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.
Griffith is spectacular. I grew up doing theatre and taking vocal lessons and never had a handle on how to release my voice or fully handle my range. He has completely transformed how I sing and helped eradicate fear and insecurity around my voice. His ability to hear exactly what is going on in your body that may inhibit your vocal expression is amazing. He can hear me strain out a note and know precisely how to communicate what I can do to relieve the tension. I remember recording our first lesson and playing it back for someone years ago. I wailed out a song atrociously and then Griff gave me a few pointers and then sounds I’d never heard came out as I sang the song again. Also, Griff is respectful, honorable, funny, kind, and generous. Just a really great guy. I get to enjoy his company and have wonderful coaching all at once.

My daughter takes piano lessons with Paul. She really enjoys the lessons and gets better at it.
Singing is something I have always wanted to learn how to do but have never known how to go about it. I started working with Richard about 4 months ago and in this short time I have already seen amazing results. I came to him with absolutely no singing experience. I couldn't even match a note in my first few lessons with him. He has been able to get me to begin using my singing voice in such a short amount of time. I would recommend Richard to anyone I know looking to learn how to sing. He is a great teacher and someone who makes learning how to sing fun and exciting!
Steve is an awesome teacher and a nice guy. Highly recommend. I always come away from a lesson having learned something. Look forward to many more lessons with him.
Paul is a great guitar teacher, I’ve learned a lot I just a few lessons. It’s also really valuable that he makes sheet music for the songs I want to learn and teaches me how to play them! Thanks Paul!
I really enjoyed studying with Brian. unfortunately a health issue prevented me from continuing my lessons,I do intend to keep studying with Brian as soon as I am able, which should be soon
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!
Going to Peaceland Music has been a very outstanding experience. My teacher, John, is very knowledgable with guitar, piano, and overall music theory. John is a very funny guy and I'm glad I've been taking guitar lessons with him for the past year and a half. He's made learning guitar very fun and interesting. Aside from learning scales and theory, you also can choose a song and John can work on it with you and help you make your performance of it better. But make sure to practice the theory and scales he gives you! You will fall behind very quick, because the lessons build off of what you previously learned. John is very good at working with people at a variety of different levels. It doesn't matter if you're beginning, intermediate, or advanced, he'll work with you at your level and help build on what you know.
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.
Chris is an amazing teacher. He really doesn’t like to mess around. Learning how to play the guitar is not an easy task at all, but after just a few lessons with Chris I can guarantee that you’ll feel more confident in your ability.
I've taken weekly lessons from Kim for the last eight years. Kim is accomplished, very well educated (meaning she knows her stuff!), an amazing player herself and a great teacher. My playing has come a very long way over this time. I couldn't recommend her more highly as a teacher or a human being. I must point out it pains me to see someone who has never taken lessons from Kim (Oscar V.) give her a one star. Having taken lessons from Kim's home studio and remotely via Skype I've never for one moment felt anything but comfortable. Might I suggest guitar is about the playing, not about the room you're sitting in.
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!
Omar is an excellent teacher, very patient and understanding. Lessons move quickly and I am learning both theory and application (piano). He also helped me decide on which piano to buy and what would be the most affordable options. I would greatly recommend taking lessons with him!
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.
It is with full confidence that I recommend Mia Slayford as a vocal coach. Mia has been teaching students to achieve their best singing voice for many years. Futhermore, Mia is capable of directing large groups and was instrumental in co-instructing a successful secondary school choir. Not only does Mia connect on a personal level with each student to help them reach their individual goals, her own talent and enthusiasm in the music profession is an inspiration to others. I can say from personal experience that Mia was instrumental in helping me develop my musical flare and I have the fondest memories of our time singing together. There is no person I can recommend more for their passion or expertise in this field. Mia is the perfect vocal coach to help anyone sing with confidence and will always go above and beyond to ensure lessons are engaging and fun! I hope this recommendation can help you make your decision with confidence!
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!
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)
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.
Great Spanish teacher for my children! Not just teacher also life coach.... Thanks Marcela
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!
