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 teacher!

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.

Frank V. La Habra, CA

About Frank

ABOUT MYSELF
I started late on the guitar in a family of musicians. I picked up the guitar when I was 18 years old when I found an old acoustic at my grandfather’s house. From then I was self taught listening to Punk Rock, New Wave, and learning from friends. My love for the instrument and music drove me to really apply myself to really learning how to play. I would sit and just be creative, writing my own songs and putting little back yard bands together with my cousin and friends. Then, it was time for college and had to make a decision on what to study. Music was my passion and I never really taken a lesson before. I prepared myself by studying with Stephan Ferrara-Grand in San Clemente,CA for a short time to audition into the music program. I passed! I graduated with a ...

Comfortable learning from Frank

Frank has a wonderful personality. I am so much at ease learning from Frank. His style of teaching tips and techniques has made it so much easier for learning rather than having a child playing away and not know the base of an instrument. His patience and understanding is amazing. He is very easy to communicate with and not forgetting how in tuned he is with his student that he picks up things that even I do not know I am doing wrong. Thanks for that. I know for sure I will not be changing to another music teacher.

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.

Last year, I had the opportunity to study with Christian at CSU Northridge. Christian is one of the finest musicians I have come across in the years that I have been playing music. Not only does he have impressive skills with the guitar, he also has knowledge in the history of the guitar and music theory. When he was studying at CSUN, I was able to have some lessons with Christian on a baroque piece that was giving me trouble. First, I'd like to mention how patient he was with me when I was frustrated and lost in the music. Also, I was surprised at how much he knew about the music as he explained what was going on in the piece and why. Oh... did I mention that I had some AWESOME results after ONE lesson??? Do yourself the favor and check this guy out!

Christian has been teaching our two sons (Age 11 and 8) for the summer and has performed wonderfully as both instructor and motivator. His demeanor is excellent with the kids. And I greatly appreciate that he is teaching them music reading, music appreciation and music theory -- not just how to play the guitar. More importantly, the kids are having a great time.

Joseph R. Downey, CA

About Joseph

Joseph R. has 5 years of experience teaching students elementary, middle school-aged children and adults on to how to play keyboard, guitar, flute and saxophone while sharing his learning experience with them as a self-taught saxophone and flute player and his more conventional education on piano and guitar.

Joe started developing his musical talent through piano lessons at the age of 7. After only a year of formal study, he began to experiment with other instruments such as the bamboo flute, the guitar and the drums. When he moved to the United States at the age of 13, he was introduced to the school€™s band where he chose to hone his skills with the flute. Since then, he has been exposed to classical and symphonic repertoire. During high school, he joined the marching band ...
