About Tyanna

I've been teaching private lessons since 2005 and have loved helping my students learn proper vocal technique, music theory & ear training, as well as ace an audition! I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in vocal music from North Carolina Central University. I'm an energetic and fun person and my teaching style too! My aim is to provide you with the skills to make you more confident in your singing voice. I look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

What to expect:

I like to start with a light physical warm up. Then, we will move on to some vocal exercises. After we're fully warmed up,
we will then work the song of your choice. Have upcoming auditions? No problem! I can help you prepare for your audition or performance! Grab yourself a bottled water, and get ready to sing!

Kirk H.

Raleigh, NC

About Kirk

Hi! I'm Kirk. I've been playing guitar since 1988 and teaching professionally since 2000. I earned a B.A. in music and a minor in jazz studies from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington where I studied with Bob Russell and received the Talent Deserving Wider Recognition Award. Additionally, I've studied privately with Jonathan Kreisberg, Michael Daves, Rebecca Kane, and Lucius Wilson. I've held teaching positions at various music stores, private music schools, churches, teacher collectives, and independently.

I teach rock, blues, jazz, folk, soul, and pop guitar lessons for all ag
es and skill levels. Both acoustic and electric guitars are welcome. My teaching style combines the best elements of conservatory training, popular guitar methods, and informal jam sessions to create a fun and educational music experience. Topics for lessons include music theory, note reading, ear training, technique, improvisation, and songs that each student wants to play. My goal is to create a relaxed and fun atmosphere where musical excellence is pursued.

I think it makes sense to study with a teacher whose playing style you like. I would describe my playing as a tasteful and soulful mix of jazz, blues, classic rock, soul, and folk. Some of my biggest influences are Jerry Garcia, Duane Allman, Mick Taylor, Jimi Hendrix, Wes Montgomery, Charlie Parker, and John Coltrane.

I'm a dedicated music educator with many years of experience in helping students achieve their goals. I'd love to help you reach yours. Drop me a line to get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a nice teaching space in my living room. Basic setup: two chairs and a music stand. I have my computer handy to play any musical examples.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my guitar, playing accessories, and any new material to the lesson when I travel. Please have a room with two chairs, a music stand, your guitar, playing accessories, and recommended material ready for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in popular music and styles from the rock, blues, jazz, and folk genres. Main topics include music theory, note reading, technique, and improvisation.

Charles N.

Raleigh, NC

About Charles

Charlie is a certified music teacher, who teaches in areas surrounding Clayton and travels to teach in the Raleigh and Knightdale areas. He first began teaching guitar and piano during his music studies at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS. At the university and after receiving his degree in music education, he has taught and performed in various musical settings and venues which has included the genres of classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk and country. Besides teaching and performing, Charlie also is a songwriter who writes songs for his groups performances and
teaches his more advanced students songwriting.

Drawing upon his education and experiences as both performer and teacher, he strives to relate his background to his student's learning experiences and progress. As each student comes with his or her individual musical wants and interests, student lessons are designed to meet these needs of a particular student. Charlie has young students of ages 5 to 14 as well as students of upper ages. According to a student's level of musicianship (beginner, advanced or in between), students are taught how to read music, music theory in relation to their progress, chords, scales and how to write/compose their own songs. He has designed a method of teaching which is full of great musical exercises & fun illustrations for the young student to enjoy while learning skills on their instrument.

For example, students can began with simple fingerings of chords & beginning melodies played in slow rhythms to allow the student to develop at a comfortable pace. Students that can not read music notation begin simple reading exercises of note recognition, time signatures, note values, eye hand coordination and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
I design student lessons according the age, playing level and music related interests as lessons can cover a broad range of interests and musical styles. For my beginning students- to develop their understanding of playing chords and rhythms,
I teach chords as they relate to musical keys and some common rhythm patterns used in many popular songs.

For guitar students, I have designed & developed my own materials for guitar (sheets & accompanying CD) which guide students in practicing chords progressions, strum/rhythm patterns & scales/melodies in relation to chords. My students have shown much success in these methods of concentrating on developing that essential sense & feel for playing different rhythm styles. Piano instruction is centered on learning to read music notation and music theory as it relates to the student's progress.

As students advance, more emphasis is placed on improvising on melodies, different approaches to soloing and chord extensions and substitutions. Also, students are taught music theory as it relates to their progress to enable them to create their own music.

I have a good selection of method books and materials to fit each student's level of musicianship and choice of playing style(s) to extend upon their interests and goals.

My approach to teaching is to make lessons fun and enjoyable in a comfortable and relaxed setting to allow the student full
concentration on each lesson. But, also to provide the necessary guidance and encouragement to challenge and motivate students to improve and develop natural strengths and new skills.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a good selection of materials (many I've developed), extra instruments if needed and recording equipment. The student will need the instrument and an amp for electric guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Teach theory as relates to students progress- examples, chords as relate to major scales, understanding of I IV V chords
in popular music genres, develop knowledge of chords & rhythmic sense before learning songs. I teach in styles of blues,
rock. jazz, country and classical.

I began piano lessons with Charlie as a total beginner and he quickly helped me find my footing. He was always patient and encouraging and asking questions designed to make sure the lessons were structured in a way that would most efficiently achieve my own personal goals. I'm usually a pretty nervous person, but Charlie has a warm presence that makes it easy even for people like me to be able to open up and focus on what's important, the music. I highly recommend him to anyone who's been thinking about learning the piano but hasn't quite been able to take the plunge yet.

We enjoy having Mr. Charlie come to our house and teach our 5 year old son Xavier how to play the piano. He makes sure our son stays focused and goes at a pace that works for him. Xavier has learned a lot, and we are grateful to Mr. Charlie.

Excellent instructor, very relaxed atmosphere and provided a lot of good information. Especially liked that fact that he took the time to cover what was needed rather than strict adherence to the clock. Highly recommend his as a music instructor.

Victoria K.

Raleigh, NC

About Victoria

I've been teaching piano since 2012 and have been playing since 2000, although my first instrument was the clarinet, which I began learning in 1996. I assisted the high school director in leading the band class whenever he was absent or otherwise occupied. I've got two years' college courses in piano and music theory, one bachelor's degree in philosophy and religious studies, many courses in sociology with an award of excellence from the department of sociology from Valdosta State, and finally a degree in Visual Communications with concentration on photography from Savannah College of Art and
Design.

My strongest teaching area is in music because I have years of experience performing and teaching it. My next strongest is photography because it is my profession and I have years of extensive training and experience in it. My final proficiency probably lies in writing, because my degree and coursework in the philosophy and religion program involved so much of it.

I look forward to helping you!

It was our pleasure to meeting you and thank you for your warm welcoming, my daughter was very happy for learning piano. When she met her dad, she told him about the class and invited him to come and watch her playing. She is looking forward for the next class.
As mom, I judge by reading my daughter, and I think we found the best teacher in town.
