*** Lesson Details ***
Making music and singing should be fun, and everyone deserves to have a great experience with their instrument for the rest of their lives. I take pride in guiding my students in exploring their potential in a safe, creative and non-judgmental environment. My students will learn to develop courage and confidence, grow their ears and appreciation for music in all its forms, and expand their range, power and musical skills.
Your lessons will be tailored according to your goals, dreams and personal motivation. I will offer you resources and show you how to use research as way to become independent when preparing your lessons, auditions and performances. If you are an aspiring guitarist/songwriter, I will teach you the basics of playing the guitar and offer you fun techniques to build those callouses, play rhythmically with confidence and coordinate your playing with your singing.
Whether you are completely inexperienced, naturally gifted, shy, ambitious about a professional career or just looking for an outlet that feels good, I am here to help you. You will not only learn technical skills and many tricks for beating stage fright and crafting a performance, but you will also learn to share your unique personality on stage, and learn to perform with feeling, heart and honesty.
Everyone has something beautiful and wonderful to offer the world and I look forward to meeting you and discovering your special voice and sound!
*** Studio Equipment ***
My lessons are conducted in my home in an open living room area. I have a keyboard and a guitar. You must bring your own guitar (an acoustic or acoustic electric - sorry, I do not teach lessons with electric guitars) and, if you have "accompaniment" karaoke CDs (or mp3 on your phone or laptop) and/or sheet music that you have been working with, I encourage you to bring those.
*** Travel Equipment ***
Home lessons are negotiable and I would bring a guitar and/or a percussive instrument. Your home must have a room where lessons can be conducted free from distraction (incl. pets and siblings) and have enough space for exercises and instruments. It must also be in-view of the family and have an open. Group lessons are negotiable. :-)
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in singing, songwriting, voice, speech and acting. I also teach beginning lessons in guitar and piano. Other specializations: International Phonetic Alphabet, Accent Reduction, Musical Theatre, Classical Theatre (Shakespeare, Greeks), Movement Theatre (Mime, Period Movement, Stage Combat), Singing Styles (Jazz, Pop, Rock, Classical, Gospel, Musical Theatre, Sacred Chant).

We love everything whatever he teaches to my son!!
I am very pleased with my teacher. He has helped me very much. I am very blessed to have found him.
· Piano ·
Art is a wonderful teacher!! He is enthusiastic, reliable, knowledgeable and very personable. I feel extremely fortunate to have found Art to teach my 4 year old daughter.
My daughter has been eager to start learning the piano. I needed to find someone that is able to teach at her young level and to be able to connect with her shy personality. Amazingly, Art is able to make her laugh, smile, learn and have fun all at the same time!
My daughter has fun learning and we often find her practicing on her own at the piano. Actually, she considers it playtime at the piano! She is learning simple songs after just a few lessons. She is very proud of her ability to play and is always eager to see Art so that she can learn more.
I HIGHLY recommend Art as a piano teacher. It is obvious that he loves music, this is evident in his weekly teachings. As a parent, I couldn't be happier!!! Art is setting a firm foundation for our daughter's love for music.

A Note From Francesca:
My official bio is listed below, but perhaps more important than the things I have done are the things that I am doing. I am now approaching my 15th year of teaching. I love to teach! I carry a minimum of 30 students, but have carried more then 80 at one time, and have never once complained. My waiting list cycles based on my performance schedule and recording schedule. If you don't see a time that works for you, feel free to reach out and see if we can find something that works, as an artist, my schedule can be quite full but also quite flexible. I love my students, I get to do what I love all day and I am sure it shows. I have a blast discovering new ways to experience music with "my kids." I call all of my students kids even though most of my studio consists of young adults. I try to have a young air in my classes at all times as it just makes the process so much more fun for everyone.
I've seen it all in through years: kids, adults, beginners and advanced students. I am personally very interested in being the most versatile musician possible and I love being able to share my knowledge with my students. We can study anything and everything from Classical Guitar to Electric Guitar Shredding; from Opera to Kelly Clarkson; from Tchaikovsky to Little Richard! I love getting students to dabble in little bits of all genres, often getting even the most skeptical student singing and playing comfortably in a matter of just a few weeks. My students will be able to read music for their favorite tunes and understand how to improvise from the start. Once you come in, you'll be hooked. You will have fun because I am having fun!
I encourage all of my students to share their favorite music with me. It affords me the opportunity to learn more about what they desire to learn and what types of music they enjoy. We will learn with your music often. After all, isn't that why you are coming to see me? I will introduce you to new sounds and styles, but will foster your love for music, and do my best to never force my music on students. I feel I learn as much from my students when I truly listen to them and their music as they do from me.
On site lessons are available for artists recording demos, rehearsing bands and setting up their own studios.
On a side note, I love seeing students at my shows! I am a full time musician and can be seen playing with my band, in my own solo project and in various choral settings. Check out my website and see what I do outside of the classroom. My students get a kick out of the idea that they can buy a CD with their teachers face on it, and to be honest, so do I. Many of my students have their own music out on iTunes and YouTube. Many more can be seen performing around town in solo projects and professional ensembles.

