Valerie Rocks!

Valerie has been teaching my daughter for a couple years. My child has gone from shy, unskilled and uncertain in her singing TO confident, skilled and loves to perform. Valerie's one-on-one sessions are productive and tailored to my child's needs. She also draws on other resources to help develop my child's talent thru studio and recommendations. Her teaching skills are excellent as have seen my daughter transform steadily over these past few years. I highly, highly, highly recommend Valerie as a teacher. When I was searching for a singing teacher, I didn't know where to look and what to look for and went through Take Lessons and got a 'gem'.

Fantastic!

Valerie is a great teacher on many levels. I've heard my improvements dramatically within several lessons because of her instruction and if you are nervous she helps you get over it quickly. She is very friendly and helps you achieve your goal, I couldn't recommend her highly enough!

Love her!

I was quitting smoking when I met Valerie and I wanted to get my voice back. I was so self-conscious of my sound and range but after 5 minutes with her I just let go! She turned my voice around quick, and made me more aware of my stance and breath. I'm really happy I got her as a teacher!

Valerie has been good at trying several approaches to determine what works best for me to achieve the desired result. With an older student that is definately a good thing.

Valerie has analyzed my daughter's skills and pinpointed her needs. She has a precise lesson and keeps the lesson on target the whole time. She is always well dressed and polite.
