We unfortunately only attended one of Bryan's drum lessons .(only because my four year old wouldn't practice). Bryan was great! He even had on Aladdin, upon us arriving which made my daughter extra comfortable. It was a great ice breaker for them to talk about. I would absolutely recommend Bryan to anyone needing drum lessons ages kids to adult.
Jeremy has exceeded my expectations in every way. The lessons have challenged me while at the same time given me the guidance to make real progress. Not only would I recommend him to friends and family. I already have.
Really enjoyed the first lesson. Jordan had great feedback and ways to help vocal issues.
Minami taught piano to my 5-year old for about a year. I wasn't sure if my daughter was actually capable of learning much about music yet, but Minami did a great job getting her to the point of doing a little recital of a simple song, and I could tell there that my child had learned a fair amount and also had a good time doing it. Ability to teach in Japanese was also a plus for us. By default I think Minami doesn't push kids as young as that too hard. We didn't push our daughter to practice much between lessons and Minami didn't push for that either. But I think she can give students more strict assignments to practice if the parents so desire.
Scott has an incredible ability to tap into his student's skill-set and transform them entirely. With his vast and vibrant musical background in vocal performance, composition, recording, and production in various genres of music, he provides an extensive and dynamic experience for his students. Scott also has a deep understanding of proper vocal health and such knowledge extends to the techniques and exercises in which he conducts in his lessons. He can take voices in several directions, stretching students' abilities to new lengths. Scott is truly one of a kind and his lessons extend well past vocal training, into situations that apply to everyday life. Scott has been pivotal in shaping my musicianship and musical identity and I strongly recommend his vocal training lessons.
I worked with Dr. Frazer right before my college auditions, and it made a world of difference for me. Before her, I hadn't ever taken lessons and just relied on natural talent which can only take you so far. Not only did I get accepted into both of the schools I applied to, I also received generous scholarships and an offer to audition for the opera before arriving on campus. I still use many of the techniques she's taught me to this day, and think back fondly of my time with her. If she was still in my state, I would definitely be taking lessons from her again. She is an amazing teacher, and made me comfortable but also challenged me at the same time. If you want lessons, look no further than her studio!
Started taking singing lessons with Maddy as a complete beginner. She's been so kind, patient, and supportive and is wonderful about explaining how the voice works. I highly recommend her!!
I have been studying Vocals with Sami for 2 years. He is an amazing instructor, he is patient, kind and a blast to learn with. Every lesson is designed for me based on my progression from the week prior. He is always available to speak even when I don't have lessons to offer additional help. Thank you Sami for helping me become a better singer.
We just started our daughter's lessons but Cayce is a well organized and professional who loves her craft. She has been very helpful in answering our questions and determining our short and long-term goals. Her website is very well done and a great aid in tracking our daughter's progress, lessons, and for communication.
Vannessa has been providing voice lessons to my 10 year old for a month now and the student is enjoying them immensly.
I began taking piano lessons from Dorothy Harwood several years ago as a beginner in my late fifties. She does a terrific job with adult beginners. She is patient and understands our learning curve. I would recommend her for children or adults.
She had an instant connection to my granddaughter and she got a lot out of the first lesson
Anna is very knowledgable and explains techniques clearly. We have a lot of fun at our lessons, but at the same time quite a bit of progress is made.
Love this school! It's been great experience for both of my kids. We've been taking piano and guitar lessons for last 4 years
My experience with Merlyn's Music Studio was absolutely amazing. Merlyn Ahern is a jewel, and hands down the best music instructor that I've ever trained with. She has an impeccable ear for music, and she never fails to bring out the best in each of her students. I couldn't have imagined training with anyone other than her to prepare myself for my performance in the 2015 Miss Black USA Scholorship Pageant. Not only did I receive a standing ovation from the audience for my talent performance, I also received a score of 136 out of 140 from the judges!!! I couldn't have done it without her. She is the BEST!!! -De'Vaughnn Williams, Miss. Black Washington USA 2015 & 2016.
I enjoy seeing my students improve themselves, I believe in fun learning but I also think that their improvement is part of their discipline.

