About Akiyla M.

Music is my eudemonia, as well as, my asylum. I have come to personally know and enamor its therapeutic benefits. It has inspired me to develop personally and academically. I have a bachelors in music and a masters in music therapy from Florida State University. I have experience teaching all ages and find unique and innovative ways to speak the language of you, to help you meet your desired goals as a developing musician. During my undergraduate year I proudly served as the following leadership positions in my 80 plus concert choir as the President, Vice President, soprano section and assistant section leader. I am also a sister of the cherish sisterhood Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity inc. Music is my life, I have no doubts that together we can create majesty to the beautiful art of music!

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to have fun while still incorporating discipline. All students will learn different styles and techniques from various styles of music to expand their musical talents and knowledge. Even if your focus is classical music, you can still expect to learn some jazz, pop, etc. Students can also expect to work on breathing exercises, diction, basic piano, basic guitar, sight reading, ear training, proper singing techniques as well as the anatomy of the throat. After a few months students will see tremendous improvements in the areas mentioned above as well as gain more confidence, individuality, creativity, adoration for the art and be able to execute their vocal instrument efficiently and beautifully!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have voice books for soprano singers, a piano, and a guitar. I require students to provide their own voice books (if I require them for your particular session), a notebook, and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
Classical-Spirituals, Opera, Romantic, Baroque, etc.
Contemporary

My 10 year old daughter really enjoyed her singing lessons with Akiyla. She is now singing with more confidence. We decided to continue her singing lessons with Akiyla for a few more months.

She’s really nice and patient. And she can really help you find your range, she also doesn’t point out what you’re ‘bad’ at, but points out the great things you can already do and what you can work on to achieve your goal and then some.
