About Barry
I have almost 30 years of experience teaching voice, working with choral groups, voice students as well as classroom music instruction. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Music Education as well as a Masters degree in music from an accredited school of music and have been performing both as a soloist and in vocal performance groups since I was a teenager. I bring to the vocal/music studio all of this experience as well as a heart to pass along this experience to others that desire to share the song that is in their heart. If it is your desire to sing, play the keyboard or guitar, please get in touch with me!

*** Lesson Details ***
When a student gets started with me , wherever their interest lies, I work to discover where they are on their musical journey, discuss some goals they would like to set for themselves and put a teaching and le
arning plan into motion.

For vocalists my primary goal is to assist anyone who is looking to improve the tonal quality and strength of their singing or speaking voice while reducing vocal tension and voice fatigue.

I facilitate singers of any level, age or style who seek to improve breath support, diction, range, tone quality, and ease of singing. This is achieved through a variety of singing exercises, fun vocal drills and creative singing games that we do in lesson time and with instruction on what to do at home.

For individuals seeking to develop basic musical understandings in theory, keyboard skills and guitar, I endeavor to start with were they are and take them to where they desire to be as a musician; opening up doors of music understanding and performance skills that help them on their musical journey.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard/Piano, Sound system, computer

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a portable Keyboard if needed for in home keyboard lessons.

*** Specialties ***
Children's Voice and Vocal Techniques for all ages. Beginning piano and Keyboard basics.

About Glenn
I have been active in the entertainment industry since the age of 12, when I gave my first professional performance. Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the house, in the yard, in the classroom. That is perhaps why I identify so well with the young people who gather so much enjoyment from "just singing" at every opportunity. I studied professionally for over 10 years with renown soprano and voice teacher Sylvia Jensen, who was instrumental in the enhancement of my vocal knowledge and technique. She is now the Director of Education for the Miss Ohio pageants of the Miss America competitions, elevating many young ladies to the national spotlight. At age 14, I auditioned for, and was added to cast of a
network television variety program, "The Gene Carroll Show", that was a television institution for over 30 years in the Midwest. I was a featured performer on that program for over 7 years, all the while perfecting the art of "playing to a camera." This experience was invaluable, and the knowledge I gathered is now included in my curriculum. I also began performing a solo act in the nightclub circuit at the age of 15, performing up and down the "north coast" from Cleveland, OH, (my home), to Erie. PA. At a very young age, I learned the difficult art of choosing musical material and pacing a show; also adapting to performing under a myriad of conditions with a vast array of musical accompaniment. After graduating college with a degree in Business Administration and Marketing, I assembled my own band, and took to the road. That experience eventually brought the act to Las Vegas in 1982. Over the years my show has been a staple in major casino cabarets in Las Vegas, and all over Nevada. Since my first engagement at The Landmark Hotel in the early 1980's, I have literally been up and down the famed Las Vegas Strip many times over. The Desert Inn, The Dunes, The Stardust, The Maxim, The Tropicana, New York New York, Mandalay Bay, MGM, Bally's, The Flamingo, The Imperial Palace, The Four Queens, The Golden Nugget, The Fremont, The Venetian, The Palazzo, and a three year engagement at The Riviera. My show is truly comprised of musical variety; classics, show tunes, jazz, rock, blues, r&b, country. Even a presentation of "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera, that I perform in full costume. It is this ability to successfully deliver an extensive repertoire that I am enthusiastic about passing along to the next generation of entertainers.

I have been truly blessed in my career to have experienced so many highlights; too many to document. From winning an understudy roll in the Broadway Musical "Platinum" starring Hollywood actress Alexis Smith, to performing our National Anthem at events ranging from Major League Baseball to ESPN Boxing to receptions for major dignitaries, to recording 7 albums and a full-length video, to being asked to perform for Mr. Frank Sinatra at the Frank Sinatra Celebrity Golf Tournament, I have lived a full life on stage, learning and absorbing every bit of knowledge gathered along the way.
Now it is my desire to escalate my status as an educator to a more "one on one" experience; availing myself the opportunity to pass along that wealth of knowledge to individual students who aspire to enjoy the entertainment profession as I have, providing them with the skills needed to successfully compete. Or, should it be their choice not to pursue entertainment as a vocation, to gain a working understanding of all facets of their instrument so as to gain a better appreciation of music. Whatever the goal of the student, I feel that I am equipped to provide them with the tools needed to achieve that goal.

