Bobby Apperson teaches Voice, Performance, Songwriting and Composition, and Advanced Piano and has been a musician for over 30 years, playing piano and becoming a local teacher and public performer in high school. He majored in composition at UT-Austin and pivoted from classical + Broadway to pop, rock, jazz, funk, soul, and folk, while studying arranging, strings, and choral music. Life took him briefly to Seattle and now California, where he song writes and is a creative coach to singers, singer-songwriters, and singer-songwriter-pianists. His studio has been top-rated online since 2013.

In 2016, BA Music Studio became Songsmith LA and started hosting house concerts and group events for networking. Songsmith LA now offers several teachers and coaches in various studies!

Bobby also has worked in music tech and was the lead web developer on websites for Justin Timberlake and Dave Matthews Band. As both a social media junkie and sage, he provides web and social media development and writing services for his music clients. He’s available for gigs, arrangement, music directing, and more.


The best part of working with him is that he helped improve my voice as well as my piano playing. As a songwriter and performer, he had so many tips on how to better those areas as well. You won’t find a more patient and positive teacher!
