About Kateland
I have been teaching since 2011 and have my Master's of Music in vocal performance from San Francisco Conservatory of Music, with a Bachelor in Music Vocal performance from University of California Irvine. I specialize in teaching classical art song and opera, but am also passionate about teaching the musical theater repertoire and popular genres. My goal is to inspire students to explore the sound and meaning of the music beyond the written page. I believe deeper understandings give way to stronger and more professional performances. I work closely with students to help them develop strong basics and a concrete foundation in voice or piano, through fun and interactive music and games. Having performed with the Orange County Pacific Symphony, I am able to provide students with professional performance perspectives from performing in
small venues to 3,000 seat performance halls.

*** Lesson Details ***
I encourage students to learn and work on music they are passionate about. I expect students to practice regularly to the best of their ability. I am patient and tailor each lesson to the student’s skill and comprehension level. I work with students to help them establish good practicing habits.
To me it is most important that the student is having fun while learning; therefore, as a part of regular instruction time we play games to learn and review material, skills, and performance techniques.
After 3-6 months of lessons students will be familiar with musical terminology, be able to identify musical symbols and read music, at least, at an elementary level. They will also be introduced to the basics of performance.

*** Studio Equipment ***
No studio at this time. I am happy to teach in home

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide enthusiasm and dedication

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in teaching classical art song and opera, but also enjoy teaching the musical theater repertoire and popular genres.

About Jonathan
Piano, singing, and songwriting began for me when I discovered really awesome piano music such as with bands like Queen, Yes, and ELP. After high school, I studied classical music composition at Wheaton College's Conservatory of Music receiving my Bachelors in Music Composition with a focus in piano. My professional experience includes singing on film/TV productions such as High School Musical, Hairspray, and Struck By Lightning. I compose and orchestrate for theater (Glendale Center Theater, Vanguard University Theater Department), film/TV, orchestra (L.A. Jewish Symphony, TCOTW, BIOLA University) and album projects (Anna Nalick, Oodle's World Productions).

Singing credits include Jurassic World, Adele on the Academy Awards, Josh Groban's Stages album, High School Musical 1, Hairspray The Movie, High School Musical 3, Chris Kolfer'
s new movie Struck by Lightning, Atlanta Aquarium Dolphin Show recording, Boston Public, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire ad (New Wave Ent.), and The Drew Carey Show. Piano credits include American Idol finalist Stevie Scott, various other bands, Mastro's restaurants, and local churches.

I love to share musical knowledge and really enjoy teaching!

*** Lesson Details ***
Music education environments can be tense and intimidating, but that's what causes averse attitudes towards learning. Learning is hard, but it's also extremely rewarding and should build confidence along the way. With me, lessons are all about progress and not about criticism. We will maintain an organized and detailed set of personalized goals all along the way, and you will see your progress in all different facets of music, playing, and singing. With any instrument, voice and piano especially, staying relaxed is key. How can you learn to fly over the keys or soar into your upper vocal register when you are tense or worried about making a mistake?

I guarantee:

1) That lessons will be fun. Learning takes hard work, but it can also be fun. That's part of my job!

2) That I will never make you sing in a way that can harm your voice.

3) That you will be empowered with tools of knowledge about your instrument (voice/piano) and about music theory that will help you to be a versatile musician.

I expect:

1) That you come willing to try new things in a low pressure environment. This will lead to progress!

2) That you come prepared to sing/play.

3) That you or your child will make mistakes. That's what lessons are for! Commit to not making the same mistakes the next time, and ENJOY the praise and feedback you get along the way.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Real piano Bladwin Acrosonic, recording studio with Manley reference mic, keyobard, and guitar inputs.

*** Specialties ***
Classical piano technique for strength and versatility. How to read music and grasp music theory concepts for self-confidence and self-sufficiency as a musician in all genres including pop and jazz.

Singing of all styles. I teach the fundamentals, breathing, resonance, intonation, tone, and text-focused performance.

For writing music, I have extensive knowledge and experience with different forms/styles of classical composition for piano and all orchestral instruments as well as expertise in pop song structures and lyric writing.

Jonathan is super patient and kind. But also gives good feedback that has helped me improve. Along with vocal warm ups and singing songs we work on ear training and sight reading. His approach is gentle and non judgmental. Great teacher for both kids and kids at heart. I am truly pleased and would highly recommend him.

