Michelle is a wonderful teacher who brings out the best in her students and pushes them to continuously refine their skills. We have been taking voice and piano lessons with her for about a year and really enjoy her.
I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.
Juan Carlos is such a great teacher. He is helping my son learn piano and teaching him how to use his voice properly. He is patient, kind, and clear when teaching my 12 year old who is not very confident yet with his singing. My son is learning how to listen and match pitch. Juan Carlos always finds a teaching approach to help my son understand what to do. I definitely recommend Juan Carlos! Melanie Hernandez
Welcoming, funny, patient and professional. Ken's style of teaching is exactly what I was looking for. Being a shy person I was hesitant to start vocal lessons. I just had my second lesson and I can't wait until next week. Great teacher!
I have been taking voice lessons with Marla Volovna for 7 months now. In this short time I have progressed faster than I ever had before, in vocal technique as well as in interpretation and musicianship. Marla is very demanding, very honest and very encouraging a killer combo for success. And Marlas commitment to her students progress really extends beyond the weekly lesson, with regular communication of tips to improve technique, interpretation, links to performances, documentaries, archives, etc I highly recommend Volovna Vocal Studio.
Liz does an amazing job of pinpointing areas that need work in the voice. She's also given me several exercises that have really helped to develop my voice further. Super great teacher with a ton of good experience! Exactly what I needed
My daughter recently started doing piano lessons with Lynn and she just loves it. She loves Lynn and thinks she is so nice. I sat in on her first session and I learned so much just from watching in the background. Lynn is an outstanding piano teacher and I recommend her for anyone interested in piano or voice lessons.
Wow, Ann has been great! I've never taken any voice lessons before, and in fact, I'm a terrible singer! The reason why I wanted to take lessons was because I've always wanted to be able to sing at least one song decently. So, I was nervous going to my first lesson with a professional voice coach. She was very friendly, and put me at ease immediately. She casually taught me about the basics, and asked me a lot of questions to get to know me. Once she realized I had no prior experience, she got right to work! She made the lessons fun, but also full of new things to learn. I've only had a couple of lessons so far, but I'm already noticing a big difference!!! And I'm an absolute beginner! Sometimes she sings for me to show me techniques, and she blows me away with her singing! I can imagine that even professional singers would get a lot out of taking lessons from her! She notices even the tiniest of details about your voice and makes note and suggests ways to improve! I definitely recommend!
I can't say enough good things about working with Patricia. She is always on time, always professional, incredibly knowledegeable, and always ready for our lessons. I have grown tremendously since I started working with her! I've actually started taking both voice and piano lessons from her because she is that good. She is classically trained and knows her stuff so well and can explain it so well that even a 5 year old could understand it.
Sarah participated in the St. John's choir and also took private vocal lessons with Emily to improve her singing and confidence. We found Emily to be fun, responsible, engaging, and we saw great improvements in Sarah's abilities during her time with Emily. Additionally, I will emphasize that Emily has great skill in working with a variety of personalities, including expert skills in working with special needs kids.
I took voice and piano lessons with Joann. She was very encouraging. She believed in me and pushed me just enough to achieve my goals. Super thankful I got to work with her.
I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.
Daniel has been an excellent voice coach to my daughter. I love the structure he implements on his lessons and his patience of teaching my 9 year old. He continuously motivates, and guides her while learning her favorite songs and explains the importance of practicing during the week to gain full advantage of the voice lessons. I strongly recommend his lessons, he's very talented and experienced person.
My lessons with Miriam are awesome! She's not just teaching me about singing or how to use my voice but also everything around it like posture and emotions. She helps and encourages me to push my limit, expanding my vocal range. I'm really enjoying my lesson with her and always looking forward to our next session!
Before I came to Mark I had studied with four singing teachers in my ten years of classical and musical theatre training. I was a music scholar at high school in London and received free vocal tuition from well established singers. However, I had stopped developing because I lacked the foundation of a good technique. I had been told so many contrasting ideas as to how to breathe, support from the diaphragm, and approach high pitches that I did not know how best to progress.. When I arrived in San Francisco I found Mark, and was charmed by his distinctive studio, filled with photos of past performances and family. He immediately appeared to me an honest, and intelligent teacher. He explained to me that his method was very technical and was grounded in an understanding of the physicality of singing - which muscles are being used, how to raise the tongue for maximum acoustics. I having been learning with Mark for almost 8 months and every lesson I think, 'this man has got to be a genius'. His teaching is EXCELLENT. Although it is very different to what singers may be used to, he systematically combs through all you need to know in order to build a strong voice in any style of singing. I have extended my range, developed a warmer, fuller tone, and found that I can make operatic resonance. He is an EMPOWERING teacher, acutely aware of your perspective, and constantly speaking your 'language' so that you may develop. Not only have I found him to be an inspiring teacher, but also a friend and in some cases a life mentor. I feel I have found my singing teacher, and hope to work with him regardless of where I am in the world. Kayla
I've just had one lesson so far, which was amazing. I'm just starting to learn music and singing, and Emily seems like the perfect teacher for a beginner like me. I'm really excited to continue learning with Emily.
Chris Lee and the East Bay music academy have been an enormous influence on my playing and my life. Chris is a highly organized, professional teacher as well as a phenomenal player and even more astounding composer/theoretician. His approach to music theory, while staggeringly comprehensive, is completely accessible, and I found that his conception of theory is in many instances more concise, elegant, logical, and practical than that presented in college theory courses. Moreover, the open-minded, experimental attitude which he brings to every aspect of his instruction, from theory to technique, has taught me how to grow continually as a musician long after I stopped taking lessons, and to be effective as my own teacher. Chris Lee transformed me from a clueless teenager into a professional musician, and I have no doubt that he can do the same for any earnest student.
Leah Diamond is a loving and dedicated mentor. Her lessons are highly personalized and leave me with no doubts that she is giving me her full attention. I always feel safe to be emotionally vulnerable, a feeling that I have come to learn is a key part of growing as an actor. Although she focuses a lot on the more abstract concepts of becoming a good actor, Leah is also very knowledgeable when it comes to the concrete aspects of the business. She aided me in building a better resume and helped me connect to networks where I can market myself in order to work and gain experience. She is extremely adept at fostering growth through personal exploration, creativity, and imagination. I am a better and more confident performer thanks to Leah!
I have experimented with music (guitar and harmonica) for a number of years without any direction or form and I'm so blessed to have found Cherie. She creates a relaxing environment where I can focus and understand basic music theory, she makes it comprehensive which others have not been able to do up to this point. And I have now expanded into a new area in my music lessons with voice training. Each lesson gives me more confidence and assurance in my playing and singing. I highly recommend Cherie. I am also impressed with her as a performer and feel honored to have as my musical guru.

I took lessons with Angel for a year in 2010 in Los Angeles, He was recommended to me by a friend. I hired him to get ready for an audition for a band I wanted to be a part of, I didn’t get in but I actually ended up putting my own band together and we still going at it today. Angel advice and dedication to me as a voice student is something I will never forget and always be thankful for. You need to come back to LA, or maybe I should move to SF. ;)
I had a great experience learning with Noelle. It was my first time ever taking any kind of singing lessons - she was very encouraging and helped a lot in improving my confidence with singing. She is also very meticulous and structured which I liked about her approach.
