About Melissa
I am dedicated to helping you to feel comfortable singing, performing and even auditioning. Teaching healthy techniques to free up your voice and give you the confidence to sing what you want.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do have cats at my home studio- be aware if you are concerned with allergies!

My first priority is making the student feel comfortable, we will move only as fast as the student wants to move.

We will start by setting some goals- what the student is hoping to get out of voice lessons. I will keep your goals in mind when teaching.

Learning how to sing can be a slow process. Expect 3-6 months of studying to notice large improvements-however, the more consistently you practice, the more consistent your progress.

Students will be asked to find or purchase their own music (average of $10-$30).

About Danny
I've played drums about 30 years and taught lessons about 20 of those years. Each student is different and I've evolved my lessons to accommodate teaching each student. My background consists of all styles of Drumset, marching band, rock bands, soloing and Troopers drum corps. Also playing in jazz, concert and orchestra bands gave me opportunity to perform and compete many places including P.A.S., scoring a 1 @ state and G.C. drum off. I took private lessons for a few years before leaving to college in Hollywood, CA, attending M.I.(Musicians Institute) with one of my instructors becoming the current drummer for Korn, "Ray Luzier". I now teach mostly out of my own books on how to read music, coordination, grooves, soloing and playing with bands. If you are not local, I offer online lessons too. I have 1-2 recitals each year and make it pos
sible for online students to participate. Accepting beginner to advanced drummers, come check it out.

About Suzanne
My number one goal as a teacher is to demystify the voice. Singing can be confusing, elusive and frustrating when you just can't figure out how to create the sound you want. I have felt all these emotions as a student and dedicate my teaching style to helping each student have a solid understanding of how to use their voice correctly and to achieve the sound they desire. Every singer is different, everyone learns and has their "Ah ha" moments from a different inspiration, so I tailor my lessons to cater to each individual's needs.

I'm serious about singing, but love to find the fun and joy in the process; It's very important my students feel at ease, comfortable and free to explore their voice without feeling embarrassed or vulnerable, I create an environment that nurtures free exploration to ensure we can discover what you're capable
of!

As well as voice technique I also offer performance coaching, audition coaching, studio coaching and recording prep, songwriting, and piano for singers.

A little about me:
British-born, Suzanne hails from a Musical Theatre background, a
scholarship student of the UK's acclaimed London Studio Centre, she is proud to the Shelia O'Neil Award winner for "Best All - Round
Performer" her graduating year.

She has gathered international acclaim for her unique vocal style and her commanding stage presence. A true chameleon of voice Suzanne co-created the successful indie band Dark Furs and Jazz Duo Lux and Lois. She works regularly with acclaimed producers and Music Houses lending her diverse vocal and songwriting skills for other artists as well as creating original music for Film and Television.

Suzanne's eclectic background ranging from Musical Theatre to Indie Rock has awarded her with an arsenal of knowledge on technique, (on stage, in front of the microphone, or in the recording studio) as well style, interpretation and performance technique. Suzanne believes the most empowering tool she can teach is to unearth and champion a student's own unique vocal style.

You never stop growing as an artist, or a teacher. Suzanne loves to guide students along the journey of working to their best voice.

After almost a decade of not singing or any singing lessons, I was apprehensive to start again. I felt like I couldn't sing in front of anyone comfortably. Suzanne made me feel like I could finally let my guard down.

Her lesson plan introduced me back into the world of singing gracefully. As the lesson went on, I became relaxed and aware of my voice once again. She pointed out my strong suits which helped me with my confidence, as well as guided me to what I can work on.

Her ability to help you connect to lyrics as well as pairing it with the technical aspect of singing really makes her a standout. Highly recommend!!

About Peter
I love sharing knowledge! Math has always been a passion for me, and I competed in several math competitions even in elementary school. Since then I have tutored many students in math from a fourth grade level to college math. I scored a 34 on the ACT and I enjoy helping others achieve their dreams by getting college scholarships. I lived in Italy for more than 2 years and have worked as an Italian teacher and tutor for 5 years. I have been playing guitar and making music for 19 years. You can check out my CD, "Songs from Pablo's Attic," on Spotify and iTunes. I am currently attending graduate school at the University of Utah and our tutoring endeavors help us work through school in a meaningful way.

About Bobby
I am a drummer from Salt Lake City, Utah. I have worked with many bands from Utah and have recorded with artists all over the Western coast of the U.S. I graduated in 2014 from Westminster College with a minor in Orchestral Percussion.

