*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very fun loving person and believe in creating a positive environment where students feel comfortable to be themselves. At the same time I am a stickler for details and do not allow laziness. I believe a balance of fun with excellence has allowed my students to excel far beyond their own expectations. Good results takes HARD WORK! Please do not come to lessons with the expectation to sing like Beyoncé or play piano at Carnegie Hall after 4 lessons. Mastering your voice and instrument takes equal parts of time, hard work, dedication and patience.
My teaching style is individually based.
For vocal clients, I asses their strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to build up their weak areas while helping them find "their own voice". I focus on breathing, intonation and control which I believe are the foundation of great singing ability. I use a classical Italian based program along with pop, R&B, jazz, and rock. I have vocal coached in many languages including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.
For piano clients I focus on strength, dexterity and precision in fingering. I also help students learn to feel the music and bring their personality and touch to each piece they are performing.
*** Studio Equipment ***
Tanisha currently teaches at her performing arts academy the White H Arts Academy. There are private instruction rooms and a lobby waiting area for parents and guests. Parents may also sit in the lesson room if desired. Private lesson rooms include a piano, speakers, and a music stand.
The White H Arts Academy also has two state of the art mirrored dance rooms with sound systems and wireless microphones for practicing stage performances or rehearsing for a big show.
*** Specialties ***

Very friendly and straight to the point. The entire hour was practice practice practice. Got every pennies worth out of my lesson!
Best teacher on the planet plus she is an incredible singer. The voice lessons are fun, joyful and I have learned more from her with several lessons than I learned about singing any other time any where. She is a master of teaching music!
I’m glad I found Tanisha, she has taught me a lot in just a few sessions. She is also really supportive and encouraging. I will definitely continue taking classes with her for as long as I’m able to!!
So far so good!! Tanisha was very helpful during my first lesson. Made me feel as if she has known me already. Very good at relating current events in your life to the actual coaching. Awesome!! Can't wait for my next lesson.
Excellent experience with Mali... He loved her expertise!
Tanisha is the best! Will definitely be continuing with more sessions.
Tanisha is one of the best instructors I've ever had. She's patient, thorough and has a great sense of humor. I've seen improvement in my vocals in just the few months that I've worked with her and realize how important it is to have a good coach. A good coach will teach you proper technique so that you don't sing in a way that puts an unhealthy strain on your voice while at the same time stretching your vocals. She does that and so much more. The icing on the cake is that she also teaches guitar and piano which are instruments I want to learn as well. She's a one-stop shop for nearly everything.Show More
Some connection problems on my end. But overall, wonderful and engaging instructor! ☺
Very in depth. Both popular and classical perspectives.
Tanisha is an excellent vocal coach. I improved so much in a span of a month (of course with a lot of practicing). She is so fun and comfortable to be with! She's always encouraging me and willing to patiently work things out. Thanks Tanisha!
She is excellent. I loved my lesson and the home work. Very excited about this!
It was great despite the inturruptions with my phone. Tanisha is such a lovely, warm hearted person. She was so patient and accommodating with me.
Amazing teacher. Very fun and patient. She knows her stuff. 👍🏽👌🏽
She’s the best! She is very good at picking up on what you’re strong at, and helping with what you need to continue to work on! Love her!!
She is a great teacher!
Tanisha was positive and encouraging. My grand-daughter was pleased with the sessions.
She did a great job teaching!
Very good teacher extremely patient!
I learned a lot thank you!
Love your vibe, energy, and realness. Can't wait for more and for you to put me to work :)
See you next week!
From my 7 year old daughter, "First lesson was sooo easy to understand. And, I had a blast."
When I first signed up with take lessons I was very skeptical. I had never done anything like this before and had no idea what to expect. I read the reviews which were great, but still felt skeptic because I know everyone has different experiences. I must say that all the reviews were very true! Tanisha made me feel very welcome in her home. She listened to my concerns and her feedback washed them away. I left her home studio feeling excited, confident and just high on life and what's in store for my next session.Show More
She’s the best ❤️
Tanisha is a great instructor and she makes it simple and fun. Im learning a lot from her. I will definitely continue my kessons with her.
Tanisha was great. She made me feel very comfortable. I’ve only had 2 lessons so far but I’ve definitely learned some things. I look forward to continuing to work with her and would definitely recommend her to others.
It was as my first guitar lesson ever! It was fun and Tanisha is a great teacher and very patient. She makes it easy. I’m already looking forward to my next session.
I think Tanisha is great. I feel comfortable and at home singing in her studio. Our sessions are fun and I feel like working with her will get my vocals stronger and louder and were I want them to be.
She’s very helpful and encouraging. I don’t think I could have chosen a better person.