We offer voice lessons for beginner or advanced students. Perfect your audition songs; find new ones; work on your technique, and save your voice! Emphasis is on basic skills for the beginner, or nuanced corrections for the experienced student. Read our testimonials below: From a parent: "Just wanted to mention that S. loves her voice lessons. B. and I both think her voice has already improved! ...We're very pleased so far." S.K. From students: "Kathy is hands-down one of the best teachers I have ever had. She is positive, patient and extremely proficient at her craft. Through Kathy's teaching methods, I was finally able to site read and harmonize and conquer my biggest fear...auditioning! I have always felt Kathy was not only my teacher/coach, but also my personal cheerleader who gave me the confidence to find my voice. I cannot recommend her highly enough." A.S. "I learned so much from Kathy. She is a very knowledgeable, professional and fun vocal coach to work with." A.H. "Kathy zeroed right in on proper vocal technique, proper breathing and diction. Vocal fatigue is now a thing of the past for me. I am forever grateful and still go to her for the occasional refresher course. She is a teacher that will bring out your true voice. Go to her!" J.M. "Kathy's positive energy is so contagious that she not only helped me improve my vocal skills but also greatly impacted my outlook and confidence in all other aspects of life. She has been an invaluable mentor to me over the years, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to hone their musical talents!" M.M. "Kathy is my diva voice teacher because of her amazing voice. She is always extremely encouraging, teaches great technique, and is an overall awesome individual!" G.N. "I have been working with Kathy for years and feel lucky that a friend referred me to her. Kathy has been patiently bringing back my voice after a long hiatus from singing. She is positive and encouraging while continually motivating me to improve. Her enthusiasm for teaching, her ability to bring out the best in my voice, and her joyous attitude toward life make her a treasure." R.M. "Kathy was refered to me by the music director at B.C.; he had a long list of music teachers, but he said Kathy was the only one he would recommend for me. "I was really scared going into my first lesson, and it showed by how shaky my voice sounded, but right away, Kathy was warm and encouraging. She made me feel welcome with her warm smile and kind words, but I also appreciated that she was firm and wouldn't let me get away with doing anything else short of my best. She always made me want to try harder. "Kathy has been, by far, my favorite voice teacher. I admire her amazing musical talent, her kindness and her patience. I am thankful for the way she, little by little, help my self-esteem grow." Y.L. "Kathleen Roche-Zujko is a wonderful vocal teacher. I enjoy each of her lessons and always look forward to come to the lesson. Kathleen's vocal techniques really work. She will teach you how to correctly sing your favorite song and learn sight reading. She does it in a fun and creative way that makes you want to learn and practice. I can't wait for my daughter to grow up, so she can take the vocal lessons from Kathleen as well." A.H.
Learning to sing is fun! You can do it. Even if you might think that you can't sing, I bet you can! It's all about patience, listening, and practice. All voice lessons are tailored to the student's abilities and interests. I will work with your individual vocal needs by developing an appropriate vocal technique. This means releasing the sound, breathing, getting an effective, efficient tone, and extending the range where necessary. We will explore various vocal styles, musical theory, and improvisation too. I teach a broad range of styles from musical theatre, folk, Celtic, rock, contemporary, jazz, and some classical. My students vary in age and ability. The foundation of good singing is the same for all styles. I do not accept just anyone as a student. I prefer to teach people who really want to learn and have a passion for what they do. How long will this take? Well, that depends on your goals. Students ages 5-11 usually schedule a 30 minute lesson, while students age 12 through adult may feel that a 45 or 60 minute lesson will do the trick. Just as for any other instrument, weekly lessons are essential. If a student is really motivated to train their voice, a regular lesson time and regular home practice is necessary to hear and feel results. What are your goals? Having goals for voice lessons is so helpful! Do you want to audition for musicals, community theater or college acceptance auditions? Do you want to sing for friends and family or have dreams of going professional? Do you want to inspire confidence within yourself to just sing out listening to the radio? All of these goals are attainable! I will work with you to reach your goals! You can do this! It's all a part of us! Students may bring material they wish to work on, and I will recommend music that would be appropriate for their voice type. New students may start at any time during the year. Tuition payments are made monthly. Rates are $115 a month for 4 - 30 minute lessons, $173 for 4 - 45 minute lessons and $230 for 4 - 60 minute lessons. Students are required to purchase their own books.
