Tatiana K. Los Angeles, CA

About Tatiana

Originally from Moscow, Russia I started my training in Classical music. However, growing up and listening to Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Pink Floyd, Queen etc. I wanted to learn more about that kind of music. My curiosity and passion led me all the way to another continent where I was admitted to the University of Miami's Jazz Vocal Department at the age of 16.
While I was at school I realized that I not only wanted to perform, but also write music. After graduation I moved to NYC to pursue being a singer/songwriter. Since then I've recorded 3 albums and have been actively recording, producing, and performing ever since. I am currently working on a new project, which has gathered the attention of NPR, WSJ and The American Songwriter.

Tatiana is an awesome teacher

I have been taking singing lessons with Tatiana for 4 months now and she is such an amazing teacher. She is very encouraging and teaches in a nice pace. She pinpoints what I should work on and breaks it down so easily. Each time I finish a lesson with her, I feel so confidant. Because of her breathing and voice exercise, I am now able to reach pitches that I wasn't able to before. Tatiana is Awesome! I highly recommend her :)

Tatiana is amazing!

I have been taking singing lessons with Tatiana for about 6 months now and I can't even believe how much I've learned! She is a great teacher - very patient, talented, knowledgeable and encouraging. Since I've been working with Tatiana, I feel more confident about my singing and my technique is a lot better. I enjoy taking lessons with her because they are relaxed and fun, but at the same time very productive. It's just a great time overall!

About Teri

I teach students of all ages in a relaxed, encouraging, and fun way- but with the structure many beginners need to reach their goals and with the background of a professional singer! Students will see themselves making progress and reaching set goals! This encourages them to continue on their musical journey - becoming the very best they can be! We will also learn fun popular songs and look for opportunities to sing them. We will also learn many styles of pop singing as well -- from pop to rock to R&B to country & more! From beginners and just-for-fun singers to singer/songwriters to pros, each student will be able to learn the skills they need to sing from their heart and find their own true voice.

Teri is a premier vocal coach. When I first came to her, I didn't know what I was doing; I knew I had some talent, but didn't know how to hone it. Teri was just the person I needed. A vocalist herself from the school of hard knocks, Teri's real life artist experiences give her unique insights into what makes a vocalist tick and how to discover and nurture one's artistry. She has an excellent ear and is a phenomenal teacher. Teri has an upbeat style; always positive and encouraging, but also honest and straightforward. Teri tells it like it is out of love for the art form and her students. She's a vocal coach extraordinaire, and I highly recommend her.

When I first started lessons with Teri, I could barely be heard and had absolutely no technical skill, or even really the confidence to sing. I now am able to use the techniques Teri has taught me and have completely completely made over my sound as well as my confidence! I absolutely would recommend Teri as a voice teacher; she has taught me so much and always with stellar enthusiasm and expertise. I look forward to continuing lessons with her in the future!

Patient and Caring

Our experience with Brian as piano teacher to our two children has been incredible. He has brought each of them along at their own pace and they have learned to play very well. Brian has always been patient and kind.
This has been particularly important with our (now) 8 year old son who is autistic. He can get easily distracted, frustrated, bored, or just plain ornery and uncooperative. Mr. Brian has always exhibited great patience toward him, taking breaks when necessary and generally bringing our son along at his own pace--and our son has shown remarkable progress.
We highly recommend Brian as a piano teacher.

Great All-Around

Brian is an awesome music teacher. He is kind, patient, knowledgeable about music theory and a pleasure to be around. He teaches me piano, and is good about introducing new pieces to me, as well as teaching me the more complex nuances within each piece.

He is also great with kids! I have 2 little ones, and whenever they happen to be around for my lesson time, Brian keeps them engaged with music. Whether it's trying to play something themselves on the piano, accompanying them on the guitar, or bringing fun music-related props, Brian makes it fun

I highly recommend Brian as a piano teacher, and he is also a very talented guitarist! 5*!

Mauricio is a very patient guitar instructor. The instruction my daughter received was her first experience playing any instrument. Her enthusiasm for each lesson was a reflection of Mauricio's enthusiasm to teach. Music is his passion and it was clear to me that his enthusiasm for music was evident in his instruction.

Mauricio is an awesome teacher! He really takes his time to relate and encourage the kids to find their musical path, my oldest son has ADHD, Mauricio encouraged him to try all kinds of instruments until he found the one he truly likes, not only did the lessons help his focused and concentration but he enjoys them he has fun at each lesson, all while learning form a master in the musical arts. My boys are 8 and 7 and look forward to each lesson.

Delilah is an amazing violinist whose passion for music is contagious. I am almost 25 years old and six months ago I picked up a violin for the very first time. Playing this instrument was a life-long dream that I finally decided to pursue and Delilah's encouragement and support has helped keep me going. I was nervous to begin lessons because my memories of playing the guitar was of the process becoming less about artistic exploration and more about conforming to a rigorous routine that I soon turned against. My experiences with the violin have been extraordinarily different, thanks to Delilah.

I love Delilah! She always has useful tips and suggestions that are so helpful. I have been playing several years and have taken lessons and classes elsewhere. She introduced me to practice techniques that make conquering a new piece much, much quicker and easier. Now I am way more confident with my instrument
