I love helping students discover and develop their natural, free voice! Developing better intonation and breath control can happen in just a few weeks. I've had a tremendous variety of students and have seen terrific success and consistency with this method.

Would not recommend. Has some knowledge but a really bad character and will put you down as a person. If you aren’t a favorite, you’re ranked least important and more likely to be put down. A really bad experience and person.

Miriam is an excellent musician, mentor, and person! She knows her craft extremely well and knows how to coach someone by offering critical feedback and encouragement. Miriam is the kindest and most compassionate person that you will ever meet. Taking vocal lessons with Miriam will make you a better singer and a better person. Thanks, Miriam!

Miriam is by far the best singing instructor that I have ever had. She works with you so well to make sure that you find some sort of growth in your singing ability every time you meet with her. Totally Incredible!!

My name is Gretchen. I have been singing over 20 years. I have experience in a variety of choral settings, I hold a B.A. in music from Keene State College. I am also currently attending music therapy school. I am experienced in singing at weddings, funerals, patriotic, and historic events. My vocal training is popular, Broadway, religious, opera, and jazz. When I teach lessons I care much about the process, warmups, the anatomy, music theory, getting into character, vocal technique, and I have a kind and holistic approach. I believe music is a gift for everyone and that everyone can succeed. I love teaching beginners the power of music as well as seasoned musicians. I look forward to working with you.

A talented, patient teacher, Gretchen epitomizes the best qualities for musical instruction. Her technical knowledge of music theory is by far the most complete and deepest of anyone I have encountered. She has encouraged the gradual emerging of a latent talent talent I never knew I had as I was always discouraged from attempting any musical education.

I like to work one-on-one with my students creating a team and program that will lead each one of them to achieve their goals.
Since each student is different I like to create and select the material for each student's needs.

"When I came to Bill I had hopes and dreams of having the ability to read and play any kind of piano music. As a child I struggled with reading music during 3 years of lessons with a strict classical teacher, but held on to the dream. I have waited over 50 years to live the dream I am fulfilling now. Bill had me reading and playing any piano arrangement I wanted in 3 months. I play classical, gospel, movie themes and more and loving it all. His unique teaching method inspires you with an "I can do this" attitude. He analyzes who you are, your own style and abilities and raises the bar with every lesson. As I play, he shows me how to enhance my performance with every note. He couples insight with knowledge and his 30+ years of experience to create a true pianist. He tells me I am the composer when I play, own the music. He tells me "don't just play the music, become the music". After 2 years of lessons I am living my dream and preparing for concert level opportunities. Whether young or old (I am 73 years old), Bill can inspire and teach you to play. I often wonder where I would be in the music world if he would have been my childhood teacher. I highly recommend Bill to start your child's music foundation on the right track or for yourself - to live your dream too. Thank you Bill for all you do and who you are!"

Violin Vibrato for Beginners

What does it really take to master violin vibrato? The technique doesn't always come naturally to students, so persistence and practice should be no-brainers. And of course, working with a qualified violin teacher. If you're struggling, check out this helpful advice from Bolingbrook, IL teacher Kelvin L... For too long students have been told that vibrato is an emotional urge; that it will just come when it is needed. But please don’t think that vibrato is just going to happen magically. …

What is a Lute, and How is it Different From the Guitar?

As a guitar player, I rarely had to deal with the issue of explaining what my instrument was to people I met. Even non-musicians are generally familiar with the guitar and the many forms and shapes it takes. When I made the transition to playing the lute, however, this changed significantly, due in no small part to the odd-looking case that I have to carry the instrument around in. People will often ask me, “What is a lute?” In truth, the history of the lute is a long one and I often s …
