Mindy was so great with our son in helping him with his singing. Not having had any voice training, and having to sing a solo in a play, he was very anxious about taking voice lessons. After the first lesson he was very happy and thrilled with Mindy's approach to the voice training. She was patience, very insightful and gave him some great techniques to use to stay within his range and meet some notes that he had to hit. She even gave him pointers on how to combat stage fright. Our 14 year old son gives her 5 stars too and that's saying a lot. We would highly recommend Mindy for voice training!
Super helpful in finding my voice and finding ways to explain concepts in a way that was easy for me to understand since I had no prior voice lessons or experience. Also, he is flexible in his schedule so it was easy to find a time for thre lesson that would work for me. Would definitely recommend for anyone who wants to improve their singing ability.
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.
I've been taking voice lessons with Sarah for about 6 months. I chose Sarah because of the quality and detail of her initial responses, as well as her obvious enthusiasm for teaching. I came to her as a hopeless cause in his mid-thirties who could never hit a note. Sarah and her teaching have shown me that I *do* have a voice in there and that I *can* do this. Her techniques and patience have helped me open up my range and start building tone and charecter to my voice. As a teacher, Sarah is professional and fun, patient and caring. She's always happy to try and explain concepts in different ways to help with my understanding. Everything we do in our lessons feels tailored completely to my voice, my issues and my goals. I'm not normally much of a reviewer, but I want to see Sarah succeed and I'm sure there's many of you out there wanting to take the first step into learning how to sing and unsure of where to start. I strongly recommend you contact Sarah and tell her your goals and listen to what she has to say.
Ann is a knowledgeable, patient, and talented teacher! I've completed 7 sessions so far and they have all been so enjoyable because of her teaching style -- encouraging and lighthearted. I have no previous training and didn't know what to expect from voice lessons, but it was easy to follow Ann's guidance. From learning to breathe correctly to singing scales and parts of favorite songs, we've already been through a lot in a short time frame. I look forward to continuing my studies with her.
Donna is a great teacher for voice lessons. Our first time meeting I sung to her and I was very nervous but she listened to me and let me know exactly what I needed to work on which was my breathing and the techniques that she showed works very well..she is very kind women and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a voice teacher..
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!
The best way I can describe Liz Hodge is as my “Go-To” for overcoming my biggest vocal challenges, writing compelling business speeches that sound like they should be on TED, and making a difference for my leadership team. As the CEO of Promote Her Business, my business speeches and vocal communication significantly affect my ability to get leads, opt-ins, and to have people want to follow-up with our membership and advanced networking programs. Liz has helped me transform my voice into something I like to hear, am proud of, and have confidence will bring me and PHB more business. In addition, as President of our SV Chapter, I take very seriously who educates my leadership team -- of over 10 people -- on the best practices in speaking and vocalizing today. Liz did such a great job giving a mini group workshop to the women entrepreneurs and male allies on our team. And most impressively, Liz’ teaching is so practical that it lives on … my leaders are still referring to what Liz taught us before they speak in front of the community.

I’ve been singing now for just over 20 years, working with different instructors from my high school chorus teachers, to my voice instructor in college to vocal lessons by CD. NONE have been able to get the best out of me like Liz has. Her understanding of how different voices work is the greatest strength every vocal instructor should strive for. In just two sessions with her, I feel and hear a vast improvement in how my voice sounded before her and after her. So to anyone who’s looking for an instructor who works with YOU and not someone who teaches the same lessons to everyone they work with, Liz Patterson is the one you want to work with!
I have been taking voice lessons with Marla Volovna for 7 months now. In this short time I have progressed faster than I ever had before, in vocal technique as well as in interpretation and musicianship. Marla is very demanding, very honest and very encouraging a killer combo for success. And Marlas commitment to her students progress really extends beyond the weekly lesson, with regular communication of tips to improve technique, interpretation, links to performances, documentaries, archives, etc I highly recommend Volovna Vocal Studio.
My lessons with Miriam are awesome! She's not just teaching me about singing or how to use my voice but also everything around it like posture and emotions. She helps and encourages me to push my limit, expanding my vocal range. I'm really enjoying my lesson with her and always looking forward to our next session!
Initial consultation and 1st lesson were great! I learned many new things and Dan presented the material in a way that was easy to grasp. He makes learning the guitar exiting and I’ll be signing up for additional lessons!
My daughter recently started doing piano lessons with Lynn and she just loves it. She loves Lynn and thinks she is so nice. I sat in on her first session and I learned so much just from watching in the background. Lynn is an outstanding piano teacher and I recommend her for anyone interested in piano or voice lessons.
Sarah participated in the St. John's choir and also took private vocal lessons with Emily to improve her singing and confidence. We found Emily to be fun, responsible, engaging, and we saw great improvements in Sarah's abilities during her time with Emily. Additionally, I will emphasize that Emily has great skill in working with a variety of personalities, including expert skills in working with special needs kids.
I enjoyed how Alison interacted with my children in teaching the guitar and piano.not only was she professional, knowledgable, but she made the lessons enjoyable. My children look forward to their lessons & I would reccomend her wholeheartedly
My son had a great time at his first lesson!
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 attended Anna's voice workshops and also took individual classes with her. She is an amazingly patient and dedicated teacher who has developed her own unique method and technique that will help you grow your voice even if you don't believe you have a special talent.
Ross was very helpful. He was very encouraging and that is necessary for someone like me who hasn't had lessons in years. Ross pointed out what I was doing right and we worked on that, then we moved on to things I needed to improve. I feel like in our one hour lesson I learned more than I have before. I can't wait for our next session :). I would highly recommend for any singer, no matter what level, to have a lesson with Ross.
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!!
Shannon is wonderful and easy to work with. She gives a lot of insight and feedback. She took the time to ensure I understood technique. I’ve been extremely happy with the results in a short amount of time. Well worth it.
