With playing piano for Nearly 20 years and teaching Piano for 10 years, not only with the student come out gaining skill and knowledge but they will want to actually practice at home!

About Rosita
I have been singing and studying voice for over 23 years since I was a child! I hold a Bachelors from Musicians Institute and other accomplished degrees from American Musical Dramatic Academy to conclude my quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian) I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!
I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on short anime films and musicals to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene. My passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving me to share the gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities and
hidden artistic desires. I am currently writing a musical which will be debuting in 2020. I'm currently the vocal coach/Trainer and choir director at Iglesia Elim Central.

I will make sure my students have fun and help them get in the right track to their musical goals.

Also, I constantly upload videos on Singing, The Spanish Language, and Japanese! So keep Checking in! It ranges on tips and answering the most common questions on those particular subjects!

Also There are discounted rates for worship teams and church choirs. For more information please contact me through the "Ask a Question feature"

*** Lesson Details ***
I do my absolute best to create a positive atmosphere for my students. Even when the students feel frustrated or stressed, it is important to inspire them and give them the fuel that they need. Though I am strict when it comes to homework and their about their studies. Every lesson at the beginning I will review what we learned previously and test them.
then begin with proper breathing technique exercises, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons. My goal is for them to gain the knowledge that they need to help reach their artistic goals.
With all my lessons every student will be taught a basic run down of Music Theory. My students will always progress in what they do. They will have the discipline that they need and yet have fun and be filled with inspiration. Which is the most important thing, to be Inspired to do better.

*** Studio Equipment ***
iMac, condensing mic...performing mic, keyboard, mixer...living room of apartment.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I do have a portable keyboard. Though I do expect the student to have their own recording device and karaoke tracks. At Home I do have a studio, and if the students has an iPod or an Mp3 player I can attach it to a device where all of us can hear the tracks. I do have a recording studio as well.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Musical Theatre, and Pop rock genres. When I teach my students I always have them learn a song of another language whether it's Spanish or Japanese. It helps with diction when they learn a song outside the English Language. Also It helps them to learn another Language at the same time. Also I give them a little anatomy class when they are learning how to sing. I give them a model of the vocal Chords and different areas of the Larynx and which part works for the chest voice and the head voice.

I'm a Public Speaker and I always lose my voice after 45 minutes. As I was talking to one of my clients she recommended me to go to a vocal trainer and I associate vocal trainers as a singing teacher. But to much of my surprise they train people to do both! So I began searching for a Vocal Trainer and found Rosita. She is very uplifting and patient. Her direction is incredibly helpful. Her weekly goals, telling us the physical vibrations we need to aim for.Rosita is truly out of this world!

Thank you!

Roberta is amazing! I went to her for a little more than 3 years for voice (and piano for a little bit) and she is very helpful, skilled, friendly, knowledgable, and fun. She helped me get into my top choice college as a choral music major with a full tuition scholarship and supported me the entire way. Roberta knows how to work with any voice with any level of experience of any age. Not only is Robera a fantastic teacher; she is also very understanding and a great person to talk to. I would highly recommend her to any student in the area.

My goal is to give your child a fun, creative, and relational environment to enhance the piano learning experience. Every lesson is filled with tools and games for your child to use on their piano at home when they practice. Whether your child is beginning or has played for a while, they will learn ear training, music theory, technique, and composing basics.
I want to use my 20 years of experience playing the piano and 7 years of experience teaching, to engage your child in the learning environment.

About Hannah
Hello! I look forward to meeting you and your child! I'd love to do introductions in person, but let me tell you a few things about me: 

I am a Michigan-born twenty-something who recently got married. Before moving to Kentwood to live with my husband, I taught piano at Marshall Music in Kalamazoo and was an Administrative Assistant at a local church for about 4 years. Before that I received my Bachelors in Business Administration and a Minor in Music at Indiana Wesleyan University. I was homeschooled all the way from Kindergarten to 12th grade and graduated with my other homeschool friends. 

I took piano lessons for about 20 years and learned a several things from my amazingly talented teachers. Here are a few: one, develop a relationship with your student by having conversations about everyday life, two, have a great structured rew
ard system for students who practice, and three, ALWAYS have fun. 

There are a few things on the side that I like to do or have done in the past (this information might be useful to tell your son or daughter). I was a very busy homeschool student. Sports were very important to me growing up, I did softball, volleyball and soccer. I also was highly involved in performing arts. I currently enjoy doing crafts like sewing, card making, refinishing furniture, and cooking/baking. I am also a pet lover! 

I can't wait to learn more about you at our first lesson.

Hannah is a very sweet and patient young lady. I took piano lessons from her a few years ago. I didn't know how to read music and had never played before. At age 60 it was one of the things I wanted to accomplish on my bucket list. She helped me achieve that.
I highly recommend her for anyone. Young or old!

Greetings! I specialize in introducing beginners to piano, and have worked with students as young as two and a half! If you're looking for a teacher who makes learning to play piano fun, then please contact me!

I recently filed a patent for an easy-to-read music notation system for beginners, which is so easy that 4 year olds can read and play songs on their own! The basic idea is that just playing the instrument is much easier than reading the notes. For example, instead of reading classical notation, a lot of guitarists play very complex music using tablature, which is a way of writing notes using numbers instead of dots on a staff; it writes music in a language they can already read, so that's what I did with piano, then violin, viola and cello.

Students around age 10 and under have a hard time orienting the piano staff because lower notes go left on the keyboard and higher notes go right, so I start young students by orienting the piano staff in the same direction as the ...

About Zach
I play violin, viola, cello, guitar and piano. I love classical music (especially Bach), improvising on the piano, Irish fiddle music on the violin, and Spanish guitar!

Since 2002, I’ve taught more than 23,000 lessons. From 2009-2012 I owned and operated a set of three fine arts centers for kids across West Michigan called Lil’ Learners. I currently teach 50+ students each week online, in my home studio, at Keyboard World, and for Hamilton Schools Homeschool co-op and Niles’ Homeschool Partnership.

I also own and develop ExactNotes.com, which is the online home for my patent-pending music notation.

The piano is a wonderful instrument with an incredibly vestile range of abilities. The piano has the potential to produce some really beautiful and inspiring music but there is also a lot to know. In piano lessons, I'll provide highly valuable instruction and guidance on the key aspects of playing the piano: interpreting a piece of music accurately and with artistic expressiveness, improving technical ability, learning methods for efficient fingering and effective pedaling technique, developing greater control over emphasis, dynamics, and timing, and even strategies for physically improving and safely caring for your hands, fingers, and forearms. If you are a beginner and aren't sure what all those things mean or if they would apply to you, that's fine too. I also offer introductory instruction on how to read music and get started playing the piano.

My teaching philosophy is to meet the student where they are at and develop incremental, progressive strategies for meeting the unique
