Chialing is a truly amazing teacher! I am studying cello with her after taking nearly 10 years off from touching my cello. Chialing is extremely patient and always has advice on how to practice and better understand the cello. I feel very comfortable learning from Chialing and feel even more excited about learning music after each lesson.
Lili Z.
Chialing came to our home for piano lessons for our two girls. They took to her immediately. She is skilled at dealing with young children and extremely warm. Her lessons are tailored to each child's ability. They get excited to practice what they have learned after she leaves.

Wow! Amy is incredible! I felt super comfortable around her and feel I can learn so much from her. We started off finding a monologue for me to read. I read it and now plan on reading the entire script so we can continue to working on it together... I can’t wait for my next lesson!

Coach Amy REALLY gets it. She will put you at ease, and if you put in the work you will advance quickly. Totally worth her rates, I can't say enough about the quality training she has provided me.

Lorna takes the time to get to know you and your voice. I feel very confident having such a devoted and talented teacher as my singing coach.
She is literally helping me to find my voice.
Josephine
Professor Lorna has been the music teacher I’ve needed all my life!

I have been taking singing lessons with Professor Lorna for about 3 months now.

During this time period, she has not only helped me develop my voice but my singing confidence as well. Professor Lorna pushes me out of my comfort zone every class! She sees the potential in me and has helped me bring out that voice that I have been hiding. I need more practice but she define you knows what she’s doing! Even my family has noticed my singing growth with the technique Professor Lorna has taught me.

I am very happy that I found Professor Lorna. She is a woman filled with knowledge in all things of music and very talented! With much patience, practice, and continuing to take her lessons I know that she will continue to assist me in evolving my talent and helping me become that great singer I aspire to be.
I hope that I can grow under her wings and eventually master all that she’s taught me. Professor Lorna is what I’d call “The Master.”
Thaylin
I have truly enjoyed my experience with Mrs.Lawson. I find it easier to sing and have more confidence when singing. First we went over vocal techniques such as breathing and exercises. This served well for my college singing class. Then we applied all the techniques to a song. Every lesson is fun and I love having a true critique to better improve myself

Stephanie is a wonderful voice teacher! This is my first time taking lessons and she has made it comfortable (even though I was shy at first) and so much fun! You can tell she really cares about her students and loves what she does. Thank you, Stephanie!
Vanessa
I can genuinely say Stephanie is the best voice instructor I’ve ever had! Aside from being the sweetest and most encouraging, she knows her technique well and always makes sure to find out what exercises work best for your voice. I noticed improvements within the first few lessons (that I’ve never felt with other instructors). I highly recommend her. The lessons are so much fun! :)

As a beginner with zero experience playing any instruments, I am so grateful for Nabin's expertise, patience, and natural ability to instruct. Nabin makes it easy and fun to learn playing the tabla. He sets reasonable expectations, creates a fun and low-stress environment, and is lovely to work with! I look forward to continue working with him and would highly recommend him!

Nabin is not only an incredibly skilled musician, but he is incredibly skilled at teaching music in a cohesive way. His perspective on music as a whole, as well as tabla, has expanded my learning greatly.

"I had my first lesson with Deanna and left feeling like I could do anything -- literally. Not only does Deanna have supernatural people skills, she is also as real as they come and ultra professional. She's generous in her transparency, sharing her process at her own expense, extremely credible, with both knowledge and experience undergirding her, and most importantly, she seems to be genuinely excited about your success. All I can say is... if you're serious about unleashing your true voice potential, I think you will find Deanna to be a refreshing step in the right direction.
