David, 8yo, just started his guitar lessons with Adam and he is extremely happy with what he already knows after only one lesson! We cannot wait for the next one!

Adam is awesome! Thank you so much!
Herbert
Adam is a teacher par excellence. I am self taught from a well known book. I was doing well I thought until I got stuck. Adam gently showed me where I erred and made great suggestions for me to move on correctly. I never felt rushed or “ put down.” Adam was patient, open for questions, encouraging, comforting. I know I need much help to correct and advance in guitar from matters such as tuning, restringing, reading, and other things too many to write about. I look forward to my next lesson with enthusiasm.

Very knowledgable and enthusiastic teacher. He has a way about him that makes the lesson exciting.
Yoella & Malkiya O.
Mr Yakov is very pleasant, patient and professional. He makes learning fun. One of my daughters is very shy and particular. I was concerned for her first violin. But she ended up loving the lesson and the instructor. We did some lessons online and at his studio. During the online lesson, the connection with our internet was horrible. He could hear her playing but she couldn't hear him. Yet, patiently, he got creative and taught the lesson with my daughter through chat. The environment of the studio is comfortable. You can tell he's passionate about what he does. That left me with a great impression of him. We look forward to more lessons with him for as long as we can.
Thanks Mr Yakov!!!

I'm a classically trained vocalist with 10 years of experience in Musical Theatre, who transitioned into working with pop singers 20 years ago. My experiences consist of vocal producing, in-studio coaching, accent training, vocal arranging, and background singing for artists like Mandy Moore, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Diego Torres, CNCO, and the likes, as well as for TV shows like La Voz, La Voz Kids, La Banda, Mira Quien Baila and France's Les Anges TV series. Most recently, I've been working to help develop and coach young artists and influencers who need overall development and guidance, not just in terms of technique, but recording vocals, vocal producing, social media content creation and strategy, on-stage training, and more.

Liza is an amazing person inside and out. She has so much experience and versatility. She studies her students and makes sure that she's giving them all the techniques they need to improve. I've had many vocal coaches in my life and she is by far the most inspiring! She is funny, nice, and she always makes me feel comfortable, even when doing things that I might think are out of my range. She pulls the potential out of me.

"Miss Fawn is very professional, knowledgable and patient. My twelve-year-old son actually got more out of one lesson with her than from several lessons received by his other Juilliard trained private instructor. After just a few months, I can't believe the high level of music and songs he is playing. Fawn not only makes him master his fingering, music theory, reading notes and his touch, but she gives him a test after each level, without telling him in advance. She says she "wants to know what he's absorbed" and "what's become part of him." Then whatever he can't remember, she focuses on, tests him again after they have covered what he is lacking in and so on and so on, until it all becomes part of him. She also assigns him reading material about different composers and has him listen to one piece each of them have written. Miss Fawn doesn't miss a thing. On top of being an incredible teacher, Her experience, thoroughness, talent, patience, and great personality definitely count and are what I consider music magic for my son. Thank you Miss Fawn."

"Wow! For someone who was completely new to drums and understanding rhythm , Ross was absolutely perfect for what I needed. His attention to detail shows just how knowledgable he is of his craft, and makes hard matters easy to understand! (even a 6 year old could understand him)

His professionalism strives even through online classes, because he's so keen on making sure you understand the context.

Would HIGHLY recommend!"

Learning to Sing: The Truth Behind 4 Common Misconceptions

Descartes once said, "I'm tone deaf, therefore I'm hopeless." Wait, no, that's not right.  But the debate is certainly real: Is there such a thing as being "tone deaf"?  And if so, should the hopeless few bother with singing lessons if their dream is to one day perform on stage? Much like mastering any other skill, learning to sing comes with many common misconceptions from outsiders.  So read on - we're about to debunk them! 1. Singing lessons are for people who can't sing.
