Rated 5 out of 5 by DolceScherza A whole new world has opened for me
I wholeheartedly agree with all of the glowing reviews. Vanessa is a wonderful teacher. I so appreciate her spot-on ear and her excellent training, performance and vocal teaching experience to help me express myself and become the best singer I can be. I am a relative newbie to singing, and I feel so fortunate to have found Vanessa who is so genuine and is passionate about helping me learn proper technique. Consequently, a whole new world has been opened to me, and I’ve been achieving a depth with my singing voice that truly astonishes me. When you have a desire to creatively express yourself but have no concept or clue as to how to get there, or perhaps have hit a wall, it is a true gift to find a kind and generous teacher like Vanessa who has such an amazing ability to assess your needs, to help you learn proper technique, and to help you discover (and strengthen) the voice you never knew existed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nanasia I'm on my way because of Vanessa
When I started training with Vanessa I had not had any formal education on singing since middle school. I needed to re-learn my fundamentals of singing. Her warm and encouraging teaching style made me comfortable immediately. She quickly found out where I was lacking and taught me I can be in control if I learn how to Breath while singing. Sounds easy right? Well no Vanessa really had to break my bad singing techniques because I wasn't using breath control. Well now my breathing and my tone has developed all due to Vanessa giving me the tools to sing properly. I highly recommend her if you are a serious student wanting to achieve your own sound properly and save your vocal chords from burning out due to bad form.

Rated 4 out of 5 by emogirl96 An inspiring vocal teacher
Vanessa gave quality instruction while making it fun. She went over and beyond expectations with her scheduling flexibility. She also included a wide variety of music to sing. Her mannerism was kind and encouraging to the student. She is an amazing vocal teacher who is patient with her students.

Vanessa is an amazing teacher. She is so sweet and encouraging! Whenever I'm having trouble with an exercise she is able to pin point what I'm doing wrong and correct me, which I really appreciate. I've only had a few lessons with her but I can already hear the progress! I highly recommend taking lessons with her. She's great!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by LeiLaniT An Amazing Instructor
Before my lessons with Vanessa I never knew or had faith that anyone could ever truly teach someone how to sing. I thought either you were born with a natural ability or you weren't.. I was wrong!After a few lessons with Vanessa I couldn't believe my ears! I actually stopped in the middle of one of my notes saying "Is that me??!" :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by ShawnekiaB I love my lessons!
My lessons are awesome! Vanessa is really a phenonmenal instructor. She has an upbeat personality and she is very passionate about teaching. With previous instructors I felt like I was just sitting there listening to the instructor. But, Vanessa gets you involved. As she is teaching you are singing along with her. Its awesome! Thank you Take Lessons for providing such a great teacher.
