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!
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.
After years of being self-taught, I realized I wanted to take the next step and truly learn the instrument the right way. In just a month with Dom, it is clear that I chose the perfect teacher. His knowledge of guitar and experience in teaching has you learning to read sheet music and playing songs in just a few lessons. More importantly, Dom is encouraging and enthusiastic which inspires confidence in his students. He is patient, but continues to push you out of your comfort zone. It is clear that Dom cares deeply about the success of his students and I have developed a personal relationship that has me looking forward to the next lesson.
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!
Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.
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.
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.
Chris is a very talented player, and great teacher. Easy to talk to and he's eager to help me improve. The lessons are 100% customized to your skill level. I've been playing for over 15 years and he's taught me a ton so far.
Josh does an amazing job teaching my 8 year old son who started with piano lessons and recently added the electric bass. Josh's method of teaching encourages the kids to pick out fun, often current, songs and gradually build upon the basics. Because he likes the music, my son has made so much progress - he's excited to go to lessons and loves practicing at home (a big change from his previous lessons). We couldn't ask for a better experience.
I took lessons from Jimi for string bass and later for guitar. Through his lessons, I learned how to do more than just read notes on a page. I learned the other important skills of improvising and jamming with others. If I ever had a problem, Jimi would notice and help me work through it. I'm now able to jam out to jazz music on bass and guitar, and it's all thanks to Jimi.
Sean is a wonderful teacher and a great guy. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking music lessons.
I really enjoy the lesson with Mattie, he is very patient and the way he teaches feels very natural and inspiring. I like that his lessons have an interesting balance between theory and practice. Very cool teacher !
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano lessons.
My daughter has been taking piano lessons w/ Ms. Ruth for 5+ years. We love that Ms. Ruth is herself an accomplished musician. She works well with my daughter because she knows when to push her hard and when to relax a little. Like most kids today, my daughter has multiple activities/sports in addition to her school works. Ms. Ruth is flexible with our schedule. Besides teaching my daughter to play lots of the classical pieces; she also encourages her students to play the music that they enjoy. My daughter continues to look forward to her weekly lesson with Ms. Ruth.
Peter has been an absolute joy to my children. I have two young children with learning disabilities (one with dyslexia and one with ADHD) and learning music with Peter is always the highlight of their week. He teaches my son piano and my daughter guitar and they are so fortunate to have a teacher as talented and passionate as he is for teaching music. Make sure you study with him!
Chris is hands down the best guitar teacher I have ever had (I have had six guitar teachers since I started playing 30 years ago). He has taken me further in two months than other instructors did in two years. In every lesson, Chris is constantly assessing where I am in my guitar journey, and plotting a course to get me to the next level. He listens to my every questions and gives succinct answers. His lessons leave me feeling inspired to practice and to just enjoy playing again. For anyone stuck in a pentatonic rut, or just needing inspiration, run, don't walk, to get a few lessons with Chris!
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!
I received piano lessons from Tara for 2 + years and was terribly disappointed when the distance to reach her made continuing impossible. She is knowledgeable, thorough, organized, kind, and supportive. I could not say more nice things or evaluate her more highly.
My name is Molly and I am in 9th grade. I have been working with Mariah for about 6 months. When I came to her, I had been through 2 other voice teachers in a fairly short period of time. I was prepared to think Mariah was just going to be another name on the list, but she certainly wasn’t! She welcomed me with open arms the very first day. I have always had issues with jaw tension, and it was practically gone within the first few weeks of lessons. Now, I can’t even recreate what I was doing with my jaw! She has been the driving force of me improving my breath support and tone beyond measure. Since I have had Mariah, I have gotten into every vocal-based activity I have auditioned for. If that doesn’t say it all, I don’t know what will! I haven’t even mentioned her personality. Mariah is beyong warm and kindhearted. She and I could talk forever and not notice that a second went by. I can’t say how often I come into my lesson with some crazy audition music or request. No matter what, we work on what I want to and make it tons better every time! I would definitely recommend Mariah as a voice teacher!
