About Richard

Music is my life. Since the age of 16, I have studied the guitar extensively. During my high-school years I was involved in band, marching band, choir, and independent music theory. I started my first band when I was 19 in the U.S. Army, and my life has never been the same since. I played music

Richie is very knowledgeable and presented the information in an easy to understand way. I would highly recommended him as an instructor!
Stephen
Richard was amazing! Always a joy to have him in the house. He was always on time and well prepared for our daughter's lessons. He also kept the lessons entertaining for her. Our daughter learned a lot and definitely improved quite a bit during the time he worked with her. We would highly recommend Richard to any parent with a child interested in learning and playing guitar.
Jenna
Richie is an incredible instructor. Every lesson I have with him is fun, and he pushes me to try new skills in order to develop my abilities. Always prepared with a valuable lesson, but also ready to work through the songs I bring. Overall awesome experience!

She is incredible!
Maggie
She connected with my daughter immediately. Her teaching was playful, fun, and smart. We are looking forward to the next lesson.

Angela is the most inspiring teacher I've ever had. Aside from having played the violin for a year prior, I was a complete adult beginner on piano. My passion is Baroque-era keyboard works, and Angela immediately got me started on Bach Prelude No. 2 from 12 Little Preludes. Within 12 lessons, I was able to play the entire piece with ease. Before starting with Angela, If you would have told me that in under 12 weeks I'd be playing Bach, I'd have called you crazy. Angela's strong suit is that she is confident that you can play any piece you put your mind to, regardless of experience, while inspiring and motivating you to do so.

Aside from technique, each lesson was equivalent to a college course in music theory. She understands that technique is only half of playing an instrument and the importance of knowing the reason each note falls where it does. This may sound overwhelming, but Angela never gives you more than you can handle, while challenging you to improve at a rapid pace. It was an extremely gratifying experience and I am thrilled at the progress that I made in under a year.

Online Music Performance Teacher

I offer online lessons that are engaging and fun. At first I was reluctant to teach online, but now that I've spent some time with the software, I have come up with methods of teaching that are far more effective than the old way. I am a professional musician, I hold a masters degree in music, and I've taught music at the Orange County School of the Arts, Irvine Valley College, the Huntington Beach School of Music, and privately, for the last 30 years.

Music is fun to me. Let me show you how to make it fun for you too.

About Gary

Playing music is fun for me and I want it to be fun for you too. Because each student is an individual, I create custom teaching tools to guide each student toward musical milestones at a comfortable pace. I hold a bachelor's degree in Communications and a master's degree in Music, and I've been a

Stephanie is one of the most talented vocalist and skilled teachers I have ever worked with.

She took me to places I didn't realize I could go and always showed her confidence in me.

Highly recommended!
Amy
Stephanie is absolutely amazing!!!! I originally went to school for music, but have not sung in a very long time (talking years) and had forgotten most of what I had learned. I was so happy to find Stephanie to help me brush up (a lot)! She showed so much patience and so much knowledge. Thank you so much for an amazing lesson!! I can't wait until my next lesson with you!

Stephanie is a very skilled vocal coach. She is also an amazing performer!

"Awesome teacher

I'm a violinist and teacher myself; Cecilia has helped me a lot with my playing and teaching skills, improving my technique and showing me new tricks. She has a natural flair to help you have fun with what you're doing, and classes are even better with her. She keeps you motivated and knows how to keep a clear view of the objective you want to reach, and how to reach them with clear and simple concepts. Cecilia’s helped me a lot with my posture and playing tension free, which has improved immensely the sound of my music. You shouldn’t miss out on this opportunity of having classes with her. Strongly recommended."

"The thing is, everyone wants to hone their skills when it comes to performance, but getting the skills isn't the only thing that you need to do. That is where Jan comes in, she can teach you how to sing, she can tell you when your act is not up to par. More importantly, she can teach you how to relate to your music (most likely you can't), and how to build a relationship with the audience in the short amount of time you're on stage (you probably don't know how to do that either). Jan has worked with people at every level and so she has really honed her craft when it comes to teaching. If you are a student of music performance, she can take you to that next level no matter where you are at. I've taken voice lessons in a private setting by a former vocal-music pro who has worked with former Mrs. Kentucky winners, and with teachers on the University/Collegiate level. Jan is the best I've had so far.

Notes:
1. Come eager to learn, not eager to talk about your life story. A lot of students go to lessons and talk a lot. You don't want to do that, you will miss out on the instructions and performance philosophies that you need from her. Listen more than you talk.

2. Come with clear objectives. If you don't have them, spend time with her developing those objectives. She is an objective oriented person when it comes to teaching, be an objective oriented student.

3. She has really competitive prices for her teaching quality. The hour is worth it.

4. Come with a lot of respect, she will give you a lot of respect if not more. She treated me almost like I was an old friend, and she is a really charming lady. Be nice to her : )

5. She is a really nice person and won't hurt your feelings. She has really good social awareness so you don't have to be afraid of that. If you can drop your ego at the door and take criticism, go ahead and ask her for that extra bit that you need to get you even further. Have some skin in the game.

6. Don't waste your time trying to figure out how good of a teacher she is during your lesson, you can read that stuff online. Come to her studio to get work done.

7. Ask questions that she can give quick answers to (it helps her know that you're hungry to learn). Bring something to write with."

Our girl has a lot of raw talent but needed some good instruction that wasn't too formal.

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly."

"I've been working with Jan for almost a year's draft she has helped me immensely in progressing in my music career. She is truly a professional songwriter, voice coach, and producer. She also teaches classes in Acting for Singers which I have taken. She creates a fun and supportive atmosphere in her private lessons as well as her classes which makes attending them truly enjoyable. She always focuses in on what I need to learn and does it in a very positive way. Anyone who wants to develop as a singer would be really lucky to have the opportunity to study under her and to have her guidance."
