Great. Very personable and easy to relax with. Great exercises and homework I feel is doable as my first ever vocal lesson. Can't wait for my next session :)

My 5 year old daughter has become a stronger dancer with Ms. Kelly as she builds up for her recital. We are truly lucky to find such a dedicated and talented teacher.
Tracey
I was very lucky to have found Kelly. I had always dreamed of having artistic talent but I am not a naturally good singer. Within two years, I have gone from singing in the shower to having developed to stage performance. Kelly has taught me so much from the artistic expression of singing to the mechanics of turning my voice into an instrument. She has an incredible ability to listen to my voice and pinpoint the exact adjustment I need to make it sound great. She's such a fun person to be around that I always look forward to my next lesson. Her positive attitude and approach is also a testament to her high level of professionalism. She provides feedback that is positive. but also helps me improve She is the perfect combination of teacher and coach and I would highly recommend her for anyone interested in singing.

Private Accent Reduction Teacher

I love to teach accent reduction! My students are amazed once they learn how Americans really speak and that they can learn to speak like that too. From the first few classes, you will find that your attention is immediately drawn to how you are pronouncing not only individual words but complete sentences, and how your ear will quickly become attuned to the reductions and links that Americans make. We will use a variety of sources to target the most challenging areas for you, and you will have the opportunity to record our classes for your personal use. The first lesson will Include a review of your diagnostic test so that we can see what areas you need to focus on first. It's really fun and exciting to see how quickly your accent develops into one that people can understand better and that you feel more confident using. Let's do this!

Jeanne is AMAZING. I have been taking accent reduction lessons from her for a year now and I have really improved. Sometimes people tell me that I have no accent when I told them it’s not my first language!

I really enjoy taking Accent Reduction with Ms. Jeanne. She has a unique technique to teach English as a second language. I had my first class today and look forward to many more.
Elena Yuryeva
Jeanne is an amazing teacher! I live in US for many years and I always spoke English without difficulty, but I noticed that I have an accent. Finally I decided to take care of that part. After taking a couple of classes that I mispronounced a lot ofbasic words and was unaware of some sounds.
Jeanne is very helpful with understanding the difficulties of your personal mistakes and she is very easygoing, making classes to feel very casual. She helps you to relax and become more confident.

Norwood is extremely humble and easy to work with. He never made me feel like I wasn’t good enough but always made me feel like I could reach a higher level of excellence for my unique range. He embraces each voice as its own and meets the student where they are at. He is extremely knowledgeable on how sounds are created, how space is made in the voice, and he is able to communicate that knowledge effectively to the student. In short, I loved having Norwood as a teacher.
Tina
My 10-year-old son Lucky started taking lessons with Norwood a few months ago, and it’s like a star has been born! He has seen a big boost in his confidence, his pitch has gotten much better, and he really enjoys the lessons. He has even started performing! The changes have happened very fast.

Norwood is an excellent teacher! He is very knowledgeable and is very kind. I was always very shy to sing, but Norwood helped me overcome that!

I highly recommend Bill. I was looking for a voice coach to help me strengthen my voice for work presentations and found Bill on take lessons. I was happy to learn the Bill also frequently presents. Not only has he helped improve my speaking voice, he's also helped me improve my presentation style and calm the pre-jitters. Bill is prepared, on time, and a very professional. He's been so helpful, that I just recently signed up for even more lessons! Don't hesitate. If you want to get better, Bill's will help make it happen.

Like Adrian said, the basic package is pretty good and have solid information on how to be more efficient at using the vocal instrument better.

But Bill has a hard time being specific, if I didn't ask him specific question that he just resort into generic statement,

From time to time, he even has this passive aggressive attitude. I signed up to improve my speech and accent because I know I need to work on it. I don't know why he sometimes need to emphasis on that almost to the point of gaslighting but hey maybe he just had a couple of bad days.

There are four type of knowledge:
the knowledge that you know you know,
the knowledge that you know that you don't know,
the knowledge that you don't know that you know,
the knowledge that you don't know that you don't know.
If I know what I don't know then I wouldn't need to sign up for a class, I would just work on it.
People sign up for classes to move the fourth and third category into the first and second, so here is the lesson every instructor in every subjects should probably know.
Mary Lou H.
Bill is a patient, knowledgeable, and experienced instructor. His lessons are well-planned with effective exercises to reinforce the lessons being taught. What I love the most is that these are one-on-one, in-person (online) lessons that provide immediate personalized feedback.
Learning from Bill has made me more comfortable with my ability to give presentations at work.
I would recommend Bill to anyone looking to improve their speaking skills.
