LeAnna S. Los Angeles, CA

I grew up in a English/Spanish household and had more formal instruction when I studied at La Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. I have taught Spanish with i-Immersion language immersion after school program at McKinley Elementary School, SF. I focus on play-based learning, meaning I teach Spanish through games, songs, dances, stories and fun.

About LeAnna

Hello, welcome to my profile and thank you for taking the time to check it out. I am happy to introduce myself to you and share that teaching the performing arts is one of the greatest joys of my life. I am a performing artist and teacher in Los Angeles, teaching a variety of classes from music, dance and theatre. I graduated from San Francisco State University in 2009 where I received a BA in Classical Music, a BA in Dance with a focus in choreography, and a minor in Multi-Cultural Theatre.

LeAnna is a very thoughtful and mindful instructor. The lessons with LeAnna are organized and structured in a way that strategically presents the information to the student. I feel that LeAnna brings herself and her experience into all the lessons she teaches and is just wonderful!
Rosita R. Los Angeles, CA

Yes even I grew up in a Spanish household I took lessons. Speaking it naturally is way different when learning the grammar and the rules. I will guide you through the levels of the correct formal and informal to talk in Spanish.

About Rosita

Born in the United States, she found her calling in music at an early age. Her hunger for knowledge and quest for vocal excellence and the ability to sing in multiple languages ( English, Spanish, Japanese and Italian), led her to Musicians Institute in Hollywood, Ca. Here is where she then attained her Bachelors degree in Vocal Performance after graduating from American Musical Dramatic Academy also in Hollywood, Ca and now pursuing her Bachelors in Music. Her passion for multiple languages and love of music is the desire driving her to share her gifts for teaching young children to open the door to their own musical abilities and hidden artistic desires.

About Matthew

Cheers. My name is Matthew. It's a pleasure to meet you. I play guitar, bass, drums and percussion all on a professional, weekly-gigging level. I would describe my style as motivating, tactful, patient, and both traditional and up-to-date / modern. I teach all styles, but I most enjoy transitioning North American rock musicians into the world of jazz, and especially SALSA / Latin, believe it or not! I have a Bachelors in Psychology (University of Central Florida), have toured Japan with my band, and I also release solo music. I have recorded in famous Tokyo studios and actually ended up living in the Land of the Rising Sun for 4 years! I am Spanish, Japanese, and Portuguese speaking as well (English as my native language), having visited Colombia, Bali (Indonesia), Hong Kong, Japan, and ...

Best instructor I had so far.

Matt definitely knows his stuff. I had 4 classes with him and I'm shocked at the things I've learn with him. Great schedule flexibility and makes you feel comfortable from the time you meet him. Has a great and spacious place to teach compared to other I had. Hes willing to help anytime with questions. I decided to keep him as instructor for now on. Thanks!

I think he was to scared to teach my daughter. I also think he needs a better place to teach, and he needs to make the classes more fun for kids. Our first lesson wasn't a good experience.

About Lars

I began to teach guitar at 16 years of age. I have taught students from 7 to 60 years old in a wide variety of styles. From age 12 to 21 I took private guitar lessons regularly. Now I have a lesson every once in a while. I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players. Aside from teaching lessons as a job, I have played guitar in many concerts and continue to do so. Before moving to San Francisco, I gained a lot of experience and valuable education with guitar. I played in the jazz bands in Junior High and High School. I went to four years of a week long summer jazz camp called jazz camp west where I took classes, played open mics and had fun with many musicians, making some good friends. I hold BA degrees in Music ...

Excellent vocal instructor & coach

Mariana has been a consistently impressive instructor over the past year. She has shown that she can identify improvements for her students in a surprisingly accurate and quick manner. A year later, I still rely on her tips in performance scenarios and when just sitting at home practicing.

When I first started taking lessons with Mariana, I was bad...real bad. Now I am considerably better and that feedback is from very honest (and very forward) friends of mine!! I am thankful for the fact that Mariana does not let my mistakes go unnoticed and works with me to correct them. It should be noted that she has an incredibly polite delivery when identifying mistakes and offering improvement tips. This is something I don't personally need but is so out of the ordinary for instructors that I feel it deserves recognition.

I would highly recommend Mariana to any type of student singing in any genre. She is very big on the fundamentals but understands a person's musical style and goals so she tailors her lessons to fit the student. Whether it be critique of a recording or an in person lesson - Mariana’s teaching style, polite delivery and accuracy of improvement areas lead to a shorter time frame for a student to reach their goals.

I have been able to teach myself every instrument I've put my hands on (5 so far). From the perspective of someone who has very high expectations of myself and my music...I would not have been able to get where I am vocally without her.

Awesome teacher for kids!

My daughter has always loved to sing and at 8 yrs old was ready for some training. Mariana has been very patient, gentle, and encouraging to her-never pushing her past her comfort. My daughter is not normally shy, but she cares so much about singing that she was a bit nervous in her first lessons. She just had her third lesson and was able to really open up and sing. Mariana praised her and was able to encourage her to let go and not worry about a mistake! I think the best compliment you can give a teacher is to listen to the child talk about her lesson all afternoon and share with everyone she can find what she learned and her "real voice" Mariana also works very hard to explain in kid terms what she is teaching and how to warm up. I have sung all my life, but never had any training. Im learning right along with my daughter and it has been an amazing experience. Im really glad to have this opportunity to work with Mariana.

Singing Lessons

I'm a beginner, and mainly enjoy singing at my own leisure. I came to take lessons without a background of music, solely with the intent to learn more about my potential in singing that Mariana has helped me expound on. She has taught me so much that I feel more confident in my ability to perform. I now know proper techniques and weaknesses to improve on that only an instructor is able to point out in person. She's a very kind, patient teacher, and broke lessons down to detail. I would love to work with her again in the future and recommend Mariana to any and all levels of people who are passionate about singing.

I lived in Mexico City for 12 years, and as such, it is my native tongue. I have also traveled around South America and Spain, and have acquired different dialects. I have taught various levels - from kids age 2 all the way through senior citizens! Depending on the student, I can adapt my system to their needs (including academic).

About Peter

I have taught and helped hundreds of students - of all ages - to make learning music an exciting process, and helping them achieve their goals. I teach piano, songwriting, composition, and music theory, and music production, and am fluent in Spanish. My teaching style involves technique, theory, ear training, sight-reading, music history, and performance, with the goal of creating solid, well-rounded musicians. For more seasoned music students, I help them to hone in on a musical path that best suits them, whether it be soloist, composer, accompanist, songwriter, etc. Over the last five years I have studied with over 12 music professors, both in the classroom and individually for 6 years at Saddleback Community College in Orange County. I have also studied a number of styles while

I had the privilege to work with Peter in Artist Development. He was instrumental in helping be unlock my creative blocks. His passion for music and musicians is evident in his breath. He really cares about the art of expression and will always go the extra mile to help artists grow their authentic self and passion. I highly recommend Peter to anyone. His excellent songwriting and composition skills, along with his Music Industry expertise and connections are an added bonus that could expand to endless future collaborations and possibilities.

I have worked with and learned from Peter D. for a little over 2 years and am SO happy with how much I have learned. Peter is classically trained but is also open to many music styles and experimentation. Not only is he an exceptional musician himself, he really knows how to "diagnose" each student and create the lesson around their needs. You will not be bored in Peter's class!
