My 11 year old daughter has been taking violin lessons with Mindy for about 3 months. She is enjoying her lessons and she is making excellent progress. Recently she played violin onstage with Mindy at a recital. I was very proud of her.
Sarah is amazing! I had only had about 4 lessons with Sarah when my friends wanted to go out for karaoke. None of my friends knew I was taking singing lessons and they were surprised. I got so many compliments! I was so happy that even just after a few lessons, I could already take away tools that Sarah taught me and put them into action! I was very lucky to find her. I had searched for awhile for a vocal coach and they were either too expensive, really far or in group setting (which I was too nervous to do being a beginner). I very much enjoy my one-on-one lessons with her. She's so sweet and makes you feel so welcomed and keeps you in good spirits about training your voice! I will definitely be continuing my lessons with her! Thank you Sarah!! :)
I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.
Donna is a great teacher for voice lessons. Our first time meeting I sung to her and I was very nervous but she listened to me and let me know exactly what I needed to work on which was my breathing and the techniques that she showed works very well..she is very kind women and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a voice teacher..
My family has started lessons with Juan Carlos, and we're happy we found him. He's a patient teacher who structures lessons based on each student's progression and skill set. He also teaches the "right" way, i.e. fundamentals, thereby setting up students for success. It also helps that he's a nice guy and is extremely responsive with scheduling etc.
Wow, Ann has been great! I've never taken any voice lessons before, and in fact, I'm a terrible singer! The reason why I wanted to take lessons was because I've always wanted to be able to sing at least one song decently. So, I was nervous going to my first lesson with a professional voice coach. She was very friendly, and put me at ease immediately. She casually taught me about the basics, and asked me a lot of questions to get to know me. Once she realized I had no prior experience, she got right to work! She made the lessons fun, but also full of new things to learn. I've only had a couple of lessons so far, but I'm already noticing a big difference!!! And I'm an absolute beginner! Sometimes she sings for me to show me techniques, and she blows me away with her singing! I can imagine that even professional singers would get a lot out of taking lessons from her! She notices even the tiniest of details about your voice and makes note and suggests ways to improve! I definitely recommend!
I can't say enough about my experience with Ken. He is very intuitive. His lessons are balence between exercises and therory. I have alway found myself mentally stimulated, with plenty of work for my fingers. He is very energetic and reaches out between lessons to give you more music to play with. His warm and friendly personality make the lessons fly by. He also willing to work through tought topics without cutting the lesson short (schedule permitting ). I really appreciate his effort into his students. He has also been pretty flexible with my shedule. As an adult these are not the piano lessons I hated as a child. Lol
I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.
Elizabeth mixes a friendly attitude with serious musical instruction. My daughter enjoys her lessons very much and is growing under Elizabeth's care. Wonderful teacher!
Both of our kids ( 12 and 10 ) are having a nice time with Lynn while learning their drills. She connects with them individually and helps them learn their drills in a smooth way. Our daughter loves her voice and piano lessons. On the other hand, our son did not want to take piano lessons at all but after a few lessons with Lynn, he decided to stay with it! How great is that! Thank you so much Lynn!!! :-) I am happy and looking forward to seeing more of their progress!
Ben's a great, knowledgable and fun vocal coach that really caters to your needs, and then broadens your potential to things you never thought you could do. As a 21 year old male trying to be a pop/rock singer, in just a few short lessons he helped my range, breath support and overall tone improve drastically. Highly recommended if you're looking for good results quickly in improving your singing voice.
Emily is wonderful. She helped me so much in just two lessons as I was preparing for a performance. Not only does she have great technical knowledge - she also has a warm, supportive, and therapeutic presence, which helps with gaining confidence and reducing nerves. :) I'd recommend her to anyone!
I enjoyed how Alison interacted with my children in teaching the guitar and piano.not only was she professional, knowledgable, but she made the lessons enjoyable. My children look forward to their lessons & I would reccomend her wholeheartedly
Chris is a really good musician and teacher. Some musicians are so good they forget what it's like to 'not know'. Chris can be with you, where you're at even though he is a highly skilled player. His patience is very encouraging. It's inspiring to take lessons with him and to remember we all NEED music!
Ross was very helpful. He was very encouraging and that is necessary for someone like me who hasn't had lessons in years. Ross pointed out what I was doing right and we worked on that, then we moved on to things I needed to improve. I feel like in our one hour lesson I learned more than I have before. I can't wait for our next session :). I would highly recommend for any singer, no matter what level, to have a lesson with Ross.
Lessons from Michael are great. He is great about tweaking sessions to your personal needs to specifically target and prioritize what someone may be struggling with most at that time. He is very encouraging and his experience really shows in the lessons.
Wendy brings a wealth of knowledge about music and singing, combines it with enthusiasm, genuine caring, and experience, and channels it all into her teaching. Lessons are always fun, engaging, educational, and tailored to the student's unique voice and abilities. I'd recommend Wendy to any aspiring singer of any age without reservation. - Horst, San Rafael, CA
What a gift to have Kayla teaching our child piano! She's incredibly talented both musically and as a teacher. She brings joy and excitement to each lesson and moves our child along at just the right pace. Kayla has brilliantly empowered and motivated our child to practice, play, and even do a little composing of his own! Thanks to Kayla, our child's piano playing and understanding and joy of music have excelled far beyond our expectations.
I offer professional music instruction for guitar, bass, piano, vocals, banjo and ukelele in a private lesson format. We also offer periodic workshops for specific music styles, as well as an introductory class on the guitar for children under 10.
We offer a well-rounded & fun approach. Areas of study: technical study (proven exercises that work), ear training (learn to play by ear), repertoire development (songs), improvisation , live performance, recording techniques, style development. Our students have excelled greatly throughout our 25 years of teaching. Many have continued playing and become professional musicians. Many have been inspired to pursue higher education (ie: college degree).
Personal, engaging, adaptive approach tailored to each student
