Best classical guitar teacher ever! Alex is a very easy-going, super friendly and straightforward teacher. He has an amazing ability to make complicated guitar techniques into very easy tasks. I surprised how much I learned just from his first lesson and how much I improved in a week. I would recommend any student regardless your age and level to study with him. You will get your money worth.

2nd Lesson

Alex is wonderful…he has such a feeling for music and being sure his pupils learn properly…one important thing that impressed me…he asked me a very good question, "do you want to learn easily or do you want to struggle learning?"…I have long nails and he explained when hitting the keys, it is very difficult to hold the wrist and hit the key properly….so I have filed my nails down…LOL….because I want to learn piano easily and most importantly learn the proper etiquette when playing.. He is a great teacher..and he teaches with passion...

Love of Music

Had my first lesson with Alex and it was great. He started out showing me what the different symbols mean and the notes. I am so glad he is teaching me how to read music, its very important. Its all very basic now but feel with knowledge of the basics it will help me understand future lessons easily…..looking forward to my next lesson…..in the meantime, drawing the Cleff, Notes and Staffs to be sure I understand, per his instructions…Love it!
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 gave

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.

About Timothy

Music & Meditation - My two favorite things ;-) Music is not complicated...it's fun. Take lessons with me and i'll have you playing chords to your favorite songs within a few sessions, even if u are shy or have no prior experience. My home has a calm relaxing environment free of pressure. I bring this energy with me when i teach at your home. Meditation is most likely not what you think it is. Many individuals naturally slip into meditation without even know what it is. Many individuals suffer from tremendous amounts of stress and need a healthy way to deal with it. I can help you. I can guide you. I will help you deal with stress. I will help you remain calm and blissful in times of chaos and confusion.
