Alex is a well-prepared, patient, and encouraging instructor. As a beginning trumpet student, I was self-conscious about my ability but Alex has helped me feel comfortable not only as a trumpet player, but as a musician. I would highly recommend working with him!

It took me more than 2 months of trying to find a piano instructor that not only fit my criteria in what I was looking to learn; but also my personality. Classical, music theory, modern... you name it. Im so lucky to have found Ms. Chanel at Studio Nar. My experience with Ms. Chanel has been more than a 5 star experience. We started working together in-home/studio, then transitioned to online due to the pandemic. My online experience has been wonderful as well. I recommend both the studio and Ms Chanel to all piano levels! Thank You Ms Chanel!

I am retirement age. Chanel is my third singing voice teacher (others were in person) and after only three lessons I feel I’ve learned a lot. She is an excellent singing teacher because she has patience, empathy and “personalized” the lessons to accommodate my pace of learning.. I’m happy I found her.

Private Music Theory Teacher

For those who are interested in learning the building blocks of music, music theory can teach you how to analyze, find patterns, and better understand music. We will work through the beginner and intermediate stages of music theory to help you better understand the music you play.

About Alison

Music is such an important aspect of life that can be enjoyed by all ages and is a crucial aspect of sharing and communicating. My approach to lessons is individual-based and flexible to your goals and needs. I believe that the enthusiasm, love, and enjoyment of playing music should never be lost,

Alison is great at explaining complex terminologies as well as breaking down difficult piano techniques. Her passion and understanding of different classical music styles exude even when she is just demonstrating a repertoire during our lessons. In addition, her patient and kind personality make our lessons very enjoyable and rewarding. Every week I look forward to our lessons and I am always excited about them.

Because Alison is also an inspiring role model herself, she constantly challenges me to become a better pianist. Throughout my years as her student, not only has my piano skills immensely progressed on a technical level; but I have also learned how to better interpret the repertoires of different styles, and conveying those emotions through my playing.
Alex
Alison is an extremely knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and experienced instructor. Her love for music comes across through her words and demonstrations, and she knows how to pinpoint and help me with both technical and musical issues. She also helps me understand the piece better without getting too theoretical or technical, which allows me to make more sense of what I am doing and still maintain interest. Her teaching is organized and detailed, which I appreciated. I highly recommend Alison for piano lessons!

Love Dr. M! I've wanted to take voice lessons forever but I have been hesitant due to my lack of experience. Dr. M not only made me feel comfortable but also confident in the voice that I have. She's personal and warm but also very professional. She never gets frustrated with obstacles I face in my lessons; instead she helps ways to overcome them.

I've never left a lesson feeling disappointed with my ability, something I experienced with other voice teachers. I feel confident in my voice and I owe that all to Melissa. For instance, during one lessons I was feeling a little off. Rather than getting frustrated she helped me focus on great ways to approach singing when not feeling your best. Dr. McCann rocks!

If you are looking for a voice teacher new or experienced I would definitely recommend Dr. McCann. Top notch lessons and overall awesome woman!
Kassondra
Dr. M. is a phenomenal teacher who does a great job customizing her lessons to the needs of the student. She has helped me make amazing progress with my voice, and just as importantly has helped me gain the confidence to be able to sign.

Her lessons are fun, effective, and very positive. All of which help the student learn more and get more out of the lesson. I highly recommend Dr. M. as a teacher to anyone (at any level) who is interested in becoming a better singer.

"I studied music theory with Adam because I needed extra help for college classes, and he was a huge help! There were so many concepts that I knew a little about, but Adam helped fill in the gaps of knowledge and familiarized me with the concepts so well, that I could teach them myself! He is patient, humorous, and a complete joy to take lessons from."

"Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!"

"Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory."

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …
