Shayna E.

Warwick, RI

About Shayna

I'm a 27 year old voice teacher, graduating from Rhode Island College with a Bachelor's Degree in Musical Theatre Performance. I have been teaching voice for almost 4 years now and I couldn't be happier with my career! I love music, and I love being with children, so being a voice teacher is the best fit for me. I have participated in many theater companies in Rhode Island, most recently appearing as the lead female role in Rhode Island College's "Pippin". I have had ten years of vocal training with several voice teachers, so I know what it is like to be the student. Being a student for so lo
ng, I know what works and is helpful, and what doesn't work. I look forward to my lessons as a teacher, and I know you will look forward to our lessons too!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a patient, easy going person and I like to make my students feel comfortable. Our lesson will always be FUN! It will also be productive. We will work on areas that the student wants to improve on, and I will offer constructive criticism, all with a positive outlook. I provide recitals for my students several times a year. You will have the chance to show family and friends what you have learned from our lessons!

During lessons, I like to focus on the students strengths', and I will find songs that highlight the students best qualities in their voice. Our lessons will start with warm-ups, and after your voice is ready to go, we will learn and practice songs that I have selected for you with your interests in mind. The songs that I choose will be from my vocal books and I will provide you with copies of the sheet music, and also a CD of the songs so you can practice in between lessons. As our lessons progress, you will be able to sing with a stronger, healthier voice and overall, just sound better!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a keyboard and I will bring that to our lessons. I will also provide the student with the music we study and a folder to keep it in.

*** Specialties ***
I have a lot of experience in musical theater singing. I love many styles of music, so I'm sure after finding out what you are interested in, I could find songs we can work on that you will love to learn and perfect!

Kathleen F.

Providence, RI

About Kathleen

Kathleen is a classically trained bass clarinetist and flutist who has over 15 years of experience.

During high school Kathleen performed on a variety of instruments under the direction of Metro Narcisi, and found her passion laid with the woodwind family. Kathleen then attended the Community College of Rhode Island where she graduated with an Associates in Fine Arts with High Honors. She showed promise in music theory, and her orchestration of the Annie Overture was chosen for the opening of 2011 Hello Broadway!

After receiving her Associates, she continued her studies at Rhode Island
College where she received a Bachelors of Arts with concentrations in Music Theory and Music History. She showed a high aptitude for counterpoint and twentieth century theory, and concentrated on female studies in her musicology studies. While attending RIC, Kathleen had the benefit of studying clarinet under Ian Grietzer, principal clarinetist for the RI Philharmonic Orchestra and Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra and flute under Mary Ellen Kregler. She also performed in a variety of chamber ensembles on bass clarinet, flute, and alto saxophone including New Music Ensemble, Sax Quartet, and Early Music Ensemble to name a few.

While attending RIC, Kathleen decided to open her own studio and offer lessons in clarinet, flute, saxophone, and music theory. After graduation, she has remained a community member of the Rhode Island College Wind Ensemble and is with the Rhode Island Wind Ensemble and Charles River Wind Ensemble performing on both bass and contrabass clarinet. She was voted into the positions of Music Librarian and Personnel Manager for the RI Wind Ensemble in May 2015 and frequently performs on piccolo in a variety of marching bands throughout Southern New England.

Kathleen is available to teach in three convenient locations including her studio in Providence located on the RIC Campus, the Amped Music School in Richmond, and your living room!

Stan M.

Coventry, RI

About Stan

Hi! I am a private music instructor with a B.M. degree from Berklee College of Music and over 34 years' full-time experience in the field. I also have decades of experience as a professional jazz, rock, and theater musician. My teaching style is laid-back, gentle, informative, and very supportive. My focus is on enrichment and encouragement. I don't work with one-size-fits-all methods. Each lesson is customized to make the most of each student's own unique abilities and interests. I am very experienced in working with students of all ages, including very young children (ages 4 and up). I teach
real music -- students begin playing music they love almost from day-one. For example, many of my piano and guitar students pride themselves on learning to play the every song on Beatles One ... playing right along with the CD! Reading, playing by ear, improvisation, singing while you play ... there are so many ways to play and avenues to explore in music. Do you have a song or two in your heart. Contact me today!

Stan Has been my instructor for eight months. Bottom Line...terrific! He is a master of his craft and a really-really gifted teacher. I tried a number of teachers over the years and got discouraged. There are many alleged "Music Teachers " that cant read music! Stan is a Suma Cum Laude (that's #1 in the class) Honors graduate of Berkley School of Music in Boston! The real deal!!

I walk away from every lesson as excited as the first. I highly recommend Stan to my family and friends!

Stan is an awesome teacher. He breaks down the subject material very intuitively but also finds a way to explain intricate concepts in a clear manner. I've learned so much and I would recommend him to anyone!

I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano and now I am thoroughly enjoying taking lessons from Stan. He's a very patient instructor who fills me with confidence. I look forward to my lesson every week and the time spent there just flies by so fast. Stan is very interesting and gives me a lot of information to help me understand music historically and in practice. He tailors his lesson to me. A great teacher! Thanks Stan!

Elizabeth N.

Storrs Mansfield, CT

About Elizabeth

Too busy during the school year? I am providing a summer voice program of eight weeks, beginning in early June. At the end of the eight weeks, you will perform a memorized, accompanied piece in a recital. It will be the culmination of our work together.

I am passionate about singing and teaching. I love the excitement of helping my students find their voice, and seeing what they learn about themselves along the way.

As a voice teacher, my goal is to discover and develop the student's natural instrument. I value above all the production of a healthy and vibrant sound. In working with youn
g voices, I emphasize vocal health and take care to build a strong foundation of breath support and accurate diction. I am careful to select repertoire based on what technical aspect of the voice I would like to work on with that particular student. And even more important than all of that is to have fun!

I can't wait to get started working with you!

15 Powerful Audition Songs for Altos
The most important part of vocal auditions is taking a piece and making it your own. When looking for talent, directors don’t want to hear another rendition of something they have heard many times before; you need to make sure you stand out! In musical theater, your song choice is usually dependent on the role for which you are auditioning. Many singers recommend avoiding songs from shows like Les Miserables and Wicked, as these are very common choices and tend to be overused; however, if you
