About Elise
I am a professional, classically trained soprano with a love for theater and the arts! In addition to being a performer, I also love teaching music lessons. My private vocal studio includes a range of students from young children to adults, who vary in musical aspirations and sing in many different styles, including opera, art song, jazz, blues, pop, and musical theater. My students have gone on to sing on Broadway, pursue music and theater degrees, compete and win competitions. I have extensive training and knowledge of proper vocal use, as well as a passion for teaching my students self expression through music. My students are given every opportunity to become well-rounded, performing musicians, and my goal is to give students the tools to become life long, passionate musicians themselves!

About Jake
Hello!

I am currently earning a masters degree in viola performance at The Hartt School, with separate emphases in music theory, conducting, and strings pedagogy.

In the past year, I was a teaching artist at the Incredible Children's Art Network in Santa Barbara, where I was exposed to many teaching methods and techniques, among them the El Sistema method of strings pedagogy. I was also a musical mentor at Santa Barbara Strings, where I led string sectionals, and coached chamber music groups.

Teaching is a great opportunity to get to know a young artist. My primary goal as a teacher has always been to help my students discover their own musical voices. In our lessons together, we will explore your personal musical interests, and I will also introduce you to an applied technical approach to the viola and violin, which I will cater
to your individual technical and musical needs!

My daughter began her first year of violin lessons with Jake at her school when she was in 4th grade . She enjoyed taking lessons with him and remembers discussions they had about the history of the violin. She said he was a good teacher - patient and explained things well. She received a good fundamental background in the violin and that has carried over to her continuing into her second year of lessons.

Fantastic teacher! I worked with Jake at the Incredible Children's Art Network (formerly of Santa Barbara, CA) and had watched Jake build positive healthy relationships with each of our students. He focused on establishing a safe learning environment and individualizing lessons for students with various needs.

His easy going temperament, open mind, and professional mindset made him easy to work with as a colleague.

I worked with Jake at the Incredible Children's Art Network. Jake has a dedication to students' learning, great adaptability and flexibility with different learners, and a willingness to embrace feedback to better his teaching. He forms meaningful relationships with his students and uses his expertise to help their musical development.

Parents: He's responsible, respectful, and genuinely cares for your child's musical development. At the Incredible Children's Art Network, he worked extensively with first-year, beginning violin students (ages 7-9).

Private students: Jake is an accomplished performer, great communicator, and can help you grow musically, while making violin/viola fun.

About Phillip
I think we live in a great time to be making music as more and more genre-bending art takes center stage. My lessons reflect this. I have extensive training in classical music and jazz as a performer, composer, and improviser. I want to give lessons that are exciting to you, but also bring in new perspectives from overlapping musical practices. For example, I will create graphic-score compositions with your seven-year-old beginner piano student, I will improvise with a high school aged composition student, and I will assign some classical repertoire to an adult jazz student. I will always teach with the aim of providing technical knowledge in service of your artistic goals, as my own best mentors have done.

My own studies have taken me from Harvard (BA in English, where I also studied with jazz pianist Vijay Iyer) to London (Master's in
Composition from The Guildhall School of Music) and back to Boston (Master's in Jazz Performance from The New England Conservatory). I play in a number of bands that play improvised music. I also have many composition projects and extensive training in classical piano repertoire. I split my time between the scenes in New York and Boston.

I hope I can be of use to you to teach classical piano, improvisation, music theory, songwriting, composition, or jazz vocabulary!

About JD
Greetings!

I often find myself saying that music is the key to the universe. It is a medium in which all humans, regardless of language or culture are able to connect. It is because of this that I love sharing the knowledge that I have gained from nearly two decades of playing guitar.

I am a Los Angeles based session musician, and private instructor. I currently have a few students, and am looking to grow and take on a few more. My curriculum revolves around:

1) Understanding the basics of theory, and showcasing how those basics are applied in songs (specifically bands and artists that you regularly listen to).
2) Proper technique
3) Some fun and fancy tricks!

My goal is to make sure each lesson is clear so that you may fully understand and enjoy the benefits therein!

If you would like more information about myself, here is a link to
my personal website. There can be found a full biography, bands I have worked with, examples of my playing, and current news. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

Personal Website:

May the rest of your day be fun, and productive!

JD is a strategic thinker with veteran guitar playing experience, well versed in helping beginning students like me focus on correct technique and methods out of the gate. This is critical! In 6 short months, I can now play multiple Rock&Roll riffs with technical proficiency, although still getting up to tempo, Sweet Child, TNT, Crazy Train. A piano player who struggled mightily at first at reading guitar score, JD helped me to retrain my brain, learning scales and modes. As a direct result, I was able to take the piano score to Cinderella's "Nobody's Fool" and translate it tp guitar score! This slower tempo piece, I am able to play to tempo OOH RAH!

About Micah
I have been teaching music for a few years now! I enjoy music so much! I received my degree from the University of Arkansas Little Rock. I am also a member of the worship band at my church.

One thing that I enjoy the most, as a teacher, is seeing growth and seeing students get that “aha” moment. The most amazing thing about teaching is being able to see the joy in students as they perform. They get to be themselves. Playing an instrument or singing is raw, vulnerable and takes a lot of hard work.

Being a musician is worth it. You get to be able to express yourself in ways impossible otherwise.

Please let me help you along your journey to become the musician you dream to be.
