Great

Jonathan is super patient and kind. But also gives good feedback that has helped me improve. Along with vocal warm ups and singing songs we work on ear training and sight reading. His approach is gentle and non judgmental. Great teacher for both kids and kids at heart. I am truly pleased and would highly recommend him.

Great teacher and excellent musician!

Jonathan has taught both of my daughters piano, and one of them voice. He is an accomplished musician who knows well both music theory and the joy of creating it. He is reliable, punctual, and encouraging. My girls have fun AND learn a lot!
Andrew W. Burbank, CA

Music theory has always been a fascinating subject to me. It's not enough for me to just listen to music or perform it, I want to really understand it. I really enjoy knowing why a piece of music sounds the way it does and the elements involved in creating a song or composition. The only thing I enjoy more than knowing it, is sharing that knowledge.

About Andrew

I have taught private music lessons for over 10 years. I joined my first band playing bass at the age of 13, soon moving into my high school marching band, orchestra, and jazz band. I attended both Los Angeles Valley College studying music as well as California State University Northridge obtaining a degree in Film/Television composition. I have experience writing both songs and scores for documentaries, short films, and animations. I have a wide knowledge of many different musical styles and genres including: classical, jazz, rock, funk, pop, etc. I am currently working as a Music Coordinator and enjoy giving lessons in my free time. *** Lesson Details *** I am very patient and will allow my students to go at their own pace. I make sure that my students get the most out of their ...

Contagiously passionate

Kelly was creative enough to hold the attention of a wiggly eight-year-old. Her passion for and knowledge of music was contagious and brilliant. Kelly's very honest in her feedback, but presents it constructively with humor and kindness. She kept my daughter actively engaged and was always encouraging.

best teacher I have ever had

I studied with other teachers in the past. What separates Armen from others is his passion, patience and professionalism when it comes to teaching violin. He makes something as complicated as playing the violin simple and fun. He analyzes the weaknesses and the strengths of the student and tailors a suitable program for the student to excel. In addition, he brings so much culture and flavor to his style of teaching, this from playing in world renowned orchestras and groups such as Yanni and others. He is by far the best teacher I have ever had.
Vanessa L. Burbank, CA

Beginning & Intermediate music theory using college textbooks and breaking it down for the level of the student.

About Vanessa

Bachelor's in musical theater performance from Columbia College Chicago. Audition prep (acting/singing) and vocal technique for clients since 2007. My critique during your lesson is always honest, so you know when I give you a compliment it is well deserved. I especially love working with non-singers and helping them find their voice. I always start with an assessment to see where your work is currently at and where we can go from there. I keep notes during your lesson, send you an email afterwards with your homework for the week, then I use those notes to think of personalized ways to improve your technique before your next lesson. If honesty and results are what you're looking for in a teacher, I promise to be that teacher for you. *** Lesson Details *** Whether you're ...

I Left My First Session SO EXCITED!!!

I didn't realize so much could be accomplished in an hour, but I left our first lesson with an understanding about where I'm at with my voice, what is special about my voice, and feeling really excited and encouraged with where my voice can go. Vanessa was VERY patient with me, as I'm very much out of practice, but it took her no time at all to pin point my trouble spots and she quickly had other suggestions if certain exercises didn't work for my voice. After our session, I drove away in my car just beaming and I couldn't stop singing. Can't wait for our next session!

My son has taken lessons with Paul for over 5 years. Not only is Paul an accomplished musician, he's a great teacher. His teaching style is positive and supportive. He has modified my son's lessons through the years, as his goals and needs have changed. Paul has always been professional, reliable and enthusiastic. He genuinely seems to enjoy what he does, and as a bonus, Paul is also a really nice guy, who has had a positive influence on my teenage son's life.

He helped me find the most efficient and effective way to learn and practice, which is just as useful in everyday life.