*** Lesson Details ***
Content of Sessions

Generally, the first 10-15 minutes of each lesson will be focused on vocal warm up and exercise. (For guitar students, we will review the previous
week's assignment). For Vocal Students, it is understood that the voice mechanism is made up of muscles, and as an athlete prepares for a sporting event, a singer must prepare to vocalize. It is at this time in our lesson when the student will develop good habits of voice maintenance, which will serve them well throughout their careers. The proper care and preservation of the vocal unit cannot be stressed enough, especially for pubescent and pre-pubescent students. Vocal chords in a developmental stage are most susceptible to damage, and because they are particularly sensitive, they must be handled with care. Our warm up regimen is designed to strengthen as well as preserve the singing voice.

I am not an advocate of getting too involved and "bogged down" in the technical aspects of singing, especially with the young students, and
especially early in our program. This is not to say that breath control, tonality, pitch, etc. are not vital to good singing, because these workings are ESSENTIAL, and their application will certainly be incorporated into our studies. Some instructors, on occasion, have a tendency to lose sight of the fact that much to do with singing happens "naturally", and too much focus on the "technical" can actually be inhibiting. This can alter a beautiful, natural tone into one that is unnatural and contrived.

I adhere to the philosophy that above all else, SINGERS WANT TO SING SONGS, and musicians-in-training want to play music. That is our focus, and all of our training is conceived with that objective in mind. All the technical knowledge and coaching serves no purpose without practical application. It is my belief that the most significant progress occurs when a vocalist is singing a song.

Nearly every element of instruction can be utilized in the performance of one song. This is why the majority of our session time will be spent "in song". For the very young student, we will concentrate our efforts with the students choices of favorite and familiar songs. The older students will undoubtedly have favorite songs, styles and artists. Special attention will be paid to the genre most enjoyed by the student, but diversity will be emphasized as well, and a variety of genres will be unpacked and explored. I believe that whatever a student's musical goals and aspirations, it is in their best interest to gain knowledge and insight in all facets of music, singing, and performance.

The most vital pre-requisite for any student is their enthusiasm. My ambition will be to harness that enthusiasm and channel it productively through stimulating instruction. Our sessions will be informative and educational, but always predicated upon "having fun with music".

I am proud to feature a curriculum that emphasizes the entertainment aspect of singing as well as the technical; created to benefit all ages and experience levels, from beginner to seasoned professional. After just weeks of my "Triple Threat Training" a student will begin to see astounding results: vocally, musically, and in the art of performance. I am excited to share my knowledge with you. Let's get started!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is equipped with a full vocal sound system with microphones that I utilize to teach the valuable art of mic technique. Young students enjoy using the mics and hearing themselves sing and perform. Since our lessons are predicated on enjoying the art of singing, this opportunity has proven invaluable. For the advanced performer, studying all aspects of amplification and what a singer should know about their stage sound is a part of our educational curriculum. My studio is furnished with the equipment that is essential to mastering that knowledge.
Since the practical aspect of my course is based on singing songs, I provide all the latest technology required to allow my students the opportunity to sing the songs of their choosing, with and without the lead vocal tracks. I feel that when students are singing their favorite songs, it offers me the greatest teaching opportunities. I make certain the every musical genre can be represented, and feel I have the knowledge and ability to guide the student is whatever their musical tastes. My studio is also equipped with piano (for vocal exercises), and guitars, which gives me opportunity to accompany my students when the musical moment is appropriate. Be assured that all the technology I need to fulfill the educational needs of my students is but a step away!!

About Britni
I have been studying the voice and healthy vocal
methods for over a decade. Previously, I was a Certified Speech Level Singing (SLS) Instructor under Maestro Seth Riggs, and am now currently a Certified Institute for Vocal
Advancement (IVA) Instructor.

I am very passionate about singing and teaching, and have so much fun doing so. As a voice instructor I require of myself to constantly excel and commit to a number of educational
hours and events each year. This process encourages me to be a teacher who is constantly growing and bettering myself for my students. I am passionate about continuously advancing my education by observing Master Teacher's from
around the world instruct both vocal pedagogy and performance development courses.
 My devotion is to help each student find confidence, strength, and agility in their own unique v
oice. One of my greatest strengths is my ability to communicate and connect with people. I am quick to help my students feel at ease
and build their confidence – while also diagnosing the voice and helping the student grow and improve. 

