Very nice and friendly. When I first called CMS, I just wanted 30min guitar lessons, the representative quoted me the wrong price (cheaper) I said it was ok and I'll pay the right fee but the representative insisted on keeping her word. That let me know they were eager to show off they ability to satisfy.

Pablo is the man! I gave him my timeline and goals, and he's kept me right on track to get there. His lessons are fun, packed with learning, and clear on process. I have an insanely busy schedule and he's great about finding time for us to meet every week. Without his dedication to my learning, I'd not be nearly as far along as I now am, 3 month later!

Danielle is such a caring and amazing teacher. You can really see how much passion she has for teaching and singing. Learning from someone who has such talent and patience is such an incredible opportunity. She tries to understand what goals and expectations you have and from there she plans her lessons with you accordingly. Her ability to explain one concept in a few different ways really helps; she does her best to adapt her teaching style to the student. She also creates a comfortable and safe environment to allow students to build their confidence and encourages students to step out of their comfort zones to grow. I have been taking vocal lessons from Danielle for a few months now and she has definitely helped me bring my voice out. If you're looking for a vocal coach, I would recommend going to Danielle.

Belinda is a wonderful teacher. My daughter (who doesn't like to sing in front of people) feels so comfortable singing with her, and now is experimenting with the piano and writing her own songs during her lessons. We highly recommend Belinda!!

Nate is a great piano teacher! He worked with our 12, 9, & 7 year olds for more than a year. Nate builds a great rapport with kids & they respond very well to him. They were always engaged & enthusiastic during their lessons. The kids made a great deal of progress through these lessons with a variety of musical genres. We enjoy working with Nate & highly recommend him!

I recently took in my Peavey Classic 20 to Guitar Arts Studios, Lessons & Repairs because it had a rattling noise. Jason not only solved the problem, he improved the overall sound of the amp, installing some great new tubes. I highly recommend his services to anyone who needs a very professional and quick-turnaround job at a competitive price.

Besides being a “go to” in demand player, Marty is a gifted, versatile and sensitive teacher. If you’re lucky enough to have found him and are currently studying with him or have in the past, then you probably are about a million miles ahead of where you thought you’d be when you began lessons. If you don’t live in L.A., where he teaches, he’ll teach you on the phone or on Skype just as easily as if you were sitting next to him in person. I met Marty through my former piano teacher. It was time for me to get out there and play in a band, and I was terrified. Marty was conducting workshops for nervous adult rookies like me and put us together in different band configurations in a rehearsal studio every week with him. At first the sessions were mostly train wrecks, but the bands quickly become cohesive because of Marty’s incredible guidance that created confidence and strength in each of us. We all loved these sessions, and many of beginners went on to play gigs. As a former drummer and piano player, I knew for sure that Marty possessed everything a teacher needed to be great. In addition to teaching, He writes, arranges, and produces, which just adds to his contributions as a teacher. I am starting lessons with him again while living in another city. I am now studying the vibes! I’ve only had one lesson so far, and it was on the phone because it’s easier then Skype with the way my equipment is set up. It was like he was right there with me. Like he says, “I don’t have to see you to hear you!” He gave me the exact assignment I needed to study to start out. In just one lesson I was able to do some things that I never could before. Though pretty basic, I thought that if this is just a first lesson, I’m going to be playing at the Montreux Jazz Festival in a month. :-) Marty’s love of teaching is obvious. I’m one of the lucky ones.

Vince has been teaching guitar lessons to my 7 year old daughter for the past 2 months. He is patient, encouraging, and teaches with a good balance of challenge and support. Vince is always prepared and uses a book to supplement his teaching. He writes notes to illustrate his lessons which helps my daughter practice at home. Vince is thoughtful and encourages my daughter to collaborate during lessons and also tries to incorporate music that she enjoys. He plans two recitals per year (summer and winter) for his students who include children and adults. My daughter participated in the June recital after only one month of lessons! Vince taught her to play the Happy Birthday song as a surprise for my husband whose birthday was the day of the recital. The program was held at a Pasadena park and Vince centered the event around the student performances and did not promote himself or his program as many music teachers tend to do. Vince is humble, gentle, and encouraging. He focuses on teaching his students to enjoy playing the guitar and to feel confident about expressing their music. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in guitar lessons. He visits our home weekly for private lessons. His rates are fair and he is flexible should we ever need to cancel/reschedule a class.

George is a very positive and very patient teacher. He has a unique way of not letting you get down about where your current skill level and is very good about inspiring you and showing you how to get much better. Lessons are fun and you never feel like he's on the clock. Great teacher and a great human being! 5 Stars! I'm an adult, but I know that he is really great with kids too. I've recommended him to 4 sets of parents for their children and they couldn't thank me enough.

I would honestly recommend jj to anyone who wants dj lessons. I didnt have any equipment for half of my lessons but he provides them to you which was a big plus.

I'm an adult beginning piano player and started taking group lessons from Ann Louise a couple of years ago. She's a great teacher, patient, thoughtful and very encouraging. Her classes incorporate finger exercises, practice and theory without being overwhelming. And it's fun being with other students who are learning as you are. Plus she gave each of us a private lesson after each course. I plan to keep taking her courses as long as she offers them.

Jenni is great and super pro. Tried her out for corporate yoga at my downtown LA business--ended up hiring her once a week by employee demand, so we are still working with her. She is a great instructor who is always on time and equipped with a new lesson. Classes are challenging, but super approachable for beginners. 10/10 would recommend for private or corporate classes. Thank you, Jenni!

Wonderful teacher! Marcus was recommended to me by a friend after I started getting more serious about playing the guitar. Marcus is a fantastic musician and (just as importantly) has a real gift for teaching. He made even the hardest material approachable and easy to understand (even if it took me a few weeks to really get it down). When I first started taking lessons from Marcus I had very high expectations (my friend who recommended Marcus is quite the musician herself) and Marcus exceeded all of them and then some! I would HIGHLY recommend him!

After reviewing many resumes, we met with Miss Francine to go over our expectations, her training and her experience teaching children. Miss Francine was kind, polite, patient and professional, but the most important thing was that my Grandson was very comfortable with her from day one (his first experience with an instructor was terrible to say the least). After three months of weekly lessons I must say I am impressed with the progress my Grandson has made. I am looking forward to the first recital. The only thing I would have changed is the length of the lesson. We started with 1/2 hour but my Grandson very quickly asked for a longer lesson. We are now at 45 minutes. My Grandson is asking for still longer lessons. Other commitments on his end are preventing that right now. Would I recommend Miss Francine to friends and/or family? ABSOLUTELY!! She is wonderful with children and patient with Grandmas!

Great teacher, and has over 20 years of music experience. Geoff combines all the basics of music and the need-to-know lessons with just the right amount of fun and freedom that comes with playing an instrument. I would definitely reccomend him.
