Joshua is great at his craft. I spent a lot of time since I moved to the East Coast looking for an voice coach who understand what my voice needed. Joshua stepped right in and put into words what I have been trying to tell other for a long time. He's truthful and I know I can trust what he say. That was important to me. I want to say you Joshua. I now have something to look forward to.

Thanks Joshua!

Lessons with Joshua are the highlights of my week. I'm a busy professional who works ~60 hour weeks every week, but lessons with Joshua motivates me to practice on top of that.

Firstly, he is a great singer himself, works in the theater business and performs regularly - which is what you want in a teacher (you don't want do _learn_ from someone who don't _do_ what he/she's teaching). A well-trained singer like him can recognize instantly what you're doing wrong and what needs to be done to fix it. He has well-developed ideas ready for you to utilize to improve your technique. They include analogies, ways to think about your body and your resonators, etc. His teaching also helps you understand what you need to do to sing in a particular style (in which you may not always want to sing "correctly") and what is healthy for your voice vs what is not.

Secondly, his lessons are enormously fun. He achieves a great balance of keeping things light and keeping things professional. We get work done each lesson but it never feels like work. I always leave lessons feeling like it was too short. I would probably book three-hour lessons every time if I could.

I have only received 3 lessons so far and all have been a wonderful experience. I am not a professional singer nor have I ever had any lessons singing. I simply just want to learn 1 song to sing to my future husband. OJ has made every lesson fun while I am learning and I know in time I will reach my goal.

Fun, Easy to Work with

This teacher has an easy, fun loving spirit. I have learned important tips to improve my singing, such as, to name a few, where to place my tongue, the importance of enunciation, and scaling from high to low notes without breaking. I would recommend him as a teacher.

Great Teacher

Throughout my life, I have been singing in Gospel choirs and for years, I have been an alto. After meeting with OJ, he helped me find my voice. He was able to determine my vocal range and I found out that I was never an alto, but a lyric soprano. I was so shocked, but excited at the same time. I thought that was amazing because he helped me discover my true vocal range. OJ is knowledgeable, patient, and fun to work with.

Mr. Johnson is a FABULOUS violin instructor. I haven't played in 20 years, and after a few lessons my technique is coming back. His teaching style is one where he pushes you beyond your expectations. He's an excellent teacher for beginners and experienced violinists. I also love that he is so talented in many genres of music...such a gifted violinist. Hope to play like him again soon. I highly recommend this teacher.

Raycurt has developed and implemented a constructive way for beginners to understand the violin, comprehend music theory, and figure out how to make this instrument sound good!

Belinda L.

Baltimore, MD

My experience with classical voice technique has helped those with vocal ailments such as nodules to those whose careers require vocal stamina and vocal projection. The emphasis is on posture, breathing, and techniques that reduce the tension on the vocal cords.

About Belinda

*** Lesson Details *** NOTE: I prefer to teach students ages 11 & up.  I will accommodate younger students, but as vocal development is a direct reflection of physical development (the instrument is the body), we will be unable to delve deeply into technique.  Instead, the curriculum for younger students will include musicianship and piano skills; they will be more of music lessons that incorporate singing rather than "vocal" lessons.  My current studio consists of all sorts of singers including classical, musical theater, R&B, and pop.  In classical voice lessons, we will be learning songs not only in English, but also Italian, German, and French. Classical voice lessons may not be for everyone, however, and we will learn repertoire that suits the interests of each student. I ...

I have been working with Belinda for a little over 2 years. Every lesson, she challenges me to be better than before. What I love most about her style, is she customizes her style of teaching for the student. I am a very imagery oriented person, and she always helps me to visualize things in ways that makes sense to me. My singing has dramatically improved during my time with Belinda, and I would recommend her to anyone in a heart beat. Every lesson is different, every lesson is challenging in a new way, and every time I walk away feeling like that was the best lesson I've ever had. Thank you Belinda!!

Excellent teacher!

From the very first lesson, my daughter felt that she was learning a great deal from Belinda. Belinda cares about her students and is good with different styles of singing. She's always very professional, but fun at the same time.

Zachary B.

Baltimore, MD

The speaking voice is a powerful tool in essentially any area of work or performance. We sometimes take for granted the need of care and attention to our precious voices. You can treat the voice, regardless of your usage, as an instrument. No matter the demands, I can help you improve your speaking voice!

As an operatic performer, I thoroughly understand the importance of building a strong technical background for any level of singing or professional speaking. My other skills, like instrumental instruction, studying skills, accent reduction, and academic preparation are all offered through TakeLessons as well. As a teacher, I love having fun in lessons and building strong connections with my students at absolutely any level.
