Milton J. Corona, CA

About Milton

Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American & African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a current Vocal ...

Wonderful instructor! Milton has a great attitude and is a joy to be around. My son loves learning from him and we are very thankful for finding such a patient, creative and skilled instructor. Student's Review - Milton is an exciting and fun guitar teacher. He has exceeded expectations and made otherwise bland lessons interesting and fun. He is always quippy and easy to be around. Having him as an instructor has made me grow to love the guitar even more.

Milton is a great teacher! He explains everything, teaches you theory and proper techniques. He is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable. He pushes you out of your comfort zone, but in a good way so that you can grow as a singer. I am very glad I chose to take lessons with him!

About John

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a portable grand keyboard if I am traveling to a lesson. I have plenty of electric guitars and amplifiers available.

*** Specialties ***
I focus on visual, kinesthetic, and aural techniques and practices in my lessons, to build a solid foundation, understanding, and love for music. I am very interested in Kodaly's method of inner hearing and music literacy. I also use ideas from Dalcroze and Orff to make sure my students become well-rounded. I strive to teach at the best of my ability, work hard, and share my love for music with others.

William B. Riverside, CA

About William

I am a guitarist, composer and teacher specializing in classical guitar and Latin American music. I have loved music for all of my life and my primary expression of that love is playing guitar. I currently teach private guitar lessons, lecture at San Bernardino Valley College and work as a freelance performer in the Inland Empire and greater Los Angeles area.

I began my study of music at the age of thirteen when I taught myself how to play folk, rock and blues guitar. Though, to be honest, I didn't just teach myself. I had many friends who played guitar who would show me songs or correct mistakes in the songs I had learned from the internet. I remember thinking that music had a special ability to bring people together, and I became determined to understand what exactly it was that ...

Victoria is really nice and definitely patient. She made it comfortable for me from the first meeting. It takes a good teacher to make the fundamental part of learning any instrument exciting which is exactly what Victoria does. Her tutoring makes me hopeful for my musical future. If you're looking to learn how to play the piano you can't go wrong with her.

We are very blessed!

We have been very pleased with our flute teacher. I have had the privilege of Victoria's instruction for 3.5 years. Victoria is fun, patient and energetic. She is reliable and flexible at the same time, which we appreciate. She works on hard passages diligently with me until I am confidant. We consider it a huge plus that she comes to our home for lessons. We are very blessed to have such a wonderful teacher.

Excellent Acting Coach, Teacher, Trainer

I have had a great experience as a student of Mara Madison. She has a lot of industry knowledge and industry experience helping me cut through what's most important when it comes to acting for film, stage, and commercials. I feel really fortunate to be working with her and her husband Marvin.

Mara is a great teacher and coach, very encouraging, and professional. She's always prepared with lesson plans, acting activities, and handouts all customized to my level and progress in her course.

Mara is not teaching me theories, but real world experience honed from years of practicing her craft and through knowledge passed on from her parents who were entrenched in film and theater and tops in their respective industry.

Mara has helped me increase my confidence in front of audiences, become more entertaining, reduce my inhibition and shyness. You will be happy if get a chance to work with Mara. I am so glad to be learning from her.
