New Student Registration

As someone new to vocal training, I was really pleased with my first lesson I took with Ashley. She took the time to listen to my individual goals as it pertains to singing and songwriting and I continue to train with her today. She is extremely attentive and knowledgable in all areas of music and vocals. She not only makes me a more confident singer and performer, but educates me on new material to ensure I am a well rounded artist.

Ashley is a fantastic piano and voice teacher! My daughter has learned so much in both theory and artistic expression, and Ashley has been instrumental (no pun intended) in helping her prepare for her yearly L.A. Opera Camp auditions. She is wonderful, patient and kind and I highly recommend this amazing music teacher!

It is a pleasure to recommend Ashley McGinnis. She is a wonderful piano teacher. She taught our 7 year old daughter piano for about one year before she had to move. Our daughter learned a lot. Ashley is very practical and to the point. I would highly recommend her for Piano Lessons.