My daughters are enjoying taking lessons with Tanisha. They are also learning, and progressing nicely. Tanisha is as excellent a piano teacher as could have ever hoped for.
She challenged me but Im working on something that I really need and with a totally different approach. I loved it
Fun, Funny with a Fantastic Voice, Tanisha is helping my dreams come true.
She found exercises that challenge me but she is also super supportive of my insecurities. I could see improvement in only a couple sessions.
She is also flexible and giving with her time.
Always a great session.
My niece (Jewel) is enjoying her sessions and wants to continue.
Such a great instructor. She is very patient and encouraging every step of the way. I can feel myself improving every time I go and I look forward to each lesson!
Tanisha is so nice and makes you feel very comfortable. I’m already feeling improvement after my first lesson and can’t wait to see the results after my five weeks are over! Definitely would recommend her to others looking to improve their vocal performance.Show More
Amazing experience with Tanisha! So far took just one class and learned so much. I cant wait for the next lesson, definitely recommend if your looking for a great instructor.
My husband & I wanted our grand daughter to take lessons to learn how to breathe and sing without straining her voice. She has been learning under Tanisha's guidance for the past 9 months and there has been such a significant
improvement in her voice. To this day our grand daughter has preformed in two recitals under Tanisha's Foundation and she has become very confident when preforming and her voice is much stronger.
Tanisha is a very personable and caring teacher. We just love her!
Awesome teahcer, very patient and personable and location easy to get to very convenient for families in the South Bay area.
Extremely professional and a excellent singing instructor. Motivates and a confidence builder. I highly recommend her to those who want to learn how to sing, and I know I will learn the art of singing because Tanisha has master the art of music and singing and the technique to teach others.Show More
Tanisha is very thorough and patient. She breaks the progressive steps down, and uses techniques and analogies that are easy to understand and apply. I had several breakthroughs in my time with her!!!
Nice Instructor! Loved going to her lessons!
My biggest issues were rhythm and timing in pop songs, and Tanisha definitely helped a lot with that.
Rachel said it was great working with Tanisha
Ms.Tanisha is an excellent teacher. This is my first lesson and she make you feel welcome and warm, I enjoyed the lesson very much and will looking forward to many more. To any one looking for an excellent vocal teacher ms. Tanisha is the one.
Amazing teacher with a dazzling personality!
Wonderful Piano Lessons.
I am enjoying them tremendously.
She's master of Jazz 👍🏻
I absolutely love taking lessons with her! Not only is she very knowledgeable about the music industry and the voice but she genuinely cares about you, your career, growth, and mission. I highly recommend her as a teacher!
Ms. Tanisha is a wonderful teacher, She is very patient and she makes you feel comfortable from the minute you walk into her studio. I'm a beginner so I have a lot to learn, but she has taught me so much already, I am looking forward to many more wonderful learning experiences with Ms. Tanisha Hall! 👍😀Show More
Great and very personable. I have only had 3 lessons so far and I already see results. Highly recommend.
Sweetest vocal trainer ever !! She makes you feel so comfortable from the very first day. She sings along with you and really takes time to work on the problem areas. Very welcoming as well. Makes the lessons so much fun :) definitely recommend!
Wow!!! The lesson blew my mind. Tanisha really has a knack for teaching in the most accessible, efficient and effective way.
Tanisha is a wonderful, high spirited person! Makes learning fun and exciting! I look forward to my lessons each time I go! Highly, highly, highly recommend here if you're looking for someone who is fun and willing to work with you until you achieve your goals!!Show More
My first lesson with Tanisha was incredible! She is an amazing vocal coach. I was a tad bit discouraged before I met with her, but now I look forward to my next lesson!
My first experience with Tanisha was very enlightening. She really is a woman of many talents. Professional and a sense of humor.
I love the atmosphere, very calming and relaxing. My daughter is able to focus and retain everything she learns.
I feel confident working with Tanisha. During my first lesson, we did breathing exercises and she chose a song for me to practice. She helped me learn the song because she noticed that it's a great fit for my voice and genre. Tanisha encouraged me to use the song as guide so I can practice matching the pitch. Tanisha sang along with me while she listened to my voice. She knew exactly how to improve my vocal performance right on the spot. Her tips and teaching made my voice sound beautifully efforless. With Tanisha's help and encouraging words I know I can achieve a dream I've been working and praying for.Show More
I really enjoyed her lessons, she has helped me develop my head voice and i already see a difference.
Just had my first lesson with Tanisha and it was pretty awesome. She's warm, personable, knowledgeable with a high level of professional. Definitely one of the best I've ever had!
Mrs. Tanisha is the best instructor ever!!!! I love taking lessons from her!
