Riley could not even look adults in the eye when speaking to them when Steve began teaching her at age 10. But by the time she graduated high school at 18, she had blossomed into a very powerful, skilled, and controlled singer who had starred in several school productions and won several awards and accolades such as the NJ NATS award and the NJ All-State Honors Choir.
I teach group lessons for newborn to 9 1/2 yrs: newborn - 18 mos, 18 mos - 3 1/2 yrs, 3 1/2 - 4 1/2 yrs, 4 1/2 - 61/2 and group Piano lessons for ages 6 1/2 to 9 1/2. I have taught young children for 25 years at 1st Methodist Church in Grapevine. We sing, dance, and play instruments. We work on duple and triple meter as well as learn solfeggio.  It's fun and educational! 

Lessons not booked in calendar at least 24 hours in advance of the lesson start time cannot be set to student no-show status. Why? Booking a lesson in your calender sends out notification to student on where and when they should be for their lesson and notifies them to our 24 hour cancellation policy. Without these notices we can not ensure that student was aware of the lesson in question or of our policy.
If you're wondering, "Am I a good singer?", you may be tempted to get advice and input from the Internet via one of the many "rate my voice" type of websites. Here, Liz T. explains the pros and cons of going this route...   Many singers are curious to know what kind of feedback they'll receive if they post a video or clip of themselves singing on a “rate my voice” website, such as midomi.com, singist.com, and even YouTube. I'm here to tell you the pros and cons of these websites and how

If your child loves to sing, you probably knew it before they could talk. While you should always encourage singing, most children under the age of 7 generally don't have the focus or patience needed for formal singing lessons. With persistence and motivation some kids have learned to play sing at some impressively young ages, but it really comes down to is the individual attitude and maturity level of the student. 
I had struggled with my singing for a while, and thought i was losing what talent i had. I bought this book to see if it would help me a little. It is maybe the second or the third of its kind i have bought over the years, so i didn't have my hopes too high. Well, it helped me SO MUCH. My voice has improved so much in a short time. I have really stretched my vocal cords using her techniques. I actually really enjoyed the whole process, and no longer feel like my singing talent is dwindling. My voice is getting stronger. I love the exercises and particularly the breathing techniques.
