If you're an experienced singer looking to hone your skills, check out Griffith's other reviews -- I'm here to vouch for Griffith's ability to teach beginners. In fact, I came to Griffith having never sung a note in my life. Before taking lessons with Griffith, I was convinced that I simply didn't have "the knack." I just flat out couldn't sing. But my job brought me to Los Angeles for a few months, and in a surge of optimism, I signed up for singing lessons. All of Griffith's reviews were from experienced singers, but he assured me that he was down for teaching beginners. And calling myself a beginner was rather generous... Yet, in the brief two months I was in LA, I learned more about singing than I ever thought I could. I'm by no means a professional now, but I could probably perform in front of good friends or family with fairly positive results. And believe me, that's a monumental improvement. During my time with him, Griffith was friendly, professional, fun, and, most importantly, successful. He gave me good feedback during lessons and sent me home with useful exercises every time. Of course, I have literally zero other instructors to compare him to, but I can say with confidence that I would recommend Griffith for anyone looking to find their voice!
Stephanie is a very patient and pleasant teacher. My son now looks forward to his piano lessons and is actually enjoying them. She is a great choice if you are looking for someone who makes teaching fun.
My experience has been very good.. At first I came in just wanting to sing songs but after taking a few weeks of lessons I have learnt so much more than I was expecting and really learned how to use my voice in the correct way!
I've been taking lessons with Debbie for less than two months and I can already see results. She teaches in an understandable way. I can assure that the practices at home with the recordings in class are of great help. I stopped singing at the age of 10 and haven't properly sang until right now (age of 18.) I can already see results in just a short period of time. She is patient and makes it comfortable to sing. I am auditioning for the X Factor soon and I feel very confident on improving and getting through the judge's audition and bootcamp. I would really recommend her if you're considering on taking singing classes.
Emo is an awesome artist he is patient and understand and knows when to push you to your very limit. I shopped around for voice coaches for weeks before I settled with Emo anyone reading this don’t look at anyone else. Go see Emo he’s laidback patient and he his lessons are fun.
I highly recommend GreenTree and Sidney!! Coordinating piano lessons and other artistic endeavors with Sidney was an effortlesss and pleasant task. He made it happen and initiated some remarkable lessons. GreenTree is on speed dial for our next visit to OC.
James is an excellent guitarist. It was a pleasure taking lessons from him at Peaceland Music. I learned a lot, improved my playing, and had a great time!
For the vocal lessons, I learned how to use my diaphragm, also Im learning different styles of singing with my voice. I can now use my voice to go to alto and to mezzo soprano to soprano. I always try to practice my vocal exercises she gives me and the songs that we work on in the lessons. The exercizes are helping my technique improve daily. April is a teacher that pushes you to practice and work hard to be a strong singer. She pushes me but Im improving at the same time. I feel she wants me to be successful as a singer. She makes me feel like I can do it!
We have a child diagnosed with slight autism. We decided to get a private teacher at home due to the experience of a teacher bullying him in a music school located in Chino. Mr. Garcia has all the patience in teaching our son and he knows how to adjust his teaching lessons with him. Our son is always excited to get music lessons with him. Mr. Garcia is also teaching our 18 y/o daughter guitar. And she is always happy and contented with his teaching techniques. Thank you for doing a great job with my children.
Hi Marquita! I just wanted to thank you. I gave my first lecture since being coached by you with my breathing and speech. It went wonderfully! My voice didnt get froggy, I didnt cough or have to clear my throat, I remembered to take more time between sentences and breath more from my diaphragm. It went so well, I didnt even remember to be nervous or anxious about those things. I spoke for an hour - and it felt really good to concentrate on just speaking from my heart. I know I didnt spend a lot of time with you, but your homework is so valuable to me. I practice your lessons all the time, in little spurts, throughout the day and it paid off. Thank you thank you �� Big hug - Alison
I have been taking voice lessons from Lou Savage for a few months now he is excellent. He has a great way of referencing a movie or describing a great meal or talking about how a sailboat sails on the water, and how these references can influence singing and learning how to use one's voice in performing. I have really enjoy my time with him. Thank you for everything Lou.
Cosima is a very personable and knowledgeable vocal coach. Her demeanor is comforting yet encouraging when working through those "rough notes". In the short time we have been taking lessons from her, she has given my son much needed confidence to navigate his changing voice. We are very happy to have found Cosima!
Vanessa was my singing teacher for approx 3 years in Melbourne. Having never had singing lessons before and starting later in life Vanessa was great in assesing what level I was at and moulding my lessons to suit my ability. I also really liked how I could chose the songs that I liked to sing which made it more enjoyable. I improved my ability very quickly and got a lot more enjoyment out of singing because I had the right technique. Vanessa is a very gifted musician and a great teacher.
It is with full confidence that I recommend Mia Slayford as a vocal coach. Mia has been teaching students to achieve their best singing voice for many years. Futhermore, Mia is capable of directing large groups and was instrumental in co-instructing a successful secondary school choir. Not only does Mia connect on a personal level with each student to help them reach their individual goals, her own talent and enthusiasm in the music profession is an inspiration to others. I can say from personal experience that Mia was instrumental in helping me develop my musical flare and I have the fondest memories of our time singing together. There is no person I can recommend more for their passion or expertise in this field. Mia is the perfect vocal coach to help anyone sing with confidence and will always go above and beyond to ensure lessons are engaging and fun! I hope this recommendation can help you make your decision with confidence!
I have been a student of Marianna's for over six years. The power and quality of my voice is remarkable, compared to when I first started taking lessons from her. My lessons are over the phone, since I live in Texas and she is in California. She can tell what I'm doing wrong, by the sound of my voice (e.g., I'm not dropping my jaw on high notes). Singing has also been great therapy and has built my confidence. Thank you, Marianna!
I took vocal lessons with Mariela for about 4 month, and this was one of the best investment I've done, my range got wider, my tone got better, I can hit Higher notes.. These weird exercises worked lol !! What sets her apart other vocal teachers is that she's actually a great singer and performer. Thanks Mariela !!
Brian was the best vocal teacher I have ever had. He was professional yet personable, and the tools he gave me improved my vocals way beyond my expectations. I highly recommend taking lessons from him if you want to take your vocal performance to the next level.
My daughter is currently taking lessons with HWAA and she loves her instructors. The instructors are patient and are always flexible with our busy schedule. I highly recommend this academy!
I was Dr. Batistas student for almost four years. I would highly recommend her teaching style to everyone that interested in mastering the piano. Alma is extremely passionate about her work and truly wants her students to excel in music as well as in life. In addition she has won many prestigious awards during her career as an instructor and musician. She is extremely experienced, professional and organized. Alma makes her students very comfortable and attends to their needs and individual learning styles. When I was her student she was not only a teacher but also a positive role model and mentor to me. She always wanted me to do my very best in whatever piece I was playing. During lessons she expects her students to be respectful (as everyone should be) and willing to put their focus solely on music while under her direction. Her passion inspired me to grow both as a student and a musician. Overall no matter what age range you are or level of experience you have you should definitely take lessons from Dr. Batista! It is well worth your investment!
Mandy is an incredible teacher. My son started taking piano lessons with her and now is taking guitar lessons. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and fun to be around. I am very happy with the progress my son has made and would highly recommend Mandy.
I am currently taking lessons with Alissa. She is really nice and understanding, plus she makes a new lesson plan for me every week. She comes to my house too!
