Erika H.
Karen is so friendly, sweet, and methodical in teaching style. It is wonderful to be introduced to dulcimer with her and - literally - learn how to fine tune my instrument with her tips and encouragement. She makes me even more excited to tune and play my instrument. I can easily get happily lost simply in the tuning process with my dulcimer as it brings me a lot of joy just to hear the notes come into tune and playing very small, minor amounts of things on my dulcimer as is... it is so nice to have a guide like Karen to help me better to understand and dance with my dulcimer, learn about music and how the dulcimer strings are arranged, and how to hold the hammers! I thought I was excited to learn before... I'm even more happy and excited now and have some clear, down to earth steps to begin to actually really play with my instrument!

I’m so glad that I found her! Very professional and informative!

It a great experience so far !

Keith is great! My nearly 6 year old son has only been seeing Keith for a few weeks, but he’s already learned so much. Keith is everything you want in a teacher - he’s funny, patient and has a really great way of explaining drumming concepts is such a way that even a student as young as my son can grasp. Even my son has said Keith is a great teacher!

Keith is a great teacher! He gives excellent technical instruction and makes it a lot of fun. Our son loves his lessons with Keith!

My goal as a teacher is to help my students to find out what their goals are musically, encourage them to do the practices and guide them into the right direction, so that in the end of the day, they would be able to play what they really like, be better on the instrument and have fun with it!

I love the voice, and I love to teach students how to use theirs in a way that they understand what they are doing, and how to make it work reliably for them. I have years of experience teaching voice in both the New York/New Jersey area, as well as the Southern California. During that time I have helped students successfully prepare for amateur and professional auditions, choral auditions, and recitals, concerts, and solos. I am interested in helping students really perform a piece of music, and not just sing the words and the music. I'm excited to hear your voice!

Anne is an experienced vocalist and an incredible coach. She can address technique issues quickly and provides effective correction so you can sound your best!
Christina
I've been taking lessons with Anne for years. She's accomodating and versatile. The last voice lesson I had with her helped me nail my audition and clean up all the rough edges on the piece I had learned. Needless to say, I got the part!
What I love most about Anne's lessons is her patience when working through something to prefect it. She wants you to perform to the best of your ability. Just as she challenges herself, she challenges you. HIGHLY suggest.
Molly
Anne is knowledgeable, passionate, and deeply devoted to her students. She has a clarity about the way she explains vocal concepts that makes it very accessible. She also had a beautiful voice and is an excellent musician and performer.
