Albert Benichou was totally professional in assisting me in my voice over recording in his studio and we accomplished our ends. Great job!
Prolific Sound Solutions w/ Kyle was the best experience that my brother and I ever had. We will most definitely come back for him to record the rest of our rap tracks. They treat you like family and they are very professional and skilled at the same time. They listened to what we wanted and made it happened! It was also our first time in a studio and within the first few minutes it felt like home. Most definitely the best experience ever. Thank you!
The people at AllBout Music is the best quality and most professional experience that I've ever had at a studio. Being a 10 year veteran of recording, I've been searching for someone who holds the same standard as the million dollar studios but creates a n organic and affordable environment that allows you to be creative and efficient at once. In Short I highly recommend this business. Cheers.
Excellent in service. Everyone was professional and made me feel comfortable eventhough it was my first time at their studio. My time was valued and everyone was top notch. Big artist or small artist you're time is treated the same here. A+
Adam Hayman is a talented, well-rounded musician who always had a way to help me understand any musical question that would come to mind. Whether it was in regards to guitar techniques, music theory, audio production, recording, or even self-promotion, Adam would have a well explained response and would take the extra time to check if I understood or not. He is very understanding about the variety of skill levels and will offer different ways to practice or play so that one can find what works best for them. Taking lessons from Adam has created a large impact on my musical growth and has allowed me to use the learned tools to further my practice and technique.
I recommend ModernTone Studios to anyone who is looking to further their musical journey or begin one! The teachers there are so passionate about helping their students get to where they want to be with music. I’ve been taking lessons with Jacob for 1.5 years now, once a week. My progress since I started taking lessons has been lightning speeds faster than if I were to continue learning on my own. Jacob is very patient, knowledgeable about music theory and all kinds of music, and has an amazing knack for teaching. He makes the lessons fun and never wastes a moment of my time. He pays attention to details and explains things in a way that’s easy to understand. Most importantly, I feel that he has helped me gain much more confidence in myself as a musician. My passion for playing music has grown immensely since taking lessons and I’m really looking forward to recording and producing my songs at ModernTone Studios! And in addition to the great teachers, the studio also has a very relaxed professional *modern* atmosphere. Good vibes all around! I am so grateful to have stumbled upon this Bay Area gem!
I have spent the past two years recording an epic 4 hr jazz opera with Rick Vargas. Throughout the process, he has been the model recording engineer. He is at once calm and easy going, yet also inspired and focused. He offers consistently helpful feedback but only when you request it and always in a way that makes you feel safe and supported. His musical ear is as strong as his technical prowess. He is patient, smart as hell, and in short great at what he does. He is by far the best engineer I have worked with.
Our band sort of "cut our teeth" at Studio 132, recording 4 songs that we chose for our first studio recordings. BZ Lewis mic'd up the drums, bass, two guitars and two singers, and then went to work. The recordings were awesome. BZ managed to pair an amazing end product with a thoroughly enjoyable experience, He's easy to work with, has a great sense of humor, made us feel at home, and he was very professional. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for their sound. Thank you, BZ. From all the gang at Highway 13.
Hugo is friendly and pleasant person. He is also very professional and provided good quality recording of my voice over project.
Really glad I hired Raven! He is very knowledgeable in audio recording and helped me get my gear setup so I could record my Roland td30kv electronic drum set. He came very prepared with all the necessary equipment and is very professional. I'm very excited to start recording and look forward to working with Raven to fine-tune my setup!
Working with Nathan Reich was a dream! He has a positive and calming energy, which made me feel like the camera wasn't even there. He filmed a behind the scenes portrait of the recording process of my latest album, so that quality was key in order to avoid interrupting the creative process that is recording music. He received feedback from my team with grace and sent us drafts efficiently and promptly. Each step of the process was easy and fun: pre-production and planning, the filming days, and the editing process. Start to finish, Nate was a total professional, not to mention an incredible artist! In love with the final cut of his film.
Chris Denise is as talented as he is professional. I highly recommend Reel Eagle Studios.
He was very patient & passionate at what he does. A whole heartily ninja of creation. One minute he's laying down beats the next he's recording some indie folk stuff that's more underground than the underground. Everyone should have a piece of art recorded with this guy.
I have been very fortunate in that I have been trained by some of the best engineers in the music industry

I'm a 24-year old songwriter and guitarist from San Jose, California. I became interested in making music throughout my school band programs. Since then, I've never loved anything so much. As a teacher, my lessons go beyond learning scales and chords and countless technicalities. I can help you understand what your goals are as a musician and who you want to be. From there, we'll tailor your lesson plan to cater to those goals. My personal goal as an educator is to help you pave your own path towards a fulfilling life as a creative individual. Given, there are tedious hills to overcome as an aspiring guitarist, but I'll be there to help you through this and straight to the fun stuff in a timely manner.
