Students will be introduced to a variety of vocal warm up and strengthening techniques designed to develop the voice. We will also be studying songs and lyric reading.

About Azuri
Learning is one of my main pursuits. My name is Azuri and I have studied music for over a decade and have my degree in guitar performance from musicians institute. I've had the gift of studying many artistic crafts and spend my time today trying to further my own study, while sharing what I've learned with my students.

Art is one of the most important tools we have as a culture and contains in it a shared history, tradition and the keys to future ones. Whether it be through the primal qualities of music or the impulses of dance, the records of drawing or descriptions of writing, these are the tools for our expression. I have had the great fortune to study, in many different settings, a small piece of these traditions and sharing them is paramount in respect to receiving them. I love sharing knowledge and I hope to elevate yours as a st
udent.

Teaching Philosophy -

My teaching philosophy is built on well rounded communication, explanation and examples. So, that a student can truly understand and learn a topic, surrounded in a very humorous, light and supportive environment.
Along with being provided good information, a student learns better and feels more motivated to learn when there is a balance of positive support and confidence building accompanied by constructive criticism and examples/information that can help a student assess what ever walls they may be meeting in their musical growth.

I understand that all students/artists have different goals they wish to achieve. So it is very important to me to accommodate each individuals needs and wants to help them grow in the fields they wish too; However, In that I have played music for a long time, I understand there are certain things that a student may not have been exposed to yet; It is important that while focusing on a students artistic goals they respect and are open to the suggestion and guidance of their teacher.

I truly believe music has an amazing influence on the world and has the ability to change peoples way of thinking. Therefore, I try and keep an open awareness to all music, so that I can understand all different musical languages utilized to communicate to people, and I don't believe I will ever know them all. I hold it to attention to influence my students somewhat similarly so that they can shape the landscape of how we communicate musically in the future.

I also try and be very patient with my students. Knowing that when I feel rushed, it makes information more difficult to comprehend, remember and allocate. I love watching the gears run in my students head, so I try and provide information that pushes a student but is within their abilities.

HUMOR is very important. I like to break people out of their shell by telling a joke and hopefully getting one back, so they feel more comfortable and free. One of a Artists worst enemies are nerves. Keeping things light-hearted and maybe even a little small talk can be very helpful to a students development and growth on a topic. After all, Art is meant to be fun and we should enjoy every moment of it, in fact we should enjoy every moment in life period.

I understand music requires focus and discipline and I have certain expectation of a student to understand that and practice. You can't buy chops, you can't buy music theory etc. you can get help but eventually your the one who must understand it and play it.

I am here to help you. Based on what I know and what I have extensively studied, I will do all that I can to help you achieve your musical goals. I am here to answer your questions and help you grow. I love teaching because I love sharing knowledge; As long as your seek it, it is here for you. Otherwise, I'd still love to hear some jokes.

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm very disciplined but am also very light hearted. It's important for me to assess things seriously, so that one can understand a topic or piece of information.

I generate my lessons based on the individuals needs and therefore draw from various curriculums, sources and examples, such as : MI curriculum for ear training, Theory, Single string Technique, Reading, Rhythm guitar, Ted Greenes Chord Chemistry, Berklee Guitar Method, as well as The Real Book, other artist books(Eric Clapton, etc.) The Guitar Players Hand Book, Bach pieces and self developed curriculums, relative to the topic at hand and students personal goals, amongst many others.

-Beginning students within three months of consistent lessons should have the ability to solo and playing chords to songs that they are interested in and songs provided in the lesson along with a basic understanding of the major scale and its relationship to all of the diatonic music.

-intermediate students should have an elevated understanding of scale and chord patters along with the theory that explains modal relationships and use of these concepts.

-Advanced students should learn all of diatonic scale shapes and modes assuming they don't already know them in which case their specifically situation will be assessed

-Professional students I expect to have specific questions therefore where they grow should be largely subjective.

