About Atalia

Everyone has a beautiful voice. Let me teach you how to make it heard.

My passion for music is the most pervasive quality of my personality. Consequently, passing that passion on to others is what brings me the most joy in life. My goal is to spread the love and appreciation for this unique and transcending art form through guidance, performance, and instruction. As my student, you will receive exactly what you (or your child) want out of the lessons-you are the one controlling what you want from them (be it any style of music, professional track or just for fun, music theory, and performance) and I am there to provide it. Music is nothing short of extremely fun and completely liberating.

I have always loved to sing and play guitar and piano starting from a young age, and I never gave up my determination and passion for perfor

ming. In middle and high school I did many musicals (Jekyll and Hyde, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Oliver, Miss Saigon, Little Shop of Horrors, Footloose, Kiss Me Kate, and Cats) and sang in the choir (including the California All State Honor Choir and Jazz Choir). I played guitar in the school Jazz Band and participated in many jam sessions out of school. I also participated in many piano competitions, including ones for my own composition (I received an honorable mention for one of my own piano works). In college, I received a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance as well as a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Redlands. I have recently completed my Master of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Redlands. I have performed many opera roles including Suor Angelica in Puccini's Suor Angelica, Violetta in Verdi's La Traviata, the Queen of the Night in Mozart's The Magic Flute, and Fiordiligi in Mozart's Cosi Fan Tutte, and Najade in Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos. I was also in the University Chapel Singers Choir, Madrigals Choir, and Treblemakers a Capella Jazz choir. I currently reside in Germany where I am teaching online lessons to students all over the world, teaching English, and pursuing an opera career. So far I have sung the role of the Queen of the Night in Weimar, Germany and have done a few concerts singing Christine from the Phantom of the Opera.

"Hard work beats talent if talent does not work hard." This is my favorite quote. I truly believe that hard work will take you anywhere, no matter where your starting point is. With hard work and determination, you can be anything you want to be. With motivation, anyone can be a beautiful singer, guitarist, and pianist. If I did not believe this with all my heart, I would not be where I am today. To me, every student has great potential. It is my job and joy to bring out that potential and cultivate it into talent, love, and passion.

LESSON DETAILS

My lessons are fun and rewarding. I do not believe that a critical environment is one that is healthy or pleasant to learn in. Therefore, I am a very encouraging, patient, and supportive teacher, and I will praise you for your improvements, as well as help you correct your difficulties. I like to think of my lessons as a team effort, with more emphasis on working together and having fun. With that being said, I believe that you get what you put in out of our lessons. The more you practice and the more you show me determination and motivation, the more we can have fun, improve technique, and really make music in our lessons.

I customize each lesson to my student, so you tell me what you want to sing or play and what your goals as a musician are, and I will instruct you (or your child) in the exact way that fits your goals and interests. After a couple months with me, you will have a new found passion for music, knowledge of proper technique, reading and diction, and the skills to perform and communicate pieces of music. Most importantly, you will have the time of your life!

My voice lessons consist of vocal warm-ups where you learn proper technique and posture, breathing exercises to expand your diaphragm and support when you sing, and Repertoire work where you apply the technique you learned, practice performance skills, and learn diction of English, Italian, German, Hebrew, or French.

My guitar and piano lessons start with learning how to read music (if you do not know already) and being familiar with the keys or frets and the notes on the staff. Then we work on pieces of music, paying attention to the key factors of musicianship including rhythm, interpretation, dynamics, composition, musicality, and performance practice. My music theory lessons are based on whatever the student wants to learn or needs instruction on. I teach anywhere from basic music notation to advanced harmonic and formal analysis.

My speaking and lessons are similar to my voice lessons, minus the singing aspect-the same technique we use for singing is the technique we must use for speaking if we want to be heard, be healthy, and not get tired or worse - lose our voice. We work on breathing and projection techniques and then practice on a reading sample or presentation.

My acting lessons consist of different improv-acting games, projection techniques, and monologue and role studies. You will learn how to communicate a message to the audience clearly and effectively while having a wonderful time!

My language and tutoring classes are focused on fluency-getting comfortable speaking in the target language. We go through chapters of a lesson plan I created myself-learning vocabulary and grammar by learning the functions of them and completing speaking goals. After just a few lessons, you will find that you will be able to converse in your target language. Your individual pace is the most important to me, so we learn at the speed that you are the most comfortable with.

All I expect from you is to bring a pencil, a good attitude, and the willingness to practice and work hard in our lessons, and I will supply the rest! Looking forward to hearing your beautiful music or voice!

