I am patient, but will also challenge my student to progress naturally. I have been teaching classical guitar for seven years and take great enthusiasm in it.

Tony was awesome. This was my first ever lesson, despite having "played" for many years - Tony was friendly and gentle in his approach to showing me all my bad technique and habits and how to correct them. I'm looking forward to many more lessons and growing my ability through his guidance!
Bonnie
Tony is an excellent instructor. His style of teaching emphasizes clear instruction, valuable feedback and attainable goals within a friendly and calm environment. The pieces he chooses for study are appropriately challenging and musically enjoyable. The in-home lessons were very convenient and he was professional in all respects. I recommend him highly!

Alex was very professional and connected very well with my 9 years old.

Alex is a great instructor. He is very direct, clear, pays close attention to all the parts of playing cello and tells you what is wrong with positive reinforcement. He, especially, pays attention to detail and is concerned on getting a good sound.

This category of singing is listed under my profile for singers who are unsure about the genre of music they wish to pursue, or who may want to pursue more than one at the same time. My studio focuses on operatic and classical voice, with some reach into musical theater. I also offer limited voice coaching in other genres like screamo and metal with focus on healthy voice production and safety.

About Kristen

I want to dispel the myth that only a select few are "gifted" with beautiful voices. Singing is like a sport; it is a skill requiring refined muscular coordination, which anyone can improve with practice and focused instruction. My teaching experience encompasses students of all ages and abili

I love Kristen!
She's so good at explaining the most confusing things about singing technique (which for a beginner is a lot). She's very patient and it's heartwarming when she gets excited about the times I do something right. I trust Kristen with my voice and I like how she encourages me to do hard but fun repertoire. Would definitely recommend!

P.S. Her voice is absolutely beautiful. You know you have a good teacher when she demonstrates something and you think, "I want to sound like that."

A very good teacher for a beginner!
Ryan
Great first lesson. Broke everything down very nicely and got me excited to excel.

I teach all types of music, but I perform with an authentic southern blues style that I learned from the source, having grown up in Atlanta. I am a fingerpicking and slide specialist, using standard and several open tunings. I've been a professional musician and educator for over 20 years, having played an average of over 100 shows a year for more than a decade, and have released 3 successful albums. I love teaching new and old players of all skill levels. Patience is something I have plenty of. :)

"I've been taking lessons from Ahmad for a few months now. It's great. He adapts himself well to my pace. There's a good balance between music theory, real world examples, and practice exercises in his lessons. I really feel I'm learning from someone who has an incredible amount of knowledge and experience."

"Stephanie is an incredibly trained singer, that is willing to share her insights with her students and tailor lessons to meet your needs. She went over the basics and focused on building the breath, but also dug in with me to help me uncover my voice. She was efficient, incredibly reasonably priced and lovely to bat. Anyone would be lucky to have her for private lessons. I look forward to growing my voice with her."

"Stephanie is an excellent teacher and a wonderful person you can connect with. Whether you're a beginner or already vocally trained, she will be a great teacher for you. She will make you feel comfortable when you're feeling self conscious about your voice, which we all do. I am also a Berklee College of Music graduate who took a couple semesters of beginner vocal lessons, but feel like I've understood singing more with her. She's grown up in a musical family, with a mother who works in speech therapy, so she is excellent at understanding and teaching singing from a physical perspective, which is very important. Teachers I've worked with before would assume more that you would connect with these things naturally. She is very talented, professional, funny, and kind. Fantastic vocal teacher!"
