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.

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

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've been a piano student of Anne Delaney for 4 months. I am very pleased with her style of teaching. She incorporates much more into the lessons besides the basics of reading and playing music. Anne really works on technique, dynamics, tempo, mood and imagery, and the historical background behind the music I am learning. She is patient and warm, and I always enjoy our lessons.

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.

    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

    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

    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!"

    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.
