Gregory Valens Luv is a phenomenal vocal coach. He's very detailed in teaching you structure of the body to relax you and open you up for singing. I love his technique. I find myself very relaxed and limber which brings out the best in me. He's very creative and shares various types of vocalizations to help you with every style of music. He's also got a sweet spirit and that makes it very enjoyable to come to class.

New York, NY
View Full Profile

Over the past 5 years I have created a home studio to work from. Here I arrange, compose, and record music. Since the advent of streaming music, and mp3's, the music industry has changed dramatically. During this time it has been important to be able to facilitate my own recordings from home. This has included the recording of instrumental tracks, vocal tracks, beat making, and overdubbing.

About Cole
On any given day you may find Cole K. improvising in a small club in Brooklyn, circuit-bending a Speak And Spell, or arranging horn parts for pop stars. He is a trumpet player, electronic musician, and composer living in Brooklyn, NY. K. is currently involved with a variety of projects including chamber indie band Cuddle Magic, People’s Champs (west African influenced dance music), and his own solo project for trumpet and laptop. He, along with The Superpowers Horns, arranged and recorded the horn parts for Beyonce Knowles’ two most recent albums (4 and Beyonce.) He attended New England Conservatory of Music where he received a Bachelors degree in Jazz Studies.

Cole tailors each lesson to the students needs. From learning the fundamentals of your instrument to expressing your individual creativity, the process is focused and fun. C
ole has taught 4 year olds to write songs and 40 year old how to play jazz trumpet.

This Cole is King! I would give Cole 10 stars if it were possible. I had lessons with Cole in the summer of 2014 on the trumpet and let me tell you the guy is a giant on trumpet. I learned so much. I learned more in a summer's lessons with Cole than most people get in years. He made learning trumpet a lot of fun but at the same time I leaned basic skills, like how to keep beat and count. Can't say enough.

Las Vegas, NV

View Full Profile

I have been a vocal studio producer for over 30 years. My primary area of expertise lies in my ability to help the artist lay his voice on the recording with professionalism and skill.

About Cyndi
Cyndi has been very successful as a singer/songwriter, artist developer, producer and teacher. Originally hailing from Dayton, Ohio, she has resided in Los Angeles for many years. She has performed all over the United States and the world as an artist singing on cruise lines such as The Royal Carribean, Carnival, NCL etc., and has shared the stage with The Jackson's, Barbara Striesand, Stevie Wonder, CeCe Winans and many others.

As a teacher, Cyndi has taught "Vocal Technique" to students of all ages ranging from 5-70 for the past 25 years. She was Youth and Young Adult Music Director for Crenshaw Christian Center, one of the largest mega churches in America, as well as A&R for their record label. As a songwriter/producer/artist developer on staff for 12 years, she produced numerous CD projects. Her song, "The Power of Faith," that s
he wrote for the Ever Increasing Faith broadcast can be heard all over the world daily on both television and radio. Because of her meticulous instruction, many of her students have gone on to obtain professional careers in the entertainment and music industry. Keisha Renee is currently a The Voice 2017 Team Blake competitor and has been back up singer and opener for the amazing R & B singer, JoJo. Keisha has also sang backups on the P Diddy 2016 Bad Boy reunion tour, she's also a member of Team Minaj as Nicki Minaj's main back up singer as well as numberous others. Julia Michaels, is currently one of America's leading songwriter/vocalist having sold 50 million copies of her songs worldwide and her newest single "Issues" has topped the Billboard chart. Julia was also the first American to ever sing for the closing ceremonies of the 2016 Olympics. Amber Riley, another of her students, was a main cast member playing "Mercedes" on the 10 year Award winning TV show, "Glee" and is currently playing the lead role of "Effie" on the Broadway musical, "Dream Girls".

As a teacher, I get immense satisfaction from seeing my students excel and fly using the techniques and tools that I have taught them," Cyndi says beaming with pride. "My students have done tremendous things in the industry and it is my pleasure to continue to pass down the nuggets of wisdom and skill that I've obtained from over 30 years in the entertainment business."

