I have been working with Kristen since June. I do not have a prior musical background of any kind and I have been wanting to learn how to sing for years. Thanks to Kristen, I am not only singing now, but also writing lyrics and composing music. Through Kristen’s music events (Song Camp, Business of Music, etc), I have learned extremely helpful tricks and tips, and met some very talented professionals in the music industry. I have come so far and it is all thanks to Kristen. If you’re serious about wanting to learn how to sing, learn how to play the piano, understand music theory, or write songs, I cannot recommend Kristen enough. She is truly helping me realize a dream come true and I cannot thank her enough.

I loved doing vocal lessons with Kristen. She is very down to earth and is well rounded in different styles of music. She also helped me with some sight reading and ear training. I would definitely work with her again.

I've been an active musician for about 12 years. Play a number of instruments and have spent my ENTIRE career looking for the right teacher. Kristen immediately knew what to do and for the first time in my life I can express myself vocally the way I've always dreamed. Words cannot express my gratitude. Kristen WILL take you to the next level, that's a guarantee.

Kristen is a very professional and talented person. She explains everything clearly and is so passionate about her work. She is a real, positive energy, sincerely wants you to succeed and teaches you in a way that is collaborative, honest and encouraging. Her high energy and good humor makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. Kristen easily recognize your needs and jump right in with techniques that helps to improve your vocal range immediately. I highly recommend Maxfield Music!

Kristen is a great voice teacher! She is encouraging and supportive, in addition to coaching the fundamentals. As someone who has taken quite a few years of lessons, I can tell you that I've never had a teacher who is like her. You will leave her lessons feeling empowered and confident. She works with you to figure out what is best for you, your voice quality, style, and most importantly, what you want to get out of lessons. She doesn't dictate, but guides, pushes for what she feels you're capable of, and encourages. I look forward to each lesson with Kristen.

As a somewhat younger self taught musician. As a performer I've experienced the music industry in all of its depths. I've spent years trying to find the right teacher. I knew 10 minutes into the first lesson that Kristen Maxfield is the only vocal coach I'll ever need.

My 15 year old has seen Kristen for a month now, and loves it. Kristen has a lot of experience, dives right in, and builds confidence quickly along the way. Every hour is full of valuable learning. I would highly recommend her.

I love music and always wanted to learn piano. I got to know Kristen through Thumbtack and started learning piano in June. It's been amazing, Kristen is really easy to work with, she is flexible about schedule and her teaching is awesome. The best part is she sees to it that you get the things right and perfect, makes you understand in easy manner. I love to learn piano with Kristen and always look forward for my piano lessons with her.

Kristen ensures that your vocal lessons are completely tailored to your vocal ability and goals. She makes it an enjoyable process; very encouraging. Kristen is ready to "work" right at the scheduled time and gives you a full hour sharing her expertise and experience. I always leave feeling good about the progress I made with clear instructions (homework) on how to improve. An excellent vocal coach!

I met Kristen through a co worker and I am so happy that I did! Even though I only worked with Kristen for a short time, I improved on my singing and also made a friend. She made the experience so relaxed and fun! Kristen is an amazing teacher and I will recommend anyone to her. Thank you Kristen for the experience and I will be back when I can!!

To start, Levi (6) is just starting to learn to play the piano and he just absolutely loves it. Kristen has made experience quite wonderful for him and he wants to continue to go. I've never seen him be so excited about going to anything. Anybody is considering to learn how to play an instrument or learn to sing would highly recommend maxfield music.
