Clarissa N. Los Angeles, CA

About Clarissa

I studied piano in Germany with Lola Poirier (a student of the famous Alfred Cortot) for 11 years, then with Phillip Evans in New York (professor at the Manhattan School of Music) and finally with world-renowned concert pianist Eugene Liszt at Carnegie-Mellon University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance with a Minor in Child Pedagogy.

For the past twenty eight years I have been teaching students of all levels and ages, incorporating some of my former teachers' methods with my own teaching style. I am passionate about awakening a hunger in each of my students for bringing and keeping music in their lives forever. I don't look at my students as children who play an instrument, but as young artists on the road to self-discovery and musical fulfillment! ...

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!

Fabulous cello teacher!!! We are so pleased that our daughter is taking lessons from Arlette. When our daughter wanted to learn cello (2 years ago), Arlette came highly recommended. We were not disappointed! Arlette teaches all aspects of playing the cello, including music theory, and developing musically. She's passionate, caring, patient every step of the way, inspirational, and makes it so much fun!--consequently, my girl recently auditioned and was accepted to play in a high school orchestra (she's a middle school student). She loves playing cello!

Arlette is a wonderful teacher and has really clicked with my daughter. My daughter looks forward to her lesson each week. She is teaching her how to read and understand the music as well as how to play the cello. Here sessions are very relaxed and fun and I am confident that my daughter will not only learn how to play the cello, but love playing the cello. I can see how she passes that passion on to the student. If you are looking for a fun, passionate and well education teacher to work with your children, she is the one.

Sincerely,

Karynn Bonner

I first began studying with Arlette when I was a young girl who knew nothing about reading music. She was an amazing teacher for me as a young girl, and continued to be as I grew up. Arlette has taught me and helped me hone my technique and musicality, from the beginning before I could hold a bow through the years and improvements.

About Mira

After twenty years of violin and viola performance under the tutelage of instructors from the LA Opera, the Juilliard School, the Cincinnati Conservatory, as well as lifelong piano studies, I've come to see that music education is in itself a real art.

I began tutoring (and now teaching) in 2005, teaching my first music students in 2008. I see that success in an instrument lies in tapping into students' passions for motivation and incorporating mindfulness practice for improved concentration. I not only work to help students' musical abilities grow - I utilize this practice as a holistic system for improving discipline, creative capacity and self-esteem.

Though I graduated cum laude from Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service rather than a music ...

Mira is a gem of a music teacher

Mira has been fabulous, she puts in extra effort and attention in developing lesson plans that are tailored to your individual needs as a violinist. She is exceptionally knowledgable in all aspects of the technique that goes into playing. From posture, bowing, and instrument technicalities, to playing notes correctly and smoothly, she is a gem of a musician.

In addition, she is articulate, thoughtful, professional, and above all, she genuinely cares about your performance and ability to improve as a musician.

I look forward to working with her in the near and distant future, and highly recommend her, whether you are starting as a beginner, or just getting back into playing the violin. Great job!

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
