Scruggs Style Bluegrass 5-String Banjo

Mike has done a great job teaching me. In a year and a half, I have gone from never playing a stringed instrument, to being able to jam with friends and family. I learned basic three-finger Scruggs style bluegrass banjo, and I making moves now to become an intermediate player. I really recommend Mike. He is kind and warm-hearted, and works with you to meet you where you are and improve your game. I now know about 10 songs that I can play lead on, and I can roll or vamp as back-up on any other bluegrass song. Mike has set me up now to work with intermediate techniques. Mike will help you learn!
Lorie
I have been taking banjo lessons with Mike for two months. The instruction has been really useful for me. I debated for a long time about whether or not to take formal lessons. I am so glad that I did. Mike is a very good musician and instructor. I am progressing and enjoying the experience. I highly recommend him as an instructor.
Billy C.
First lesson was great. I was nervous, but Mike put me at ease and made me feel right at home. The lesson flew by, and I can't wait until we meet again.

I believe everyone can and should make music! In our lessons we will focus on different elements of technique and musical expression. For voice, we will discuss and work on elements such as breath, posture, and use specific vocalizes (voice exercises) tailored to each student to challenge their individual range and musical style. Depending on each student’s goals, we will work on a song or songs which could culminate for a recital, audition, or just for fun! I teach beginners all the way through advanced, and am comfortable in a wide range of genres including opera, musical theatre, pop, praise music, jazz, and more. I also am comfortable preparing vocalists for sight singing, ear training, or AP theory music exams. I combine a very specified, hand-crafted, fun approach to helping my students meeting their goals, with warmth, encouragement, and humor. I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve what you want!

Ms. Miya is an incredible piano teacher. She is full of energy, love, and genuine enthusiasm in what she does. In addition to the technical aspects of music, she is talented in encouraging self expression, emotion, and telling a story within playing piano. Miya has both a friendly but professional demeanor and I would strongly recommend her to any student looking for a teacher.
Victoria
Miya is an excellent voice teacher. She really connected with my daughter and inspired her. Miya went above and beyond. She came to the solo ensemble competition and gave my daughter a fantastic pep talk that helped her relax and give a great performance. I was also very impressed with how professional Miya conducted herself. She was younger than some of our previous music instructors but she was fabulous!
Ben
I had a great experience taking voice lessons from Miya! She is an amazing, thoughtful, and talented teacher. Before I took lessons, I was unconfident in singing alone or singing solos. Since taking lessons with Miya, I have gained much more confidence as a soloist, and have grown so much as a singer. I am very grateful to Miya for all that she has taught me!

"Mrs. Hauck is an excellent piano instructor, she focuses on technique and the historical value of the music she teaches to create greater depth and connection with each lesson. Mrs. Hauck is extremely approachable and sensitive to Andrea’s pace and learning abilities, she explains each lesson thoroughly and I couldn’t be happier to have her as my daughter’s instructor.
Andrea wanted to be part of the review and wrote the below:

I am a student of Mrs. Mary. I have been doing piano with her for over a year. She is very good at explaining the material when I am confused, she takes the time to make sure I know what I am about to play. Mrs. Mary is very patient, she does not get mad or frustrated when I do not play the piano piece correctly, she just tells me to play it again and explains what mistakes I made. Mrs. Mary is very kind and caring. She is a very good piano teacher!"

"My son has been taking lessons with Mr. Gallo for a few months, and his progress on the french horn has been amazing and quite surprising! Mr. Gallo is extremely patient and provides excellent instruction that has helped my son develop technical skills to improve his intonation, endurance, and pitch recognition. Mr. Gallo has the perfect balance of guided instruction, positive feedback, making the lesson fun, and ability to push a student further in his playing. I was a little hesitant to try online lessons, but it is honestly the best solution when you have an instructor who cares so deeply for his students and their improvement. I would absolutely recommend Mr. Gallo!"

How to Sing Rock | Improving Your Skills & Finding Inspiration

When it comes to learning how to sing rock music, what do you need to know? Find out in this article by Saint Augustine, FL teacher Heather L... Rock singers are not exactly known for having impeccable technique or healthy vocal habits. So it might seem strange that a classically trained singer and professional voice teacher has anything to say about singing rock music, but I do. First, I believe that it's wrong to dismiss rock singers as undisciplined slackers with little interest in …

15 Easy Violin Songs That Make You Sound Impressive | TakeLessons

As a beginner violinist, chances are you’re eager to play easy violin songs that will show off your new skills. While playing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” is nice, you’re probably looking for some more popular tunes. For now, it’s a little lofty to expect to play one of Beethoven’s or Bach’s masterpieces right off the bat, but that shouldn’t discourage you. With enough time and patience, you will eventually become a skilled violin player who can perform nearly any kind of …

What Are the Best Songs to Sing to Show Off Your Vocal Range?

Many singing teachers agree that one of the most alarming things today is tuning in to television talent competitions and seeing nine-year-olds singing opera. Not only are the arias generally age-inappropriate, but they make vocal demands on the singer that often requires a training period longer than the child has been alive! Less publicly, but equally common, are singers who wrong-foot themselves with inappropriate repertoire at local singing competitions and music festivals. They might pick …
