I've worked with students who came in struggling to find pitch and they've left with powerful voices. I've worked with professionals looking to open a new opportunity and they did. This isn't rocket science, there's no secret formula. But, I do work very hard to help you discover the unique and powerful qualities of your voice. This and proper technique are key.
You can include other instruments in these sessions.

I don't just train the voice, I train the singer. We won't do 37 scales and exercises. We will learn how to isolate muscle settings and recreate.

You'll learn how to create any vocal blend you desire, and you'll be able to do it on cue. No more mystery. No more wondering how things work, and hoping they do when you get on stage! If you really want to understand your voice, or you're a beginner and need help starting from scratch, we can do it here. :)

I've always had an interest in music, but never had any formal training. Laurel's tutelage has taken me from an absolute novice who could barely plink out a few notes to being able to read and play along with sheet music. She's employs a very collaborative style of teaching wherein we work together to identify the kinds of music I want to play, and make regularly progress towards reaching my goals. It's been a fantastic experience.
Kevin
I decided to wait until middle age to begin taking piano lessons so that my brain would be as resistant as possible to learning.

I'm glad I found a teacher as patient, friendly and knowledgable as Laurel. I've been taking lessons with her for almost a year. She tailors the sessions to my spooky interests and encourages me to push my abilities.

When we began I had barely touched a piano in my life. Now I'm able to read sheet music, recognize relative pitches and play a list of my favorite songs with independent hand movement.

I'd recommend Laurel to anyone who wants to learn piano regardless of age or skill level.
Ritu
Laurel has been my kid's piano teacher for a little over four years now. My kids absolutely love her, and I think that is what makes the difference because I want my kids to enjoy taking lessons. Laurel is very knowledgeable and patient. She makes sure students learn both reading music and playing by ear. My kids have come a long way with reading music and playing the piano, and I think a big reason is because of Laurel.

I'm a 49 year old trying to take my piano skills to the next level. Kelly is very patient and after just two lessons I've learned quite a lot. Looking forward to continuing with her and highly recommend.

Kelly is easy to connect with and took the time to find out what my interests were so that she could create a plan oriented towards my goals.
Ryder G.
We are return customers to Kelly. My son loved her as a piano teacher but we stopped when he was taking trumpet during school. Now that he’s over trumpet, we excitedly reenrolled with Kelly. She’s so encouraging and positive. We just did my son’s first online lesson through TakeLessons and it worked flawlessly. I’d recommend Kelly in a heartbeat.

"I can't say enough good things about Stephanie. She is by far the kindest soul you're ever going to meet. She cares so much: about music, about teaching, and about instilling all of her passion into you.

Before going to Stephanie, I was too paralyzed by self-doubt to sing - even to myself. I thought it was one of those talents you either had or you didn't. Growing up, my mom was always so keen to undermine my self esteem anytime I tried to sing that I just learned to keep quiet. I thought I must be one of the have-nots. Music (let alone singing) was some mysterious club that I could never join. Even though I always loved vocals and lyrics and the depths of emotion they tapped.

And then it all changed. My partner had been taking voice lessons from Stephanie for about 2 years and really wanted me to come along. So I sat in on one of their lessons, and after seeing them in action I just HAD to start taking lessons myself!

Perhaps the most obvious result from the outside is that in a couple months Stephanie took me from not even singing by myself to performing at one of her recitals in front of a bunch of people. Not saying I was great or anything, but I wasn't awful either. And even though getting me to come out of my shell like that is a big deal, I don't even consider it the most important part.

I didn't start because I wanted to be some amazing performer. I'm doing it because I want to experience the joy of some part of me I've always wanted to connect with. I couldn't have anticipated how, with Stephanie, I really just love the process. She's so knowledgeable and experienced, and she can communicate it all so well. Our lessons constantly involve a back & forth of my own introspection (what I'm feeling happening in my body), Stephanie's observations, and our work towards improvement. It's everything from zany, to nerdy, to personal. From hanging my head upside down to get the right airflow, to discussing the finer points of breathing technique, to working through my emotional connections to specific lyrics. She's so passionate, inspired, invested, and helpful, you can't help but get excited by osmosis!

Even on day one, Stephanie was empowering me. We got right to business. I didn't need to mumble at her about how inexperienced I was or anything - none of that mattered. She just laser-focused on the teaching, and it was seamless. She laid out the nuts and bolts of singing mechanics, which I would come to appreciate all the more in the months ahead (they're simple principles to conceptualize, but sooo hard to execute!). Then we established my vocal range: pluck a key on the piano, try to sing the note. Did I do it right? Awesome, next one. Did I do it wrong? No judgement, just the gentle prods, cues, and corrections to get me there. I didn't feel as much like an idiot as I expected. In fact, she made me feel good about myself, even as a rank novice; apparently I had a wide range and (despite not knowing which notes are which) a good ear for reproducing the tones I hear. I never once felt condescended to. Stephanie's genuinely kind and encouraging.

And to go from all that day-to-day process to singing in front of people, Stephanie's pulling so much weight along the way. She chose a song for me to perform that was within my abilities. (And she made sure I liked the song!) She was invested in practicing and instructing and focusing to make me the best I could be for Recital Day. (And she implored me to keep it fun & light!) She bent over backwards organizing the whole recital: booking the venue, coordinating with the A/V guy, hand-crafting invitations, rehearsing her own performance, editing together videos, dialing in her online clients so they could perform, and on and on. She pours her heart and soul into it. And after that's all done, we go back, watch the video, analyze what went right & wrong, and forge forward with the next game plan!

Stephanie's amazing. She teaches anyone from child to adult with great compassion, expertise, and moreover fun. Even if you're like me and thought you'd never be able to be musical, Stephanie will reach in and shine a light for you. I don't practice nearly enough outside of class to do justice to all the work Stephanie does in class. But all the same, I get better. And Stephanie cheers me on along the way."

"Supportive and Patient, Challenging and Fun!

In just the few months I have been taking lessons with Val, my voice has opened up to a whole other level. His exercises are challenging and, yes, some of his instructions make me giggle, but they work! He challenges me to explore just above my comfort zone and is patient and supportive. I am discovering new areas of my vocal chords and mouth I didn't even know existed, and I can tell it's only just the beginning. I have grown so much with Val I upped my lessons to twice a week because I just can't get enough! You think your voice is done and is what it is? It's not.

Mastering breath support - and continuing to improve it as you progress as a singer - is crucial to your success. Here, Toledo, OH teacher Elizabeth B. shares a helpful exercise to try...

It wasn’t until I finished my master's degree that I had any kind of understanding of how to sustain my air. Now that …
