I havent been taking lessons for that long, but I can already tell that my singing voice has improved tremendously since my initial lesson. My voice now has a lot more power than it has ever had before. The lessons are very informative, educational, and a lot of fun! Since Patrick Wickham is a voice physiologist, he knows all about the voice and what should be happening in your throat/back/abdomen to make certain sounds. I enjoy hearing about how everything works and what exercises to do to work certain muscles and things to improve my breathing, singing etc. I am very impressed with my experience and the service at WVS. Before every lesson I am offered tea, coffee, and water. Patrick Wickham makes every lesson slightly different so that we can work on different aspects of singing. The lessons are also catered to the individual so that you get the best experience and also the best techniques that will work for you. The lessons are recorded and sent to you after the lesson. That way, you can practice at home and you know what you need to work on. Just like everything else, you have to practice if you want to get better and want to see the results you desire. Patrick Wickham even sends you (via email) exercises to do to practice using the various muscles and things you use while singing. If you ever have any questions about anything from a clarification of something in the lesson, or a question about your performing career, Patrick Wickham is always there is help you in any way he can. Since he has an incredible amount of experience in performing, he can give great and reliable advice to any of your questions or concerns. I have had an outstanding experience so far and I cant wait to see how much I will improve in the future! Thank you Patrick Wickham!
David an amazingly skillful and inspiring teacher. I never imagined I would enjoy singing lessons this much. And he is just an all around great guy.
I have never taken singing lessons before. With just a couple of lessons with Mara I have noticed a tremendous change in my vocals. I am able to reach notes that I did not know existed for me, I am in better control of my breathing, my phrasing is better and overall became more confident in my singing ability. Thanks Mara!
Rae de la Cretaz is a magician! I walked into my first lesson with her seven short months ago, after many years of longing to take singing lessons and a year of procrastinating. She put me right at ease, and I got to experience her incredible store of knowledge, energy and outright passion for the human voice. When I came in, I had what I described as a "pleasant" voice, no better, no worse. I had been singing (mostly to myself) for my entire life, and for the last 18 years with a choir. The change in this short amount of time still surprises me. Sometimes when I sing during my lesson, I hardly recognize that it's me singing. There's a richness that I would have admired in others, but never thought would be possible for me. People whose opinions I respect have come forward and remarked favorably about my voice, something I didn't experience before. In the short time that I've been taking lessons with Rae, I've learned so much, and look forward to coming to each lesson. She is a treasure!
I have not been working with Pamela for long, so ask me again in a couple of months and I'll probably change to 5 stars! So far I enjoy my lessons and the exercises we do have already expanded my range. My high E used to be just a squeak but now I can really sing it after only a few lessons, and I even feel more confident with my lower range - something that has always been a struggle. I look forward to seeing what is in store with her guidance. I fully recommend Miss Pamela!
Annie is a wondeful teacher. At first when I decided to take vocal lessons I was afraid that I will not feel comfortable to sing infront of someone who is new. Annie made me so comfortable to sing infront of anyone and not feel shy about it at all. What I like about her too is that she tries to introduce me to new styles of music in order to improve my voice and breathing techniques. She also gives good advices that helps a lot!
So far we’ve had a handful of singing lessons and my daughter loves the teacher.
Taking singing lessons was really going over an edge for me. It was something "other" people did. I had put it off for decades because I didn't want to appear silly. It was just wishful thinking; part of my secret self. I couldn't have been in better hands with Barbara. She met me exactly where I was at and made me feel comfortable. I had wished to sing one song well. Working with Barbara turns out to be more than that. It's more about expression, finding my voice, playfulness and feeling the song. It's really a growth experience.
I have been taking private singing lessons with Christine for about two years. During this time her coaching has opened up my voice both technically and in terms of emotional expression. We have worked together on a range of classical music, and she is a very hands-on, positive but also exacting teacher. In addition to helping build my repertoire and improve my technique, she also gives me advice about the performance business. I would recommend her 100% to anyone who loves to sing and wants to work on their technique and performance.
Anette gave voice lessons to my 11 year old daughter. She was knowledgable, patient, and fun. She worked on songs that my daughter wanted to sing. She was understanding about school schedules. And it was great to be able to hear the entire lesson through dropbox.
