Do you sing Rock, Metal, Pop, Punk but don't want to go to a vocal coach with an Opera, Jazz or a Musical Theater background? Are you a Classically trained singer looking to do contemporary music and having trouble transitioning style? Are you a beginner or musician and don't know where to start to learn how to sing?

Don't be mislead by voice teachers or coaches touting their degrees in "Music". That doesn't qualify them to teach voice! A piece of paper means nothing if you haven't proved yourself in the real world singing in front of thousands and know how to actually teach someone what you know and can do. Learn from a professional not only out there singing, but an expert in the field of vocal science and an innovator in contemporary extreme singing techniques.

My name is Kevin Richards and I'm a currently performing, professional Rock singer with over 20 years experience in the music business. I've sang to over 80,000 people in my career. I'm also the author and creator of the "Breaking the Chains" CD Vocal program sold in 90 countries worldwide. I help contemporary singers learn new, extreme singing techniques. Unlike other teachers, I don't want to change your vocal style - I want you to sound like you - only better!

* Extend Your Range
* Eliminate Your Break - no more cracks or breaks between notes
* Increase Your Power - deliver every song with conviction & presence
* Develop Stamina - sing for hours without losing your voice

Don't be content to just be a great singer - Become a great performer.

    Hi,

    My name is Tad McCully, I'm a pro drummer who grew up here in nyc. I've been teaching in the New York area both privately and in schools since 1993. I offer one-on-one lessons either at your home or in my studio in the Music Building, located at 39th st. & 8th ave (one block from train station). My lessons are well-planned, quality affordable studies, lasting 30 (ages 6-12), 45, or 60 minutes (adults). I also offer practice time, on my Yamaha studio kit, at a very affordable hourly rate--this is available to weekly students only.

    In my lessons I cover 'beginner' topics such as GRIP, RUDIMENTS (stickings) and BASIC READING of rhythmic notation (don't worry, it's not that difficult or scary) on the snare drum. Basic drumset skills are also covered, such as 3- and 4-way coordination and you will ultimately graduate to playing along with sequenced music (which I write for students), as well as your own CDs (teacher approved).

    For more advanced students, I focus more on hand technique, reading (both advanced snare drum studies and chart reading for drum set) and fill/soloing vocabulary. Tuning and set up is a specialty of mine, and I have spent hours and hours studying, learning and mastering both. (believe it or not, the greatest drummers generally all set up their drums/cymbals in a similar way.)

    HERE ARE SOME OF MY CURRENT STUDENTS ('drum recital' 4/20/14) :

    3-year student: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u6ofTEn-ox0
    4-year student: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NbmKW9-GuCc
    6-year student: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18b07PV7_aY
    (None of these people had picked up a drum stick before!)

    I HAVE ALSO TAUGHT: Ray Kelly (NYPD Police Commissioner)
    Koren Zailckas (NY Times best-selling author)
    Eric Thal (movie actor)
    Haley Joel Osment (movie actor)
    Please check me out at: http://www.reverbnation.com/tadmccully (mp3s, bio, videos, etc.) ALSO: http://www.become-a-real-drummer.com



    **I NOW ACCEPT CREDIT CARDS AND PAYPAL.

    TEACHING / PRACTICE HOURS:

    Monday: 3:30-9:00pm
    Tuesday: 3-7pm
    Wednesday: 7-10pm
    Thursday: 3:30-9pm
    Saturday: 4-8pm
    Sunday: noon-6pm

    Michelle Shuttleworth Towler is an enthusiastic and patient professional voice teacher as well as a performer in New York City. Her adult students have been cast in shows, tours, film and television. She has considerable experience preparing young students for NYC arts programs such as LaGuardia High School of the Performing Arts, Frank Sinatra School for the Performing Arts, The Professional Children's School, Manhattan School of Music Pre-College Program, The National Children’s Chorus and CAP 21 as well as the prestigious Interlochen Arts Program.

    In addition to teaching, Michelle is a co-founder/owner of Footlights Entertainment, an NYC-based company providing entertainment for high end private and corporate events, as well as director of the Buck Hill Sky Top Music Festival Educational Outreach Program. Michelle is a member of AEA (Actor's Equity Assiciation), NYSTA (New York Singing Teachers' Association) and NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing).

    Michelle specializes in creating highly customized lesson plans centered around your individual voice and goals. Focus is always placed on breathing and vocal technique, but your objectives may vary:

    * Basic - Intermediate - Advanced Vocal Technique
    * Healthy Sound Production
    * Expansion of Range
    * Breath Support
    * Building Audition Book Reperatoire
    * Audition Prep
    * Performance Techniques
    * Ear Training
    * Harmonization
    * Reading Music
    * Various Music Styles

    Convenient location in Sunnyside via 7 train! Easy access to highway!

    **Discounted monthly packages available**

    www.singingvoicenyc.com

    From the very first time I met Michelle, I felt comfortable and completely at ease. Not only did I find her personable and professional, but I felt confident that she would actually be able to help me attain my vocal needs and goals. From extracting self confidence to exploring strengths and weaknesses, to uncovering the perfect audition song, and pinpointing placement of sound, she has been a focal point of knowledge. Her expertise in the physical areas where sound is produced will amaze and inspire you--and you'll be shocked to find that knowing those things makes a difference! Michelle's patience and passion for helping is evident in every lesson. She is firm but fun. The ability she has to mold the human voice is astonishing and at times I have found I don't even recognize myself! She pushes you to do your best and will go to great lengths to ensure your comfort and overall happiness. - Mandy TV/film/theater actress New York, NY

    I had always wanted to sing. But I didn't have the confidence that I could actually sing, and I remember being scared to death to go to the first lesson. The fact that Michelle was so warm and welcoming right away allowed me to relax. She made a point to stress what I was doing right when we began our basic exercises. My confidence increased, and after only the first four classes I noticed improvement. Michelle remembers your tendencies and can get you to see and correct things that may be holding you back. She knows how to get you to produce sound in a way that will further your development. Three and a half years later, after maybe 100 lessons or so, the improvement I have noticed is dramatic. I have sung for my mother, my father, complete strangers, and friends. I have developed the awareness to correct myself when I practice on my own. This is invaluable because, as Michelle has told me repeatedly, the more your practice, and practice knowledgeably, the greater your improvements will be. What it has done for my confidence and how it has changed my life is impossible to put into words, but you'll understand it after your first month of lessons. - Tony, Casting Director, New York, NY
