I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.
Tona is an excellent voice teacher -- my son's range has expanded an octave in just 5 lessons and he is singing with much more confidence. The price is reasonable.
I am having an incredible experience working with Debbie Kirkland. What a pro! I have only had a couple lessons, but she has been so patient helping a novice such as myself. Debbie is big on technique, and her comprehensive approach (even getting me down on a mat to show me proper breathing and placement) shows her commitment to her students. I feel like the foundation I am building will serve me well as I progress in my lessons. Even though it’s challenging and frustrating at times, I’m excited every time I go for my lesson. Debbie’s enthusiasm and passion for her craft make it enjoyable, and I’m grateful I found her and look forward to continuing my training under her direction.
Brett was extremely flexible in being able to provide us a timeframe for piano lessons for our daughter, responded back quickly to emailed questions, and my daughter adored her piano tutor. We're really excited to get her started in weekly lessons.
Maddie is without a doubt the best vocal teacher you will come across. After only a few months of lessons, I was singing like a new person. I feel confident that I have gotten top notch training and have the confidence I need to be successful in the musical theatre industry. I came in with some vocal issues (straining, fatigue and bad habits) and Maddie gave me tricks to make sure I was singing healthily and in a way that I could sustain. Not the mention she is the sweetest, kindest person you'll meet. I am forever greatful for Maddie and the tools she has given me. If you are looking for a vocal teacher, you can't find someone better than Maddie.
My daughter has been taking voice lessons with Jenni for the last few years, and has made an incredible amount of progress during that time. Jenni also makes the lessons fun, and my daughter really looks forward to the lessons each week.
My teenage daughter has had several lessons with Orla and we have found her to be professional, kind and extremely knowledgeable about mechanics of the voice as instrument. She brings her enthusiasm and warmth to each lesson and my daughter very much enjoys working with her. In the few lessons that they've had so far, we have seen improvement in both voice technique and comfort of performance.
Brendan was very professional, kind and helpful with my daughter's voice lessons.
I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Jim for about 9 years now and vocal lessons with him for 2. Since we’ve first started lessons Jim has always been a true professional: always early or on time, helpful, hard worker, etc. More importantly, however, he genuinely cares about his students far more than any teacher I’ve ever met. Over the years, Jim has not only become a great friend of my family but really a part of our family, and a short review cannot begin to describe how amazing Jim is as a guitar and vocal teacher.
Our daughter, 13, has been taking voice lessons with Keely for almost a year, and has had a terrific experience. Keely has taken the time to get to know our daughter, her strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, and she makes effective use of the lesson time, finding music our daughter enjoys (musical theater), as well as challenging her with music she might not otherwise have been exposed to. Keely is very encouraging, abounding in patience, and a lot of fun to work with. Our daughter loves her lessons!
Carol is a wonderful voice teacher full of encouragement and wisdom. She has worked with me on specific goals and has implemented her knowledge and experience to help me attain my goals. Carol is extremely personable and a joy to work with. I know she has helped many succeed in whatever facet they needed and I highly recommend her to other people seeking voice lessons!
I have completed four lessons with Crystal at M Institute for the Arts. I found the online booking system works well, and my lessons begin promptly. The classes are hosted in a nice location in Georgetown, and I have found Crystal to be a very encouraging and patient teacher. Looking forward to continuing!
Senobia provides great voice lessons to my child. She focuses on developing his musicianship no just his voice. Her voice lessons and singing is all my son talks about. Never a dull moment for any of us.
Nicolas is an excellent teacher, he is diligent, patient and works well with children. Nicolas taught voice lessons to my daughter Alison and over the course of two months we saw major improvement in Alison’s performance. I would recommend Nicolas to any parent seeking to help their child in voice lessons and further music advancement. Nicolas being a well rounded individual, is well fluent in two languages and has years of music expertise. His excellent background has proved him to be well qualified for any career in the music and arts. Nicolas has brought his experience to children in Madagascar as well as warming their hearts through music and the arts.
Max is a consummate professional. His grasp of theory and vocal knowledge is impressive. He listens intently, is nonjudgmental, instructs with care and caters lessons to your needs. I look forward to a long term coaching relationship.
Kevin has been awesome. Right from hour one, he had me advancing my skill level at drumming. Not sure who was more enthusiastic, me or him! Fabulous teacher, good guy, and a talented musician.
Emma is an excellent voice teacher! My daughter adores working with her - her voice lesson is the highlight of her week. Emma focuses on many aspects of singing and performance and works with her students in a very focused way. My daughter is learning a tremendous amount from her. And they have a ton of fun! I highly recommend her.
My experience with Mr. Penney is unparalleled and unequal with respect to any other voice teacher I've ever had. I thought a longtime voice teacher was the best until she passed away and I had to find a new teacher. Then I found Mr. Penney and I've never looked back. Everyone noticed a difference in my voice once I started lessons with him. He hears things in your voice like no one else and he is able to translate that into advice and guidance that enables his students of all ages to reach their potential and their goals.
My children are enjoying piano lessons with Harry and are progressing well. Harry has been accommodating of our schedule and works well with our kids. They are looking forward to the October recital.
My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Toni for several months. I love that Toni comes to my house to teach, so that I can stay home and work on other projects during her lessons. Toni is extremely reliable, prompt, and responsive. She is very kind and patient, my daughter loves having her come and looks forward to her lessons. She always leaves a clear practice plan, so that my daughter can practice on her own and knows exactly what to do. I highly recommend piano lessons with 10 Fingers Music!
Rob is a great voice coach. He started to work with my then 9 year-old son Alexis two years ago. Alexis progressed tremendously both technically and artistically. He just released an EP of 4 songs that were written by Rob (see BLUE by Alex Throne). I highly recommend Rob to anyone that wants to improve his/her singing skills, because he is a voice technician (he reads about everything published on this topic) and a practician (he is the lead singer of ThrillKiller) that can demonstrate what he teaches (he has an amazing voice with a wide range).