Pianos, Guitars, Basses, Amps, Computer, Monitors, Music, Recording Software, Drum Kit, Studio and Performance Mics, everything we need! Its like Disneyland for musicians!

Francesca on Artist Development:
I feel obligated to share my joys and experiences-
Not many people have been blessed to sing alongside as many renowned musicians as I have - I've been lucky to be welcomed in both the commercial and classical worlds and they have both afforded me venues to use my voice and express the most vital corners of my soul. To find your purpose through art is one of the greatest gifts you can receive. And to be able to do that in front of thousands of music lovers live or over the airwaves is a surreal experience.
It's funny, my classical cronies are impressed to hear my stories of packed rock gigs at the House Blues and national touring festivals like Warped Tour and my rock buddies ask to hear my stories of Disney Hall performances with the LA Phil. To be honest, Iâ'm impressed to be there too. Sometimes, I look around and think, how did I get here? How did I get lucky enough to live the dream, to find a home in music?
I've been luckier than most. I've had GREAT mentors who have always pushed me forward and shared their wisdom freely with me. Part of the classical musician's central goal is to educate. That's a value I carry into my rock projects and production studio. Work smarter, not harder. Take the needed skills, create art, teach others how to do the same thing, move forward together to live happier, more productive lives filled with purpose.
I have come to be known as one of the top Musical Mentors & Artist Development Experts on the west coast. A behind the scenes- diva of dream building with the skills to push artists to the next level- the ace up the sleeve of many of today working talents. In my award winning studio, I spend time coaching the young voices and faces of today hottest TV shows seen on ABC, Nickelodeon, and the Disney Channel, but I still have a soft spot for up and comers in the indie music world. Having written and performed my own music for decades, I not only lived the collegiate experience of the elite classical performer singing for presidents and world leaders, but also the dingy road of the rock musician who's showed one night to a packed stadium full of fans and showed up another, thousands of miles from home to play to a coffee shop of 5 people. Music has brought me to nearly every continent and introduced me to some of the most talented and diverse people you can imagine. I feel compelled to share these experiences with those around me so that they my develop the vision, the salt and the skills to persevere.
I am, above all, an artist & creator- living the dream, helping people- like you find their voice and write their songs. Turning raw emotion into art.
Each one of us has a story, our truth. Being an artist is about finding ourselves, our song and expressing it publicly so that we may heal, so that we may grow.
It doesn't take a ton of experience to write a hit song. It doesn't take a fancy education or a family line of talent (though it can help). We can all find our voice, our place in the spotlight, what it takes is the courage to take the next step forward.
You've already had the genius to be in the right place at the right time. Here. If you've made it this far, chances are you are smart enough, hungry enough and ready to take the plunge.
Inside my studio you will find the help you seek. I can impart you with proven techniques to strengthen your sound, develop your tone through strong technique, develop strategies to share your art and develop a plan to turn pipe dreams into reality. Some desire to sing on the worlds brightest stages, others strive to lead others through teaching themselves, and some wish for nothing more than to experience music in a confident manner among friends. All can be lead on this personal journey of the artistic soul and all can make their offering to the musical gods. There is a place at the table for anyone seeking an answer.

Since coming to live in Los Angeles, CA in 2013, I have been involved in both the jazz and pop music scenes as a performer and arranger, leading my own groups and music directing for others. I have also been involved in the film scene, composing the music for 16 short films, 5 independent video games, and a 3-episode
In my lessons, I am happy to cover everything from beginning techniques on the instrument, being able to improvise in any context or genre, and working in a recording studio setting.
I strongly believe in the values of listening, improvising (both in music and in life), and perceiving every instance and detail as a chance to learn. These are the values on which I base my teaching, as well as my own music.
I am a lover of all kinds of music, movies, video games, hiking, traveling, and Mexican food.

