About Christine
“Give a man a fish, and you'll feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you'll feed him for a lifetime." This is my philosophy of teaching.

I specialize in Pop, R&B, Musical Theater, Spiritual, Gospel, and all other forms of contemporary music.

I started performing on stage at the age of four years old. I began formal private lessons in voice and acting at the age of 10 at The Newark School of the Arts and at The Children’s Theater Workshop in Essex County, New Jersey. As a young teen, I also began directing and leading the youth and adult choirs in church. As a result of my commitment to my craft I had numerous opportunities to perform and record as an accomplished artist throughout the United States and abroad.

As an international performer my credits include touring throughout the country of China as a lead singer for the
state of the arts Thai City Theater. Other recent credits include working as a lead production singer for the renowned cruise line, Carnival; sailing the Western and Eastern Caribbean islands performing Las Vegas style production shows.

I am currently the CEO of my own entertainment company 2-4-1 Entertainment and mobile music school. I perform regularly for various commercial establishments and private venues.

I studied Music and Theater at Montclair State University earning a BA degree along with a teaching license in performing arts.

With all that said, I describes my greatest accomplishments as sharing my passion to sing to all who are willing to learn. I am as passionate about teaching as I am about performing.

*** Lesson Details ***
If you love singing, then you should love your lessons. Lessons with me are fun, challenging as well as enriching.

Instruction will include:

-Light stretching exercises to reduce tension and relax muscles that can block good vocal production and vocal freedom.

-Carefully listen to, accessing and giving you feedback about your vocal potential and growth

-Identifying vocal range and limitations

-Proper vocal techniques with respect to vocal scales, learning to breathe, pitch, tonality, durability and posture

-Selecting music collaboratively that suits your tastes and ability

-Working with professional backing tracks like many contemporary artists in the industry

-Lyrical interpretation with respect to performance

-Sharing the understanding of vocal anatomy and how it affects singing

-Allowing you to tape record lessons for practice purposes.

-Comfortable environments where asking questions are encouraged and making mistakes are simply part of the learning process.

-Teaching and practicing good vocal health, including the need to drink water and monitor the speaking voice

-Building confidence as a singer and performer

As much as I loves teaching and building relationships with voice students in my studio, I does not believe lessons should be limited to the classroom. The training process may include performing small venues for family and friends to acquaint the student to performing in front of an audience.

My goal is to teach students who have a desire to perform, the necessary rudiments of singing and performing so he/she can go out into the world and shine as a polished singer!

I have had not less than 10 voice coaches over a period of 15 years and not one single one of them is as thorough as Christine. I had my first lesson today and what impressed me the most is that she's started me how to apply vocal exercises to an actual song. She is also a fantastic communicator who is very good at breaking down complex concepts. She is very humble ....a trait thats hard to find these days. I enjoyed the lesson and she made me feel at ease. She really does know her stuff . I learned a lot today ... She really is a gifted teacher.

I'm a praise and worship singer, I really love singing for the Lord. But in most churches you get a lot of shouting and yelling and can cause vocal damage. I didn't want to be "that singer." So, I started studying voice under Ms. Christine. Boy! Did I get a good understanding of how the voice works. What to do and what not to do. Thanks so much for your knowledge and your compassion for singers like me!

From the first day I signed up with Ms. Christine, she called me and started asking me questions about my musical goals. All the music classes/lessons I've taken, no one has ever asked me what was important to me musically speaking.

I knew from the initial conversation, there was some "special" about this teacher. It wasn't just the subject of music but Ms. Christine's passion to give and share the gift of music. She explained her music course and her expectations of me as a student. I was given my 1st assignment before we even got started working together face to face.

This woman takes her craft very serious and I highly recommend Ms. Christine to any serious singer.

Don does an outstanding job! He is able to connect authentically my son and customized the lessons to fit his learning style and needs. Don has drawn so much out of him musically and has also built a community of students that play together. He makes the lessons fun and engaging. He has opened up my 7-year old to the joy of playing and performing and has helped create a love of music. I highly recommend Don as a music teacher.

