About Elise
I am a professional, classically trained soprano with a love for theater and the arts! In addition to being a performer, I also love teaching music lessons. My private vocal studio includes a range of students from young children to adults, who vary in musical aspirations and sing in many different styles, including opera, art song, jazz, blues, pop, and musical theater. My students have gone on to sing on Broadway, pursue music and theater degrees, compete and win competitions. I have extensive training and knowledge of proper vocal use, as well as a passion for teaching my students self expression through music. My students are given every opportunity to become well-rounded, performing musicians, and my goal is to give students the tools to become life long, passionate musicians themselves!

Elise is an incredible voice coach! She listens close to your vocal needs and helps you achieve the vocal aspirations. I worked with Elise for a little more than nine months and my range, tone, and technique improved so much. By far best vocal coach I've ever had.

About Laura
I teach voice, piano and guitar. My Music Degree from Point Loma Nazarene University is in Vocal Performance. I love what I do. I teach children through adults. I have lots of experience in worship
leading for church if that is of interest.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy-going, but I expect you to practice. I am thorough in my approach. For piano lessons, I utilize the Alfred method. I emphasize note reading and theory in each genre, whether taking guitar, voice or piano. I am currently using Hal Leonard's Guitar Method books for guitar and a few different things for vocal curriculum. All lessons can be supplemented with what you are currently interested in or working towards. I enjoy helping prepare young people for their performances in theatre arts. Lessons can be combined, for example; if you are interested in both voice and
guitar, you can take a longer weekly lesson and have both subjects covered! Weekly assignments are given and checked to see if done before proceeding to the next step! I do not recommend students come every other week. I recommend one lesson per week.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar and books. Student provides their guitar during lesson and for piano, must have a piano or keyboard at home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping young worship leaders hone their gifts. I enjoy preparing people for their musical theatre performances.

About Richard
I can't wait to work with you! I am passionate about the subjects I teach, and find nothing can compare to seeing a student "get it", so they may too enjoy the passion that comes from learning and doing something they love.

Everything I teach I've learned most completely by doing as a Professional, and find great reward in sharing my experience and knowledge with my students.

When the "aha" light goes on, it's truly a wonderful moment for me, and encourages me to drive my students to build towards more of those moments as students, and then ultimately, for themselves as they learn to grow for themselves.

Professor Elisa corrected the bow technique and solved an injury I had for years in the right arm.
Thanks to her I was able to play the concert of Haydn in C as soloist.
After having had the opportunity to be his student I have improved considerably and managed to expand my sonorous concept considerably.
She is very pedagogic and has a great patience to solve the personal problems that I had from a very empathetic and above all corporal.
Today I can say that to be about to leave the race for my injury I am competing prominently at the national level (Chile)

Elisa is wonderful! She has enormous amounts of energy that translate to her cello playing and teaching. She not only is a great teacher but also a very musical and technically capable cellist. As a college student she pushed me and also gave me the skills I needed to improve. Elisa is kind and thoughtful. She could beginners to advanced students with anything cello related.

I've know Elisa for seven years when we met at Yale School of Music. She is very passionate about teaching and all her students have come along way since they started taking lessons with her. She really knows how to adjust to every student and to bring the best out of them. Her commitment to music is unique and her sensitivity and musicianship makes her an outstanding cellist and musician. I recommend her tremendously.

I feel privileged to be able to write this review. David was my son Sunil's saxophone instructor throughout middle and high school, and his supporter through college. Under David's expert instruction Sunil earned the award for Pennsylvania All State Musician in alto sax as a high school senior. In addition to David's incredible expertise in performance music and his high level teaching skills, he is a very generous and patient and caring person. Over the course of years David became a true friend to Sunil, and to our whole family. I would recommend David to any music student unconditionally.

David Blumberg is an awesome musician and teacher who truly wants his students to shine! He taught my daughter at his location in High School, and via Skype once she advanced to college. David fostered my daughter's love of the clarinet and helped her to improve and accomplish her musical goals. Whether the goal was to make District Band in High School, to successfully audition in college, or to improve sound & technique, David Blumberg has provided motivation and technical expertise!

Dave is unquestionably the best teacher I have ever had in the 60+ years that I have been playing the clarinet. Although I had been away from playing for some time, Dave provided gentle advice and direction that has significantly improved my technique, tone, and musicianship as well as my confidence as a clarinetist. Dave is able to establish a great rapport with his students both mature and young. He understands their needs and goals and helps them achieve those goals. Thanks to Dave's encouragement and help, I was recently accepted as a member of a fine regional symphonic band. Above all, a lesson with Dave is not only instructive--it's also fun.

About bob
I can teach students to read music and pursue excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student while stressing the importance of training the ear, which is where the confidence lies .Using methods that enables musicians to play what they actually conceive rather than bore their listeners with licks and "notes that work. "I'm not gigging currently, but being versatile , experienced and having formal training helps to make a learning experience easy, stress free and fun,and, that is especially what beginning and aspiring students need.
Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Rock, Hard Rock, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, Classical.

Stephanie is a wonderful teacher!

I always was interested in learning to sing opera and was a complete beginner when I first starting taking lessons with her. We did our lessons at my house, which was always really helpful and convenient (she can also do online lessons, too!).

Stephanie was always so patient and encouraging, even when I had trouble with certain songs. She genuinely seemed happy for me whenever I made progress! She also helped me a lot with breathing techniques, which is something I always struggled with.

Stephanie is one of the best teachers I’ve ever had and would highly recommend her to anyone!

I took Trumpet and Flugelhorn lessons from Christopher for four years. What I appreciated most about Christopher was his patience. It can be very challenging to learn Trumpet and Flugelhorn however, Christopher taught the lessons in a way that was easy to understand. He took the time to explore what my difficulties were. He then would present me with ways to challenge them. Christopher also has a great understanding of music theory. He explains and demonstrates musical concepts very thoroughly. I highly recommend Christopher Ward.
