Shayna E.

Warwick, RI

About Shayna

I'm a 27 year old voice teacher, graduating from Rhode Island College with a Bachelor's Degree in Musical Theatre Performance. I have been teaching voice for almost 4 years now and I couldn't be happier with my career! I love music, and I love being with children, so being a voice teacher is the best fit for me. I have participated in many theater companies in Rhode Island, most recently appearing as the lead female role in Rhode Island College's "Pippin". I have had ten years of vocal training with several voice teachers, so I know what it is like to be the student. Being a student for so lo
ng, I know what works and is helpful, and what doesn't work. I look forward to my lessons as a teacher, and I know you will look forward to our lessons too!

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a patient, easy going person and I like to make my students feel comfortable. Our lesson will always be FUN! It will also be productive. We will work on areas that the student wants to improve on, and I will offer constructive criticism, all with a positive outlook. I provide recitals for my students several times a year. You will have the chance to show family and friends what you have learned from our lessons!

During lessons, I like to focus on the students strengths', and I will find songs that highlight the students best qualities in their voice. Our lessons will start with warm-ups, and after your voice is ready to go, we will learn and practice songs that I have selected for you with your interests in mind. The songs that I choose will be from my vocal books and I will provide you with copies of the sheet music, and also a CD of the songs so you can practice in between lessons. As our lessons progress, you will be able to sing with a stronger, healthier voice and overall, just sound better!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a keyboard and I will bring that to our lessons. I will also provide the student with the music we study and a folder to keep it in.

*** Specialties ***
I have a lot of experience in musical theater singing. I love many styles of music, so I'm sure after finding out what you are interested in, I could find songs we can work on that you will love to learn and perfect!

Alaina C.

Oxford, MA

About Alaina

ABOUT ME

I began taking both voice and piano lessons at the age of 10, after years of sitting outside my older sisters' lessons and wishing to study music, myself. I fell in love with music at my very first lesson, and knew that it was what I would do with my life. I went on to attend New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, where I received my Bachelor of Music in vocal performance, and then onto Longy School of Music of Bard College, where I obtained my Masters in vocal performance and continued my piano studies as a secondary instrument. I am the co-owner of Calton Music Studio in Ox
ford and have experience teaching piano students ranging from 4-year-old beginners to experienced adults and voice students ranging from novices to professionals and conservatory-bound high school students.

LESSON DETAILS

First and foremost, I always strive to make lessons engaging, enjoyable, and gently challenging. Mastering something that you find difficult is one of the most rewarding aspects of music lessons, and I believe that all students are capable of surpassing their own expectations and surprising themselves with their abilities. I try to create a welcoming and creative learning environment where students will feel comfortable exploring new techniques and ways of thinking about music.

Musical literacy and a healthy technique are vitally important for both pianists and singers in any genre, and I hope to impart this to my students while helping them to discover the joy of music and performance. I tailor lessons to help each individual student reach his/her goals, and welcome all ages and levels into my studio.

STUDIO

My home studio has a grand piano and a seating/waiting area for parents and siblings.

STUDENT MATERIALS

I will provide reference books and other teaching materials that will be used in lessons. I expect my students to have a piano (or full-sized keyboard with 88 weighted keys, an attached pedal, and a proper bench) for home practice and to reimburse me for books to be used at home.

Exceptional!

My daughter started piano lessons at age 8 and switched to Alaina when she was 10. The growth has been exponential! Alaina is an incredibly talented musician and has a real skill for teaching. She is very gentle and patient, yet knows how and when to challenge a student. The music is engaging, interesting and makes learning fun. My daughter loves playing and continues to be inspired by Alaina's talents and passion. i would highly recommend Alaina without reservation!

Great insight!

Alaina was such a great teacher! She was my teacher my senior year of high school and was really helpful. She picked out pieces that really showed off my voice and helped me get in to a good music school. Now that I am in college, Alaina has because a great friend and mentor to me! I am really lucky to have found her as a teacher. :)

Mia R.

Norfolk, MA

Including warm-ups, repertoire, vocal technique, performance practice, breathing, phonation, pitch, diction, and musicality.

About Mia

I am a professional singer and actress with opera and musical theater credits. Singing is my passion! I love to sing, and I LOVE to teach others to sing! The human voice is the most natural instrument of all, and helping others to bring out the beauty of the natural instrument that lies within them is something to which I am very devoted. I like to make students feel comfortable and at ease in lessons, and you will find that I am very warm and friendly!

Every student is unique, with their own strengths, their own areas for improvement, and their own preference for certain styles of sing
ing. I can help you find what style makes your heart sing!

