About John
Fun, professional, and relaxed. Experienced instructor since 1988. First paid public performance was in 1983, so I've been at this a while, and love it.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students learn from popular music beginning with basic chords and strumming and simple melodies. After 3 months with correct practice the student should be able to strum a number of songs and change chords smoothly. After 3 months bar chords and more complex melodies are introduced, and beyond 6 months, one can expect to progress into music theory and improvisation.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Southern Rock, Country, Metal, Alternative, Pop, Improvisation

John is very patient and knowledgeable. You can tell that he's been teaching for a very long time. I'm self-taught and have been playing for over 20 years and within minutes of viewing me play, John was able to pick out immediately my flaws. He gives me homework every week, and gives me a hard time if I do not do it. Exactly what I look for in a teacher.

About David
Baritone David C. completed both his B.M. and M.M. degrees in Voice Performance at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC. David went on to complete a Graduate Performance Diploma in Voice at The Boston Conservatory in 2014. With over 8 years of teaching experience, David has worked with singers of all ages and ability levels. David's teaching is rooted in classical voice pedagogy but tailors his teaching to benefit singers interested in many styles. For four summers, David was a visiting faculty member at Cannon Music Camp in Boone, NC. As a performer, David has had professional experience in jazz, pop, musical theatre, opera and oratorio. His performing highlights include being selected to perform leading roles with the American Singers' Opera Project for three years, performances as Giorgio Germont in Verdi's La Traviata at The
Flagstaff in Fidenza Summer Opera Festival in Fidenza, Italy, main stage operatic roles at The Boston Conservatory, professional oratorio performances in North Carolina and New England in the works of Bach, Handel, Mendelssohn, Faure, Britten, Dvorak, Brahms and Rutter, and many recital and concert appearances. David's combination of experiences as both a singer and teacher of many styles make his teaching versatile, providing each student with a unique and effective lesson experience.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students can expect to spend half of our lesson time working on technique through exercises specifically designed to develop the most efficient use of their voice. The rest of the lesson be devoted to applying those techniques while singing repertoire agreed upon by both student and teacher.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Open living room set up. Keyboard. Seating for parents. Visitor's parking lot.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a keyboard if I'm teaching from home. If travelling, I can bring a portable keyboard..

*** Specialties ***
My singing and voice teaching are rooted in classical pedagogy, but I have been very fortunate to have the opportunity to perform and teach in numerous styles. It is my belief that a healthy classical foundation can be modified and put into practice to make singing in any style easy and efficient.

Referred to Jon by a friend. I knew within 2 minutes of meeting him we were going to be happy with our choice. I love to listen in while he is instructing my granddaughter. He is so patient and kind but yet firm enough to manage a beginning student and keep them motivated. My 12 year old granddaughter practices every day without prompting because he advised her that was an expectation. I would highly recommend him!

Christina is super patient with my teenage girls! Her gift has so graciously been translated into a new creative outlet for my girls! She has cultivated the art of teaching in such a way that my kids treat their lesson like a session. There's a sense if appreciation woven into the way Christina teaches that helps her students love what they are learning! Makes nagging the girls to do daily practice a non-issue! They love trying out what they've learned! Love, love Christina! She is truly a gem! -Shana W. (Cassie and Scotlyn's mom)

About Micah
I've first started playing guitar in 2010 thanks to the excuse of in-school lessons, but have since moved on to learning everything by ear. That allowed me to later pick up percussion, classical strings, piano, wind, vocals etc, (although I refuse to teach anything I'm not confident in). This knack for music lead me to considering teaching since it will pay far more than my current job.

To give an idea about how I do as an instructor, I'm adaptable, I can handle special needs (I have aspergers), I take a minute to understand what we are struggling with and I believe in patience as much as I do efficiency

I will not coddle and I will not demean. As a teacher, I believe that it's not my job to be your parent, but the one helping you progress as a musician. I want you to walk out of each session knowing that you've improved. Hopefully
, one day you will be able to keep learning without me!
