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've been working with Jan for over a year and a half and she has helped me immensely in progressing in my music career. She is truly a professional songwriter, voice coach, and producer. She also teaches classes in Acting for Singers which I have taken. She creates a fun and supportive atmosphere in her private lessons as well as her classes which makes attending them truly enjoyable. She always focuses in on what I need to learn and does it in a very positive way. Anyone who wants to develop as a singer would be really lucky to have the opportunity to study under her and to have her guidance.
My experience has been very good.. At first I came in just wanting to sing songs but after taking a few weeks of lessons I have learnt so much more than I was expecting and really learned how to use my voice in the correct way!
Stephanie is a very patient and pleasant teacher. My son now looks forward to his piano lessons and is actually enjoying them. She is a great choice if you are looking for someone who makes teaching fun.
We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!
James is an excellent guitarist. It was a pleasure taking lessons from him at Peaceland Music. I learned a lot, improved my playing, and had a great time!
Hi Marquita! I just wanted to thank you. I gave my first lecture since being coached by you with my breathing and speech. It went wonderfully! My voice didnt get froggy, I didnt cough or have to clear my throat, I remembered to take more time between sentences and breath more from my diaphragm. It went so well, I didnt even remember to be nervous or anxious about those things. I spoke for an hour - and it felt really good to concentrate on just speaking from my heart. I know I didnt spend a lot of time with you, but your homework is so valuable to me. I practice your lessons all the time, in little spurts, throughout the day and it paid off. Thank you thank you �� Big hug - Alison
I met Howard in1990, and had NOT played the piano for over 25 years! When I was 7-8 years old, I started my first lessons. I was, not at all knowing - BUT - I was a child prodigy! At 12, I asked my parents to let me go to Juillard! I didn't even know, back then, that everyone auditions to get into this World-REKNOWNED school! I would've gotten in! My Mother, who won all interactions with my Dad - said NO! For me - she said "Maybe for college!" To make a REALLY LONG story shorter - drugs & The 60s - GOT ME! In 1990, when Howard came into my life, I was already 7 yrs, clean & sober! AND - I had a hole in my heart, as my own music, was missing! My 1st lesson with Howard was EXTRA ORDINARY! I cried! I could NOT play a note! After awhile, that same lesson, Howard just told me to close my eyes, with my hands on the piano, and play anything! I DID! My embarrassment turned into tears of joy! After 1-2 yrs later - thinking of myself still, as a beginner (again), Howard asked me what I thought of - becoming a piano teacher! I didn't understand & I had NO degrees! Howard told me I only needed a degree to teach in Public Schools! I had, NEVER - in my life, allowed someone else to help me create my own path! BUT - watching Howard, teaching me & others - he was ALWAYS SMILING! I thought that, just MAYBE - I could be smiling too, AND - get paid for that too?!? Howard took a photo of me, helped me word a flyer, AND - actually, got me my very 1st student! I was TERRIFIED! Howard told me - just show up & you will know JUST WHAT TO DO! He even, because of my deep fear - told me that IF I could not show up - DON'T! Within 6 months of waitressing & a few piano students, AGAIN! Here comes Howard! A fellow piano teacher/friend - who had 30 students - found the love of HER life, was moving out-of-state & asked Howard what to do with her business!?! He told her to give it to D.J. (ME!) We met for lunch, & within 1 week, I was a full-time piano teacher!!!!! You want a referral? GO SEE HOWARD! 😊 XoX ❤️ There is no one - BETTER!!!!!
Not only a voice teacher, or a music instructor, but, "a guide". Dena Murray is a spiritual guide, an expert of your own instrument, called "voice". I've been a professional singer so I've met other "voice teachers", but, leaving the record studio, it was always the same questions : alone with my own voice habits, my own daily routine... knowing nothing about who my voice is, not so comfortable and friendly with it. Then, I've met "Voice Yogi" Dena Murray... No matter my travels (Los Angeles, Paris, ...), she made me find my real voice (by lessons in West Hollywood, or by Skype, or with her books...). Yes, I did found my real voice because of Dena Murray ! And it is such a spiritual and beautiful trip ! Grateful.
Bonnie is fantastic! Really understands the male voice. Looking forward to continuing to work with her.
Brian was the best vocal teacher I have ever had. He was professional yet personable, and the tools he gave me improved my vocals way beyond my expectations. I highly recommend taking lessons from him if you want to take your vocal performance to the next level.
Mr Anthony does a wonderful job giving my 9 year old lessons. He is always on time and very respectful. After just two lessons I am already impressed with what my son has learned. I'm excited to see what Mr Anthony teaches my son in the coming months.
Cody was very prompt in his response and made himself available so my son could take lessons. He was very polite and patient with my son. We look forward to seeing our son's progress with Cody's instructor.
Michael has been our guitar and voice teacher for several years and is excellent. Our son started playing and taking lessons when he was seven years old. From the beginning, Michael knew how to teach in a way that was fun and effective. He is talented, motivating, reliable and truly loves what he does.
Joey is a fantastic and understanding teacher. He had me singing in a way I didn't realize was possible. I also am taking piano lessons from him, and Joey understands my goals and style. A+
My children loved their Monday lessons with Davey! He made learning a true joy for them and they couldn’t wait to show me all they learned. While we were going through a divorce, Davey brought with his lessons an escape for my girls to feel confident and happy through music. We will miss him! Thanks Davey!
If you want singing lessons from someone who is confident and you are not afraid to try singing with a different approach, you definitely will want to have lessons from Michael Jones.
I always enjoy our French lessons!
I've always wanted to try piano lessons and came across Shannon Hunt Music online- and decided to give it a try! I have always wanted to learn to play and Shannon is a great place to start. She is fun, warm, easy to learn from, and there is never a dull moment. We are 5 lessons in and I am already feeling at home at the keyboard. Would highly recommend her to anyone!!
My daughter is very happy with Pierson as her piano teacher. It is a pleasure working with him. Has the right approach to make the lessons fun and engaging.
Ivan is a heavy weight pro vocal coach with over 20 years of experience in 10+ countries. Lessons with him worth pure gold for the students of all levels, from beginner to pro. I have worked with him many times and always got great results! Highly recommend!
