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!
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!
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!
Great teacher, very professional. Really attempts to know the student before embarking on teaching- very effective lessons. Very much so recommend for any vocal lessons.
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.
Chris has recently started giving guitar lessons to my 14 year old son who really loves classic rock. Chris immediately started out with songs that my son chose which has been a great approach. My son is really loving playing so far and I look forward to him continuing to work with Chris. Chris is also friendly, responsive and very professional.
I always leave Anettes lessons feeling uplifted and inspired to go home and practice. Her teaching is thorough and encouraging and I feel she has a super sense for where I'm at and what I need to do to get better.
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
Before my lessons with Katryna, the only singing I've allowed myself was in my shower! She is an amazing teacher, who told me how to find and control my voice. Now I am planning to record a song as an anniversary present for my husband :) So whether you have high or low skills level I'd recommend Katryna for you 100%. Not only an experience teacher, but also a great person!
My 5 year old started with Ms. Delon 2 months ago. Her piano teaching style is exceptional. She means real piano lessons and every single minute of her class is maximize! In a Very short span of time, my daughter is reading and writing notes and playing several piano pieces. My daughter’s love for music keeps growing more and more since the day we met Ms. Delon. She looks forward for her piano class every Saturday!
I am currently a freshman vocal major at Laguardia High School, and thanks to Jonathan, I feel I have a lot to contribute to the school. The great thing about my joint piano and vocal lessons with Jonathan, is that he doesn’t force any technique or style of music. He tailors my lessons to what I want to work on, which, for me, can then translate into my ability to perform at school. He is a skilled arranger and can mold a song to fit my level of playing so that I can accompany myself or my peers. Most importantly, the lessons are a blast! He is super encouraging and his sense of humor make it so much fun to work with him. Emma F.
We were looking for a Jazz piano teacher for our teenage daughter. How lucky we were to have found Joanthan Segal! He's exceptionally talented and patient - a rare combination. Our daughter has been going to him for weekly private lessons since 2015 and is very happy with his instructions. She looks forward to her time with Jonathan every week and can't wait to get home and practice what they worked on! I highly recommend Jonathan to anyone seeking quality piano lessons.
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!!
I've been taking weekly lessons with Corinn for about 7/8 weeks and cannot believe the improvement. I feel so much more prepared and confident for my upcoming auditions. I can honestly say that I have never had a voice teacher as knowledgeable and as committed to my success as Corinn is. I can't thank you enough Corinn!!
I could not have asked for a better experience than I had taking voice lessons with Rebecca for three consecutive years. With her help, I improved not only my voice but my confidence. When I started working with Rebecca my voice was barely trained and I had little control or knowledge over how I was using it. She worked with me week after week, giving me new songs that would test my limits and then show me techniques and strategies that would help my voice grow to the strength it would need for that song. I constantly found that a song would feel hard when she first gave it to me and then suddenly appear easier two or three weeks later because of how she was pushing me. It was Rebecca's genuine interest and faith in my voice that kept me going back to her for years, too. When I thought a note was too high to hit or a rhythm was impossible to figure out, she would gently insist that I would get it and then prove time and time again that I could. I owe my voice and my confidence to Rebecca and the incredible teacher, guide and role model that she is to her students.
Kaya is an amazing teacher, her professionalism could not be surpassed. She is the complete package: talented pianist, singer, patient, funny, kind, and undersranding of unique family dynamics. My 6 year old is incredibly timid and does not warm up to people easily. Kaya was understanding of that and even when I was about to give up, she persisted, becoming friends with my Olivia which resulted not only in Olivia warming up to her, but in Olivia already being able to play several songs on the piano after less than 2 months. My little girl looks forward to her class and playing games with Kaya (games through which she has learned proper breathing and posture). This has already begun to pay off in more ways than one, Olivia can already play the piano and feels more confident. I highly recommend Kaya, particularly if you have somewhat of a difficult child, she seems to be able to connect in a way that has astonished me. If you have an easy child, than all the more reason to use Kaya because it will be that much easier for her to teach your child. This is by far the best investment I have made. Thank you Kaya All the best, Aurelia
I am wildly enthusiastic about the work Jessica Tivens is doing with my teenage daughter. Not only did Jessica help her prepare in just 6 sessions to audition for a prestigious vocal program (and my girl got in), she continues to offer topnotch individualized lessons. She knows everything--about the voice, taking care of the voice, Broadway musicals, who's who--everything! Not only this, she is utterly reliable, responsive and extremely personable. Jessica is vivacious, kind, positive and optimistic--and a stunningly talented singer, of course! She is humble enough that she doesn't take over the lesson with her own singing, but when we do get to hear her, we hear what mastery, excellence and, well, angels sound like.
For the past year, I've been Mariah Kaplan's singing teacher. She came to me with a strong background, but people can always get better. She truly loves singing and teaching. She cares about doing everything right, not just for herself, but for what she can give to her students. She sees each student as an individual, with distinctive needs, goals, and problems. She genuinely likes her students. When they work hard, she's their biggest supporter. When they have problems, she'll use every resource she can find to help them. She never settles for good enough. She knows they can do better, and if that means she has to do better, she figures out how to do that. It's exciting to work with a student like Mariah Kaplan, and I know she passes the excitement and joy that she brings to her own lessons on to her students. Anyone would be lucky to work with Mariah Kaplan.
