New age meets classic technique in our voice lessons. Lessons are fun and challenging, they incorporate not only voice, but acting and theory as well. Singing is a full body exersice and we need to build the right muscles and technique now so that we can build upon our future.

Yulia is a devoted, persistent, and an encouraging teacher. Yulia has taught me for 3 years and I am very thankful to have her teach me. She is a teacher that will think of ways to help her students during and outside lessons. When teaching, she will give many examples and tricks to help you understand. As a college student, I was very thankful she would find times to work with me. Yulia has been very supportive in helping me succeed and I highly recommend her.

Yulia is excellent at taking it up a notch from the very first lesson. I have been playing for a few years at a couple different churches, and she completely changed my thoughts on technique from the get go!

I have had a very positive experience with Adam as my guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. I could see myself making progress and look forward to my next lesson!
Mark
I've been taking lessons from Adam for about 3 years now - He is an amazing teacher! I took lessons before when I was younger but I quickly lost interest. I decided to get back into it later in life (I'm 35 now), but I still struggled to find the right teacher. One was too serious and the other was too relaxed and I felt like I wasn't actually making any progress. With Adam I got the best of both worlds! I was getting better at the guitar, and at the same time I was enjoying myself throughout the whole process. I'm still taking lessons with Adam and I would recommend that you do the same!
Paul
I took jazz guitar for two years from Adam. He’s a great teacher and excellent musician. As a former “cowboy chords” guitarist, I jumped from 5 to about 15 chords in a few weeks. Adam is patient and lots of fun. I still catch some of his gigs when I’m back in NYC.

My first priority is to inspire and motive. Find out the students wants and needs, then tackle them head on. Exploring proper voice techniques and how to use the voice. Proper breathing technique. Learn music theory fundamentals and understanding the language of music so it can be applied to the voice. Phrasing, intonation and song building.

"My 10 year old son has been taking lessons with Steve for almost 2 years. Prior to Steve, Nathan was enrolled in group lessons at the park district. After a unpleasant experience with the group lessons , we decided to try private lessons. Steve has done an amazing job working with Nathan. Like most kids, some days it is hard to keep his attention, but Steve does an amazing job. He has kept Nathan focused while still allowing him to have fun playing the guitar. Based on our experience, I would highly recommend Steve as a musical instructor."

"Mr. Hayes has been my favorite piano teacher so far (and he was my 7th piano teacher!). He taught me to really understand classical piano music and helped me to find my own voice and expression. Under his tutelage was when I really began to understand the depth and detail and most importantly how to really bring life and personality to even the simplest of music. My technique also improved vastly as Mr. Hayes is very detailed and disciplined when it came to breaking bad habits and using as much of your body to enhance and take control over your playing. Being Mr. Hayes’ student was life changing and a huge turnaround in my piano career, so I unequivocally absolutely positively recommend him to be your teacher."

Check out these songwriting tips from Austin, TX teacher Gfire M...   I started writing songs fairly early on at age 11, but I never thought about songwriting technique until later, when I studied with teachers from Berklee College, and in Los Angeles and Nashville.
