I am very glad to have taken a trial lesson with Griffith. He is very knowledgeable about singing. I have studied classical singing for five years at the university, and I can tell you that Griffith's lessons are definitely on point. He reminded me of the key lessons I learned at the university, but had in part forgotten with time. Keys such as to always breathe and support the voice, to phonate as purely and naturally as possible, and to avoid all negative tongue action. His lesson reminded me of what my voice lessons were like with my former Prof, who had a doctorate in music. Interested in singing? Give Griffith a call. You won't be disappointed!

I've been taking voice lessons with Griff for about 4 months now, and it's been amazing! I already feel more confident about my voice and he's helped me learn to open up my voice more and sing with more resonance. He's a great, hilarious, and awesome teacher and knows how to put you at ease (especially since I was very nervous at the start). Looking forward to continuing my lessons and seeing where my voice can go! Thanks for everything Griffmeister! :)

I'm a songwriter that wanted to learn how to sing my own music. I've attempted to sing off and on for many years, but never really felt confident in my abilities. In as few as four weeks Richard not only made me more confident, but he has also greatly improved my voice. The reaction of my band-mates at the first rehearsal after several voice lessons was proof enough! Richard is great and he is a pleasure to work with.

Richard is one of the best, nicest, talented and knowledgeable teachers and people I've had the pleasure of working with. He has helped me improve vocally, believe in myself, trust my talent - all this after only 2 lessons! My lesson is the highlight of my week! I can't wait to see where my lessons and voice will take me!

Richard is an excellent teacher! My fear of hitting a high note is gone after a few lessons from him. Also, my range and tone greatly improved under his tutelage. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to take voice lessons.

I requested singing lessons and received 6 quotes rangers big from $36/hr to $100/hr. I eliminated 3 of them just based on the message they wrote to me and their reviews or lack there of. My passion is indie rock and Jan does not fit the profile of a rocker and she was vocally trained as an opera singer. However, her reviews were positive, she was priced in the middle, her message to me was pertinent and once I called and spoke to her I was sold. I didn't bother contacting the other two quotes I was interested in. Needless to say, my hunch was right and I had my first lesson last week. It went incredibly well. She amazed me. I am a song writer wanting to improve my vocals so I can work indecent from hiring a singer. I showed he some of my recorded originals and within seconds she knew what I had to improve to make my voice fit the song better. We changed the key a whole step, she had me pronounce some of the words differently and she gave input in to what could improve for the song instrumentally. She started showing me current artists and what I could take from their particular songs to inspire some rhythmic changes. she had suggestions on where to go and present my music to sale for commercial/tv/advertising. She had big picture advice on where to focus my energies. I couldn't believe what we packed in to a one hour rehearsal. She sat at her piano and taught me vocal exercises and explained to me how I could improve on them with what I call tricks to break certain bad habits I have formed. I can't wait to see her next week. She can totally rock!!!

When I came to Jan, I had damaged my voice with another coach with only 2 weeks to my next show. I was feeling really hurt and my voice had been hoarse for 6 days due to the last lesson I took. Jan gave me a warm up plan for my voice that would allow me to practice without risking further damage to my vocal cords. After following her prescription, I could feel my voice starting to respond. After 3 lessons my voice is returning to health and sounding sweeter again. I still have one more lesson before show time. I have no doubt all is and will be well for me on that stage. Yay! I'm so grateful to have found you.

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!

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.

Dr Stephanie is a wonderful, highly experienced teacher, who focuses on the fundamentals of voice and breathing and also individual voice style and quality. She is supportive, flexible with my difficult schedule, and always fun to work with! I would highly recommend her, especially to those looking for a more academic approach to voice lessons and those interested in classical and musical theater training.

Best voice classes ever! I've just started taking classes with Dr. Stephanie a few weeks ago, and am already seeing great improvements. She has developed incredibly effective practicing strategies, and you could really see the change once you start using them. Classes take place in her nice and cozy studio, in a quiet and relaxing environment.

