Amy R.

Peoria, AZ

Learn to sing classically (with projection, clear open vowels, and various vocal skills & techniques) in english, german, french, and italian!

About Amy

My name is Amy and I teach Voice, Piano, and Music Theory! I am originally from Racine/Milwaukee, WI and have been a musician since I was young. I believe music is a universal language that connects us all on a deeper level. There is something so pure, beautiful, and genuine in music. It has the capability to move us to tears, feel empowered, or even break out in laughter. Sharing and connecting with others is what music is all about. I have loved music my entire life and enjoy bringing my passion and expertise to my students!

*** Lesson Details ***
Taking lessons is a fun and exciting exp
erience! However, learning to play an instrument (or sing) is not easy. It takes practice, focus, dedication, and hard work. We set up a plan at the beginning of lessons to ensure success!

Lessons are flexible, yet focused. It is important to set a routine and consistently stick to it if you want to see results. While I understand that we all have busy weeks, I do believe that consistent practice is essential to success.

Lessons are geared towards you as the student. We set up our lessons based on your musical goals. Voice Lessons: We begin here by focusing on building healthy singing habits, skill building, technique, range expansion, performing skills, diction, and expression. This is usually done from studying musical theater music. With musical theater, we get all the formal "classical rules" with a modern twist. From there we focus on the specialty each student is interested in - whether you want to audition for American Idol, prepare to major in voice in college, or be a Broadway star, we will focus on meeting your goals!

*Within 6 months you will see range expansion, improved accuracy & control, increase in breath control & capacity, as well as improved performance and expression skills!

**Musical theater book/cd purchase is required (discussed at first lesson). Students also need a notebook and pencil!

Piano Lessons: Studying classical piano will give you the tools and foundation that you need to pursue any other genre of music! Students will learn how to read and write music, hand position/posture, phrasing, texture, hand coordination & strength, discipline, music terms, dynamics, speed & accuracy, ear training, and much more through interactive lessons and games! Students will also learn a variety of music genres (including classical, jazz, musical theater, music in movies, rock and roll, and folk songs!).

*The level of success you see with piano is directly related to how much you practice. If you practice on a consistent basis, you will be reading music in both clefs (treble & bass) and playing both hands together within 6 months. **Alfred Piano Lesson book, Theory book, and Technic book are used. (purchase required). Students will also need a notebook and pencil. NOTES:

*Lessons are varied. You will learn all needed skills, but we will use various methods including worksheets, games, rhythm instruments, etc.

*** Studio Equipment ***
A piano keyboard is provided. Students are expected to bring their notebook, pencil, and method book(s) that we have been working out of.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have all supplemental things needed for lessons (worksheets, rhythm instruments, etc). I expect students to have the book(s) we are working out of, a metronome (or app), and the instrument needed (piano/keyboard).

*** Specialties ***
I usually use Alfred piano method books for piano. For other instruments/subjects I focus on gearing lessons toward the student.

Amy is wonderful!

I've been with Amy for just over a year now, having "0" experience in the beginning. I'm so glad that I found her. Amy is a great teacher. She's professional, talented and experienced, patient, flexible and super easy-going.
As a beginner, playing the piano can be challenging and frustrating. Amy is encouraging, even when I think I'm doing poorly. She identifies difficulties and explains/demonstrates helpful corrections. I have learned a lot in my first year and I highly recommend her as a teacher. Thank you, Amy!!

My kids love Amy!

My daughters are currently taking lessons with Amy to learn to play piano. They are really enjoying themselves and have learned so much already. Amy is very professional to work with and has a great method of teaching. She leaves specific instructions for what to work on every week. We are very happy to have found such a great source for music instruction!

Best Music Teacher Ever!

I have grown so much musically because of what I've learned from Miss Amy. She has taught me so much about my voice and being confident on stage, I even got a solo this year at school! I have learned a lot about diction, expanding my range, making a clear sound, and each class is so much fun!

Sarah C.

Phoenix, AZ

Opera is a unique style of classical music in which the singer acts out the story being told while singing. It involves not only proper singing, but also learning to portray characters visibly through our actions and more importantly, through how we sound. Everyone's voice is different and not all roles are suitable for each person, but there are a wide variety of characters to choose from.

About Sarah

I am a classically trained singer who graduated from Cedarville University with my Bachelor's of Music degree. While I love to sing opera, I also enjoy singing pop, country and other music styles. I currently sing with the Phoenix Opera and continue to study with the Phoenix Opera co-founders.

I have taught people of all ages and backgrounds including children, adults, jazz singers, and a professional country artist. I continue to teach a variety of students with many different goals. Because I have had different voice coaches over the years, I have learned many different teaching s
tyles and techniques that I use to help my own students progress.

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to encourage my students! I believe that recognizing improvement and rewarding it increases the student's desire to progress.

With that in mind, I start every lesson warming up the voice with exercises that teach free and easy singing with proper breath control. The student also learns sight-reading and some music theory. I use the same method when teaching songs, but as the student progresses, they learn to apply the techniques and recognize how to improve the song on their own. As they improve, they will be able to sing more challenging music.

Because every student has their own unique goal, they are expected to purchase music and books accordingly. I prefer my students record their lessons to help facilitate their practice. I strongly encourage the purchase of a recording device if you do not already have one, or at the very least to bring a note-book.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in classical singing and opera. I believe that having a good foundation of correct breathing, placement of sound and relaxed singing is important for any music style. When the voice as an instrument is taken care of properly, any style of music is possible. I teach these three things as fundamentals to every student no matter what genre of music they want to sing in. We then work from there to add the stylistic nuances that separate genres.

