Heather L.

Saint Augustine, FL

About Heather

More important than my conservatory education and my experience as an educator and a performer is my passion for teaching music and acting and my undying belief that anyone can learn to be a musician and an actor. I'm currently available to teach lessons in my own St. Augustine home studio, and online around the globe.

I'm a graduate of Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey and a winner of its merit scholarship.
After performing with the New York and Royal Philharmonics, the New Jersey and Virginia Symphonies, the American Boy Choir and the internationally renowned opera star
, Andrea Bocelli, studying opera and piano at Westminster Choir College and performance art and improvisational acting at East Carolina University in North Carolina, and appearing in shows and pageants across the east coast, I found my life's work in 2003 when I began teaching music.

I've successfully taught hundreds of different students since 2003, from 5-year-olds with special needs, to middle-aged professional opera singers, from a linguistics professor in Saudi Arabia, to a 65-year-old doctor of music. I've created and led a workshop about singing called, "The Whole Body Singer". I've written dozens of articles about music and music education for the blog at TakeLessons.com.

My extensive knowledge of the voice has encouraged and empowered hundreds of singers and prepared many of them to win competitions, pageants and auditions, as well as roles in operas and musicals.
Having both taught myself piano and received formal training at a conservatory has prepared me to teach almost anyone how to play.
The intensive training and education that I received at Westminster Choir College in songwriting, music theory and sight reading has benefited my students at every level.
My current work as singer and keyboardist in the acoustic rock duo, Timberwood, has strengthened my knowledge of a broad range of styles and genres. I have a strong commitment to continuing my education. That's why I recently (2014) studied songwriting online with the Berklee College of Music in Boston.

In the lessons that I teach, I'm flexible, positive and encouraging. While I want my students to have fun and love music, not dread it, I expect hard work and persistence. I am caring, patient, nurturing, and compassionate. In piano lessons, I usually allow the student to choose a piece with which to warm up and then move on to technique and repertoire. In voice lessons, I usually warm up the singer and discuss technique and sight singing before focusing on song choices. Joan Frey Boytim wrote a book for voice that I like to use, and I like the Estelle Liebling exercises for the more advanced singer. Hanon exercises are a big part of my piano curriculum, and I enjoy the Bastien and Alfred books for young and old. I have used completely random songs pulled out of a piano bench and a karaoke CD for kids. I will use almost anything I can get my hands on if it means effectively teaching music.
Acting lessons consist of exercises and games that apply learned concepts, and monologue and audition coaching. Parents are always welcome to observe lessons quietly.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide an acoustic guitar to bring to voice lessons. I expect my piano students to have a piano, an organ or a keyboard.

***Home Studio Equipment***
In my home studio, my students will have access to an acoustic guitar, an electronic keyboard, an acoustic piano and PC audio recording.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical, pop and musical theater singing, classical and pop/rock/chordal style piano, and sightreading, including solfege syllables. I enjoy using Estelle Liebling as my voice method and Hanon for piano technique. I have coursework in jazz and pop theory and songwriting from Westminster Choir College. Teaching special needs individuals is also one of my specialties, and one that I highly enjoy. I have coursework in Meisner technique and experience in both theatre acting and musical theatre.

Heather Lanza has quite simply been a wonderful teacher. As an adult student and an experienced guitarist I was slightly apprehensive regarding vocal instruction. I have been trying to teach myself to sing for 15 years now to no such avail and thought of myself as a hopeless case. From day one she made me feel comfortable and confident that my voice is another instrument that can very well be learned! She draws from a wealth of knowledge and experience to mold a very personal lesson each time I come in. The whole experience has been fun and enjoyable but most importantly has produced results. If you are sitting on the fence regarding taking lessons as I was I will tell you that I am very happy I finally decided to try it out. I trust you will be too!

Logan D.

Jacksonville, FL

About Logan

I have been teaching and helping people on this musical journey since January 2011. it pretty much started out with me just helping friends become better artists and better people. I enjoyed helping so much that I thought it would be a good idea to share the knowledge even more so I branched out through takelessons.com. I can teach beginner and intermediate levels in guitar, piano, ukulele, and music theory.

Gene D.

Palm Coast, FL

About Gene

I am a professional guitarist, singer, songwriter, recording artist and instructor. Between both live performance and teaching, I have over 35 years of experience.

I teach lead/scales, rhythm, chords, keys, finger picking, slide guitar, alternative tunings, music theory, techniques, songs, improvising and lots, lots more, with a very strong focus on creativity and songwriting in any styles/genres on acoustic or electric guitars.

I also part time teach harmonica and mandolin.

Students/customers appreciate my friendly and sincere personality, abilities, passion, and patience. They also
love our jam sessions, among many other things.

Lessons are weekly, bi-weekly, and/or monthly. Monday through Friday. Lesson and reference materials are all free.

My top student won 1st place in Guitar Player Magazine's 2006 Guitar Hero Contest. Many of my other students pass auditions, win talent contests, form bands, and become performers and recording artists or are simply happy to just sit at home and strum some chords and sing some songs alone.

I value and appreciate each and every student. I like and I want to see all of my students happy and smiling. Give me a chance to prove all of this to you; actions speak louder than words.

Please call to set up an appointment to meet me and check out the studio and judge for yourself. Experience the difference! Don't Wait! Call Now!

Angelia D.

Palm Coast, FL

About Angelia

At an early age my parents discovered that piano was a great way for me to learn and focus. Since my first encounter with a private lesson I have stayed in lessons with different teachers wherever I moved to. In college I was in the music program at Rollins College. I emerged from Rollins with a wealth of knowledge and a hunger to pass the information on to other so that they can enjoy music in every aspect of their life.

The ability to give each student and each song a unique individualistic approach that gives life a song, a lyric, or a beat that will live on in them forever. No matter wh
at you want to learn, music is a great place to start.
