I have a simple, no-nonsense approach to vocal training, helping students build the vocal strength and coordination necessary to sing efficiently, using principles and exercises learned through over a decade of intensive vocal study in NYC.

Please be advised that I expect students to learn their music on their own (although I'll certainly give you some learning strategies, help with tricky passages, etc.). If you are looking for someone to "teach you the notes," I'm probably not who you're looking for. But, if you want to learn how to sing well and are willing to put in the work, I'd love to help you achieve your goals!

About Ted

My name is Ted D. and I have been teaching private lessons in both guitar and voice for over a decade. I began playing guitar at age eleven and continued into college, where I majored in guitar performance. While in college I began studying voice seriously, adding a vocal performance major to my de

Knows his stuff, great teacher.

“If you can sing opera you can sing anything.” This is something I learned while taking vocal lessons with Ted Dougherty. Many voice teachers aim to silo you into one style of singing but that is not the case with Ted. He will help you build your voice to be the strongest it can be while encouraging you to practice and sing the types of music you are passionate about. Ted is an extremely talented musician who not only has the knowledge to teach you new techniques, but also has the ability to demonstrate those techniques. I started voice lessons with him when I was 12 years old and only ended my lessons with him when I went away to college years later. I truly believe, were it not for my lessons with Ted, I would not have the quality voice I have today. If I lived anywhere near Raleigh, NC, nothing would be able to stop me from going for voice lessons with Ted as often as possible.

If you are a singer, do yourself a favor and get lessons with Ted! I took voice lessons with him for two years it's been quite the game changer. I've been a singer since I was 6 and have had a lot of different vocal training and Ted's lessons were unlike any other. I never expected the techniques. They are designed to make you re-conceptualize how to make the sound until your voice is in the right place. The first few months of lessons were unlearning and really strange because it seemed like he was telling me to make ugly sounds most of the time. Later I realized how foundational and fundamental these practices are for a strong and healthy voice. If you stick with it, and practice regularly on your own, you will be able to do what you thought was not possible with your voice. Like perform Queen of the Night, or Defying Gravity, or Carry Underwood. It's been amazing to transform my voice so drastically, and I would never have gotten there without these lessons.

Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.
Yoella & Malkiya O.
Mr Yakov is very pleasant, patient and professional. He makes learning fun. One of my daughters is very shy and particular. I was concerned for her first violin. But she ended up loving the lesson and the instructor. We did some lessons online and at his studio. During the online lesson, the connection with our internet was horrible. He could hear her playing but she couldn't hear him. Yet, patiently, he got creative and taught the lesson with my daughter through chat. The environment of the studio is comfortable. You can tell he's passionate about what he does. That left me with a great impression of him. We look forward to more lessons with him for as long as we can.
Thanks Mr Yakov!!!

All ages are welcome! Viola is one of my secondary instruments and I would love to pass on my passion for music to my students. Students can expect to learn how to play the viola with proper technique in a way that is unique to each student. Brynn’s students will also learn basic music theory, which includes reading notes, rhythms and key signature recognition for all major and minor keys. Students can also expect to improve their overall musicianship skills while earning audition skills and gaining overall confidence. I cannot wait to work with you.

About Brynn

Brynn was such a great teacher for my daughter! She was engaging and supportive throughout the lesson. Her knowledge about music and the viola is phenomenal! My daughter is so excited to connect with Brynn for her lessons each week.
Salome
It was our first lesson and as a parent I trust Brynn to position my daughter to be a great violin player. As she instructed my child she also made sure that I understood what she was teaching so that I can assist her with practices at home. This was very forward thinking and I appreciated her sharing her knowledge with me! My daughter has a great time!
Macaria
Brynn is patient and kind while always pushing my daughter to reach for her potential. Being in the military we move frequently enough that it has disrupted our daughters passion for the violin. Her current school lumps all kids together based on grade not skill and that has been "boring". We are happy to see not only new things learned but our daughter is back to finding songs and attempting to learn them and practicing during homework breaks. Brynn has been phenomenal and I highly recommend her to anyone that wants to learn and have fun.

Hi!

I offer engaging and personalized guitar lessons for students. We build upon fundamentals skills through each lesson as the student learns their favorite songs. We also explore different aspects of music including improvisation, theory, composition, and even recording their own music. I provide study materials such as PDF files, backing tracks and videos to help students review what we cover in the lessons.

I had the privilege of receiving my B.A. in Guitar Performance from Berklee College of Music where I had the opportunity of learning and performing with great musicians from around the world. Because of my experience working with students of all ages from kids to adults, I truly believe that I can help anyone accomplish their musical goals!

I am currently only doing online lessons on Skype.

I look forward to meeting you and getting you started with lessons!

Best,

Juan

His lesson plans are geared towards what I want to learn and the lessons that we work on cover all the techniques that are necessary to take my skills to the next level.

"For the first evaluation I give Cara a 4 star. I can't say that she is the "best instructor ever" because I have never been instructed in music before.

Her knowledge of music is very good and her singing voice is excellent. I sang for her, got her input and sang again only better the second time around. She liked the way I sounded and has told me I am a tenor."

"The first review was incorrect sorry.. Mr. Frixos is by far a great teacher. He teaches my daughter the saxophone. He is very kind, patient and really enjoys what he teach you can see that passion and how dedicated he is in teaching. I give him a 5 star because he explains it not only to my daughter but to me as well so I can help her. We enjoy his lessons and he has a great price for the time he teaches I recommend Mr. Frixos because of his knowledge and dedication to this field. He is a fantastic teacher.

I am still a little stiff with the computer so sorry for the earlier post that was incorrect you are more than a 1 star Mr. Frixos."
