Anne M. Montclair, CA

About Anne

I am a professional, caring, and knowledgeable teacher. I believe that every student is an individual and I approach each lesson with that individual in mind. I have experience with all ages and am educated in many different teaching methods and styles. I am a confident believer that any person can succeed in music and enjoy music at some level. Education I began taking piano lessons when I was six years old and I was hooked. I took lessons for 9 years and then resumed again when I was in college. In fourth grade I picked up the flute and the saxophone because I wanted to play in the school Jazz Band. I then took Alto Saxophone and Flute lessons for 8 years all the way through high school. It wasn't until high school that I caught the singing bug when I joined the women’s choir

A Perfect Match

Committed, kind, intuitive, highly skilled singer and instructor. Anne is perfect for my daughter, Natalie. Anne has time and again gone way beyond what is required in a voice teacher, and has shown ingenuity and patience where needed (most of the time). I would recommend Anne as voice coach for any young aspiring singer. She will inspire, patiently work through any difficulties, and never ever use negative criticism, but always positive suggestions. An amazing and talented young woman.

Robert is a outstanding trumpet instructor. He is not only very knowledgeable, but he knows how to communicate to his students in a way that makes sense. He is very professional but keeps the lessons fun as well.

Robert is great to work with. We were able to identify my vocal range, introduce me to some basic music theory and help identify ways to expand my air capacity all within just a few lessons. I'm looking forward to each one and furthering my knowledge.

I have been trying to come up with the perfect words to describe this teacher but I can't find anything I feel is good enough, other than the words wonderful and amazing.The way she teaches, and just her presence alone just blows me away, and I couldn't be more thankful to have met her and have the opportunity of her teaching me. If anyone is meant to be a teacher,it would be this person. She is so gifted.. Believe me when I say, if you have any doubt about choosing the right teacher, look no further because you just found her.

Amy has truly changed my life both as a performer and person.She helped me polish my vocal technique and singing methods, in addition to acting and audition coaching. She was very instrumental in helping me pick amazing audition songs and how to really give a memorable performance, even if it's just 16 bars at an open call! Before studying with Amy, I was a bit unfocused and rusty,now I am poised and confident in my singing abilities. Thank you Amy, you are an incredible and inspiring teacher!

Amy is the perfect teacher! She encourages and infuses her students with a feeling of success that makes you want to do more and continue to improve.
I had been having difficulty with vocal confidence and Amy helped me with that immediately. From the first session, I learned things about my approach to singing that I could correct and put to use at the very next opportunity. I have now have a voice because of Amy!
She is a fantastic Teacher and I highly recommend her to students of all ages!

Michelle is a fantastic teacher! My daughter was a beginner student, just starting at elementary school, and we wanted to supplement those lessons. Wow, what a difference it has made! Elaine shows improvement after every lesson and she just LOVES Michelle. She is patient and kind, and very motivational. She has a knack for reaching Elaine and bringing out the best in her. Thank you, Michelle!

Flute · In studio
As a former student, I couldn't feel luckier to have studied flute with Michelle for ~6 years (ages 10-16). During that time, she not only helped improve my technique and skill enormously, but also acted as a hugely supportive, warm and funny presence in my life. Michelle genuinely cared about my progress and very patiently guided me through years of instruction, offering constant encouragement. She always made sure I was thoroughly prepared for every recital, music competition, or youth orchestra that I participated in, and helped me pick music that I always enjoyed playing and practicing. She was also very thoughtful and hands-on in terms of helping me choose a new flute, a music camp, etc., which my parents and I greatly appreciated.

During my time with Michelle, I felt that my lessons were excellently paced—she knew when to push and challenge me, but also made sure I was comfortable with the material, and didn't rush me if something proved more difficult. Over the years, we progressed through theory, breathing techniques, scales, playing with an accompanist or another flutist, etc. in a way that felt very natural and appropriate. Additionally, the relationship we built became very important to me as a student. There were several times that, as an overextended middle- or high-schooler, I seriously thought about quitting flute—but the idea of stopping lessons with Michelle was sad enough to make me reconsider each time. I truly appreciated how much she cared about me both as a musician and as a person, and was thankful in the end to have kept playing with her as long as I did.

Michelle is easy-going and knowledgeable, kind and talented, understanding and wonderful. I will always be so grateful for the kind of instruction and encouragement I received from her—she helped me grow as a musician in every way. Thank you so much!!

