Gina is excellent! I highly recommend her. My son is so excited each week when he knows his lesson is coming. She’s incredibly professional and if you’re looking for singing lessons I would not look any further. Ps We were really hesitant to do online lessons but even when Cove it is over we wouldn’t switch now. The experience is great.
Samantha
Gina’s wonderfully encouraging and is helping me take the skills I already have and fine tuning them. She’ll listen to me sing a song the whole way through and then we’ll go back and work on specific sections. She gives good pointers and can give me vocal exercises to try to fix a specific problem. I like that we use YouTube karaoke videos because I can choose any song with a karaoke version and I can use the same video to practice at home as I do with her.
Joy
A wonderful person and fabulous singer! Gina is incredibly talented and super helpful, kind and encouraging to kids! Highly recommended!

"Michelle Voicing Me!

Hello,

I have been told I mumble when speaking for "some" many years now, even my Mother complains! I started with Michelle right after my 40th birthday this year in Feb.

Michelle's class is something for me to really look forward to every week. She can easily identify some of the reasons I probably "mumble" my words, and is quick to correct the problems, but not at all offensive! If that makes any sense?

She lets me sing songs I like and has a great way of explaining how the sounds should come out.

The whole experience with Takelessons.com has been quite easy, not a lot of pressure. A condition of my raise in salary was that I take some sort of voice course, because my boss could not always understand my messages or conversations! He seems to be very satisfied with my progress.

If you decide to got with Michelle, Which you should, you will really get all that you pay for and much more!

So you know this is not a "glorified" friends review... she has not cats or dogs to play with while you are there..:) But she is a better voice and therapy than you will ever receive anywhere, for you or your children!

"Excellent and Inspiring Teacher

I feel very fortunate to have connected with Tim to be my vocal instructor.

Tim is courteous, professional, enthusiastic, encouraging, and a true subject matter expert. His knowledge extends beyond vocal study broadly to music theory and to performance training; all skills which must coalesce within a student to create a competent vocal performer. That is what's happening with me under Tim's instruction.

Tim is keeping track of my vocal range which is steadily increasing, and I am hearing the results of my voice as its quality is honed to ever finer skill levels. In addition to vocal tone and quality, proper and song-appropriate diction is analyzed and adjusted, as well as breathing, posture, and projection; all while being encouraged to remember to put my own signature on a song.

I am being taught not only proper methods of singing, but a new and far deeper appreciation for the art of singing as a whole.

Thank you Tim."

Washington, DC Singing Venues for Everyone

By Mariana P. - DC Voice Teacher

When Washington, DC is mentioned, most people immediately think of politics. Great opportunities for singers or singing lessons in Washington, DC would not be the first thought on someone’s mind. As serious as it may seem, the Washington, DC area has an eclectic mix of singing venues for all performance levels and music genres. The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts houses the Washington National Opera and also offers free concerts every day at 6:00 pm on their Millennium Stage where any musical group can perform after an audition. DC is also home to many small theater companies which hold open auditions for anyone interested; musical theater, show choirs and jazz bands are among the most prominent genres.

There are plenty of venues where students taking singing lessons in Washington, DC can cultivate their skills. If Rock ‘n Roll is your trade, the U Street corridor hosts many rock spots such as The Black Cat, Velvet Lounge and of course, the U Street Music Lounge. For those who prefer smaller spaces with open mic opportunities, Busboys and Poets in Arlington, VA and Jammin’ Java in Vienna, VA should not be missed. Let’s not forget those who sing just for personal enjoyment. If you ever want to experience the thrill of being on stage, karaoke is the way to go. Café Japone is a local favorite as well as Peyote Café in Adams Morgan. Little Miss Whiskey’s Golden Dollar takes the karaoke experience to another level, allowing its patrons to come in costume or providing them for those who come unprepared. Now that you know where to go to build on the skills you are already learning from your singing lessons in Washington, DC, what are you waiting for? Get out there and sing!
