Angela is a great teacher. She was very patient and helped my daughter gain confidence with Oboe. My daughter made measurable progress in just 10 classes she took. Angela also recommended a good reed to purchase. We will be back soon for additional classes. Thanks

Angela is so great to work with! She's very kind and patient, and the environment created is very comfortable. She has really helped me improve my technique and I've also learned new skills quite quickly. Her understanding of music has definitely helped me dive deeper into pieces and make them more musical.

I've been working with Liliana Carolina for over a year, and in that time my Spanish conversation skills have increased tremendously! She is a very patient and thorough teacher who has challenged me throughout our classes. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

Liliana Carolina has been a wonderful instructor for my 5 year old son. She has taken the time to get to know his learning style and tailors each lesson into one that he truly enjoys. His progress has been fantastic. Her passion for teaching is evident, and these classes are among his favorite activities each week. I can't recommend her enough!

"I started lessons with Panagiota as an adult with zero expectations. After completing a year of lessons with her, what I’ve been able to accomplish has far exceeded my expectations. Panagiota is always patient, kind, and encouraging. She always helps point out when I might be developing a bad habit or my timing is slightly off. I’m now learning second position and am on Suzuki Book 3. Panagiota is a phenomenal teacher and if you apply a strong work ethic, I say anything is possible under her tutelage :)"

"Fawn is wonderful! She helped my teenage son, who had never sung before get over his shyness and ultimately get a part in the high school musical. She is always prepared, on time, excited, happy and able to coach the best out of even the shyest of students. She worked tirelessly with my son on improving his voice, his abilities, his knowledge of music and his tryout piece. I would recommend her to anyone who has always wanted to sing but doesn't think he or she can. My son is proof that Fawn can help anyone improve their voice and be confident enough to not only sing in public but get the part."

How to Sing with a "Raspy Voice" Without Hurting Your Voice

Listen, I love me a good, “gritty” rasp as much as the next person but, there is a time and a place. (Lookin’ at you, Chris Stapleton.) Yes, I said it, a vocal coach who likes to hear the enemy of healthy singing, or raspiness, every once in a while. It’s a great way to evoke emotion not just in your song but to the listener’s ear. They hear that rasp and affiliate it with passion, grit, pain, and so on! However, there is a right way and wrong way to approach raspy singing. Whe …
