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.

Ben's a great, knowledgable and fun vocal coach that really caters to your needs, and then broadens your potential to things you never thought you could do. As a 21 year old male trying to be a pop/rock singer, in just a few short lessons he helped my range, breath support and overall tone improve drastically. Highly recommended if you're looking for good results quickly in improving your singing voice.

I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.

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.

Leah Diamond is a loving and dedicated mentor. Her lessons are highly personalized and leave me with no doubts that she is giving me her full attention. I always feel safe to be emotionally vulnerable, a feeling that I have come to learn is a key part of growing as an actor. Although she focuses a lot on the more abstract concepts of becoming a good actor, Leah is also very knowledgeable when it comes to the concrete aspects of the business. She aided me in building a better resume and helped me connect to networks where I can market myself in order to work and gain experience. She is extremely adept at fostering growth through personal exploration, creativity, and imagination. I am a better and more confident performer thanks to Leah!

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!

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.

About

I love singing because it allows me to express myself in all the genres of music out there. I'll help you find your voice in the genre that fits you best.

About

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.

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.
