Listening is an art skill of its very own. The brain will train the ear to hear total pitch distinction, tone distinctions and rhythmic distinctions. The goal is to aim towards “perfect pitch”

About Shanita

I began singing at very young age and have never stopped : ) I began teaching music and voice while in college and have been doing so ever since! I'm classically-trained in voice and have a versatile sound and style. I help my students to find their voice and bring it out to the people who are wait

Monica
Shanita was very intuitive about my needs as a singer and even more so as a performer. I came with years of experience as a background singer, but with no confidence as a soloist/solo artist. She recognized my areas for improvement and honed in to work on those areas. Her teaching is truly tailored to the student and her experience as an artist/performer gives me the confidence that I am trusting my talents, and money, with the right person. This is my first lesson, but I feel at home and well taken care of.
Elisa
From the fundamentals of scales to articulating words to performing, she’s very helpful in different aspects of singing. In each lesson, she keeps a supportive and cheerful mood. At the end of the day, it’s clear that she wants you to improve to the best of your ability.

The exprience was fantastic and Miss Jackson is a great teacher.

My style is best described as a mindful creative vinyasa flow. I have been fortunate enough over the years to study with some amazing teachers in various forms of yoga, martial arts, fusion arts and mindfulness meditation. I love to introduce students to a way of integrating mindfulness meditation and a vigorous vinyasa flow into their daily lives to help them live more fully and joyfully. I have over 15 years of teaching and have studied and trained in vinyasa, Budokon, yogic arts, Prana vinyasa, martial arts, and mindfulness meditation with Tara Brach and Jack Cornfield. Would love to work with you!

While cultivating classical foundation, Vince developed jazz chops by listening, transcribing, and studying many jazz greats including Louis Armstrong, ...

My approach is fun, simple, and easy to understand. I focus on getting a strong foundation and excellent first experience with music. The child will be given a lesson and theory book to work from, but will also be encouraged to sing music they personally like. This keeps the child motivated to practice and adds an element of fun! These songs can then be used in our recitals, for auditions, or put in their personal repertoire book.

I have also successfully prepared many students for their Cab Calloway School for the Arts auditions and have made it in.

"I needed to prepare for a college statistics course and was pretty nervous because I have been out of school for quite some time. I was incredibly fortunate to find Colin as a math/statistics tutor. Besides being highly knowledgable, Colin is quite keen on how to explain topics in a way that fits how I learn. Not to mention, he is very good at plugging in short mini-lessons on algebra and basic math to refresh my memory on some of this stuff. Overall, Colin is patient, friendly and an amazing teacher. Highly recommend!"
