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.
Fantastic experience working with Janet. My 13-year-old daughter is the student. She's never had a singing lesson and no one would call her a natural and she lacked confidence she needed to put herself out there for auditions. After just her first lesson with Janet she had a sense of confidence about her voice that I had never seen in her. Janet asked me to come to pick up my daughter a few minutes early just so that I would have a chance to see how she did. With Janet's accompaniment on the piano, she started singing the song she was working toward auditioning with. Ok... I admit I can be an emotional guy about my daughters, but I was crying after her first verse. In just two more lessons, she called me excitedly while I was traveling to tell me that she "had a break through". I don't know what else I need to love Janet as a teacher for my daughter.
Barbara was a fantastic musical theater/vocal coach for my 11 year old daughter. In just two vocal lessons she helped my daughter not only technically improve but also lifted her confidence in her teaching style and approach! I highly recommend her- she provides strong feedback and developmentally tailored approach to singing and performance. Technically she is outstanding providing a great foundation for young singers!
Jordan is friendly, professional, and supportive. She uses music that I'm passionate about in order to teach the skills and fine tune technique. If you are thinking about singing for the first time or hoping to expand your present skills, Jordan is the right teacher for you!
For nearly a decade I have toyed with the idea of taking singing lessons, but just recently did I finally work up the courage to do it. I have always enjoyed singing but never liked how I sounded or had the confidence to perform in front of other people. Now I have been taking lessons from Andrea since the start of the year and in just the first couple of lessons I began to hear an immediate improvement. As I continue to work with Andrea I am discovering a whole new voice that I never knew I had! I look forward to continuing to develop and improve my singing abilities with her. She is fun to work with, has an intuitive feel for finding the right techniques to help each student and also manages to sneak in some great all around life advice and encouragement as well. One of the most profound things she has taught me in our lessons had nothing to do with singing at all!
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!!
Minami has provided vocal and piano lessons for our tween daughter for several months. My daughter loves the instruction that Minami gives- a great combo of fun and learning. She is always positive and considerate with her feedback to the student while producing the results needed. I love the convenience of her home lessons as well as her prompt communication.
I have worked with Jeremy Shilley for 4+ years. Throughout that time, he has helped me to grow as a vocalist, both in my technical capability and in my breadth of repertoire. He is very astute in determining music that is well suited to my voice and guiding me in selecting pieces for performance and audition that will highlight my vocal range. Even with a busy work schedule and when I moved out of the area, he was able to be very flexible in creating a lesson time on Skype that was mutually agreeable. I highly recommend Jeremy Shilley for private voice lessons whether you are a professional performer working to improve your skills or an amateur studying for enjoyment.
Vannessa has been providing voice lessons to my 10 year old for a month now and the student is enjoying them immensly.
Having been into singing for around 5 years now, I've found out about a market of products created for the purpose of studying the art of singing at home. Being a serious student of singing, I decided to invest in one of these programs to supplement my lessons. Singing Success got me absolutely nowhere. After a couple of weeks, I completely stopped using it, because there was no direction. Around 2 years later, I decided to try out CVT. It offers a book, along with recorded exercises. It was much better, but it still felt like something was missing. How was I to make sure I was doing everything right? The forum was dead. I had been studying singing for a few years, and this was something still on my mind; not having somebody ensure you were practicing the program properly. I cannot imagine how much less confident an absolute beginner might have felt, facing the same thing. Around a year later, I stumbled upon The Modern Vocalist Forum. Observed Robert Lunte provide very detailed feedback on several submissions by aspiring singers. I was pretty impressed with how things were broken down. I had already known about The Four Pillars of Singing, for a while, and I thought it wasn't for me. After seeing an explanation on how it could be used to transform your head voice into something that sounded strong, while still retaining full use of falsetto, I was intrigued enough to take the plunge. After a few months of ownership, I have absolutely no regrets. The Four Pillars of Singing is the only system out there that offers a comprehensive book, video tutorials, and an active forum, where anything can be clarified by the man himself. You can tell this is something made by somebody who cares. It's a completely foolproof method. Whether you're an absolute beginner who desperately needs guidance, or like me, you've been at it a little while, and you're looking for a way to take things to the next level. There's enough depth and science involved in this that even a voice expert can appreciate this system. As an owner of The Four Pillars of Singing, you're not just the owner of a vocal program that you can use at home; you are a student of TVS methodology, and you will no longer be left to figure things out on your own. It's the closest thing to having a voice coach without actually signing up for lessons. It's all laid out right in front of you, and there's nothing left to do but practice.
