About Cindy

Hello, my name is Cindy and I am a vocal and instrumental instructor. I received my BA and MAT degrees from Pepperdine University. I have taught privately for over 25 years in the San Fernando Valley, along with Pasadena and Simi Valley areas. During college I performed in several operas including The Magic Flute and Hansel and Gretel with the Burbank Symphony Orchestra. After college, I was a member of Musical Americans, a select touring group from Southern California under the direction of K. Gene Simmonds that toured South America and Japan. I also served as a minister of music at a local church for several years.

I began playing the piano at the age of 7. My mother and sister were taking lessons and, when they had finished practicing I would go into the piano and play what ...

Thank you!

Joseph S. Los Angeles, CA

My teaching style is a very traditional. To the beginning student I stress the importance of proper technique, perfect sound production, reading skill, and classical interpretation.

Once a rudimentary instrumental skill is achieved we then can start exploring the work of America's great Jazz masters and tackle the skills necessary to play wonderful and exciting Jazz improvisations!

I also will be teaching music theory, ear training, and song analysis along the way!

About Ray


My name is Ray - I'm 26 years old, born in Queens NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at Aaron Copeland School of Music college preparatory program. Here I was also introduced to Jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. I went on to study Electronic Production & Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and quickly became a very sought after studio musician and performer.

I've been successfully teaching many instruments and proficiency levels for over 12 years now. I can say with pride that it is my passion, and I anticipate teaching being a very important part of the rest of my life.

I enjoy reading science, math, and philosophy, and in addition to teaching am currently working as a pop music ...

My son and daughter both take from Ray and they love him!!! My daughter started with him after she had had 2 other teachers and she improved immediately. She loves going to Ray because he teaches her to play the songs that she likes. Now she plays so many songs for memory!! My son loves going to piano and is always excited to see Ray.

Classical Guitar

When I started taking lessons from Ray I was playing the electric guitar, although I had a classical guitar in my house I did not play it that often. I took my classical guitar once to class and then I started to learn how to play the classical guitar. I went from playing basic peaces of music to playing Minuet in G in a short time. From playing electric guitar about 3 or 4 years to playing classical music in about 1.5 to 2 years. Ray has helped me to increase my knowledge of music.

I have played clarinet for over 30 years and can help a young student progress with his/her work/band.

About Mike

Patience, intelligence, an easy-going nature and a sense of humor are probably my strongest selling points as a tutor. I graduated cum laude from CSULB in 1991 and have worked a number of jobs since then, all the while pursuing my passion for music. I've played clarinet, guitar, sax, keyboards and other instruments and toured in Europe and the U.S. in different kinds of bands. I've recorded and played on several albums, and many songs I've written or co-written have appeared in movies and TV shows.

And, finally, my college degree was a B.A. in Liberal Studies with a Math concentration, so I certainly know my way around a math book! One thing I think I'm good at is helping a student understanding something by explaining it in different ways. It's pretty ...
