About Margo
Are you ready to fall in love with your voice? Are you ready for something different? If your voice isn’t becoming to you, YOU should be coming to ME!

I know what it's like to be frustrated with boring exercises and processes that seem to take a lot of time but yield no results. That's why I decided to teach: DIFFERENTLY!

I've invested a lot of time, energy, emotion and $$$ on big-name schools and "experts", to only be disappointed with what I was taught because a lot of the information or techniques the assigned simply didn't apply to me or my goals.

I make sure that my students are not disappointed and I offer GUARANTEED RESULTS and a lot of fun!

I have been the private vocal coach for multiple contestants on American Idol, America's Got Talent, The Voice and several other vocal competitions spanning over 10 countries
. I also train business owners, salespeople and those who are simply terrified to present themselves in the art of public speaking.

This is NOT your average coaching session! This is for those who are ready to finally overcome the world’s #1 fear: PUBLIC PERFORMANCE.
Get ready to present yourself, business, product or service with confidence, personality and effectiveness.

My lighthearted and humorous approach to seemingly stressful situations, especially in the public performance sector, have made me a highly sought-after coach for one-on-one and group training.

My approach is designed to train and condition the entire body as an instrument, not just the oral portion of the voice. My 5-octave vocal range allows me to easily instruct my students in developing their whistle register (see special pricing for whistle training). I have been trained in (and teach) Classical, Appoggio, jazz/improv, Seth Riggs' speech-level singing and other methodologies of singing and speaking.

My method of assessing and meeting the needs of each student enables me to assist them in bringing out the very best in their capabilities. If you desire quality, effectiveness and noticeable improvement in your singing, writing, public speaking or overall performance, I am the coach for you!
Whether you are a beginner or professional, I make sure that you are comfortable and have a great time while learning. I am flexible with your needs so feel free to let me know what you want from your lessons and we can work towards your goal to your satisfaction.

Not only am I a coach, I’m a professional singer and public speaker, so I utilize and perfect my own techniques on a regular basis. I have the privilege of being a classically-trained pianist and vocalist, having studied at Sherwood Conservatory of Music, Vandercook College of Music, The Second City, University of Chicago, ETA Performing Arts Center and many other fine institutions.

Children love working with me because I make learning fun and they have a high retention rate of the techniques that I teach them. I am easygoing, funny and offer a minimalist, casual and relaxed environment for everyone. My adult students have a blast because our lessons feel more like a friendly visit with lighthearted humor.

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson is tailor-made to suit the student's individual needs. Custom action plan will be given to each student on a case-by-case basis. No instruments are used in my lessons, as I train the voice to be a standalone instrument. However, if you would like to accompany yourself with a guitar, piano or percussion instrument, you are very welcome to do so.

I am available 24 hours a day for online coaching and as early as 6:00 am CST for in-person sessions.

*Please note that 15-minute sessions are ONLY available online. In-person sessions must be a minimum of 30 minutes. 31 and 61-minute sessions are ONLY for whistle register training.

Online Disclaimer:
When choosing online lessons, please make sure that your system is functioning properly, that you know how to use the platform, that you have a good internet connection and that you are logged in on time, as no concessions will be made for time used due to technical difficulties.

Timing Disclaimer:
Our time together is very valuable. If you are not on time for your session, the missed portion will not be made up at the end of the session. If I am not on time, I will make up the missed portion at the end of the session or alternate agreed-upon time. No exceptions or make-up sessions will be made for illness, weather, transportation issues (including car trouble), or any other short-notice reason. Rescheduled lessons must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance and must be made up within the calendar week of the original lesson. If it is not made up within that week, it will still count as a paid session and cannot be made up at a later time.