Patti G.

Glendale, AZ

My own singing career was mostly on the operatic stage, singing lead roles with major opera companies. Developing proper technique and understanding how the voice works is essential to sustain the demands of a performing career. Very few voice teachers have actually had performing careers. I bring more than 30 years of professional performing experience. I know what it takes to succeed in this business.

About Patti

I have 30 years of teaching experience and have enjoyed a successful singing, teaching and conducting career in the US and Australia. I have excellent piano skills and can sight-read and play most piano accompaniments for my voice students. No two students are alike so I teach everyone according to their needs and their learning style. I have an exceptional understanding of the voice and communicate using tangible imagery to produce excellent results. I work with all levels of singers from beginners to career level in Broadway, Pop and Classical styles. Beyond university training, I have had
training from teachers and coaches from the Metropolitan Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Arizona Opera and many others.
With piano, again, technique is important but lessons must be FUN! I like using innovative ideas and materials so that learning is exciting.

Practice is important for progress so the more you practice the faster you progress.

Because there is always more to learn, I continue to study and attend master-classes and workshops so I can be the best teacher I can be.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always want my students to leave their lessons knowing that they are better at the end of the lesson than they were at the beginning. Lessons are all about skill-building, so fundamentals of technique, theory and repertoire are included elements. I'm pretty laid back but know that practice is essential to progress. To that end, I always want my students to understand how to practice, not just what to practice. Practice doesn't make perfect, it makes permanent! My goal as a teacher is not just to help you achieve your goals, but to give you the ability to build on your own skills by knowing the how and the why, not just the what.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the music room, 5'8" grand piano, computer, iPad, Apple TV, music stands, good lighting

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must have a piano that is tuned and in good working order or a full 88-key weighted action keyboard. Voice students must provide a recording device. All students will be required to purchase music books.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching the Italian school of "bel canto" singing. This technique provides complete connection of breath, voice and body and applies to all styles of singing.

For piano, I don't adhere to any one method. I teach practical, "real world" piano skills including playing chords and improvisation.

I have a Level 1 AZ Fingerprint Clearance Card.

Patti is a phenomenal musician and teacher

Patti is the most effective music teacher I have worked with. She has an intimate and readily communicated knowledge of vocal technique, and crucially, where problems can arise. She has an intuitive awareness of the voice in a way that can only come from extensive professional experience in performance and education. In a relatively short space of time I have learnt a great deal and grown vocally beyond what I thought I would be capable of.

I cannot recommend Patti highly enough.

Nanette G.

Tolleson, AZ

I use the bel canto method. I focus on getting the voice out of the throat.

About Nanette

I started studying piano and singing from a very young age. I used to make my friends come over and watch me perform (karaoke style--before karaoke was big) when i was in the 4th grade. My greatest love is music, performing music, and sharing it with others. As a singer i have studied all types of music, but my favorite- and what i excel at- is opera.

I have taken private voice and piano lessons constantly since the age of 5, and have studied opera performance and music theory in college. I perform locally around the community as a singer, direct the church choir, and occasionally
accompany soloists on the piano. I have taught private lessons in voice and piano for 5 years and i greatly enjoy the one on one experience of teaching private lessons.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want my students to enjoy the time they spend with me. I believe in a very relaxed, comfortable environment, where students feel they can express themselves, but it is still an environment where time is maximized. In piano, 10-15 min is devoted to theory, scales, and chords, then we work on songs, some of my choosing and some of the students choosing. In voice we spend about 10-15 minutes on warm-ups and the rest of the time is devoted to songs. Again, there are songs that i choose for the students according to the needs of their voice and development, but i also allow the student to bring things he/she wants to learn for fun.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a sound system and microphone. i have my iPod hooked up to the sound system to play karaoke music.

*** Specialties ***
In piano I am partial to the John Thompson method. I also spend a portion of each lesson on scales and music theory.
In voice, I specialize in bel canto. The most beautiful sounds come when you are not straining the voice. I work on getting it out of the throat and into the mask.

**i do not recommend every other week lessons. take lessons does offer them, but i have not seen many students thrive or progress with that much time in between lessons.

Cassandra C.

Phoenix, AZ

About Cassandra

Welcome to Studio C! I graduated with honors from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, earning a Master of Music in Voice Performance. I also hold a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University. An emerging opera singer myself, I sing with Arizona Opera in Phoenix and Tucson.

I am available for private voice lessons serving the Phoenix metro area in historic Central Phoenix. Students learn to let go of inhibitions, release tensions, find a natural voice, and let that voice grow. Studying both classical and music theater repertoire and techniques, students develop effective breathing
, a supported tone, and an agile voice suitable for any genre of singing. Motivated students who have a musical background are most successful in my studio.

I'm pretty down to earth and strive to create a fun and encouraging learning environment. Lessons include breathing exercises, a variety of vocalizes aimed to strengthen the voice, kinesthetic exercises, repertoire in multiple languages, musical expression, and sight singing.

Also a violinist, lover of music theater, jazz, opera, all things DIY and outdoors, I offer a well rounded approach to music lessons. Dedicated students always love to meet my pet chinchilla after lessons too!

*** Lesson Details ***
Weekly 40 minute lessons are preferred, but can be customized to fit the student's needs.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Students should have access to a keyboard or piano at home to practice.

*** Specialties ***
Beginners through advanced; opera, music theater, jazz, and popular music.
