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.

I have taken voice lessons before, however, never enjoyed the experience as I have with Momma Debbie Kirkland. Momma Debbie has a warm, fun, exciting, inviting, loving, motherly and caring spirit. She is an awesome teacher and singer. I felt major improvements in my breathing and voice dynamics. It has truly been a life changing experience that I will treasure forever and ever. This woman is The Bomb.Com!!!!!!

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 started taking voice lessons for the first time at the age of 53 from Sam. My only other musical experiences were singing in a church choir as a teenager and taking piano lessons for a couple of years when I was in middle school. I chose Sam because of his willingness to accept different types of voices and his terrific and positive reviews. I have never questioned my choice. When I started with Sam, my voice was weak. I could basically carry a tune, but definitely not in a public setting and definitely not one that was outside of the middle-of-the-road range. I took lessons so I could feel more confident in my singing ability and improve my voice. Sam started by teaching me how to breath while singing. I’ll admit that it was hard work and not the most exciting, but it has made a huge difference in my ability. My range has been broadened and my voice is much stronger than when I began 8 months ago. During that time we have worked on music theory, rhythm, harmony, different types of music, etc. The key for me is that I have always found Sam very patient and encouraging yet at the same time mindful of the technical expertise needed to improve one’s voice. I highly recommend him for someone like me and definitely for anyone who has a more natural musical talent!

My son has thoroughly enjoyed his voice lessons. Not only is he receiving great advice to make his voice the best it can be, he's also getting advice on how to prepare for auditions and pick the right song for his voice.

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.

Ben Schwabb/physics & engineering tutor is a real professional: knowledgable, concise, thorough, and presents a well-planned lesson each time. He helped my high schooler pull up his physics grade dramatically and pre-taught an electrical engineering course to my college-age son to get a jumpstart on his fall class. Alex/director is extremely responsive, provides quality tutors quickly, and stays in contact to ensure client satisfaction. Every company should operate this way.

I am so glad I found 4Singers Voice Lessons with Tracy Hamlin. I was in need of some vocal coaching for an audition, with limited time to prepare. Tracy managed to help me work through both songs with ease. She helped me feel completely prepared and more confident than when I first started lessons with her. She is a Godsend and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting to learn or improve their vocal skills.

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!

EXCELLENT VOICE TEACHER: I’ve been studying with James McCully for almost a year and have seen a vast improvement in my vocal technique. I’m a lawyer by trade, but I’ve always wanted to develop my singing voice so I started lessons in my 30s. I’ve had a couple of voice teachers in the past, and while they helped me develop my voice, James is taking me to a whole new level. Through my study with James, I can more easily access my top notes -- a must for tenors -- and I am developing strength and ring. I also feel more confident with my singing due to his caring teaching style and his ability to readily address technical issues. His selection of repertoire is thoughtful and reflects a deep understanding and love of music as well as what would work for auditions. He’s also a wonderful piano player, so you have the benefit of a great voice teacher and a skilled accompanist. I always look forward to lessons with James, and I would highly recommend him to any student who is looking to improve his or her technique in a supportive environment.

Robert taught my teenage son vocal lessons at a time his voice was changing- not an easy feat. He focused on head voice and ways to stretch his range without damaging his vocal chords. He even made house calls when we asked for drop-in vocal assistance before a big audition- what a nice guy! Always on time (even early!) and we definitely felt we got our money's worth. Robert maximized every minute he was teaching.

She is fantastic! She is patient, funny, and made my daughter feel comfortable. Doc as she likes to be called is a wealth of knowledge and applies scenarios to real life circumstances that my Julia can relate too. She is hard working as she give her full attention to the lessons. My daughter looks up to her and appreciates her encouragement, support and sense of humor. She is a gme and a true find!

Isaac was a fantastic teacher!! I’ve been taking lessons from different teachers for years. He is by far, the best music instructor!! I ended up liking my voice lessons so much, that I took piano as well. It’s really rare to find a teacher that can do more the one instrument, and even rarer to find one who can do it that well. I ended up staying with him for 5 years until he left. He gets my highest recommendation! -Ana
