Ms. Raffia is a music guru... she has the qualities any parent could appreciate when it comes to teaching a child all of the fundamentals of music. She has a gift and enjoys sharing it.
Raffia is an amazing music/voice teacher. She encourages, nurtures, and pushes my daughter to excel. I would recommend her to anyone. We absolutely love her!
My daughter enjoys being taught by Raffia. She says she is extremely nice teacher, patient and fun.
" I began studying with Raffia earlier this year and I've already come so far. I have sang all my life but Raffia is helping me polish my technique and teaching me how to actually read music. Raffia also helped me land my new job working with an LA based agency singing at weddings and special events so now I can officially call myself a professional musician. Raffia is kind, calm, and patient all necessary attributes for a good teacher. Raffia also received a degree from the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston which gives her an air of confidence and professionalism because she really knows and understands music. I consider Raffia a mentor to me. It's refreshing to meet someone with hands on experience in the music industry who is willing to give truthful advice. I think actually rooting for your student's success in life is what separates the good teachers from the great ones. Raffia genuinely cares and it makes all the difference. "
" Miss Raffia Ford provided voice lessons for my 8 year old daughter Kate about a year ago. The job was at Miss. Ford's house and the house was always looking nice. The lesson was 30 minutes long once a week. We called her Ms. Raffia instead of Ms. Ford. The lesson started with vocal warm ups, then Kate sang the song she learned the previous week during which Ms. Raffia would give her input and critics to help Kate control and hit the high notes. The lesson would usually end with the selection of a new song for the following lesson. Miss Raffia always help Kate pick the song that was appropriate for her voice and her age.
Miss Raffia was always on time with her appointment, polite and welcoming. Miss Raffia helped with Kate more than just a voice lesson, she provided Kate with examples from her performing experience that helped Kate her stage present in live performance. "
