ShaDana Jones, Vocalist (R&B/Soul) Ive been singing since I was 3 years old. I really dont remember not singing. A few months ago, after I started having difficulty doing the things (vocally) that I had always been able to do, I went to an ENT, Dr. Roger D. Tuggle (ENT) who also referred me to a speech Pathologist Dr. Sheread. They discovered that I had vocal nodes. I felt horrible because I thought I would have to undergo surgery and its not 100% guaranteed that I would be able to sing again. Anyway, Dr. Tuggle prescribed medication, but also told me to see a vocal coach. I discovered Damon K. Clark through a coworker and started taking lessons with him. After studying with Damon for just 2 months, I started to see improvement in my vocal ability. So yesterday I went back to the ENT and speech pathologist for a follow up. Dr. Sheread saw my vocal chords and said, No need to keep seeing me. Continue to see your voice teacher. She smiled and continued, "I love him. I'm glad you found him." Well, Im glad I found him too! If I had the money to make Damon K. Clark a Gold or Platinum plaque, it would read Greatest Vocal Coach! Take lessons from Damon K. Clark, ya'll. It's so worth the money and the investment in yourself!
My daughter had private lessons in vocal music with Ms. Stephanie Derrick for almost a year. The experience was absolutely rewarding and far exceeded our expectations. The excellent instruction she received prepared her to get accepted into a performing arts academy! Ms. Stephanie is a well educated, accomplished and highly trained musician not to mention, very professional and personable. My daughter enjoyed going for her lessons as Ms. Stephanie always made it fun and not feel like work. I would highly recommend her teaching instruction to anyone looking to get a solid foundation in musical principles or advance to the next level in performing. Ms. Derrick is the one who can get you there! We look forward to the opportunity to train with her again in the near future.
Our son had been taking piano lessons for 2 years prior to taking lessons with Phil. He has learned more in this past year than in the two previous years combined. Our son enjoys Phil's sense of humor and teaching style. We are looking forward to another great year! Thank you Phil
My husband and I signed up for voice lessons with Edward approximately 7 months ago, after a lifetime of singing in choirs and for personal enjoyment, but without any professional coaching. Our objective was to improve our singing ability, gain better breath control, and expand our range. From the first lesson we were "hooked" by Edward's approach, enthusiasm, encouragement, and technique. We have seen steady progress, and have learned more in 7 months of weekly lessons than we both have over decades of singing! As busy professionals (ages 55 & 60) it has been hard to maintain a schedule of lessons and find the time to practice, but the sheer enjoyment of it has been so personally rewarding that we keep working at it, with Edward right there offering constant guidance and support. He has stretched us to go beyond what we thought we could achieve, and although we're not professionals on stage with our name in lights, we marvel at the improvement in our singing ability. Most importantly, Edward has given us back what we had both lost - a love for singing. He is truly a gifted teacher, with a warm and gracious personality to go with it. You will love working with him, and no matter what your level of singing ability is (from "none" to professional level) he will bring out the best natural voice in you that you never knew you had! We cannot recommend Edward highly enough.
I learned more from Moira in 1 lesson than in months of lessons I had years ago. VERY knowledgeable and a wonderful teacher!
Mark is an extremely talented musician and exceptionally gifted instructor. He is patient, but still motivates his students to progress in their craft. He encourages his students to step out of their comfort zones with semi-annual recitals in order to make them better musicians. The lessons are entertaining and you go away every week feeling motivated to perform your best even when you are practicing at home all by yourself.
Dr. Susan Carter possess a strong work ethic that embodies certain principles that guides students work behavior, leading them to produce high-quality work consistently and without the prodding. Carter has given her students many performing oppprtunities, along with building a strong and positive relationship with her students. I have really enjoyed working aside with Dr. Susan Carter. She has made an impact on the program, the staff and most importantly, the students!
I started taking dance lessons with Chris a few weeks ago, and it has been an excellent and fun learning experience! He is well-versed in teaching all ballroom dances (smooth & rhythm), combining technique with practical application. His flexible and easygoing teaching style, ability to simplify and break things down, in addition to his great sense of humor, makes learning to dance easy and enjoyable. I learn something new every week and always look forward to the next lesson!
