Paul is a great instructor, very friendly, very musicly knowledgeable. He's great with kids, our eight-year-old son really enjoys his music lessons with Paul. He understands his student's talent and designs lessons according to the student's skill-set. Our son learned a lot from Paul at a progressive pace. I would recommend him for any students that desire to progress artistically.

My experience has been very good.. At first I came in just wanting to sing songs but after taking a few weeks of lessons I have learnt so much more than I was expecting and really learned how to use my voice in the correct way!

We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!

I've had four lessons so far with Steve, and I am so pleased with how it is going! Steve is very skilled, patient, kind, punctual and professional. He responds to all my questions, and is very encouraging. He comes to my office in Pasadena to give me my lesson. I find that the biggest challenge in learning something new, is keeping my own internal critic under control as I struggle with note reading, and learn how to play the guitar. The fact that Steve is so patient and never critical helps to offset my internal critic. I have felt self doubting in the first two lessons, but by lesson 3, I am confident that if I keep practicing and working with Steve, eventually I will get it. Steve also shared info re his Taylor Mini guitar which is much smaller than the typical guitar, easier for me to play because the frets are smaller for smaller hands. I just bought my own Taylor Mini, a beautiful instrument which also inspires me to keep at it! Steve is also introducing some popular songs starting in lesson 3, which also makes it more enjoyable. This is one of the best decisions I have made for myself, and I am very happy that I was lucky to find Steve. He's great!

I was looking for a serious voice lesson teacher to fill in the gaps in my technique and help me grow as a singer (specifically in classical/operatic style). I found that teacher in Rena. She really hones in on voice technique in ways no other teacher has before, and within 1 year of training with her, I have already significantly improved my breathing, control, and sound. I highly recommend her for anyone wanting to become a better singer, in any style, and at any level.

Great instructor. He is very patient and has a very understandable way of explaining things. He did often forget to follow-through with sending things (music, lesson sheets) or bringing them to the next lesson. If it wasn't for that minor issue, he would definitely get 5 stars!

We decided to chose Brian for my teenage daughter's beginning guitar lessons due to his willingness to teach her the type of songs that she wanted. Right away he connected with her and her music. He taught her the theory behind playing guitar as well as teaching her the tricks and skills of how to play the guitar. His practices were enjoyable and not just rote. She learned very quickly and therefore stayed excited about learning. Brian was always very complementary and encouraging. Brian also helped us buy useful equipment like a tuner, etc. She always felt safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend Brian as a guitar teacher.

Debbie is an absolutely delightful woman. She has a beautiful voice and it is obvious she has many years of experience. I love how positive she is with my daughter. She is gentle and reassuring. This is exactly what my daughter needs so that feels confident in her voice and presence. We plan to continue lessons. I am so happy to have found her!

For the vocal lessons, I learned how to use my diaphragm, also I’m 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 I’m 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!

Kelly is a masterful musician and excellent pedagogue. She is extremely patient but also firmly committed to making sure you improve your skills. Most importantly she is a lovely person and very affable, a joy to be around. I highly recommend Kelly for your piano lessons whether you're starting from zero or you have 20 years of experience.

I have taken music lessons from several musicians who have always told me to work the minor pet atomic scales. The difference I discovered with Savage Music is that the lessons were geared to learning how to play overall and with other musicians. Savage played with me and opened the the roots of the music, the rhythms and timings, especially the base notes to follow the melodies on guitar. I was given my first song to play and perform the first day and another each week in progression. You start feeling what he is teaching. Thanks Lou. See you soon.

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.

Besides his immense talent, Luke is extremely easy to work with. He arrived early to our event, and was always on top of what was happening. His covers of popular songs were terrific, and many of our attendees expressed their excitement of having an actually GOOD musician. He is extremely kind and hard working, and his passion for music is clear through his work.

I am an adult student that has been learning the piano from Susan for about 4 months now, and I am enjoying every lesson thoroughly. Susan is an extremely patient teacher with great experience. I had about 2-3 years experience with western classical music on the piano before beginning my lessons with her, but still had difficulty in sight reading. Susan immediately identified my problem and suggested a method to correct it, and it is working extremely well! She also is very methodical in teaching and this helps tackle difficult pieces with utmost ease. I love the fact that she is very flexible, and gives importance to mastering a piece more than anything else. Loving every bit of my lessons with her!

Dominic is one of the most enthusiastic teachers I have ever had - he showed not only an interest in me and my level on the guitar, but also an enthusiasm for the instrument and music that was incredibly inspiring for the few lessons I took with him. Highly recommend - thanks so much, Dominic!
