About Azuri

I Love music, and I love people. I feel that music is and has historically been a way of interpreting and expressing all the diversity in life and our experiences and that our instruments are our tool of expressing, whether it be the drum, guitar, piano, voice, sitar, etc. My inevitable goal here is to help you(student) obtain the technical, theoretical understanding to help you express your own message and story musically and or achieve any musical standard that one connects too and wishes too achieve. Teaching Philosophy - My teaching philosophy is really built on well rounded communication and multiple facets of explanation and examples so that a student can truly understand and learn a topic, surrounded in a very humorous, light and supportive environment. I feel that along with

Azuri is a fun teacher!

I love working with Azuri. He is patient and encourages me. Everytime I have a lesson he says something that opens my eyes. It usually just takes that one meaningful statement he says throughout the lesson for the time there to be worth it all. Moreover, he is a great teacher! It's very fun learning from him.

Michelle G. North Hollywood, CA

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!

Michelle is an amazing acting coach!! She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. She is warm, welcoming, and patient. Working with Michelle has greatly improved my self confidence as an actor. She chooses course material from all different genres, allowing me to feel well rounded and ready to analyze and act out anything put in front of me. I am extremely grateful to have chosen Michelle as my acting coach and excited to see what the future holds for me under her tutelage!!!

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. =)

My First lesson with Sergey was kind of sad at what I could do. My pushups to pull ups were about 3-4 at a time. Threw Sergey training I have been gaining more and more confidence/power over my own body. Lifting ones own weight is not easy. But thanks Sergey after month and half of training and doing what he asks. I am now able to do 11 pull ups, over 200 push ups and allot other crazy things that helping me gain a better core for what I need at Dancing/Life.

Keith was a great help to our sales staff. It was apparent that his ultimate desire was to help us succeed in our sales training efforts when he went out of his way to stay in touch with our management staff through phone calls and email. We would recommend Keith because he is a stand-up guy and truly cares about those seeking his expertise. He will also tell you if he is not able to help in an area, his integrity is top of the line.

Acoustic Guitar · In home
My son had the pleasure of taking guitar lessons for 3 years from Ippolito. His passion for music and teaching style was very inspiring, as well as, his patience and motivating demeanor kept my son interested and wanting to improve his musicianship. Always encouraging, with guided interaction, he kept my son on task during lessons. He was very professional and punctual in all our interactions. Above all, he was appreciative and accommodating to my son's style of music without compromising the basic core instruction for guitar. His goal, as an instructor, was to instill a lifelong passion and appreciation for music. I would highly recommend Ippolito as a guitar teacher. It was a pleasure to work with him.

*Same as Krav Maga description*

Training since I was twelve. Started at Miller's Martial Arts Academy and from a former Israeli Defense Force solider and Navy S.E.A.L. My curriculum is based on the student's desires. I offer a very solid self defense program. Although, if you are looking for just a work out or both this is possible. I get along with all types of people and I advocate peace. Drills are good and we do them but real fights are usually random and chaotic. I offer training to be better prepared for those scenarios.

Krav Maga · In studio
William was a great instructor. I had never done any kind of martial arts before and he was extremely helpful. He started with the most basic aspects (posture, stance, etc) and made sure I had those down before moving on to various punches and kicks. By the end of the lesson he was integrating more complicated combinations and increasing the pace, but always closely watched my form to ensure I hadn't forgotten what we'd started with. I highly recommend him to anyone seeking to increase or improve their martial arts abilities.

A wide body of knowledge at his disposal to share with his students. Excellent technique and endurance training. Lots of possibility for cross training and versatility. Also has a great passion for the philosophical side of the martial arts.
Very little that he wont touch on if you merely ask.
