About Henrik
Hello my name is Henrik! I have been playing the saxophone ever since I first picked one up in grade school. I consider myself a goofy individual who takes my instrument very seriously. I have been teaching private students for about eight years. I am currently getting my degree in Saxophone Performance from BYU. I love it when my students learn to have fun while practicing and gain confidence in performing. No matter your schedule or location, I am determined to make a difference and help people improve. I have a flexible class schedule that allows you to pick a time that works best for you.

I find it most successful to prepare a lesson for each student before hand, rather than going over the same thing with every one of them. You can expect a well rounded range of exercises and practice techniques. From motif development, t
une memorization and progressive patterns, to theory studies, music analyzation and playing along with the great recordings with the pros.

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!!

It is hard with a lot of teachers to get the full experience from online. In my voice career I have consistently looked for online teachers but I either felt I was getting worst from their advice or the lessons were to disconnected. Sierra is not one of them. She is direct, smart, and personable. She is able to pick out even the slightest change of pitch and is aware of how even types of laptops and sound location in a room can affect ones sound. She designs her lessons to you and what you need. We decided together to do weekly homework assignments that would make me more aware of my vocal abilities and I can say they transformed me. Not only in performance but in character as well. She doesn't try to show off even though her voice is AMAZING! She makes the lesson about you and is patient with your concerns. One day I just needed a whole day to vent and she listened to me the entire time, and even stayed online overtime so I could still get a lesson. Because of her I got moved up to our highest choir and got to perform at Disneyland! I was definitely tone deaf before even my choir teacher would joke about it but within a semester I had three solos. In addition, its very difficult to learn complex vocal techniques through online sources. As we progressed I moved into opera, something I never thought I could do. She is very observant to even how I move my neck and jaw and is willing to get very technical and push you if you are ready. I have done several concerts and competitions in opera now and she has provided me with a large majority of my connections. She wants you to excel and with her you will excel.

Sierra's lessons go beyond the vocal technique taught in master classes. She focuses on the student as a individual and not only builds them vocally but mentally and physically. With in a month of working with her my tone, range, and belt had improved three fold. I no longer feel strain when I sing and she has helped me cope with my performance anxiety. She is a teacher I would recommend to anyone, especially those who may be feeling vocal strain or performance anxiety, as she is well trained in mental and physical vocal health. One of the kindest teachers I have ever met. I have never met a teacher before who could push me above my limits, yet increase my confidence as a performer.

About Chris
I've been playing music for most of my life. Music is what I do full time, supporting myself, my wife, and my three children. It would be easiest to explain my musical life with a timeline:

Age 9 - piano, drums
Age 10 - cello
Age 12 - guitar, bass guitar
Age 16 - harmonica, mandolin
Age 17 - upright bass
Age 19 - ukulele
Age 21 - baroque cello
Age 22 - baroque violone
Age 24 - Banjo, Renaissance lute

I studied cello performance at three different schools (USF, BYU-Idaho, and BYU). I then switched majors, and studied commercial music at BYU. There I studied sound recording, songwriting, orchestration, film scoring, and jazz. I also played the upright bass and bass guitar with their top jazz ensemble, Synthesis.

Today, I do a mix of several different things - studio recording, performing (piano, bass and cello), arranging,
songwriting, and teaching. I've got experience in all kinds of styles - classical, rock, pop, jazz, Latin, singer-songwriter - and I'd love to pass some knowledge and skills on to you!
