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 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.

Piano lessons: Knows music/piano/techniques. Informal setting, which I love. But also: very professional approach; is meeting my goals and suggesting others; organized; supportive; appropriately, constructively critical. Financial arrangements clearly spelled out, easy to do online.

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.

Josh does a great job teaching young adults and kids guitar lessons, and brings a passionate appreciation for all types of music to the lessons. Whether just beginning, or looking to improve your skills, Josh can help anyone improve their talents and broaden their musical horizon. Definitely would recommend Josh as a guitar instructor.

Carolyn Reisinger teaches two of my children and does a wonderful job. My kids are loving piano lessons and learning fast! She is very professional on what she does, still a very kind and loving teacher. I would recommend her over and over again!

I frequently take my grandchildren to their music lessons with Dr Barbara Lamb. Dr Lamb has a vast knowledge of music and of different instruments. My grandson has improved greatly under Dr Lamb’s tutelage, both as a school teacher and leader of The Fabulous Fiddlers through fourth grade and as a private teacher. He is now able to read music in both treble and bass clefs and the tone when he plays has improved greatly. She includes vocabulary slowly, as in the musical signs and terms for tempo, etc. She gently guides him into making improvements in his stroking and incorporates interesting bits of information about the music he is playing. When it is obvious he hasn’t practiced enough she doesn’t chide but instead tells him how and why the music would sound better if he were able to spend more time playing. He enjoys the fact that in addition to the standard teaching books she will coach him on music he brings in, Star Wars themes in particular. When he brought in his recorder and played a piece for her she complimented his playing and also gave hints on fingering and breath technique. She is very patient and when my grandson starts rambling about other things she listens and gently guides him back to the topic. She instilled a love of music in both children and I enjoy hearing them sing when they are in the shower. My grandson says he would give Dr Lamb a 5-star rating, adding that she is nice, patient and she knows a lot. He was very disappointed when she left his school and the Fabulous Fiddlers program was dropped. It had taught him discipline and had prompted him to work harder on improving his cello skills. He is looking forward to continuing cello as he moves on to middle school. My granddaughter has had to drop lessons temporarily due to school responsibilities but she also enjoyed her lessons and progressed well. She hopes to be able to continue guitar lessons in the future.

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.

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.

John quickly won over my son with his great personality and fun teaching style. I am impressed by how quickly Blake has improved in such a short amount of time. It's fun to see how much he looks forward to his weekly lessons. Thanks John!

My teenage daughter began voice lessons 2 years ago and almost immediately saw improvement with tone, breath control and musicality. She has gained almost an octave in her range. Angela has supported her outside of lessons by attending her school vocal events and has been very encouraging.

My voice teacher at Lundstrum Performing Arts was Kathleen Bloom. I'm a musical theatre performer and she has years of experience in that industry as a performer herself. She has so much knowledge of the industry and of musical theatre! She customized each lesson to which type of music I was singing that day and how my voice was feeling. I grew as a singer and actor working with her. I only stopped taking lessons with her because I moved to a different state :( I have yet to be able to find a teacher to match her abilities and knowledge yet.

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!!

Daniel spends time in developing fundamental skills that will help the student play harder pieces. He is very patient, detailed, and methodical with his homework assignments. Lessons nonetheless are fun, specially when he gets his hysterical moments. He is a teacher that would leave you with a big smile and that would care about you as a student.

David has been a wonderful violin instructor and mentor to our son. David has provided private lessons and summer camp opportunities that have been outstanding. Our son's technique and musicality increased due to David's instruction. Most importantly, our son's love of music has deepened under David's guidance.

Mary came to my house to instruct me playing the violin. She came for 5 lessons as I just wanted a basis to start from. Mary was reliable and communicated when different arrangements were necessary. I learned a lot in my short time with Mary and feel confident I am headed in the right direction now.

We've only had 2 lessons with Scott so far, but the kids get SO excited for him to come! They count down the days to their next piano lesson, so he is definitely doing something right!
