I basically asked Bulent to do a miracle, and he did it! I wanted to sing a song at my best friend's wedding, but have a terrible intonation and basically no former musical education. In a few lessons Bulent explained me the basics of singing and helped me to prepare the song. The result was great! I had so much fun that after this experience, I think I will keep taking classes with Bulent. Absolutely 5 stars!
For some reason I can't give him 5 stars. I am shy about my playing violin although I played as a child. He realized right away that although I can play by ear, I am very lacking in theory which I need to improvise. He explains things kindly without making me feel like a fool, and his lessons have been invalualbe
My twins have been taking Ms Julie's voice lessons for a nearly two years now and they have made a lot of progress !
My daughter has been taking vocal lessons with Aliana for 4 years. She teaches her technique, performance skills and helps her prepare for auditions. Aliana is patient and supportive. She is a professional and loves what she does.
Very flexible and understanding. Unfortunately, I had outside commitments that left my schedule a bit crazy and unpredictable, and Jessica always accommodate me ... However, I have yet to squeeze in a lesson, but I would highly recommend Jessica on professionalism alone, she's super sweet, excited about people's goals, and was willing to take on my idea for voice lessons, even though they were a little different (for public speaking).
My son has been taking piano lessons with Lenae for the past 5 years and we have been very happy with her. As he is approaching his teenage years, it's been a bit of a struggle to keep him interested but Lenae works hard to keep him engaged. She tries to find music he prefers while keeping him progressing musically. She is very patient and has a gentle manner with my son. Lenae also provides thorough and useful feedback on a regular basis. I would highly recommend Lenae if you are seeking piano lessons for your child or yourself (she has adult students too).
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!
I am currently taking guitar lessons with Jeanne and she is fantastic! She makes learning easy and fun. I would recommend her to anyone who is just beginning or who is experienced and wants to perfect their skill.
John, is fantastic at helping those with little to no musical experience, navigate, understand and apply principles that were previously outside of my comprehension. His positivity and enthusiasm in each lesson enables me to remain motivated and want to learn more. I’ve taken lessons from individuals in the past and his commitment and practical application far exceeds those I have learned from previously
David has been teaching me guitar for a little over a month now. I have already seen great advances in my technique, rhythm, and understanding of music. I have been playing guitar for 9 years off and on, and I have never had professional lessons. I can say that after a month with David, I am playing better than I ever have and believe that my guitar playing skills will continue to progress rapidly with David's help. His teaching technique is very casual and fun, almost conversational, and his insights are spot on. He is exactly what I hoped for in an instructor when I started looking at guitar lessons and I would highly recommend him for anyone who loves guitar, regardless of their skill level. He is a 'must hire' professional!
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.
Joyce has helped me find my voice and I am really enjoying my lessons. She is also an encyclopedia of all styles of singing
"I started Portuguese lessons with Paulo because I wanted a native Portuguese speaker as a teacher. What I got was SO much more. Paulo is very passionate about his language, his teaching, and clearly cares whether the student is understanding and assimilating the lessons presented. His training and career as an Opera singer provides him with flawless and beautiful pronunciation that is literally music to my ears. Because of his voice training he can also hear the slightest deviation in my own pronunciation and accent, allowing me to slowly perfect my own Portuguese pronunciation. The lessons are paced well, not too fast, not too slow, and I can vary the pace as I need to. I've studied several languages before and have never enjoyed the process as much as I do with Paulo. Because Paulo is so personable, I'm laughing while learning my way to fluency!" Rick Oliver
I sent him an e-mail explaining myself and how I have been taking lessons for more than a year,including the changes in my range. The thing I appreciated most was he wanted me to sing even though it was an interview.
Jeff is great! A consummate professional, he knows his craft and is a relevant, working artist in his field. I have attended two lessons with him and he has come up with great exercises, great ideas on how to get me where I want to be, vocally, and he puts the work in on his end to make sure each lesson is fruitful and meaningful.
She is the best! I am a cardiologist at Boston and our lessons during my lunch breaks are my sessions of meditation. The questionnaire (5 questions) that she gave me after our first meeting was brilliant. She understands me perfectly and she creates the greatest repertoire for me. After 6 months, I can say that we worked on anatomy, breathing techniques, singing quality, expanding my range, learning my voice and discovering my true voice with my favorite songs. Her professionalism put music to another level for me. I am having small gigs and enjoying being on stage!
So far I've only taken one lesson with Jen for violin; however, it was very encouraging and I have scheduled future lessons already. She was flexible with me on a time to meet and was quite enthusiastic when I arrived. It took some time to tune my instrument since it's been so long since I last played but she was patient as ever and got it perfect without even needing my digital tuner. The lesson itself went smoothly - she was conscientious of the fact that I have some music background but also no foundation for violin. We did cover some basic things, such as quarter notes and timings, to determine how much music theory I have but it never felt silly. Overall I would recommend trying for sure. :)
Hannah is a fabulous teacher! I’m enjoying taking classes with her. She is kind and welcoming and makes singing feel fun. I am understanding my voice a lot better each week.
Joyce is a lovely person whose knowledge of music is profound. We always have a great time a my lessons and I learn a lot.
It was great to meet Christyn. She is very sweet and puts you at ease. I am looking forward to a continued working relationship.
She is amazing overall!!
