John B.

Nashville, TN

Even though my background is in Musical Theatre and Opera, I specialize in integrating the classical technique into other styles of music, such as rock or country, to help the singer have a more rich and healthy voice.

About john

Johnny was born and raised in Florence, South Carolina where at the young age of 16 made the most important decision of his life. He walked off of the baseball field and joined show choir. Since that day music has become a driving force in his life. He received his bachelors of music in classical voice performance from Belmont University in Nashville TN, and will be receiving his Masters of Fine Arts in Vocal Pedagogy and Classical Voice Performance from the prestigious Westminster choir college in Princeton NJ.

Johnny teaches singers from ages 10 to 94 whose aspirations range from perform
ing on Broadway, or just simply to sing better in the shower. Johnny believes that performing music should always be fun, because without fun music is just organized sound, not the language of the soul.

*** Lesson Details ***
Patient and enthusiastic voice teacher, who takes a classical approach to finding your voice.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Media Room, large room, office with some recording equipment

*** Travel Equipment ***
If I go to a home all I expect that the students to have is a piano

*** Specialties ***
I mainly teach Classical Voice and Musical Theatre, but I incorporate that technique into all styles of music to produce a strong healthy instrument without deviating from your style. I also have a great love of swing and Jazz music which I think can be greatly influenced by a great classical base.

Informal, Relaxed and you get results

John is a very gifted teacher.He quickly hones in on what you need to do to make your voice become what it needs to be and treats you more like a buddy than a subordinate.Within the first 3 lessons I was sounding much better and more at ease with singing. You want to learn to sing? He'll teach you.

John is a great teacher, very understanding and very patient. He immediately picks up on a student's weakness and works hard to help them overcome their struggles. I am very happy as a student and always look forward to my next lesson

James W.

Nashville, TN

I specialize in vocal pedagogy and teaching people singing technique. I give you the technique and you use it how you see fit!

About James

A versatile musician and teacher, Nashville-born musician James is dedicated to music through education, performance and personal growth. James has a diverse background in the musical arts. He has served as violinist and principal violist in many orchestras and ensembles. As a vocalist, James has sung in opera, oratorio, master-classes and recitals as a countertenor soloist. He has served as director of the Clarksville Youth Orchestra at Austin Peay State University and currently serves as the Director of Music Ministries and choirs for a local Presbyterian Church in Nashville, TN. He maint
ains a private studio in Nashville, TN and is on the faculty of the Allegro School of Music.

James has studied with many experts in vocal science and pedagogy and has had the wonderful opportunity to study with Linda Ferrara, D. Lance Respess, Richard Miller, world-class early music expert Nancy Zylstra and twentieth-century vocal music expert Sharon Mabry. He has had masterclasses with the Metropolitan Opera's Bodo Igesz, Metropolitan Opera Singers Daniel Taylor, Jennifer Lane (with whom he still studies), French-diction coach Elvia Pucinelli, vocal pedagogue Richard Miller, and Thomas King, director of the AIMS Gratz program. As a violinist and violist, James has studied with music-education specialist Sara Johnson, Francis Elliot, Nashville Recording-Artist Randall Olson, and concert violinist Stefan Petrescu.

As an educator, he has served on the faculties of the Cumberland Arts Institute, W.O. Smith School of Music, Murfreesboro City School System, School of the Arts at Austin Peay State University, Allegro School of Music and the East Nashville School of Music.

They have also gone on to major in music earning tens of thousands of dollars in scholarships from prestigious conservatories and colleges across the country. Many of his students have become professional musicians across many genres, educators themselves, or satisfied amateur hobbyists.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher many have described my style as nurturing-but-firm. When I see a student's potential, I make sure that student can attain it. I expect a willingness to learn, a desire to succeed, and a want for excellence. In return, I offer the tools to get the student there!

I know that not every student benefits best from only one method. As such, I employ a variety of teaching tools and methods to best suit each student. Strings students can expect to see a little bit of traditional training, a little bit of Suzuki and little bit of contemporary training. Voice students can see some Sieber vocalizes, some Vaccai, classical, jazz, and musical theater training built on an old-world teaching technique. It's all about giving the student the tools to do whatever he/she wants with his/her music of choice!

