AMAZING teacher!

Jill is in a class of her own where it comes to teaching piano! She is incredible with kids, has tons of patience, is gentle yet firm enough to redirect an active 8 year olds attention. I was worried that my sons interest in restarting piano lessons would dwindle, as it had with his previous teacher, but Jill is a breath of fresh air, she is energetic, enthusiastic and knows just how to keep him motivated! Her love, respect and knowledge of music are evident. She makes each lesson fun and enjoyable. My son loves practicing and looks forward to his lessons... that speaks volumes. Simply put she's an awesome teacher whom I highly recommend.
Emerson W. Woodland Hills, CA

About Emerson

Ever since I received my first drum set from my family at age 8 I've been studying and playing percussion and drums. Immediately it became one of my passions in life.
In elementary school I expanded my musical circle and met friends who I still play music with today. I played drums for bands in elementary school, middle school and high school, including the school jazz ensembles and marching band. In my senior year of high school I joined Camerata (advanced boys & girls choir) as a tenor. I have also been part of various orchestras, concert bands, alternative, rock, jazz, and even metal ensembles with original music. Some of the notable bands I've performed with and/or still perform with are: Jr. Philharmonic Orchestra of California, San Fernando Valley Symphony, Los ...

excellent instructor for drums and piano!

Ryan is an exceptional music instructor. He has been giving guidance to my 13 year old son on drums and piano for 3-4 months and my son's abilities have dramatically soared. Ryan is equally talented on both instruments and offers top notch dual instruction. Ryan is a true musician and knows how to communicate the language of music on various levels to my son. He observes and instructs accordingly.
My son is so excited after each lesson that he comes home and practices both instruments on his own, without having to be prompted. My son plays both instruments now with so much more style and exuberance. Ryan is extremely professional, soft spoken and gifted on his own. I would highly recommend Ryan as a music instructor for kids and adults.

Ryan is an excellent teacher. Thanks to his amazing knowledge of the subject matter, impressive creativity, support and patience, my son always looks forward to Ryan's lessons. Ryan always supports my son's passion to learn to play the piano and drums, and he successfully manages to direct my son's energy into something productive, which motivates my son to learn even more. So, thank you, Ryan, for everything!

Sheila S. Woodland Hills, CA

About Sheila

I have earned a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from the University of Redlands. As a professional singer, I have performed in numerous concerts and operas. I've sung in both choral and solo settings, as well as fully staged productions. Throughout my education, I have played piano and even participated in Certificate of Merit testing. These experiences have all helped shape me into a well rounded singer.

In lessons, I devote equal amounts of time to technique and repertoire. We will always begin by warming up, and working on some exercises. Then we will implement your new techniques into your repertoire, which I will tailor to your specific needs and wants.

Above all, though, I want to help you realize your dreams as a musician! Looking forward to getting ...

Excellent tutor for my son

Sheila has been teaching my seven year old son German, and I can't say enough good things about her. She is very professional and great with kids, even shy ones like my son. She brings games and makes things interesting, so he doesn't get bored. She is always very prompt and extremely reliable. She is truly excellent in every aspect. So glad we found her!

About ELENA

Hello!
Music is my life and my biggest passion. I've been a working musician and a teacher for several years and there's nothing more rewarding than sharing all I've learned so far with my students, to nurture their goals and aspirations and to make them aware of the great instrument they already possess.

Here's more about me and my education:
I was born and raised in Italy and have been singing since I was a child but started a formal training during my teenage years with a private coach. During college, while studying Psychology at the University of Florence, I attended 2 different private music schools in Florence and Bologna, since it was not possible at the time to study music in College. There I kept studying vocal technique, solfege, classical guitar and ...

Our kids love Elena, my wife and I have know her for a few years. She has taken our two boys from no musical ability to being able to sing beautifully. Now they love doing it, they have some opportunities to sing at school and the oldest (14) keeps talking about having his own band when he grows up! I didn't know she did guitar lessons as well, but another friend of ours started taking guitar lessons (in her 40s, I should add) and she's enthusiastic about it. Teaching is a gift that Elena certainly has! We highly recommend her.

As someone who has taken guitar lessons on and off for the past 10 years it was very refreshing to have a teacher like Elena. She provides great instruction, patience and enthusiasm for her craft.

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.
