My son Steven has been taking taking lessons with Carol for about 2 years now and we think she is the greatest! Carol was very knowledgeable during the lessons and her patience with my son helped him achieve greatness. My son is now moving and we wish he could take Carol with him but shes got great work to do with other students! I HIGHLY recommend lessons with Carol!

Working with kids requires the ability to use analogies and really understand the child that you are working with. Our experience with Adam has convinced me that he posses those qualities. He is also punctual and consistent. As the guy footing the bill, I appreciate.
We plan on continuing our relationship with Adam.

This was our first lesson and first impression is that he was very patient with our boys. Our boys have some special needs and he was understanding and accommodating. It's clear he is very knowledgable about the instrument. Time will tell if his teaching style and personality will work for us in the long run.

I played clarinet for ten years. I wanted to find a teacher who really knows how to focus on a student's goals and weaknesses. Kevin has provided me with weekly lessons that I can take home and make trues progress in picking, timing, reading, fingering, and listening, Kevin is a true professional.

Thank you Anne. I get the most from you that one should play piano with the body in a natural state. "Nature commended should be obeyed."

I think it is incredible that you keep learning new things!

Wish you all the best in the future.

Returning to fundamentals as an adult learner is very difficult and challenging but, at least in my case, very necessary. Annie has been a wonderful piano and voice teacher guiding me through this process - patient and kind, tolerant of my poor practice habits, and able to help me work on all aspects of my music. I would highly recommend her to any prospective student, and hope to continue working with her well into the future.

Marjorie is an amazing teacher!! She's very supportive and inspiring to the point that now I've started to get into songwriting. She even teaches me relaxation exercises to help nudge the creative spirit! I always leave her studio feeling enthusiastic, full of energy and looking forward to the next lesson!

When I first came to Marjorie it was to see if I could start to work on adding some natural vibrato after years of straight-tone choral singing. I was feeling very discouraged and worried that maybe I just didn't have any natural vibrato at all.

When the lesson started, one of the first things Marjorie said to me was, "You're not singing straight-tone. I can hear your vibrato in there, but we need to set it free." In just a few more lessons we were already stripping away years of bad habits from choral blending, and I was thrilled to start to feel my vocal chords phonating easily and naturally.

Fast-forward several months and my confidence -- and love for singing -- continue to grow. I'm so amazed with Marjorie's patience and faith in me and just thrilled that she was able to break through 10 years of bad habits and set free my natural sound!

Marjorie is a brilliant teacher who will put you at ease within the first five minutes of being in her studio. She will give you the technical tools to create the best sound and then help you develop your own artistry. I highly recommend her to any voice student of any level!

Jameson is an exceptional singer and teacher. He is kind and patient in lessons and wants to make sure you understand what he is teaching. Not only does he go over the notes and rhythms of a song, he also goes over the meaning and emotions of the piece to help you understand and perform the piece.

Jameson has been patient with me in the few lessons I've had with him so far.
He's very knowledgeable and understanding, so I felt no need to be ashamed when I make mistakes or sometimes sound funny. It helps that he's friendly and approachable.

The lessons are purposeful and insightful. I like how he allows me to ask questions and he helps me understand mechanics that I've never learned before.

I've sung in a few church choirs for many years on and off without any vocal training. I've only ever sung for just the love of singing, so I've collected some bad habits that were never addressed until now. It didn't take long for him to develop a gameplan for me and figure out how he's gonna get me right on track.

Today he helped me "find my voice". It was a Eureka moment of sorts I won't soon forget. There's still work to be done, but surely I will
continue with my lessons with him because I'd like to see where he can help me take my voice.

Definitely top-notch instruction from a pro here, so for me, it's money well-spent.

Jameson's knowledge and instruction go well beyond the physical mechanics of singing. His lessons bring you to the mental approach to singing and performing. He somehow makes the abstract tangible, at least in so far as it can be applied in a real way. Lastly, I don't think I ever had a lesson where we did not share some laughter.