I have a broad range of credits, including the Broadway National Tour of Fiddler On The Roof with Theodore Bikel (Tzeitel understudy), and Off-Broadway in Fiorello (Marie) and The Rose Tattoo (Flora). Among my many regional credits are Oliver at the Chiswick Park Theater in Sudbury, MA (Nancy), Camelot with Noel Harrison at the North Shore Music Theater in Beverly, MA (Nimue/Guinevere understudy), and Is There Life After High School with Desi Arnaz, Jr. and Sharon Lawrence at the Burt Reynolds Theater in Jupiter, FL. I currently hold the post of Soloist at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Needham, and am a Guest Soloist for The Mother Church in Boston. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, and have received additional training with many renowned pedagogues, including mezzo-soprano Sondra Kelly, and coaches Arlene Shrut from the Juilliard School, Michelle Alexander with Boston Lyric Opera, and Roger Malouf with the Metropolitan Opera.

Mia is an awesome teacher and a fun person. She is vivacious, expressive and very engaged in learning about you, her student. I haven't been a student in a while and was totally excited by spending time with this lovely artist who clearly knows what she's doing.
I can't wait to go back! I learned so much and want to know more. This is exciting.

Acting · In studio
I've been taking classes with Mia for a year now, and she has been the best teacher anyone could ever dream of. I was terrified of trying acting for the first time, I thought because I was starting off late in the game I may be judged, or criticized, but as soon as Mia greeted me she made me feel as though I was immediately family. She is supportive, encouraging, and will give 110% at training you for any type of acting you wish to pursue! She even met with me for multiple classes per week before big auditions. I can proudly say I am now accepted and will be attending my first choice conservatory for a BFA in Contemporary Theater! Mia has the warmest, most beautiful heart of gold that I've ever seen. Thank you for absolutely everything you've done for me, Mia. I can't wait until you can see me in my shows!

Stan M.

Coventry, RI

Do you love to sing? Have you always wanted to learn? My three-step approach makes it easy and fun. You will learn powerful techniques for developing your voice-tone and ears. You will develop a killer repetoire of your favorite music. And you will learn valuable tips on stage-presence, confidence, and charisma.

About Stan

Hi! I am a private music instructor with a B.M. degree from Berklee College of Music and over 34 years' full-time experience in the field. I also have decades of experience as a professional jazz, rock, and theater musician. My teaching style is laid-back, gentle, informative, and very supportive. My focus is on enrichment and encouragement. I don't work with one-size-fits-all methods. Each lesson is customized to make the most of each student's own unique abilities and interests. I am very experienced in working with students of all ages, including very young children (ages 4 and up). I teach
real music -- students begin playing music they love almost from day-one. For example, many of my piano and guitar students pride themselves on learning to play the every song on Beatles One ... playing right along with the CD! Reading, playing by ear, improvisation, singing while you play ... there are so many ways to play and avenues to explore in music. Do you have a song or two in your heart. Contact me today!

Stan Has been my instructor for eight months. Bottom Line...terrific! He is a master of his craft and a really-really gifted teacher. I tried a number of teachers over the years and got discouraged. There are many alleged "Music Teachers " that cant read music! Stan is a Suma Cum Laude (that's #1 in the class) Honors graduate of Berkley School of Music in Boston! The real deal!!

I walk away from every lesson as excited as the first. I highly recommend Stan to my family and friends!

I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano and now I am thoroughly enjoying taking lessons from Stan. He's a very patient instructor who fills me with confidence. I look forward to my lesson every week and the time spent there just flies by so fast. Stan is very interesting and gives me a lot of information to help me understand music historically and in practice. He tailors his lesson to me. A great teacher! Thanks Stan!

John J.

Fall River, MA

I also believe there should be some time for experimental material and improvisation. Experimentalism is something I believe should be focused on as far as theoretical educational design. Creating an environment in which students are free to create on paper or on the spot (improvisation) is something I hold as a very important part of a well-rounded music education. I believe in Existentialism because we, as musicians, are always trying to understand the meaning and existence of music itself.

About John

I have adopted the philosopher Bennett Reimer’s beliefs. He believed in music for music sake. In other words: Music was an art-form to be admired and not always performance based. Reimer believed in music literacy and wanted every child to understand and know how to read basic music notation. Music is also an interpersonal and multicultural art-form designed to excite and engage all cultures. If you can link any and all subjects to music, you will be able to grasp more students. Knowing how sound waves are made and the history of the piano, is just as important as knowing and demonstrating sin
ging or playing instruments. My own philosophy on performance is, “Not only is it necessary, it is a necessity.”
