Deanne really helped me grow as not only a singer, but as a performer! I saw great improvement over my three years working with her and she the most caring and supportive teacher!

Deanne has been so wonderful with this shift to online teaching. Deanne is talented, patient, intelligent, and really makes any student improve tremendously. Any student is lucky to learn from Deanne.
Franc N.
I agree with everything the other reviewer and student said. Deanne is very knowledgeable, positive and enthusiastic. And she makes voice lessons really enjoyable. I was on the fence with taking voice lessons and I am extremely glad I went with it, and Deanne is a big part of this reason.

I specialize in teaching beginning piano, and the vast majority of my students are beginners. All of my piano students use Nancy and Randall Faber's Piano Adventures series, which has adapted versions for very young learners, older beginners, and adult learners. Students will have music theory and history incorporated into every lesson, and will usually have a homework assignment incorporating these as well. Once a student has mastered the basics, I will introduce classic literature appropriate to his or her level. I encourage all of my piano students to participate in OMEA Solo and Ensemble contest when they reach the appropriate age and skill level.

I've been playing for 15 years and teaching for 5. For beginners we will learn basic notation, fingering, scales and classic Irish rhythms (jigs, reels, hornpipes, etc.). For intermediate and advanced students we will spend time on improving fingering skills, learning ornamentation and refining breathing techniques. With beginners I will choose tunes that will help them progress to high proficiency, and with the more advanced students I will encourage them to choose tunes they are specifically interested in learning. If I don't know them, we'll learn together!

About Lee

I love Irish Traditional Music, and one of the best parts is its history of sharing!

Stefani
Lessons are fun, informative and a good balance between "Lets work on this skill,""Let's learn a new tune," and "Here's a fun fact!" Also made it easy to work lesson times into my, at times, insane schedule. Very encouraging and got me comfortable with actually playing in sessions at the local pub. Highly recommend.
Marco
Lee is a great instructor - engaging and fun to work with. I have noticed significant improvements in my playing over the last few weeks, and my family is appreciative too, to the point that I no longer need to hide in a remote corner of the house to practice :-)
Highly recommended.

"Michelle and Rob are by very far the best voice instructors I've had and I have had several. They are both very personal and have a great approach to teach the fundamentals and take you along a great journey to become a better singer! I highly recommend them both to anyone interested in developing their singing abilities!"

"Very impressed so far. Toni didn't let on that the exercise was difficult until after. So my daughter flew through the lesson without fear because she's just doing what she loves and not thinking of struggle. Toni has the depth and breadth of musical knowledge but makes it fun and easy breezy. Everything out of her mouth has been exactly what I hoped to hear whether I realized it or not. I'm so grateful to have found her and I hope we can work together for a long time to come"

My 6 year old son and I are both students and love him!

It’s the same for my son. He has been teaching my son sight reading and the importance of practicing every day. I can already see an improvement!"

"Teri is a premier vocal coach. When I first came to her, I didn't know what I was doing; I knew I had some talent, but didn't know how to hone it. Teri was just the person I needed. A vocalist herself from the school of hard knocks, Teri's real life artist experiences give her unique insights into what makes a vocalist tick and how to discover and nurture one's artistry. She has an excellent ear and is a phenomenal teacher. Teri has an upbeat style; always positive and encouraging, but also honest and straightforward. Teri tells it like it is out of love for the art form and her students. She's a vocal coach extraordinaire, and I highly recommend her."

"Where do I begin? Christine is a woman with a voice, not only will you learn proper singing and the fundamentals of music. But she will encourage you to dream and think BIG. I have such respect for Ms. Christine and her love for music, that I tell everyone I meet, to take lessons with Ms. Christine.

If you truly want a teacher who cares about you and your musical dreams, then you NEED to take lessons with Ms. Christine. She has taught me and my Day Care children so much about music education, I will forever be grateful to her talents. Thanks you so much Ms. Christine!
