Jean D. Anaheim, CA

Piano, Guitar, Vocal Instructor – Current
Certified Music Teacher - Private studio and student's home instructor for elementary school aged children and special education adults. Advanced Music Theory Educator.

About Jean

If you or your child is interested in taking piano/keyboard, guitar, voice lessons, or if your child is in need of academic tutoring, I would really like to be your instructor! You have the option of my traveling to your home, or you are welcome to my home studio, conveniently located in Anaheim.

To tell you a little about myself, I was raised in a musical family introduced to music at a very young age. I took piano, organ, guitar, glockenspiel, and voice lessons for many years, and participated in music recitals.

I enjoyed singing, and with my music theory background, participated in vocal/piano recitals, involved myself in every school musical, joined every choir, participated in out-of-state voice sight reading competitions, and ultimately joined the New York All State Choir. ...

I really think Jean is a great and fun teacher.

I am extremely glad Jean is my guitar instructor because she helps me understand and learn music very fast. She makes it fun and understanding for me. Jean is also friendly and encouraging.

About Catherine

You can sing for life! I love to sing and I have been doing it all my life. I also love to share my enthusiasm, skills and knowledge with people. I started singing at a very young age and lived in a household where everyone sang. When I was fifteen, I got my first professional singing job and never looked back. I think it's my experience along with my education that is a great benefit to my students. I have sung in every vocal genre you can think of: pop, rock, jazz, blues, Broadway, opera, and choral music. I share this experience with my students, helping to guide them by providing them with insights on phrasing, interpretation, and stylistic nuances. I pair this experience with my knowledge and skills to help them learn correct and appropriate vocal support and techniques. ...

Piano · In studio
Our daughter took voice and piano lessons with Samara for about 6 months in San Diego. She had never had lessons before but within that short time fame our daughter learned and progressed at an unbelievable pace.

Samara is patient and extremely talented with her gifts as well as with children. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed all her lessons with Samara and we were definitely sad to see her go.

Samara is a fantastic teacher with an incredible level of patience and perfectly calm demeanor. My four year-old daughter enjoyed every lesson and couldn't wait to go back for more. Under Samara's tutelage, my daughter made incredible strides and developed a passion for piano.

I am grateful to Samara for teaching my daughter not only the fundamentals of piano, but how to enjoy the instrument while learning. I was certainly sad to have Samara leave San Diego, but that just means other students in Long Beach will stand to gain from Samara's talents.

We've been lucky to have Ms. Samara as our daughter's music teacher. In just 2 months, our daughter (12 years old) could sing pop songs beautifully and write the lyrics for her first song. We highly recommend Ms. Samara to anyone who is looking for a well-rounded music teacher who is professional, knowledgeable, patient, and loving. Thank you, Samara for being a great teacher to Sara for the past 2 months.

About Jill

What will music lessons do for you?

Problem solving and Memorization:

My students learn problem solving skills that they need to help them practice their instruments efficiently. Music helps students develop more areas of their brains and increases the capacity for better memory and problem solving. The skills they learn in their lessons can be applied to how they study for school and aid in memorization techniques. Music can also be similar to solving puzzles and putting it all together.

Can't read music yet?

Skills learned: I teach students how to read music and music theory as they learn their instruments.

Students learn how to perform for audiences and play for their own enjoyment. They learn how to work with other musicians and learn about stage presence for ...

My lesson with Matthew was great. Even though I have experience with music he was able to help me out with small habits that I needed help breaking. Great teacher really well versed in different styles of music as well as small techniques which will help me build and become a better piano player. All around great experience for my first time taking a piano lesson. Thanks Matt!!!

Drum · In studio
Carl’s gift as a teacher is both his patience and resourcefulness. He has a nurturing style of teaching and clearly cares about the progress of each of his students. Because of his years of performing as a professional, he draws on this knowledge and expertise. He brings a broad range of approaches to conveying fundamentals, technique and building on foundation principles of music. Carl taught my high school age son and I saw that he is willing to explore what works best for each of his students, who come with different learning styles and levels.

Carl is a highly dedicated, skilled Professional and a pleasure to work with. I have been involved in lessons with Carl for over 2 and a half years. I played drums in highschool but never truly learned the basics and Carl has given me the steps from basics to more advanced instruction and helped me succeed. I admire his patience and skills and work ethic.

I have been taking hand drum lessons (bongos and congas) from Carl for about 15 months. I find lessons with him enjoyable and relaxing, and I have learned a lot about technique and style from Carl. He is patient and gears his teaching to the interests and needs of his students. Regardless of age or gender, a student will feel at ease and confident with Carl as his/her drum instructor........Mel Roth, Irvine, CA.
