Learn how to harmonize, sight-sing and play various instruments
Students go through an “audition boot camp” which develops technical skills and expressive skills needed to kick butt at an audition! Please allow for at least five lessons prior to scheduled audition. Students of mine have gotten leads in school musicals and community theater programs, audition only choirs and even scored college entry into temple music programs and Curtis in Philadelphia. This is an intensive course! Please bring notebook and printed lyrics to first lesson, be warmed up and ready to work’
About Rosalind H.

Hello! My name is Rosalind and I believing in teaching music lessons that go the extra mile. Students and parents can expect excellence in customer service that goes beyond their weekly lessons. How are lessons with me different? -Convenient Locations in Downingtown, Coatesville, West Chester as well as online lessons! -Lessons are recorded and sent to parents and students within 24 hours so that assignments are always clear and that you have a clear idea of progress -Access to my student newsletter which includes tips for how to improve as a performer and news about student's upcoming performances -I help students find and prepare for performance opportunities and I attend student performances -I select one student a month to participate in our student showcase, featuring them in my newsletter -I host twice a year recitals where students can show off their new skills -I bring all materials to lessons for your convenience (excluding piano) -singers receive recorded warm ups to practice with at home -I am skilled at helping students with ear training if they need it for voice, most of my students can match pitch after a month of singing lessons no matter the trouble they have had before -every student gets a "new student kit" at their first lesson including a list of performance opportunities and a vocal health guide for singers -weekly instructional videos for voice sent -weekly links to articles about music and the brain -I respond to student concerns and questions within 24 hours I welcome students of all ages and work hard to make music accessible for everyone. -Young kids in voice can expect their lessons to be fun and educational including using visual tools like scarves and shakers, and imaginative play to learn vocal techniques needed to sing on pitch and with proper breathe control. -Children in piano lessons will learn music theory and piano technique through simple songwriting exercises, theory games, visual tools and more. They will learn about composer's lives and musical styles, providing them with a well-rounded lesson experience. -Older children and adult singers can expect to learn about their vocal anatomy in order to better control of their voice and become independent during practice sessions at home. They will learn how to improve breathe control, posture and diction. Time during lessons will also be dedicated to developing stage presence and discussing vocal health. Singers will be allowed to select repertoire from the genre of their choice. They can also learn how to harmonize and sight-sing in lessons if they would like. -I teach beginning guitar students and help them learn how to play with proper technique and accompany themselves when singing. These students learn to read staff and tab and shape different chords on the guitar. I use theory games and visual tools for kids to make lessons fun -Music theory/composition students will be taught how to read and write music. Students will be invited to improvise on the piano and record their improvisations.They will be taught how to sight-sing in order to learn how to notate any melodies in their head They will learn how music has changed and been influenced throughout history. They will learn how to read lead sheets and use stylistic invariants in their playing. They will be provided with honest feedback and constructive help on their compositions.They will learn how the human brain processes music and how best to capitalize upon this process for the greatest audience appeal. -I have experience teaching students with special needs and adjusting lessons to help them meet their goals. About me! I am a Westminster Choir College '11 Alum  who graduated with a Bachelor's of Arts in Music, summa cum laude. I also have my master's degree in music therapy from Drexel University. I am also a Member of the National Association of Teachers of Singing and a  Board Certified Music Therapist. During my time at school I performed at Carnegie Hall and the Kimmel Center, and did music therapy work with older adults, as well as disadvantaged children and parents. I also have my own parent/child music class I host every Thursday September-May. It's never to early to start a music education! I have been teaching for over four years and now have a studio of more than 70 happy students. Teaching music is my passion, and I love seeing students grow! I often draw upon my experience from my master's degree in music therapy, which taught me that music can have a profound effect on the human brain and upon cognitive development.  My skills as a music therapist allow me to better understand a student's cognitive strengths and areas for improvement, and to develop individualized teaching strategies which utilize student strengths. *** Studio Equipment *** My studios are equipped with keyboard, guitar or piano, as well as a sizable repertoire of classical, broadway and popular music. ' I also have a mirror for voice students to see how their body is moving when singing and visual tools for students like scarves, whiteboard, markers, crayons...ect. I am more than happy to help students find any music they may need for lessons that is not already in my library. I recommend the following books for piano students (listed by age): Ages 4-6: My First Piano Adventure, Lesson Book A with by Nancy & Randall Faber Ages 6-12:Piano Adventures - Level 1: Lesson Book [Book]Faber Piano Adventures Ages 12 and up: Adult All-In-One Course: Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course, Level ...by Willard A. Palmer Voice: Alfred's Teach Yourself to Sing *** Specialties *** I specialize in ear training, sight-singing and knowing and understanding vocal anatomy. Many of my students are students who have gone on to score lead roles in their schools or community theater performances, as well as lead singers of local bands looking to improve their techniques and improve their vocal health. I specialize in theory and sight-reading for piano and theory students. I also specialize in teaching those with special needs.

Rosalind quickly pinpointed problem areas and gave excellent instruction on how to work to improve by giving great explanations of what was happening with the voice and why. Highly recommend.

I lead a parent/child music class every Thursday from September-May. During this 45 minute class we use movement, instruments and props to teach toddlers about shapes, colors, and more! This experience is intended to encourage the bond between parent and child and benefit a child's social skills and self regulation as well as help them learn to love music!
