REACTIONS TO FIRST LESSONS...
"Amazing! Simply amazing! I've taken lessons before, but none have ever stood out as much as this first one... Can't wait for the next one!"
- Nestor C. online from Texas (R&B)
"After just one lesson I noticed a huge difference in my voice. My voice sounded stronger, better supported and has depth and resonance that I had not been able to produce in years!!"
- Rocco I. in-studio (opera)
"I’ve been singing all my life and I never met such an amazing coach... I learned so much in one session and I cannot wait to learn more."
- Yasmine K. in-studio (jazz, R&B)
"Bulent worked with me - a total stranger - with great care, deep knowledge, and a gentle desire to see me improve. And this is all the FIRST LESSON... I give my highest recommendation."
- Geoff L. online from Tennessee (pop)
"... just in one lesson I vocalized to high C with the knowledge he gave me. I actually, for the first time, knew how I did it. It was incredible. I was so happy that for the first time in years of voice training in upstate New York, 10 years in Manhattan, New York City, studying with teachers who sang at New York City Opera and the Metropolitan Opera, and not one of them was able to teach me what Bulent taught me in one lesson..."
- Fausto Di Ianne in-studio (opera)

Perfect! Bulent is an excellent teacher and a delightful person. He is very knowledgeable on music. He is patient and responsible. He shows lot of passion on music and teaching, I have learned so much from the first lesson.
Definitely recommend him to the ones who want to improve their vocal technique.
I am thrilled to have the opportunity to learn from Bulent. I have no prior experience in music and decided to take voice coaching lessons so I can begin singing in my church. Bulent clearly has a vast knowledge of music and patiently taught me the fundamentals which I found very valuable for a beginner like me. I learned so much from the first lesson and was so motivated I immediately signed up for weekly sessions. Despite his many accomplishments and impressive music career, Bulent was down to earth, patient and friendly which made for a session where I felt more comfortable and more receptive to learn. I am very excited and optimistic to see how my voice improves over time!
Bulent is an exceptional and unique teacher. Blending great clarity, passion, knowledge and warmth, he has provided me with the tools to dramatically enhance my vocal talents. Whether breathing, posture, legato, tone, control, phrasing or otherwise, Bulent is remarkably attentive, engaging and effective. As layers of insight and achievement are unlocked, his vocal wisdom and musicianship contributes to my ever-deepening understanding. In a profound way, Bulent teaches me to "not-do", to get out of the way and let my body do what it naturally wants to do; although this may sound like a blithe Zen epiphany it is anything but. . .it requires extensive explanations and refined explanations, often attempting one sound many dozens of times before the smallest breakthrough. It requires great patience and caring on the part of the teacher. I unequivocally recommend Bulent and earnestly thank him.

Not only will he help you bring out the best of your musical potential, but he can offer great insight on how to live a healthier and more wholesome life. I'm honored to call this man a mentor, and a friend. Thanks Bulent!!"
