I am not trying to toot anyone's horn but I have had three sessions with her and already I feel and hear a good difference in my voice. I have more confidence with singing infront of others and I can sing songs I have sang for years with more confidence and it sounds much better. I look forward to more sessions and spending a year or however long it takes to get my voice perfect!

He is a great teacher! He balances technique with expression in his teaching, from learning scales to performing pieces. He made it challenging, but fun. He taught me and all my siblings as well and they have all grown to appreciate music and gained skills that they use in other areas of music and learning.

Having worked with Nikita and knowing him personally, I hold him in very high regards. Not only Nikita is an outstanding performer and musician, but he also is a very strong teacher, who holds high level of professionalism. Nikita finds individual approach to each one of his students, helps them find passion for music within themselves and express it in their performance, all of which are key pedagogical qualities. Having music as an essence of his life, Nikita naturally sparks love for music in other people. Nikita gave me many helpful tips on how to become a better performer, as well as how to have the confidence to be one. But above all, Nikita has a very bright personality, a very lighthearted sense of humor and a natural ability drive people towards him. Nikita is a very inspiring young man.

I've been taking Nikita's lessons for last 3 years and not only gained guitar playing and signing skills but also greatly enjoyed each and every lesson. Nikita's ability to adjust the education with respect to your level and personal interests is just amazing: classic music and modern songs, theory and practice, even your own favorite musical compositions make the educational program. This is much more than I could imagine!
Nikita has also been teaching my son for 5+ years and the result is simply awesome!
Thanks a lot Nikita, looking forward to keep attending your classes!

She was a fantastic bass teacher who really help me bring my talent to the next level, because of her I am now one of the best bass players in both my school and my church, and I am planning on getting a minor degree in music thanks to her.

Maria is always upbeat and knows exactly what you require to move your guitar playing forward. The lessons are always interesting and challenging and build on your last lesson. If there is a passage that is too difficult, she will break in down to understandable pieces. I would recommend Maria to anyone who has the desire to move their playing forward.

Mount Joy, PA

About Christopher

Hello! I am a Juilliard trained Opera Singer/Vocal Coach. I have been teaching voice since 1999. I have an undergraduate, Masters and Ph.D in Music and have performed at some of the leading opera hous
es in the world. I am trained to teach Opera, Broadway, Musical Theater and Popular vocal styles! It all starts with good vocal technique that can be transferred to all vocal genres.
When I approach a teaching situation, the first things I always ask myself are how I can draw the students in, how I can make them excited about learning what I am teaching, and how I can stimulate their intellectual and musical interests, thereby inspiring them to seek out further opportunities for music learning and experience beyond the particular context of the course or lesson.
