I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.
Debbie is a beautiful soul who is very knowledgeable about music. She meets you where you are and works with you to get you where you want to be. I'm excited to continue my lessons with Debbie and to learn as much as possible about singing and music.
Tona is an excellent voice teacher -- my son's range has expanded an octave in just 5 lessons and he is singing with much more confidence. The price is reasonable.
Getting singing lessons from Sam has been great. I've been going for 2 months now. And what I like about Sam is that he takes you step by step. He teaches you amazing breathing techniques and how to be confident in yourself. I've learned so much in these 2 months. I really thank him for giving me great tips to reaching those high and low notes. My voice is changing and I can really feel the difference.
Don was fantastic. I'm so excited to continue my violin and piano lessons! I definitely recommend him...he obviously has a lot of knowledge to offer his clients.
Nicole is a wonderful teacher. I had never had singing lessons before but she made me feel totally at ease. Her teaching method is totally individualized and I learn something new every week. She is very encouraging, has a broad knowledge of many different styles of music and enjoys exploring these with her students. Nicole has a very pleasant manner, a sense of humor and lessons are fun!
I swear by 4Singers Voice Coaching. I use it before performances and recently I lost my voice a few days before a huge show and I am absolutely positive that 4Singers Voice Coaching helped to prepare me for that show and even as hoarse as I was I made it through the hour long performance. The warm-up's and techniques are a must if you really want to sing properly and Tracy is the only person I'd trust to teach me how to use my singing voice correctly.
Maddie is without a doubt the best vocal teacher you will come across. After only a few months of lessons, I was singing like a new person. I feel confident that I have gotten top notch training and have the confidence I need to be successful in the musical theatre industry. I came in with some vocal issues (straining, fatigue and bad habits) and Maddie gave me tricks to make sure I was singing healthily and in a way that I could sustain. Not the mention she is the sweetest, kindest person you'll meet. I am forever greatful for Maddie and the tools she has given me. If you are looking for a vocal teacher, you can't find someone better than Maddie.
My daughter is loving her piano lessons with Annie! She is so kind and patient with her.
Melissa is a skilled and highly professional instructor. She makes lessons for the kids playful but also structured.
Singing in church choirs has been a wonderful outlet and enabled me to find a community as I moved every few years to different parts of the globe. Finally putting down roots, I wanted to find a voice coach who would help me improve breath control, strengthen the range of my voice, and improve the overall quality of my singing. I am blessed to have found Keely Bosworth Borland, a gifted soprano and performer. Keely has been the perfect coach for me. She has a unique ability to both nurture and push me. Keely has identified and helped me work on my breath control. She has used a wide variety of music to foster my confidence while stretching my vocal range. Her lessons include a selection of vocal warm-ups and breathing exercises each week that compliment the music we sing. I have found that recording her lessons and rehearsing them between lessons to be of great help. I highly recommend Keely to anyone looking for a voice coach from the novice to the serious performer.
Wonderful, very engaging. Have been Been doing lessons with Orla for over two months. She has taught me so much. I look forward to a long relationship and to continue to grow with her experience and guidance.
EXCELLENT VOICE TEACHER: Ive been studying with James McCully for almost a year and have seen a vast improvement in my vocal technique. Im a lawyer by trade, but Ive always wanted to develop my singing voice so I started lessons in my 30s. Ive had a couple of voice teachers in the past, and while they helped me develop my voice, James is taking me to a whole new level. Through my study with James, I can more easily access my top notes -- a must for tenors -- and I am developing strength and ring. I also feel more confident with my singing due to his caring teaching style and his ability to readily address technical issues. His selection of repertoire is thoughtful and reflects a deep understanding and love of music as well as what would work for auditions. Hes also a wonderful piano player, so you have the benefit of a great voice teacher and a skilled accompanist. I always look forward to lessons with James, and I would highly recommend him to any student who is looking to improve his or her technique in a supportive environment.
I am currently taking lessons with Ms. Carol Westcott and I could not be more thrilled. The setting of the studio is not only comfortable but welcoming, while at the same time her expertise and knowledge make it so easy for me to trust her judgment. She has a very technical way of teaching; when something goes askew in my voice, she tells me exactly what happened, and even has a 3-D laminated model of the larynx and vocal cords to show me what happens when I sing low, high and in between. On the other hand, she knows my voice so well that she can tell me exactly what to do based on my unique voice in order to produce a certain sound or tone. She has helped me develop my opera, chest mix, chest register, head register, low, middle, and high belt, as well as different styles of music, such as country, pop, alternative and musical theater. ONE LAST THING: I arrived at my first lesson not knowing a THING about sheet music...I had based my learning on sound for my whole life, so I couldn't read notes, keys or symbols. She taught me how to do just that. Thank you, Ms. Carol!
Marc is such a delight to work with. He is an excellent piano teacher, patient with the kids, teaches them not only how to play but the music theory and historical context. He is super organized and helpful when it comes to scheduling too. So glad we found Marc!
Vicki is a patient teacher and can adapt to different styles depending on your child or adult. She can teach at any level and even can add voice lessons. My son has never been happier!
I've been Brittany's student for the past year and it has been an incredible experience. She's very fun to work with and she's extremely knowledgeable about singing. I can now sing with confidence and ease and I can belt properly.
Great response time. First lesson went great! Will be returning...?
Michelle is providing voice lessons for my daughter and it has been a really positive experience. In just a little over a month my daughter already feels like she has learned a great deal and is more confident in her abilities.
Michael has been teaching my kids piano and guitar. He is patient and really connects with them. He teaches them current music to keep them interested but he also teaches theory and mechanics. Great experience for my kids.
Rana was always very professional, and her knowledge and expertise of the content area of vocal training and techniques were quite evident in her instructions. She came adequately prepared for every class and personalized the lessons to suit my very specific needs. She also offered flexibility in her scheduling to allow me to take classes with her despite my tight schedule. I highly recommend Rana Berryman for vocal lessons and may continue classes should schedules permit.
