Kirstin R.

Milwaukee, WI

I teach students from beginner to advanced the art of singing. We work through the technical concepts of breathing and truly supporting the sound. I help students develops ways to learn music independently. In addition, I help students to develop their musical skills through a wide variety of vocal repertoire from classical to folk to musical theatre selections. We also work with Alexander Technique to help for an easy, relaxed sound.

About Kirstin

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring music books and a music stand for their music. I expect the student to have some sort of piano or keyboard that we can work with. For online lessons, I have a piano but ask that students have a camera and microphone on computer. Students must have rehearsal copies of music and may need to purchase books after a period of time.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical voice. I can also teach in popular music and Broadway theatre styles. I have studied some Alexander Technique in my own training and seek to incorporate those teachings into lessons.
Having dealt with voice issues in my own vocal training, I am comfortable working with students who may be coming off of voice trauma. I also teach other styles of music, including pop, country, and jazz. In addition to teaching voice, I am able to teach other music related courses, including Theory and History.

Kirstin took a long time to respond to my requesting lessons (I actually had to call customer support to get her to respond). Then she rescheduled my first lesson twice, so that my first lesson would have been three weeks after signing up. I got a new teacher before that lesson. I never had a lesson with her, she might be great, I never got to find out.

Susan L B.

Milwaukee, WI

About Susan L

I have a broad classical education with a great deal of music experience. I received my professional education in the University of Oregon's School of Music, where I specialized in Opera Performance and Languages, and at the Music Conservatory in Perugia, Italy. I also studied History and Philosophy, History of Performance Techniques, Acting, Italian and French diction and phonics, and Music Performance Theory. While in Oregon, I performed with Eugene Opera! Company and the Oregon Symphony. I am a Certified Singing Vocal Specialist, familiar with Speech Level Singing, and the Estille philosoph
y. I also have experience as a Music Librarian, specializing in music manuscripts, recordings, indexes and scores.

Academic tutoring and Private Piano, Keyboard, and Voice Lessons are available, weekly or bi-weekly, using solid classical technique. Training in Opera arias, and Broadway songs, Ballads or Jazz. For children I can teach reading, writing, piano, music appreciation, reading sheet music, written music theory, ear training, different styles of music and rhythm, or the cadences and intonations and rhythms of Romance languages.

Vocal Training is also available for Pageant Preparation, College Preparation, Actors, Audition Preparation, Corporate/Public Speaking, and ESL practice. I have experience teaching English, and can teach you advanced English pronunciation and grammar. I also teach English literature and poetry. All ages are welcome to inquire.

I believe in a holistic physical approach to singing. Your body is your instrument, and whole body exercise is essential to building stamina, and I can direct that development. With increasing strength and deep breathing, a singer can relax, and the sound will carry. There will be no need to strain when "belting" with proper preparation and technique, and you will be heard in the back row! It is also ideal to understand the words and their meanings in each phrase of the music or selection. I can help you interpret songs or audition pieces in a variety of languages. You will learn the natural pacing of each song and explore the meaning and emotional effect you can express! Each voice is unique. Let's work together to find music which is uniquely suited to your voice!

I took voice lessons from Ms. Richie for almost 5 years while she lived in Jacksonville, Florida. Her ability to listen and then focus on specific vocal issues allowed me to progress without the hoarseness I had experienced in the past. She is cognizant of the vocal problems, and potential issues, associated with young singers and the aging singer - And with her background in vocal pedagogy she is able to teach the singer to sing without "forcing" the voice. She is an excellent teacher of Italian and Latin and with her help and guidance I now understand how to approach the singing of both. Vowels and "open space" now come easily to me because of the exercises I was taught. I highly recommend her as a vocal coach and I am sad she has moved from my area.

About Paul

***My goal as a teacher***

I try to teach what the students are interested in and make it fun and interesting so that they learn the lessons and their favorite songs. Every student is different and needs to be taught in a way that makes learning easy and fun for them.

