About Justin

Winner of The 2015 American Prize in Voice - Chicago Musical Theater Award, American tenor Justin John Moniz, has earned great acclaim for his “comic chops and huge voice”.

Justin provides an outstanding and quality brand of instruction aswell as a comfortable and focused environment in which to learn, work collaboratively, and take risks when in a musical theatre workshop or lesson. When being vocally warmed up, Justin notices the quality of your voice for that day or time of day and uses different warm ups to accomadate your vocal needs. When working with Justin I am always discovering new things and pushing my limts with his unique mix of practicing material, learning new material, and then coorelating that material into discussions about the business aspect of musical theatre. Justin is not only a fantastic and highly recommeded teacher for me, but has become a mentor and role model to me of what a successful and prolific working actor should be.

I started taking lessons with justin in 2012. At the time I had never taken any vocal training (I was 21), and Justin helped me tremendously in learning how to use my voice. He instilled a great respect for the fundamentals in me, and has always been a generous and helpful presence. I stringly recommend him to anyone looking for a strong and knowledgable instructor.

I had the pleasure of studying with Justin in Miami and I was very happy with him as a vocal coach. He knows all the little tricks that instantly make a difference. I recommend him to anyone who is in pursuit of vocal improvment because his teaching methods are easy to understand. He knows how to get results

Akiyla M.

Tallahassee, FL

About Akiyla

Music is my eudemonia, as well as, my asylum. I have come to personally know and enamor its therapeutic benefits. It has inspired me to develop personally and academically. On innumerable occasions, when I was privileged with the opportunity to perform, I continuously saw the relief and the elation that the music was bringing to people. As Bob Marley once said, “One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.” Consequently, I sought out to make it my life’s goal to use music therapeutically to replenish lives. I aspire to do this by naturally leveraging my adoration for m
usic, expanding my knowledge and experiences in music, and ultimately becoming an education leader/practitioner in music therapy. I graduate from Florida A & M University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music, with a concentration in classical voice. During my undergraduate year I proudly served as the following leadership positions in my 80 plus concert choir as the President, Vice President, soprano section and assistant section leader. I am also a sister of the cherish sisterhood Sigma Alpha Iota International Music Fraternity inc. Currently I am a Graduate student at Florida State University aspiring to obtain my masters in music therapy. With my love, dedication and discipline for my profession I am certain that my students will benefit significantly as we build upon their musicianship.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to have fun while still incorporating discipline. All students will learn different styles and techniques from various styles of music to expand their musical talents and knowledge. Even if your focus is classical music, you can still expect to learn some jazz, pop, etc. Students can also expect to work on breathing exercises, diction, basic piano, basic guitar, sight reading, ear training, proper singing techniques as well as the anatomy of the throat. After a few months students will see tremendous improvements in the areas mentioned above as well as gain more confidence, individuality, creativity, adoration for the art and be able to execute their vocal instrument efficiently and beautifully!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have voice books for soprano singers, a piano, and a guitar. I require students to provide their own voice books (if I require them for your particular session), a notebook, and a recording device.

*** Specialties ***
Classical-Spirituals, Opera, Romantic, Baroque, etc.

Philip L.

Tallahassee, FL

About Philip

Guitarist Philip L. was born and raised in Jacksonville, Florida, where he began his musical studies at a young age. He was accepted to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts, named by the Grammy Foundation as the top performing arts high school in the nation. After high school, Philip received a scholarship to attend Stetson University, under the direction of Dr. Stephen Robinson. While there, he was able to refine his skills and learn a great deal about the interpretation of music on the guitar.
After receiving a Bachelor’s of Music, Philip became an instructor at University High School in O
range City, Florida. There he directed the guitar program, which he created from the ground up, and outside of teaching, Philip performed professionally (guitar and voice) around Central Florida in various groups and styles of music, including Rock, Pop, and Jazz. Since then, he was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Akron as a Teaching Assistant and later received his Master’s under the tutelage of Stephen Aron. Philip is currently working towards his Doctorate at FSU. Philip has played a number of feature concerts and masterclasses with great guitarists of our time, such as David Russell, Andrew York, Dusan Bogdanovic, Roland Dyens, Michael Chapdelaine, and many other artists.

*** Lesson Details ***
The first step will be evaluating the student's musical and technical skill level, then I build a curriculum from that point. As an example, a beginning student would learn how to read music, play basic rhythms, use proper left and right hand technique, and the notes in the first position on individual strings. After I have evaluated the current level of the student and their musical interest, I will begin to move my curriculum around their various needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I will have a music stand for you to use at your lesson. I require the student to have their own instrument so that they may practice outside of their lesson.

Besides being a very skilled guitarist, Phillip is very professional and reliable. He has a very laid back personality which really worked well for my shy 7-year-old daughter. He was patient and encouraging.

Avis C.

Tallahassee, FL

About Avis

I started piano lessons at five years old. My dad was my first teacher. During middle school and high school I continued with other teachers. Music became very important during my years at college, consequently, at the University of Minnesota I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education; in graduate school I earned a Master of Science in Music Education at the University of Illinois and finally, I earned a Ph.D. in Educational Leadership at the University of Miami.

*** Lesson Details ***
I establish a good rapport with my students in order for the class to be enjoyable. It is v
ery important to emphasize hand position and posture with beginners. New lessons are assigned each week. There are lessons that build technique and others that are based on familiar songs or easy songs for beginners.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are taught on an electronic keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
My specialty is teaching beginners and organizing piano recitals as a means of building confidence and enthusiasm.

Rachel Hall is one of the most thoughtful and detail minded musicians that I've worked with in my 25 years as a professional performer and teacher. She is intelligent, patient, knowledgable, and responsible. In addition to having a thorough knowledge of the viola as a teacher, she is a very fine performer as a soloist, chamber musician, and orchestral player. I can give her my highest recommendation!!

Rachel Hall is a fantastic musician and dedicated teacher. I have worked with her as a performer and have also witnessed her teach high school viola students. Her sense of organization, her passion, and her joy make her a special human being and very caring teacher. She is enthusiastic to share her knowledge with children and will go out of her way to make each student feel important and special. One time, I watched her perform side by side with one of her students in a prestigious venue, and he became so nervous, he got sick on the stage. She proceeded to take him backstage and take care of him until his parents could help him, even though she missed a significant performance. Her heart and skills make her an excellent teacher.
