My experience with Mr. Lamb has been fantastic. He is very patient and works extremely well with my child. My son went from not really caring about piano lessons to now really enjoying his lessons. I feel that Mr. Lamb is very thorough, yet makes the lessons fun.

I signed up with Mindy for violin lessons and just had my first session. As a complete beginner, her explanations were very useful. I am looking forward to my next sessions.

My wife and I have both been taking lessons from David for almost 10 years. Not only has he been a great teacher and a staple in the music scene, he has also become a good friend. I had a couple of different teachers prior to David and none compare! He's mastered every aspect of the guitar and has a unique way of teaching what you want to learn. I still have his insightful guitar chart pinned on my wall. Thanks David!

We weren't sure what to expect from a self-defense class, but Max offered me a good breakdown over email prior to the coming in to teach, and once here, he was good about demonstrating techniques and allowing the class to do as much or as little as they were comfortable with. I found Max's lessons to be practical for the common person, and his teaching style is to the point, but relaxed. He'll answer questions as you go along and help you to chain together the different things he teaches you. We've asked him back for every other week, so he's definitely doing the right things! We have a lot of fun, but also learn a lot from Max.

My family has started lessons with Juan Carlos, and we're happy we found him. He's a patient teacher who structures lessons based on each student's progression and skill set. He also teaches the "right" way, i.e. fundamentals, thereby setting up students for success. It also helps that he's a nice guy and is extremely responsive with scheduling etc.

Garrick Davis is is easily the most artistic, fun, and creative guy I know. I have been taking lessons from him for four years now and if there is any thing I can say about him is that he is a great person and a wonderful roll model. Don't doubt him for a second he has amazing skills with the guitar and he will never leave you in the dust. He is grate at teaching you not only the song but each and every thing there is to know about each and every cord. He doesn't just teach you how to play songs, he teaches you how to play guitar.

Sarah is an excellent coach! I've been going once a week or every other week, and practice at home, and at the end of every lesson I hear improvement in my vocal ability. She is able to communicate her instructions or tips in a way I can understand. She also has a very approachable, bubbly, welcoming personality that makes the initial nerves of singing in front of others disappear. She makes sure to give positive as well as constructive feedback. To sum up, taking lessons with Sarah is always fun and motivating. Her lessons are a great start for beginners like me who don't know exactly where to start. Keep up the great work Sarah!

Welcoming, funny, patient and professional. Ken's style of teaching is exactly what I was looking for. Being a shy person I was hesitant to start vocal lessons. I just had my second lesson and I can't wait until next week. Great teacher!

I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.

Both of our kids ( 12 and 10 ) are having a nice time with Lynn while learning their drills. She connects with them individually and helps them learn their drills in a smooth way. Our daughter loves her voice and piano lessons. On the other hand, our son did not want to take piano lessons at all but after a few lessons with Lynn, he decided to stay with it! How great is that! Thank you so much Lynn!!! :-) I am happy and looking forward to seeing more of their progress!

I've been studying voice since I was 12 years old. I have been through a few different voice teachers in San Francisco and I feel so lucky to have finally found Patricia. Before Patricia I wasn't making progress that was satisfactory to me. Patricia seamlessly bridged my gaps in understanding and since working with her, I have progressed faster than I thought was possible. Patricia teaches a very effective technique for beautiful and healthy singing. When I began with her I wasn't confident with my musicality. Now, three years later, with her tools and training, I feel extremely confident as a singer and performer. Patricia's technique gives students freedom to express themselves through singing in ways that will not damage their instrument. I leave my lessons with Patricia each week feeling confident and understanding something new about my voice. Very often we have a breakthrough...something that never happened before! Added bonus, I love the location of her studio. So close to 24th street so I always leave time to grab a coffee before I come :)

I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.

Kristina is a great instructor. She crafted custom lesson plans, assignments, and provided me resources to hit my particular proficiency goals and ensured that with each lesson we made measurable progress against those goals. Furthermore, working with Kristina was always a pleasure because she manages to be both professional, personable and funny!

Emily listens to your goals and tailors her lessons accordingly. She accommodates a wide range of musical interests, from the very technically demanding (opera, jazz, etc) to the more simplistic (rock, pop, etc). She is supportive and pushes you to do your best and doesn't let little imperfections slide through, no matter how many tries it takes because she wants you to learn strong fundamental techniques. She is empathetic and has a great personality, and keeps the mood fun and light. I highly highly recommend Emily.

Vince is an incredible coach! I have been taking classes and private lessons from Vince for almost five years now, and it has changed my life! I've lost weight, learned many new skills, improved my balance, and most importantly I've gained confidence in myself! This is thanks to Vince's amazing ability as a teacher and coach. He pushes you without taking you too far, he gives you that vote of confidence you need to push through when it gets tough, and his attention to detail will ensure that you become the best athlete you can be. He has brought me from a person who has never thrown a kick to a confident martial artist, thanks largely in part to his level of personal attention - he makes time for all of his students to ensure that everyone grows and improves as much as they can. During private lessons, you get an amazing amount of personal attention and direct support - Vince does not teach a one size fits all program. My private lessons with Vince are an amazing chance to have him push me to work hard, improve my skills significantly, and gain confidence! Vince is patient, observant, and so supportive when he works with his students! I wouldn't be the athlete and martial artist I am today had it not been for Vince's teaching. I recommend him for anyone who is looking for a teacher and trainer to help them become their best!

I've had one lesson with Cindy so far and loved it! She walked me through proper techniques and we did a variety of self-defense training so I was constantly challenged and learning. I can say that after one lesson I already feel much more prepared, but I'm looking forward to learning more and getting stronger in the process! I'd recommend Cindy to anyone who is looking for the perfect balance of self-defense lessons and working out!

I worked with Angel from his vocal studio in Palm Springs back in 2011. I missed our lessons and his energy. He always motivated me to do my best. If I could move to San Francsico and work with him again I would, I cannot recommend him enough! Jay.

I had a great experience learning with Noelle. It was my first time ever taking any kind of singing lessons - she was very encouraging and helped a lot in improving my confidence with singing. She is also very meticulous and structured which I liked about her approach.
