Duluth, GA

About Grace

I am a Recording Artist who has worked on numerous projects including 2 of my own albums. I've been singing since 1986, graduated from Biola University, CA with a BACE degree (Education) then went on to Musician's Institute in Hollywood, CA attending their vocal program and I graduated with vocational Honor.

I've been teaching since 1997, doing both private and group lessons.
I am very good with explaining and working with you to find your voice - how to use them correctly and comfortably.

I also have been involved in Church music - Worship and Praise.

My passion is to teach peopl
e how to sing so that they can be happier! :-)

I am bilingual (Korean), and have a 9 year old daughter.

My studio is located on Summit Ridge Dr. in Duluth, GA.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like having fun. I believe learning to sing should be a fun thing to do - never a stress.
I come to your level to explain things in the way you understand.
I am a laid back teacher but time to time I make sure your money and my time does not go waste. ;-)

Lark S.

Lawrenceville, GA

About Lark

I absolutely love music and teaching it to others! Having studied both clarinet and piano at the University of Georgia, I am patient and encouraging with both children and adults. I have taught piano, clarinet, and alto saxophone for several years and have children of my own; so I understand that each person is an individual and has different needs and strengths. I am also the Beginning Band Director with the Athens Area Homeschool Band and assist with solo festivals and auditions and have played with the Gwinnett Community Band. I enjoy teaching beginning students as well as more advanced
students. It is such a huge joy to see a student grow in their understanding of music and gain the confidence that comes with it!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use the Bastien lesson series with my young beginning pianists which starts with being able to identify the notes and keys on the piano and then moves to reading music on the staff. I am very patient and encouraging with young students and speak to them on their level. My goal is for them to be able to identify the notes on the keyboard, find the correct hand position, and play a few simple songs within two to three months. After six months, they will be playing songs while reading notes on the staff. They may also participate in the Spring Recital and Christmas Recital depending on when they begin. *Please note, that I expect all beginners to have a piano or keyboard to practice on before beginning lessons. (Please look under Studio Equipment to see details and suggestions.)

For my adult beginning pianists, I use a lesson series by Alfred which combines music theory with the lesson songs and exercises. At the beginning they jump right into reading music, and within three months, the student will be able to play some nice songs. After six months, basic chords will have been introduced and they will be able play more complicated songs.

For my more advanced piano students, I use the Faber lesson series. With all students, I include music theory in each lesson, but the Faber series goes into more depth. It also covers a variety of music genres, including ragtime, jazz and classical. Also, depending on the individual, I will begin to incorporate some classical pieces as soon as they are ready. I'm always open to knowing what a student likes and pursuing songs that they will enjoy playing, particularly as they become more accomplished!

With my clarinet and alto saxophone students, I focus on scales and arpeggios, help them with songs that they are working on in band, and provide supplemental exercises, duets, or solos for them to play. I also help prepare students for middle school and high school district and all-state auditions by working on the scales, etudes, and sight reading and encourage them to participate in the Spring Music Recital.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano, keyboard, clarinet, and alto saxophone that I use for teaching, but I expect my students to have their own instrument before beginning lessons. A keyboard is fine for beginning piano students; it is not necessary to have a piano. I will be happy to recommend models and brands of keyboards to new piano students. Keyboards need to have full size keys and be 'touch sensitive' or have the 'grand piano touch', meaning how hard you press the keys will determine how loud it will sound. Some Yamaha models I recommend are: PSR E333, PSR E423, YPG 235, and EZ 220.

*** Specialties ***
I use Bastien piano method books with my younger (early elementary) piano students, and prefer the Faber piano method series with my older piano students (upper elementary through high school) which includes a variety of songs, ear training, transposing, and more music theory. With advanced piano students, I primarily focus on a variety of Classical music in addition to songs that may be of interest to them. With my adult piano students, I use the Alfred adult series which contains popular and classical songs that they may be familiar with. Each method includes music theory. I prefer teaching piano from first grade and up through adults, but have taught some five year old students as well.

I am familiar with the "Essential Elements" and "Standard of Excellence" method series for both clarinet and saxophone. I teach beginning to advanced clarinet and beginning to intermediate alto saxophone. I am classically trained on the clarinet although I enjoy playing and teaching a variety of genres.

Patient and Knowledgeable

Lark has turned out to be a good fit for my learning style. Trying to learn as an adult can be challenging and frustrating... And I am sure it can be a substantial test for the teacher as well. Lark has been very patient and understanding as well as very encouraging. Her lesson notes are extremely helpful as I prepare for each week's lesson. She knows her stuff and also knows how to create a good environment for the student. I am having a good experience indeed.