First lesson was amazing. After reading the reviews, I thought she just sounded to good to be true, but her reviews were right on the money. She made me feel comfortable by getting to know who I was as a person not just a paycheck. The little nerves I did have melated away with the little accolades I received for time to time trying to sing. I plan on stick with her for a while, maybe even after I achieve my main goal. I'm definitely not a singer but with her, I think I can get somewhere.Show More
I love Tanisha's personality! She's also very patient and very accommodating. Looking forward to more lessons!
Tanisha was very hands on with teaching, making it very easy to understand. I'm extremely excited for the skills and talents that Tanisha will help me brush up on and discover as well.
These lessons are great and helpful! Helped me grow as a singer!
Tanisha is amazing and gave our son so much confidence that he got the lead role in a musical!
I began taking vocal lessons with Tanisha back in December 2015. I had taken some voice lessons a few years prior, but it just didn't stick. Luckily, my first experience Tanisha was a great one. We went over my personal goals as a singer and she catered to those specific needs. I would say Tanisha's biggest strength as a singing instructor is the way she focuses on the singer's specific needs while making the lesson as fun as possible. Her ability to balance seriousness and enjoyment is something I have never seen before. I have recommended her to my friends, and I extend that recommendation to you!Show More
Perfect with helping you mastering pitch
Tanisha is the best singing instructor I have had. My voice has strengthened a lot with her.
My lesson was excellent and informative! I know that I'm on the right path to achieving my goals in music!!! Plus, Tanisha is the greatest and I'm glad to be her student!!!!
I was a little nervous about my first singing lesson with Tanisha because I never got professional singing lessons, but she made me feel comfortable and confident. For it to be my first lesson I highly recommend her.
Tanisha was perfect for what my daughter. Gentle yet effective
Tanisha is great!
She's very personable and has a great ear.
She's very good at what she does.
I've met Tanisha during my temporary stay in LA, so I did just a few lessons with her because of the short time I had.
Tanisha was really good in focusing on the core of my singing attitude and really helped me realize how I can improve my technique.
That's why I'm still training with her vocal exercises; despite the brevity I feel I've improved already.
Thanks Tanisha for all your support and hints!
Amazing songwriter and a great teacher. She really showed me how to express my feelings in real words not corny rhymes. My songs are a million times better now. She even helps me write in Spanish!
I've been studying with Tanisha for a few months and my voice has REALLY improved more than any other voice instructor I've had, and I've had quite a few. If you're looking for a teacher to really become a part of your life pick her!
I had an issue with my in home studio setup and Tanisha helped me get to the bottom of my issue. She knows a lot about recording software, much more than a lot of others who claim to teach recording. I also appreciate how she is willing to spend extra time without even charging just to make sure I understand completely!Show More
Really enjoy my lessons with Tanisha. She's a good teacher. My voice has improved a lot.
Ms. Tanisha is the BEST! She's really nice and I love how she focuses on technique not just generic singing.
Great instructor! Helped me feel comfortable and open my voice without straining. Two thumbs up!!!
Awesome personality. Extremely knowledgeable. Was able to pinpoint areas of improvement quickly and give exercises to strengthen those areas. I am so glad I found her.
Fun and patient instructor!
She made me feel very comfortable. She's amazing!
Te'a really enjoyed Tanisha
I can't say enough good things about Tanisha & WHAA. We live in Chicago and our daughter studies with Tanisha. We decided to visit Tanisha & WHAA for a family vacation just recently, and we are so appreciative of the focus and education that has truly inspired our daughter to master her craft. With Tanisha's help, our daughter has reached a higher level!Show More
Tanisha is a wonderful teacher. I have learned so much and she makes the learning experience fun and comfortable. I look forward every week to learn something new. I strongly recommend her.
A very kind and patient instructor, great to work with.
Amazing!!! From the very start. :)
Tanisha is great! She made me feel comfortable from day one, even though I had no previous singing experience. She is always encouraging and challenges me at a pace that is practical and not overwhelming. We meet online which is convenient, and I don't feel like I'm missing anything not being in the same room. Tanisha makes it work well over Skype. Highly recommend lessons with Tanisha!Show More
amazing! I have never sounded better thanks to her
Tanisha helped me change my life. I can now actually say that I sing
I've always had singing lessons on my bucket list. So at age 45+ I decided to give it a try with online lessons from Tanisha. I can't say enough about these lessons. Tanisha is a real pro. Even over Skype she was able to identify the habits and idiosyncrasies that were impacting my singing and provide me with some easy ways to improve my voice. She has the technical knowledge and skill to help shower singers like myself or rising stars. I especially enjoyed the opera exercises that really stretched my capabilities. Watch out karaoke. Here I come!Show More
Tanisha has the gift to bring your voice to the full potential. She can do magic that makes singing effortless. My daughter (7) even notice mybprogress and she asked to learn with Tanisha as well. If you longing for vocal freedom, let Tanisha do her magic to your voice.Show More
One of the best teachers I've experienced!! She is very kind and pushes you to do your best!!
