Bulent G. Somerville, MA

About Bulent

Described by The Times Herald-Record, New York, as a "firm bass- baritone", and by The Boston Musical Intelligencer as "outstanding dramatically and musically", I am a classical singer with international credits, at home in diverse genres from opera to art song, Broadway to The American Songbook, spirituals to jazz and pop. I am also a professional drummer, pianist and instructor. I enjoy teaching, and view it as making music together in a class setting. Lessons are both disciplined and fun.

Recent highlights include the roles of The Master and Yefim in the U.S.-premiere of the opera "Desire to Sleep" by Moshe Shulman; the narrator in the world-premiere of "Experience" in English by Phivos-Angelos Kollias; world-premieres of "Missa Patri ...

“I studied with Bulent for 3 months this past summer. Bulent is a fantastic teacher and every single lesson I noticed a prominent increase in my vocal talents, including my range and my breathing. He helped me do exactly what I wanted with my voice and was able to emphasize how I should be practicing to work on certain parts of my voice. He was always very effective and excited about teaching and I had a lot of fun learning from him. I was really grateful to have Bulent as a teacher and if I had the chance I would learn from him again!”

"For the past three years my high school aged son has taken piano lessons from Bulent. In all that time he has been consistently patient, kind, enthusiastic and inspiring. Bulent used every minute to provide the best instruction, correction and encouragement. His love of music is evident as he often shared suggestions and links for video and live performances. I recommend him unreservedly! I have read some of the other positive reviews of Bulent and I can attest to the truthfulness of all of them - there is no exaggeration. Bulent is a remarkable human being and a wonderful teacher."

Puts a student at ease!

When I started lessons with Michael, I was experienced on one brass instrument and a beginner on another one. He was able to show me some useful things about the instrument I was new on, and help me keep going on the one I was already familiar with.

One thing that really stood out for me: I've always been too embarrassed to improvise musically, especially in front of anyone, but Michael got me improvising--and enjoying it!--during our very first lesson. I was impressed!

About Amelia

I have been interested in music for as long as I can remember. I began taking piano lessons when I was six and started auditioning for musicals at eight. I fell in love with performing, and my passion has grown into a career path. I began studying voice privately when I was in thirteen. Music and performing have brought so much joy to my life, and I love to help others develop and cultivate their own passion for music.

I recently received my Master€™s Degree in Vocal Performance from the New England Conservatory. I also hold a Bachelor€™s Degree in Vocal Performance from DePaul University. During undergrad, I was able to study abroad for a semester in Vienna, Austria where I performed in an opera workshop. I have spent two summers on Cape Cod singing with the College ...

So many teachers make you take lessons from scratch to see how much you have learned and go over the material again with you to fix errors. It is so boring for me!!! I hate that. I'm sure it works for some people. I like to play my hardest song and then go from there instead! He did no for met. He caught on right away, exactly where I needed help. I didn't waste hours and hours of tedious lessons that I would quit rather than have to do that same material again! Also, he breaks things down that are very complicated, to easy to understand chunks and bits to make it easy.
