Mindy was so great with our son in helping him with his singing. Not having had any voice training, and having to sing a solo in a play, he was very anxious about taking voice lessons. After the first lesson he was very happy and thrilled with Mindy's approach to the voice training. She was patience, very insightful and gave him some great techniques to use to stay within his range and meet some notes that he had to hit. She even gave him pointers on how to combat stage fright. Our 14 year old son gives her 5 stars too and that's saying a lot. We would highly recommend Mindy for voice training!
I've been taking voice lessons with Sarah for about 6 months. I chose Sarah because of the quality and detail of her initial responses, as well as her obvious enthusiasm for teaching. I came to her as a hopeless cause in his mid-thirties who could never hit a note. Sarah and her teaching have shown me that I *do* have a voice in there and that I *can* do this. Her techniques and patience have helped me open up my range and start building tone and charecter to my voice. As a teacher, Sarah is professional and fun, patient and caring. She's always happy to try and explain concepts in different ways to help with my understanding. Everything we do in our lessons feels tailored completely to my voice, my issues and my goals. I'm not normally much of a reviewer, but I want to see Sarah succeed and I'm sure there's many of you out there wanting to take the first step into learning how to sing and unsure of where to start. I strongly recommend you contact Sarah and tell her your goals and listen to what she has to say.
The best way I can describe Liz Hodge is as my “Go-To” for overcoming my biggest vocal challenges, writing compelling business speeches that sound like they should be on TED, and making a difference for my leadership team. As the CEO of Promote Her Business, my business speeches and vocal communication significantly affect my ability to get leads, opt-ins, and to have people want to follow-up with our membership and advanced networking programs. Liz has helped me transform my voice into something I like to hear, am proud of, and have confidence will bring me and PHB more business. In addition, as President of our SV Chapter, I take very seriously who educates my leadership team -- of over 10 people -- on the best practices in speaking and vocalizing today. Liz did such a great job giving a mini group workshop to the women entrepreneurs and male allies on our team. And most impressively, Liz’ teaching is so practical that it lives on … my leaders are still referring to what Liz taught us before they speak in front of the community. Josephine “Jos” Hanan, Founder/CEO, Promote Her Business
Though I have been singing since age 9 in lessons and onstage, working with Stephen in the past year has really launched me to the next level, and helped immensely in the pursuit of my music career. His lessons, fine ear and extensive experience help me to see beyond my limits as a singer. He is accessible and enthusiastic as a teacher, and encourages the same qualities and focus in his students. I have become more technically apt, confident, and excited about my music career thanks to Stephen Bigger.
I gave Ben a call for a surprise voice lesson for my mom...Ben was quick to reply, easy to get ahold of and very accommodating when it came to scheduling and traveling for the lesson. We planned on he and my mom singing some show-tunes and songs from fun musicals! Ben was an amazing instructor, coach and duet partner! My family all met him and loved his enthusiasm & talents! We are most definitely planning on hiring him again! Thanks Ben! XO
Sarah participated in the St. John's choir and also took private vocal lessons with Emily to improve her singing and confidence. We found Emily to be fun, responsible, engaging, and we saw great improvements in Sarah's abilities during her time with Emily. Additionally, I will emphasize that Emily has great skill in working with a variety of personalities, including expert skills in working with special needs kids.
I enjoyed how Alison interacted with my children in teaching the guitar and piano.not only was she professional, knowledgable, but she made the lessons enjoyable. My children look forward to their lessons & I would reccomend her wholeheartedly
I have been taking voice lessons from heather for over two years. When I began I wasn't sure I could sing at all. Heather has helped me immensely with expanding my range, rhythm, carrying notes, style and most importantly connecting with the music emotionally. She approaches vocal coaching with kindness but has gently pushed me to be new levels I never thought I would reach. I often get complements on my voice from friends other musicians and that makes me smile. Learning to sing has been one of the most freeing experience of my life and I am so grateful to Heather for all her expertise and encouragement.
