About Patricia
As a child I watched from the doorway as my older sister took her piano lessons. From that experience I taught myself to play the piano. My formal training came in college where I received my BA in Applied Music in piano and voice. I studied classical music and opera from a visiting professor from Peabody Conservatory, Baltimore MD. I graduated with honors and gave my Town Hall performance in the Spring of my Senior year. I had a passionate desire to be involved in music, to hear it and to perform it. I spent several years singing with the San Diego Opera Company, performing lead roles in Musical Theater and soloing in concerts from Monterrey to San Diego, CA. While still a student in college, I taught piano to children from the local community, so I have accumulated decades of teaching experience. Nothing brings me greater pleasure than
to see individuals "blossom" into their creative selves. Whether it is for a student's own enjoyment, audition preparation, recital performance or ongoing piano or voice development, I am committed to engaging you in an experience of learning and fun. It may be the biggest thrill of your lifetime!

*** Lesson Details ***
I love to have fun. For me, learning is a great source of fun. My goal is to make the process of your learning music fun while effective. I do have high standards for participation. I do not ask anything of you that I haven't done myself. I know, from many years of experience in performing and teaching, what it takes to make progress in a learning curve, Are you excited? Are you dedicated? Are you willing to jump in and get busy? I will give you the foundation of theory and technique to support your performance. I will expand your understanding and appreciation for music in its many styles and formats. No every other week or schedule as you go lessons, please. 

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room - Steinway piano, cathedral ceilings ... good acoustics.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Must have piano or quality keyboard. I definitely prefer piano.

*** Specialties ***
I was trained classically in both piano and voice, but spent many years in musical theater and singing in supper clubs, as well. I am capable of teaching most styles of piano and voice except rock and rap.

i recently came out of an audition and I sang my musical pieces better than I've ever done them before! The auditioner sat me down at the end and said he loves my voice. He said, based on how much he liked my pieces and how well I did that he would like to extend an early invitation for callbacks for the program! I really have Patricia to thank for that. She has helped me improve my voice by leaps and bounds in the time that i have been working with her and its amazing to get such immediate and rewarding results. I CAN NOT THANK PATRICIA ENOUGH! SHE COULD NOT HAVE PREPARED ME ANY BETTER AND IM SO GRATEFUL THAT I GET TO WORK WITH HER!!

She is great! It will be my 5th lesson with her tomorrow, but she has already gave me confidence in singing (at least I can get my voice out more than before without shame), being patient with me, very informative, and gives great advises.
I originally took her lesson because I had an audition for Christmas Carol, and I wanted to at least go over the song I was going to use. Instead, she gave me another song to sing for the audition. I have never been able to get in a show where singing is the main dish; however, after her advise with the new song, I was thrilled to see an email from the casting director when I was chosen to be in the show! I can never thank enough her for this. :D

With over twenty years of experience in Graphic Design, Illustration, Prototype Design, Game Art, and Motion Graphics, Mr. M. now spends his time teaching students in many different graphic disciplines. He has been at Norco College since 2006 teaching 3D Modeling, Animation, Beginning and Advanced Photoshop, Illustrator, Digital Sculpting and Character Design. He has also taught 3D Modeling, Anim
ation, Drawing, Motion Graphics, and Video Editing at Coastline Community College, and Cypress College, Santa Ana and is now teaching 3D Modeling at Mt. SAC.

In his free time, Mr. M. freelances for companies helping production schedules that are running behind. In 2009, Gilbert won an Emmy.

This experience really helped me grasp important concepts that I otherwise would have never known. I feel like I learned A LOT in only 3 classes and I can't wait to learn more. Gil was very productive; he based the lessons on what I use Photoshop for and actually allowed us to work on projects that I had to do for work, instead of just teaching what he wanted to teach. He was SUPER patient and never made me feel bad for stopping to take notes. I would definitely recommend him to anyone trying to learn a computer program he is knowledgeable in. This is totally irrelevant, but he has cool hair too! Thanks Gilbert!

About Wahb
I have practiced Many different Martial Arts, like Karate, Kung Fu, Philipinian Kali eskrima since the age of 10. When I turned 25 I fell in love with Kickboxing and Thai boxing, after I have practiced these combat sports disciplines for a couple of years I took a Kickboxing and Muay Thai course for coaches with the Italian Academy and Federation of combat sports that was then named FENASCO under the leadership of well renown coach Carlo Diblasi. After a few months I received my instructor's diploma and I have since then coached many athletes, some of whom went onto becoming national and international champions. I have trained consistently for many years with world legendary kickboxing and Thai Boxing champions like Ramon Dekkers, Andre Mannhart and Rob Kaman, just to name a few. I have had the chance to coach in South Africa, in Dubai an
d now I do privately coach in Los Angeles, California, USA.
I am deeply passionate about coaching and sharing my passion and experience with others.

I was referred to Wahb after seeing the physical and lifestyle changes of a good friend. She lost 15 pounds and was so much happier as she was eating clean and having fun. I wanted to know her secret!

