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.

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!!!

Singing is something I have always wanted to learn how to do but have never known how to go about it. I started working with Richard about 4 months ago and in this short time I have already seen amazing results. I came to him with absolutely no singing experience. I couldn't even match a note in my first few lessons with him. He has been able to get me to begin using my singing voice in such a short amount of time. I would recommend Richard to anyone I know looking to learn how to sing. He is a great teacher and someone who makes learning how to sing fun and exciting!

Rena is an excellent vocal instructor. This is the first time I've taken voice lessons, and I really appreciated first learning about my instrument with excersies that broadened my vocal range and focused on proper breathing techniques. She holds a wealth of knowledge and experience on all things voice. Lastly, she is patient but knows when to push her students to achieve their potential.

Brian has a great attitude and is very experienced guitar player himself in different genres. It was my first time picking up a guitar (I had 0 experience with anything music-related) and just in 5 lessons I can play "Seven Nation Army." What more can you ask for?

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.

Paul is absolutely amazing. He's a great teacher and a great person. He individualizes every lesson for every person. He has fun and truly enjoys playing and teaching. I've only been taking lessons for a few months and the difference is incredible. Is never picked up a guitar when I started and now I'm (almost) playing bar chords and finger picking with confidence. I can't imagine the amount of one he's spent listening to any song I asked and writing out the part just for me. I can not recommend him enough, if you want to work hard and learn not just what and how to play but the theory behind it all then this is the guy for you. He's smart and will give you an complete understanding of guitar and music theory which will allow you to excell at playing not just guitar, but any instrument you choose to pick up.

Steve is a great, patient and understanding teacher. He is a tremendous guitar player who has the answers to all my questions. It's obvious that he's a trained and talented musician. I already knew how to read music and Steve has been showing me where the notes are on the fretboard, chord shapes and we've started talking about theory. He's also teaching me through online lessons and it feels like he's in the room with me. I'm excited to continue my lessons with Steve and am looking forward to the competent musician that I will become!

Max is an amazing guitarist. But more than that he's a patient and observant instructor. I've been playing on and off for 30+ years and Max was able to find that sweet spot... He's got me working on some fundamentals in a way that has me excited to be taking lessons again. And he's a really nice guy, too! Lucky to have found him.

Ray has been tutoring my daughter for over 3 months now and we have seen a great improvement in her math grade. I had tried three tutors before I found Ray and I am so thankful that we did. I explained to him that my daughter was having a difficult time in her Algebra class and that I was having a hard time explaining it, as it is the new common core method. I mentioned to him that my daughter is very shy and I wasn't sure he would get her to talk much but to my surprise, he really has done a great job in getting her to talk through each math problem. He engages my daughter and encourages questions especially when he suspects she isn't really sure on a particular math problem. I can't give enough praise to Ray; he is always on time and gets right to work, he never leaves unless he's sure my daughter understands the math lesson. My family and I are very pleased with the progress my daughter has made and we would highly recommend Ray to any parent that needs a math tutor.

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 didn’t know a good teacher so I asked around. Howard’s name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howard’s 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, I’m 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 Howard’s influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. I’m confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.

My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.
