Hannah is fantastic!
Martyn
Hannah was a fantastic teacher- I was only able to be in LA for a short period of time but managed to have a very productive and useful singing lesson with her. She was very personable and friendly, while able to pinpoint areas to focus on and gave me a lot of great techniques to work with to improve. I'd definitely return to lessons with her when I can.
Madeleine
Hannah has been amazing in helping me learn how to properly use my voice as well as warming up for shows. She is incredibly understanding and makes you feel comfortable. Not only that, but she is a warm, sweet, and hilarious person to be around. I would recommend her to anyone!

I love taking the time to get to know each student on an individual level, and finding what gets them excited about making music. With over ten years of experience teaching students ages five through adulthood, I know each person learns differently and has different goals. I will work with you to come up with achievable goals, while also pushing you to discover how to play in a way unique to you!

Kate is an incredible teacher - I cannot recommend her highly enough. I have played violin off and on for almost 30 years, and Kate has worked carefully and thoughtfully to help me with basics that I didn't realize I could improve on that have already changed my playing for the better. Kate has a positive and encouraging approach that inspires confidence and joy in practicing. She is able to clearly break down each element of fingering, shifting, and bowing when I am having trouble. She is a gem and I am delighted to revisit my love for the violin under her guidance.
natalie
I have been beyond pleased with Kate. Her energy is calm and encouraging and allows the student to creatively discover how learning works for them. As an adult, having never played ANY instrument before, Kate has been the perfect nurturing guidance on this journey. I've also seen her perform outside of lessons and she is clearly classically trained but pushing the boundaries as an what an artist "should be" which I love as someone learning a skill, to see all perspectives. Kate is on time and professional and I have nothing but positive to say about working with her!!!
Amy
My granddaughter (age 13) has been studying violin with Kate for the past two years and I honestly felt as though we'd struck gold after the first lesson. Kate is smart, talented, patient, and an all-around lovely person who has elevated my granddaughter's music studies.

Every student will desire something different out of their lessons. I constantly encourage students to realize what their ultimate goal is in regards to the guitar. Every student has a different goal and therefore everyone will have a different route in learning the guitar. For example, a student seeking admission into a top level conservatory will need a vastly different route than an adult whom is taking lessons as enjoyable past-time hobby.

My job as a teacher is to prescribe learning materials that will increase a student’s awareness to reach his or her own goals. Natural technical ability of dexterity, flexibility and strength can be developed over time and a general understanding of musicianship can be learned. However, I always try to explain the importance of these elements in relation to reaching a student’s final goal.

Students most often take music lessons for enjoyment and as a past time and therefore a student's enjoyment from playing music is perhaps the most ...

Rich is a top notch teacher and had a huge hand in shaping me into the musician I am today. I came to Rich with the objective to prepare for auditions to attend music school for college and he was able to take that dream and run with it. Under his tutelage, I was able to gain admittance into every program I applied to and was able to attend my dream school, the University of Miami (FL). From this experience, I can absolutely say that his teaching abilities are fantastic and on par or exceeding what you would see at a top notch music school. He is very attentive to the aspirations of his students and what is most impressive is the creative approaches he uses to make challenging topics more feasible. I would highly recommend any guitarist looking to expand their repertoire and skill set to take lessons with Rich!

I have extensive experience with Ableton teach how maximize it as a creative tool. Instead of showing "tricks" on Ableton I show how to use Ableton as an instrument to become a complete musician. As part of Ableton instruction I teach composition, groove feel, timbre, all the same things that make a good instrumentalist translate to learning Ableton.

About Kellen

Great teacher! Kellen has made me really excited about the guitar again.
Jon
Kellen is a great instructor. He explains musical ideas in an way that I qet quickly. I'll show him a song and he'll pick it up and teach it to me right away. I would definitely recommend him!
Susan
I had been playing guitar for a while, mostly learning songs and chord changes on my own. I wanted to take lessons to work on composing my own songs, and this is where Kellen really helped me. He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.
