Victoria V.

Minneapolis, MN

About Victoria

I am an enthusiastic teacher who loves to help students explore and enjoy the process of singing. Singing and music can boost your confidence and can be an activity that is both challenging and enjoyable. Singing is also personal and I believe it is important to see lessons as a collaboration between teacher and student. I feel i have an affinity for teaching students of all ages who are completely new to singing and want to learn the basics. I am also an active performer with a focus in opera and musical theater. I currently singing with Minnesota Opera and have performed such roles as Suzuki in Madame Butterfly, Alisa in Lucia, Marcellina in Le Nozze di Figaro and the title role in Carmen. I believe that a great teacher has experience they can share with students. I understand the ...

TONE OF MY VOICE IMPROVED

Victoria is an excellent voice teacher. She taught me how to "think low" when I sing in the higher range. She helped me to concentrate on wordenunciation. She taught me how to breathe differently, when I sing. I highly recommend her.

Michele M.

Minneapolis, MN

About Michele Denise

As a professional teaching artist and vocal coach, I have been helping students of all ages and abilities find their voice for over 20 years. My goal is simple: to give you singing lessons that will change your life forever. You can build unshakable confidence and have fun while learning techniques professional singers take onto the stage and into the studio. And, you can have a great time doing it! About my vocal lessons/coaching: Most students come into lessons with the same question: "Am I any good? Is there hope for me?" Well, here's the thing... The vast majority of professional vocalists never went to school for singing! Most professional vocalists had family and friends that told them they were talented and that they should pursue singing. Most professional vocalists ...

Mary S.

Saint Paul, MN

About Mary

I began taking piano lessons on a whim in middle school, but it didn't take long before I realized I was completely in love with music. I enjoy playing and teaching many types of music, from classical to rock to hymns and church music. I learned to play by ear at the same time I learned to sight read, and both approaches have helped me to learn and enjoy the music I play. I graduated in December 2010 with a BA in Music Performance from North Central University, here in the Twin Cities. I have been teaching piano lessons for the last 6 years, as well as directing a children's choir. Watching other people learn to play music is one of the greatest rewards I've received. *** Lesson Details *** I believe music has incredible educational value, but I also believe that it should ...

Mary is a stellar piano teacher. She is so creative in her techniques in helping kids to learn and enjoy playing music. She makes playing piano fun for my son-he even asks if he can practice! I work in the early childhood education field and am so impressed with Mary's skills working with my 6 year. She is a natural!

A gifted teacher for teaching Piano Lessons

Mary has inspired my daughter Joanne to want to play piano. She has a way of balancing what the kids like to play and what the parents want in a music lesson for their kids. Joanne has not lost interest like we thought she might, but has wanted to Accelerate learning piano. She gets them playing music right away and then little by little explains more and more about music itself. It is an all-around winning strategy, especially when teaching kids.
Thank Mary

John S.

Saint Paul, MN

About John

I have spent over 10 years gigging, recording, and teaching drums in the Twin Cities. I am a full-time musician, splitting time between original indie-pop band Step Rockets and Minneapolis-based variety band Soul Tree. I teach from my music studio in St. Paul as well as traveling to students' homes. I started drumming at the age of 10, honing my chops under the tutelage of drummer/vibraphonist Steve Roehm, member of the acclaimed Twin Cities jazz trio, The New Standards. I continued my musical education at St. Olaf College, where I played drums in the college's nationally accredited Jazz One ensemble while studying percussion with highly regarded Twin Cities musicians Phil Hey and Dave Hagedorn. Since graduating, I've found a niche in the world of teaching. I spent three years ...

John has helped me take my drumming to the next level. When I started lessons I was fairly new to the drum set and did not know how to read music. Over the past two years he has completely transformed me from a beginner to a gigging musician. John is patient, laid back and very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him to drummers of all skill levels.

I played drums in a school band and haven't played in a few years. I approached John about getting back into the art even though I was a little rusty. Previously I have taken lessons with people who were skilled gigging drummers but not the best educators. John is a great combination of professional musician and a skilled educator, as shown through his patience and ability to explain techniques and skills. I highly recommend John as a teacher for any level, because he has been so wonderful in getting me back on my musical feet!

Yasmin B.

Minneapolis, MN

About Yasmin

I studied classical piano and theory with Sr. Cecile Amore, jazz theory and mellophone with be-bop saxophonist John Mastroianni, jazz piano with Noreen Grey Sauls, and jazz history with the late Bill Finegan- big-band leader and acclaimed arranger for Tommy Dorsey and Glenn Miller. I enjoy playing classical music (primarily Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin) tango, and pop songs as well. I have played keyboards and bass guitar professionally and enjoyed some commercial recognition in California when invited to open for a well known Bay Area band ("Foxboro Hot Tubs" a.k.a. "Green Day") at The Roxy and a handful of other west coast venues. My music students are introduced to basic music theory, notation, and technique to enable them to play fun, simple melodies after the first lesson, and
