Tanya O.

Schnecksville, PA

About Tanya

Performing has been a lifelong endeavor for Tanya in every field from chorus, musical theatre to the operatic stage. A veteran of many choral ensembles, Tanya has had the privilege of performing with Steven Sametz, Greg Funfgeld, Steven Lord and many more. Upon earning her Bachelor of Music in Music Education and Performance from Moravian College in Bethlehem, Tanya moved to Boston to complete her Masters in Vocal Performance at The Boston Conservatory.

Tanya has studied with some wonderful teachers such as Monique Phinney (The Boston Conservatory), Ruth Drucker (formerly of The Peabod
y Conservatory) and coaches including Michael Strauss of New England Conservatory. Master class experiences have allowed her the opportunity to sing for opera legend Nico Castel, Sondra Kelly and others.

I believe a key part of learning to sing is being excited by the material and the techniques. I aim to make learning fun and have students feel successful at every lesson.

*** Lesson Details ***
Every lesson is approached based on the individual student's needs, goals and desires. Whether you are trying to sound better in a choir, audition for a role or school or just want to see how far you can go - I can help!

In each lesson, I incorporate range expanding warm up exercises, sight reading and vocal selection development. I believe that singing is 99% breathing and in order to be successful, we will also study how breath works and how to make the most of it.

Over time and with consistent practice, I will help each student become a better musician, begin expanding the student's vocal range and flexibility and learn some great new selections of various styles!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Baby Grand Piano

*** Specialties ***
I believe that good singing is rooted in a well rounded understanding of how the vocal mechanism works - whether it is singing opera, fold songs, church hymns or broadway.

Thomas W.

Downingtown, PA

I have been singing with barbershop quartets, classical choral groups, and contemporary a cappella groups for four decades. I teach the classical approach to the voice, which can be adapted to any style of singing you choose.

About Thomas

Thomas J. W. is an active music teacher, composer, adjudicator, and clinician in the greater Philadelphia area. He has over fifteen years experience as a concert band director, marching band director, jazz improvisation instructor, choral director, private instructor, and marching drill writer. His directing career has included small rural band programs, small metro programs, large high-achieving suburban programs, and non-profit youth bands. In addition to his band compositions, he also has over forty unpublished vocal arrangements to his credit, most written for use with collegiate men's a c
appella groups.

Thomas has a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education from The Pennsylvania State University. He holds a teaching certificate in the states of Pennsylvania and New Jersey and has taught at the secondary level in both states. In addition to both instrumental and choral ensembles at Penn State, Thomas was a student leader in the Penn State Blue Band and a member of the brass section of the Cadets of Bergen County Drum and Bugle Corps in 1993 and 1994. He served as an Associate Director of the Warren Junior Military Band of Youngstown, Ohio from 1995 to 2005. He also served as a visual staff member for the renowned North Penn Marching Knights of Lansdale, PA for one season in 2004.

He is a current adjudicator with Cavalcade of Bands. He is a member of MENC, PMEA, NJMEA, ASCAP, CASA, Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, and the National Band Association. He appeared in the Marquis Who's Who Among American Educators in 2004 and 2005, an honor rarely bestowed upon teachers, as students who appear in the Who's Who Among American High School Students must nominate them. He currently is a music teacher at the Center for Performing and Fine Arts of the PA Leadership Charter School in West Chester, PA and resides in Downingtown, PA with his wife and two sons.

Thomas will happily work with students on the autism spectrum or students with ADD.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are tailored to the needs and interests of each student. If a student is involved in school music ensembles, we will work with their lesson books from school in addition to material outside of the books, including SmartMusic, Noteflight, and teacher-created materials. We will focus on building proper tone production and individual technique - something that often is difficult to learn in a large ensemble setting.

I am capable of starting a beginner student on any band instrument including percussion, any classical string instrument (violin, viola, cello, string bass), and piano. I can begin a student on drum set and work with them through their first method book, but I would then recommend they find a specialized drum set teacher after a period of six to twelve months.

For advanced students, I work from selected conservatory etude books on developing advanced skills and can work with students on audition pieces for honors bands/orchestras or college auditions.

My lessons are a half-hour once a week, with the option of working for 45 minutes or 60 minutes.

*** Specialties ***
music, band, orchestra, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, trumpet, french horn, trombone, euphonium, tuba, violin, viola, cello, string bass, piano, Percussion
classical, jazz improvisation

Suzanne is definitely an amazing teacher. She always works with you and doesn't leave you hanging. She pushes you but not to much that you get uncomfortable. She's great! Definitely would recommend her to others.

Angela W.

Lancaster, PA

An experienced vocal teacher for over 10 years I teach students of all experience levels and ages! I offer beginner to advanced voice lessons for students interested in classical, operatic, Broadway and popular music. I try to provide my students the opportunity to practice a wide range of skills. My goal as a teacher is to specifically designed each individual lesson to help the student achieve their particular goals as an artist, performer, and musician. I look forward to working with you!

About Angela

Hello, my name is Angela W. I am a fun-loving and encouraging voice teacher who has years of experience working with children. I began my musical education at the age of 10 years old performing in choirs and taking voice lessons. Since that time I have been performing professionally in various theatres up and down the east coast and have had the opportunity to perform as a featured soprano in venues all over the world, including the York Minster Cathedral and with the Varna Choir of Bulgaria. I received my Vocal Performance degree from Charleston Southern University, and then moved to Lancast
er to perform professionally at American Music Theatre, 8 years ago and fell in love the area. I have been teaching privately for the last 5 years with a lot of success and am looking to continue to build my studio by taking on more private students in Lancaster County and surrounding areas.

I am a Charleston Southern University graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Vocal Performance, Summa Cum Laude. I have held various titles as a part of the Miss SC Organization and placed 1st runner-up as well as won overall talent in the 2006 competition. From there I went on to hold the title of Miss South Carolina Sweetheart 2006, where I won the Pat Musk Overall Talent Award in the Miss National Sweetheart Competition. I have many years of pageant and professional performing experience, have performed and auditioned in NYC, so I feel comfortable helping students in any various avenues from pageant and audition preparation to perfecting performance technique. I am a avid song writer and have produced and recorded two cover CDs that I have successfully sold at a number of professional theatres and online. I am also a member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and have two Regional NATS Awards.

I offer beginner to advanced voice lessons for students interested in classical, operatic, Broadway and popular music. I try to provide my students the opportunity to practice a wide range of skills when learning music. My goal as a teacher is to specifically designed each individual lesson to help the student achieve their particular goals as an artist, performer, and musician.

Voice students will learn exercises to practice good breath control, posture, and diction, all of which form the foundations of good singing.  Students will be expected to practice these exercises outside of lessons, prior to practicing vocal literature, as to develop good singing habits.  About fifty percent of lesson time will be dedicated to technique, and the other fifty percent will be dedicated to learning vocal pieces. These practices will enhance muscle coordination and breath control when singing, helping to enhance and improve pitch, timbre, expression and vocal range.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home studio is equipped with keyboard and guitar, as well as a sizable repertoire of classical, broadway and popular music. I am more than happy to help students find any music they may need for lessons that is not already in my library and also can recommend my favorite websites where music may be easily found. I also own a portable keyboard that I use for out-of-studio voice students.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a portable keyboard for voice students, but I strongly recommend that voice students record their lessons for reference during practice.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in musical theatre, jazz, and classical music (arias and art songs), but I am comfortable with a wide array of singing literature, as I believe that the technical foundations of good singing remain constant, regardless of the genre. I also have performed in various genres thru my professional career including, pop, contemporary, jazz, musical theatre, classical and country.
