Learn to sing in harmony
-Become more confident onstage and everywhere else
-Access a brighter and bolder speaking voice (ideal for teachers, pastors, and speakers)

Benefits of studying with Rebekah at Ninth Tone Voice Studios:

The lessons will take place in the convenience of your home– so no travel necessary! Rates are competitive. I put my students' success as my first priority. The first lesson will be utilized as an introduction and consultation between the student and myself. With the knowledge attained from the first lesson, I can tailor a curriculum to fit the needs of the student. I give my students the opportunity to perform in city, regional, and state competitions, recitals, and events through my associations with NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) and MTAC (Music Teachers Association of California). These organizations also provide curriculum for the students they can strive to be successful in, and will be an essential stepping–stone to further studies in music, or for their resume in general. Students are able to strive for awards of merit that are recognized on a national level.

My students:

My students have enjoyed solos in choir, lead roles in school musicals and summer programs, solo performance showcases and successfully singing for weddings and other church programs. I have even coached public speakers to achieve a healthier and more vibrant speaking tone. I have proudly helped people become much more accurate with singing on pitch through ear-training methods.

Join My Studio

Again, I am new to the Northern San Diego / Carlsbad area and I am highly motivated to take on new students. I will do my best to challenge, encourage, and push you to achieve a higher level of singing. Please call or email me to set up a time for a lesson.

Rebekah is an outstanding instructor who pushed me out of my perceived limitations with singing. It had been years since my last formal lesson and after talking about goals and pieces we wanted to work on she was able to help cultivate a stronger skill all the while being easy to learn from. I highly suggest anyone looking to learn to sing to give Rebekah a shot! She makes the environment fun, positive and you will sing at levels better than you perceived possible if you are willing to work for it!

Rebekah was an outstanding instructor for our daughter. Our daughter was a bit difficult in the beginning putting 100% effort for the lesson. Rebekah was very keen and navigated her way through the obstacles and motivated her to be prepared and give full effort. Rebekah sets the bar high and gets her students to perform.

Rebekah was a wonderful teacher to me. I have grown children and always had singing lessons on my "bucket list". Although I have no desire to sing professionally, I always wanted to have a better singing voice so I could sing with confidence (and not embarrassment!) while worshiping at church. Rebekah understood my goals and tailored our lessons, her assignments to me and even our song choices to fit my aspirations perfectly. Her patience in moving at the pace I needed showed her maturity despite her younger age and she always provided me with honest and uplifting feedback that raised my belief that I could sing with confidence. Her move Maine is California's loss and the east coast's gain of an effective, kind and lovely instructor and person

About Catherine
I've been playing the banjo for 13 years, beginning in my hometown of Marton, New Zealand. I very quickly fell in love with the instrument and have spent a lot of my time practicing, performing, teaching, recording and collaborating with other musicians ever since. As a teenager, I was given the opportunity to travel to the United States where I attended banjo camps and got to study with some great banjo players (Tony Trischka, Noam Pikelny Alan Munde). In 2011, I graduated from the New Zealand School of Music with a BMus, majoring in Jazz Performance on the banjo. I moved to Boston shortly afterwards to pursue a career in music and have kept a busy teaching schedule privately in Boston and worldwide via Skype. I also perform throughout the United States with my bluegrass band, Mile Twelve. I'm very thankful to have met a wide spectrum of
different people while teaching the banjo and am always eager to meet more people who are interested in learning and sharing this great instrument. Please say hi if this sounds like you!

N.B If you can't see an available lesson time that suits your schedule please send me a message. My availability changes weekly depending on my touring schedule so I may have just the spot for you.

~ About the lessons
I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building strong technique and a knowledge of the bluegrass banjo repertoire. Topics we will cover include Scruggs style, melodic style, single string technique, transcribing, arranging tunes, music theory and jamming or playing well with others.

We will start with talking about how to hold the banjo, tuning the banjo, playing with fingerpicks and how to read tablature. Then we will work through your first tunes in the bluegrass style gradually learning more tunes with harder techniques such as slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs etc. I take into account each students interests and goals so we will work on specific songs you request or licks you'd like to learn. You will have slow, medium and fast recordings of each tune we work on in the lessons as well at the tablature for that tune.

I knew BB was the real deal when I hired her to record banjo on my first album 4-years ago--an intelligent player with a driving sound and warm personality. I enjoyed working with her so much that we now play music together professionally with the band Mile Twelve. In addition to her instrumental chops, she knows how to bring out the best in others. Her deep knowledge of and facility on the banjo combined with her generous and helpful disposition make her a teacher in high demand.

About Kathy
Consider me your (All Access Pass) to harnessing your full vocal potential. I started performing professionally when I was 10 years old and with over 40 years of performance experience and 18 years of teaching experience I know how to mine and develop talent.

Now just a bit about myself...though I am classically trained, I am very blessed to have grown up in a musical family who appreciates all types of music. So at home we'd jam out to Jazz and Blues, but it was my classical training that allowed me to excel in my craft. I learned how to carry the skill sets from my classical training into multiple genres of music. In doing so I earned awards on the local, state and regional levels, opening doors for performance opportunities on stages both here, at home, and abroad.

