About L'Marco
I am not just a teacher, having the experience of successfully launching a solo career in the pop markets and working with some of the best in the industry! Thus, not only do I give instruction on basic and intermediate singing technique(s), I also focuses heavily on the performance aspect of music.

"There is nothing greater to witness on stage, than a singer who both has the talent and the ability to captivate their audience's full attention." - L. S.

I studied for 5 years at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at CSU, Long Beach. I studied everything from Classical to Jazz, so I'm knowledgeable on how to yield results in various genres. My musical education, however, dates far before my collegiate career, offering assurance to my students that they will, indeed, get the most from their lessons: the Ability, the Finesse (sharpenin
g of their natural talent), and the Confidence (which is one of the most vital elements of performance).

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a very unique teaching style most would say. I'm very real, honest, upfront, and approachable. My feedback is constructive and insightful. I focus on technical singing, initially, to really establish a solid foundation for musicality and health longevity, then as progression is made, I put emphasis on performance methods. Throughout my lessons, confidence building is my main focus! Most of my students can attest that if the work is put in, the best results are put out! I teach many genres: Classical, Pop/R&B, Rock, Country, and Musical Theatre!

L'Marco is providing my 8 year old son more than what I thought. He's teaching the things that go along with singing and the words and definition as well as having exams so he will really know what they mean. Diction, posture, diaghragm,larynax, glissando (?). He's teaching him pitch, performance and stage presence. Because of L'Marco and his wonderful teachings my son has song the lead to a song in church which he was very afraid before. Now he has many request to lead solos and perform at 2 separate banquets this year (2014). Several of my friends want to utilize L;Marco for their children... NO NO he's all mine. lol

L'Marco shares his soul/power through teaching!

I've been studying under L'Marco Smith for almost a year and can say not only has my singing ability improved but my confidence in myself and my voice as well. Not only does he focus on technique but is passionate about instilling the idea that music is all about the intention and message you want to leave your audience. I tend to put stress and pressure on myself being such a serious artist constantly looking for perfection but L'Marco has been there time after time reminding me with his enthusiasm, humor and supportive outlook to enjoy the journey. He has taught me to make bold mistakes, know you have been given a gift to share, and take responsibility don't be ashamed of your voice. I've never met such a teacher who would kill to see you succeed the way he does. I know working with him, I am becoming the confident/power/successful/artist I've always dreamed I could be.

About Ross
Ross has been teaching for five years in both a school environment - in which he helped develop a performing arts department from the ground up - as well as private lessons, where his students succeeded musically and theatrically, having performed on Broadway, Off-Broadway, with the Rockettes, and on international tours. His teaching philosophy is simple. Everyone can sing, most simply don't know how.

As a performer himself, Ross is a singer, actor, and photographer who graduated from the prestigious New York University with a Dual-Degree Master's of Music in Vocal Performance and Vocal Pedagogy. He has performed across the country regionally and on tour, in such iconic roles as "Marius" in Les Miserables, "Jack" and "The Baker" in Into the Woods, "Roger" in A New Brain, and "Anthony" in Sweeney Todd.

I highly recommend taking voice lessons with Ross! I took lessons with Ross for just under a year when he was teaching in the Boston area. First, I was in an a Capella singing class Ross taught. In a short time, he had our group working together well to make good music. Ross is a very positive and encouraging teacher and could always zero in quickly on exactly what we needed to work on to improve our sound. I also took private voice lessons with Ross, and he helped me to successfully prepare an audition for a summer vocal program. As a private teacher, I always felt like he was always able to help me identify a couple of strategies to fix any problem I was having, so I grew a lot as a singer. He has a wealth of knowledge about musical theater, and helped me to really understand the piece I was working on, so I could make my performance come alive. I felt like he really cared about my vocal development and I learned many things that I will always use when I sing.

About Sylvia
Hello! My name is Sylvia and I'm here to help you learn a new skill or master it to a new level! I've been teaching private lessons since 2001 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, at the public library, and online. I have loved helping my students with education classes such as mathematics, english, science, dancing salsa and cha cha, painting, illustrating fashion, sewing, computer coding, playing the violin, to personal training.

I have always had many interests and luckily I worked hard at them with great teachers to achieve great levels. I went to University of New South Wales and earned a degree in Software Engineering in 2003, and also Sydney TAFE to earn a Fashion Design degree in 2009.

I'm a friendly and understanding person and my teaching style is patient, motivating, and positive. I believe everyone
can achieve what they want with the right mindset and the right opportunity. My aim is to help you reach your goals and make you feel accomplished!

About Alexander
My current teaching focus is helping to enable young people to develop confidence, self-direction and self-reliance in their life's work by unleashing their creativity in various subjects while offering them new skills and techniques.

I have been enthusiastically teaching for over twenty-five years, generally in the fields of fine art and web development. Previously, I founded an alternative K-12 school in New Jersey, co-founded a Brooklyn based summer camp, and most recently, co-founded play:groundNYC, a junkyard playground for children on Governors Island in New York City, where children are self-directed in their play with an array of junk materials for uninhibited play and discovery.

I am a certified New York State art teacher, have taught K-12, college, graduate, and continuing education. I have a Masters in Fine Art from Pars
ons School of Design, The New School University and a Bachelors of Arts from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University.

Alex is kind and patient. He is always well prepared, explains things clearly and makes an effort to come up with new activities. We're glad we found a teacher so close to home and we feel lucky. My daughter looks forward to every class. Sometimes Alex's sons join the lesson. They are lovely - my daughter really enjoys their company and I'm glad that she has both individual instruction as well as the chance to work with his kids.

Our 9 year old has spent many hours with Alex creating clay sculptures, wooden weaponry, and forts from old cardboard and tires. He also taught him how to code in order to create his own blog. Alex inspires, guides and challenges kids but allows them to self-direct themselves in order to make their own personal and creative decisions.

About Tim
I'm a professional musician, photographer, and photography teacher. I graduated from Hofstra University with a major in Public Relations and a minor in photography.

I learned to teach photography working as an aide in the university darkrooms - running small group classes, and providing a critical eye on larger projects.

My musical teaching expertise stems from 18 years of cello performance, preferring to work with new students, and intermediate students looking for artistic direction. When working with others, I prefer to have students have projects of their own aspirations, in order to help drive their passion for what they're doing.

For photography lessons, expect to go to different locations each day, to capture a wide variety of lighting situations and interesting landscapes in Northern Jersey - remember your hiking boots!
