After studying singing off and on for more than 30 years, i won't be surprised if anyone calls him the best singing teacher in Los Angeles. He has the best sets of vocal exercise which can relax your voice, build your resonance, and help you hit your notes accurately in your range. Very very happy to have him teaching me.

Gregory Valens Luv is a phenomenal vocal coach. He's very detailed in teaching you structure of the body to relax you and open you up for singing. I love his technique. I find myself very relaxed and limber which brings out the best in me. He's very creative and shares various types of vocalizations to help you with every style of music. He's also got a sweet spirit and that makes it very enjoyable to come to class.

I have taken guitar lessons with Greg. He is very patient and takes extra care to make sure that I understand the concepts in the lesson before moving on. He is able to determine a student’s experience level and skill set, and teach at any level from beginner to advanced. One of the things that I appreciate very much from Greg is that he has helped me develop my own unique style. My playing and songwriting skills have improved dramatically. Much thanks to Greg. I highly recommend him.

Greg is a fantastic teacher who clearly loves music. He makes classes fun and is very encouraging. I felt I was hopeless at music to start and when we concluded lessons I felt like I could actually sing.

Gregory is a great teacher! Clearly has a love for what he does and teaching others his craft. He's super supportive and brings a great energy to your lessons. More than willing to go above and beyond for his students. He helped me immensely with my voice.

Excelllent Music and Voice teacher

Studying with Greg was a wonderful experience. I'd sung as a teenager in choir and had studied music as a child. As an adult I wanted to study voice for creative outlet and found Greg through a friend. He got me started immediately on vocal exercises, some music theory to train my ear and we selected songs that I was interested in. I broke through some 'blocks' I had about singing in front of another person and really made progress. I feel much more confident with expressing myself through my voice. Incidentally, I saw Greg perform with one of his students who got a recording contract -- he's a wonderful musician on guitar, piano and voice. A pleasure to watch and then bring that back to the lessons. I highly recommend him as a teacher !

Gregory took me from not knowing how to play a thing to playing guitar and singing in a band in just under a year.

I didn't know what to expect from Gregory because the teachers teaching my friends all taught the same and they didn't want to practice all that much. Greg has worked with some of my idols/ rock stars and he doesn't fool around-he gets you into what you really need to know to get to where you want to go, fast. Thank God for Gregory ValensLuv being my teacher. My friends are thinking about switching to him. I highly recommend him. He's professional, well dressed, punctual, polite and knows what he's doing. Hemay be a little more expensive than the average teacher, but you get what you pay for.

In all honesty I can't say enough good things about Gregory's teaching. He is technically excellent, patient, generous, very knowledgeable, and a great deal of fun.

Really have enjoyed working with Gregory

It has been a dream of mine to become a friend to my voice and let it delight me. Years ago I took voice lessons and remembered how freeing that experience was. When I found Gregory and started lessons it all came back, the feeling of opening, of expansion, of joy. Gregory has taught me much about my capacity to sing, skills to develop my voice and most importantly hoe to expand out to the world through song. It has been a delight to work work with him over a two year period. He is knowledgable, sensitive and very encouraging.

Gregory V is the best, ever!

I didn't realize all the opportunities that were waiting for me when I began lessons with Greg. I started so I could learn guitar, but before long we were practicing vocals, bass, songwriting, music theory, piano, and singers yoga! Greg is well educated in all fields of music, and any questions you have he can more than likely help you with. Music to him isn't just a skill, but a way of life. ~ Train Girl ~ guitar, voice, piano & bass student

An awesome Voice & Guitar Instructor!

My daughter took voice lessons with Gregory around 6 years ago but for us it's as if it was yesterday. We will never forget his amazing spirit and his incredible talent. Gregory is complety connected and immersed in his lessons. He makes his students feel special while at the same time developing their voices. The results are immediate and as a matter a fact my daughters friend which I thought to be tone deaf took a lesson and the transformation was incredible. I can not say enough about him as a person or as a teacher!
