Hi! We are Whittney Mikkél and Jaren Cloud, an artist duo and music production team known as Mikkel Cloud. We are passionate about music education and content creation! Coming from rich musical backgrounds and putting years of study and dedication into our craft, we are proud to deliver quality musical services to our students and clients. From audio production and composition for media projects to private music lessons for all ages, we are a dedicated partnership that offers a unique musical experience.
We both have Bachelor of Music degrees from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University Long Beach, and have formal training in classical and jazz studies as well as arranging and composition techniques. Individually, we each have 10+ years of teaching experience in a private setting and have coached choirs and band/jazz ensembles. Between the two of us, our complimentary skill sets allow us to cover a variety of musical concepts and instruments. Being artists and content creators, we also have a dedicated home studio space for recording, songwriting and production.
My daughter starts to learn piano at 4 years old. Whittney is her first piano teacher. Whitney has always been very patient and caring with her. She is very nice. My daughter loves to learn piano with Whitney.
I am so happy with the piano classes I have been taking with Whittney. I was a little hesitant to take piano classes at first because I felt like that is something you do when you're younger, and I am in my 30s. But Whittney is so patient, she made me feel so comfortable and at ease and is a EXCELLENT teacher for ALL ages! I can honestly say that I am developing skills that I didn’t know I had and am learning so much in her classes. It’s therapeutic and something that I look forward to each week! I highly recommend taking piano classes with her!
My son started piano lessons when he was only 3 years old...now 3 years later he’s reading music, knows the piano keys and is playing songs from memory. Whittney has always been very patient and caring with him. In times when life happens she’s always been very flexible and understanding with our schedules and is always so nice and friendly. We are very happy with our experience with Mikkel Cloud Music and my son will continue to be a student for years to come.
We both have our Bachelor of Music degrees from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University Long Beach and individually have 10+ years of experience teaching music in a private setting. Currently, Whittney teaches piano lessons to 35 students a week in Downey.