Liza is extremely flexible and patient. She has tailored each lesson to my specific needs and has given me tools I needed to make me a better harp player. She chooses pieces that challenge me and has allowed me to chose from several different pieces/styles that I would enjoy learning, too. If I had to miss a lesson for some reason she went above-and-beyond to accommodate a make-up lesson. She has always been very encouraging and I have loved having her has my harp teacher! --Olivia (14 years old)

About Bernadette
Hello! My name is Bernadette! I recently graduated from Regent University with my Master of Fine Arts in Acting with a Concentration in Directing. I received my B.A. in Psychology from George Mason University which I have found has been a very complimentary degree with acting.

In 2012, I taught an acting/filmmaking class at Prude Ranch Summer Camp in Fort Davis, Texas. In 2013, I taught at a very prestigious filmmaking camp at Imagination Stage in Bethesda, Maryland. I taught the children everything from producing, script writing, acting, camera operating, sound mixing, editing with Final Cut Pro X software, and I was their assistant teacher for their Animation camp as well.

I have interned for three production companies; Mirandum Pictures in Front Royal, Virginia, Michael Copon Studios in Norfolk, Virginia and at Parroco Producti
on Group, Inc. in Chesapeake, Virginia. If you are not familiar with Michael Copon Studios, the CEO Michael Copon is best known for his portrayal of the blue power ranger in the early 2000's.

I have extensive amount of training in film acting. Film acting is my sweet spot, however, aside from it I am trained in improv, stand up, theatre, teleprompter work, hosting, commercials, print modeling, sketch comedy, stage combat, etc.

My teaching style is simple, I will treat each student as an individual. No one person is the same, so therefore, I will hone in on what your goals and expectations are. I will help you achieve those goals and we will find an acting method that best suits you. There are so many different ways to approach auditioning, for example. The most important thing, I feel, is to find what works best for you, expound on that and always work towards bringing your authentic self to the table. That is what will ultimately enrichen your acting career the most and your personal life as well. Acting is one of those tools that you can incorporate into just about anything. I love it and I love what I do so, thank you for checking out my page and I hope to hear from you!

She encourages, she finds analogies to explain, she is more patient with me then I am with myself. She also explains the terms, gives tips on how to read the notes. She is able to identify the mistakes and give the right advice on how to improve. Her advice on how to practice made all the difference for me. I started with a giant cookie bite sized embouchure and within a few lessons I have managed to make it smaller thanks to her instructions. There is hope for me afterall.
Looking forward to playing a duet with her without me making a mess. Thank you Amanda!

Amanda is an outstanding teacher. She inspires and challenges me to play pieces I did not think I could play. She is able to take difficult passages and break them down step my step so I can learn how to play them properly. I am sure I would not be playing as I am now, if it weren’t for Amanda’s skilled teaching. She is also friendly, makes the lessons interesting and fun and is very professional. I have taken lessons both in person and on Skype and she excels in both modes.

About Kyle
I have been teaching and performing for over 18 years. I truly believe everyone has the potential to learn guitar. It is my personal challenge to be the guide that shows you the way to do so. It is simple, you are passionate about guitar, all you need is the guidance of an experienced teacher that cares.
My instruction is specific, sequential, demanding, and engaging.

Specific:
Being specific helps us breakdown skills, that seem impossible, into manageable exercises. I call it chunking. Once we master the chunks we put it together to easily play something that in the beginning seems so challenging.

Sequential:
That old saying, "Walk before you run", also applies to guitar! With your guitar playing goals in mind, I am always developing a sequential path, building skills that ultimately lead you to your musical goals. I
have taught students from their first lesson through to preparing for their shows in some of NYC's top music venues.

Demanding:
The sweet spot is so important in learning guitar just like any other skill. Play with less than 50% accuracy and you are developing bad habits. Play with over 80% accuracy and you are not pushing your skills. I strive to keep my students learning at the edge of their abilities, thats where all the cool stuff happens!!!

Engaging:
It all comes down to what excites you about guitar, what makes you want to wake up at 6am and practice! There are so many things to learn with guitar; it is very important that whatever you chose to learn fully engages you. Nothing is worse than learning something that you do not have a curiosity about!

