Hello!

I am a working, professional operatic tenor in the Philadelphia area. I have been teaching for the past 6 years in San Diego, Houston, and Salt Lake City. I have sung with many professional operatic companies including San Diego Opera, Aspen Opera Theatre, The Santa Fe Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, and Opera de Tijuana.

My students receive world-class training as well as a highly personalized approach that ensures their goals are attained. I emphasize a foundation of healthy vocal technique. We then use those principals in whichever genre my student wishes --- music theatre, pop, rock, jazz, gospel, country, or opera. Our sessions are relaxed and fun while also focusing on key concepts and repertoire that the student wants to learn.

Whether singing is a dream job for you or you would just like to learn how to use your voice for fun, I can help you to use your voice healthily so that the only thing you need to do is enjoy the singing experience.

Coatesville, PA

View Full Profile

When I first begin teaching a student, I tell them that everyone has the ability to sing well no matter his or her experience. I also tell them that there are four things that a good singer must have: breathe control (air is your fuel, and must be used efficiently and effectively to give you the best sound), posture (in order to have access to your air and prevent vocal damage you must practice good posture habits), diction (how you pronounce words when singing can impede or improve vocal tone, as well as help or hinder the audience in understanding the lyrics) and finally and most importantly, passion. Passion is how emotionally connected you are to music and is what really allows the singer to connect with his or her audience.

About Rosalind
Hello! My name is Rosalind and I believing in teaching music lessons that go the extra mile. Students and parents can expect excellence in customer service that goes beyond their weekly lessons.

How are lessons with me different?

-Convenient Locations in Downingtown, Coatesville, West Chester as well as online lessons!

-Lessons are recorded and sent to parents and students within 24 hours so that assignments are always clear and that you have a clear idea of progress

-Access to my student newsletter which includes tips for how to improve as a performer and news about student's upcoming performances

-I help students find and prepare for performance opportunities and I attend student performances

-I select one student a month to participate in our student showcase, featuring them in my newsletter

-I host twice a ye
ar recitals where students can show off their new skills

-I bring all materials to lessons for your convenience (excluding piano)

-singers receive recorded warm ups to practice with at home

-I am skilled at helping students with ear training if they need it for voice, most of my students can match pitch after a month of singing lessons no matter the trouble they have had before

-every student gets a "new student kit" at their first lesson including a list of performance opportunities and a vocal health guide for singers

-weekly instructional videos for voice sent

-weekly links to articles about music and the brain

-I respond to student concerns and questions within 24 hours

I welcome students of all ages and work hard to make music accessible for everyone.

-Young kids in voice can expect their lessons to be fun and educational including using visual tools like scarves and shakers, and imaginative play to learn vocal techniques needed to sing on pitch and with proper breathe control.

-Children in piano lessons will learn music theory and piano technique through simple songwriting exercises, theory games, visual tools and more. They will learn about composer's lives and musical styles, providing them with a well-rounded lesson experience.

-Older children and adult singers can expect to learn about their vocal anatomy in order to better control of their voice and become independent during practice sessions at home. They will learn how to improve breathe control, posture and diction. Time during lessons will also be dedicated to developing stage presence and discussing vocal health. Singers will be allowed to select repertoire from the genre of their choice. They can also learn how to harmonize and sight-sing in lessons if they would like.

-I teach beginning guitar students and help them learn how to play with proper technique and accompany themselves when singing. These students learn to read staff and tab and shape different chords on the guitar. I use theory games and visual tools for kids to make lessons fun

-Music theory/composition students will be taught how to read and write music. Students will be invited to improvise on the piano and record their improvisations.They will be taught how to sight-sing in order to learn how to notate any melodies in their head
They will learn how music has changed and been influenced throughout history. They will learn how to read lead sheets and use stylistic invariants in their playing. They will be provided with honest feedback and constructive help on their compositions.They will learn how the human brain processes music and how best to capitalize upon this process for the greatest audience appeal.

-I have experience teaching students with special needs and adjusting lessons to help them meet their goals.

About me!

I am a Westminster Choir College '11 Alum  who graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Music, summa cum laude. I also have my master's degree in music therapy from Drexel University. I am also a Member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and a  Board Certified Music Therapist. During my time at school I performed at Carnegie Hall and the Kimmel Center, and did music therapy work with older adults, as well as disadvantaged children and parents.

I also have my own parent/child music class I host every Thursday September-May. It's never to early to start a music education!

I have been teaching for over four years and now have a studio of more than 70 happy students. Teaching music is my passion, and I love seeing students grow!

I often draw upon my experience from my master's degree in music therapy, which taught me that music can have a profound effect on the human brain and upon cognitive development.  My skills as a music therapist allow me to better understand a student's cognitive strengths and areas for improvement, and to develop individualized teaching strategies which utilize student strengths.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studios are equipped with keyboard, guitar or piano, as well as a sizable repertoire of classical, broadway and popular music. ' I also have a mirror for voice students to see how their body is moving when singing and visual tools for students like scarves, whiteboard, markers, crayons...ect. I am more than happy to help students find any music they may need for lessons that is not already in my library.

I recommend the following books for piano students (listed by age):
Ages 4-6:
My First Piano Adventure, Lesson Book A with by Nancy & Randall Faber
Ages 6-12:Piano Adventures - Level 1: Lesson Book [Book]Faber Piano Adventures

Ages 12 and up:

Adult All-In-One Course: Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course, Level ...by Willard A. Palmer

Voice: Alfred's Teach Yourself to Sing
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in ear training, sight-singing and knowing and understanding vocal anatomy. Many of my students are students who have gone on to score lead roles in their schools or community theater performances, as well as lead singers of local bands looking to improve their techniques and improve their vocal health.

