Andy made me feel really comfortable as a student. We went through some basic sight singing and rhythm exercises to get an idea of where I was in my learning. He is extremely knowledgeable and patient. By the end of our first lesson I was able to start sight singing a few simple melodies and counting some basic rhythms. I am glad I have decided to get a tutor. I’m excited to see the progression of sight singing and theory skills over the next few months.
Having this skill will enable me to be more of an asset rather than a liability in choral situations. So, I searched and found Jody through Wyzant. Jody makes it fun, yet a challenging experience. Jody is extremely patient! Jody has worked extra hard with me utilizing various techniques to get me to understand the concepts of sight-singing. It is never stagnant or by rote; Jody really keeps it interesting. In short, Jody is an awesome teacher.
Sight singing isn't rocket science, of course, but I had various reactions to it over time from avoidance to fear to questioning its value. Jenny is helping break down those barriers with her patient, understanding, and enthusiastic approach.
