A few words about us

Emily James started singing at a young age. Her parents say that they knew when she had finally fallen asleep because the singing stopped. She met Teri in 2011 while taking a harmonies class through CYT. She started voice lessons soon after. She studied voice at North Idaho College and Eastern Washington University before moving back to Coeur d’ Alene. She is currently teaching music and other subjects at North Idaho Christian School. She is extremely excited to start this new adventure and looks forward to getting to know the parents and students.

B sharp Music Studio is not just a place to learn how to sing correctly!  We understand that music is a way of self-expression for many people.  That's why we offer lessons in voice and piano.

Many of our students want help with understanding how to sing different genres of music such as classical, musical theatre, pop, and jazz.  We offer coaching for audition preparation as well as solo adjudication performances.

We also understand that many musicians want the confidence to perform on stage.  The best way to be comfortable on stage is...to perform on stage!The studio produces two recitals a year; Spring and Fall. Our students have the opportunity to perform throughout the year and various events such as the North Idaho Fair in summer,  Festival of Trees at Christmas.  They also perform regularly at local coffee houses and charity events and have participated in recording projects.

Our biggest strength is tailoring each lesson to the musician as an individual. Some examples are:

Singers:   Help with staying on pitch throughout a song

                  Extending vocal range

                  Breath control

                  Performance/audition preparation

Pianists:  Learn to read music

                  Improv techniques

                 Accompanying themselves or others    

Musicianship: Learning to read music

                          Understanding music yheory

Our philosophy is simple......learn the basics correctly so that YOU can make the kind of music that YOU want!
