Therapeutic Music Lessons
Therapeutic lessons are available for those who are differently abled or interested in alternative methods of learning music from a therapeutic lens. Please inquire for details.
First.... YOU MUST HAVE YOUR OWN INSTRUMENT FOR PRACTICE AT HOME BEFORE BEGINNING LESSONS!!! Consistency is very important for learning, and weekly lessons ARE NOT enough for growth. The home studio is in a private music room. Books are available for the lessons themselves (not for practice at home), and music can be downloaded or printed out as desired. Links and sheet music can be emailed as needed. Feel free to bring any additional equipment music you would like to share.
Students set their own pace for their lessons. Each lesson is completely customized. Each students sets a goal plan so that the time spent is interesting, fun, and works toward progress! In 3-6 months, students will have a stable technical program and will have started a portfolio of music for performances, no matter the level.
Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance. Failure to do so will result in forfeiting your down payment or lesson fee. If the studio needs to close for any reason, all lessons will be rescheduled based on availability. Your teacher has the right to terminate services at any time for any reason. All services are non-refundable, but transferable.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Eda, Voice Student
She is worth your time and money investment. Very efficient and effective in her feedback. You see improvements in your singing and talking voice relatively quickly.
Lyla N., Piano Student
She's really nice and very easy to talk to. I was honestly really scared to start online lessons since I've never done them before, and I'm always nervous to meet new people, but she broke the ice easily.
Erick, Piano Parent
I can give her more than 10 stars out of 5. She is great and my son who just turned 7 loves and enjoys the class. Loretta has a great personality and works great with kids. I will recommend her to all my friends and family members.
Austin W., Voice Parent
Our almost 4 year old son loves music and singing and we thought this might be fun for him! Lesson 1 was fun for all of us! Loretta knew the perfect questions to help him loosen up, the coolest super kid fun breathing exercises and the most fun songs! We are so excited to have this to look forward to each week and already dream of instrument lessons when he’s ready! Such good energy and a beautiful voice! Quite a way to start our week!
Kevin J., Voice Student
You won’t regret it. She is the most caring, passionate, kind, funny, and knowledgeable instructors! Just three lessons in and I’ve learned so much for just starting out as a beginner and I feel so comfortable to keep on working with her
Isabelle L., Voice Parent
Loretta was great with my 5 year old grand daughter. She took time and was very patient with her first lesson.
We are looking forward to next week.
Tamara Evans, Voice Student
Loretta is amazing. She has so much experience, a wonderful personality, and know how to tailor the lesson for your skill level and specific goals.
Teresa H., Therapeutic Voice
Loretta is the perfect singing teacher. I am brand new at this and I was terrified to sing in front of another person. She made me feel super comfortable and it’s all good! I am loving our time together and She makes me feel like she is, too.
Calvin R., Voice Student
This lady is awesome and very patient! I’m so happy that she was flexible given that my pursuit is not her preferred genre. She is very helpful and explains what needs to be done in layman’s terms. I’d encourage anyone new to link up with he and let her help you achieve your goal(s)!!!!
Emily, Broadway Voice Student
Loretta has been a wonderful voice teacher! She is supportive, warm and inviting. She immediately makes me feel comfortable exploring new techniques and exercises. I am consistently blown away by her ability to take a creative approach to our repertoire and finding songs that really fit who I am and what I need. You won't be disappointed!
Dave, Voice Student
I can't say enough great things about Lorretta!! I am so happy I found her. She has a real enthusiasm and passion for teaching and it shows! Her style challenging but always fun! When I am having difficulty with a particular piece she always has several different methods to assist me. She is willing to take the time to make sure that I understand... She "gets it"! If you are serious about learning music, get Loretta!
Robin, Audio Recording
Loretta is one of the hardest working musicians I’ve ever had the pleasure to learn from. Will be working with her for years to come and connecting her with any friends who are interested in learning more about music as a practice and field. I am trained in writing and visual arts, and Loretta has opened a new world of sound to my practice.
