Earlier I took music lessons in another city. But moved to LA I decided to continue. For a long time could not decide with the teacher, but when I saw Griffith's ad and listened to his voice, I could not resist! And I made the right choice! Griffith real big talent and a wonderful teacher! We are engaged in more than half a year and I can already see a good result. When I go home after lessons I always in a good mood. Griffith helps me feel more confident! His approach is very wise and calm! How important it is! I advise everyone! And also I want to write a big gratitude to Griffith for everything what he makes for me))) P.S. And also I want to congratulate to Griffith Happy Birthday to and wish success in personal growth, a lot of good projects and the huge health! Thank you for being in my life!Highly recommended!!!

3 lessons already and singing has been much more fun! She is positive, honest, personal, knowledgeable, and a great resource! She's taught me to sing more naturally and how to perform and I'm glad I have the opportunity to learn from her! She certainly has a knack for developing this beautiful art in her clients! Thanks Jan!
Learning from Richard is awesome. What I love is how he focuses his lesson on you specifically rather than his other students. He's very open to working with different styles of music and has a classical/opera background, which he uses to demonstrate, so you know he's well versed in the craft. He really takes the time to explain to you what he's trying to get you to do and why, so that you understand it. It never feels like you're just practicing blindly. Since starting with him -- I've only had two lessons as of this review -- I've found that my higher notes, when I'm singing recreationally don't feel as strained they did before and singing lower notes has felt significantly easier. I'm excited to see how working with him will develop me as a vocalist. And the best part is, because he keeps his prices low, I'm never concerned that I can't afford to keep working at it.
Excellent piano lessons! I've learned lots of skills in Stephanies piano lessons!
Rickie is a fantastic voice teacher. Not only did she help me produce a clearer and more refined tone, teach me how to breathe effectively, and correct my singing posture, as well as help me in various other technical ways, but she also was interested in whatever was going on in my life and was always fun to talk to. Rickie's passion for music is obvious in her teaching and in her own beautiful voice (that's another bonus - she often demonstrates). She challenged me with a range of repertoire but was always flexible and took into consideration my musical interests. I'm sad I moved to another city; if I hadn't, I would still be going to my weekly lesson! I'm now in a collegiate a cappella group and look forward to continued vocal progress, thanks to this wonderful teacher.
In ONE lesson Marquita had me singing 3 octaves with a minor third above that. I was amazed; in my younger days I did have the three octaves (no minor third, tho) but as I got older I lost the ability and had lazily settled down to mezzo soprano range. She really knows the vocal instrument and has helped me conquer some of my breathing and performance problems. I find myself singing a lot more - even some solos at church. She turned me on to singing again - not bad for a 71 yr old, huh?
I am 57 years old (no Spring chicken) and came to Thomas for tenor sax lessons. My purpose is to perform and record sax solos for classic rock and blues. Thomas does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me a road map to achieve them. Very patient and intuitive.
I have been a student with Kimberly for ten years. I have been taking blues guitar lessons from her weekly. Kim is extremely professional. She tailors her teaching to the students interest and playing style. She is very patient and often goes the extra mile to help students progress. I have been a dedicated student because of this. I have had the pleasure of playing guitar with some of her other students in ensemble classes who all give her praise for the way she conducts business and teaches her classes. I highly recommend Kimberly Allison of Starliner music to anyone wishing to develop their skills in music.
Michael is an amazing teacher. Not only does he do a great job at explaining various techniques, but he also teaches the physicality of drumming, which has been very helpful for me. Within a few lessons I was reading music and playing actual songs. He's also really patient, and when I have a hard time grasping certain stuff he will turn it into an exercise. I've really enjoyed my time learning the drums with him!
Alex is amazing. I'm new to playing drums (but not to playing music). From the first lesson, Alex gave me exercises that were not only fun to practise, but also musically interesting. He teaches by introducing a student to great beats, not by getting bogged down in theory and technique. That said, my technique is definitely improving ( and Alex himself is a technically impeccable drummer) coming as a byproduct of working on enjoyable exercises (its not unusual for me to end up practising for two hours). In short, Alex knows how to drive home core musical foundations while keeping it fun. Alex is also a fun, friendly and personable teacher. I'll admit that he was not the least expensive quote I received on Thumbtack, but something about his methods and personality told me to give him a shot. I'm so glad I did!
