Light opera, folk, Italian, French, German and traditional repertoire.

About Melody
Are you looking to sing or play keyboard, work on material for your band, build your repertoire, sing or play in the church choir/band, audition for a production, become a better lead singer in your rock or pop band, overcome stage-fright or wanting to get to the next level? You have come to the right place!

My lessons provide students with an opportunity to deeply explore the voice, build confidence, and to develop healthy and effective singing practices, which can be applied to any style of musical singing and playing.

A well-rounded music education is very important and I have fun and educational resources for learning vocal technique, ear training, harmony, pitch matching and music theory.

I am very fortunate to have performed and studied Classical and Opera, musical theater productions, have sang in Rock, Pop, Country, R&B
bands and can bring that real-world experience into the lesson. The student will receive real hands-on knowledge about singing in a variety of environments and how to manage his/her vocal goals!

In addition to being vocally healthy, I encourage self-expression and enhance self-esteem in my students: singers of all ages, skill levels and styles. Plus, it has to be fun, otherwise why do it? Singing is a process and less about the end goal and we train the body, mind and use imagination and it's a very exciting process!

***My students regularly receive scholarships and placement in music schools and programs around the U.S., have won competitions, do well in auditions, are performing in successful bands and/or recording artists.

I am energetic and enthusiastic; actively promote values and traditional teaching practices coupled with the introduction of technology into the lesson. My experience as an educator is to share passion and talent for music with the next generation of musicians and outstanding communication skills. I really care about my students and provide the tools to help them reach their goals!

Degrees:
Bachelor of Music, minor in Psychology from Michigan State University
Master of Vocal Pedagogy from Oakland University

Here is some of my experience as a performer: I have sung Internationally at the renowned €œEisteffodd Music Festival€ in Wales, toured through Britain and performed at the Laupin Agile Cabaret in Paris. I was honored with a nomination to attend the prestigious Yale Cabaret Conference and worked with cabaret legend Julie Wilson and Manhattan Transfer founder Laurel Masse. Sung and performed roles with the Mid-Michigan and Detroit Opera Companies. Performed a production of Sleepwalkers€ with the Kari Margolis Brown Company at the O'Shaughnessy Theatre. I currently perform all over the Twin Cities with my own R&B/Soul Band, Melody and The Dramatics!€ Plus, I am a contract vocalist and perform in a variety of other projects, so needless to say, it is all a very awesome ride!

*** Lesson Details ***
My laid-back and fun approach allows for versatility and is tailored to meet the needs of the individual student. When studying the art of singing you are gaining skills, which build confidence.

When you understand what you'€™re doing and why, you bring more confidence to your performance. Progress is made with regular practice outside of lessons. Voice students record each private lesson through their devices and take notes in their own notebooks.

I have "warm-up" tracks which you can use in your car or at home and you will notice significant improvement once you start your routine.

Practicing is very important and I have great methods to teach students how to maximize their time and get the best results! I am privileged to have an opportunity to teach and very passionate about coaching a student to meet his or her musical goals!

Also, I have a Beagle named "Bacon" and he will always be very excited to see you, however he does calm down when you're in the studio. In addition, I have two cats, so please let me know if you have allergies or any special recommendations.

Thanks so much!
Melody

*** Specialties ***

I have been trained by some of the best instructors in the country and strive for my students to be vocally healthy, so they'll have long careers. I also perform in professional bands, orchestras and can bring that experience into the lesson.

This was my first private lesson with Dr. Daniel, most importantly he made me feel very comfortable and I wasn't afraid to sing notes in front of him. Dr.Daniel took the time to gather my history and take notes about what I said. Dr. Daniel was very thorough for our first visit, even though I had only booked my first class to be 30 minutes. I look forward to taking more lessons with him and am excited for our next lesson! Thank you so much!

