Griffith is spectacular. I grew up doing theatre and taking vocal lessons and never had a handle on how to release my voice or fully handle my range. He has completely transformed how I sing and helped eradicate fear and insecurity around my voice. His ability to hear exactly what is going on in your body that may inhibit your vocal expression is amazing. He can hear me strain out a note and know precisely how to communicate what I can do to relieve the tension. I remember recording our first lesson and playing it back for someone years ago. I wailed out a song atrociously and then Griff gave me a few pointers and then sounds I’d never heard came out as I sang the song again. Also, Griff is respectful, honorable, funny, kind, and generous. Just a really great guy. I get to enjoy his company and have wonderful coaching all at once.

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!!!
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!
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.
I graduated with a degree in theatre and have always wanted to sing. I've toured with my dad and have taken voice lessons with many teachers over the years. Rickie Gole is the teacher I have been looking for my whole life. When I first tried her class all I knew about her was that her students (who I went to school with) were always getting cast and hired. They had beautiful voices and I wanted so badly to sing like them. Since taking lessons with her for about a month now I have discovered something else. I am finding a new voice that is completely mine. I leave her classes more confident, happier, and freer. My biggest obstacle so far is trying not to get emotional because my voice is shocking me. It's how I've always wanted to sing and never believed I could. I completely don't recognize it. Her genuinely warm and encouraging presence makes me unafraid to make mistakes and try new things and because of that I'm singing like I never have in my life. Thank you Rickie.
James is amazing. He really teaches you how to appreciate your talent and be patient with yourself. I had him for guitar and voice lessons. Really great place to grow musically .
I have been on hit national shows as a guitar player and even sang backup without much problems because I could hide behind the other singers. However singing lead petrified me, even after taking some vocal lessons from various teachers. But after working with Marquita I was blown away when I was hitting notes that I never thought that I could hit as well having unbelievable control over my voice which I thought was impossible. The greatest moment was when I actually felt it was an instrument during band rehearsal. And I was even adding another layer to the song above guitars and the creativity exploded. She's also great with teaching to use the voice for stage and screen actors.
AMAZING!!!! She ROCKS!!! I have been playing and singing for about 6 years. I wanted a teacher to get my singing to the next level... And Jamie delivered! She is so much more than a Vocal/ Violin Instructor. She takes the time to make sure I understand not only the Vocal side of things but also the Theory behind it. She has taught me more about who I am as a musician and the goals I want to attain than I could have ever done by myself. I highly recommend Jamie for lessons and Musical performances. She is a fantastic person to be be around and to work with.
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.
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!

I have taken voice lessons with Dena Murray myself, as well as observed her work with many other students. Dena is a wonderful teacher who combines technical mastery of her subject with natural intuition to help students overcome any obstacles. Highly recommended!
Base is reliable, punctual, and jumps right in when he arrives! He is focused on the student and pushes them (even if shy) with kindness and humor to grow and learn. My daughter is 12 and really enjoying her vocal lessons with him. We think he's great!!
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+
Been taking Guitar/Vocal lessons with Michael for 7 years. Not only is he a skilled Musician and Teacher, but he is also an exemplar and will push you out of your comfort zone.
We miss Davie. Great piano and drum teacher. Enthusiastic and fun. Your child will love lessons with Davie.
If you want singing lessons from someone who is confident and you are not afraid to try singing with a different approach, you definitely will want to have lessons from Michael Jones.
Bennett has an extraordinary ability to zero in on his student's skills and musical affinities... He has a nerdy, highly precise knowledge of the instrument, of guitar technique and of music history... Months ago I would barely sing with anyone else in the room, and didn't know how to play guitar. This morning I played guitar and harmonized with Bennett on a Stones song. Take music lessons with Bennett - only good can come of it.
I always enjoy our French lessons!
I've always wanted to try piano lessons and came across Shannon Hunt Music online- and decided to give it a try! I have always wanted to learn to play and Shannon is a great place to start. She is fun, warm, easy to learn from, and there is never a dull moment. We are 5 lessons in and I am already feeling at home at the keyboard. Would highly recommend her to anyone!!
Great vocal coach! Helped to understand so many things in just a few sessions. Thank you, Ivan!
Zach has taught our daughter for 2 years. She has learned more than we can every imagine in this period of time. Not only has she become a more skilled guitar player and vocalist, she has come to love songwriting. Even more important, Zach has coached our daughter through several important events and encouraged her as she stretched herself by musically and personally. By example, he has helped transform her from a simple guitar student taking weekly lessons to a musician eager to do more, try more and stretch beyond what she thought we limits. Even more important to us, Zach has help nurture a self-confidence that can only come from learning from a vibrant, enthusiastic, talented coach and artist. He has forever impacted our daughter's life and will be a part of her story for years to come.
