Singing
Finding my inner voice

It's been a year since I started singing lessons with Shelly in my home. Besides her extreme talent, that she is reliable, trustworthy, patient and kindhearted, and my 4 dogs love her as much as I do, Shelly has been the perfect singing teacher for me. I am not a stage performer, nor do I intend to be, but I am a trial attorney and do speak in front of audiences often. After some health issues last year, I decided to conquer the stress in my life and find my inner voice. I love to sing but have had no lessons and rarely sing in front of others. I am not even sure I have any talent. Shelly has been wonderful with helping me find out if I do, but even more importantly, she allows me to have fun with singing. Finding my inner voice is allowing me to find inner peace and strength, and this has been such a great way to relieve stress. I am loving it.

Gained more confidence since my first lesson

Shelly is a wonderful vocal coach. We always have a lot of fun and I always look forward to my lessons. She helps me feel more confident about singing in front of people. Because of Shelly, my singing has made a big improvement since last year. She is an amazing teacher and I am lucky to have her as my coach.

Bryan B. Shelton, CT

About Bryan

I have enjoyed music as long as I can remember! Whether listening, playing, writing, or teaching…I find great pleasure in the creative outlet that music provides. At the age of five I began studying classical piano, in elementary school I studied trumpet, in middle school I picked up the guitar and bass, and in high school these experiences collided as I began to write and arrange for various ensembles. Playing in a rock band all through high school and college, I've had opportunity to record two albums and to tour regionally in the North East. Receiving a Bachelor of Music in Music Education at Gordon College in Wenham, MA, I studied classical guitar with David Patterson for four years while I gained much experience in various areas of classroom education (band, choir, theory, ...

Thank you for teaching me how to play the guitar. I learned how to play a song and it was really fun because I had no experience at all.

Thank you for teaching me how to play the guitar. It is a great skill that I now have and will cherish for the rest of my life. I have many great memories at your studio. All the laughs and the great jams and good times. I'm no "Mel Bay" but I can read music which is an extremely useful skill you taught me. I play in a guitar club at school and I am one of the best because I know my scales, keys and the right way to use them. I will never stop playing because you showed me how much fun it is. I am so grateful for that. Stay in touch. Overall just THANK YOU!

My son has been taking lessons with Jeff for a year now and can honestly say he is one of the best teachers he has had. He not only teaches my son to play songs, but also teaches him how to read notes, the theory and history of music. My son enjoys and looks forward to meeting with Jeff for his lessons every week. And I extremely happy and thrilled to have found him.

I've been taking lessons with Jeff for over 6 years. He is the most knowledgeable instructor I've ever met and is fluent all music styles with an in depth understanding of music theory. Our lessons are always fun, entertaining and educational. We always mix music theory with any songs we are trying to figure out and Jeff always wants you to leave with having learned something new, not just how to play a song.
I really value the time I spent in Jeff's lessons and would recommend him to anyone interested in pursuing guitar lessons.

Jeff is a great guitar teacher! He is very knowledgeable and I really enjoy my lessons. I have been playing guitar for more than 30 years and I have tried different teachers. Until I met Jeff, I could not find a teacher that could assess my knowledge and add to it. Jeff is the only guitar teacher that was able to understand where I was at and provide insights and improvements right away. Other teachers all focused on what they wanted to teach, not what I needed to learn. If you are an experience guitar player and want to improve, Jeff is the guy. My lessons cover multiple styles but mostly rock, blues, and jazz.

Jeff always has something new for me that is interesting & fun. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
