Griffith is an awesome teacher! He's a pleasure to learn from and, most importantly, he's effective. The best compliment I can offer is that my friend (who's a professional drummer) asked for me to connect him with Griffith because he noticed such an improvement in my voice after 10 months of lessons.
Stephan provided exceptional service and expert advice to maintain my piano. I strongly recommend his services
Amazing and very talented man. Very knowledgable with his work and very kind. Very punctual and good pricing, HIGHLY recommend anyone to contact Jesus for their certification will go to your home and give you the lesson and certificate! Amazing job man thanks!!
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!!!
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.
She was very helpful and a lots of knowledge. I love to take more lessons.
Great teacher! Looking foreward to more lessons!
Been taking electric guitar lessons with Paul for a few months. Would recommend him to others: -Positive and constructive demeanor -Interested in the student -Easy to contact and flexible in scheduling -Has a basic curriculum, but is just as willing to work on specific areas or help you learn your favorite song -Solid practical knowledge of the guitar, backed up with proper music education
Brian is a caring and qualified pro musician. I'd recommend him for lessons and or performances.
Marquita is a great teacher with an amazing energy and presence that quickly makes you feel comfortable. Before the end of the lesson I was hitting notes I didn't know I could hit! I'm definitely looking forward to more lessons!
Excellent at explaining and makes sure you thoroughly know what tips hes giving you. Very knowledgeable, my playing skills have gone through the roof after taking lessons from Thomas!
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.
Mike was my first guitar teacher growing up. He's enthusiastic about teaching and lessons were always a blast--definitely the highlight of my week. Mike's very patient and his teaching style is super effective--we covered a lot of ground in our lessons. I'm currently pursuing a degree in Popular Music Performance at the University of Southern California, and since I've been here I've relied heavily on all the fundamentals that I learned with Mike. Couldn't be more grateful to have had him as a teacher growing up, and I highly recommend him!
We found Ms. Allison via Thumbtack and consider ourselves lucky. She is a patient and caring instructor. My 11 year old daughter loves her lessons. We started with her while we lived in Pasadena and have since moved but continue to drive over 40 miles to her home studio for lessons on Saturday for the past year. She is a talented musician and more importantly she is able to share her knowledge with our daughter.
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!

Maddy Reese is an excellent piano teacher! She is thorough, professional and encouraging, not only with regard to lessons, but recitals and NYSSMA prep. as well. My daughter benefited tremendously under Maddy's instruction.
Michael has been our guitar and voice teacher for several years and is excellent. Our son started playing and taking lessons when he was seven years old. From the beginning, Michael knew how to teach in a way that was fun and effective. He is talented, motivating, reliable and truly loves what he does.
I have 3 kids that have all taken piano lessons from Wendy. We started lessons from her in 2004 and are still taking lessons with her today. She makes piano fun for kids while challenging them at the same time.
Ms. Shahbazi is very patient, understanding, and skilled at teaching piano. I would recommend her for student support of all ages! She gave me a lesson while she studied at Chapman University and gave a lot of good tips about fundamentals and the piece we worked on.
Ryan is a fantastic teacher. Patient, a world of experience, kind...my children have loved their time learning from him! He has over 20 years experience and it shows!
