Very knowledgeable and my daughter saw improvement with just 5 lessons. We plan to continue with her on a biweekly basis
Kristina
Elena is an amazing teacher - knowledgeable, knows how to bring the best out in her students, her lessons have been very effective and to the point. The progress my daughter made in singing is unbelievable - from "we don't think she can" to " wow!! She can sing!" - her teaching technique is very effective. Professional and a pleasure to deal with. Thank you, Elena! You are the best!

She was great! She was patient, kind, and honest. Unfortunately her schedule is tight but I would still recommend

Rebecca is not only professional and patient but she is an expert at identifying the best vocal exercises to address your specific weaknesses. She would make a perfect teacher for beginners, experienced singers and anyone in between. I've been a student for about 10 lessons and have noticed a big difference!

Pamela is great, very professional and welcoming. This was my daughter's first voice lesson ever and she was super excited when it was over. Looking forward to the next lesson. Highly recommended.
Kristian
I have had a vocal coach before meeting Pam, but she absolutely took it to another level. Pamela does a good job with teaching the mechanics of singing, as she pin points which muscles the body is using and how to use them properly when singing. She has a variety of warm ups and stretches to get your voice and body prepared to perform and is very good and pushing you to become your best. If you are a serious singer and would like to take the knowledge of your craft a step further, I would definitely recommend.

We are so happy with Pamela, she has helped my daughter maximize her talents. Alayna finally was accepted into the singing group at her high school which is very competitive. We are thrilled!! Thanks Pamela :)

Hello there! My name is Diana. I am a Russian-trained professional flutist based in northern California.

Our 16 year old daughter had a wonderful lesson and is looking forward to many more!
Iris Moore
Diana is an excellent musician. She has studied under very fine masters in Russia . I have seen her in many concerts as a soloist, part of an ensemble and in an orchestra. Not only is she a fine musician but also a very good teacher. I highly recommend taking flute lessons from a very gifted artist.
Tanya
Diana is an excellent instructor! Patient, encouraging and super good at explaining. She took my 11 year old daughter from not being able to play a single note and not knowing how to read music to playing pieces and reading notes at top speed really fast! And my daughter always looks forward to her next lesson with Ms. Diana! She sends a detailed homework assignment after each lesson as well as a monthly progress report. My daughter loves her lessons and Ms. Diana takes great care to make practicing not just effective but fun! She has a great understanding of children and how to get them engaged.

complete novice; adult student. First lesson very relaxed. Excellent blend through-out lesson of questions and information my goals and background as well as instructor's goals for me and his background. First "technical" part of lesson was manageable and care taken by Lyle to make sure I understood what was being presented.

Have you always wanted to play violin by ear?!  To play all of your favorite songs or play in a band?!

If so, I can help you discover the improviser that already exists inside of you! It's gonna be fun🙂
And yes you will still have to run scales, there is no getting around it... I tried.
Under 16, parents must attend the full lesson and will assist in daily music practice.

CLASSICAL
You want a teacher who will set you up with the foundational technique you need while bringing in songs you've always wanted to learn.

We will go through the Suzuki Method books with supplemental material (though I am not a Suzuki teacher) to instill the art of balanced violin playing into your body and motor functions while our minds play with the beauty of rhythm, timing, tone, expression, and musicality. When you are ready, I am happy to arrange songs that fit your interest in addition to ...

"I took guitar lessons from Jon a few months ago.
the lessons were the best investment I ever made.
they were transformative.
they took me to the next level.
and there is just no comparison to the level I was at previously.
I grew in super fantastic ways.
lessons with Jon helped me to become a better guitarist and singer.
but, also a better musician. I learned a ton about how to be the best musician that I can be from him.
the guitar techniques that I wanted to learn from him, are challenging.
at the beginning, some of it was impossible.
he encouraged me. told me I could do it.
showed me a ton of super cool techniques.
told me stuff about how to use my mental powers (stuff like about HOW we learn).
he knows a lot about learning.
and he's super generous in teaching it.
I highly recommend for everyone to take lessons from Jon."

"Ms Melody is a professional piano teacher with great dedication and ability to work with children. In 2016, Ms Melody taught my then, 6 year old son. It was his first attempt at playing piano and Ms Melody was patient and at the same time held him accountable for practicing at home. My son played four pieces at the Spring recital. He felt accomplished and proud. It was under Ms Melody guidance that he developed love for playing piano.
Ms Melody Spring Recital was so professionally done. She takes her job very seriously and as a mom, I appreciate her effort and energy in teaching my son.
Thank you Ms Melody!"
