We bought voice lessons for our son-in-law who has never sung before. He loves his lessons! We heard Jesse in concert. He sang an hour-long series of broadway hits (one of his many genres). He has a wonderful voice and range and is a great pianist. Really relates well to audiences and students
I have been in choirs and in various other musical settings for 12 years and have experienced many different teaching styles. When I initially started individual voice lessons, I was with an instructor who had a "one teaching method, fits all" approach to teaching. After about 4 months of lessons, I gave up and began looking for a new instructor... someone who would identify my weak points and help me develop a stronger, more balanced voice. After many, many initial interviews, I was very discouraged... until I met Emily. Emily invests in her students. She came up with a daily vocal routine specifically tailored to me and remained in constant communication with me about any questions I had. Not only is she continuously helping me identify my struggles and build technique but she also has taken the time to show me that I have many options of making it as a serious musician. Because of her, I am in the process of re-evaluating my whole academic plan. I am so grateful to have found such an amazing, talented, and skilled instructor! I am learning so much from her continuously!
My daughter is 12 years old and absolutely loves working with Judy Malings for her voice lessons. It's been over 1 year now and I've seen incredible singing improvement and on-stage confidence in her. Judy is talented, organized, and truly cares about maximizing the voice sessions for her students benefit. Judy's singing showcase events are very professional and fun. They're a wonderful display for parents to see the amazing progress in their kids singing talent. Judy Malings is a great mentor for music and voice!
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.
My 4-year-old son has been taking lessons with Deanna for the past 6 months. I am a preschool teacher. I was immediately impressed by how Deanna was able to connect with my child and work with him with such calmness and ease. My son tried many different classes and has had many different instructors. Deanna has by far been his favorite instructor and he is always excited and ready for class. The program she uses is wonderful, it introduces children to sequencing and patterns, fine motor skills and development and so much more. I highly highly recommend classes with Deanna. We love her!
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.
I have been waiting to start voice lessons for awhile but never knew where to start. Reverb set me up with a great teacher and pointed me to a beginner package. I am on my fourth lesson with Ariel and could not be happier with my progress. Thanks Ariel and Reverb !
We contacted Nyssa about getting a voice-lesson gift certificate for a Christmas present for our daughter. She has been delightful to work with in setting up the surprise. We can't wait to give it to her and for her to start taking her lessons.
Heidi is a gifted singer and vocal coach. Our daughter has had the pleasure of taking voice lessons from Heidi over a period of years and has blossomed under her supervision. Since studying under Heidi our daughter has been presented with many wonderful opportunities including being accepted into a magnet academy for children that are gifted musically, she has auditioned for many musical venues, made state choir and won state in solo for her age group.
Heidi teaches creatively, uses positive reinforcement and is highly encouraging....she never gets short with her students and always has effective solutions to offer them when they hit vocal road blocks, enabling them to grow.
We highly recommend Heidi to anyone in search of an expert for voice lessons in the Portland, Oregon metro area.

I took voice lessons with Joannah for over two years while she had a studio in Boston. My vocal range, support, tone, and expression all improve. She freely shared her enthusiasm and love of music. I highly recommend Joannah!
Helen, was AMAZING, she taught my 6 yr daughter her first piano lesson. We were going to try out a few different teachers, but after meeting her, I have no interest going anywhere else. Thank you for being so friendly and so talented! <3 A few things that were important to me were, 1. She could connect with my 6 year old. 2. That she could teach syllabus. 3. That she has opportunities for her students to perform during the year. She met all three of those. :)
My Daughter went from never playing an instrument to being proficient on her trumpet in 8 months. Her band teacher is so impressed. Much of her understanding of music comes from her voice and trumpet lessons with Ms. Valardi. She is branching out into piano this summer and has even attempted to write her own solo. A music teacher that understands the excitement of a student and balances that with foundation is a wonderful thing to find. Ms Valardi is just that.
Anya is an amazing teacher. She has great stories and multiple ways of explaining things. She creates a great learning environment for learning and has helped increased my confidence (which is why I wanted voice lessons). She has also successfully convinced me that I am actually a soprano and can hit notes I would have never thought possible. I always look forward to our lessons and working with her.
Ryan gives drum lessons to my 10 year old son, Josh. Josh has a blast! Ryan is technically a great drummer and instructor, but still connects with Josh like no other instructor has. I highly recommend Ryan.
