Shakeatha D.

Houston, TX

About Shakeatha

I have sung for as long as I could speak! I hail from a family of recording artists and have graced the stage since the age of 4. During high school, I learned to read music and took piano lessons. This peaked my interest in wanting to learn the fundamentals of music so I decided to major in it in college.

I then went on to Xavier University, where I received a Bachelor of Arts in Music. While at Xavier I participated in many productions. I also received a Xavier University Music Scholarship for four years. I have noted my experience in detail: Xavier University of Louisiana-Senior Recital;
Xavier University Student Recital – “Opera under the Stars”, April 2008; Xavier University Concert Choir Midwest Tour – Soloist for “Amazing Grace”, April 2008; Xavier University of Louisiana Student Productions - Treemonisha (2004), Purlie (2005); Xavier University University Chorus; 2004-2009; Xavier Concert Choir; 2004-2009; Vocalist with Recording Artist: Josh Jones Nu Horizon, New Orleans, Louisiana; Vocalist with Recording Artist: Bishop Alvin Davis & Company, Baldwin, LA; Greater St. Stephan Gospel Choir and Praise Team; Background Studio Vocalist for Ebony Lockett (2009), Community of Faith Praise Team, 2012-2013

Currently, I sing at many venues and with various groups throughout Houston area. In addition to all of this, I also perform a great deal of gospel music on the praise team at the Community of Faith.

As you can see I have a great deal of experience and expertise different genres, and I look forward to sharing my knowledge with my students.

*** Lesson Details ***
To my future students:

I sit down at our first lesson to make a Custom Lesson Plan for what you want to study and goals you want to achieve.

I want to help you reach your goals and make you happy as a singer, so I am open to teach you anything no matter how little/much experience you have.

Next, we will pick a fun area to work on, and a challenging area to conquer. For example: we will work on a fun song then we will work on reading and/or rudiments.
I am also very patient and flexible to those students whom have special needs, or need to accelerate at a slower pace.

“Words make you think a thought. Music makes you feel a feeling. A song makes you feel a thought.”- E.Y. Harburg

Shakeatha is great! After just a few lessons, I felt like I was improving. I like that she stresses proper vocal technique and breathing as well, which are very important. She's also highly versatile, so no matter what style you want to learn, whether its pop, jazz, soul, or classical, she's got you covered. She really encouraged and challenged me, reawakening my love for singing and music overall. I highly recommend her!

About Monique

I have a degree in Music (Vocal Performance) and Psychology from Mt. St. Mary's College in Los Angeles, Ca. After taking a break to have 5 of my own children, I now teach children and adults how to make the most out of their voice. I still perform on stage locally. I just finished the role of "Domina" in "A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum." Other recent roles include "The Witch" in "Big Fish the Musical", "Kala" in "Tarzan the Stage Musical" and just before that "Judy" in "9 to 5 the musical". I have been directing choir and also performing solos for the last 20 years in my loc
al church. I currently have 50 plus private students ages 4-53! My area of concentration is musical theater, but I can teach all genres.

*** Lesson Details ***
During a typical lesson we cover relaxation and practice proper breathing, breath control, vocalization techniques, pronunciation and finally application of technique to approved song of choice.
If you love to sing, or have always wanted to learn sing, or improve your singing, or even get ready for that all important audition....then lets get started today! Remember, "as long as we live there is never enough singing"! Don't wait!

I also put on two student shows each year! They are an incredible experience for the singer to get in front of an audience and perform a solo. We also do two very fun group songs from theater with choreography and costume changes! Lots of fun! (Participation is not mandatory, however.)

I have only had one lesson thus far, but it was really a great experience. I've had many vocal coaches throughout the years, but it is obvious Mr. Allen knows what he's doing. I hadn't had a voice lesson in almost 8 months and he put me immediately at ease, and we jumped right into vocalizing and songs. Loved it and looking forward to more!

I have taken lessons from Steve since the beginning of 2014. I took lessons when I was a little girl and had not played much since then. Steve has taken the time to get to know my capabilities, interests and reasons for coming back to the piano. Although he uses standard piano instruction books, he has been able to structure lessons and take home assignments that fit me. I especially like his focus on music theory, technique and how the notes and chords in the piece come together to create the piece. I have a busy schedule and Steve is organized and flexible when I am not able to come to class due to travel. He puts the onus on me to practice which is entirely appropriate for an adult coming back to piano. I would recommend Steve for instruction, particularly for self-motivated adults.

I am easy going and I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus & can have fun doing it.
I utilize various methods , which is determined by the students learning style & needs, so this can change as time goes on
(not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (& continue to do) extensive research into materials available for
Piano and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance & tools, and you practice, utilize & learn these tools, & off we go! The sky is the limit!!! :-D

I started classes March 2015 and can honestly say Bo is an excellent instructor. He is very patient especially with someone who had no experience. He has a diverse range of taste in music so if you don't want to pay classical he can teach you the blues, jazz, rock, etc. I would definitely recommend this instructor for anyone from no experience to experience.

Bo is very helpful and patient. He is well versed in a number of different styles, including classical, jazz, country, etc. He offers many useful tips and procedures based on his many years of experience. He adapts his teaching style to the needs of the student. I have made huge advancements in the 4 months that I have been taking lesson. I'm excited to see what the future holds. Highly recommended.

Mr. Bo was incredible. Hes patient, kind, funny, and teaches in a way you can really grab onto. He has really inspired me to be better at the piano than i would be able to be. (Im startling later in life at 33)

My lesson was only an hour but he stuck around much longer just talking, sharing music stories, and laughing with my family. He left my house leaving me inspired and motivated.

I cant imagine a better person to teach you or your child the piano.
