I am a scientist who loves singing. I found Bulent Guneralp three years ago after moving to Boston for my PhD and searching for singing teachers online. His website detailing his experience and all the positive reviews made me consider him, and I am really happy that I did so. Mr. Guneralp is a unique teacher and human being. He is multi-talented yet very down-to-earth, he is very encouraging yet expects the best from you, constantly improves himself and his teaching methods, and is overall fun to work with. He doesn't only teach but also performs, so he knows what it is like to perform live and the expectations of stage life. I first started taking voice lessons 10 years ago, continued on and off, but did not perform in public until studying with Mr. Guneralp, who helped me overcome my stage fright and sing solo in a concert for the first time in 2016! His scientific teaching method which also uses certain visualizations helped me better understand and use my body as a vocal instrument. I believe not only my technical progress but my overall development as a singer gave me the confidence to sing for the first time in public. We have been working on arias and art songs in Italian, German, French, English and Turkish! My diction in these different languages has improved. I also learned a great deal of sight-singing, music theory and ear-training, areas in which I was not educated in the past. Recently I moved to Maryland, yet continue taking lessons from him remotely via Skype / FaceTime. I strongly recommend Mr. Guneralp to anyone, professional or amateur, interested in developing their vocal and musical skills.
Took lessons from Andy from 94' to 97'...I had been playing for ten years up to that point. He showed me things that gave me so many A-HA moments in my guitar playing.He also gave me the nickname 'hot licks'..because of my propensity for wanting to try to play fast all the time. He was very personable and patient...and funny. These lessons didn't only teach me new ideas that made my playing almost immediately better...these lessons also taught me how to approach learning. Hard to believe its already been 20 years!
Very flexible and understanding. Unfortunately, I had outside commitments that left my schedule a bit crazy and unpredictable, and Jessica always accommodate me ... However, I have yet to squeeze in a lesson, but I would highly recommend Jessica on professionalism alone, she's super sweet, excited about people's goals, and was willing to take on my idea for voice lessons, even though they were a little different (for public speaking).
John is very knowledgeable about music and made me feel comfortable starting voice lessons for the first time. Highly recommended.
I've been taking singing lessons with Cristina since 2015, and thanks to her method, I finally understood how to breath with my diaphragm, how to properly project my voice without pain, and enhance my stamina. She taught me also how to build a strong stage presence and we worked on developing my performance skills as well as how to face my stage fright. She coached me not just vocally but also psychologically, she is able to infuse a great positive energy and inspiration that boosted my motivation of achieving higher goals. I sang notes that I could never imagine i could sing, and I sang songs that I though might be too hard for me without Cristina's encouragement and belief. She helped me to increase my self-esteem and the belief that I can do anything with the right self-discipline, mindset and perseverance. Tiziana V.
Emily is a creative and skilled teacher that is able to transform singing lessons into a fun experience. Very good at providing individually tailored lessons, she does not burden students with unnecessary structure. Emily connects well with male and female students across all age groups. I can recommend Emily to everyone that is interested in improving/perfecting his/her singing skills.
I'm in my 80s and am taking jazz lessons from Joyce. She is a friend as well as a teacher. She shares her enthusiasm for music and teaches not just about playing the piano but also about the composers and the ways of personalizing my playing. Taking lessons from her has been a wonderful experience for me. I would recommend her to all age groups as she is so attuned to each person she is teaching. She's a special person.
At the age of 54 I decided to take up piano after many years of toying with the idea. I had no music bankground and didn't know a staccatto from a fortissimo. My daughter had been taking voice lessons from Lenae and when she had an opening I decided the time had come. I am thrilled that I did. I love playing piano and, although I don't have any particular talent for it, I am very pleased by how far I have come in two years. Lenae has been the perfect teacher. Lessons are relaxed and without pressure, and she moves at a pace that makes sense for me. She is ALWAYS pleasant and supportive.
She is the best! I am a cardiologist at Boston and our lessons during my lunch breaks are my sessions of meditation. The questionnaire (5 questions) that she gave me after our first meeting was brilliant. She understands me perfectly and she creates the greatest repertoire for me. After 6 months, I can say that we worked on anatomy, breathing techniques, singing quality, expanding my range, learning my voice and discovering my true voice with my favorite songs. Her professionalism put music to another level for me. I am having small gigs and enjoying being on stage!
