About Vanessa

As a vocal teacher I focus on the correct method to singing that helps keep your voice beautiful and healthy.
I earned my bachelors degree in music education with an emphasis in vocals. I learned music appreciation, theory, history, choral singing and classical voice training.
I love music and cannot picture life without it. Music is an expression of life! I also love to teach music to others as I feel I'm passing on a great gift.

*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher I fall somewhere in between strict and laid back. For instance, if you don't practice I won't scold you, but I will remind you that you can only be as good as you work to be. If you don't want to put in the effort you will waste your time and money, as well as not receive the results that you ...

Fun and engaging! She challenges my daughter with vocal drills and positive feedback. She also motivates my daughter to perfect classic Academy Award-winning ballad music like EY Harburg 'Over the Rainbow'. Great use of technology to keep my child practicing with in-home (in real time) singing lesson sent directly to my email for my daughter to listen during her practice. She has always been on time, willing to accommodate date change and extremely friendly. Highly recommend.

Vanessa is a very good voice teacher. She is talented, fun, patient, and encouraging. Her classes are interesting - we do a mixture of technique/skills and fun songs. I look forward to her class every week, and my singing has improved a lot since I started my lessons with her. I really like Vanessa as my voice teacher.

Jeff is a great guitar teacher. He knows everything about the guitar and music theory. Whenever I have a question, Jeff always goes into great detail to explain everything to make I understand it well. I have been with Jeff for almost a year and my playing and understanding of the guitar has greatly improved. Jeff also has a great record collection. Thank you Jeff and see you next week for my lesson!

Jeff is the Man!

I took lessons from Jeff on and off for about 15yrs. I started off on the bass and then tried learning some guitar. I really had a great time learning how to play the bass from Jeff, he makes it really fun and relevant to your needs. Some days, I really wanted to learn a song I heard on the radio or from a favorite band, and he was instantly able to teach it to me. Jeff is a great guy and really knows how to teach guitar. I would definitely recommend taking lessons from Jeff. He will go at your pace, and you will have a blast learning how to play the guitar!

Rock players: learn something about Jazz!

I came to Jeff as a rock player with /some/ skill, but stuck in the "pentatonic box". Jeff introduced me to the infinite possibilities of Jazz. I wasn't the most diligent student in the world, and even still, I learned some of the basics: how to read a lead sheet, how Jazz maps to the electric guitar, how to play faster, and /when/ to play faster. Jeff introduced me to some essential figures from the Jazz canon: Miles Davis, Freddie Hubbard, Jobim. In retrospect, the most important takeaway from "Jeff lessons" was ear training. He has a clever set of techniques for learning to hear and recognize intervals. Take lessons with Jeff and you'll learn how build chords, and to easily pick apart a piece of music and transcribe it. On top of all that, he's a pretty cool guy. :) Solid gold!

About Byron

Music and music teaching is my first love and passion in life. (Feel free to check out my video and music!) To be able to study and play the guitar for the last 11 years has been an immense blessing! I am a guitar teacher with a degree in music from Biola University, La Mirada. I have been teaching lessons privately almost 9 years now. I am trained in various styles of guitar music including classical, jazz, pop, rock, blues, and finger-style on both acoustic and electric guitars. My musical journey began in the 6th grade when my parents purchased a nylon string classical guitar for me. Throughout my high school and college years I participated in contemporary rock ensembles for corporate worship at my church and other churches. This included leading and singing as well. While enrolled at ...

Byron is an amazing teacher! Thanks to Byron, our son, who is autistic-high functioning, is learning far more than how to play the guitar. He is learning to sit in a chair for a half an hour, is learning to focus on notes and strings, and is learning to love music! It’s an amazing sight to see! We are grateful that our son, and others with special needs, can also learn to play the guitar. We appreciate Byron’s patience and fun approach. Teachers with his character and abilities are hard to find. Byron is a true blessing and gifted teacher. We highly recommend him to everyone!

Great guitar lessons

Mr. Byron has been the perfect match for both my boys! He began teaching my 10 year old a year ago. Before, Mr. Byron, my son had been through 2 other guitar teachers but neither one could get him to play. Mr. Byron was able to strike my son's interest by tapping into songs he enjoyed listening to and later bringing them to life on the guitar. As a result of Mr. Byron's great teachings, my 6 year old son was inspired to begin ukulele lessons with him. Mr. Byron is a great teacher! His passion and love for music will definitely inspire yet challange his students to more than meet their goals!

Excellent with kids!

Our son has had Byron for 2 1/2 years now and really enjoys having him as his guitar teacher. He always gives us feedback as to how he is doing and really engages our son during his lessons. We highly recommend him as a teacher in this capacity.

Piano
Very impressed by Mrs. V.

I recently started taking lessons with Mrs. V and already feel like I'm progressing in my piano skills. Mrs. V exudes class and elegance, and you feel a sense of comfort and warmth upon meeting her. She is very knowledgeable in her craft, and the advice and tips she has given me during my lessons has really helped me with the pieces I'm currently learning. She's very patient and takes her time with you. She also really gets to know you as a person, which I find important.

I love that Mrs. V is also a composer and knows music theory. I have been struggling with theory for years, and she has been helping to educate me on theory during my lesson. She even assigns theory homework, which gives me that extra push to learn more. I am always encouraged to take notes during class as well. Mrs. V is just filled with information and it excites me to learn things I've never know before about piano technique, theory, and even the structure of a piano and how it works.

Mrs. V always encourages students to play in annual recitals, and I am looking forward to playing in the next one. My experience as a whole with Mrs. V has been great. I am very impressed with her thus far. I would recommend her to anyone who is serious about honing their piano skills.
