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.

About Emily

Hello all! I am Emily F., a recent graduate of Grove City College with a degree in Music Education. While in school I majored in Percussion and Voice and spent the majority of my time performing and gaining experience. I am currently an elementary music teacher with Prince George's County Schools. I have had years of lessons myself and have taught many students as well. As a vocalist, I can teach you how to sing anything from Top 40 hits to Broadway numbers to Operatic Arias. I will help you gain confidence as a performer and vocal strength. I am also prepared to teach beginning piano lessons to help you learn to accompany yourself and others. For percussion lessons, I have years of experience as a principal percussionist in my College's band and orchestra and would love to help you learn

I started taking marimba lessons from Emily several months, but due to various work related and health issues, I've had to frequently change my schedule with her. I have appreciated her flexibility in working with me and has always responded in a timely manner. She has shown great patience and is a good teacher. She loves what she's doing and that is a great asset in teaching. Most of all, she is a very nice person.

I have been taking piano lessons with Emily for almost a year, and have had a very good experience. Her teaching style is "laid back" and patient, but she does emphasize accuracy in technique. (This was a factor I was looking for in a piano teacher.) I took lessons as a child, but had not touched the piano since then. In the past year, I feel I have made significant progress.

Personally, Emily seems to be a dedicated profession (she is also a nice person to work with.) She has consistently responded to e-mails, texts, etc. in a timely manner.

Emily was super helpful. She worked really well with me, even when I was a little nervous. She's such a bubbly and positive person, and I looked forward to every lesson i had with her. She worked with me and all my scheduling issues, and was very understanding. I really enjoyed her teaching style, she was very relaxed and made me feel a lot more comfortable singing. Overall I really thing I've improved over these past few months and I'm looking forward to keeping in touch with Emily!

Larry is an incredible teacher. I was never bored at any lessons, Larry had me thinking hard every lesson, challenging the way I looked at history. I feel like not only did I learned what happened in history but I came out of it looking through a different paradigm.

I recommend him to everyone.

Writing · In studio
As an adult student who has struggled with creative writing, Larry has been instrumental in opening a whole new world of self expression for me. I highly recommend him for any student who wishes to either grasp fundamental skills or for the one who simply wishes to polish their own.

Additionally Larry has been able to introduce me to Shakespeare, a life long interest of mine... one which has always frustrated me do to my lack of understanding, in a non threatening, non stressful way.

Thank you Larry.

The best quote I can give an actor is from my buddy Bill, Lol

'All the world's a stage!'

Once you really internalize that and believe it then the real art of acting will be released to you.

About Ben

Hello Scholars, My name is Ben S. and my mission is to make learning fun. I learned a very long time ago that if you can engage a student in a fun and fancy free way the potential for educating will be at its highest. I developed several methods from working in a Montessori environment that aide me in capturing the best way to reach and teach each student. If you have an open mind and a willingness to learn new ways to solve old problems we will get along just fine.