Tanisha is a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music's Vocal and Music Business programs. Since arriving to Los Angeles, Tanisha has built a solid career providing artist development services to professional entertainers, recording artists and actors. Her services include vocal coaching, piano lessons, music theory, songwriting, performance development, media and stage training. Tanisha is also an accomplished songwriter. She is a regular co-writer with platinum selling recording artist Shanice Wilson of "Flex and Shanice" on OWN. Tanisha also works closely with casting and producers of the major network talent competitions The Voice, America's Got Talent and American Idol. Additionally, many of our clients can been seen and heard

In addition to teaching music, Tanisha has enjoyed a successful career in the entertainment
industry working with top tier performers such as Chaka Khan, The Black Eyed Peas, Montell Jordan and Babyface to name a few. Accompanying her is a staff of accomplished performers and teachers who have credits throughout the entertainment industry. At the WHAA, her performing arts academy, she offers a conservatory-level curriculum focusing on the fundamental skills of technique, composition, artistry and performance in music, dance, drama and visual arts.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very fun loving person and believe in creating a positive environment where students feel comfortable to be themselves. At the same time I am a stickler for details and do not allow laziness. I believe a balance of fun with excellence has allowed my students to excel far beyond their own expectations. Good results takes HARD WORK! Please do not come to lessons with the expectation to sing like Beyoncé or play piano at Carnegie Hall after 4 lessons. Mastering your voice and instrument takes equal parts of time, hard work, dedication and patience.

My teaching style is individually based.
For vocal clients, I asses their strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to build up their weak areas while helping them find "their own voice". I focus on breathing, intonation and control which I believe are the foundation of great singing ability. I use a classical Italian based program along with pop, R&B, jazz, and rock. I have vocal coached in many languages including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

For piano clients I focus on strength, dexterity and precision in fingering. I also help students learn to feel the music and bring their personality and touch to each piece they are performing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Tanisha currently teaches at her performing arts academy the White H Arts Academy. There are private instruction rooms and a lobby waiting area for parents and guests. Parents may also sit in the lesson room if desired. Private lesson rooms include a piano, speakers, and a music stand.

The White H Arts Academy also has two state of the art mirrored dance rooms with sound systems and wireless microphones for practicing stage performances or rehearsing for a big show.

*** Specialties ***
Vocals: beg to adv
Piano: beg to inter

Vocal genres are classical (opera), pop, R&B, gospel, rock, jazz, blues and musical theater. I studied voice at Berklee College of Music. Have also studied Seth Riggs SLS (Speech Level Singing) method independently, however, I am not certified. I also teach in languages other than English including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

Piano instruction levels I teach are basic to intermediary focusing on classical, and general accompaniment abilities.

When I first signed up with take lessons I was very skeptical. I had never done anything like this before and had no idea what to expect. I read the reviews which were great, but still felt skeptic because I know everyone has different experiences. I must say that all the reviews were very true! Tanisha made me feel very welcome in her home. She listened to my concerns and her feedback washed them away. I left her home studio feeling excited, confident and just high on life and what's in store for my next session.

I have been wanting to play an instrument for such a long time, but never had the motivation to try it, until recently. Wanting to play Piano was a spur of the moment decision for me. I googled piano teachers in my area and Corinne was one of the first people to pop up. After reading all her rave reviews, I decided to give it a go. I was so nervous for my first lesson, but she made me feel comfortable and at ease the minute I walked through the door. She is educated and passionate about music. Also, she is extremely patient. I have been going to her for Piano Lessons now once a week for almost 6 months and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend Corinne. She's amazing!

About John
Los Angeles, CA has thousands of acting and speaking coaches - and here's one more!

There are dozens of variables that go into preparing for a role, an audition, a performance, or a public presentation of any kind - voice, demeanor, point of view, "what do I do with my hands", "what do they want", etc.

Likewise, everyone has been told a different way to approach each aspect mentioned above - Chubbuk, Stanislavski, Fitzmaurice, Linklater, "The Method", Meisner, Suzuki, Viewpoints, Alexander - it can be absolutely overwhelming.

John will meet you where you are, from his specialized background of interdisciplinary work. A recent graduate of the UCLA School of Theatre, Film, and Television, John received a master's degree in acting, with a special emphasis in learning different approaches and integrating them into one coherent, perso
nal one, that works for an individual.

