I requested singing lessons and received 6 quotes rangers big from $36/hr to $100/hr. I eliminated 3 of them just based on the message they wrote to me and their reviews or lack there of. My passion is indie rock and Jan does not fit the profile of a rocker and she was vocally trained as an opera singer. However, her reviews were positive, she was priced in the middle, her message to me was pertinent and once I called and spoke to her I was sold. I didn't bother contacting the other two quotes I was interested in. Needless to say, my hunch was right and I had my first lesson last week. It went incredibly well. She amazed me. I am a song writer wanting to improve my vocals so I can work indecent from hiring a singer. I showed he some of my recorded originals and within seconds she knew what I had to improve to make my voice fit the song better. We changed the key a whole step, she had me pronounce some of the words differently and she gave input in to what could improve for the song instrumentally. She started showing me current artists and what I could take from their particular songs to inspire some rhythmic changes. she had suggestions on where to go and present my music to sale for commercial/tv/advertising. She had big picture advice on where to focus my energies. I couldn't believe what we packed in to a one hour rehearsal. She sat at her piano and taught me vocal exercises and explained to me how I could improve on them with what I call tricks to break certain bad habits I have formed. I can't wait to see her next week. She can totally rock!!!
I had such a wonderful time having a class here! Right away he knew what level to work with me at! Was very professional and a amazing studio set up. I look forward to being coached more in the future with Granted Records!
I contacted Josh to produce an original song I had written. After telling him my budget and explaining what I wanted the song to sound like, we scheduled a time to record for the very next week. I arrived at his amazing home studio and we recorded the whole song within a few hours. He wasted no time and sent me the first draft of the song later that day asking for my feedback on what I liked/didnt like and if it was sounding like what I had envisioned for the song. He then took my feedback and continued to edit sending me drafts along the way to make sure I liked and approved of the changes. I received the final version of the song extremely fast - within a couple days after the recording session and I love the way it turned out. At first I was a little hesitant to hire a producer because I have worked with other producers in the past that hadnt listened to my vision for the song and proceeded to produce it in the way they wanted it to sound. However, Josh was not like the producers I have worked with in the past. He really took the time to make sure he fully understood my vision so that he could help me create the song I wanted. Josh is a really great producer. Hes also extremely fun to work with and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout the entire production process. I would highly recommend working with him!
Lou was wonderful to work with, responsive to my suggestions and fast and efficent. I highly recommend his services both as a narrator and studio sound recordist
Tracy has been an invaluable asset for me in helping me get my voice over career off the ground. She provides detail oriented craft coaching and individually tailored career mentoring to an extent which well exceeded my expectations. She truly cares about her student's success! With Tracy's step by step guidance, I have set up a professional quality in home studio, secured agency representation, and started booking. Thanks to her my confidence as a voice actor is at an all time high, and I feel I'm becoming the caliber of professional you must be if you're to succeed in this extremely competitive industry.
My family feels very fortunate to be musically connected with Mr. Damien Smith My son, Corey, has been taking guitar lessons from him for the last two years and he has really made major strides as a young musician. The skills, knowledge, support and flexibility that Damien provides has kept my son excited and dedicated to learn more! Not to mention that he also has a refurbished home studio with an array of tech equipment and musical instruments to record your music - which is a bonus! We highly recommend him as an instructor! He's one very cool, nice guy!
Catharine was incredibly professional and accommodating for my VO recording for a BBC documentary. We had the team in London on face time as we worked and we were all able to work effectively and smoothly thanks to Catharine. Her studio is very well equipped, clean and comfortable and she is very accomplished technically. We will be back again!
Dave always has my vocals sounding radio ready and he’s really receptive to my creative process! That’s a rare quality to find in a studio unless you’ve been going for years
Frank and Studio 333 are awesome! Great setup! Great teacher! It's amazing learning from a talented and working musician. Frank is patient and makes each lesson fun. He works well with students of all ages; I met him when he was teaching my then 7 year old son. He's as patient with me as he was with my son. Frank's a great guy and you won't be disappointed!
Jonathan was amazing to work with! I'm a filmmaker who came to Jon to get a little ADR recorded, and ended up asking him to mix my entire project, do foley for it, and work with the singer/actress who recorded a song for the film. Our actress didn't have a lot of singing experience, but Jon was able to make her feel comfortable enough on her first time recording to get a really great performance. He also had fantastic suggestions to add to the song's production value. I would hire Jon as a specialist in any of these areas, and his proficiency in all these areas really streamlined my postproduction process. Highly recommend!!
I love working with Brian. As a hip hop artist, it's refreshing to get in the studio with somebody who sees your vision, then ads his own take to it and helps create something completely original. He's super fast with everything. Mixes the instrumental and vocals while we track. There never really seems to be a "rough" mix of anything. Once it's laid down, it sounds dope. The whole process runs really smooth. It's always good vibes and the tracks come out banging every time. Definitely my go-to producer in Los Angeles.
