Trained both musically and in theatrical forms, James Halloran offers piano and vocal lessons with an edge. Holding a bachelors degree in jazz singing, James understands that as a musician, it is just as important to captivate an audience with a performance as it is to have great technique.
Piano tutoring: Beginner to intermediate level students. I have experience with AMEB exam preparation (up to grade 8) or school exam preparation (up to year 11). For students simply aiming to enjoy playing piano and reading music, I have developed engaging programs that fast-track your progress.
The aim of my lessons is to provide students with the techniques required to develop excellent habits, which can always lead to excellent results if practised. For the first few weeks, students will be guided through a healthy vocal warm up to start each lesson, but ideally, in due course they will be able to warm up on their own before the lesson in order to maximise the time we have.
I attempt to have a fun approach to my lessons. A typical lessons with me will include of a 5-10 minute warm up, specificity chosen and adapted for the student. The rest of the lesson will then comprise of working on technique and songs. I try to work my lessons around the student making sure their enjoyment and goals are being reached by the end of each session.
I believe that empathy is the key to a good learning enviroment, and being flexible towards the student's needs is what makes our time together an accomplishment. Body, mind, art, and emotions are all part of the music journey, and taking care of all these aspects is what will make you understand and go deep into music.
the piano is a very interesting instrument, and i enjoy teaching those with the passion to learn. I focus on both practical and theory aspects of musical knowledge. I focus on note reading right from the beginning. even though I follow a certain system, I'm always able to adjust my teaching methods according to what suits the student the best.
I base my lessons around specific students and their current abilities. Whilst being very proactive, I try and make the lessons as fun and enjoyable as possible and express my enthusiasm for music. I will get the student to practice as much as possible and will help him/her achieve their goals.
My teaching methods vary from student to student. I understand the importance of listening skills and empathy when teaching and interacting with the students. I strive to be a clear communicator. I strive to make the learning process to be engaging & fun with activities and getting the student to participate in the lesson, instead of being a passive observer.
My teaching method is primarily active learning. By listening and correcting bad vocal habits the student would improve by trial and error and realising what works best for their individual voice.
You pick which songs you want to learn I will create a teaching style suitable to you This will include, exercises, scales, riffs/licks to improve technique and improve your musical ear We will learn FULL songs and create a repertoire of musical pieces to perform and learn to create your own music.
A strong technical foundation is key to developing a versatile voice. Enjoyment is key to learning. We sing with our ears. Run your own race. You gotta learn the rules to break them.
I have completed a Bachelor of Music degree, majoring in contemporary vocals, and have 10 years teaching experience with a variety of ages. Tailoring my approach to suit each individual, I use various combined teaching methods, while still focusing on the importance of technique.
This program caters to new, upcoming or already existing artists/creatives who are wanting to pursue their passion in music, learn different skills and industry knowledge, and be around other like-minded people. In this mentorship program you'll be provided with access to a professional recording studio and exposure to a plethora of people and resources.
My teaching method is of coure adjusted case by case. Tho the tenets of listening, copying, adjusting , practica are all important. I will work from the famous book named progressive steps to sincopation for the modern drummer. Which is a great foundation for reading and getting to know the drum set.
I look for sheet music of songs that the students would like to learn, and teach them to read the sheet music and play the songs on the piano. Students will learn and practice the songs until they can play the whole song beautifully.
My number 1 rule in teaching any form of music is that you must learn to read sheet music.
I teach everyone very politely from basics...
I am a strong believer of every individual's unique style when it comes to Artistic performance so when I teach I am protective of my students uniqueness. With that in mind, I prefer to start from teaching basic breathing techniques and vocal drills.
I like to base my classes on the way I learned piano when I was younger. No exams, nothing that puts too much pressure on your child as this can take the love of music away from a person.
I like my students to be comfortable but they know I like to get their best work out of them with an easy going approach. Hard work pays off, but not in an old-school sense. I like students to focus on their interest areas but with honest guidance.
I can do introductory lessons for multiple instruments, as well as advanced level music theory and composition lessons, aiming to transfer my personal understanding of music, as well as those commonly accepted, to young students in a patient and focused manner, encouraging independent development of one's own talents and skills.
I teach through various methods, depending on what the student wants to learn.
I always teach every student on an individual basis. Even within group lessons. I try to find the areas that most enthuse you as a student and focus on that direction whilst offering guidance towards other areas that may not be as familiar or as comfortable.
I am an open minded male with a conscientious nature. I have taught a range of students: young or old, different ethnicity, male or female, beginners to advanced. I can offer solo, duo or group session (maximum 5). The length of the lesson is dependent on the individual but either 30 minutes or an hour.
I currently have a Grade 6 AMEB certificate for singing- and wish to pass on my knowledge to aspiring singers. I enjoy teaching others, and am providing affordable lessons.
I like to keep things quite relaxed and quite fun in the classroom. There will be lots of warm ups and games that everyone will enjoy. My lesson structure generally consists of 50% theory and 50% practical exercises. They all contribute to the student's skills and understanding of different aspects of music.
I like to teach students the way they want to be taught. If that means spending half the class on theory and then working from a book, we can do that. If they are looking for a more laid back approach, we can base our lessons of the songs that the students want to learn. I believe the only way to achieve something is to make it fun and enjoyable.
I teach mainly using my knowledge of the Estill technique. It’s based on the knowledge that our vocal muscles are just that - muscles that we can strengthen and gain control over, just like any other, to be able to produce the sounds we want.
My aim is to guide the student to find his or her true voice which starts with the spoken word culminating in natural, beautifully produced effortless singing. The student will learn to let go of tensions and inhibitions to give way to the most immediate path to emotion evoking singing.
