I could not be happier with my decision to take voice lessons with Ben! These past couple of months have been more beneficial to me than any of my previous experience with other teachers. I have already seen improvement in my voice and there is still so much I can learn. Ben works to improve the voice as a whole, rather than limiting it to one specific area. I would highly recommend him to those who are ready to put in the work necessary to get great results.

I've never had vocal lessons before and my singing voice has never improved faster since I started lessons with Benjamin. He's a great teacher in many ways. His personal approach will take wherever you are as a singer to the next level. He will teach you not only proper techniques, control, and mindset of a singer; but he also teaches how to bring out your unique style and encourages your own personal expression.

You can waste your whole life listening to voice techniques from YouTube, but if you don't have Benjamin then you'll never achieve what you imagine your voice can be.

I have been taking lessons with Benjamin for 3 months. He is an excellent teacher. I have received little training in singing prior to Benjamin. He helps me find my voice and figure out how to sing in a correct way. I can feel I have made steady improvement within the past few months. He is very encouraging and always supportive of my growth. It is fun to work with him. I highly recommend him!

Kelly is a thoughtful, kind and patient teacher. Her encouragement has made me more confident in re-learning Spanish and becoming conversational/fluent in this ever-present language.

My son started taking classes in this summer. So far, it is a very helpful and pleasant learning experience for him. Garrett knows how to work with young elementary age kids. He is always on time and very focused on his tutoring. We are happy to find him through take lessons.com and will recommend him highly.

After the second lesson with Bill, I was able to identify the specific areas of my voice that needed work. He's already been very helpful in developing my pronunciation and breathing and I look forward to future classes.
