Edwin is very kind and patient. He has great attention for detail and will give gentle instruction on how to make adjustments to improve your guitar playing. Edwin is a natural when it comes to music. He can hear a complicated song and know what chords/rhythm to play. He is also very knowledgeable about music theory and the technical aspects of guitar playing. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Edwin is extremely patient and good natured. His knowledge of music and his ear for chords is amazing. I am a beginner and within a few lessons I am playing full songs from major bands. I couldn't be happier with Edwin and will be working with him for a long time.

Fabulous cello teacher!!! We are so pleased that our daughter is taking lessons from Arlette. When our daughter wanted to learn cello (2 years ago), Arlette came highly recommended. We were not disappointed! Arlette teaches all aspects of playing the cello, including music theory, and developing musically. She's passionate, caring, patient every step of the way, inspirational, and makes it so much fun!--consequently, my girl recently auditioned and was accepted to play in a high school orchestra (she's a middle school student). She loves playing cello!

Arlette is a wonderful teacher and has really clicked with my daughter. My daughter looks forward to her lesson each week. She is teaching her how to read and understand the music as well as how to play the cello. Here sessions are very relaxed and fun and I am confident that my daughter will not only learn how to play the cello, but love playing the cello. I can see how she passes that passion on to the student. If you are looking for a fun, passionate and well education teacher to work with your children, she is the one.

Sincerely,

Karynn Bonner

I first began studying with Arlette when I was a young girl who knew nothing about reading music. She was an amazing teacher for me as a young girl, and continued to be as I grew up. Arlette has taught me and helped me hone my technique and musicality, from the beginning before I could hold a bow through the years and improvements.

I highly recommend Bryan

If you are looking for guitar lessons then Bryan is your guy. I have been taking lessons from him for 6 months now and had no experience prior. I have learned a lot from him and not just about playing a guitar but music in general. I highly recommend Bryan.

Very helpful!

Bryan has been a very helpful, knowledgeable and flexible guitar teacher. He uses my interests and questions to drive lesson content. I find personally that understanding the music theory behind what I'm learning to play is very helpful, so we've spent a lot of time breaking things down. He's very knowledgeable. He also does a good job of explaining how he uses his intuition as a guitar player and musician, which helps me develop intuition of my own.I would definitely recommend Bryan!

Delilah is an amazing violinist whose passion for music is contagious. I am almost 25 years old and six months ago I picked up a violin for the very first time. Playing this instrument was a life-long dream that I finally decided to pursue and Delilah's encouragement and support has helped keep me going. I was nervous to begin lessons because my memories of playing the guitar was of the process becoming less about artistic exploration and more about conforming to a rigorous routine that I soon turned against. My experiences with the violin have been extraordinarily different, thanks to Delilah.

I love Delilah! She always has useful tips and suggestions that are so helpful. I have been playing several years and have taken lessons and classes elsewhere. She introduced me to practice techniques that make conquering a new piece much, much quicker and easier. Now I am way more confident with my instrument
Dylan L. Los Angeles, CA

About Dylan

Hello future students and parental units! It is with great passion that I express my love of teaching and my musical journey with you. I grew up in a very musical family in North Carolina. We would travel to many "Old-Time" music festivals, and I would sing and dance to my parents' music, performing often with them. I soon began classical piano lessons when I was six years old. I went to college for music while teaching piano, voice, and songwriting at a local K-8 school and started my own mobile lesson business. I continue to learn new voice and piano techniques today. I work hard to create a safe environment for students to explore their highest music potential through technique, daily practice, and creativity, and I give parents the tools to aid in their children's musical ...

Dylan is an entity unto herself; a most gentle soul, incredibly (and beyond) creative, original, mindful, and generous. Never will you meet a brighter ray of sunshine or a more genuine spirit.

I always tell Joanna Rose to follow her own lead, to be uniquely wonderful, to follow no, one, individual...with the exception of Dylan.
I find myself telling her to look to her mentor, emulate and be encouraged by her, because her mentor will never lead her astray...In no way does Dylan lead her students on any path other than their own.

It's a powerful individual that can take someone's talents and help them use those gifts to form their own unique "package" to present to the world.

Joanna Rose is forever changed by her connection with Dylan. They met when Joanna was a little First Grader, who was hesitant, but anxious to share her talents with the world! Dylan cradled Joanna Rose in loving kindness, encouraging her to sing, write, and play, POWERFULLY. From deep within her heart, Dylan nurtures, so very naturally.

Without Dylan's entrance onto the stage of Joanna Rose's life, Joanna would never have found the part of herself that truly has become her "self."

I cannot, as Joanna Rose's mother, have dreamed of more. Thank you Dylan~ It has been a magical eight years...

We had the wonderful opportunity to work w/ Dylan in our home for 2 years. Both of my daughters loved working w/ her & flourished under her tutelage. She is an extremely gifted & dedicated young lady that was able to find the strengths of both of my girls & expand upon them. They studied voice, composition, & classical piano w/ Dylan & I couldn't have been happier w/ how they progressed. We certainly miss Dylan & feel very fortunate in being able to work w/ her.

Dylan is a magnificent musician in her own right, but she also shines in being able to connect with children of all ages and adjust her teaching styles appropriately. She is a literal muse to her students, who begin writing their own music in no time. She provides them with unwavering support and courage to allow them to blossom into their own.
