I took piano lessons as a kid and vocal lessons through middle school and high school in a small rural town two hours from Pittsburgh. After a year of feeling a little lonely in a new city by myself I decided I wanted to take a piano and singing lesson once a week just for something to do and to keep myself "in singing shape". I found thumbtack, answered all the questions, and waited for emails from music teachers to come through. The next day I had multiple responses but Rossi Music Studio was the first I opened up and I called immediately after reading it. Even though I was very excited, I never saw myself driving a little over an hour three days a week to work with Joe a few hours a day. I never thought I could find so much amazing talent in one place, even the 7 and 8 year olds have incredible singing voices. Rossi Music Studio's curriculum is so cutting-edge that I can't believe how much I've grown in the short period of time in range, vocal agility, and tone. After a month I don't even recognize my voice and I am realizing what an awesome future I have to look forward to. Pittsburgh is very lucky to have Smokin' Joe and his amazing talent. He genuinely wants the best for each student and puts all of his heart into each lesson. He brings out THE BEST and more in each of his students.
Dan is a wonderful teacher. He has been teaching my teenage daughter for almost a year now. Her self confidence has improved and so has her voice. Dan is patient and kind but tough in a good way that pushes my daughter to the next level. I would recommend Dan to anyone interested in professional singing lessons. We would go no where else.Thanks Dan ,Jeanette
My daughter, who is 11 yrs old, is very comfortable with Kelly. She is not only teaching her how to use her voice but also how to express herself through her emotions and reactions to the music and words. She brings a theatrical edge to the lesson and it makes singing that much more fun and engaging for my daughter. In only 3 lessons we can already see such a difference and new level of comfort in her singing.
Mark Lucas is a fantastic teacher. He sends me home each week with something new under my belt that immediately helps me in my playing. I highly recommend NStuff for music lessons!
Excellent piano teacher for our four kids!
Holly is a great vocal teacher. I learned so much from her: how to control my breathing, how to pay attention to my own voice, how to go from my head voice to chest voice, and so much more. I was mediocre at first, but after taking lessons from her I improved drastically in a short amount of time to the point where I was matching pitch with her in a different octave. I highly recommend Holly to anyone; from a clueless beginner to an advanced professional.
My 14yo daughter has benefited from Kara's instruction in just few lessons. The vocal instruction goes beyond just the obvious mechanics of producing a good sound: Kara builds rapport well and is able to recognize, name, and help remedy bad habits or fears the student might have. Her explanations aren't lengthy, but she uses visualizations that are apt, and that stick and are applicable to other vocal pieces. My daughter loves working with Kara Cornell, and us as parents do occasionally - but not always - sit in on a lesson and enjoy the music.
Between the high expectations Mrs. Noullet had and the patience she showed in training me, the results were phenominal. Gail had this 'magic formula' by combining her knowledge of singing and constant encouragement (which I really needed!). Before taking voice lessons, I would have never been able to get up in front of a group of people (terrifying) and sing. I could tell that she loves teaching and that made me want to be even better for her. I made chamber chior and also had a singing part as one of the orphans in Plum Senior High's "Annie". I would recommend Mrs. Noullet to any parent wanting to give their child voice lessons. Best teacher in the area.
It has been an amazing and motivating experience meeting Donald. This guy is REALLY talented and musically versatile. He is very passionate about his training when it comes to the client. Donald gives you JUST what you need to persevere and move forward as a vocalist. His push, patience, and honesty is what I also experienced. Coming into my very first lesson believing that I couldn't, I left knowing that I could. I hope those that are in need of a vocal coach get a chance to experience one of the best!
The trick to getting children to stick with music is to get them involved young! I teach piano lessons to kids as young as 3, violin lessons to children as young as 7, voice lessons to children as young as 8, and other instruments by the age of 10. I am a music teacher for Penn Christian Academy of Butler, PA. I have a degree from Grove City College in music education in 2014. My instrumental experiences are as follows: * Piano-17 years * Clarinet- 15 years * Trumpet- 10 years * Saxophone- 8 years I have played with the following: Knoch High School Marching Band, KHS Concert Band, Karns City High School Marching Band, KCHS Concert Band, KCHS Indoor Percussion Ensemble, Grove City College Wind Ensemble, GCC Concert Band, GCC Marching Band, GCC Percussion Ensemble, Musicians Concert Band, KCHS Pit Orchestra, and Butler Summer Dramatics Pit Orchestra. I graduated in December 2013 with music education (K-12 band, choir, and orchestra).
Matt is very good at adapting the lesson to the learner. He is professional, personable and knowledgable. Recommended!
I give Ian 5 stars simply for the adaptability in his teaching style. He definitely knows his stuff about singing, and the more that he works with a student (like myself), he is able to find the root of some of the quirks that one may have and iron out the kinks. If you some kind of a performance, he is more than willing to help in any way he can, and if you don't have much but still want to learn to improve, he can help you learn that. From music theory, diction, technique, whatever you want, he will answer it, or go looking for the answer himself. Great confidence booster. 5/5 flat out.
I honestly couldn't be happier. The individual instruction is so amazing. There are group sessions once a month that are beneficial for performers. My son is so motivated now! The teacher lets me sit in on the lessons and I'm so impressed!
I believe my work stands out from others because I am a performer who has experienced the stage, the practice room, the ensemble as well as the private instruction for myself. I am able to share a wide range of knowledge and find the best approach for each student.
Let's Play Music is a piano and music theory course for young children (starting ages 4-6) that emphasizes total musicianship through piano playing, singing, classical music, note reading and ear training, and it's accomplished through play!
I teach the fundamentals and beginnings of music theory such as the basics and harmonization through intervals and harmonies. I am also a voice teacher and coach.
Private lessons are offered on piano, voice, violin, viola and cello. Rates vary according to the enrollment level. Volume discounts for siblings and longer lessons are available.
We at Bentley & Romito Music believe that music should be fun and educational. Students learn how to read music and are taught music theory. They can also learn their favorite songs as well as how to "jam." Students are taught how to improvise and are encouraged to be creative. Each student also has a chance to play at a number of recitals over the course of the year.
I teach children and adults guitar, rhythm and lead plus bass guitar. I can also teach some beginner piano and singing lessons.
My name is Devon. I'm 25 years old, and I have 20 years of experience in playing music and seven years of teaching music. I am currently the pianist, songwriter, and lead singer of a rock band. I'm classically trained and have experience in playing and teaching, music theory, music history, and singing. I play classical, jazz, blues, rock, rock 'n' roll, and popular music.
I teach my students the material they want to learn. I explain the music theory behind the music. I then encourage the students to put their skills to the test by recording what they learn. Completed CD is available upon following lesson.