I have always loved to sing, but was almost completely unable to sing in front of others out of fear of humiliation. Taking singing lessons with Scott has changed my relationship with both my voice and myself. I have gained confidence in my singing abilities and have even begun to sing in front of others (and surprisingly my friends and family are impressed not mortified!). Scott has a wealth of knowledge which has helped me to develop my vocal abilities to levels I never thought possible! Most importantly, Scott's presence and patience in working with me and my fears has been nothing short of therapeutic! I am tremendously grateful for his help in allowing me to be better able to express myself through singing.
We have just begun singing lessons and she is super great. I am having a good time AND she really knows what she is doing. Her technical knowledge is exactly what works for me!!
I had the privilege to work with Suzanna in Spring 2010 in the opera scenes at Holy Names University where she was stage director. Suzanna is so wonderful to work with. She is patient and so knowledgeable about different aspects of the theatre, such as stage movement and creating a character that's believable. I have been studying voice privately for over 10 years and still find myself learning more about the art of singing every time I work with Suzanna. Whether you are a beginner new to singing or an advanced singer, I highly recommend Suzanna.
M.Alex is an excellent voice instructor! I spent years trying to sing, never fully realizing that my technique was way off and potentially damaging. He's been very patient with me as I've worked on re-training my voice, applying just enough pressure to keep me motivated without causing me undue stress. His calm demeanor and sense of humor help make our lessons relaxing and fun, yet he balances that well with a professional determination to get results. He knows a lot about vocal anatomy, which allowed him to customize his approach to my circumstances, devising routines and exercises that have enabled me to overcome the bad singing habits I've developed. Yet he also knows enough to know the boundaries of his own knowledge: after hearing certain qualities in my voice, he recommended that I work with a speech therapist, as well. This was a very wise recommendation, and my continued work with him was even more effective as a result of the support of the speech therapist. M.Alex is knowledgeable, flexible, patient, and professional. I highly recommend him!
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.
I have been working with Convery Studios for about two years now and my voice has vastly improved thanks to her teaching. I would highly recommend the service for anyone interested in improving their singing and wanting to become a more well rounded singer.
I've been taking voice lessons with Christine for a few months now, and it's been an amazing experience. I'm a total and absolute beginner, but Christine knows perfectly well how to teach beginners (or people at any level for that matter, since she has a degree in music education). In a few months we've already seen noticeable improvement in my voice. Christine's been helping me develop the correct vocal technique right from the beginning, so that I don't develop bad habits that are difficult to correct later. She is also an outstanding teacher - she immediately notices/hears my mistakes, no matter how subtle, and corrects me right away. Or if she notices me getting tired, she stops the lesson right away, even if I don't notice it myself. These are very important things for a beginner in my opinion. She also shows me many tricks (both physical and psychological) that I can use to make my voice do the right thing. And she has a variety of exercises that help with different aspects of developing your voice. Finally, she's a great person to work with - very cool-minded, always smiling/laughing/joking, never yells or gets angry, calmly moves on to something else if one thing doesn't work, and has the rare and wonderful ability to point out mistakes without making you feel bad. She is also a very good listener - always willing to answer my questions/comments. At a personal level, she's a fun and interesting person to get to know, and talk to. I think everybody can benefit from voice lessons, even if you think you're no good at singing. And I think Christine is perfect for the job. I highly recommend her!
I have been taking voice lessons with Heather since the end of March, and it has been a wonderful experience. Heather is a dedicated teacher who is always considering the way I learn and trying to incorporate new approaches to help me gain mastery. She provides lots of extra support outside of lessons as well if I have questions. The notes she provides after each lesson as well as the warm up videos and backing tracks are so helpful with my practice. Be prepared to work hard if you want to make a difference in your singing. Heather has helped me knock down unrealistic expectations (everyone on the radio is "airbrushed", people!) while building up a strong foundation for proper technique. Singing is not easy, but with practice, hard work, and an excellent teacher like Heather you can see a lot of rewarding progress. I look forward to my lesson every week and am so glad I hired Heather.
Meaghan is a great teacher. She performs regularly and she brings both academic and real world singing experience to her vocal lessons. She corrected my breathing and my posture and I can definitely tell a big difference in my singing. We worked on voice warm ups first and then she accompanied me on her her piano while I was singing through my song. Her studio space is very safe and comfortable. I feel very lucky to find someone of that quality at her price range in Seattle. I am definitely setting up weekly lessons with her.
My 6 year old daughter takes private piano and singing lessons from Katie and we have had the best experience! She is so sweet, kind and patient. Plus extremely talented. My daughter is already playing the piano with 2 hands and singing up a storm. I would highly recommend Katie and actually have already referred her to my other friends!

I have a gift for helping singers connect with their voices. Once they make that connection, they can always sing well.
