About Brenda B.

***BB Studio is extending its online lesson hours to meet you where you are! Starting a new musical hobby and practicing wellness or receiving life or organization coaching is a great way to combat boredom, regain control of your life and stimulate the brain!*** Hello, my name is Brenda! It is nice to meet you. I have been teaching private lessons and coaching for over a decade and hold two music degrees and two teaching certifications in music (NJ) and ESL (international). I obtained my B.M. in Music Education from William Paterson University, where I was a voice major and flute/piano double minor, my Master of Music in Performance with the Opera Institute at Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, and my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Northwestern University with high honors. Additionally, I am a clinically certified HeartMath facilitator, an internationally certified Life Coach and NLP Practitioner from the American Board of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (ABNLP) and hold US national certifications as a Mindfulness-Informed Professional (CMIP) and Certified Trauma Professional (CTP). For music, I primarily teach voice, flute, piano, music theory, ear training, and music history, with almost 20 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. I also work on audition and performance preparation, speech/accent work, and more. I am constantly studying different teaching methods to develop a custom program that best fits your learning styles and incorporates what you already know with what you need to learn to achieve your goals. Whether you want to play flute, sing, act, or learn to play piano, I am here to help you become the best musician you can be. Classically trained, I also work with musical theatre, pop, rock, and jazz styles. I can teach you the proper techniques, posture, and breathing necessary to perform to the best of your ability and teach you how to utilize your total lung capacity to extend phrasing length and dynamic range. I will also help you learn to read and write music. Together, we will keep a log to track your progress from lesson to lesson. This will also help you keep a record of the steps you are taking to obtain and achieve your goals and dreams. For life coaching, I will also design a program that meets your needs and goals. Together we can cover topics of your choice that include but are not limited to personal development, performance anxiety, career coaching, financial literacy, executive functioning skills, social thinking, relationships, boundaries, cognitive development, memory help, accent work, meditation, mindfulness, wellness, and more. I am always studying new methods and conducting research to broaden my experience and toolbox to share with you in your journey. *** Specialties *** Virtual Instruction Beginner students Senior & Retired students Students with special needs Performance techniques Audition preparation Speech techniques (public speaking, accent-reduction, voice-overs, etc.) Heart-Based Singing Bel Canto Technique Performance Anxiety Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) Guided Meditation Mindfulness HeartMath The Science of Wellness Life Coaching Cognitive Science Executive Functioning Career Exploration *if you need a particular time slot or one not listed on my availability, I will do my best to accommodate your needs* **All lessons will be scheduled and paid in advance with confirmation from both the student and instructor.
