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."

David H. Malden, MA

About David

I am a 28 year old Massachusetts native and have been playing music since I was 8 years old, starting on the piano with a wonderful teacher in Beverly who also went to Berklee. I picked up the guitar and the bass in high school and got into rock, jazz and blues and haven't looked back. I received a bachelors degree from Berklee in 2012 with a major in Professional Music and minor in Music Education.

I currently perform in and around Boston with several bands and also do custom guitar finishes, set-ups and modifications.

Music study is great exercise for your brain. It works both the left and right hemispheres of the brain simultaneously because you are thinking both creatively and logically/mathematically at the same time.

I am happy teaching students at any level, ...

About Shauna

Singing is a calling for me and has been since the age of five when I used our family fireplace as my stage (when it wasn't lit!) While pursuing music studies at Ithaca College where I studied voice with Patrice Pastore and Vocal Jazz Improv with Steve Brown. My professional life as a vocalist has allowed me to explore a variety of vocal styles from classical, jazz, rock and R&B. Recently I have performed with WoodyGeissman (formerly of the Del Fuegos), Ken Shano, John Funkhouser and Victor Belanger

Great Singing Experience

Shauna is a very talented singer/teacher. She focuses on her student and builds up self-awareness and singing confidence. The singing studio inside Shauna's house is sunny and cozy. It creates a positive atmosphere during lessons. Singing lessons with Shauna are very therapeutic. Shauna puts a great emphasis on not just singing, but singing with your heart and soul. I definitely recommend Shauna as a teacher to anyone who wants to take singing classes.

Great Teacher!

Shauna makes singing a fun experience. I enjoy the lessons and always leave them feeling energized. I never realized how much goes into using your voice effectively until I started taking lessons. I highly recommend her as a 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 ...

My teaching experience includes beginners through college level, ages 2-75. If you want to learn, I will give you the tools to do so and take things at your pace.

I have had experience teaching young people with learning challenges. Please be advised my home studio is not wheel-chair accessible.

My training in music includes a Bachelor's in Performance from New England Conservatory and a Master's in Performance and Music Education from The Boston Conservatory. I hold a Massachusetts Department of Education Music certification. I speak English, Spanish and Portuguese.

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.
