She’s such a wonderful instructor. After only a few lessons, my voice has DRASTICALLY improved. Even when my self esteem isn’t there when I sing, she always lifts me up and boosts my confidence. I am very happy with her work and will continue my lessons.

I was awaken by my teenage daughter’s singing and I was immediately brought to tears because she has always had a nice voice, however after just a few lessons with Tanisha, her voice is remarkable! I’m excited to see what the future holds! Thank you Tanisha!!

I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

I had virtually no musical ability or experience prior to my online lessons with Lela, however she has brought the joy out of finding a new musical part of my life. While I am no Carlos Santana, I'm enjoying slowly improving with Lela's guidance and look forward to daily practice.

Lela is an excellent piano teacher. She has so much patience with my daughter who is autistic and very active. I’m so glad I made the right choice picking the right teacher for my daughter. Thank you Lela for being so kind.

I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position.