Having studied multiple training practices in voice and speech, musical theatre*, physical and psychological acting, and acting for mediums as varied as devised theatre, film, television, audiobook, and motion-capture, John has accumulated many tools with which he can help you clear the weeds of your pieces of material - and your own mind, too.

The work you've already done is good work! John is excited and passionate about helping you to celebrate both the skills you already possess and the new ones you've dedicated yourself to learning.

John is particularly passionate about working with students new to the field of acting, or students looking to apply the tools learned in acting study to their life outside the stage - business presentations, political candidacy and office, award presentations, etc.

About Jennifer
I have been teaching private lessons since 2006 and have loved helping my students expand their vocal range, increase their repertoire, gain solid technique, and just enjoy singing. Each lesson will begin with a vocal warm-up focusing on breath, posture, and technique. We will then work on your music together incorporating what we learned in our warm ups. We will focus on everything from phrasing, to marking breaths, to understanding lyrics, utilizing dynamics, and staying true to the style of the music. Our lessons will be engaging, informative, and fun.

I want you to find your unique voice and help it to grow. I want to know what type of music you like and am happy to help provide you with new material ideas. My Broadway repertoire knowledge is expansive and I love finding songs that fit your personality and type. My background i
s primarily in musical theatre/Broadway which embraces all styles of music including classical, jazz, pop, rock, and country. I love teaching. I love learning new music and helping my students learn new music. I love watching my students make progress.

Below you will find a bit more about my education and performance background:

I have always had a passion for musical theatre and vocal performance. I began performing at the age of 5 and started studying voice at the age of 12. I attended the University of Southern California, Thornton School of Music, where I received a B.M. in Vocal Performance.

Upon completing my Bachelor’s degree, I received an M.M. in Musical Theatre from the Boston Conservatory. ​While in Boston, I had the unique opportunity to perform as a concert soloist with the Boston Pops conducted by Keith Lockhart on the same night that I sang the national anthem at Fenway Park.

Wanting to combine my joy for traveling with my love for performance, I studied acting at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England, musical theatre at NYU’s CAP 21, and opera at OperaWorks in California. I have performed in New York at Birdland and the Laurie Beechman Theatre, in California at Rockwell Table & Stage, and in New Hampshire with the Great Waters Music Festival and New Hampshire Dance Institute.

I traveled the world in the International Tour of CATS as Jennyanydots and the understudy for Grizabella. I have also performed in many regional theatres throughout the country. Some of my favorite credits include: The Marvelous Wonderettes, Light in the Piazza, Guys and Dolls, The Golden Apple, and The Full Monty.

Currently, I am on the faculty at AMDA College and Conservatory of the Performing Arts in Hollywood, CA where I teach Individual Voice lessons to college students.

About Benjamin
Hello aspiring guitarists! My name is Ben. I am a musician hailing from Central Ohio seeking to share my knowledge of the guitar and music theory with anyone and everyone eager to learn. I have taught guitar lessons for the last five years and I have taken guitar lessons myself for the past 9 years. In 2012 I attended Capital University in Columbus, Ohio on a scholarship for classical guitar. Following my time at Capital I lived in Columbus writing music and playing guitar for several local groups while also teaching private guitar lessons. I currently gig as a guitarist and bass player in several Los Angeles based bands and I recently finished my first solo EP, which I recorded independently from my own home studio. My teaching style is very adaptive and fluid, focusing on the individual needs and goals of my students. From learning your
favorite songs on the guitar to mastering your major and minor scales, together we will both strive to become the best guitarist we can be.

About Troy
I have always loved music from an early age. I began playing viola at five years old playing with the Washington DC Youth Orchestra. I continued his career being classically trained in not just viola, but piano as well. Along the way I picked up guitar, drums, and more! I then studied under violist Katherine Murdock at the University of Maryland. I've performed at the White House, the Kennedy Center, and the Spanish Embassy. I now live in Los Angeles recording and producing my own music as well as artists nationally and internationally. My favorite thing about music is the creation of new sounds from a blank slate. My favorite thing about teaching music is making music fun. When taking lessons with me you can expect to have fun but also deeply learn the craft while discovering your own passions along the way. I look forward to getting to
know you as a student and learning about your specific goals, interests, and learning style. Book a lesson now!