Abut me:
It is my ambition as a guitar educator to radiate enthusiasm and inspire my students to obtain their musical goals. In my years as a professional musician I have gained insight on how to bring the best out of my students. In addition to performing, my teaching career has given me many wonderful experiences. I have spent many years in one of the largest guitar schools in NYC, where in addition to being a mentor to guitar teachers, I have prepared for and taught private lessons, classes, and rock bands to well over fifty students per week.

Bio:
As a freelance musician bouncing between Europe and NYC, I am extremely grateful to experience the joy of playing with many wonderful talents from around the city, country, and world.

Born in a small town in the Midwest, I grew up listening to a diverse range of music. Through my parents I was exposed primarily to Celtic, Country, Folk, and Rock music. Listening to artist from these genres of music aided in developing a musical sensibility that is continually reflected in my playing. In my teens, I was immersed in a scene that was defined by heavy guitar riffs and shredding guitar solos. Rock and metal music ruled over the local scene and would also overtake my musical interest for several years. Later, in my early twenties, I was exposed to jazz music. The new textures, sounds, and rhythms that Jazz offered, changed my playing forever. Later, I spent my mid twenties traveling the globe performing as a guitarist with recording artist from both the UK and USA. Traveling and performing helped to give me a better understanding of music and art. Now in my early thirties I enjoy teaching, recording, and making music with friends!

I should also mention I am grateful to have had opportunities to study music with many incredible mentors. These mentors have inspired and given me direction that has not only influenced his playing but also my views of art and life. In Michigan I studied with the talented classical guitarist Carlos De La Barrera of Argentina, as well as Jason Werkema, a wonderful talent and mentor to many. While performing nationally and internationally I was given the chance to study with some great innovators. Through their lessons, and music, they remain highly influential in my playing. I am grateful to have studied with Adam Rogers, Gilad Heksleman, Jack Wilkins, Julian Lage, Zvonimir Tot, and Aki Ishiguro.

If you’re like looking for an instructor for any level of guitar study, you won’t find one better than Kyle! I had the good fortune of studying guitar with Kyle in a 5-course beginner series at New York City Guitar School; then continued onto a fingerstyle class, and a 3-level Lead guitar series led by him. At every point in study, Kyle was an excellent instructor. Not only is he a consummate musician and a versatile guitar player, he also has all the qualities one would want in an effective teacher: Empathy for the beginner, patience, and a sense when it’s the time to nudge or challenge students to the next level or technique. Kyle is agile in his command of the class, in group sessions he can address each students’ needs or stumbling block in the moment, answer questions, but keep the class moving and on topic. Individual sessions are not self-conscious or daunting, as Kyle fosters a encouraging and focused look at new techniques; breaking material down into student's level of comprehension. Corrections are always edifying and done with respect. Kyle shows great examples of where a basic lesson can go in the bigger picture, often accompanying and providing progressions to practice that day’s material; so a class might feel like a little jam session rather than just repetition. All of this, and he’s also a very nice guy with a great sense of humor; class is always informative and fun. Five stars!

About Maiya
Hey there! I'm glad you're here :) If you're on this sight, it probably means you're passionate about music! So look at that, we already have something in common. Or no? Perhaps your just curious. Maybe you have always wanted to see how people can make a metal tube sing, or perhaps your precious child has been BEGGING you to take lessons but you're unsure because you know you wont be able to help them? I get it, and you are still in the right place.

I grew up around music, and was always so in love with the arts. I did everything from dance to painting but nothing compared to the profound experience of making music. Music has influenced my life in so many ways. It has always been a form of release, expression, and passion in times both good and bad. It gave me the opportunity to hear, rather than see, my own hard work bring success. It
brought me contentment where I never realized I needed it. However, there is one thing that music will never fail to bring to my life, and that is joy. My goal in pursing music is that I can help others experience that same joy, and allow music to have the same amazing impact on them as it did on me.

Sound like something you're interested in? Have questions about my experience? Maybe questions about my method of teaching? Feel free to shoot me a message and I would be so glad to speak with you about any question you may have! Let's meet so we can continue down your musical path together!