💃 I have been dancing my whole life ever since I was a little girl. At the age of 14, I enrolled in my high school's dance department. WIlson Classical High School has won 1st place in many Las Vegas Dance Competitions every year and have also performed at Disneyland yearly. I enrolled in dance all 4 years of high school and was also apart of my high school's spirit drill team, The Bruinettes. I have grown as a dancer, performer and entertainer and my p
I teach beginning dance and intermediate dance as well as hip-hop, jazz, contemporary and lyrical. I also teach Intro. to Ballet. My goal after every class when I teach dance is for every one of my students to leave feeling confident in them self as a dancer, happy, open minded, more knowledgeable in the art of dance as well as the specific techniques that are important to dance that is taught in Intro to Ballet.
The thing i love about dance is that it is not only fun but it is also healthy and it helps build confidence and relieves stress! Allow me to help you achieve your goal whether it's to loose weight, get toned, or to just do all in 1!
🌹 As for floral arrangements and catering, I have a passion for that too. I absolutely love decorating and arranging flowers. Whether is for weddings, birthdays, parties or even its just for the home that you live in! I am a perfectionist however I am very open-minded about my clients taste and I will do my absolute best to make sure their vision come to life! Check out my Instagram pages:
If you don't have an Instagram you can also google my usernames and search Instagram!
🏡 When it comes to interior design as you might have guessed, I also love interior design. Growing up I never had my own room, so, as a young girl I loved to draw. I drew my own dream rooms on paper and now I even help my friends rearrange their rooms as well as decorate and even tidy up a bit. I can make a small bathroom look like an absolute luxury bathroom with the simplest things like adding a candle or even just painting the walls a different color. Small details like that can really make a difference! As I mentioned before, I am a perfectionist and if anything, everything will look it's best. From a modern clean slate look, to a 5 star hotel, to a bachelor pad in LA, I can design almost any room to the best of my abilities based off of what my client wants!
💄 And for makeup, yes, haha, I love makeup too. What can I say? Master of almost anything? Anyways I have been wearing makeup since the 8th grade. Yes I wasn't Kim K. or Kylie when i first started but i definitely learned ever since. I am a quick learner. I am self-taught and I know how to make your makeup not look cakey and hopefully last all day! Whether I am doing your makeup or teaching you how to do your makeup or teaching you how to do makeup on someone else, you will not be disappointed. I learn to work WITH my clients face not AGAINST, meaning if I do your makeup, you won't look like a completely different person. For example, if you have no eyebrows, no problem girl, I'll make sure you have eyebrows that perfectly frame your face. Also, I never judge my clients on how they look with or without makeup because everyone is beautiful and WE ARE ALL HUMAN! It's just makeup and sometimes makeup is a personal thing as is all depends on what my client wants. From the "no makeup" makeup look to full glam like Kim K. to drag, I can do it all to the best of my abilities! And yes i know how to match the perfect foundation to your skin tone as well! The base of the makeup is very important for a perfect makeup look! If it doesn't match its wack!
💌 Any other questions just ask! I would be happy to help and if you have read everything thus far, thank you so much for taking the time to read about me! I will reply either immediately or the same day!
I have hands on experience teaching and directing actors of various ages.
During my time at Denison University I gained experience with acting techniques as well as directing actors for the stage and screen, which I have continued to use for recent independent projects.
Most recently I worked at the New York Film Academy’s summer camp where I utilized my knowledge of film and theatre to assist the students with their projects. While there I got to teach a screenwriting course and help with their monologue class.
Furthermore, I have taken classes from multiple instructors from different studios, including James Franco’s Acting School, in Los Angeles. I’m well-informed with scene study, monologue techniques, acting for film, reading technique, improvisation, memorization, Meisner practices, Stanislavski technique, and chara
Acting is a passion of mine and I would love to help you break out of their shell and develop a passion for the art form in the same way that my teachers and mentors did for me.
I look forward to meeting you!
When it comes to preparing your acting resume, knowing what to include can be a challenge. However, there are several items that should always be included. Instead of only listing the parts you've played, include some of the following items to dazzle directors: Up-to-date Contact Information - One of the most important parts of any resume is your contact information. How will recruiters and talent agents contact you if your information is not correct? Update your contact information when … Read More