Dave is an amazing instructor! He truly cares about his students. Keep an open mind when coming to his lessons, because I can assure you that his methods are to ensure that you enhance musically, but with correct techniques. Dave is patient and honest. He not only wants to see his students do well and improve in their lessons, but he also cares about his student's well-being. I am happy that I found Dave on thumbtack, by far the best decision, I have ever made. I have improved greatly within the year, and I know I'll continue.
Mary is awesome! She has so much experience and knowledge, and you really feel in good hands working with her. Gives great feedback and I love lessons with her!
My 6yr old just had his first lesson with Lenny and is very excited for the next one. Lenny was very patient and relatable. We were very pleased!
As I am away at College currently, and not able to take lessons in person, mandi is advising me on exercises I can do to improve my breathing and support, as well as the placing of my voice and improving my ability to sing on pitch. She has been very kind and patient, as well as immediately responsive to my questions. I look forward to meeting her in person when I am home from College and to taking lessons in person. I would recommend her to any student who is looking for a voice teacher."
I've been taking weekly lessons with Corinn for about 7/8 weeks and cannot believe the improvement. I feel so much more prepared and confident for my upcoming auditions. I can honestly say that I have never had a voice teacher as knowledgeable and as committed to my success as Corinn is. I can't thank you enough Corinn!!
I am writing this review as a Colleague. While I have not taken lessons with Candice I know as a seasoned Professional Musician and Teacher myself what makes excellence: and excellence is what Candice's Music Studio offers. Candice is Passionate, Crafted at her Art, and an Excellent Leader and Team Player. It takes a lot more than a Degree in Music to be a great Teacher. You have to have Talent,Heart as well as intellect, instinct and: a desire to constantly be expanding your own horizons while lifting those up around you. Candice has those things in spades. Professionally, I refer Students and Professionals to Voice Studios all the time especially in NY. I would not hesitate to send my own Students to Candice's Music Studio. Very Best - Jen M Vanella Vocal Specialist, Artist, Educator, & Advocate
I have been fortunate to have Marina as my voice coach for over a year since I started our voice lessons. Marina’s voice lessons have been invaluable in developing my singing skills. She is aware of a variety of approaches to teaching vocal and is continuously broadening her pedagogy while finding the best-practice suited for a particular lesson with a student. The voice and breathing exercises she taught me have made my vocal development consistent and strong. Our classes are always well informative, developmentally structured, productive, and very enjoyable. Not only Marina is a professional and talented singer herself with a long history of professional knowledge and experience, but she also possesses an exceptional ability to share her talent with students and to find a personalized way that would help them develop their own singing skills.
My son and daughter have been taking lessons at the Piano Workshop of Chester with Sonia for the past few years and they continue to make great progress!
We are VERY happy with Mark Fabian. He has been tutoring my 13yr old son for the past month and we find him to be patient, very knowledgeable about guitars and personable. Recently Mark had to reschedule a lesson and he did not have my phone number handy so he physically drove to my home and taped a message on the door hours prior to the lesson. My son is learning how to play the guitar and he looks forward to lessons with Mr. Fabian. We highly recommend him!!!
Amazing vocal teacher! Nicky is a great vocal teacher who is kind and patient. She has been working with my 11 year daughter for about 3 years. Nicky makes the extra effort to use age appropriate songs and part of the lesson includes music theory. Win win! My daughter can’t commit to the practice time necessary with an instrument, so we went with vocal lessons with Nicky. With singing she can practice any time and anywhere. Nicky has been able to bring out some beautiful notes, making this mom very proud. Can’t beat the price - she comes to our home and is a very accommodating with our crazy schedule. Again she is an AMAZING vocal teacher!!
For the past year, I've been Mariah Kaplan's singing teacher. She came to me with a strong background, but people can always get better. She truly loves singing and teaching. She cares about doing everything right, not just for herself, but for what she can give to her students. She sees each student as an individual, with distinctive needs, goals, and problems. She genuinely likes her students. When they work hard, she's their biggest supporter. When they have problems, she'll use every resource she can find to help them. She never settles for good enough. She knows they can do better, and if that means she has to do better, she figures out how to do that. It's exciting to work with a student like Mariah Kaplan, and I know she passes the excitement and joy that she brings to her own lessons on to her students. Anyone would be lucky to work with Mariah Kaplan.