Dear Future Student. I had the pleasure of taking lessons from Katrina for some time in 2017. Katrina is a extremely talented teacher thoroughly knowledgeable in music pedagogy and in piano teaching and in classical music theory. Lessons were pleasant and also rigorous. Since I was a beginner at the time I greatly appreciated the special lessons in posture, hand position, music theory of time, key and pitch and tempo. I highly recommend Katrina to anyone from beginner to advanced.

I would like nothing better than to help you discover and develop your voice's greatest potential.

It is a personal journey for singers to learn how to integrate all those elements into their own instruments and I will act as your trusted and supportive guide throughout the process. I have a master's degree in classical vocal performance from the renowned Manhattan School of Music and performed with opera companies in New York City. Currently, in New Orleans, I sing with the joyous Shades of Praise interracial gospel choir.

About Sheila
I would like nothing better than to help you discover your true voice. The journey of developing one's true voice integrates many elements including proper tone production, rhythmic accuracy, diction, memorization, and the ability to connect with and convey the emotional context of songs. It would be my privilege to guide you on that journey as a patient, supportive and encouraging teacher.

I have a Master's degree in classical vocal performance from the renowned Manhattan School of Music and I performed with opera companies in New York city. Throughout my singing journey I had the privilege to work with some of the finest voice teachers, conductors and coaches America has to offer. I love to share that tradition, knowledge and wisdom with my students.

I now live in the musically vibrant city of of New Orleans and sing with the joyo
us Shades of Praise Interracial Gospel choir.

On the journey of developing your true voice, I understand how to coach appropriately for a variety of singing styles beyond classical including broadway, jazz, pop, blues, country and gospel. I will help you integrate the fundamentals of proper tone production, accurate rhythm, diction and interpretation across genres. If you are interested in the classical genre, I am well equipped to coach Italian, German and French diction and would love to help prepare high school students who may be preparing to audition for college music programs.

Due to medical circumstances, I had the agonizing and humbling challenge of losing some of my vocal ability and I went through the process of rebuilding my voice. I am committed to making sure my students at all levels sing healthfully and sustainably. If you are someone who has experienced vocal damage, I am happy to work with you to healthfully rebuild your instrument.

In addition to my singing, I have a career in eLearning and understand how to make learners feel comfortable and authentic in an online learning environment.

If you are in the New Orleans metro area, I have a comfortable home studio with piano and great acoustics or I can travel to your home within a 15 mile radius.

I have been singing and coaching vocals professionally for over 10 years. I teach all genres of music and specialize in audition preparation and vocal dynamics. I have also studied along in my career with one of the best vocal teachers in the world Gary Catona who has taught many famous singers including Katy Perry, Andrea Bocelli, Lorde, and BabyFace. I always aim to make my students reach their potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time!

About Andrew
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter, recording artist, and producer. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Bachelors of Music in Contemporary Writing and Production.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages in beginner and intermediate experience levels. I studied classical piano for 12 years, and contemporary keyboard for 7 of those. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of
the student.

My personal passion is contemporary music but I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!

I am a GRAMMY-winning choral singer and composer in the BMI Musical Theater Writing Workshop with a Masters Degree and Artist Diploma in Opera Performance from University of Cincinnati- CCM. I have also worked as a studio pianist for Marilyn Horne, Ron Raines, Deric Rosenblatt, Bill Neill, and several other NYC voice teachers.

As a teacher, I bring all of my diverse experiences together to teach classical singing technique as a means for effectively communicating and storytelling. Much of my technique involves identifying and releasing tension through proper breath management. We all tend to get in our own ways by trying to achieve a specific result, so I work with singers to find what their voices naturally sound like.

In addition, I offer coaching on musical style, acting, diction, and many other aspects of performing.

