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!

Adam is a great teacher! He is patient and provides very clear and easy to understand instructions and direction. Not only is he a skilled musician he makes learning fun and gears the lessons to the pace of my son. I especially love that he easily can identify issues with your voice and starts right in on exercises to take home and practice in order to correct the issue. I recommend Adam to anyone who wants to learn how to sing!!

I've had pitch problems and Adam was extremely helpful. I get bored easily at times, but the lessons were so much fun that singing is all I wanted to do. Highly recommend Adam. If you love theatre, Adam is your choice.

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!
