About Lauren

Hello! I am a nurturing voice coach with many years experience working with all styles of music.

I received a Bachelor's of Music in Vocal Performance at NYU at the Steinhardt School. I went on to receive a Master's in Vocal Arts at the Thornton School of Music at University of Southern California where I also taught private and group voice.

Lauren is inspirational!

I began studying with Lauren about five years ago. Her instruction in musical theatre, opera, and pop has been some of the best that I have ever received. In fact, thanks to her coaching, I was able to book a role in my first Equity musical, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, at the Pantages Theatre in LA. She has a passion for music, is an excellent accompanist, and knows how to work with developing singers. Her engaging, encouraging direction continues to inspire me to be the best vocalist I can be!

Lauren is an amazing teacher!

Lauren is an incredible teacher! I came to her without much experience in vocal technique, and she has helped me improve so much. She has taught me many useful techniques to stay on pitch even when the notes are really high, to have good breath support, and to project my voice more.

Lauren is a very supportive teacher. She likes to establish friendships with her students, and she truly cares about what's going on in their lives.

I've taken lessons with Lauren for a little over 3 years now because I've had such a great experience with her. I'd recommend her to anybody! She has helped me get into my school's advanced choir, prepare solo songs, and just practice my singing technique in general.

Also, scheduling voice lessons with Lauren is very convenient. We never have problems finding a common time. I love the studio where she teaches too! It's really cool. I have nothing but positive feedback about my time with her, and I plan to continue lessons with her!

Joan has been teaching our 5 year old daughter in our home and has incredible patience and finds ways to make it fun for her as well as educational. She also was flexible when we needed to change our lesson times from a weekday to a weekend morning time slot and was always on time and very professional. I would highly recommend her as a teacher for a young beginner!

Joan is very patient as an instructor. I appreciate the feedback she has given me on nuances in my body posture, my grip on the sticks, and seating position to help me be comfortable during the lessons. I began drum lessons with her early in my pregnancy and she has been very accommodating to my busy and hectic schedule.
Bryan L. Playa del Rey, CA

About Bryan

Bryan is a lifelong student trained in both Contemporary and Classical methodology. Bryan's extensive education paired with his passion for music make him the perfect teacher for any student. Bryan's love for music started at a young age. He began taking private guitar lessons at the age of 10 learning the basics. This knowledge has served as the basis for all of his musical training as it provided a strong backbone of fundamental skills to build upon. Graduating from the University of Oregon in 2005, he practiced and perfected the classical approach to music. Bryan's education continued at the Musicians Institute based in the music capital of the world, Los Angeles. Here he diversified his music skills with vigorous training in the contemporary study of music. This contrast allows Bryan ...

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!

Travis H. Los Angeles, CA

About Travis

I grew up in Los Angeles and went on to attend the University of Redlands .While at University, I played in the University Orchestra and a variety of other ensembles. In addition to violin, I also studied jazz guitar, so classical music is definitely not the only musical style I am familiar with. I am lucky enough to study with Jeanne Skrocki, who is currently the Concertmaster of the Redlands Symphony Orchestra and the Assistant Concertmaster of the Pacific Symphony. My musical experience with violin is not confined to classical! I also have experience with other styles, including Irish folk music and bluegrass. While classical is my bread and butter, I can take a more rounded approach in terms of exposure to musical styles if desired. *** Lesson Details *** My approach to ...

The best music teacher!!

My 11-year-old son has been taking violin lessons with Travis for a couple months now and loves it! Travis always has a smile on his face, comes on time, and is professional. My son had zero experience with this instrument before; so it was important for me to find a teacher who is patient, and Travis definitely is. He has a good sense for when his students are ready for a little push or need some extra attention in some spots. I highly recommend him!
Carmen S. Malibu, CA

About Carmen

Carmen has been teaching music for 10 years to children and adults, from age 4 to 50. She is able to teach many genres of music to all levels of musicianship, whether beginner or advanced, whether they want to learn Mozart or Coldplay, Aretha Franklin or Joni Mitchell . Her style of teaching utilizes the classical approach of theory and sight reading, but MOST IMPORTANTLY allows the student to explore the instrument freely while also achieving good musicianship. Having fun while honing the craft is the way to an enduring love of playing and is a principle she always uses in her lessons. Carmen has a special gift with very young children; she is able to keep children interested, engaged, inspired and challenged. She has a patience with children that is extraordinary because she ...

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.
