I fully believe that music is beneficial to everyone that comes into contact with it; with small children, it enhances learning and cultivated concentration. With older kids, it boosts confidence and sharpens listening skills while using math, problem solving, and hand-eye coordination skills. Whether you are singing, playing piano, doing theory homework, or yan ear training course, I can help! I have been teaching for about 8 years and have been in the Dallas area since summer 2016. I teach privately and at several studios in the DFW area. I am finishing my Masters st SMU in Voice Performance and also received my undergraduate degree in Voic ... View Profile

Nancy Salwen's book, "The Fear of Singing Breakthrough Program" is therapy that anybody can use, even an experienced singer like myself. You see, Salwen redefines singing as a human act that everybody can learn how to express. It can be learned the same way we've honed our basic skills to read, write, speak, or walk. It hearkens back to the days when most Americans had a piano in their parlor, which most or all of the children would learn how to play. Salwen posits that musical expression belongs to, and is healthy for, all people. It can bring them together, it can turn you from sad to joyful, and vice versa. It helps us process our emotions as deeply as any therapy session, and this book is your ultimate guide in doing so. There is no other tome on the market offering this much guidance in tying music together with ... full review
I truly enjoyed my first lesson with Indigo. She's a wonderful instructor. She explains very clearly with a calm and precise approach. I truly feel she can teach me how to be a better guitarist in a structured, positive and comfortable way. She immediately put me at ease without judgement and without the dreaded "mansplaining" that I often got from male instructors in the past. I'm definitely coming back for more lessons.
We offer professional training in many different genres. We have helped many students prepare for their auditions for performances, bands, and shows. We also have many working professionals who seek out our vocal instruction for help with working on projecting their speaking voice when being used in a public speaking forum. Have you heard about football players taking ballet lessons? It is kind of like that but not as far removed. We also offer professional vocal workshops throughout the year, providing more opportunities to sing and speak in larger groups.
It all starts with our experienced and talented instructors - we were picky about our recruiting because we know that when you come to Guitar Center for lessons, you expect world-class expertise from your mentor. Our vocal instructors are extremely well-qualified, and we're proud to say they're very good at what they do. There's no better way to learn vocal technique than to study it with somebody who's walked the walk and knows exactly what it takes to succeed.
My teaching approach: I tailor my lessons to fit the students goals. Beginner students want to learn songs, not theory. So I get the student playing /singing before I focus on scales and theory. I want to teach the student what they want to learn as well as giving them the skills to be a good musician/vocalist. I also determine what your learning style is, so that I can effectively teach you in the way you learn best. I have over 14 years teaching experience in guitar and voice, and I teach songwriting and ukulele as well. I've been performing locally and internationally for over 7 years. My influences are: The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Patty ... View Profile
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.
For devoted musicians, instruments are almost like an extension of the body - but vocalists are the only ones who can truthfully say their body itself is an instrument. And what an instrument it is! There are as many unique voices as there are people in the world, so no two vocalists have exactly the same sound. What that means is simple: if you want an instrument that's like no other, your voice is it. All it takes is to learn how to unlock its potential, and that's where vocal lessons at Guitar Center come into the picture. We'll prepare you with the basic skills and knowledge you need for success, and guide you through the process of developing and fine-tuning your voice to bring out its musical potential.
This is a great book to teach little kids to match pitch and learn to read music. Every lesson is just at their level and fun so they like to learn! I highly suggest this book for those teaching private or group lessons or beginning choirs. This is the Very Young Beginner Series so it's geared toward ages 3-7. This also follows the Kolday method quite a bit, has extra songs in the back, a page for the student to color at home or in the classroom that goes along with the story the teacher or parent can help the student read and of course the song. There are also lessons in the back for the teacher! Oh, and recordings of the main songs (vocal track amd accompaniment) online! So awesome! I'm using this meathod book to teach a 3 1/2 year old who really seems to like it and ... full review
My experience in singing begins in 2005 in a youth chorus of my city in Mérida Venezuela. I started singing and vocal technique studies in that group, I sang some choral symphonies and I won prizes in my country of origin. Then in 2008 it became part of the Cantoria de Mérida group that allows me to deepen my knowledge in the area of academic singing. I received singing lessons with teachers who in turn received their training in Europe specifically in Catalonia Spain. There I made a number of symphonic choral productions and toured certain countries in Latin America and Europe represented Venezuela and in 2013 it won prizes a ... View Profile
There is not a more powerful tool in building confidence than overcoming the fear of public performance and public speaking. Vocal lessons teach students to control and train their body to relax while performing. Anxiety and performance-induced stress often translates into bad vocal performances. Many singers find themselves great singers in smaller, informal settings - in the recording studio or even the shower - and often find it challenging or impossible to reproduce the same quality performance in front of a larger audience. Our teachers will teach you how to overcome this fear and to release your inner confidence and full musical potential.
As a child matures into a teenager, it becomes increasingly more important for them to get private lessons, because this is when they can realize they can pursue a career - full-time or part-time gigs - in singing. Having a well-seasoned instructor coach the teen and give him or her the right guidance and support can help make their hopes of singing for a living more practical and realistic. A good coach can refer the student to the right information and people resources.
