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!!!

Justin's studio is a safe space. Any fears or ego quickly dissolve after a few minutes of vocalizing with him, and gradually a natural, truthful voice emerges that you might not have known you had. His devotion to teaching, his gentle manner, his comprehensive knowledge of the human voice, his kindness and delightful sense of humor cultivate a secure, comfortable studio environment. I've come to realize through lessons with Justin that encouraging and embracing a peaceful spirit make for an open, warm, honest sound. I often leave Justin's studio feeling the way I do when I leave yoga. I am proud to call Justin my teacher.

Julie is still my voice teacher. She's excellent. I've made a lot of progress under her instruction. I had tried to learn proper singing on my own, but you really need an expert there in the room to give you real time feedback. That said, she also gives a mean Skype lesson, which I opted for a few times when I was too unwell to travel. Both in person and remote lessons are well worth it if you want to take your singing to the next level.

About

I took several piano/composition lessons and also a recording session (violin) 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. I also recorded some violin segments in his studio, which turned out very well.

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.

Conor has done a fantastic job of taking a beginning singer with limited experience and identifying where improvement can be made. He gives his students tools that they can use to practice on their own and for the rest of their singing career to keep on improving. The environment for singing is very professional and made comfortable for a novice. Having cd recordings of the lesson is also a great touch that allows the student a chance to do their homework and continue growing beyond the scheduled session. Conor as a working musician knows the craft and has been a great choice in helping me achieve my musical goals.

Chris Toppin is one of our main instructors and vocal coaches at Girls Rock Campaign Boston. After she volunteered as Vocal Instructor and Band Coach, so many of our Women and Girl campers wanted to keep learning from her that she had to start her own private instruction! She has perfect pitch and is an incredible singer. She will change the way you sing and can teach you any style you want to learn. She is a warm and inspiring and I have learned so much just by working and recording with her. I would recommend her to anyone- amateur or professional!

Daniel is a great teacher. He is very patient. He put a lot of passion in what he does. In a very short time people could notice how better my singing was and treated as a real professional. I would strongly recommend him. Daniel is very professional, however he will be a friend who will always be on your side, help you develop self-confidence and go beyond your expediencies.

Awesome! I have rarely seen my 12 year old daughter as positive and excited as she is now, at the end of her workshop with Ruby. Ruby's comments were astute, thoughtful, reflective and improved my daughter's performance no end. Thank you Ruby!

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!

I've only had one lesson as of now but thus far I've really enjoyed Linda's instructions. I am a beginner with very little experience and Linda did a great job explaining new concepts and vocal exercises. She clearly knows her stuff. The only reason I'm not giving 5 stars is because I've only had one lesson. I'm sure in a few weeks I'll update to 5!

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

I studied classical, musical theater and jazz from very good teachers so I'm well educated on techniques that have been used for years and are nothing but beneficial in the long run. However, I have also studied at a renowned music school and with musicians who teach all manner of modern techniques and styles. Pop, folk, rock, etc. I think I have a very dynamic style of teaching. Mixing old techniques with new ones. As a child, I was introduced to the music world and immediately hooked. I love nurturing the talents of others and seeing their drive and passion for the art of music grow. It's beautiful and I love being a part of that.
