Serena isn't only a talented pianist, she's a skilled instructor as well. She teaches everything you need to understand piano theory, improve finger strength and agility and acquire the best hand posture.

Serena tailors her lessons towards her student. Depending on my weekly progress, she recommended a detailed routine to consolidate my weaknesses and push me to improve.

Finally, Serena is eloquent and friendly. She explains things in a simple manner and does her best to understand you, your lifestyle and your objectives, all to provide the best experience . And she totally nails it.

Thank you Serena! :D

Serena is great. She is patient but pushes you just enough to see results. She helps you with singing technique as well as with techniques to make the song more genuine and authentic.

I've had about 3 lessons with Amrita so far and she's really great. Accounting topics that professors talk about in class that can be hard at times Amrita breaks down and makes it really easy to understand. She definitely knows her stuff and you can definitely depend on her to teach you and help you in every way. I highly recommend her!!! :)

"Thank you, Vanessa Pace!

THANK YOU, VANESSA!

A year ago when I was shopping for a voice teacher, Take Lessons provided a wide selection of viable options. As a senior adult, I was feeling a need to clarify my "Call" in life, and to return to some of the personal strengths that I hope to continue using in the last 1/3 of my life. In my profile I indicted I was looking to maintain the voice that has been a part of every aspect of my life from theatre to singing, to preaching, to creating radio spots. When I mentioned that goal to Vanessa in our first meeting she countered: “We won’t just maintain it, we’ll restore it!” What a confidence booster that was!

Although my life work mostly involves speaking, I also have a love of singing—something I have participated in one way or another for the last 50 years. I wanted to overcome the “old lady” vibrato syndrome if possible and to be able to sing without concern that those within earshot would shudder.

In addition, I was looking for certain attributes in a teacher:
• A person who is at my stage of life or beyond.
• A person who is knowledgeable in both singing and speech.
• A person with a personal teaching style that is positive and encouraging.

ENTER VANESSA PACE!

Vanessa is confident and knowledgeable. In addition, she has customized my learning program to suit my current objectives, which have changed from one week to the next depending upon my professional assignments from work and my personal creative pursuits.

In this year Vanessa brought me to a point of “breaking through” inhibitions and moving beyond what I thought I’d be able to do. Her constant use of cues to put me on track with the use of my voice has been invaluable! She compared letting sound pass through the vocal cords (without strain) in the same way breath becomes music through a clarinet. Using words like “Pull up your spine—you’re two inches taller!”; and reminders to draw on the strength of (underused) larger muscles to support the efforts of diaphragm have been helpful in numerous practical matters of everyday life.

Vanessa is inspiring in that she is a life-long learner and passionate about things to the degree that she invests in them with intelligent research, attention to science, and a spiritual passion that drives her to draw out the best in her students in similar fashion.

If you are looking for a voice teacher, Vanessa will work with you where you are--and help you move toward the goal of where you are hoping to be.

I am thanking God this Thanksgiving Season for Vanessa Pace.

"Super Enjoyed our first online class..even with some technical difficulties due to my antivirus software firewall, or browser or the weak wifi in my place or something...Truly enjoyed it. Jason was very kind and patient, while we tried to fix the technical aspect. Once we got started on the phone because video and voice didn't work; I really learned a lot, and gathered insight into Acting that I couldn't get from a book or other classes that I have taken. I'm truly blessed I get the opportunity to work and learn from Jason. I am super excited and can't wait till our next lesson. I will call technical support at Take Lessons to get technical help to fix the issues, and will buy a portable wifi hotspot if I have to solve the video and sound issue. Jason is patient, kind, very nice, professional, extremely knowledgeable, I can't say enough good things. Thank you very much for all your help and your time. I look forward to the journey ahead... Take care. Aloha. -Bobby"
