Griffith is such a fun teacher. He adapts to your needs and abilities without ever making you feel inadequate or stupid. With my infinitesimal music knowledge, Griffith sprinkles in music lessons between vocal warm ups. It's interesting to learn and see videos of how the voice works and how the body helps you sing rather than just going from warm up to song week after week. Thank you Griffith for such a fabulously fun way to learn and become more comfortable with my voice!
Paul is a great instructor, very friendly, very musicly knowledgeable. He's great with kids, our eight-year-old son really enjoys his music lessons with Paul. He understands his student's talent and designs lessons according to the student's skill-set. Our son learned a lot from Paul at a progressive pace. I would recommend him for any students that desire to progress artistically.
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!!!
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.
I've had four lessons so far with Steve, and I am so pleased with how it is going! Steve is very skilled, patient, kind, punctual and professional. He responds to all my questions, and is very encouraging. He comes to my office in Pasadena to give me my lesson. I find that the biggest challenge in learning something new, is keeping my own internal critic under control as I struggle with note reading, and learn how to play the guitar. The fact that Steve is so patient and never critical helps to offset my internal critic. I have felt self doubting in the first two lessons, but by lesson 3, I am confident that if I keep practicing and working with Steve, eventually I will get it. Steve also shared info re his Taylor Mini guitar which is much smaller than the typical guitar, easier for me to play because the frets are smaller for smaller hands. I just bought my own Taylor Mini, a beautiful instrument which also inspires me to keep at it! Steve is also introducing some popular songs starting in lesson 3, which also makes it more enjoyable. This is one of the best decisions I have made for myself, and I am very happy that I was lucky to find Steve. He's great!
Great instructor. He is very patient and has a very understandable way of explaining things. He did often forget to follow-through with sending things (music, lesson sheets) or bringing them to the next lesson. If it wasn't for that minor issue, he would definitely get 5 stars!
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.
I have been taking private lessons at the Donna O Studio since my Sophomore year of high school in 2006. I did have to take time away from the studio for college but since moving back to the area, I have resumed lessons in opera, classical, and musical theater. I have loved the vocal instruction that I have received over these years at the studio. Donna is a master of her craft and you can really tell that she loves what she does. She invests so much of her time to her students and grooms them for vocal success. She is very good about explaining proper vocal technique and also the fundamentals of performance, auditioning, and even vocal anatomy; where our sound is coming from and how your whole body is used to create sound. She has many singers of all ages and vocal backgrounds so you'll be sure to find satisfaction in your vocal instruction! The best thing of all is that I am still learning new and wonderful things about my voice and am tackling new vocal goals!
I am 57 years old (no Spring chicken) and came to Thomas for tenor sax lessons. My purpose is to perform and record sax solos for classic rock and blues. Thomas does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me a road map to achieve them. Very patient and intuitive.
Kimberly Allison is the best guitar teacher I have had. I have thought what it would have been like to have taken guitar lessons from Randy Rhoads or Joe Satriani. Kimberly is my Rhoads and Satriani. I'm getting world class lessons under her tutlage. I wish I would have taken my first guitar lesson with her.
Our 4-year-old and 7-year-old have really enjoyed their intro piano lessons with Charlyn. They are proud and excited to be playing songs so quickly!
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'm a songwriter/composer and first came to Kevin to learn how to sight read and improve my technique. After only a handful of lessons, I was learning music theory, composition techniques, and reading notation. With some hard work and determination, I quickly noticed an improvement in my playing, writing, and ability to read music. Within a couple months I had built a playable repertoire. After 6 months, I was working on material that had once seemed impossible to learn. His teaching methods strengthened my confidence as a musician, while also encouraged my appetite for learning. Kevin is both patient and passionate about teaching. His clear, straight forward way of communicating made it easier to grasp complex musical concepts. He is also a passionate, hard working musician, and beyond excellent pianist. Any aspiring musician could benefit from his wisdom and teaching. This review can't fully capture my gratitude for having Kevin as a teacher and musical mentor.
My daughter was very nervous starting piano lessons. I tried it too when I was a kid and remember quitting because the impatience of the teacher I had. But Faye is so calm and patient with my daughter. She is having a great time and Faye is such an excellent teacher. My daughter is learning to play music the right way (notation + theory) and is starting to sound like a little pianist herself. We are all so glad we found the perfect teacher!
Lucas is a very talented musician and teacher. He has taught guitar to both of my kids for the past 5 years. He's patient, fun and willing to tailor lessons to the individual's needs and personal goals. My 13 year old son (who has taken lessons with Lucas since 2nd grade) has learned to read notes, play chords and how to improvise on the guitar through his lessons with Lucas. He plays in our church band and does very well.
Dakota makes learning music a blast! Very professional, calm demeanor and an amazing piano teacher!!
JC has been working with my 11 year old son. The lessons are fun, thought out and productive. My son really looks forward to his lessons and JC makes learning fun. Having tried other teachers in the past, I would definitely recommend JC to anyone interested in learning to play guitar.
My son and daughter have had piano lessons with Cheri from Middle C Music for over a year, the past few months over Skype. We have had a terrific experience. My kids are very different, my daughter has autism and does not speak much and my son can get anxious, but Cheri is incredibly patient and works with both kids at their level. She goes out of her way to engage them with the music and works with them to select music they are interested in.
I took piano lessons from Ben for about one year. Ben was my first piano teacher and the experience was beyond what I had expected. Ben provided me a solid foundation of site reading, learning classical pieces of music, and introduced me to impromptu jam. His lessons were personalized toward my skill level and the direction I wanted to take my piano playing. Bens teaching style is professional yet with a laid back vibe which always made me feel comfortable and able to express myself. I definitely recommend taking lessons from him if you get the chance he was a wonderful teacher!
Ryan Rowles is an experienced and engaging music teacher. Very warm, personable, and talented. I would highly recommend him for students of all ages!
