I've been taking voice lessons with Rae for about six months now, and I cant believe the amount of improvement I've made within that time frame. I originally didn't intend to take lessons with her, but merely have a coaching session of sorts after my unreliable teacher flaked out on me before an audition. I remember thinking how awkward when she started talking about what we would be working on next week because, well, I didnt think there would be a next week. But there was a next week, and many more to come after that. The amount of improvement I made after just one lesson with Rae was astounding. She is great at explaining the impossible. Rae is dedicated to teaching her students. She doesnt use the lessons as a sing along. She can and will correct your every tendency, but never in a way that is condescending. She truly is a great teacher. I have grown so much thanks to her, and not just musically. Ive become more observant and I feel much more confident. Ive noticed a significant improvement in my musical counting capabilities and overall tone quality when I play the flute. Not only am I learning how to sing but I am also learning bits of music theory along the way. We even alleviated my back pain! Who knew I was overarching?!? I sure didnt. Rae did. Ive come to realize that these are more than just voice lessons. Theyre oftentimes life lessons. I aspire to be on Broadway one day, which is the reason I started taking lessons in the first place, and realize that I should probably learn how to dance. I once said to Rae I cant dance and am not a dancer. A few months later, I changed my mindset and changed that statement to I dont know how to dance. I know understand that I am capable of so much more than I originally thought, and that I just need to learn how to do these things and will eventually discover what my limitations are. With my old teacher I felt as if I had a mediocre range. The highest note I would ever sing with her was a D and she would frequently have me struggling to hit notes far below my lower register. With Rae, I now realize that my range is almost double what I had originally believed it to be. I realize that my voice isn't pretty and wispy and high. I realize that I am strong and am a force to be reckoned with. I realize that I am a beginner who had bad habits and that there is no shame in that. I realize that I should act without hesitating and be big and uninhibited. And I realize I have a really awesome voice teacher.
Mara has been giving voice lessons to my 10 yr old daughter for several months and she is amazing. She makes every lesson fun and engaging. Mara is well trained, a great teacher and an overall awesome woman. We could not recommend her more highly.
Pamela is fantastic! I've only had two private lessons with her so far and already she has helped me fine tune my voice a lot. She is truly a great teacher and knows how to guide and help you to work on both your strengths and weaknesses. Before going to Pamela I knew I could carry a tune, but after utilizing her instruction she has helped me unlock a much more refined side of my voice. Truly a brilliant teacher!
Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.
Barbara is a true expert. Every critique she has offered has been spot on. I leave my lesson feeling invigorated. I would recommend Barbara to anyone interested in taking lessons.
Christine is an honest professional. Her passion for music is as evident as her expertise. Without a doubt, I will be going back to her for lessons. I presented her with a challenge for sure. I needed to learn three contrasting pieces of music for an audition within a week. Man, oh man. Christine is definitely a miracle woman. She corrected a lot of my poor habits in technique, gave me lots of insight for future reference, and helped me gain my confidence as a vocalist. Needless to say, I learned all three pieces. Aside from her very obvious superiority in knowledge, she is just the sweetest woman. Very fun, friendly, and welcoming. She always made sure to offer me water or ask how I'm feeling about my progress. She made sure to give honest critique as well as solutions for enhancement. She also always made a point to emphasize my progress as means of encouragement. I 100% recommend Christine without hesitation, no matter what your level or experience with music is. You'll learn a lot for sure and you're getting an absolutely excellent experience for such a great price! As a full-time university student, of course that's something I always look out for. I'm so grateful that was able to get professional help on such short notice for a reasonable price per lesson. In short, the woman knows her stuff. Thanks for everything Christine, I'll surely be coming back to you!
I've been a musical instrumentalist and wanted to learn the mechanics of how to control my voice as an instrument. I've had two lessons so far and have learned a ton. I've been pleased with the clarity and pacing of Dan's instruction. He records 4-5 min segments on my phone to review and practice. It's very effective.
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.
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.
We were looking for a Jazz piano teacher for our teenage daughter. How lucky we were to have found Joanthan Segal! He's exceptionally talented and patient - a rare combination. Our daughter has been going to him for weekly private lessons since 2015 and is very happy with his instructions. She looks forward to her time with Jonathan every week and can't wait to get home and practice what they worked on! I highly recommend Jonathan to anyone seeking quality piano lessons.
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
My 5 year old son started taking piano lessons with WillYouLearn a couple months ago and we are beyond thrilled! My son looks forward to the lesson each week and has made tremendous progress in the short time he has been playing. He already can play songs by memory. The lessons are thorough and our instructor is punctual, accessible and always engaged with my son. Highly recommend!
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!!
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.
She made me feel super at ease from the very start. Always showed up to lessons with a plan A and a plan B, so that I could be the one to decide how I wanted to tailor my lessons. Loved that! I improved so much from her lessons, not only in actual skills but in confidence as well. Such a genuine person with so much talent to share!!
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 sang with Jessica three years ago in a concert. I was very impressed with her technique. When I heard that she was going to open a studio, I immediately called her and started lessons with her. This has been one of my best decisions. She is not only a fantastic singer, but she is very knowledgeable about vocal pedagogy. What is gratifying to me is that she has the ability to explain exactly what you are doing incorrectly, but can also explain to you how to correct it and makes it easier for you to sing a "pop song or a Verdi aria". You feel a tremendous sense of accomplishment and not frustration in your lesson. She is funny, smart and talented!
Olivia has made my vocal lessons challenging and so enjoyable. Every week is terrific.
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.
If you want to learn singing, become good at it and advance I'd recommend Jac Grady as a voice teacher. Her lessons are well structured and cover a significant area of singing technique and music. Jac's interaction with her students is very professional and positive.
Ms Price is very dedicated to students success. My daughter had been a student for over a year and I seen my daughter go from shy and only singing to herself to singing around the house and wanting to go on auditions. If you want to prepare your child for show biz ness She’s definitely the right person to develope your child. She had proven track record of students in BroadwY plays and acting roles.
