About Michael
Michael is an artist/songwriter with a broad background of
experience from live performances and studio work across the US and
Europe. He has sung for many labels, publishers, and on jingles. As a
songwriter, he has songs recorded internationally by other artists and
in film. He has a Bachelors of Music in Commercial Vocal Performance
from Belmont University (Nashville, TN). As a vocal instructor, he held
a Masterclass of commercial Voice for the Royal Academy of Music in
London in. Michael works with singers of all levels from beginners to professionals.

*** Lesson Details ***
Michael covers all modern styles of music; pop, soul, jazz,
r&b, country, rock, and on and on. Michael works with all levels
of singers, from beginners to professionals, who want to work on
specific areas.

Michael will help you improve your...


Technique- We will help you improve breathing, phrasing, improving tone, projection and develop range.

Artistry- Some singers already have a sense of "who they are" and
have found their "sound" as artists, and others need help refining it.
We'll look at what songs are great for you, (maybe you write your own)
how to style songs and make them your own and even experiment with
different genres.

Performance skills- It's one thing to sing in a room one on one
with a vocal instructor and quite another to be onstage with an
audience with all eyes on you as you stand in front of the mic. How do
you connect with your audience? How do you handle nerves? How do you
talk between songs? Some of these things are learned best from
experience. Most singers are working on their voice because they want
to perform. Michael will provide opportunities for performance
experience for each artist when each individual is ready.

Be an Intelligent singer- Learn how to be ready for an audition.
How to communicate with a band /accompanists. How to know what keys you
need your songs in. Learn about singing harmonies/backing vocals. Learn
about recording vocals in the studio.

This is what one new student had to say about their first lesson with Michael...

"I had SO much fun
this past Sunday, Michael. I already feel like I learned a great deal. You are
such a fun and easy going teacher. Can't wait for the next one. Thanks!"

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a keyboard and a laptop. It would be nice if they could provide a CD player, but not necessary.

Michael is the best singing teacher I've ever had. He has done a wonderful job of helping me to reach the potential that I knew I had as a singer.

His unique and innovative approach to vocal warm ups has helped me to find and define my vocal range.

He also happens to be an excellent vocal arranger, having helped me to add vocal accents to my songs that have given them new life.

Thank you for everything Michael!

Michael has been a savior for me, both in terms of expanding my vocal capacity and helping me develop my artistry and songwriting! He is encouraging, kind, fun, motivating and professional. He has truly been a caring teacher, mentor, and guide for me as I move forward in my music career, and has gone above and beyond his job as a vocal coach, taking the time and energy to invest in understanding my artistic vision, and helping me articulate and execute each step along the way. I would recommend him to anyone looking for guidance in a talented vocal coach and all around professional music mentor!Thank you Michael!

Michael is the best! Right from the start he picked up on the weak areas of my voice and we've been working on it since. He goes through the exercises such that I'm singing the way I wanted without even thinking about it. And he doesn't miss a thing. If I miss a note he's right there having me do it over again until I get it right.

He also explained in detail what the problem areas were and how to fix them. Describing with words how to use the human voice is no easy task, but he knows exactly how to get the point across.

I was originally pessimistic about online lessons, but I thought I'd try it since I couldn't find anyone with credentials and experience like Michael's in Atlanta for less than a gajillion an hour. I was pleasantly surprised. I can sing in the comfort of my own home, and it's just like he's right there with me.

Thanks Michael!

About Kendra
My love of music and sharing that through one on one instruction has only increased over the course of my career. I began studying violin and viola during my primary education. With the tutelage of my wonderful private instructor, I was able to successfully audition and perform with various orchestral groups. This experience inspired me to continue my musical studies and performance at the University of Colorado and the University of Brandon (Canada). During the course of my professional career I have expanded my studies to other musical genres including blues, jazz, rock, folk, latin, and fiddle styles. This opened the door to freelance, record, and perform in various venues while maintaining a 'classical' career as well. Whether online or in person, I tailor the lesson for each of my students to be able to pursue their particular mu
sical interests while learning a solid classical approach to technique and theory.

About Owen
I'm a pianist, saxophonist, composer, teacher, and the bandleader of Mente Clara. I began teaching piano as a teenager in 2004, when I assisted one of my former teachers at a summer piano institute. I've operated my own studio since 2007. I teach students of all ages and skill levels. I'm conversant in a variety of styles, but I especially love working on improvisation, composition, jazz, and the music of Brazil. My ultimate goal as a teacher is to spark a love of music in every one of my students, whether it be as a listener or player. I want this to be fun for everyone involved!

