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 am looking forward to continuing music lessons with David. I met him for the first time this week. I know that he will be able to achieve my goals. I was looking for a teacher that specifically can teach sight singing. I am more than confident that I'll be sight singing very soon. David is obviously is genuinely passionate about teaching. It is a career for him not just something done here and there. I'm lucky to have met him.
Awesome teacher, he just jumps right in with you. Our first class I learned the basics of drums, names of each, some drum rudiments and then we went through some songs I liked and played along with the music. The lesson was fun, Mike is super easy going and provides lots of good feedback.
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!
Barbara is personable and extremely professional with her singing lessons.
Michelle is the piano teacher I wished for when I was a kid! Michelle is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One of the things my 7-year-old loves most about Michelle is that she lets her explore her musical creative side. Michelle has guided my daughter in composing her own music, tackling tough songs of her own choosing and in introducing instruments like the harmonica into her selections. Michelle is always upbeat and full of positive energy and as a result my daughter loves her music lessons.
Dan is really nice teacher. I'm glad to took his singing lessons. He always teach me singing and that backdrop. It really helps me. When i have a question, he explains clearly. I recommend his lesson :) Thank you for everything Dan.
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.
Gregor is a kind and supportive teacher who made my lessons fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend him to anyone who is considering violin lessons for the first time or already an experienced player.
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano lessons.
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.
Amy is such an amazing vocal teacher. I went to her as a nasally 12 year old who adored singing and I came out of my lessons with her so much stronger, not only vocally but also more confident. I learned so many styles including Broadway, classical, and pop. She was very open to finding music I enjoyed singing. Because of her lessons, I landed roles in my schools musicals and I have recorded music in a studio. She also realizes how emotional singing can be for some people. She was like a second mother to me. She was there to see not only my vocal growth, but my emotional growth. I've worked with vocal coaches through musicals and school but Amy was definitely the teacher who made me feel most comfortable and helped me most to grow.
I have been working with Sophia for a year. Previous to my lessons with her, I had never taken voice other than choir as a high school class. I absolutely loved working with her! I feel like my music preference and her method really worked together swimmingly. (I am training musical theater songs)She taught me things I could do on my own (and these are things I still do everyday!) The amount my vocal range and confidence has changed in the past year is AMAZING and I can only thank her for the tools she gave me to become a better vocalist. I 100% recommend her if you are looking for someone who really cares about your voice AND you!
Corinn has taught my daughter for 7 years for both piano and voice. She has instilled a love of music and passion for learning that few could have. She has patience, knowledge and professionalism in addition to being a wonderful person. Would recommend her to anyone... You simply won't find better.
My daughter loves her violin teacher! We switched to City Strings from another music academy, and couldn't be happier!
I could never expect that I could have such a deep and warm sound. Emanuele really helped me to release all my tension and to feel free while I play.Thanks to him I have now a much more professional sound and a much more serious approach to the violin. Every lesson is a new experience, I really enjoy studying with him.
I had a great lesson with Jim. By the end of the first class I'd been able to try a few different types of saxophones and just about play notes on each of them, despite never having even held a Saxophone prior to that. He had a very relaxed style and even took the time to suggest music to listen to once the class had finished. I'd definitely recommend classes with him to friends or anyone else wanting to learn.
Throughout the last year I have seen a huge improvement in my singing and music theory skills. At the beginning of my lessons I was not able to site read or do tonal memory, now I can do both successfully! Also I have worked my way up to sing arias! He is a wonderful teacher!
Darren is an amazing producer that can do it all and do it well. From vocal lessons to tracking to co-writing, to recently re-arranging, producing, and mixing the back-tracks for my live show; he has consistently provided solutions, creativity, and musical expertise throughout. He is a master communicator and a true professional that solves problems and cares deeply about fulfilling the needs of his client's projects. I highly recommend his services.
