Jewel Joins Christina Aguilera As Adviser To Her Team on NBC’S ‘THE VOICE’

Did you know that I love Jewel?  She was my inspiration when I was a teenager and the reason I became a singer/songwriter. I just admire her.  Check out the latest on Jewel.
UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. -- January 6, 2012-- NBC’s “The Voice” coaches have enlisted multi-platinum singer-songwriters Kelly Clarkson, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds,” Jewel, Miranda Lambert, Alanis Morissette, Ne-Yo, Lionel Richie and Robin Thicke to lend their knowledge and skills as advisers to six separate artists on Teams Adam (Levine), Blake (Shelton), Cee Lo (Green) and Christina (Aguilera), respectively, during the “battle rounds” phase of competition on the upcoming season.
“The Voice” premieres on a special night and time, Sunday, February 5, (10-11 p.m. ET; time approximate) following Super Bowl XLVI on NBC before settling into its regular time slot of Mondays (8-10 p.m. ET) beginning Monday, February 6. The adviser and team pairings are as follows:
Team Adam: Alanis Morissette (@morissette) and Robin Thicke (@robinthicke)
Team Blake: Kelly Clarkson (@Kelly_Clarkson) and Miranda Lambert (@Miranda_Lambert)
Team Cee Lo: Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds (@KennyEdmonds) and Ne-Yo (@NeYoCompound)
Team Christina: Jewel (@jeweljk) and Lionel Richie (@LionelRichie)
The announcement was made today by Paul Telegdy, President, Late Night and Alternative Programming, NBC.
“These renowned musicians will bring their unique and recognizable musical styles to the teams,” said Telegdy. “They are well-respected singers whose invaluable experience will be a tremendous asset to Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton’s artists.”
The battle rounds will pit two artists from each team against each other to sing a duet. At the end of each battle round performance, the artists’ respective coach will decide who among their team will move on to the live shows, and who will be eliminated from the competition.
Aguilera (@TheRealXtina), Green (@CeeLoGreen), Levine (@adamlevine) and Shelton (@blakeshelton) each recruited two music industry giants as advisers to help mentor and prepare six separate artists on their respective teams of 12 for the battle rounds. The artists will receive personal one-on-one training with their coach and adviser as they break down their song selection and stage performance. Each artist will also join their coach and adviser for an intimate conversation whereby they will have the opportunity to ask questions of the superstars before them.

Online Music Lessons

AnnieMarie Musselman for The New York Times

Leery of online music lessons? Many music teachers are now offering music lessons via Skype just like Charlie Pants Music where we offer online vocal lessons to students around the world. 

Vocal lessons are available for the beginner student all the way through to the advanced and professional student.  Some reasons singing students love taking singing lessons online.

Read this New York Times article on music lessons online.
excerpt from article by 

Skype and other videochat programs have transformed the simple phone call, but the technology is venturing into a new frontier: it is upending and democratizing the world of music lessons. 

Students who used to limit the pool of potential teachers to those within a 20-mile radius from their homes now take lessons from teachers — some with world-class credentials — on other coasts or continents. The list of benefits is long: Players of niche instruments now have more access to teachers. Parents can simply send their child down the hall for lessons rather than driving them. And teachers now have a new way to build their business. 

 “I’ve seen videos of individuals teaching students all over the world,” said Gary Ingle, chief executive of the Music Teachers National Association. “There will be people who would never take a music lesson unless it’s done online. As music teachers, we should be willing to meet students where they are.”
There is no data on the number of video music lessons, and many people certainly will prefer face-to-face lessons. But many music teachers said in interviews that they were conducting more lessons over broadband connections. 

another reason to take vocal lessons online

“People who do online lessons end up doing a more consistent lesson schedule,” he said. “They don’t have to fight snowstorms. They don’t have to take an hour a day to get to us. Other things don’t conflict, like baseball games.” And most lessons are recorded so students can play them back while practicing, Mr. Antonaccio said.
