About Ian

First, some exciting news! I just became a part of takelessons online lesson program, and now I can teach students from anywhere in the country! But I digress... Let's see, first and foremost I'm a music lover of the highest order. Whether it's jazz, rock, indie, classical, hip-hop or country, if it's good music, I love it. I grew up obsessively listening to everything i could get my hands on, and began playing guitar at the age of 11. That was cut short, though, when the next year I almost lost my middle finger on my left hand in an ice skating incident. It took 5 years for me to regain the strength and motion, during which time I was forced to give up guitar playing altogether. I never lost my passion for music, though, and in my heart i never stopped dreaming about what it ...

Great teacher and nice guy!

I started singing lessons as a complete beginner, although I am in my 30s. Ian was happy to teach me the basics and then we dove right in to something I was interested in learning to sing. He was easy to talk to and encouraging, but willing to point out what I could improve as well. I would recommend him to others.

Awesome teacher!!!

Took a couple singing lessons in the past with a different teacher and I didn't get very far. Ian has a great teaching style and I can already hear a difference in my singing just in the first few weeks of lessons. He is very encouraging, especially for a beginner like me. His constructive criticism is equally helpful. Highly recommended.

Fantastic, Genre Diverse Vocal Teacher

In addition to thoroughly addressing all of the issues that initially spurned my desire for vocal lessons, we also examined and exercised other critical areas that he brought to my attention, and laid a strong foundation for singing technique.
Bulent G. Somerville, MA

The fundamentals and essential delivery of speaking, public speaking, and singing / vocal production / projection are the same. All should express the essence of the text vocally with good breath support, diction and focus. My voice studio included both singers and public speakers. Anyone interested in improving speech and speaking voice would benefit from the voice classes, which I adjust according to the specific goals and needs of the students. Classes also include dramatic and interpretive work. For detailed info, please see the info under singing in my profile.

About Bulent

"When you think of opera, the word modern doesn't usually follow. Bulent G... is changing the way we think about this centuries-old art form. G. is anything but a stereotypical opera singer... He isn't merely an opera singer, but a well-rounded musician. He has performed Broadway pieces, jazz solos, spirituals, and even contemporary pop songs, which he says inform his interpretation of even the most classical roles in opera. This approach to opera may be what draws crowds who aren't as familiar with the genre... This opera singer, who says his favorite music ranges from that of the heavy metal 80s band Cacophony to jazz pianist Chick Corea, shows that opera singers may not be what you think, and his audiences are surprisingly diverse as well..." - Chelsea Whyte, The Somerville News ...

“I studied with Bulent for 3 months this past summer. Bulent is a fantastic teacher and every single lesson I noticed a prominent increase in my vocal talents, including my range and my breathing. He helped me do exactly what I wanted with my voice and was able to emphasize how I should be practicing to work on certain parts of my voice. He was always very effective and excited about teaching and I had a lot of fun learning from him. I was really grateful to have Bulent as a teacher and if I had the chance I would learn from him again!”

"For the past three years my high school aged son has taken piano lessons from Bulent. In all that time he has been consistently patient, kind, enthusiastic and inspiring. Bulent used every minute to provide the best instruction, correction and encouragement. His love of music is evident as he often shared suggestions and links for video and live performances. I recommend him unreservedly! I have read some of the other positive reviews of Bulent and I can attest to the truthfulness of all of them - there is no exaggeration. Bulent is a remarkable human being and a wonderful teacher."

Encouraging and Patient!

Ian is the most encouraging teacher I've hardly met. He is always ready to point out the improvements and in a sincere way. Even though I tend to repeat the mistake, he takes it as a natural learning process and gives time for myself to overcome it.

Besides, it usually takes me more effort to understand the terms/background of the pieces we work on since English is not my native language but Ian is able to translate into something I could understand.

Great Teacher!

One of my sons has been taking guitar classes and singing classes from Mr. Phil for the last two years and both of my sons have taken his theater class. Mr. Phil is an excellent teacher, great with kids, lots of fun and a great musician. We have been very happy with his teaching.

Awesome Teacher!!!

Phil is an awesome guitar teacher. He is very knowledgeable and uses my musical interests and reasons for learning (the guitar) to aid in teaching. He is able to adapt and meet me at my level yet pushes me to excel and reach my potential. I am always excited for every lesson!

As an actor the Speaking Voice is one of your most important tools. It is also important when making speeches or presentations.

I am trained in Stage performance as well as Film & TV, with a background in directing as well. I have also worked professionally in both Theatre and Film. Whether you just need help learning lines, or you would like to work on an audition piece for college or an important audition, I will be able to help you achieve your best!

About Laura

I hold a BA from Westfield State where I majored in Theatre Arts with a concentration in Performance. I am an experienced teacher with a vast knowledge in Stage Acting, Acting for Film & TV, Improvisation, Shakespeare (acting and deciphering text), Directing, Playwriting, Sound Design, Script Analysis, Scenography, the Meisner Technique, Method Acting, Suzuki, Clowning, and much more. With the background and experience I have, classes are extremely educational and fun! Lessons will be structured around what YOU want to get out of the class. Need help getting into character for a performance? Work on public speaking? Need a better understanding of Shakespeare for an essay? Help learning lines? Want to learn of different acting techniques? Or maybe you're new to acting and are ...

I signed up my 8 year old daughter for acting lessons with Laura. At first it was just to have her get some extra help for a school play, but once the play ended I stuck with the lessons (my daughter loved it). Overall I have nothing bad to say - my kid loves her and acting!
At first I went through this site, but found it easier to just schedule them with Laura directly after a while. The website is too difficult when it comes to bookings, I rather deal with the instructor themselves. Plus, I saved some money by doing it that way too.

I cannot rave about Laura enough! I was skeptical when I first signed my daughter up for acting lessons, especially seeing how pricey they were going to be, but it was completely worth it. My daughter looks forward to her lesson each week, and has even requested that I extend her half hour lesson to an hour.

My daughter has always been very shy, but recently opened up a lot through these lessons. Not just with acting, but at home, with her peers and academically. As a parent, it is wonderful to see that happen.

Laura has been on time to each and every lesson (if not early), and was always prepared with a lesson for the day. She is very informative and knowledgeable on the subject matter (she has covered some Shakespeare as well as contemporary plays), but more importantly for my daughter - she keeps it fun.

If you decide to sign up for acting lessons, experienced or not, go with Laura! As my daughter says, "she's really cool."
