View Full Profile

I have been teaching piano, voice, guitar, and songwriting for over 10 years, and my students have gotten into music schools such as Berklee College of Music and Celia Cruz Music High School in the Bronx. Other accomplishments include wonderful performances, even from the shyest students, at Summer and Winter Recitals, building bands and performing regularly, being cast in Cirque du Soleil and off-Broadway shows, and becoming teachers themselves.
Within the first lesson you be will playing/singing and reading music, and as times goes by you will be able to choose your favorite songs to learn and perform. I specialize in several styles of piano (jazz, improvisation, classical), guitar (fingerpicking, acoustic), singing (all genres), and songwriting (jazz, contemporary). I offer recording sessions anytime during our lessons, which is extremely helpful for singing and songwriting students.
I don’t use one set of books – I tailor our lesson goals and needs to every student. Not every ...

About Katrina
Hello! I am a graduate of Berklee College of Music, with a Bachelor’s degree in Writing and Production as well as a graduate of NYU Steinhardt with a Master's Degree in Music Technology. I have been teaching privately for over ten years, and performing for over 20!

I have begun teaching full time as of 2014, because I love teaching so much! I am driven by watching my students build confidence and learn to express themselves through music. My goal is for each student to become more expressive and build a love of music while also learning the theory behind it and performance techniques.

My first love is piano, as I began lessons at age 7. I wrote my first song at age 8 and started playing guitar the next year. I am an accomplished songwriter, arranger, producer, performer, teacher and director. I have directed all ages and group size
s in music as musical theatre director, musical director at church, band leader, and a children's music teacher. I love teaching and excel at finding unique ways to teach music and keep it interesting. I want you to have fun and learn what you find most interesting so we will work together to reach your goals.

Along with instrument and vocal lessons, I offer tutoring in all subjects of music and songwriting, and specialize in offering lessons tailored to each student’s needs. I refuse to hand out a book and go from front to back - expect handouts, impromptu lesson material to help you learn any specific concept you may be struggling with, CD’s with study material, exploratory homework, and thinking outside the box! We will do whatever it takes to get you wherever you want to be.

*** Lesson Details ***
I focus my curriculum on the goals of each student, their needs and their abilities. Everyone is different, so every student should have a different set of goals and a unique curriculum to reach them! I want to offer the most well-rounded education possible, so we will be regularly evaluating your goals and the materials you are using to reach them. I am easy-going and realistic - if you aren't interested in what you are learning then you aren't going to practice. So lets have some fun!

I work with every age group and integrate the following into all lessons: Piano, Guitar, Voice, Drums

• coordination
• rhythm - sometimes we will use our hands or bodies, or the drums or tambourine
• contemporary styles and songs - all my students get to choose their songs from my music library or their own!
• ear training - I help students to hear major and minor as well as the different notes of a chord. My singers work with solfege (do re mi) to gain early sight-reading skills
• singing together on simple songs - especially for young students to put them at ease and express themselves through music with something they already know (aka Twinkle Twinkle)
• scale work - I start my student young with the C scale and progress as each student can handle
• music theory - you won't even know you are learning it! My extensive training in this area allows me to find simple ways to teach these skills
• Performance technique: my voice students get to sing with a microphone and PA system to their favorite karaoke tunes and learn performance aspects. I also work with piano, guitar, and drums on performance skills.
• SONGWRITING: optional. I like to spend a class time every several sessions to help my creative students write their own song from start to finish! We can even record it if you like!

I work with several instruments in order to help my students get the most well-rounded music education they can until they choose a specific direction of their own (such as classical piano or acoustic guitar).

If you would like to focus only on one area, that is never a problem! I simply offer a variety of music lessons so that I can tailor the lesson to each student's goals. I will work with you to create a lesson plan.

Recitals are offered each Summer and Winter.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio: KORG weighted 88 key keyboard, acoustic and electric guitar and amp, PA system for performance in vocals, microphones. Parents may sit in on lessons or wait nearby. There is a library across the street, as well as a Dunkin Donuts.

For recording and production lessons, I use industry standards such as Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and Sonic. I give out weekly handouts and tailored homework assignments in most subjects. I can purchase books for students, or they can acquire the recommended books on their own.

*** Specialties ***
Young children music and piano 4 years and up; Piano; Voice - beginner and advanced; Musicality: can't decide what to study? I can work with you in a variety of areas including rhythm, percussion, songwriting, piano, guitar, singing, improvising, etc.