I couldn't have asked for a better teacher, even as a low-baritone male in my 20's that has never taken singing lessons before. The voice training is universal and spans all genres, so don't worry. VERY enjoyable to learn from and I improved every single week because I was challenged every week (which is what you need!). I still practice the lessons & tips Cecilia has given to me and always will. You want a highly skilled who will tell you the truth when training, but who has the empathy to make the process a fun one. I can't recommend Cecilia enough!
Aaron gave beginning alto saxophone lessons to my 9-year old son a few years ago. Aaron was excellent at reading and responding to my son's feelings (he is very sensitive and can get frustrated easily), making the lessons fun, and encouraging creativity and love of music instead of just learning the notes. My son is in the Middle School band now and still loves playing. Thank you Aaron!
I took voice lessons with Sarah for quite a long time. I was barely trained in jazz vocals. Sarah is a very lovable, ambitious person. Great teacher. She always encouraged me and was very knowledgeable about all things singing. :) I grew so much through our lessons and I still practice her vocal techniques to this day.

I teach a no non-sense approach to singing with the emphasis on technique, breathing, diction, and performance ability. I have over 20 years experience as a teacher and more than 30 years of performing as a singer. My students learn from the original classical techniques, than they take that knowledge and use it to work on there own music. I have students from every style: Broadway, Rock & Roll, Country, R&B, Blues and Classical. Every style we can work and use the same diction practices and techniques, and bring out the best in your voice. I have students ranging in ages from 7 - 60 years young. I have students that in one years time, have won awards for most improved musician to getting main parts in musicals. Give me a call, or email me. Start singing the right way today.
Because not only have I been in the music business my whole life, but I am also a Medical Assistant. This gives me an advantage over most of my competition. I am not only teaching from a classical technique, but I am teaching my students from the inside out, helping them to understand their instrument fully.
I am extremely professional and I focus on teaching, first and before anything, the basic concepts of music theory to ensure the student (whether a child or an adult) has the necessary tools to approach any type of music. I've seen in many music studios that music teachers rely on imitation rather than knowledge, as a result, the student does not acquire the necessary abilities and grows dependent on the teacher.
If you want to learn to play an instrument or sing, or take your playing to the next level; I'm your guy. I have 13 years of playing and teaching experience and will share the right steps and tools to make you a great musician. I provide lessons for sax, piano, voice, guitar, etc.
We offer a well-rounded & fun approach. Areas of study: technical study (proven exercises that work), ear training (learn to play by ear), repertoire development (songs), improvisation , live performance, recording techniques, style development. Our students have excelled greatly throughout our 25 years of teaching. Many have continued playing and become professional musicians. Many have been inspired to pursue higher education (ie: college degree).
We offer artist development, singing lessons, and recordings. We have been in business for 8 years; we just had to leave the big facility. Now, we're offering services from home 'til we relocate to a new building.
I have been teaching voice for over 30 years. I have taught high school through later adult years. I have students who are singing professionally around the area and students who desire to improve their singing. I am interested in having students who wish to work each week. I have been a professional singer for over 50 years. I have also been a musical director for several musicals in the Bay area as well as in Summer Stock and Los Angeles. My job is to teach singers how to be self-sufficient by giving them tools that are lifelong.
My studio is a 5-day-a-week, one-stop shop where both students and/or adults may rent, purchase and/or repair their string instruments as they attend lessons at the same Heaney Violins location. I teach Suzuki method piano, violin, viola, guitar, beginning cello, and recorder beginning from ages 2 1/2 upwards. Voice is also taught and other instruments including ukelele, mandolin, banjo and harmonica. South Indian karnatak violin is also an option. Biannual recitals are held closely to the Mountain View studio location, and monthly group classes are also encouraged along with weekly instruction. Younger Suzuki students must be accompanied by parents who will learn along with their child how to play their instrument of choice. Typically, students enroll a semester at a time, except for summer sessions which are open enrollment periods.
