Terry Little Music
About this pro
What makes me different from most vocal coaches and guitar teachers is that I am presently active in the music industry. I am currently recording in my professional recording studio-where other artists record as well.. I also am the Vice President of a guitar company and am directly immersed in the music business in my day to day life. I have performed in major venues performing for nationally touring artists. I have many contacts in many genres of music that I can use as a resource for my students. The most fulfilling thing about what I do is see the successes and artistic growth of my students. There is nothing more gratifying as having my students succeed. Actually, just this week one of my students auditioned for a children's choir at Carnegie Hall and got in. I was very excited because when he first came to me for lessons a year ago I told his parents that I saw exceptional raw talent in him. Seeing this young boy live up to the potential I thought he possessed almost brings tears to my eyes. Singing and playing music is a gift. Music is healing. For me to help others be able to tap into that on a higher level is more than I could ask for.
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lessons and Studio-60 per hour.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I occasionally go to New York city to get some vocal lessons with a top celebrity coach. I study Youtube tutorials by other vocal coaches and guitar teachers and I am reading some old Classical singing technique books. Owning a recording studio as well as being a guitar manufacturer I am always keeping up and seeking out information on the newest gear and technology. Occasionally I learn something from my students. I also spend an enormous amount of time exploring the uses of social media. An artist has to be tied in and have access to producing great social media. Between my business and guitar company I spend an enormous amount of time on it.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I loved singing and writing songs. I got myself a job at a music store and bought a guitar and learned from there. Within 6 months of the purchase of my guitar I was getting paid to play in coffee houses. Once I started recording I became interested in learning that and got an internship at a recording studio, which led to a job doing live sound, which led to more shows and it evolved to where I am today.