Tanisha has a terrific personality and did a wonderful job settling the nerves of my 10 yo daughter. Within minutes, my daughter's confidence was way higher and I loved Tanisha's encouraging nature. Looking forward to the next session.
Great teacher very patient highly recommend.
Wonderful first lessons. Solid tips that I have been able to put to work right away!
Thank you Tanisha!!
Best vocal coach I've ever had. Totally changed everything for me. 5/5!
Tanisha is amazing and worth every penny! I'd recommend her to any and everyone!
Tanisha was great. I'm looking forward to future lessons.
Awesome teacher! Gives nothing but her best! My vocal skills improved more with her than any other voice instructor!
Awesome teacher!!!! she is both funny and encouraging. Her directions is very clear and easy to follow.
Excellent teaching skills. Outgoing personality. Big Heart for teaching the arts. Plus we share the same name.
Excellent teaching skills. Outgoing personality. Big Heart for teaching the arts. Plus we share the same name.
I really enjoyed my singing lessons with Tanisha.
My teacher, Tanisha, was excellent!
First, we chatted about my singing history/where I am now/where I desire to go & Tanisha isn’t just an amazing vocal coach, she is an amazing LIFE coach. Within that conversation, she gave me hope past some challenging times in my life. Her authenticity was refreshing.
Finally we got to the singing; Tanisha has an effortless way of imparting major knowledge & skill into fun moments that is exceptional.
I hadn't realized how much I was my own obstacle until singing with Tanisha. I'd been making singing more difficult than it was and taking all the fun and natural "know how" out of it. After one lesson, while singing in my car--a song that I had been unable to sing through because of the high notes came on and I sang as normal, imagine my surprise when I reached the high notes and they EFFORTLESSLY came out! I was so ecstatic. AFTER ONE LESSON. The technical knowledge she gave me on how to use my vocal cords/breath/diaphragm correctly were everything I needed to obviously open up my range again. It still isn't where it can go, but it is further than I'd ever imagined already. I look forward to growing my vocals back with Tanisha. I highly recommend Tanisha especially for people who desire an instructor with a high focus on vocal health.
Finally, if it is a concern--don't let the location fool you! It is very safe & once inside you could very well be at a West Hollywood Studio location. She has meticulously decorated & equipped her school with all the best.
Wonderful experience... So much fun!
Tanisha is the BEST! I started taking voice lessons with her when I first moved to LA 8 months ago. I always thought I was taking voice lessons just to improve my confidence in professional settings since I'm really soft-spoken. But thanks to Tanisha I've built that confidence and have been applying it to building myself as an artist.
She's helped me develop my range in a way that I am no longer afraid of trying new things with my voice. Oh, and thanks to her I'm also learning to write my own songs. :)
She's awesome, makes lessons fun, and is always open to helping you get where YOU need to get.
THANK YOU TANISHA <3
Tanisha is very understand, very knowledgeable, provided networking opportunities for me. Would recommend Tanisha to anyone looking to make music a career!
This was my first time ever taking singing lessons. Tanisha immediately made me feel comfortable and taught me things about singing that I had never even considered. I'm so happy that my grandmother chose her for my singing instructor. Each week I so look forward to my next lesson.Show More
My first class with Mrs. Tanisha was fun and enjoyable and i love speaking to her. She's really friendly and easy to get a long with. When I first sang to her she immediately figured out my first problem and got right to fixing it, I can't wait till my next lesson with her ^_^Show More
Patient and funny. She's been great to work with. I look forward to our lessons every week.
Had A good time, we found some bad habits I have to break. I look forward to improving my vocal ability. I am pleased with my investment!
Tanisha is amazing ! She always goes above and beyond and always has your best interest at heart. I'm naturally very shy and from the first day she's always made me very comfortable while also pushing me to get out of that. In the little time that I've been working with her I've seen great improvement. If you're serious about taking your music career to the next level I would definitely recommend her !Show More
Tanisha is impressive. She focused quickly on my goal of developing a more sustainable speaking voice and gave me a set of practical exercises, tips, reading material, and video material for continuing to improve my delivery even after our lesson package had ended. She tailored her instruction to my specific needs and blended her advice with humor and empathy. I felt comfortable working with her. She even got me to sing once or twice. You'll be really happy with your voice instruction from her. Thank you, Tanisha!Show More
Tanisha is great! She has very skillful teaching methods. I look forward to learning with her.
