I have succesfully worked with all levels, but currently, I am only taking advanced students preparing for college auditions and competitions as my private students. However, I teach a host of classes for all levels (beginning-advanced) at Saddleback College. All of these classes are available to younger, school-aged students, as well. They are completely free for high-school students. There is a process of applying to these - you need to fill out and sign some forms and create a student profile.
