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.
Incredible experience working with Griffith Frank...only had a few lessons due to relocation, but learned more about my own voice in those lessons than any other experience I've had...he takes the time to not only help you find your voice, but he shows you how to explore and understand it in and out. If I ever get to make my way back to California, he's definitely the first one I'm lookin up to further my development as an all around vocalist.
Paul has been great to work with, he's flexible, and knowledgeable on what works best for our son. Plus our lessons are in the comfort of our home! He always communicates with us on how our son is doing and if he needs to practice more, so he can show improvement on learning notes. Paul also purchased a bass guitar so he can work with our son on learning the bass as well. I also asked if he can help us shop and pick out a reasonable amp and he agreed to help out and suggested a few places to shop at. Working with Paul has made this experience easy as I was worried of finding a good fit for our son. I would recommend Paul to anyone and you can't beat his rate!
When I came to Jan, I had damaged my voice with another coach with only 2 weeks to my next show. I was feeling really hurt and my voice had been hoarse for 6 days due to the last lesson I took. Jan gave me a warm up plan for my voice that would allow me to practice without risking further damage to my vocal cords. After following her prescription, I could feel my voice starting to respond. After 3 lessons my voice is returning to health and sounding sweeter again. I still have one more lesson before show time. I have no doubt all is and will be well for me on that stage. Yay! I'm so grateful to have found you.
Learning from Richard is awesome. What I love is how he focuses his lesson on you specifically rather than his other students. He's very open to working with different styles of music and has a classical/opera background, which he uses to demonstrate, so you know he's well versed in the craft. He really takes the time to explain to you what he's trying to get you to do and why, so that you understand it. It never feels like you're just practicing blindly. Since starting with him -- I've only had two lessons as of this review -- I've found that my higher notes, when I'm singing recreationally don't feel as strained they did before and singing lower notes has felt significantly easier. I'm excited to see how working with him will develop me as a vocalist. And the best part is, because he keeps his prices low, I'm never concerned that I can't afford to keep working at it.
I had joined a very established win in group and was so nervous about getting back to singing quality since it had been so long! I started weekly singing lessons with Stephanie and it was awesome! She went right to my needs with scales and feeling more confident about my changed voice. She utilized our time well and totally gave me great confidence as I progressed. She even thru a few fun songs of my favorite R n' R songs to make it fun. She is an outstanding musician and talented woman. Her teaching skills are wonderful, especially for someone like me so out of touch in singing with a choral group. I felt so good about myself! I highly recommend her.
Steve is a patient and encouraging teacher to my seven year old daughter. She enjoys the lessons very much.
Rickie is a phenomenal music teacher who gives her all in helping you bring out the best in your vocals. Rickie is patient and really works with her students to get the best out of them.
Brian is an awesome guitar player and teacher! He's kind, patient and very knowledgeable. I feel like I've learned so much in just a few lessons and I'm looking forward to becoming a better player under his tutelage. I like his teaching style (patient and encouraging) and getting to choose the songs I learn makes practicing so much more enjoyable. Lastly, he comes to my house for my lesson, he's always on time and his rates are reasonable!
Excellent at explaining and makes sure you thoroughly know what tips hes giving you. Very knowledgeable, my playing skills have gone through the roof after taking lessons from Thomas!
Very to the point and knowledgeable about the instrument. He obviously has studied the guitar for a long time and knowing that makes the lessons comfortable and effective.
We found Ms. Allison via Thumbtack and consider ourselves lucky. She is a patient and caring instructor. My 11 year old daughter loves her lessons. We started with her while we lived in Pasadena and have since moved but continue to drive over 40 miles to her home studio for lessons on Saturday for the past year. She is a talented musician and more importantly she is able to share her knowledge with our daughter.
Going into my lessons with Paul, I had no idea what to expect. I'd never had voice lessons before and my voice had been an area of insecurity for me my whole life. Thankfully, Paul coaches in a way that put me,a novice, at great ease. Even after just two lessons with Paul, my acting coach noticed a difference in my vocal quality. I was able to realize how I had developed a habit of incorrect breathing and posture and how it was effecting my every day life. He not only provided me with greater skill as a performer, but with better overall habits for speaking and carrying myself in day to day life.
Mia is an exceptional vocal instructor. I am a beginner singer. It is unbelievable to see how my vocal skills have improved with just a few private singing lessons. She is patient and makes the student feel comfortable. I couldn't be in better hands! From Beginners to Pros I highly recommend Singing Studio LA.
I wanted a teacher that could work with an older adult who not had piano lessons since childhood. After many years, I wanted to challenge myself by getting back into piano and I wanted to bring music back into my life. I was a bit nervous about making the commitment and about the time investment that would be required. I also didnt know a good teacher so I asked around. Howards name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howards approach is not the conventional one that I experienced as a child. He presents many types of approaches and uses lots of tools and techniques to build your skills and understanding of the structure of music. Now, Im stretching myself to learn, remember and apply these skills and it feels really good! I actually enjoy practicing my piano. Now thats a testimony to Howards influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. Im confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.
I have been taking lessons with Susan for more than 3 months. Susan is incredible as a teacher, very patient, kind and experienced. I have made really big progress so far, and enjoy every single lesson with her
Joel is very warm and friendly yet does not compromise professionalism. After only 2 lessons, I can tell my son is getting the type of 1-on-1 tutoring he was unable to get in his school band class. I highly recommend Joel Sturm!
Daniel is amazing! Not only is he inspiring and super talented at music, he really knows how to connect with his students and help you learn. He is down to earth and patient. I really enjoyed my lessons!
Base is reliable, punctual, and jumps right in when he arrives! He is focused on the student and pushes them (even if shy) with kindness and humor to grow and learn. My daughter is 12 and really enjoying her vocal lessons with him. We think he's great!!
My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.
