Bobby A. Los Angeles, CA

As a young performer I won various competitions in piano performance while also participating in several choirs. I'm versed in solo and group performance, musicality, and work as a performance and vocal coach as well.

About Bobby

I'm a piano teacher, pianist, composer, songwriter, singer, and lifetime music lover in beautiful Los Angeles, California. I began playing piano at age 7 and was forever smitten with learning music!

I progressed rapidly and by high school I was winning multiple competitions and talent shows and performed as a featured artist with local youth orchestras in Corpus Christi, Texas. When I was 16, I began teaching piano and music theory to my peers and to kids. Then it was off to Austin where at the University of Texas I studied composition (piano principal under Dr. Betty Mallard) and wrote and arranged for keys (of course) as well as voice, strings, and choral groups I sang in.

I'm a fun, laid-back person and my teaching style reflects that. However I thrive on doing things ...

I took a 35+ year break from piano lessons and was a little nervous to attempt it again. But Bobby made me feel very comfortable right off the bat and has been a great instructor. Very personable and extremely patient (and I'm sure my indelicate pounding has taxed that patience at times). His studio is well set-up and comfortable, and he really knows what he is talking about. Highly recommended!

talented, patient instructor that is fun to be around

Had a great time with Bobby! He is a talented man with a lot to give.

Bobby patiently guided me through the basics of piano. He answered every question calmly and thoughtfully, from the basic "where does my hand go again?" to "who invented the piano?" He tailored the lesson for me as we went and was a pleasure to be with. Not intimidating, but you still have a lot of respect for him and his craft. It's cathartic playing piano, since it's another way to connect your mind and body.

I highly recommend taking lessons with him! I bet he'd work really well with kids too.

Bobby is a great teacher

I Just started taking lessons with Bobby Apperson and I am having a great time! I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano but I just didn't know where to start. I would look up videos on Youtube just to learn to play the songs I liked but it was very difficult since I knew next to nothing about the instrument. Bobby has taught me that playing piano is so much more than tapping away at the keys, he is very attentive that I learn things the right way, and he takes the time to explain concepts I don't understand. He encourages me to ask all the questions I want never making me feel dull. I would recommend anyone to have Bobby Apperson as your teacher. Especially if you are a beginner like me. :)

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Wonderful person and excellent instruction

I have been taking lessons from Crystal for a few months now. I took lessons from others before I moved to the area, and I have had multiple new breakthroughs with Crystal. She is great at finding the language that allows me to understand adjustments, and is very patient and understanding. I was at ease from the first moment I met her. I highly recommend her to other adults looking to get into singing of any kind!

I had never taken vocal lessons before, but I have always been interested in them. A few months ago, I finally decided to take classes and I signed up with Melody. I was a bit apprehensive because I've never sung for other people, but Melody made me feel comfortable and she was and has been completely supportive. She identifies problem areas like breathing, improper form, or technique and provides constructive criticism. Melody pushed me to hit notes I've never been able to and I've noticed my vocal range expanding and the overall quality and tone of my projection has improved. I’m extremely happy with Melody and highly recommend her to anyone looking to take singing classes.

I've always had a passion for singing, yet I had no experience as I believed I had a terrible voice.

That is what was in my mind when I signed up for Melody's vocal lessons. I always thought that a low self esteem beginner like me would be too nervous to sing in front of a professional musician. All of that changed when I stepped into Melody's studio on my first lesson. As soon as I walked through the door, I was greeted with a warm, welcoming smile. Throughout the lesson, Melody was extremely friendly yet very professional. From that point on, I knew I was going to have a great time learning from her.
And I did.
Melody blew me away with her singing; her voice was controlled, professional, and very beautiful. She knew how to effectively convert her skills into lessons, and there was always something new to learn every single week. Techniques such as proper breathing, warm ups, posture, and voice control were some of the many new things I would have never known of without the aid of Melody. She tackled every one of my questions thoroughly and with great detail no matter how dumb I thought my questions were. She carefully observed me every time I sang, and gave me personal tips that would improve my vocals. After just a few lessons, I was able to confidently sing in front of others.

In the end, I have to say goodbye to Melody as I am moving to a different county. I hate having to leave, as Melody was a phenomenal instructor; she set the bar high for anyone else I choose to learn from. I highly recommend her, and encourage anyone who wants to improve their singing to apply for her lessons.

I can finally sing with confidence!

I'm a 29 year old aspiring actress who lives in Hollywood. I've always loved to sing but often felt challenged when singing with my upper register. And because of that I was not comfortable to go to certain auditions that require singing. About 3 months ago I decided to make a change and start taking voice lessons with Melody. Melody was referred by one of my actor friends who also took lessons from her and found helpful. At our first lesson she conducted a thorough vocal assessment and pointed out my trouble area, which is singing with upper register. She also corrected my breathing habits at the spot and we warmed up for 20 mins. Right after the 1st session I could feel the improvement and I was very excited. With the practical techniques Melody teaches me, after only three months I can say that I'm in love with singing, and I'm much more confidant with my voice. Next time I'm definitely gonna take the audition that requires singing!

Melody is very nice and enthusiastic, definitely worth trying!

Seth W. Los Angeles, CA

With 16 years performance experience, there is little I haven't seen within a band or live setting (aside from touring). From how to find bandmates, to handling band politics, to even firing bandmates I have seen and done it all practically.

I approach every student differently and give them goals to reach that will help them in moving forward with their playing and musical knowledge. I make the lessons as enjoyable as possible, mixing taking the music seriously which is essential with a great sense of humor that is also essential. Playing music is supposed to be fun! I will help you reach your goals and have the best time doing so.
