I am very glad to have taken a trial lesson with Griffith. He is very knowledgeable about singing. I have studied classical singing for five years at the university, and I can tell you that Griffith's lessons are definitely on point. He reminded me of the key lessons I learned at the university, but had in part forgotten with time. Keys such as to always breathe and support the voice, to phonate as purely and naturally as possible, and to avoid all negative tongue action. His lesson reminded me of what my voice lessons were like with my former Prof, who had a doctorate in music. Interested in singing? Give Griffith a call. You won't be disappointed!

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!

I have been taking lessons with Debbie for two months now and I don't think I will be stopping anytime soon. My voice has really been improving since I started because she is such a great teacher and not to mention so sweet! The price is reasonable and she helps me in developing own voice, not try to make me sound like somebody different which Is really important to me too. I Would highly recommend her as a vocal coach.

Emo is an awesome artist he is patient and understand and knows when to push you to your very limit. I shopped around for voice coaches for weeks before I settled with Emo anyone reading this don’t look at anyone else. Go see Emo he’s laidback patient and he his lessons are fun.

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 didn’t get froggy, I didn’t 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 didn’t 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 didn’t 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

For the vocal lessons, I learned how to use my diaphragm, also I’m learning different styles of singing with my voice. I can now use my voice to go to alto and to mezzo soprano to soprano. I always try to practice my vocal exercises she gives me and the songs that we work on in the lessons. The exercizes are helping my technique improve daily. April is a teacher that pushes you to practice and work hard to be a strong singer. She pushes me but I’m improving at the same time. I feel she wants me to be successful as a singer. She makes me feel like I can do it!

I worked with Kevin for over 2 years during my time at AMDA Los Angeles, and would have worked with him for the entire 3 years that I was there if I had to option to. Kevin is an extremely knowledgable vocal coach and it was an extremely beneficial experience. In vocal lessons, sometimes the simplest concepts are the hardest only because they were communicated in a confusing way, but Kevin taught his lessons in very relatable terms and made sure I understood exactly what he meant before we moved on. He also paid attention to my strengths and weaknesses, catering to each equally. For example, he knew that I learned music very quickly and kept me motivated by giving me new songs to work on, while still focusing on my vocal weaknesses and never getting impatient if I was having difficulty. It was a true honor to work with such a patient, caring and knowledgable vocal coach, and if I ever come back to LA, I will be contacting him for more lessons. He was my voice teacher as well as my mentor during school, and I'd recommend him to anyone seeking a voice teacher.

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.

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 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!!!!!

I took vocal lessons with Mariela for about 4 month, and this was one of the best investment I've done, my range got wider, my tone got better, I can hit Higher notes.. These weird exercises worked lol !! What sets her apart other vocal teachers is that she's actually a great singer and performer. Thanks Mariela !!

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.
