About Me

Hailed by the New York Times for his “sweet intensity” and “insinuating smoothness,” Michael, woodwind specialist, is a prolific performer from solo and chamber concerts to pit-orchestras in musical theater and film recording sessions. He began playing saxophone at the age of 10 and picked up several new instruments along the way, recently completing a doctorate in Musical Performance from the University of Southern California. Michael is passionately dedicated to teaching, with over 10 years experience teaching 1 on 1 students, as well as chamber groups and masterclasses. Michael's diverse experience and fluency in many musical styles promises to provide a personalized and enriching experience tailored specifically to the student.

*** Lesson Details ***
The most important goal for me as a teacher is passing along the love that I have for music, and helping to make it a meaningful part of my students’ lives. It is my passion to help the student thrive in his studies, realize her potential, and be forever transformed by the experience.

As an instructor, I endeavor to relate to the student experience as much as possible by recalling my own studies, so that I may anticipate obstacles to motivation and learning, communicate effectively, and maximize the educational process. Every student-teacher relationship is unique and must be specifically designed and guided according to the student’s needs, abilities, and personal goals. The musical interests a student brings with him or her are a bridge to training on an instrument, and are essential in developing skills in listening, reading musical language, playing by ear, and improvising.

Cory B. Riverside, CA

Subjects Taught

Bassoon, Clarinet, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Oboe, Piano

About Me

I am a classically trained performer with a Master's degree from London's Royal College of Music. I love finding each student's own learning style to tailor the experience, and I encourage my students to make their own decisions about musical expression (with plenty of guidance, of course!).

In my work as a performer I have played with orchestras all over the world, from the South London Sinfonia to the Bombay Chamber Orchestra. My musical life is full of variety, and I think that the experiences I've had as a musician make me a creative and thoughtful teacher.

*** Lesson Details ***
I wouldn't call myself strict, but I do have high standards. I expect my students to put in the work at home, so that we can get the most out of lesson time. We will learn simple tunes in the very first lesson, and I will always balance technical exercises with fun. (Though I do think a lot of exercises are fun too!) After a few months we will have a solid foundation of music theory and will have developed your music reading abilities considerably. We will have worked on a great technical foundation of scales and exercises, so that your fingers won't fail you. We will also be delving in to longer and more complex tunes, and considering the possibility of some form of casual public or in-home performance, for you to show your family and friends what you've learned!

Shella Z. Palm Desert, CA

Subjects Taught

Acting, Broadway Singing, Flute, Music Performance, Music Theory, Opera Voice, Piano, Singing, Songwriting, Speaking Voice, Theater Acting

About Me

I have been teaching private lessons to children and adults for over 18 years. My experience in private teaching, public school classrooms (credentialed music teacher - band and choir) and colleges (music professor - theory and history) render me very versatile in understanding the various factors which impact individual learning and motivation. My students thoroughly enjoy their lessons and have a very long-standing continuation in pursuing their goals as a result. Discontinuation of lessons has much to do with uninspired teaching and student-teacher disconnect. My students feel very understood and my authenticity in communication is refreshing for many.

I am not a teacher who pushes students who are not interested into doing competitions, however, I sincerely support and challenge each student with their own goals and ambitions. My students have won awards and performed in many competitions, live performances and television.

I'm a classically trained musician who has also taken it to deeper levels by investigating and thoroughly researching other methodologies which are both technically sound and utilize healthy approaches to sustain performance health and longevity. Inappropriate technique or unhealthy approaches to technique can actually limit or permanently damage your ability to sing or play. As such, healthy technique is my highest priority.

I do follow a structured repertoire, however, I am very flexible in meeting the interests and needs of individual students. My students are not stifled by unilateral methodology approaches. my expertise in the music field also offers my students deeper insight into the cultural, historical, and practical applications of everything they study with me. My students learn theory and composition as part of their instrument lessons.

I highly recommend piano lessons for all voice students as well. This renders them much more able to help themselves rehearse at home. CDs are utilized, but basic keyboarding skills are a true essential for any serious vocal student. However, vocal lessons are offered independently of piano lessons. The decision to take both is up to the student.

Private Lessons Offered: Voice, Piano, Composition, Music Theory, Song-Writing.

Group lessons in history, theory, composition, chorus/show choir, band or group piano are also available. Specialized arrangements for homeschool groups are offered as well.
