I've had three training sessions with Jonathan Howard. I tested other trainers while with him and found that he was the best. He's very organized in his lesson planning, he has a sharp eye for minor errors in form and execution, and he's challenging while simultaneously supportive. I look forward to continuing my training with him.
I saw Griffith for a short series of about eight lessons in one month last spring in preparation for a huge performance. I'm an experienced pop singer, and have worked with several coaches before who've generally focused the lessons around vocal tone and/or increasing my range. Initially I was confused when these topics were practically ignored under Griffith's study, but he explained to me that both would improve secondarily while we worked primarily on exercises geared towards vocal health. The lessons I took with Griffith were more interesting and fun than any lessons I'd had before, and in the end, I noticed a huge improvement not only in my vocal health, but in my tone & range as well! Griffith's knowledge on general vocal health as well as the history and application of various vocal techniques is extensive, and I was very impressed at the amount which he was able to pass along to me in such a short time. What I found most important was the atmosphere Griffith creates, which is both relaxed and intentional. It was in his studio that I was able to stop listening to and judging my voice while singing, allowing me to rehearse in a safe environment so that I could have the most successful performance possible later on! I highly recommend him to anyone. Thank you Griffith!
Paul Grether is a very talented musician and teacher and a great person. He is wonderful with kids. He is sweet, smart, motivational, caring and funny. My 9 year old son loves him and loves his guitar lessons. He gave up tennis to have two guitar lessons a week. Paul is so affordable to top it off that we are able to afford two one hour lessons a week. I am thrilled to pieces. Anyone would be lucky to have guitar lessons with Paul.
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.
Helped with difficult math classes in high school
We decided to chose Brian for my teenage daughter's beginning guitar lessons due to his willingness to teach her the type of songs that she wanted. Right away he connected with her and her music. He taught her the theory behind playing guitar as well as teaching her the tricks and skills of how to play the guitar. His practices were enjoyable and not just rote. She learned very quickly and therefore stayed excited about learning. Brian was always very complementary and encouraging. Brian also helped us buy useful equipment like a tuner, etc. She always felt safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend Brian as a guitar teacher.
Emo is an awesome artist he is patient and understand and knows when to push you to your very limit. I shopped around for voice coaches for weeks before I settled with Emo anyone reading this don’t look at anyone else. Go see Emo he’s laidback patient and he his lessons are fun.
We are very pleased with the piano instructor that we work with and our sons enjoy the lessons. The recitals are very nice as well.
Very professional, thorough and patient which worked for as a beginner in this kind of fitness. My only con is that I can't do as many lessons as I'd like. Overall a great trainer.
Very to the point and knowledgeable about the instrument. He obviously has studied the guitar for a long time and knowing that makes the lessons comfortable and effective.
Guitar lessons. Music theory. Song transcriptions. A knowledgable and easy going guy who obviously loves what he does. Very patient, he will teach at your pace. He customizes your lessons to suit you as an individual. I leave excited to go home and practice what I have learned. You can't go wrong.
Omar is very professional and patient. My daughter is enjoying her cello lessons.
When I started, I told James I could "play guitar a little" with one section of a song I learned from my friend "Smoke on the water". Actually, I was taught to play it was one string and my thumb! James graciously rebooted my skills with the basics about rhythm and music and started me off with some easy chords, pick and strumming techniques, and using all my fingers. By the end of the first lesson, I could already have some fun with the small jams he taught me. After 9 lessons, I was jammin and loving the guitar. I was able to figure songs out and make up new rifs on my own. James is an excellent teacher and I highly recommend him.
Mike is an experienced musician and teacher. It is a pleasure to take lessons from him. He custom tailors his lessons on my interest and what I would like to learn. He has a wide variety of material to pull from and constants finds easier pieces to build into what I want to learn. Overall, Mike is a great guy, fantastic musician, and i would highly recommend him to anyone thinking to learn any bluegrass or blues.
Linda has a lot of experiences in tutoring. Every time I have questions in grammar or pronunciation during lessons, she clarify for me. I am very satisfied with that and I think it's the fastest way to learn. I would recommend her to my friends who want to improve their English.
My daughter started violin lessons and we couldn't be more pleased with the instruction she is receiving. Ms. Eunji is very patient and thorough. It was easy to schedule classes and the prices are reasonable. It is a plus that they offer lessons on the weekends as well. My daughter also decided to take the robotics and she is super thrilled with what she learning in there.
She seems to understands all age levels and skills or lack there of. She was ready to take me today. She is encouraging.
Brian is a great voice teacher! He is extremely professional and knowledgeable, and takes great care to bring out the best in his student vocally. His keen intuition and sense of humor keep the lessons fun, and his vocal exercises and choice of repertoire continually challenge, strengthen, and fine tune my vocal technique. His dedication to my success as a singer, and his passion for excellence have helped me discover my “true voice” with an increased sense of confidence, purpose, and joy. I heartily give Brian an A+ in all categories!
Mark was very prompt and professional in his response to my project request. He is a very relaxed guy and made me feel very comfortable during my first lesson. We chatted about my goals, which I feel confident of achieving from Mark. During the first lesson he was making "light bulbs" go on for me for stuff i was struggling trying to learn! He made it so simple and fun. His rates are reasonable. He is worth every bit of it in my opinion. I have had three lessons since and I can not wait until the next one! (FYI...i am mid fifties male playing for three years)
Base is reliable, punctual, and jumps right in when he arrives! He is focused on the student and pushes them (even if shy) with kindness and humor to grow and learn. My daughter is 12 and really enjoying her vocal lessons with him. We think he's great!!
After wanting to learn to play the guitar for years, I can’t say enough how grateful I was when I found Davey! He’s incredibly talented, both as a musician and a teacher, and has a unique way of making lessons rewarding from the start. I appreciate the way he values teaching the fundamentals, while also incorporating my musical tastes and keeping the lessons fun. I was blown away by how quickly I learned! He’s truly a gifted teacher and his warm personality and genuine encouragement make you want to play all day. Davey doesn’t just show you how to play an instrument - he teaches you how to be a musician.