About Jason
In demand as a vocalist, pianist, vocal coach, and composer, Jason Weisinger has been praised as “satisfying, occasionally sublime” by the Boston Globe. Already enjoying success in a wide variety of repertoire as a vocalist, highlights include a double bill of "Curlew River" (ensemble) and "Dido and Aeneas" (Sailor) with the Mark Morris Dance Group at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, a workshop of Ricky Ian Gordon's opera "Intimate Apparel" (Mr. Marks) with The Metropolitan Opera, and The Boston POPS revue "Simply Sondheim" with Kate Baldwin & Jason Danieley.

As a choral artist, Jason has sung with GRAMMY-winning choir The Crossing, the GRAMMY-nominated Choir of Trinity Wall Street, the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, the American Symphony Orchestra, the American Classical Orchestra, the Bard SummerScape Festival, Park Avenue Synagogue,
and Park East Synagogue.

A self-taught composer, Jason is a part of the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop. Additionally, his song, ‘i carry your heart,’ recently won second place in the Sparks & Wiry Cries songSLAM. He also designs sound and composes for stop-motion short films.

Jason holds a BM in voice performance from SUNY Fredonia and an MM and AD in opera performance from University of Cincinnati - College Conservatory of Music. He has studied and performed at the Tanglewood Music Center, Fall Island Vocal Arts Seminar, Brevard Music Center, SongFest, and New Music on the Point.

Beyond music, Jason enjoys sketching, writing poetry, watching and dissecting movies, and connecting the dots of the past. His most fervent supporter is his beloved dog, Carter “Miles” Weisinger.

Jason helped me so much with breath control and getting out of my head when singing. He is incredibly kind and supportive, but still pushed me to be better. He sings so beautifully and even plays the piano wonderfully, so I could really trust his opinion. He's clearly done a lot of work to get to where he is and it comes through in his technique. I highly recommend him to anybody looking to be a more confident and convincing singer!

I’ve always was a musician but only discovered my voice 10 years ago. I have gone through so many struggles to find my voice and I can help you find yours quicker than I did. I have gone through the wrong path and have had amazing teachers get me out of traps and dead ends and in return I’ve been able to help my students do the same. I’ve been teaching for 6 years now and it has been another passion of mine to see my students grow and achieve their dreams.

About Norman

I been teaching since 2012 and all my students have gone off to do amazing things. I hope you choose me to be your voice/piano teacher and I look forward to meeting you!

A NYC resident for the last 8 years, I have a strong background in both performing and educating and it is my strong belief that teachers who are "in the biz" are extremely valuable. Specializing in Musical Theatre and serving as an actor, music director, producer, and director over the years, I have a unique perspective of the industry and all it takes to make you ready for your next audition, concert, performance, etc. I hold a Bachelors of Music from NYU Steinhardt, where I had a strong classical training in Vocal Performance - all the while, making sure that beautiful, healthy singing is married to the text and emotional state of the character. While voice lessons with me are largely dedicated to developing a strong vocal technique, I will always come back to what songs mean on a deeper, more emotional level, as I believe that in so much of the material in the MT lexicon is written in such a way that the music and words and context of a song all feed and inform each other. ...

About Zack
Hi All! I am a New York based professional actor, music director, producer, and the co-artistic director of a professional theatre company housed here in the city. I hold credits from the New York Stage and regionally and graduated with honors from NYU with a degree in Vocal Performance with an Emphasis in Music Theatre. Over the years, I have taught students of all ages and I specialize in utilizing classical vocal technique and healthy singing habits to inform what is at the heart of a song; that is, how in each song, there is a unique marriage between the words and the notes. Additionally, having been cast in leading roles in musicals with pop, rock, and hip/hop influenced scores myself, I believe that a strong background in classic vocal exercise truly helps to keep your voice healthy and strong regardless of the style of the music -
the industry is full of artists who manage to negotiate these differing styles with simple tricks and remembering the basics in regards to air flow, resonance, and diction. In addition to vocal instruction, I also offer beginner/intermediate saxophone lessons, beginner piano, and beginner/intermediate/advanced music theory and music-reading. Thank you for reading and I hope to talk to you soon!
