I am a woman in my 40s with very little formal vocal training. I sing very part time in a cover band (mostly 80s & 90s rock). I have had weekly half-hour singing lessons with Arlys for the past year. In just the first few months, I experienced a dramatic transformation in my voice and confidence. I have learned how to warm-up my voice, stand and breathe correctly, form vowel sounds to enhance pitch and tone, transition more easily through chest and head voice, and added at least 4 notes to the upper end of my performance range. Over time, my skills increased to the point where our lessons focus on "tweaks" to the songs I will be performing. Arlys strengths are her knowledge of how anatomy affects the voice, her ability to explain techniques in a variety of ways (so that at least one of them clicks for me), a prodigious sense of humor, flexibility, and a passion for both teaching and her own continuous learning. Arlys is delightful, and I wholeheartedly recommend her for anyone who wishes to sing better, especially shy singers, young people, and those who need to know why or how something works.
I have only been taking the lessons for less than two months, but I absolutely love them! Jim is so clear in the teachings, patient, and encouraging. He is also very flexible in class timings and easily offers alternatives if one class needs to get cancelled or rescheduled. I was very nervous when I first started the classes (being almost 30 and never have had music lessons!), but Jim made everything seem so simple and achievable. He is a great instructor!
I am a 34-year old and taking piano lessons for the very first time. Jess is professional, incredibly knowledgable and the easiest person in the world to sit beside and learn from. She is not intimidating or too technical for a beginner to understand and injects a lot of humor, historical music facts and laughter into her lessons. She's incredibly flexible and I have really been enjoying my time with her.
My two sons both studied with Shulamit over the course of five years. As a teacher, Shulamit was patient, yet motivating. She has a lively personality that both of my sons responded to. She remained true to her training and philosophy of teaching, yet was flexible when my son's interest was veering away from classical music. Shulamit knew that she was not going to become a different teacher, but she incorporated some popular music into his lessons to try to meet him where he was. As the mother of the student, I have always enjoyed my contact with Shulamit and have felt privileged to be audience to her magnificent playing.
Mike is very thorough making sure he picks lessons and songs that meet his students tastes and skill level. Mike is patient with his students taking time to review a lick as many times as needed. He is also willing to work on songs chosen by his students. He is price is affordable and he is reliable, rarely missing or rescheduling a lesson.
When my daughter Cady was 9 years old she started taking lessons from Bruce at a music store near our home. Unfortunately, the music store went out of business after about 8 months of lessons. Cady decided to take violin through her school. After two years of violin lessons Cady wanted to resume guitar lessons. Bruce was so good with her the first time around that I decided to call him. She was very shy at first but Bruce is so good with her that she warmed up to him rather quickly. Having a great teacher like Bruce makes lessons fun for Cady. He's very patient with her and makes sure that she understands each lesson. When Cady had a special request of learning some Christmas songs Bruce emailed the music to me so that I could print it for her. He has been coming to our home once a week now for about 6 months. His prices per lesson are very reasonable. He's always a little early (which is really on time) and he's very accommodating with our schedule changes. I highly recommend Bruce for guitar lessons!
My 11 year old son has been taking piano lessons with Carolyn for almost 3 years. Carolyn is an absolutely a wonderful teacher. She hand picks all the music so it suits the student's level and interests. It is very motivating to my son because he has a learning disability with how he processes information. Carolyn helps him understand how to read music by playing music computer games and board games which keeps him interested in playing the piano. Since taking piano lessons with Carolyn my son's confidence has soared and he can't wait to attend his next lesson. Carolyn has a unique gift for teaching children how to play the piano and I would recommend her as a piano teacher to anyone. She is the best!!
