    Nine Muses Studio

    (12 reviews)

    At Nine Muses Studio, we believe anyone can be a musician. If you have a passion for music and a willingness to learn, you can become a great singer. Whether you're aiming for a career as a musician, preparing for a big audition, planning to enter a competition, or want to be the best singer in your church choir, voice lessons can help you on your path to excellence. Nine Muses Studio teaches a variety of styles, including classical, musical theater, jazz, and various contemporary genres. Located in South Austin, Nine Muses directs students on a path to becoming better musicians. Our instruction includes vocal techniques, breath support, musicality, music theory, vocal pedagogy, sight reading, and performance techniques. Recitals throughout the year offer a chance for each student to practice performing for an audience, and also provide an opportunity for family and friends to celebrate their progress. Confidence in singing comes from learning the intricacies of your own voice: How it works, how to use it, how to control it, and knowing how to fix things that may go wrong. Once technique is learned, a singer begins to truly understand their voice and what they're capable of. Once they have control, they have confidence. Once they have confidence, they're ready for that solo, ready for that audition, and ready for that big performance in front of hundreds of people.

    Mike Dubose Music

    I'm a singer, songwriter, and guitarist who can play solo acoustic as well as with my band, Mike Dubose and The Dissidents. I'm also able to run sound (for another act). I just released an acoustic CD called "Head Above Water" produced by Bill Teags, and recorded/mixed by legendary Grammy-winning engineer/producer Stuart Sullivan (Willie Nelson, Sublime, James McMurtry, Jimmie Vaughan, and many more). Mike Dubose is what Bob Dylan would sound like if he had grown up listening to punk rock! Already critically acclaimed, Mike is a homegrown Austin, TX singer-songwriter. Having grown up around the talent that has sprung out of Austin, such as James McMurtry and Tish Hinojosa, Mike has shared the stage with Willie Nelson, Lucinda Williams, Pete Seeger, Elliott Smith, Indigo Girls, Foo Fighters, Son Volt and Wilco. When the CD "Head Above Water" was originally discussed, it was going to be a total rock-band project. However, once inside Wire Studio in Austin, it quickly became evident that an acoustic approach suited the songs. Mike always writes on acoustic guitar, so it seemed only natural that the audience should get to experience the songs as they were written. With the engineering expertise of Stuart Sullivan, producer Bill Teags enlisted the help of local Austin musicians Danny Levin (cello), Amanda Kitchens (accordion), Sumner Erickson (tuba), and Diana Bruschke (backing vocals), to bring life to Mike's musical ideas. Each song on this CD has a story that is told through well-crafted and thought-provoking lyrics. Accustomed to the painful side of life while vowing never to give in to any affliction, Mike's lyrics bring you into each story. You can feel the raw emotion just underneath the surface, waiting to capture your mind and draw you in. For example, "Head Above Water" is about struggling with depression and the will to survive through a painful healing process. "George the Prophet" is a commentary about the damage to our liberties that is prevalent in American politics, and how we are allowing ourselves to be morphed into an Orwellian state. Pain, anger, hurt, and joy are all exposed in "Jane Doe #5", a song about two women, and how irrational life can turn out. - Review of "Head Above Water" from CDBaby So, give me a call, and we'll discuss your project!

  • HeartStrings - Solo Acoustic Guitar

    (1 reviews)

    The breadth of my repertoire spans many genres: classical, Broadway musicals, British invasion, singer/songwriter, early country, eighties, modern, and a few in between. This allows clients to plan out the musical vibe of their event. For example, a bride and groom may want traditional ceremony music to be followed by more contemporary songs during a cocktail hour or dinner. Guitar performance is my art and my self expression. My wanting to perform is like an itch that constantly needs scratching.

  • Bob Koeffler's Services

    (1 reviews)

    My creativity is what stands out most. I've written over 200 songs, one was used in the dance band I was in. I've invented a new cha cha cha dance step. I started my gardening without any knowledge and created a successful garden with pictures to prove it. Since then, I have gathered a wealth of information to help with gardening. My websites also attest to my creativity as they are colorful and eyecatching. The lady on Thumbtack, Heather, complimented me on the other websites I have on Thumbtack. My regular occupation is elementry school substitute school teacher. What I like most about the 4 other things I do is they offer me the opportunity to be creative on my own time. I now use my music talent to play hymns for the church class I attend. I don't get paid for that but word of mouth could drive some music jobs my way

Thumbtack Spotlight

HeartStrings - Solo Acoustic Guitar

(1 review)

What do you love about your job?

I love entertaining people.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

When I got married in a Catholic church, I had to choose from very limited musical options. Being a musician, I would love to have the ability to customize my wedding according to my own personal tastes. I believe that a wedding or any event should include music that is a reflection of the hosting parties. That little, personal touch, can make a world of difference. As any good event coordinator will tell you, it's all in the details.
