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."

About Vasiliy

Hello,
I am Vasiliy M, Boston University School of Music Alumnus (DMA in Composition). We dwell in Boston since Fall 2002; before that time , we lived in New York, where I studied Composition at Mannes College, The New School For Music. I received both BM, and MM degrees from Mannes in 1999, and 2001, respectively. Before an arrival to US, in 1994, I studied Jazz Performance, Electric Bass Major, and Classical Composition, at Moldova State Conservatory, from 1988 to 1993, respectively.
I was raised in the family, where music is an essential part of its daily life; my father, Grigoriy, before his retirement, was a military band trombone player, and, quite naturally, I was exposed to music, and encouraged by my parents to learn playing an instrument of my choice, from my ...

Wonderful teacher

I'm so happy to have Vasily as my son's piano teacher. He's very kind and knowledgeable. One quick and important thing I notice about this teacher, He always pays attention to all the details and make sure that the student fully understands the concepts. He's very patient and will not rush through things just because time is up.. Special thanks to Musiclessons for giving the opportunity to meet this excellent teacher...

About Katie

Hi! I am a conservatory graduate with degrees in Vocal Performance (BM, Oberlin Conservatory, MM, Boston Conservatory.) I have studied vocal pedagogy at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and have experience teaching and coaching students of all ages. As a pianist, I work in the Boston area as an accompanist, keyboardist, and music director, mainly in musical theater, so I am familiar with coaching singers in that style as well.

I believe that any singing style (classical, musical theater, jazz, pop, etc.) can benefit from a solid technical foundation based in breath, flexibility, and speech-to-singing connection. Although my singing background is in opera, my goal is to teach students to use good technique to free themselves to be comfortable and expressive in any style ...

Anastasia S. Medford, MA

About Anastasia

After Anastasia’s Carnegie Hall Debut in 2006, the New York Concert Review wrote: "For a critic, hearing a new pianist with a truly warm, luscious tone is like breathing in the scent of jasmine blooming - a pleasure to be recalled again and again - and so I'm happy to report that from the first note she touched at her Weill Hall recital, Anastasia S. was a genuine pleasure to listen to. Every piece, every measure, every note - no matter how complex the texture, no matter how many strands of melody and accompaniment - was wrapped in a halo of golden tone..."

Born in Kiev, Ukraine, Anastasia S. gave her first solo recital at the age of eleven. Ms. S. is a graduate of the Hochschule für Musik Würzburg, Germany, and holds a Master’s degree from The ...

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.