I stress strong fundamentals in young students and usually teach beginning students out of the Faber Piano Adventures method, although I supplement the method books with a variety of exercises and pieces of my own. I generally prefer that beginning students g
o through some classical repertoire before expanding their horizons, but we can often work concurrently on other styles of music. From every student's very first lesson, I challenge them to consider the bigger, often overlooked musical picture. Needless to say, all lessons are tailored to the student's desires and needs.

More broadly, I believe that music is an essential part of life and that studying it develops and stimulates our minds in ways that have positive outcomes in other facets of life. I don't expect my students to become professional musicians, or even that they continue to play music into adulthood. Music encompasses the entire range of human emotion. It has ineffable qualities that can give us solace in times of pain and inspire us in times of joy. I hope to show that to all of my students instill a lifelong respect and passion for music.

My kids love Owen!! He is so patient, understanding and calm. My son has mentioned a few times that he would have quit piano if he had a different teacher. He teaches them a variety of music, not just classical, and gives them freedom to explore. He has given them a true appreciation and love of music. They have grown so much musically because of him. We will continue lessons with him via Skype even though he's moved away because they just don't want another teacher. -Holly

Owen has been our piano instructor for six years. He has taught all three of our children from ages six, to sixteen. His ability to relate to all skill levels, from beginner and up, has been a great asset in our household. Owen pushed them without condescension or frustration. He did a great job guiding them from not being able read sheet music or play an instrument, to actual musicians." -Paul Schuster (Austin, TX)

About Corrin
I primarily use Alfred's Teaching Method. If a student comes to me from another teacher, I will continue to use what they are familiar with. My youngest student's enjoy the Little Mozart series. I use the Prep Course for elementary students, Premier or Basic course with late elementary learners, Late Beginner course with teenagers & adults. This is a guideline. It's always best to meet the students/parents to see what works best for them. Piano lessons are not a cookie cutter method. I tailor them for each individual's learning type & music preference.

About Angie
I started playing the piano when I was about 8 years old living in Salt Lake City Utah. My family would be watching TV or doing something else and I would go upstairs and play the piano instead. I practiced until I got to the level to play Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata original composition. I still love to play that one. I also loved to play a piece my grandfather gave me called Cordoba, by Isaac Albeniz. I have played bass and keyboards in an original band giving a good knowledge of musical body language. From there I went on to teaching private and group lessons at Pianos n' Pianos studios. I use a few different method books. When deciding which one to use during a lesson, I assess the age of the student and what they can absorb. I started supplementing their lessons by using a write-it-out method, where students can take a few lines f
rom a song they like and combine it with other songs. That way they can “compose” and be more invested in the music we are playing.
If you play a wrong note, I tell my students to just keep going and to not lose concentration. Wrong notes happen sometimes. If you make a wrong note in a performance, you can’t stop, you just have to roll with it and keep going.
I also encourage singing with the piano that helps learns pitches and notes!
When teaching young children, I make sure to give them variety and plan lessons only about 30 minutes long. For adult learner, it is very good to play piano to keep the mind active and sharp. So really any age, 6 and up, is a good age!

About Pamela
I have spent a good part of my life sharing my love of music and the piano with students. I believe the Suzuki approach is the most natural way to learn music. You are never too old, and rarely too young to benefit from this method, which focuses on a nurturing and musically stimulating environment.

My specialty in Suzuki lessons offers a parent opportunity to learn about music and watch the child grown in poise, confidence and talent through the study of piano. Parent, teacher and child work together, sharing a delight in music and a respect for everyone's role and abilities. Students and families will be part of a larger music community through my membership in MTNA, NMTA and SAA. Register today so we can start working together.

Doing online Suzuki piano lessons with Pamela has been fantastic--so much better than I had imagined it could be. Pamela is very kind, encouraging, and inspiring as she interacts with my children. The online lessons have worked just fine, really I do feel like we get almost the exact same quality as we would if the lessons were in-person. I really wanted a Suzuki teacher, as I am committed to the method, but the nearest teacher is a 45 minute drive for us, so having lessons online has been a perfect fit for our family.
