Francisca M.

Miami, FL

About Francisca

I am a very passionate and dedicated instructor. I love working with students at all levels from ages 9 and up, from beginners to experienced adults. It doesn't matter where you are in your musical development, I can help and encourage you to be your very best. I graduated with a Bachelor of Music from the University of Western Sydney Australia with (High Class Honors) and Majored in Music Performance and Sub Majors in Composition and Theatre. I have had the opportunity to perform in the USA at various venues and overseas in Australia at the Sydney Opera House to name a few.

My teaching ex
perience dates back to my University days. I was in my first year of my music degree when I applied for my first teaching position at a music school in Australia. I taught there throughout the Four years of my Bachelor's Degree and remained teaching there after that. I also started teaching at another well respected music school and remained there until the end of 2010. During this time I was very fortunate to have a large database of students who were with me from the beginning of my teaching career up until I left both schools. The only reason I left was as I am also a performer; I was offered an opportunity to perform overseas and i took it. It was a very exciting part of my life as a performer and has helped me grow as an artist and teacher immensely.

In 2012, I relocated to Miami and have been teaching from my private home studio while I continue working on my music career. As a musician and educator, I am very passionate about my teaching and like to bring the best out in my students. Every lesson is tailored specifically to your individual learning needs. I will teach you a vocal technique based on the Seth Riggs Teaching method with my own methods implemented, performance skills, repertoire selection, and audition preparation amongst other skills. It doesn't matter what your desired goal is, I can help you achieve it. The most important part of it all is that you have fun!!

And for piano I like to teach through a series of books depending on your learning levels. We can start at book one, with scales from the book A Dozen a Day, or we can take the the more traditional route of scales, or learn popular songs. This decision can be made by you and I when we meet at our first lesson and discuss what your goals are as a musician.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every lesson is tailored to your individual learning levels. I normally asses this in the first lesson. Lets start with the Singers.

Most singers are looking for help with contemporary popular music so using specific texts are void here. I will teach you a method of singing technique based on the Seth Riggs singing method, implemented with a technique called "Emotion Centered Singing" which will help you understand music beyond melody and composition but also through text and individual interpretation through story telling customed to your needs. I also teach Musical Theatre Singing, pop, rock, jazz, so if these are routes you would like to take, I can help you on your way there. I will help you choose repertoire for auditions, performances, we will work on performance and audition technique and many more fun things!!!

For the Pianists. This also depends on what you want to get out of your lessons. Do you want to learn pop songs? arrangements? Or do you want to learn classical pieces? I ask you all these questions and more at our first lesson to make sure you and I are both happy with the direction we will take. I use either Scale Books or The Dozen a Day Series or the ABRSM Piano series, Alfred's Adult Piano book and many more. Once again the important factor here is Fun based learning!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide a full size digital weighted piano for all Lessons, it has various different sounds and a great grand piano sound for piano students. Printer for any homework given, and stationery

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide some books for learning and make copies accordingly. The student should have a working piano/keyboard in the home. If i request they purchase a book for their learning development, they are required to purchase it.

*** Specialties ***
For Singing- I teach a method called Speech Level Singing. Similar to the Seth Riggs Speech level singing as well as a technique called Emotion centered singing which deals with connecting with the song and feeling the connection through the core. This is useful for performance and interpretation. I specialize in teaching, Pop, RnB, Musical Theatre, Rock and Folk

For Piano, I use a variety a books. I particularly like the Alfred's series as well as the Bastien Series. I also like to encourage other learning materials for holidays which is lots of fun!! This depends on the students learning level. I asses learning levels in the first lesson and plan lessons accordingly after that in order to have the student progress each week. I teach classical piano and contemporary, pop

Mitchell C.

Miami, FL

About Mitchell

With almost 20 years of music education experience, I have developed a super fun and effective teaching method that has proven to work. I am a kid at heart and love working with children. And as the oldest child of 6, I possess the necessary patience and enthusiasm for their learning development. In addition, I have worked with many adult students who initially thought it was "too late" for them to learn an instrument. They proved themselves wrong and were very successful with their new found talent. I have been a professional recording artist and live performer since the age of 15. I began te
aching around the same time as a way of earning extra spending money. As the years went on, I fell more in love with teaching and formed a career out of it. So come join me on this musical journey and give the gift of music!!

I have taken lessons from Mitchell and have grown leaps and bounds in my ability to not on become a better guitar player, but also learning the fundamentals so that I can play on my own. He is the ultimate professional and his own skills as a musician show up when he is teaching.

It was a pleasure meeting Mitchell, he's a very good instructor. My daughter became very enthusiastic with everything that he taught her in just one hour. He was very clear with his methods and she understood everything. I recommend him as very good instructor.

Kristine M.

Hollywood, FL

About Kristine

With four wonderful years of musical teaching experience, I share my gifts and talents with those who too want to express themselves through music. I believe music is worldwide language and so do not intend to stifle any students individual style or sound with technique. Instead I allow the student to take the lessons and techniques learned and together we find ways to adapt to that style so that their best 'musical picture' is heard.
Apart from teaching, I enjoy singing at my own gigs, doing backgrounds for other artists, and working on new music for production in the studio. I have produce
d my debut album in 2007 and have released two new singles marketed to the Caribbean/reggae/Latin genre. I have directed elementary and middle school choirs and led the musicianship of musicals.
I believe if a student has their talent, dream, and enthusiasm packed in their backpack...then they are ready to start lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students will expect to do Breathing exercises, scales and other warm up exercises.
Students will have worked on a few piece songs for their repertoire based on their goals and unique style. I expect students to practice outside of the classroom so that each lesson is a building process. I am pretty laid back but I take your progress seriously. I like to enjoy the lesson with you and see you develop. After 3 or 6 months students will know how to breathe properly and effectively for singing support and endurance. Students will have identified how to control and use their tone- understanding the different levels of the voice, chest, middle and head voice.
I prefer to work with younger students at a beginning or intermediate level, as opposed to adults and advanced students.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Church Hall, small church, where keyboard
Living Room, full keyboard and CD player for accompanied, room for parents in living room

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student should have a keyboard or piano for lessons in their home.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, R&B

I LOVE KRISTINE!

I've been a student of Kristine for only a year and in that year I have learned so much from her. She has shown patience towards me because I am a little hard-headed and stubborn. Although I never really worked to my full potential, she still has helped me to improve in my singing. This class has given me the ability to reach a higher vocal range. Kristine is a beautiful woman inside and out who truly loves and cares for her students. I'm so glad I am able to have Kristine as my vocal coach. I wouldn't choose any other teacher.

Kristine has been wonderful, encouraging and very, very patient with my daughter. She has taken the time and has allowed my daughter who is extremely shy, to move at her pace that's right for her. Kristine has been a blessing to my daughter, she is awesome and I am very grateful that my daughter has her as an instructor!

What can I say about the phenomenal experience I've had taking lessons with Kristine. She is not only an amazing teacher, but an extremely talented singer and performer. I was privileged to watch her do a live performance in December. I started taking voice with her in about August of last year and cannot believe how far I've come. I know that others have hear the difference in my voice. She has not only taught me good techniques and breathing but has worked with me to develop my middle voice which has been particularly challenging for me. I have said many times that I never knew that I was capable of singing as I am now; the difference has been so apparent to me. Kristine makes lessons fun but at the same time challenges you to bring out your full potential. I sing mainly in a church setting and am so thankful to God that He led me to her. If you are thinking of taking lessons from her don't even hesitate. You will not regret it. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

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.