Overall, in a short amount of time on a scale of 1 - 10 I expect to in three months at-least elevate a students musical abilities one full point if not more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio in home in private room with guitars, amps, piano, and seating.
Em's studio is family owned cafe with studio in finished basement with an office, recording equipment, and teaching space for acting and guitar.

*** Specialties ***
As a Musician I try and play as many styles and be proficient in as many as possible and therefore can play most. However, in the fields of blues, jazz, funk, flamenco and Latin I excel.

About Chris
Hi! Welcome to Take Lessons! Let me start off by saying that I love to teach singing and acting!! I specialize in teaching students from teens to adults but love teaching younger children as well. There is no better feeling than to see a student grow and better themselves artistically and personally. In addition to teaching singing and acting for over 10 years I have performed in numerous Broadway shows, West End shows, and National Tours throughout the US and Canada. I am presently a working actor. I received my education from the University of Michigan's School of Music. Whether you are a first time singer/actor or an established professional I love students who are excited to absorb new ideas and attempt to grow in ways they hadn't thought possible.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are unique to each individual. I tend to cater
my lesson plan to each students goals, experience, and age. I believe that there is no one way to teach or one way to learn. Trying numerous exercises and coming up with creative ways to help students assimilate new material and concepts is a core part of my teaching philosophy. Above all learning should be fun and exciting. I will do my best to create a safe open atmosphere where a student of any age level can succeed in achieving their learning goals.

Musical Theatre is my passion and my forte, however in order to teach singing or acting proper technique must be established.

*** Studio Equipment ***

Chris was very patient and provided great advice, examples and coaching. This is my first voice lesson and I am 54 years old and I was very nervous and unsure, but Chris made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I am looking forward to the next lesson and I am already practicing. My goal is to improve my singing and perhaps one day be on a local stage playing a small part, something that has been in my system for many years! I believe Chris will provide me with the training that may one day assist me in achieving my goal.

Experienced voice teacher of 8 years! All ages and abilities are welcome! Lessons are customized and catered to the needs/goals of each student.

I want my students to reach their musical potential and aspirations while having a wonderful time! Let's get started!

About Zelina
I am a professional singer and voice teacher. I perform as a lead vocalist with a popular top 40 band in St. Louis and can be seen singing with several other well known bands in the city and region.

I tailor my approach to the needs of each students individual needs and goals.

confidence, and expression!

I teach voice lessons for students from beginner to advanced levels. My students range from 4 years old to 70 years old, but you're never too old to start! I use Singing Lessons for Little Singers by Gregory Blankenbehler for students under 9 years old. This book is a 3-in-1 Voice, Ear-training and sight-singing method book for Children. For students 10-15 yrs, I use Teach Yourself to Sing by Karen Farnum Surmani. This book teaches the basics of proper singing, music theory, and performance skills. And for Adults I use The Contemporary Singer by Anne Peckham which teaches the basics of singing and performance for adult learners.
I believe singing should be fun to learn and everyone can grow and develop their voice! I strive to create a positive environment for all my students no matter their experience level or age.

About Kelsey
My name is Kelsey, and I teach Guitar, Voice, and Songwriting lessons. I loved learning to play guitar when I was 14 years old as I was learning to write my own songs and perform them for various audiences across Michigan. And now that I've been playing, singing and writing for 17 years, have my Bachelor's in Music from Cornerstone University, and years of touring experience, it has been my privilege the past 6 years to teach these skills to students of all ages out of my home studio! I love to teach and I love music and sharing this passion with my students every week is one of my greatest joys!
My goal for each student is to help you achieve your goals. Whether that's performing live, or just learning to play and/or sing your favorite songs, or jump starting your songwriting. My guitar students have seen much success in learning new c
hords and getting to practice their favorite songs and master new techniques that make them sound more professional. My voice students have seen so much development in their tone, pitch recognition, breath support, and over all vocal strength as we set goals for their individual voices. And my songwriting students have learned to write their own songs, and even ways to get ideas flowing when they feel the dreaded "writer's block". Whatever your goals we can work on achieving them together!

About Paul
***My goal as a teacher***

I try to teach what the students are interested in and make it fun and interesting so that they learn the lessons and their favorite songs. Every student is different and needs to be taught in a way that makes learning easy and fun for them.

