“Ellen, is such a great choice, and i am glad i was able to find her. She is so cheerful, and she makes you feel so comfortable the first time you meet with her, i had not one nervous feeling, and i am very shy and nervous and i didn't feel shy or nervous.. I believe i can accomplish great things with Ellen. She has so much experience, and can do wonders. Please give Ellen a try, and what i also like is she lets you know she cares, she told me she will be here to help me with my career :) .”
“Today was my first voice lesson in my life, and my teacher was Ellen Smith. Ellen did a great job with the introduction, she is so soulful and joyful about her job and singing. You can tell she'll make learning a very positive and encouraging situation. I look very forward to continuing with her.”
Clarinet and Saxophone
I specialize in classical clarinet, with a healthy dose of saxophone (jazz included) on the side.
Positive and energetic teacher with 20 years of experience
“Shauna is an energetic and skilled piano teacher. She is knowledgeable and comfortable teaching music from a variety of eras. She is serious about improving her students' musical skills but maintains a laid-back attitude. She improved my practice techniques and helped me become a better performer. Although I took lessons from her as a teenager, I can tell she is particularly good with younger kids. ”
“Shauna Leavitt is an extremely talented and experienced piano teacher. Since being with Shauna, my daughter (age 10) has come leaps and bounds in her skill level, playing in several area competitions and scoring superior ratings. Shauna knows just how to challenge her students, while also fostering a real love and appreciation for playing and performing. We couldn't ask for anything more. Can't recommend her highly enough!”
I've worked with John Legend, Yolanda Adams and taught voice at Harlem School of the Arts in New York City.
“I could not have been happier. Mr. Simmons was absolutely what I was looking for. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable (which is obvious by his resume), but he is able to explain vocal exercises and music in a down to earth way so that it is not overwhelming for beginners like me. I would find it hard to believe someone, beginner or professional, would not only benefit from working with Mr. Simmons, but also have the time of their life doing it!”
“i think he's a very good teacher im looking forward to working with him”