On your first lesson, I'll go over the materials needed, what you need to work on, and the very basics so you can immediately get to enjoying your new craft. In a few months, you'll be confident making new music or making better music. Within a year, you should be well prepared for one of my studio recitals!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a commercial music teaching studio used solely for the purposes of teaching. In the studio there is a piano, my music library, photo copier, computer, audio equipment, stereo, music stands, standing mirror, and various teaching tools. There is a waiting area for parents, siblings and other visitors.

*** Specialties ***
Voice: All Genres -- child-adult, all levels (beginning through advanced).
Violin: All Styles -- all levels (beginning through advanced).
Viola: All Styles -- all levels (beginning through advanced).
Cello: All Styles -- beginning through intermediate.

Brianne A.

Nashville, TN

Character development, story-telling, drama, and a healthy voice are all the things that make a great Broadway Singer. Let's get together and figure out how we can make all of these ingredients come together for you and get you sounding like Idina Menzel!

About Brianne

I am a working artist/songwriter with placements on Nickelodeon, NBC, Rockband, international radio airplay and was featured on "This Sing Off" 2014 Holiday Special with Timothy's Gift (video below). I graduated from Belmont University in 2009 with a BA in Commercial Voice-emphasis in music business. I am currently the co-owner of The Recording Republic here in Nashville, TN where my partner and I write/produce music and help develop artists. I have been teaching voice, piano, theory, performance and songwriting on and off for the past 5 years and love every second of it. I Can't wait to mee
t you and see what goals we can reach together!

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important things I focus on in my lessons are positivity and building confidence. The confidence learned expressing yourself creatively is something that bleeds over into all aspects of life. It's so wonderful watching a kid (or an adult!) gradually come out of their shells during the process.

During the first lesson, I sit down with the student and talk to them about their dreams and goals. That way, I can build a curriculum that perfectly fits their needs. We can learn anything their heart desires-from classical Beethoven to writing their own music! For basic piano I love to use the "Bastien" and "Alfred" basic collections because they are what I grew up on.

Can't wait to meet you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have a weighted keyboard, mic, amp, mirror and video for recording performances.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Mic, amp and video recorder are portable. Student must provide piano for in home visits. And plus, you'll need one to practice!

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in beginner classical piano and improvisation, beginner-advanced voice, theory, performance and songwriting of all styles.

Highly recommend Brianne!

I started taking piano lessons with Brianne a little over two months ago, and I have seen a huge improvement in my performance and confidence. Brianne is very professional and experienced, and she knows exactly what she's talking about. My favorite thing about the lessons is that she is takes time to get to know her students to find out exactly what their goals are and what they hope to get out of the lessons. I came in with some piano experience and an idea of what I wanted, and she was able to customize my lessons so that they perfectly fit me. Brianne is very encouraging and wants you to succeed. I would definitely recommend taking lessons from her!

I've learned soo much in such a short time

i've always wanted to learn how to play the piano but I never could find the right teacher. Brianne has really helped me find my place as a budding piano player. She is very thorough and makes learning fun. She creates such a calm atmosphere with no judgment and i really enjoy that. Another thing that separates her from the other teachers i've had is that she doesn't teach based on her agenda she teaches me what i want to know. I can't wait fro my next lesson!

Natalie L.

Nashville, TN

Using my expertise as a performer and writer of musical theater, you will start with an excellent foundation for technique that will make Broadway-style singing effortless and fun. You will also learn to act a song in both interpreting the lyrics and moving your body. Finally, we will build your "rep" book with songs that fit your voice and cast-type so that you can feel confident auditioning for and performing in musicals.

I have a Bachelor of Music in musical theater performance from Catholic University and have experience performing regionally as well as coaching in New York. As a musical theater writer, I regularly work with both aspiring and current Broadway performers.

About Natalie

Hi, everyone!

I'm so excited to be in Music City! I just moved to Nashville from New York City where I worked with Broadway performers and kids auditioning for some of the most competitive performance schools in the country. I'm confident I can help you achieve your music goals, whether they be learning to produce a powerful, resonate, healthy sound with your voice, becoming proficient in piano from everything from Bach to Billy Joel, or writing clear, catchy songs that will have a big impact on an audience.

Please check out my bio below and feel free to ask me any questions about lesso
ns with the "Ask a Question" button.

Hope to be working with you very soon!
