About Arrica
I was born and raised in Los Angeles but I've just recently relocated to the Bay Area. I am a Professional Musician/Songwriter/Vocalist teaching songwriting, voice, and performance technique as well as a combination thereof. I began singing at a very young age for anyone who would listen (so my parents tell me) and began taking music lessons shortly thereafter. I am now a USC graduate and have also studied music privately for over 25 years as well as at the esteemed Vocal Power Institute. I've professionally released several albums and I am grateful to have had my music featured/licensed by Starbucks, NBC, The CW network, NikeWomen.com, and MTV. I've toured extensively playing to audiences across the country and have had the honor of sharing the stage with artists ranging from Conor Oberst, Inara George, Johnette Napolitano, Martha Wain
wright, to Jackson Browne. I have experience teaching both adults and children, and enjoy teaching beginning as well as intermediate to advanced students. In addition to teaching privately, I have experience teaching children through my volunteer work with The Girls Rock Alliance, a non-profit organization that aims to teach young girls about self-confidence and self-expression through music education.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy-going, friendly and I believe that developing a great student/teacher rapport is the key to making the most out of the time we spend together. The curriculum I utilize is specifically designed to meet the student's individual needs. Initially we'll spend time assessing where you are and where you'd like to be. Most importantly, we'll set goals and create a lesson plan that will allow you to attain them. We'll work on basic techniques (or intermediate to advanced depending on skill level), for example - breath support, vowel placement, posture, relaxation, the fundamentals of song structure and music theory. We'll also work on the psychology of performance and eliminating any unwanted tension that may arise. We'll choose songs to work on that you'll enjoy singing, or analyze the songs you love in order to discover and/or improve upon your own songwriting abilities.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Front music studio area w/ guitars, computer with protools, keyboard, microphone, pa system, and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a small keyboard and/or guitar

*** Specialties ***
My main musical styles that I perform and teach are Pop, Rock, Folk, and Americana/Country. I specialize in creating a lesson plan that suits the needs of each individual student.

Arrica has been such a wonderful teacher for my 11-year-old daughter. (She was 9 when she started with Arrica.) Our girl has a lot of raw talent but needed some good instruction that wasn't too formal. Africa is just the right blend of traditional singing technique and fun rock-n-roll, record your own music on Garage band. We love her!

About Steven
I consider myself dedicated to two passions in life: the art of musical creation, and the joy of kindling that spark in others. I've been teaching private music lessons for the past five years, and have worked with students of many different ages and proficiency levels. I am always on the lookout to work with new people who are just as excited about creating music as I am! My musical career began fifteen years ago as a classically-trained pianist, and soon after began to expand to more contemporary styles such as rock, pop, jazz, and electronic. I spent four years at the University of Miami studying under Academy Award nominee Chris Boardman, and graduated with a degree in Music Composition & Production and a double minor in Music Business and Creative American Music. I currently reside in Los Angeles, where I write and produce music for
films, TV shows, and video games. I look forward to meeting you and starting our musical journey together!

Although today was my son's first lesson with Steven, I gave him 5 stars because my son really enjoyed the lesson and also liked him a lot. From the start, Steven was calm and very very patient. He made my son comfortable and worked around his pace and level.

Amy taught my teen daughter voice for approximately a year before we had to reluctantly leave her when we moved out of state.
Her knowledge, patience and good humor were unsurpassed. She continues to support and encourage my daughter in her singing even at a distance. I would recommend her over all others for any child!

About Faithe
I'm a professional instrumentalist who plays the piano, keyboards and, most recently, the organ! Music is my passion! I've played piano since the age of 4. My husband and I are Worship Leaders at a baptist church in Star, MS. We've been married for 18 years and have 3 beautiful daughters.
I've been teaching piano since the age of 21, almost 25 years. I teach piano to students of all different ages and experience levels. I grew up playing southern gospel, but studied classical in college. I can teach students to read music and pursue piano excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student.
I teach from a variety of curricula. Alfred's is probably the one I use the most, especially for adults. I also teach from John Thompson who seems to use more of a class
ical approach. But I also throw in other genres.
I cater each lesson tonthe students wants and likes goals. We always have a great time in our lessons.

As a student, I took flute lessons for over 10 years. I have worked with a lot of really amazing teachers, and like to think I am a blend of all of them. I enjoy molding well rounded musicians (scales, ear training, sight reading, and of course learning pieces). There is a lot of great flute repertoire and I can't wait to dive into it with you!
