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.
The instructor contacted us promptly and my daughter has been taking lessons for several weeks now and she loves it. Super nice teacher. Experienced and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend her.
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!
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.
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.
Melissa is a skilled and highly professional instructor. She makes lessons for the kids playful but also structured.
My daughter is loving her piano lessons with Annie! She is so kind and patient with her.
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!
Charles is the best. Ive been taking singing lessons for 17 weeks or so and i hear a tremendous difference in the way my voice sounds. On the first day he will give you a broad overview covering his techniques. Then you can pick and choose what you would like to learn. Charles will give you simple drills that might feel a bit funny when you first try them, but if you just do what he says and practice for an hour or two per week you will magically get a little better each week because Charles knows his stuff. His knowledge comes from experience and academic papers he has read vigorously. Just do what the guy says and dont forget to practice, and i promise you will improve. People who have said I would never be a good singer have retracted their statements and admitted they were wrong after only 12 weeks!
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.
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!
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.
