Brett was an actor for 15 years and has taught private voice lessons for 20 years.

*** Lesson Details ***
The thing that makes me different from most voice teachers is that I approach everything from an acting stand point.

I believe singing is an extension of the voice when speaking is not enough. The student will explore the breathing process, impulse and intention, and a work out for the body (including some simple Yoga, Pilates, and voice and speech work).

I also believe in text, melodic, and accompaniment interpretation. By the time you are done with a song you will understand every secret of it so that you can act the heck out of it.

All this is to make the process of singing as alive, natural, and easy as possible.

I will also teach you warm-up exercises that are go while you are waiting to go into an audition.

I have an extensive library of musical theatre to build your book for any occasion or style you may need.

So come on over and look at music and your voice in a whole new light.
*** Specialties ***
Building an actor's book to help them with auditions. Will then teach the song and work with the singer on interpretation of music and lyrics.

Specialize in Musical Theatre, Jazz, Pop/Rock

Have an extensive knowledge of the business

Very large Musical Theatre library

Brett was very relatable and offered specific notes that were clear and easy to apply. By the end of the lesson, I had more tools to successfully tackle my next callback.

Brett's musical ear is unbelievable! He has such great musicality that truly allows me to entrust in his vocal input. He's been in the business a long time and knows what he's talking about. It also helps that he's a great guy and creates a warm teaching environment.

Brett is incredible. He helped me find a healthy sound while retaining the passion necessary to the Broadway style.

About Berthe

My name is Berthe ( pronounced Bert). At the age of 4, I began taking
piano lessons. By age 8, I was performing for the first time at the
Assembly Hall of the American University of Beirut. In 1978, I attended
the Faculty of Music of the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik/Lebanon,
where I completed a PhD. in music education and a higher diploma in
piano.
From 1982 to 2000, I taught piano, music theory, music education,
music appreciation, and the history of and analysis of Western music
at the University of the Holy Spirit of Kaslik (USEK), The University of St.
Joseph (USJ) and the Lebanese University (UL).
I recorded my first CD “Rehna Meshouar”, a collection of Lebanese
songs for children, intended to introduce music to kids. I took part in
many educational activities and devoted myself to the promotion of
musical educatio

n to the children. In 1995, I published my first book
“Do-Mi-Sol”, that focuses on a method specifically designed to teach kids
Solfege (oral theory and ear training).

From 1998 to 2001 I was in charge of training aspiring music teachers
at the Ecole Normale in piano, music education, psychology of music
education, and the philosophy of music education.
By the year 2000,I was appointed Director of Studies and the Academic
Secretary of the Music Faculty at the Holy Spirit University of Kaslik.
During my tenure, I employed teachers, advised students, and
developed artistic and academic programs. It was my responsibility to
organize studies and examinations, as well as plan, execute, organize studies and examinations, as well as plan and execute
concerts, conventions, and competitions. I have lectured all over Europe and the Middle East, as well as published many articles concerning music and music education.
Since moving to Florida in 2007, I am a professor of piano instruction at St. Petersburg College. I also give private lessons in my studio. I have served as a judge several times at the Bay Ridge Piano Festival.

*** Lesson Details ***
Our musical journey has a smooth and relaxed progression, establishing enough command of the keyboard to allow each student to develop naturally. To make the piano a richer and more rewarding experience, I enjoy introducing a variety of musical styles, from popular favorites to timeless classical pieces, according to the student’s musical tastes.

I believe in a dynamic and responsive method of teaching. I see the student as an active participant in their own learning. Our lesson feels pleasant and joyful, so the student will always delight in playing the piano and creating music. Based on the student’s age and demands, I employ several methods of teaching that lead to the development of observation, concentration, creativity, self-confidence, and personal expression. I encourage and support my students regardless of specific talent, as we move toward an effective and beneficial musical experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: baby grand piano, additional seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I teach Classical music to beginners and advanced students and follow the active method of teaching where the student is not just a receiver but participate in his own learning.

About Frankie

In addition to being a Berklee College of Music Graduate, I have a Masters in Music Education, and currently completing my Doctorate in Music Education from Boston University, I have been playing for over 30 years.

Lessons are written and tailored to you. I use music, printouts, and instructional material to make sure you progress as you should.

I have spots available every day of the week, so I'm confident that we can find something that works for both of us.

I know that learning to play any style of music whether it be Jazz, Blues, Soul, Motown, Funk, or Rock is a challenge, but with help from an experienced educator, your instrument becomes a rewarding lifelong enjoyment.

Please feel free to contact me. I would be happy to speak with you regarding any questions you may have.

