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.

Great teacher

I am an adult beginner and have been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for 2 months. Jonathon is an excellent teacher. He gives very good direction and explains things very clearly. He is also very good at identifying weak areas that require extra work. The lessons are relaxed, stress free, and fun. I highly recommend Jonathan.

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.

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.

Her college career provided her with intense studies in the vocal styles of Musical Theatre, Classical, and 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.

Introduction to Reading Violin Tabs
Tablature is a form of musical notation that was invented to make reading music easier for fretted and string instruments like guitar, bass, and violin. The premise is operationally-based, meaning that rather than showing rhythm, duration, and pitch, violin tabs will show the player where and when to place their fingers on the instrument.
