I am a New York City based Jazz singer and have been teaching singing for over 2 decades and performing for longer. My teaching methods often bring about fast and dramatic results!
I have many tools to offer that build the confidence so necessary for singers. Some areas of focus include whole body breathing, how to warm-up, vocal technique, ear training, musicianship skills, performance skills & singing the songs you love. Vocal exercises focus on opening and freeing the voice, as you become more aware of resonance areas, tuning up (where are those pitches, really?)strength, range and much more. Lessons are individualized to cater to specific needs. I often accompany my students on piano as they work on making songs their own.
For those students who are interested singing jazz we delve into to world of free improvisation and scat singing, and creating a solo.
I work with singers of all levels and genres of music with the exception of classical.
I offer performance opportunities to my students. Please visit my website: www.dorilevine.com

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 vocal technique! A piece of paper from a University 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 still performing, but an expert in the field of vocal science and an innovator in contemporary singing techniques.

My name is Kevin Richards and I'm a currently performing, professional musician 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 singers from all genres and backgrounds learn new, cutting edge singing techniques. Unlike other teachers, I don't want to change your style - I want you to sound like you - only better!

* Extend Your Range by an Octave
* Eliminate Your Break - no more cracks or breaks between notes
* Increase Your Power - Get Boomy! 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.

LEARN HOW TO PLAY ACOUSTIC GUITAR


If you would like to learn how to play acoustic guitar, my name is John, and I'm a longtime guitarist and teacher offering organized, step-by-step lessons for aspiring guitarists and music students, from absolute beginners to experienced players.


Structured Lessons That Will Teach You:

  • NOTES
  • CHORDS
  • STRUMMING PATTERNS
  • FINGERPICKING
  • MUSIC THEORY
  • HOW TO READ MUSIC
  • HOW TO READ TABLATURE
  • HOW TO READ CHORD CHARTS
  • HOW TO PLAY SONGS
  • HOW TO ACCOMPANY YOURSELF WHILE SINGING
  • HOW TO PLAY IN THE STYLE/S OF YOUR CHOICE
  • HOW TO WRITE YOUR OWN SONGS

    ...and much more.

  • Here's what some of those who've taken lessons with me have said:

    "Thanks John - I'm playing right now - I just LOVE my guitar and playing.. Thanks to you! I will try to come on Monday night after work if that is OK with you. Thank you - you are really a great instructor.... it really inspired me once again. :-) "
    -Mary L.

    "John is a great, patient teacher. As an adult with absolutely no experience, I was hesitant to start learning, but John has taken me much further than I thought I'd go. After just six months, I've learned songs, and my guitar-playing friends have been amazed at the depth of theory and technique I've picked up. I highly recommend John to beginners, and his depth of knowledge would be great for practiced guitarists!"
    -Bob C.

    "Man, you wouldn't happen to have any of your famous chord progression sheets laying around would you? I am looking for new material and your lessons always clicked with me. I figured out my first song today!"
    -Brandon W.

    "All the printed chord charts and explanations you gave me are really helpful, I am starting to understand some of the theory that you talked about in class, it's kind of awesome."
    -Nitika N.

    "I enjoyed our lesson today, and would like to schedule another one for next week. Does Wednesday at 8 work again for you?"
    -Rob E.

    "I liked your training. I will reschedule for next Saturday, August 7 @ 12pm."
    -Diana B.

    "I just wanted to let you know that I liked your lesson, thank you very much, and I would definitely like to continue having you as my teacher...you are a great instructor."
    -Eric

    At the end of each lesson, you'll retain access to what you've learned through take-home materials you'll be given that you can use to practice with at home.



    Over 30 years of playing experience, and more than 6 years' worth of teaching. Lessons take place in my Lower East Side apartment, with afternoon and evening classes available. $30.00/hr. Contact me to schedule, or to find out more.

    I'm an award-winning composer and pianist offering piano and music theory lessons. I work in studios, film and TV, and I teach at my home studio in NYC.

    I have a degree at Berklee College of Music, where I've been awarded with the prestigious Herb Pomeroy Award for outstanding composition and arrangements, and I graduated with honors in 2007.

    Since then, I've been recording albums and piano tracks and I've been touring with many artists around the globe. I'm also an active film composer, scoring national and international feature films.

    I love to teach and pass my knowledge to the students and see how they build up their musicianship.

    I can proudly say that many of my students became professional musicians and now they are pursuing a career in music.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Get the music that's in your head out to your speakers.

    Learn tried and tested shortcuts that will cut the amount of time spent using your mouse & keyboard and let you focus on your creative potential! Having spent 5+ years producing full-time, I can cover EVERY area of production:

    * Setup / Optimization / Custom Templates
    * Brainstorming Ideas / Recording / Live-Looping
    * Composition & Arrangement
    * Bussing / FX / Automation Tweaks
    * Mixing, Stereo Imaging, EQ & Compression
    * Post-Production & Mastering

    And for those of you who are already producing, but looking to fine-tune your skills, we can delve into the custom sound design realm / in-depth synthesis / advanced multi-parameter effects & even go as far as cross-DAW MIDI & IAC routing.

    Genre-wise...
    My primary specialty is club bangers (Dubstep, Moombahton, Trap, Hip-Hop, House and basically every variation of future-bass). However, I have an extremely extensive background in live music (many variations of Rock, Reggae, Big Band, Funk, etc.) Having played in live bands in the past & knowing how to mix live instruments (and have them translate well in the studio) is an entirely different approach compared to EDM production.

    As far as lesson plan goes...
    You choose the pace that works for you and how in-depth you want to get. We can use your studio space or mine (I have near-field referencing monitors with bypassable sub, the latest Ableton Suite 9 with a slew of third-party VST effects & instruments, Ableton PUSH & 5 other MIDI controllers as well as several percussion instruments and guitars).
