I love having Reina as my private voice teacher! She's taught me so much about my instrument and helped me grow not only into a better singer, but a better performer! Would highly recommend, especially if you're an actor who wants to improv their singing.

Reina is one of the best Teachers on Take Lessons. She really knows her stuff and she’s fun. She makes you feel relaxed and open to express yourself. Her critique is done in such a way that you don’t realize It. You can truly grow with her assistance. I love her classes.

"Francesca is absolutely fantastic. I did a LOT of research when I was selecting a teacher. The teacher had to be multi-faceted (I wanted to explore singing, performing, and learning guitar/ukulele). The teacher had to have positive energy: there's nothing worse than a boring teacher. They had to be personable, communicate well and be NICE, but still be demanding when needed (to keep us challenged and excited and *learning*!). And finally, they had to have No Big Ego -- that is crucial to me, and very hard to find when you find someone that is very good at what they do.

Well, Francesca is ALL of those positive qualities. She knows her stuff, communicates very efficiently (and nicely!). She has a huge range of skills and talents -- from very professional skills/talents while still being able to do/show very down-to-earth personal performances (check out her videos of her performances -- you can see she is very skilled but also very personable -- a rare combination).

Another HUGE quality is her ability with kids. While I am an adult, it was very telling about what kind of *teacher* Francesca is by seeing her be successful with Kids. When I would arrive a bit early for my lessons, often she was just finishing up the last few minutes with a child. She is VERY good with children -- and that is a skill in itself. It's one thing to communicate well with adults; a whole other talent to be "fun" and inspirational to kids! And Francesca does that extremely well. The children learn and have fun doing it -- you can tell by the interactions that the kids are excited and are learning and doing well... of course that equals Fun (and keeps them motivated to learn more). If you have children that want to learn any musical instrument, I would highly recommend Francesca.

All in all, I am very happy I found her. I have learned SO much in just my first several lessons that I am very pleased with the VALUE of her teaching -- some teachers may be cheaper in cost, but if it takes 5 times longer to learn from a semi-good teacher, you end up spending more and getting less, and taking more time. The old saying applies here: "You get what you pay for."

If there were 6 stars available, Francesca would get that rating from me."