I lovvvvve Tanisha. She has this upbeat and vibrant personality; she's super sweet and nice. When it comes to singing, she has you pick out your own song that you would like to sing. She doesn't bombard you with songs and training that won't enhance your voice. I've already noticed changes to my voice and I'm only on my 6th lesson. Plus, she's not a teacher that watches the clock, so if she feels you need an extra 10 mins for vocal training, then you will exceed your time limit with no problem. She's there to help you and if I had to recommend a vocal coach, then of course it would be Tanisha Hall :)Show More
Hands down the best vocal instructor LA has to offer. Not only is she extremely talented and knowledgable, she is deeply personally invested in all of her clients.
No where else can you find somewhere like her.
From vocal technique to preparing for shows, she knows her stuff.
If you want not only want a vocal coach but truly a musical mentor, go to Tanisha.
Works fantastically with all ages also. :)
Though it was my first lesson, I didn't do anything that pertained to opera.
I came in with a song I'm trying to learn for a chorus and Tanisha jumped right in on the first lesson with some amazing and specific instruction. Can't wait until my next lesson!
The best vocal coach my daughter has ever had. Very sweet, and knowledgeable of music and vocal training.
I'm a 55 yr old female that hasn't taken voice lessons in the last 20+ years. From that time until recently I would just do karaoke off and on. I started taking lessons with Tanisha about seven months ago. She is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to my voice. Initially I just wanted to learn how to use my "alto" voice more effectively. I avoided singing soprano songs because it was very uncomfortable and it didn't sound right to me. But to my surprise Tanisha convinced me that I am in deed a first soprano. She started working with me on my singing with much attention on my upper range. Thanks to Tanisha, for the first time in my life I have started feeling like a real singer! She has truly taken me places vocally that I could have only dreamed of going. Even when I sing lower it sounds tons better. I practice consistently because I'm so excited about all of the progress I have made in just a seven month period. And I am just blown away that I have those high notes now! When it comes to the voice Tanisha is definitely a miracle worker! On top of that she has this bubbly personality and from the day that I met her I felt like I've been knowing her for years. She's like a new best friend!Show More
For the past 6 months I have taken voice lessons with Tanisha. She has a very warm personality that makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. She is passionate about teaching and also tailors the lessons to who you are as an individual so that she can help to extract the very best out of you as a student. She is encouraging and never judgmental and meets you right where you are at. Most of all, she has abounding patience. I have seen an overall improvement in my vocal ability and can now sing in a range that I thought was impossible for me.Show More
Tanisha is the perfect coach and teacher. She provides both services at such a high level, I definitely would not be where I am today without her guidance.
through the few short weeks I have worked with her, I have improved in my live performances as well as my mental aspects of my singing. the homework she gave during the week has literally changed my confidence and performance. I have never had so many compliments after a concert. It is both uplifting and affirming the hard work I've put into my vocals!! I only see a bright future ahead with Tanisha and myself.
Tanisha is a great teacher, she's very attentive and she's helping me big time on many flaws and bad singing habits that I have!
Tanisha has been just awesome! My daughter has gained a lot of knowledge and great tips in a very short time. Tanisha is always upbeat and encouraging. We are VERY, VERY happy with our choice in picking her!!
Tanisha is EXCELLENT working with our 7 year old daughter!!!! She absolutely loves her lessons and is motivated to practice everyday. Tanisha is extremely patient and has an upbeat, fun personality. Our daughter looks forward to her lesson time every week.Show More
Tanisha is a great singing teacher to have at any voice level. She's funny, patient, and professional. Gives valuable advices!
Tanisha and her special gift
Tanishas' teaching is very professional. She is very patient. Tanishas' personality is beautiful. She has a smile that will light up a room. She makes a difference in ones life. She has Jesus which is a double plus with me. She is very intelligent, she dresses nice and she makes one at ease. I love it when it's time for my lesson. One can't help but to love her. A very beautiful person
Tanisha is hands down the best vocal coach not only with her knowledge of music and voice but with her willingness to go above and beyond to help her students. She has given me great progress in such a short amount of time, and even takes time out of her day to help me when I need it. Tanisha not only helps build a good singing voice but also gives direction on how to turn it into a career!
Ms. Tanisha is the best instructor I have ever had!
Ms. Tanisha is the best instructor I have ever had! She not only teaches you how to read music and play the piano; she is very knowledgeable and teaches you the history so you know how things came about and can appreciate the skills of playing the piano. Ms. Tanisha is very thorough and patient in teaching. She is also challenging and encourages us students to do our best and beyond. I feel I have grown very quickly with Ms. Tanisha in playing the piano. And I look forward to continuing and advancing with her help!
Tanisha is AWESOME!!
