Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A MUSIC TEACHER- just take the dive and book with Monica!!! She is the absolute best. I am so self-conscious about my singing voice and Monica put me at ease immediately. She is so approachable and friendly. I've been in lessons for a few months and have already learned to so much that I can hear it in my voice. She is the absolute best.

Speaking well all starts with proper breath coordination. As a voice major I understand the inner workings of how the voice works, and the proper way in which to speak without strain. Often people speak on a "vocal fry" this is the gargly sound that is very low in the speaking register, not only is this bad for your voice it also doesn't make a good impression to employers or during an interview process or public speaking event. I encourage even my voice students to recognize that habit and break it in order for their singing voices to grow.

If you are interested in improving your public speaking skills, or feel strain when you speak for extended periods of time, it is worth considering taking vocal lessons because without this proper technique severe damage can occur to your voice.

About Jordan

Lesson Details/Services: Singing/Audition and Resume Coach: Lessons begin with stretching, vocal warm ups, scales, and extensive breath work, as well as resolving any tensions that may be hindering your vocal production. I then through collaboration with the student, work on beginning repert

Jordan is very skilled in Opera, Voice, and Teaching. She at once puts you at ease and quickly empowers you with knowledge and new skills. Although it may feel like baby-steps, you can hear and feel changes in your voice almost immediately . Studying Opera Voice is a long road of very hard work, so much to remember. There is a reason 4 year degrees are offered in it. But it is well worth it for those who have the stamina.

Jordan is very experienced and knowledgeable, I watched as she worked with me. She has an amazing ear. she hears nuances of differences in the slightest tone difference and can tell just what to do to help you sound wonderful. Looking forward to going back.
Thanks Jordan

Melissa is a great teacher for kids starting out in piano.
Thu T.
Though this is only the first piano teacher we've ever worked with, Melissa has set a very high bar. Her passion for music really shines through during her lessons. She adapts her lesson plans to my 7 year old daughter and moving at a pace that keeps her engaged. She even helps her learn some songs outside the lessons that my daughter started learning on her own! If there are any scheduling conflicts, she keeps the line of communication open and we are always able to figure it out together. We couldn't be happier. If you read through her positive reviews...they're all true! It's only been a month, but we look forward to having her around for a long time.

We love her passion for music and teaching. She came well prepare. Melissa started my daughter off on a lesson that was fun and challenging. We are excited for the next one!

"Rebecca Linton is an absolutely phenomenal acting teacher. I cannot express how grateful I am for her guidance and instruction. She is the best teacher I have ever had by far. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things acting. She knows how to push her actors to improve beyond where they thought they could go. She had led me to get multiple Superior ratings at acting competitions. She is familiar with a host of different acting methods including but not limited to those of Uta Hagen, Stanislavsky, and Sanford Meisner. I seriously cannot express how grateful I am for her. She had had a profound impact on my life and taught and cared for me in a way no other acting teacher in the world ever could!"
