Michael L. Los Angeles, CA

About Michael

I was inspired by drums at a very young age. My intro was playing along to the stereo hitting the floor with a unmatched pair of sticks. At age 12 I received a drumset and was able emulate some rock drumming style pretty fast. My learning hit a plateau soon after tho. My discipline for drum books and practice was very poor in the beginning. Attending Musicians Institute in 1987 was the starting point of my commitment to myself to improve and be the best player i can be. I Graduated from MI with Honors and started playing with bands and continued to practice many hours a day. By 1994 I was teaching 30 -60 students a week. I have maintained that schedule for 15 years. By 1997 I was playing live 2- 4 night a week every week for many years. I have played Thousands of shows in my

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 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.
Nils B. Los Angeles, CA

About Nils

Whether you're a beginner or more advanced, age 5 or 50, in my experience, with even a little bit of practice each day anyone can learn to play. Maybe your goal is to simply learn to play your favorite songs or maybe you want to learn to write your own music, improvise, or perform live. Like all good things in life, there are no shortcuts, and learning the guitar takes time and effort, but in return you get the ability to express yourself through music, which is one of the most rewarding skills anyone could ever learn, at any age and in any situation. My main focus is on helping you reach the point where you are actually playing music, instead of endlessly going over exercises or theory. I want you to be able to play music you would enjoy listening to, because this is when you ...

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.

Choosing the best position to play a particular chord during a song depends on its proximity to other chords in the song and the sound you want to achieve. When you are making chord changes, it always helps to choose the f
