About Michelle

Musician/Songwriter/Performer Poised, energized, and armed with unforgettable performance ability, Michelle G. is a firework in the artistic arena. Her training began at the young age of 3 with the violin, and a few years later received classes for piano and voice. Excelling in all three, Michelle developed a very passionate and dramatic personality that eventually led her to more dramatic genres such as opera and stage acting. Her aptitude to understand human emotions and relationships gives her a wide spectrum to play in as an actress. There is an organic flow to her interpretations both as an actress and musician that leads the audience to feel her emotional current. Her honest characterizations introduce deeper perspectives on what seems like the ordinary roles and storylines. ...

Spanish has always been difficult for me, but Michelle has helped me so much! She's the first Spanish teacher I actually look forward to seeing each time we have a lesson because she makes the lessons so much fun! She's very funny and easy to work with. Whenever I need to make a change to a lesson she always does everything she can to make it work. I've finally been able to raise my grade in Spanish after working with her!

At the risk of giving away my best kept secret, Michelle is THE BEST!!!

Not only is she an amazing teacher, she is an incredible talent, and awesome person. Her relaxed and nurturing nature enables you to feel super comfortable and excited to learn. She motivates you to try your best and focuses on your strengths, while building and improving upon your weaknesses.

I've taken singing lessons in the past, and after one class with Michelle, I realized, I hadn't learned anything! If you really want to learn in a positive and motivating environment, take classes with Michelle. Just don't sign up for my time slot...I called dibs and I'm going to be taking classes for a while! Lol. =)

From Bach Cantatas to Broadway tunes, he's even dared to sing Denver, bringing audiences to tears with his own rendition of Annie's Song. He is a torch song tenor, a la Rondstadt's 'Round Midnight but with the power and passion of Pavarotti. Like most classically-trained tenors, Patrick can list many of the master works among his repertoire. Starting with Michigan Opera Theatre's Opera-in-Residence program, he performed in Madame Butterfly, Die Fledermaus and The Mikado and others. In Detroit & Windsor Ontario, he performed Bach, Schubert, Handel, Dubois, Mozart and Dvorak. While Patrick's early career focused on classical sacred performances, his real passion is to ...

Awesome!

I needed to practice a solo for my Easter Vigil Psalm performance, and he helped me take care of my instrument, taught me great exercises, and gave me good advice about my career. He is a very nice instructor. He will help you grow as a singer and performer, and you always learn something new everyday with him...I highly recommend him to everyone because he really knows music theory.

"From your mouth to Patrick's ear*...

I was looking for an experienced and patient teacher, one who really listens, and am lucky enough to be able to work with Patrick. He not only hears the singing, but has the flexibility and talent to adapt to the needs and concerns of the singer. Highly recommended. *"From your mouth to G*d's ear," is a Jewish expression meaning, "May what you just said be true!"

Excellent Teacher and Guitarist!

Tony has been a great instructor; he is a very knowledgeable and skilled guitarist with so much passion that is very infectious! He really gives me the motivation to try harder until I get it! He is very patient and tries to understand how I learn and what I want to learn and customizes the lesson to my learning ability. It's not easy teaching me, but some how he figures it out! Tony thanks for all your time, effort and genuine care in teaching me the guitar and being the jump start for a lifetime of guitar playing!

About Andrea

I come from Italy, but have been living in the US for the past twelve years. I have achieved two degrees (production & performance) cum laude at the prestigious Berklee College Of Music in Massachusetts and have ever since worked as a guitarist and producer. I have been teaching for over ten years privately and in schools. I have helped students of all levels from beginners to fellow professionals. My philosophy is to make the learning process as enjoyable as possible and at the same time make sure the student keeps marking solid progress towards their goals. I believe to achieve that as many of my students told me I had helped them not just in the subject, but in their overall confidence, concentration skills and the quality of their study or practice.

Andrea is a very good guitar teacher, I can guarantee. While he was in Italy this summer, I had the chance to take a few lessons from him. I am a beginner, so we focused on rather simple things, but what I can say without a doubt is that his approach to teaching is very useful and at the same time funny. I had taken some lessons with other teachers before, but they were somehow dull and left me a sensation of "incompleteness" like I hadn't been able to fully comprehend what was taught to me. This was not the case. Plus, he's Italian, so could you ask for more than a good lesson AND pasta?
Daniel I. Van Nuys, CA

About Daniel

I've been teaching for almost 20 years. In that time I've had students of all ages, abilities and personalities. From the casual student to the aspiring professional, I tailor my approach and focus on meeting the unique needs and goals of the student rather than applying a contrived method or curriculum. I've had a thorough conservatory training at The Eastman School of Music and Interlochen Arts Academy where I studied composition, music history, theory, counterpoint, orchestration as well as piano, voice, and more. My professional experience is extensive. I've been doing commercial scoring for 12 years, I have experience with modern recording and engineering techniques and I play many instruments. Drawing on my solid conservatory training as well as years of experience as a ...

My 9 year old son has been taking lessons with Daniel for the past 3 years. During this time we have seen a lot of growth in our son's musical abilities. We really appreciate Daniel's patience and flexibility within his lesson plan. Our son had learned theory, music history and practiced ear training all within his lessons. Recently our son was writing a "score" for one of his home made movies. Daniel was able to give him "real world" advice and incorporate that into his lesson. We are thrilled to have been referred to Daniel and look foreword to having our 4 year old start lessons next year.

Daniel is an awesome instructor. He is very knowledgeable and passionate about music and knows how to teach and convey that enthusiasm about music to his students. I thoroughly enjoy my weekly harmonic lessons with him.

I'm also very happy with how my daughter is advancing in her piano lessons wit h Daniel. Right after we switched over to Daniel for her piano lessons I noticed a huge improvement in her musical abilities.

Thank you, Daniel!
