    Great Coach
    Just started taking lessons, but Gwin is professional, skilled, kind, and a great person to work with. I trust her ability to strengthen my voice. I'd definitely recommend her to others who want to improve their singing.

    Ms. Gwin- Piano Pro!!
    Ms. Gwin is excellent and my daughter and I are happy and very fortunate to have found her for piano lessons. From day 1, she has been very accommodating, knowledgeable and passionate, which is reflected through her teaching. My daughter is only 4 years old and Ms. Gwin was able to creatively adapt concepts to meet her current level of understanding. With just 2 months of instruction, meeting once per week for 30 minutes, my daughter has already mastered playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb", as well as, some piano theory. My daughter looks forward to her weekly sessions and I am very pleased with the talent that she is so quickly developing.

    I recommend her to anyone looking to start off with singing for career or otherwise. She goes right in on the first day and helps you determine you vocal limits and helps you feel confident in your sound. She is very patient with you if you don't get it write the first time, plus the work space is beautiful. If you can't decide on a coach I recommend her. I would keep her all to myself, but how fair would that be? Go for the gold go for the....Gwin!

    After a careful search, I selected Ms. Gwin as the piano instructor for my very energetic 5 and 6 year old sons. She has been able to keep them focused during lessons and has sparked an interest in piano in them that has surpassed my expectations. I look forward to continuing having her work with my boys.

    Working with Gwin has been an amazing experience! This is my first time ever working with a vocal coach and taking music lessons. I am 100% pleased with her professionalism, ability to motivate, flexibility, and her talent to pull my own creativity out that I did not know existed. These lessons have been surprisingly affordable. But most importantly I'm impressed with the results she has produced. I would highly recommend Gwin and her musicality.

    I have a very shy but talented 12yr. old daughter with a passion for music. Ms. Gwin was the perfect fit for my daughter. The second we met her we knew we were in good hands! Her energy and the way she teaches is a amazing...by the second class I couldn't believe that my daughter was singing a full song and made my daughter come out of her shy shell. I have recommended Ms. Gwin Studio to all my co-workers and highly recommend anyone who wants to find their Voice. She's also very patient and a wonderful teacher.

    My 5 year old son was interested in piano lessons and as a parent, it is extremely challenging to find that somewhat perfect instructor that will be patient, loving, gentle and kind. After researching dozens of providers in our area, my husband and I found Ms. Gwen and decided to give her a try. As we all know, 5 year children do not easily warm up to adults; but Ms. Gwen made our son feel really comfortable and he actually "LOVED" his first lesson with her. From that point, we knew we hired the right person to mentor our son. She has a very pleasant personality, is extremely talented and loves her craft! We would highly recommend Ms. Gwen to anyone looking to hire a gifted music teacher and singing coach. Well worth the investment and total peace of mind!

    I'm a 29 year old male with 15 years of experience on bass guitar and was looking to enhance my singing chops. I took lessons under Gwin for several months and she definitely helped me improve my ability to sing! She noticed my strengths and weaknesses and brought it to my attention that I had a singing register that was more than I had initially expected. She also showed me how to use diaphragmatic breathing to sing the right way. I'd recommend Gwin to anyone from beginner to advanced to improve your ability to sing.

    My daughter went to her first lesson with Ms. Gwin. I was so comfortable the minute I walked in the door. Ms. Gwin got so much accomplished in that short time and my daughter who is brand new to doing something like this just fell right in and loved it. I am so happy we found her.

    The Gwin Studio Of Music has been perfect for my family. Tasha Gwin's piano instruction for my 12 year old daughter has truly been awesome. Not only is she flexible with scheduling, Ms. Gwin is very patient & encouraging as she instructs. My daughter is progressing nicely with her lessons as her ability improves week after week. Ms. Gwin sets weekly goals & has an expectation for all of her students. This motivates my daughter to do her best in meeting that expectation. I'm so glad that we found The Gwin Studio of Music!
