As a complete beginner, I started taking vocal lessons 6 months ago with Lance. In that time I have greatly increased my vocal control, pitch, placement, range, ear, and confidence. He has been extremely patient and provides a comfortable environment for trying new things out, which has been invaluable for progress. He also has imparted on me some of his great musical background which has helped me more deeply understand and appreciate the music I am performing. I look forward to continuing lessons with Lance and seeing progress towards my musical goals.
Lance gave me good basic tips for the alto saxophone, as this is my first attempt at playing an instrument. He was kind, professional & encouraging. I’m looking forward to working on my homework.
He’s awesome! Super patient and knowledgeable.
