Lauren L. Philadelphia, PA

About Lauren

I am a graduate of The University of The arts with a BA in music performance. The University of The Arts has allowed me to gain a reputable amount of performance and educational work. In my training at the University was able to concentrate on many styles of performance such as classical technique as well as Broadway and jazz. With that in mind, it is also important to stay current on today’s music as well. Music has allowed me to travel the world with various groups and perform with musicals greats like the Philly Pops, bassist Gerald Veasly and the great Bernard “Pretty “ Purdie. I have taught voice and piano for high school students entering college for music. My experience in teaching is not only with high school students but spans all ages. After completing college I continued

Lauren is the real deal. Point blank period. I initially signed up for singing lessons, but she has helped me with piano, music theory, and other skills as well. She has a much more wholesome approach for developing as an artist than simply a linear "sing these notes" type of lesson.

Lauren is a good balance of stern and silly. She has a great sense of humor, so I feel comfortable singing & playing for her (even if my skills are limited and sound like a dying horse). However, that doesn't mean you just goof around. She takes it very seriously and pushes you as a student. I couldn't recommend Lauren more.

Five stars.

About Mark

Learning music, especially at a young age, can have a positive impact in life. From simply playing music in the home to performing music for large audiences, the basic goal is the same: the enjoyment of being a proficient musician. I have written a bit about my experience and how I can use this to help you to become a great musician. I began studying music when I was 8 years old. My early lessons taught me not only about music but about music teaching. As a result of these experiences, I vowed to teach students music that is meaningful to them. Moving along, in high school I played in rock bands with my friends. I can never stress how important it is to play with other people. I always encourage my students to ...

Mark has been great! I don't fit easily into a student level because I have had some piano training before -- but not in a long time. He has picked up very quickly on my skill level and has been very good about letting me pick my own music and helping me to learn. I feel that I am progressing as fast--or eve faster--than I had hoped. I highly recommend him for piano!

Ryan is great at explaining all the physical details that go into great vocal performance. He listens to your singing with great detail and offers a fine-pointed critique.
Sandra H. Philadelphia, PA

Lessons consist of learning a solid vocal technique, and learning various repertoire from Broadway, pop, to classical. Also, performing skills will be incorporated, so that the singer feels comfortable acting the song as well. I strongly believe that singers must be actors, and that is what makes us different from instrumentalists. It is also a lot of fun! For children or adults who are willing, I also teach sight singing and spend some of the lessons time learning some basic reading skills.

She is a two time recipient of the Mario Lanza Award, and holds a B.M. degree in opera from the Philadelphia College of Performing Arts.

My son is 16 and has been taking lessons with sandra since November of 2014. Sandra not only focuses on singing techniques to build your support and vocal strength, but also helps with understanding sheet music and acting within a musical piece. She is extremely personable and friendly. She has helped my son expand his vocal range, and she taught him vocal techniques to use to develop his voice. My son does musical theatre, and Sandra has taken a significant amount time during each lesson to help him sing the songs comfortably and understand the acting stand point in each song. She is a great teacher for him.

My daughter is 14 years old and we needed some help with an acting role for her school musical. Sandra was wonderful, in a brief time she was able to help her understand that it is important to own the role. I feel as though my daughter came a long way. My daughter did get the role that she auditioned for in her High School play and she is only a freshman. Thanks very much Sandra!

I am a private student of Sandra’s and have been studying singing with her for two years. I decided to study with Sandra because I know that she has a lot of professional experience on stage. I am mainly interested in musical theater, and Sandra has helped me find suitable songs for my voice. She works on breathing and building a solid technique which one can rely on. She has also helped me to develop as an actor, so that I feel completely comfortable with performing. I would highly recommend her.
Katy A. Philadelphia, PA

I am a working, professional singer. While I am currently pursuing an opera career, I have plenty of experience in pop, jazz, musical theater and choral singing, and am very comfortable singing and teaching a variety of styles. I offer lessons in each of these styles. Students can choose to focus on one, or we can try a bit of everything! Lessons will consist of a series of breathing exercises and vocal warm-ups to address issues like range, tone, stamina, releasing tension, etc. I can also help singers with reading music and learning to sight-read. I have helped past students work towards auditions, upcoming school performances, preparing for open mic nights or other public performances, etc. Students can also work on singing while playing an instrument like the guitar or piano. ***For combined lessons, I recommend signing up for at least 45 minutes, as it is difficult to accomplish much in a 30 minute lesson when trying to learn both***

About Katy

I am a classically trained musician with experience studying jazz and pop. I have performed in a wide variety of musical genres such as opera, oratorio, big band, jazz, musical theater, pop, lots of choral experience, etc. Education: BM - Vocal Performance - East Carolina University, Greenville, NC, 2009 *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are all about you! I want to give you the skills necessary to make the kind of music you want. I use a variety of ear training methods, books, and techniques to help you grow as a musician. I never want my students to dread coming to their lessons. We can learn classical techniques or we can just have a good time learning to play your favorite pop music. It is my hope that after a few months you have gained confidence as well as the necessary skills

Katy has been giving piano lessons to my twin 5-year old daughters. They were nervous about starting lessons, but Katy put them at ease right away. She has a wonderful manner with young children. My daughters have progressed more quickly than I expected they would. They enjoy practicing on their own too, because they want to impress her! I am so thrilled that we found her.
