At first I had doubts about the potential effectiveness of online lessons. But I am unable to advance with local vocal teachers and decided to give it a shot.
Leslie's immediate insights into things I was doing wrong and things I could do better have already made an impact in both my approach and ability. I've taken vocal lessons off and on locally for nearly 20 years, and in the first lesson she suggested at least four things that I had never been told before, and all of them were spot-on.
Her flexibility in both schedule and simply working to help me achieve the things I want to achieve have been amazing.
I would highly recommend her coaching to anyone looking to improve!

My 10 year old son took piano lessons from Jennifer. Jennifer was a dedicated teacher and kept my son engaged by choosing songs that he enjoyed. She was energetic and always ended the lessons on an encouraging and upbeat note (no pun intended!). While she kept the lessons enjoyable, she made sure progress was made every week. Jennifer made piano lessons a positive experience for my son.

I took lessons from Jennifer for about three years, and I was very impressed! I was constantly making measurable improvement in all areas of my voice. Jennifer is very flexible with how you want a lesson to be run, and she encourages you to try out a wide variety of music genres. I loved going to her lessons every week; they were always positive, different, and fun!
Justin H. Bloomington, IN

About Justin

I have been playing banjo for eleven years and touring in a band for four. For the beginner, I can teach banjo from the ground up. For the intermediate, I can teach plenty of tips and tricks to make playing with others more enjoyable. I teach Scruggs, Melodic, and Clawhammer styles, so you will learn the banjo from every angle. Lessons are informative, but laid back. Having fun is the most important part of playing and instrument, so that is how I try to teach.
