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.
Bass lessons with Dom are amazing! He takes great care to patiently teach me music theory. His lessons are well-paced and informative. He is encouraging, skilled, and thorough. Learning from a guitar player as skilled as Dom is truly a dream. I can't wait for the day we will truly start jamming together!
I first started working with Claim Your Voice when I was in high school. Rae gave me a solid foundation, based in healthy singing technique, that has allowed me to sing at a professional level. After a few years off, & with a few bad habits, I went back to Rae. In one lesson she was able to diagnose my troubles & to help me correct them. Lessons are always both fun & productive, the value is outstanding, & I am looking forward to continuing to work with Claim Your Voice! Thank you!
Lessons with David were great. I've been playing for more than 10 years but haven't progressed much beyond looking up tabs on the internet and playing along to the songs I like. In just a few lessons, David helped me see the fretboard as a whole and play scales and chord patterns up and down the neck. As a result, my playing is freer and I have greater comfort in moving around on the fretboard and staying in key. It was exactly what i was hoping to learn! I'd recommend David without hesitation. He works hard to understand where your playing level is at and tailors his instruction to push you to the next level.
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.
Taking singing lessons was really going over an edge for me. It was something "other" people did. I had put it off for decades because I didn't want to appear silly. It was just wishful thinking; part of my secret self. I couldn't have been in better hands with Barbara. She met me exactly where I was at and made me feel comfortable. I had wished to sing one song well. Working with Barbara turns out to be more than that. It's more about expression, finding my voice, playfulness and feeling the song. It's really a growth experience.
Jimi is an amazing teacher. His versatility and depth of knowledge, not only of guitar, but of music theory make his style of instruction completely tailored to the interests of student. Jimi is a musician in his heart and his passion for music is tempered only by his intense humanity. There are no drills, there's no yelling. There's only an immersion in music and true scaffolding of skills. Additionally, you'll find yourself laughing and learning all the same in a way that breeds a true life long love of playing. My lessons with Jimi added a dimension to my life in knowing and understanding music that is truly like a 6th sense. He enablers me to shear the world in ways I never would have otherwise. Anyone would be well served to take lessons with him--or just to talk about music with him.
Gregor is a wonderful violinist and a thoughtful musician. As someone who has worked with him on and off for years, I'm positive he'd bring the same qualities into his studio and pass his love of music on to his students.
Francis is very professional. His piano lessons are very tailored and engaging. I would highly recommend.
Sean is a wonderful teacher and a great guy. I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking music lessons.
I've been getting piano lessons for a few months now, and we just started working on voice as well. Dave is knowledgeable, patient, and really wonderful to work with.
Chris is great. He's warm and funny with my six year old twins, and they love the lessons. They're really learning with him and this isn't at all something their parents are making them do. Chris has created an environment in which they look forward to playing. I hope they stick with him for a long time.
Soulful Sounds played for the cocktail hour at hour wedding in July. They were very accommodating and professional. They also SOUND amazing! They played songs that everyone enjoyed and really helped to set the atmosphere. I would definitely recommend them! Thank you Soulful Sounds! :-)
"Our two daughters began studying with Jonathan over five years ago when they were just 5 and 7 years old, respectively. They now play quite beautifully and we cannot imagine our home without our piano. They hate to practice, of course, but they can't seem to walk past the piano without giving it a play. Jonathan has been an enthusiastic and engaging teacher who goes out of his way to tailor his lessons to the needs of the kids, to keep them interested and also to have fun. By exposing the girls to an array of musical genres, from Pop to Classical to Jazz to American Standards, our girls have not only learned how to play, but are developing an appreciation for all types of music. We look forward to continuing their musical education with Jonathan!" Victoria M.
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.
I am always looking forward to meeting with Oriana! I’m an advanced musician but she is really knowledgeable and teach me music in a way that I always learn new things even though I’ve been playing piano for 8 years now. Thanks Miss Oriana!
Marlene is such a fun and inspiring teacher! I always look forward to our lessons together. Marlene is expecially knowledgeable in building healthy piano technique which has been very helpful for me.
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
I have been taking Piano lessons with Robert for the past month and a half. I started as a complete beginner and I've really enjoyed my lessons. Robert is an excellent teacher who provides a structured method to learning while also keeping you motivated throughout. I'm already able to play a few songs and I'm looking forward to getting better!
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!!
I was looking for a teacher who can teach beginner adult violin and I found a perfect teacher! I learned violin when I was a child so I did have prior exposure but I haven't played it for about 10 years so I didn't know where I stand or where I should start from. Tianyang also checked the condition of my violin (it was still in a playable condition thankfully). After the first lesson he could see exactly where I stand now and where I should start from. He is helping me to learn the right posture again and he's giving tons of tips as well. He is very patient and encouraging. He works well with adults but I am sure he'll be good at teaching children as well. I'm very glad to learn violin from him!
