Michelle G. North Hollywood, CA

About Me

Musician/Songwriter/Performer

Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. Amongst the many other leads that she has played, her participation in roles like “Susanna” in The Marriage of Figaro, or “Donna Elvira” in Don Giovanni embody much vibrancy and integrity.
Through the development of her voice as a singer and actress, she has crossed over into other media such as voice over commercial work and vocals for pop/main stream music productions. She has recently participated as a vocalist and violinist in the albums of artists such as international jazz pop artist David Longoria, Latin pop singer Erick Bolivar, Grammy-nominated percussionist Souhail Kaspar, and American Idol’s Seysha. Over the last few years she has unraveled her musical skills as a songwriter/composer/arranger and has even had some small victories acquiring music placements on TV shows (NCIS, short film “Sumtin’ Like Dat”, The Dictator) for herself and some of her colleagues. Her inner brilliance is lighting a unique path before her, and she is bravely embracing each step forward in a promising creative career.

Education
Michelle completed her Associates of Arts for Music/Music Education at the age of 18, and got later graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Miami with a Bachelor's of Arts for Musical Theater and Music Business, as well as from Florida International University with a Master's of Music in Vocal Performance.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor my lessons to my student's needs, style, abilities, and goals. Learning is truly a fun and passionate adventure for me, and my enthusiasm has consistently been a contagious quality :) I love to challenge myself & my students to discover how immense their true potential is, and I create a safe and fun environment to explore such facets.

My curriculum is combination of solid tradition (Suzuki method for piano & violin, and Bel Canto technique for singing) interwoven with pop-culture, and modern influences. Within the first 3-6 months, my students will know the basic building blocks of music - which includes scales, arpeggios, triads, intervals, technique, and performance repertoire; and for my singers this will include proper breath technique, tone placement, support, very often increased vocal range (both high and low), and will feel significantly stronger vocally and more confident getting up to sing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full size Keyboard, mics, pro tools, Violin (electric, acoustic, and Chinese Ehru)

*** Specialties ***
Specialties include:
- Audition technique and prep
- Vocal Technique
- Violin Pedagogy
- Acting Audition Technique

Matthew Z. Huntington Beach, CA

About Me

I am primarily a composer, guitarist, tenor, pianist and percussionist and I love sharing what I have learned with others and watching my students develop and grow. My goal is to teach my students until they are better than me, so I hold no secrets, tricks or techniques back and I devote my time and energy to help others become the best musicians, artists and people they can be.I have a BA in music composition and a BA in music history, both from California State University, San Bernardino. I play the guitar, bass, piano, drums, orchestral percussion, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, recorder, harmonica and didgeridoo with varying levels of proficiency and have experience in music theory, songwriting, recording, MIDI, arranging, singing (contemporary, broadway and opera), and acting/performing. I have performed in The United States, Austria, Spain, Australia and New Zealand and have 13 years of experience, development, mistakes and successes to offer my students. I love learning new things and have been teaching as a profession since 2007. I am also First Aid & CPR certified, Live Scan fingerprinted, FBI background checked, Safe Environment trained and a Child Abuse Mandated Reporter.

*** Lesson Details ***
I do not use a set curriculum. I prefer to discuss goals and music with my students and their parents to determine what genres, styles and techniques they are most interested in. I then use techniques I have gained through experience along with songs and classical exercises to develop strong technique, a developed ear and the ability to read music. I do expect students to be disciplined, practice regularly, and be prepared for lessons, enabling them to expect the same from me. Whether a student wants to be a classical virtuosi or learn how to play a song they heard on the radio, I will keep the lessons fun and interesting for anyone willing to practice and learn, and I will always to my best to cater to the student's individual needs and goals.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I provide all copies of music, handouts, exercises, etc. Students are expected (when applicable) to have an instrument in good, working condition.

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I form all of my lessons around being able to learn, memorize and play songs, read written musical notation (along with sight-reading & technical exercises), and improvisation (based on scales and exercises).

For guitar and it's relatives (bass, mandolin, ukulele, banjo) I can teach any style or genre of music, including modern tapping techniques, and I also teach TAB notation.

I teach both classical and popular piano, usually combining classical sight reading exercises while learning both classical and popular repertoire.

I have experience acting and singing on stage in both non-musical and musical productions, as well as five years of classical vocal experience singing in high school and collegiate ensembles. Being in these environments has equipped me with the tools and exercises to be able to teach everything from basic singing to fundamentals in broadway and opera.

I also have a small studio in my home where I write and record, providing me with the opportunity to also teach recording, songwriting and music theory.

Ana T. South Pasadena, CA

About Me

Miss Ana T. is a versatile educator with 7 years of private teaching experience. She began building her skill set at various schools and after-school programs a decade ago, and all of the opportunities ultimately helped her to master the 'art' of tutoring, motivating, and small group teaching to a "T." She has successfully taught ESL learners and students with a wide range of disabilities, and can assist with general organization skills, college prep, and note-taking formation. To her, tutoring is more than just homework assistance; it's confidence building and character development, much like teaching. She exhibits patience and has genuine concern for every students' progress, therefore her phone stays off during sessions and she expects the same from them. :)

Alaina D. Marina del Rey, CA

About Me

My name is Alaina and I'm 22 and from Louisiana. I recently moved to California this past summer. In regards to French, I have been learning the language since 2002. I began to hone in on it in 2007, and I have earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in French from LSU this past May. I have tutored friends and classmates on the high school and collegiate level. I have also traveled to France twice to study abroad.
I am a huge fan of sports and being active. I've played softball for over 10 years as well as being a competitive cheerleader for 4. I've had injuries that caused me to give those up; however, I am an aerialist now. I've done aerial silks for two years and it is a true joy of mine. I've been a part of an aerial/physical theatre production that was performed in Scotland at the Fringe festival, and in California, I've trained with an amazing Las Vegas aerialist and learned how to play on new contraptions such as rope and rings. I look forward to sharing my passions with you!

Sacha H. Los Angeles, CA

About Me

I was born in France, but moved to Los Angeles at the age of three. After attending the Lycée International de Los Angeles for most of my school years, I moved back to France and attended the Rouen Business School there.

Working and studying at the same time has proven to be challenging, but has allowed me to excel in time management, understanding priorities, and getting tasks (whether in school or at work) done well and efficiently. My last work required a lot of interaction with personal and clients as well as being able to rapidly respond to customer questions over the phone. While this was in French, I was able to develop similar skills in English while working as a telemarketer in Los Angeles. I was also working as an English Instructor in a French Junior High School during my lunch breaks in Normandy. I had four different groups of students for thirty minutes each with the objective of writing and coordinating a Christmas play in front of the entire school.
