If you’re interested in learning photography – congratulations! Photography is a fun, practical hobby as well as an exciting career. Although learning photography does take a little patience, the rewards are certainly worth it. So, let’s start with the benefits of why you should learn photography.

- The ability to record special events like a child’s birthday, graduation or the family’s vacations with clear, focused well composed photographs.

- Never missing a picture of a special moment because you were searching for the right button or dial.

- Taking photos that you and your loved ones will enjoy displaying on your wall. By capturing your special memories in pictures, you can have a way to document and pass on these memories to future generations.

- Communicating through your photographs. A picture really is worth a thousand words! You can capture an expression that says it all. Or as we've seen in magazines like Time and National Geographic, you can shoot photographs ...

very unprofessional. I was not late, but instead went to the wrong apartment. Instead of asking if I was running late or got lost, he sent me a riddle about being late: "To be early is to be one time. To be on time is to be late. To be late is to be in trouble." I'm an adult, I don't need to be told i'm in trouble. Rubbed me the wrong way.

We appreciate the work you've done with Jacob. He is practicing on his own which must mean he enjoys it. Jacob has one more week of drivers ed 10/3 and then we should be able to go back to 4:30. Thanks! Angie Collier

I highly recommend taking voice lessons with Ross! I took lessons with Ross for just under a year when he was teaching in the Boston area. First, I was in an a Capella singing class Ross taught. In a short time, he had our group working together well to make good music. Ross is a very positive and encouraging teacher and could always zero in quickly on exactly what we needed to work on to improve our sound. I also took private voice lessons with Ross, and he helped me to successfully prepare an audition for a summer vocal program. As a private teacher, I always felt like he was always able to help me identify a couple of strategies to fix any problem I was having, so I grew a lot as a singer. He has a wealth of knowledge about musical theater, and helped me to really understand the piece I was working on, so I could make my performance come alive. I felt like he really cared about my vocal development and I learned many things that I will always use when I sing.

Ross is a fabulous vocal teacher! After spending months working with Ross, I learned a lot about myself and my voice...like learning how to use my voice as an instrument. One of the best things Ross encourages through his teaching style, is the importance of singing the correct way, without straining your voice. Ross is a great person to work with. He takes the time to explain concepts thoroughly and makes sure that you understand. Ross is very personable and makes lessons enjoyable for the student. I strongly recommend Ross for anyone who wants to increase their proficiency in vocal performance!

My daughter took voice lessons from Ross for just under a year, before he moved to New York. Not only is he an incredibly talented performer himself, he is a very effective teacher as well. My daughter was immediately comfortable with Ross and his teaching style and made great strides in a relatively short period of time. Ross is a knowledgeable and encouraging instructor. I highly recommend him, especially if your interest lies in musical theatre. I only wish he still lived in Boston!

When you first meet Tony you sense immediately his passion and love for music; this comes through in his teaching style and attitude. Our 2 daughters (ages 13 and 11) have been taking lessons from Tony for about 3 months and we are definitely seeing improvements in their abilities. He has a knack for challenging them without them really knowing that's what he's doing--he pushes (gently) on them to reach their potential. Our girls enjoy taking lessons from Tony and look forward to seeing him each week, they practice without being asked (most days) and look forward to learning more interesting and challenging music. I would absolutely recommend Tony as an instructor for children or adults.

Tony has been teaching my 8 year old grand-daughter, Nevea, for about 6 months. Tony knows how to effectively teach younger children and has the patience needed to know the correct learning pace that each student can deal with. Nevea loves it when Tony will occasionally accompany her with the guitar. I sit in on most of the lessons and enjoy listening to the interaction between teacher and student.
I would recommend Tony as a teacher for students of any age.

Tony is great! He helped expand my range and over come the enormous amount of stage fright I battled for years in just a small amount of time. His lessons helped establish my music on a more professional level and broadened my picture of the music industry. I wouldn't recommend anybody else! He is very motivating and inspirational, and you will definitely grow through his lessons.

Julie did an excellent job of explaining how to use my new 35 mm camera. She patiently answered all my questions. It is obvious she enjoys working with new photographers! I rate her 5 Stars for her knowledge and professionalism.
