Hello, my schedule is now available to new students! I cater to the individual's needs while instilling the basics of violin. Every student learns in a different way, and I make sure to teach in the method that is most effective for that student. Because I perform so often, I know the necessary skills to teach violin practically and efficiently.

About Grace

Grace Rodgers, originally from Detroit, is a Los Angeles based violinist who enjoys a varied musical career spanning from classical to pop. Grace often works with current artists, and has been a part many studio recordings and live productions (Kesha, Lea Michele, BØRNS, Megadeth, Gallant, Sabrina

I highly recommend Grace. When i was younger, I mastered a variety of musical instruments and played well into college. Learning the violin has always been elusive. I’ve had many teachers but now i’ve been progressing farther than before. I credit this to Grace. She has a well thought out lesson plan that challenges me while concentrating on the fundamentals and techniques. Some teachers are more forgiving on technique reasoning that it can be corrected at a later date. It’s best to learn it correctly at the beginning.
She is patient and communicates clearly. I enjoy her proper demonstrations. Her enthusiam is infectuous and her passion shines through.
She also teaches my 80 year old mother. It has always been somthing she’s always wanted to learn. It is not easy to teach anyone the violin, let alone an 80 year old. Her lesson plan and approach is quite different to mine but very effective. My mother is progressing well.
Among her teaching aids, she employs a traditional strings book, i find this comforting as it provides a familiar take and consistency. Before moving on, she checks and ensures proficiency and mastery of the previous lessons. Again, reinforcing the fundamentals and building on top of them.
Understandably, the price per lesson is a factor. I find Grace’s rates to be fair and of great value. If you really want to learn and have the violin be a part of your life, hire Grace because of her approach and skill and not based on pricing.
Without knowing much of what to look for in a teacher, i now know its; enthusiam, patience, undertanding, a well defined lesson plan, mastery of skills before moving forward, consistency, open communication and lastly, not taking excuses for sloppiness due to lack of practice. (She will encourage you to practice and you’ll get better which in-turn motivates you). She will not just let you get by but help you master the violin.

Grace was an extremely patient, attentive tutor who helped me build foundational bowing and sheet music skills. I highly recommend her for violin lessons!

Grace is fantastic. Very patient and clear.

I teach fiddle lessons primarily by ear as I think it's important to retain the aural tradition. My specialty is Irish and Scottish styles, but I also love Quebecois and Cape Breton tunes. I grew up playing Old Time and Bluegrass and have a solid foundation in those styles as well.

We'll learn repertoire and work on developing a stylistically appropriate technique (bowing, groove, lilt, ornaments).

Learning chords and how to provide basic accompaniment can be a fun and empowering approach as well!

About Emily

A product of fiddle camps, late night jam sessions, and extensive Bach technique, Emily is at the forefront of an emerging scene of contemporary violin players. A third generation Southern California native, Emily was drawn to the violin almost immediately upon discovering its existence, and has on

I view our voice as the most powerful tool we have. From speaking to singing, our voice is what connects us with those around us. I take a holistic, dynamic, and singer-specific approach that is well grounded in the enduring bel canto technique to enable singers to access the full palette of expressive capabilities in their individual instrument. Whether you are looking to be on Broadway, sing at the Met, improve the clarity and presence of your speaking voice, or just want to sound better in the shower, I can help you access the beauty and power within your own voice, As you learn the many tools professional vocalists use, you will be free to sing in any style at any venue with confidence, and will have a blast doing it!

I've been teaching Clarinet for 15 years and my students have gone on to College, and other performing goals.I use a variety of books from the typical book you would use as a student in a band program to a more advanced method for other players. Each student is different so I try to evolve to meet their specific needs and learning styles. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! I plan and offer yearly student performances to give students a practical application to their instruction.

I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!
Holly
With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.

Michael is very energetic and passionate about music. My kids have really enjoyed their time with him and we would recommend him to anyone!

Hello! Singing in my studio is a blast! It's fun, exploratory, expressionary, and therapeautic. We work on real technique for the whole body, breathing, relaxation of mind, body, muscles and emotions. We work on music that is for lesson purposes as well as music that you as the student want to sing and work on. Whether it's songs you just love and want to sing and work on, or you have an audition or event to prepare for, or you have other musical goals for yourself, there is a place for all of that in my studio. I also ensure that my singers are able to understand the language of the music itself...the tempo, rhythm, notes, and other markings so that you can pick up any song and be able to figure out new melodies and rhythms on your own.

About Shannon

I have experience tutoring high school students in preparation for their college music theory placement exam, which includes an assessment of their musical theory knowledge, including writing scales/chords/intervals, rhythmic study, writing figured bass, various music terminology, etc. Music theory is such valuable knowledge to have and can expand a musician’s horizons and confidence greatly. I enjoy connecting the dots with my students and helping them understand the theory behind music!

I have to admit I was a bit skeptical of online piano at first, but now I’m a fan! My daughter loves Beth and was taking piano in person, but now logistically online is the only option. It works really well, since it’s in the comfort of our home and I don’t have to take her anywhere. We set up a ring light I bought on Amazon and it’s works great through FaceTime! My daughter enjoys the online classes and looks forward to the annual local recital. We highly recommend Beth online or in person! She is so gifted and such a blessing!

"Chau is Truly a Gifted Teacher as well as singer

We found Chau Kim through our elementary school that my two kids were attending. She was the music teacher there. She was putting on Musical Programs at the school and doing a find gob at it. Both my children were interested in taking vocal lessons, so we asked if she gave private lessons. She did, and from that moment on our lives without a doubt have changed for the best. Both my kids took to her from the start. Chau is able to be bond with all ages of kids. My kids were a little rough to listen to at first, but now they bring tears of Joy when they sing. Chau helped my son get into the Las Vegas Academy of Performing Arts. Where he is one of the top male vocalist at his school. He now performs in Musicals through the Valley, as well gets several paying gigs around town. My daughter is in one of the top Performing Arts Colleges in New York City. So there is your proof that you will also benefit greatly from having Chau as your Vocal Teacher."
