About Troy
I am a second generation piano, clarinet and saxophone teacher. I was raised around music, and was taught piano and clarinet from a young age by my mother, a private music instructor of over 20 years. I have studied under three master clarinetists while in high school and college, and have performed with the prestigious Tacoma Youth Symphony. I have recently completed my degree in Business Management from Azusa Pacific University, and anticipate finishing my Music Performance degree next spring (having already completed all but a couple requirements).

Troy was very patient with my 11 year son in teaching him the notes and in blowing into the clarinet swiftly. My son expressed that Troy was kindly and patiently with him in learning his first instrument.

About Sean
Welcome, I'm Sean and I'm excited to get started on your personalized lesson package!

I currently live in Los Angeles, where I just received my masters degree in classical guitar performance from USC's Thornton School of Music. Through the program I had the opportunity to study with Scott Tennant of the Grammy winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet, along with maestro Pepe Romero. Recently I was awarded first prize at the 2015 American String Teachers Association 'Aron Green' guitar competition, and have done recordings for Guitar Salon International, KUSC radio at LACMA's Sundays Live Series, and soundtracks for documentaries such as 'Revolution Food.' Now that I have completed my degree program I am eager to start teaching and performing more regularly. I have enjoyed teaching consistently for the past 8 years, which has ranged from Kind
ergarten classrooms to one on one college level instruction.

I started teaching guitar at the local music store when I was in High School. After graduating I went to The Hartt School in Connecticut to study classical guitar where I had the opportunity to teach non-majors in my program. During the summers I worked as a music director for an arts camp in East Hampton, NY. This job included a great deal of teaching kids who were total beginners how to not only play an instrument, but play in group settings with each other. I then moved to Los Angeles for my masters degree in classical guitar at USC. Through USC I worked for their community outreach program, teaching classroom guitar to middle school students and general music for kindergarten through third grade classes. Alongside this I began teaching at a music center in San Marino on the weekends, which I still currently teach at. This June and July I will also be traveling to Maine to serve as guitar faculty at the New England Music Camp.

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

About Connor
I'm a film composer by trade, but I love teaching as well. I love sharing my passion for music with others. I have a BM from Appalachian State University in piano performance and music theory/composition. I also have an MFA in music composition for the screen from Columbia College Chicago. I studied abroad in Ireland for a summer and learned traditional Irish music. I've been playing piano and composing since I was a young child, and picked up folk instruments along the way. Folk music has been a constant source of joy in my life, and I am continually learning more about it. Music is what gets me out of bed in the morning!
