I've been taking voice lessons with Dave for almost a year now, and it's one of the best decisions I've made. I've loved singing my entire life, but I've always felt like I wasn't good enough. It turns out I just needed to tweak my technique. I've definitely improved immensely over the past year, and others (including professional singers) have noticed and complimented me on it as well when I've sang at gigs. I've learned effective warm up techniques, how to control my voice, how my posture and mouth placement are important for my vocals as well, and so much more. He's also very encouraging and patient. I definitely wouldn't sound the way I do today without him. He's given me the confidence to look into performing more in this new year. I'm more motivated than ever to see where my voice can take me and very excited to continue working with him. I was also lucky enough to record a song with him and was able to see what an amazing producer he is as well! Anyone looking for a great, knowledgeable, experienced vocal instructor and producer; look no further! Dave's your man!
Patrick is an amazing teacher, one who gave me the confidence to continue with singing after I'd worked at it on my own for years. Taking the Vocal Assessment showed me specifically where I needed work, after which targeted exercises have helped me to improve in those areas. Since last winter, my friends have acknowledged a noticeable uptick in my performances, which I attribute in large part to Patrick's teaching and guidance. Beyond exercises for my voice, he's also been a friend and challenged me to define my expectations as a vocalist. Everyone interested in improving their voice, even if only through the Assessment, should take lessons here!!
David an amazingly skillful and inspiring teacher. I never imagined I would enjoy singing lessons this much. And he is just an all around great guy.
I find the guitar lessons I have with Dom are very comprehensive and personable. He is very in detail and thorough. He makes sure that I know everything there is to know about playing guitar, before I attempt to play anything that's too advanced for my level. Location is relatively easy to get to, venue is comfy and classes are affordable.
Mara is incredible! She is extremely professional, always early for lessons, and so accommodating with scheduling. Her lessons include full body warmup prior to the vocal warmup, and she really trains you to grow as a singer by using proper technique. She is also fun and funny, and the hour flies by in a breeze. I highly recommend her!!
Raul is FANTASTIC! He is very much interested in catering to your specific learning style and keying into what you want to get out of the lessons. He loves questions and is full of patience and a great sense of humor. I highly recommend Raul!
Rae de la Cretaz is a magician! I walked into my first lesson with her seven short months ago, after many years of longing to take singing lessons and a year of procrastinating. She put me right at ease, and I got to experience her incredible store of knowledge, energy and outright passion for the human voice. When I came in, I had what I described as a "pleasant" voice, no better, no worse. I had been singing (mostly to myself) for my entire life, and for the last 18 years with a choir. The change in this short amount of time still surprises me. Sometimes when I sing during my lesson, I hardly recognize that it's me singing. There's a richness that I would have admired in others, but never thought would be possible for me. People whose opinions I respect have come forward and remarked favorably about my voice, something I didn't experience before. In the short time that I've been taking lessons with Rae, I've learned so much, and look forward to coming to each lesson. She is a treasure!
Pamela is super sweet and have a ton of great knowledge, advise, and experience in both technique, vocal health, and working on material. I enjoy my lessons every time!
David has been helping me brush up on my theory studies as well as specialized instruction as I learn a new instrument. It's been very enjoyable and an enlightening experience - after only three lessons I'm really seeing the effects of his instruction on my playing. I definitely recommend him to anyone looking to study music, regardless of style, instrument or genre.
Serge is an extremely skilled top notch coach and amazing instructor that genuinely cares about his students. His training sessions are very challenging and rewarding. My strength and endurance levels have greatly improved in such a short time since training with Serge. He has patience and will take the time to go over moves as many times as you need, in a supportive and encouraging way. You will sweat, train hard and learn a lot from each lesson. My training sessions were by far the BEST that I've ever experienced. What marks a phenomenal instructor is his ability to teach in a particular way that impacts every aspect of a students life, and that is what Serge has done for me and I'm truly thankful. Overall, I would highly recommend Serge to all without any hesitation. Josette-
Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.
