Hello! My name is Kelsi Phillips and I love music. Music is everything to me. It's why I get out of bed in the morning, and something I love even more than just listening to it, is playing it. I love it and I would love to share my passion for it with you. We can do anything we put our minds to and I believe that if you want to become the best musician in the world, you can! I teach everything by ear, I don't read music. But a lot of people can't do that which is amazing in my book. But I will do the best I can to help you on this journey to learning the greatness of music. ... View Profile

Selecting the right repertoire is a big part of a successful audition -- but be careful, as there are so many overdone musical theatre audition songs out there. Here, Molly R. shares six songs to avoid... and what to try instead!   With musical theatre auditions, often the toughest part isn't the audition itself, but instead making a decision on what to sing. I’m here to help narrow it down by telling you what NOT to sing in an audition -- the overdone musical theatre audition songs.
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! 
Breathing is much more complex than we realise. We do it every day without thinking - but what is really happening when we breathe, and is there a certain way to breath for singing? This lecture will demystify what is taking place in the body when you breathe. A description of how the intercostal muscles, the diaphragm, lungs and ribcage work together to produce breath effective for singing and speaking. Includes diagrams.

Singing isn't easy, especially if you want to do it well, but Siv's book is just such a great help. He gives detailed information not only on singing in tune but also on breathing, tone, and warmups. His suggestions are thoughtful and definitely work, and are an ideal place to start for a beginner like me. I'm so excited about singing and so happy that I have all the help I need, right from this book!
Rodolfo is as good as it gets. He is a highly experienced teacher who has been studying the voice for years. He knows the ins and outs of every component of the voice, and strictly focuses on technique, and his training regime reflects this. More so, he has worked with students all across the music spectrum in all genres, and cares GREATLY about your future as a musician, and works selflessly to help you achieve your personal goals with music. I've taken 3 lessons with Rodolfo, and my voice has improved incrementally already. LOOK NO FURTHER, trust me!