My daughter (who is now in college) was a student of Michelle’s from 4th – 11th grade. Michelle is a talented musician, a wonderful person, and a very effective teacher. My daughter really enjoyed her lessons with Michelle - it was always a bright spot in her busy week. She benefited from Michelle’s guidance outside of lessons also – recitals, entering and placing in solo competitions, and auditioning and playing for the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra. We felt so lucky to have found Michelle – she was an excellent teacher and a wonderful role model - teacher, musician, mother. I recommend her very, very highly.
Heidi P. Claremont, CA

About Heidi

My name is Heidi P. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in music, with an emphasis in vocal performance. I have a great passion for teaching opera and classical music, but I teach vocal techniques that can be applied to all genres of music. I have been apart of many operas and performances including the roles of Maddalena in the opera Rigoletto, GrimGerde in Ride of the Valkyries, Carmen in the Opera Carmen, and Chorus in Suor Angelica, and La Traviata. I have also been in the Boise Music Week Productions of Hello Dolly, Beauty and the Beast, and Brigadoon. I let my students choose what type of music they would like to sing, I don't want to force my own style on my students because I want them to enjoy what they sing! Music is a beautiful art form that is challenging but should also be ...

Heidi is sweet, positive, patient, and encouraging! I started without any experience in singing before taking lessons with Heidi and I can hear the improvement in the way that I sing. She isn't pushy and is willing to work with your own pace. Whenever we're singing or doing breathing exercises, she'll give you analogies to help you understand what you're doing more. I always look forward to her lessons and I'll definitely keep on taking lessons from Heidi! :)

Heidi is the best! From the second I walked into her quaint home, I was enamored by the positive energy she put off and the excitement she had towards helping me achieve my musical goals.

Heidi began our lessons by getting to know me personally, my current musical status, my goals with her and my goals with music in general. It is very endearing to see someone with so much passion, not just for music, but for teaching! Heidi is the fun teacher that everyone likes. She is very humble and kind, and I just can't imagine someone not getting along with her.

Her advice is ideal constructive criticism, never did I feel pressured to sing a certain way or embarrassed if I wasn't hitting my notes properly. She seems to know exactly what to tweak, what mindset to embrace, and what metaphors to use to illustrate better singing. One of these is with singing high notes, she told me to imagine my voice travelling down instead of up, and it made a world of difference!

Heidi knows that proper singing is achieved with breath control and openness in the throat and vocal area, and with this method anyone can become a great singer. On top of all this, she has the BEST price in the entire Inland Empire! If you are just starting or getting back into singing, or if you feel insecure about your voice but don't know where to start, call Heidi. You won't need to look for another voice teacher ever again, I promise. :)
Thaddeus G. San Dimas, CA

About Thaddeus

I've dedicated a lifetime to learning, studying and performing on Latin Percussion and Drum set. I began study at age 13 and was playing professionally by the age of 18. The truth is, I didn't wake up one day and choose drums and Latin Percussion - It chose me! And thankfully, music has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I've been fortunate to have experience in performing all kinds of music as well as formal study with master drummers from Cuba, veteran Jazz Drummers, Soul drummers, a school education in music and drums, and also have the intuitive music knowledge that only comes from a lifetime of dedication to the art form. Because of my playing experience - I can teach you all kinds of music styles! Salsa, Latin & Brazilian, Jazz, Church Worship, Rock, Soul,

Conga Drums · In studio
I've grown up much of my life witnessing various great conga players that I have been privileged to experience. At a workshop held by Thaddeus with several other students, I was able to gain a much better understanding of conga rhythms and patterns. In addition to this, Thaddeus brings extensive knowledge on the history of the conga to further my understanding and learning. With a group performance at the end of the workshop season, our group was able to demonstrate what we learned for many others.

Percussion · In home
Thaddeus helped me learn various characteristics of percussion and I am grateful for his instruction. One thing I appreciated about learning percussion from Thaddeus was his ability to not only be able to explain the music but to be able to artfully explain musical concepts, relationships between percussionist and other musicians in a group, and how to use the various percussive instruments. Thaddeus' decades of experience become evident in his teaching. Thanks to the instruction I received, I was able to perform much more confidently in various performance and live group environments.
