“We came to Tiffany Music Academy after visiting 3 other schools in the West LA area. I liked the size of Tiffany's studio and the attention the teachers are able to give the students as a result. Their approach is very supportive and keeps the lessons interesting. Charlie is excellent at piano and teaching private guitar lessons”- Nate F.
