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.
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 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!
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!
This was my first time taking singing lessons and I was extremely nervous , off rip he made me feel very comfertable and continues taking me to the next level in music , I have a lot of fun everytime I go and I highly recommend him for anyone ! He's so chill and awesome (:
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!
Barbara is personable and extremely professional with her singing lessons.
So far we’ve had a handful of singing lessons and my daughter loves the teacher.
As a complete novice to singing and actually pretty terrified of singing in public, Anette was the perfect fit for me. She made me feel absolutely comfortable and created a safe environment. Plus her instructions and exercises are spot on, even for someone completely new to singing. Added bonus is that her personality is super fun so we shared lots of laughs during practice. I can 100% recommend Anette.
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.
I'm really learning a lot with Viky. She has the fundamentals down and is able to teach them. I'm really enjoying the lessons
What a great learning experience! Genya is a highly skilled singing teacher who can actually make drills fun. She has a way of describing the process that can turn anyone into a singer.
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!!
Sophia is both professional and friendly. She knows exactly how to get your voice right. She’s passionate about teaching and singing, and she would make you enjoy your lessons as much as possible!
Michelle is not only a wonderful person she is a remarkable teacher. I sing with Michelle in the Schiller NJ Chorus and have private singing lessons with her. Not only is her voice glorious but her teaching style covers the many aspects of singing; anatomy, music theory, voice control/development and gentle informative critiques. She’s the best!
Corinn has taught my two daughters (13 & 15) piano and voice for the past 3 years. She is the best teacher we have had and we are thrilled that she has moved with us, by sheer luck, from London to NJ! She is extremely reliable and conscientious and is a talented and patient teacher who challenges my girls as individuals and has helped improve their skills tremendously. They look forward to their lessons with Corinn and feel as very comfortable with her. She is a very talented singer and pianist and is passing on her love of music to our daughters. We feel very lucky to have her influence in their lives.
I've taken voice lessons from a handful of teachers before Jac, and will take from no else after taking from her! Her knowledge of the voice is immensive, she understands how to teach to different learning types and she is EXPERT in many different styles of singing which I find to be very helpful as a student. I originally came to Jac for help with musical theater auditioning, but what really surprised me was the tricks and tools she knew to help you not only hear the difference in your voice but FEEL the differences too. Of course since I came to her for audition help she has not only helped me build a book of appropriate song for roles I'd be up for, but also understanding how to fill out your book with rep that is balanced.
My daughter has been taking lessons with Ms. Mariah for 9 months and she’s still excited to go each week. Ms. Mariah keeps the lessons fun while teaching her the proper piano techniques. She has a very sweet demeanor which my daughter reacts very well to. I highly recommend lessons with Ms. Mariah!
What makes Nancy special as a voice teacher is her ability to understand her student. I did not want to become a professional, I just wanted to be able to sing in my church choir and not sound completely off. It turns out that there is a lot to singing which I had no knowledge of, the most important part is being relaxed and breathing properly. With her help I am singing much better than I ever thought I could and singing with my choir with so much more confidence! I highly recommend Nancy. She is patient (with me one often has to repeat segments over and over until they come out right), she never gets upset and she knows how to encourage you when you do well. She is warm and funny and it is a pleasure to have her as a teacher and a coach.
Nick is a wonderful vocal teacher with a pleasant disposition. He has been providing me with voice lessons for more than a year. I have much improved with his help. Having someone who can bring their own vast vocal experience and musical knowledge is a huge bonus. Encouraging and very patient!