I can teach students how to read drum sheet music, learn songs, compose their own beats, keep the rhythm of the song, rudiments, and help students play in odd time signatures.

I am currently looking to teach beginner and intermediate students of any age range. I teach my clients in my creative and comfortable home in Sugarhouse, Utah.

Some of the genres of music I regularly teach are Rock, Indie, Hard Rock, Funk, R&B, Country, Pop and Metal.

Bobby's a very enthusiastic, friendly, knowledgeable drummer who also knows how to teach well. Often times musicians don't always know how to teach their craft, talented as they may be, but Bobby certainly knows both how to play and how to teach. I'd recommend him to anyone wanting to learn or brush up on their drumming skills.

Bobby has a wealth of knowledge and passion about music and can help you learn how to play your favorite songs on drums from any genre (alternative, indie, pop, hip-hop, jazz, classic rock, dance and more). 2 months ago, I knew nothing about drums, and in just 9 lessons so far I can now play a handful of songs and grooves. I learn so much each lesson, and Bobby does everything he can to help me succeed. I highly recommend Bobby.

About Brandon
I am a professional Saxophone, Clarinet, and Flute player. I have been composing my own music for video games and short films, and working as a mixing engineer for a couple years now, just really exploring many different aspects of music. I have a degree from Utah Valley University in Commercial Music, and spent most of that degree on the performance aspect of music.

My Saxophone students can expect some of the fun and some of the practical. We will be working on articulation, tone production, intonation, breathing, different forms of vibrato and many other aspects of control over the saxophone while learning songs that you as the student want to learn.

I have been taking piano lessons for 15 years, and turning around and teaching the techniques and abilities to my students have been really fun! We work on the fundamentals, but we
focus on learning cool songs and do things that few other instruments can do.

I have a lot of fun with music theory. I try to be practical in what students need to know, but can teach much more. I have a jazz background and can teach jazz theory, including comping and improvisation.

Brandon is fantastic. I don't know that he's ever given me a word of bad advice, and has been a HUGE help in getting my career as a producer and narrator off the ground. He's incredibly knowledgeable and skillful, and my experiences in both hiring him and learning from him have been absolutely fantastic. I would heartily recommend him!

About Abby
My name is Abby Hay and I have been singing since I could talk! I am a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. I was trained classically in my early teens and became more polished in contemporary and musical theatre styles throughout high school and college. I have performed in various choirs and small groups throughout the community, but my happy place is singing and creating music with my guitar at my fingertips.

My goal for each of my students is to help them to gain confidence in themselves and their talents through improving the skills that are uniquely theirs. Every voice and every student is extremely unique and it is my quest to help each student become the singer they want to become. Each student will learn to connect with their voice in a way that will help them feel empowered. I believe music has the ability to heal and enhance
any life. My hope is to share the gift of music with my students and the people in their lives.

About Mikayla
I started my formal music education at just three years old. That early education was invaluable in training my musical ear, and I now have excellent pitch. I started my extensive training in vocal performance at the age of 8, and have been trained in classical, opera, and musical theater in both legit and belt/mix. I have performed in over 30 musical theater productions and two operatic productions. Some of my favorite credits include La Carlotta (Phantom of the Opera), Eliza (My Fair Lady), Mrs. Potts and The Wardrobe (Beauty and the Beast), The Queen of the Night (The Magic Flute), and Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte).

As a youth, I performed with the Utah Children’s Choir and Pleasant Grove Jr. High’s choir. I then went on to perform with the award-winning Pleasant Grove Chamber Choir while in High School, and the BYU Women’s Chorus in c
ollege. I competed in NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) from 2008-2014 and placed each year in both Classical and Musical Theater Legit. In 2013, I competed in the Classical Singer Competition in Boston and placed in the top 10 in the nation. In 2011, I was asked to perform in the Tour of American Young Artists to China. I performed in Beijing, as well as several outlying Chinese cities.

As well as singing, Mikayla is an accomplished flutist, and enjoys playing the piano. She is very artistic and loves to draw, sew and craft during her free time. She played Volleyball in high school, was on the swim team, and loves horseback riding.

I have an outgoing personality, and am excellent at helping others feel comfortable. It is my goal to not only help you learn to sing, but also to feel comfortable singing and performing. I absolutely love singing and performing myself, and I am excited to help you reach your musical potential!
