Please pass on to both Ben and John that Megan really enjoys working with them both! We never have to remind Megan of her lessons on Monday or Wednesday.

"Haileigh has definitely been enjoying her voice lessons and there's no question that she looks forward to seeing Martha each week. Martha is both energetic & fun while providing instruction, and my husband & I definitely appreciate her efforts! "

"I am really enjoying my lessons. Martha is wonderful, I love her teaching style and her approach. Since I have some experience singing, we skipped right to where I needed help and took it from there. I can't say enough about her. As far as the staff, they are very helpful and accommodating. I really don't have anything in the way of criticisms so all I can say is keep doing hat your doing. The other students I have met also seem to be as pleased. Keep up the good work!" Sincerely, Jay

"I am enjoying my lessons! Violin is on my bucket list and I am very happy to have lessons conveniently close to home. I have fund the cost reasonable and appreciate the ability to cancel a lesson with sufficient notice without penalty. This is a big deal for me! I have found the staff very friendly and welcoming at the studio. I also find the email regarding activities and scholarship for the kids remarkable. Music- Elements makes our corner of the world a better place!! I have learned a lot from Amanda! She is a dedicated and patient teacher. I am enjoying getting to know her and developing a relationship with her. I feel my success is directly correlated to my relationship with my teacher. I am 60 years old and even at 60, I care about a friendly, relaxed student/teacher relationship!" -Becky

Anita was a pleasure to deal with, prompt and very courteous and welcoming. This choice was also local. . -Linda

"I absolutely LOVE my lessons with my voice instructor. She is so fantastic and inspiring. I really enjoy working with her!" -Jennifer K

"My oldest daughter has been with Music Elements for a year and a half and she loves it! She takes voice lessons; only after a few lessons her voice quality and range improved quite noticeably. Since then my daughter has had many performances, solos and leads in shows. Anita, the owner, is so welcoming and accommodates us with lessons to work around our busy schedules if needed. She answers her e-mails right away and is always pleasant! My second oldest started taking piano and is thriving with progress every week. The waiting room offers crayons for my younger ones - and coffee/water for adults (which is so nice after a long day). The staff is friendly and the students leave happy! I'm so glad that Anita found me on here and we are thankful to work with such a talented, successful school right here in our home town! Boston and New York quality teaching in Chelmsford, Ma."

"I wanted to let you know how much Erin and Sean LOVE their music lessons! They are both so happy at your school. Sean came out of his lessons with Ben [Knight] last week and told me how much fun he is having with piano. He has never said that before. Ben is wonderful with him! It's so nice to see him excited about the piano. Erin absolutely loves voice lessons! She is amazing! She can't wait to go to lessons each week."  -Shannon