While being fun-loving and easy-going I also take great pride in helping my students to succeed in every capacity possible.

I have studied with the acclaimed Jeffrey Skouson as both a vocal student and as a teacher. Other Master Teacher's I have at one point studied with, or under, are: Maestro Seth Riggs, Greg Enriquez, Spencer Welch, Linda Tomkinson, Kathy
Kennedy, John Henny, Dave Stroud, Guy Babusek, Stephanie Borm, and more.

 I am immensely passionate about teaching and furthering my education and experience, and am completely devoted to continuously educate myself to be a first-class teacher for my students. Come on in and enjoy the fun of singing!

*** Lesson Details ***
While studying voice may have its challenges and frustrations,
it still can be (& should be!) enjoyable and inspiring!

In our lessons you will spend the first half vocalizing and warming up the voice, and then the second half working on repertoire. I will record your vocalices (on a CD or other device) for you to practice with for the week. I am not a genre teacher, but a technique teacher. With whatever genre you wish to sing you can apply the technique. I will work with you on your song to change vowels and notes where needed, and also help you to connect to the story of the song.

I try to make the environment I teach in stress-free and
enjoyable. Before coming to a first lesson a student may feel intimidated or nervous, but please keep in mind that I am not here to judge or tear-down a student... Instead I am here to take them where they are at and help them to improve and grow. I will also never ask you to do something that will harm your voice – your vocal health is my main priority. I stand behind my education and personal experiences, and will only deliver my personal best to you.

As stress-free as my lessons are, there are still a few
expectations. I ask my students to do their own part and practice their vocalices throughout the week. The vocalices are designed to help your voice strengthen and increase in range and skill, therefore by practicing during the week you are helping your voice to continue to grow.

Come willing to learn, have fun, and make some silly noises in the meantime – you will be making some funny sounds, but they are designed to strengthen the vocal cords agility and adduction. In a nutshell, come prepared to sing! What good is a voice lesson without some singing?! Am I right?! :).
Also come prepared knowing you will make mistakes – mistakes are an important part of learning, and the sooner we stop expecting perfection is actually when we start to learn & grow the best. I do not expect perfection, just growth! And most of all, come prepared to have fun and to learn!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a piano to play scales, computer to record lessons and play songs, a sound system for music, a microphone & stage for performances/showcases (which are done at least twice a year), and a waiting area.
My current studio location is at a Theatre Company located in Henderson near 215 & Gibson. Parents are welcome to sit in the lobby or relax in their car as their child has their voice lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I studied the Speech Level Singing (SLS) method for over 8 years, and was a certified teacher in the method for over 2 years. I am currently now a certified teacher with the Institute for Vocal Advancement (IVA). I have requirements within my certifications to test yearly with a Master Teacher to ensure I am teaching healthy & proper technique. I specialize in technique and, regarding genres, I focus mostly on Broadway or Pop. However, through the technique I teach, I can help any genre of singer improve their vocal abilities.

About Michelle
I am a 22 yr old student at the College of Southern Nevada who is currently working toward a degree in music; while still making time to play in a band. I was in High School When I bought my first guitar and developed a passion for music. For me music opened the door to a new lifestyle and ultimately led me to begin teaching and sharing music with others. I have taught a variety of ages, ranging from children to adults. For beginner guitarists, I believe there can be just as much joy and fun as there can be practice. I strive to make everything simple while important skills are learned. I am a patient and committed teacher who can show you these skills that will help to make you a well-rounded musician.

***Lesson Details***
Each lesson will consist of a unique and personalized curriculum to fit the student’s needs. This will be done a
t a pace that allows for confidence to be built and a complete understanding of the material. Each student is taught the basic skills of guitar so that they can become an independent and self-sufficient musician with a strong fundamental foundation. Crucial skills such as reading music, scales, various chords, and more will be taught in each lesson. Each lesson will be just as enjoyable as it is informative. After all, “pleasure in a job puts perfection in the work”. That is why I ask each Student to bring a song or piece that he/she enjoys working on. Overtime, all the skills learned will allow students to play with confidence!

***Studio Equipment***
Students will be provided all handouts and paper material. Books, guitars, and amps are available to use during each lesson. Over time it is recommended that you work on acquiring your own equipment as well.

I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.
