She has taught students from various backgrounds. Music is my passion because it is international communication. It ministers to my soul and spirit.

Justin is a brilliant piano teacher. He is very engaging in his lessons and you can always be sure to learn and improve. Justin is flexible to both what you know and what you need improvement on and will quickly stretch to fortify your musical ability. He is never without a smile and never negatively criticizes.

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.

About Abby
Due to my maternal grandfather's work as a Chicago vaudeville orchestra leader, from early childhood, the performing arts have been in my blood. Starting to study classical flute at age 12, then playing in the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestras and taking professional jazz/classical flute workshops/master classes, I've been teaching and playing all styles of music professionally since my 20's.

Vocal study began at age 15 with some great artists/educators in SF, Seattle, and Europe, including Bobby McFerrin, Mark Murphy, Adrian West from NYC Broadway, David Tigner- SF Opera, Davida Kagan-Seattle Opera, and Roland Wyatt-
Manhattan Transfer coach /NY Academy of Dramatic Arts. Through many teaching years, I've developed a very successful, uniquely simple 8 part method to help cross cultural individuals and groups sing optimally from thei
r hearts. For all levels from beginners to professional. the necessary basic vocal techniques can be taught effectively in 4 to 8 lessons, though the process of becoming a successful artist continues during one's lifetime.

With a BA in Theater Arts from SFSU, and over 50 years directing, acting, and musical experience, including 15 years working successfully as an ESL educator, my experience has allowed me to help any student achieve their personal and/or professional goals.

She is not only a real teacher in English, but also in life.

About Emily
Hi ! Welcome to my profile!! Here's a bit about me: I'm a classically trained opera singer with a Bachelor and Masters degree in vocal performance. I'm recently relocated to the Dayton area from Chicago. In Chicago I performed with various opera companies including the Floating Opera Company and the Gilbert and Sullivan opera company. I attended grad school at Depaul University where I had the opportunity to be a soloist in The Fairy Queen, L'Orfeo and The Queen of the night in Mozart's Magic Flute. Outside of Depaul I was selected as a soloist for The Messiah as well as a competition finalist for the Sinfonietta Bel Canto Competition. Most recently I played the Five Year Old in Milton Granger's The Proposal and Top Bottom in The Quantum Mechanic. I would love to teach you lessons in classical singing or provide audition prep for those
needing help for college or grad school auditions! I would also love to chat with anyone about next steps for employment in the performance world!
In addition to Voice lessons I teach violin as well. I have studied violin since the age of 10 and played all the way through college. I learned through a mix of Suzuki and Essential Elements technique books. I would love to help beginners and intermediate students develop their skills further as a violinist!

About Kimberly
If you cannot find an available time on my calendar that fits your schedule, please click the "ask Kimberly a question" button above with days and times that work for you.

I am a trained actress in my late 20's. I have experience coaching many professional working actors. I have worked on audition sides for TV (Law & Order, Narcos, Disney, etc), independent films, big budget studio films, web series, off broadway plays, off off broadway plays, monologues, and anything in between with my students! I teach both comedic & dramatic acting and stand up comedy.

I have been trained by exceptional teachers in the following: Linklater (voice), Williamson (movement), film/tv & theater, script analysis, theater & film history, cold reading, monologue, stand-up comedy, etc. I have also been mentored by the legendary standup comedian Rick Crom.


I can also work with the actor on the business aspect of acting, which is very important to your acting career: how can I get the best headshot?, what things should I be doing everyday to reach my acting goals (some may not even be acting!)?, how do I get in front of this specific casting director?, what events/workshops should I be attending?, etc. We can go over all that plus how to get through personal blocks, fear-related patterns, and other things that may be holding you back from being the best artist you can be!

I believe training is so important to a working actor & comedian so congrats on taking the first step towards a successful, exciting career! I can't wait to share my love of acting and comedy with you!

I have a self tape set-up with a backdrop, professional lighting & tripod. I am happy to be your reader & coach as we film your audition, scene or stand up set. We can use this as a tool to improve or film a self tape audition. We can also chose your best take together.

About Hayley
Hello! I am about to go into my senior year at Miami University as a Music Major with a focus on vocal and general music education. I have been trained in singing for almost 8 years now and have experience with music theatre, opera, classical voice, and choral performing. I can help students with a variety of goals to performing/ auditioning or music theory, aural skills, and music reading. I have worked with all ages from kindergarten to adult and will gladly work with any age! This past year I had several vocal students and even helped one prepare and audition for the voice department at Miami and they were admitted. In the past few years I have had multiple teaching opportunities through music education courses and also at a local church.
My focus for students is to encourage musical and performance excellence: proper singing t
echniques, learning to read music, and creating characters for repertoire. My approach to teaching voice is different for every student and what they need. But I will challenge every student to always do their best and improve after each and every lesson.
I will NEVER give up on any student!

I was a student of Hayley's during my first semester in college at Miami University. Hayley consistently paid great attention to detail and helped me to improve in any way possible. She truly cared about my development and sought to bring out my best through both instruction and encouragement. Hayley seems to have an excellent handle on elements of vocal technique and teaches them in a way that is easily understandable by music majors and non-music majors alike.

Hello!
My name is Malaki, and my passion is aerial fabric!

I was a competitive gymnast for eight years before I trained and taught with Circus Mojo and gained more skill through learning on my own volition with the Rebecca Leach book series.

I continued my education by performing with the Cincinnati Circus for three years and doubled the number of students during my time instructing in their aerial fabric program.

I have also dedicated my life to seeking out new knowledge to share through various coaching experiences in Actor's Gymnasium in Chicago, IL; Elevated Arts in Bloomington, IN; and with Bella Florza in Lexington, KY.

See you on the silks!
