When it comes to piano, there is no genre that I don't play or teach. I love jazz, classical, hip hop, R&B, pop, rock, electronic, etc. It's all music to me and I see no need in drawing lines.

About Mesrop

I am a music lover. I love anything and everything that is music. It has been one of the most consistent things in my life since I was a child, and there's nothing that makes me happier than making that a reality for someone else. I've spent a lot of time studying with different musicians, such

I have been wanting to learn piano for some time, and was recommended to Mesrop by a friend. He has been very patient with my pace of learning, which isn't always the fastest, and introduced concepts in a really logical and digestible way. Great guy and teacher, highly recommend!

I've always enjoyed playing guitar and bass, but the added element of piano was something that seemed so daunting I convinced myself to let it go. Mesrop was able to break it down so simply for me from the start, and I'm extremely thankful for his patience and focus throughout lessons. Along the way, I picked up more on theory and am now more comfortably able to transcribe as well. I think he's a tremendous musician but an equally excellent teacher.

I was struggling with my Music Appreciation class and I really needed extra practice. Mesrop was really patient with me, and helped me throughout the semester- even at inconvenient times of the day. Passed with flying colors! Thank you!

Bgcheck Background Checked


Having played in groups like Wind Ensembles, Orchestras, Quintets, Jazz Ensembles, Brass Bands, Combos, etc., I can and will teach any and all styles from beginner to advanced levels. I will push you as hard as you want to be pushed from your lessons, and can help you become competitive in auditions for jobs, gigs, honor bands, and school. I have a methodical approach to the instrument which includes not only the physical aspect of the trumpet, but the mental aspect, which is largely ignored.

My son thoroughly loved his lessons with Aaron. Aaron spoke to him a respectful and sensitive way while challenging him to push farther than he ever did in his school band class. We are only stopping lessons because we are going on vacation and will not be back until the new school year has begun. With a new school and an new schedule, I am hoping to be able to continue lessons with Aaron in the future.

As an instructor Aaron is outstanding. He's professional and has impressive attributes being a UCLA grad and participating member of the armed forces; but more so, he's encouraging to his students and in our son - he positively encouraged a passion for the trumpet and a high regard for music in general.

I am classically trained but I had 3 lessons with Frank for a musical audition. He taught me how to sing in a brand new style. Thanks to him, I am now cast as Nina in a production of In the Heights.

If your are looking to be the Best. Be trained by the BEST TEACHER! Frank Thomas has been my best vocal trainer for years. I couldn’t be the singer I am with out frank. I wouldn’t be in operas, solos and many musicals journeys with out his ways of training me. DON’T look anywhere else. This is the best and also he is fun!!! I remember when I first started with him. In 3 days. Yes 3 days with me working on my voice with him I heard a big dramatic operatic voice come out of me!!!! I’m telling you look no further. Trust me.

Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.

A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

I am an experienced orchestral clarinetist and bass clarinetist. I can help you or your student achieve their goals through individual planning. I enjoy working on fundamentals and utilizing performance psychology practices to improve the learning outcomes for the students. I believe that teaching clarinet is like playing a sport: there is a lot that goes into the work that is challenging the student while enjoying the process.
