Deborah is a truly special instructor. I came open to learn voice and piano, and I'm getting both and more. She really honed in on the work that I need: that in my head and heart. Through music, I'm learning how to dismantle the pride and fear that clouds (or prevents) my music-making. I feel so much more it touch with my inner musician, and free to let her fly. Deborah is easygoing and thoughtful, practical and resourceful. I highly recommend her.
Dave was very responsive when I was trying to set up lessons for my granddaughter. She is loving taking lessons from him! He is very encouraging and tailors the lessons to the music she likes.
Stella has been a wonderful teacher! I've never taken any sort of music lessons and was worried about starting lessons as an adult. I came across Stella after looking through many websites and am glad I did. Stella is extremely patient and encouraging throughout the sessions. I can't tell you how many times I mess up in an hour and she always tends to find something good to say about what I've done. I really enjoy taking lessons with her and would recommend her to anyone needing a supportive and knowledgeable teacher.
My daughter loves her lessons with Shari. Shari keeps it fun and relaxed while managing to teach a great deal of information and techniques in each lesson.
Been singing for many years and surprised to still be learning so much. Juan is quite professional and disciplined. He identifies where you need work and starts with fundamentals. You can't fake it with him; he'll know! I recommend going into it with a clear goal and he'll design a program for you.
Miles is a wonderful, supportive teacher. I am an adult in my senior years who decided to learn piano. Although I took piano lessons when I was 8-10 years old, it is a challenge for me to learn now with an adult brain but he is so patient and he adapts his lessons to how I learn. He always encourgaes me and I am learning very well which I wasn't sure I was capable of but now with Miles' excellent teaching and enthousiasm, I confident that I will soon be able to play the way I imagined I could.
I have been studying classical piano with Talyn Imhoff over the past 10 months. She has helped me immensely with sight reading, technique, and articulation. She makes the lessons fun and lets me choose the pieces I want to work on. She is patient, kind, and a very accomplished pianist. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to take their playing to the next level!
Liz is an amazing music teacher and person. I started taking lessons with her when I started flute in the 5th grade and kept taking lessons wih her through the end of high school. The only reason I stopped was because I moved away to college. Liz is a true musician. She knows music and she knows how to teach. I was always impressed wih Liz's ability to make very complex music reachable. What I love so much about Liz is that she makes music personal. She asked what I was interested in and made sure that I got to learn the type of flute because that is what I was interested in. This is in contrast to some other music teachers I had when I played other instruments earlier in my life. I remember sometimes I would be tired from school or sports practice earlier, or maybe I had had a rough day, and would not want to go to my lesson. Of course I would go and not once did I regret it. I ALWAYS left lessons happy. Liz made music and lessons fun. She is truly invested in her students. She builds relationships with them. I graduated from college and a teacher myself now and I still talk to Liz to catch up because we are more than just student-teacher we are friends. I still think of Liz when I hear Christmas music or Flight of the Bumblebee.
I struggled with piano as a child. It made me feel like I would never be capable of learning music. Through a mutual friend, I was introduced to Forrest, and he proved me wrong. I'm proud to say that I can play open chords with ease! I'm excited for more lessons!
Jimmy is an excellent piano teacher! He is so patient with my 8 year old son! I highly recommend him if you are interested in piano lessons!
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.
I have been taking voice lessons with Marla Volovna for 7 months now. In this short time I have progressed faster than I ever had before, in vocal technique as well as in interpretation and musicianship. Marla is very demanding, very honest and very encouraging a killer combo for success. And Marlas commitment to her students progress really extends beyond the weekly lesson, with regular communication of tips to improve technique, interpretation, links to performances, documentaries, archives, etc I highly recommend Volovna Vocal Studio.
beginning music lessons
Just had my first guitar lesson with Ryan and it went great! Thought he had a great balance between teaching me the technicalities while also incorporating the stylistic types of music we discussed that I wanted to learn. I am a beginner student and felt very comfortable with Ryan, he has a great personality and made my lesson both educational and fun! Looking forward to continue working with and learning from him. - Jess
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!