About Natasha

I am a master teacher focusing on the classical repertoire along with the very strong approache to improvisation. I am really helping each single student to achieve their interests in music rather than focusing on teaching one particular method. I just take a very similar approach to the Suzuki method but instead of teaching out of the method books I teach mixture of exercises and pieces that I believe are more fun and accessible to today student of any age. Classes are tailored to the needs of any particular student and constantly evolving. I am a true believer that this also enchances an understanding and love of classical music.
A huge range of students come as beginners and left as a young artists as well as adult students
Who came to learn piano and have found that they can perform professionally. And plus have a great deal of Fu

n!
I also guide my students in the curriculum and exams of the Royal Conservatory program. Exams are offered twice a year. Also my students participating in Junior festivals and community recitals. I have also been a judge for Lake Central Junior festival which held in University of central Florida for over 8 years and an assistant for RC exams.
Creativity and love of music are the key elements that I encourage in every single student. With my teaching skills and over 20 years of experience I am taking each single student beyond their own expectation while helping them to achieve their own goals.

Bio: I am a professional pianist, teacher and composer. Because of my through knowledge and experience with music I can teach all ages and levels an array of important subjects including piano, music theory, , improvisation, composition, music history. My goal with every single student to incorporate all those subjects into my piano lessons so that every student gains a through understanding of music and become a well- rounded musician.

I started piano lessons when I was 7 years old and quickly felt in love with the instrument. In spite of studying a very structured program I quickly began to explore my creative side and was always improvising on the piano as well as enjoying playing classical pieces. Throughout my youth I entered and placed in a few competitions. I was also involved with the band chorus, dance and drama and attended lots of concerts,plays, operas, ballets. It gave me a well-rounded artistic upbringing.

I Persuaded my passione for music and graduated World renowned Moscow conservatory of music with Master’s degree in piano performance and teaching. My education tought me to understand piano in depth along with music theory and ear training. If you want to sit at the piano and play what you feel or to master every detail of a piece of music so you can express it exactly as composer intended? I can teach you. I completely encourage all ages and backgrounds to explore their musical passion and discover the endless possibilities of Piano!!!

About Ivelis

I am from Puerto Rico. I began to play flute since I have 11 years old until now. I graduated recently from Conservatorio de Musica de Puerto Rico with a Bachelors of Music, specifically flute, with great accomplished expectations of my professors.

Flute students can expect to improve week to week in their flute technique. I am giving flute classes since I was 13 years old! I would be with the student step by step until he/she improve. My way to teach has helped many students to go to levels that even they don't believed to reach, sometimes break with bad habits or fears when they play included. Also the feedback of my students has been satisfactory. Most of them tell me that they like how I connect everything I teach, like music theory, scales and flute studies in a practical way. I have had students for 1 or 2 years studying with me.



For Spanish students, I already born and raised in Puerto Rico, so my native language is Spanish. Even though, I decided to learn English and I discovered that there are people who wants to learn Spanish as well as I learned English for a variety of reasons: job positions, travel, meet people, etc. I am thankful for learn English, so why I will not help you to learn Spanish as well?

In general, every student is unique and deserve an unique class, so my classes are planned according to the level of the student, his/her goals and/or interest. So my first class include to know why you want to learn to play flute or to speak Spanish or why you want to improve it.

My personal passion is to play flute and help others to learn something that I could explain well and that it is new for them. I look forward to meeting you and help you until you become professional in the topic!

About Heyinn

I am probably one of the bubbliest people you'll ever meet.

I graduated from Georgia Tech with a Bachelors in Materials Science and Engineering. My desire to serve and promote progress shines through the most when there's a learning opportunity for both parties.

Fun fact: my mom is a traditional Korean instrumentalist (plus Korean fan dance)
She influenced me in creativity.

Korean language students can quickly access authentic learning materials. The pronunciation will be enhanced through my own technique called "scatting sound method". The method was developed from my own observation of the language and my love for teaching my friends Korean.

Dance is liberating if you can master a few movements to own for yourself. When I struggled with eating disorder, dance helped me cope with anxiety. Throughout college, I independently studied

a particular dance called waacking and k-pop. As a result, I have accumulated know-hows through experiment.

As a professional engineer, my goal is to help realize what it means to be efficient learner. If it takes a tweak in system, pedagogy, or communication to help you unlock for yourself a Korean tongue or a freestyle dance soul, I am here to hear your story and cooperate.

"Thầy Chau is one of the best instructors I’ve had in 27 years of government service. His patience, coupled with his superior methodology, create a unique
, productive, and highly enjoyable one-on-one atmosphere. He is extremely capable of preparing students for required examinations, using video, oral, written, and live interactive experiences with native speakers. Just as important, he provides the unique historical, cultural, geographic, and geopolitical aspects of Vietnam which infuse each lesson with rich discussion and dialogue. Thầy Chau is also very flexible, and will modify his instruction to meet the student’s specific personal or professional requirements. This includes creating new lessons from whole cloth if necessary. An exceptional instructor."
