If you're an experienced singer looking to hone your skills, check out Griffith's other reviews -- I'm here to vouch for Griffith's ability to teach beginners. In fact, I came to Griffith having never sung a note in my life. Before taking lessons with Griffith, I was convinced that I simply didn't have "the knack." I just flat out couldn't sing. But my job brought me to Los Angeles for a few months, and in a surge of optimism, I signed up for singing lessons. All of Griffith's reviews were from experienced singers, but he assured me that he was down for teaching beginners. And calling myself a beginner was rather generous... Yet, in the brief two months I was in LA, I learned more about singing than I ever thought I could. I'm by no means a professional now, but I could probably perform in front of good friends or family with fairly positive results. And believe me, that's a monumental improvement. During my time with him, Griffith was friendly, professional, fun, and, most importantly, successful. He gave me good feedback during lessons and sent me home with useful exercises every time. Of course, I have literally zero other instructors to compare him to, but I can say with confidence that I would recommend Griffith for anyone looking to find their voice!
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!
New to vocal lessons my goal was to learn about my voice and the skills necessary to sing the genre of music relative to me, I struck gold when I found Richard. Richard's expertise and experience has allowed me to find my voice and understand how to use it. I feel much more confident about singing after each lesson, with Richard I'm always on my way to reaching my goals. Great coach great person!
Dr. Stephanie is great! I've only been taking singing lessons with her for almost 2 months now, and I feel like i've learned so much. I came in with absolutely zero experience in singing and she was very patient with me learning from scratch. I'm naturally a very self conscious person and she made me feel very comfortable immediately. I've already started to see and feel improvement in my voice. She's also just a very awesome person in general, she's super nice and encouraging and makes you excited to come back for the next lesson.
I have had three lessons with Rickie so far and she has completely changed the way I approach singing. She breaks down the fundamentals and gives you a solid foundation on which you can continuously expand. She is incredibly encouraging and is amazing to work with. I have found my vocal coach. :)
We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!
James is an excellent guitarist. It was a pleasure taking lessons from him at Peaceland Music. I learned a lot, improved my playing, and had a great time!
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 worked with Kevin for over 2 years during my time at AMDA Los Angeles, and would have worked with him for the entire 3 years that I was there if I had to option to. Kevin is an extremely knowledgable vocal coach and it was an extremely beneficial experience. In vocal lessons, sometimes the simplest concepts are the hardest only because they were communicated in a confusing way, but Kevin taught his lessons in very relatable terms and made sure I understood exactly what he meant before we moved on. He also paid attention to my strengths and weaknesses, catering to each equally. For example, he knew that I learned music very quickly and kept me motivated by giving me new songs to work on, while still focusing on my vocal weaknesses and never getting impatient if I was having difficulty. It was a true honor to work with such a patient, caring and knowledgable vocal coach, and if I ever come back to LA, I will be contacting him for more lessons. He was my voice teacher as well as my mentor during school, and I'd recommend him to anyone seeking a voice teacher.
I've had my first lesson with Paul and I am very excited to continue taking lessons from him. In our first lesson he identified areas for me to focus on and exercises to practice. I am already seeing my singing improve!
By far the most amazing vocal lessons ever. Immediate success, Radina is a very friendly teacher. Great techniques and very well explained, for me as a beginner exactly what I was looking for! I would recommend one full lesson a week.
Mia is an exceptional vocal instructor. I am a beginner singer. It is unbelievable to see how my vocal skills have improved with just a few private singing lessons. She is patient and makes the student feel comfortable. I couldn't be in better hands! From Beginners to Pros I highly recommend Singing Studio LA.
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!

Bonnie has truly transformed my voice. She coached me through insane vocal tension and in no time sent me off to become a singer. Helping me to apply for competitions and schools throughout my time with her. I have seen her teach all different voice types and everyone who takes lessons has a positive, productive experience. I highly recommend her to any singer. Beginner or professional.
The only two hiring have been great, the current one is awesome, Marie seems very cooperative and genuine. My daughter love's her. And now from wanting first, singing lessons, also wants to learn the piano as well
The first time I got guitar lessons from Michael I learned the beginner guitar chords right away and he knew what pace to go at. He knows where your weaknesses and strengths are and teaches in a way that doesn't feel rushed. He's been my teacher for a few months now and it's always a blast!
Great teacher AND a funny, insightful man. No better person to spend an hour with. For years he has made lessons fun for my young son and his ole dad.
I always enjoy our French lessons!
My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.
Michael is LA’s best kept secret. My voice was starting to give out trying to record an album when my producer suggested I go see Michael. I've had lessons before that weren't helpful, but I was desperate and decided to give it a try. Next I know, the guy's got me on the floor doing stretches and bending over doing breathing exercises. I'm thinking why am I not singing? Give me an exercise at least! So once I'm back in the studio, my voice tiring out, my producer asks me what Michael said, so I showed him...well, it worked! My voice opened back up and I was able to get through the entire recording session. Michael understood what I needed better than I did.
Felice cane to help me surprise my wife for a singing lesson ‘date night’. My wife and I were nervous about singing in front of someone else, but Felice quickly made us feel at ease and comfortable to explore our voices. She was incredibly astute and made immediate observations and adjustments to prove that even people like us can learn to sing! I knew 10 minutes into our lesson that we would be calling Felice back for more...
