About Lia M.

*Background check documents available upon request*

I'm a vocalist, singer/songwriter, and producer with a Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree in Musical Theatre, and am currently coaching 20+ students of all ages and backgrounds in voice, piano, and songwriting. My experience, training, and creative approach help make the learning experience easy, stress free and fun. I always gear lessons towards each student's unique strengths, goals, and interests. Some get excited about writing their own song; others love classical pieces. While I ways give a holistic training, including new kinds of repertoire, ear training, theory or technique (depending on the subject), and creative exploration, we will also hone in on the things about music that make you (or your child) come alive.

A bit more about me: while obtaining my Bachelor's degree, I took regular voice lessons from one of the leading vocal pedagogy experts in the world: Mary Saunders Barton. I also studied various aspects of music and performance, such as the art of auditioning, and music theory. I spent 5 years performing in professional, regional musical theater productions, and am happy to work on auditions with my students. I currently work as a singer/songwriter, producer, and vocalists in my local area (Philadelphia), both gigging regularly and working in the studio. My songs have been featured on local radio (WXPN, ALT 104.5) and licensed to TV for potential use in their broadcasting (E!, MTV, PBS, Netflix, and more).

My daughter enjoyed working with Lia. She was patient, fun and helped build my daughter's confidence when she made mistakes and needed to try again. She was an absolute pleasure to work with!

LIa is the right fit for my high school student. My daughter has been taking classic piano lessons since 4 years old. She has been looking for an instructor who will allow her to develop her creative side.

Lia customizes her lessons and has reignited my daughters love of piano.

Thanks, Lia.

Both of my daughters love to sing. We signed up for lessons so they could learn their favorite pop songs; one of my daughters also took piano. They've learned how to hit notes easier and how to properly warm up; Lia is great at finding fun ways to keep them engaged while also still learning. The combination of piano and voice for my youngest has been really valuable. I highly recommend Lia for your lessons!
