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!!!

I have a 9 year old son learning guitar from Paul. Paul is really nice and full of passion for the work he do. He loves music and he loves teaching kids music. Paul is really patience with my son and is very detail oriented in finding what my son needs to focus on with his music journey. He is very punctual, reliable and will update you with his schedule. Paul also provides tuning application materials and teach my son how to tune the guitar. Paul also assist us to go the guitar store and pick out the perfect guitar for my son. We are very bless to find him as my son's guitar mentor. Thank you Paul!!
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!
Great Teacher! His playing demonstrates a profound knowledge of his instrument. Whether hes teaching you new techniques, chords and inversions, different styles of playing, or the basics of music theory, the lessons are presented in a way tangible to the student. He is better than any guitar player I've seen, so he can take you to the next level if you are already good, or he can help you as a beginner like me.
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!
Brian knows his stuff. I think he spent over 30000 hours on the guitar. I usually play him songs I want to learn, he listens for a minute or so and knows exactly how the song is to be played and what he needs to teach me. He is patient and his lessons are fun. I only had a couple of lessons so far but already scheduled the next one for this week. Feels like I found the right guy.
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!
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.
I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.
We have a child diagnosed with slight autism. We decided to get a private teacher at home due to the experience of a teacher bullying him in a music school located in Chino. Mr. Garcia has all the patience in teaching our son and he knows how to adjust his teaching lessons with him. Our son is always excited to get music lessons with him. Mr. Garcia is also teaching our 18 y/o daughter guitar. And she is always happy and contented with his teaching techniques. Thank you for doing a great job with my children.
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.
I am taking private lesson with Mike Smith. He is a very talented and patience guitar instructor.I am very happy with the quality of guitar lessons I have received from him so far. I highly recommend him to anybody who would like to take guitar lessons.
We are only 1 lesson in, but both my kids loved meeting Charlyn and working with her.
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.
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!
The only two hiring have been great, the current one is awesome, Marie seems very cooperative and genuine. My daughter love's her. And now from wanting first, singing lessons, also wants to learn the piano as well
I just started taking lessons with Nolan. I have enjoyed my lessons. His way of teaching is encouraging and inspires me to want to learn. He is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. As a beginner, I highly recommend him.
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.
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
Excellent guitar and piano teacher! Very good with kids. He's been my son's music teacher for over 5 years.
I had already been messing around on the guitar for a while, but decided to finally take the plunge and start taking bass lessons here in LA. Simply put, there is nothing that Roman can't do or teach on the bass guitar. Roman formulated a lesson plan centered around my own experience and goals as a musician, which increased my understanding of music as much as my ability to play. In taking music lessons from Roman, you not only get an incredibly knowledgable and experienced instructor, but you also get a funny, laid-back guy who is willing to jam along and offer insight into any musical piece you put in front of him. Roman is truly the total package, and I can't imagine taking music lessons from anyone else.
