Glynis D.

Long Beach, CA

I have been taking singing lessons since I was 7 years old and understand the importance of developing a solid technique. I majored in jazz voice in college but am versed in all styles. Singing to me is the expression of the soul and I love to help others develop their voice.

Glynis is a great teacher! I was a bit nervous, feeling a bit on the older side, lol, to begin piano lessons but she is very patient, encouraging and works at my pace. I'm learning a lot and definitely recommend her.

We Love Mr. Joe!!!

Joe is very patient with my daughter. He truly wants her to learn and understand what she is learning and most of all to enjoy music. He goes at her pace while still encouraging her to set goals for herself. He will not move forward until she has mastered what she has learned.

Mr. Joe's passion for music reflects in his teaching!!

Music teacher that motivates his students.

My daughter has taken group and individual music lessons with Jose for three years. He is a teacher that meets students at their instructional level and motivates them to give their best effort in their learning. He also encourages my daughter with singing; he gives her vocal lessons in addition to guitar and piano. Jose also offers my daughter a safe learning environment. As a parent of a teenager, I greatly appreciate his patience with my daughter.

Samara is great with our daughter. She recommends songs that our daughter likes and she asks my daughter to choose songs that she likes. She sings along with her when necessary to help her find the right notes and plays piano beautifully. Our daughter looks forward to the lessons with Samara.

As Samara's colleague at UCSD, I had the privilege of collaborating with her on various musical projects and observing her composition process from start to finish. She's a creative, talented and ambitious musician who is familiar with various musical instruments and techniques. More than that, she is a dedicated educator: she has extensive knowledge of musical pedagogy and is always looking for opportunities for further professional development. I highly recommend her for students of all levels!

Our daughter took voice and piano lessons with Samara for about 6 months in San Diego. She had never had lessons before but within that short time fame our daughter learned and progressed at an unbelievable pace.

Samara is patient and extremely talented with her gifts as well as with children. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed all her lessons with Samara and we were definitely sad to see her go.

About Carl

During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time. Think you're the only one who feels that terrifying nervousness? Most everyone does, including the biggest stars. I've written a book about it entitled, "How To Conquer Nervousness For Singers", and I'll teach you to not only handle it, but to direct its energy into your singing, making your performance soar. I've also written, "How To Get Standing Ovations For Singers" to teach you to drive your audience to their feet for a standing ovation. I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a ...

You will like Carl as your instructor. He is an expert at what he does, especially voice analysis with techniques to better any singing voice. He knows from A to Z what needs to be done to correct and improve, and this he imparts with specific instructions, coupled with lots of encouragement. He has generously worked with both my husband (a very good voice) and me (a bit of the ordinary) and we have always been satisfied with his professionalism and love of the art. Thanks, Carl.

I'm a guitarist for fun in a 3-piece band with a couple of my friends. We've had some difficulty securing a singer to jam with us so I figured that I would give it a shot.

Upon discovering TakeLessons.com, I found Carl's page and immediately decided to book lessons with him. What a fantastic decision that was! He's an excellent instructor and will assist you in becoming the best singer you can be. In particular, he emphasizes finding your own, unique voice, as opposed to imitating others; this alone was invaluable advice for a singing novice such as myself.

Highly recommended!

Got my first computer diagnosis of my singing voice and what a blast. Carl used it as a basis to show me what my tongue, soft palate, lips, and jaw do when I'm singing really well. He's my fourth singing teacher, and my best.

Athena M.

Anaheim, CA

I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of solid vocal technique and musical performance skills. I specialize in pop, opera, classical and gospel, typically request that students record their lessons for practice at home and have students select most of the songs they'd like to study.

About Athena

About Me If you can recognize your favorite song when you hear it, you already have what it takes to be a great musician! MY PROMISE TO YOU: 1. Your lesson will always be geared toward what YOU want to learn, and if it seems like we are working on something that doesn't match that, I will always take the time to make clear why what we are doing will have you be able to play what you want. 2. You already have every skill you need to be a great performer, and my job is just to steer the ship in the right direction to have that happen. All I am ever doing in a lesson is making sure that we are moving you in the ultimate direction that you want to be going musically. 3. I will do everything I know how to do to make sure that what I have learned that will benefit you ...

My daughter has taken voice lessons with a previous teacher before (not from Take Lessons). Everything with Athena is completely different, however my daughter's singing has developed greatly. My daughters is already projecting more and she has become able to sing loudly and clearly. I am very pleased with my daughters lessons and I would highly recommend Athena to others!
