WOWWW for real. . . Brian and the Red Pelican Team are incredibly welcoming and the set-up is very intimate. I took lessons with Syreeta who I couldn't recommend any more highly. She was down-to-earth, understanding of my quirks and shyness at first, and really helped me to open my range!!

Syreeta was perfect at alleviating my fears as a beginner, understanding how to learn the basics and push myself increasingly every week . . . I will never forget the moment I was suddenly able to play piano and sing at the same time, it truly felt surreal, and I was shocked to be able to do so. . . I can't recommend enough Red Pelican and Syreeta (if you want to learn piano/singing). It really allowed me to discover a part of myself I only dreamed of previously.

This is the type of business that makes you forget that you're dealing with a business. From the initial selection of instructors, to the lesson follow-up. Everything was personalized and professional. I was matched up with Syreeta for voice lessons, who was perfect for me and my singing style. I'm extremely happy with how much I've learned in such a short amount of time.

Syreeta truly enjoys helping people discover who they are as vocalists, performers, artists and storytellers. In Syreeta’s words, “even the most inexperienced singer has a certain something that makes their voice special.”
Syreeta combines this encouraging approach, with a wealth of knowledge from years of touring the world as a professional singer. Syreeta received her specialist certification in vocal styles (jazz, r&b and pop/rock) from Berklee College of Music, and enjoys preparing students for auditions and performances. She uses a variety of vocal techniques and teaching methods to tailor lessons to the unique needs of each student.
While she is a voice specialist, Syreeta also enjoys working with vocalists interested in learning guitar and piano as a compliment to their skills.
Syreeta’s songs have been featured in many tv shows, and most recently, the 2013 film, “Home Again.”
Some of Syreeta’s favorite musicians include, Prince, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Bonnie Raitt, Dolly Parton, Esperanza Spalding, Pink and Sia.
Fun fact: Syreeta is a HUGE Jeopardy fan and has a lifelong dream of one day appearing on the legendary game show.
