    Tyanna W.

    Raleigh, NC

    About Tyanna

    Music is one of the biggest, most important things in my life! I love how music allows me to express myself. A lot of joy is brought to people through music. I strive to change lives for the better through singing and teaching others how to be great singers!

    I have been teaching for about 7 years, but performing for 20. As a performer, I believe I am able to provide insight from both a teacher's and an artist's point of view. I have been in the same position as my students so I am able to relate.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    In my studio, you will find a very relaxed environment. While
    I am strict when it comes to proper technique, I believe in encouragement and CONSTRUCTIVE criticism. You will not leave my studio feeling unaccomplished or discouraged.

    I create my own curriculum based on the needs of each student. All of my students will be introduced to music theory, ear training, and sight signing.

    One thing I like to also focus on is audition etiquette. Learning your music is only half, the battle. Proper preparation for an audition sets you apart from the rest!

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    I have two performance spaces. Upstairs, you will find a smaller rehearsal space with an upright piano and seating for parents. Downstairs, you will find a larger rehearsal space. This space set up for larger rehearsals and includes: A drum set, Mics, a sound system, guitars, and a keyboard. My downstairs studio is reserved for students who are preparing for recording, or rehearsing with a live band.

    *** Specialties ***
    specialize in theatrical singing

Each lesson will be comprised of a vocal warm-up, vocalizing exercises, ear-training, music theory, and singing. I will include a little history and diction when needed. When you study with me you will leave with the ability to sing any type of music of your choosing. I will infuse each student with my own passionate spirit for music. Lets sing!

    Courtney B.

    Durham, NC

    specialized lesson based on individual voice and musical interest with a large focus on breathing and vocal technique

    About Courtney

    I was born in Heidelberg, Germany, but raised in Fayetteville, NC. I started singing at 3, playing the clarinet at 11, writing/composing at 12, recording at 15 and arranging at 16. I attended North Carolina Central University and earned my Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies Vocal Performance in May 2010 and my Master of Music in Jazz Studies Arranging and Composition. During my tenure, I had the opportunity to work with artist such as Branford Marsalis, Joey Calzerrado, Geri Allen, Carmen Lundy, Antonio Hart, and Nnenna Freelon as well as traveled to Toronto, the British Virgin Islands, NY,
    and Indiana to name a few destinations. I now perform R&B, Jazz, and Hip Hop music locally under the moniker "Coey Rochele" as well as in my group "1801", and write/arrange for special events and other local artist.

    I focus on giving my student tools that they can use to in real world experiences...whether that is on a larger scale such as a show or small one like in church. We deal heavily with developing proper vocal technique, but I also give much attention to performing techniques and the art of delivering a lyric.

    *** Lesson Details ***
    As a teacher, I like to provide a comfortable place to learn, but I do expect my students to do the work that I have assigned them. I like to make sure the lessons are as personalized as possible, so I spend the first lesson getting to know the student a bit personally, their musical aspirations and current musical abilities. For the first 3 lessons, I give special focus to correct breathing. Breathing, when it comes to singing, is fundamental, and for most people quite difficult to pick up on because it requires you to pay attention to an area that you normally do not. We also deal with tone production and vocal health. By the 4th lesson, we add on vowel placement and diction as well as basic music theory ( if the student does not know how to read music.) After the first 3 months, a general concept of proper breathing, diction, and tone production are established firmly. A student will also be aware of basic performance etiquette.

    *** Studio Equipment ***
    piano and mirror

    *** Travel Equipment ***
    Students must have piano or FULL (88 keys) keyboard if I come to their home. I will provide everything else needed for lesson.

    *** Specialties ***
    My degree emphasized jazz, but I have experience and am proficient in classical, gospel, r&b, and Broadway genres as well.

    "What can I say about Courtney? Beautiful person. Beautiful instrument. She has, hands down, one of the most amazing voices I have ever heard in my life. She knows her instrument intimately and intricately. Courtney's ear is amazing. Her ability to nail a melody, improvise it and navigate through changes is nothing less than astounding. She is truly a gifted, well versed and educated musician. Her composition and arranging speak to that as well. I was in awe as I sat and listened to her compositions at her graduate recital. Simply amazing. Great musician. Great person."
