Elise and Scott …

We are career musicians and teachers. We are active performers in the maritime music community and we warmly welcome all levels and ages to our soulful little music studio for lessons and coaching.
Here’s a little bit more about each of us…

 
Elise Besler - Voice Teacher and Performance Coach, Halifax NS

Elise Besler - Voice Teacher and Performance Coach, Halifax NS


Hey! I’m Elise…

I LOVE to sing ~ I’ve always loved to sing. Even though I started out as a shy kid who hid behind her mom’s legs, I have worked with some amazing teachers at College and beyond, who helped me discover my own authentic vocal power and discover a passion for teaching voice and create a career that I have fallen in love with.

I’ve studied Vocal Performance, Composition and Songwriting and arranging at the college level and have been teaching voice, performance and coaching artists and speakers for over 2 decades. Most recently, I have been certified in Somatic Voicework The Lovetri Method (tm) ~ which has been a game changer in the studio! We focus on healthy vocal function to create your most free and authentic voice, no matter the genre you sing.

In addition to my work as a voice teacher, I am also an active performing singer songwriter and have an active performing career. I have been lucky to perform on the stages of concert halls, clubs and festivals all over Canada and have been blessed with 4 Music Nova Scotia Awards nominations, as a Music Educator and Artist - as well as two ECMA nominations for my last two albums “Lean In” and “Truth”

I specialize in the teaching of Contemporary Commercial Music ~ yup! Pop, Rock, Jazz, Blues and Musical Theatre singers - you’ve come to the right place!

For nearly 20 years, I’ve been teaching and working with people JUST LIKE YOU, who also love to sing.

Let’s create the voice you’ve always dreamed of!

Scott Harnish - Guitar, Bass and Music Theory Teacher, Halifax NS


Hey! I’m Scott…

I LOVE to play guitar! A LOT!

I have been a member of the Halifax music scene for the past 30 years ~ throughout that time I have been honing my skills as a busy working musician on both guitar and bass. I specialize in rock. pop and all other contemporary styles of guitar.

In addition to being Elise's lead guitar player and the producer of ECMA and Music Nova Scotia nominated albums, I can currently be seen on a regular basis with my bands "The Morning After", "Frankie Deuce" and as a duo member with fellow guitarist and singer/songwriter Tyler Key. I have to tell you though, one of the most fun gigs I have is as Gene Simmons' character "The Demon" in Nova Scotia's premier tribute to KISS, "Dressed 2 Kill"

During your guitar lessons we will learn about popular stylings of guitar. I also include my deep knowledge of music theory in all lessons and I welcome students aged 10 and up to my studio!
