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!!

Guitar · In studio
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.

good

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,

very unprofessional. I was not late, but instead went to the wrong apartment. Instead of asking if I was running late or got lost, he sent me a riddle about being late: "To be early is to be one time. To be on time is to be late. To be late is to be in trouble." I'm an adult, I don't need to be told i'm in trouble. Rubbed me the wrong way.

Cristina is knowledgeable, patient and a great teacher for me. I'm really excited about the progress I've made in just 3 short weeks and I know I want to go as far as I can in drumming.

I'm normally self-conscious and nervous about learning new skills, esp if I feel like I'm not able to be GREAT at it right away. But Cristina put me at ease right away and has helped me to be laid back and patient. That's a big deal.

She's an awesome drummer too.

Ruth made me feel very comfortable, and the lesson went well. I learned quite a bit for just the 1st lesson, and expect to make good progress. Ruth played my violin and made it sound great, so I am looking forward to being able to do the same.
We went through some of the basics on tuning, parts of the violin, reading music, posture, arm position, and bowing. I think Ruth has good skills, a nice way with people, and would recommend her as a teacher.
