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.
I have been taking lessons from Sam for about two months now. I am an adult who is coming to vocal training with little experience in singing other than some high school chorus and performances. And I am so glad I did! Sam was immediately welcoming, encouraging, and warm. He is clearly a wonderful person and it shows right away. But maybe more importantly, he is an extremely talented singer, performer and instructor. I really wanted an experienced and sophisticated teacher who will not just encourage me but teach me, push me, and help me to advance and become an accomplished performer. Sam has a great reputation and teaches many advanced, even famous singers but he is also great for beginners. He teaches you not just singing technique but how to develop as a musician both technically and emotionally. Before starting with Sam, I took a few lessons with others who start you off the bat with sheet music and just singing. That doesn't work in my view. Singing is difficult (more difficult than I expected actually) and to progress you have to understand theory, rhythm, timing and phrasing. Sam starts you with these kinds of lessons so that when you start singing you understand the music itself, not just technique. In short, you won't find a better teacher or person than Sam so if you are interested in progressing either as a beginner or an experienced singer, please check him out. You won't be disappointed.
Don is very professional yet friendly. My daughter is currently taking piano lessons from him. Very happy with his lessons.
I came to Alyssa as a complete beginner with no formal vocal training. My background with guitar and clarinet as well as some study of music theory in high school were helpful, but Alyssa broke things down simply and gave me a very approachable way to learn how to sing. More than anything, Alyssa taught me in a few short lessons how to be confident in my own voice. I know that what I hear on a recording is not what I hear in my head, but I also know the reasons for that and how to get a good tone out of my head and to people's ears. I would stick with Alyssa were it not for my job-related move. I feel I will be hard pressed to find a vocal instructor as capable and approachable as her after my move.
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 am so glad I found 4Singers Voice Lessons with Tracy Hamlin. I was in need of some vocal coaching for an audition, with limited time to prepare. Tracy managed to help me work through both songs with ease. She helped me feel completely prepared and more confident than when I first started lessons with her. She is a Godsend and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn or improve their vocal skills.
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.
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.
As a non native English speaker I found myself hundreds (if not thousands) of times avoiding to use words I did not know how to pronounce or being judged because of my accent. In some way I was pulling myself back and I needed to step forward and "find my voice". I found a new strength and freedom in my voice practices with Alexandra and also could sing! Her lessons are amazing, she does not only work with your voice but with your whole person; she uses amazing techniques to release the tension in your body so you can project your voice with power and relaxation and also connect to your emotions. She fluently leverages work and compassion for the students and is always glad to offer different options to help you to accomplish each exercise successfully according to your own pace and ability. Working with Alexandra will empower you to find your best with professionalism, love and happiness. Thank you Alexandra!
Carol is a wonderful voice teacher full of encouragement and wisdom. She has worked with me on specific goals and has implemented her knowledge and experience to help me attain my goals. Carol is extremely personable and a joy to work with. I know she has helped many succeed in whatever facet they needed and I highly recommend her to other people seeking voice lessons!
Vicky has been a great fit for our son. He is almost 13, but with the deep voice of a 21-year old. Being autistic, proper singing is not only fun, but also an integral part of breathing and speech for him. Vicky has been knowledgeable and very patient!
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...?
Dr. Valente is extremely professional, accomplished, knowledgable and trustworthy. We hired Dr. Valente as our teenage son's voice coach, and while being introduced to various genres of music, he learned the mechanics of singing.
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.
Devin Toma is a patient and thorough vocal instructor. He understands the science of singing, and communicates clearly what he needs the student to do. He introduces one new concept at a time and assures that it is mastered before he moves on. He is also experienced with many vocal styles and aware of current trends in the music world. My son is really enjoying his voice lessons, and is progressing well.