In 1998 I decided to open a voice studio, determined to create
a learning environment that would blend the discipline of sound technique with a fun, relaxed atmosphere, free of negative critique. Here I am 18 years later and still going strong!

I am looking for goal oriented students, who are serious about mastering their instrument and willing to work hard to get there. Are you that person?

If so, I would love to hear from you.

From, my daughter, Hannah’s, first lesson with Kathy I KNEW I had found the right vocal instructor. Hannah climbed into the car after the lesson, face beaming, and the first words out of her mouth were… “Thank you, Mom for finding her.”

Hannah’s always been very active in and out of school in all things related to theatre and music, but she’s not always had the confidence necessary to land the acting roles or singing solos that she wanted. After she started studying with Kathy all of that changed. Armed with new singing and performance techniques she began getting solos and acting roles that in the past would have been out of her reach.

Hannah auditioned for a local telethon. When we arrived I was invited to sit in on her audition, which never happens. I was completely blown away and reduced to tears as she sang a jazz song with a very complicated scatting section. I didn’t feel like I was watching Hannah, I felt like I was watching a professional. She was accepted, and on the day of the telethon she performed the jazz piece from her audition as well as a contemporary broadway piece which reduced me to tears.. Yet another milestone in her journey. To say I was blown away would be an understatement and it was on that day that I realized my daughter, because of Kathy’s investment, could go on to do extraordinary things.

As the weeks passed Hannah focus on her craft began to intensify even more. She literally spent hours in her room practicing and I could tell, from listening, that as she was giving it everything she had, her hard work was already beginning to pay off. The evidence of that came as she auditioned for, and was accepted into, All National Choir, All Eastern Choir, and All State Jazz Choir. An even greater test of how much her abilities had grown came when she auditioned and was accepted into Berklee School of Music. I’m such a proud Mama!

Kathy has been a mentor for Hannah not only with regards to singing and performance, but also has become a friend who’s willing to go the extra mile to see Hannah succeed. She has taught her to believe in herself, to believe that she deserves what she wants and that, with hard work and humility, she will go far. Over the past year I have watched Hannah bloom into a confident, hardworking young lady. I am beyond thankful for Kathy and all that she has done for my daughter. I wish I had found her sooner!

Just had an opportunity to go to my daughter's first recital after signing her up for singing lessons with Kathy, and we were absolutely amazed at how much better she had become after only a couple of months - and everyone in our church has noticed it as well. It seems to me like Kathy finds a very good balance between the rigorous basics of voice training, and just having fun and exploring what the student wants to do. I am very happy we found her.

About Joseph
I am a musician educator and performer that loves working with individuals from the young child to professionals. I taught public school for 12 years and then at The College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY for the last 14. My degrees were from Western Michigan University (Bachelor of Music), Indiana University (Masters in Secondary Education) and Ball State University (Doctorate of Arts). During my teaching career, I also gave private lessons outside of the school and the college. When I left NY, I had 35 students of which 6 remain with me online. Having now relocated to Oahu, Hawaii I am looking to add private students. I love teaching and believe in creating an atmosphere where the students, regardless of age, feel successful in their endeavors.

WHAT DO I DO?
Currently, I am the Coordinator for Music Therapy at Hospice Hawaii and the Dire
ctor of Music at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Honolulu.

WHAT DO I TEACH?
I teach piano, organ, and voice.
*Piano: All levels from beginning to professional
*Organ: All levels from beginning to professional
*Voice: Beginning and those working with music theater

WHERE DO I TEACH?
*Piano: At my home in Mililani, St Peter’s Episcopal, and online
*Organ: St. Peter’s Episcopal and possibly online
*Voice: St. Peter’s Episcopal and possibly online
NOTE: Parents are more than welcomed to attend the lessons!
In fact, I encourage that!!

WHAT IS MY STYLE OF TEACHING?
Every student is different and what works with one may not work with another. It's important for me to know my students so I can better shape the lesson. I love questions, reflection, and even humor. I'm also very patient and understanding. We are all very busy and accept that students may have weeks they can't practice a huge amount of time. As long as some progress is made at lessons, all is well!

AER THERE RECITALS? ... Absolutely. You work hard at your lessons and it’s great to show your talent! Recitals will be at St. Peter’s Episcopal. I’m going to have a recital for my online students soon to see how that goes.

My daughter started taking piano lessons from Joseph when she was 5 and she has been with him for 11 years. She has taken lessons both in person and online, and both formats work well. He has kept her captivated with piano and fueled her love for all music in general. Students are treated respectfully and he makes piano fun for them. As a parent, I appreciate his organizational and communication skills. He is a genuine, nice person who is easy to work with. Highly recommended!

Caitlyn is by far the most knowledgeable instructor that I have come across. She immediately corrected my sons posture, the way he held his instrument, and the way he blew into the flute. After that I saw a drastic change. Not only that, she is patient and makes the lessons fun. I also love the fact that she can tell when he isn't practicing and she gives immediate feedback. I recommend Caitlyn 1000%. My other children will definitely take lessons from her as well.
