I am thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from Bulent. I have no prior experience in music and decided to take voice coaching lessons so I can begin singing in my church. Bulent clearly has a vast knowledge of music and patiently taught me the fundamentals which I found very valuable for a beginner like me. I learned so much from the first lesson and was so motivated I immediately signed up for weekly sessions. Despite his many accomplishments and impressive music career, Bulent was down to earth, patient and friendly which made for a session where I felt more comfortable and more receptive to learn. I am very excited and optimistic to see how my voice improves over time!
Took lessons from Andy from 94' to 97'...I had been playing for ten years up to that point. He showed me things that gave me so many A-HA moments in my guitar playing.He also gave me the nickname 'hot licks'..because of my propensity for wanting to try to play fast all the time. He was very personable and patient...and funny. These lessons didn't only teach me new ideas that made my playing almost immediately better...these lessons also taught me how to approach learning. Hard to believe its already been 20 years!
I signed my 5 year old daughter up for singing lessons, and she is quite shy. Julie has been very kind and good at making my daughter feel comfortable and confident.
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
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).
A perfect match for my 15 year old daughter taking singing lessons. Amanda's knowledge, talent, and enthusiasm are contagious. She has fostered my daughter's confidence and developed her singing skills. I highly recommend Amanda. You become part of her singing family and she gives more than 100% of herself each lesson. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
After just a few lessons, my singing has improved and I can play simples songs on the keyboard.
I've been taking singing lessons with Cristina since 2015, and thanks to her method, I finally understood how to breath with my diaphragm, how to properly project my voice without pain, and enhance my stamina. She taught me also how to build a strong stage presence and we worked on developing my performance skills as well as how to face my stage fright. She coached me not just vocally but also psychologically, she is able to infuse a great positive energy and inspiration that boosted my motivation of achieving higher goals. I sang notes that I could never imagine i could sing, and I sang songs that I though might be too hard for me without Cristina's encouragement and belief. She helped me to increase my self-esteem and the belief that I can do anything with the right self-discipline, mindset and perseverance. Tiziana V.
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 is a creative and skilled teacher that is able to transform singing lessons into a fun experience. Very good at providing individually tailored lessons, she does not burden students with unnecessary structure. Emily connects well with male and female students across all age groups. I can recommend Emily to everyone that is interested in improving/perfecting his/her singing skills.
I'm in my 80s and am taking jazz lessons from Joyce. She is a friend as well as a teacher. She shares her enthusiasm for music and teaches not just about playing the piano but also about the composers and the ways of personalizing my playing. Taking lessons from her has been a wonderful experience for me. I would recommend her to all age groups as she is so attuned to each person she is teaching. She's a special person.
Jacque is the best. End. Of. Story. She knows the anatomy of singing. I can recall being impressed from the first phone call when i placed my first lesson. She was confident and i could tell she knew her trade. I was right. She has been dead-on-accurate with predicting how soon I'd progress and what i could expect. I lived an hour from her when we started lessons. The drive was worth it! If you want to get better at singing and understanding yourself, go with Jacque. You won't regret it. Oh and I've made huge gains. I'm still with her because one never stops growing. It's been 10 years. I've never regretted one lesson. Ok maybe the one i couldn't make when i was sick but that's it!
As a young woman I studied voice as I dreamed of one day singing at The Met. My teacher encouraged me to go to New York, but a trepidation of being on stage and a career kept me in Boston. After quitting my job I was looking for something fun to do and my son encouraged me to sing again and recommended lessons with his teacher. Gabe is great. As an older student I truly appreciate his ear, his attention to even the smallest details of my voice and his amazing ability to help me to bring out the richer qualities of my voice. He has also built my confidence and I finally sang before an audience. If only I’d known him in the 80s who knows what might have happened because at Wednesday lessons I feel like I could fly.
Looking forward to beginning singing lessons in June. Thank you! Melody Rajotte
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!
I decided to take up the violin again after last having touched one over forty years ago. I have been taking violin lessons with Haley for over six months. She quickly helped me get back some sense of the instrument. She has been patiently taking me through scales, rhythm, tempo, sight reading , and in addition has exposed me to the basics of music theory. I have found her to be welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, yet also professional. We go through scale drills, are making our way through basic Hal Leonard books, and even do a little jamming on some rock ballads that she has downloaded for us to play along with. I haven't been practicing as much as I could or should, but Haley is cool with it. It's all been a challenge for me, but I am thoroughly enjoying it. When I progress to a higher level of playing ability, I am certain her high level of violin musicianship and teaching skill will be greatly helpful in allowing me to reach my musical goals. I would highly recommend Haley as a violin teacher for aspiring musicians of all skill levels.
My daughter has been taking voice lessons and absolutely loves going. She's only seven years old and has already learned so much and it's taught in a manner that allows her to totally understand and put all techniques into practice. Her teacher gives her full attention at each lesson and makes sure that the time you've paid for is used for you. I highly recommend them!
I took piano lessons with Mary. She is a wonderful and professional teacher. I would highly recommend New England Music Studio - Great learning experience and a lot of fun
He offers services that are professional,and very personalized! He makes his lesson plans geared toward my individual needs. Lastly, he has always been supportive of whatever I aspire to do. It is a pleasure to work with him as a former voice student and current piano student. I highly recommend him for any of his services!
I began taking voice lessons from Peter Hostage in May and have been highly satisfied with my decision to do so. If you are considering taking music lessons with Mr. Hostage, know that you can expect a high level of professionalism, a relaxed atmosphere, and most importantly, quality musical instruction. As someone who began singing at an early age, I have had the opportunity to sing both individually and as part of numerous groups. In just three weeks Peter has introduced me to technique that I had not been exposed in my 10+ years singing. I am confident that continued lessons with Mr. Hostage will enhance my vocal ability. The lessons are definitely worth the investment!
Just started working with Michael. He’s a talented artist and passionate about Music which is exactly what I was looking for in a music (singing) instructor for my 15 year old daughter. She looks forward to her lesson and most recently creating her own songs!
