Concetta is very polite and professional. She's sees your potential and have you reach for it. She makes you feel comfortable and sure of yourself. She's a wonderful voice coach. Can't wait for my next lesson.

Concetta has a lot of excellent suggestions for improving singing performance. The typed notes she sends after each lesson were a tremendous asset as well. In only five lessons, she improved my daughters stage presence and taught her how to engage an audience. We were always short term clients, but Concetta more than met our goals and expectations. I would very much recommend her for any level of voice and performance. Excellent teacher

Concetta was fantastic with my six year old son with special needs. She was patient and engaging. We left and he told me that her studio was his "favorite place".

Concetta was wonderful with my daughter. My daughter had never even picked up a guitar before tonight's first lesson. Concetta showed a great deal of patience and her love of music was very apparent in her teaching.
My daughter was very comfortable with Concetta and she is really looking forward to her next lesson.
Thank you very much Concetta!!
