It was clear from the very first session that Jimmy Lee is an incredibly talented and patient teacher. After just a few lessons, my knowledge of music theory, vocal technique, and confidence performing increased exponentially. By incorporating the latest recording equipment and his experiences as a successful singer, song writer, and musician, Jimmy Lee has been able to help me improve my singing in a remarkably short amount of time. He is always willing to work around my somewhat unpredictable schedule, and often offers to continue teaching longer than the allotted lesson time. It is obvious that Jimmy Lee truly cares for all of his students and does everything he can to help them succeed. I am extremely luck to have found such an amazing teacher and am excited about the opportunity to continue learning from him.
Dr. Hall is by far one of the best teachers and mentors I have ever had. Not only has he improved my singing exponentially in just a few lessons, but he has helped me with my personal life in planning for college and my career. I do not regret a cent.
I have never had a better vocal coach! Not only does Kathleen provide a wonderful, nurturing, positive, and professional atmosphere but she also makes singing and lessons a lot of fun. She has taught me lots of things from increasing vocal range and reading music. Very easy to talk to and a wonderful trustworthy person to be around. I couldn't recommend anyone more highly than Kathleen. Give her a call and you won't regret it! She's awesome!
Verity is a highly skilled vocal professional who focuses on solid technique and musicianship. She gives her students the opportunities they need to strive for their goals and succeed as classically trained vocalists. I highly recommended Verity from my own experience taking lessons from her. I was taught for four years in high school and competed in and won various vocal competitions. I also took lessons on and off through college. Through the years, I have taken many opportunities to sing at political events and church gatherings and take part in musical theater productions. I attribute my successes to my lessons with Verity. I find it amazing how much I improved over time through my lessons, and I still thoroughly enjoy singing when the opportunity arises.
Bethany has been providing voice lessons to my 10-year-old daughter for a few weeks. She clearly knows what she is doing both musically and regarding working with children. She knows how to talk to my daughter and challenge her without overwhelming her with too much information all at once. I have been most impressed with her willingness to go above and beyond to meet my daughter's interests by looking for specific music for her that will meet her personal needs. We both love that she didn't just come in with her own plan and try to force my daughter to adapt to it. She has also been great because she is not trying to force my daughter to sing like a Disney princess which is good because my daughter is an alto, not a soprano! She is really helping her learn how to control and get the most out of her own voice. I cannot think of anything that I would change about our experience with Bethany.
I had the opportunity to have voice lessons with Anya and it was absolutely great! She was flexible enough to work with me via Skype since we weren't located in the same state. Each week there was something new I learned about music and singing in general. Every time we tried something new Anya made sure I had full understanding of it and was very open to questions. I would definitely recommend Anya to anyone who is looking for vocal or music lessons. She's totally the best fit for the job! 😊
I'm a stage actor and in the summer of 2016,when I was home from my graduate acting program, I was looking for a voice teacher to study with so I could brush up on my musical theatre skills. I met with Michelle on the recommendation of a dear friend of mine without knowing very much about her. I did not know at that point that I was in for one of the most transformative experiences of growth in the way I approach my voice I've had in my life. I had come off of a year of voice classes that specialized in vocal work for the stage, but not singing. I was itching to apply what I had been learning to my musicianship (I'd done professional musical theatre work prior to grad school and have been playing trumpet and singing nonprofessionally for many years.) The most remarkable thing about her instruction was that she used her great gifts as a teacher and musician to meet me where I was. She was able to quickly assess what I already knew and give me work that would challenge me. Moreover, because she is a regularly performing artist herself, she was incredibly engaged in not merely the technical work of vocal production, but what I wanted to say with music as an individual artist. Having learned from many instructors over the years, I can say that that level of respect, skill and generosity is very uncommon. If I'm ever back in the KC Metro area for any length of time, you can bet I will be contacting her for more help.
I am fifty-one and wanted to take a few guitar lessons. I was turn on to Jacob back in February of 2012 and go for thirty minute lessons once a week. I suppose there are hundreds of good teachers in the ares, but I think in Jacob I have found a good mix of what I need to know and what I want to know. In the short time that Jacob has been teaching me, I can now read music, know a little about theory, know enough chords to play hundreds of song! We spend a lot of time playing scales up and down the neck, this is called soloing. Its what you hear in most rock and blues with all the bends, hammer on, hammer off and slides. I take my lessons sometime with my acoustic and then my electric. I will never be able to play classical like Andres Segovia or shred like Slash, but with Jacobs help someday soon I will be able to play a ton of stuff. Each week he gives me more and more tools to help me to fulfill a dream I have had for as long as I can remember. Give Jacob a try and see if he's a good fit with what you want to accomplish. You may want to pay him just to play for you!
A lovely vocal instructor, Amy was punctual, clearly knowledgable, and incredibly patient with our five year old. Somehow, she got the kid (who wanted lessons) to sing and sing well. And, it's nice having instructor with a beautiful voice to overhear from the other room.
