I always wanted to take singing lessons but never had the opportunity and courage. Mindy made everything easy. She is patient, competent and always greeting you with a smile. That's why I decided to take piano lessons as well ;)
Sarah is amazing! I had only had about 4 lessons with Sarah when my friends wanted to go out for karaoke. None of my friends knew I was taking singing lessons and they were surprised. I got so many compliments! I was so happy that even just after a few lessons, I could already take away tools that Sarah taught me and put them into action! I was very lucky to find her. I had searched for awhile for a vocal coach and they were either too expensive, really far or in group setting (which I was too nervous to do being a beginner). I very much enjoy my one-on-one lessons with her. She's so sweet and makes you feel so welcomed and keeps you in good spirits about training your voice! I will definitely be continuing my lessons with her! Thank you Sarah!! :)
I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.
Donna helped me to be a better music teacher. As a teacher, I took lessons and often refer to the wonderful notebook Donna put together for me, with tons of ideas and thoughts about music in general. Donna can help musicians, and beginners, to really understand the elements of music, and suggest how to make music your career, or just enjoy music as part of your life skills.
Been singing for many years and surprised to still be learning so much. Juan is quite professional and disciplined. He identifies where you need work and starts with fundamentals. You can't fake it with him; he'll know! I recommend going into it with a clear goal and he'll design a program for you.
I found out about Anna when I saw a promotional video of her online which my friend had posted. In the video I was impressed by the high number of students she had from all over the world of differing ages and singing levels, from beginners to some of Beijing's finest expat live musicians. Right away I noticed the joy which every student seemed to radiate while being taught by Anna and they all had wonderful things to say. Me being a singer myself and always wanting to better my voice decided to give Anna a try. I got into contact with her first by phone and immediately felt her open, warm, friendly vibe and I knew then that I was going to like her very much. And when I met her in real life, that was confirmed to me even more. I had my first class with Anna and by the end of it I was questioning myself as to whether what I achieved really happened. All my years as a singer, I've had difficulty in singing in a quiet , smooth 'mixed head voice' and by the end of the class I was doing it. She had me belting high notes which I thought no longer existed in me. Anna with her fine experience was able to immediately pin point what I was not doing right, correct it and further teach me better and great techniques that I needed to achieve my vocal goals: all with a very encouraging and motivating spirit. I continued classes with her and was so honored when she chose me to be one of her back up singers for her band. Anna herself is not just a great music teacher but an amazing singer too. There is so much I can say but to not make this review into a novel, I'll end here by saying, Thank You Anna so much for believing in me and my voice when I stopped believing in myself and for helping to reignite my passion for singing. <3 Choose Anna as your vocal coach and see for yourself all the great things I have mentioned. :)
I have really enjoyed working with Liz this past year. The techniques that she teaches not only elevate your singing skills, but also improve overall vocal quality and performance. Liz is great about addressing all aspects of the vocal experience, and still making it fun to learn and improve!
Our 13 year old daughter has absolutely loved her singing lessons with Liz over the past year! Liz is consistently bright and positive while advancing our daughter's singing abilities on many levels. We also enjoyed seeing Liz perform in a bilingual musical play for children. We attended with parents, and kids from ages 7 to 17, and we all loved the experience and Liz's impressive singing and acting. Great job, Liz!
She has improved my singing abilities a lot after only a short period of time. The lessons are always fun and productive.
Though I have been singing since age 9 in lessons and onstage, working with Stephen in the past year has really launched me to the next level, and helped immensely in the pursuit of my music career. His lessons, fine ear and extensive experience help me to see beyond my limits as a singer. He is accessible and enthusiastic as a teacher, and encourages the same qualities and focus in his students. I have become more technically apt, confident, and excited about my music career thanks to Stephen Bigger.
Emily was superbly welcoming and nice. She was very understanding of how nervous my daughter felt when she started, and how self conscious my daughter was about her singing. Emily encouraged her and brought up her confidence by a lot. My daughter loves going to the lessons and enjoys singing a lot nowadays. I would recommend Emily to people of all ages and ability.
Ben's a great, knowledgable and fun vocal coach that really caters to your needs, and then broadens your potential to things you never thought you could do. As a 21 year old male trying to be a pop/rock singer, in just a few short lessons he helped my range, breath support and overall tone improve drastically. Highly recommended if you're looking for good results quickly in improving your singing voice.
I wholeheartedly recommend vocal lessons with Mark! I leave our sessions inspired and feel I now have a priceless and foundational understanding of technique. Lessons are fun and informative. Mark is the best!
Alivia is a fantastic teacher. She tailors the lessons to my daughters voice and ability while also encouraging her to push herself. She incorporates theory and performance into the lesson plan. She is a fantastic teacher.
Jonathan is so great! Lessons are fun and productive - he brings lots of insight and experience and I improved very much.
I have been taking voice lessons from heather for over two years. When I began I wasn't sure I could sing at all. Heather has helped me immensely with expanding my range, rhythm, carrying notes, style and most importantly connecting with the music emotionally. She approaches vocal coaching with kindness but has gently pushed me to be new levels I never thought I would reach. I often get complements on my voice from friends other musicians and that makes me smile. Learning to sing has been one of the most freeing experience of my life and I am so grateful to Heather for all her expertise and encouragement.
Even as a professional singer who has made appearances on America's Got Talent, The Singoff, and X-Factor, and who has performed as a Backup Singer for Justin Bieber, Usher, and Mary J Blige, I believe there is always room for improvement. Ross has been an amazing vocal instructor for me. I've worked with Ross for over two years, and he has helped open up my voice, tone and range. Singing as a baritone/bass most of my life, Ross was the first instructor to tell me that I was a tenor. Previous to Ross' instruction, singing any note above a middle F meant either yelling or transitioning to falsetto. Once I started working with Ross, I was able to sing an F# comfortably, then a G, then a G#. And it hasn't stopped. Ross uses classical technique, exercises, and visualization to help open up your voice. In addition, to Ross' technical expertise, he is also very easy to work with. He has a welcoming and comedic personality that makes every lesson fun. I would highly recommend Ross as a vocal instructor for singers at any level in their career.

Natalie has been fantastic to work with! Her instruction through exercises, general tips/suggestions, and specific ideas when working on a particular song has all been stellar and on point throughout my work with her. I feel like I have improved dramatically over the course of our lessons, and my band members have made several comments about my improvement as well. She has an uncanny knack for knowing what I am doing with my breath, diaphragm, throat, mouth, etc., and being able to suggest just the right adjustments to make things sound better and more comfortable to sing. Natalie is a wonderful person, too, very encouraging, supportive, and respectful. I highly, highly recommend her!!
Wendy brings a wealth of knowledge about music and singing, combines it with enthusiasm, genuine caring, and experience, and channels it all into her teaching. Lessons are always fun, engaging, educational, and tailored to the student's unique voice and abilities. I'd recommend Wendy to any aspiring singer of any age without reservation. - Horst, San Rafael, CA
