I have studied voice on and off my whole life and i can honestly say that this man is brilliant! He is a genius at explaining vocal technique as well as emphasizing the importance of emotional content in a piece of music. This is the teacher i have been looking for in Los Angeles for a long time. I am so happy and grateful i was guided to him. If you are looking for a teacher that embodies what he teaches go to Griffith. He is also an amazing singer. My voice and its overall placement and focus has changed in a month. Along with being an excellent vocal coach he is a very kind person.indeed. I recommend him highly.
My 14 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Paul for 2 months now. He has a set method for teaching music principles to build a solid foundation. What sets him apart is that he adapts the lessons to the individual student. He is easy to communicate with and is very accommodating about scheduling. He is also very professional and clearly loves teaching music. He comes prepared and uses various methods and technology in teaching the lessons. He seems to have a desire to continually grow in his profession and bring the best learning experience possible to his students.
I love to sing it´s just fun for me and it makes me happy. But I´m not a singer and don´t even want to go up on stage. I´m trying to be a songwriter andv I was just visiting a workshop at the songwriting school of LA. And on this evening I met Jan the first time. At the moment I´m travelling and I never thought that I would stay in one city that long. But at this evening when Jan made this workshop I swear you guys, I hadn´t laugh that much for a long time. When she asked me if I´d like to come to the class I just had to say yes. It was a heart decision and I don´t regret it! This woman is a very talented singing teacher and also songwriter with a lot of experience, for sure. But she´s much more than that because you can have a REALLY bad week or day, but the second you walk into that class this woman saves your day! She ´s just so funny! Every week I´m looking forward to that day. Of course the most people only want to learn how to sing or to perform but I think it ´s also important to feel comfortable and accepted. And she gives everyone the feeling of being accepted and she takes care of every student. And just to be clear, of course it´s not all about fun and of course you´ll learn A LOT. I just want to say that you´ll be enjoying it to learn from her ;) Thank you Jan
Richard Gill is an extremely talented and kind music teacher. I have been working with him for one year and I now sing well in the women's choir- Athenas at the Los Angeles Athletic Club. It has strengthened my voice and improved my self confidence tremendously!
Stephanie is a top notch musician, piano instructor, and human being. Her lesson plans are well structured and fun, and her enthusiasm for teaching is apparent as well. I highly recommend choosing Stephanie as your piano teacher.

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.
Paul is one of the greatest music teachers there could be. I've studied with him for about two years -- my skill and understanding have really developed. He's a great player and has a million ways to explain things so if you don't get it one way, there's always another approach.
We decided to chose Brian for my teenage daughter's beginning guitar lessons due to his willingness to teach her the type of songs that she wanted. Right away he connected with her and her music. He taught her the theory behind playing guitar as well as teaching her the tricks and skills of how to play the guitar. His practices were enjoyable and not just rote. She learned very quickly and therefore stayed excited about learning. Brian was always very complementary and encouraging. Brian also helped us buy useful equipment like a tuner, etc. She always felt safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend Brian as a guitar teacher.
Chris is an amazing teacher. He really doesn’t like to mess around. Learning how to play the guitar is not an easy task at all, but after just a few lessons with Chris I can guarantee that you’ll feel more confident in your ability.
Ive been taking weekly lessons from Kim for four years. What a great instructor! I look forward to each lesson. Before my very first lesson, Kim met me at Guitar Center to pick out the equipment I needed to get started - who does that anymore? Kim truly cares about her students and the music - theres no comparison to any music academy mill. When I first started taking lessons, I also tried a couple other instructors and Kim is by far the best most, knowledgeable instructor I found. I couldnt believe Oscar gave her one star what a joke! This guy never even took one lesson from her or saw the inside of the studio where she gives lessons and talks trash about her?? You couldnt ask for a better instructor or location. I would recommend Kim to anybody without hesitation. I drive two hours for my one-hour class every week, and would drive further if needed. Totally worth the one-on-one personal treatment Kim provides.
Charlyn has been an excellent piano teacher for our two children. She is a consummate professional, excellent at what she does, punctual, flexible, and exceedingly patient.
Tim is a real pro and a very patient teacher . I started with him and now have my 7 year old daughter taking lessons with him as well. Tim figures people out and gets them heading the right direction . I am very pleased.
As a professional Music Theatre performer in Australia, Mia helped me to realise my full potential of my singing voice and taught me to how to sustain a healthy voice over an 8 show a week schedule! Highly recommend to anyone who is looking to have a professional career in the arts or to those seeking the fundamental techniques to a good and healthy singing voice!
Howard Richman is not a piano teacher...he is a LIFE CHANGER. I went to him to learn piano...but realized that the lessons I learned studying piano with the MASTER were not merely lessons in music....but lessons that helped me see outside the paradigm in all areas of my life. Often, as adults, we "come back" to our music...to study what we have been "wanting to get back to" for years. I learned that this is often a time of great change and evolution for us personally. Howard, being so intuitive, knows how to tune in to each individual's needs.... and empower them to EMPOWER themselves. He is a BRILLIANT pianist, composer and master teacher. I've watched him perform miracles with young children who struggled with other teachers who simply wanted to teach "by the book." Howard is always able to find your inner talent and abilities, possibly that are even unknown to you...and he can creatively, intuitively and intelligently create a course of action that will leave you amazed! That's why you are reading SO many wonderful comments here about him. If you are lucky enough to get to study with Howard, it will change your life!...and btw, I can now play a mean Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"....Thank you for everything you taught me Howard Richman!

Susan is incredibly gifted as a musician and teacher. She is currently working with my 15 year old teenager who has been in piano for 7 years. His previous teacher worked well with him when he was younger but was not able to motivate and inspire him as a teenager. Susan sets high expectations and provides the support he has needed to be a more successful musician. She uses a variety of strategies that make learning how to play piano challenging but not impossible. She is amazing!!!
Hope, my kids will continue high music education.
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!
My son has been learning the guitar for over a year now at two different music schools. His progress was slow and lackluster at best. The school and teachers seemed to be just going through the motions and each time I talked to them they would just nod their heads and say "he's doing great." Progress was S-L-O-W... It wasn't until I tried these one on one private classes with Steve that my son showed immediate weekly progress and improvement. It really does make a big difference when you find a good teacher who actually knows how to teach and push a kid the right way. I'm thankful for meeting Steve and would highly recommend him as a teacher. He cares and likes teaching kids. You can't pretend with something like that... Thanks Steve!
Suzan Horrocks is a delight. I’ve been her student for more than 20 years. Before I started I was concerned that as an adult student with a very busy schedule I would be hassled for not always practicing as much as I should. I needn’t have worried. Ms. Horrocks is a very effective teacher with the patience of a saint who adapts for each student. She identifies your struggles quickly and communicates clearly the best method to help overcome them. I can’t praise Suzan highly enough. Besides being an accomplished pianist herself, she loves teaching and her enthusiasm is contagious.
I have been taking lessons from Electra for 3 years and I love her. She always makes my lessons fun and productive. She has gone way out of her way to help me prepare for auditions, no other vocal teacher has helped me this much. I love Electra and Soundcheck music school
