Music has been an integral part of my world, playing a major role in both my personal and professional life.

I would like to write a follow up review about Ms. Barbara.

I have been taking singing lessons for about 5 months with Ms. Barbara.
When I came to Ms. Barbara I had a few hurdles I needed help and assistance in. The end goal was to be able to have my performance on stage. Ms. Barbara composed the right vocal exercises for me to practice so my voice becomes stronger and more stable, that the breath taking is correct and will allow me to hold the notes i need better and even sing high notes.

I went on stage feeling happy, excited and confident. My performance was a success!
Thank You Ms. Barbara!!

Barbara is very musical, very talented and very attuned to my needs. She is not only a singing teacher or a pianist, she is all and more. Most importantly, she is a mentor.

Robert has the great ability to combine theory with fun! He quickly assessed where I needed the most work and tailored his lessons to those areas. He's very professional, positive, and encouraging. I would highly recommend Robert to anyone interested in learning or improving upon their piano skills!

Robert is absolutely wonderful! My 7 year old daughter is autistic and her attention span is very short. Robert is always very patient with her and praises her learning. He took the initiative to research different ways to approach her piano lessons so her learning was more effective. He is punctual and respectful to everyone in the house (including the needy french bulldog) He is very good at what he does. What a great person to shape the future of music!

Mr. Jeff is so talented, and works very well will children. My 12yr old thinks he's awesome. After each lesson my son talks about what he learned with excitement. Before leaving each lesson, Mr. Jeff will ask my son and me to give him feedback and if there is anything we would like to change/do, just let him know. And forget about talented, that speaks for itself once he picks up those sticks. But most of all we appreciate his patience and great instruction. Totally feel lucky to have found him. Definitely a prize Instructor, that I would recommend hands down.