Cyndi's training began at age 8 where she studied classical piano for 6 years. By age 15, she and her brother released their first independent single which did reasonably well locally. By age 19, while studying music at Ohio University, she along with her brother won "Right On" magazine's nationwide talent search and were offered two major recording contracts. She decided to sign with Philadelphia International Records under the auspices of Grammy Award winning producer, Thom Bell (who was recently inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame). She studied under Thom Bell and it was there that she learned the art of record production. She also studied vocal production under legendary Grammy Award winning producer, Hal Davis (Jackson five fame). Cyndi was taught proper vocal technique by vocal trainer to the stars, Seth Riggs and continued her private studies learning the vocal techniques of the great Alan Linquist. Her teaching style has subsequently morphed into a combination of all these great inspirational instructors.

As a teacher, Cyndi is kind, patient and extremely enthusiastic when it comes to instructing her students. Her students always see her as their friend and one who they know will bring out the best in them and desires that they grow to their fullest potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you come to Cyndi for voice lessons, you can rest assured that your vocals will never be the same. She is as comfortable teaching the beginner as she is instructing the seasoned professional who wants to hone their skills even further. She can always bring something out of you that you didn't know was there. Maybe it's the confidence that she exudes when she instructs, maybe it's her innate ability to know what's needed at any given time to make the student better. But whatever it is, you can rest assured that your lesson will be fun, thorough, and the lesson plan that she devises will cause you to arrive at the musical goals that you've set for yourself. She can help you or your child prepare for upcoming auditions, as well as any other scheduled performance. Cyndi will create a lesson plan that will certainly be tailor-made for your style and needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring my Cd player to play tracks etc....the student should have a recording device to record the lesson, whatever performance tracks we'd be working from, and a keyboard would be helpful but not necessary.

*** Specialties ***
My style of vocal training concentrates on singing in the 'Ng" position and using cuperto as the primary way to produce more tone with less effort. I also train my students to breath properly utilizing the lower lumbar area along with breathing from their diaphragm. I generally train vocal students in all genres of music and I stress stage presence in conjunction with proper vocal technique.

Soddy Daisy, TN
View Full Profile

Brett has produced and engineered songs heard on dozens of network and cable TV shows. Provided the student seeks to learn DAW home recording techniques, there is much Brett can teach about tracking, mixing and mastering. Brett uses Logic software in his own home studio.

About Brett
Brett is a professional guitar player with more than 20 years of experience. Brett's music can be heard on more than 150 network and cable television shows. These include The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, The Office, Oprah, My Name Is Earl, King of the Hill, Access Hollywood, MTV's The Real World, Saving Grace, and Guiding Light. Brett has also composed and performed music on commercials for Wal-Mart and Pacific Gas & Electric. In addition, he regularly performs at weddings, corporate events, and restaurants.

Over the years, Brett has maintained a roster of 30 or more guitar students, ranging in age from seven to 70. The reason for his success is that Brett makes lessons fun. Regardless of your musical taste and personal goals, he teaches you what you want to learn.

*** Lesson Details ***
Brett likes to tailor lessons to the need
s and goals of the student. Beginners will likely start with a standard lesson book and grow from there. More advanced players may want to spend time learning their favorite songs, "jamming," or focusing on specific aspects of their playing such as improvisation ("soloing") or rhythm guitar. All students should expect noticeable improvement over a three-to-six-month period, and be able to transcend merely playing notes and chords, but instead learning to play songs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Electric guitar, acoustic guitar, bass guitar, amps, music stands and lesson books

*** Travel Equipment ***
Brett can happily provide extra guitars, lesson books, and music stands if that will make it more convenient for the student. For best results, students should have a decent guitar, lesson book, and music stand at home for practicing.

*** Specialties ***
Rock, Blues, Pop, Singer-Songwriter

Brett is a fun guy to learn an instrument with. He's very easy going and builds the lessons around your interests. Since I was a total beginner, Brett started me with a lesson book, to get some basics down. When that started to get a little dry, we added some easy songs that I chose by musicians I enjoy, to keep things interesting. Then we go back to skill building with either the lesson book or exercises Brett gives me that are relevant to the music we have just learned. Each week we focus on just a few new things, to keep the lessons manageable. So there is a little bit of structure and a little bit of improvising. It's a comfortable, casual environment. All in all, Brett is a great teacher!

