About Arlys
Are you a singer or speaker who would like a more powerful, authentic voice? My focus is to assist you in finding an easier way to sustain your best posture, breath support, resonance and pitch control by bringing awareness to existing vocal habits while providing a hands-on experience adjusting those habits. My mission is to help you find your most relaxed & elongated posture, breath support, full resonance and best pitch control.

My specialty as a professional voice teacher is Contemporary Commercial Music [CCM] which encompasses genres & sub-genres from Pop, Country, Hip/Hop, Folk, Rock, R&B, Soul, Gospel, EDM [electronic dance music], etc.

I grew up singing freely and naturally until I destroyed my voice thru improper, frequent overuse. I believed my career was over, but it was just starting. Private lessons with vocal professio
nals coupled with academic studies rebuilt my perception of how I was generating sound and their training gave me back MY VOICE, for which I am forever grateful. I combine knowledge from these studies and my own vocal exploration to re-build my voice in exercises that I share with students of voice.

I CAN HELP YOU REACH YOUR GOALS: My cross-training in dance, yoga, Tai Chi, commercial & improvisational acting provides a well-rounded platform from which to deliver information, guide vocal explorers and also help develop talent.

EXPERIENCE:
* 20 years teaching experience
* 12 years living & working in Los Angeles
* A lifetime of performing experience
* 12 years personal private vocal studies master teachers of bel canto & contemporary singing techniques.

LIFE SKILLS: No matter the subject, my focus is also teach skills that can be extrapolated into any area of your life. Life Skills focuses on eradicating negative self-talk and expanding communication skills that help develop confidence, enhancing daily life.

Between performing and my own artistic studies, I have been taking the occasional private voice student since 1997, mostly via referrals from friends and other students. While living in California, one of my voice teachers requested me as her regular substitute at Culver City and Santa Monica Music Schools from 2008-2012, which I felt deeply honored. She said she trusted me with their voices, which encouraged me into full-time voice teaching practice. In June 2012, I returned to Minneapolis and began teaching in my home studio through music services like Take Lessons. Past projects include producing a vocal showcase at The Ritz Theater, musical direction & choreography for a school's 2016 production of the Wizard of Oz; assisting students to prepare for local & national auditions like La Banda, The Voice & American Idol; prepping singers for studio recordings and congratulating a new student who's stepped out of the chorus to land her first lead role!

I am forever grateful to all of my teachers, past and present, for their valuable gifts of knowledge, skill, grace and compassion.

ENJOY LIFE MORE! Singing & dancing improves our quality of life.

I have experienced improvement in my confidence after 5 lessons with Arlys as compared to a decrease in confidence after working with another instructor for near one year (not a TL instructor). I now realize the ability to sing and play piano does not automatically equate to the ability to teach and most especially, the ability to teach someone who was not born a natural singer (such as myself). Arlys is that instructor that embraces where you are and understands the anatomy of the vocal instrument and the science behind making beautiful music (no matter your skills or lack-of). Arlys brings to the table a multitude of experiences that support her teaching style and learning for students with diverse singing backgrounds or no singing background. In a recent session with Arlys, I was introduced to "rock star monitor" which after incorporating it into our lesson, was a boost to my confidence and performance. Arlys is one of my favorite 5 instructors and the only one I am working with one-on-one at this time. I look forward to each lesson and hope she will continue with this teaching platform for a long time to come.

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 and playing piano for the last 9 years. 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 be enjoyable. Every music student is different and has a different purpose for wantin
g to learn music, and I enjoy working with students to help them achieve their goals.

Being a well-rounded musician has not only helped me in my music career, but it has helped me experience and enjoy many different kinds of music. I expect students to play different types of music with a main focus on one genre. If you want to learn to play classical music only, I teach sightreading, technical skills, and with a little time and practice you or your child can be playing some of the simpler masterworks by the end of the first year. But I also encourage classical pianist to try out a rock song or improvisation.

The same goes for those who are only interested in learning how to play rock music or church music. Being able to sightread is invaluable to a musician, and after a few lessons on chords and ear-training, I like to introduce basic sight-reading.

