I have had four lessons with Juan Carlos Zepeda, with sessions divided into voice lessons and music skills (intervals, timing, etc.). Juan Carlos has a way of demystifying how the voice works (head and chest voice, placement, etc.). Each session clears something away and my understanding of the mechanics of it all is increasing. Juan Carlos has a beautiful singing voice, plays piano, and is both very kind and approachable. I highly recommend him.

Stella has been a wonderful teacher! I've never taken any sort of music lessons and was worried about starting lessons as an adult. I came across Stella after looking through many websites and am glad I did. Stella is extremely patient and encouraging throughout the sessions. I can't tell you how many times I mess up in an hour and she always tends to find something good to say about what I've done. I really enjoy taking lessons with her and would recommend her to anyone needing a supportive and knowledgeable teacher.

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.

Wow, Ann has been great! I've never taken any voice lessons before, and in fact, I'm a terrible singer! The reason why I wanted to take lessons was because I've always wanted to be able to sing at least one song decently. So, I was nervous going to my first lesson with a professional voice coach. She was very friendly, and put me at ease immediately. She casually taught me about the basics, and asked me a lot of questions to get to know me. Once she realized I had no prior experience, she got right to work! She made the lessons fun, but also full of new things to learn. I've only had a couple of lessons so far, but I'm already noticing a big difference!!! And I'm an absolute beginner! Sometimes she sings for me to show me techniques, and she blows me away with her singing! I can imagine that even professional singers would get a lot out of taking lessons from her! She notices even the tiniest of details about your voice and makes note and suggests ways to improve! I definitely recommend!

I started taking piano lessons from Miles a year ago as a total beginner. He's taught me how to read music, play classical music, and even play a few rock and blues songs as well! My favorite part of the lesson is when I get to improvise while Miles plays with me. The lessons are always so fun and inspiring.

Liz is an amazing music teacher and person. I started taking lessons with her when I started flute in the 5th grade and kept taking lessons wih her through the end of high school. The only reason I stopped was because I moved away to college. Liz is a true musician. She knows music and she knows how to teach. I was always impressed wih Liz's ability to make very complex music reachable. What I love so much about Liz is that she makes music personal. She asked what I was interested in and made sure that I got to learn the type of flute because that is what I was interested in. This is in contrast to some other music teachers I had when I played other instruments earlier in my life. I remember sometimes I would be tired from school or sports practice earlier, or maybe I had had a rough day, and would not want to go to my lesson. Of course I would go and not once did I regret it. I ALWAYS left lessons happy. Liz made music and lessons fun. She is truly invested in her students. She builds relationships with them. I graduated from college and a teacher myself now and I still talk to Liz to catch up because we are more than just student-teacher we are friends. I still think of Liz when I hear Christmas music or Flight of the Bumblebee.

Lynn's response connected best with my situation. It's all my fault for not following up. I travel extensively. As soon as I can establish a routine I will contact Lynn for piano lessons.

Seth is exactly what I was looking for. My boys love music and have learned a tremendous amount from Seth, ranging from taking a guitar solo at a live gig to taking the microphone and singing with gusto. My 8 year old takes private drum lessons for less than a year, and we are impressed by how many beats he now knows. It is clear that Seth loves what he does. He is skilled at relating to children and getting them excited to play music. He is fun and light and that carries over I'm his teaching style. We couldn't be happier and highly recommend him.

Julia is a gifted teacher who brings multidisciplinary experience to each student to customize the learning process. For someone just starting voice lessons for fun I had no idea where to begin, but Julia has worked with me to break music down to a level I could grasp and helped me set realistic stepping stones to each goal. Her lessons are a combination of no nonsense exercises and just plain creative fun, something only the best teachers can achieve, which she accomplishes through her work ethic and delightful sense of humor. If you are not sure where to begin, feel you are missing blocks of information in your understanding of music, or have an emotional block to voice work I recommend Julia because she can meet you where you are and help craft a path to where you want to go.

Inger is a phenomenal piano teacher. My daughter started taking lessons from Inger about a year ago. I am amazed at the progress she has made in such a short amount of time. In addition, Inger has many personal attributes that go beyond her knowledge of piano. In addition to being very hard-working, she is professional, enthusiastic, encouraging and effervescent. Her recitals are well-organized and enjoyable. Her positive attitude is wonderful for my adolescent daughter. I consider her to be a mentor to my daughter in addition to being a wonderful piano teacher. I can't imagine suggesting any improvement to Inger. I am thrilled that we found her.

My experience with Golden Gate Guitar Lessons has been nothing but positive. I really enjoy the convenience of having the lessons in my apartment, as opposed to having to travel all over creation. Nathan's a great guitarist, a good teacher and an extremely professional dude. He takes his job really seriously, does lots of prep work and wears a suit everyday. I highly recommend Nathan, I've tried other teachers and he's definitely the best.

I've taken lessons up with Kiyoshi for a while and can honestly say he knows what he's doing. He's highly knowledgable of a wide variety of styles, and will teach you exactly what you want to know. Kiyo is reasonably priced and is flexible to your schedule as well. 10/10 would recommend to anyone starting out or looking to broaden their musical horizon.
