I always wanted to take singing lessons but never had the opportunity and courage. Mindy made everything easy. She is patient, competent and always greeting you with a smile. That's why I decided to take piano lessons as well ;)
Sarah is amazing! I had only had about 4 lessons with Sarah when my friends wanted to go out for karaoke. None of my friends knew I was taking singing lessons and they were surprised. I got so many compliments! I was so happy that even just after a few lessons, I could already take away tools that Sarah taught me and put them into action! I was very lucky to find her. I had searched for awhile for a vocal coach and they were either too expensive, really far or in group setting (which I was too nervous to do being a beginner). I very much enjoy my one-on-one lessons with her. She's so sweet and makes you feel so welcomed and keeps you in good spirits about training your voice! I will definitely be continuing my lessons with her! Thank you Sarah!! :)
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.
Donna helped me to be a better music teacher. As a teacher, I took lessons and often refer to the wonderful notebook Donna put together for me, with tons of ideas and thoughts about music in general. Donna can help musicians, and beginners, to really understand the elements of music, and suggest how to make music your career, or just enjoy music as part of your life skills.
Been singing for many years and surprised to still be learning so much. Juan is quite professional and disciplined. He identifies where you need work and starts with fundamentals. You can't fake it with him; he'll know! I recommend going into it with a clear goal and he'll design a program for you.
I found out about Anna when I saw a promotional video of her online which my friend had posted. In the video I was impressed by the high number of students she had from all over the world of differing ages and singing levels, from beginners to some of Beijing's finest expat live musicians. Right away I noticed the joy which every student seemed to radiate while being taught by Anna and they all had wonderful things to say. Me being a singer myself and always wanting to better my voice decided to give Anna a try. I got into contact with her first by phone and immediately felt her open, warm, friendly vibe and I knew then that I was going to like her very much. And when I met her in real life, that was confirmed to me even more. I had my first class with Anna and by the end of it I was questioning myself as to whether what I achieved really happened. All my years as a singer, I've had difficulty in singing in a quiet , smooth 'mixed head voice' and by the end of the class I was doing it. She had me belting high notes which I thought no longer existed in me. Anna with her fine experience was able to immediately pin point what I was not doing right, correct it and further teach me better and great techniques that I needed to achieve my vocal goals: all with a very encouraging and motivating spirit. I continued classes with her and was so honored when she chose me to be one of her back up singers for her band. Anna herself is not just a great music teacher but an amazing singer too. There is so much I can say but to not make this review into a novel, I'll end here by saying, Thank You Anna so much for believing in me and my voice when I stopped believing in myself and for helping to reignite my passion for singing. <3 Choose Anna as your vocal coach and see for yourself all the great things I have mentioned. :)
I have really enjoyed working with Liz this past year. The techniques that she teaches not only elevate your singing skills, but also improve overall vocal quality and performance. Liz is great about addressing all aspects of the vocal experience, and still making it fun to learn and improve!
Our 13 year old daughter has absolutely loved her singing lessons with Liz over the past year! Liz is consistently bright and positive while advancing our daughter's singing abilities on many levels. We also enjoyed seeing Liz perform in a bilingual musical play for children. We attended with parents, and kids from ages 7 to 17, and we all loved the experience and Liz's impressive singing and acting. Great job, Liz!
She has improved my singing abilities a lot after only a short period of time. The lessons are always fun and productive.
Christine is an amazing teacher. She has patience, wit and technical ability. She tutored my teenage son who had no formal training in voice or musicianship and after six months of training with Christine, he gained entry to the Classical Voice department at SOTA. He enjoys his lessons with her and his self confidence has skyrocketed. Christine designed a course in musicianship and music composition for him, provides him with supplemental entertaining materials and books. I am very impressed by the amount of wisdom, care and information she gives him. She goes above and beyond what I could have ever expected.
Emily was superbly welcoming and nice. She was very understanding of how nervous my daughter felt when she started, and how self conscious my daughter was about her singing. Emily encouraged her and brought up her confidence by a lot. My daughter loves going to the lessons and enjoys singing a lot nowadays. I would recommend Emily to people of all ages and ability.
