Earlier I took music lessons in another city. But moved to LA I decided to continue. For a long time could not decide with the teacher, but when I saw Griffith's ad and listened to his voice, I could not resist! And I made the right choice! Griffith real big talent and a wonderful teacher! We are engaged in more than half a year and I can already see a good result. When I go home after lessons I always in a good mood. Griffith helps me feel more confident! His approach is very wise and calm! How important it is! I advise everyone! And also I want to write a big gratitude to Griffith for everything what he makes for me))) P.S. And also I want to congratulate to Griffith Happy Birthday to and wish success in personal growth, a lot of good projects and the huge health! Thank you for being in my life!Highly recommended!!!

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!
Richard has been a great teacher since I decided to take lessons with him.. Helps me with both my classical and rock styles Has a good feel for the types of music you like and would fit your voice best Knows proper technique/ fundamentals Good training exercises Very accommodating/flexible when I need to reschedule or change the time for certain weeks Comfortable singing 'studio' in his home
Kenshaka is a professional that truly enhances the artist's performance. His dedication to the craft has influenced how I embody characters and push the boundaries of my art. He worked with me intensely for my Cal Arts audition. His preparation left me in a comfortable and in a confident manner for my auditions. With his training I ended up receiving great feedback from the admissions board and I'm looking forward to more positive auditions in the future. I will continue to work with Kenshaka for my NYU, BU, and LMU auditions! If you're an artist who needs fine tuning his attention to detail will undoubtedly take your work to the next level. I would highly recommend Kenshaka!
Excellent piano lessons! I've learned lots of skills in Stephanies piano lessons!
I hired Exceptionally Yours Weddings & Events for dance lessons and as a day-of coordinator for my out-of-town wedding. Crystal handled our dance lessons and preliminary day-off planning, and Storm acted as our day-of coordinator. My now husband and I were very happy with the service we received from both. Crystal is especially knowledgeable and was instrumental in ensuring things were taken care of beforehand, and Storm was wonderful at dealing with the hectic day-of events. I even got compliments from both guests and other vendors on Storm's professionalism and responsiveness! I would highly recommend them, as they great at what they do and are very affordable for the area.
They exceeded our expectations. She is an outstanding teacher. We are still receiving dance lessons. Bob & Carolyn Forston
No one has had any dance lessons yet (!), but she communicates a welcomed professionalism. She responds quickly and has a genuine enthusiasm for what she does.
Working with Joanne has been phenomenal. I cannot imagine having anybody else coach me in the performing arts! She is very wise, charismatic, and beyond talented and experienced. She is so passionate about helping her students learn and even I can see my own improvement since having multiple acting classes with her. If you are looking for a dedicated and brilliant instructor for the performing arts, you have found her!
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.
We started working with Debra about 4 months before our wedding. We wanted to have a "Show-stopping" first dance but both of us had two left feet!! Debra choreographed a Rumba for us that ended up getting us cheers and a standing ovation at our reception!!!! She taught us all the basics from scratch and literally we felt like Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astaire on our wedding day. The routine Debra choreographed was like something from a movie- amazing how she puts it all together. Now that we're married some of our date nights have become nights out dancing- again with steps we are learning in private lessons and group classes. We've learned Salsa and Swing and can't wait for more. DEBRA IS AMAZING- LOOK NO FURTHER- We highly recommend her as a fantastic teacher, motivator, and now a great Friend! 5 Stars. Angie and Mark
Katie and Shawn are the best teachers I have ever had, in any subject. I attended California Institute of the Arts and had some awesome teachers. Still, they are the best. It's the way they handle the fundamentals that set them apart. Think Mr. Miyagi in the Karate Kid, only for dance. I'm a beginner. I was not in the Cal Arts dance school. They instinctively can find your strong and weak points. Instinct, experience, enthusiasm, and hard work, I surmise. Anyway they made it doable for me. I appreciate it. A lifetime of dance for a small fee. We'll worth it.
Shyrelle has been working with my daughter for about a month now. My daughter needed hip hop & jazz lessons so that she could perform in her talent show at summer camp as well as try out for the dance team next year. I've seen her vastly improve in such a short time. Shyrelle implements discipline & fun & is so great with teens. Highly recommended!
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!
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!

I take violin lessons at this school, and so far, they certainly have helped me improve on my skills, and have kept me motivated to continue practicing my instrument. It's a much more enriching experience when your lessons are one on one. I had been taking violin at school for 5 years, but taking lessons taught me that I still had a lot to learn. It's much easier to realize where your struggling and thereby improve on it quicker. I have to recommend this school to anyone seeking ways to improve their musical prowess!
My husband and I wanted to take dance lessons for a wedding we will be attending. Shannon Allen has been great! She has worked with our schedules, been on time, has emailed me with tips and suggestions, and she has made this fun for a "nervous" dancer :)
I have been working with Bonnie for about 6 months now and she has not only helped me vocally but also with the anxieties of performing. I had met up with her for some vocal touch up when visiting from Minnesota and ended up moving out here to continue my lessons with her!
I worked with Mary during a summer Festival of the Arts program for our city of Thousand Oaks. She produced Julius Caesar, and it was an amazing and fun experience for all of the students. Mary is just awesome and because of her expertise and talent I learned to love Shakespeare even more!
I was a voice student at Hollywood Academy of Music for a few years. The instruction I got was worth so much more than what I paid because my teacher went to one of the best contemporary music schools (Musicians Institute) and was a frequent performer. Not only that, but she was fun to be around and naturally a very good teacher. I also took from a few other instructors and the standard was always just as high, even though the instructors had different backgrounds, they were all well-educated and good with people.