Howard Richman is not a piano teacher...he is a LIFE CHANGER. I went to him to learn piano...but realized that the lessons I learned studying piano with the MASTER were not merely lessons in music....but lessons that helped me see outside the paradigm in all areas of my life. Often, as adults, we "come back" to our music...to study what we have been "wanting to get back to" for years. I learned that this is often a time of great change and evolution for us personally. Howard, being so intuitive, knows how to tune in to each individual's needs.... and empower them to EMPOWER themselves. He is a BRILLIANT pianist, composer and master teacher. I've watched him perform miracles with young children who struggled with other teachers who simply wanted to teach "by the book." Howard is always able to find your inner talent and abilities, possibly that are even unknown to you...and he can creatively, intuitively and intelligently create a course of action that will leave you amazed! That's why you are reading SO many wonderful comments here about him. If you are lucky enough to get to study with Howard, it will change your life!...and btw, I can now play a mean Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"....Thank you for everything you taught me Howard Richman!

Base is reliable, punctual, and jumps right in when he arrives! He is focused on the student and pushes them (even if shy) with kindness and humor to grow and learn. My daughter is 12 and really enjoying her vocal lessons with him. We think he's great!!
Zach has taught our daughter for 2 years. She has learned more than we can every imagine in this period of time. Not only has she become a more skilled guitar player and vocalist, she has come to love songwriting. Even more important, Zach has coached our daughter through several important events and encouraged her as she stretched herself by musically and personally. By example, he has helped transform her from a simple guitar student taking weekly lessons to a musician eager to do more, try more and stretch beyond what she thought we limits. Even more important to us, Zach has help nurture a self-confidence that can only come from learning from a vibrant, enthusiastic, talented coach and artist. He has forever impacted our daughter's life and will be a part of her story for years to come.
Been taking Guitar/Vocal lessons with Michael for 7 years. Not only is he a skilled Musician and Teacher, but he is also an exemplar and will push you out of your comfort zone.
Brandon is a consummate professional in his music instruction. He teaches his students not just to play the violin, but to enjoy the violin. In just a few months my ten-year-old was reading music and playing scales. A year later, she is playing songs and will soon do her first recital. Brandon is a great music teacher. We highly recommend him.
I am in Toby's flute choir and I look forward to every session when we play. The music is joyful and Toby's expertise makes us sound like professionals. Toby is a wonderful teacher. She is kind, good-natured, patient, and an excellent flutist who is professional and extremely knowledgeable in her understanding of all aspects of music and flute playing. I trust her to make great judgments in the choice of music to play and the instruction that goes with becoming a fine musician. Young and old alike would benefit greatly from Toby's master lessons. Sign up without hesitation!
Fun, good exercise and great music!
I started taking lessons with Toby about 5 months ago. I had been taking lessons for about a year and a half with another teacher after a 30 year hiatus from seriously playing flute. I have made tremendous progress with Toby. She is patient, yet pushes me to improve in all aspects of my playing. She is also teaching me music theory which none of my other flute teachers taught me. My flute lesson is the highlight of my week.
I've always wanted to try piano lessons and came across Shannon Hunt Music online- and decided to give it a try! I have always wanted to learn to play and Shannon is a great place to start. She is fun, warm, easy to learn from, and there is never a dull moment. We are 5 lessons in and I am already feeling at home at the keyboard. Would highly recommend her to anyone!!
My teacher (Leo) makes music fun and is way better than my music teacher at school! He has so many great lessons and experience.
I have known Jennifer Deirmendjian for 12 years now and worked with her musically on solo projects off and on as well as performances in bands. She plays and writes violin beautifully. I have learned so much from her musicianship in rehearsals on a professional level more than anyone I have ever worked with. She is patient, kind and disciplined. I highly recommend her teaching experience as she has been my mentor and inspired me in so many ways!
