Great Singing Teacher

Rebecca has helped me reach my goal of becoming a more accomplished choir member. I sing alto and before I took lessons with her, it was very difficult for me to stay on my part. She also helped me to breathe correctly and sing without straining my voice. I have learned SO MUCH from her, from how to warm up to how to project my voice so it can be heard. I am much more confident about my voice. She is a great teacher.

I've gotten so much better!

So far, with just having three lessons with Jeff, I feel that the amount that I have progressed in three weeks is far greater than the amount I've improved in the two years I've been drumming! I highly recommend Jeff to anybody.

I have taken piano from Susan for 6 months now and have enjoyed everything about our online lessons. Susan is super gifted not only as a pianist, but also as a teacher who can make you feel good about yourself after the lesson has just flown by. Susan's pleasant personality and calm demeanor are an added bonus. I know whoever considers Susan as a teacher will not be disappointed and in fact will be ultimately delighted.

Awesome Teacher

Susan, you are a great piano teacher and I am so glad that my son's first piano lessons were with you! He really enjoys it and you, but unfortunately we have fallen on some unforeseen financial difficulties in the last couple of week and I am not sure that we can continue lessons until things get better for us. I am very disappointed and I know Steele is as well. Take good care and thank you for showing us that this is something we should pursue in the future!Penney

I am fluent in Chinese Cantonese and Mandarin and have extensive study in both. I also do a lot of translation work and have had experience teaching grades 1-6 Chinese.

About Ophelia

I am a Hunter College graduate with a B.A in Music with concentration on Music Performance and Music Theory. I studied under Professors from well-credited music institutes like Harvard and Yale. I specialize my curriculum with not only playing the piano for performance, but also help students develop musicianship by training their vocals (such as sight singing) and ears. I also teach Music Theory along side that as well as some Music History. My lessons are conducted so that students can become a more well-rounded musician. In addition, I am also in a band so I can also teach popular music forms. Furthermore, I have experience teaching private one-on-one lessons as well as group lessons as I have worked in a piano studio before also. In addition, I am fluent in English, ...

My 14 year old daughter loves music lessons from Ophelia. I can say this is the first time my daughter has ever expressed this much interest in music. I was glad I was able to find Ophelia through another friend of mine whose daughter also learns from Ophelia. Whenever Ophelia teaches a new piece of music, she goes over the composer's history with her, teaches the theory behind the piece, and does a ton of musicianship training. The lessons are truly worth their cost. It makes my daughter learn so much, just as if she was going to school. I've got to say, Ophelia is worth her price tag. Anywhere else with this kind of private music training would probably go for at least $100 per 45 minute or more.

Ophelia is truly wonderful for helping my daughter pick up piano again. She is 15 years old and there's a lot of distractions that kept her from practicing piano. Ophelia was able to help her find interest in it again. Her teaching style is truly unique. After my daughter took her lessons she gradually became a better and happier musician and not just play off the books. Ophelia teaches music theory, singing and more to really help benefit my daughter overall! I will definitely be recommending her to my daughter's classmates!

About Amber

Growing up in Denver, I had a huge desire for singing and performing. By age 14, I was taking weekly singing & piano lessons, was acting constantly in local productions-many times getting the lead role. Some of the productions I acted in: The Wizard of Oz (Dorothy), Camelot, Anything Goes (Reno Sweeney), How to Succeed in Business (Smitty), Carousel, Oklahoma, Les Miserables, and Oliver (Nancy.) I received a 4-year scholarship to the Conservatory of Music in Stockton, CA. at the University of the Pacific. Upon graduation, I entered graduate school at the University of North Texas to continue my singing and piano studies, along with music theory, history, and musical video production. Upon graduating UNT, I was chosen among 200 performing arts majors to be the featured soloist at ...

Amber is our church's music director and as a member of the worship team I have had the opportunity to observe her interact with students, including my wife. Needless to say, I was quite impressed with her abilities. But, I didn't realize the scope of her wonderful expertise until I began taking voice lessons from her. The awesome thing about Amber is her ability to interact with the student on the student's level. In other words, Amber has the wonderful ability of sharing her musical expertise by teaching in such a gentle, encouraging and patient manner that makes taking lessons from her a joy and privilege. Although, her knowledge of music is second to none, she teaches in such a gracious manner that the student doesn't feel like they are being talked-down-to.

Amber has changed the way I sing in front of people by teaching me to use my diaphragm more for air. I play numerous string instruments now in church along with Amber. She has helped me decipher the keys in music as well as coordinate my playing skills in timing. I have been playing music for over fifty years and I am still learning thanks to Amber. I personally recommend as an instructor for any beginner or a sound musician.

Very professional and patient

Ms Olsen has been giving my daughter piano lessons for a year. She comes to our home and is very professional, timely and patient. My daughter has made great progression with her piano, she looks forward to her lessons and practices without me having to remind her. It's so convenient that she comes to our house, and she communicate with me . I would highly recommend her.

Voice Has Never Been Better

In my now four years with her, Ms. Olsen has been an amazing, kind, and awesome teacher to have and work with. If it wasn't for her, my voice wouldn't sound as beautiful as it would have sounded without her teaching me. Going from classical songs to Italian songs to now modern/pop songs, my voice has gone through many different techniques to help my singing become better, which it has. Overall, I have learned a bunch from Ms. Olsen and I wouldn't want a different teacher either way. I am really happy my mother asked me if I wanted to take voice lesson. Thank you Ms. Olsen! :)

A shining star

Cymbaline Olsen is a shining star. Her talent and energy is boundless. Her ability to calmly listen, to sculpt, and to mold vocalists of all ages, ranges and abilities is second to none. Many acclaimed vocalists have minimal strengths in terms of "coaching-up" less competent vocalists. Cymbaline, however, is a natural teacher. She is a rare talent in that regard. Cymbaline's strength is teaching and performance. Her expertise in music theory, vocal phrasing and vocal scales is extraordinary. Cymbaline can teach you that Yes...you Can Sing....And Yes, you will!
I highly recommend Cymbaline for your Vocal Lessons.

Private language tutoring can help your student get ahead in their language class, even if they've fallen behind their peers.

The Benefits Of Language Tutoring

There are many benefits your child will enjoy right away once they start language tutoring with TakeLessons.

Your child will have the privilege of learning with a tutor who has a terrific understanding of their foreign language, and who will be able to qu

iz them and go over words they find difficult over and over again. Our language tutors make learning a new language enjoyable. Your child will be challenged every time they sit down with their tutor, and it won't be long before they stop viewing learning a new language as a chore, and start seeing it as something fun.

What Will You Get With Language Tutoring?

Each language has its own difficulties and it's important to work with a tutor who has complete understanding of the language.
