About Summer

Our lessons will be laid-back, encouraging, and productive. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background. Each lesson will be based on the student's goals on the instrument and his or her interests. I focus on incorporating these goals and interests with the musical foundation necessary to be able to reach them, as well as exposing students to new musical ideas and styles. I am passionate about sharing musical knowledge with others and believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating an environment that is encouraging, fun, and individualized for each student. I have over 5 years of experience teaching piano and guitar to students of all ages and musical backgrounds. I ...

Summer has been a great teacher

I used to play piano, but hadn't played in about 8 years. I decided to start up again and Summer has been great at getting me back into the swing of things at a good pace. Highly recommended!

Besides being a fantastic vocalist, Monica is also a great teacher. She is very creative, patient and calm (no drama), but is still disciplined and persistent. She managed to get basic music theory into my thick skull and help me with sight reading, and did not yell at me when I didn't do my homework! The only downside is that she is so talented and well trained that she makes singing look effortless.

Monica is such a fantastic teacher. She is one of those people who really listens to the needs of the student, and gives her all at every lesson. Through her knowledge and experience, Monica has rebuilt my voice and my confidence from the bottom up. I highly recommend working with her!

I can sum up my opinion of Ian in one word, WONDERFUL !! I started piano lesson as a way to help me get thru the grieving process because I had just lost my husband. Ian is a very caring and understanding human being. His patience is amazing! In just 2 months, with his instruction, I was not only able to play basic tunes on the piano, BUT, I wrote a song. Pretty cool !! :)

About Dr. Daniel

Dr. C. was most recently described by Tim Page with the Washington Post as a “funny, exuberant and enormously likable” Papageno during Summer Opera Theater’s performance of The Magic Flute. Previously, the Post critiqued Daniel in Opera Theatre of Northern Virginia’s Barber of Seville as a “bright and bouncy” Figaro who delivered his lines with “aplomb.” Daniel has performed as a young artist in the Studio Programs of El Paso Opera, Kentucky Opera and Portland Opera. He has sung the roles of Sharpless in Madama Butterfly, Sid in Albert Herring, Figaro in The Marriage of Figaro, Belcore in L’elisir d’amore, Jupiter in Orphée aux enfers, Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus, Bottom in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Masetto in Don Giovanni, Schaunard in La Boheme, the Clock in L’Enfant et les ...

He is a great teacher and is very patient with someone who had no experience in singing or receiving lessons. My favorite part of each lesson is seeing his genuine excitement when there is improvement or when I hit a note I didn't think I could before. On top of his excellent teaching he is overall a very nice guy and someone who I enjoy talking to before an after each lesson about general things going on in the world and in each other's lives. A great experience overall and I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to be more confident with singing.

To be more clear. The time wasted was on discussing things that were not related t o vocal lessons. Credibility was given to was learned. As a student wanting to grow my vocal abilities I would have liked less chat. Simply wanted more focus on music less focus on anything else. The review is based upon on my personal experience. Dan wasn't a terrible coach, I just wanted just a little more focus on singing.

Excellent Instuctor

Martin has been my teacher for the past 2 years. He is professional as well as passionate about his craft. Martin is knowledgable and insightful, infusing education and history in the learning process. I’m learning to read music and plays songs that I never thought possible! Taking lessons from Martin increases my confidence and continues to be a rewarding experience.

Guitar
An invaluable teacher

Taking lessons for an instrument is a very important thing. However, finding the right teacher is more important in my opinion. Martin is one of those ideal teachers that really understands guitar, voice, composition, teaching and just music overall. Martin has given me plenty of material to learn such as exercises for rhythm, techniques, scales, solos to learn, books to read, and music to listen to. He has also given me many opportunities to perform in various settings. The atmosphere of the lesson is friendly yet it is still very focused. The primary focus of the lesson is always about how to make music and how to better yourself at your instrument. If you want to focus on improving yourself at making music, and your instrument, while still learning about other types of music and artists, then this is the teacher for you. Taking lessons with Martin has changed the way I look at guitar, composition and music for the better. I can confidently say that I would not be as good at guitar if I hadn't been taking lessons with Martin.

I've know Sara a long time. She is a joy of a person and a delightful singer. We actually met as kids at Interlochen Arts Camp when we were in middle school. Her passion for singing shined bright that summer. Our paths crossed again when we were at McGill University for our Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. There we had the chance to perform side by side in a number of projects that spanned opera, musical theater, straight theater, and baroque music. Everyday Sara brought a positive attitude and enthusiasm to all she did. I know she will be an awesome teacher for you because I have learned from Sara myself. Watching her perform Susana from the Marriage of Figaro was an absolute lesson in beautiful singing, truthful performance, and shockingly beautiful recitativo.

Sara is a wonderfully fun person. She will always make sure that lessons are productive, and informative, but also fun! She is absolutely amazing at teaching kids of all ages (and kids at heart). I know Sara will be a great teacher for you.

Sara and I did our MMus in Vocal Performance together at McGill University in Montreal, QC. Sara is an amazing colleague, always encouraging, down-to-earth, sincere, and smiling. Her performances are always a pleasure - she has a stunning voice, solid technique, and is extremely versatile (musical theatre, pop, opera.... you name it!). I highly recommend Sara's studio to any young singer who wants a well-rounded vocal training program.