I'm a beginner to guitar, having played a little piano and drums before. Been working with Chris for a few weeks now and it has been a blast. He's a talented musician who is connected to the music scene. I wanted a guitar teacher who was connected to the local music scene, and so I've really enjoyed working with Chris and even going to see his band perform. I also love how Chris walks through songs and is able to write out the tabs and chords on the fly, and then on top of that show me multiple ways of playing the same song. Highly recommend.
Alivia is a fantastic teacher. She tailors the lessons to my daughters voice and ability while also encouraging her to push herself. She incorporates theory and performance into the lesson plan. She is a fantastic teacher.
Jen gave me voice lessons in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Due to time constraints, we were only able to do 5 or so lessons, but she was extremely professional and found a song that covered a wide range for me to work on. She has a great balance of being encouraging and complementing what I did right while also giving effective feedback on what I needed to improve. Through our lessons my confidence in singing improved to the point that I performed the piece we worked on with some friends. I'm certain that I would have learned even more and improved as a singer if I'd continued working with Jen. I chose to stop because I didn't have time for this with my work schedule. Jen will help you grow the strength and clarity of your voice, and, in so doing, you'll grow in confidence as well (at least, I did). Definitely recommended!
Natalie has been fantastic to work with! Her instruction through exercises, general tips/suggestions, and specific ideas when working on a particular song has all been stellar and on point throughout my work with her. I feel like I have improved dramatically over the course of our lessons, and my band members have made several comments about my improvement as well. She has an uncanny knack for knowing what I am doing with my breath, diaphragm, throat, mouth, etc., and being able to suggest just the right adjustments to make things sound better and more comfortable to sing. Natalie is a wonderful person, too, very encouraging, supportive, and respectful. I highly, highly recommend her!!
Even as a professional singer who has made appearances on America's Got Talent, The Singoff, and X-Factor, and who has performed as a Backup Singer for Justin Bieber, Usher, and Mary J Blige, I believe there is always room for improvement. Ross has been an amazing vocal instructor for me. I've worked with Ross for over two years, and he has helped open up my voice, tone and range. Singing as a baritone/bass most of my life, Ross was the first instructor to tell me that I was a tenor. Previous to Ross' instruction, singing any note above a middle F meant either yelling or transitioning to falsetto. Once I started working with Ross, I was able to sing an F# comfortably, then a G, then a G#. And it hasn't stopped. Ross uses classical technique, exercises, and visualization to help open up your voice. In addition, to Ross' technical expertise, he is also very easy to work with. He has a welcoming and comedic personality that makes every lesson fun. I would highly recommend Ross as a vocal instructor for singers at any level in their career.

Mike is one of the best drummers I've ever played with. Great feel, and he's also an excellent vocalist who can sing lead or backgrounds while drumming flawlessly.
I've been taking singing lessons with Cherie for about a year. I've always wanted to perform at open mics and maybe start a band but I knew I had some work to do before feeling confident. So I started singing lessons with Cherie to help prepare me for performance but we also spent a lot of time growing my voice. I realized I had a much bigger range than I'd thought. BTW - I'm also a beginner guitarist and we sometimes have guitar lessons too. She's a great guitarist and singer. So I really feel like she's the best out there for that type of work. If you want to not only work on your voice but learn how to perform and have a fun time in general - I'd book Cherie for lessons. She's a pro :-)
Wendy brings a wealth of knowledge about music and singing, combines it with enthusiasm, genuine caring, and experience, and channels it all into her teaching. Lessons are always fun, engaging, educational, and tailored to the student's unique voice and abilities. I'd recommend Wendy to any aspiring singer of any age without reservation. - Horst, San Rafael, CA
I took voice lessons with Sarah for quite a long time. I was barely trained in jazz vocals. Sarah is a very lovable, ambitious person. Great teacher. She always encouraged me and was very knowledgeable about all things singing. :) I grew so much through our lessons and I still practice her vocal techniques to this day.

I've been in my business for many years, and I stand out because hardly any of the teachers I have worked with or heard results from, knew what it meant to truly sing properly.