I have a passion for all people and all ages and am blessed to be able to teach from the very young, (ages 2-5 Kindermusik lessons) to teens and adults.....all the way to senior citizens. I've had many older students all the way up to a 93 year old gentleman who is taking singing lessons and asked me to put music to his l
yrics. We have recorded over 50 songs together.

***Background***

I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and knew that music was for me. I also liked playing with drums and piano also because they seemed exciting. I've competed in WSMA (Wisconsin School Music Assoc.) for many years which taught me a lot about performing for judges, being relaxed, and the importance of preparation.

I started playing the guitar and bass guitar when I was 13 and have never stopped practicing and performing since. I also have done a lot of writing, recording, producing, and have a Pro Tools Studio for students to use.

***College and Teaching***

I began teaching music lessons in college and enjoyed it very much. I received my B.A. in Music from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. There I was very much involved with guitar, piano, voice, trumpet, and being in bands and writing music. After receiving my B.A. I also took 3 years of Education classes at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I write, produce, and perform my music along with performing with bands around the Midwest.

***Life in Music***

After receiving my B.A. in Music, I continued teaching and opened up my home studio. After a year and a half I had enough students that I was able to quit my factory job and teach music full time. I've been teaching, performing, and writing music ever since.

***Performing and more***

I have been on stage performing music since I was 11. In school band, marching band, competing in music competitions, and in bands touring the Midwest.

I have recorded many CDs with bands and on my own. My most ambitious project was a CD of my original music called, "Girls". I've performed my music and promoted it by being interviewed on Milwaukee radio stations along with internet music sites such as CD Baby. It is very exciting talking on live radio about my music and my passion. It is also even more exciting, and scary, playing my music live on the radio, lol.

***Instruments Taught***

I have been teaching for over 2 decades. Students take lessons for:
* guitar (electric / acoustic)
* piano
* voice
* drums
* trumpet
* saxophone
* harmonica
* music theory / ear training
* studio recording / songwriting

I also give kindermusik lessons to 2-5 year old all the way up to senior citizens 70-93. I play parties, concerts, and Nursing Home performances.

I am experienced as an online (Skype) instructor, and I have taught online lessons worldwide. I've witnessed great results from my online students (both national and international).

I hope I can help you with all of your musical goals and get you going in a positive musical direction.

Piano · In studio
My 6 yr old daughter started taking piano lessens with Paul about 8 months ago and absolutely loves it! He is very knowledgeable and well equipped to accommodate students of all ages as well as a full range of instrumental interests. He takes the time to go beyond just the mechanics of playing the instrument and teaches the true art of hearing and appreciating the music. I highly recommend Abbey Music.

My daughter is new to guitar. Paul is very patient and friendly, and the student chooses the pace of learning. She's only on her third lesson, but we are confident that we'll be sticking with Paul.

Zosia H.

Milwaukee, WI

I started teaching voice three years ago, and though I haven't taken on many students in the past, I am very excited to begin really establishing myself as a vocal teacher. I would be able to offer a classical student an in-depth training; If they chose to continue on to the professional level, I would be able to recommend them to a very capable instructor. As a professional non-classical artist, I'm also prepared to teach musical theater, jazz, folk and rock vocals, as my students prefer.

About Zosia

I was born in Chicago, and have been living in Milwaukee for the past year while finishing a degree in Music History at UW-Milwaukee. I studied piano for fourteen years and have recently resumed study for the purpose of my degree, and I am fluent in both fundamental classical and jazz piano. I studied voice at the high school and college level, have been in a number of professional performing choirs, and was recently an ensemble member in UW-Milwaukee and Milwaukee Opera Theatre's production of L'Enfant et Les Sortileges. I am well-versed in music theory, as its study is part of my degree. I a
lso have a solid musical theater background, both as an actress and an accompanist. Outside of school, I perform in the Milwaukee Irish traditional music circuit, and am an independent folk/blues performer.

PLEASE NOTE: I will be completing the background check within the next two weeks for financial reasons. I would also love to teach special needs students, but, as I have no training in that area, I don't feel qualified to do so.
