Really fun working with Adam. Loved my first lesson and I am looking forward to the next one!!!
Fun start to my accent reduction class with Adam.
I had a great first lesson with him. He's really patient and encouraging. He explains the technique in a way that's easy to understand, which helps a lot with practicing at home.
Great lesson. Feel like I might see improvement in my voice with him as opposed to other teachers I’ve had.
Adam is helping me to develop a perfect speaking voice, intonation and diction. With his great guidance and my dedicated practice the progress is fast. Great teacher! Thank you Adam!
Great lessons! Always fun. Thanks!
Great experience with Adam! He is very thorough and great at explaining the nuances of language and pronunciation that are difficult to detect from just listening. My goal was to clean up my pronunciation (been living in the States for a while, but couldn't get rid of my accent). and Adam gave me great tools and things to watch out for as I am working on my American English.Show More
Adam made me feel very confortable right away.
He explains very well what you do and what you should do instead.
It's hands-on from minute 1, and I learn so much from the first class.
Adam is highly intuitive, sharp and doesn't miss a beat!
He creates a fun environment to tackle a challenging subject.
I finally find the right person after trying a few teachers.
I highly recommend him.
Great instructor! Highly recommend!
Great voice training lesson!
He understood the requirement and jumped in with practical solutions , tools and approach . Looking forward to the rest of the classes.
My daughter really enjoys Adam's energy, integrity and no fluff attitude. His advice and coaching are spot on and in a few sessions, she has really opened up to what needs to be worked on and where her strengths are.
I'm seeing Adam for accent reduction and for deepening the pitch of my voice (I sound too girly in business meetings). My colleagues really noticed a difference! It took about 8 weeks to get to the point where it was noticeable enough. I will continue with the lessons to make the it stick. Plus, it is fun! Adam makes me laugh every time!Show More
Adam is a great teacher. This was my first time taking voice lessons (adult beginner) and I wasn't sure what to expect. But Adam's ear is sharp as hell. HE doesn't miss anything and doesn't let me off the hook when I lose focus or miss a note. Anytime I feel like I messed up but don't think he caught it, he always catches it!
Which tells me he's legit. Highly recommended.
Adam is working with my son on musical theatre and it’s been awesome! Very easy and convenient to schedule with him. My son loves it and practices more than ever.
Adam is an amazing coach. Within the first few minutes I knew I found the right person to work with. Extremely professional and knowledgeable. Looking forward to working with him for a long time.
Good experience, never hurts to try something your interested in.
Adam is a fantastic instructor, able to provide meaningful feedback to really improve your voice! I would recommend him to anyone!
Working with Adam has been great so far. He is a great teacher who understands the craft very well. He has taught me certain techniques of the craft that have helped me to begin to get a feel for what acting is all about. I would recommend Adam to anyone interested in acting.Show More
Working with Adam has been great. I have had one lesson so far and I already feel like I learned a lot.
It’s good to find Adam for improving my speaking. He is friendly, hidhly professional. He encourages me a lot to go beyond what actually I am. I saw a good improvement in my speaking. Just follow his guidance and advise.
He is one of the best teachers for speaking classes.
Adam is a great teacher. He praises you for things you do properly and patiently tries to correct any mistakes. His song suggestions that would be used for practice try to highlight your voice as you apply the techniques you learned. They also sometimes take you out of your comfort zone to challenge you and expand your growth. Would highly recommend him as a teacher!Show More
Adam was great!
First class singing lessons instruction. Started where I would have started with myself: blowing bubbles! Great studio.
very patient with my daughter, who is easily distracted .
I have been working with Adam for years ... he has helped me prep for gigs and recording sessions. He is amazing!
Great voice teacher with an excellent knowledge of songs and music.
My son has learned so much.
Amazing patient teacher!
Best instructor ever!
My daughter went to Adam for weekly lessons for several years started at age 12. She made a lot of progress under his direction. He continually challenged her and is very open about areas to improve. When we needed someone to help her with college audition prep, we went straight to Adam. He is great with young kids and teenagers. We highly recommend him! In fact, I have recommended him to several people who all also think he is great.Show More
Adam has been my teacher and now friend for over 11 years. He has a wealth of vocal knowledge. He has every situation covered. I've sent quite a few actors to him and everyone has enjoyed their experience with him. I've been able to go from no vocal experience to eventually gaining equity status, getting my acceptance to Juilliard and having contracts that have ranged from regional to bway. My life would have been very different if he had not made a great impression upon me.
