David C. Glenside, PA

About David

Having graduated from Westminster Choir College, I have learned many techniques for helping students to understand their voices better. I have taken voice lessons myself since 2002, and still do take them. This gives me the opportunity to learn new and different techniques. As every student is different, there are many different techniques that can help the student to find their voice. One style of teaching that I really feel is important when discussing the voice is the idea of just singing. Often times, as was my experience, when people hear voices they like they will mimic that sound. The problem with that is that the person will start singing with a voice that does not work with their body. That is usually my first goal if they have this particular issue. Many times ...

David was a great voice teacher! It was my first time taking voice lessons and he made it a very comfortable experience. David helped me to find my voice and then we worked to get the most out of it that we could.

David is a fantastic voice teacher. From the first very lesson, he helped me feel comfortable as I started the the sometimes awkward process of finding my voice. When it comes to technique, he has that rare ability to translate complex ideas and mechanics into simple, easy-to-understand concepts that translate into fast improvement. I have been taking voice lessons with him for just over a year, and the progress I have made in that time is remarkable. Thanks to David, I have truly discovered my voice. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to discover or improve their singing voice. He's fantastic!!

About Benjamin

I grew up in Glenside moved to Pittsburgh for school and came back because I love it here...I've been playing for 17 years and have a smorgasbord of influences from Zeppelin to the Beatles to Phish to Radiohead to the dirty projectors to Jay Z to Kurt Rosenwinkel & John Scofield. I have been composing and working with original bands for some 11 years and play regularly in the city and up and down the east coast. I have also been teaching for the past 11 years all over the Philadelphia area. i teach from a method I derived myself from years of learning both in and out of school. I think teaching music is both aural as well as visual and encourage students to listen to music a lot. most of all i feel that music is fun and the students should enjoy learning so i incorporate their favorite ...

Ben was fabulous! He taught me music I wanted to play at a speed that fit for me and simplified harder songs for a beginner like me to still be able to play a song I loved! Great teacher and picks up on your strengths and weakness. I would highly recommended him as a teacher! He's also funny and would make lesson's enjoyable! He was friendly to my dog and birds as well :)

Dena is a wonderful teacher. My daughter who is now eight has been taking piano lessons for over a year. In that time my daughter can not only read and play, but now has a real appreciation for instrumental music. Dena is a very patient and thorough in communicating both theory and technic to children.
It is not difficult to see that her education and professional experience enable her to effectively teach music to young minds. She is an exceptional teacher!!

So happy we found Dena!

My 9 yr old daughter loves her singing lessons with Dena! She loves to sing so much, I thought it would be a good idea to have her get lessons. She was nervous at first, but she really enjoys the lessons, and she's definitely improved under Dena's direction. Dena is warm and friendly, and yet professional at the same time. We're very pleased, and I would recommend her to anyone!

He knows exactly what he is doing. He has shown me techniques my past 2 instructors failed to even attempt to show me. I'm not where I want to be but with him I am confident I'm on my way. Whether you're a beginner or advanced there's always room for improvement and Desmond will find it within that session. He is willing to work with you schedule and need I mention very affordable. You won't regret his classes!

Good product with excellent skills.

I've had the opportunity to work with Desmond upon forming his Vocal Ensemble choir, that had a Classical based foundation. As one of the Ensembles’ founding member I sang with the alto line, and found great joy and fulfillment in attending rehearsals.
Within six months of our choirs’ conception we had an enormous repertoire, and was touring, appearing on television, attending interviews with the media, performing in and winning competitions. Needless to say Desmond’s musical skills was a ray of sunlight, which came our way boosting our self confidence, while creating success for the group. I’m happy to have been a part of this group and am pleased to recommend Desmond to anyone who is serious and wants to learn music.

A nurturing teacher

I have worked with Desmond previously (as an accompanist for one of his choirs). Desmond is a very gentle, kind spirit and I believe he would be a very nurturing teacher for a voice student. He also has the advantage of having a very broad background in different styles of music, from reggae to jazz/pop to classical.
Ricky G. Ambler, PA

About Ricky

Hi! Thanks for checking out my profile. My students call me "Mr. Rick." I teach acoustic guitar lessons for kids and adults, beginners through intermediate. I'm the ideal teacher for those who want to play by "ear" while learning the essentials of chord structure, music theory, rhythm, and proper technique for strumming and playing the instrument. I like making people laugh and having them relax and feel comfortable at our lessons together. I enjoy working with people coming back to guitar, or just starting for fun because they love the guitar! For students who want to play at open mics or in a band, lessons include coaching on performance, and how to pull it all together (including how to properly use the mic and vocal techniques for singing while playing ...

About Rachel

One of my many loves is singing and imparting my knowledge onto others. I have a BM in Voice from Mannes the New School for Music and a Masters in Voice Performance from Rice University. I recently worked for four months with Utah Opera and I have returned to my home, Philadelphia to Teach and Freelance. I believe that singing should be a liberating, supportive and universal experience and I hope to help my students grow as people as well as musicians. In my lessons, I teach vocal technique, repertoire, musicianship skills, stage deportment as well as acting for singing and Audition preparation.

Rachel is amazing! She is very affirming, yet pushes you to challenge yourself. She believes in your ability and teaches techniques that are suited to your unique vocal talent and ability. She also provides helpful explanations and works with you to find ways of understanding your body that make sense to you. Very intelligent and caring as well. If I still lived in the same city as her, I would be taking lessons with her now!

Introduction to Violin Music Notes
The violin is often considered by musicians to be one of the most challenging instruments to learn.
