I am one of Davids students and I can tell you he is an excellent music teacher as well as producer and vocal coach. I started my piano lessons with David and within 3 or so months I was already playing full songs. Currently I am recording an album project at Posterity Studios with David as my producer/engineer and vocal coach. I can tell you that so far what has been pre-produced is very impressive and I am enjoying the direction the album is taking. Not only am I having David provide some of the music, but I also have live instrumentation being recorded as well....guitars, drums, and bass along with my background vocalist. So if you are looking to take lessons for piano or for vocal lessons or plan on cutting an album, Posterity Studios is the place to go. I am pleased with the lessons and also with the work David is doing on my album project.
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!
Annie was absolutely amazing. First of all, I'm not the most confident when it comes to singing, I enjoy singing, and I write songs, but I often feel like I couldn't deliver when it comes to singing them. That's when I started looking into getting some voice lessons to help with my technique and hopefully unlock a few things! Annie showed up right on time for our first meeting with a free consultation- (awesome! who gets free stuff nowadays in New York?). She asked me what I wanted to achieve and asked me to show her my songs (in which I was nervous about but got over it quickly because she was super open minded about it). She pointed out the good things I did in the recordings and then gave me some pointers on the parts I could work on further with her, perfect and yes please. We've had 3 lessons so far and worked on 2 songs to keep the lessons exciting. She gave me a few exercises to do on my own, helped with breathing techniques, and even advised on some dietary factors that would help keep my voice healthy. I highly recommend her if you are looking for someone who cares about your progress, listens, is non-judgmental (my biggest need for my shyness), and has a whole lot of knowledge to give!
So far we’ve had a handful of singing lessons and my daughter loves the teacher.
Anette is the absolute best vocal teacher i have ever worked with. Not only has she found a way to help me learn techniques that i thought were way out of my reach, I have seen her adapt her teaching style in a heart beat to people who have completely different learning styles (I am very analytical and need every muscle and movement explained in details to be ale to reproduce something) to me while participating in group classes. I do both individual and group classes with Anette (i think it's amazing to get a chance to learn from how other people learn). Anette has improved my ability to sing Rock (including screams) and Blues but we sometimes visited genres as diverse as Baroque or dove deep into specific singers I admire and wanted to emulate. Above all, the depth of Anette's knowledge and the breath of her technique means she was able to take me far beyond my technical limitations while teaching me how to keep my instrument healthy and functional for the long term. Whatever your level from absolute beginner to professional, I am sure oyu will learn something from Anette.
I've had five lessons with LaJuan over the summer. I liked it so much my husband and daughter also took lessons! LaJuan is very professional and has worked with our hectic schedule. She strikes a balance between working with our limitations and pushing us to do better. I like how at the end of my five sessions, I know my range, what music soothes my voice and had my first recording. We will certainly take more lessons as singing is a never ending journey. Try her services, you'll love it too!
Tim Russell was truly helpful in teaching me how to sing, and his lessons were always very enjoyable. He is really good at making you feel comfortable in his classes. He understands how to enable a person reach their maximum singing potential. As a beginner, I had no previous training, but he was extremely patient with me and made me feel more comfortable with my singing voice. As our lessons went on, he incorporated more vocal exercises in order to help me achieve new areas with my voice. He was very effective at adapting his coaching while I got better at singing. My voice literally transformed in ways that I had previously thought impossible. I literally went from receiving dirty looks to applause when I sang! All this was done with just 16 lessons with Mr. Russell, and I am eternally grateful. He truly loves his job and is both passionate and knowledgeable about his field, and I strongly recommend him as a vocal coach.
Viky is very friendly and a great teacher for both piano and singing. I highly recommend her.
Dr. McCann is not only an incredibly knowledgeable individual but is also an excellent educator. She knows how to approach problems from different angles to achieve the best results from her students. I work with her on a regular basis and can say that she always provides quality suggestions and tools to improve technique and interpretation. I highly recommend her for both piano and vocal training.
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!!
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.
Not only is Rebecca Rapoport Cole an outstanding piano and voice educator (and performer herself), she sets herself apart from other teachers because of the way she truly cares about her students and invests in both their artistic and personal growth. She became a mentor and role model for so many of her students, and for this I highly recommend her.
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 have struggled for years to find a teacher who could tackle all my weaknesses and undo my bad habits. I have been singing for 20 years and found out that I was lacking technique in 2009! To hear that from a master teacher was really painful but it was a wake up call. So I kept looking for someone who could help me, really help me with my technique. Lisa was a God send (I just wish I met her sooner!). She was very quick to pick up on all my bad habits and help me not only work on them but communicate with me in a way that made sense to me to undo them. I have been through lots of voice teaches in the last 20 years and I can finally say Lisa has been one of the very few in all my years of singing who has really been able to make a difference in my singing. P.S. She's also extremely approachable, makes you feel like a pro but still will push you when you need it. And she's really funny!!!
In just a few short months I can't believe how much I've learned from Jessica. My technique has improved; my tone in the upper part of my range has improved; how to keep my tongue from getting in the way / impeding the sound; so many aspects of singing. When I started my lessons I was particularly concerned that I might be doing something that was tiring my voice and causing it to lose volume. Jessica's knowledge of and ability to demonstrate proper singing technique helped me through that concern and I know I am a "healthier" singer now. Knowledge and ability aside, her approach is also very patient and very encouraging. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in improving their technique, tone, range, artistic ability, etc.
Michael Kelly really helped me free-up my voice and now I can sing in a variety of styles much more easily! He’s also really kind and supportive and I feel so much more confident as a performer thanks to him.
Will, a brilliant singer and performer, is a very knowledgeable, encouraging and generous teacher. He was very respectful of my time, responsive to my vocal concerns and adjusted very well to changes in my work schedule. When he had to be out of town singing for an extended period of time, he provided me with an interim voice teacher who he knew well and trusted. I recommend him without reservation.
