Your lessons begin with warm-up exercises: musical aerobics that are fun to do, and help to develop amazing technical skills. The balance of your lesson is dedicated to learning the music you love and want to learn.

All programs include music book, learning material, instr. tracks, recordings, arrangements, YT videos, and everything you possibly need to become a professional singer, pianist and song-writer.

Step by step you will learn musical basics that create a beautiful sound as you sing or play piano, gain technique, personal confidence and eventually become the great singer or pianist you always wanted to be.

In Europe Alex worked as a musical director at the State University of Latvia, as a leading singer at the State Musical Theater and as a leading actor at the Riga Film Studios.

In 1985 Alex settled down in sunny Los Angeles, for many years he worked as a pianist, vocal coach and musical director at the LA county High-School of Arts and California State University of Los Angeles.

Alex has been a huge help to me in both learning to sing and being a better person. He really takes the time to get to know and understand each student's unique goals and needs and then makes a space for creativity and art to grow.
He is also a true expert in music and his years of experience and schooling really shines through. He can pick up any song or musical style immediately and work with you on the type of music you find interesting.
I came in as a beginner and now have an ability to sing and use my voice that I really didn't expect. Highly recommended for students of music of all levels.

Stephanie R.

Los Angeles, CA

About Stephanie

I have been singing and studying voice for over 20 years since I was a child! I hold a BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. I have been lucky enough to study with some of the top teachers in the country and now I bring the experience I have gained directly to you!
I am proud to share my student's vast array of musical successes. From being cast on GLEE to being accepted into prestigious performing arts academies to conquering the Karaoke scene, my students continue to motivate and inspire me.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music brings me immense joy, especially singing and I want
the same thing for you!
We start each lesson with proper breathing technique, the cornerstone of all vocals. We move on to vocal exercises to condition the voice. Then we work on the songs that you are eager to sing!

I will use a piano when doing vocal warm ups and conditioning exercises. Students that play other instruments and accompany themselves when performing (such as a guitar) are encouraged to bring that instrument to their lessons.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Studio has piano, area for parents to wait

*** Specialties ***
We will work on proper breath technique, vocal conditioning, vocal placement, identifying and expanding your range, note sustain and power and voice support for both spoken and singing voice. I will customize every lesson to suit your needs. With proper breathing and vocal technique under your belt you can sing any style of music you love, give a speech to a roomful of people and build up your confidence!

Stephanie is a wonderful teacher with the most positive attitude! I've been singing with her for over a year now, and I can really see the growth I've accomplished under her careful guidance . She has great understanding of all the different styles of music that I like to sing. Most importantly, she makes me feel at ease in her presence. I would highly recommend Stephanie as a vocal teacher for a person of any age.

My experience with Stephanie has been exceptionally awesome and inspiring over the last year. She is sensitive, super positive, and full of light and energy when it comes to guidance. I have never felt so confident as a singer, and though I still have a little bit to go before Broadway, I highly recommend her to anyone interested in rapidly developing or fine tuning their singing voice. She is also exceptionally talented as a singer herself and truly tailors sessions to really benefit your particular goals and vision for where you want to bloom as a singer.

Moa is a sweetheart that truly believes in her students and WANTS to see them go to that next level and wants them to succeed. She was more excited than I was when I hit a note that I couldn't previously. I signed up for singing but she also helped with my writing struggles. She's REAL and she's HONEST. Lessons with Moa are pretty much the highlight of my week. For once I feel like I have someone that truly believes in me. I can open up to her without feeling judged -- she's very relateable fun and energetic.

I worked with Samara on monologues for college auditions and for my showcase, we worked together for a little under (I think) three months. She's such a great teacher, definitely no complaints. I really loved working with her and she totally helped build my confidence when it came to performing in front of others—I'm (or was) ironically shy/weird about performing monologues and pieces in front of people and have been since I started doing theatre (10 years ago). Nonetheless, I got over that after Samara helped me with my acting and I don't get pre-performance anxiety/nerves anymore. I don't think I would've been able to pull off any of my monologues had it not been for her lessons, she actually helped me choose one of the audition monologues because I couldn't find a second one. In the whole monologue/character-building process, she took notes and asked me questions that really made me think about my character and their motives and actions and whatnot. She's also very encouraging and would commend me on anything I did well or improved on. Point is, Samara is a superb teacher and human!! I'd confidently recommend her classes to anyone who needs help with their acting. Five stars because she definitely was the best instructor ever!!

I can't really put into words how great (and funny) Samara is. I wasn't sure if learning how to act online was going to work for me, but I can safely say after 5 Skype sessions with Samara, they have been totally worth it and more! In our lessons, I have learned about how to approach and analyze a script, what to do in cold-readings, handling nerves, how to give a memorable audition, really nifty relaxation and concentration techniques, and so much more. I always value Samara's insights not only into the craft of acting but the business aspect of it as well. Basically, she's a rockstar and I just feel lucky I stumbled upon her lesson page. Without which, I don't know if I'd have the confidence to pursue my dream of becoming a professional actor!! Thanks a billion, Samara!

It has been such a privilege to work with Meredith Patterson. She has helped me prepare and put myself on tape for several auditions. Not only does she help you with technique, but she also dives into the acting and meaning behind everything you do. She inspires me to be the best that I can be! Her hard work and dedication has gotten her very far and she will motivate you to want the same for yourself.

"If you are looking for an individual who can provide objective yet compassionate guidance, strong active listening to aid in producing a plan specific to your individual needs, and a positive approach to help restore and maintain physical/emotional/spiritual balance in your life, Meredith is your answer. Being raised with an Ayurvedic and Eastern perspective I wasn't sure I would be able to find a coach that fit my needs or my palette. Meredith thankfully surprised me by providing flavorful recipes, and conversations that have peppered my spiritual consciousness with introspective questions, and honest and inspiring messaging that has allowed my mind to change the way I think about my body and life. I find I am approaching life in a much more balanced way. Life is a process and the reward of this coaching is being able to approach all situations with greater peace of mind and happiness"

Meredith Patterson truly is the quintessential healer in holistic health. She is the perfect blend of listener, provider, and problem solver. She provides superior tips, tricks, and advice for dealing with all sorts of every day problems with grace and poise. Everyone should experience living their best life, and with the help of Meredith I found that I am confidently taking proactive and positive steps in that direction. Accepting her selfless help is, in my opinion, one of the best things you can do for yourself. She truly is a gift.

Kids' Guitar Lessons: How Often Should My Child Practice?
Odds are that if your child is taking guitar lessons, your child chose to play the instrument. Unlike stringed instruments, piano, and classical instruments, kids usually choose to start playing guitar. Kids guitar lessons are a great start, especially when they are geared to your child’s age, but the only way your child will really progress with the guitar is through regular practice.
