About Rob
I have been teaching on and off for about 25 years. as my recording career permits. For the past 8 years or so, steady in my home studio. My teaching style is based on years of experience and influences. I have combined approaches of teaching styles and knowledge from some of the top Jazz guitarists in the world to create my own method. I combine the technique of Blues, Rock, & Jazz with ear training, helping a student to easilly recognizing chord changes in order to learn songs off a recording, instead of just copying other guitarists. Students gain the understanding of what they're playing in order to also be creative. Not only is this great for the beginner but anyone who is interested in going to music college or embarking on a professional music career. I love to see look on their faces, and the progress of students as they get bette
r and better. It brings them such joy! They all say to me, "Why don't they teach it this way?"

I've been working with Rob for the last two years and my playing is really taking in a way I never anticipated. I first met him in a guitar store and listened to him play lines at blazing speed; and then I asked him to play me that exact line again note for note. He did; and I knew there was comprehension.
His system is very easy to follow but takes work. Hard Work! But it is more than rewarding and gives you the fundamentals to find your own style. I am still working on that style piece but he has taken me away from any of the plateaus and prisons untrained players find themselves in. Highly recommend him!

About Abigail
A passionate educator and Suzuki trained teacher, I teach individual and group classes with Suzuki Strings of Austin, violin and viola students at Bedichek Middle School, and run a private violin and viola home studio in Austin and online.

In violin lessons with me, you can expect the focus to go far beyond the technical aspects of the violin, encouraging each student to flourish and reach their full potential. I believe that every student has the ability, drive, and capacity to succeed at, love, and learn from the violin. Whether you're an adult new to the instrument, a young child trying out music lessons for the first time, or an older student returning to the instrument after a few years off, violin lessons will serve as a meaningful musical outlet, a way to discover self-directed learning, and a way to engage with an entire commun
ity of musicians.

About Shannon
Hello all you musically inclined people!

Thanks for stopping by!

I offer two kinds of singing classes: A) Singing Yoga and B) Classical Training (with focuses in jazz, musical theater, pop/rock/indie).

For those who are interested in the singing yoga course, just click on the link above that says "yoga".

For those interested in traditional vocal instruction, read below:

1) I STRIVE TO CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT THAT CATERS TO YOUR LEARNING EXPERIENCE. I know firsthand as both a student and a teacher that no two learners absorb information the same way. Therefore, during the lessons, I will pay attention to your unique learning style and craft my instruction around that.

2) I'M GOING TO ASK YOU QUESTIONS. I don't mean to put you on the spot and I don't expect you to know the answers right off the bat, but I ask because I'm c
urious to see what you think the answer might be or what you already know. And of course, I'll tell you the answer after anyway.

3) I WANT YOU TO ASK ME QUESTIONS. I especially stress this with my younger students. Don't be afraid to ask me questions. It's good to have a curiosity about music or to ask something if you didn't understand when I explained it the first time.

4) I CAN ONLY TAKE YOU SO FAR, YOU HAVE TO MEET ME HALFWAY. While professional vocal instruction is unarguably extremely valuable, it's not enough. I will coach you and provide feedback as well as equip you with a comprehensive music education and vocal techniques, but you will still have work to do during the time in between our lessons. I will expect you to do the vocal warm ups and various exercises I give you on a daily basis. The golden ticket to becoming a polished singer is to keep up with it every day just like you would with any other skill.

5) THERE IS NO QUICK WAY ABOUT DOING THIS. I have had LOTS of potential students contact me asking how long it will take to become a good singer. I'll let you in on a secret: Celine Dion still takes singing lessons. Even the most seasoned singers in the world never end their vocal instruction. So you can take lessons for as long or as little as you would like, but if you are really dedicated to becoming better, you never stop learning how to become better.

6) I'M GOING TO PUSH YOU OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE. It's natural for humans to place mental limitations on themselves. During lessons, I will ask you to do things you don't think you can or might feel too embarrassed to try. Learning how to sing is a confidence-building experience. I will remind you that I have been in the same boat as you and it just takes time and trying to conquer fears and become a strong singer.

7) YOU ARE GOING TO LEARN EVERY DIFFERENT COMPONENT OF VOCAL INSTRUCTION. We will cover the following: music warm ups, breathing exercises, physical warm ups, repertoire building, stylization, performance, technique, and music theory. My goal is to make you fluent in the language of music.

8) I'M EASY-GOING: I feel it is only fair that I warn you about my sense of humor (I try to infuse it into everything I do...keep life light and humorous :) ). I never make fun of my students, but I'm a pro at making fun of myself. My point is, I encourage you to laugh off mistakes. Be prepared for those. Your voice will crack, you'll hit a note wrong....you're just going to royally mess up. Don't worry about it. These lessons are a judgment free zone and I try to infuse humor into them. Besides, you have to mess up to get better anyway.

So shoot me a message! I can't wait to get stated with you!!

About Richard
I started learning how to play the guitar around 15 years old. I have over 36 years experience. I took lessons for three years of reading, writing tab and notations, chord charts, melodies, classical guitar, soloing, taping, techniques, song learning, ear training and transposing. From the songs, I've learned to play the rhythm and solo. Over the years, I self taught myself guitar by listening to my favorite artist. I played in local bands for many years and performed in venue's in my home town. When I play in bands, I'm always labeled the lead guitar player of the group. I would help everyone out with their parts and timing. I have recording experience in the studio as much as my home studio using Steinburg's Cubase. I took a music theory course and received a certificate.

My time with Rich was really strong. I took lessons from Rich for a short while when living in Connecticut. The time I spent with him was VERY helpful to me as a novice guitar player. Rich has an unbelievable knowledge of the instrument and is quite an accomplished player. He is a really strong instructor and genuinely wants his students to get better.

In short, Rich is a very talented instructor/player and I would definitely take lessons from him again.

About Coltyn
If you’re searching for a professional Music Teacher and Performer who can give you the personalized attention you deserve, look no further! I’m an experienced and knowledgeable teacher of singing lessons with a degree in voice education and state certification to teach music. I've been offering my instructive services since 2016 to clients in the greater Milwaukee area. I can help you unlock your full vocal potential by providing the technical guidance and fundamental skills you need in order to succeed.

My lessons focus on controlling the voice. For beginning students I teach the basics of posture and breathing that will lead to a healthy control of not only the voice, but the whole body. As we continue I move onto learning different individual skills based upon what the students needs most. Some of the most common goals of my studen
ts that I address are learning to sing with more volume without needing a substantial amount of effort, extending the range, and eliminating habits that can cause permanent damage later in life. For my more advanced students or those looking to sing a variety of styles I teach how to alter the voice subtly such that a student could sing drastically different songs with quality.
