About Christian
Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from taking years of private lessons with a number of teachers I also studied music and audio engineering in college. I'm constantly learning more. I keep my chops up by practicing and reading books by other professionals and songwriters. So, I have an arsenal of books and musical knowledge. When I'm not teaching I spend most of my time writing and recording my original solo music. I have a rock band that I've been playing with for over a decade. We are currently in the studio recording our first professional album.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a ver
y patient teacher. I understand that not everyone learns the same way so I specialize in breaking things down and making music as simple as it can be for each kind of student. I don't use just one method, I pull from my arsenal of acquired knowledge, books, and my own studies. I keep lessons fun and interesting. A normal lesson with me would consist of two parts the first 30 minutes we would focus on learning and practicing warm ups, exercises, licks, notes, scales, chords, arpeggios, timing, rudiments, dynamics, ear training, theory, technique, etc. And the second half we would work on a song or jam together. Depending on the age and level of student, after spending six months studying with me you will be a rock star! LOL. Well, you may not have a recording contract, but you will have gained a volume of knowledge and taken your playing up a few levels. It's all about how much time and practice you put in and how much you want it. Every student has there own pace and desire so I do my part to help them become the best that they want to be.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio: drum set, practice pad, piano and keyboard, guitar amps, chairs, parents can sit in on lesson.

Broken Arrow Music Studio: drum set, guitar amp, piano, and lobby room for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in working with beginner to advanced level students. I teach all styles of music.

Hi! I'm a professional singer, actor, and voice teacher and I love teaching my craft. I am a certified VIP (Vocology In Practice) teacher, and I offer affordable voice lessons in NYC, Queens, and Long Island. I am very passionate about healthy singing and firmly believe that armed with the proper knowledge and tools anyone can learn to sing! In terms of children, it has been proven that children who study music are happier, smarter, and more confident. I will introduce your child to the joy of music not just by singing songs, but in a course that teaches music literacy, vocal technique, and ear training as well. Most importantly, we are having fun while taking this journey! I can also work with you/your child on acting monologues and/or sides for auditions. This especially comes in handy while preparing for musical theatre auditions. Chee

About Kelly
I am a professional singer with a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from UNC School of the Arts. I hold a significant amount of performance experience with professional opera companies like Tulsa Opera and Piedmont Opera, as well as a number of solo recital and oratorio performances.

Voice students can expect to work intimately with me on finding their core sound and building a strong vocal foundation. Each lesson will begin with in-depth vocal exercises designed to build range and tone quality, and then move into appropriate voice repertoire for their age and experience. We will work to find ease and evenness throughout the entire voice, replacing tension with intention! Clear communication and consistent work will help you release the voice you were born to flaunt!

Although my background is primarily in opera and classical voice,
I have a significant amount of experience with musical theater. I believe all performers, regardless of genre, must be classically trained to have a lifelong happy and healthy relationship with their voice. I look forward to working with you!

About Jamahl
Hi! I'm Jamahl.

I've been the Music Director at St. Paul AME Church in St. Augustine, FL since 2012, but I don't limit my lessons to Gospel and Contemporary Christian music. I, myself, regularly play/compose Pop, Rock, Indie, Jazz, etc. My years of varied experience have given me a firm grasp on how music, all music, works.

Through my own personal passion for music, I developed a passion for teaching it as well. I take a more practical approach to playing, focusing first on what/how to play and then how to think about it.

While I can play and teach some advanced music and have some formal training, I have no music degree. If you would like to learn to sight-read the sheet music for intermediate-to-difficult classical pieces, I encourage you to find teachers who better fit your needs. I can, however, teach you to play music "by ear"(b
y listening to it). This is how I learn most music and it is, in my opinion, the most enjoyable way to play.

If your interested in a customized approach to Improving your skills or even if you've never touched an instrument before, I'm excited to help you get to wherever it is you want to be as a musician. Feel free to contact me and we'll get started!

I loved having Jamahl as a teacher! I have had several music teachers over the years and all of them taught music in the same way, completely ignoring my personal learning style. I finally found someone who designed each lesson to meet my needs and made understanding how to apply what I'm learning about music theory directly into playing. He is very patient, flexible and encouraging. I would recommend him to anyone I know looking to learn.

I'm a professional classical and jazz singer, arranger, and choral conductor. My singing and arranging can be found on many award-winning professionally recorded albums, and I currently direct a vocal jazz quintet out of NYC. I studied voice at the University of Connecticut after discovering my passion for music.

I believe that music is a human thing, and that the most important step for any musician to take is to connect their music to their humanity. This allows the musician to truly affect the people that listen in ways that last long beyond the performance. Plus, when we stop thinking about all those technical things, our natural musicianship is allowed to take over. Music is a way for us to connect to ourselves and help others do so, too!

I've learned that a combination of technical foundations and spiritual focus results in the mo
st nuanced singers and musicians. Let's start the journey together!