Adam is a great instructor and is so knowledgeable. He is also flexible in his teaching style and approach, which works great with our son.
Very easy to work with, and my daughter is so excited to have lessons. we just started, but looking forward to more lessons
Excellent instructor. Has patience very knowledgeable as you know. I am such a beginner but enjoyed every minute. Star number five
Great experience so far and I really enjoy Adam's teaching style!
Adam is great. Very knowledgeable and comfortable to be with. Looking forward to my next lesson.
very kind and considerate instructor. Very helpful and puts you at ease before you start the training.
Adam is great. Easy going yet effective teaching style that has motivated me to play more often and better. Thanks Adam!
Adam is really super (I am only on my third lesson). He will make you feel comfortable and interact with you in a personable and dynamic way.
He is the perfect teacher if you want to improve your stage voice and pitch. Adam is the man if you have fame on your mind. Julia
If you are a little slow on the uptake, (like I am when I don't know the subject matter) you need to be brave and follow his directions in practicing techniques. Adam personalizes his lessons, but they could be more planned. They feel a little too unprepared.
This was my first time taking piano lesson and I felt Adam was patient in his delivery of instruction pursuant to explaining the basic or foundations of piano.
First singing lesson experience and everything is great so far. Have really felt more and more
I enjoyed it look forward to the next lesson
A very good start. Great teaching technique! Helped my son relax and learn about performing from the get go.
A very good start. Great teaching technique! Helped my son relax and learn about performing from the get go.
Great first lesson. Let me know what I am good at and what I need to work at very quickly.
Great lessons. He has really helped me improve and refine my singing technique. If you're looking for someone to help you take your abilities to the next level, look no further.
I have had some vocal instructors in the past. But my best vocal training experience was with Adam. His classes were so productive and after every session was over I couldn't wait for the week after to start singing with him again. He is very patient and brings out the best voice out of you. I would've continued working with him if I hadn't moved out of NY/NJ area. I definitely recommend him!Show More
Awesome! Wonderful insight and great warm ups! Looking forward to more!
Adam is very honest and helpful. He's been instrumental in helping me to reach deeper and to be more authentic with my voice in voice overs.
He's a great teacher very patient, comfortable, and honest.
Great experience, felt really comfortable with his way of teaching and that he could pin point my weakness. looking forward to improve now.
Awesome! My daughter loved Adam. He was a straight shooter & very knowledgable. Can't wait to go back.
First lesson was great! My daughter loved it. Looking forward to the next one.
Excellent instructor- does not tell you what you want to hear, but what you need to hear. Invaluable in helping me prepare for first solo in a show ever. Seriously considering long term lessons for real training.
Adam is a great teacher. What I like most about him is he does not beat around the bush and he will tell you the truth. He's easy to work with and he has helped me to understand the art of acting better. He's easy to get along with and he is very knowledgable about various topics. I am even considering signing my younger sibling up to take lessons with him as well. Choosing Adam as my teacher was my first step towards succes!Show More
I was nervous at first, and love practicing the red leather tongue twister and learning new techniques. I highly recommend Adam!
Patient and knowledgeable. Great teacher!
Adam was wonderful with my 8 yr old son. He had such patience with him and really knew how to get down to his level. My son really enjoyed his first lesson and we cant wait to see the progress every week!
First class is great
Adam has been great with my 7 year old son. He is patient and just firm enough to get his message across and still able to laugh at a 7 year olds antics! I definitely recommend him if you want to start you son or daughter in music or with an instrument.
Adam was extremely patient yet discipline in providing instruction to my 8 1/2 year old daughter with Down Syndrome. He leveraged her abilities and basic language, math and reading skills into a very rewarding piano lesson that left her excited about learning music.Show More
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!!Show More
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.
Adam is an excellent teacher, since I have began lessons with him I have noticed tremendous progress in my voice and singing confidence.
Very patient and finds new ways of presenting so that it's alays a cool and great lesson. !!
Adam immediately gets to work for you and provides clear, easy-to-understand direction how to improve your voice. He moves at a good pace through the lessons, while expertly analyzing your voice, identifying areas that need special attention. Follow his advice and you will see results!Show More
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.
Adam was very nice and professional and a pleasure to meet and work with. I'm looking forward to working with him again.
Very nice, professional
I am very happy with my selection, this teacher is everything i hoped for and mor.
couldn't have asked for more!
Adam is a great teacher. My daughter really enjoys going which is great when your only 11years old. Adam is wonderful at explaining to my daughter why she has to do the exercises and how everything will affect her singing voice. So much more then I expected.
