I was a brand new student, with very little experience, trying to teach myself online. When I realized that wasn't working I searched for an instructor and found Mike. He has a very patient demeanor, can play all styles, and most importantly is an easy going and fun instructor. He teaches what you want to play, and I have rather eclectic taste in music...... So if wasn't familiar with a band/song, he has the ability to listen to it and play it right on the spot. Mike has an exceptional ear! You can't go wrong with him, so give him a try! You'll be very happy you did

I signed up to play guitar for "The Sound of Music" with Burbank Community Theater, and after I got the music I realized I was way over my head. So, I went to Mike hoping to get a lot of help. He's amazing. First, he sight-read all of my music, which is crazy. Then he was able to simplify it for me so I could play it and still make it sound good. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have been able to do the show. And now that I've done the show successfully I have a whole new range of skills on the guitar and playing the songs I love is way easier.

I'm so grateful for Mike and everything he's taught me!

Versatile, professional, fun guitar teacher

Mike is a fantastic teacher. He really listens to what the student wants to learn and tailors accordingly. Mike knows music theory and plays lots of different styles so is able to accommodate a wide range of skills and interests. He's direct but gentle with his suggestions. I highly recommend him!

I provide a graded approach to sight-singing using a movable "do" system. Singers will learn how to sing music at sight using solfeggio exercises and Curwen hand signs. Students will improve their active listening skills by learning solfeggio canon exercises. Advanced students will learn solfeggio exercises sung while playing the keyboard.

Brian was awesome from the start...the fact that he actually had be singing out loud in front of someone was a major accomplishment in itself! He carefully took me through some warmup exercises, then on to harmonizing with a keys, and then on to lyrics. I'm looking forward to coming back and building my confidence even more!

I am finding new ways to sing opera more easily. He has opened up my voice incredibly and I previously had some of the world's best singing teachers in London! Bravo Bryan - thanks so much

Lessons are designed to teach music through sight-singing melodies and reading rhythms. Learning to read music is not very difficult if one organizes their time and practices certain exercises. These skills will help one learn songs more quickly and improve one's musical ears.

Absolutely wonderful! I have been taking lessons from Sandra for over a year now and always look forward to it. She is very knowledgeable and sets up a comfortable atmosphere. I have learned so much and couldn't thank her enough.
Rivkah
I've been seeing Sandra for 7 years and I consistently look forward to my lesson every week. I have seen myself improve tremendously in my singing, acting, and sight-reading. Sandra provides an atmosphere of serious learning in which I have been taught how to control by voice, but she is also very personable and always up for a fun chat. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!
Linda
Fantastic teacher. I learned so much more in a short time with Sandra than I learned with all the other voice trainers I have had through the years. Her method is rewarding.

"Andrew has made taking saxophone lessons so much fun for my son. He is very dedicated to working with students at their level of ability and makes it fun by including their own personal interests. For example he has worked with my son on several Star Wars themes and other songs that got my son interested in playing saxophone in the first place. We highly recommend Andrew. For reference my son is 14 and at a beginner level."

"Gregory V is the best, ever!

I didn't realize all the opportunities that were waiting for me when I began lessons with Greg. I started so I could learn guitar, but before long we were practicing vocals, bass, songwriting, music theory, piano, and singers yoga! Greg is well educated in all fields of music, and any questions you have he can more than likely help you with. Music to him isn't just a skill, but a way of life. ~ Train Girl ~ guitar, voice, piano & bass student"

"Since I have been training with Jachee I have developed better access to my vocal powers and my vocal range has expanded. Jachee is extremely professional in her vocal training. She can teach a variety of vocal styles and have you develope ear training in order to distinguish the appropriate notes to sing and remain on the correct notes from the beginning to the end of the song selection. I must say with her expert advise she has guided me in area's I knew was a challenge for me, yet she help me over come the fears I was experiencing without even mentioning it to her. I was soo soo pleased with her that I recommended 3 other persons and if my son gives me th ok I will bring my grand children as well. Her training has helped and improved my vocal cords not harmed them. We practice our breathing, stretching & warm-ups which are so much fun. I would like to achieve singing effortlessly one day as she does when she is on stage. She is amazing, powerful, talented and ve ry professional. I highly recommend Mrs. Jachee, I really call here Boss J because of the way she takes command vocally when she is on stage. By the way there is not a song this power house of a Lady that she can not sing. Give her any song any style and watch with amazement of what beauty and creativity she brings and applies to whatever selections you place before her!!! You can trust you child with her as well. I sooooo love Boss J !!!!!! If I were to have a compliant it would be that we have soo much fun that time flys so quickly and I do not want to LEAVE. Lol 😄🤗😄😁🤣"

"Howard is one of the most innovative teachers I've ever learned from. His method is completely original and his pure love and caring for his students goes far beyond any teacher I've ever known. He has a way to make his students feel so inspired that they never want to give up and learn so much quicker in a much shorter time. He is also a brilliant composer and in my book Howard is by far the best teacher around. I've learned so much for him and have gone on to write music that I never would have written had it not been for Howard! Thank you Howard for the years of dedication and inspiration!"