I have been taking voice lessons with Katie once a week for more than two months now at the time of writing this review. In just two short months, I have noticed improvements in my overall vocal skills and I am still learning a lot from Katie. She is patient, encouraging and is a joy to work with. You do not have to have a prior interest in classical music to enjoy learning classical singing techniques from her. I find that I can always apply what I learned onto my own singing style. I am happy to have found Katie :)
I have been working with Gabe for the last three years. I started in college after never having taken voice lessons before. Gabe is always energetic and passionate in our lessons. You can tell he truly loves music and how it can help people express themselves. As a more reserved person it can be difficult to put emotion into the music, but Gabe always finds a way to not only instruct technique but to help you tap into the emotion of the piece. You obviously can't teach someone how to "feel" but Gabe is great at spurring you on to find the extra bit you may be holding back. He also finds a way to mix in some music theory and sight reading tips into the lessons. On top of that he's extremely flexible with his scheduling and offers very reasonable prices.
Wanted to take piano lessons, so I called the owner, Kris, and he made me feel very confident and comfortable in going with his studio. Charlie, my piano teacher, is very good. He's attentive, patient, and most importantly challenges me. Great experience so far. Highly recommended.
Mat Sunday is my violin teacher and as a beginner he is patient and very knowledgeable. I have learned how to read music in a short time of course I still have a lot to learn. In short Mat is a great Teacher! Debi Baker
Haley has been working with my teenage daughter for just over a year and she has been absolutely spectacular! She is a total professional with a vast knowledge and understanding of vocal technique and is also well versed and informed about a wide range of musical idioms. Her expertise combined with her student centered approach has really made her the perfect teacher and my daughter has never been more motivated about her voice lessons! I highly recommend Haley for all levels of instruction - you won’t be disappointed!
I began taking voice lessons with Ashley in the summer of 2016 when I decided to begin a new solo project. The idea of singing was quite intimidating to me, but my experience with Ashley has eradicated that intimidation. She is a patient and thorough teacher who utilizes technique-building exercises, as well as songs (which show the practical application of the exercises). I've enjoyed every lesson, I've always walked out feeling like I've understood each lesson, and I know I'm a better a singer now thanks to her. What more could I ask for?
He offers services that are professional,and very personalized! He makes his lesson plans geared toward my individual needs. Lastly, he has always been supportive of whatever I aspire to do. It is a pleasure to work with him as a former voice student and current piano student. I highly recommend him for any of his services!
Joyce is a lovely person whose knowledge of music is profound. We always have a great time a my lessons and I learn a lot.
Simona is my 5 year old daughter’s piano teacher. My daughter loves to go to her piano lessons because of Simona’s bubbly and friendly demeanor. My daughter has learned a lot from Simona. She now knows the difference between certain notes, the two different clefs and is still trying to master her sight reading skills. I love going to the lessons mostly because I get to hear Simona sing. That is a real treat! I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a piano or vocal teacher.
My son took beginner piano lessons from Fiona last year. He is a very sensitive boy and was nervous about learning an instrument for the first time, but Fiona put him at ease right away. She has a sweet and earnest teaching style, and explains new concepts in a way that's welcoming and easy to understand. I know her willingness to teach him whatever music he wanted to learn went a long way towards keeping his attention on the piano and away from the iPad. We always looked forward to our lessons with her!
Stephanie is very welcoming and comfortable. She is very encouraging and helpful when it comes to tips and tricks to help you improve and become more confident. She customizes her lesson to fit to your voice and how to better improve it. In my experience Stephanie has helped me be more open and comfortable with my voice. She has helped me reach new goals and be more confident using a broader vocal range.
Mr. Fred Delgizzo worked around my schedule for my first 30 minute guitar lesson. He was very willing to meet me where I'm at; a beginner when it comes to music and a complete stranger to the guitar. He is very friendly and patient with me. The only negative is that my fingers hurt, but I don't believe even the best of teachers can do anything about that. #waitingforcalouses
