About Jessica
I have 20 years of playing experience along with a Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. I was the section leader of my university's orchestra as well as a full-scholarship member of the university quartet. As a professional gigging musician, I have played with Il Divo, Mario Winans, La Jolla Symphony, Doctor's Symphony, Porta Caeli Chamber Players, and the quartet La Dolce.

I am a member of MTAC (Music Teacher's Association of California) and can sign my students up for Certificate of Merit. This is a music study program with an annual evaluation and written assessment. Stand-out students will be invited to play at the Branch Recital.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons differ slightly depending on the student. In general, it starts with scales for intonation or working on vibrato, moves on to an etude or exercise, and culminate
s with work on a piece of music. But not every student works well with this method, so I will add in some musical worksheets and ear training games for those that require lessons with more variety.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can come to your home to teach. I will bring all necessary method books and teaching materials.

About Stephen
Hi there! My name is Steve and I have my Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance for guitar. I have been playing the guitar for over 13 years now and have been teaching for over 4 years. I can play Jazz, Bluegrass, Rock, Pop, Fusion, Funk, Jam and Singer/Songwriter. Any of these genres I'm able to teach and give insight about playing and performing. I've worked with students who are absolute beginners to professional musicians who want to further their knowledge, all ages too. I've been gigging for over 6 years as well and I utilize my experiences to give my students the best music education in a holistic way that they can understand. I am motivated, flexible and eager to teach! Take a listen to some of my music!

I've had three lessons with Steve and I'm really impressed with his knowledge and patience. Steve and I are working on keeping me focused and having me learn how to read music. I do know how to play the guitar already I just lack certain foundational things that I believe will help my playing. I feel like I have a great guide to teach me not only how to play more efficiently but also the why behind it i.e. Music Theory.

Gabriel is an incredible accent teacher. He has his own technique and all I can say is that it REALLY works. I tried other accent coachs before him and always felt some part of the work wasn't fully done. I felt like they were only showing me what I should be doing. That is not the case with Gabriel. He is detail oriented he has a superman ear, he is very good at explaining what is the mistake you are making and how you can correct it, giving precise exercises and techniques to fix it. I have people asking me if I moved to the States when I was 5 when in reality I moved here less than a year ago :) Can't beat that! A part from his professionalism, he is kind, funny, flexible. I totally recommend him!

Antonella is a wonderful music instructor. She is patient, kind, and personable. Her musical talent is unmatched and she taught my daughter not only how to play the piano and violin, but also provided voice lessons as well. We miss her and her instructions very much! Antonella taught my daughter at home, online, and in the music store.

About Judi
Hi everyone! I've been teaching in a variety of areas for many years in many different respects. I teach voice lessons, and audition coaching. I've been doing that for a long time! During my "day-job" years, I was an analyst, and I'm especially skilled with Microsoft Excel. And I LOVE teaching people how to make magic on that program. I have done projects that included creating databases, training departments on the use of said databases, taught entire departments at Jet Propulsion Laboratory how to migrate to Microsoft Outlook from (the archaic) Eudora.

My musical talents run parallel with my affinity for numbers. In my life, it has manifested in music composition, arranging, and musical direction. And, of course, PERFORMANCE! I've performed in and around the Los Angeles area for many years. I own a professional Christmas Caroling co
mpany that I direct and sing in as well. So I'm a performer, and a small business owner! So come see what I can offer!

I hadn't had a voice lesson in more than 15 years, but in one session Judi got me prepped for an audition by helping me to determine range, song selection & presentation. Who says you can't circle back on a dream? Judi gave me the confidence to do just that.

About Kayvon
A highly-achieving pianist and composer, Kayvon has been studying music since the age of five. In addition to the piano, he is also proficient in playing percussion instruments and even more impressive is his vocal abilities. He has led multiple community theatre productions in various roles, both onstage and behind-the-scenes (i.e. music directing, accompanying, conducting the orchestra). Prior to his undergraduate studies, Kayvon was invited to perform with the top ensemble of the Illinois Music Educator’s Association District Jazz Band, the Western Illinois University Band Camp, and many other events both as a solo and/or as part of ensemble quite successfully. In addition to performing, he also has had a prominent conducting career as well. Beginning with choirs and musical theatre shows, Kayvon is now the assistant conductor of the n
ewly-formed Beverly Hills Youth Orchestra.

In his flourishing arranging and composing career, Kayvon has created arrangements for such groups as the Truman State University marching band, East Peoria Community High School band, Illinois State University Big Red Marching Machine, and the Illinois State University Concert Choir and Symphony Orchestra in a combined arrangement of Eric Whitacre’s “Glow” for the sold-out holiday concert. As for composition, one of his most successful ventures was when his orchestral work "Unsung Hero" had its world premiere at Carnegie Hall in New York. In May of 2016, Kayvon graduated from Illinois State University with his Bachelor’s degree in music composition, where he studied privately with Drs. Roy Magnuson, Carl Schimmel, and Joshua Keeling. Following his studies at Illinois State University, Kayvon attended the University of California at Los Angeles to pursue his lifelong dream of film scoring. Since then, he has completed successful internships at Hans Zimmer's studio Remote Control Productions and Heitor Pereira's studio Backyard Industries. Some of his favorite film score composers include Alexandre Desplat, James Newton Howard, Thomas Newton, and Mark Isham among many others.

How to Practice Singing: Practical Tips for Memorizing Lyrics
Need to memorize lyrics--quickly? Take a look at these helpful tips from Ann Arbor, MI voice teacher Elaina R...   For many people, memorizing words is easier if the words are set to music–that is why songs are often used in education (there is even a song that lists all 50 states!). That being said, trying to memorize a song on a deadline is not fun. Not many people know how to practice singing lyrics effectively, and singers often need to learn multiple songs on short notice.
