Director & Founder, Songsmith LA


Bobby Apperson teaches Voice, Performance, Songwriting and Composition, and Advanced Piano and has been a musician for 30 years, playing piano and becoming a local teacher and public performer by high school. He majored in composition at UT-Austin and pivoted from classical + Broadway to pop, rock, jazz, and folk, while studying arranging, choral music, and multiple genres. 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!

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!