I have a passion for all people and all ages and am blessed to be able to teach from the very young, (ages 2-5 Toddlermusik lessons) to teens and adults.....all the way to senior citizens. I've had many older students all the way up to a 93 year old gentleman who is taking singing lessons and asked me to put music to his lyrics. We have recorded over 50 songs together.

***Background***

I started playing trumpet in 5th grade and knew that music was for me. I also liked playing with drums and piano also because they seemed exciting. I've competed in WSMA (Wi
sconsin School Music Assoc.) for many years which taught me a lot about performing for judges, being relaxed, and the importance of preparation.

I started playing the guitar and bass guitar when I was 13 and have never stopped practicing and performing since. I also have done a lot of writing, recording, producing, and have a Pro Tools Studio for students to use.

***College and Teaching***

I began teaching music lessons in college and enjoyed it very much. I received my B.A. in Music from the University of Wisconsin, Stevens Point. There I was very much involved with guitar, piano, voice, trumpet, and being in bands and writing music. After receiving my B.A. I also took 3 years of Education classes at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. I write, produce, and perform my music along with performing with bands around the Midwest.

***Life in Music***

After receiving my B.A. in Music, I continued teaching and opened up my home studio. After a year and a half I had enough students that I was able to quit my factory job and teach music full time. I've been teaching, performing, and writing music ever since.

***Performing and more***

I have been on stage performing music since I was 11. In school band, marching band, competing in music competitions, and in bands touring the Midwest.

I have recorded many CDs with bands and on my own. My most ambitious project was a CD of my original music called, "Girls". I've performed my music and promoted it by being interviewed on Milwaukee radio stations along with internet music sites such as CD Baby. It is very exciting talking on live radio about my music and my passion. It is also even more exciting, and scary, playing my music live on the radio, lol.

***Instruments Taught***

I have been teaching for over 2 decades. Students take lessons for:
* guitar (electric / acoustic)
* piano
* violin
* voice
* drums
* trumpet
* saxophone
* harmonica
* music theory / ear training
* studio recording / songwriting

I also give kindermusik lessons to 2-5 year old all the way up to senior citizens 70-93. I play parties, concerts, and Nursing Home performances.

I am experienced as an online (Skype) instructor, and I have taught online lessons worldwide. I've witnessed great results from my online students (both national and international).

I hope I can help you with all of your musical goals and get you going in a positive musical direction.

I meet Paul about three months ago, While not a complete beginner, I had tried to teach myself thru out the years and picked up a lot of bad habits. Paul helped me to see and fix my habits. Paul is a very qualified teacher, of many instruments, drums, keyboards, guitar, and others. I'm 59 years old, Paul doesn't mind my age, doesn't treat me like I'm too old to learn new stuff. And is more than willing to see me thru complete guitar instruction. Thanks Paul...

As an award-winning singer-songwriter, I have been teaching singing for six years. My teaching focuses on finding your own unique voice. In first few lessons, you will learn how to access each of your different resonators (and what they are!), how to properly use the 360-degree breathing method, and how to access your most grounded self in order to clearly define your goals. Through this self-discovery process and use of proper technique, your expression through singing will come to life!

About Ellysa
Hello! My name is Ellysa and I am so excited to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students realize their potential, gain confidence, and find their own voice. I have been trained in the LAMDA system, as well attending Interlochen Arts Academy. I'm an energetic and empathetic person; my strong perceptive skills allow me to adapt to each of my student's individual needs. While we'll definitely cover the technical aspects of what you're learning, my teaching is very much rooted in who you are and letting your own voice out, whether it be through singing, songwriting, or playing an instrument. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

Hi guys! My name is Juan. I am a professional singer, musician, and music teacher.I have around 15 years of experience with various instruments from drums, guitar, voice, piano, and bass.

I spent three years as a touring and working musician in Argentina from 2012-2015, gigging 4-5 times per week, and that largely influenced my understanding of the necessary skills one must have in order to sing and perform comfortably!

