For someone like me, who had very little knowledge of music, Haydn was amazing. She really walked me through everything and we started from the basics. All of a sudden I could really see my improvement coming to fruition. She is awesome!!

About Andrew

Musically and personally, I strongly feel that diversity and openness are key in a person's development: when we move outside of our comfort zone and embrace the unknown, we are better able to grow as musicians (and human beings). As a performer, I feel that performing with musicians of different b

Great Experience

From the first lesson, Andrew has been a consummate professional. Each lesson he brings in something new, while making sure that everything we've covered in the past is still ingrained through repetition. Having Andrew as an instructor has opened my eyes to the many facets of drumming, and I have taken skills/techniques with me that will last forever. The feedback does not stop after each lesson, Andrew is available all the time for any questions I may have during the week if I am stumped while practicing. His schedule is flexible with mine, and he is willing to bring in music that I want to personally learn. The lessons are the right balance of fun and teaching, and his studio promotes a learning environment that is not intimidating to let loose if you're a beginner like me.

I'd recommend Andrew to anyone looking to expand their skill set, the lessons have been a great experience.

Deborah's expertise and professionalism are a pleasant surprise when you consider how young she is. I have met teachers that are decades older than her who do not have the ability to accurately tell you exactly what you are doing wrong or how you can correct it. You hear a lot of, "just keep practicing and it will sort itself out" from other instructors, and this could cause you to develop bad habits that could affect your voice. Deborah is the opposite of that.

She pinpoints exactly what I am doing wrong during my lesson and offers suggestions on how to correct it going forward. I appreciate that because if your instructor doesn't tell you, your audience will. And you might not like how they say it. I am there to go beyond just singing in the shower, and her constructive criticism only makes me better. She is also polite when she corrects you, she's not cracking the whip.

She focuses immediately on different techniques that will help you improve your voice so that you can PROGRESS, instead of just banging out scales on the piano lesson after lesson and overlooking mistakes a student may make like some instructors do. I hate to be this blunt, but there are some instructors I have met in the past who do just that (none of them are from takelessons) to me it shows a devotion to the art and a commitment to bringing out the best voice that you have she wants you to be as good as her! To me no one could ask for any more than that in a voice instructor. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone looking for a teacher.
Nadia A.
Deborah is a wonderful teacher. She is patience, caring, understanding, knowledgeable, and motivating. I HIGHLY recommend Deborah as a vocal coach.
Sarita G.
Just as she promise ;work on breathing first, usually I like some time go by before I make a comment but the first introduction went so well, I have a positive outlook of my future practice. I have my questions answer and I also understand them as well. I am sure I have more and have confidence they will be answer....

($10 off online lessons) Hello, my schedule is now available to new students! I cater to the individual's needs while instilling the basics of violin. Every student learns in a different way, and I make sure to teach in the method that is most effective for that student. Because I perform so often, I know the necessary skills to teach violin practically and efficiently.

About Grace

Grace Rodgers, originally from Detroit, is a Los Angeles based violinist who enjoys a varied musical career spanning from classical to pop. Grace often works with current artists, and has been a part many studio recordings and live productions (Kesha, Lea Michele, BØRNS, Megadeth, Gallant, Sabrina

I highly recommend Grace. When i was younger, I mastered a variety of musical instruments and played well into college. Learning the violin has always been elusive. I’ve had many teachers but now i’ve been progressing farther than before. I credit this to Grace. She has a well thought out lesson plan that challenges me while concentrating on the fundamentals and techniques. Some teachers are more forgiving on technique reasoning that it can be corrected at a later date. It’s best to learn it correctly at the beginning.
She is patient and communicates clearly. I enjoy her proper demonstrations. Her enthusiam is infectuous and her passion shines through.
She also teaches my 80 year old mother. It has always been somthing she’s always wanted to learn. It is not easy to teach anyone the violin, let alone an 80 year old. Her lesson plan and approach is quite different to mine but very effective. My mother is progressing well.
Among her teaching aids, she employs a traditional strings book, i find this comforting as it provides a familiar take and consistency. Before moving on, she checks and ensures proficiency and mastery of the previous lessons. Again, reinforcing the fundamentals and building on top of them.
Understandably, the price per lesson is a factor. I find Grace’s rates to be fair and of great value. If you really want to learn and have the violin be a part of your life, hire Grace because of her approach and skill and not based on pricing.
Without knowing much of what to look for in a teacher, i now know its; enthusiam, patience, undertanding, a well defined lesson plan, mastery of skills before moving forward, consistency, open communication and lastly, not taking excuses for sloppiness due to lack of practice. (She will encourage you to practice and you’ll get better which in-turn motivates you). She will not just let you get by but help you master the violin.
Moriah
Grace was an extremely patient, attentive tutor who helped me build foundational bowing and sheet music skills. I highly recommend her for violin lessons!

Grace is fantastic. Very patient and clear.

"Dr. M. is a phenomenal teacher who does a great job customizing her lessons to the needs of the student. She has helped me make amazing progress with my voice, and just as importantly has helped me gain the confidence to be able to sign.

Her lessons are fun, effective, and very positive. All of which help the student learn more and get more out of the lesson. I highly recommend Dr. M. as a teacher to anyone (at any level) who is interested in becoming a better singer."

"Tony is a great teacher!

I started learning the clarinet half a year ago after playing the piano for almost 25 years. Even though I have a lot of music background, I had to start from scratch since I have no experience in any of the woodwind instruments. I'm glad I found Tony to be my clarinet teacher because not only he is a very patient person, he also notices my strengths and also weaknesses, so that I could spend more time on things that I need to work on to be better at the clarinet.
He is very easy to communicate, lessons are always fun and productive, I've been having a lot of fun picking up this new instrument!"
