Clarissa N. Los Angeles, CA

I teach at ALL Levels....I take my students from the very first note all the way until college auditions (if that's where they're heading!).

About Clarissa

I studied piano in Germany with Lola Poirier (a student of the famous Alfred Cortot) for 11 years, then with Phillip Evans in New York (professor at the Manhattan School of Music) and finally with world-renowned concert pianist Eugene Liszt at Carnegie-Mellon University, where I received my Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance with a Minor in Child Pedagogy.

For the past twenty eight years I have been teaching students of all levels and ages, incorporating some of my former teachers' methods with my own teaching style. I am passionate about awakening a hunger in each of my students for bringing and keeping music in their lives forever. I don't look at my students as children who play an instrument, but as young artists on the road to self-discovery and musical fulfillment! ...

About Stephen

Hello! My name is Stephen, and I'm a pianist, singer, conductor, and teacher. My goal is to help my students use music to learn more about themselves and create the lives they want to live. Music is a language, and it connects people with each other and with themselves. I give my students the tools to feel confident about themselves and to build friendships through the common language of music.

I have taught music for thirteen years, and I am an active professional performer in voice, piano, and conducting. As a pianist, I have won many awards from regional competitions and performed to warm applause in California and Hawaii. As a singer, I have performed at several major venues, including Walt Disney Concert Hall, Hollywood Bowl, Lincoln Center, and Carnegie Hall. As a ...

About LeAnna

Hi! My name is LeAnna and I am a performing artist and teacher in Los Angeles. I am 29 years old, live in Los Angeles, CA and graduated from San Francisco State University where I received my BA in Classical Music, my BA in Dance, with a focus in choreography, and a minor in Multi-Cultural Theatre. I work as an actor, singer, dancer, choreographer, Zumba instructor and teacher. I love the work that I do and teaching the performing arts is a great joy in my life.
So, just a little bit about me- My father was a saxophone jazz-playing musician who made music an important part of my life. I began piano when I was 7 years old and basically self-taught until I reached the university where I had some formal training. I fell into singing via theatre in high school and picked up trombone my ...

I am a composer and LeAnna has performed some of my vocal music. Her last performances of my work was a soprano duet at two very large grand ballroom. Both times people rose to their feet and a number of people were moved to tears. It was a great success!

LeAnna has a very beautiful, pure tone in her singing.

LeAnna is definitely a good teacher to start with!

I have taken singing class with LeAnna for about two months and it was definitely a positive experience. LeAnna is a good teacher to start with and I've learnt lot from her.

LeAnna is a very easy-going and encouraging instructor. She would try to find something good in me every time and appreaciate it. She would also find something I was doing wrong and point it out directly instead of like it vanish in the appreaciation. So I feel energetic and know what to improve at the same time. Moreover, LeAnna's teaching environment is quite comfortable. It is a clean, tidy, and quiet room. I wouldn't feel nervous there. And, there is plenty space where I could move within and sing quite comfortable.

An an instructor, LeAnna has good exercises which would build my technique little by little. She would offer a group of exercises for a specific training area and they are not difficult and seem easy to do. I would not feel practicing those exercises sucking too much of my energy. But, when I came back to sing, I would feel that without noticing, I could done what I couldn't done before, which was pretty amazing.

LeAnna is also reliable and knowledgeable of the industry. She is not only an instructor but also the singer/dancer/actor who do shows. She would tell me how this industry is like, what and how to prepare for the audition, and what details I should focus on (i.e. Don't change schedule after you have been confirmed with the stage manager) and what aspect I don't have to worry (i.e. I could go to another audition if you are wating for another result; just tell them you are waiting.) This helped me a lot to know what the custom is like in this area.

I'm a 55 yr old female that hasn't taken voice lessons in the last 20+ years. From that time until recently I would just do karaoke off and on. I started taking lessons with Tanisha about seven months ago. She is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to my voice. Initially I just wanted to learn how to use my "alto" voice more effectively. I avoided singing soprano songs because it was very uncomfortable and it didn't sound right to me. But to my surprise Tanisha convinced me that I am in deed a first soprano. She started working with me on my singing with much attention on my upper range. Thanks to Tanisha, for the first time in my life I have started feeling like a real singer! She has truly taken me places vocally that I could have only dreamed of going. Even when I sing lower it sounds tons better. I practice consistently because I'm so excited about all of the progress I have made in just a seven month period. And I am just blown away that I have those high notes now! When it comes to the voice Tanisha is definitely a miracle worker! On top of that she has this bubbly personality and from the day that I met her I felt like I've been knowing her for years. She's like a new best friend!

For the past 6 months I have taken voice lessons with Tanisha. She has a very warm personality that makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. She is passionate about teaching and also tailors the lessons to who you are as an individual so that she can help to extract the very best out of you as a student. She is encouraging and never judgmental and meets you right where you are at. Most of all, she has abounding patience. I have seen an overall improvement in my vocal ability and can now sing in a range that I thought was impossible for me.

Tanisha is the perfect coach and teacher. She provides both services at such a high level, I definitely would not be where I am today without her guidance.

through the few short weeks I have worked with her, I have improved in my live performances as well as my mental aspects of my singing. the homework she gave during the week has literally changed my confidence and performance. I have never had so many compliments after a concert. It is both uplifting and affirming the hard work I've put into my vocals!! I only see a bright future ahead with Tanisha and myself.

Patient and Caring

Our experience with Brian as piano teacher to our two children has been incredible. He has brought each of them along at their own pace and they have learned to play very well. Brian has always been patient and kind.
This has been particularly important with our (now) 8 year old son who is autistic. He can get easily distracted, frustrated, bored, or just plain ornery and uncooperative. Mr. Brian has always exhibited great patience toward him, taking breaks when necessary and generally bringing our son along at his own pace--and our son has shown remarkable progress.
We highly recommend Brian as a piano teacher.

Great All-Around

Brian is an awesome music teacher. He is kind, patient, knowledgeable about music theory and a pleasure to be around. He teaches me piano, and is good about introducing new pieces to me, as well as teaching me the more complex nuances within each piece.

He is also great with kids! I have 2 little ones, and whenever they happen to be around for my lesson time, Brian keeps them engaged with music. Whether it's trying to play something themselves on the piano, accompanying them on the guitar, or bringing fun music-related props, Brian makes it fun

I highly recommend Brian as a piano teacher, and he is also a very talented guitarist! 5*!
Owen C. Los Angeles, CA

Piano is a great instrument to start with. It teaches you all the fundamental things that you need to know about how music works. I can teach students beginning piano, whether it be as their first instrument or a new adventure!

About Owen

Thank you for taking the time to look at my profile!

I love to share my knowledge of music with other people. At UCLA I taught and performed for children of all ages in Los Angeles and around the world.

Teaching is important to me because I feel that music is all about connecting with others. It is also about so many other things: self expression, communication, and lifelong learning. Also, it's just plain fun. I want my students to enjoy learning as much as they do playing!

In our lessons we'll focus on learning how to play the music that you want to learn! And along the way we'll work on fundamentals that will allow you to branch out into other genres, too.

Music is my favorite thing in the world, and I want it to be yours too! It can change your life!
