Mercedes is skilled, knowledgeable and patient. Exactly what I need as an adult learner of saxophone. On our first lesson she was interested in my goals and she has since developed a plan for me and is helping me move towards what I hope to achieve. I have nothing but praise for her.

Great Instructor!

I only just started taking lessons a month and a half ago and have learned so much more than I expected. Mercedes is a great teacher and has not only taught me the fundamentals of playing, but also explains "how" and "why" I must do things.

Kara M.

Los Angeles, CA

I teach beginning to early intermediate level flute, focusing on technical exercises and appropriate repertoire.

About Kara

From childhood I considered myself to be a singer and entertainer. Feeling called to a career in music, I began my undergraduate studies in piano and voice performance at the Wheaton College Conservatory near Chicago, Illinois. I then spent two years in France studying voice at the Conservatoire de Nancy and was awarded the Médaille d’Or in 2004. I then returned to the United States to pursue my singing career. In 2005, I had the honor of being selected to join the Maryland Opera Studio at the University of Maryland. As a member of this prestigious opera program, I performed the roles of Sophie in Massenet's "Werther", Anne Sexton in Conrad Susa's "Transformations" and Rose in the World Premiere of John Musto’s "Later the Same Evening." My love of new music has lead me to collaborate ...

Wonderful!

Kara has been my piano/voice teacher for the past few years.
She is an absolutely wonderful teacher. She is always encouraging, and her advice has always helped me immensely to perform better. Thanks to her, I won a place in the All State Chorus, and also parts in the school musical productions. She is always warm and friendly, has a fantastic sense of humor, so it was always a joy working with her. You cannot ask for a better teacher.

I had the distinct pleasure of studying voice with Ms. Kara Morgan over the past five years. Prior to starting with her, I had not sung for a long period of time and it had been even longer since I studied voice. With her knowledge of the human voice and her ability to communicate vocal concepts, my vocal ability has exceeded my expectations. With Kara’s leadership and training, I have gained skill and confidence and I am now singing regularly as a choir member and a soloist. Diane Archer

Thomas F.

Los Angeles, CA

About Thomas

From a young age, I have been deeply involved in the musical community. I began studying piano when I was three, and throughout my education, I’ve learned from such accomplished instructors as Belle Mehus and Christopher Taylor. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance from The University of Mary in North Dakota, I continue to study, teach, perform, and compose. I’ve also studied guitar and bass for nearly twenty years.  I love playing and teaching these instruments because of the strong correlations between the way they are tuned and played and the way western music theory works—as well as the pure enjoyment that comes from them!  Additionally, I have twenty years of education in oboe and other woodwind instruments. I was principle oboist for two orchestras and reached ...

I am a very shy person and doing this was a challenge for me. Thomas put me at ease, and we had a very good lesson! I learned a lot, and I can't wait to practice more on my own.

Thank you, Thomas!!

Chang is a very dedicated and serious instructor. She is extremely passionate about teaching and learning; it shows in her students' growth. We are part of a group of teachers who try to encourage our students through public performance and actively participate in recitals every couple months. I highly recommend Chang if you are looking to try flute, whether it's for a school band, personal enjoyment, or lifelong goal.
