About Karmyn
Hi! My name is Karmyn! Being a professional singer and actress I understand the need for an effective vocal technique that enables you to sing or speak consistently and confidently utilizing all of your emotional range without compromising the health of your voice. I can help you do just that!

My love of teaching began in vocal pedagogy class at Centenary College in Shreveport, Louisiana. For over 20 years I've honed my teaching skills in vocal science, ear training, and positive communication to help students do some amazing things!

Therapeutically I have helped students:
-significantly increase their range in both directions
-dramatically increase control of vocal volume and tone
-smooth vocal tone through out the register: paying special attention to smoothing the mix
-heal voices of vocal nodules or polyps without the need f
or surgery
-heal vocal issues associated with psychological stress
-learn how to find pitch easier with confidence
-learn how to find their true voice and not imitator another artist
-how to be creative in their song writing styles

My technique is two-fold:
First, I use Gary Catona’s Vocal Building method and have used it in my studio for 8 years. It is the most unique and powerful method I have ever used and it works 100% of the time. It uses Italian Vowels with specific mouth positions to scientifically build your voice and make it more powerful, effective and controlled.

Secondly, I use consonant-vowel combinations for your specific vocal diction issue. Many of the exercises come from my training with Master teacher Bill Bauer of Dallas. Many times diction gets in the way of vowel placement. This technique eliminates that problem.

**All lessons are recorded and sent to you via Dropbox or One Drive.

I am so blessed to teach students who have received full scholarships to some of the best music schools and summer programs in the world, appeared on American Idol, America’s Got Talent, The Grand Ole Opry, Off-Broadway shows, Regional and National tours, State and National Pageant competitions, and in National Commercials.

I'd love for you to join that list! All you have to do is take a lesson and practice!

If you have any questions, please feel free to message me!

Excellent 1st lesson. She was very nice, very knowledgeable, and very understanding. Explain things throughly and actually works with you. She's very organized and has a system that seems fail proof. I feel like I will definitely be making great progress and will achieve all the goals that I set out for myself plus more. I don't usually write reviews but this one was well deserved. Definitely looking forward to my next lesson and many more to come

About Helen
If you like to sing and want to learn how to be a better singer, you don't have to have any previous experience or training. I specialize in teaching beginning singers of any age how to sing using the classic technique that is the foundation for singing any genre or style of music from Bach to Broadway. You will learn how to make a beautiful sound when you sing and work on presentation, acting, diction, style, and artistry choosing music that you like and building a repertoire of music that you will enjoy singing.

Training for beginning voice students is significantly different than it is for those who have had training. Some have beautiful natural voices but they strain to hit the high notes, Exercises build breath support and slowly increase your range Music is carefully chosen to help you sing with ease build a stronger more reson
ant voice

Some children also have beautiful natural voices, but they are not ready for the kind of voice training that is appropriate for an adult. A child's voice is small in every sense of the word. They cannot produce the volume or range that an adult can without straining their voice. They can learn the fundamentals of music, how to read music, how to count, rhythm and musicality. The music chosen for them needs to be easy to sing and age-appropriate Songs that a child likes that are too high can easily be re-arranged in a different key so they can sing music that they like without straining their voice.

If you are considering voice lessons for you or your child, it is a good way to develop musicianship and build a repertoire of music that you will enjoy singing. The training will be enjoyable and very effective. You will begin to see an improvement in technique after the first lesson.

I was trained in voice performance at the Cleveland Institute of Music and hold a degree from Case Western Reserve University where in art and music theory. I have more than twenty years of professional experience including singing with a Chorale that performed with the Cleveland Symphony and performances as a soloist for choirs in Ohio and Michigan.

I founded and directed the Academie des Beaux-Arts, a performing arts school in Birmingham, and the Actors Alliance Theatre, a professional theater company that gave many young people an opportunity to gain experience working with professional actors. I have a combination of skills in voice and theater performance that sets me apart as a teacher who can help you develop a better singing voice and learn how to perform with artistry.

About Jared
Having studied directly with one of Hollywood's respected acting coaches, Gordon Michaels for two years, I went on to star in the feature film Courageous Love with Hollywood veteran Patricia Mauceri from ABC soap opera, One Life to Live. I then received the Best Actor award for two short films, one I directed and both I starred in, at the Michigan Film Society Film Challenge and both films earned nominations at the Annual Eclipse Awards 2018.

Through this experience I have developed an approach to acting that I believe to be both effective for creating convincing performances and efficient for any actor to learn from, whether beginning or experienced.

