We have a proven track record of excellence since our founding in 2011. Our testimonials for music lessons in Los Angeles can be found on Yelp, Google, Facebook and many other sites. Please enjoy just a few of our testimonials from happy customers. View more here. 

“My husband and I are both very pleased to have discovered Angeles Academy of Music! Nathanael Pangrazio has been teaching our 6-year-old twin daughters piano and voice lessons for nearly a year now. He is so patient with them, (works splendidly with children), was able to channel their individual talents and apply a curriculum to each of their requirements. We wouldn’t consider seeking elsewhere for music lessons."
“I highly recommend Angeles Academy of Music for ALL types of singers! I had previously taken singing lessons in middle school but now I’m more serious about my voice and learning the skills to correctly use it for singing! Pangrazio has great instructors who are patient and very well trained to help you grow and develop!"
"My daughter takes violin from Isabel and piano with Jesica. We could not be more happy. She is 10 years old and a total beginner on piano and takes violin at her elementary school but in a group setting. Honestly, they are all so flexible and easy to work with. Nathan is kind and easy to deal with. If you want excellent teachers plus a flexible schedule and a fair price, I highly recommend them. I’m so happy with the results and my daughter loves her teachers."
“ I am pretty convinced Angeles Academy has the best piano lessons in LA. My 3 children have been taking piano at the school with Jesica for the last 1 1/2 years. Jesica is a brilliant and kind teacher. Her patiences is truly extraordinary. My children started at ages 3, 5, 6. It is quite astonishing how proficient they are on the piano with only one, half hour, lesson a week."
