Abigail loves her lessons; I suggested to her that she let you know she has a personal cordless microphone & amplifier. I thought the usage of microphone would be cool to use. Of course, this was only a suggestion, what do you think?

Lindsey is an encouraging, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and talented singing teacher and performer! Before Lindsey relocated to Texas, I took lessons with her for about 10 months. I always loved singing, but I never took any private lessons until I discovered Lindsey on takelessons. After a few months learning from Lindsey, I was able to widen my range, correct my breathing techniques, and learn the fundamentals of harmony and sight singing. Lindsey’s lessons were always fun and informative. She also gave me the confidence to audition for a Vocal Ensemble. After several weeks of audition preparation with Lindsey, I surprisingly made it into the group! If you are looking for a fun and educated singing teacher, Lindsey is for you!