All good acting is internal, connected, and experienced; both by the actor as well as the audience and I will teach you how to do just that!

About Alan
Hi! My name's Alan. I've been a professional musician for 20yrs, & I've taught students of all ages & skill levels for 17yrs! I LOVE teaching & sharing the joys of music: the universal language! Whether you just want to learn a few basic steps to entertain friends & family, or you want to become a serious piano player, looking to perform on stage, go to school for music, or simply be the best player you can be: I can help get you there! With some hard work & dedication, you can become a fantastic piano player, & branch out into guitar, singing, brass & woodwinds... the possibilities are endless! Piano is the greatest instrument to start on, as you'll be learning to read both clefs of music. It also helps teach your brain to seperate left & right hands into doing seperate things! Music is just so much fun, whether it's entertainin
g a few friends & family, or being on the big stage under the bright lights with thousands cheering for you!! I couldn't imagine my life without the joys of music, & I sincerely hope that you consider going down the beautiful road that music can lead you down! Trust me: it's challenging at times, but man is it ever worth it!!! Music is the coolest thing I've ever undertaken, & I couldn't be more proud of all the places its taken me, & all the amazing people I've met! So: LET'S DO THIS! Sincerely, Alan M.

I have to say, I was very nervous about beginning lessons at my age. I had watched my children take music as an elective in school. They were only taught a few songs and a tiny bit of sheet music. When I contacted Alan, he was very precise about the equipment I would start with. I became more interested in moving forward with lessons knowing that he would even help me pick out my first keyboard for at home so I could take my materials home to practice.
My first lesson with Alan was wonderful! He was easy going dispite my lack of knowledge and was patient with me even when my fingers fumbled. I was having trouble getting my fingers to match what I was reading. Even though I probably was a hard first time student, he never got frustrated or disappointed with my progression. I definitely recommend an hour or more if you are a beginner as the time passes very quickly.
By my fourth or fifth lesson, I couldn't believe that I was playing my first short song and learning to read the music on sheet with ease. I practiced at home with the keyboard that Alan recommended for me (was an amazing fit, and affordable) along with the book he had me working in, a few hours during the week in between lessons. My progression surprised myself and even my kids! They were impressed with the fact that even I could now play now after only a few lessons. They had thought me a lost cause when it comes to music, as they tried to have me help and learn with them for school. After thier graduation from middle school to high school this year, two of the three decided they wanted to learn too. Sience I already had the keyboard, why not?
I continued my lessons, and they started theirs. Both of them loved it, and told me this kind of "hands on" teaching was what was missing in their school. You can't just give them an instrument and a book and say play. Soon we were taking trips together to see Alan for lessons. They are doing wonderful, as am I. My son even wants to learn "production" when he gets better at regular lessons. We each have our own books, different songs, and I even purchased another keyboard for the kids! This time a "cooler" one with effects that they love! They actually fight over the keyboard, and I have NEVER seen them fight over "homework".
So Alan, to say the least was one of the best teachers I have ever met. He was great with me and at first, my fumbling fingers, and was also "cool" enough for my kids that are at the age of beginning high school, and pretty much dislike everything. It has also created an activity for us to even do together, dispite our music choice gap!
I definitely recommend Alan and his skills that seem to never end in the music world. His patience, ability, teaching method, and diversity are an A++. Even if you are teetering on the edge of taking lessons yourself, or mabye nervous about your childs interest or skill, take it from me, contact Alan! He's the best!
Alan, if you can read this, thank-you so much for teaching us all, and see you next week!

Alan teaches my 17 yr old daughter. She has taken from him since she was 12. She had 2 teachers before him, & really learned nothing of any significance... Alan used his own methods, combined with books, & he taught her a lot of theory, & showed her how it incorporated into each piece of music! Snowing someone how something relates really helps the brain make the connection, & her progress soared! At 12, she was basically playing beginner songs, with basic chords in the left hand & very simple melodies. Now, she's playing Beethoven, Diabelli Sonatas, even a Mozart piece or two. He often spends extra time with her after the lesson time has expired, & she often wants to stay after just to get a passage right. He also has helped her with her French horn playing, & with her marching & symphonic band pieces! I can't say enough good about Alan. He's been such a big part of her life, especially in those teen years, where kids either really get along with a teacher or they just shit down! She even makes him Christmas cards! I highly recommend Alan for anyone who wants a very kind, personable teacher who can really relate & get on a level with the student, which has helped her blossom as a musician, & it's even helped her confidence! I just wanted to post this, as I know Alan is in need of more students, & I know he is a fantastic teacher.