When I met Wahb he was friendly, kind, energetic, knowledgeable and I felt safe having him in my home. Our first session entailed evaluating my "body type", asking key questions about my goals, eating habits, any past injuries along with exercises/activities that I enjoy. Next we began our challenging workout. Usually I walk on the treadmill and never see results or feel soreness. Wahb made sure I was sweating and learning new exercises I had never seen before. Wahb was taking a lot of notes while he was showing me the correct form and explaining every exercise step-by-step. Every thing made sense.

After a challenging workout, Wahb customized a meal plan for me for the next 2 weeks. The meals were delish and 6 pounds melted away without starving.

My goal is to drop 30 pounds. I see Wahb 3 days per week and 1-2 days at the gym. I have lost 20 pounds in 8 weeks eating what I love and mixing our workouts from inside strength training and stretching to outdoor cardio. Mixing things up seems to be the key to Wahb's technique. He's a wealth of information.

Recently my husband has been commenting on how great I look and he has scheduled 6 sessions with Wahb. I recommend Wahb to anyone who wants to see results and work with someone passionate who really cares about your health and wellness. He is not your average gym trainer looking to take your money. I also love that Wahb is available anytime for questions. He's very attentive with his clients.

Expect to work hard and you'll see beautiful results!

· Sports Nutrition · In home
I must say that, for a man who is 50 of age, and always looking like he is in his mid 30"s, Wahb has figured it all out! What he taught me about nutrition is probably the most valuable thing when it comes to keeping healthy eating right, eating light, yet have an incredible amount of energy at all times. Nutrition with Wahb is made simple yet incredibly delicious, the ingredients are all natural and organic in the most part, mostly vegetables, greens and seeds, with a few selected meats and a lot of healthy herbs and spices. A basic nutrition that is rich with all the essential nutrients, and where all the superfluous food is almost totally discarded. If one wants to keep healthy, strong and young looking... Wahb is the guy!
Needless to add that he is so proficient in any type of physical exercise, combat sports, self defense and many various sports. His main focus is how to exercise to be fit maintaining a constant attention to improving health and well being.

· Self Defense · In studio
Wahb is honestly the best trainer I have ever worked with. His self defense methods are great, and I have never gotten a better workout with another trainer. I really love how patient and kind he is, while also being tough and kicking your butt at the same time! He makes you feel so comfortable, and doesn't make you discouraged at all. Rather, he encourages and inspires me to push my body to the limit, while maintaining safety, of course. I would recommend Wahb for anyone who wants to get fit, the healthy and safe way!!! :)

Christopher is very knowledgeable with Photoshop ... I can't begin to say how patient he was with me and helpful he is with this program!!!
I had a very light background with PS but had not needed to actually use it until recently with my work.
I made contact with Christopher and asked for help (help!!!). We worked out a workable schedule very quickly and he had me hands-on in very little time.
I had no idea of all that was part of Photoshop yet Christopher got me up and running with the program with just two sessions.
Wow.
Thank you so much!!!

Adler is patient with me while also trying to push me forwards in the same moment, great to talk to about the lessons or even just normal things, sometimes it starts to seem more like I'm just getting some pointers from a friend instead of learning from a teacher. He knows what he is doing and knows that I can only do so much at times, he guides me through the lesson instead of just teaching it like most teachers I know of. Starting off he was able answer my repetitive questions about something that he might do without thinking, and will describe what he wants of me while teaching, not always serious or just going off on his own, expecting others to know exactly what he is doing. A great teacher and more like a friend than teacher at times.

Adler is a teacher who I'm fortunate enough to also call a friend. He is very passionate about art, is a very positive influence, and fun to be around. He doesnt sugar coat his critiques on your work but isnt harsh about it either. He gives many good pointers and advice, knowing how guide students to better foundations and improvement.

In my paintings I am drawn to the timelessness of the human figure. I find people to be my biggest source of inspiration. This appreciation extends also to the students I am honored to teach. I never quite know where the painting will take us and what skills will be honed to match the inspiration the student has, but on many occasions we both are wonderfully surprised by the results. As a teacher I feel I am most useful when the lessons inspire. The technique will come with time but it takes inspiration to get there!

I had three other painting instructors before I came upon Megan's class and I will say she is the best painting teacher I have had and that does not come easy because I am a professional sculptor that has taught and taken many classes in the art field. Simply put Megan is at the top of her game and her style of teaching is one that most anybody will benefit from her classes.

I am an artist with a huge passion for teaching! I recently received my Single Subject Teaching Credential in Art from CSU Long Beach and hold a Bachelors Degree in Art Education.
I began teaching six years ago at my local ballet studio, where I worked with youth ages 4-8. There, I fell in love with teaching and knew I wanted to peruse my love of Art in the teaching world!
During my schooling, I have studied internationally in Florence, Italy, where I studied Italian Renaissance art under current professional Italian artists. This experience was indescribable and I hope to bring in aspects of my learning there to my future students.
I have had experience teaching visual arts in many different settings, including elementary schools, after-school programs, high schools, and local art studios. I love working with any skill level and ha
ve experience working with Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced students. I cannot wait to find how I can help you grow as an artist, wherever you may currently be.