Rick's lessons have been really enjoyable. He starts off with fundamentals, but keeps it fun by helping you learn songs of your choice. When you get further into the lessons the songs start to make more sense and I was able to understand why they sounded how they did. My lessons with Rick have been great and I feel like I've learned a lot.

· Guitar · In studio
My name is Ronald S. At the age of 9, I started playing the guitar for my Father's Gospel Group who is a great Gospel D.J. (Big Clyde). Through the years I have taken several guitar courses from several instructors. In the last seven months I have taken instructions from Mr. Christian, I have excelled further and have learned more than all my other adventures.

Micheal's business based environment in an open studio type classroom is a must. In Micheal's unique style of teaching you not only learn to play the guitar, but he also instructs you in song with a spirit of being well satisfied.

As shoppers pass through the store they enjoy the sounds of students playing their guitars following the guidance of Mr. Christian. This also gives his students a chance to perform in front of other people giving them a finer definitions for the art of music. If you are looking for a music instructor, one who focuses in on your difficult areas and searches for improvement to make you the best musician possible in all areas, or if you are just looking to learn and have lots of fun, then Mr. Christian is your contact. Please visit him at one of his jam sessions..

In April of this year, I retained Michael to instruct my 13 year old daughter, Jennifer, in guitar lessons. I was quite impressed with Mr. Michael right from the beginning.

Since I knew nothing about guitars, I had no idea what type of guitar to purchase for Jennifer. Mr. Christian offered on his own time to go with us to help in the purchase of the guitar. He kept in mind what we could afford and the quality of the guitars, it was very reassuring to know that he was looking out for our welfare and to be able trust him.

I am very impressed with the progress Jennifer has made in playing the guitar. She looked forward to her lessons with Mike. She looked forward to her lessons with Mike. He made the lessons interesting and "fun". Mike not only taught her to play the guitar but also how to read music and understand it.

Mike is a very kind, moral, talented young man and I recommend him highly. We are sorry to see him leave, however, our loss is your gain.

About Carl
As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the time I was in high school I was learning piano, performing jazz, and composing music.
I went on to get a Bachelor of Music at the University of North Texas. I have been performing professionally for over 18 years. I also have taught band for 11 years in Dallas ISD. I enjoy teaching and mentoring other up and coming musicians. It's a joy to see another world open up to them through music.
Through my warm and positive personality and experience as a certified music teacher and music performer, I understand how to meet the social and education
al needs of each music student. I am well versed at solving problems and helping students thrive and reach their full potential. I think that I do this best by personalizing the instruction experience for each unique situation. I love to encourage students and help them discover the music in them.

Hello! I am offering my services as a music teacher. I have been playing guitar and piano since I was 10 years old (and I'm 26 now!). I was classically trained for over 10 years, until finally decided to cease private lessons and begin my music production and composing career.

I currently have multiple original compositions online with anywhere between 20,000 plays to over 1 million on youtube and other music hosting websites.

About Travis
Hello! I am offering my services as a music teacher. I have been playing guitar and piano since I was 10 years old (and I'm 26 now!). I was classically trained for over 10 years, until finally decided to cease private lessons and begin my music production and composing career.

I currently have multiple original compositions online with anywhere between 20,000 plays to over 1 million on youtube and other music hosting websites. My expertise lies in virtual instrumentation.

I can offer traditional music lessons in Piano and Guitar or, a more unique approach that would involve recording, production, mastering techniques, virtual and digital audio and more.

I work well with children and youth. I work for the State of Ohio as a counselor for youth with disabilities. I have a masters degree in professional counseling.

If you have any
questions about what I can offer, don't hesitate to contact me!!
Thanks for reading!

Great instructor...very friendly and informative to even the basic of beginners!! My son is so excited and eager to go further and it's been a long time since I've seen him excited about something other than video games ;-) Our prayers were answered and we look forward to many more sessions with Travis!! :-)

Travis is patient and encouraging. He makes the guitar learning experience a positive one for the student no matter what the age of that student.( I am 65)

Travis is very talented and also very patient! My daughter loves him because he's kind and he doesn't get angry when she doesn't get it. He laughs with her and they just keep trying. He's the best teacher we've ever had (we've tried three). We'll be sticking with Travis!
