I had one voice lesson with Chelsea and I love it every second of it. She is very friendly,nice and sweet. The most important is that she is very good teacher and very professional. I can’t wait for our next lessons together I feel like she will help me to conquer my sing skills goal.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Pete for about 5 years now. The 5 years that I have been getting lessons have been a really good and I have learned so much about the guitar. Firstly, when I first started I was starting from scratch and had absolutely no idea on how to play. But now im able to play with pretty good speed and keep up with the fast songs. His teaching style I believe is very good and easy to understand, helping you excell in whatever you are doing. And it' not boring at all. Each lesson I have had, I have at least laughed a couple of times. So overall he is a great teacher who I would recommend to anyone if they were looking to learn the guitar or any other instrument he teaches.
Whitney was amazing! She was very kind and encouraging the whole time even though I was a little nervous about doing everything right. She drove to me and basically gave me a private lesson at a great value! Everyone should learn these skills and it's great to know that I feel confident in helping someone in an emergency now thanks to Whitney's expertise. I would recommend taking a class with Whitney to anyone!
I've known Mr. Donati since before I can remember and I've taken lessons with him since I was 10 years old. He Is a fantastic instructor for people of all ages. He has taught me guitar and violin, and for a very brief time piano, and he always found ways to incorporate my love of singing into my lessons. He truly goes the extra mile to make sure you are enjoying the music you're making. He takes into consideration the types of music you enjoy and incorporates them into your lessons. You can tell that he takes a lot of pride in his work and is very patient, He loves to see you grow in all areas of music, even if it's not particularly something that he taught you. He has been very accommodating scheduling lessons and overall i've had an excellent experience growing as a musician with his help:)
I had been trying to find the right classical guitar teacher for years before taking lessons with Tim. Honestly, I have made more progress in a few months with Tim than I had made in nearly eight years of various other teachers. His love of music and teaching are evident in the fact that he really takes the time to understand your background (musical and otherwise), your musical interests, and your personal goals. He then tailors his approach with each lesson to ensure that you progress steadily as a musician through sound technique and theory rather than simply teaching you how to play songs. I highly recommend Tim to anyone interested in becoming a proficient guitarist in any style.
Tommy has been an excellent teacher. He mixes just the right amount of theory into the lessons when it is appropriate to explain what we are working on. He is also very personable and easy to work with. I can honestly say it was a great find when I found Tommy.
I am very happy to make a recommendation of Stanley Wilson as a voice teacher. My daughter has been taking weekly lessons with Stanley for over 3 years. Stanley has been an excellent teacher to her. She started from 7th grade when she really loved singing but was too shy to sing. But with coaching, and many practices, rehearsals and recitals, she developed her voice and strong confidence within one semester. Now she sings often, which is what she loves to do and I love to hear. As Stanley's student, she participates in events of A Worcester Schubertiad, a chamber music organization that Stanley leads, which is great for her. I too have been taking lessons with Stanley for over a year. Class time is distributed between techniques and practicing an actual piece. I am learning many techniques that help me improving and enjoying my singing. I like to think that my voice has developed substantially over the year. Stanley's students range from professional singers, to choir members, to recreational singers like myself, from middle school to retirement. While he is an accomplished vocal artist in classical singing and opera, he helps develop vocal techniques for students in diverse singing genres. Because Stanley is flexible in his approach, a new student should feel comfortable starting with him. What should also help is that Stanley is punctual and very professional in managing his teaching schedule. As importantly, his studio is located in an excellent location in Worcester where parking is never an issue. I have benefitted from and enjoyed my learning experience, and I highly recommend Stanley as a vocal teacher.
Taking voice lessons with Ms. Kephart helped me grow tremendously as both a singer and performer. She is kind, lively, and always willing to experiment new things with me. The lessons were individualized, focused on the specifics that I needed to improve upon so they were efficient and helpful. She gave me a lens into professional singing through the lessons as well. It was a great pleasure working with her!
I just started taking lessons with Joe about two months ago, and already we have developed a great rapport which helps a lot with my motivation and learning! He is always focused on what I want as a student and as a musician, and is excellent at encouraging disciplined instrument study as well as fostering a great environment to develop personal musicianship.
Good communication so far and looking forward to my classes!
I was a bit nervous starting piano lessons in my 70s but Jonathan has given me such encouragement and praise that I am eager to take on increasingly challenging pieces. He is very attentive both to my strengths and to things I need to work on. Lessons are stimulating and very rewarding. I have seen him perform in groups and solo piano - he is superb!
Concetta was my teacher for 10 years. She lead me from beginning piano and music reading all the way through college auditions for music school. I am now a music teacher in a public school, and teach piano lessons after school. Concetta nurtured my beginning interest in music and piano, and then challenged me to develop my skills and become an independent musician. In addition to musical skills, Concetta taught me focus, responsibility, and dedication. Professional, in depth music knowledge, kind, and encouraging.
Love guitar lessons with Steve! He has an abundance of experience, authored a great book, great CDs and amazing teacher. I am fortunate to have him for a teacher. Thanks for the motivation Steve!
Fast service and a very friendly guy. My son enjoys the lessons and is learning at a great pace.
I have known Angela for six years and she is kind to her students and very patient. She is very knowledgeable about the piano and her students really enjoy her lessons. She works very hard to make sure that her students continue growing and learn to love the piano. i have enjoyed each lesson with her.
I began taking voice lessons with Ashley in the summer of 2016 when I decided to begin a new solo project. The idea of singing was quite intimidating to me, but my experience with Ashley has eradicated that intimidation. She is a patient and thorough teacher who utilizes technique-building exercises, as well as songs (which show the practical application of the exercises). I've enjoyed every lesson, I've always walked out feeling like I've understood each lesson, and I know I'm a better a singer now thanks to her. What more could I ask for?
Mrs. Barone is a great instructor. Mrs. Barone teaches his students in a patient and understanding way and he provides and helps to build a strong foundation for his students. Besides, Mrs. Barone has broad and deep knowledge in the classical guitar specifically and music in general. I encourage you to enroll and take lessons with him because he will help you to achieve your goal in the future.
My grandson and I are taking lessons with Dr Burns. He is challenging us and giving us a very in-depth understanding of our selected pieces.
When I struggled to get the technique right, he not only showed a lot of patience, but he tried various methods of explaining/demonstrating the lesson until I got it. After a little bit of practice, the piece that I struggled with through the first half of my lesson feels like second nature to play. I highly recommend Blackledge Guitar Institute for guitar lessons, no matter what level you're at.
He is awesome and personable!
Very professional, great with kids and adults . Immediately put my rather shy 12 year old at ease. Clearly talented and his love of music is contagious. Beautiful studio! Looking forward to more lessons.
