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.
This is the place you want to go if you want to learn anything related to voice and vocal performance. Since the lessons are 1 on 1, the experience is highly personalized and tailored to suit your specific needs as a student. Patrick is the main instructor and does a phenomenal job of explaining concepts and developing them into reality. You will find yourself with a voice you didn't know you had after just a few lessons and practice. Each lesson focuses on vocal exercises and specific songs to work on, but you can work on specific points of difficulties as well, as said before each experience is personalized. Jon Price is another instructor which also does an outstanding job as a teacher and vocalist. Both instructors are extremely helpful. The program is organized, with specific goals and objectives being set so your progress can be kept track of. These are all kept on a USB stick along with any other media materials a student may need such a songs, recordings of each lessons, exercises, and more. They also offer Saturday bootcamps for free, which are group voice lessons that focus on other subjects that can greatly benefit your learning progress. Another amazing part of it is that they offer open mic parties on select Saturdays, where a large group of people come together and listen to each other perform a song that they have put a lot of work into. After going to several myself, it really impresses me and others alike to see people come again and again and be able to really hear the positive progress they have made. And the best feeling is probably when everyone claps for you afterwards, acknowledging not juts your performance but the work you put in to achieve it. Afterwards, it becomes a social event and overall really becomes a night to look forward to and look back upon to remember. If anyone is looking to vocally train, go here and the only problem you're going to have is that you didn't go earlier!
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
They have a lot of experience teaching guitar lessons to people with all levels of musical ability. I really enjoyed working with them.
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano lessons.
I am writing this review as a Colleague. While I have not taken lessons with Candice I know as a seasoned Professional Musician and Teacher myself what makes excellence: and excellence is what Candice's Music Studio offers. Candice is Passionate, Crafted at her Art, and an Excellent Leader and Team Player. It takes a lot more than a Degree in Music to be a great Teacher. You have to have Talent,Heart as well as intellect, instinct and: a desire to constantly be expanding your own horizons while lifting those up around you. Candice has those things in spades. Professionally, I refer Students and Professionals to Voice Studios all the time especially in NY. I would not hesitate to send my own Students to Candice's Music Studio. Very Best - Jen M Vanella Vocal Specialist, Artist, Educator, & Advocate
Glenn is an amazing drummer and more importantly a great teacher and music mentor. He is extremely knowledgeable about his craft and is very patient and adjusts to any students learning pace. If your looking for a great drum teacher, Glenn is the right guy for the job.
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!
Adam is a phenomenal teacher . His attitude was great and I appreciate all the knowledge he can provide. He is fun and personable and I loved the aura and professionalism, definitely going to continue my guitar lessons. He is passionate about music which I consider extremely important. Looking forward to my next guitar lesson .
He focuses quickly on areas for needed improvement and gives excellent, friendly advice on how to achieve it.
My 12-year old nephew has been taking guitar lessons with John for about three years now and I can't believe how much he has improved! John is patient, kind and inspiring and my nephew is always excited for his next lesson with him. We have had a couple of teachers before John but John is by far the most experienced and motivating. He also has a very structured approach to the lesson and my nephew always walks away with a clear idea of exactly what he needs to practice. I should also mention that my nephew is interested in many different types of music and John is knowledgeable in all fields, and is happy to cater to my nephew's musical tastes while at the same time maintaining an organized teaching regiment. I would recommend John for anyone, he is a great teacher all around!
I have worked with Katie on several occasions as part of a vocal ensemble. She is both incredibly talented as a singer and choral leader. She has impeccable sight-singing skills, and her ability to go from classical to Broadway to pop/rock/folk music is seamless. A real pro!
I don't know where to begin, Jim is one of the best music teachers I've ever had. And I've been playing instruments for over 25 years. Jim is very knowledgeable and well-versed on percussion. He was also really patient with me which I appreciate - since it's been several years since I played drums. But I picked it back up right away with Jim's teaching and I'm really happy with the results of my lessons. I highly recommend Jim Saint-Amour as a drum instructor!
Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!
