Angie Quidley||Offering private lessons in|
My name is Angie Quidley. I live in Ocala Florida and I teach private voice and piano lessons.
I can also do one-on-one acting lessons for coaching and prep for musical and acting auditions.
My Teaching Background
I have a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance with a Minor in Musical Theatre. I have been teaching private voice and piano lessons for over 15 years and use all styles of music (Pop, Broadway, Jazz, Classical, Christian, Choral, etc...). I have run my own theatre company and directed shows such as Fiddler on the Roof, The Music Man, Bye Bye Birdie, Les Miserables School Edition, The Kind and I, The Wizard of Oz, Annie, Beauty and The Beast, Grease School Version, etc. I have been hired by various venues and theatres to direct children and teens in these musicals but also enjoy teaching adults. I have also performed in the following musicals at various theatres: (Oklahoma, The Music Man, Grease, CATS).
I grew up singing in Pop/Rock/Jazz bands in high school and college while also doing musical theatre.
My Teaching Philosophy
I have taught classroom music, chorus and musical theory, drama and private lessons. I like to customize the curriculum I use to match the learning style of the student. For piano I use various piano books and teach ages 5 to adult beginning to intermediate levels for piano. This includes using a music theory book. For voice I teach ages 7 to adult beginning to advanced. In voice I develop pitch, teach sight reading skills, singing techniques (posture, breathing, diction, placement, tone enhancement, range imrprovement, stage presence, etc.). I ask for 3 month commitment from my students to see if they show development potential and commitment to practice. I do not feel that less than 3 months allows students to see any development and I do not like to waste their money or my time if they show no commitment to practice or consistent attendance at lessons. Statistics show that study in music improves academics such as math and science, but I also know it improves articulation and speech, confidence, self-esteem, motivation, focus and commitment, which also helps in study habits and social interaction development.
