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.

Amazing! David is knowledgeable, lovely, generous, a true artist and we are so lucky to have found him. We are committed to studying with him long term. I'm sure it had nothing to do with you guys at thumbtack. I checked out two different voice teachers. David offered a complimentary consultation lesson, and the other charged supposedly a special price, not cheap, for having found him on thumbtack, for the consultation lesson, and then not clear about how much the actual lessons would coast, plus insisted on getting paid over the phone right away, and answer a ton of questions through some secretary, because he wasn't available. I opted for David, and made my appointed with him. Not complicated at all, a lovely apt. a lovely person, passionate, very knowledgeable and talented. I booked my next lesson happily, and plan on continuing with this voice teacher for at least a year. Singing is an art, and the voice coach should be represented with class, and should not be so cold and calculated, all about the money. With David I will thrive, and he will earn a new student, if not two.

I've been taking voice lessons with Rae for about six months now, and I can’t believe the amount of improvement I've made within that time frame. I originally didn't intend to take lessons with her, but merely have a coaching session of sorts after my unreliable teacher flaked out on me before an audition. I remember thinking “how awkward” when she started talking about what we would be working on next week because, well, I didn’t think there would be a next week. But there was a next week, and many more to come after that. The amount of improvement I made after just one lesson with Rae was astounding. She is great at explaining the impossible. Rae is dedicated to teaching her students. She doesn’t use the lessons as a sing along. She can and will correct your every tendency, but never in a way that is condescending. She truly is a great teacher. I have grown so much thanks to her, and not just musically. I’ve become more observant and I feel much more confident. I’ve noticed a significant improvement in my musical counting capabilities and overall tone quality when I play the flute. Not only am I learning how to sing but I am also learning bits of music theory along the way. We even alleviated my back pain! Who knew I was overarching?!? I sure didn’t. Rae did. I’ve come to realize that these are more than just voice lessons. They’re oftentimes life lessons. I aspire to be on Broadway one day, which is the reason I started taking lessons in the first place, and realize that I should probably learn how to dance. I once said to Rae “I can’t dance and am not a dancer”. A few months later, I changed my mindset and changed that statement to “I don’t know how to dance”. I know understand that I am capable of so much more than I originally thought, and that I just need to learn how to do these things and will eventually discover what my limitations are. With my old teacher I felt as if I had a mediocre range. The highest note I would ever sing with her was a D and she would frequently have me struggling to hit notes far below my lower register. With Rae, I now realize that my range is almost double what I had originally believed it to be. I realize that my voice isn't “pretty and wispy and high”. I realize that I am strong and am a force to be reckoned with. I realize that I am a beginner who had bad habits and that there is no shame in that. I realize that I should act without hesitating and be big and uninhibited. And I realize I have a really awesome voice teacher.

Mara has been giving voice lessons to my 10 yr old daughter for several months and she is amazing. She makes every lesson fun and engaging. Mara is well trained, a great teacher and an overall awesome woman. We could not recommend her more highly.

Pamela is fantastic! I've only had two private lessons with her so far and already she has helped me fine tune my voice a lot. She is truly a great teacher and knows how to guide and help you to work on both your strengths and weaknesses. Before going to Pamela I knew I could carry a tune, but after utilizing her instruction she has helped me unlock a much more refined side of my voice. Truly a brilliant teacher!

Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.

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.

I've had five lessons with LaJuan over the summer. I liked it so much my husband and daughter also took lessons! LaJuan is very professional and has worked with our hectic schedule. She strikes a balance between working with our limitations and pushing us to do better. I like how at the end of my five sessions, I know my range, what music soothes my voice and had my first recording. We will certainly take more lessons as singing is a never ending journey. Try her services, you'll love it too!

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.

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!!

She made me feel super at ease from the very start. Always showed up to lessons with a plan A and a plan B, so that I could be the one to decide how I wanted to tailor my lessons. Loved that! I improved so much from her lessons, not only in actual skills but in confidence as well. Such a genuine person with so much talent to share!!

Corey is a great teacher. He's very good at explaining techincial musical information. Each session focuses on the areas I need improvement and we only move on once that is down/understood. And sometimes the lessons move away from the original topic/theme and goes where the conversation leads us. Corey is super knowledgable and iappreciate our conversations about the construction and physical technicalities of the instrument. He's really patient too.

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!!

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.
