Ian Lewis P.

Watertown, MA

About Ian Lewis

Hi! I am excited to work with students of all ages and levels, and I am here to help you unlock the treasury of our music together. I'm devoted to passing on the joy of music-making to performers of any age, whether you are passionate about musical theater, classical music, or just for the fun of making music.
As a soloist, I maintain an active career throughout the United States and Europe. I am the artistic director of Les Enfants d'Orphée, an international ensemble dedicated to the performance of French Baroque music. I am on the roster of Boston Lyric Opera, and have had engagements wit
h Lowell House Opera, Opera Brittenica, Cantata Singers, Opera Providence, and concerts and TV appearances with the award-winning folk music group Voice of the Turtle, as well as numerous recitals all over the world.

I am a published composer and lyricist of children's music, and have over a decade of successful studio teaching experience with students of all ages. I hold a Bachelors of Music in Voice Performance from Westminster Choir College and a Masters of Music in Voice and Vocal Pedagogy from Longy School of Music of Bard College. Whether you are just starting to sing or are an artist looking to solidify your technique and style, I have the latest techniques to make learning to sing fun and effective for you.

*** Lesson Details ***
The atmosphere in my studio is student-centered and informal, and is built around the student's goals and stylistic tastes and abilities. Whether it is your first voice lesson or you are a working professional, the curriculum will be formed completely around you as an individual artist want to achieve.

Within 6 months of study, you will have a firm basis in vocal technique in your chosen style, and a firm grasp of the repertoire that you love to sing. Most importantly, however, you will develop a love of music and singing that you will keep throughout your life. If you are a parent, I encourage your involvement, and you are most welcome to sit in on your child's lessons and share in the music-making experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full piano, music stand, private room, seating for parents.

*** Specialties ***
I have experience in performing and teaching musical theater, early music, opera, Mediterranean folk music, diction, music theory, and Shakespearean acting technique. I live on-and-off in Paris, and speak fluent French. I am a member of the American Translator's Association. I direct the acclaimed ensemble Les Enfant's d'Orphée dedicated to the French baroque, and I am currently a member of the Boston Schola Cantorum, and Voice of the Turtle, which has over 12 professional studio recordings.

Fantastic teacher. He has helped my daughter (high-schooler) immensely after only a few lessons. She has gained so much confidence, and thanks to Ian's tutelage, she succeeded in her audition for the school musical. Ian has a broad repertoire of music knowledge and experience, and even though we only have tapped him for broadway-style singing, it's clear he could help with so much more. He also has a laid-back yet professional personality and is very flexible with scheduling. If you are looking for a voice teacher, you should not pass up the opportunity to work with Ian.

Ian is by far the best voice teacher whom I have ever had. He really listens to his student, which is the first and best pedagogical technique. With him, I have learned to sing repertoire ranging from musical theater to opera, and I know that every skill I learn from him is transferable to whatever I want to sing. By studying with Ian, I have made more progress in my technique and my artistry within a shorter amount of time than I ever have before. Moreover, I have enjoyed music more and more with every lesson. I highly recommend this teacher!

A great Teacher! Her lesson plans are more in depth than any class I’ve had in the past. Along with basic Mandarin I’m learning the cultural exchange which improves my understanding of the language. She is also very punctual and reliable which is something I look for since I’m a very busy person. CiSong is a nice and confronting person which makes practicing speaking Mandarin less stressful. I definitely recommend CiSong as a teacher and I think she works well with all age groups.

Grace J.

Woonsocket, RI

About Grace

An experienced, patient, sweet and funny Chinese tutor to all levels and ages, I have been teaching and tutoring Chinese language over 10 years. I am originally from China, a native Mandarin Chinese speaker with a master degree.
I studied in a law school, got my master degree and lawyer license, also passed the Mandarin Proficiency Test, achieved the College Teacher Certificate and worked in a college to teach law and culture related subjects when I was in China.
After came to America, I had taught in a university, and a language workshop for children. At present, I teach Chinese in a summ
er camp of a very good private school. So you see, my students are from toddlers to adults. One parent praised me that I am a great story teller.
I can help students from primary to college improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing ability, and achieve a high score in their final Chinese test.
I can help students prepare for the AP Chinese Language and Culture Exam.
I can help worked people have a good understanding of this language.
I can tailor customized lessons to satisfy students’ specific requirements and levels, such as conversational Chinese, retail field Chinese, systematically beginner’s Chinese, etc…
I can teach people Business Chinese as well since I had the law background knowledge from China.
What book series I use the most is to teach high school, college students, and adults Integrated Chinese series.
What I like the most is to teach children because my personality is very active, and I like kids. I like to sing and dance (maybe it shouldn't be called dance, it is just like moving around). I can sing lots of Chinese nursery rhymes.
A committed professional to my work with a sincere, enthusiastic, easygoing, down to earth personality, I like teaching, that students improve day by day is my biggest happiness. You will have a happy time to learn Chinese very well if choosing me as your tutor.

Grace is fantastic. She speaks very clearly and works with you on each lesson at a very manageable pace. She is good at praising when you get things like pronunciation or tones correct, which is really helpful because they are difficult. She is also not afraid to stop you and have you repeat something if you botch it. I really enjoy my lessons.

I only had 1 lesson with Grace and I gave it 2 stars because I think it could have been better (she could have placed more effort into creating an actual lesson plan). I'm an ABC and grew up speaking Mandarin at home, but was looking to learn to read and recognize characters. We spoke Chinese the entire lesson and just reviewed the Integrated Chinese Vol 1 Part 2 textbook glossary from A-C. We just went over each word, which I did not find useful because I can just do with my Chinese friends or parents. Her only homework to me was that if this was too slow, I could read through the rest of the glossary to speed it up next time. I decided not to continue because I was afraid the next lessons would just be going through the glossary word by word. We lost 10 minutes because the TakeLessons video conferencing wasn't working, despite the fact that both of us had checked beforehand and during on the test environment (she could hear/see me, but I couldn't see/hear her). Even then, we went over five minutes to make up for it but it was frustrating to have a shortened lesson because of technical difficulties. Grace was nice, but I just didn't learn anything.

She even recommended a text book that I was completely unaware of. We have lived in China for the last 6 months and are now back in USA working with Grace to improve his basis. Carson 1st Lanuage is English. She is very patient.

I've been working with Timothy for 4 years working on accent reduction, Shakespeare acting, and cold reading. My experience with our sessions has helped me to focus on what was more important to work on and having Timothy honest and respectable approach will keep you satisfied to continue to work together.

Tim is an inspiring and (in the right way) challenging teacher, who drives his students to accomplish more than they thought possible by means of precise instruction and judicious criticism. There is no doubt: Tim gets results.

I took Voice and Speech classes with Timothy and I am really thankful for everything!! I had a really thick European accent, which I thought I would never be able to get rid of. He worked with me every day, very patiently, until I was able to speak confidently and as if I was born in America. There's no better feeling than hearing people say "You sound as if you were born here". Not only did he help me with my speech, as well as acting!! (genious of Shakespeare's interpretation!!) but through our work, he got to know me better and helped me become a better person and encouraged me in many things in life.
