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!
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.
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!
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!
So far we’ve had a handful of singing lessons and my daughter loves the teacher.
Barbara is personable and extremely professional with her singing lessons.
I have been taking private singing lessons with Christine for about two years. During this time her coaching has opened up my voice both technically and in terms of emotional expression. We have worked together on a range of classical music, and she is a very hands-on, positive but also exacting teacher. In addition to helping build my repertoire and improve my technique, she also gives me advice about the performance business. I would recommend her 100% to anyone who loves to sing and wants to work on their technique and performance.
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.
As I am away at College currently, and not able to take lessons in person, mandi is advising me on exercises I can do to improve my breathing and support, as well as the placing of my voice and improving my ability to sing on pitch. She has been very kind and patient, as well as immediately responsive to my questions. I look forward to meeting her in person when I am home from College and to taking lessons in person. I would recommend her to any student who is looking for a voice teacher."
As someone who always wanted to sing but never found the courage or belief to, finding Naila has been a life altering Thumbtack experience for me. A gazillion stars to her - who makes music a beautiful learning experience. Naila is an incredible music teacher! She truly cares for the well being of her students and has taught me techniques to gradually build proper voice placement and resonance. I’m learning singing and also taking piano lessons with her.
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.
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
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.
I have been fortunate to have Marina as my voice coach for over a year since I started our voice lessons. Marina’s voice lessons have been invaluable in developing my singing skills. She is aware of a variety of approaches to teaching vocal and is continuously broadening her pedagogy while finding the best-practice suited for a particular lesson with a student. The voice and breathing exercises she taught me have made my vocal development consistent and strong. Our classes are always well informative, developmentally structured, productive, and very enjoyable. Not only Marina is a professional and talented singer herself with a long history of professional knowledge and experience, but she also possesses an exceptional ability to share her talent with students and to find a personalized way that would help them develop their own singing skills.
I have had the pleasure of working and teaching with Dustin for a while now. I've always been impressed by his dedication and enthusiasm as a teacher. He consistently was able to reach out to a wide range of students, K-12 from many backgrounds. He's very knowledgeable of both classical and musical theatre styles of singing. Dustin's ability to communicate the foundations of healthy singing to young singers combined with his professionalism and fun-loving personality makes him one of the best teachers I know.
I sing on my church choir and noticed that I wasn't connecting to the directions of the music director. Terrence taught my son piano several years ago and was on his second year teaching my daughter. So I began taking voice lessons with Terrence and began learning how to control my breathing and protecting my vocal cords as well as learning about tone, pitch and stamina. I look forward to our next set of lessons which also fits my budget!
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!!
