    So far so good!
    So far my daughter loves it. She has been trying to sing since she was 3 years old. Mrs. Pia is making her aware of things that she could change to get better.

    Very fast response on initial inquiry. Good prices for private lessons. Pia is very knowledgable and engaged in her students endeavors. She communicates frequently about auditions, camps, scholarships, etc. to her students.

    Haven't really had any individual lessons yet. Just initial meeting and then he's had to sit and watch others sing.

    Hello Brent, I am sorry you don't seem to be satisfied with what little Joshua has had a chance to experience at the studio. Sessions have just began a couples of weeks ago and I was very clear that we started with 2 master classes of which Joshua missed one. I also went over this with your wife and it is listed in the agreement we reviewed together which is in the front of the binder Joshua received. It is a shame that Joshua missed the second session because the day he missed was the day where the peers that he is so longing to get involved with where here. There is much to be learned from observing what performers do right and not so much, how they view themselves, how they view their performances and the performances of others. About 10 of the kids that were here where new to the studio and they all found these sessions very valuable as all students have for as long as I been teaching. There is a necessary mind set to singing that goes beyond technique and that is what allows and individual to stand in front of a group and demand their attention through a performance. Much of this is learned by listening and realizing that almost everybody has the same concerns about being on stage. In addition, master classes also give the studio a chance to meet each other and to collaborate in a supportive way and to learn to take and give supportive criticism. Please let me clarify again, Joshua had only been here once as part of the studio when this posted. His first private lesson was last week and all this was covered when we did the enrollment. Your son has an amazing vocal instrument! I am sure that, with my years of experience as a vocal coach and with the success I have had, I can help him achieve his music goals as long as he is willing and open to it. If you have any questions, please let me know and I will be glad to answer them. My direct email is TheUgarteStudio@TheUgarteStudio.com. Please feel free to contact me at any time. Sincerely, Pia Ugarte

    Pia goes above and beyond with each of her students. We were with her for several years and I love how she was always very concerned with vocal health. Very professional and hands on.

    I met Pia Ugarte in 2011 searching online for a good voice teacher for my two daughters in the Atlanta area. I did not realize at that time that I was going to find the best teacher we could possibly dream of!! Pia has not only become their teacher, but their best friend and mentor. She has such an experience in what she does, she knows the workings of the voice inside and out, and she has the special gift of knowing how to expertly share her technique and knowledge with all of her students with love and care. Because Pia is a singer an performer herself, she is also very knowledgeable about the business, what is expected of a singer in the audition room and how to challenge her students to reach their whole potential on stage. During these three years with her I have witnessed unbelievable improvements in each one of the students of the studio. I cannot fully thank her in words how amazing has been for my daughters to have such a talented teacher!! Thank you Pia!!

    My daughter has been working with Pia for the last 3 years and we couldn't say enough wonderful things regarding our experience. Pia Ugarte is extremely talented at teaching musical theory and practice to children while making it fun at the same time.

    Ms. Pia is a phenomenal vocal coach whether you're looking to ace a college audition or just become a better singer. I highly recommend Pia because she is both a mentor and a teacher. I have her to thank for my stage presence, healthy singing techniques, and my growth as an artist.

    Pia is a true professional and is extremely knowledgable about vocal performance. She recently recorded my daughter singing "God Help the Outcasts". It only took a couple hours to do the monologue and the song. Pia knows exactly what to tell her to get the best sound quality from her. Pia always goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that each individual feels satisfied and accomplished with their work. My daughter has worked with Pia for almost a year on a weekly basis. She is kind, encouraging, and patient while guiding them with an accomplished hand. She is on time and the quality of her work ranks far above any others we have ever come in contact with.

    One of the best vocal teachers out there. You can see dramatic improvements from her students after just a few lessons, and the way she truly cares about the wellness and success of her students is incredible. She goes above and beyond for every student.