I've been taking lessons, competing and preforming as a Pro-Am student with Natalja for several years and I can highly recommend her for knowledge and expertise in Ballroom and C&W Dancing. Be it from learning to dance, coaching, competing, or performing with her, her comprehension, insight and knowledge has educated me and help me grow as a dancer. Along with her talent and dedication to her students, she has an energetic personality fostering an environment of learning and improving oneself.
Pat Brown is a most dedicated teacher to all of her students. I had a few voice lessons in college, but I did not improve very much. Having always been the accompanist, I was ready to learn how to sing, and Pat taught me so well that I was ready to go out and teach privately myself after 4 years of lessons with her. In all I took lessons from Pat for about 12 years. She has the experience and education that anyone would want in a voice and piano teacher.
Prof. Snyder is one of my favorite coach i had in Indiana University South Bend. He touch me so much , made me understand music in a different way, made me love how to conduct . He is an amazing person an amazing musician, and an amazing coach! I never forget his lessons . and i am so thankful that i met him .
I would highly recommend Theodore Rulfs, as he is an outstanding voice teacher! I am an older singer, and I am extremely grateful for his expertise, professionalism, and support. I am now able to significantly improve my middle voice register, which is often difficult for a soprano. Ted is amazingly knowledgeable about the details of voice production! He patiently imparts major concepts of how to sing with lyrical, beautiful tones, and most voice teachers are clueless about the art and science of beautiful heart-felt singing. The lessons are truly exceptional !! Sue F.
My son, Eric has been taking lessons from Mariah for the last two years. He had previous classical piano lessons, but wanted to learn Jazz piano. In just a few lessons she taught him enough to pass an audition for Jazz piano at Booker T Washington HS for the Performing Arts. He is presently taking vocal lessons and has taught him ways to increase his vocal range as in how to access the high register of his chest range without straining. I would highly recommend her to someone that is looking for an excellent vocal coach.
He's one of the most passionate dancers/teachers I've ever met! He's fun to work with and he has a lot to offer! He's an amazing dancer/teacher and that I'd gladly take his class any day. Also, as a dance teacher myself, I highly recommend him.
My granddaughter, Barbara started her first piano lesson two weeks ago and simply loves it. The owner, Heather is extremely nice, patient and professional. I am expecting great results from this wonder company.
I've worked with Nadia Dosal for about 2 years as a dancer, and she's absolutely spectacular. She has taught me how to tap dance just within a month in a half which a difficult task to do. Nadia has patience with her dancers an doesn't mind going the extra mile to help you succeed. And that's what impressed me the most about my dance experience. Oh did I mention that she has a MA in Fine Arts/Dance from the University of Houston so you know she's got you covered. You'll have a great experience with her.
Lori's a wonderful teacher and I have greatly enjoyed my lessons with her so far. She's supportive and encouraging. I took singing lessons, because I just like to sing and wanted to have a stronger voice, so I can become more comfortable singing in public (if it was ever needed). I'm in my seven month of lessons and I plan on continuing on, as I am now interested in performing on stage.
Bill Dailey brings a lifetime of gospel music leadership, performance, and teaching to the vocal coaching I am receiving from him in his home studio.
I have been studying ballroom dance under David Conner for over 3 years. Since that time, I have done 4 showcases at different venues, 2 competitions and will compete again at the end of May 2018. Mr. Conner is an outstanding dance instructor in that he cares about his students learning the different ballroom dances in the correct manner. He teaches not only the steps but also “the why and the how”. He cares that the student is properly prepared to compete, to perform, to dance at one’s wedding or out socially—whatever the goal, he is the best at helping you succeed. He has a wide range of dance experience. I highly recommend Mr. Conner and Conner Dancesport if you are interested in learning to ballroom dance or any of the other areas such as ballet and tap (just a few) that he can teach. Happy Dancing!
