I have been taking lessons with Jesse for two years and my vocal skills have improved dramatically! Instructors like Jesse are hard to come by. I know this because I recently moved and cannot find anyone like him. He's patient with his students and will find a way to improve your skills with or without any previous training. I would highly recommend Jesse Cromer to anyone in search of vocal and piano lessons because he's outstanding and experienced in both categories.
It's hard to find the right piano teacher. But when I found Emily I knew I needed to look no further. I have been taking piano lessons on and off 20 years and within the first few lessons she taught me elements of theory and artistry that I had never seen from a teacher. She is patient, thoughtful and an expert in her craft. She listens and selects pieces that are inspirational to my taste and builds a curriculum to my skill level (intermediate) and pushes me just enough to help me feel confident while still learning new skills.
Phil was absolutely amazing to work with. He used his experience to help us with song choices that was perfect for our day. The music was outstanding and the sound great. I would highly recommend Phil for anyone.
singing lessons have been fun, thorough, well-founded, effective! highly recommend.
I am so happy to have found Kris as my daughter's piano teacher! She is 8 years old, had some introductory, minimal piano lessons at a summer camp last year so basically a beginner student. We started once-a-week lessons in January and 4 months later...L loves playing the piano! She plays when she is getting ready for school, she plays when she gets home from school. I have to remind her about the week's lesson but more importantly, she is experimenting and enjoying making music and this is encouraged by Kris as well as the fundamentals. I have seen her confidence grow, be proud of her development, and practice towards a goal. Since the lessons, when she listens to music she sometimes tries to play the chords or mimic playing it while we are in the car. I can tell she is thinking about how she could play songs she enjoys. Wow! Kris is patient, focused on the student, provides clear guidance and tailors the lessons to her level. For example, if she needs more time to practice a newer concept, he understands this. He also challenges L to stretch her ability a bit each week which is perfect for her personality. He has a calm, positive, and encouraging presence. I am so appreciative of his dependability and flexibility to make up a lesson the two times we weren't able to make our scheduled lesson due to scheduled events. It's clear he cares about the consistency of her lessons/practice and is reasonable about the occasional scheduling hiccups in families. I highly recommend Kris!
Amazing teacher and amazing woman. Singing lessons with Sofia were an amazing journey - to vocal and personal freedom. The teaching method Sofia uses was a revolution, changing almost all I was taught about singin so far - and it brought wonderful, unexpected results! If you are lucky enough to have a chance to learn from her - wow!
Patient, intelligent, talented… Those are just three of the qualities that Maxime displays as a guitar teacher. I started taking guitar lessons from him last year and to be honest, at first I was somewhat concerned about taking music lessons over the Internet. But it’s worked out quite well. And although I am a beginning guitar player, I’m not an inexperienced music student. After undergraduate studies in music. I went to Juilliard on scholarship before going on to perform all over the world. Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, recording contract with Sony. Recorded at Abbey Rd. Studios with the London Philharmonic, PBS radio and TV performances with leading orchestras and opera companies and along the way more voice lessons than I can remember…. 😬 so if there’s one thing I’ve done a lot of it’s take private music lessons. From a lot of people. Some good, some bad, and some great. And I have no qualms about recommending Max to either a beginning or advanced guitar student. He does a great job and is very organized in his teaching. So if you’re thinking of taking lessons give him a try. I think you’ll be very happy. Did I mention that is also a really nice guy…? 😎 Les young
An experienced musician and music teacher, who is flexible and receptive, and who tailors curriculum to teach student's preference. As a result you get a student excited about music lessons-rare occurrence!
My 10 year old son started taking piano lessons with Deanna Maio at Confident Voice Studios a couple of months ago, and she has done a terrific job connecting with him and helping him advance his piano practice. We highly recommend Deanna!
My wife and I have been taking music lessons with Kyle for over a year. He is a very versatile musician being proficient on the piano, guitar and vocals. Because of this he is able explain many different aspects of music. He is also extremely patient. Kyle is the best.
When we arrived for the initial consultation for singing lessons and my daughter saw the piano, she asked if she could take piano lessons first. So, we're now taking piano lessons from Bonnie. I find her to work very well with kids, my daughter is 8, and my daughter likes her and is happy too. She explains things clearly, gives praise when earned, and is helpful and pleasant to work with.
My daughter loves Ms. Greta! We have been with her for over a year and my daughter never complains about going to piano lessons because she is always excited to show Ms. Greta what she has been working on. Very friendly atmosphere and great with kids!