Flexible teaching style

Lark is extremely flexible with her teaching style. As a middle aged adult who has never read a note of music, I don't have a lot of patience with starting at the very beginning. I want to start playing songs I am interested in immediately. Lark manages to work this music into her lesson so that I keep my interest. I would recommend her to anyone who is just starting out.

Camden was an excellent instructor for our 13 year-old daughter. Although we had a handful of scheduling issues where timing was not communicated clearly by the instructor in every case (hence the reduction from 5 stars to 4), when he was present he was patient, engaged and really focused on finding ways to get our daughter to enjoy the learning process.

Mary Frances K.

Peachtree Corners, GA

About Mary Frances

Biography - Mary Frances K. has been teaching voice since 1991. She works with youth and adults, beginner and advanced. She helps voice students develop a healthy, beautiful sound, proper placement and projection of the voice for singing and speaking. Her goal is to help singers gain fulfillment and joy while improving their art.

Voice students of hers have won university voice scholarships and have been accepted into Allstate Chorus for High School in Georgia and other voice programs at the college level. She has taught in her home, and for Music Life Studio.

She also teac
hes piano. She has taught piano for about 8 years. She studied piano privately for 10 years and had further study at Indiana University. She accompanies herself in her own vocal study and rehearsals for synagogue choir practice. She believes music should be fun and rewarding.

Students wishing to have any combination of piano, music theory and/or vocal development can receive a program of study that meets their individual needs.

Mary Frances has performed with the Southeastern Savoyards Light Opera Company, the Atlanta Opera Chorus and Studio, the Atlanta Symphony Chorus, Marietta Theater in the Square, and Neighborhood Playhouse. She has sung title roles in Patience, Little Red Riding Hood and Hansel and Gretel. Other roles include Josephine in HMS Pinafore, the Princess in The Student Prince, and Connie in The 1940'™s Radio Hour.

She has performed many roles with Capitol City Opera Company (CCOC) including Annina in The Saint of Bleecker Street, Bastienne in Mozart's Bastien and Bastienne, Nora in Vaughan Williams™ Rider™s to the Sea, and Gilda in Milton Granger™s Talk Opera. She sang for many years in CCOC'™s school outreach program. She has sung many concerts for CCOC as well.

Mary Frances was a soloist in Handel'™s Messiah for Peachtree Presbyterian Church. She has worked as the soloist at The First Church of Christ Scientist in Roswell, Georgia and continues as a soloist at The Second Church of Christ Scientist in Sandy Springs, Georgia.

She has attended Brevard Music Center, The Georgia State Opera Workshop and the American Institute of Musical Studies in Graz, Austria. While in Graz, Mary Frances was a finalist in the Meistersinger competition.

*** Lesson Details ***

Recommendations for Lesson Length - Voice students: 30 minutes for young students up to 5th grade. 45 minutes for young students in Middle School and some 5th graders. 45 or 60 minutes preferred for high school students and adults. Piano students: 30 minutes for most beginners of any age. 45 minutes for young intermediate level and adult students.

Teaching Style and Curriculum - My teaching style is relaxed yet progressive. I use positive reinforcement to encourage progress with adults and children. Students are allowed to progress at their own pace which varies with age, coordination, processing speed and previous exposure to musical education.

I prefer the Alfred'™s Basic Piano Library series for my piano students. I find that my students learn more music theory and music reading with this series. If the student has started lessons in a different series, I can work with that as well. I have a large music library that provides a wide selection of music in addition to the Alfred books. I expect most beginning students to learn basic music reading and theory in 3 to 6 months. They should also to be able to play simple tunes in that time. I am an active professional singer, so I have a large library of vocal material at my disposal.

I begin my voice lessons with breathing techniques and vocal placement using widely accepted exercises coming from a large body of sources such as:
Vaccai, professional level vocal teachers, coaches and directors that I have worked with and learned from over the last 30 years, and the writings of highly acclaimed authors in the vocal field. I also have a wide selection of art song books, oratorio, musical theatre, and opera. My background is classical and musical theatre,
but I believe all styles of singing need the basic skills of breathing and vocal placement. I strive to keep voices healthy as well as find each student's most beautiful sound. Most students will see progress in breath control, range, projection and diction in 3 to 6 months.

Repertoire is chosen on an individual basis depending both physical and musical ability. Younger students and beginners will be encouraged to not push their voices with material that is too difficult for their individual abilities because singing requires a certain amount of physical endurance. My goal is to find each student's natural sound without strain for whatever style he or she
sings.

Hi--Mary Frances suggested that we go with 45-minute sessions, and I agree. We ran over about 15 minutes yesterday, so could you change my 30-minute charge to a 45-minute charge starting with yesterday's session? Then could you let me know once this change has been made so I can let her know? She will then change the schedule accordingly. Thanks, David
