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!

We have a child diagnosed with slight autism. We decided to get a private teacher at home due to the experience of a teacher bullying him in a music school located in Chino. Mr. Garcia has all the patience in teaching our son and he knows how to adjust his teaching lessons with him. Our son is always excited to get music lessons with him. Mr. Garcia is also teaching our 18 y/o daughter guitar. And she is always happy and contented with his teaching techniques. Thank you for doing a great job with my children.

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.

The slow progression at school was the reason why I decided to put may daughter up with a private teacher, whom Linda seems to be the right fit. My daughter was never corrected for her fingering while playing the cello at school, until Linda did so. It took my daughter 6 months just to play 1 piece of music at school, let alone reading the music sheet for the cello comfortably. And she was the only cello student at school too! Linda is not only very knowledgeable musically, but also very talented as she plays many different instruments. Overall, very productive 1st class with Linda.

Zeth is really amazing with my son. He learned so much even within the first few sessions. And my son looks forward to every lesson. He is teaching him how to read music, how to hear the notes, how to keep rhythm, and how to play songs he likes. I can’t recommemd him more highly.

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!

Both of my children have been taking lessons with Rachel for the past 3 years and she's been awesome! My daughter takes singing lessons and my son has been taking saxophone lessons, and they both love it! She's really professional and fun to work with. It's also been nice that she teaches a lot of instruments so we can have one teacher come to the house to teach both of the kids one after the other. I couldn't recommend her enough!

Miss Marguerite is a great piano teacher. She approaches her music lessons through a variety of techniques and methods that always keeps our daughter engaged. She teaches her music theory, music appreciation, rhythm, play by ear and the ability to read music. She differentiates the needs of each of her students and taps into their styles and preferences. Our daughter has learned a lot under her tutelage.

Jason is an amazing teacher. He knows what a student wants and figures out where exactly a student is at. I have had only two sessions yet, but I can sense that he is a proper teacher if you want to be an individual musician because I bet he knows most of the basic to intermediate level of music theories. Also he is capable of teaching DAWs. And the most important ability for tutors that I think of is that they should be able to teach students constantly in the students' timetable. What I mean by that is all the students have different abilities on learning materials, and I believe that Jason is well capable of setting that timetable for their students. I really recommend to take Jason's lessons to the people who are just like me, willing to learn some music composition with your instrument and with DAWs back and forth.

Been awesome working with Jason! I've always had an interest in becoming a better musician, but the routine of picking up books that are too complex to fully grasp was always daunting. He's helped tremendously with simple breakdowns and in-depth analysis of music theory and composition, as well as technique and application. I really look forward, not only to the future sessions, but the homework I'm assigned to perfect my craft.🤘

I am an older first time piano student. Kevin took the time to understand why I was interested in learning the piano and his lessons were tailored to my capabilities and desires and were very supportive. The lessons were productive and enjoyable. I highly recommend him as a teacher for any age student. -Shanta

I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!

I used Jerry Danielsen's BSS for my debut album. The man was amazing. He played all the instruments and made his technical skills available, all for the same price. I would have paid 4-5 times more for any other studio. I have received excellent reviews on the work that Jerry did on my album. Plans for my second album are being made and my Executive Director is insisting that we return to Jerry's studio as soon as he is available. One more note: If you are new at this and want to work with someone who knows the business and will help you turn your 'songs' into 'music' Jerry is your man! He not only helped me arrange my tunes, but, he also, added bridges and other nice touches that made my songs better than I ever thought possible. Most of the time, after the song was recorded, I would say "That's exactly how I heard it in my head." Pretty cool. The man is a genuine genius!
