She has performed professionally in the musical theatre world and she has studied in several universities for Musical Theater, Jazz, Pop, Blues, and R&B. Since the age of sixteen, she has been selected to sing as a guest soloist for venues such as Spivey Hall, Georgia World Congress Center, and Georgia Tech Hotel Conference Center. Ali has also sung for many movies and recordings, and recently recorded a demo for David Foster, Barbra Streisand, and Andrea Bocelli and recently toured as a pianist for "The Women of Ireland."

Some of Ali's major influences include:

Linda Eder, Aretha Franklin, Jennifer Hudson, Lena Horne, Judy Garland, Whitney Houston, Billie Holliday, and Lara Fabian, Barbra Streisand

*** Lesson Details ***
Ali loves to share her passion of music to the world and especially through her students. She loves to share new ideas and nuances along with the basics and fundamentals of technique. Although practice can be boring for the student, asking a student to pick at least one song to work on can help the student and the teacher have fun and learn at the same time. After a few months, not only will her students have fun, but they will learn how to be a better person and musician.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Home Studio: Baby Grand Piano, Living room, Stands, metronome

*** Travel Equipment ***
Just the music I assign and their appropriate instrument

Great teacher and loads of fun!

I've been taking lessons from Steve for almost 8 years (that in itself should say much about his instruction!). He is able to teach whatever category of music to any person at any level be it acoustic, electric, or theory. I would highly recommend Steve for any age group and for the novice or experienced player wanting to improve. After the many years learning from Steve I wouldn't think of taking lessons from anyone else!

About Emily
Emily has been working professionally for over 15 years and teaching for nearly as long. Professionally, she has worked with labels like Universal and Sony, and with artists like Katy Perry and Billy Joel. Former students have gone on to perform on Broadway, national tours and American Idol.

Every student's individual voice and style is taken in to consideration when forming their training. No two voices are alike, and thus, no two lessons should be alike.

Emily will focus on helping you find the strengths in your voice and then finding and overcoming your weaknesses. Emily is a firm believer, that the voice is a muscle system that must be worked and strengthened, just like any other; and she will provide you with the proper strength training to achieve your artistic goals.

Emily also teaches songwriting and piano, tailored to c
ontemporary artists.

Emily Carlstrom is a total badass. I've taken a handful of voice lessons with her. They were so simple, yet so extremely helpful and motivating. She really knows how to listen and that makes her a great friend, artist and teacher.

About Vitaly
I’m a Theatre Major from UCSD. I've studied music since my early teens, and have played and performed for over a decade. I love music, and I love creating art. If you’re looking for a by the book instructor (here follow the instructions in your music book) I’m probably not a good fit. Music is fun and should be taught that way. But that does not mean you shouldn’t learn the foundation of good technique and how to master those skills. I enjoy teaching as much as I do playing or performing. That is why I do it.

About Trevor
I am a professional keyboardist with over 25 years’ experience, with training from both Berklee College of Music and Musician’s Institute. Living, playing and teaching professionally in Los Angeles for 10+ years, I have had the privilege of traveling all over the world performing with artists of many different genres, playing everything from intimate jazz clubs to arena pop shows in front of tens of thousands.

Currently, I am the touring organ player for the world-renowned punk rock band Social Distortion and am an endorsed Hammond artist. I am also the founder/keyboardist of a well-known instrumental funk trio, and have released two albums and toured across the U.S. as an original artist. Working with symphonies across the country such as the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, Anchorage Symphony, and many
others while backing up special guest singers such as John Elefante of Kansas and Mickey Thomas of Jefferson Starship. I have also made several TV appearances as a guest performer on shows such as Glee and NCIS.

I teach lessons both online and in-person out of my home in Santa Monica. I own a wide array of instruments including a piano, a Hammond B3, a Rhodes Mark II Suitcase, a Hohner D6 Clavinet and a Moog Little Phatty, so we can focus on techniques that apply to any or all of those classic keyboards. I work with students of all ages and skill levels with a variety of musical goals.

I regularly play and teach in styles including rock, pop, blues, R&B, jazz, funk and classical. Having a deep background in classical piano, I competed nationally in the US Open Music Competition throughout my childhood and won multiple medals (including some gold). In addition to topics specific to the piano, I also teach synth programming/digital music creation, patch creation, MIDI programming, recording techniques, vocal coaching, performance coaching, songwriting, and composition.

I have taken lessons here and there throughout my entire life, but never really advanced much further than learning scales. With his enthusiastic and attentive teaching style, Trevor’s guidance helped me to advance really quickly! Before we even started lessons, he asked me to send him music that I liked and wanted to learn how to play, because he said I it would make me want to practice instead of feeling forced. What a great way to get your students to practice! It was so much fun! Trevor had great lesson plans and focused on music theory to truly get me to understand the instrument. Trevor really took the time to invest in me—he even went so far as to go with me to Guitar Center to help me purchase the right piano. His teaching style is straightforward and encouraging. I recommend him all the time to friends looking to learn piano and I recommend him to you, too!!

I used to play piano for 12+ years as a child. Now as an adult, I was nervous to book a lesson as it felt like a rather heavy-lift to start from scratch again. I had tried working with teachers in the past and although they were decent teachers, I never felt motivated to continue my practice/passion. Trevor, on the other hand, made it easy for me to stay committed to my goal of re-learning music; making it fun, enjoyable and something to look forward to on a regular basis. His knowledge of music theory, technique, and communicative teaching style made it effortless for me to dive right back in! Whether you're new to music, trying to re-start, or are looking to become a professional musician, I have no hesitations in recommending Trevor! My love of music has only grown since starting to work with him and I continue to follow this for years to come. Can't thank him enough!

About Tara
I graduated from Temple University in 2000 with a degree in music education with a concentration in cello and music technology.

I have taught cello and music theory privately for 20 years with great success. I have taught all different ages and levels of students. I have a studio in my home and I also travel to you if necessary. I am classically trained but I enjoy teaching contemporary music regularly to my students. I have the ability to arrange music from any genre for any instrument.

I am enthusiastic about the process of learning the cello and music theory. I love catering the journey to the needs of each individual student. I strive to figure out a student's true goals for music and help them obtain those goals.

Tara taught both of my children when they were 8 years old. She helped my daughter get started on the viola and when ready moved her to a dedicated viola teacher. Tara taught my son, who is now 16 for 4.5 years. I am grateful to Tara for instilling the love of the cello and recognizing my son’s raw talent. She also teachers Music to elementary school
children and she has an incredible gift with keeping kids interested and engaged. She helped my figgidity young boy stay focused, often giving him a choice of what he wanted to play next for his level. My son is in 10 th grade and continues to play and wants to study Cello Performance and Music. Both my children play in the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra and in small chamber groups and have reached the Regions and All states level with school. She has an incredible gift with children and her love for playing is infectious. I highly recommend her. She has a wonderful reputation in the community.

I’m a friendly 28 year old ukulele playing Anthropologist. I started studying anthropology in high school, and instantly fell in love. On this decade long journey I have been fortunate enough to work in all four subfeilds. Some of the jobs I’ve had as an anthropologist include: cultural resource management, coroner’s office, teaching at a university, running an archaeology lab, being a research assistant in a biological evolutionary lab, teaching chemistry, teaching Italian/Spanish, preserving art for the Vatican, SHPO/THPO and much much more. I’ve worked in field schools all over the world, starting as a shovel bum, and working my way up to preservation work. My current research is looking at the degradation of prehistoric Mesoamerican mural pigments.

My ukulele journey is just as varied. I am a self taught player who enjoys all the di
fferent styles of playing. I truly believe that anyone can learn to play the ukulele.
