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!
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.
Working with Gwin has been an amazing experience! This is my first time ever working with a vocal coach and taking music lessons. I am 100% pleased with her professionalism, ability to motivate, flexibility, and her talent to pull my own creativity out that I did not know existed. These lessons have been surprisingly affordable. But most importantly I'm impressed with the results she has produced. I would highly recommend Gwin and her musicality.
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.
Bourque was great to work with. She creates a very relaxed environment and helps you find the voice you never knew you had. I never thought I was able to sing, but after a few lessons with her, I realized that I actually had a decent voice hidden away!
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
Genya is a rare combination of artist and teacher with a touch of playfulness that makes the wonderful but challenging task of learning how to sing a delight. The joy that she gets from teaching and singing is contagious and inspires all who work with her and her warm sense of humor and ever present wit are the extra gifts that every student and colleague is treated to.at no extra charge!
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
Just did my first lesson with Justin yesterday, he's awesome! Great guy, easy to talk to, and he's got a nice studio with air conditioning to practice in. Really comfortable environment and immediately felt trust in Justin's teaching. Will be continuing my lessons with him!
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.
pleasant, knowledgeable, talented and on time. No pressure. Provides a planned direction to have a beginner progress.
As a performer, Jac Grady’s talent, professionalism, and musicianship are extraordinary. After many years of seeing her perform onstage, I worked lights and sound for her Houston vocal studio’s final performance. It was during this rehearsal process that I first had the privilege of seeing Jac’s teaching process in action. Her patience, compassion, and dedication to her young students was astounding. It is difficult to imagine that she could have another gift that matches her incomparable singing voice until you see her with students. When I moved to NYC myself, Jac was the obvious choice for voice lessons. What I appreciate about Jac’s teaching is her extensive knowledge of the human voice and surrounding anatomy. When she worked with me on addressing my neck tension and vibrato she Illustrated and clearly explained what my voice and body were doing and what they should be doing. She never made me feel ashamed or embarrassed or stupid, which is especially important in having a productive creative relationship. Jac is patient but also firm - she believes in her students’ potential and will push you to see the same. MOST importantly Jac is careful with her younger students voices - so much damage can be caused to the voice at that age if the instructor does not teach proper technique!
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!
