Alaina Ferris Music, based on Brooklyn NY, offers private lessons (ages 4 through adult) in voice, piano, music theory, ear training, and composition. Lessons are fun and tailored to your personal goals – whether you are looking to get better at jazz theory, singing show tunes, learning how to play for the first time, or looking to prepare for your auditions.
My goal as a teacher is to guide students in finding and developing their passion for music. This is done by addressing what interests and inspires each student, while introducing new materials and methods – including music theory, aural skills, and technique. I tailor lessons for each individual to best fit their needs and desires.
