Emily is GREAT!

Emily is a great voice teacher and Sage adores and admires her very much. Sage has learned so much from Emily and we are very happy with her services. Emily always provides timely and valuable feedback and Sage looks forward to her lessons each week. Emily should be commended for a job well done; we appreciate her and so does Sage.

What I DIDN'T Know

Emily is an awesome coach and instructor. Yes I said coach! A coach actually encourages you, and that is what she did for me. Anyway, as for the title, "What I DIDN'T Know", there were things in film auditions that I didn't know that would were actually sabotaging my chances for auditions. Emily worked on these real quick and fixed them up.Long story short, I had an audition yesterday, and using Emily's lessons's the casting director said, "Wow, that was actually really good"

Excellent Instructor

I've spent years developing bad singing habits. Emily has been very patient and has helped me fix many of those bad habits one step at a time. I've made significant progress in a few short months and would recommend her to anyone looking to study voice.

About Andy

Learn from an Internationally recognized musician! In 2008 I set two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for continuous guitar playing. I've performed at nearly every important music venue in Pittsburgh, notably: Heinz Hall, Heinz Field, the (old) Syria Mosque, The Electric Banana, Nick's Fat City, Graffiti, the Decade, the Hard Rock Café (Pittsburgh) and Stage AE. Since starting classical piano at age 5, trumpet, french horn and bass have all been primary instruments for at least several years, but the guitar has remained since age 10. I have developed an extensive and well-rounded set of sensibilities from performing jazz, blues and rock bands, bell choirs, marching bands, orchestras and musicals. Along with decades of experience in music performance, education, composition and production, I

I started working with Jen a little over two months ago, and in those two months I have learned more about the music business than I have in my entire life. Ms. Jen works hard to make sure her students get the most out of every lesson. She is a genuine person with a huge heart and dedication to the music field. In every lesson, Ms. Jen warms us up well by working on breathing techniques. We are always laughing and having a ball, there is never a dull moment with Ms. Jen! I would recommend Jen to anyone interested in taking lessons. She is an inspiration to all of her students, and the best teacher I have ever had!

Singing · In studio
Jen is a great teacher who really cares about her students and whether they are learning. I came to her studio to learn how to sing for fun, and it was very helpful! She lets the student's goals guide the instruction, rather than sticking to a rigid curriculum. Jen also considers the student's needs and understanding carefully, making sure to explain things in a different way if needed.
