There is so much good to be said about having Linda as your vocal instructor. Where do I start?
I have been going to Linda once a week for a little over 3 months thus far, and the improvement I have been seeing all thanks to her has been incredible. For a little over a year before finding her, I was doing various vocal exercises I had found on Spotify or a webinar I had purchased that helped grow my voice, but Linda was very easily able to identify what fundamental components I was lacking to TRULY make it grow in the ways I was looking for.
Linda taught me the essentials of sight singing and ear training that I have never been able to find elsewhere, and wouldn’t be able to do without her guidance. Almost every single lesson week to week, something new clicks with me and I am seeing noticeable improvement (given I practice at home at least a few nights each the week). I cannot emphasize enough on how important what Linda has been teaching me is. My pitch accuracy has been progressing at such a noticeable rate and I am becoming more and more equipped to sing on-pitch when singing a-cappella, and even alongside tracks whether that is a song or vocal exercise online. I run into some bumpy patches when learning new ear training exercises and tricks, but once they click with me they REALLY click and the improvements I notice are incredibly exciting and keeps me very eager in going to my next lesson with her.
Beyond Linda being keen on teaching me exactly what it is I need to truly improve my singing, she is incredibly attentive to her students and is very personable. She is an absolute pleasure to talk with whether it‘s directly about what she teaches, or literally anything else in life. I believe another reviewer says she is like a second mother which I would say is very accurate. Linda is very much an abstract thinker like I am and we are constantly talking about the depths of the psychology behind singing and sharing anecdotes as to why certain aspects are the way they are, which really resonates with me and helps me make sense of it all at deeper levels that you will rarely find anywhere else unless you have a great one-on-one instructor like her.
All in all, I am very blessed to have found Linda as my vocal instructor and can’t imagine finding anyone else that suites my needs in the ways that she does.
