I can't say enough about my experience with Ken. He is very intuitive. His lessons are balence between exercises and therory. I have alway found myself mentally stimulated, with plenty of work for my fingers. He is very energetic and reaches out between lessons to give you more music to play with. His warm and friendly personality make the lessons fly by. He also willing to work through tought topics without cutting the lesson short (schedule permitting ). I really appreciate his effort into his students. He has also been pretty flexible with my shedule. As an adult these are not the piano lessons I hated as a child. Lol

I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.

Mathman tutored my son in Geometry. He is a fantastic tutor! He was extremely patient, supportive, great teaching abilities, very personable, cool to work with, organized....he is fabulous! In addition, he communicated with my son's teacher on a regular basis, attended my son's IEP and he advocated for enhanced accommodations for my son. We are going to miss our weekly meetings. Thank you Mathman!

It would have been nice to have more information about the actual teacher who would be coming to the house. I took it on blind faith that he was a good teacher and a normal person. There was no resume or bio or picture or anything. Turns out, Adam seems great (2 lessons so far). But more info would have been helpful.

Loving my lessons with Ethan. I'm new to guitar, and he's great at starting at the very beginning. He's patient and has a great laugh.

I have recently had the pleasure of being directed by Edward in two stage productions. He is dedicated, outrageously funny, and knows what he wants to see in the actors with whom he works. I have had opportunities to work with him in both group settings, as well as one on one. As an acting coach, he brings unique choices to the table. He challenges one to think about what one “should” do versus what one “could” do and to think outside the box. I feel confident in saying that I would work with Edward again in the future and respect his direction.

I hired Paula to teach a swing dance lesson during my boyfriend's 30th birthday party and the whole process could not have been smoother. Paula was super flexible, easy to book with and had great follow through. She arrived perfectly on time for the lesson and was a true delight. My boyfriend has taken tons of swing dancing classes over the years and he said that she was the best teacher he's ever had. She spent time helping every couple in our group and her experience really showed. I cannot possibly recommend her more highly!

Melissa is a fantastic vocal instructor and is also wonderful at helping young actors and singers prepare for auditions of various kinds. She is enthusiastic and dedicated to her students' success, and she draws on a wealth of experience as a performer, herself. I can't recommend her strongly enough as an acting and singing teacher!

Both of my children have taken classes through the Lead Tree! They began with audition workshops and moved onto more intense character development with Michael. I would recommend this program to everyone! Michael not only provides invaluable audition techniques and tools, but he also builds confidence. Regardless of whether or not either of my children continue with acting, we will continue with these classes because they are teaching my kids to be confident, composed public speakers. And that is a tool that every child needs.

About

We have intervals in our lives and intervals of music. With each step, be patient with yourself. Each person has his/her own gifts yet to be discovered. You may begin with piano and find, with much excitement, you can write songs, or would you love to sing in musicals, opera, or choral groups or sing leads in theatre productions? Perhaps playing the violin in an orchestra will pluck your heart strings? How about guitar, strumming in a band, singing and accompanying for a church choir or just want to play great songs. Whatever the instrument or style (classical, sacred, jazz, musical theatre and popular), let us explore together what your talents can add to your life and those around your world. At Interval, our professional coach has an extensive background in music and drama. A member of the Music Teacher Association of California, National Association of Composers USA, Screen Actors Guild (SAG-AFTRA), our intuitive, talented coach is a published songwriter and a recording artist. She will guide you along your new adventure, help unfold your goals, and make your hopes a reality -- one interval at a time. Our music and drama school is a peaceful environment, where you can focus, be listened to, embraced and accepted for wherever you are along your journey. You are welcome to make your next step into "Interval!"

As both a professional actor and casting director I have coached actors and real people for live and on-camera high performance communication. Whether you are an actor or public speaker seeking more confidence, ease, and feel more grounded in your performance contact me for a quote.

Because not only have I been in the music business my whole life, but I am also a Medical Assistant. This gives me an advantage over most of my competition. I am not only teaching from a classical technique, but I am teaching my students from the inside out, helping them to understand their instrument fully.

I will take you through your pieces and show you how to make them pop. If you have a monologue you've been working on and it just doesn't seem to be getting to that next step, let's take a look together. Perhaps, with a second pair of eyes (mine), we can take it to that next step. Same goes for any piece you're working on. Give me a call and let's talk.
