Come prepare for next show/performance. Two recitals per year. All styles welcome and enhanced.Broadway Vocal Training and strengthening.

About Laura
I teach voice, piano and guitar. My Music Degree from Point Loma Nazarene University is in Vocal Performance. I love what I do. I teach children through adults. I have lots of experience in worship
leading for church if that is of interest.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy-going, but I expect you to practice. I am thorough in my approach. For piano lessons, I utilize the Alfred method. I emphasize note reading and theory in each genre, whether taking guitar, voice or piano. I am currently using Hal Leonard's Guitar Method books for guitar and a few different things for vocal curriculum. All lessons can be supplemented with what you are currently interested in or working towards. I enjoy helping prepare young people for their performances in theatre arts. Lessons can be combined, for example; if you are interested in both voice and
guitar, you can take a longer weekly lesson and have both subjects covered! Weekly assignments are given and checked to see if done before proceeding to the next step! I do not recommend students come every other week. I recommend one lesson per week.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar and books. Student provides their guitar during lesson and for piano, must have a piano or keyboard at home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping young worship leaders hone their gifts. I enjoy preparing people for their musical theatre performances.

Mechanicsville, VA

I have been singing since I was four years old. I have been trained in classical, gospel, show choir, musical theater.

I've led choirs or all ages, children's and teen musical productions.

I developed vocal chord nodules in 2006 and had to learn to sing and speak all over again. So, I'm passionate about teaching students how to sing CORRECTLY and building their confidence and stage presence.

About Dana
Hi. My name is Dana B. I have a passion for teaching students how to read music, understand basic theory and even choose some of your own music without feeling the frustrating pressure that is often associated with music lessons. I teach a foundation of piano method, technique and theory, using classics with a good mix of fun and contemporary music thrown in! I also teach voice and performance.

I was formally trained in piano for over 10 years by a teacher from the National Guild of Piano Teachers and I have been playing for more than 30 years. I have extensive professional and volunteer experience teaching children/youth of all ages. Time slots are available both after school hours and during the school day for home-schoolers.

I would love to share my knowledge and enthusiasm about music with you and your child!

I have been a private voice teacher for the last 15 years. My students have studied with me in person, and through Skype. I provide personalized lesson plans that focus on warm ups, repertoire selection, and audition preparation. My students have landed roles in major musicals all over the country, including on Broadway and in Hollywood (Shrek, Annie). I have also trained students to perform at Disney World, Carnegie Hall, and Royal Caribbean. I'm excited to take your voice to the next level.

About Amanda
I have been a professional performance coach for the last 15 years. I have trained students ages 3-16 to find their true vocal, acting and musical potential. I provide a very personalized lesson plan for each student, with appropriate warm ups, expert repertoire selection from both current and classic Broadway Shows, and handpicked audition cuts. I trained as an educator of theater with Kids On Stage in Los Angeles after receiving my BA in Musical Theater. With the Atlanta School of the Performing Arts, I mentored children ages 3-16 in their performances at Walt Disney World, Carnegie Hall in New York, and the Bahamas on Royal Caribbean. My students have landed lead roles in musicals like Annie and Shrek. My husband and I run the performance company, K&A Theatricals, which is committed to producing cabarets, musicals, and cutting edge dra
mas. We share the stage with our students and give them the chance to shine with us and learn from us how to be professional performers.

My students have gone on to Broadway and enjoyed careers on TV. One of my students just starred as Matilda in the National Tour.

I will help you find your sound whether its classical, broadway as well as contemporary music.

About Tonya
Hi, there! My name is Antonina and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons for over 10 years and although I help foster technically advanced students, I mostly pride myself on the fact that I help students fall into a lifelong love with music! Although with time students tend to lose their interest due to the self-discipline required to succeed at playing an instrument, I make sure to offer a fresh, inspirational, and engaging approach to my lessons. I introduce many different styles, performance skills, composition, and most importantly the ability for self-expression through music. I have been playing, teaching, and performing my entire life and have a huge passion to share the gift of music!

Miami, FL

View Full Profile

I emphasize a vocal technique rooted in the classical tradition, because it provides an excellent foundation for any style the student is interested in singing.

I have had significant formal musical training, as well as years of experience working as a singer and teacher. I have performed and taught in a variety of styles, including opera, classical, pop, folk, and musical theater.

