I want to help you find your voice and express yourself -- to SHINE and have a lot of fun in the process! I'd like to pass along some of my expertise and knowledge to you. I've been a performing vocalist all my life, with formal training beginning in high school, continuing into college and into my career as a professional musician. I have "stage" experience (choral, broadway musicals, opera) AND experience in the "band" arena, performing vocals and/or bass guitar and guitar for rock, pop, R&B and jazz gigs.

About Robert
Hey there! I've been performing music for as long as I can remember, and performing professionally for over 30 years. I have formal training and 12 years of teaching experience. I teach with positivity, patience, and perseverance and help you express the music in you!

*** Lesson Details ***
All of my lessons are customized to your needs, preferences and goals. No matter what instrument or skill level, I'll take you through the basics and help you build solid practicing fundamentals. I'll also help you develop your performance and, depending on how serious you'd like to get, I can also teach you to read music and learn music theory as well! I balance learning and technical skill with fun and self-expression.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a dedicated music room, stocked with guitars, basses, and practice amp, keyboard and co
mputers with recording software.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Keyboard, practice amp, and/or instrument cords. I expect the student to provide his/her own instrument, and prefer they have an amplifier for electric instruments.

*** Specialties ***
I teach in all genres, but have experience in rock, alternative, pop, jazz, and even music theater.

He is a very patient teacher. And he's very flexible on his schedule by moving our schedule to an earlier time because we had a prior engagement in the afternoon. And most of all, my daughter now knows the basics and we will most likely contact him again in case we decide to continue guitar lessons.

Would you like to be able to sing what you see on a page of printed music? Do you wish you could learn your harmony part without needing someone to plunk it out on the keyboard first? As a school music teacher I have helped many students learn to sightsing. In the process I can also help you improve your basic vocal technique.

About Edna
Welcome to my Music Studio where you can begin a life long musical journey. I look forward to guiding you or your child wherever you may be on the path to making and loving music.

Keith is fantastic! He expects the highest level of preparation and performance from me at all my lessons and thus pushes me to be a better performer every time. He tailors my lessons to exactly what I need - specific work for upcoming auditions as well as more general work to expand my repertoire. His lessons are also not not limited singing coaching - he also provides coaching in acting and movement. I feel like I have presented some of my best work to auditors as a result of working with Keith! And he does all this in the friendliest manner possible so that my lessons are always a great combination of fun, hard work, and inspiration.

Keith is a knowledgeable and great teacher. He will let you feel comfortable at singing and doing all the practices and make you realize what the correct postures and things needed to make you feel confident. Also, he is pretty easy-going with scheduling and just let him know in advance and he will reschedule the class for you. Definitely recommended.

My voice has significantly improved after lessons with Hannah. My tone and pitch have also improved dramatically. If you are interested in writing songs, Hannah is also a great teacher for that. I have written many songs since taking lessons from her. You don't even have to leave your home because Hannah can teach skype lessons. Many people don't like Skype lessons because they seem impersonal. I recommend trying a free lesson. You will see that Hannah makes it seem like she's there in person. I live in the country so this has been very convenient. I love her teaching style. She has empowered me to create many beautiful songs. She is very well qualified and knows what she's talking about.

When I think about singing, I think about flow. The voice should be able to move without any inhibitions. I strive to sing in this way and to teach my students how to achieve to sing this way. My technique involves vocal warm ups that will help loosen your voice, your body and your mind. I also find that expression is very important in music. We will go into every song searching for the right emotions to convey not just for the song, but for yourself. With every lesson you will find it easier to correct yourself during your practicing and end up falling in love with making music.

My lessons are productive, intuitive, and fun! My goal is to take the best qualities of your voice and incorporate them into your entire range. My method of teaching is to build upon that which is known and apply it to the unknown in the singing voice. My method is custom built for your unique voice. Above all, I want my students to feel comfortable and confident in my lessons. I have two degrees in Vocal Performance: a Bachelor's from Florida State University and a Master's from Ohio State University.

About Samuel
I am an opera singer currently pursuing a Professional Studies Certificate at the Manhattan School of Music in New York City. I have sung with Opera Columbus, Opera Project Columbus, Ohio State University Opera and Lyric Theatre, Opera in the Ozarks, The Sankt Goar International Music Festival, and Florida State Opera. This August, I will be singing in a production of Mozart's The Magic Flute at the National Opera Center.

At Opera Columbus, I sang in the “Opera for the Young” version of Jules Massenet’s Cinderella in which I played Prince Charming. This version was in English and was toured to underprivileged schools all throughout the central Ohio area. It was an eye-opening and rewarding experience. I am passionate about Opera and sharing that passion with the next generation will aid in their appreciation of music and culture.


I am comfortable teaching many styles of music and singing, namely opera, music theatre, country, and gospel. I will fine-tune your voice to fit the style of singing. After all, technique only exists to serve the style of the music in a healthy and beautiful manner. I grew up on these types of music and I understand the vocal demands of each one of them very well. I sing them all the time!

I am an experienced singer and I know the voice well. I understand its potential and its limitations. If you take lessons with me I will not only improve your voice, but I will also improve your vocal intuition. I will give you the tools to self-diagnose your vocal problems with good technique. I understand that learning how to sing with good technique can be a difficult process, but I have had many teachers and perspectives on teaching voice. With this, I can teach you to sing in a way that you will understand and find fulfilling.
