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.
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!
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.
Barbara is personable and extremely professional with her singing lessons.
Jan is an amazing instructor, especially for beginners. She is able to identify your vocal range, what style fits you best and how to improve within a short amount of time. Your improvement does depend on practicing outside of the lessons so spend a lot of time singing aloud! Jan is very encouraging and pin points areas for progress. I came into the lessons with no knowledge of music or my style of vocals, but now I am able to understand music notes and sing on my own. I am thankful to have found 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.
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.
Chris has recently started giving guitar lessons to my 14 year old son who really loves classic rock. Chris immediately started out with songs that my son chose which has been a great approach. My son is really loving playing so far and I look forward to him continuing to work with Chris. Chris is also friendly, responsive and very professional.
Jonathan is a wonderful teacher! As an adult student who already has piano experience, I was looking to take jazz lessons and Jonathan was the perfect fit! He is wealth of knowledge in all kinds of musical styles. As a teacher he is patient, open, funny and adapts each lesson to what you want to achieve. I have thoroughly enjoyed my lessons with him!
Kino is really patient with me, and her space is really clean, bright and large, highly recommend her for piano lessons.
Michael is an excellent teacher that's easy to relate to and fun to learn from. He tweaks his lessons based on your interests and goals which makes the experience a lot more engaging. For someone who was learning western music for the very first time, he made it very approachable and taught me some basic music theory too. Overall, I'd highly recommend Michael...he's a fantastic and versatile player himself, with a clear knack for teaching.
To whom it may concern, Marina Poplavskaya has changed my vocal journey, entirely. I had the fortune of meeting her at the age of seventeen, just before my auditions for the major conservatories in New York City. I came to her with a wide array of bad habits and faulty technique. As an instructor and as a person, she was a breath of fresh air. She was straight-forward, concise, and incredibly clear as well as passionate and involved. Working on my technique was only the beginning. She taught me how to approach learning a piece/role, how to analyze libretto, understand concepts behind music, and develop correct and consistent diction with French, German, and Italian. Every piece we worked on, we would go into depth. No rock was left unturned. She helped expand my palate for references and was always available to answer any major (or minor) questions or concerns. My confidence in her grew stronger after each successful lesson. It was the first time everything taught to me made sense and was applicable even in my personal practice after my lessons. After not professionally studying with a private teacher for almost two years, I came to her with only a few months to prepare for my auditions and what she did in those few months was extraordinary. I now study at Mannes School of Music and I got accepted thanks to all the effort Marina put in. She set the foundation for a strong technique that I am lucky to build on every day. The instructors in my music classes noticed the difference immediately. My breathing was steady and stable, my tone was pointed and focused, and I had developed enough muscle strength to express dynamics and re-attack each phrase, without losing steam. To add to an unfaltering technique, I was an informed singer. Marina encouraged and guided me to do a word by word translation of each text that I was to perform, as well as its precise diction, which helped me deliver the music in a much more connected and accurate way. Without her, I would be lost as an artist. She made me a better student, a better musician, and a much stronger and more confident vocalist. I will be forever grateful. Sincerely, Yuliya Maschenko Mannes School of Music Lyric Soprano
Rebecca is the best vocal teacher out there! She is warm, patient, supportive and really makes you feel comfortable. I would look forward to lessons with Rebecca every week and really learned so much from her. She taught me so much about finding my own voice and really made me confident about my own abilities. Not only did she teach me music, but Rebecca's classes also taught me a great deal about myself and what I wanted to do with my life. I'd recommend her in a heartbeat !!!
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!!
My 5 year old started with Ms. Delon 2 months ago. Her piano teaching style is exceptional. She means real piano lessons and every single minute of her class is maximize! In a Very short span of time, my daughter is reading and writing notes and playing several piano pieces. My daughter’s love for music keeps growing more and more since the day we met Ms. Delon. She looks forward for her piano class every Saturday!
Cantormum is caring, knowledgeable, talented and intuitive. She is able to tease out one's issues and challenges to singing and gives the person techniques and exercises to sensitize the person and teach him how to overcome them. She teaches singing using music the person loves and finds the pitches that are within the person's range to grow. My son leaves her lessons ready and motivated to practice what he's learned.
I am currently a freshman vocal major at Laguardia High School, and thanks to Jonathan, I feel I have a lot to contribute to the school. The great thing about my joint piano and vocal lessons with Jonathan, is that he doesn’t force any technique or style of music. He tailors my lessons to what I want to work on, which, for me, can then translate into my ability to perform at school. He is a skilled arranger and can mold a song to fit my level of playing so that I can accompany myself or my peers. Most importantly, the lessons are a blast! He is super encouraging and his sense of humor make it so much fun to work with him. Emma F.
Oli taught me for about three years from when I was 12 years old to 15. My lessons with him played a pivotal role in my development as a musician. I found him to be extremely motivating and by having him as a mentor I was able to improve my skills immensely. I will always look fondly upon my lessons with Oli and regard him highly as an educator and a musician. This year I will be starting the Jazz course at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and it is clear to me that my deep passion for jazz music that continues to this day was initially inspired by Oli, and for that I am very grateful.
Very informative and professional, in both practice and music theory. I enjoy every class and can't wait to go back again.
