I've been singing since I was six and started to take professional lessons from professors when I was 13. I am able to give you a strong foundation to pursue you singing career. I focus on breath support, technique and music theory. After every lesson you will have a recording in wav. format to listen back to. I also create demos for my students.

I'm currently working on a Master's Degree in Music Production and Sound Design at The Academy of Art University, freelancing as a pianist/vocalist, and I'm working on and recording a second album.

I started singing, playing piano, and composing music when I was seven years old. Throughout my musical career, I have performed and collaborated with various rock bands, classical trios, vocal ensembles, churches, and theater groups.

My Education includes Berklee College of Music, Academy of Art University, McNally Smith College of Music, MCTC, and Full Sail University (BS and AAS degrees in Music Performance, Sound Arts/sound Engineering, Music Production).

I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them.

Our first piano lesson with Tamara was really pleasant. She was very welcoming and attentive the whole time. I can tell my son was really enjoying the lesson. The details with the progress sheet and flash cards she provided was a plus for me. Her studio space also made the experience really great!

This was my daughter's first class, and she loved it.
My daughter was trained in opera, and was looking for a teacher who will help her do the transition to musical theater. Well, she has found such teacher.
Ms. Barbara not only has the educational background to help her, but also has a wealth of knowledge thru her personal experience as a musical theatre performer.
Personally, I do not think that we could have found her without the help of take lessons.com because we live in another city. Thank you,

I have been teaching all levels of voice for over 15 years with emphases on Breathing, Posture, Vocal Production, Sight Singing, Diction using the International Phonetic Alphabet (IPA), and Performance Techniques. I also teach fundamental piano with emphases on the Musical Alphabet, Hand Position and Finger Numbers, Rhythm in Music, Beginning Music Theory, Scales, and Performance Techniques. My purpose for teaching voice and piano is to fulfill the need for quality performing arts instruction. My goal is to train and assist artists in the development of their instruments through individual instruction, practice, and performance.

About Annie
I am a professional singer, songwriter, voice and piano teacher, and guest soloist at the Historic First Congregational Church of Detroit. I have a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music, where I studied voice with Robert Powell and Helen Laird, and I was mentored by Maestro Max Rudolph, conductor of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, with whom I made my professional singing debut in Beethoven's Ninth Symphony as the lead soprano. I was awarded the Bertha Bauer Full Four-Year Scholarship and the John A. Hoffman Award for highest GPA in Voice. I won the Martha Baird Rockefeller Music Fund Award and the Jean Tennyson Music Award for outstanding accomplishments in music. I was guest soloist with the Washington National Symphony in Baltimore, the New York Youth Symphony, the
Rochester Symphony, and the Cincinnati Music Festival. I also represented the United States in the International Competitions in Montreal, and I was a finalist in the coveted Metropolitan Opera auditions in New York. I was contracted with the Deutsche Oper am Rhein (the German Opera on the Rhine Company), where I was the leading young dramatic soprano, and I toured with the company seven years.

I received my Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Wayne State University College of Fine, Performing and Communication Arts, where I performed various opera roles and studied Vocal Pedagogy. I was guest soprano with the Rackham Symphony Orchestra and Friends of the Opera in Dearborn, the Menc conference, and the Kerrytown Concert House in Ann Arbor. I was also artistic director of the Arts Center Music School in Detroit where I taught all levels of voice and fundamental piano. One of my voice students is enrolled in a major music school in New York, another is a songwriter and recording artist in Detroit, and another recently auditioned and was accepted into the Mosaic Youth Theater in Detroit.

In addition to guest solo appearances, I currently have two works in progress, including, a monolog with my original composition, and a demo for a new CD featuring my original compositions.

About Helen B.

Franklin, MI

View Full Profile

Classic singing technique and performance skills are at the heart of what I teach. Lessons start with exercises that help you learn how to take deep natural breaths and use your diaphragm to support your voice. Vocal exercises will help you develop the quality of your voice and increase your range making it easier to hit those high notes. You will also learn how to use phrasing as you sing to put feeling into the words and connect with the audience. As your voice develops you will build a repertoire of music in any style that you like to sing.

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 with Marie-Simmelink Kraft, a Mezzo-Soprano who performed with the Cleveland Orchestra and other Synphony Orhestras throughout the world. I hold a degree from Case Western Reserve University where I studied art and music theory. I have more than twenty years of professional experience that inclues 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.

What can I say about Kalyse because there are not enough words to do so, however I will try and sum it up. Kalyse is truly gifted in many areas from acting to musical. Her acting skills are phenomenal and her voice is simply amazing on all levels. She is multitalented, innovative, assertive, and very caring. I would recommend anything on the spectrum for her.

About Micah C.

Jacksonville, AR

I am currently teaching vocal music in North Little Rock School District. Lessons will include breathing technique and vocal fundamentals. We will pace lessons based on goals set at the beginning of your first lesson and continue creating more goals as you develop as a musician. I am willing to teach various genres of music. Cannot wait to know you and help you find your voice!

About Micah
I have been teaching music for a few years now! I enjoy music so much! I received my degree from the University of Arkansas Little Rock. I am also a member of the worship band at my church.

One thing that I enjoy the most, as a teacher, is seeing growth and seeing students get that “aha” moment. The most amazing thing about teaching is being able to see the joy in students as they perform. They get to be themselves. Playing an instrument or singing is raw, vulnerable and takes a lot of hard work.

Being a musician is worth it. You get to be able to express yourself in ways impossible otherwise.

Please let me help you along your journey to become the musician you dream to be.

About Joanne L.

Sun City, AZ

I take the protection of a person's voice seriously. My technique focuses on guidance in the how to, rather than specific to a song. This way the individual can sing just about any type (genre) of music and, if using the techniques provided, can be sure to protect their voice for a lifetime.

About Joanne
I have been singing since the age of 4. Singing is almost like breathing to me. First and foremost, I thank God for this unimaginable gift that I can carry with me wherever I go. I grew up singing in church and that is my most important service but I have also done musical theatre, barbershop, and formal classical singing. I give back to my God, what He has given and try to do it with excellence! I have done solo work and have sung in a 200 voice traveling choir - all to the glory of God. The genres that I have covered in my time of singing have been numerous. From classical to country and just about everywhere in between.

I have sat under the direction of some excellent teachers and thank God for them in my life. I minored in music in college, but have gleaned so much more knowledge outside of the classroom. In previous vocal
lessons my most favorite part is when the student finally understands and their gift is what it was meant to be. I love people and will always do my best to encourage positively. I look forward to meeting with you and discussing your goals.

For male students, lessons are offered online only

Joanne is the first and only vocal teacher who has actually l listened to me sing. She was very perceptive and recognized one of my most need singing skills has not yet been mastered: controlled breathing. She gave me lots of activities to practice to develop this requisite skill, as well as a few others to direct me on the right path for a beginner singer. Joanne has excellent interpersonal skills which allowed me to feel comfortable through out my entire lesson.

Over the years I've taken voice lessons to improve core skills. Not all voice teachers are the same! I started with Ms. Rapanan’s group class just to check out her skills and style of teaching. I discovered a truly great teacher who integrates her long-earned breadth and depth (classical to pop) styles of singing into her teaching methods. This is rare! I truly enjoyed her challenging and inspiring me to push my limits. And, she's fun to work with. She has a high-energy positive teaching style. Maybe what I like most is that she personalized my lessons; taking into account my particular voice, style, and, limitations/strengths. I have not found these teaching attributes elsewhere; knowledgeable with great command. Since she is a serious -but loads of fun- teacher, I totally endorse her for serious and committed students.
