Elizabeth is the best teacher I could ever have! She has helped me gaining confidence when I started singing in a middle school play and now that I have a main role in a high school play, her coaching and support have been priceless! She is my compass, guiding me in the right direction! I highly recommend her!

Elizabeth is wonderful with couching to improve voice quality and singing technique. Her sensitivity and professionalism is definitely plus. Getting valuable advise to correct and to improve singing habit is very important to me.

Thank you so much for recording the lessons as I could review and practice along with you.

I am happy with the three lessons which I took; and, hope to continue my voice lessons with her. Keep up the excellent work ~

Best wishes,

Gloria

A gem

Elizabeth, is a wonderful teacher. She is very professional, knowledgeable and encouraging. My 12 year old loves her, and in the few months that she has been seeing her, has made big steps in her performing arts goals. I am really glad that Elizabeth is there for my daughter, and I know we will be taking lessons from her for a very long time .

Barbara N.

Brookhaven, PA

About Barbara

I have been singing for as long as I can remember. It is my very favorite activity. I have transformed my love of singing into a career. I have been teaching music lessons for over 25 years. When you study with me you will have the advantage of that experience. I have extensive experience teaching students of all ages. Throughout my teaching career I have taught students with varied backgrounds and diverse needs. If you are a person who was told not to sing by your music teacher, don't give up! I have taught many children and adults to match pitches and improve their singing voices. I earned a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from Moravian College and a Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Temple University. While at Temple, I studied standard vocal repertoire and ...

My son has been taking lessons with Ed since he was 5. Ed was very patient dealing with a high energy child who had a limited attention span. Eight years later, we are still seeing Ed weekly for lessons and my son has turned into a well-rounded musician. Ed tailors the lessons to my son's musical interests and takes an interest in what is going on in his life.

We have gone to see Ed perform in several venues and he always takes the time to talk to us during his break. I highly recommend Drum Lessons with Ed for those at any skill level.

David is a very skilled drummer and a very enthusiastic teacher. In lessons, he seems to like to split time between practicing rudiments and learning to play different rhythms on the set. He is also exceptionally patient and supportive with my 9-year-old, highly distractible daughter. David is very positive, pointing out things that are going well and interesting rhythms that they discover. I am really glad we found David--he is an excellent teacher and I love watching my daughter learn so much about music!

Kids' Piano Lessons: How Often Should My Child Practice?

Here's some great advice from Augustine, FL piano teacher Heather L...   When it comes to kids' piano lessons, how often should a student be practicing?

How Often Should You Tune a Piano?
Just as you go to the doctor for check-ups from time to time, your piano needs maintenance and care throughout its life. You may notice, especially if you have a keen ear or a tendency to sing along with your practice, that your piano drops in pitch, particularly during the summer and winter months. This is because your piano is mostly made of wood, and your wooden soundboard will contract when the weather is drier -- or the heating is on! -- and cause the pitch of the strings to drop. While kn

But here, Austin, TX teacher Samuel B. shares why practicing your scales will ultimately make you a better guitar player down the line...   I'm a 25-year veteran of playing the guitar. In seventh grade, I took an introductory class to both the guitar and keyboard, in which I received only a "B" as I pretty much neglected the keyboard altogether. Besides, I'd taken piano