About Ryan
In addition to being a piano, drum, and music software teacher for over a decade, I also work as a composer and sound designer for video games. As someone who had a lot of great teachers growing up, I think it's important to emphasize the fun in learning an instrument, instead of only focusing on technical skills or music theory (though those are big too).

There's no point in taking lessons if you don't like what you're learning. To that end, my specialty is in creating a lesson plan that revolves around getting you the skills you need to perform the music you want to play. Here are just a few examples of the kinds of pieces I've helped students learn in the past:

-I've taught students a ton of Hollywood's best movie scores on piano; everything from Pirates of the Caribbean to The Avengers. Even The Exorcist, if you're down to get scar
y!

-I've helped students learn the ins and outs of ear training by teaching them how to play their favorite anime theme songs from memory alone.

-Like classical or jazz? I've shown people how to shred on everything from Chopin to Count Basie.

-Video game nerd (like me)? There are a ton of amazing soundtracks in games, and I've taught many students how to play songs from Zelda, Halo, and Final Fantasy, as well as indie games like Undertale and Journey.

-Want to be that guy/girl that can bang out awesome Karaoke jams at parties? I've taught people to play hits by Lady Gaga, Journey, 21 Pilots, and many more.

I've worked with kids and adults from beginner to advanced, so no matter what your age, background or skill level, I'd love to meet you and chat about what you want to get out of learning music.

About Xiao
I am a professional singer, pianist, songwriter. I graduated from Manhattan School of Music, specifically voice.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 20 years. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.

I firmly believe that great technique is essential to any music and every style. I look forward to meeting you and helping you t
o become a better musician!

About Ferenc
Music has been my greatest passion all my life, and teaching it is so rewarding!

I have played violin since I was eight years old, continued my music education in a special music high school, and eventually earned all my college degrees in violin performance (an Artist Diploma (5 yrs.) from the Franz Liszt Academy (conservatory) of Music in Budapest, Hungary, a Master's Degree from SIU-Carbondale, and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison). I've been teaching for 21 years, of which 18 years also as a full-time university professor. Besides teaching, I've been active as a chamber musician (mainly piano trio and string quartet) as well as in orchestral playing (with more than a dozen professional orchestras, including the Las Vegas Philharmonic and the Spokane Symphony).

I highly recommend Ferenc to anyone looking for a violin instructor in the Las Vegas area. I'm an adult beginner who has always wanted to learn the violin. I spent quite a while looking into teachers before I decided on Ferenc and I'm very happy with my choice. He's a very good teacher. I leave each lesson playing (at least a little) better than I did when I walked in. Ferenc knows his craft and he's very good at pointing out both your strengths and areas that could use improvement. He always gives me concrete things I can work on in between lessons and they help a lot. His instruction has been invaluable and I'm certain I wouldn't be progressing at the same rate if I had tried to learn on my own or even with a less skilled teacher. I look forward to continuing to work on my skills with his help.

We have three kids taking lessons (two violin and one cello), one of which transferred from another teacher. The transition from the other teacher to Ferenc was extremely smooth as she was able to pick up right where she left off. The other two started lessons with Ferenc and have progressed well. We are extremely pleased with his instruction.

Dustin was Fantastic! Could hear an immediate improvement with a cleaner sound of my son's playing. Dustin is calm and easy going but still addressed the issues my son was having in a positive and relatable manner.
So excited that we are able to have Dustin tutor my son for the trombone.

I have been playing guitar for over 10 years, and have been in groups playing classic rock to jazz. I have a lot of skill in terms of technique and can definitely create a program oriented around what your goals are, ranging from just improving some techniques to learning a specific song. I have played mostly classic rock and metal recently but am completely flexible in terms of what you want to learn. Feel free to ask me questions concerning what I would be able to teach you or what my program would look like. I am able to teach anything from beginning to advanced guitar lessons.
I am currently a student at Clemson studying Microbiology and volunteer at Kidspring at the local Newspring Clemson campus.

I played guitar and knew basic music theory when I was younger, but since then I've forgotten mostly everything I knew. Ethan offered to help me refresh what I had once learned. He did a good job covering the basics of music theory, and he made a solid platform for me to continue relearning music theory.
