Thanks Joshua!

Lessons with Joshua are the highlights of my week. I'm a busy professional who works ~60 hour weeks every week, but lessons with Joshua motivates me to practice on top of that.

Firstly, he is a great singer himself, works in the theater business and performs regularly - which is what you want in a teacher (you don't want do _learn_ from someone who don't _do_ what he/she's teaching). A well-trained singer like him can recognize instantly what you're doing wrong and what needs to be done to fix it. He has well-developed ideas ready for you to utilize to improve your technique. They include analogies, ways to think about your body and your resonators, etc. His teaching also helps you understand what you need to do to sing in a particular style (in which you may not always want to sing "correctly") and what is healthy for your voice vs what is not.

Secondly, his lessons are enormously fun. He achieves a great balance of keeping things light and keeping things professional. We get work done each lesson but it never feels like work. I always leave lessons feeling like it was too short. I would probably book three-hour lessons every time if I could.

Joshua is wonderful!

I've always wanted to learn how to sing, but was too insecure/too uncertain to know where to start. Joshua has been amazing at teaching an absolute beginning, from how to correctly breathe, to learning how to match pitch, to recently making it through one of my first songs successfully. Joshua is incredibly warm and supportive; I highly recommend him as a teacher!!

Very encouraging teacher

I started taking lessons with Adrienne to become more comfortable with my voice and to learn real singing techniques. She has been extremely helpful. I love her enthusiasm when teaching I can tell she loves it. Adrienne is great at identifying my specific needs and getting me to a place I didn't even know I was capable of.

Adrienne is a very knowledgeable vocal coach who can really help you find your voice.

I started taking vocal lessons in order to gain confidence in singing, learn proper technique, and most of all, find my voice. It didn't take long and Adrienne has helped me with these things and has far exceeded my expectations. In addition, to her expertise and professionalism, she has a kind personality, which makes it easy to take her instruction. I look forward to continue to learn from Adrienne.

I understand that sometimes people have a hard time speaking in front of others, but really want to improve. Whether it be, because you aren't speaking clearly enough, aren't projecting enough or need to get over your jitters, let's see what we can do. We can work on monologues or look at what event you're preparing for. Even if it is a speech for school or for an event at work. Both Acting and Singing have helped me with these issues. Working in front of someone that knows what to listen for and can help you to tweak what you've been doing might be the best solution.

About Nicole

As a voice teacher and voice coach I strive to help the student get to where they want to be vocally. For me singing is something that brings me joy and I hope to be able to share that with you. It took me a while to realize how much music and singing means to me. While studying something entirely different at the University of Maryland, I began studying voice and realized that it was something that I had a gift for. I fell in love with singing art songs, jazz and opera arias. And while studying at the University of Maryland, I had the opportunity to work as a voice teacher/ section leader with the women's section of a choir, numerous opportunities to work as a soloist and in a few jazz clubs. I was also involved in dance performances and acted as a dance tutor. Later, when I ...

Excellent

I am an adult learner new to music lessons, and so was very anxious during my first violin session with Raycurt. I can't say enough about his professionalism and easy teaching style. We spoke prior to the meeting, and he told me what I needed to get started. More impressive, he showed up during a snowstorm! I highly recommend him.

Liesl easily imparts her love for music to her students.

Liesl interacted well with our 9 year old granddaughter. She kept her on point and interested in learning the various skills necessary for a new student to sight read music. Our granddaughter had had three previous teachers who gave in to her excuses for not sticking to task or practcing. Liesel is upbeat about music and imparts that to her students.
