*** Lesson Details ***
What happens in a Lesson? In order to train your physical voice, it is necessary to do vocal exercises, in the same way that one needs to train at a gym. There is no "magic key" to unlock one's voice; it is a matter of daily practice and muscle strengthening/stretching. So, the first part of the lesson will be focused on vocal exercises specifically tailored to YOUR VOICE and its needs. The second half of the lesson is the fun part- SINGING! We will work on any songs and styles that YOU choose. Whether you want to sing Rock, Country, Pop, Musical Theater, or Classical, there is a healthy and communicative way to sing!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My home music studio is located in the upstairs loft, with access via an awesome spiral staircase! Parents and visitors are most welcome to view lessons in the loft studio, or can enjoy the sounds from the waiting room below, as the loft opens to the waiting room area. I have a piano, speaker system, and microphone equipment and the student should provide a recording device (iPhone, droid, iPad, etc.)

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide a keyboard. The student should provide a recording device, iPhone, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in Classical and Broadway style singing, but have extensive experience in Contemporary Commercial Music as well. I teach a healthy approach to all styles, and modify technical approaches towards the genre that the student is most interested in.

With all students, lessons focus on the student's music interests (Rock, Jazz,Classical,Latin etc.) My lessons focus on Technique, Snare Drum Reading, Drum Set Grooves and styles. Studies in all genres will include the application of these studies when performing music in ensembles. All studies include music reading (notated music) and aural (by ear) learning.
In 3-6 months students will learn proper techniques for several stroke types (Single, Double, Buzz) and many drum set grooves. Students will also learn fills and will begin expressing themselves musically on the drums. Students will also have the opportunity to experience and learn from playing drums with another musician as I will accompany them on Bass or Keyboard. In addition, students will learn to read and perform Percussion and Drum Set music.
More advanced students will focus on sound production (getting great sounds out of drums or percussion instruments), expanded reading (introduction of more complex technical and rhythmic concepts) and improvisation.
For interested students, Mallet Technique and repertoire (Vibraphone, Xylophone, Marimba, Bells) may also be studied.

Alexander H.

Franklin Lakes, NJ

About Alexander

Hello and welcome to my profile!

My name is Alex and I look forward to (possibly) teaching you!

My experience with teaching includes private teaching at Yale University where I taught undergraduate voice lessons in all different kinds of repertoire: a capella, musical theater, opera, jazz, etc.

I teach students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds, so if music and singing is completely new to you, no worries!

In our first lesson together we will go over your singing goals and aspirations as well as what kind of music you want to sing. Are you just looking to become a better
karaoke singer? Do you have serious Broadway ambitions? Are you just curious about your talent for singing? Whatever your goals and aspirations are, I'll tailor the lessons to your needs and wants so that you can get the very most out of our time together. :)

In our lessons we'll cover the basics of breathing, support, phonation, and placement. You can expect an increase in range, power, and vocal control, and correct any intonation issues. We'll also discuss stylistic issues and what songs/pieces best suit your voice.

Most of all we will have fun throughout the entire process!

If you have any questions feel free to message me.

---REVIEWS---

"Moreover, my attention was riveted by the young bass Alexander Hahn...when he sang it, the foundations of the Warsaw Philharmonic trembled. It was truly an exceptional voice!"
-Wielkanocny Festival LvB Czasopismo

"Alexander Hahn brought so much charm to Leporello that at times he nearly stole the show."
-Opera News

"The best sung was the King's plea to God for Iolanta's healing in the strong bass-baritone of Alexander Hahn."
-Opera-L

"Bass Alexander Hahn commands the stage."
-The Day Connecticut

"Hahn’s portrayal of the Count...was memorable. His resonant voice and litany of curses set up the final scene and marked the kind of pace and flow and continuity that made this production come alive."
-Shoreline Times

A Capella · In studio
I took lessons with Alex for two years during my undergrad and he was the best!
I was in an a capella group and looking to improve my singing and he did just that.
He has a great ear for voice and fixed a lot of my problems in just a few lessons.
He's also really friendly and made the lessons casual and fun.

I totally recommend him!

Alex is a wonderful teacher and has been so supportive of my daughter's passion for singing. Alex is a great singer himself and even though he sings mostly opera he knows all the ins and outs of broadway as well. My daughter loves taking lessons with him and she's improved tremendously over the past year. With his help she earned the lead role in her school production of The Sound of Music!

Alex has been very helpful in our lessons together. When we first met, we sat down and talked about what I was looking to achieve and what my goals were before starting. We started with the fundamentals to find out my baseline and the lessons have been very well paced and fun. I would recommend Alex to anyone.

My lessons were held at Alex's location because I did not have a piano or the privacy to do the lessons for an hour. We were in a spacious room with a grand piano each time.

My guitar lesson with Stefano was excellent! He is very dedicated to what he does and how he teaches. The book that he has recommended is an excellent book for beginners. I have been able to learn quite a bit in a short amount of time. He's teaching techniques makes you learn properly, from the sitting position to the playing techniques.

Chris B.

Pompton Plains, NJ

About Chris

My name is Chris B. and I've been playing music for most of my life. I started playing guitar when I was in my early teens and, like most kids, just thought it would be cool to play in a band and have fun. Along with my brother Jon (on drums), we immediately started to jam with some neighborhood friends and quickly honed our cover song skills. We then progressed towards writing original music and eventually formed a new band. As time went on, we both started listening to more complex styles of music and spent countless hours improving upon our playing chops to match the advanced techniques
of our favorite musicians.

The best lesson I've learned is that a musician is never done learning. Once you start believing that you know everything there is to know about your instrument, or that your style of playing is superior to others, then you've stopped growing musically. Perhaps you excel in one area of your playing but need further development in another. Personally, I've also learned that I enjoy sharing my knowledge of music with others and exposing students to new techniques and musical concepts.

I strongly believe that these traits are the most important aspects of teaching music to others. No matter how advanced my playing skills might progress, I’ll always be able to relate to any type of student because I’m still learning something new everyday!
