About Mandy

For as long as I can remember, I have been singing and dancing, mostly by ear and by mimicking music videos. My first passion was R&B and pop. I began taking lessons at age 15 and my musical world opened to genres such as art song and musical theater, due to a fantastic teacher.

I left home to study music at Cal State, Long Beach. There, I was challenged with more difficult subjects, like opera and Lieder. My appetite continued to grow as I immersed myself in performance, competitions, and traveling the world with college choirs.

All the while, I did my best to satisfy my true self by collaborating with fellow musicians. I sang in my first band, Flexx, when I was in high school, then 2 others while in college. Professionally, I was a back-up vocalist and percussionist with ...

About Ken

I've been playing music my whole life, but it was as a high school student when I was asked to teach the school's guitar class that I became a teacher. Since that time I've gone on to earn several awards, played in many different types of projects, and earned a Master's degree. You might have heard my music before too if you've ever listened to a podcast, TV commercials, Indy films, or played any video games. My most successful student thus far however, would have to be Jacob Tilley from the rock band Young the Giant.

Not everybody wants to be a rock star though, and there are many aspects to the world of music. During the course of my musical adventure I've played with orchestras, been in rock, bluegrass, reggae, pop and blues bands, classical ...

Patricia is an amazing instructor on many levels. While she is an accomplished performer in her own right, she is equally able to break down the necessary vocal techniques in a manner that all ages and all levels can relate to. Lessons with Patricia are productive, but they are also fun! You will not find a more dedicated vocal coach anywhere.

We've had two lessons from Nicholas and can already play a few tunes! His instruction is very clear, focused and yet fun. This last is particularly important to my two young boys. He made sure that he understood our goals, what type of music we wanted to learn and quickly assessed our skills. We are looking forward to learning more from him as our lessons progress.

As I got older, I regret taking my piano lessons for granted as a child so I took courage to get back into it. Miss Michelle was very patient and encouraging despite my personal embarrassment of feeling like a slower learner. I also mentioned my desire to learn guitar, which then she kindly showed and taught me few chords. We would take a short break from time to time to "jam" (more like I learned) with her. Lessons were very fun and she was very easy to talk to. It was very unfortunate that I had to move away and end my lessons, but I learned so much from her in a year! I highly recommend her — she's a wonderful teacher!!

I took lessons from Michelle for a year and a half, and had a wonderful time! She took me through sight-reading, finger positioning, musical notations, etc. (basically everything for a beginner). I was at level 0 before I started and by the end got to a happy 2!

My 10 y/o daughter took piano lessons from Michelle a couple years back.
What I really appreciated was that Michelle teacher actually made each lesson fun and enjoyable. I usually could not get Tiffany to sit in front of the piano for more than 10 minutes, but with Michelle, practicing piano was no longer a chore for Tiffany.
Tiffany's improvements were really drastic and noticeable thanks to Michelle :)

About Max

Hello!!

Drums - Spanish - Swimming

I'm Max, a 27-year-old business professional with a love for learning and teaching. Right now I'm saving my way up to opening a music venue; this is my dream!

I'm from the Costa Mesa/Newport Beach area, and I have my own rehearsal studio in Santa Ana for music instruction.

For Spanish lessons, I'm happy to meet at local cafes, libraries or drive to the home. I have had extensive study in high school, college and in both Spain and Mexico, so I'm adequately prepared to tutor in this field.

Swimming lessons can only be accommodated at the pool of the client. I was a lifeguard for the City of Costa Mesa during college and played water polo for Newport Harbor High School.

Max is one of the kindest people you will ever meet. This translates directly into his ability to teach music. Music is a very difficult thing to teach, as it is very frustrating for a new musician to get the hang of an instrument. I'm sure it can be just as frustrating for the teacher, but you would never even get the slightest hint of that from Max. His patience with me, as well as his amazing knowledge of the drums and music, made for an experience that was very conducive to learning quickly.

He has very interesting and effective ways of getting one to pick up what he is trying to get across. If it's not clicking, he keeps trying to explain it a different way. He breaks down the basics, and shows you how to build on them one by one.

I have had brief stints with quite a few music teachers, and I can say without a doubt that Max is the most proficient in the art of teaching, and making you feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel. You may never reach it, but apparently that's what makes a good musician. One day, though, I know the light will be much closer, and much brighter.

Oh yeah, and he's kick ass on the drums...

Thanks again for EVERYTHING, Max!!!!
