Madlen offers private cello lessons in your Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley home or her studio for beginner through advanced for children and adults. Currently Madlen performs with Redlands Symphony,Santa Barbara Symphony, Santa Barbara Opera San Bernardino Symphony, Bakersfield Symphony, Santa Monica Symphony and Beverly Hills Symphony Orchestras. Also she teach cello and orchestra anssembles at “ Lark” Conservatory in Glendale.
I have been teaching in Los Angeles for the past 16 years with students ranging in ages from 6 – 65. I am proud to say that several of my students have ended up going to music schools such as Berklee School of Music and Musicians Institute College of Contemporary Music. I strongly feel that you are only going to get as good as you can by practicing and having fun with the instrument. I can show you the proper techniques and teach you the “fast track” skills to get there...but ultimately it's all up to you and your passion. There's nothing better than playing drums but you have to practice in order to play them
Since I'm focusing on voice lessons, I work with all students on being aware of their breathing. Having the right breathing patterns (since there are many varieties) is what can give you the edge and really bring out the best voice inside of you. Honestly, I mostly will give students recent pop songs that are good for the voice unless one is a stickler for classical songs, in which I sometimes use the 24 Italian Art Songs and Arias. I usually compose basic songs for vocalists, tuning in to what needs the most exercise in the voice.
During the past 10 years, I have taught students ranging from the earliest beginners to very advanced college flute majors. I have varied pedagogical experiences from working with young children with autism and dyslexia to teaching college flute majors. This diverse range of experience allows me to tailor my teaching to meet each individual student's goals. I find all levels of students to be equally challenging and rewarding! Previous private flute teaching experiences of mine include teaching at the Musical Achievement Program in the Toledo public schools, teaching secondary flute lessons at Bowling Green State University (BGSU), CalArts, and Oberlin, and substitute teaching flute majors at BGSU.
My approach to teaching is very simple. I want my students to be themselves, strive for excellence, become well-rounded drummers, and make drumming a lifelong passion. I have been teaching privately for almost 3 years, and proudly teach all ages and skill levels from beginning to advanced. Teachers can have a profound impact on their student’s lives. My job is to motivate and inspire students to pursue their goals. I take my work very seriously, and I care about all of my students. I want my students to teach me as much as I teach them. In the fall of 2014, I founded a drumming program with Family Quarters, Inc. that teaches group percussion classes to Autistic adults. Also during the fall of 2014, I conducted a semester of group percussion classes to elementary school students at Buker Elementary School in Hamilton, MA. I taught privately for over 2 years at The Drum Shop North Shore.

Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.
Review by Paula Chacon
I've always said, "It's all about the teacher." That skillful, effective teacher who can reach that child and ignite her passion, is truly a gift. Ric does that for my daughter. As a former music teacher myself, the most challenging thing in working with children is how to build their fundamental musical skills while letting them have fun and be expressive. The teacher must create a safe, supportive environment, and Ric does that. Ric immediately focuses on fundamentals of tone and technique, giving my daughter succinct instruction on how to improve, thus she can sense the improvement immediately. Ric seems extremely easy going; even when lighting a fire under her sometimes under-achieving butt, Ric never criticizes, judges or blames. He works with my child, understanding her, helping her problem solve, and even giving her the quick answer sometimes so she can move quickly and stay motivated. Ric balances fundamentals with fun and expressiveness, so my child feels as though she can 'play' and they truly make music in every lesson. I am thankful we found a good match with Ric.

Our kids love Mr. Lynwood. Mr. Lynwood is very patient and skillful teaching our kids both music theory and guitar/piano. He keeps them engaged and motivated during their lessons and we are seeing -or rather hearing- fast improvement in the kids' dexterity playing their respective instruments. We would recommend this good natured instructor to anybody.

Martina has been teaching our daughter violin since early 2015. Every time our daughter has a lesson she comes away in such a great mood - she really enjoys her lessons! Martina is positive and encouraging and adjusts her teaching to help our daughter learn the best way for her learning needs. We were curious about how online lessons would work, and it turns out that they work really well. The 1:1 time and ability to teach from a distance make it work just as well as in person. We've had moves and schedule changes and Martina has been very flexible for us - which made such a big difference in making violin lessons accessible. Absolutely recommend her!
Review by Tuvana
He is incredibly patient and really customizes his teaching style to the child. Both of my children are learning piano with him; they have learned so much and really enjoy the lessons. In fact, my daughter asked to learn another instrument (guitar) with him and is making great progress with that, too.
Review by Jeremy
Dr. Nedra C is incredible. She knows her craft in and out, it truly shows in her teaching. As well, she cares a great deal about the student, and preps plenty of material outside of the lesson for those that she teaches. I've had many different music teachers and am aware who's talented and cares, and who isn't. Dr. Nedra C is true phenomenal, and any student would be lucky to have her.
Review by Natalie Kretcher
I really like her. And as an adult student, a good teacher who keeps the pace up but still keeps it reasonable in terms of difficulty is really hard to find. She does a great job of explaining little detail things in terms I (as a musically challenged human) can understand. I'm having a blast! 10/10 would recommend!
Review by Susan
My daughter is extremely happy and comfortable with Rachel, and looks forward to her piano lessons every week. She is a very kind and patient teacher, always using positive reenforcement with my daughter, which makes all the difference in the world to children. We definitely are looking forward to continued piano lessons with her. So glad we found her.

Darrell is A-Maz-Ing! He demands results from his students and therefore results come quickly. The time he spends teaching is intense and packed with great instruction. He is a tough teacher but offers lots of valuable instruction that is applicable for music as well as life in general. I highly recommend Darrell if you are ready for results!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
