Take lessons from a Ph.D of music! Piano lessons are a wonderful way to encourage and develop a passion for music from an early age. They have also been the key to being the life of a party for hundreds of years! So if you're an adult interested in picking up a new hobby, or a parent looking for a fun new extracurricular activity for your child, these lessons are a great place to get started.

I’ve started both speaking voice and singing lessons with Lance. My primary goal was to speak with a less nasal voice. Lance does a great job of explaining what is happening mechanically when you produce sound with your voice, and how to manipulate your voice by manipulating muscles in your mouth/throat. He also gave me exercises to help me develop a feel for controlling these muscles, which have been helpful. I’ve only had 3 lessons so far, and I’ve already had someone tell my that my voice sounds significantly better / less nasal, so I’m very happy with the results Lance has helped me produce so far!

Lance is a fantastic teacher with a huge depth and breadth of musical knowledge. He has great content to guide you in your learning, but can just as easily spend a lesson diving deep into a specific topic you're interested in, be it technique, instrument care, theory, etc. Definitely recommend!

The Society for Music Theory promotes the development of and engagement with music theory as a scholarly and pedagogical discipline. We construe this discipline broadly as embracing all approaches, from conceptual to practical, and all perspectives, including those of the scholar, listener, composer, performer, teacher, and student. The Society is committed to fostering diversity, exclusivity, and gender equity in the field.
Barbershop Harmony Society
Aug 2008
It’s music in a very pure form created with nothing but human voices coming together to create a rich and satisfying texture that is pleasing to the ears and invigorating to the soul. Barbershop allows you to find your voice and be a part of creating something that is greater than the sum of its parts.
