Griffith Frank is wonderful teacher compassionate yet demanding he doesnt let me give up. I came to him with some bad habits stemming from lack of proper training and lack of confidence. He explains until I understand the concept in my mind and body and can properly execute the technique / exercise. I look forward to my lessons and singing him my songs (with emotion, of course). I am making great strides with Griffith , and my confidence is blossoming.
I requested singing lessons and received 6 quotes rangers big from $36/hr to $100/hr. I eliminated 3 of them just based on the message they wrote to me and their reviews or lack there of. My passion is indie rock and Jan does not fit the profile of a rocker and she was vocally trained as an opera singer. However, her reviews were positive, she was priced in the middle, her message to me was pertinent and once I called and spoke to her I was sold. I didn't bother contacting the other two quotes I was interested in. Needless to say, my hunch was right and I had my first lesson last week. It went incredibly well. She amazed me. I am a song writer wanting to improve my vocals so I can work indecent from hiring a singer. I showed he some of my recorded originals and within seconds she knew what I had to improve to make my voice fit the song better. We changed the key a whole step, she had me pronounce some of the words differently and she gave input in to what could improve for the song instrumentally. She started showing me current artists and what I could take from their particular songs to inspire some rhythmic changes. she had suggestions on where to go and present my music to sale for commercial/tv/advertising. She had big picture advice on where to focus my energies. I couldn't believe what we packed in to a one hour rehearsal. She sat at her piano and taught me vocal exercises and explained to me how I could improve on them with what I call tricks to break certain bad habits I have formed. I can't wait to see her next week. She can totally rock!!!
I had joined a very established win in group and was so nervous about getting back to singing quality since it had been so long! I started weekly singing lessons with Stephanie and it was awesome! She went right to my needs with scales and feeling more confident about my changed voice. She utilized our time well and totally gave me great confidence as I progressed. She even thru a few fun songs of my favorite R n' R songs to make it fun. She is an outstanding musician and talented woman. Her teaching skills are wonderful, especially for someone like me so out of touch in singing with a choral group. I felt so good about myself! I highly recommend her.
New to vocal lessons my goal was to learn about my voice and the skills necessary to sing the genre of music relative to me, I struck gold when I found Richard. Richard's expertise and experience has allowed me to find my voice and understand how to use it. I feel much more confident about singing after each lesson, with Richard I'm always on my way to reaching my goals. Great coach great person!
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!
Marquita is such a joy to work with. I always looked forward to going to the lesson. I've been singing for a long time and Marquita has helped me to understand breathing exercises on a very deep and profound level. My confidence as a singer is getting stronger but not only as a singer as a human being too! Thank you so much Marquita.
By far the most amazing vocal lessons ever. Immediate success, Radina is a very friendly teacher. Great techniques and very well explained, for me as a beginner exactly what I was looking for! I would recommend one full lesson a week.
I have been having singing lessons from Mia Milan for the last couple of months. She a supportive and encouraging teacher and her kind and caring nature has allowed me to improve my confidence in performing in front of a crowd. She tailors her lessons to me and provides constructive feedback when needed. I can't recommend her enough!
Going into my lessons with Paul, I had no idea what to expect. I'd never had voice lessons before and my voice had been an area of insecurity for me my whole life. Thankfully, Paul coaches in a way that put me,a novice, at great ease. Even after just two lessons with Paul, my acting coach noticed a difference in my vocal quality. I was able to realize how I had developed a habit of incorrect breathing and posture and how it was effecting my every day life. He not only provided me with greater skill as a performer, but with better overall habits for speaking and carrying myself in day to day life.
Camille is Awesome! From the initial search, she replied very quickly. Upon our first meet and greet; she was very open, honest and easy to talk to. I immediately got the sense that she genuinely enjoys singing and teaching, and that she cares about her students, their goals, and achieving those goals. I brought a CD of music with vocal techniques that I would like to be able to do and recordings of myself, so she would know what she was in for. She took the job anyway. She is very supportive and encouraging, and I have already seen (heard) vast improvement in my vocals after 4 weeks. (I practice constantly while driving) I still have a ways to go but I'm really looking forward to future lessons and learning what I can actually achieve. You won't be disappointed once you start tutelage in the Van Niekerk Vocal Studio.
Bonnie is incredibly easy to talk to, and explains the technical aspect of singing and sounds in an easy way for me to understand. I’m excited to have her as a coach
I wanted a teacher that could work with an older adult who not had piano lessons since childhood. After many years, I wanted to challenge myself by getting back into piano and I wanted to bring music back into my life. I was a bit nervous about making the commitment and about the time investment that would be required. I also didnt know a good teacher so I asked around. Howards name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howards approach is not the conventional one that I experienced as a child. He presents many types of approaches and uses lots of tools and techniques to build your skills and understanding of the structure of music. Now, Im stretching myself to learn, remember and apply these skills and it feels really good! I actually enjoy practicing my piano. Now thats a testimony to Howards influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. Im confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.
First lesson was incredible. Can't wait for my next lesson!
Felice is absolutely amazing! I have always been hesitant about the idea of taking voice lessons because of how nervous I get when having to sing in front of others. Felice has been able to calm my nerves and boost my confidence in my singing abilities. Plus she is very patient with me and puts up with all my quirkiness! :) I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Spending every Thursday evening taking music lessons with Leah was one of the best parts of my childhood. I began taking piano lessons when I was 6 years old and continued to take them until I graduated high school. Growing up, I learned so much from Leah about music theory, playing techniques, and life in general. Leah is one of the friendliest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take music lessons. She's supportive, creative, and constantly smiling. If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would!
Bryan was very understanding and enthusiastic with my goals. He's friendly, personable, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. In the first lesson he had great informal assessments to see where I stand musically so we can go forward from there. I look forward to continuing to work with Bryan.
Sim is an accomplished pianist and music teacher!! She loves music and it shows! She's not only passionate about making music, she's also passionate about helping others! Her patience and encouragement makes each class fun and rewarding!! I can't wait for my next class!
Joey is a fantastic and understanding teacher. He had me singing in a way I didn't realize was possible. I also am taking piano lessons from him, and Joey understands my goals and style. A+
Michael is LA’s best kept secret. My voice was starting to give out trying to record an album when my producer suggested I go see Michael. I've had lessons before that weren't helpful, but I was desperate and decided to give it a try. Next I know, the guy's got me on the floor doing stretches and bending over doing breathing exercises. I'm thinking why am I not singing? Give me an exercise at least! So once I'm back in the studio, my voice tiring out, my producer asks me what Michael said, so I showed him...well, it worked! My voice opened back up and I was able to get through the entire recording session. Michael understood what I needed better than I did.
My daughter is very happy with Pierson as her piano teacher. It is a pleasure working with him. Has the right approach to make the lessons fun and engaging.
I appreciate that Shane does not offer one-size-fits-all lessons. He's been responsive about the ways I learn best, and he comes at the skill we're tackling with tips from a variety of directions. I find his feedback and demonstrations (via Zoom during our lessons) clear and helpful. And I appreciate his resources (e.g. drills/scales), respectful use of time, supportive approach and ability to make it normal that we at first struggle in the process of internalizing better technique. We are a good fit despite being on opposite coasts!