My daughter has been taking singing lessons at White Hall Academy with Tanisha for 2 years in April. my daughter has become an amazing singer. She has been chosen as lead singer and lead part in a musical Cinderella. She now sings with a world renown choir and is planning to pursue a future career in singing by auditioning for the Voice and attending a performing arts college. Our experience has been nothing but positive. Highly recommend Tanisha as a vocal coach!!
Effective work ethic
I have been working with Tanisha for the past few months and my voice has significantly improved. Not only is Tanisha kind and patient, she is also incredibly hard working. She pushes her students to reach their full potential and, most importantly, she roots for us. Her lovely spirit and positive energy makes working with her very easy. I look forward to my sessions with her every week!
I've been with Tanisha for about 4 months now. She's been patient and extremely comfortable to work with. The best part, I've made huge progress!
I've been with Tanisha for 4 months now. When I first started working with her, I could not match low tones at all. After a couple months of working with her I made a huge progress. She never once made me feel bad and always gave me huge encouragement. She wont move on until you've perfected each step. To me this is crucial, I'm paying money to be the best singer I can be. She's always there; you never have to wait for her. I don't know what to say, other than she's pretty awesome !!
Keeps My Daughter Motivated!
Miss Tanisha has done an amazing job keeping my 6 year-old daughter motivated to learn! As a result, my daughter has made big strides in just a short amount of time. In addition, my daughter takes pride in her progress, and she willingly practices every day. Thank you, Tanisha!
Tanisha is a wonderful teacher & I recommend her for anyone who wants to inhance their vocal abilities!
Since I've started my singing lessons with Tanisha I've become vocally stronger and more confident in wanting to pursue singing as a career. She's a great teacher and very gifted at what she does!
Phenomenal piano teacher!!!!
I have taken piano and music composition lessons with Tanisha and she is very fun, understanding, and helps me learn things I never knew possible on the piano.
Tanisha is amazing! I love that I get too work on songs I love and always critiques me when I need it. She is super fun to work with! I recommend her too anyone of all ages and musical ability! :D :D :D :D
Great music teacher
Tanisha is a great music teacher. She is very knowledgeable, easy to talk to, and motivating. She adjusted my lessons to fit my skills and I've seen vast improvement in my piano playing and singing. Highly recommend Tanisha for a music teacher.
Tanisha is a Great Teacher ALL AROUND!
I've been taking lessons from Tanisha for quite some time now and I enjoy every minute of it! I feel like every time I take a lesson, Its still challenging and I have something new to learn. Since I've started taking lessons with Tanisha, I've recently switched to Skype Lessons and they are just like she's in the room with you! Great teaching skills, easy to talk to, and a great Teacher all around! I really recommend her to anyone!
Tanisha is the best!
I love taking classes with Tanisha. She is so talented and makes piano really fun. It's one of the highlights of my week. She and her staff are always so friendly and the place is always very clean. I cannot recommend her enough!
Tanisha is AWESOME
Tanisha- she knows what sheâs doing. I remember a saying that goes âThose who canât do, teachâ âsomething like that- but anyway, Tanisha, well, she both CAN DO and TEACH. She definitely knows her art and she would make sure that you learn yours too. She doesnât just stop at teaching you how to reach the notes; she will teach you how to own the notes, that is the way she teaches music. I never thought I could be even more passionate about singing than I already am until I met her. The passion that she brings with her is so captivating that she will, not only involve you, but engage you in what youâre doing. Her energy during the class is just contagious, it would really make you take on the lessons with enthusiasm and glee- not a dull moment with her but also she knows just exactly how to balance it with the right amount of strictness so you would really get the lesson in your head. . I remember the first time I spoke with Steve, the operator from take lessons telling me how Tanisha is actually quite far from my place but that I should go on and try the lessons because sheâs definitely worth the travel- well, I should really commend Steve too because he is so right, taking lessons with Tanisha is one of the best decisions I have ever made, maybe Iâll commend myself too for making that decision and if you make the same decision then I will commend you too ;p lol
An amazing instructor!
Definitely take classes with Tanisha - she's a wonderful instructor and equally wonderful person. You'll come out of class with improved singing skills...and spirits!
I enjoy my voice lessons with Tanisha very much. With every lesson I notice big improvements in my singing ability. Tanisha is a very warm and skilled teacher, and her lessons are just a lot of fun.
Tanisha is passionate about the act of teaching. There is a positive relationship between teacher and singer. When a vocal exercise is offered, an explanation of purpose is accompanied. She makes me the singer, part of the process by explaining the purpose of each exercise. Tanisha is a dedicated teacher that guides me.
Tanisha is an Amazing teacher.