Taylor is the ultimate Pop Music Producer! He understands every kind of Top 40/Hit Music/Swedish Pop music which is why I chose him for my project. This is a professional you will be working with. He works faster on Pro Tools than I can keep up with my eyes, and I'm a Pro Tools 10 user myself. If you are looking for a HIT SONG, this is the man you need to contact. I have worked with many producers across the country, & he is the opposite than a lot of others. A lot of other producers do NOT like to always be told different ideas and directions, because it takes up their time. Taylor encourages talk within the project at all times. He always says it's the little things that can make a song huge- so speak up! THIS IS KEY to having a song that's not only a hit, but a hit in which you feel comfortable to sing live. I can't say I WOULD go back to him, because I already AM back in the studio working on the next project! :) Taylor is embracing of any styles/flares you prefer your music to have, so let the imagination go crazy while he starts exploring any direction or fusion of directions in music you like, because he will ultimately transfer a "crazy idea" into something radio friendly. I'm a very straightforward person who needs my music mixed/produced professionally,yet kindly with a personality too, in order to make me feel non-vulnerable while recording. Taylor is the ultimate in laid-back and friendly- with a genuine kindness to the table that can't be faked or authenticated. This implies passion within his work, and it shows. Book him yourself to find out, I'm glad I did, have no regrets whatsoever and highly advise people who want to fast-track their pop careers to contact him immediately to have him start working magic.
Dan provided a top notch recording experience for our group! He is obviously comfortable recording all genres of music. The fact that he is also a musician is a real plus. He hears what the band members hear and that was really invaluable-especially in the mixing stage. The environment is comfortable and equipment top notch. Our group highly recommends Dan for your next project! -Lance LaBelle and LL&F
I had a great experience with Josh, I was able to work with him in the studio and saw how talented he is from all the way engineering to producing the guy is a beast! I highly recommend him!
I’ve been playing and recording for 35 years and I’ve worked at a high level with some very talented people. I’m not going to name drop because it doesn’t matter, and if I were you it would stop me from reading the rest of this, but if you care about your music and want to put it in the hands of someone who has mad skills as a engineer/producer, and one of the best set of ears in town, then at least do yourself a favor and go meet and talk about your project with Andrew. He’s top shelf, cares about the music, is an incredible musician and multi-instrumentalist to help with vocals, guitar, or keys, and lays down some tasty bass & drum tracks. Best thing is he’s a great guy and an amazing partner to have in the creative process.
If you need a music collaborator, Billy is your guy. He is capable of creating numerous music styles with autheticity. He can produce and engineer ANY kind of hip hop, r&b, trap or EDM. He also has a signature sound of his own if you're asking for it. As an engineer he is unparallelled at getting quality vocal performances out of the singers he works with. Basically, the dude has killer taste and he'll raise the bar on whatever project you're working on.
Jason Dennis is a pro level guitar teacher who brings with him a wide array of advanced techniques for multiple styles of music. I am currenly recording an album and needed some help with lead guitar parts. Jason was able to teach me exactly what I needed to learn and then some. I would highly recommend him for all levels of guitar players.
Listen up please: I had screened several sound engineers while trying to find the right guy for the record we are making. I had been introduced to a sound engineer who has mixed and mastered for Bob Dylan and several other world renowned recording artists. Their fee started at $600 per day with a minimum commitment of 2 weeks. A friend who's band I managed insisted that I speak to his sound guy /producer. All these options I considered. I spoke with several sound engineers who had solicited me via Thumbtack. None of them understood what my vision was. Then I replied to Ivan Alexis Rivera of IAR RECORDINGS. When he listened to a track that I had forwarded to him, by the very words of his first sentence that he chose to respond with, I immediately knew that we were on the same page. He speaks my language, that being Rock and Roll. And although I am more than twice young Mr. Rivera's age, he is an absolutely gifted, brilliant engineer. We worked for the first time last night for about 9 hours and I am very much blown away at his skills behind the console. We have much work ahead of us, and I couldn't be happier with his professionalism and talent. Remember that name, Ivan Alexis Rivera of IAR RECORDINGS. He is going to the top!!! Thank you, -Leekai Herrera GLIMMERBOY MANAGEMENT 310-406-9967
The Greene Room is a wonderful recording studio! Marc Greene is the best recording engineer in Los Angeles, in my opinion. His knowledge of equipment, microphones and software is outstanding. He's also always been willing to work with me on scheduling sessions and accommodating my needs in every way. I wouldn't go anywhere else to record or mix!
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!
Absolutely love working with Jackson as he is incredibly professional reliable and made to feel super comfortable in the recording studio I will definitely be working with him and his team again Ralphy