9 1/2 years and two children ago, my husband gave me piano lessons for Christmas. Sara was an awesome teacher for a beginner adult student. She understood that I had family priorities, but really wanted to learn. Slowly, ever so slowly, I was able to play basic songs! However, over time, and with added attention needed for my small ones, my lessons began to suffer. Soon I was no longer able to practice, so I gave my lesson time to my kiddos. For the last 4 (maybe 5?) years she has been teaching my daughters. The girls have VERY different approaches to music, and Sara has been able to keep them both interested & engaged with personalized music choices, reward challenges and just by being REALLY REALLY good with kids. She makes them feel at ease, easily redirects wandering brains, and makes it super fun. They end up learning & getting better every week (even though they don't practice as much as they should)! She has even been teaching a short lesson to our 5yo, who is eager to be like her big sisters! This past spring they played in their first piano recital. It boosted their confidence & made them want to try different, more difficult pieces. I cannot recommend Sara Diedrich & St Paul Music Lessons enough! Smart, talented, GREAT with kids, THIS is the place for easy going but thorough and thoughtful lessons that will have you looking forward to learning! Thanks, Sara, for being you!!!
My 7 yr old son and I have been learning from Jeff for 4 months now. I can definitely say he is very good at what he does and is also very patient with beginners like us ( 40 year old & the other 7:) He has been playing for over 20 years and so knows his stuff. He is constantly trying to find ways to help us understand and learn things more easily. I have a traveling job and have had to reschedule a few times and he has always accommodated that. I strongly recommend Jeff for lessons, no matter what you sort of guitar lessons you are looking for.
This is my children's third school year attending instrumental music lessons with Dr. Lamb and we are more than satisfied with the quality of Dr. Lamb's instruction. My children are learning how to read music and I can see how proud they are of their learning. Dr. Lamb offers extensive knowledge and is an excellent instructor who wants nothing more than to inspire children to explore their musical abilities.
Andrew works with me to help improve the support for my voice and improve the quality of my sound. Our lessons are usually at the Christ the King Lutheran Church and last about a half hour. Andrew impresses me with his extensive knowledge of the workings of the voice and how he uses that knowledge to determine exercises that help enhance the sound. In the short amount of time spent with Andrew I feel more knowledgeable about my instrument which, in addition to the exercises, has brought my singing to a higher level than before I started the lessons. The techniques that I have learned from Andrew will stay with me for a lifetime as I continue to learn and improve.
My daughters love piano and voice lessons with Michael Kullik
my experience with piano lessons with Ms Diane are fun and amazing...
Jonathan is an excellent musician/performer and an excellent music instructor. He designs my guitar lessons to fits my needs as a K-5 elementary music specialist in the public schools. He is patient and kind while maintaining high expectations. I would recommend Jonathan Ehresmann to anyone looking for a high quality music lesson experience.
Mike is supportive and professional. He has introduced my daughter to many different types of piano music and helped her continue to love music by teaching to her strengths and not putting unnecessary pressure on her.
Mark helped our grandson with pre-algebra and was very nurturing and patient while teaching concepts. Nick really enjoyed his sessions with Mark and gained so much confidence. I believe the skills talked about carried thru in his other subjects as well. Mark is excellent!!
My daughter has taken vocal lessons from TC Vocal Arts for 2 years. Within a month of starting lessons, she had noticeable vocal growth. Over time she has expanded her range almost a full octave, as well as improving intonation and sight reading. Angela has been very supportive, including attending some of my daughter's other vocal performances and has been easy to work with for scheduling.
Excellent teaching! I've had such a great experience, unfortunately I have to discontinue lessons for a bit. Once I am ready to take vocal lessons again I will surely do them through Lundstrum and Susan!
Jessica has been teaching my son for the past month. She has a good rapport with him, explains what to do and how to do it simply and well. She provides provides and overview to verify he's mastered something before advancing to the next item. In addition she's encouraged him to succeed and challenge himself. He's been enjoying piano lessons and learning skills to improve both his knowledge and his skill.
Carol is an amazing person as she is a piano teacher. I had so much fun learning from her. We would go over right after school on a weekday, and she didn't have to feed us, but she is such a kind and caring person. We would get a soda, sandwich and a cut up apple. My brother and I, he also took lessons, would always tall about how amazing her sandwiches were, and we could never replicate the taste. I had so much fun going to piano recitals that she invited us to. My brother and I did a piece of music that made us get up and switch spots and continue playing after moving. So much fun! Unfortunately, school became to much aswell as work and I had to drop piano, but if I continued I know that Carol Svanoe would still be my teacher and my dearest friend.
Great experience. She tailored her lessons to the learning style and strengths of the individual student. Nicely done, genuinely interested in her students.
