I'm Ahmad a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself guitar at the age of 12. I moved to the U.S. in 2001 and studied music for 15 years receiving my B.M. and M.M in music and audio production at San Francisco State University. I then moved to Los Angeles then studied and trained with John Mayer, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, George Lynch and many others. I have performed hundreds of concerts in the U.S. as well in Europe and the Middle East with Artists such as Ozzy Osbourne, Metallica, Guns N Roses, Michael Angelo Batio, Ratt, Sammy Hagar, Dokken and many others. I ranked #1 in the Slash Guitar Center competition.

My guitar lessons with Ahmad were fun, friendly, and productive. As soon as I have time for music lessons again, I'm going right back to Ahmad.

Super friendly!
Francisco S.
Ahmad is awesome. He's very patient and didactic. He easily picked up what was my playing level and what were my objectives. He then started with a plan adjusted to what I wanted to accomplish and in only 5 lessons I feel like I've learned a lot already. He wants you to have the foundations first, the building blocks from which you can improvise or create something new. Thanks a lot, Ahmad!

Specific & clear in her instructions, open to feedback, patient and encouraging, courteous and respectful - not to mention a great singer. Looking forward to future lessons with Deborah.
Jeeyun
I was pretty nervous about taking a singing lesson, as it's something I've never done in my life. I'm so thankful I got connected to Deborah. She's a fantastic teacher and taught me so much about how our body works to produce sounds when singing and what I am doing. From the first lesson I was already given helpful tips and ways to practice things on my own! I'm looking forward to more lessons with Deborah.

Hi! I'm Rachel! Teaching people how to sing with ease is my passion. I teach in Orange County, Los Angeles, and online.

In year 2008 I became the single youngest person to be accepted into the world renowned Speech Level Singing International teacher training and certification program. I took vocal master classes and was trained and certified as a vocal coach directly by Seth Riggs, the international authority on vocal instruction who trained artists like Michael Jackson, Josh Groban, Stevie Wonder and hundreds of other Grammy Award winning singers.

I work with all styles. My goal with my voice students is to teach them how to use their voice in a healthy and natural way while maintaining the ...

Rachel has been a wonderful teacher! I feel like my voice has improved so much in only a few lessons. I wanted to to be able to have more confidence in my voice and she has totally helped me get there! She is also so nice and understanding and caters right to your voice. HIGHLY recommend
Conrad K
Our daughter has been taking voice lessons with Rachel since she was 8.5 years old. Rachel has a very warm, kind, and happy demeanor that instantly made our daughter comfortable during her first lesson. Rachel would come to our house every week (so convenient!) to showcase her vocal skills and pass along the knowledge to our daughter. She was always on time, professional, and, most importantly, helped educate and grow our daughter’s singing skills tremendously. Rachel has a unique blend of vocal artistry, understanding of the science behind the art (very rare trait), and ability to transfer that knowledge to her clients. We were so bummed when Rachel moved further away and could no longer do in-person lessons. Thankfully, we tried online virtual lessons via Zoom and it was perfect! I should note that this was way, way before the pandemic so it shows Rachel’s versatility with technology and her ability to teach clients online. I can’t say enough wonderful things about Rachel. She always has your best interest at heart and teaches to ensure long term sustainable vocal growth. We love Rachel and if you try her out, I know you will too.
Sylvia
Rachel has a great personality that always looks to encourage. She often explained how the vocal exercises and techniques helped me as a singer and sought my understanding as well. Its a pity I could afford only a few lesson with her.

"Where do I begin? Christine is a woman with a voice, not only will you learn proper singing and the fundamentals of music. But she will encourage you to dream and think BIG. I have such respect for Ms. Christine and her love for music, that I tell everyone I meet, to take lessons with Ms. Christine.

If you truly want a teacher who cares about you and your musical dreams, then you NEED to take lessons with Ms. Christine. She has taught me and my Day Care children so much about music education, I will forever be grateful to her talents. Thanks you so much Ms. Christine!

"Coren is not only an amazing vocal coach, shes an amazing human being. I started with Coren as a very timid, cautious singer and now I perform all over Las Vegas and I love what I do! I was afraid that my voice could not improve and that I would never have the power and freedom in my voice that i've always wanted but with some patience and hard work Coren got me there! no matter what type of learner you are, Coren has a technique that will work for you. The first time I sat in on my boyfriend's lesson and I heard how much he had improved I was blown away and I knew I wanted to take lessons. Coren teaches you that everyone can sing and its just a matter of training the muscles you need to do it! For me, thinking about it that way made it a lot less intimidating. She teaches everyone from the kiddos and beginners (she loves kids and they love her!) to the grown ups and pros! No matter how hard i've been on myself coren has never given up on me and I can now say I am not afraid to dream because I know it is possible! I've been with Coren for almost 5 years and for as long as i'm singing she'll be where I stay! If you're serious about singing, Coren will get you wherever you want to go! Thank you for everything Coren!"

"My son takes beginning band with Nick. This group of very young players is learning how to hear a piece of music, break it down, play it together, and make it their own. Along the way, Mr. Nick teaches them theory, technique, and joy in playing music. Nick has the patience of a saint. His expertise is in guitar and banjo, but he knows his way around the whole band, and can teach rhythm and technique on a wide range of instruments. I highly recommend. Note, we’ve done lessons both on line and in person. Both were good."
