  • The Singer Studio

    (32 reviews)

    Instruction at The SingerStudio is based on many years of vocal study and instruction at the University level as well as years of professional experience as a National Recording artist and solo vocalist. Here I have achieved great success with all of my students in all singing genres from country, R&B and Pop to classical to jazz and everything in-between. Before I created the SingerStudio I owned a very successful talent agency and booked nationally. I have a wealth of understanding in the music business and know how to help the beginning singer ground themselves and the aspiring artist launch their career. We also help with songwriting if desired as I encourage every student to find their inner voice. The best part of teaching someone to sing is helping them find their own unique voice and style. I love opening the door to healthy singing so that my students can access it for themselves.

  • Morgan Henry

    (22 reviews)

    I have lots of reviews on different sites that are all positive. It seems people find I listen and teach well. That I'm easy to work with and I can make learning the guitar fun. In some ways I guess I'm overqualified - I've been in over 50 bands in over 40 years. I've studied music, worked in recording studios, and done sound for bands. I even repair guitars in my in-house repair shop. There isn't much my students want to know about that I haven't done quite a lot of in my life. Having worked in industry teaching, and having taught other things besides music, I've learned the key is to listen closely and then work hard to make concepts simple when explaining them. I have a lot of fun teaching my students and we all feel like friends. Enjoying what I do is pretty infectious. I love teaching and sharing something I know that makes other people feel good. I love enabling others to achieve their goals. I love helping others by sharing anything I know, especially if others have been unable to explain it to my student. I love "watching the lights come on!"

  • Barbara Ryan

    (17 reviews)

    I trained classically for 10 years with high powered teachers that included Metropolitan Opera singers and students of the late, great Todd Duncan. None of them prepared me for singing day after day, week after week in difficult acoustic environments, and I strained my voice, necessitating a long, silent recovery time. Once I started recording, I learned a great deal about what goes on in the vocal instrument and sat down to completely restructure my approach to singing. The result is my teaching method: an ergonomic understanding of the instrument, with an emphasis on using the body's natural acoustics in conjunction with breathing techniques, relaxation and overall fitness. I'm also a mother and grandmother and have learned how best to draw out my students' strengths and interests. My students!!! We always become friends because a successful teacher takes the time to learn so much about every one.

  • NOVA Self Defense

    (13 reviews)

    Personal defense is 100% of what we do and we are continually evolving what and how we teach. What I enjoy most about teaching self-defense is seeing someone who was initially uneasy and self-conscious become a more confident, at-ease person. What we teach transcends just self-defense and physical training. We will give you fear management skills and confidence that can help you walk taller and feel better about yourself in every aspect of your life. Seeing the responses in people when what we say or teach really resonates with a person is what makes this job the most rewarding.

    Mr. Bastani is very sharp musically. He takes his time to make sure a student understands the material. I was very pleased with my 1st meeting with him. We went through a lot of information and I never felt as though I was being rushed in any manner. He is organized and flexible with his time. I look forward to having future lessons with him. Kolade
