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 started out copying the sound of other recording artists
, struggling for years to find their own unique voice.

The KEY difference between professional vocalists and average singers is (9 times out of 10) the presence of an influential teacher/mentor!

The right teacher/mentor pushes you to grow continuously; beyond what you think is possible. The right teacher/mentor has wisdom and information to share from inside the music industry. The right teacher/mentor genuinely cares about you as a person.

I teach so that I can be that life-changing mentor for my students, giving them that missing link for success.

About me:
I grew up in NYC and "cut my teeth" across a variety of genres: rock, jazz, R&B, gospel and choral/classical. You name it; I've sung it. In addition to being a vocal coach, I travel the nation as a musician/performing artist, professional speaker and author. Please take a moment to watch the video clip below.

Unlike most teachers that take on any/all students, I limit my roster to 15 students at any given time. During our first few lessons, I commit to offering you honest and professional feedback about your strengths and weaknesses. I want to help YOU find YOUR own voice. I want to take a look at YOUR goals, YOUR dreams, and figure out what makes you tick.

During lessons, I draw on my dual B.A. degree in vocal performance & music business as well as industry experience. I offer insights on what works and what doesn't as a vocalist, whether you are looking to pursue singing vocationally or just as a hobby.

I can help you:
- Stop feeling nervous
- Develop impeccable technique
- Learn the “ins and outs” of being in the music business
- Assemble a press kit, record a demo and start to get gigs
- Much more!

I would love the opportunity to meet you and hear where you want your singing to take you. Please, get in touch!

Other Notes:

Studio Equipment:
I teach out of my residence-based studio in downtown Minneapolis. It's centrally located with free parking and easy access to skyways and public transportation. Do you work downtown? Consider taking lessons over your lunch break!

I have everything we need for lessons in my studio: instruments, laptop, mics, etc... I will provide you with all audio files and any written materials for our lessons.

Michele took the time to get to know my personal connection to singing and music, so she knew just where to start with me as her student. I appreciated her explanation of vocal anatomy because that type of knowledge helps me figure out how connect with and work with my body, and I also never knew how nice it feels to have someone listen to and hear all the unique qualities of my voice while speaking. I felt like she could "see" my voice, which made me feel a bit exposed, but also trust her to help me overcome vocal challenges and weaknesses in future lessons.

I haven’t even started and I love her. Just from our first introductory phone call I know Michele will be my vocal coach for life. I’ve met enough people throughout my life to recognize immediately when I encounter someone who not only has passion, sophistication, professionalism, and mad skills, but more rarely the ear and mindset of a keen and effective mentor. I can’t wait to begin the journey I’ve always dreamed of...

About Olivia
I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

About Jonah
Learning to play the guitar is one of the most rewarding experiences you'll ever have. Whether this is your first time picking up the guitar or you've been playing for years, I'll make sure your lessons are structured and paced in a way that's specifically catered to your goals.

I've worked with dozens of students of all ages over the last seven years and seen each of them achieve major breakthroughs and discover/rekindle a passion for music.

If you're interested in getting started, I'd love to hear from you! I teach out of my studio in Culver City but am available for in-home lessons as well.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Jonah for a few months now and it s great!! I'm learning sooo much. Whether you've never played guitar or EVER played guitar he is a super knowledgeable teacher. It is so enriching and worth it. Let's face it, the year has been stressful. My weekly lesson gets me grounded just by playing my own beautiful music. Anyway, thanks to those who've posted and recommended Jonah. I'm A BELIEVER or should I say "JONALIEVER?"

I started playing guitar at age 10 but had let it go over the past couple decades. Eager to re-learn the instrument, I recently started taking lessons with Jonah Rosenthal and he's fantastic. Exactly the kind of teacher I was looking for - thorough, creative, encouraging, and most important - patient. I can't recommend him highly enough, for someone just starting out on the guitar or a lapsed player like me.

I've been playing guitar (on and off) for over 50 years. I read Jonah's post about 3 months ago and decided to call Jonah for lessons. I had been feeling very rusty and wanted to polish my skills and learn some new songs. I've already learned a lot from Jonah and my guitar playing sounds much better in every way. Jonah has been great to work with, he is easy-going, fun and most importantly, he's a great teacher.

