David, 8yo, just started his guitar lessons with Adam and he is extremely happy with what he already knows after only one lesson! We cannot wait for the next one!

Adam is awesome! Thank you so much!
Herbert
Adam is a teacher par excellence. I am self taught from a well known book. I was doing well I thought until I got stuck. Adam gently showed me where I erred and made great suggestions for me to move on correctly. I never felt rushed or “ put down.” Adam was patient, open for questions, encouraging, comforting. I know I need much help to correct and advance in guitar from matters such as tuning, restringing, reading, and other things too many to write about. I look forward to my next lesson with enthusiasm.

I'm a classically trained vocalist with 10 years of experience in Musical Theatre, who transitioned into working with pop singers 20 years ago. My experiences consist of vocal producing, in-studio coaching, accent training, vocal arranging, and background singing for artists like Mandy Moore, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Lopez, Diego Torres, CNCO, and the likes, as well as for TV shows like La Voz, La Voz Kids, La Banda, Mira Quien Baila and France's Les Anges TV series. Most recently, I've been working to help develop and coach young artists and influencers who need overall development and guidance, not just in terms of technique, but recording vocals, vocal producing, social media content creation and strategy, on-stage training, and more.

About Liza

Hi guys, my name is Liza Q, PKA Liza. I've been performing since the age of 5, songwriting and recording since the age of 8, and trained/worked in musical theatre and classical voice for over 10 years after that. I became a professional songwriter by 18, and since, transitioned to working with pop

Liza is an amazing person inside and out. She has so much experience and versatility. She studies her students and makes sure that she's giving them all the techniques they need to improve. I've had many vocal coaches in my life and she is by far the most inspiring! She is funny, nice, and she always makes me feel comfortable, even when doing things that I might think are out of my range. She pulls the potential out of me.

"Zach is teaching our seven-year-old son, Ben, the piano. He's been working with Ben for seven months, now. Zach is kind and incredibly patient. He is encouraging by default. Ben looks forward to his lessons. Zach seems to match Ben's pace, pushing him forward when it's appropriate and reviewing material when it's clear that Ben is not ready. Zach began with familiar tunes, without sheet music, and Ben was proud of his early accomplishments at each step. Now that they're into reading music (using a Disney fake book), Ben feels comfortable and engaged. Zach is a graduate student, and he's on a student schedule (at least for now), which means scheduling lessons around the academic year--an approach that works well for us. It also means that we had the chance to see one of Zach's recitals at ASU, and that was inspirational for our own young pianist (and his dad). Ben and I recommend him highly."

"As a preface, I am a beginner-intermediate music producer, so very much of what I make is still rather amateur. I have spent tens of hours watching different YouTube videos and reading blogs about music production trying to learn how to get better. If I had to put a time frame, I'd say I've been producing as a hobby for about 4 years now.

Anyway, I had a 1-hour lesson with Mark and I feel like I learned more about mixing in that 1-hour than I have in the months watching YouTube videos. Mark is super knowledgeable about music production and its techniques and he had answers to all of my questions. If you're on the fence about booking, I would highly suggest booking with Mark as he is professional, knowledgable, and easy to understand as he breaks down his methods in a beginner-friendly manner - things some other producer mentors struggle with I feel.

I would definitely book again with Mark in the future. If you want to level up your production, Mark is your best bet."

"Mrs. Jennifer has been the greatest most awesome teacher I have ever had. I started lessons when I was 9, and in 6 short years I've become a musician. I feel like I can read/play any piece of music (although I can't...at least not yet). I've learned so much by taking lessons with her. When I started, I barely knew how to read treble clef! Now, this year as a high school freshman, I was able to be in the marching band as a synthesizer player. I can't put into words how much she means to me! Not only is Mrs. Jennifer an amazing person, but she is an amazing teacher as well. I have so much fun at all of our (my sister and I) lessons and I'm dreading college, just because I can't have lessons every week with her. I couldn't have asked for a better role model, and I definitely recommend her as a piano teacher. (As long as she still has time to teach me)"
