Ms. Phoebe is very diligent and attentive with my son during his piano lesson. She gives enough to challenge him without overwhelming him so he is always excited for his next lesson. Couldn't be happier with the lessons.

About John

*** Specialties *** Hi, there! My name is John M and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students build a solid foundation and understanding of music, as well as developing their skills to become well rounded musicians. I also help my students learn to enjoy practicing and performing. I went to the University of Redlands and earned a degree in Music Composition in 2014. I'm a fun and friendly person and my teaching style is constructed in a way that will appeal to visual, aural, and kinesthetic learners. I am very interested in Kodaly's method of inner hearing and music literacy. I also use warm ups that will help my students develop proper playing techniques, and I teach my students how to play with expression, and emotion. I

Victoria is really nice and definitely patient. She made it comfortable for me from the first meeting. It takes a good teacher to make the fundamental part of learning any instrument exciting which is exactly what Victoria does. Her tutoring makes me hopeful for my musical future. If you're looking to learn how to play the piano you can't go wrong with her.

We are very blessed!

We have been very pleased with our flute teacher. I have had the privilege of Victoria's instruction for 3.5 years. Victoria is fun, patient and energetic. She is reliable and flexible at the same time, which we appreciate. She works on hard passages diligently with me until I am confidant. We consider it a huge plus that she comes to our home for lessons. We are very blessed to have such a wonderful teacher.

I was very fortunate to be able to take my first acting lessons with Mara Madison. Her and her husband provided a very supportive and encouraging environment to someone with no acting experience or background. Mara is very knowledgeable and well prepared for each class. She gave me helpful advice and encouragement, as well as material to take home and study for future classes.

Excellent Acting Coach, Teacher, Trainer

I have had a great experience as a student of Mara Madison. She has a lot of industry knowledge and industry experience helping me cut through what's most important when it comes to acting for film, stage, and commercials. I feel really fortunate to be working with her and her husband Marvin.

Mara is a great teacher and coach, very encouraging, and professional. She's always prepared with lesson plans, acting activities, and handouts all customized to my level and progress in her course.

Mara is not teaching me theories, but real world experience honed from years of practicing her craft and through knowledge passed on from her parents who were entrenched in film and theater and tops in their respective industry.

Mara has helped me increase my confidence in front of audiences, become more entertaining, reduce my inhibition and shyness. You will be happy if get a chance to work with Mara. I am so glad to be learning from her.