About De'Anza
As an active artist and graduate of Los Angeles College of Music, I believe that teaching is much more than a student learning to play their instrument. It's about creating a fun environment where students not only get a solid musical foundation but are also encouraged to express themselves creatively. I only take on a limited amount of students so that my attention is fully focused on each lesson.

About Heidi
I graduated with my Bachelor's of Music Degree in Piano Performance from Indiana University in 2011. I have been passionate about sharing the magic of music with children since I was a teenager, and have been teaching for 10 years.

Most piano programs focus on FACTS and getting kids to cram as much information as possible into their heads. This doesn't leave a lot of room for creativity, natural curiosity, or just plain enjoyment.
Students in the Wiskur Music Studio are surprised by how much they enjoy their lessons, and how confident and excited they feel heading home after a lesson, instead of confused and discouraged. Several of the parents sitting in on lessons have commented how this method is so different from the lessons they remember enduring growing up!

In a nutshell, we consider basic musical skills a priority, and encourage
diligence in mastering the foundation of skill required for every genre. After that, we follow the students' lead. We teach them what they want to learn. What fascinates and inspires them - Bach, Mozart, the Beatles, Taylor Swift, whatever it may be.

Students in the studio generally complete their books at a quicker pace than the average timeline given by the curriculum creators, and get on to "the really fun stuff" quickly!

Sign up today to experience it for yourself!

MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w
hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

About Sammy
Hi! I am a guitarist, vocalist, and beatboxer looking to help others get started with guitar (but I can throw in beatboxing tips too!!).

When I was 13, after tearing my way through the Guitar Hero franchise, my brother suggested I give the real instrument a shot. I used my saved up cash to buy a guitar, learn every Red Hot Chili Peppers song I possibly could, form a band, and jam endlessly.

As a player, I've faced what every new student of the instrument has: turbulent confidence, inconsistency with motivation, tendencies to stick with what's comfortable and avoid what is scary or could potentially lead to failure, etc. Eventually, I began to realize that music, guitar, and artistic expression were absolutely essential in my life to be happy, and I couldn't put down my guitar from that day forward. That fundamental hunger to express
is something I really hope to bring out in others as I help them get started with their personal guitar journey, whether they have musical experience or not.

As a teacher, I taught beginner acoustic guitar extensively as a summer camp counselor at Camp Eagle Ridge leadership camp (co-ed, ages 7-17). I'm especially experienced in working with kids, but I also have experience working with adults. Do note that I'm willing to teach to students that want to learn electric guitar, as well as those who want to learn acoustic.

Whether you enjoy listening to rock, funk, blues, hip-hop, indy, country, metal, or anything else, I guarantee I share a few favorite artists and a passion on some level. I hope to create a lesson plan that is personalized to what you like!

Please note that at this time I'm only looking to teach beginners or people bridging the gap between beginner and intermediate. Reach out if you have any questions. Looking forward to getting started!

I have picked up and put down the guitar more times than I can count in my life. No one has gotten me further in my skill set than Sammy. To start, he’s very concrete in his teaching style. He helps me set specific, realistic goals and tailors his lessons around meeting them- both in the short and long term. Above being an incredibly skilled guitarist, he is a very clear communicator. He is able to clearly talk me through where I am and the rationale in how we’re going to get me to where I want to be. Above all, and I can’t empahsize this enough, Sammy “gets” the human element. He helps me work through inevitable frustrations and difficulties, while being very vocal in his praise when I hit a milestone. Sammy REALLY cares about my success, which has made me even more invested in learning. I could not recommend Sammy more, as both a guitarist and as a great guy. Thank you Sammy!

Sammy was prompt and very personable. I was very happy with how he customized the lesson to help meet my end goal in learning to play a specific song. He gave me enough to work on my own during the week. I look forward to the next lesson in fine tuning what I’ve learned and in learning a little bit more. Thanks, Sammy!
