- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate
I do enjoy teaching all age levels and have experience teaching anywhere from 5 to 65 years old. I currently teach group keyboard classes in an afterschool program in public schools in the Deer Valley District. In my lessons you will learn rhythm (so its okay if you don't naturally have rhythm!), sight reading, memorization, ear training, and much more. I help the students pick music at their skill level that they enjoy. Every week you will get excited as you see yourself improving!

Hello everyone! I've been singing since the age of 3 and performing since the age of 6. I am not only an experienced music teacher with a passion for music and teaching, but an experienced performer, and songwriter. I started performing at a young age with the Columbia School of Theatrical Arts, and as I grew older I studied different techniques such as speech level singing, classical, and even techniques from Brett Manning, one of the most amazing vocal coaches today who teaches artists such as Haley Williams from Paramore. I have experience performing many styles of music, and also was a voice major in college. The students I teach will benefit from my contemporary techniques, and can learn to sing in almost any style of music they choose.
*** Lesson Details ***
Do you want to learn how to sing your favorite song just like the artist? I can teach you the techniques! Or how about how to make a cover song your own based off of your own unique voice? We can work together to find, develop, and build the amazing qualities that you have in your voice. I will not only work on aspects of what you would like to improve on with your voice personally, but I will make an individual plan for you that will dramatically improve your voice! I will work with you individually to strengthen any weakness you may have in a fun environment. I am fun, encouraging and motivating! When asking students to do any vocal exercises, I will explain what the certain exercise does to improve your voice so that you can have the knowledge you need to be a good vocalist, and not just know how to sing properly. You will learn many things in lessons and what I teach you will vary on where you are vocally.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a keyboard, CD, Boom box, music sheets, etc. Students do not need to provide anything.
*** Specialties ***
Speech level singing method, classical techniques, singing success, various genres including: pop, blues, contemporary, and musical theatre. I utilize the different techniques I have learned through proper classical training, but mix it with contemporary methods I have learned from speech level singing methods.
Taught group piano lessons for kids after school in the Deer Valley district, taught group adult classes inside of community centers, as well as taught private instruction on piano.
I was the music teacher for ages K-8th grade. I taught general Music Education, and put on the schools productions (teaching singing, acting, dancing, etc).
Lynzi is professional and doesn’t waste any time getting started, while at the same time keeping things light and fun. I highly recommend her as an instructor!
Super great full and excited!
Lynzi was very patient with me, which I appreciate. She explained every detail and made sure I understood. I loved working with her. Very nice.
Lynzi is a passionate and fun teacher that will give you all the tools you need to improve your vocal abilities! First she'll find your range and work out a warm-up routine, which she'll fine-tune as necessary, that will challenge you on different vowels, scales, jumps, crescendos/decrescendos, etc. She's also very helpful with body/jaw relaxation and breath support techniques that will help you develop your optimal tone and control. She's eager to work with you closely on songs and help you bring out your own personal flair in your performances and continually encourage your musical growth. Overall, she's helped with my progress and confidence a lot! A++ Read More
Lynzi is awesome! She is very good at explaining what we are doing and why it is we are doing it. She is very patient and kind. Very easy to work with! Can't wait to go back for more lessons.
I have been taking lesson's with Lynzi for three weeks now. Lynzi is a great singing teacher! She listens to your struggles and makes tips/suggestions on ways to make it better. In addition, even when I'm not at a lesson I know she is only a text or call away if I need help or guidance. In our singing lessons, she pushes me to try new things- things that may be uncomfortable at first. She doesn't get frustrated or mad if you miss a note/ can't get it. In the past three weeks, I have learned so much from her and about me.+ Read More
We love Lynzie! My daughter has been going to her for about 6 weeks now and I've already noticed a difference in her voice. She makes the whole experience fun and exciting!
Daughter had fun and exactly what we were looking for. Lynzi knowledgeable and went right into action with lessons and respectful. Thanks
Micah feel comfortable at her first lesson. She is excited to continue.
My first lesson was spot on. Lynzi has a good grasp of the fundamentals and I am confident she will get me on the right path. Easy to work with and takes a genuine interest in her student's success.
Lynzi has been giving me lessons since August and I have improved a lot. When I started with her I was struggling with rhythm and tempo but once we started she made everything seem so easy. She explains everything so well and makes sure you understand. I have had many piano teachers but Lynzi has been the best piano teacher that I have had so far. Lynzi cares about the lesson and the person taking it.+ Read More
As an older student with some musical experience, Lynzi did a great job of targeting what I need to work on to improve my voice. I've got exercises to work with at home and I'm excited for my second lesson. I was nervous for all of about 2 seconds; Lynzi quickly put me at ease.+ Read More
Lynzi is so patient with my daughter and brings out her natural talent and confidence. We absolutely love her!
My 12-yr old daughter had a great experience with Lynzi. Lynzi spoke to my daughter with respect and provided age-appropriate instruction and practice. This was my daughter's first experience with private lessons, so we were both a little unsure of what to expect, but Lynzi exceeded our expectations. As a parent, I especially liked how she would recap for me what happened during the lesson and what my daughter should be working on before next time. Her in-home environment was also pleasant, safe and comfortable. After the first lesson, I felt very comfortable leaving my daughter there for her lessons. The entire experience has been a pleasant one!+ Read More
A good start for our first lesson. I feel comfortable with Lynzi, and look forward to future sessions.
Lynzi spent enough time to get to know me and understand what I hoped to get from taking singing and piano lessons. We made a plan for the future, and got started right away. Since I am taking both piano and voice, I feel I may need to go to 60 minute lessons in the future.+ Read More
Lynzi is great and very professional. Our daughter feels very comfortable with her and is receiving some great vocal training!
Ms. Lynzi is so amazing. She makes everything so easy when working with you. Over a short amount of time I've gotten better with my piano AND with my singing. If she could she could get you to a broad way show. She is just the most amazing teacher. If you choose her your making the best decision.+ Read More
We absolutely love Lynzi. I have seen such a difference in my son in a very short time. His confidence has shot through the roof and under Lynzi's guidance, Josh auditioned and was chosen to sing in his school's talent show.
Lynzi is great at getting Josh to channel all his energy into his singing and getting him to focus and follow directions. I highly recommend her!!!
Lynzi is great with my daughter. Very flexible with her schedule and really likes working with kids. I would highly recommend her for lessons.
My daughter has been taking singing lesson with Lynzi for a few months now and things couldn't be better. My daughter was wanting to improve her range and tone for musical auditions at her high school and Lynzi has not only helped her grow but has also given her confidence. She ended up auditioning and making the musical... Not just the chorus but a solo part!! We are so pleased and happy to have Lynzi in our lives and we recommend her to everyone! Lynzi is an outstanding teacher and mentor.+ Read More
My daughter loves her lessons with her teacher and she has so much fun.
And if we can't make a lesson she is very understanding.
she's basically just super awesome
I have never gotten voice lessons before now, and I have been getting lessons from Lynzi for about a month now. I have learned so many things in such a short amount of time! I'm more confident with my voice than I was before I started, and Lynzi has a huge part of helping me with that. She's a great teacher who is an extremely patient and nice individual. I couldn't ask for a better instructor!
