Experienced piano teacher of 15 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of piano skills. I specialize in performance skills and typically use the Alfred Adult or Beginner books.
I have played piano since age 5 when I began playing by ear. I learned to read music much later in my life and have gone on to work in many different capacities as a pianist in the professional world. I have worked with many cabaret artists as musical director, arranger and accompanist. Most notably, Debbie Boily's "Thank You for the Music"a one woman show with me at the piano, recorded live at Ovations in June 2004 Houston, Texas and subsequently performed in France, England and New York.

About Michael Douglas
I maintain very active performing and teaching careers. I have private voice studios on Long Island and in Manhattan and have taught singers and pianists in every genre of music for the last 28 years. I was on the faculty of New York University in the Music and Music Professions Department for 5 years. I was a coach in the Banff Centre's 'Voice through body and movement' workshop. Throughout my career as a vocal coach, I have worked with many cabaret artists as musical director, arranger and accompanist. Most notably, Debbie Boily's "Thank You for the Music"a one woman show with me at the piano, recorded live at Ovations in June 2004 Houston, Texas and subsequently performed in France, England and New York. Most recently, I recorded an opera with Jazz legend Anthony Braxton and a Jazz CD with Fred Ho. I have recorded operas in progress fo
r Atlantic Records and new works of composers on the BMI label. As a performer I won the prestigious Jessie award for "outstanding performance by an actor in a leading role" for my creation of the Marquis in "120 Songs for the Marquis de Sade" in the world premiere co-produced by Modern Baroque Opera and Vancouver New Music. My international debut was in Sweden, singing the lead role of Director in "Kafka's Chimp" by Welsh composer, John Metcalf. Originally from Hawaii I now reside in New York where I garden and raise chickens. Experience
Fall 2000-2006 New York University NY, NY
Vocal Instructor for undergraduate and graduate students in the Music and Music Professions degree programs.
Instructor of Italian Diction
Music Director/Vocal Coach for ODIN, a new rap opera.

Spring 2003-2014 State University of New York at Stony Brook Stony Brook, NY
Vocal Coach for chamber groups for performances, which begins with selection of repertoire and continues to final dress.

*** Lesson Details ***
I endeavor to teach you a natural and easy vocal production; to teach you a good solid technique of singing and to help you develop confidence and a polished delivery as a singing artist on and off the stage.

Our work together is an intuitive journey of discovery. Your participation in giving feedback about what you are experiencing during our sessions together as well as what happens in your practice sessions and in your performances is an invaluable tool for us to discover and develop your voice.

Practice: I encourage you to practice 20 minutes a day. An hour is ideal. Singing is like anything that you want to master: it improves with work and investigation. The voice is a curiously individual element of each person and aside from the basics of technique no two voices work the same. Our work together is to develop your unique voice and to discover how it works. Working outside our sessions on a regular basis will help you take ownership of your voice and technique.

Auditions/Performances: Please bring all music that you plan to sing in public to your sessions well in advance of the performance. We need time to investigate the music and its demands together; it will make you more confident and polished in your presentation.

In our Vocal sessions you will learn…
…how to use and blend the entire range of your voice.
… a healthy and free voice management.
1) You want to know what to expect from your vocal instrument on any given note and on any given word.
2) Training makes singing technique second nature; training relieves struggling to get the sound out and allows more focus on the performance.
3) Training allows for more tone coloration, a wider dynamic range, a full use and blending of the registers and greater stamina.
4) Extensive training and practical voice work gives a singer with long-range career aspirations the tools necessary to succeed in an incredibly competitive business. Whether the music is rock, pop, jazz, rhythm and blues, country, musical theater or classical, the trained singer can better meet the demands of a life on the stage as a singer.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Dedicated Music Space, music stand, grand piano, three windows

*** Specialties ***
Onstage singing: I have 29 years experience on the operatic, music theater and cabaret theatre stages.

Custom tailored lessons just for you. Designed
to teach students how to play the piano, read and understand music notations and music theory, and express themselves musically using music they like

About Dr. Ossie
I started taking piano lessons at the age of eight under the instruction of Robert Wilson before switching to Rosaline Saunders Music Studio. I play by ear, but also read music. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Louisiana at Monroe with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music. My purpose is to create well rounded musicians, who can play all genres of music, and who will also know how to set the atmosphere with their music. I love teaching piano and I love teaching all ages. I began teaching piano in 2003 before becoming the founder of The Master's Hands Music Studio in 2004. My greatest joy is seeing the knowledge and gift of music passed to others that was afforded me by the sacrifice of my late parents.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am patient but expect my students to practice so that our lessons are a continuation
of the lessons taught before and not practice sessions in themselves. I use the Alfred's Basic Piano Lesson and Theory books. I believe in custom tailoring the lesson to each student. Finding out what you love and working to get you to the place of playing that music.

*** Specialties ***
Teach all genres, specialize in gospel and R&B

About Michelle
Hi! My name's Michelle and I've been working as a professional musician for as long as I can remember. I was very lucky to grow up in a family of musicians and to be exposed to high-level music education at a very young age. I found my love in keyboard instruments and went on to pursue piano & pipe organ at both the undergraduate and graduate level. I've since had positions as Music Director in various churches, where I've conducted choirs and planned large musical programs, in addition to performing regularly for all services. I've also served on committees working to bring keyboard music to larger, age-diverse communities. I've created and developed music programs for children & youth in non-profit organizations while teaching and coaching students of all ages. I've accumulated a significant portfolio of original compositions and arran
gements which have been performed internationally.

Miami, FL

Piano classes will be geared not only with piano technique, but with music theory as well. Piano is a great instrument to learn because it is the instrument that allows you to be able to transfer to other instruments, if you desire. Piano lessons will be geared towards music reading and technique. Once a basic and proficient music reading is achieved by the student, lessons can begin to infuse music not only from the method books, but from student interest.

Kadhine Rodriguez is a singer, actress and educator born and raised in Miami, FL. She received a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from the University of South Florida and a Master of Science in Music Education from Florida International University.

My students gain a well-rounded perspective of music and a deep understanding of the instrument from studying all areas of piano including theory, history, and technique. I take care to craft lessons to meet individual needs, learning styles, and interests. Together, we set personal goals with regards to piano performance and utilize a the vast resources of repertoire to achieve them in lessons and through learning how to practice effectively.

About Erin
I am an enthusiastic piano instructor with over eight years experience teaching beginning through intermediate students. I currently run a studio out of my home in Peachtree City, GA but am happy to travel to your location.

I began teaching piano at an early age after graduating from a Piano Pedagogy course. I furthered my education by taking a college level music theory course where I gained invaluable knowledge related to the theoretical underpinnings of musical notation. I have related teaching experience in the arts and was a dance and music & movement instructor for six years. To support my professional teaching goals I have also taken courses in child development at the collegiate level.

To stay up to date on current pedagogical methodologies, I maintain a membership to a local chapter of the Georgia Music Teachers Association.
This also allows my students to take part in an annual judging festival called Federation if this aligns with their performance goals.

I love crafting individual objectives and paths for piano education with all my students. Their goals become my goals and I strive to use all the pedagogical tools available to help them reach a rewarding level of experience with the piano. Practice is a large responsibility and undertaking by the student but I am here to coach you through proper ways to manage your time and give you exercises to help you see improvement in your playing each week.
