Conor did an excellent job making me comfortable in the first voice lesson, despite being very self-conscious making noise. I like his approach and am looking forward to seeing how it develops my ability to sing.

Jack is an awesome teacher! I've had 3 guitar lessons so far and have learned so much already. He makes each lesson fun and doable. At our first lesson, he asked me to name a song I'm into right now and the lessons have been structured in a way to get me playing that song while learning fundamentals. I highly recommend taking lessons from him!

Joelle is a wonderful vocal coach, and my daughter really enjoys their lessons. She has diverse talents, and they have worked on classical, contemporary, music theater, and even opera pieces. Joelle plays piano and is able to provide accompaniment for her students. She is dependable, punctual, very pleasant, and fun to work with.

About

Bulent is a dedicated teacher who puts his heart and full attention into his lessons. He truly cares about his students and gives them his time even outside of the lessons. After the first few weeks with him, I could already hear and, most importantly, feel the improvement in my voice. Through his concise explanations on breath control, vocal technique and body alignment, and instructions on how to make certain hand movements to aid the voice through the visualization of air flow or the precise movements of the cricoid cartilage in the larynx, I am quickly learning the correct singing technique. I also find the ear training and music theory aspects of the lessons helpful. Bulent asked me what genres I was interested in singing, and after telling him jazz and opera, he introduced me to some pieces I had never known before. I ended up adoring them, especially Lullaby of Birdland. My repertoire is now getting richer in classical and jazz repertoire, and my cultural knowledge of important jazz and opera singers of the past and present-day is also increasing. I am learning how to interpret pieces from different genres and sing them with the same, natural technique. He has taught me to only place vocal ornaments where they have meaning so as to have an authentic delivery and pure sound. I began lessons with him because I wanted to improve my technique after becoming the vocalist in my college band (I had never sung seriously before), but I would recommend Bulent to anyone at any level of singing because of his patience, warmth, experience, undivided attention and professionalism.

About

My oldest daughter has been with Music Elements for a year and a half and she loves it! She takes voice lessons with Laura; only after a few lessons her voice quality and range improved quite noticeably. Since then my daughter has had many performances, solos and leads in shows. Anita, the owner, is so welcoming and accommodates us with lessons to work around our busy schedules if needed. She answers her e-mails right away and is always pleasant! My second oldest started taking piano with Dan and is thriving with progress every week. The waiting room offers crayons for my younger ones - and coffee/water for adults (which is so nice after a long day). The staff is friendly and the students leave happy! I'm so glad that Anita found me on here and we are thankful to work with such a talented, successful school right here in our home town! Boston and New York quality teaching in Chelmsford, Ma.

About

My 9 year old daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Julie for a year. She has progressed nicely and really enjoys the lessons. The end of the year recital was wonderfully entertaining and a great goal for my daughter to work towards. Julie has been easy to communicate with and I have already recommended her to other mothers.

About

LB Music School offers voice lessons, guitar lessons, drum lessons, piano lessons, violin lessons, ukulele lessons and bass lessons. We work with absolute beginners as well as people who have been studying on their own for years. Some benefits of taking lessons with us include the ff: 1. Proven Track Record. We have helped many students over the years learn to play their instruments as well as sing. Most of our students come in with no prior music knowledge or experience. So whether you are an absolute beginner or someone looking for more direction in your studies, we can help you. Visit some of our testimonials at our website. 2. Experienced And Qualified Teachers. The reason our students are so successful is that all of our teachers are highly experienced at what they do. You do not need to become a new teacher's test subject. We will help you reach your goals. Also, all of our teachers are fully background checked. 3. Personalized Lessons. We will not teach a lesson the same to a 50 year old classic rock fanatic as we would to a eight year old Taylor Swift fan. Everyone has different goals for their instrument as well as different musical interests. We will personalize lessons to help meet your goals and needs. 4. Month To Month Lessons. No need to sign-up for semesters of be locked into contracts that require you to sell a kidney to get out of. Our lessons are month to month and your can stop any time. 5. Discounted Trial Lesson. We know selecting a teacher is an important process. We want you to make the right decision and that is why we offer a discounted, 30-minute intro lesson to all new students. Come to the school, meet with a teacher and see if we are the right fit for you. We know you will be glad that you did.

About

Barbara is amazing! She is so friendly, warm, and inviting that even for a person as shy as I am it is easy to sing in front of her. She really knows what she is teaching and makes sure that you start with the proper techniques for breathing so you don't hurt your voice in any way. She also makes sure you understand the material or exercises and why you are doing them before you leave to practice on your own. She is motivational and inspiring! After every lesson, I can't wait to go home and practice and then of course, to see what the next lesson holds in store for me! Although I've only had a few lessons thus far, I can say without a doubt, that she is one of the best teachers I have ever had in any subject area, not just singing!!!

About

I took several piano lessons and lessons on composition with Peter. Peter is very experienced with piano teaching and also very knowledgeable with various genres that I was interested in. He introduced me to the basic theories (chord progressions, rhythms, and etc) of jazz and samba and also helped with a composition that I was working on.

About

Maya is fantastic to work with! I hadn't taken a voice lesson in years and she made me feel completely comfortable and we had a ton of fun. She was also super flexible about scheduling. I was late to our first lesson and she was fine with pushing it forward an hour so I could get there without stressing! Overall it was a fantastic experience and I will continue lessons with her. I highly recommend Maya!

About

Emily has been helping with singing. First with breath support as I did not have a clear feel for what I should be doing. She has a lot of tools for helping one learn a technique; to help you feel it. If one doesn't work, try another. This is very important since you can't just tell someone how to sing; at least not me. As we continue with lessons, Emily is very aware of things that I do that are not benefitial to singing and works to correct them. Not so easy since I'm on the older side and have many ingrained bad habits.

Verified review

I’m sooo very happy to have found Julie. Singing is like any hobby or skill you pursue, where you can’t see how far you’ve come until a little bit of time has passed. I’m so excited to say that while it didn’t feel like work, or feel like I was “training hard,” my voice has changed for the better! I can’t believe the difference between when I walked in for the first lesson, and where I am now, and it all happened naturally. I love that I can feel confident she is working and training my voice, even at times when I’m there just to have fun and de-stress. As other reviewers said, she is very open to any style and will work with whatever inspires YOU. She is constantly training herself, which means you get the benefit of what she has learned and experienced, as well as what new information she gains from other singers and teachers. — I’m still taking lessons with Julie, and I look forward to more progress and discovery!
