Voice training has been the hallmark of Musically Speaking Studios for over twenty years. Musically Speaking Studios has trained literally hundreds of singers, many of which are professionals in the music business. Each student is treated as an individual with his or her own specific strengths and weaknesses, as no two singers can fall into the same regimen of instruction. Practice CD's are made for each student during the lessons. Periodically, the student is recorded (in our professional recording studio) while they sing (and get coached on) any song of their choice, which is then professionally mixed and burned to CD. When a student is ready to take their music to the next level we offer a complete Artist Development Program.

Guitar training is given a different approach at Musically Speaking Studios. First, we don't teach students from a workbook or regimented lesson plan, as we believe every student is different from the next and deserves specialized training. Second, we don't start students off with months of boring sight-reading drills and music theory. We start the students with what they came here for...to learn how to play the instrument! Then after the student develops the knowledge and correct motor skills to play their instrument, sight-reading and music theory are introduced to take them to the next level of performance. As with all instruments, we stress songwriting to open up the student's creative side and help them to not only become players of their favorite music, but to create their own as well. Whether your interest is in acoustic, electric or bass guitar and you want to learn any style of music from jazz to heavy metal, our instructors can show you the way.

The piano instructors at Musically Speaking Studios are experienced in performing many different genres, including classical, jazz, rock, pop and many others. This background enables the student to be guided in any musical direction that they desire. Through a process of building technique, studying music theory, and learning how to apply these concepts, the student develops a strong foundation in the art form, which helps them realize their musical aspirations. The one-on-one instruction is based around what the student wants out of the instrument, and the instructor works with the student to plan the best path to take in order to achieve their goals. Our instructors' goal is to bring music into the life of the student in a way that is meaningful to them.
