Quick response.. Exactly what I was looking for in guitar lessons. Everyone was very helpful. Thank you.
Kitty has changed my vocals for the better 100% in just three lessons. As a professional musician and teacher, Kitty has all of the right tools for me. Kitty is passionate about what she is doing and cares about me achieving my goals as a singer. I am so pleased with her teaching methods and getting the right results. Awesome!
John has been a perfect teacher for me because of his profound understanding of music theory and composition. John has a degree in music from Berklee and those concepts are brought to life in our lessons. My musical understanding and ability has skyrocketed since our lessons began. Prior to us starting, jamming with other musicians was incredibly intimidating. Now I have standing weekly jam sessions with multiple groups and am able to old my own and improvise well at each. I have become the teacher for many of my friends who I previously thought were years ahead of me in musical talent. If you have the hunger to learn guitar, John is your guy.
Sarah's voice lessons are professional, fun, and encouraging. My daughter loves working with her and has very quickly learned how to better articulate while singing and is learning how to properly use her diaphragm and project her voice. Sarah's voice lessons have also been a perfect accompaniment to my daughter's speech therapy...and she enjoys the fun songs and encouraging words.
Have been taking singing lessons for a month so far and it is so much fun. I always leave with a smile on my face and progressively getting better week by week. Rosalind is a great teacher, very enthusiastic and has been amazing. Looking forward to my next lesson!!
Mary is extremely patient and knowledgeable. Great teacher for beginners like myself!
My 12 year old daughter absolutely loves taking lessons with Katie! Emmy has always been shy but loves to sing. Ever since she started lessons last fall, she has gained so much confidence and she is becoming less and less nervous to sing in front of us. Katie is always thoughtful and patient, and Emmy looks forward to her lesson every week.
Michael has given voice lessons to two of our kids and to me. His is a fantastic teacher -- creative, encouraging, and effective in getting the best of any voice.
My 10 year old daughter has been taking singing lessons from Paul for the past 2 years, (recently added guitar lessons) -- I cannot even put into words how awesome he is as an teacher. Just the right amount of nurturing, positive encouragement and fun. And he comes with years and years of "in the business" experience, so his advice really carries weight. It's a bit of a drive from where we are to get to him, but we cannot even imagine going to anyone else. Daughter literally looks forward to each lesson (this is the same person that groans every morning about school, just to give some context). Worth the drive. Worth the cost.
Working with Kathryn is the ideal situation. She is extremely knowledgeable about vocal technique and pedagogy, so she has a wealth of tools and approaches she can employ at any given time when a student is confronted with a vocal obstacle. She is always encouraging, supportive, invested, and very professional. On top of it all, Kathryn has opened up my sound exponentially and in a way that is equally as healthy as it is strong. I would recommend her voice lessons to any of my singing friends or family tenfold.
Jordyn is an amazing sensitive person that will just SEE you and help you bring that potential out into the world. She has helped me tremendously with being comfortable with my own voice and expressing myself in my own personal way. Can't recommend her enough, she always gets my throat chakra spinning. A truly holistic approach to singing and voice work.
Ive studied voice with a number of teachers, including some in New York who teach Broadway and opera professionals. John Peters is by far the most knowledgeable and effective I have ever seen. John can, of course, act as a coach to help you prepare for auditions and performances. But John's unique strengths are that he really understands how the body works to produce good sounds, and he knows how to communicate to his students so they can get it, too. If you are a beginner and its surprising, most of us actually are, even if weve studied with other teachers for years John has a series of exercises to get your breathing and vocal cords working the way they should. If youre an experienced singer, John is uncanny at immediately identifying the flaws in your technique and assigning special vocal exercises that address them specifically. He quickly enlarged my range from barely an octave-and-half to way more than two octaves, got my tone to resonate much more richly, and developed my vibrato into a dependable part of my voice that I could control. I recommend John very highly. He's that very rare vocal professional who is equally at home teaching the whole gamut from rock singing to country music to Broadway and opera "legit" technique. Whether youre a beginner who wants to sound better, or a working professional who wants to take his or her career to the next level, John knows how to pitch his instruction to you as an individual and help you achieve your goals.
When I first started with Markus in January of 2018, I had little professional vocal training and had a very under developed technique. In only a few lessons, I have seen a dramatic improvement both in how I sing as well as how I sound. Through guided lessons, I have been able to sing higher and sustain pitches longer than I ever have before, as well as develop a natural vibrato which is something I previously thought was impossible for me to attain. He is extremely kind and patient with his students, which is very crucial as it lets the student feel comfortable and not hold back sound or energy. By fostering an encouraging and positive space, mistakes are turned into learning opportunities and he will point out both things you are doing right as well as things that need minor tweaking. It is very obvious that he knows what he is doing and knows how to help students develop their own technique by offering tips and strategies for producing their best sound. I have been very happy with the progress I have made in such a short time, and would recommend him to anyone who is serious about improving their singing, as well as to seasoned singers who are looking for a way to keep their edge. Two thumbs up!
I went to Debra for voice lessons, she is an amazing teacher. She really helped me grasp concepts and helped me improve my vocal performance in a way I never imagined. She is a great teacher and I reccomend her for anyone looking to serisiosly improve their singing ability.
As a beginner-level guitar player and singer, I couldn't speak more highly of Taylor as a teacher. I've been doing lessons with him for almost 2 years now and have improved from complete beginner to recording songs! With his help, I've not only learned how to play songs on a guitar, but he has also taught me how to sing with the correct breathing and increased my range. One of the biggest benefits is that he has a home recording studio - not only is it cool to have my own recording, but it helps me learn to be able to listen to myself. Taylor's teaching style is very engaging and enthusiastic, plus he's patient with my musical inexperience. He teaches me songs I want to learn as well as unique guitar and singing skills. I would highly recommend Taylor to any aspiring musician who wants to have fun lessons while also improving drastically.
Cory has helped transform my instrument in three distinct ways. One, he has a dynamic understanding of vocal pedagogy, it's not just the feeling but the "how and why" of the voice. His techniques have expanded my range, breath control, and vocal interpretation of music. Most important, he listens to my needs, advocates for my unique sound, and partner's with me to make quality music. Lessons with Cory take work! You and your voice are center stage, and I feel I leave with a complete understanding of healthy singing and musicianship!!!
Miss Macri is an incredibly professional and educated teacher. I take voice and piano lessons with her and could not be happier. It has been a dream of mine to be able to perform in front of others. Miss Macri is patient and encouraging as I try to sing and play piano at the same time. After a year of lessons I just played my first open mic and received compliments from my family, friends and even a few strangers!!! So I would definitely recommend Miss Macri to anyone interested in starting or honing their music skills!
I love going to Jana's classes. Not only is she a great instructor of singing but she is also an all a around wonderful person. She shares her experiences and life with you in a way that makes you believe in yourself and your strength as an individual and as an artist. She has a great, bubbly personality and makes you feel very comfortable about your voice and your abilities, and she helps you to grow in that aspect and in many others. I definitely recommend Jana as a singing instructor for anyone.
Corinthia sung at my wedding in 2013! She sung a song by Jennifer Hudson and it was truly amazing. I will be using Corinthia in the future to train my daughter with vocal lessons and to sing at my future events.

I give kids the beginner tools to get them on their way to playing the guitar and singing. I enjoy working with children from all ages, and I believe that making it fun is the first step to engaging young students in positive practice habits.