What I love most about my lessons with Tanisha is the fact that she took time to really learn my voice. She did a great job at helping me find a range that was comfortable and exclusivey fit for me! The songs that she chose for me to sing were challenging yet very possible for me to learn. In addition she made sure that we sang song that were fit for the genre I aspire to master. Tanisha is a kind and truly caring teacher. She will also push you, she gives her all in teaching sessions and she will not take anything less from you! I would proudly recommend Tanisha to anyone that aspires to enhance there singing voice!
New experience, and I'm loving every minute of it.
Over the past month I chose Tanisha as my instructor and I am very fortunate to have such a wonderful teacher who cares about my improvement. She knows exactly how far to push a student. The first day I went to class I was a bit nervous since it was a whole new experience but Tanisha made me feel VERY comfortable, she's very nice and honest.
Sheâs also very supportive and knows how to make you improve your weaknesses. She provided me with the lyrics and even chose a great song that would benefit me as a beginner. I really appreciate her teaching me and giving me her honest opinion. She really cares about her students and I would highly recommend her to anymore!! I really look up to Tanisha, sheâs a very talented musician. I always look forward rehersal !
Truly the BEST OF THE BEST.
I have studied with Tanisha Hall for 14 months. During this time sheâs expanded my power, range, stamina, phrasing, note-perfect pitch, and stage presence. She has also kept me from damaging my chords, so I donât have a sore throat anymore. Perhaps the most critical thing Tanisha has shown me is how to AUTHENTICALLY CONNECT with audiences and form a deep bond with them during live performances.
Since Tanisha has been working with me, here are the tangible results, with no exaggeration at all:
I got to sing the Star Spangled Banner for start of a 5K road race that had 3,000 runners in it, and a very large crowd of spectators.
I have been offered weekly residency at a performance venue in North Hollywood, and also a bi-weekly residency at high-end supper club in Long Beach.
I got invited to collaborate with a well-known pianist to perform Christmas songs with her at two of her most exclusive venues. She also wants to collaborate with me to sing at weddings during the wedding season.
Iâve also received offers to co-write new material and to go into the studio to cut tracks with some artists in Orange County, even though their style and genre is very different than the direction I plan to go into. They keep constantly bugging me to sing with them.
In summary, I simply canât tell you how critical Tanisha has been to my development (after years of going nowhere) and how LUCKY anyone is to have her as an instructor.
If she has room in her schedule to take you on as a new student, youâd better take it while you can. Even if it means driving 40 miles, youâll never find anyone better than her, for sure.
Enjoying every moment.
The development of my instrument has been enhance and continues to be enhance with the techniques I have learned from Tanisha. I will say a lot of abs work, who knew. I am absolutely enjoying my lessons and happy how far my singing range has increase. I look forward for every lesson and my ability to improve.
Encouraging and Patient
Tanisha is one of the best music teachers I've ever had. Her encouragement, patience, and honesty have been such a huge help for me as I continue to grow. I highly recommend her for students of all ages.
Tanisha is the best! You will absolutely love her!
My experience with Tanisha has been fun, fulfilling, and rewarding. She really cares about the progress of her students. She reaches out to help any way she can and I truly appreciate everything she's done for me! I consider her a true friend. She's also given me great advice. She has inspired me to grow as a musician and aspiring artist...she's supportive and she has always allowed me to do what I want to do...she's there to guide me every step up the way. I highly recommend Tanisha to be anyone's instructor! She works well with people of all levels.
Tanisha H. is very knowledgeable and does a superior job at communicating concepts in a way that makes it easy to understand.
Overall Tanisha is a highly valuable instructor for all ages. I really enjoy learning from Tanisha.
Tanisha is an Excellent Singing Teacher!
Tanisha is worth every minute of every lesson, every mile of the 40-minute drive, and every dime of her modest fee. My 13-year old daughter (excuse me, "about to be 14") has been taking singing lessons from Tanisha since early this year. After the first one-hour lesson, both my daughter and I walked away smiling from ear to ear. We were impressed and ecstatic, knowing that we were blessed to have literally stumbled upon someone of Tanisha's talents, personality, and passion for teaching.
Tanisha is always cheerful and pleasant and has a great sense of humor. She is honest with her criticism and encouraging at the same time. I have noticed a marked improvement in the strength of my daughter's voice and her singing confidence. Tanisha teaches my daughter how to use her voice healthfully so that she can have longevity as a singer. She teaches my daughter how to overcome voice issues, like hoarseness from having a cold, to deliver a good performance in spite of the problem. She teaches my daughter what happens when her voice doesn't come out right so my daughter knows how to recognize and correct it herself. We went from Tanisha asking my daughter "What happened that time?" when she hit a wrong note and my daughter shrugging her shoulders with a blank stare to my daughter answering with confidence, "I sang from my throat and didn't support."