Developing a love for the instrument you play is just as important as developing the technical skills to play it. I do my best as a teacher to learn what it is that students enjoy most about playing and incorporate that into lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio--New Kawai upright

Lino Lakes--Baldwin upright, good condition, and electric piano

*** Specialties ***
I can play and teach in a variety of genres, from classical to pop to church music. I teach students to sight-read, and I can also teach students to play off a chord chart or by ear if these are things that student expresses an interest in.

I've found that the method books available to piano students are thorough and effective, especially for beginning students of elementary age. I've used different books, including Faber & Faber, Alfred, and Hal Leonard. All of these have strengths and weaknesses, and I like to pick the method depending on the personality of the student.

About Camelia
I am a certified history teacher, a writer and a bookseller.
I earned my B.A. in history while in my native country, Romania. My teachers showed me that without knowing my past I cannot understand the present and prepare for the future. Maybe that’s why I ended up as a journalist for more than ten years.
I spent the last ten years in Minnesota, learning the language and meeting wonderful people. I wrote and published a book, while selling other books for readers.
History proved to be my real passion and I am here to guide you through its intricate ways.
In my spare time I write books and make bookmarks. I also work as a bookseller in a bookstore.

About Angelika
I am an experienced university teacher, Assistant Professor, researcher and PhD in Business Studies, from Sweden but currently living and teaching in the USA. I am a great fit for any student wanting to learn more about:
*Marketing
*International Marketing
*Marketing Communications
*Organizational Theory
*Management
*Human Resource Management
*Swedish language (beginner-advanced, any age group)
*Swedish culture

For my business students: I use visual aids and plenty of real-life examples in the form of case studies, videos and pictures, to increase and deepen your understanding of the theoretical concepts that you are learning. I have years of experience explaining complex theoretical concepts in business studies, so that anyone can understand. By focusing on deep learning related to real-life scenarios, you will retain the k
nowledge better, and thus perform better in your studies. It is not mainly about memorizing, it is about really understanding what business is about that will make you successful in your studies and your work life ahead.

For my Swedish language students: I teach based on real-life scenarios and settings, such as going to the grocery store, meeting a new friend, or introducing yourself to a business partner. The feeling resembles learning lines for a theater play and it is a highly effective method which I learned from studying Japanese at Middlebury College Language Schools. The reason this method is so effective is that the vocabulary is used in a context, the way words normally are used, and these memorized conversations can thereafter be used in a multitude of situations, simply by changing only a few words. You will be able to understand and participate in real conversations from start!

I teach Swedish "around your interests". This means that I will take the time to get to know what interests you, what you would like to be able to say and do in Swedish/Sweden, and then I adapt the lessons to that. For those that are interested in literature, I love to introduce some Swedish literature. For students of Business Swedish, I do not think that you can find a more knowledgeable teacher in business Swedish! For the beginner student wanting to learn some basic language to make friends and travel in Sweden and Swedish speaking parts of Finland, we will focus on everyday conversations on current topics in Sweden and Finland. For kids of all ages, we might take a stance in Swedish Donald Duck cartoons (which are highly popular in Sweden- you can find them in every grocery store!) or talk about Minecraft, school related topics etc. .

As a person, I am down to earth and easy to talk to. There are no "stupid questions" in my book. As your teacher, I am on your team, and I will do my very best for you to succeed in your studies!

About Courtney
I am a professional practicing artist and a teaching artist. I am trained as an architect. I like new students to tell me about themselves and their interests. I love to see examples of their previous work, if applicable, so I can design a course of action to work with them. I am very open and encouraging. 'No drawing is a bad drawing.'

I have been teaching for over 20 years at the University and college level. I have recently starting teaching with groups of seniors in my community. I have also taught private lessons in my studio for ages 8 and above. Most of my students are very interested and accomplished in art but I am also open to students new to art.

I have a Master of Architecture degree from Yale University where I also studied painting. My professional work blurs the boundaries of Art and Architecture. I teach in multiple are
as: drawing, painting (watercolor and oil), collage and mixed media, color theory, design, architecture, and digital media.
