About Kevin

I'm a small town, Wyoming native and ventured to Boston, MA, where I received my bachelor of Fine Arts at the world renown Berklee College of Music. At Berklee, I studied vocal performance, songwriting and music business and became one of the premier vocalists on campus, regularly singing in the prestigious "Singer's Showcase" each year. Quickly after graduating, I was able to tour the United States and Canada in the national touring company of the Broadway smash musical, RENT. Since re-locating to the Southern California area, I've been sharing what I've learned during my career with students, performing in numerous musicals, venues and vocal groups, as well as honing my craft as a singer/songwriter. My song, "Drive", garnered honorable mention from the John Lennon Songwriting ...

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Wonderful person and excellent instruction

I have been taking lessons from Crystal for a few months now. I took lessons from others before I moved to the area, and I have had multiple new breakthroughs with Crystal. She is great at finding the language that allows me to understand adjustments, and is very patient and understanding. I was at ease from the first moment I met her. I highly recommend her to other adults looking to get into singing of any kind!

Great teacher of all things!

I'm taking piano/voice privately from Mary. I wanted to learn opera and then she showed me how important music theory is to work on your voice. I'm in my mid 40s and thought I never could learn all this complicated stuff- but Mary makes it so fun and easy and motivates me. I and my friend took ballroom dancing from her too. She has great prices and spends alot of overtime . Very generous and experienced!

AP Exam Prep
Patience and Fun

My 15 yr old son has taken Algebra and now AP exam prep tutoring from Mary. Trey has some learning disabilities and Mary does so great with teaching him the math formulas and how they can be used in every day life so then he memorizes them alot better.
Jordan B. Torrance, CA

I am also an acting coach, and I am currently looking for focused and hardworking actors that want to take their talent to the next level. As an actor myself, I have spent too much money on widely advertised LA classes and workshops. In my opinion, those are a complete waste of time, money, and energy.

Why pay $500 for a six week course just to learn one monologue and play useless theater games? This approach is futile in its efforts to truly nurture an actor's innate strengths. My approach is in-depth and will give you the necessary techniques that will help you understand and utilize your reserve of raw emotion.

Areas of study will include: Character development, Script analysis, Meisner vs. Method approach, and subtext/motive.

If you want to realize your amazing potential as an actor this is a super affordable way to reach that next level.

Whether you are a beginner, or an experienced actor that wants to keep your chops sharp, my customized lesson plan will bring the ...

About Jordan

Hey guys, I'm Jordan B., and I'm a graduate of Musician's Institute in Hollywood with 10+ years of recording, playing, and teaching experience. If you're just getting started playing drums, or if you are an experienced player that wants to develop some serious chops, I've got the perfect lesson plan for you! Each student has a customized curriculum that maximizes their creative potential and develops their true voice on the instrument. Located in Torrance, but willing to commute to the student's home if that is preferable. My curriculum dives into the study of different styles of music (Latin, funk, jazz, rock) as well as foundational techniques. More advanced studies include odd-time signatures, chart reading, and polyrhythmic concepts. I am also an acting coach, and I am ...

Dylan W. Long Beach, CA

I've been acting and teaching for about twenty years. Acting is about getting to the core of a character and I can help you achieve this. Through scene study, monologues, improvisation, and other techniques, I can teach you the art of displaying honesty on the stage or film.

About Dylan

I fell in love with acting in 1994 and have been doing it ever since. I received a Bachelor's Degree in Theater with an emphasis on Performance from California State University Long Beach. After that I've performed with Shakespeare by the Sea, The Long Beach Shakespeare Company, and East L.A. Classic Theater. Also, I have worked with San Dionisio Sa America, which is a Filipino theater company that only performs in old fashioned Tagalog. During college I started script writing and later produced several short films and two television shows. I've worked with several after school programs specializing in education. I was a substitute teacher for several years before becoming a 7th grade English teacher.
