Tarsha P.

Millstone Township, NJ

About Tarsha

Tarsha began her study of music at the prestigious LaGuardia HS of the Performing Arts in NYC. There she was trained in Classical music and Theory. She then went on to Syracuse University to earn a Degree in Music where she majored in Voice and minored in Piano. Once Tarsha graduated, she continued to take private lessons while performing in pageants and talent shows around the NYC metro area such as "Amateur Night at the Apollo", and the "Ms. New York" pageant where she won the talent competition. Her biggest audition however, took place on the streets of Harlem U.S.A where an unafraid Tarsh
a approached world renowned rapper "Doug E. Fresh" and began to belt out a tune for him right there in the middle of the street! Doug E. wasted no time in signing Tarsha to his management co. and it wasn't long after that that Tarsha was signed by Tommy Boy records to record her first album. The album yielded the hit song,"Where I Wanna Be Boy" and set the stage for her next major move to Motown Records. It was at this time that Tarsha teamed up with other artists such as Busta Rhymes,Nas, Common, AZ, Big Pun, jazz legend Najee and Jahiem just to name a few. After touring and embarking upon a career in radio, Tarsha began teaching from her home. She had been hired by "Diddy" (Bad Boy Records) to come in and train some of his groups. She decided to share her knowledge of the music industry and to help train others to achieve their dreams.

Tarsha believes there is an artist inside all of us and her desire is to bring it out and let it SHINE! The lessons are all about the student and their desires. Whether it be training for an audition, preparing for a performance or simply training one's voice, the students needs will always come first. She takes great strides to ensure that the students have fun while working. Music should always be fun! Each student will be given their own specific type of lesson depending on their goal, but it will be fun, easy to learn and rewarding!!

*** Lesson Details ***
Each lesson will begin with stretching exercises and vocalizes. We will then move onto the chosen work of that day. We will break down the music first lyrically so that the student understands what their repertoire means and will gradually incorporate performance techniques. Each lesson will end with a recap of that days session and at home study will be given.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard and a tape recorder. They should provide any manuals or specific recordings we work on.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in R&B. I myself was an R&B singer from Motown Records (1996-2000) so i am familiar with the differences between singing for recordings and live singing. I have also toured so I am quite knowledgeable in maintaining one's voice while on the road. I have performed and taught how to sing with live bands as well as with electronic accompaniment.

She is the absolute best! Not only does she help build a foundation, but also helps the student achieve their goals. She is patient and always has a different way to explain things, if you don't understand. I would recommend her to any person, of any level, interested in getting a singing teacher.

Rachel is wonderful for so many reasons. She allows her students to feel comfortable and fills them with confidence. It had been over 6 years since the last time I sang publicly and I came to Rachel very nervous and filled with stage fright. With her as my vocal coach I am now more confident and a much stronger singer then I could have imagined and this is only after working with her for less then a year and I can not wait to see what she has in store for me next. She is truly a gifted teacher.

Zach M.

Marlboro, NJ

Just Sing! As a performer myself, I know how challenging it can be to get out of your head, stop thinking and let loose. I am here to challenge your instincts and develop your own fully energized, open and supported sound. We will explore topics like body alignment, tension, breath coordination, and registration to expand your versatility and stamina as a singer.

About Zach

As a teaching artist, my goal is to reinforce a healthy structure to your voice while expanding your capacities as an actor and performer by letting the complete singing actor emerge. I wish for my work in the studio to be accessible even when you are practicing on your own. I hope to empower each student to become self-sufficient on a personal level, understanding that each individual grows from different methods to find that perfect balance of artistic and technical instruction.

I recently spent the summer in Pittsburgh performing in four Pittsburgh CLO shows appearing as The Production
Tenor in Singin’ in the Rain and Garvin in Footloose. Before this, I spent my previous two summers performing at MT Wichita and Connecticut Repertory Theatre, all of which has taught me what it takes to become a successful musical theatre performer in this era.

I love teaching all students, but in particular high school students who are aspiring to attend college as a musical theatre major, non-theatre majors who are new to singing and want a stronger technical background, or actors who are new to the musical theatre scene and are looking to take their talent to the next level. I have a strong knowledge of repertoire ranging from contemporary musical theatre to golden age to opera/operetta. I have performed in musicals, operettas, plays, and have started my own collegiate a cappella group, The Statesmen. At Penn State, I was trained to not only teach musical theatre repertoire, but to include art songs and arias as well which have their own tool in a student's growth and versatility.

Most importantly, I like to have fun in the studio. I have a very open and goofy personality and want you to feel free to be goofy as well. Dare to fail. You may learn more from your voice cracking then you might from singing a beautiful note.

Lessons with Zach have been amazing, he teaches me new things every time I go to a singing lesson. He is very patient and will work as hard as he can to give you the best experience, and even when you have a hard time doing something in the lesson, Zach will push you and help to you accomplish whatever it is you are doing. Overall I recommend Zach to anyone who is willing to sing and have fun with it.

Before taking lessons with Zach, it had been a few years since I had any proper vocal training. Zach was extremely patient, professional and helpful with our lessons, as well as making the environment a lot of fun! I would recommend Zach to any clients that might be interested.

Sherri E.

Eatontown, NJ

Beginner Singers will discover a new amazing instrument that was never developed before. When releasing previous fears and beliefs of not being able to sing well, it tends to become a life-transforming experience. Professional Singers will get in top shape for concerts and recordings, and improve the physical and mental skills to be able to perform at their peak under pressure.

About Sherri

I studied Voice both privately in NYC and at New York University as a musical Theater major. I have fronted several NYC bands throughout the 80's and 90's and currently with The Sherri Pie Band throughout NJ and the greater metropolitan area. Miss Sherri’s singing programs will lead you through a fun, unique process that develops an extraordinary new found awareness of your voice, body and mind.This new awareness enables you to release strain and restrictions that you have likely not been aware of before.You can now effectively heal voice problems and develop all physical aspects of your voice
, such as greater strength, endurance, richness, resonance, power, and range.

"I took my kids to Miss Sherri because I kept hearing
how wonderful it was. I believe in early exposure to
music because they get so much out of it when they're
really little. And Sherri has a magical quality that
sparks their interest. Jack, 9, Andrew, 7 and my
daughter, Bailey, 6, are now clients of Shirley Grant,
a talent manager for Keisha Knight Pullian, who played
Rudy on 'The Cosby Show,' and Kathleen Herles, the
voice of 'Dora the Explorer.' Jack recently played the
lead in Running Rabbit Theater's production of 'The
Velveteen Rabbit' at the Two River Theater. We love
Miss Sherri!"

Carol C.

Seaside Heights, NJ

Singing is telling a story through music. You will learn to interpret the song in a way that will bring it to life. Lessons include breath control, exercises for enhancing your vocal range, and song interpretation so that people listening will be waiting on your every word.

About Carol

Hi ! My name is Carol and my passion is theatre - acting and singing. I have performed all my life in both plays and musicals. I have directed more than 20 plays/musicals working with all age groups. My degree is B.A. from New York University. I studied with Stella Adler after college and went on to professional work and later community theatre. You will notice I spell theatre with the traditional "re" - to me it means "authentic".

If you wish to enhance your believablity and really get to know each of the characters you portray, I will be able to help you. I have an actual method
for creating a character, whether it is acting or acting out a song. This method allows you to gently travel into your character and because you are in the "zone", relieves the tension and nervousness that come along with performing.

It's fun, easy and rewarding. I'm ready when you are.
