Jared is an excellent teacher. I am 62 and took lessons from Jared for about 6 months. He individualizes his lessons, he is very knowledgeable in every aspect of music. He communicates and gives as much or as little information as you desire. We also covered a lot of theory as part of the lessons which I enjoyed.

He has a nice manor and is respectful.
I recommend him highly.

If you are looking for a truly caring, passionate and dedicated teacher and want to have a rare and life-changing experience in your lessons, then look no further! I am a professional musician, I sing, play piano, and teach both voice and piano lessons. This unique combination of abilities and areas of expertise offers me the chance to help my students to grow, transform, and awaken their gifts on every level.

Eva is not only a wonderful teacher, but a very genuine person. Her positive attitude is inspiring and my daughter always left in a better mood and feeling great. Eva knows how to keep lessons fun and light, while still pushing my daughter to improve. I can't recommend her enough!

Just an all-around pleasure!

Eva is an incredible vocal coach as well as a confidence coach. The things she taught me and had me do not only strengthened my ability as a singer, but made me more comfortable with developing my own voice and performing in front of others.

She is also very personable and flexible in helping me with whatever I want to do. She isn't the type to try and cram material down your throat that doesn't interest you or in some way help you to get where you want to go.

I always look forward to my next lesson and wish that I could afford longer ones because I feel like I'm constantly growing whenever I'm there.

Samuel Y. Louisville, KY

About Samuel

My name is Samuel Y. I am 21 years old and have been playing trombone since I was 11. I was a very successful high school trombonist having made All-District 5 years in a row and All-State Two years in a row. I also was part of a matching band that won many championships and the concert band I was in won a national championship. I also was a music major at the University of Louisville. I am wanting to start helping beginners to intermediate players because I know just having someone to guide you asking helps someone progress so much faster, not only that I want to give the gift music to others and have it touch their life as it has mine. A little informed consent, I do not have a degree in music and my rates reflect that; however, I consider myself to be at college level and can ...

Strategies for Sight Singing

It may seem like instrumentalists have it much easier when it comes to sight reading music; by simply pressing a key or a string, the notes are immediately available to them without any additional thought, and all that’s left to them is to work out duration, dynamics, and tempo. Singers, on the other hand, don't have an instrument to rely on. Taking a song previously unknown to you and delivering a reasonably accurate performance the very first run-through isn’t a talent that everybody has.   … Read More
