I've hired other companies for singing lessons before, and they were either too focused on a classical singing mindset, (I play guitar and write alternative rock; I'm not trying to be Dmitri Hvorostovsky.) or they didn't seem to care much about my progress. It seemed like all they cared about was draining my wallet (*cough* corporate music store chains *cough*).
The first thing you'll notice about Elite Music is how friendly and professional they are. They have excellent customer service, and the option to have my lessons in my home for an entire hour at this price is almost too good to be true. If you're looking for value, this is the company you want to hire.
Another bonus is that you are not "locked in" to any kind of contract for a certain number of lessons. You take as many lessons as you want, when you want, and you pay as you go. There are no gimmicks or hidden fees involved with this.
They also have an incredibly fast response time with both phone calls and emails, and they will take the time to get to know you, so that they make sure that you're assigned an instructor who is compatible with exactly what you're looking for. You'll feel respected as a unique artist, instead of just another faceless customer.
Elite Music assigned me to Chelsea, who is similar to me in both musical taste and age, and has the experience, knowledge, and training needed to help me correct some problems I've had with pitch, breath control, tone, and range. She focuses on both the technical and artistic side of singing, and is able to adapt her lesson to fit my way of thinking. Basically, she gets me, and that's extremely rare for me when it comes to my history of collaborating with other musicians.
I'm already singing better, and I'm really excited to continue my lessons with Elite. I look forward to recording my original songs without needing pitch correction! LOL
