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 have been working with David for singing lessons for over a month now and within the first lesson have seen vast improvement. He caters each lesson to you specifically and is able to expand on your problem areas with such ease that it becomes easily conquered. His ability to explain the right methods of practice have significantly helped my voice. I would recommend him to any person seeking to improve their voice. We'll worth any travel distance!
David an amazingly skillful and inspiring teacher. I never imagined I would enjoy singing lessons this much. And he is just an all around great guy.
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!
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!
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.
As a complete novice to singing and actually pretty terrified of singing in public, Anette was the perfect fit for me. She made me feel absolutely comfortable and created a safe environment. Plus her instructions and exercises are spot on, even for someone completely new to singing. Added bonus is that her personality is super fun so we shared lots of laughs during practice. I can 100% recommend Anette.
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
What a great learning experience! Genya is a highly skilled singing teacher who can actually make drills fun. She has a way of describing the process that can turn anyone into a singer.
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.
Sophia is both professional and friendly. She knows exactly how to get your voice right. She’s passionate about teaching and singing, and she would make you enjoy your lessons as much as possible!
He is very knowledgeable and patient with me I still attend his vocal lessons once a week
Corinn has taught my two daughters (13 & 15) piano and voice for the past 3 years. She is the best teacher we have had and we are thrilled that she has moved with us, by sheer luck, from London to NJ! She is extremely reliable and conscientious and is a talented and patient teacher who challenges my girls as individuals and has helped improve their skills tremendously. They look forward to their lessons with Corinn and feel as very comfortable with her. She is a very talented singer and pianist and is passing on her love of music to our daughters. We feel very lucky to have her influence in their lives.
Michelle is not only a wonderful person she is a remarkable teacher. I sing with Michelle in the Schiller NJ Chorus and have private singing lessons with her. Not only is her voice glorious but her teaching style covers the many aspects of singing; anatomy, music theory, voice control/development and gentle informative critiques. She’s the best!
I've taken voice lessons from a handful of teachers before Jac, and will take from no else after taking from her! Her knowledge of the voice is immensive, she understands how to teach to different learning types and she is EXPERT in many different styles of singing which I find to be very helpful as a student. I originally came to Jac for help with musical theater auditioning, but what really surprised me was the tricks and tools she knew to help you not only hear the difference in your voice but FEEL the differences too. Of course since I came to her for audition help she has not only helped me build a book of appropriate song for roles I'd be up for, but also understanding how to fill out your book with rep that is balanced.
Nick is a wonderful vocal teacher with a pleasant disposition. He has been providing me with voice lessons for more than a year. I have much improved with his help. Having someone who can bring their own vast vocal experience and musical knowledge is a huge bonus. Encouraging and very patient!
I saw Verena for a few sessions to get prepared for open mic gigs that I wanted to start with and in general sing in public. I have had singing classes before, and what I loved about her approach is that she is so open and non judgmental and so patient, she picks you up exactly where you are and helps you build up from there. I loved that we had a lot of fun during our sessions too. They were held at her house in Brooklyn which made me feel at home and she accompanied me on her keyboard. I felt very free to move around in the space and try out things with my voice and body. I could explore my voice and she would be there as a guiding force. I can recommend her highly. I worked on a few songs that I had brought in and when leaving I felt ready to sing them outside afterwards. I had my first successful open mic recently and then another right after, so much fun. I will definitely work with her again in the future.
