Karen J.

Miami, FL

About Karen

I am a professional singer with over 25 years experience performing individually and with bands, orchestras, ensembles, choirs, and a cappella groups in concerts, theater, clubs and festivals, nationally and internationally.

I began singing in the church choir, talent shows and performing with various groups as a teenager. Music allowed me creative freedom and excitement and took me to a world of wonder. Attending music schools and colleges I studied voice, piano, performance technique, theory, sight singing/ear training, composition, jazz theory, improvisation, world music, and musical t
heater.

*** Lesson Details ***

I enjoy teaching music and inspiring students. As a vocal coach and piano instructor, I tailor lessons to fit students' particular needs to develop skills as they prepare for auditions, musical careers or music for personal enjoyment. Lessons move at a pace that is comfortable for, and challenging to, students. I aim to strengthen musical intuition and insure steady and thorough progress.

I offer In-Home training, allowing students to take private lessons at their convenience in their homes.

Excelent professor, it was way better than I expected. She was punctual. We got a missed communication at the beginning, but I am sure we will get alone.

Thanks for your concern,
Best regards.

I have never played piano before--ever--and in three lessons, Karen has me playing with both hands, and understanding music theory. She is SO sweet--even my husband thinks she's adorable and kind. I really enjoy my hour long practice with her once a week. She is getting me kickstarted so I can eventually play songs along with Sara Bareilles music and the like.

great vocal coach!

Karen always has a smile on her face. Very encouraging and optimistic teacher. Knows exactly what I need to work on and the exercises to accomplish it. She also got the music for any song I wanted to sing and emailed me the instrumental tracks so I could practice on my own. I will miss her very much!

Lucian W.

Miami, FL

About Lucian

Lucian W is an alumnus of Berklee College of Music in Boston and former faculty member of the Hartford Conservatory. His vocal studies have been with Jacqueline Jarrett and David Baker in Connecticut, Jane Ellison at Loyola University in Montreal, noted operatic tenor Carmine Gagliardi in New York City, and Gina Moretta (whose students have included Gloria Estefan and Jon Secada) in Miami. He studied privately with world famous jazz guitarists George Benson and Chuck Wayne and has had a full time performing career of several decades as a guitarist, pianist, vocalist, bassist, arranger and orc
hestra leader.
Lucian believes that by sharing his enjoyment of making music with his students, he can give them confidence in other areas. That is because, in order to make music, they must go through a process of physical discovery through practice. They are then empowered by experiencing the connections between inspiration, work, and pleasure.
He performs, as a solo entertainer, an unusually wide ranging repertoire because of his versatility on guitar, piano, and vocals. Being an accomplished arranger with a vast library of charts also allows him to lead a ten piece orchestra as competently as a trio or quartet. He has performed extensively in New York, Chicago, Cape Cod, and Florida.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always try to make lessons as comfortable and enjoyable as possible yet challenging enough to maintain interest. I build lessons around the student's individual interests (specific songs or styles) so that he or she can learn the technical fundamentals in a relevant context.
My own curriculum is supplemented by the following:
Guitar: Hal Leonard Guitar Method, Aaron Shearer Classical Guitar Method
Piano: Alfred's Basic Piano Course , John W. Schaum Piano Course
Voice: Jeffrey Allen's Secrets of Singing, Nicola Vaccai Practical Method

*** Studio Equipment ***
Hardman baby grand acoustic piano
OptimusMD1600 electronic keyboard
Crate TX50D guitar amplifer

*** Specialties ***
- Singing lesson time is generally divided 50/50 between voice building and repertoire. I accompany vocalists on both piano and guitar, teaching the melody notes as they are sung along with the piano. Then, once the melody is learned, I often switch to the guitar with just chordal backing. The acoustic guitar is also softer than the piano and lets the singer hear their own voice better. For voice building, I use my own concepts plus approaches of famous voice teachers like Jeffrey Allen, Seth Riggs, and Anthony Frissel.
- I am very experienced performing all styles of guitar and can cater to the student's specific area of interest, whether it be rock, folk, classical, or jazz.
- With piano, I work on fundamentals of reading and technique. Learning basic harmony and chord construction starting with triads (3 note chords), the student can soon read single stave lead sheets (a form of music notation widely utilized by professional musicians) as well as the grand staff. This approach trains the ear and makes learning how to play popular songs much easier.

Lucian will listen to whatever it is that you want to learn and give you all the building blocks to play how you want to play and explore your options on the neck in many different ways. I am a intermediate guitar player and within a few lessons with Lucian I was given tools to work on and practice for months to improve my skills and technique/ approach to playing. I would recommend his lessons to ANYONE looking to improve!

Axel O.

Miami, FL

About Axel

I found out early on (age of 13) that I had a facility to teach and help friends understand music concepts. Some said it's a gift, others said it's vocation. To me it was just sharing what I loved. Since I had already decided to make music my career I made it a point to learn more and all I could in this field. Three degrees later (B.M /Berklee College of Music, B.M and M.M. /University of Miami) having studied under amazing Masters and years of performing, touring, producing and recording I have a lot to offer anyone, any age, any level when they choose me as their music teacher.

*** Lesson
Details ***
My students would describe our lessons as fun and enjoyable. That's because I want everyone to learn the basics of music in a relaxed and comfortable environment. I'm easy going and encouraging in character and make it a point to explain in the simplest manner the many concepts of music. I help students develop good habits of practice so they can improve their skills by giving them personal tips. Each student is unique and learns at a particular pace. I'm in tune with the student and move accordingly helping him/her navigate thru the music lesson while providing assistance towards reaching their specific goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano /keyboards/ protools in my studio with living room seating for parents. Coffee/water always complementary. Protools recording studio available for my student singers at discounted rates. Affordable and competitive rates for amateur-professional singers looking to record/produce a demo.

*** Travel Equipment ***
None. Currently not traveling to students homes. Lessons available at my studio only.

*** Specialties ***
Studied Jazz & Classical. Performed Pop, Rock, R&B and Latin musical styles.

Matthew P.

Miami, FL

About Matthew

My start in music began with trips from a young age to my mom's rehearsals. As a young child my first instrument of interest was the drums and noticing that I wasn't that good (sister playing better) I quickly moved on to other instruments. During my tenth grade year I joined my high school's marching band playing the trombone. I decided to continue the trombone as my primary instrument while in college at Grambling State University. There I was also able to study other instruments such as bass guitar, piano and organ. Going to college in Louisiana, which has such a musically rich environment,
allowed me the opportunity to play venues such as casinos, clubs, appear in commercials and even a halftime show for super bowl 32 as well as other NFL games. My goal for teaching music is to give students the discipline to achieve all of their life's goals.
