Some students are content to play songs they know and love, and others want to create songs of their own and contribute as songwriters in their own right.
I greatly enjoy helping students find their own voice as writer, and open up an understanding of arrangement and construction in music. Some might make simple singer/songwriter songs, and others might want more elaborate compositions. I love both and teach them both

Bill is a great teacher. He is able to teach whatever songs or style of music you are looking for. He is extremely helpful and makes the lessons really fun and enjoyable. He is very accommodating and ensures you are understanding what he taught. Overall, I really enjoyed my lessons and I highly recommend him.
Joel R.
Bill is a delight to work with, he is patient and thoughtful. I am very pleased and fortuned to have found him as my teacher.
Sam Y.
What a great teacher! He has several decades of experience in playing and teaching and it shows. He plays effortlessly and is very patient. He would be the ideal teacher for someone who is either new or already experienced with the guitar. Also, I feel like he can play most any song (and coming from a 70s/80s rock/metal fan, it's great). If you're on the fence about learning or continuing with lessons, give him a shot. You won't be disappointed!

Our kids have loved their lessons with Dr Alex. He’s been working with them for two years now, and they have learned and grown so much. He has been extremely flexible and respectful over the past year with Covid guidelines - even hosting virtual lessons and recitals. He adjusts his teaching to each of our children’s different learning styles, makes it fun, and keeps them engaged. We highly recommend Dr. Alex and love working with him.
Mason D.
Alex is very patient and positive. Our nine year old grandson looks forward to the lessons and practices a lot during the week.
Jennifer
Dr. Kostritsa has been a wonderful teacher for my daughters. They have made excellent progress with him over the last two years. His flexibility in allowing my older daughter to select some of her own music really helped with motivation. It's also inspiring that he composes and performs his own music as well.

Stephanie is such an amazing vocal coach. Her instructions are very clear and concise which makes it very easy for me to understand and comprehend my mistakes. In just the span of a month and a week I am able to see the progress i've made through Stephanie's teaching. Stephanie also demonstrates her enthusiasm of wanting to help others improve which makes the lessons all the more better. She is definitely a go-to if you want to improve musically!
Armin
Stephanie has been everything I ever wanted and more in vocal coach. She makes it so comfortable for me to find my true singing voice and continuously helps me improve every time I meet with her. Her ears are so trained to heard what I'm doing right or wrong and communicates really well on explaining what I should do or not do to sing correctly which for me is key. Besides the in person lessons she's also helpful with sending back feedback when I send over my voice notes from my phone.
Rosie
Stephanie is the best vocal coach in Los Angeles. She is sweet, caring, and an incredible instructor. She is passionate about teaching and her students. I feel blessed to have found Stephanie online after trying out different vocal instructors that didn’t seem to care beyond the lessons and whether there was any improvement. Stephanie goes above and beyond and she’s extremely talented and has a beautiful voice herself! She is a professional that takes her time with beginners but knows her stuff and will take the time to teach you about your voice. She also creates an incredibly comfortable space where you can be vulnerable and emotional and make mistakes all while nurturing you to do your best! I highly recommend Stephanie to any professional or novice looking to start singing for fun!

"I have had the pleasure of playing, and practicing, with Mr. Cris over the last few years. We actually took guitar class together in high school, and even then, I could tell that he was exceptionally talented. Given his family background in music, and his desire to create wonderful compositions, it was no surprise that he chose to pursue music in his life. Recently I have needed assistance with my songwriting and I have had no hesitation in bringing my work to Cris in order to gain insight into what I may need o do in order to successfully finish my composition(s). He is well educated in music, has learned from many accomplished professionals, and is extremely hard working in his craft. And finally, Cris is very patient, insightful, and motivated, when working, and/or teaching, individuals. I would highly recommend him to anyone of all ages."