Brenda is an amazing teacher. She is so good with my three girls. Each one is at a different level and Brenda always teaches to their skill and their learning style. she is always positive and upbeat and my girls just love her. She is also flexible to work with are so busy schedule. We have tried piano lessons other places before but never been as happy as we are with Brenda. I would highly recommend her to anyone for lessons
I have had 2 singing lessons so far from Eleni. I feel that I am improving already! She is very skilled and observant and can see quickly where I am holding tension and help guide me how to relax both physically and mentally in ways that instantly effect my voice in positive ways. I am very excited to continue working with her and I highly recommend her as a teacher. She is experienced, highly knowledgeable, friendly and comfortable to be around and effective!!
Haven't started lessons yet, but he is super responsive and friendly.
Dan has provided guitar and voice lessons for my son Connor and he has been wonderful. He is patient, flexible, and very professional, and Connor has dramatically improved in both areas. I highly recommend Dan as a voice and guitar instructor.
I have been taking piano lessons from Anna Fisher for about a year now and have progressed faster than I ever thought possible. I'm an adult returning student and truly value her teaching style. She's patient and kind, and she can answer any question I come up with. Anna is very knowledgeable and offers her students a well-rounded musical experience. Not only does she help me with my piano playing, she also is training me in music theory. I look forward to my lessons every week and leave inspired and encouraged to keep practicing and learning. Anna is truly an artist, and I would highly recommend her to others.
Really easy to work with flexible on the lessons appointments, and right to where you would like to get to music wise, and best, is one on one lessons
Picking the right teacher is a critical step in your development as a guitar player no matter what level you’re at. I’ve had several teachers over the years, some more helpful than others. Here are some reasons why Erick Hailstone is the right guitar teacher for me. • The biggest value-add for me is Erick’s ability to arrange a song, any song, from standard boring arrangement out of a book to a unbelievably cool song with a Jazz or Blues twist with alt-chords throughout. No other teach I’ve encountered in the Portland Metro area does this. And he’s fast at it. He uses great tools in the process, so we can share files and collaborate. The alt-chords are seriously a differentiator how a song sounds and come with a bit of a wow factor. • Erick has the ability to take any complex problem and break it down into smaller issues to work on. He completely gets it when it comes to figuring out “okay, I’m at this level of playing but I’d like to get over here.” He’s got the roadmap to take me there. • As a player, Erick has every single characteristic that I’ve dreamt of having since I was a kid. Great tone/sound. Flawless playing. Shreds when the song calls for it. Steely Dan to Wes Montgomery and everything in between. He makes it look so easy. From the first time I saw him play 20 years ago until today I walk away shaking my head thinking how I’d love to play like that. It’s absolutely incredible. • Some of my most valuable takeaways have been nuggets of advice that have nothing to do with guitar technique. I can’t stress how meaningful this has been at times. Things like “Rule #1 for a guitar player: Never get in the way of the singer.” • Studying with Erick has helped me build up a rich library of exercises to practice with. Arpeggios, Scales, and licks. Right hand technique (which is much more important and much more difficult than I ever imagined), tasty chords and of course, songs. • Erick truly understands the theory behind every bar in a song and can articulate what is going on there. His understanding of music theory is vast. • One of the things I’m into is recording and often times my lessons are around problem solving with the recording process. My recordings have improved dramatically since I started collaborating with Erick on them. By my own choice, I’ve spent entire lessons just learning the ins and outs of some of the tools like Pro Logic. I can’t tell you how much time this has save me from fishing around on you-tube. • Lastly, we’ve been collaborating remotely via a program called zoom so I never even leave the house. This has a huge convenience factor and saves a bunch of commute time. It works pretty well to use zoom plus I have the added benefit of being able to record the sessions and review them later on. As I said earlier, picking the right teacher is a fork in the road critical decision to your development. I’ve had no regrets and am seriously loving the results. Bill Toner Tualatin, OR
I’ve been taking voice lessons on and off for over 20 years in 4 different states with many different instructors. Anya is perhaps the most gifted, knowledgeable and relatable instructor I’ve ever had and I would recommend her to anyone from beginner to advanced! Truly a positive experience in so many ways. So happy to have found her!
Irina is an Exceptional instructor who displays an enormous depth of music theory and the ability to bring out excellence in her students skill level! Truly a Professional and a pleasure to work with.
