I highly recommend GreenTree and Sidney!! Coordinating piano lessons and other artistic endeavors with Sidney was an effortlesss and pleasant task. He made it happen and initiated some remarkable lessons. GreenTree is on speed dial for our next visit to OC.
A mom recently recommended Coastal Music Studios - she said her boys loved it. I was doubtful as to whether our shy middle school son would feel comfortable enough to learn to sing in a group (He has a history of speech delay and some difficulty with articulation). Pam, teacher/owner, noticed he was new and asked the kids to say hello. The kids were friendly, excited to sing and enthusiastic. I was completely amazed watching my son during the first choir practice. He looked confident and happy. Afterwards, our son (who has a learning disability) said it was the first time he felt like his brain knew exactly what was being asked of him, and that he had so much respect for the teacher since she was kind AND a good leader (i.e. not one negative word/threat said to a group of ~ fifty 2nd-8th graders). Needless to say, our son immediately started weekly voice/piano lessons. I notice he is more willing to do his homework, and is more excited about life/learning overall. Also, the songs that Pam chooses for the choir are very uplifting (non-religious). My husband and I are thrilled to have found this studio - I highly recommend Coastal Music Studios.
Omar is very professional and patient. My daughter is enjoying her cello lessons.
The slow progression at school was the reason why I decided to put may daughter up with a private teacher, whom Linda seems to be the right fit. My daughter was never corrected for her fingering while playing the cello at school, until Linda did so. It took my daughter 6 months just to play 1 piece of music at school, let alone reading the music sheet for the cello comfortably. And she was the only cello student at school too! Linda is not only very knowledgeable musically, but also very talented as she plays many different instruments. Overall, very productive 1st class with Linda.
Our son has been taking Cello lessons from Arlette for 1 1/2 years now and has improved tremendously. He is 14 years old and still looks forward to going to lessons every week. Arlette is really good at finding a student's strengths/likes to keep their interest, as well as finding the areas they need to work on. Highly recommended.
I am so glad to have found Jessica. She is patient, observant, helpful, and so encouraging. I was unsure how online cello lessons would work, but this is the ideal format for me. Jessica is able to observe form and offer gentle suggestions as well as instruction on sound. I highly recommend Jessica and am sure that with her help, even an old, slow returning cellist will soon be enjoying playing complex music. Finally, Jessica has been very flexible with my crazy schedule lately. An awesome person and great instructor.
The two years that my daughter has been taking piano lessons with Elite Musique piano teacher, Kelly, has been nothing but a positive experience. My daughter's favorite aspect is preparing and performing for the company-organized open mic nights. As a parent, I have been impressed with Kelly's knowledge and professionalism, her genuine attention to my daughter's advancement in piano (and voice) skills, and the performing and testing opportunities.
My son can't wait for the next semester of his alternative string group (ASG) to start up again! Jacob has taught him so much about being creative and passionate about the violin and music, which has been a liberating complement to years of school orchestra. SPLA is a unique program with the most positive and inspiring teachers possible- so thankful to be a part of it!
I can't tell you how lucky we are that we found Trevor. We just moved to Manhattan Beach and was looking for a cello tutor for my daughter, Courtney. Originally she wanted a female tutor..so we tried them all. She didn't like any of them. We found Trevor and decided to give it a try. At first, she was very nervous about having a male tutor, but she loved his technique of teaching from the start. He was so patient and knowledgeable. I saw such a improvement to my daughter's playing...I'm amazed. Hire him...He's a gold mine!!
Felix has been teaching my son now for 6 months and "wow" what a difference. My son is now included in the orchestra section that performs at the theatre plays. ( only expeienced and well taught students get this opportunity. Felix has not only given my son the proper instruction on how to play a cello, but he had to re teach him some previously taught (incorrectly taught) finger positions . That was not a easy task because my son has autism. Felix is a professional and patient and I do recommned him highly. Check him out on u tube , amazing!!! Signed, 1 proud Mom
I’m an undergraduate student at USC and I’ve been playing cello for more than five years, although I’ve taken lessons for less than two. I’ve worked with Juliette for about seven months, and it has been a worthwhile learning experience. I recommend Juliette as a cello instructor to anyone committed to studying the cello. Juliette works with me for one hour per week, and each lesson, we work on scales, exercises, and pieces. She varies the amount of time we spend on each depending on what she believes I need attention that week. The exercises emphasized strength and flexibility in each hand as well as bow control, shifting, and thumb position. She is very patient with my progress (and the occasional lack of it); there have been times when I struggled to develop the correct technique, rhythm, or concept for a particular piece, passage, or exercise, and she didn’t get frustrated as some other teachers do. When we work on pieces, Juliette provides many valuable insights regarding note articulation, phrasing, bowing, and more. She has helped me on reading rhythms, subdividing, training my ears, and learning music theory. Juliette is a talented performing cellist, so she is busy with her own practicing and performances, but she is flexible and accommodating. Whenever she needs to travel for a performance, she lets me know well ahead of time so we can plan around her schedule as well as mine. There have been many weeks when something unexpected came up in my schedule, and she was able to reschedule our lesson. Her flexibility helps me keep on schedule with my goals in music as well as focus on my other responsibilities when they are overwhelming. Juliette is always on time for my lessons and hasn’t canceled any without notifying me days in advance. Her prices are also reasonable given her level of education. During our lessons, Juliette often reminds me that, “You are your best teacher” because she only sees me once per week, whereas I am with myself whenever I practice. However, given the opportunity to work with an instructor, Juliette is an excellent choice.
A SENSE OF CARING. AND THE FACT THAT I AM 71 AND SHE FELT THAT TEACHING ME THE CELLO WOULD BE A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE FOR ME.
Very great teacher, so sweet!! He's teaching my son piano and my son has so much fun at their lessons.
I’d highly recommend Thomas. He plays beautifully, explains things well, and gives homework that is both manageable and enjoyable.

I have more than 20 years teaching piano to children. My multiple teaching skill ,patient and creative teaching way were proved the good result from the student's strong music foundation musicality and becoming a music lover.
I teach piano, voice, violin and cello lessons in a relaxed but professional atmosphere. My home studio is warm and inviting; you must love little dogs! They love kids and people in general! I teach kids of all ages, teens and adults how to read treble and bass clef, play piano, sing, play drum rhythms, or play the violin or cello. Music is healing and fun! It's a great tool to build a child's self- esteem. I have been teaching all styles of piano and voice for 40 years, including traditional music reading, rhythms, fingering for piano, and techniques for great position, pitch and tone on stringed instruments like violin and cello.
I offer private cello lessons to students of all ages and levels including beginners. I have a degree in music from The Conservatory of Music at the University of the Pacific, as well as training in the Suzuki method. I am a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas as well as Music Teachers Association of California and am proud to offer the certificate of merit program in my studio. I strongly believe that a music education is extremely valuable for a child's' academic, social and emotional well-being. I also believe in teaching in a supportive and encouraging manner.
I have studied with not only some of the greats of the time performance wise but also who well known for passing on great teaching skills. Such as the great Karen Tuttle
