I have been teaching voice for over 15 years, both in classroom and private lesson settings. I hold a Bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis in performing arts (such as musical theater) and a Master's in early childhood and elementary education, but I believe anyone can be taught to at least carry a tune-so all ages and skill levels are welcome. I fervently believe that a solid foundation in music theory and technique goes a long way, but I also know from experience that choosing to sing the types of music you love is essential to successful learning. I have been trained in classical voice, musical theater, and church music, but my passion is leading worship in the church and singing music of an acoustic folk or country style. As a professional musician I have done all of these styles (and more) many times over the course of my career. What that means is I have the experience to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be! Whether you have always dreamed of learning or are

I am currently a Doctoral candidate at The Juilliard School. I have been teaching students range from 7 years-old to people who are in their 70s. Helping students from different back ground, age group, and levels of playing has been very rewarding. I help my students preparing for their recitals, competitions, all state exams, or simply learning a new piece of music. I believe in tailoring teaching to each student's needs. Looking forward to working on and exploring cello playing with you!

Ms. Xu is an excellent teacher- very patient, kind, and experienced. I have had cello lessons before but I was in need of an "upgrade". She really helped my technique, sound, and musicianship overall. I highly recommend her without a hesitation!

My son is thrilled with YiQun's expertise, musicality, and useful tips and exercises. He was missing his orchestra and in person lessons, but with YiQun's online lessons, he is feeling is motivated to practice again!

At my studio, every lesson is specially and uniquely catered to each student. Lessons aren’t prepared with each student's learning style in mind because no two children are alike. There is no “one-size fits all” curriculum! Students will learn to thrive at a steady pace and one that matches their own, while still having their skills molded and stretched!

I have been studying music all of my life and began giving lessons 3-4 years ago. My first lesson was for alto saxophone and then I began to take on piano students. I love to watch my students grow and feel the success of a great performance and also be able to understand that failure is still growth!

By spring 2020, I will have graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Music Education and teacher certification, to go on to obtain my Master's Degree.

There are so many colors to the human voice. Unlike most instruments, the human body does not show us what note we are playing or how the air is inhaled in to our stomach. So we end up feeling our way through, using our imagination. This is where the magic happens. In class and outside of it, muscle memory takes its natural course and we begin creating a unique and practical "navigation map" of your voice.
Whether you feel like letting out some steam, working on those high notes or designing your own sound; I am excited to meet you! I have studied (and still studying - learning is endless...) many different techniques and am very committed to sharing what I know with patience and passion.
Lessons are flexible, fun and fit for the students needs.
I take great pride in my students success and can't wait to welcome new ones!

Ariella is an awesome teacher. I’m only on my third of ten lessons and I’ve already learned a ton. She is patient, kind, very knowledgeable, with a high degree of customized direction to my particular voice. There are so many moving parts to producing a vocal and Ariella’s coaching is geared to helping me recognize and understand them. I’m already looking forward to my next lesson.
Paul
Ariella is an incredible teacher! In under an hour, she guided me through just about every area of vocal training: we worked on breathing, vocal positioning, different volumes, and singing across the break. I was amazed by the ease with which she integrated my own goals and her pedagogy. She is a kind, compassionate, professional, and extremely skillful teacher. I hope many people get a chance to study with her!

The Real Reasons Why You Need To Learn Guitar Scales

Is it really necessary to learn guitar scales? If you'd rather just focus on chords and songs, you're not alone. But here, Austin, TX teacher Samuel B. shares why practicing your scales will ultimately make you a better guitar player down the line... I'm a 25-year veteran of playing the guitar. In seventh grade, I took an introductory class to both the guitar and keyboard, in which I received only a "B" as I pretty much neglected the keyboard altogether. Besides, I'd taken piano lessons …
