About Kathryn

If you want to act or sing as a profession or for fun, or are auditioning to get into a particular high school of performing arts or college or have professional auditions, I can help. If you have a child one who is, clearly, a performer, send them in and we will have a blast! I have been singing, recording and acting my entire life. I am fortunate to work as a singer and songwriter. I teach young people and adults and I love it. I will collaborate with you to bring your performance to life. I believe every person has a place in my studio. Just one thing about me. I'm really nice. I teach from a place of thinking anything is possible. I don't crush dreams. I have been in show business so long that I know anything IS ...

Kathryn is the real deal! I have never acted before and thought I'd like to give it a try. She has this ability to help you believe in yourself in such a way that after the first session I knew if I wanted to pursue acting full time Kathryn would help me make that happen. After working with her I also walked away feeling enlivened. Kathryn took me under her wing and taught me a great deal in a short amount of time. She's also grown up in the industry so her knowledge is vast and priceless.

Kathryn rocks! A wonderful teacher!

Kathryn is teaching my young daughter to sing and we feel very blessed to have found her. She has a really great teaching style that made both me and my daughter quickly feel at ease. She has an incredible background and her technical skills and knowledge are first rate. But she is also fun, spontaneous, and really knows how to interact with and inspire my child. I could go on and on about the world of music and excitement she has opened for us. But in a nutshell, if you have a chance to study with Kathryn you will be very glad you did! The home studio is lovely & wonderfully equipped - its just made for musicians! 5 Stars!!
Jim T. Fairfax, CA

About Jim

My career in music began at an early age (four!) with classical piano lessons until the age of thirteen. After expanding my musical horizons in high school listening to jazz, blues and rock I attended Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA where I studied jazz & music theory with renowned jazz educator Ray Brown and jazz piano with Paul Nagle who has worked with Grammy award winning singer Bobby McFerrin among many others. I have been performing solo and in groups since the Eighties in a variety of different genres including rock, jazz, blues, r&b, funk, reggae and everything in between! Performing with such artists as Bob Weir (Grateful Dead), Dan Hicks, David Grisman, Tommy Castro, Eric McFadden, Mark Karan & Vinyl I have appeared at most of the major venues in the Bay Area including the ...

Piano
Great teacher for children, including jazz

Our 3 kids have taken piano lessons at our house with Jim for 6 years. Jim is a unique piano teacher, the kind that is hard to find in the bay area. He teaches classical music to beginners and confirmed students and goes to your house to teach. His training was in classical music, and he knows very well that it takes time and effort to get there, he is patient and encouraging, our kids NEVER felt pressured by him and still learned how to play in an exponential way. Thanks to Jim, they like to play for themselves AND in front of other people, which is one of Jim's important goals. Jim is now a renowned jazz piano player and cofounder of a band (Tre Mojo's) and we are always invited in his gigs when they take play in the bay area. Our son is learning jazz with him, it has been impressive to watch and hear, after a year he does know the jazz harmonies and can do impros. Every spring, Jim organizes a very nice recital where all his students come and perform various types of music (from Beethoven, Chopin, to the Beatles, to jazz impro. from beginner to professional level). Jim basically taught our children to play music with no stress, no competition, and still at a high level. Besides, Jim is highly professional, has NEVER been late, and always does what he says and -we believe- says what he thinks. There has never been a bump in our relationship. We would highly recommend him as a piano teacher.

About Donna

I love to sing, and I have a passion for teaching students to sing well. I have sung in choruses all my life, and have been inspired by fine conductors and great composers. I am certain that music enlivens my life like nothing else, and it can do that for everyone. Whether you sing in the shower, or in the choir, or with a few friends, or in an opera, you can find your song. Learning to play the piano, from the very beginning, or picking up where you left off in the past, will bring a spark to your life. Whether you want to play for yourself or some friends, or want to get on track to becoming a concert pianist, music will enrich your life. My students develop an appreciation for music of the Renaissance up through the 21st century. They are willing to delve into exciting territory ...

Very nice singing classes

Donna is a very warm teacher, her way of teaching is very encouraging and supportive. I enjoyed her classes and learned a lot, more than only singing. I would surely recommend her as a teacher.

Donna is a great teacher. Gives me the direction I need to focus and progress and enough freedom to experiment with what I'm trying to learn. She also reveals some of mystery of how music works.

Feedback for Donna

Donna's method of teaching gets quick results. She simplifies, presents and reinforces concepts such that I've managed to make progress with each lesson. Highly intelligent yet flexible, Donna was quick to analyze my learning process/style. Therefore, when I do falter, she knows exactly why - and helps me make adjustments.

Ben is fabulous. My son is 5, nearly 6, and Ben he loves his drum lessons with Ben. Without much prompting from mom and dad, our boy has decided that he loves rock n' roll and Ben has really channeled that enthusiasm. He's learning notations, theory, and rhythm. And having a great time doing it. Thank you Ben!

Great teacher in a great environment!

Ben has been teaching my son Jack for the last seven months. Jack leaves each lesson with more excitement for the drums than the previous week. Ben's enthusiasm for music is infectious! Jack has improved tremendously since initially starting lessons with Ben. Each lesson is structured very methodically and he gives a very well rounded approach, covering rudiments, music theory, and drumset studies.
I would recommend Ben for anyone interested in taking drum lessons.

Great with children

My son (7) very much enjoys going to Ben's place for his drumming lessons because Ben makes the lesson enjoyable. Ben is serious and dedicated and the progression in the lessons has been just right. There's a lot of repetition in the beginning, but Ben still manages to keep my son interested and attentive. I can highly recommend him.
