Amazing!!! A bright, joyful light!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.
Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

"We've briefly tried guitar instructions at a studio and in my home and weren't really happy with either. Decided to give it another go and were very lucky to find Rebecca.
My 10 year old grandson is learning to play an electric guitar whereas I favor the acoustic. Instead of doing 2 separate half hour lessons, Rebecca let us combine them into a single hour that we take together. Doing the lessons together makes it easy to see how Rebecca makes adjustments to each person's abilities and instrument. A number of the songs in the music book are made for 3 separate guitars, which makes it more enjoyable/interesting as each one of us (including Rebecca) take turns playing a different guitar's section at the same time.
A real down to earth individual that is both joyful and serious. I keep coming up with questions regarding music and playing the guitar. Whether its part of the lesson or not; she is always provides me with an answer that is easy to understand.
I would highly recommend Rebecca as an instructor."

"It has long been an unmet dream of mine to learn how to sing - but I was always scared to try- I only sang in the car and sounded pretty awful.

Finally as a middle aged adult I mustered my courage for lessons and called Dan Gardner. Not only has Dan taught me the basics ( and beyond) of proper vocal techniques he has helped me find my own voice.

He's a creative and passionate teacher and has made my lessons very personal; finding ways to uniquely guide me to my goals. He's taught me proper breathing and worked with me to stretch my vocal range. I've been taking lessons with Dan for well over a year. He keeps the lessons fresh and I always feel motivated and challenged.

Because of Dan I can sing and I can honestly say I like the sound of my voice. He's a gifted vocalist, an extraordinary teacher and a wonderful person. I recommend him highly."

"I took lessons with Rachel through the secondary lesson program at Oberlin College and it was a great experience! What I loved was that her teaching goals extended beyond how I sounded in the lesson itself, but also focused on trying to give me the tools for being able to properly and productively practice on my own. I also love her emphasis not just on proper technique and musicality, but also on expression."
