About Darla

Hello, I am a professional musician with over 21 years of service as a military bandsmen. I've been stationed all over the world and have had the privilege to perform in some of the greatest concert halls. I love to work with students of all ages and can teach beginning-intermediate piano, and beginning-advanced flute. Prior to joining the military, I taught general music in the Texas Public School system. I have a bachelor€'™s degree in music education from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am a very active flutist in this area, performing with The Tidewater Winds, The Hampton Roads Phi
lharmonic, and various small chamber groups.

I believe in creating a very positive environment for my students. I am very patient and upbeat. Whether you are a beginner, or more advanced, I can tailor the lessons to your needs. I will give you a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music in a creative and fun way! I enjoy working with students of all ages. If you are just starting to learn, or have decided to come back to music lessons, I believe you will enjoy studying with me! ***Also, be advised, that if you are a beginner, I only teach 30 minute lessons! This is best for all beginners, whether a young student, or an adult student!! (Also, FYI, we do have cats in our home!)

Cara M.

Norfolk, VA

About Cara

Hi there! My name is Cara Isadora McKinney. I am an award winning vocalist and experienced performer who loves to teach singing. My goal is to demystify vocal technique for students and help them “find their voice" pretty quickly with patience and care in a safe and friendly environment. In a relaxed, positive, and supportive atmosphere; students will improve their breath control and support, projection, phrase length, range, intonation, quality, comfort, stage performance and presentation skills, as well as other technical and stylistic aspects. I am currently available to teach lessons at my
studio, at your home, and online.

My credentials and affiliations include a Bachelor's in Vocal Music from Lamar University, Hurrah Players, Governor's School for the Arts, and VA Opera. I specialize in opera and musical theater. I also record and perform pop, rock, R&B, and jazz. Trained by some of the best artists and teachers in Virginia and Texas, I have gained extensive knowledge in vocal pedagogy that has allowed me to become versed in numerous styles and crossover genres. Contact me and we can discuss in more detail want you are looking for in a voice teacher, your vocal goals and experiences, as well as availability and location details. Do not miss the opportunity to work with someone who is really dedicated to nurturing voices and serving art in a down to earth way and will get you where you want to go fast.

Cara is a library of information and tools to help you learn how to sing. She encourages her students to practice and learn proper form. With her help I've found my voice and am encouraged to continue perfecting it. She also helped me with some bad habits that I had picked up but now know better. I highly recommend Cara and she is a true professional with a beautiful voice who knows how to teach!

I only had one lesson with Cara but she was very experienced and did her best to bring out the singer in me. She found songs that would suit me and she put a lot of effort into making that first lesson as valuable to me as it could be. I really felt like she cared deeply about my progress which meant a lot to me.

I would highly recommend Mike Behlmar for anyone who is looking to learn how to play drums…no matter what skill level you are at.
When our 7 year old son showed an interest in learning to play drums, we were fortunate to have been referred to Mike by a good friend at our church who played in the worship band. Our friend said that he himself had taken advanced lessons with Mike and he knew that Mike was very good at teaching at any skill level, beginner on up.
Mike has always been very patient and encouraging to our son on learning the basics of playing drums. He has been able to not only teach the basics but, he has done it in a way that was both entertaining and instructional at the same time. Our son loves to play and actually enjoys practicing! You can’t say that about most kids learning an instrument!
Mike has introduced various types of music in his instruction…anything from Rock, Blues, R&B, Oldies, etc. Our son has been able to learn the basics and has been able advance beyond the basics in playing these various styles of music.
Our son is 9 now and he is still taking lessons from Mike and he continues to improve in his ability to play drums. It has been a joy to see him grow and develop in his skills and still be challenged and encouraged to enhance his drumming skills.
If you or your kids want to learn how to play drums, or if you are wanting to “step up to the next level” in your skills and you would like to learn from someone who has the ability to teach, and who loves to teach…then you need to contact Mike Behlmar.

I have been taking lessons from Mike for several years, recently increasing my lesson time from one half hour per week to one hour. I have found Mike very knowledgeable as a drummer, a true professional. As a teacher is he outstanding also – he is very patient when needed, but also knows when and where to “push” to get skill growth. He has a talent for breaking down something seemingly complex into smaller understandable pieces, and thus making it learnable. My experience with him has been excellent, and I heartily recommend him to young drummers, and to older individuals, like myself.

Michael was very patient with my daughter and explained things to her using examples she could relate to and understand. She knocked it out of the park in her school performance thanks to Mike! She has been taking lessons for over a year and out of many activities she has tried, this is one she wants to keep taking lessons for.
