She has helped me tremendously! We have a good time learning and laughing during my lessons with her. She had also helped me to stop listening to what others think about my voice and focus on believing in myself as I learn and progress. Risks l thanks

Desiree puts the fun in fundamentals!

I decided to take voice lessons for pleasure as a hobby to keep my mind off of the stresses of daily life. I had a lot of confidence issues to get over when I started taking lessons with Desiree; mainly because I didn't want to embarrass myself like those people I make fun of on American Idol. Her non-threatening teaching style has been the perfect fit for me...although she does raise her voice at me when I judge myself too harshly, but I won't count against her ;) My confidence has soared and I feel that I'm a much bolder and more comfortable singer. I’m enjoying every minute of discovering my voice with Desiree. I've still got some work to do but I'm confident she'll help me reach my goals.

Voices are a Gift

Desiree has helped my sister and I develop our vocal skills and work to our full potential. She has also helped us realize that our voices are a gift and we need to treasure them. Desiree has strengthened our confidence in signing in front of people as well as signing in general. She is more than just a teacher she is a role model and a person we feel we can count on.

I love my professor. I think it's an amazing opportunity for kids and adults to get a chance to learn voice and piano lessons with Kelly. She's an amazing vocalist and I like how she shows the voice techniques of using the diaphragm. It really helps. Also she's a great pianist and I like how she teaches the importance in ear training, music theory and it's history. She's Great!! Good Job and Thank you!

We hired Kelly to teach 3 of our children. We paid for 5 lessons each. We got almost 3. She showed up late for the 1st two and did not make up the time. She cancelled the 3rd and tried to get me to let her make up the 1 1/2 hours of lessons in an hour at the next scheduled date. At the next she cut my youngest child's lesson 10 minutes short. Then she called me today to cancel again at the last minute and tried to claim that she did not know that she had lessons on her schedule even though we still had 2 original ones paid for and had just on 10/30 paid for 3 more for each child. Very Unprofessional!!!

Jennifer is a very easy teacher to deal with. Jennifer was a very responsive to my daughters needs for both scheduling and material and made things very easy on us.
Jennifer helps you feel very comfortable while learning and she's not even afraid to try new things or look at something from a different angle. I highly recommend Jennifer!

Jen has been working with my daughter for only 4 months but her growth in that amount of time has been amazing. She absolutely loves Miss Jen! Jen is an outstanding teacher and makes my daughter feel so comfortable and relaxed. Her favorite time of the week is when she can work with Jen. We are so honored and grateful that she is working with our daughter, we couldn't ask for a better teacher. The best around!

I started working with Jen a little over two months ago, and in those two months I have learned more about the music business than I have in my entire life. Ms. Jen works hard to make sure her students get the most out of every lesson. She is a genuine person with a huge heart and dedication to the music field. In every lesson, Ms. Jen warms us up well by working on breathing techniques. We are always laughing and having a ball, there is never a dull moment with Ms. Jen! I would recommend Jen to anyone interested in taking lessons. She is an inspiration to all of her students, and the best teacher I have ever had!

Thank for the great lesson! I'll definitely have some excellent stuff to work on. Also, I just wanted to say thanks again for doing this online instruction. You're a great teacher and this method fits perfect with my highly mobile life. I'll be in touch soon to schedule another round of lessons.
Zach from Denver Corado
I was skeptical about taking music lessons by Skype, but thought I would give it a try since there are no accordion teachers in my area. Skype lessons with David have turned out to be quite a pleasure and much better than the best I could have imagined. First of all, David pays such close attention to my playing that he picks up on little details that I thought might go by unnoticed through a video lesson ( e.g. fingering and minor issues with my accordion reeds). Also, because David is so personable, the lessons are fun and I forget that we are not actually in the same room together. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, I have been taking weekly lessons for only two months and my playing has already improved considerably. All and all, I am extremely happy with my accordion lessons with David through Skype: I have an attentive teacher, the lessons are fun, I am getting much better, and the only thing I'm missing from taking lessons with a teacher in person is the drive!
Bruno (student) New York City
I have been learning the accordion with David for a few months now and would happily recommend his Skype tutoring service. I have progressed well since starting the lessons and really enjoyed David's teaching style. He covers all the basics and fundamentals necessary for my level but also focuses on chord structures and progressions with an eye on mor advanced technique.
Stuart Dorin, (student) London,England
I love the Skype lessons! It allows me to learn how to play accordion from the comfort of my own home. I just set up a time to meet and then do the lesson! It's quick, easy and painless. David is very knowledgeable about the accordion and I have learned so much from him in only a few months. I would highly recommend the Skype lessons with David to anyone who wants to learn accordion, but may be hesitant about online lessons.
