Danny V is everything you could want as a vocal instructor.

I came to Danny about 3 years ago wanting to take lessons. I had a very light classical type voice but I wanted more. Danny worked with me and helped me build my voice up to be strong, powerful yet controlled. I can do everything and more that I had only dreamed of doing with my voice. Not only that but I am STILL improving. Danny helped me believe in myself and that I could achieve the voice I wanted, now I'm here and I couldn't be happier or more proud of my voice! I have and still do recommend Danny to other singers he is the best you can get!

Wow

I have worked in the industry as a musician for 25 years and have worked with various vocal coaches. Danny has made a tremendous difference and I have been seeing improvements weekly. Being that I sing soulful music it has always been hard training with other coaches because they don't understand what it is to have a flow and soul. I do recommend. This coach can also sang!

Amazing

When working with various coaches, I noticed a few have what I call ," One size fits all". Meaning one lesson plan everyone. Mine situation was very unique. I had a bit of issues with my breathing in my lower voice and then needed help expanding my range. Danny helped me with that. Not only did he guide me, Danny also demonstrated how to use the right techniques. Also the facilities was a commercial location, not someones garage. I was able to bring my friends and they relaxed in the lobby. I felt and experienced results in my first week. I still take lessons to this day. Thanks a million....

Julian is an outstanding instructor. He has an amazing teaching ability, offering a great deal of knowledge and patience for people of all levels. I am really glad to have found a way to really learn what playing bass is all about. Thanks to Julian, I feel like I am able to hold my own if I ever try to look for a band to play with. I now feel like I can play and sound good doing it. Highly recommend!!

I started out with absolutely no musical training at all. The first few sessions we spent on learning the basics of how to hold the instrument properly. Julian then asked me why I wanted to learn so that he could find the right method for me. Its been about 4 years and I feel I keep getting better. I have learned more than I ever thought id be able to. I even played live in front of fans before a stars game at the AT&T Center. Julian is a great instructor and will tailor your sessions based on what you want to learn, all the while giving you the proper tools to grow on your own and find your own sound.

Very patient with young children, an outstanding guitar teacher!

Tom has been teaching my daughter guitar for her first year of lessons. She is now 6, and can be moody, very easily distracted and will not sit still for long. To keep her focused, Tom combines harmonica and slide whistle lessons along with her guitar lessons, and it works very well. He also brings in different kinds of guitars (electric and classical) to keep the lessons interesting for her. Every week he reviews what she has learned, and also brings new music and will even write requested songs (using fret # a good approach for kids at this age). He shows up for lessons like clockwork, and she has learned much more than we had expected her to.

Tom is knowledgable, patient and FUN!

Tom lets my son choose the type of music he wants to learn, even specific songs. He also has him work on other types of music in order to improve his technique, yet ensures that its music he likes. As his mom, I am particularly pleased that Tom discusses with him the types of things that my son should practice that will help his progress. Tom is a low-key individual, but has plenty of enthusiasm for his work. My son is always excited about his guitar lessons and thinks the world of Tom.

Michael is very good. He knows his stuff really well and I believe he is a good teacher. I have had problems with him being inconsistent. He has postponed me three times in 5 lessons.I have had 4 lessons of the flex schedule and the one initial for 30 dollars. I was postponed again yesterday even as I made it to his studio.That is why you may not have the count of lessons right. I will be doing my 5 flex lesson tomorrow and I hope to be able to continue in a more consistent fashion . Otherwise, I am a physician by trade and I cannot be dealing with time changing like this,

After just a few lessons with Michael I could see instant improvements in my guitar playing and truly started to understand more and more about my instrument, and just music in general. My lessons are always a good time with Michael and i look forward to each one every week. He's a great teacher and musician and I definitely recommend him to everyone.

Afraid to write this review

Michael has been wonderful. He seems very young to this old woman, but his maturity is remarkable. I have never had a teacher handle 'Thias the way Michael does. Somehow he seems to always be a step ahead of his young student and has a distinct ability to keep 'Thias focused on the lesson. Mathias has learned so much in the last four weeks, his playing sounds much more mature and organized and he is enraptured with the music he is making. I have always had to keep an eye on the lesson to make sure that Mathias was engaged. Somehow I do not feel the need to do that anymore. I guess I can say that Michael has given me the chance to relax and "enjoy the music". Thank you, Michael, You are making my dream and Mathias's dream come true.
Andrew F. San Antonio, TX

About Andrew

I have experience tutoring students as well as working with individuals individually and in groups, as an undergrad intern, a cognitive skills trainer, and a counseling student. As an undergrad intern, I worked with elementary school children as a tutor and a mentor. As a counseling student, I have worked with various populations, from children to adults to older adults in hospice care, as well as individuals suffering from a mental illness. This diversity has given me an all around kind of perspective when it comes to working with individuals and has especially helped me further develop my approach to working with individuals. My approach is one that is peculiar to the individual. As an auto-didactic learner, I believe that everyone has their own way of learning; therefore,
