Karen S. Wilmington, DE

About Karen

I hold a Bachelor of Music Education Degree from Misericordia University in Dallas, PA. I have studied piano with Gisa Adler at New School of Music in Philadelphia, PA. I taught public school in the Conestoga Valley School District in Lancaster County, PA and I have taught private piano for over ten years.
I love music and I love teaching - seeing my students progress and reach their goals. I believe music should be a pleasant experience and a demanding and ill - spirited teacher can ruin a student. I am NOT one of these. You will find me patient and supportive.

To be an accomplished pianist you must learn all the basics well. These include music symbology which enables you to read music so you can translate it into the sound on the piano. In order to ...

Alexis explains technique in a way that is at once immediately understandable and easy to implement. I've only had a few lessons with her and I'm already noticing a huge improvement. I would highly recommend her as a voice teacher to anyone at any level.

Alexis has been a wonderful private vocal instructor for my son who is currently a middle school student. She is professional, versatile, helpful, flexible and extremely encouraging as a teacher and mentor. Alexis believes that her students need a solid musical foundation; she is willing to spend time teaching the basics in order to assure her students know how to read music. She has been able to help my son grasp and learn music theory concepts that were sometime challenging in his music theory class at school. Alexis has also worked diligently with my son on musical theatre audition preparation which prepared him and ultimately earned him lead roles in a few musical theatre productions. Alexis is very versatile and is able to teach many types of musical and vocal styles from classical, to Broadway – musical theatre and to popular music, etc. She worked with my son and helped him gain confidence to participate as a vocal soloist for his school’s talent show. I also love the fact that Alexis can see the growth in her student’s after they have worked hard in their private lessons; she offers them advice and encouragement and often recommends new opportunities for the student to try such as auditioning for All State Choirs. Alexis is also very flexible and will work with you in instances where you need to change, reschedule or cancel your vocal lessons. This flexibility is greatly needed and appreciated as a busy parent who may have to change the schedule due to personal conflicts or work commitment. But, the best endorsement that I can give for Alexis is that my son trust, believes in and likes Alexis as a teacher and as a person and as a parent, I don’t think you can ask for too much more!

Valerie Rocks!

Valerie has been teaching my daughter for a couple years. My child has gone from shy, unskilled and uncertain in her singing TO confident, skilled and loves to perform. Valerie's one-on-one sessions are productive and tailored to my child's needs. She also draws on other resources to help develop my child's talent thru studio and recommendations. Her teaching skills are excellent as have seen my daughter transform steadily over these past few years. I highly, highly, highly recommend Valerie as a teacher. When I was searching for a singing teacher, I didn't know where to look and what to look for and went through Take Lessons and got a 'gem'.

Fantastic!

Valerie is a great teacher on many levels. I've heard my improvements dramatically within several lessons because of her instruction and if you are nervous she helps you get over it quickly. She is very friendly and helps you achieve your goal, I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

Love her!

I was quitting smoking when I met Valerie and I wanted to get my voice back. I was so self-conscious of my sound and range but after 5 minutes with her I just let go! She turned my voice around quick, and made me more aware of my stance and breath. I'm really happy I got her as a teacher!

Sharon is absolutely a wonderful teacher! She pays attention to a lot of details and focuses on the technical skills, yet brings out the entire harmony out of classical music. This is exactly what I am looking for as a coach that also gives inspiration. I absolutely enjoy her classes and she provides a very nice and comfy environemnt at her studio.