After years of studying classical voice and still having technical difficulty, an accomplished singer suggested I study with Christine Moore, who is now teaching me to sing more fully and freely. While former voice teachers were well intentioned, professional, had good reputations, and taught me vocal concepts for over 35 years in weekly lessons, I continued to struggle with the passaggio and lowering my larynx in the higher range. Christine immediately understood my vocal issues and, most importantly, within a very short period of time was able to teach me techniques that have dramatically improved my vocal production. My husband and I are amazed at how much my voice has improved since I started studying with Christine only one and a half years ago. One important concept that Christine introduced me to that previous voice teachers didn’t explain is how to sing with proper vocal cord closure. Apparently, I was over-blowing breath through my vocal cords and wondering why I never had enough breath to sing a substantial aria. Christine also taught me the concept of “appoggio” (breath support) and I’m finally feeling a stronger foundation of lower body breath support that gives me the freedom to release my shoulders, head, and jaw to sing freely. Improved cord closure and breath control is helping me to produce a much larger voice than I ever thought I had. In fact, prior to learning these concepts I thought I was a mezzo-soprano and it is now very clear that I have a fairly large soprano voice. What I have learned about Christine is that she takes her work very seriously and expects her students to do the same. She has never canceled a lesson, chooses challenging and appropriate repertoire, arranges student recitals, teaches summer workshops in Italy, continues to sing professionally herself, and encourages her students to set goals and to perform. Additionally, she is a genuinely nice person, not the prima donna type you might expect of someone with so much talent and experience as a performer and a teacher. Honestly, I’m not someone that enjoys writing (I’d rather sing) but I wrote this review about Christine Moore because she really made a difference in my singing. I can only imagine how my voice would have developed if I had started training with a voice teacher like Christine earlier in my life. Maybe someone reading this will find out!
Christopher was awesome! I did weekly private guitar lessons with him over Google Hangouts, and felt like I really learned a lot. You can tell he really cares about his students and puts a lot of extra effort into making sure you're getting the most out of your lessons.
I bought my brother-in-law 3 lessons as a holiday gift. He thinks Josh is great and now he will buy himself some more lessons. Josh has proved to be a great teacher!
I took lessons from Jimi for string bass and later for guitar. Through his lessons, I learned how to do more than just read notes on a page. I learned the other important skills of improvising and jamming with others. If I ever had a problem, Jimi would notice and help me work through it. I'm now able to jam out to jazz music on bass and guitar, and it's all thanks to Jimi.
working with sean was a great experience. as a beginner adult student, he was always very patient with me and understanding of my busy schedule. i found his lessons to be challenging and informative while at the same time being really fun. he never made learning piano feel like a chore. i learned a lot, not just how to play the piano, but also about music theory--the guy reall knows his stuff! i'd highly recommend sean to anyone at any level and was sad to find out he was leaving the bay area.
Ive had many music teachers over the years and I can confidently say that Stelios is among the best. He is extremely passionate and knowledgable about music, and genuinely enjoys digging into any and all material that you want to learn. Whether you want to learn a new song, work on your own songwriting, or dive into music theory, Stelios is always attentive and ready with encouragement and constructive feedback. He can very quickly figure out how to play a song after listening to it once or twice, and can always break it down so that its easy to learn. If youre interested in songwriting, Stelios often accompanies you and will provide feedback that fosters both growth and independence. He is able to pinpoint both your strengths and your areas for improvement, and tailors his lessons to meet your needs as a student and a musician. Stelios makes his students feel comfortable immediately with his warm, sincere personality and his hospitality. It is clear that Stelios truly loves music of all varieties, and truly loves to teach and learn. These qualities, among many others, make him a rare and excellent guitar teacher.
Mattie takes the time to get to know his students and tailors the lesson to them. My son looks forward to his lesson every week.