I wouldn't be the artist I am today, if not for Kenshaka Ali. The time I spent studying with him was invaluable. His unique approach, opened my eyes, and I could see clearly for the first time. He help liberate me from my fears, by creating a safe environment, allowing me to look inward, find my light and let it shine. He is more than a coach, a teacher. He is a mentor. The Japanese word Sensei means "one who has gone before." He bestows upon you his vast knowledge and experience. Providing you with lessons that will stay with you your entire life. If not for him I would never have had the confidence and ability to write, direct and produce my own play, which I have now turned into a web series. I was very blessed to have studied with a master of the craft.

Wow! One session already with him and I was truly enlightened! His tools are methodical and easy to apply. He's quite intuitive and will tune into your nature to allow you freedom to explore. He renders a promising support of your choices and offers an honest view of clarity for other ways. Unlike my previous brutal acting classes, this one on one may just work for me.

Kenshaka gave me acting lessons via video chat which is already a difficult task, but he was a great guide and mentor regardless of those obstacles. He is also very flexible and willing to be available for help outside of the scheduled lesson times. Excellent teacher and I would recommend him to others!

If you are looking for private music lessons at a convenient price...you have found the right place. Instructors and staff are very friendly. Instructor goes out of his way to help you choose your instrument if you are new to music, this avoids expending extra funds on something you do not need. My son looks forward to the next lesson every time and not mention the improvememt on my son's guitar playing. I highly recommend Peaceland Music...no regrets so far!

After almost about... I dunno, what is it, 3 or 4 years of talking Amazing Voice Lessons? Anyway, after about that many years or so, I gotta say that these lessons really HAVE improved my singing a lot. Not only has it helped my singing and performance on stage, but it's also helped my self-esteem and enabled me to relax and just let my hair down. I hope to keep continuing these lessons for as long as I can because trust me, AVL is a gift that just keeps on giving.

For the vocal lessons, I learned how to use my diaphragm, also I’m learning different styles of singing with my voice. I can now use my voice to go to alto and to mezzo soprano to soprano. I always try to practice my vocal exercises she gives me and the songs that we work on in the lessons. The exercizes are helping my technique improve daily. April is a teacher that pushes you to practice and work hard to be a strong singer. She pushes me but I’m improving at the same time. I feel she wants me to be successful as a singer. She makes me feel like I can do it!

April has helped me immensely for the short months we've worked together. She has made me the singer that I have always wanted to be.

If you need voice training you should definitely consider April! She's the best!!

I have the highest praise for Tracy! Having worked with many coaches in LA and else where I can truly say she has been the best and most thorough educator in the VO Biz I've ever worked with. Because she is a working voice actor herself she is on top of the trends, mainstays and understands what is needed to have a viable VO career. Tracy guided me through the in's and outs of the biz and showed me the tools needed to succeed. Most importantly she has boosted my confidence in regard to my own talents and abilities. I am indebted to Tracy for helping me to realize dream.

As many times as I've worked with other coaches, and there have been many, no one has matched the thorough understanding of the voice over business. As a working voice over artist herself, Tracy stays on top of the current trends and mainstays while guiding you through the necessary work needed to get you on top of your VO game. Tracy is so easy to work with. Most importantly she has boosted my confidence in my abilities to realize my goals even beyond what I thought was possible. I can't recommend Tracy enough. She's a gem!

Joanne has played a significant role in the development of my daughter's acting career. Her first experience was being cast in a theater production in Hollywood under Joanne's direction at the age of 5. Since that time, my daughter has performed in multiple theater shows, attended private acting classes, workshops, and online sessions (through Skype) for audition preparation with Joanne. My daughter is now 12 years old and has just been offered a main supporting role in a movie that will begin filming in early 2017. Joanne is an integral part of the fun, exciting, emotional, and exhausting road that has led us to this juncture. I highly recommend Joanne to work with your aspiring actor or actress!

