I am a scientist who loves singing. I found Bulent Guneralp three years ago after moving to Boston for my PhD and searching for singing teachers online. His website detailing his experience and all the positive reviews made me consider him, and I am really happy that I did so. Mr. Guneralp is a unique teacher and human being. He is multi-talented yet very down-to-earth, he is very encouraging yet expects the best from you, constantly improves himself and his teaching methods, and is overall fun to work with. He doesn't only teach but also performs, so he knows what it is like to perform live and the expectations of stage life. I first started taking voice lessons 10 years ago, continued on and off, but did not perform in public until studying with Mr. Guneralp, who helped me overcome my stage fright and sing solo in a concert for the first time in 2016! His scientific teaching method which also uses certain visualizations helped me better understand and use my body as a vocal instrument. I believe not only my technical progress but my overall development as a singer gave me the confidence to sing for the first time in public. We have been working on arias and art songs in Italian, German, French, English and Turkish! My diction in these different languages has improved. I also learned a great deal of sight-singing, music theory and ear-training, areas in which I was not educated in the past. Recently I moved to Maryland, yet continue taking lessons from him remotely via Skype / FaceTime. I strongly recommend Mr. Guneralp to anyone, professional or amateur, interested in developing their vocal and musical skills.
Otis has a great understanding of music and the learning process and would be great for all ages and style of play
When I set up my first guitar lesson with Nick I wasn't sure what to expect and was really nervous to be learning something so unfamiliar. I quickly found out that I had chosen an extremely patient, understanding and encouraging music teacher. Not only does Nick have the knowledge to back up his music experience but he also has fun ways to help you remember small lessons along the way. In a few short weeks I have built both confidence and passion to play the guitar and have completely shocked myself with how far along I have come. I truly believe Nick can help any dedicated aspiring musician no matter what level of experience they have.
Jaime is the best guitar teacher ever. He's very patient and had all the knowledge to point me in the right direction to take my guitar playing to another level. His passion for music inspired me a lot!! Thx so much Jaime!
Aliana is honestly the best vocal coach I have had in my years of vocal training. I have been to many coaches, some have been over priced, too strict and confusing... the list goes on and on. Aliana caters her lessons to the individual. I have worked with coaches in the past that work with specific CDs and specific regiments but I found I was struggling because I was trying to force myself into this little box. What I love about Aliana is that she comes up with specific exercises for MY voice. She can make proper adjustments to my voice on the spot and I am always leaving our lessons feeling like a better and more knowledgeable singer. She is very patient and kind making me feel comfortable and confident. I would highly recommend Aliana to all singers! Beginner, intermediate and advanced singers grow and flourish with Aliana. -Liz Bills www.AnalogHeartBand.com Berklee College of Music 2012 American Idol finalist 2013
I would highly recommend Brad as a guitar teacher. He has experience teaching students at a range of skill levels and takes time to understand a player's specific musical interests. He has a flexible approach, offering lessons over Skype and making himself available for questions in between lessons. I will keep working with Brad in the future and any other guitar players in his area should do the same.
I am a new student of Dor Herskovits. My experience so far has been excellent. He has gone out of his way to try to accommodate my schedule, and meet me after work. He is very knowledgable and eager to share his knowledge. His lessons consist of theory, technique, rudiments and also getting down and playing the drums! The lesson is very well balanced. I am a Music teacher myself in the NYC public school system, so I am pretty good at recognizing someone will talent, who knows his stuff, and is a good teacher. Dor has it all and really seems to care! I highly recommend Dor Herskovits.
Ms. Testa has been teaching my 14 year old daughter, Madeline, for the last year now and she loves it! I have seen so much improvement in her voice and confidence both on and off the stage. Ms. Testa is always a patient, yet firm teacher who comes up with creative and fun ways to instruct Madeline in theory, vocal improvisation, and musical expression. Madeline always enjoys going to her lessons and is even more excited to show what she has learned to our relatives. Ms. Testa has even spent extra time with Madeline before auditions for school and community theater (for no extra cost to us). She truly cares about her students and that is why she is such an excellent music teacher. I highly recommend her to everyone in her area!
