I've only had one piano lesson so far, but I can tell that Diane will be a fabulous teacher. Kind, smart, experienced, patient, fun, on-time, laid back. Yep! The real deal. Can't wait to learn the next Song in my John Thompson book! Jani Kregor
She works wonderfully with my two daughters.We have had two lessons and have already seen improvement The girls say she makes singing fun and easy
I have been singing professionally for over 30 years, however, the vocal lessons I experienced with Jessie Laine Powell enabled me to improve my ability to control & achieve an untapped power In my voice I never knew existed! I encourage any person to invest in themselves by securing a spot in Jessie's classes. You won't regret it!!
I took guitar lessons with Chris Mattingly from 2003-2005 and found the service to be outstanding. In 2003 I was 15 and had very little music education or experience with any instrument, but nonetheless Chris quickly set me on a course that would change my life. Chris had a clever way of making the lessons fun by quickly identifying the music I responded to and finding the right songs within that style that I could play even at a beginner level. Realizing I enjoyed blues and rock, Chris took me from Chuck Berry to Hendrix and Clapton within a few lessons. I remember being impressed at how he could put a CD of Hendrix or Clapton on, and transcribe it in real time. But the service didn't stop there, teaching rock and blues was only scratching the surface of what Chris had to offer. In under a year Chris had taught me to improvise my own melodies, learn advanced musical theory, read music, and begin playing jazz standards. I also want to mention that as a great teacher, Chris was also very personable, and had a great way of encouraging the students (I also took a group jazz class under his instruction). Chris was highly qualified, having both a bachelors and a masters in music, and as such, he was more than able to garner even my obsessive interest with the instrument. By the time I ended my time studying with Chris, he had helped prepare me for college auditions in classical guitar performance. I can only presume that Chris has continued to hone his excellence as an educator and player in the decade since I studied under him.
Ciyadh was the best guitar teacher I have ever had! I had been to other instructors before, but Ciyadh really made the learning process more exciting! She challenged me to perform my best and will definitely encourage you to practice, but I can confidently say that I am a much better guitar player today because of Ciyadh!
Amazing teacher! I've had several music teachers in the past skip over important things or teach me wrong. Mr. Brown always managed to explain things in a way I would understand. He made sure I understood before moving on; something many teachers fail to do. My rhythm has improved tremendously thanks to him. I went from only knowing chords and strum patterns to being able to figure out how to play most songs on my own. I would still be taking lessons from him if we were in the same area. He does especially well at making sure his students have a place to play music. He doesn't simply put on recitals which can be rather boring and tedious. His student concerts allow his students to learn what it's like to play in front of a real crowd with a live band. Even though I was a guitar student, he still taught me vocal techniques and coached me on any instrument I wanted to learn. He always took time out of his own day to help me if I had a problem. He is the defenition of going above and beyond!
I've been taking guitar lessons from Chris for two years, and I have learned so much from him in just a short amount of time. He has taught me a variety of music genres through both songs and scales. Chris is an exceptional guitarist and has an extensive knowledge of music! He excels at blending theory with practical techniques and methods. Chris helps me set weekly goals, and I always feel comfortable asking him questions. He is both encouraging and motivating. In addition, Chris has a very impressive music background--he recieved classical training in Spain, he plays in a few bands, and he has even recorded his own CD! If you're looking for a guitar teacher that will take you far, I highly recommend Chris Sullivan!
Currently based as a vocal coach in a high school, I have an extensive experience with working with others to develop their vocal abilities and goals. Trained as a singer since I was a young child, I received vocal scholarships to two universities and sang at various prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall, St. Patricks Cathedral, and the 2010 World Equestrian Games. I also toured Europe with an opera troupe, recording Aaron Copeland's the Tenderland. Now, I have turned my attention to fostering the development of new musicians. It is my goal to help each individual find his/her own true voice.
I am a professional voice coach for students who want to pursue pop, R&B, gospel, musical theater, and classical music.
I hold a doctorate in vocal performance. I am very comfortable in teaching voice lessons, repertoire, diction (languages -- English, Italian, French, German and Spanish), acting, performance, concert preparation and consultant.
Our mission statement is "to keep the performing arts alive and to spread the joy and beauty of music to all ages". Our lessons include the following: - Music Theory (written and aural) - Voice Lessons - Beginners Piano
