I was hesitant to engage a singing teacher because I am a senior citizen and wasn't sure I was teachable as I can't even read music. What a joy my introductory lesson was and an even more incredible and enjoyable experience was my first lesson. Theresa was patient beyond description as she asked questions, and taught at my level of understanding in an easy and fun way. I left my lesson with internet generated info and explanations of material we had discussed. As I left her comfortable home studio, I thought what a different world it would be if all teachers followed her model of teaching. Brava! Theresa.

Thank you for the glowing review Keith! I appreciate it so much.
Theresa really makes lessons fun and completely tailored to what your want to work on! We’ve worked on a variety of things - from breathing techniques to vocal run and projecting exercises. She’s very friendly and full of energy which makes the time fly and you will get comfortable quickly. You can work on your choice of genre with her, she’s very knowledgeable about all kinds and she even helped me rap in another language!Dec 2, 2019Verified
I’ve just wrapped up my second lesson with Theresa and wish there was a 6-star rating I could give her! She is incredibly warm, positive, and of course, knowledgeable. She has a natural gift for teaching, and it’s clear that she finds true joy in what she does. I have felt supported, affirmed and inspired in my lessons with her and cannot wait to continue learning from her.Mar 26, 2019VerifiedTheresa Layne's reply
Thank you Lauren. You are a delight to work with and have an incredible voice. I am so honored to support you and teach you how to get the most out of your voice!
Theresa was very kind and enthusiastic. My somewhat shy daughters really enjoyed working with her. She was very responsive by email and easy to work with. Highly recommend.Nov 18, 2019Verified
