I liked the fact that Alex submitted a video quote for me, he has a very professional web site and it was easy to both pay for lessons and schedule a time for a lesson. I appreciated his teaching method which takes into account the fact that I can't read music and I have not had lessons before.

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 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 purchased a series of refresher lessons from Allured Music Studio and Jess went above and beyond to deliver a nice gift certificate as the lessons were a birthday gift. My wife has not started her lessons yet, but we are hopeful that Jess' initial steps are indicative of her teaching.

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.

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 son, Austin, has been going to piano lessons for over 10 years. We recently switched to Reisinger and are very pleased with the results! Carolyn has taught my son quite a bit in just 6 months and is helping him get ready for college! I would recommend her for any level of lessons.

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.

John has helped me take my drumming to the next level. When I started lessons I was fairly new to the drum set and did not know how to read music. Over the past two years he has completely transformed me from a beginner to a gigging musician. John is patient, laid back and very knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him to drummers of all skill levels.

Nicki has been giving my daughter beginner flute lessons for 3 months. Nicki is patient with my daughter and is able to relate to her age (8 years old) and give her help holding the flute and reading music. Nicki is a delightful instructor and I have been very impressed at the progress my daughter has made in a short time. I am also taking piano lessons from Nicki after my daughter's lesson to brush up on what I learned as a child. Wonderful, friendly lessons that are so much fun!

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 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.

I've been taking lessons with Coreen for about a month now, and they have been outstanding. I'm in my early 30s and am very new to the piano. She teaches in a way that is fun and effective. Coreen has been very helpful in teaching me how to practice and study between sessions. I've seen my ability increase far more than expected since working with her. As a bonus, she has a beautiful grand piano that I look forward to playing on every week!

Our daughter had private voice lessons with Sue for a couple of years. Although she just graduated from a performing arts high school where she had an excellent experience, she really 'found her voice' with Sue. She was given a challenging and varied repertoire, had many performance opportunities, and received much positive encouragement and guidance. She was a wonderful coach and gave our daughter some much-needed self-confidence, both on and off stage!

As a college student currently studying Music Education, my piano lessons with Ms. Jessica Shao were some of my best musical memories growing up. I first started lessons with Ms. Shao as an elementary student. She showed me great patience and kindness throughout each lesson, but always encouraged me to do my best. She did a great job of keeping records of our assignments and weekly practicing in our personal journals. She also knew how to motivate young learners with recitals and small prizes! I am very grateful for Ms. Shao for the past years of piano lessons, which led me to become a piano teacher myself today. I am confident in recommending her as a piano teacher to any student who is interested in learning piano!

Ryan is terrific! He is teaching our 3 kids - ranging in age from 7-12 years old - guitar lessons and our kids are thrilled and enthusiastic about their music lessons. Ryan is phenomenal and super patient! He is a true musician and his passion shows in the way he holds his lessons. Ryan is always punctual, reliable and my husband (who had been playing guitar for nearly 30 years!!) has been extremely impressed with the progress the kids are showing week after week. Ryan is truly THE best.

My girls and I are so very grateful for Becca. She is the piano teacher and role model I wish I had as a young girl and I am so very thankful she became part of my girls' lives. My girls, ages 7 and 9, always looked forward to their visit with her each week. "Do we get to see Becca tomorrow?" They would ask over and over. When lessons came, I watched Becca as she enthusiastically engaged in each lesson and I just loved her energy, her spirit, her kindness, her patience and her method. Becca is amazing with children and she creates an environment that is friendly and inspiring. We are so sad that we had to stop lessons with her when she moved to Plymouth, but we can guarantee any children who get to take lessons with her are very blessed. She is a blessing, and we highly recommend her! Thank you so much Becca!!

I’m 27 and have never done anything musical before. I’m taking songwriting and piano lessons with Curtis. He is really good at tailoring my lessons to what I want to be doing and motivating me to keep writing and practicing. This is something I’ve thought about doing for years and it feels incredible to actually be doing it finally! He’s an awesome teacher and a great guy! Would highly recommend! 👍👍
