Theater Acting
The BEST Teacher One Could Hope to Find!

Elizabeth's unparalleled enthusiasm for life and acting shines through in her performances and teaching style. She shows a strong proficiency in many different styles and on multiple genres.

She's reliable, experienced, professional, and a great lady all around. One of Elizabeth's main strengths is her ability to convey a given subject matter in a way that is meaningful, constructive and easily understood.

I'm also an acting teacher (private lessons and in the classroom) as well as a professional performer. I've found it to be a great pleasure working with Elizabeth and I would strongly recommend her as a teacher and a performer.

Cory is an awesome teacher!

I've studied with Cory for 4 years now, and I just want everyone to know what a great teacher Cory is. I've not only developed immensely in my musical skill, but I've also noticed when I'm working with other musicians that my studies have really set me apart from my peers. Cory has an awesome recording studio with all the professional stuff you'd come to expect in a major studio, Protools HD, Logic 9, a great Mic Pre & Compressor, along with an awesome tube Mic for recording great vocals. I've known Cory for 14 years now, and he's a lot of fun to work with and learn from. I've also been to many of his gigs, and I can assure you he's an awesome performer. Glenn

Guitar
Cory taught my daughter to play guitar when no one else could!

Cory M is a multi-talented sweetheart of a man.
He’s been a great guitar teacher for my daughter, who has gained knowledge of sight reading and classical guitar while learning to play the folk/indie/classic rock she most enjoys. It’s to Cory’s credit that she’s stuck with these lessons through all the other activities she’s taken up and abandoned.
Cory is also a highly skilled performer and recording artist. I’ve enjoyed listening and dancing to his band playing old favorites and original compositions. He creates CDs of his music and records other artists in an impressive-looking home recording studio – and on top of all this, he’s a great cook and a kind-hearted, generous neighbor. We’re fortunate to have him as a member of our community.

Edwin is very kind and patient. He has great attention for detail and will give gentle instruction on how to make adjustments to improve your guitar playing. Edwin is a natural when it comes to music. He can hear a complicated song and know what chords/rhythm to play. He is also very knowledgeable about music theory and the technical aspects of guitar playing. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Edwin is extremely patient and good natured. His knowledge of music and his ear for chords is amazing. I am a beginner and within a few lessons I am playing full songs from major bands. I couldn't be happier with Edwin and will be working with him for a long time.

Stefani S. Hermosa Beach, CA

About Stefani

Stefani's musical talents were first observed at the age of 5, when she began private study of piano and music theory. She played the alto saxophone for a brief period of 4 years during junior high and early high school, but then moved on to join the school choir at age 16. This choice led to the unexpected discovery of a beautiful, powerful voice. Stefani earned a Bachelor of Arts in Musical Theatre at the University of Tulsa, with special studies in jazz vocals, ear training, and theory. Her college career provided her with intense studies in the vocal styles of Musical Theatre, Classical, and Jazz. She performed in many musicals, plays, and recitals at TU, and during each summer, she worked as a cast member of Light Opera Oklahoma. She was a featured vocalist with the TU Jazz ...

Stefani is a super talented vocal coach very in tune with the student's needs with respect to generating a relaxed and inspired space for breakthroughs. Her style is calm yet clear and assertive; I feel like I'm making tremendous progress in my range and self confidence as a performer just after two lessons.

Mauricio is a very patient guitar instructor. The instruction my daughter received was her first experience playing any instrument. Her enthusiasm for each lesson was a reflection of Mauricio's enthusiasm to teach. Music is his passion and it was clear to me that his enthusiasm for music was evident in his instruction.

My boys are 8 and 7 and look forward to each lesson.

About Ian

With 40 years of teaching experience, I have brought individuals into the piping world helping them achieve their personal goals and individual potential. Having won the US Gold medal in ’06 and the grade 1 World Pipe Band Championships in ’99, I am the expert of bagpipe music in western United States. My enthusiasm for the art of piping comes with a keen ear for quality during chanter practice and rehearsal of the pipes. In addition to teaching both individually as well as successful bagpipe bands, I am also The Simpsons piper, have appeared on Family Guy, American Dad, and several other motion pictures. I have performed at The Hollywood Bowl and the Gibson Amphitheatre with Sting. I am a Professor of Music at UCR. I studied under Andrew Wright, President of the Piobaireachd Society in ...

I have been taking lessons on both Skype and in-person with Ian since I began playing the bagpipes three years ago. I have never had a music teacher prior who shows more passion in his musicianship and genuine interest in his students than Ian. He doesn't miss a (grace) note, and will challenge you to vastly improve your technique. Ian's style contains a humanistic spirituality unlike anything I have heard before. During his summer schools, I have made significant improvements to my style and technical abilities. He is the real deal.

My name is Officer Matt and before I write a review about Mr. Ian W., I find it necessary to establish ethos with you (the reader) to bolster my credibility.

I am a law enforcement trainer in Northern California (firearms, defensive tactics, SWAT, chemical agents, and FTO), a former professional athlete (decathlon - fortunate enough to train under the best coaches in the USA), and am a current track and field coach.

I have had the honor of training with Ian Whitelaw for approximately 1 year, I have attended one of Ian's bagpipe workshops, and I have witnessed Ian compete at professional venue in San Diego (Angus MacDonald...where I witnessed Ian win both the professional grade Piobaireachd and the MSR).

I quickly learned that Ian possesses an innate ability to process information and transfer concepts to individuals of all aptitudes. Ian's patience, enthusiasm, and motivation are key to his students success and are a true testament to his understanding of coaching psychology.

Ian can answer the "why," questions for inquisitive learners (like myself) and he focuses on consistency, proper form, proper techniques during play, fundamentals, tradition, decorum, and he makes playing the instrument FUN with his eccentric personality and never-ending optimism.

Ian is a one-stop shop and I sincerely look forward to lessons with him every month. I would recommend training with Ian to anyone willing to put in the hard work it takes to become great.

Bagpipes · In studio
I have attended Ian's school twice, and both times my piping has gotten substantially better. Personalized instruction, and a focus on pipe setup, as well as work with both light music and piobaireachd, make this a very well-rounded school. As someone who has never played with a band, I enjoyed playing and learning in a small group setting, and then coming together as a group to play tunes in the afternoons. I would recommend Ian's school to any piper looking for a great school experience. - Adrienne Rieck
