Our Teachers

We love teaching! Our teachers are all experienced performers and educators. All teachers have many years of teaching and performing experience, with most being graduates of, and having master/Ph.D./D.M.A. degrees, from prestigious institutions such as California State University, Fullerton, California State University of Long Beach, UCLA, University of Nevada Las Vegas, Trinity College London (England), BAKIP Linz (Austria), Victoria University (New Zealand).

Many of our teachers have gone on performance tours of the US and Europe and have over 25 years of professional performance and teaching experience. In addition to their teaching credentials, our teachers have warm personalities, are extremely friendly and strive to get to know each student and their parent on a personal level.
