Music is a joyful act of sharing, so I try to teach and perform with this philosophy in mind.

I have 18 years teaching experience and have toured the U.S. extensively as a performer, composer and teacher (working with people of all ages and skill).

I am an adult who has little music background. Before signing up the lessons, I was hesitated whether a teacher would be impatient to teach someone like me. A friend who plays in orchestra encouraged me and went through several sax teachers' profiles and picked Rulon for me.

And it turns out that Rulon is really great. Without doubt on his professional knowledge, but also that he is a very encouraging. He has more faith in me than I have in myself. He explores my strength and uncovers it; he also finds my problem and tailored a procedure for me to improve.

I would highly recommend him as a teacher. But wait, please don't compete with my schedule. :-)

Great teacher who allows his students to express their creativity.

This summer I started getting into digital music composing and began writing my own songs. Rulon has been very helpful in focusing my ideas and teaching me how to be a better composer. He has helped me develop my song ideas and taught me to focus on the melody and song structure rather than on effects and instruments. I really enjoy my lessons and like that Rulon provides critical feedback of my work but allows me to develop my own ideas. I have learned a lot from my lessons and feel that my songwriting skills have improved substantially.

Todd has been teaching my 14 year old son for several months now. I have to say he has kept my son's interest in the instrument and tailoring teaching to his interest perfectly. Todd is very pleasant and accommodating to my family's scheduling needs. I would recommend him highly!

Todd is an excellent Guitar Teacher.

My daughter has been taking Guitar lessons with Todd since last month. She is very happy with the lessons. Todd lets her chose what she wants to play and at the same time he is developing her overall and basic skills in playing the instrument, in a very encouraging and delightful way. She is certainly learning a lot, under Todd's able guidance.

Dan is a top grade professional in every way. There are few people that are more passionate and committed to their purpose in Life. Dan goes above and beyond for people to ensure their success in life. He is incredibly gifted, patient and successful in teaching and training and encouraging people in their talents and their gifting. 
I can’t recommend anyone more than Dan. Dan was patient, thorough, and kept his people informed and positive through the ups and downs of the entire process. He was well liked by everyone. He is both a leader and a supportive team member. In addition, Dan is a delightful person who makes everyone’s life better by his presence. Again I give him a strong recommendation. I cannot say enough great things about Dan. He is extremely polished and professional. He has a can-do attitude, and is always going the extra mile.

Insightful, challenging, and enjoyable lessons!

Starting voice lessons was new territory for me; though I had been in choir, I hadn't had lessons that pushed me individually before. I was looking for detailed, content-rich instruction that challenged me, which I found in Dan's lessons!

Each lesson, though only a half-hour long in my case, includes new concepts that can be immediately applied for better singing! His approach is multidimensional, addressing pitch, tone, quality, and breathing at an intensity that varies according to skill level. Dan has experience in numerous styles and is able to offer apt tutoring to all of them. He has a unique ability to break down and explain concepts in singing so that they are tangible and attainable.

We have worked on pop, jazz, and folk so far, and in each area, I learned a bajillion new things! Dan's enthusiasm and knowledge combined with his engaging teaching style will benefit anyone who wants to improve their voice. I absolutely recommend Dan as a voice teacher!

About Kay

I fell in love with music at a very young age. Perhaps occurring while seated in the very back of my moms Datsun 510 station wagon during a mildly warm and smoggy Los Angeles afternoon. While my mom ran a quick errand, I vividly remember being consumed by a radio pop tune left on for us kids to enjoy. It was during this moment that I recall consciously thinking - "I want to do that". Whatever "that" was remained to be seen....

Despite "wanting to do that", I wasn't taken serious when my mom arrived back in the car. Arriving to a son yelling "I wanna do that", "make it louder", I wanna do that". She laughed. This while probably reflecting back on those other occasions in which I insisted on being a ...
