About Gina

I have been making music my entire life. I began studying the violin at age 5 and the piano at age 6, and then when I was 8 started singing in school and church choirs. I received a music scholarship to high school which kept me busy accompanying people and participating in various instrumental and vocal groups. I began taking voice lessons as a freshman at New York University, and I'm now in year 9 of my vocal studies, year 13 of my violin-playing and year 22 of my piano-playing. After graduating from school, I sang in several operas with the Amato Opera company in New York, and staged a recital here in Philadelphia at the First Unitarian Church in which I sang and also accompanied another singer. I have been a professional member of the Bach Choir of Pittsburgh and the ...

Gina is an excellent voice teacher! I am completely new to singing and she is very patient with me. She is very flexible with lesson times. She wants me to have fun, learn vocal techniques, and sing exactly what I find fun to sing. She is great at pointing out what I'm doing wrong and giving me concrete ways to improve. I would definitely recommend her for vocal lessons.

Gina has been teaching me piano and voice for the past 9 months. I look forward to our voice and piano lessons all week long.

I am a hobbyist adult beginner musician and a full-time MBA student. As an adult student who just wants to play popular music and doesn't read music well, I didn't think I'd be able to find a teacher as accommodating as Gina. She is patient and lets me drive our music selections. The most fun part is seeing myself progress week after week under her instruction. I can play songs I never thought possible now. She can teach anybody how to sing harmonies. She even recorded some of our collaborations and then edited them to point out areas where I can improve. She is extremely dedicated to her students' success. Honestly I can't recommend her more highly.

About Barbara

I have been singing for as long as I can remember. It is my very favorite activity. I have transformed my love of singing into a career. I have been teaching music lessons for over 25 years. When you study with me you will have the advantage of that experience. I have extensive experience teaching students of all ages. Throughout my teaching career I have taught students with varied backgrounds and diverse needs. If you are a person who was told not to sing by your music teacher, don't give up! I have taught many children and adults to match pitches and improve their singing voices. I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Moravian College and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Temple University. While at Temple, I studied standard vocal repertoire and ...

I have a 14 year old who has had the privilege to have Susan teach him the tenor sax - and he has advanced remarkably in a short time! She has worked with him in music tastes, etc... The take lessons service has been easy to set up and utilize, too. I would HIGHLY recommend...Excellent instructor (and good location for Delaware County folks) You won't be disappointed!

As a violin teacher, I am impressed by his ability to work with a variety of age groups and skill levels. He relates well to children and brings joy and humor to every lesson, while explaining the mechanics and the physics behind the technical aspect of music to more mature students.

I highly recommend Stephen to anyone who has a desire to learn the violin and a passion for music!

Elicia is a wonderfully talented Violinist! My daughter started lessons two years ago and loves going every week. Elicia is encouraging and very positive, she will point out areas that need to be re-worked. If something is not up to par she will add it to the lesson the following week and allow for more practice time. Elicia is truly wonderful I couldn't have asked for a better instructor for my daughter! I am so lucky to have found her on take lessons.
