What Makes Us Different
Hollywood Vocal Studios specializes in attaining a perfectly balanced voice—the ability to move from low chest to high head voice with no breaks or changes in resonating quality. Through their unique applications of the Speech Level Singing (SLS) technique, HVS’s Master coaches have helped all types of singers hone their technique and finally dominate their mix, a common struggle for even the most talented singers.
Speech Level Singing was developed in the mid-20th century by Seth Riggs. Originally based on the bel canto technique, SLS trains the vocalist to utilize the vocal cords while singing exactly as one does while speaking. Because it aims to isolate one’s vocal cords and intrinsic muscles in order to move as “naturally” as possible, it is applicable to every genre and style of singing. During his time as a coach, Seth worked with all types of singers, from jazz legends like Nina Simone to pop wonders like Michael Jackson.
Hollywood Vocal Studios’ teachers studied SLS under Riggs for over a decade, eventually rising to the roles of Master Coaches. Today, HVS coaches bring this technical foundation coupled with their real-world experience in Hollywood in order to best serve each individual student’s technical, stylistic, and professional-based needs.
By studying with their best-in-the-business coaches, Hollywood Vocal Studios can help you achieve your wildest musical dreams.
Labels We’ve Worked With
“I highly recommend H.V.S. Adreana’s coaching not only strengthened my voice and sharpened my pitch but she took time to listen to my needs and made sure I understood how to apply this training to my own singing in the studio and live. It really helps when a coach cares about your success!”

“I have been working via Zoom with Adreana Gonzales at HVS for 8 months. Having been self taught and performing for 20+ years, this has been an eye (and voice) opening experience for me. Adreana has been a wonderful, kind, clear instructor who adjusts her lessons to focus on my weak points. I have been thrilled to hear my voice grow richer and my range expanding as I learn the vocal line and the nuance of my instrument!”
“I have been studying with Adreana for almost 3 months now and have had more success than I have ever had with any other vocal coach I have worked with in the past 5 years here in LA. She explains things in a clear and concise way and knew right away how to pin point the singing habits that were not helping me meet my ultimate vocal coach of singing mastery.
I would recommend her services to anyone with a giant 5 star stamp of approval!”
“I learn so much working with Adreana. She is encouraging, supportive and makes me feel good about my progress every lesson. I highly recommend vocal training with her!”
“Adreana is an amazing vocal coach. My daughter’s voice has improved so much since she started having lessons with her just over a year ago and she has learnt a great deal. My daughter thoroughly enjoys her sessions and really looks forward to them. I can’t recommend Adreana highly enough!”
“I had not sung in 5 years and within 9 lessons Adreana brought back my voice. She is an amazing teacher. She is straight forward and clear, you will feel and hear results immediately. I love learning to sing with Adreana!”

“Adreana is by far the best vocal coach I’ve ever worked with. In about a year, she has completely transformed my voice and helped me break down my bad habits that had previously stunted my growth as a singer. I now work with Adreana weekly, and my voice has never sounded better. Adreana’s knowledge of the voice is impeccable, and she uses practical technique and methods that render amazing results.
Along with being a knowledgeable and passionate teacher, Adreana is a kindhearted friend and inspiring role model. I would recommend Adreana to anyone who wants to improve as a vocalist and learn from one of the greats.”
“Adreana is absolutely fantastic. She is always so focused, patient, kind and most importantly, made me feel like I could access my own potential. It is such a pleasure to learn from her, and I was so happy to find her! I have studied with six other vocal coaches in the Los Angeles area, and she has been by far the hidden gem for me. She can help you unlearn almost any bad habits you may have, and put your voice through vocal boot camp—breaking down your voice into a simple state of singing in a speaking manner before learning stylistic approaches in such a short amount of time. I am a firm believer in having a vocal coach who preaches what they teach, and with Adreana, the proof is in the singing (as if hearing her student while waiting for your lesson to begin isn’t enough).”
“Adreana is an AMAZING vocal teacher. She is well-trained and knows how to specifically work with individuals to help them improve their skill set. After only two lessons with her, I was able to correct some fundamental issues I’ve had in 25 years of singing, and present with a stronger, fuller voice, which made the best of my existing strengths. People noticed the difference in my vocal performance right away, and as a result, I’ve been able to expand my vocal range as well and become a more versatile singer! In addition, Adreana is passionate and thoughtful about her work, and it is so good to work with someone who cares so much about what she does. It really shows in the quality of her work and you’ll feel like you’re in great hands.”
Dr. Judy Ho
“I came from Japan to study with Adreana, one of the best vocal coaches in Los Angeles. I had no formal training for a long time. I developed many bad habits. Adreana taught me many healthy techniques and she helped improve my voice. Adreana has an excellent voice, a great ear and amazing technique. She is like a magician. She was able to identify my weaknesses and guide me to sing accurately and mellifluously. It’s impossible to become a great singer in a short time. It takes tremendous dedication, hard work and years of practice. It’s important to have a caring coach that directs and inspires you to do your best. Adreana will help me reach my dreams.”
“Adreana deserves a 5 star rating. Intimate and challenging one on one instruction from a highly trained and gifted coach is what you get. Gonzalez can belt, and is a capable vocalist. This was important to me, I want a coach that practices what they preach.
I am a seasoned vocalist with near 40 years of experience and yes and old dog learned new tricks!!
Thanks Adreana , no stress, breathe, deliver pure
“I’ve been studying with Adreana for more than a year now and I’ve improved immensely. I was a singer long before meeting Adreana, but I never had formal training before studying with her. She has helped me unlearn a lot of bad habits I’ve developed over years of singing and I’m becoming more comfortable and more confident in my vocal ability.
Adreana always finds a way to coach me through each challenge that I experience. I didn’t really know how much better I was until I listened to some songs I recorded a couple of years ago. The difference between my vocal ability and sound from that point to now is night and day.
I look forward to continuing to study with Adreana and becoming a better, smarter, and healthier singer.”
