If you're an experienced singer looking to hone your skills, check out Griffith's other reviews -- I'm here to vouch for Griffith's ability to teach beginners. In fact, I came to Griffith having never sung a note in my life. Before taking lessons with Griffith, I was convinced that I simply didn't have "the knack." I just flat out couldn't sing. But my job brought me to Los Angeles for a few months, and in a surge of optimism, I signed up for singing lessons. All of Griffith's reviews were from experienced singers, but he assured me that he was down for teaching beginners. And calling myself a beginner was rather generous... Yet, in the brief two months I was in LA, I learned more about singing than I ever thought I could. I'm by no means a professional now, but I could probably perform in front of good friends or family with fairly positive results. And believe me, that's a monumental improvement. During my time with him, Griffith was friendly, professional, fun, and, most importantly, successful. He gave me good feedback during lessons and sent me home with useful exercises every time. Of course, I have literally zero other instructors to compare him to, but I can say with confidence that I would recommend Griffith for anyone looking to find their voice!

About

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.

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.

I have been singing most of my life and during that time I have worked with a few vocal coaches. I can honestly say that Summer is the best I have worked with. Whatever your vocal type Summer will help you achieve the best of your talent. My singing lessons were via Skype, which was a bit nerve racking at first, however Summer put me completely at ease! She is incredibly patient, compassionate and understands fully what it is like to be the student, which is one of the best qualities a singing teacher can have. Summer helped me greatly when I had a short time to rehearse for my west end debut and I can honestly say I don't think I would have been so confident had it not been for her. She helped me open my voice so it was better than it had ever been and her wonderful aura and kind attitude gave me the confidence I needed! Thank you Summer

Miss. Pehrsson was my own individual singing teacher throughout my schooling & higher education at Intake High School Performing Arts College, Leeds, England. As a student I always had enormous respect for her & still do to this day. Miss. Pehrsson would never force me to do anything I was not comfortable with but would not allow me to hold back either. Through her training my voice became much more controlled, I began to understand the concept of breathing correctly and took on her constructive criticism where necessary. I was often urged to improve and experiment whether it through different tones, genres of music or the encouragement of singing in the school choir. I gained so much more faith & belief in myself through these teaching methods which overall supported me with my self confidence and stage presence. Classes were very memorable, fun & creative. I was able to choose my own songs from the abundance of resources available through her and urged to incorporate my own unique style to the chosen piece. The fact that Miss. Pehrsson was so adaptable with her piano skills also meant that no song went without the perfect backing. The way in which she can improvise in this way still baffles me; she is a true musician! Personally I feel that one of Miss. Pehrsson’s top qualities is her way of creating the perfect balance between friendship and professionalism. As a tutor she was always easy to approach & understanding of any concerns; a crucial value for any teacher in my opinion. I believe Miss. Pehrsson would be a benefit to any institution & I am sure her future students will agree!

Shoshana is an amazing teacher! I started voice lessons with her for just a year and I've already improved so much. My friends and family have all noticed a significant difference. I feel much more confident in singing in front of people now. My range has increased and my tone sounds a lot better than when I first started. At first, I was a little hesitant about starting voice lessons, but she made me feel very comfortable and at ease. She knows exactly how to take your voice to the next level. I recommend Shoshana to all my friends. Take her lessons! You won't regret it!

Sanad has been working with my 4 year old son and his best friend age 6 for 1 month now. Sanad is excellent with children, they really love learning with him. He makes tennis fun so the kids stay interested and keep growing with the sport without burning out. I have been playing tennis for many years now and even took a lesson from him just to work on my back hand and was amazed after 1 lesson how my backhand improved he has great technique so you will be learning the correct way from the start. He travels to our private court and is alway on time. We are so happy to have found Sanad so i recommend you give him a shot, i guarantee you wont be disappointed.

It has been several months now since my nine year old son switched to Dalila. She has been doing a wonderful job on motivating my son who used to dread of going to violin lessons a lot. In addition to being patient and encouraging, Dalila's musical expertise is also incredible. We look forward to many more fun learning experiences and making great music together with Dalila!

Studying with Stephanie Vlahos has been an incredible growing experience; I walk out of every lesson feeling more confident in my technique. There are few out there who teach singers to become both artists and true vocal technicians, and Stephanie is one of them. It has been a pleasure working with someone with so much insight into the professional performance world and with such a deep understanding of the functioning voice.

Just got my first skype guitar lesson with the amazingly talented Pete Hopkins! It was so easy working with such a pro! Pete has a real natural flair for teaching. I was able to grasp the lesson in lightening speed compared to what I had envisioned. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a contemporary guitar teacher. Next I would like to try vocal lesson as Pete has such a truly gifted voice, and sings everything with passion and an incredible range. To work with Pete as a producer, I am really excited to see what he comes up with in the studio on an original song I wrote . Thank you Pete for the great lesson. Here's to many more! Need I say more? Not when you can listen to Pete on Utube or Facebook and hear for yourself! http://www.facebook.com/l.php?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Ftherealpetehopkins&h=RAQGSOPub

Leigh's flute and guitar ensemble during the reception and luncheon following my daughter's small and intimate garden wedding last year provided the perfect notes of joy and pleasure. Leigh's light and sparkling flute accompaniment proved that my daughter's earlier flute instruction were from an individual of fine musicality and precise technique.

I sing for a couple bands in LA and I have truly enjoyed and benefited from my voice lessons with Molly. She knows how to tailor a session to fit each person's needs and get the most out of your vocal instrument. As opposed to a general curriculum, Molly helps to make your unique voice as good as it can be, and most importantly--TO SOUND LIKE YOU!!! If you want to get the most out of your voice and truly improve your own uniqueness, Molly is the right gal for the job. I highly recommend Molly for not only beginners, but also experienced singers or anyone who thinks they might have "plateaued". One session and you will already see a difference!

If you're looking to learn or just keep an edge on your game Gettone will be the perfect instructor for you. A very patient instructor that will help you work on your current skills but when you're ready he will raise the intensity level to push your game to a whole new level. Definitely one if the best instructors I have ever had since I began to play the hame of tennis. And as the sweat rolls of your brow and into your eyes, he will make you smile, you will laugh, and you will remember why you love and started to play this sport. I could go on but then, where will the mystery and discovery be. In the end, you will not only Love-Love Gettine, you will find it will be a good match.

My son studied piano with CeCe for years and I have to say she is the person who sparked an interest and desire in him for music in all forms. He started as a novice in piano and she was able to make it fun for him and also tailor the lessons specifically for how he learned best. She was always enthusiastic and prompt, considerate and never made him feel embarrassed as he was just learning. Hes in a band now at his school learning violin but I believe that his interest and discipline started with her. I would highly recommend her as she is one of the more dedicated and responsible music teachers Ive come across. She not only teaches the piano but is competent and very knowledgeable in all facets of music. She is also a great singer to boot! So I feel as a teacher she doesn't just give a rote instruction but really emcompasses so many different aspects to make it a well- rounded learning experience. He will continue to go back for refreshers and inspiration!!

I will be updating my training experience as I move along. I have had the privilege to train with Michael for only 2-days and already I have noticed the difference in training styles compared to my previous year of training. I notice improvement as soon as I implement his technique. Hi experience is vast and his connection to you as an individual is refreshing. He makes it fun and serious at the same time. More to come... Gabe S.
