Michael M.

Pennington, NJ

Singing is an extension of speech. Good breath support is needed. Vowels and consonants are two best friends for the singer. Even though I am classically trained as a singer, I have explored successfully other vocal genres like popular and jazz. Though a singer, I am first a music educator. Most times, I learn along with my students and I enjoy what I do. Rudiments of singing are taught right away and reinforced with each lesson. Beside vocal technique, the student is exposed to various genres of music as well as singing music the student wants to sing. Technology is used for recording, listening, and performance.

About Michael

Born and raised in New Jersey, I have been involved with music for many years. The instruments that I play include Trumpet, French Horn, Handbells, Organ, Voice, and Piano. I received my formal education at Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA, which is where I earned a B.A. degree with Honors in Music. In order to obtain my Honors, I chose to develop elementary lessons on Chinese folk music. In my Junior year of college, I performed a dual media recital in both Voice and Piano, and for my Senior year recital, I focused on giving a Vocal performance. These recitals demonstrated the musical t
alent and techniques that I had developed throughout my experience at college. In addition to my musical experiences in college, I have also learned about various pedagogical approaches through both my vocal studies as well as my studies on the keyboard. There is always more than one approach to teaching musical concepts! As a musician, I have performed in both the Bethlehem/Allentown area and the central New Jersery area. In addition, I have sung as a member of the Princeton Pro Musica and sat as a member on the executive board of the Princeton Girlchoir. These experiences have enhanced my professional insight as a musical instructor today. At present, I am a teacher in the classroom, an organist at a local Presbyterian church, and a private piano instructor. Overall, I thoroughly enjoy seeing my students grow and develop as musicians.

*** Lesson Details ***
My instruction correlates with the age, the musical background, and the public/private school music curriculum of the student. Each lesson is a special musical vignette in the sense that it is a unique learning time for the student. It is important for the student to be motivated by the material that they are given and to have a full understanding of the concept(s) that were taught in the lesson. Above all other reasons, it is most important for the student to enjoy their piano lessons and want to come back the next week. Therefore, it is my job as the instructor to inspire them to practice and benefit from each and every lesson. Whether it be vocal or piano instruction, each lesson consists of fun warm-ups, interesting technical exercises, and repertoire of all sorts. What the student learns in 3-6 months depends upon the motivation of the student as well as my ability to teach what the student needs to know in order to achieve their goals as a pianist and/or vocalist. Regarding my methods of instructing piano students, I use the Middle C method for players of all levels. Those who are more advanced use triads as well. My overall goal as a teacher is to work with my students and give them the skills that are necessary to play music that they enjoy.

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in living room; 2 pianos (C2 Yamaha and Steinway upright); organ

*** Specialties ***
Middle C Piano Method using instructional materials of the Bastien's and Alfred Publications

Michael is a great teacher. He focuses on understanding of concepts. For more fluent play we always need to practice a lot, but if we do not understand the concepts behind musical notation, we do not even know where to begin. He is also very encouraging and guides us out of mistakes in a way that the logic sticks. Highly recommended - you will enjoy learning with him

Lessons with Mike Mraz was a Christmas present from my son, Andrew. I enjoy singing, yet have never had occasion to study music or to take private lessons. Mike helped me clarify my goals: breath control, vocal mechanics, reading music and having fun. He graciously sent me some primer materials and located sheet music for several of my favorite Broadway show tunes. Our five 45-minute sessions together were both instructive and enjoyable. As I approach age 70, I can check "work with a voice coach" on my "Bucket List." Kudos for Mike!

James is knowledgeable about the subject and has a technique to teaching that makes it fun and enjoyable to learn and encourages you to practice. His process is methodical as well as informative but he also brings in the student's technique to make sure you're developing properly when it comes to applying what is taught theoretically.

Jimmy is very locked in as an instructor.

I struggled with some of his instructions at first but he will push and guide you in the direction you need to go. With this guidance comes exercises physical as well as verbal. He will paint pictures so you understand your instrument better. Then use exercises so you can understand what those pictures actually are.

He understands all his crafts very well and wants you to be able to do the same.

Jane is an excellent vocal instructor. I have two daughters ages 8 and 9 currently taking lessons with her. I myself am a singer and took lessons for years at Westminster Choir College. I am familiar with the typical approaches to vocal instruction and am very impressed with the novel techniques Jane employs when teaching, particularly children. Both of my daughters find Jane to be engaging, entertaining, and energetic. They always look forward to their time with her and typically think of their weekly lessons as one of the week’s highlights. Jane is very patient with my girls, taking the time to reinforce concepts and present the same information in alternate ways to ensure my girls understand and appreciate what is being taught. It is clear that Jane has a strong passion for teaching and singing, two essential components to being a top-tier vocal instructor. I highly recommend Jane to anyone seeking an instructor who possesses a diverse toolbox for teaching and is herself a very accomplished vocalist.

My 12 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Jane following 3-4 years of singing in various choral groups, and the experience has been nothing short of fantastic. Jane has done a great job of teaching and/or locking down the fundamentals of singing - from breathing, to posture, to how to practice effectively - while also keeping the learning fun and making it feel like it is not work. My daughter has deepened her love of singing while learning a great deal at the same time. I can't recommend Jane enough!

Katie is an outstanding voice instructor. I began taking lessons with her about two years ago and I can already see a big improvement in my vocal strength and overall skill. She is positive, patient, and thorough with her teaching. She is passionate and always gives 100% in her lessons.

I highly recommend Katie to anyone with a desire to improve their skills in singing (acting, and/or auditioning).
