Our voice is such a unique instrument, because it is inside of us. It makes the act of singing amazing and hard at the same time, because we all have different instruments and there is no general rule that works for everyone in the same way. When I teach, I always take into consideration the uniqueness of the voice I am working with, and this requires a great deal of attention and sensitivity. I am very passionate about teaching and my goal is to share my passion and my knowledge, in order to acquire the tools to develop that beautiful instrument that our voice is!

As someone who as always loved singing and believing I had a good voice I self taught myself for many years. It was only when I had my first lesson with Alessia I realized how much a real professional is needed. She showed me my true potential and unlocked talent I always knew I had. She has a special way a picking out exactly what I needed to tweak or change that gave me instant results. After every lesson I get more and more motivated and confident about my voice.

I’ve had three lessons so far and I feel so supported by Gail. I’m an adult student and Gail is very patient with me and kind. I actually really enjoy going to my lessons! She has already taught me so many handy tricks that she learned from many years of experience. I’m brand new to the violin and Gail is excellent at helping me with my hand placement and I feel confident that what she’s teaching me is really setting me up for success and good habits with the violin.

My son was excited about Ms Gail’s knowledge of the viola.

With years of teaching and gigging experience as a lead trumpet player, jazz soloist, classical player and composer I can guarantee improvement in whatever area my student is interested in. I can teach from a beginning level all the way to advanced players looking for additional coaching. All ages are welcome. In my lessons we will identify what aspects of trumpet playing and music you are interested in and work to improve in those areas. I specialize in fundamental brass technique, range improvement, endurance, jazz improvisation and songwriting. My teaching style will incorporate a theoretical approach so that my students learn about music as a whole while improving their trumpet playing.

About Pablo

With years of teaching and gigging experience in a wide variety of musical styles, I can teach students whatever they are interested in learning. I believe the most musical improvement occurs when the student is having fun with the process of learning. My lessons are a fun and relaxed environment w

I've been teaching high level guitar,vocals and bass for the last 20 years,and as a result of my extensive teaching experience, I know what works for people and what doesn't. I know how to get the results that help people grow as the musician they want to be as quickly as possible. My name Paul C and I grew up in the Boston area where at the time the public high school system offered high level music theory classes. I took advantage and had an understanding of high level music theory by the time I was 17 years old. At 17yrs old I started studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston, but after a year I moved to L.A to pursue a music opportunity I was offered. I've been playing guitar and singing in bands for 40 years and teaching full time for the last 20yrs on the West Coast from L.A to Seattle. I see alot of the insights to the musicianship of classic American music fading away and getting lost in oblivion, so I try to teach what I've learned over the years, while helping budding ...

Paul is a great guitar teacher ! Awesome blues rhythm. Electric , acoustic . You name it! Learn chords scales and theory. Learn songs you want to play without being overwhelmed by over complicated information overload. I really appreciate Paul’s approach to teaching guitar and both myself and my son will continue training with him. Thank you Paul! 👍
Glen
I’ve worked with Paul C. for several years with great success... Paul was masterful in transitioning me from Blues, to Country, and even even did a bit of Jazz.
Are you Looking for a dedicated Musican, one who loves the craft, will instill that passion into you, then I’d recommend Paul.. the raw skills Paul taught me, reading music, playing scales, learning songs, and stepping out of the closet and playing live has been awesomely executed.. Paul is family now.. I’d recommend him absolutely... give him a try, I think you’ll enjoy music more than ever at the hands of Paul..
Michelle
Paul has been amazing for my son. He is very patient and engaging. He always comes prepared and follows through with what he teaches. He comes up with new ideas and finds ways that help with how your child learns best. My son is leaps and bounds better since we switched to Paul !

"Niki has been teaching our son for a year since he was 6. He has learned so much in the last year- she does a great job of starting with the basics- sight reading, music theory, fingering. Her quiet way keeps him calm but also pushes him to learn. Most of all, he really enjoys the piano and looks forward to lessons!"

"Trusted professional vocal teacher

Francisca was my singing teacher for two years and in that time with her I achieved so much. It was right before one of my biggest singing years (Year 12 HSC Music Examinations) that I met her, and we clicked straight away. I don’t believe I would have been able to get through it without her. She gave me confidence and never doubted my ability to take on any song I chose. My voice was the healthiest and strongest it had ever been when she was teaching me. She helped me to further develop my chest voice (something I had always struggled with) and introduced me to a wider range of music genres. It was always the best part of my week going to singing lessons; they were fun and always beneficial, each lesson I walked away with something new to apply. Not only did I learn more about my voice, she developed my stage presence, challenged me and gave me insight into the music industry. With her guidance and continual support I achieved 89% in my HSC music examination, numerous amounts of gigs and my first lead role in an amateur musical production. Always professional, friendly, compassionate and positive; everything a teacher should be when dealing with an instrument as delicate and personal as the voice. Even though I do not receive lessons anymore, across the seas Francisca is still supporting me. I am so blessed to have had her as my teacher and friend."
