To start off sammy is an awesome teacher. I basically came to sammy with a singing skill of a 4 out of 10, and sammy helped me improve better than I really thought I would ever turn out to be. I had been wanting to be able to sing popular r&b songs, sammy pretty much trained my voice and brung out the inner soul and passion in me. He taught to just reach the preak of the songs and flow with it smoothly and also be strong with my projection of my voice. I used to feel a little shy when started singing with sammy because i wasnt sure if my voice was good enough, but i have very well built my confidence up with sammy's help to be able to song anywhere in any situation! Other people have rated my voice as a strong improvement from what it was before as well and people seem to fall in love with my voice! Thanks sammy!

Sammy is truly an excellent music instructor -- his professionalism, talent, and skill are truly top notch. He has an infectious enthusiasm that energizes you to be better and to reach your goals efficiently. I have a number of years of experience with singing already, so I asked him to be a little aggressive in my instruction at my first lesson. He took that request and ran with it, and so I've noticed an even bigger improvement than I thought possible after only a few lessons! I would definitely recommend Sammy for anyone interested in developing their singing skill and confidence in a big way.

Sammy is the first vocal teacher I’ve ever had and I couldn’t have asked for a better teacher. Starting vocal lessons is difficult and it can be nerve raking trying to sing in front of someone for the first time, but Sammy is so encouraging and patient that it put me totally at ease. Voice seems like a difficult thing to teach, there all kinds of abstract concepts that are hard to grasp unless you’ve grown up singing, but Sammy is so great at explaining them. I always thought my voice was weak and quite, but it has improved so much since I started taking lessons with Sammy that I barely recognize it.

Sammy Huh is extremely professional while presenting an infectious enthusiasm for his student's progress. I noticed immediate improvements in my voice, and the environment he created during lessons made me unafraid to take risks and go farther. My schedule is complex, and Sammy worked with me to find compatible times for class. All in all I am completely satisfied with this service.

Sammy Huh is an outstanding music instructor with a true love for music and a desire to assist his clients with meeting their goals. Sammy has awesome patience with a keen ear to listen to what his clients seek in their music goals; listening to the current skill level and method and assessing practice lessons during the session and comparing homework assignments during next sessions to help meet the notes needed to support owning the piece. He is a wonderful instructor with an easy going smile, very friendly, courteous and highly professional. Sammy takes music to heart, personally participating in several performances and choirs (he can sing and he provides vocal lessons!). He is an instructor you want to work with. I'm glad he is my piano instructor. I have learned a lot from him and thank him very much for his wonderful patience as I grow in my piano study.

Sammy is an incredible instructor that teaches to your needs and level. He is particularly skilled in explaining vocal projection concepts and helping you alter the way you are singing. I thoroughly enjoyed taking lessons with him and have definitely seen improvements in my technique. Definitely recommend for anyone who is interested in putting in some time to improve their singing.

There are two things about Sammy that struck me as unforgettably impressive. One is how kind he is to his students and the positive learning environment he creates for his students. I wasn't afraid to make mistakes and just go for it---a MUST if I'm serious about improving. The other was the breadth and depth of his knowledge on singing, down to the tiny details. Seriously, folks, this guy knows what he's talking about.
