As a teacher, I believe that learning to play music is one of life’s most rewarding experiences. My goal is to help you take your musical aspirations as far as you can! As one of Southern California’s most renowned teachers, I have been teaching for over 20 years and am known as a specialist in using state-of-the-art methods in developing vocabulary, command, and control of the complete drum set. You will learn the masterful stick, finger and foot techniques used by the professionals.
What sets me apart from other teachers is my performance experience as an instructor/clinician. I have performed educational clinics at several universities, colleges, schools and music stores throughout the country. My knowledge and experience, unlimited 24/7 student support, follow-up and passion for music education is unparalleled.

My first lesson with Joe was Awesome and eye opening!
Joe has plenty of patience when it comes to rookies like me! I felt very comfortable at his location!
I'm working on the techniques and homework he gave me and now it's making sense as I'm practicing at home what we went over on my first lesson. I feel like I made a great choice from the get go and I'm excited and looking forward my next 14 lessons!

Joe also values the importance of drum concepts and techniques, & he's always there to help! :)

I've been teaching music for 15 yrs on guitar, piano, bass, cello and bass. My students have ranged from from 5yrs to 75yrs of age. I have seen many student go on to join orchestras, bands, broadway shows or simply continued their education to a university or college. Being able to read music profeciently has given me the opportunity to teach off many method books but like to use Alfred Method, Mel Bay and Frederick Noad Method books. I teach many styles ranging from classical, jazz & blues, rock, contemporary and pop. I do stress and recommend all my students to learn how to read music and usually by our second or third lesson they will playing simple songs. I am here to help you make music!

Hi! My name is Leila. I played the lead role (Kim) in the New York Broadway production of the musical, Miss Saigon. I have been teaching Voice for the past 20 years. I teach technique, articulation and performance. I am open to teach all styles of music. I teach all ages although I believe 10 years old is a good age to start (depending on the maturity of the young student). I have taught all ages from 7 all the way up to 65.

I feel very lucky to have worked with Leila. She is kind, compassionate, non-judgemental, creative and very experienced. She will support you and she will challenge you...she is on the journey with you all the way. I highly recommend her!
Maryl
A few years ago I was fortunate enough to take a vocal workshop in Paris, France where Leila was one of the instructors. Her guidance during that class is what prompted me to take private lessons with her.

Studying with Leila has been an amazing experience – she has a rare combination of coaching for vocal technique/mechanics as well as for performance and interpretation. Since studying with her the past year, there have been noticeable results – I have gone from being a newbie singer to a confident performer who now sings in the Paris open mic scene.

With Leila moving from Paris to Los Angeles I truly miss the in-person weekly lessons…the good news is that via SKYPE you can still take lessons with her to continue your growth as a vocalist. Leila is truly a gifted teacher and coach – I have learned so much from studying with her. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Amy
I've first taken lessons from Leila back in 2008 or 2009. She recently moved back to CA from Paris and now I am excited to be continuing lessons with her. Her techniques have made my voice stronger. She gives excellent demonstrations, hand motions, and analogies that explain each technique in a compressible manner. Leila is versatile in teaching a wide range of genres, from classical to R&B/ pop to Broadway. She is very personable, kind and very knowledgeable. It is an honor to have a Miss Saigon Broadway alum as my teacher!

Even though I am a novice, she taught me from reading notes to how to appreciate music by explaining very well. But I had to do what I had to do, HW and practice!!!

I will strongly recommend her to anyone.

Honestly, Gina was a strict teacher and great teacher at the same time. I had to practice a lot, but it was really rewarding experience. She is very patient and guided me to understand how profound classical piano is. My playing technique improved significantly.

I would strongly recommend Gina to anyone who wants to improve!

Each and every one of my lessons is tailored to the needs of the student, whether you're an absolute beginner who's never touched a guitar or you're an intermediate/advanced player who's looking to improve your shred game, I'll come up with a lesson plan for you. I cover a wide range of topics and genres, and I'm more than happy to discuss topics such as technique, music theory, song writing, improvisation, or any topic you're curious about.

"After years of taking saxophone lessons from the so called "great teachers" in Los Angeles I was really frustrated with my progress or lack of progress. Luckily I found Rick. In only a couple of months with Rick I was improvising at a level that I couldn’t even believe was possible. He has a system that is amazing and incredibly simple to learn and to apply to all the songs I love to play.
If you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced player, Rick can elevate your playing faster than you can imagine. I can't recommend him highly enough. Rick's and his system are simply incredible."