Tanisha has challenged my daughter completely out of her comfort zone with great progress, and she teaches my daughter that it is ok to hit a bad note so she can learn how to fix it. She gives my daughter voice exercises to practice at home.
Tanisha is more than my daughter's vocal teacher. She teaches my daughter how to "perform" in front of the mirrored wall which is helping my daughter feel more confident singing in front of an audience. Tanisha relates to my daughter with endless funny analogies that my daughter loves. My daughter looks forward to every lesson, and she respects and looks up to Tanisha as a mentor as well as vocal teacher who, by the way, has an amazing voice herself and is gifted on the piano.
From the experience and progress that my daughter has gained with Tanisha, she is 100 times more confident with her singing than she was at the beginning of the year. Tanisha is awesome - more than we bargained for. You would be blessed to have her as a vocal teacher. We plan to start my daughter on piano lessons soon, and I'm toying with the idea of taking songwriting lessons from her.
Tanisha is HIGHLY effective
Tanisha is not only gifted at teaching students the music craft, but she is HIGHLY effective. My daughter has followed the advice she has given to improve her vocals and in a week's time my daughter's vocals were noticeably stronger! She is very humble and intelligent. My daughter loves working with Tanisha and looks up to her as a gifted musician. Thank you Tanisha for sharing your gift.-Kindle
Tanisha is, hands down, THE BEST. She is passionate about music and teaching I have been taking lessons for over two months now and I have learned a lot and am having a lot of fun! I look forward to signing my two daughters up this summer.
Tanisha is AHH-Mazing!!! She is The Best. She is very hands on, literally showing me where I am to sing from, ultimately helping me to understand how my body works to support my voice. THoRough should be her middle name. Thanks sooo much Tanisha.........Show More
she is great. Very helpful, also professional
Mother of a Student

Ms. Tanisha is very knowledgeable, supportive and willing to be of assistance. She is great role model.She gives accurate feedback about my teen's voice level, ability, potential, goals and expectations.My teen: is always eager to attend the next lesson; learns new concepts and executes them in class and at home; confidence level has increased; has learned a lot about vocal anatomy and the respiratory muscles needed to sing well; is challenged at each lesson to take risk and expand her aptitude pass her comfort zone.Ms. Tanisha ROCKS!!!
Tanisha is has superb teaching methods and made this newbie feel very comfortable and at ease.
I have always wanted to work on my voice but have been scared to. But from the first conversation with Tanisha I have felt comfortable and at ease about doing this at the age I'm at. Tanisha is a superb and brilliant teacher. She is demanding in a way that makes you want to get better and conquer the lesson at hand. She forces on your weaknesses and makes them stronger, giving you great examples on how to get better. She is amazing and I'm very blessed to have her as my teacher.
Tanisha is doing a great job with Jordyn!
We are really happy with the progress of Jordyn's lessons. Tanisha is very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable! Jordyn really enjoys going to class each week. We look forward to the continued progress.
She is a great teacher.Tanisha has a great voice. She has a way of teaching that helps you understand the method of vocal, how to understand your voice and how to breath properly. Great class!
Tanisha is Great!
I love working with Tanisha! She has a great balance of technical advice and relevant experience. She makes me work hard, but the time flies! I know I am improving thanks to the exercises she provides.
Tanisha is an awesome instructor filled with positive, radiant energy that encourages me. As a beginner, it was very important for me to have someone who's patient and knows how to provide constructive criticism. She does both equally and I really appreciate her for that!!!!!!!!! I highly recommend Tanisha; you will truly have a rewarding experience with her.
Tanisha is a great instructor and she works well with Kai. Kai is has learned a lot in a short period of time.
BEST TEACHER EVER!
Tanisha helped me develop (and find!) my voice with her honest and constructive advice. Her hands on experience in the music industry gives you invaluable perspective and insight. She pushes you to be your very best, no excuses. She is both a great person and vocal coach!
Tanisha is an incredible teacher. She is patient, kind, concerned, and knows how to cut through the crap. The creative learning foundation that Tanisha is establishing with my daughter will serve her well throughout her life, in that Tanisha teaches the importance of a good work ethic, hardwork, and practice, practice, practice - and she does it all with with humor and encouragement. It took a few teachers to find Tanisha, but I'm so glad we did.
Thanks to Ms. Tanisha H. my baby girl is learning so much and I am totally satisfied. Thanks Tanisha!
I was a beginner with no singing talent. I got super lucky to find Tanisha. She is well-organized in her teaching style, knows exactly what she's doing, is very encouraging, and genuinely cares about me, her student, and creating the voice I have inside me. I'm getting better and I understand singing now! Thank you, Tanisha! Just can't wait to hear how I'm going to sing in the next month.
