About Michael

I have been involved in music all of my life. As a child I played trumpet in band and sang in school and church choirs. My favorite movies were musicals and they still are my favorite. Music was my major in college, which included singing, dancing, acting and playing musical instruments. I like all types of music. As a school teacher, I taught 3rd. grade through high school, everything from band and choir to musical theater. I also taught private students, of all ages, piano, guitar, voice and most of the wind instruments. *** Lesson Details *** My students can expect to learn the basics of music theory, such as melody, harmony, key signature and rhythm. I want my students to have fun by learning the kind of music they like best while learning to appreciate the kind of music that ...

Michael is simply awesome. My son has been through lessons before, but they neer inspired him to practice or take his clarinet seriously. Michael's joy and interest not just in music, but in who Justice is, has made a big difference. Thanks, Michael!

Liz J. Sonoma, CA

With over 20 years of vocal practice, Liz knows how to control and use her breathe and voice well and loves to share that knowledge. This subject is another favorite!

About Liz

After graduating California Institute of the Arts with a multi-focus on several aspects of music including African dance, Indonesian gamelan, songwriting, recording, classical voice and piano, folk guitar, and more, Liz had the excellent opportunity to teach theater to a local musical theater summer youth program. All summer, she taught class sizes ranging from 10 to 26 students of the ages 5-10. Her initiative later led to being hired at this local community theater. Along with this theater teaching experience, she has been teaching piano, guitar, ukulele, flute & voice lessons for over 9 years. Her students have gone from knowing nothing about music to learning and performing entire pieces on their own as well as even auditioning & for agents and becoming signed artists in Los Angeles. ...

Luna C. Santa Rosa, CA

About Luna

After over 20 years experience teaching music, I listen carefully to every student's goals. Learning to play piano or sing should be an enjoyable experience, even when the lessons require a mix of hard work, practice, and perseverance in fulfilling those musical goals. With my many years of experience as a performer, songwriter, and teacher, I can bring first-hand insight to each lesson. After all, music is a wonderful journey; let the adventure begin! *** Lesson Details *** Music should be both fun and fulfilling. I help my students reach their musical goals by giving them the tools they need to make that journey. Together we explore different musical styles as each student learns how to navigate reading music, ear training, and musical theory. With some practice and commitment, in ...

Miles M. Sebastopol, CA

I like to teach the student the music that they want to learn. Every student is unique, not only in their abilities and learning styles, but in what they want to achieve, and even why they want to take lessons in the first place.

There are three primary areas in which I would like to see every student improve: Musicality, Technique, and Repertoire. Depending on a student's needs and desires, one of these might receive more or less emphasis (and lesson time) than the others. However, I strive to help my students continually improve in all three areas.

While many teachers have a particular method with which they are comfortable, teaching all of their students out of the same set of books, I prefer to approach the teaching of each student separately. I strive to design an individualized lesson plan for each and every student, helping them develop the specific skills they require while playing the music they love!

I am here to help you reach your goals, not my own. As such, ...

Miles has not only helped me learn piano, he has introduced me to a ton of great music I had never heard before. He has been very patient and encouraging with me, and he has helped me get over my fear of playing in front of other people. Miles is an excellent, inspiring teacher!

I started taking piano lessons from Miles a year ago as a complete beginner. He's taught me how to read music, play classical music, and play a few rock and blues songs as well! My favorite part of the lesson is when I get to improvise while Miles plays with me. The lessons are always so fun and inspiring.
Ruth E. Santa Rosa, CA

I am a very experienced, kind, supportive and very knowledgable voice teacher. I have helped high school kids get into summer programs, honor choirs, lead roles and colleges. I love to help amateur choral singers master their music and gain confidence and skills. I am an expert on vocal health and varied repertoire.

About Ruth

I've been a professional musician for many years in the classical singing world. I love all kinds of music and have been teaching for over ten years, students ages 5 to 80. I'm known for being very kind and supportive. I have two degrees in Music, one from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, England. I've been active on classical choral and early music recordings and therefore I get to vote in the GRAMMYs ... my high school students usually help me to consider the Best New Artist category although I have strong opinions of my own because I love pop music too! I teach beginning piano, and all levels of singing. I've raised two great kids of my own and am married to another professional musician. I love helping people to bring more music into their lives!