I specialize in theory and sight-reading for piano and theory students.

I also specialize in teaching those with special needs.

Philadelphia, PA

Students will learn proper singing technique and songs suited to their personal interests in order to establish a solid foundation.

About Maria
At a young age, I found my passion through playing and listening to jazz and classical music and experiencing the interpersonal connections music creates. From performing to teaching, I love to share my passion for music with those around me.

Since graduating from Temple University with a B.M. in Music Education and Jazz Studies, I have played with musical groups in Europe and recently became a K-8 general music teacher in Philadelphia. Playing and teaching around the world and at home has given me great insight into how students need to be taught: with relevancy to their own lives while maintaining artistry and integrity.

My teaching experience ranges from private lessons and jazz workshops to summer music camps and K-12 music classes. I love teaching and will probably never stop!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe it is impor
tant to solidify the foundations of music, so that the student can grow into a knowledgeable, expressive musician. My lessons are taught with a personal and energetic approach leaving the student excited and eager to further explore music. I always make sure that the student is having fun!

Learning an instrument is all about personal growth as a musician. I will help my students become better musicians week by week as long as they are willing to practice and come prepared for the lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will provide a metronome, tuner, music stand and some music books/repertoire. Student may need to provide their own lesson books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical techniques, improvisation, composition and songwriting.

****Cancellation Policy:
Out of common courtesy, please notify me at least 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel and/or reschedule a lesson, and you will not be charged. NOTE: You will be charged for the lesson if you cancel less than 24 hours before the scheduled lesson. No notification of cancellation will result in being charged for the lesson as well. Bottom line, please communicate to me through call/text/e-mail in ADVANCE if you need to cancel a lesson in order not to be charged for the lesson. *********************************

Cancelled Lessons = You have contacted me in advance and you will not be charge. This lesson will be rescheduled.

Missed Lessons = You have NOT contacted me in advance and you will be charge. ** If you have to miss a lesson, we will reschedule a make-up time for that lesson, free of charge.

Maria is my first sax teacher and i loveeeed her. She is extremely patient, and knows how to teach (which is so important). She also inspires me for jazz solo pieces. I remember one time she just asked me to improvise and great music was "forced" out of my horn.

She is a great teacher and I would def have kept taking lessons from her if not she moved out of town. I am really hoping that she will return and do lessons with me again.

My voice lessons with Erin have been the highlight of my year! She's helped me discover sounds I never thought I was capable of making. Not only have I become a much better singer, Im now a much better overall musician. Erin's ear training exercises has led my creativity to really blossom - which is totally not what I expected from voice lessons. Her lessons are excellently tailored towards my needs and what I am trying to achieve. The lessons are incredibly fun and rewarding! I look forward to them very eagerly.

Last year my 16-year old and 13-year-old daughter both started taking lessons with Erin and although they came in at very different levels, I was floored with how much they have each grown as singers—in their technique, artistry, and confidence. Erin was able to pinpoint their individual needs and help them each improve in a way that made them enjoy singing even more. My 13-year-old had never before Erin found a teacher who could keep her motivated. Beyond what she taught them, Erin is a wonderful advocate for my daughters and encourages and supports them through their auditions, performances, and competitions. I am so thankful for her impact on my daughters’ lives.

I'm a college student studying classical voice, jazz improvisation, musical theater technique as well as contemporary musicianship. I interned in a voice studio for two years and am now working with a high school musical theater after school program. I have experience in community theater, performing in opera's abroad, jazz theory and improv, and even transcription. I like to focus on stage presence and audition etiquette. I have never auditioned for something I have not landed! If you're a beginner not yet sure what you want to focus on it's time to study with someone who has studied a little bit of everything!

About Annie
I'm a student at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. I have studied Jazz, Musical Theater, Opera, German Lieder, Contemporary Music as well as theory classes and ear training. I have performed in various show choirs, community theater productions and most recently in Mozart's The Magic Flute in Salzburg, Austria. I am also an intern at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia working alongside High School students in an after school musical theater program. I have taken classes on voice pedagogy, teaching music to children with special needs, and also worked with students at an after school program at a nearby elementary school. I am very new to teaching but I would love to work with a beginner student who is looking to get their feet wet with some repertoire as well as ear training and some music theory!

In my voice studio we will sharpen all of the tools relevant to the art form and have a great time doing it! We will explore vocal technique, breath support, diction, repertoire selection, stage craft, audition consultation, et al. All experience levels are welcome! I will be teaching out of my Alma Mater, the Academy of Vocal Arts, right off Rittenhouse Square in Philadelphia.

About Ben
My name is Ben Wager and I'm a Philadelphia-born/raised/trained/based operatic bass-baritone currently in the midst of an international career as a soloist. I have been a guest at many of the world's major opera houses including Opera Philadelphia, The Dallas Opera, Lyric Opera of Kansas City, Los Angeles Opera, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Den Norske Opera (Oslo, Norway), Minnesota Opera, Opera San Jose, Nashville Opera, along with my 2012 debut at Carnegie Hall. I've had the privilege of sharing the stage with many of the industry's most famous personalities and have performed over 50 named roles in seven languages.
Beginning my career in music as a bass-guitarist, I discovered classical voice while taking voice lessons myself. Along with over 15 years in the field of classical voice, I bring with me a background in pop/jazz/rock music. I
have the knowledge and experience to work with any student with any goal in mind.
Starting in 2018, I've decided to open my own voice studio out of the Academy of Vocal Arts and I couldn't be more excited!
