Great for beginners!
Eban P.
Will was everything I expected. I was looking for someone to teach naturally as opposed to rote (boring) learning. I'm sure Will can do rote but he did what I asked.

He really knows his music and can teach in a way that gets my son directly into actually playing music, which is exactly what I was after.

He’s really flexible and can take anything and turn it into something good.

The pace was spot-on, matching perfectly the maximum my son could understand at the time.

I think my son learnt the absolute maximum he could in that short space of time and he learned a LOT.

Great Fun!

Betty is an excellent instructor. She makes learning exciting and practical. With no guitar experience, I've learned basic guitar chords, a blues chord progression, and pentatonic scales, in only 3 weeks. Which set the foundation for me to began learning my first guitar song. Betty is a real musician, and her passion for the craft will inspire you to want to learn and become better. If you want to learn from the best, you want to learn from Betty.

Private Songwriting Teacher

Everyone's a Poet/Singer/Songwriter at heart! We all have songs and melodies and poetic fancies that have been sleeping inside of us (sometimes for years), and we long to bring them out, but somehow lack the tools, and, most importantly, the encouragement to share our creative treasure trove with others, and, even for our own self satisfaction. As an awarding and published poet, (see Amazon.com for my "Kaleidoscope: Life's Meaningful Reflections" series of books and audio books) I'll help you begin to express your thoughts, emotions, and stories in your own songs, and in your own unique style that will bring your message to the world! No time like the present to start!

Become the masterful Singer that you really ARE! Learn to bring out the natural beauty and power of your Voice, and to match your own unique personality and vocal qualities to complementing repertoire in order to show your voice and talents in their best light. We'll develop the repertoire that fi

Before my first class, I knew nothing about opera singing. I have had 10+ classes with Vanessa now and have learned a lot in techniques. She is very patient and knowledgable. She is able to tell instantly what's right or wrong which is super helpful.

Vanessa is amazing teacher!!! The best I ever had!!!!
Vince M.
I am a professional speaker and I decided to pursue some speaker voice coaching. This was my first lesson and Vanessa was friendly and great personality. I felt comfortable with her
immediately. She provided education, demonstration, observed me apply the techniques, and offered constructive feedback. After the class, I was excited to practice what I learned. I will definitely continue to go back to Vanessa. I highly recommend her.

Songwriting is my personal favorite way to work with music. It allows us to highlight what is unique and interesting about our individual voices and stories. Theory and technique can help, but no amount of either necessary for songwriting, nor will any amount of either automatically result in good songs. It's all about honing in on a creative vision.

I am always excited to students with this fun and potent aspect of the musical life. I respect the courage it requires to take this step, and I carefully avoid offering guidance that is overbearing or discouraging. What I will offer is a lot of experience, having written countless songs of my own over the years and also studied and taught virtually every style of song for all the masters. This gives me a wide array of tools, tips, and strategies, along with sincere feedback and encouragement. I hope you'll give it a try!

Besides being a very skilled guitarist, Phillip is very professional and reliable. He has a very laid back personality which really worked well for my shy 7-year-old daughter. He was patient and encouraging.

A very good first lesson. We went over breathing exercises and scales. Also had time for Amy to critique my speaking style through a portion of a speech I will be giving in a month. Time well-spent.

She briefly went over the next lesson plan and gave me a little homework to do as well.

I got a lot out of this lesson and I can see how this will help me accomplish my goal of being a better public speaker and having a more controlled and stronger voice.

Looking forward to future lessons.

"Enormous Student base an affirmation of an Enormously Successful Teacher

Fawn is a warrior for justice. She rights all the wrongs of other teachers bad coaching. She turned my sons bad piano habits around in just 2 lessons! My daughter's bad vocal habits changed after the first lesson! I have never seen anything like it. We are grateful to have found her. I now have confidence that my children are in the best hands possible. I love the energy she puts into her recitals and the enormous student base she has is an affirmation that she is doing great things in California!

"Andy is one of the best instructors I've ever had. We met through LinkedIn, as I was looking for artistic development for my music. He came up with a six-month-long plan after our first lesson. Needless to say I was very impressed.

He also has a great ability to explain and make relevant some obscure concepts. Music theory concepts that had evaded my understanding for years were made simple as 2+2.

I highly recommend Andy for anyone looking to further their artistic development!"

"I was really nervous about my performance of an original pop-song for my concert coming up in school. Things weren't working out with my previous teacher and that's when I found Taylor! She guided me through pairing the music with my lyrics, but in a way that really made me feel confident in what I was making! Taylor is super fun and easy to work with and when we weren't writing... we were cracking dad jokes! XD I performed the song at my school concert and I couldn't have been happier with the result! I definitely recommend Taylor and want to work with her soon again :3"

Songwriting Tips: How to Write Lyrics To Your First Song

Are  you learning to play guitar because you want to be able to write your own songs? Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares some tips to help you write lyrics to your first song... Just as writing a song on guitar can seem like work for only a select few, so can writing the words to one. Once again, this assumption and the truth are completely unrelated. You don't need to be Bob Dylan or Bernie Taupin to do it – you only need to have something to say. I first began writing lyrics as teenag …