Most of the guitarists I listen to have had great teachers training and inspiring them. This motivated me to really join a Guitar school and be taught by a professional teacher. I was told by a friend of mine to get in touch with G4 Guitar School and I was all excited to finally join. My happiness sky'rock'eted when I got to know Shane Allessio, a professional Jazz musician, was going to be my guitar teacher. Trust me, it's great to be taught by a professional musician. Shane is very patient, yes this is what I looked for as an absolute beginner! He loves teaching as much as he loves playing music. Shane has taught me new tricks, ways to play guitar, and already in my 5th month now, I am getting very comfortable playing chords, scales, and most importantly songs :). He makes sure you're practising every single day, which shows his strong interest in you learning faster. I strongly recommend this school for anyone at any age. I am totally satisfied with my learning and it gives me such immense joy to strum my guitar everyday. Thanks to Shane and the G4 method.
Although we have only had one lesson for my son, Grey was great. He takes a thoughtful approach and wants to cultivate the love of music and have students walking away with a good experience. He is very knowledgeable and explains things in accessible terms.
Best music teacher... my daughter learned so fast in a short time. and in a fun inviorment... Jeanne is absolutely great with kids!!
I consider Dr. Valchinov to be one of the most talented violinist, as well as a very thoughtful person. He has a beautiful, refined, classy tone, as well as a deep understanding of music. He has the interpretation skills to perform music from a broad range of styles and eras; he has a wonderful understanding of classical music, and a charm that shows through his music in a very gentle way. While he was doing his doctorate at Boston University, he has gained the respect of his peers and teachers alike. Dr. Valchinov has a very natural talent, and on stage he is very focused and involved. He creates his own atmosphere and invites audiences into his music. I recommend him as the best violin teacher since he is the most hard working, dedicated musician!
I've had multiple sessions with Josh. He's extremely knowledge about Ableton and music theory in general. Since starting my lessons I've learned how to master my tracks and many different techniques to help make my tracks sound more unique.
Jonas is has been a very positive influence influence in my life as a friend and colleague. He is a great musician and teacher. He knows the guitar very well and there is much to learn from this guy! You will not be disappointed with his services!
Over this passed year I have watched not only my grandson but other students of Rob's arrive at their class time with smiles and enthusiasm. Rob is not only a gifted guitarist but also a gifted teacher, his students are proof of that. After every class my grandson says , " I think that was my best lesson yet." I'm so pleased with the level my grandson has reached in 12 short months. I also love that Rob takes the time to have his students perform at various town venues, ultimately teaching his students a sense of community. We are so fortunate that Rob's guitar school offers lessons in our town. I'm looking forward to watching my grandson and Rob's students continue to grow over the years. Margaret D
It's being the best experience I've ever had with a singing teacher. He not only cares about your goals and adjusting to your own pace, but teaching you how to really feel in the inside and sing like the old great tenors. He knows how to get the most of each class but also is really patience, a key skill because singing properly takes time and a lot of work. I'll definitely recommend him, and I'm sure he'll be my teacher for a lot of years.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Jacob is your guy. What you look for in a teacher is someone who ENJOYS teaching you, is patient, and allows you to enjoy what you're doing. You can tell Jacob cares about what he does and he cares about teaching someone the guitar. In a short period, I've learned a ton from him and he's even gone out of his way to send videos of stuff I've needed to practice. If you're looking for an instructor, Jacob is the man for the job!
Johnny is an excellent cello teacher and a phenomenally skilled cellist! He is very thoughtful and pays close attention to the student's technique for both fingering and bowing. Johnny gives great anecdotes and analogies to illustrate how to think about playing a certain song or bow strokes for a certain section, for example. He is fun and patient and readily adapts to what the student needs. I highly recommend Johnny as a cello teacher, for cello students of all levels!
My son has taken drum lessons with Brian for a few years. What we all appreciate was that he was is so flexible with the music my son has to play from typical school music to praise music. He also has been very flexible with the times my son has his lessons. Brian has done an outstanding job both teaching and relating to my son. He has never been short with him but has encouraged him to grow in his music and to learn new and different techniques playing the drums. Brian is one of the few teachers I can honestly say without hesitation the lessons are great quality for the money and the lessons can only help my son to grow in the coming years.
Liana is a great teacher.
Upon meeting Ben, I was very impressed by his professional attitude and his engaging approach to our first lesson. He had us begin by playing a 4 on the 4 floor groove, and payed close attention to my hands and technique so he could assess where I was, and where I wanted to/could be. He wasted no time in giving me helpful tips to improve my left arm. He also wrote out exercises for me, and reading is imperative for me as a personal goal, so it was perfect. I'm very thankful that I went with Ben over the other two teachers who quoted me. I'm excited for our next lesson!