I have a M.M. in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

About Benjamin
I have extensively studied vocal performance for many years and continue to add to my own technique. I have a Master of Vocal Performance Degree from the Chicago College of Performing Arts. I currently work for a recording studio (Sound Summit Studios in Naperville IL) where I teach voice and help singers record their music in the studio. I have previously taught at The School of Rock in Indianapolis Indiana. I have administered vocal lessons to every voice type at all different levels. Several of my students have recored albums and are currently performing all over the U.S.

I have a bachelors degree in biology with a minor in art. After graduating college, I was a full-time high school biology teacher, volleyball coach, and director of the school musical. As a high school teacher, I learned first hand the kind of pressure and expectat
ions that are placed on students in order for them to succeed. In college, I was the head student researcher on a two-year lab project. I took several upper level science courses including: biochemistry, calculus, organic chemistry, calculus based physics, cell biology, anatomy, and physiology. I studied marine biology in the Virgin Islands and am CPR certified.

*** Lesson Details ***
Voice lessons with me are fun and effective. You can expect to hear improved technique from day one, eventually reaching your long term goals. I begin every lesson aligning the students voice through various vocal warm ups and exercises. We then work together to pick repertoire that will suit the singer'€™s voice and they will enjoy singing. During a lesson we will also cover performance presentation, acting, diction, rhythm, musicality, style, and interpretation.

During tutoring you can expect a personalized plan based on your goals and aspirations. Since every student is different you can be assured we will come up with a plan that is designed just for you. I am a laid back tutor but will be sure to get the most out of you after our time together. Most students see at least a one letter grade improvement. My main goal for every tutoring session is student learning and comprehension.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, recording equipment, large collection of sheet music

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping students find their true singing voice.

First, I had some previous singing lesson but did not really get to sing properly and my throat was always straining. Benjamin took me from the basic with breathing and how to correctly lean on the air. It took a little time, and now i feel so comfortable when I sing. My vocal resonance and control has really improved. I do not sing with my throat no more, I feel effortless and I control my intercoastal muscles very well. Benjamin is really Great, Patient and Understanding instructor. He has made to start loving and accepting my voice.
I strongly recommend him to anyone who wants to learn the freedom of singing and how good it feels to sing your favorite songs at ease.

I have been literally to 4 youtube teachers and though I have nothing bad to say about any of them, i know that I need a long term teacher that I can see myself growing with as a singer. Our personalities just meshed. She knows how to make one feel comfortable. She is very encouraging to students with zero self confidence like me. I think I have found the teacher I’ve been looking for in Elena! i’m excited to see what she can do to transform my voice. Her resume as well as her reviews( students spoke highly of her character) are what stood out for me out of thousands of teachers online! It is also important that I love to listen to my teacher’s voice and i love her voice😊

I teach classical techniques for voice which can be used in all styles of singing.

About Kristen
I am a classically trained vocalist and pianist.
I graduated from the University of South Dakota with Masters in Vocal Performance. I also have a Master of Arts in Church Music from Trinity Lutheran Seminary at Capital University.

When I started voice lessons in high school I started at the very bottom. I am a better teacher for having to start at the very beginning.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 13 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classi
cal excellence.

Hello there!

So you want to sing?! Great!

No matter whether you wish to sing Pop, Rock, Opera, Country, Blue, R&B, Gospel, Contemporary Christian, Classical, musical theatre etc it is important to have a reliable TECHNIQUE that you develop over time.

I spent almost 4 years studying Vocal Performance in University and graduated early with high honors. I can teach you what I learned and what I had to figure out on my own to develop the technique which recently landed me a role in an Emmy-winning tour.

If you're ready to do the work necessary to sing well, hit me up!

Make a great day!

About Francois
Hello again!

Singing is about passion. It is about engaging the spirit of a work or a song and finding what that means for you. Maybe you're just starting out in your journey and want to develop a reliable technique. Maybe you sing every so often but you want to get serious. Maybe you'd like your child to get that role, that solo, or simply have them develop into a professional singer. Maybe you want to sing solos in your faith group, friend's wedding, karaoke, or just want to pursue a passion!

If so, you've come to the right place.

I can teach you the basics of singing which lie in breathing and supporting the breath as it escapes your body in the making of sounds in the form of words.

The technical side is important but so is the expressive side. It is important to tell a story when you sing and be convinced of that story yourself.
That is why I encourage people to sing songs that mean something to you.

If you would like to refine your technique, develop the technique, or just add to your ability to sing, then do contact me and let's set up a lesson to see how I can help your voice soar!

Make a great day and hope to hear from you soon!

François

In two semesters of his studio, we had broken down a handful of bad vocal habits of mine, and were well on our way of building my voice back up. He is also very attentive to helping his students build skills to correct themselves during their practicing.