About Rosie

I am an opera singer and voice teacher. I received my bachelors in vocal performance from Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where I taught secondary lessons through the conservatory. I have performed all over the United States and in England. I am currently studying at The Eastman School of Music as a master's student.
After graduation from Oberlin, I began my private studio in Texas. My weekly lessons numbered around 60. Over the last 4 years, I have taught students with a variety of interests and goals. It is important to me to find the one thing that excites my students, be that a certain song or style, or maybe how to be more comfortable singing in their church choir. In lessons, not only do we work on vocal technique, we focus on what makes their voice unique, special, and all their own. Students will always have a new building block t

o practice each week. My intention is to inspire my students to have a discerning ear and to appreciate all that goes into making a voice work.
My students have been accepted to major college voice programs, as well as participated in competitions and summer programs around the United States.

About Jarod

I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music with a dual major in Electronic Music Production & Sound Design, as well as Music Business. I actually learned from this site in the past and it taught me so much about music and production. I discovered the joy of giving back and teaching, and would love to pass on what I have learned from Berklee and my teachers outside of school to you. I specialize in contemporary production and engineering with an emphasis in making music that is practical and ready for radio. I can teach you all you need to know about audio engineering and production, as well as how to make your music relevant to the marketplace and heard. EDM music, hip-hop.rap, pop are my specialties, but I also can work outside of those genres. I have taught for about a year now before coming back to this site, so I am excited to meet n

ew students and pass on my knowledge.

In March of 2019, my career took off by signing my debut single to Black Hole Recordings. Since then, I have seen tremendous and continued success with my music and hope to help apply all that I have learned in the industry to my students as well.

My first session with Jarod was great! Lots of great information, very focused session, and great experience in a very well put together studio. Jarod was also very welcoming and open to conversing about personal manners that influence my music experience. Even after our first session, I feel much more confident in mixing practices which I had not before. Looking forward to our future meeting and I would highly recommend Jarod as an instructor for anyone looking to improve their knowledge and practices in regard to production and mixing/mastering!

I’ve worked with Jarod over the past few months, and I can unconditionally say that he’s the real deal. He has an excellent command of the entire music production process and how to navigate the music industry; not surprisingly he’s now a signed artist. Unlike a lot of instructors, Jarod is a naturally gifted mentor who actually takes time to figure out and plan out the best way forward. He is willing to share any insight and experience he has with his students. If you’re thinking about learning music production, Jarod is the perfect mentor to help you get to the next level.

"I was referred to Ahmad by a professional well versed in the music industry. I'm so thankful for the referral because I couldn't have asked for a better t
eacher! Not only does Ahmad know his instrument inside and out with the ability to articulate his knowledge into teaching, but he also knows about record production, marketing, and much more because she's a successful performing and recording artist himself. Looking forward to years of happy, fruitful guitar playing with help from Ahmad!"

"Surpassed Expectations

After working with Kelly for 3+ months, I feel I have spent enough time with her to give an assessment. Prior to seeing Kelly I ha
d absolutely zero training in singing. I am an improv performer and wanted to develop my singing voice to a point where I would feel comfortable enough to use it on stage. I have truly been astonished with the progress we have made over the last few months. Each week I leave Kelly's home studio feeling like we made a major breakthrough. Probably the best part of Kelly's teaching style is that she is focused on my goals and structures the lessons in a way that allows me to learn best. Kelly provides feedback constantly throughout the lessons, and I always feel like we are maximizing the time we spend together. Even though it has only been a few months, I am much more comfortable with my singing voice and now view it as an asset, as opposed to something that is holding me back. Could not have asked for a better teacher."

"Fanstastic teacher for my 7-year-old little drummer!

We originally chose Jesse because we found out he could teach just about any instrument and my 7-yea
r-old son wasn't sure about what he wanted to play. On the first class he tried the drums, and he never wanted to let it go. My son is a particularly challenging student because he is highly distractible, and Jesse was extremely patient and very organized/methodic with him, and therefore able to keep him on track. My husband plays in a band, and we both think Jesse is a super talented teacher who offers lessons with a great balance between fun and actual learning of good musical habits. In less that a month my son was feeling confident enough to play in front of the camera and send family members video samples of his new drummer self! We couldn't be happier."

"A Wonderful Teacher!

Jessie is an incredible person to work with. I went in looking to work on my range and songs for musical theatre and came out with a
better understanding of technique and intonation. She is always patient and understanding of her students and is always willing to help them any way she can. She helped me pick songs for my auditions and also informed me about other auditions in the area. I also learned basic piano from her awesome piano worksheet tutorials! Jessie not only is a great instructor, but a great performer as well . Although her voice is beautiful, she doesn't make me feel inadequate or intimidated. Her lessons are always fun to me because of her sense of humour and kindness. Overall, I've had a great experience with Jessie and can't wait to see her again!"
