My 10 year old daughter takes voice lessons with Tina and she LOVES her. Tina makes lessons fun, keeps my daughter focused and interested and treats her as the capable mini human she is. They spend a portion of the lesson learning proper stance, warm ups and enunciation techniques. The remainder of the 30 minutes is spent working on a song for the week. My daughter's voice has thrived under Tina's tutelage. We can't recommend her enough and would give more stars if possible.
Such a knowledge of your voice and how to develop technique to utilize as a true instrument...
TINA IS THE BEST! She has gone above and beyond anything I could expect from a music theory teacher. I came to her as an aspiring music education major who loved to sing, but was unsure of anything to do with music theory, piano, teaching, etc. Not only did Tina put everything she has into my lessons, but she really cared about me as a student and as a friend and helped prepare me for all aspects of music, including sharing her experiences as a music educator, lending me music theory and staff paper books, and helping me prepare for auditions. She is understanding, engaging, and hilarious. She spent a lot of time outside of our lessons making sure she was prepared, agreed to meet with me multiple times a week and outside of my lesson time, and even now that I am no longer taking formal lessons with her, she has checked up on me multiple times to see how things were and if she could help with anything. I am ever grateful to have met and taken lessons with her and would recommend her to anyone and everyone in the St. Louis area!
