Private Music Performance Teacher

My focus is to help each student find the easiest and most comfortable sound they can produce, and my goal is to always be supportive of students' individual needs so they can be confident in their progress and artistry. As someone who started out with little singing ability (an octave range, difficulty matching pitch) and who ended attending college on a music scholarship and now sings professionally and competitively, I am a firm believer that anyone can be a singer if they have the right instruction and are willing to work.

About Bruno

Experienced teacher and performer from Austin, Texas. I am a UT Austin Graduate (BA English with honors, BM Voice Performance with honors; minor in Creative writing), receiving scholarships in both fields. I have taught private voice for 6 years and taught 8th Grade English for 2 years. Currently

My son was excited to have a real singer as an instructor, and hasn't stopped bouncing and singing scales since! We're looking forward to growing with Mr. B's help!

I hired Bruno to help me comprehend my book for class. He showed up and genuinely cared that I was getting it. He showed me a note taking idea that to me seemed that if I just wrote a couple of ideas down I’d go back and know where I was as far as going back and studying. He asked if I needed to write this point down and basically showed how to do the job. Great work.
Harley
Mr. Barbosa is a very outgoing person who always checks in on his students before we begin the lesson. At the
beginning of the lesson, we start with warm-ups so our voice is
ready to sing high or low notes. When you first start with Mr. Bar-
bosa, he will have you sing multiple songs and scales so he can
learn your vocal range. Mr. Barbosa makes sure that you understand
the content and if you don't, he is helpful and explains it in a way we
can comprehend. Lessons are a great way to improve your singing.
I’m becoming more comfortable performing in front of my peers.

My name is Maryanne Dymond Fiorentino. I started taking lessons with Melissa a few weeks ago. I have to say she is a very good voice instructor. She is kind, patient, and always wanting to help keep improving my craft. She pays close to eye on any mistakes and loves what she does she is very knowledgable and easy to talk to about anything regarding the voice singing and repertoire. I would like to say I give a 1 star to the take lessons online site Melissa and I have been working together on skype which is a zillion times better in being able to communicate.

Ms. Melissa did such a fabulous job preparing me for a church solo piece, Give Me Jesus. She worked with me so much on it, specifically with the dynamics and musicality. She is so patient and kind when working with me, and I look forward to her lessons every week. :)

Alexandra is everything you could ever want in a first-rate teacher: she is inspiring, devoted, nurturing, exciting, knowledgeable, a fierce advocate for her students - the list goes on and on. However, what makes Alexandra truly remarkable is her almost magical ability to instantly spark intrinsic motivation - and a love of music - in all of her students. If you are looking to learn from a truly life-changing teacher, look no further than Alexandra Perdew-Bhatt.
George M.
Alexandra has met all my expectations. She is very patient. I feel like we are moving along at a good pace. I had zero musical experience and after only 3 lessons can read basic sheet music and actually have music come out of the piano!! I am enjoying the whole process.

Great first lesson! Looking forward to next week.

"I played in the Advent Band with Vandi as our worship leader for several years. Her energy and enthusiasm was contagious and she always provided positive, constructive criticism. Vandi's knowledge of music theory was demonstrated in her ability to arrange our songs to suit the various skill levels of the band members and the congregation! This is not an easy task and she handled it with ease and grace. I would highly recommend her as an instructor."

Ms. Chau is a parent's dream! She is soft spoken, incredibly kind, patient, and talented. My daughter is shy and sensitive, but Ms. Chau had her laughing and playing with confidence from the from the first lesson! I HIGHLY recommend this instructor for first timers like us as she is truly a gem. She makes learning notes, rhythm, and rests so easy."

"Excellent teacher

I took music performance lessons with Cecilia. I am a professional recorder player and in the lessons I learned and discovered many things about how my body works and how this influences my way of playing. It has been wonderful to learn to play connected with my body and tension free! My sound and technique have improved and I can express my musicianship easier.
The lessons with her have been a very enriching experience for me as a musician. I also learned to detect the important issues I need to work in each piece and to find an effective solution. This experience has been wonderful!"

"I have wanted to work with Jan since I saw her as a judge at the LAMN JAM Music Contests, her feedback to the artists was always spot on and I wanted to hear what she might have to say about my work and her suggestions. I have been lucky enough to have taken lessons and workshops with Jan for a couple months now and it has definitely had a big impact on my confidence as well as making me aware of what I need to work on. It is great to put yourself in a situation where a professional will be honest with you and help give you the tools to better your performance, this is exactly what I get out of working with Jan. You can sing out as much as you want, but listeners, friends and family usually just tell you how great you are and its hard to grow that way. Jan is kind but straightforward on what you need to do to better yourself as a performer. I highly recommend studying with Jan!"

"Una Maestra!

Cecilia es simplemente una Maestra! Es innato y muy natural en ella. Soy contrabajista y no he necesitado cambiar mi técnica, ella me ha escuchado y me ayudó a repotenciar mi performancia con conceptos muy simples. Sus ideas son tan claras que hizo sonar mi contrabajo como si fuera un profesional. Necesitamos maestros como ella.
Cecilia is simply a Master! She has a natural talent. I am a DoubleBass player and I didn't need to change my technique, she just listened my playing and helped me to 'repower' my performance. Her ideas are so clear that she made my bass sounds like a professional player. We need masters like her."
