Lester is one of a kind music teacher who will go to great lengths to find your voice no matter what age you are. He has a technique that enables you to keep on going until you comfortably find your voice. From posture, stands, looks, and the relationship of your diaphragm to your vocal chords, he is THE ULTIMATE MASTER.

My first lesson was extremely productive. I am an adult student and hadn't played in many years and Max focused on techniques to help me with my weaknesses, and to quickly surpass the level of playing I was previously at. He is patient, encouraging and an excellent teacher.

"I purposely waited to review Jordan until almost a full semester of lessons. My husband and I wanted to see how his personality would 'play out' over our time knowing him, how our daughter would respond to learning at such a young age (5), and how much progress either of them would make with one another. So to answer concern #1: I had my concerns that we would see progress with Jordan't laid-back style but he has been an answer to our prayers. He has had much going on personally with work and a move and yet he stayed steadfast and awesome through it all! Regarding concern #2: in spite of the minimalist attention span of a 5 year old, Jordan has managed to engage our daughter in a realistic fashion and she has grown to eagerly look forward to practicing what she has learned - IN A SEMESTER! - and as a piano player myself, I could not be more pleased with her progress thus far. Concern #3: Jordan seems to have captured the tricky concept of accountability for a 5 year old and our daughter actually respects Mr. Jordan. We have been so pleased and look forward to continuing our lessons."

"Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner."

3 Tips for Voice Projection

No mic? No problem! Sing loud and proud with these voice projection tips from Broken Arrow, OK voice teacher Adia P...   Growing up on the stages of community theater, I probably heard "Project your voice!" more than "Curtain!" or "Break a Leg!"  It's a little intimidating at first, but between nonstop practices and a healthy fear that all my hard work would be wasted if no one could hear my lines, I was projecting like a pro in no time. It may sound complicated, but projecting your …
