I've had three training sessions with Jonathan Howard. I tested other trainers while with him and found that he was the best. He's very organized in his lesson planning, he has a sharp eye for minor errors in form and execution, and he's challenging while simultaneously supportive. I look forward to continuing my training with him.

3 lessons already and singing has been much more fun! She is positive, honest, personal, knowledgeable, and a great resource! She's taught me to sing more naturally and how to perform and I'm glad I have the opportunity to learn from her! She certainly has a knack for developing this beautiful art in her clients! Thanks Jan!

Richard is an absolutely amazing voice instructor. He has a knack for describing the anatomy of a voice through metaphoric visuals that have helped me understand how to better use my voice. In the two month span of lessons I have had with Richard, I've noticed a marked difference in vocal range and strength. He has helped me tackle bad habits and develop new, healthier habits that truly free the voice. At such reasonable prices, you can't go wrong with choosing Richard.

Dr Stephanie is a wonderful, highly experienced teacher, who focuses on the fundamentals of voice and breathing and also individual voice style and quality. She is supportive, flexible with my difficult schedule, and always fun to work with! I would highly recommend her, especially to those looking for a more academic approach to voice lessons and those interested in classical and musical theater training.

As a french horn primary in college, I took a new position that also required me to teach primary school chorus. Rena worked intensively on teaching me basics of healthy vocal production. She tailored the lessons to my specific needs and I learned so much. Rena has lots of positive energy and very helpful insights... I highly recommend her!

Brian is professional, considerate and kind, could get you play any songs you pick super fast and complement lessons with necessary basic trainings. Has a variety of gears in his studio so no need for you to bring your own all the way there. Yes the charge is higher than many other tutors but for a smooth & enjoyable learning process it's always worth it. P.S. Brian could write down the music for guitar part accurately just by listening to the songs and immediately teach it to you! Highly recommend.

Noelle is an excellent tutor - very patient, but precise and focused. She has a great way of building the grammar foundations while expanding vocabulary and pronunciation. We are a mini group of adult learners in a professional environment and Noelle has been wonderful at meeting us at our respective levels and with an emphasis on our business needs. We would (and have!) recommended her classes.

I originally was looking for a trainer who could teach me self-defense for a trip I was going to be taking where these skills might be needed in case of emergency. I found Vinny on thumbtack and was immediately impressed with his resume. He made the effort to come all the way from Santa Clarita to my house which I appreciated. Just after one lesson, I could see a difference in myself. After just a few lessons, Vinny has taught me so much. I am now more confident in what I can do and in my safety. He has helped me to realize that with practice and skill, I can take on any challenge that I may come up against. At 16, it means a lot to know that I have taken certain pre-cautions to ensure my safety and well-being which causes me to have a peace of mind. I owe it all to Vinny and I highly recommend him as a trainer because every girl deserves to know that they have the power and right to learn and defend themselves.

Charlyn is extremely patient and offers lots of positive feedback and encouragement. My kids came a long way, fast, under her tutelage. I also take lessons from her and although I don't practice as much as I should, she is never judgmental or disappointed. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a teacher. She's got a great personality, easy to talk to, and all around a very nice person and great 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.

Max is a great guitar teacher. Right from the get-go he was flexible, friendly and seemed to get what I needed as a musician. I've had lessons in the past where it was either boring (music theory) or too scatterbrained for me to connect all the dots. Max has a way of zoning in on what you need specifically at the moment and tailoring the lesson toward that. I don't think you can find a better deal in Los Angeles.

Daniel has been giving my 10 year old son guitar lessons online for several months now and I couldn't be happier with our experience! The online lessons are extremely convenient for our busy lifestyle and Daniel's teaching technique has captured the attention of my busy body son. He's learned so much these past few months and he loves it! Thank you Daniel!

As a complete beginner at the flute, Dennis made me feel the task of approaching it was easy. Within a month or so I was happily making modest music on an instrument I had no idea how to play. I am still learning the upper register of the instrument and it is going much faster than I had expected. The cost of the lessons is very reasonable for the time spent with a professional working session and performance musician. He is very dedicated and reliable. My schedule is touch and go and he is always able to be flexible. Of almost equal importance is the ease of finding parking when I come for lessons. It is easy to get there as well. Enjoy the flute with Dennis. He is also a woodwind multi instrumentalist and a good guy in general. -Aaron Finley

I have worked with Bob on various levels. First, Bob provided me with private guitar lessons for several years. Bob made the learning experience fun and enjoyable. I was able to learn and play the kind of music that I wanted to play. Bob is also very patience (staying with me for so many years is a true testament to this!). My youngest son Michael also took private guitar lessons from Bob. On a more professional level, Bob and his band performed at my oldest son's (Bobby) wedding receipion. It was a "blast" with all of the guests dancing and singing. I actually received a call years later from an attending guest asking for Bob's contact information for their wedding reception (obviously they had very fond memories of the event and Bob's music). If and when my 2 remaining kids get married, I can guaranty Bob will be going the music. He makes an event a real party!!!