Learning to use proper breath support, resonance, and clarity of tone are all important aspects of singing, regardless of the style being sung. I typically use individually tailored vocal exercises to teach technical details at the beginning of the lesson. We also work on specific repertoire choices aimed at improving those newfound technical skills.

About Ana
Hey there! The first thing I want to tell you about studying with me is that my highest priority is making it fun. I’ve found that cultivating the student’s genuine interest and enjoyment of the music learning process is the biggest contributor to progress.

In the first lesson, communication is very important to me. I want to find out what you love about music, so that we can build skills which directly contribute to your musical passions. My approach with a new student involves discussing what they are hoping to get out of taking lessons. Together, we come up with a series of goals that we will work towards achieving during our sessions. I believe in tailoring the lesson to each individual student- there is no one size fits all method to learning!

I welcome students of all skill levels and ages, including complete beginners!

I can provide repertoire for you, and I also am open to working on pieces that you are interested in learning.

1. Zack guarantees progress in these 5 concepts of singing:
-range (how high and low a vocalist can sing)
-power (how impactful a vocalist can sound while maintaining healthy and sustainable technique)
-stamina (how long a vocalist can sing with tiring or fatiguing AND ho long a vocalist can hold an individual note/phrase out without taking a breath)
-freedom (removing detrimental tension and strain from the voice and body)
-artistry (a vocalist's ability to effectively and authentically sing in any genre)

2. Zack uses a professional recording studio to enhance/monitor student progress and gives student's fully mastered/mixed recordings of the songs they work on in lessons!

"I believe anyone can sing; they just need to given the tools to succeed"

About Zack
Zack , the founder of TVIS (a vocal studio in Central Florida) has had a lifelong dream of sharing his passion for music with everyone he meets. Zack has been teaching music and voice lessons for over 9 years. He was a triple music major while obtaining his bachelor’s degree from Belmont University in Nashville, TN.

Zack is a published choral composer with the company Colla Voce, and has per
formed in Nashville and Central Florida, putting together both solo and group performances. He plans to continue his learning in music in order to give others seeking musical endeavors the tools they need to succeed!

Although I specialize in training for classical voice I am most interested in teaching people to sing with a technique that will serve them well no matter what kind of singing they want to do.

The most important part of any style of singing is how you support your voice to make it easy to sing, which is all about how you use your breath. The vocal training is all about keeping the voice unused.

I will concentrate on two things, breath support and placement, to make your singing efficient. This is not easy, but it is doable, and best of all once you've got it, you've got it.

I sang professionally in German Opera houses for 20 plus years as a leading tenor soloist, doing a good portion of the repertoire for comic, lyric, and dramatic vocal categories.

I have a Bachelor's of Music Education from Western Kentucky University, a
Master of Music Degree from the Eastman School of Music, was a member of the AGMA Opera Artist Program at the Chautauqua Opera, a member of the ...

About John T (Timothy)
The name I am known by is Timothy.
I am excited to start teaching students who want to learn how to sing the right way. No matter what kind of music you want to perform, having great breath support can keep you vocally healthy for your entire life.

I have studied voice myself for over 30 years. As a professional I have performed opera, musicals, operetta and in concert in Europe, primarily in German Opera houses as a lead tenor in every category.

I speak fluent German, I have a good performance knowledge of Italian, French and Latin and have also sung in Russian and Hungarian.

My voice teachers were themselves professional opera singers in the real world and I have learned so much from all of them. I have obviously also sung with some of the best singers in the world in every voice category and understand what it takes to si
ng well.

My ex-wife worked in Musicals as a keyboardist and conductor in Germany and on Broadway with Disney's Beauty and the Beast and also Miss Saigon. I spent a lot of time around this world and have learned a lot about musical singing from them.

Still, the best of them possessed classical training which helped them have long careers.

However, if you want to study for enjoyment and personal development, then I am willing to work with you as well. Love for music, the voice and singing is what binds us, not whether you want to do opera.

However, I would like to encourage those who especially want to study with me for the professional world to work with me. I'm pretty sure I can help you.

I am uncomplicated and fun to work with, but I am nicely honest and will do everything I can to help you have a wonderful experience singing.

Looking forward to working with you!