Joanne is a very intuitive coach. As a beginner adult, I was nervous and unsure of my abilities. Joanne took the time to assess my skill level and created a curriculum and acting exercises tailored to fit me! I've learned it's okay to be nervous, it's okay to let go and have fun. I am actually having fun taking Skype lessons and I am learning how to be authentic and real. Joanne keeps in touch between lessons to send me articles to read that will help me as well as answering questions. I couldn't be happier with my choice to hire Joanne. I'm very grateful.

I would recommend her lessons very highly to any actor looking to challenge and embrace the hidden parts of themselves.

I absolutely love working with Paul! I felt comfortable with him from the very first lesson, and that’s coming from someone who doesn’t respond well when interacting with strangers. He’s always on time with his lessons, communicates with me, and always asks me for my feedback with the different techniques that we try so that he can understand how the lesson is being perceived from my end, as well as if it’s working. He really knows his stuff and is very informative on proper singing techniques and strategies, and knows what he wants to focus on in terms of bettering the student’s vocal abilities. Awesome vocal coach. Definitely a 10/10 recommendation

Going into my lessons with Paul, I had no idea what to expect. I'd never had voice lessons before and my voice had been an area of insecurity for me my whole life. Thankfully, Paul coaches in a way that put me,a novice, at great ease. Even after just two lessons with Paul, my acting coach noticed a difference in my vocal quality. I was able to realize how I had developed a habit of incorrect breathing and posture and how it was effecting my every day life. He not only provided me with greater skill as a performer, but with better overall habits for speaking and carrying myself in day to day life.

If you havent had voice lessons yet and you want to give it a try and gain knowledge, confidence and everything you need to know to become familiar with your voice you need to shedule a lesson with Mariela! Mariela is not only a professional and well rounded singer, she also is an incredible, eclectic Songwriter and she inspired and helped me to finish songs with her creative mind. I used to have difficulties with my singing technique and only in a couple of months I have been able to sing songs I never dared to sing before! Singing is fun now! Its not something I need to be scared of or that anyone could take from me. My next step is that I want to learn how to accompany myself on the piano and since Mariela teaches piano too I cant wait to learn her skills. So go and take lessons with her! and listen to her music online, here is the link https://www.facebook.com/marieemusica?fref=ts Mariela thank you so much for the happiness you brought into my life! :) Stefanie

I would like to share my very strong endorsement of Bonnie Kousoulakis. As a classically-trained vocalist who has studied at both Brigham Young University and in the Oregon State University music program, I have had the opportunity to work with a number of different vocal instructors over the years. I can say without hesitation that none have helped me in to realize my potential as a classical vocalist more than Ms. Kousoulakis. Her understanding of vocal technique and ability to help her students achieve their fullest potential, especially for the male voice, is in my experience, unparalleled. Before I began studying with Ms. Kousoulakis about 15 months ago, I was merely a singer with potential, much of which had been untapped. I lacked confidence in myself and had not developed a strong understanding of exactly how to use my instrument to its fullest potential. However, with the assistance of Ms. Kousoulakis, I have been able to achieve a quality of singing and a belief in myself that has led me to give serious consideration to pursuing a full-time professional career for the first time since I left college more than a decade ago. My experiences as her student, combined with an understanding of her own education, professional background in opera and her passion for the art, give me great confidence in recommending her.

June is an incredible asset to the Los Angeles acting community. She is bold, brave, and experienced. Her life is a true testament to the ART of acting, in craft and in deed. June routinely quotes the likes of Adler and Meisner, but even more astounding is the fact that she studied first hand with the great Uta Hagen. June currently works with the Adler Academy in Hollywood, she also teaches wonderful private lessons in her home. She is a gift to us all and I highly recommend working with her on scene study and/or audition coaching, offered at a VERY reasonable rate. She makes you feel safe, and excited, like you can say anything and everything and never be judged for it. It's a beautiful thing to be passionate about acting again. Thank you June.
