Christoffer S. North Hollywood, CA

About Christoffer

I have an MFA in Music Composition and Piano Performance from California Institute of the Arts and a BA in Music Composition from UC Santa Barbara.

I have been playing the piano since the age of 7 and started composing as a teenager. I began teaching music in high school and quickly learned that providing musical knowledge is just as important as acquiring the skills it takes to be a musician. Studying with me will help you become a well-rounded musician with the ability to play the type of music you want to play.

Constantly composing, film scoring, and performing, I'm a very active musician that works with classical musicians, rock musicians, and everything in between. I teach a variety of instruments and will cater lessons to your styles and interests. I'm also a ...

Chris is a great teacher. I worked with him at CalArts. He has a highly diverse range of skills as an instrumentalist and composer. He works in various musical styles fluently (from film scoring, songwriting, instrumental and vocal writing, to electronic music). A friendly and pleasant teacher to work with—he is very good at meeting the student at his/her level and helping them with their own individual artistic goals/needs. I highly recommend him as a teacher to anyone wanting to develop their musical skills.

Chris knows his stuff about music for sure. He is a very nice and friendly guy, and chill. He works around your schedule and musical wants. I decided to try and learn the accordion, and started with absolutely no experience. Within 2 months (7 lessons or so) I was crankin' that thing like a pro.

Jonathan B. Burbank, CA

About Jonathan

Piano, singing, and songwriting began for me when I discovered really awesome piano music such as with bands like Queen, Yes, and ELP. After high school, I studied classical music composition at Wheaton College's Conservatory of Music receiving my Bachelors in Music Composition with a focus in piano. My professional experience includes singing on film/TV productions such as High School Musical, Hairspray, and Struck By Lightning. I compose and orchestrate for theater (Glendale Center Theater, Vanguard University Theater Department), film/TV, orchestra (L.A. Jewish Symphony, TCOTW, BIOLA University) and album projects (Anna Nalick, Oodle's World Productions).

Singing credits include High School Musical 1, Hairspray The Movie, High School Musical 3, Chris Kolfer's new ...

Great

Jonathan is super patient and kind. But also gives good feedback that has helped me improve. Along with vocal warm ups and singing songs we work on ear training and sight reading. His approach is gentle and non judgmental. Great teacher for both kids and kids at heart. I am truly pleased and would highly recommend him.

I always wanted to play piano and after my first class with Jonathan I bought a piano, since then I love every thing I learn. Jonathan is excellent teacher very patient making every class interesting. He challenges you with different technics, and in every class motivates you to get better. In Jonathan classes I learn about performance, technics, theory, sight reading, ear training and more. If you want to learn how to play piano I highly recommend Jonathan.

The best of the best!

I've been taking bass lessons from Bjorn for over a year. As a beginner, I struggled to play until I started taking lessons with Bjorn. As a skilled instructor, he knew how to take me several levels ahead. In a matter of a few lessons, I was able to understand theory, strengthen my hands with proper exercises, and play complete songs. Every lesson is structured and meaningful. Bjorn is a professional and dedicated instructor who knows how to bring out the very best in you. I would highly recommend him to both beginners and advanced players alike!

Seriously the best!

I've been taking lessons from Bjorn for nearly 7 years now (since I was 15) and I honestly could not have asked for a better experience so far! He is a phenomenal teacher that covers everything from theory and technique to improvisation and incorporates your own unique music preferences, influences, and interests into every lesson. He is a true rocker and a great friend. He is patient, but knows how to push you to be your best and that, among everything else I've listed and more, is what makes him so amazing.
If you want to learn from the best in a super chill environment with an amazing guy Bjorn really is the teacher for you :)

Bass Lessons - The RIGHT Way

I have been taking lessons from Bjorn on and off for some time now. I had already been playing bass for years, but Bjorn pushed me in the direction of experiencing a whole new skill level. Focusing on technique and muscle memory training, he showed me ways how to tackle any riff or song so I could have complete confidence while playing out. I play in several cover bands and even if I think I have all of my songs down pat, I get a lesson from Bjorn just before a show and he shows me a new world of possibilities. Bjorn's expertise allows him to train almost any bassist, aspiring or seasoned. I always look forward to my upcoming lessons and highly recommend Bjorn to take your playing to the next level.

Vanessa L. Burbank, CA

About Vanessa

Bachelor's in musical theater performance from Columbia College Chicago. Audition prep (acting/singing) and vocal technique for clients since 2007.

My critique during your lesson is always honest, so you know when I give you a compliment it is well deserved. I especially love working with non-singers and helping them find their voice. I always start with an assessment to see where your work is currently at and where we can go from there. I keep notes during your lesson, send you an email afterwards with your homework for the week, then I use those notes to think of personalized ways to improve your technique before your next lesson.

If honesty and results are what you're looking for in a teacher, I promise to be that teacher for you.

I Left My First Session SO EXCITED!!!

I didn't realize so much could be accomplished in an hour, but I left our first lesson with an understanding about where I'm at with my voice, what is special about my voice, and feeling really excited and encouraged with where my voice can go. Vanessa was VERY patient with me, as I'm very much out of practice, but it took her no time at all to pin point my trouble spots and she quickly had other suggestions if certain exercises didn't work for my voice. After our session, I drove away in my car just beaming and I couldn't stop singing. Can't wait for our next session!

My name is Lenny W. and I am a guitar instructor at Musicians Institute. I have worked at the school for 15 years and seen many students come and go. Seth attended several of my classes for six months and also have seen him perform many times in the live performance workshop during his time at MI. Seth is a great person, and an accomplished guitarist. In his time at the school he was an exemplary student and developed greatly. I believe Seth would be a great teacher and endorse him for any position he applies for. Sincerely - Lenny W., MI Instructor
