The 30 minutes I spend with Stacey are the bright spot in my week. In just 3 short lessons, this 72 year old has learned so much! Stacey's enthusiasm and support for the student come together to create an environment in which the student can explore their limits. Her understanding of proper singing technique and phrasing and her ability to evoke same in her students is exemplary - in other words, I love my voice teacher, Stacey!

Terrific Teacher

He is a stupendous teacher. He makes his students feel comfortable, which is essential for optimal performance, without being excessively lax. The diaphragmatic breathing technique he began our first lesson with has proven to be incredibly valuable in signing and in my life in general.

Has a gifted teaching ability

David has been an excellent teacher for my young children. He is patient, encouraging, and has a good teaching method. My children made good progress and although they were skeptical about taking lessons, once they had a lesson with David, they continued to come back and made very good progress.

David is an incredible teacher and mentor. I recommend him without any reservations.

David is not only gifted at building your talent and ability - he will help you build your confidence. I took weekly singing lessons with David, starting with no experience at all, and he took me to a place I never thought I could be. Lessons are relaxed, efficient, and directed at your own pace, and David has a way of making you very comfortable with his patient, kind demeanor. He is a diamond in the rough, and easily worth 2x the money.
Christopher M. Cincinnati, OH

About Christopher

I believe that everyone can enjoy singing. Not everyone gets the opportunity to sing at the Metropolitan Opera, Broadway, or other world famous music halls. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness. If you have never tried to sing for fear of embarrassment, or If you love to sing and want to learn more or if you just want to brush up and fine tune, my studio is the place for you. Nonetheless, I believe that with proper training, patience, and practice everyone can enjoy the art of singing within their own level of giftedness. I take time to listen to a student's instrument and lesson by lesson determine what is the best course of positive action that I and the student need to ...

About Margaret

I have taught the piano along with guitar and voice for over 40 years, since I was 16 years old. I started lessons at 9 and continued lessons while I began teaching beginners at a music studio. Since then I have had many different experiences with all kinds of students. I love sharing the gift of music with my students. My goal is to give them a wonderful musical experience and allow them to expand their knowledge of music in a structured manner and can grow to become a casual or professional musician. *** Lesson Details *** I adjust my teaching style to the students goals. I like to say I am laid back but do expect progress each week. I can teach the piano for beginner to advanced students. Some students are college bound and need to learn the disciplines of music.

Best Teacher I Had

I had a few teachers growing up and she was by far the best and I learned the most from her. As well as teaching the fundamentals and essentials to learning, she also allowed for a lot of flexibility and creativity to learn different styles of music. Also as I got older we could just discuss a lot of subjects on music and was genuinely fun. Had a huge impact in my playing and then also future teaching of piano.

PJ is a great instructor. He is teaching solid basic skills in addition to keeping the content interesting. He provides excellent feedback in a manner which makes our teen want to correct/improve rather than get frustrated or defensive. PJ also went out of his way to meet our regular schedule request and works effectively via Skype. He has been very accommodating and even pushed a lesson out 2 hours when our son got stranded at school one day. We are looking forward to many Great lessons with PJ and I think that our teen's exposure to him will further ignite his passion in music - really, what more could you ask for than that.
