Highly Recommend This School 10/19/2011

My daughter has been taking voice lessons from Gabby at the valley location for 2 years. In the beginning I was concerned that my daughter was too young to begin voice lessons and she may damage her vocal chords. Gabby is very knowledgeable and set my mind at ease. Gabby works on breathing techniques and harmonizing. My daughter wasn't able to sing in front of anyone 2 years ago. Gabby has taught her how to work through nerves and just did a solo audition for her school musical with 50 peers watching!! We love Hollywood Academy and highly recommend. more

Great Music School for Kids 10/12/2011

My boys (ages 9 and 11) have been taking piano lessons at Hollywood Academy of Music for a little over 3 years. They started out as beginners, and have now achieved a level of play that exceeds my expectations. They both love their lessons and look forward to them each week. We have had 4 different piano teachers in all. The two newest ones have only been teaching my sons for a little more than a month, so I don't feel I can rate them fairly yet, but their two previous teachers, Chad and Cindy (Cindy is no longer with the school) really took the time to get to know my kids' interests and skill levels, and worked with them to find music that both matched their skill set and motivated them to move forward. Overall, the teachers are top-quality professionals who excel in working with children. Christine, the receptionist/office manager, has always tried to accommodate us on the rare occasions we've had to reschedule lessons. She is delightful to deal with; a professional, patient, and friendly ""face of the business."" Lastly, the lessons are pricey, but from what I have observed talking to other parents about private and music school lessons elsewhere, they are priced competitively. I would (and have) recommended the school to other families. more

Hollywood Academy of Music, BRAVO!!! 10/9/2011

My 11 year old daughter started her violin lessons a year ago at the Hollywood Academy of Music - North Hollywood location. Since day one, she has looked forward to attending her violin lessons with her outstanding teacher, Lilit. My daughter loves her teacher who inspires and who keeps her focused. I like it very much that she keeps me updated with my daughter's progress. Everyone here - from Vivian (office manager), to the staff - is very professional and easy to communicate with. They have this welcoming environment. My daughter and I are glad that we chose to attend the Hollywood Academy of Music. more

Best Music Lessons 10/8/2011

Hollywood Academy of Music has been an amazing experience for our 8 year old daughter. She has been taking classes there since she was 5. Her lessons consist of piano and voice. The instructors are amazing with kids. She was immediately welcomed with enthusiasm from the moment she walked through the door. They really took the time to ask about our daughter and her interests in order to match her up with the right instructors for her. It has been a perfect fit! She looks forward to her lesson every week. They also offer a low key, no pressure chance to perform twice a year. The office is well managed and organized. In the three years we've been at the school, they've had the same instructors, which gives consistency to the kids and also shows that they treat their employees well. I recommend this school to anyone I know interested in music lessons. more

Hollywood Academy of Music Is the best!!!!! 10/7/2011

Hollywood Academy Of Music has been an amazing experience for me. I have been going for 6 years and I go every week for 1 hour with Emily for vocal lessons. She is an amazing teacher, and I love her very much. She is very talented, she has a beautiful voice, and, she has taught some AMAZING things about operatic music to help my career as a singer. She is very concentrated on the music, she is up and energetic. In her absence though, I experienced another music teachers which were very good also. They taught me things like how to breath, my scales, how to control my breath control and how to not waste it in a very short period of time, music theory, and lots more which I cherish very much and am glad that I have learned. I take piano sometimes with a very talented piano teacher, Gabe. He is the best pianist I know. He is amazing! The music he plays makes my heart beg for more! He is very kind, and he has a great personality. He is the best piano in the world to me! He also can play any piece of music you give to him, with only a few days to rehearse it. I was in the need of Gabe at one point. I was singing ""Gypsy"" from Carmen(Bizet). And I needed a very good pianist to play the melody because it was very challenging. Emily showed Gabe the music and immediately he started playing the music at our first rehearsal together. He did not even miss one note! He was and still is superb!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also Christine the manager at the main office, she always very nice and VERY helpful! I don't know what I could've done without you Hollywood Academy of Music! We thank you very much Kirk for having this MAGNIFICENT school!!!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH! more

To The Great Staff and Music Instructors at Hollywood Academ 10/7/2011

To the Great Staff and Music Instructors at Hollywood Academy of Music. My Daughter begin at Hollywood Academy of Music when she was 5 yrs old, started with Piano. At six she started at the same school taking an additional class Electric Guitar. At 7 yrs old she added another additional class taking Pro-Tools Class. At 8 yrs old she is taking three classes all together Piano, Electric Guitar and Pro-Tools. This is something that she wanted to do and picked the classes that she knew she would be interested in playing and learning. She has accomplish so much at Hollywood Academy of Music in Reading Music, Playing and Recording and making her own CD's in her Pro-Tools recording class which one of her songs has a patient on it. With the Recitals that Hollywood Academy of Music has twice a year gives each student the opportunity to play in front of an Audience on stage and capture that experience. Attending this Music School also helped my daughter get into the school orchestra where she attends elementary school, and that was learning how to read music. I have referred people to Hollywood Academy of Music and they love the expertise of the music instructors that are teaching their kids. Always remember this, what you get out of the music what you put into it, and that is practice, practice, practice. All the instructors are professional in their field and music graduate majors, so you know you're in good hands with the staff at Hollywood Academy of Music. Louis & Swati more

Pros: Nice Clean facility, Qualified Instuctors, Great Pricing more

I highly recommend Hollywood Academy of Music 1/23/2007

I have taken guitar lessons for many years and from many instructors, but I've found these lessons to be the most rewarding. I've learned a tremendous amount in areas covering technique, improvisation, scales, music theory, songwriting, and live performance. The environment is relaxed and fun, but structured with explicit weekly goals that ensure you're getting where you want to be. more

A standout among the rest 1/17/2007

I have attended piano and bass lessons for over a year now. My instructors have adapted to my learning style and kept my lessons current and interesting. I have gotten to kow most of the instructors and staff. They have always been curteous and professional while maintaining a ""fun"" atmosphere. The lesson prices are reasonable and competitive and the schedules are flexible enough to fit many different lifestyles. Hollywood Academy of Music stands out among other schools and makes you feel like you are part of their musical family. Pros: Instructor knowledge, price, family atmosphere Cons: Location if you don't live in the area, parking and traffic can be difficult at times more

Highly Recommended 1/10/2006

I have been taking guitar lessons at the Hollywood Academy of Music for several years, and I can honestly say that it's been one of the most rewarding experiences of my musical journey. The instruction I've received there has been truly first rate: my teacher always keeps the lessons fresh, challenging and inspirational...imparting his own knowledge while still tailoring the program to accommodate my specific interests. I've actually been quite impressed with the dedication of the entire staff; they really care about the students' progress, and are clearly passionate about the work they do. I would highly recommend Hollywood Academy of Music to anyone interested in furthering their music education. Pros: great teachers, convenient location, fair prices more
