I am not a music pro. Rather, I sing and play in an amateur band. I very highly recommend voice lessons with Bulent. He is a fun and energetic teacher who really makes learning enjoyable with his sense of humor and a cup of tea. He teaches rigorously and formally. He worked with my style and ability (pop and rock) and helped me study the songs I sing in my band (Stevie Wonder, Steely Dan, etc). Bulent was always prepared including finding Karaoke versions of songs on Youtube or being able to play them on piano to facilitate lessons. He helped me understand how the body works physically as an instrument (where the sound resonates), how to breath, and how to stand. I sing better! He also helped me understand falsetto singing. He has a flexible and convenient scheduling system. In all I learned a lot and enjoyed doing so. Also, Bulent kindly introduced another student of his - to become the lead singer of our band - she is very talented under the tutelage of Bulent.
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
I have been taking voice lessons from Julie Kinscheck for over three years now and am very pleased with her as a teacher. I have a very busy schedule as a manager and she has been very flexible in making the lessons happen. These lessons have built my confidence and inspired me to perform more often because of my growth as a singer. I enjoy singing in the regular student recitals. I appreciate her patience helping me to learn to read music, improve my breath support, tone and more. She also has a good listening ear when I need to talk. She motivates me to want to practice to be my best. I also see she is an excellent role model for her younger students, always willing to expand her own horizons by learning and then teaching them songs which they want to perform. She genuinely cares about her students and takes a personal interest in their lives. You can tell she has a passion for teaching. I highly recommend her!
Our daughter was interested in voice lessons and when we first met with Aliana we knew immediately she was the right choice. Friendly professional, extremely talented in voice, tone, tempo, expression, motivation and professionalism. In addition to her excellent lessons and mentoring she works hard at developing strengths and identifying areas that need improvement. Aliana also gets her students involved in public performances to develop their talent and self esteem.
I've really been enjoying my voice lessons with Amanda. In the past few months I've gained confidence and now have a lot of tools for warming up and protecting my voice, as well as dealing with performance anxiety. I'm pleased with my progress and vocal development and highly recommend studying with Amanda!
At the age of 54 I decided to take up piano after many years of toying with the idea. I had no music bankground and didn't know a staccatto from a fortissimo. My daughter had been taking voice lessons from Lenae and when she had an opening I decided the time had come. I am thrilled that I did. I love playing piano and, although I don't have any particular talent for it, I am very pleased by how far I have come in two years. Lenae has been the perfect teacher. Lessons are relaxed and without pressure, and she moves at a pace that makes sense for me. She is ALWAYS pleasant and supportive.
After just a few lessons, my singing has improved and I can play simples songs on the keyboard.
John is very knowledgeable about music and made me feel comfortable starting voice lessons for the first time. Highly recommended.
Emily has outstanding preparation to teach voice. I was her high school and undergraduate voice teacher, so I can attest to her having excellent singing technique herself, to her having undergraduate coursework in the art and science of teaching voice, and to her having considerable knowledge of performing to share with her students.
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 had an instant connection with Christie the day I met and interviewed her for voice lessons. Her love of and enthusiasm for music is apparent in every sentence she speaks -- she truly motivates her listener! The voice lessons were tailored perfectly to us and we added piano lessons a few months later.
Stanley has been my voice teacher for several years now. He's totally engaged and attentive, hears every subtlety (good and bad) and is very patient with a poor student like me. I recommend him to everyone looking for a teacher.
"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
Tom and I have known each other for years. Almost two decades actually! We performed together with the NEC production of Midsummer Night's Dream. Tom as Oberon and I as the changeling boy. I believe I was around eight years old. I am now twenty-eight. Later in my growing childhood career I began taking voice lessons with Tom at his home in Arlington, learning all of the intricate details of becoming a professional in musical theatre and opera from vocal range and strength to stage personality. Tom coached me to become the third spirit in Mozart's, The Magic Flute, performed by Boston Lyric Opera. This was my first major role with a professional company. I continued to work and study under Tom for many years, and I continued to perform with well known companies and stars throughout this time. He is a true friend and great teacher who helped me live up to my potential.
Just started doing a few lessons for guitar but have plans to do singing lessons as well. He is versatile and flexible and is working on what I need for the goals I have. Great guy and worth the money so far.
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!
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!
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.
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. :)
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!
It was great to meet Christyn. She is very sweet and puts you at ease. I am looking forward to a continued working relationship.
