Aiden is a wonderful instructor. He taught my 8 year old son beginners guitar. He is a knowledgeable and skilled guitar player. He is patient, kind, and flexible. I am happy with the progress that my son has made with the lessons we've had so far. From knowing nothing at all, my son understands the basics of guitar playing and can play a tune comfortably. Thank you Aiden. We recommend him to those who have kids and are looking for a great instructor.
Ryan
Aiden has been a great guitar teacher and has helped me improve considerably over my first few months with him. I've spent the last 20 years sort of knowing how to play guitar, but I was self taught and never really could figure out how to progress beyond a few chords. Aiden has provided me with the structure I need to get continually better. He has been especially attentive and helpful at correcting and improving my technique. He's always willing to work on what I find interesting or come up with something to guide me. I also really appreciate his laid-back teaching style.
Iralda G.

He is very knowledgeable in regards to music/ guitar.He is so kind to share his expertise with you.He is easy going and he show enthusiasm in what he does which invite you to keep going in you guitar journey.His studio is a peaceful, welcoming and inviting environment to play your guitar. He’s open in whatever music you feel comfortable to play with. He adapted to your needs and he knows how far you can go. He is an expert in what he does! You’re the best Aidan! I highly recommend him! Thank you so much for all your patience, enthusiasm and support!

Performance is a key component to being a musician. Some musicians find performance a breeze while others (myself included) experience differing degrees of "stage fright". Know that you are not alone if you've felt shortness of breath, sweaty palms, or light-headedness (or a combination of the above). I've been a performer for over 15 years and I've learned more about myself under those bright lights than anywhere else. Let me show you the way to a more fulfilling experience performing in front of a crowd!

About Chris

I've been teaching students from complete beginners to college level for a decade. I hold a Bachelor's in Music from the University of Michigan ('16), a Master's in Music from Penn State University ('18), and a Graduate Certificate from the University of Southern California ('20). Through my years

I have known and worked with Chris for four years. As a trumpeter, Chris is truly exemplary. He is beyond capable in all styles of music, and is an extremely creative and innovative performer. He has experience teaching a wide range of ages and abilities; from young and mature beginners to college level students taking auditions.

I have played with Chris in brass quintet, duo, trio, orchestral and wind ensemble settings, and have never stopped being excited and inspired by his playing. As a soloist, Chris has presented many beautiful solo performances that involve and communicate with audience members. He is not afraid to break down the wall between performer and audience, a refreshing take on the classical artform.

Along with being a fantastic performer and educator, Chris is an advocate for the outreach and sharing of music. He has worked with nursing homes, hospitals, and local school districts to share music with more people.

I highly recommend Chris as a teacher, and believe any student who has the opportunity to work with and learn from him is on the best path to reach their goals.
Megan Adcock
Chris is a very talented trumpet player and educator, who I have had the pleasure of working with on a few different occasions. I am the Program Assistant for the USC Thornton Community Engagement Program, and Chris and his brass ensemble were a very valuable member of our program during his time as a graduate music student at USC. He performed outstanding music education brass ensemble assemblies for students ranging from 1st grade to high schoolers in the South and East Los Angeles. During these performances he not only taught and played at the highest level, but also showed great communication skills to students of all ages and adults attending the assemblies.

Candida is a very learned and talented vocal teacher. She has a vast amount of knowledge and is constantly expanding her understanding of vocal technique and pedagogy. This includes not just Western signing technique, but also an understanding of the importance of diverse and inclusive technique and de-colonizing classical singing technique.

Candida has identified the techniques I use when I sing and has suggested ways to improve while also constantly checking in to see how I want my voice to sound. She has been encouraging even during the times I lost motivation, and she has put so much work into our sessions. Candida created a personalized lesson plan with me to help keep my notes and progress organized. She has had to think of many different ways of presenting information to me when I have not understood how to use my voice in new ways, and she has never failed to find a way to explain how to create sound. Candida’s teaching does not simply focus on the voice but focuses on mental and physical wellness that is necessary in order to understand how to use the voice. I would recommend Candida to anyone.
Hai
Candida is a great instructor and has really helped me to develop and learn about my voice. She is very knowledgeable and gives me the right technique/tool/exercise and feedback that I need at each junction of my singing journey. My experience has been fun, interesting, enlightening and even surprising at times. I totally recommend her!

She is an excellent teacher and is able to create a different method based on student’s need.

Jake is a fantastic teacher. He is enthusiastic about the subject matter, and is excited to see you progress and grow as a player. He tailors the lessons to your goals and is pretty much game for whatever you want to focus on.

Since Mandolin is his focus as a musician, he has practical experience and knowledge on the instrument that helps us learn theory in a relatable fashion and has endless tips and tricks to help you grow.

Highly recommended!

"Rachel is such a fun and knowledgeable teacher! Not only is she great at teaching trombone technique, but she is also extremely musical and well versed in the theory and history of many styles and eras of music. She's a very chill and laid-back teacher, but still makes sure that you as a student set goals for yourself and reach them. Definitely sign up for lessons with Rachel!"

"My son, who is 10 and has been playing guitar for two years, has been taking Nick’s band class for the last 9 months and we are very happy with it. Nick is not only a great musician, but as a father himself knows well how to teach kids and make them engage in whatever they are playing.

He has taught my son not only how to play with well with other musicians, but also how to find his “voice” within a band both in the rhythmic and solo sections of the songs.

He was accommodating when we had to reschedule a class due to personal reasons, and is always willing to make the class a little bit longer if necessary to finish what they were practicing.

When the Covid-19 pandemic forced us to have the lessons remotely, he started to use ZOOM and, while things remotely cannot be the same, he did a great job at making sure that they stayed as close to true form as possible."

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly."

Stacey always made sure that Ashley was prepared for upcoming competitions, college auditions and even helped her find scholarship opportunities.Stacey has also worked with numerous other students that Ashley attended school with and they absolutely love her as well. I would highly recommend Stacey to anyone in need of a good music instructor."
