No two students are ever alike. I've learned that using only one method may not benefit all students. Therefore, I use a variety of methods, some of which include Hanon, the Bastien Series, Suzuki technique for Piano and Violin, and countless others depending on what the student wishes to achieve. I have found that my most successful (and satisfied) students are the ones that express to me their specific musical goals, and then I am able to find a combination of methods to help them practice, rehearse, and refine their style of interest.

Lesson Style
Lessons are uniquely tailored to the students' goals, be it to become functional with an instrument or to dominate at an audition. We will go through warm-ups that will place emphasis on technique, explore various methods so that the student may decide which one gets them the best result, and then work through the repertoire not only for proficiency, but also for interpretation, precise yet passionate phrasing, and of course, to ...

Michelle is so patient and kind. She gives me help with my accent and the way I pronounce the words so that I sound more like a native speaker. I love her. She is so much fun. I'd recommend her to anybody.

About Michael

I was inspired by drums at a very young age. My intro was playing along to the stereo hitting the floor with a unmatched pair of sticks. At age 12 I received a drumset and was able emulate some rock drumming style pretty fast. My learning hit a plateau soon after tho. My discipline for drum books

Great lesson. Michael is very friendly and knowledgeable.
Amy
Michael is a fantastic drum teacher. He is an extremely talented drummer and is skilled in all genres of music, from rock to jazz to latin. As a teacher he is very patient and adjusts to my needs / preferences. He is able to explain in detail both the mental and physical aspects of drumming, which I love, and always has tons of suggestions for improving my skills, from improv to rudiment exercises to jamming along to songs. I’ve learned so much taking classes from Mike!!

"Ahmad is an amazing teacher. If you are on the fence about starting lessons, do it! I thought about it for months before starting, and I am sorry I didn't start sooner. I grew up taking private lessons on another instrument and didn't love it. I wanted music back in my life, but wasn't sure how to start again. I bought a guitar a couple years ago, but never picked it up. After someone gave me a gift certificate to Ahmad's studio, I decided to make weekly lessons a normal part of my life.

I am a beginner and have been taking lessons for about four months now. Ahmad is methodical about choosing the first couple of songs to help you learn a good amount of chords and then allows you to choose which songs you want to play. Some weeks I let him choose and other weeks I choose. It's been an awesome experience learning a song by my favorite artist.

I can't recommend Ahmad enough. If you have any hesitation about starting lessons, go try one. You won't regret it. I look forward to my lesson every week. It's tough to imagine the week without one."

She will work with you on different exercises that will improve a lot your breathing technique and your tone. She demands hard work but your will also feel comfortable with her.

"As a language teacher, I was looking for a clarinet/saxophone instructor with excellent communication skills and the ability to teach musical technique in an empathetic way. I was lucky to find Masaru Koga in Cupertino, California.

I enjoyed weekly lessons for about three years and really reached the point where I was constantly improving my clarinet mastery and getting closer to my performance goals. At one point, I became so enthusiastic, I also began saxophone lessons with Masaru!

I looked froward to meeting him for my weekly lessons and felt he gave more than 100% in patience, encouragement, and musical technique. He has a very warm, giving personality and when we were together, I made great progress and was very motivated to study and practice on my own.

I enthusiastically recommend Masaru Koga to other music students and wish I could be his student again!"
