I would like nothing better than to help you discover and develop your voice's greatest potential. Singing embodies many elements including proper tone production, rhythmic accuracy, proper diction and connecting to and sharing the emotional content of a song. It is a personal journey for singers to learn how to integrate all those elements into their own instruments and I will act as your trusted and supportive guide throughout the process. I have a master's degree in classical vocal performance from the renowned Manhattan School of Music and performed with opera companies in New York City. Currently, in New Orleans, I sing with the joyous Shades of Praise interracial gospel choir. I have had the privilege of studying with some of the finest voice teachers, conductors and coaches that America has to offer and I would love to share that combined knowledge with others. I have also had the agonizing and humbling experience of losing and rebuilding my voice after medical difficulties, ...

My Experience with Ms. Shelia has been nothing short of amazing! She has really helped me become more comfortable with my voice. Ms. Shelia will push you to be open and vulnerable while allowing you to discover the many different colors and dynamics of your voice. She also has helped teach me what proper techniques to use while singing. I have personally developed a greater range and my levels of confidence have grown tremendously sense taking lessons with her.
Emilie
I've learned so much in a short period of time with Sheila. She is very easy to get a long with and not intimidating despite her distinguished resume. She has helped me immensely with the awareness of my voice and allowed me to explore my instrument in ways I hadn't try before. Sheila is patient and will continue to approach and explain a technique from different angles (with humour!) until it is grasped. Thanks to her I feel more confident and aware when I'm singing. So thank you very very much!

I've played all my life and have my own band. I started teaching guitar in 2008. I've worked with hundreds of students taking beginners to advanced level of playing. I offer lessons from 2 studios located in Tulsa and Broken Arrow. I teach from a variety of books and programs to help students become well rounded musicians. As for equipment, I use Marshall, Fender, and Line 6 amps, Ibanez and Gibson guitars, Guitar Pro for creating lessons, Garage Band for recording, and have a large collection of guitar effects pedals.
On average within 2 - 3 months a beginning student will be reading, counting, and playing songs.
My goal is to keep my students interested and happy while making sure they develop the proper musical foundation/knowledge that will allow them grow, overcome their musical walls, and become the musician they desire to be.
My philosophy is to teach students to be smart musicians. It does you no good if you can play a song but don't know what you are actually doing. So,

Music is my passion. I've been playing music since I was a child but didn't get serious with it until I was 14, that's when I got my first electric guitar. So, from then on I've been playing and studying music for over 16 years. I play and teach guitar, piano, drums, and bass guitar. Aside from taki

I enjoyed learning from Christian today. I am 70 years old and did not feel out of place. He made me comfortable and he is very knowledgeable about how to go about teaching. He was very polite and patient with me and was able to go over things and explain professionally in a manner that did not insult my intelligence. He seems dedicated to teaching and does it very well .
I highly recommend this man to anyone that wants to learn how to play the Piano.
Wade J.
Christian has been top-notch in every way I could hope for. His communication prior to and after the lesson has been stellar, taking time to prep me then follow up with thorough, well written tips and details. (It's clear that he values the student's time as much as his own, and seeks to make the experience individualized and worthwhile for those he teaches.) The lesson itself was spot-on, being well balanced in both fun and degree of challenge. Feel very fortunate to have found him!
Cayden
Christian easily connects with my teenage son. He is professional while at the same time relaxed and easy-going. He stresses the importance of learning the basics but there is no high pressure. He strives to teach music that is interesting to my son and that challenges him. He does a great job of explaining things. We are happy we chose Christian as our teacher.

My son has been singing with Dan for almost a year now. Dan has been incredibly patient and caring. He's an excellent singing instructor.

Dan has a great style of instruction, he is very friendly and easy going and this makes taking the lessons very comfortable. Dan has great patience as I was too busy to do much preparation for the lessons but Dan made it work and I still progressed with the Danish language. I will be back as soon as things slow down for me.

Whether you're a beginner or an advanced violinist preparing for an audition, whether your lesson takes place online or in my Nashville studio, I seek to help meet the goals of each student on their journey learning the violin. With 24 years experience as a member of a professional symphony orchestra, I know firsthand how important it is to learn how to play in a way that feels comfortable, without muscle tension. Developing good habits while having fun learning the essentials describes a typical lesson. If you have a favorite song you'd like to learn, feel free to bring it to the lesson!

About Kirsten

I'm a professional violinist in Nashville, TN. I graduated from DePaul university in Chicago with a Bachelor's Degree in Violin Performance. I was also a member of the Civic Orchestra of Chicago, where I received training from the world's top conductors to become a professional orchestral musician.

Tami
Me and my daughter had a great experience with Kirsten! She is very warm, flexible, and has a friendly, professional teaching style. An overall lovely person who is very talented at her craft. Would definitely recommend!
Lou
Kirsten Mitchell and I first met in a classroom at Austin Peay University where she was teaching a beginners violin class with individual instruction. Nearly all of her students turned out to be teenagers. Retired, I had already turned 65.
Over time, and with patient, coaching, and encouragement from Kirsten, I have learned to play several
Bach pieces, among others. Each new work requires that yet another skill or technique be learned. We have made our way from great simplicity to greater complexity, each step requiring more control and capacity.
How did we do that? Examples! When my attempts at discovery came short, Kirsten could always provide examples so matter-of-fact that they seldom intimidated. Just try it; just do it! It’s like learning from a big sister or parent who only desires your success and would do what it takes to accomplish that.
There have been times when my vote would have been for her to leave violin study to someone who had a brighter future. But, Kirsten seemed to sense that, and found understanding words and suggestions that turned my outlook towards optimism, and had me reaching deeper into myself to get through that dry spell.
Play squeaky? “Listen to this, and play along with me; listen to my tone and see if you can match it. Your F’s are a little high; need to be flatter. Move your finger a little on the string. Let’s play it together. See the spacing between second and third fingers here? Hold your bow this way and keep your fingers flexible. Watch how my hand works, then you try it. “ And it goes on, and on. Kirsten never seems to tire of coaching and mentoring.
What a contrast. An old guy with modest capabilities being taught by a thorough professional that makes her living with the NSO. A professional musician who can shrink the gulf between what she can do so well and what I struggle to learn, but always a friendly adult who can teach as though it is all that really mattered.
We revere and recognize those who enrich our lives, especially our teachers. They help us reach our goals. Kirsten Mitchell is one of the most memorable people I’ve met.
