About Cara Isadora

Cara has been a fantastic voice instructor. I started out as a complete newbie with no formal singing experience. After a couple of months working with Cara, I have improved dramatically. I would recommend her highly if you are looking to find your voice or improve your singing.

This is Cara. I’m responding to the two negative reviews. One student simply did not understand the dangers of singing falsetto ALL the time. I do teach falsetto. I actually even send videos out with particular exercises with falsetto attachment. As the one reviewer mentioned, they had a personal grudge against me and apologized. The other student, didn’t understand that I don’t teach beginners falsetto right away before basic technique is established. Thank you for the positive reviews! Unfortunately, I cannot respond to these comments directly.

I wrote the review below because I was mad at her for personal reasons... Shes actually a great teacher. Sorry Cara

As a classically trained pianist, I am familiar with a wide array of repertoire and composers. If you are looking to explore classical music, I can help to develop the technique and stylistic awareness to best perform it.

About Alexandra

Music has always been a very significant part of my life. I began taking piano lessons at age seven and grew up listening to and playing classical music. As I started to grow older, the piano began to become such a large part of my identity and a way for me to express my emotions and creativity. My

Alex is an amazing teacher, sensitive to the level and needs and dreams of my eight year old daughter. She is tailoring lessons and challenging my daughter at a perfect pace, not too easy and just hard enough to inspire. What a great learning experience.

I have studied voice under the world’s most renowned teachers for 13 years. Now I want to share what I’ve learned with you.

The biggest pop stars and musical actors in the world have mastered their voices. I will walk you through the exact same techniques and strategies used by Lady Gaga, Bono, Camila Cabello, Kristin Chenoweth, Mick Jagger and many, many more. How do I know what I’m talking about? I learned from their teachers, Don Lawrence and Celeste Simone.

Learning to improve your singing can be daunting, whether you’re auditioning for the lead in your high school musical or getting ready to go into the studio for a record you’ve been working on. There is so much poor information on the internet, horror stories of singers “ruining” their voices and needing surgery, and many vocal coaches claiming that every other approach to singing is “wrong.” I’ve studied under the most respected vocal coaches of in Pop and Musical Theater styles in the world, and what I’ve learned is that ...

I have used DAW software as Ableton Live, FL Studio, and Linux Multi-Media Studio for several years to create original, favorably reviewed electronic music concepts. While a sizable sample of studio time has been either independent (releases on Pandora, Soundcloud, Spotify) or for multimedia, as E-Learning/Articulate360, the initial impulse was to contribute acoustic backgrounds and creative inspiration for live bands. I have released several singles and albums on Pandora, Soundcloud, Spotify, ITunes, Amazon, Youtube, and related media outlets. Additionally, my songs have been trending on multiple playlists from magazines and music agents. This includes a reader submission reward for an exemplary genre demo. I have garnered over 100K listeners and followers on various channels. Essential for a decent command of Ableton Live is to learn both session and arrangement views. We study systematically the task and the art of embedding vocals, instruments, midi, effects, automation, and ...

I am not sure how I did. The process of using voice is ok but it seems like using this process may take some time to get use to. I still have not received the review information and it's difficult to practice pronouncing the words. Babbel seems to work better with the practice audios etc

"I took around 15 lessons for bass guitar with James and really enjoyed it. James was able to tailor the experience for what I wanted, which was heavy on music theory, but still made sure we applied the theory to the instrument. I had prior experience with some music theory and playing, but hadn't touched my bass in almost 10 years. James was able to figure out exactly where to pick up, provided great materials, and kept me engaged. James is very knowledgeable, a great player, and a cool cat."

"Ms. Valyncia was an amazing coach. She was very patient , very honest and very professional. She pushed me beyond my comfort zone and I was able to improve my breathing, improve my range and put some personality into my performance. That was a long time ago but I plan on booking her again as my coach. I highly recommend her ! You will definitely become a better singer / performer when working with her , as long as you put the work in."

"My daughter just started clarinet. I was unsure whether online lessons would work for a beginner, but they have! They are easy to schedule, easy because you don't leave your home, and they are working well. Ashley is knowledgeable, kind, attentive, and patient. My daughter has progressed very well in just a month of lessons. Ashley is very supportive, which is needed when starting a new instrument.

As a trumpet player, I am well-versed in music. I have sat in on a couple lessons, and I am very pleased with Ashley's teaching technique and approach. My daughter loves her, too. I would certainly recommend Ashley as a teacher."

Are You Making the Most of Your Violin Practice?

Gifted musicians don't appear from nowhere fully-formed and ready to take to the concert platform.  For every 45-minute concerto or 90-minute recital you hear, hours of hard work have gone into every note, every phrase, and even how the music is approached, learned, and memorized! It may seem strange to say that proper practice is the most nerve-wracking element of mastering your violin, but if you don't know how to structure the session, how can you ever be sure that you're working on the rig …