I have studied private voice lessons on my own for nearly 10 years, and taught for around five years. When working with my students, I work through three things: breathing, technique, and range. My students range from first level beginning singers and musicians to already established and working musicians, just looking to better their breathing, technique, and expand their vocal range.

I enjoy making the lessons catered to your own musical desires, so we will be choosing songs that YOU like singing and performing! Furthermore, many of you are in bands or looking ...

I have been teaching/coaching for 4 years in the styles of pop, R&B, contemporary musical theatre, broadway, background vocalists, gospel, worship leading and performance coaching for singers. My exeperience has been with beginner and intermediate singers from children to adults. I have worked professionally both as an actress and singer in musicals, concerts, theatre, film and television. I'm excited to unlock the greatest potential within every student! All ages are welcome

About Shay
I'm a singer/actress originally from Motown Detroit. I graduated from The Conservatory of Theatre at SUNY Purchase with a BFA in Acting. In NYC I worked as an actor in theatre, regional musicals and television. I am a proud AEA member and former AFTRA member. I was also a worship leader at World Changers Church NY.

During that time I gave private vocal lessons to worship leaders, background vocalists, musical theatre artists, actors and contemporary pop/R&B singers.

For 4 years I worked in NYC as an enrichment teacher where I taught musical theatre to elementary school aged children.

I currently reside in Los Angeles.

As a vocal coach I am best able to hlep students find their natural voice and show them how to maneuver through it with ease. I teach fundamentals such as breath support, intonation, ear training, vocal dynamics, vocal
flexibility and basic music theory. My theory is that while the above are crucial fundamentals, they are yet functions that support an inherent intuition that every singer already has.

As a perfomrance coach I push students to acheive an honest and dynamic performance emotionally, physically and vocally. I create a very safe environment where students are encouraged to fail and continue to stretch their own pre conceived limits.

I'm excited to continue teaching and grow a base of students in Los Angeles or online.

Over 6 years of teaching experience, and a Master's Degree in Vocal Performance! I have taught all ages and experience levels and specialize in teaching young children how to sing in a vocally healthy way. I customize lesson plans to achieve your goals and have a 5-step training system which includes work on breath support, ear-training, healthy vocal technique, and repertoire of either your choice or my recommendation.

I am classically trained and have performed under the baton of world renowned conductor Lorin Maazel, and have attended the prestigious Aspen Opera Theatre as a Fellowship Opera Coach. However, this does not mean I only teach opera! In fact, most of my students are too young for opera or are more interested in musical theatre. I bring my knowledge of vocal health and healthy ways of singing, such as mixed voice, placement, and release of bad tension in addition to good breath support to ALL genres. No matter what genre you like to sing, healthy singing will ...

About Sophia
I am a professional opera coach and have subbed as a coach at the Kansas City Lyric Opera House. I have my Master's in Vocal Performance from the Conservatory at UMKC, and my Bachelor's of Music from Luther College. I have performed under the baton of Maestro Lorin Maazel and sung on stage with The Rolling Stones and Barry Manilow in addition to serving on faculty at summer opera programs after my fellowship as an opera coach at Aspen Opera Theatre.

Voice students can expect to improve their tone from week to week by learning healthy vocal technique. I have taught all ages and skill levels, and specialize in teaching younger children to sing in a vocally healthy way. Students learn about releasing tension, good breath support, placement, head/chest voice and mix, as well as solfege and ear training.

I have also been playing pi
ano for over 20 years and did competitive piano as a child, and won statewide and midwest regional competitions. Because of my piano background, I can record helpful tracks for each student, such as warm up tracks, as well as practice tracks.

My passion is teaching kids to sing in a vocally healthy way by building on basic foundational techniques such as good posture, good breath support, ear training and release of tension. As a child, I was told often that singers were born, not taught, and I am here to tell you that I learned how to sing well during my college and grad school years, and was not a "born" singer! I learned so much about healthy singing in school that I wish I had known when I was younger, so my personal goal is to install good vocally healthy habits in all of my students.
