With years of experience live and in the studio, I specialize in teaching students theory, chords and song structures. Students will progress quickly by learning to play chords and scales, and improvise. I balance traditional sight reading with playing by ear and following chord charts. I am the perfect teacher for someone looking for a new approach to learning piano, and/or someone looking to play in a band or accompany their singing. I have played in the studio for Katy Perry and live on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Emily has been a god send ! As a professional and working recording artist in NYC... I was in need of a vocal coach who catered to my style. She taught me control and changed my voice completely. The best teacher I've had by far!

Emily isn't just a great singing teacher- she also gave me the support, confidence and knowledge I needed to turn my musical ideas into completed songs for the first time.

Emily Carlstrom is a total badass. I've taken a handful of voice lessons with her. They were so simple, yet so extremely helpful and motivating. She really knows how to listen and that makes her a great friend, artist and teacher.
