Christoffer S. North Hollywood, CA

Piano lessons range to fit the style of music you want to learn! We can look at classical music, rock music, folk music, or whatever else you'd like. I will teach you about music theory and proper piano technique to make sure you turn out to be a great performer.

About Christoffer

I have an MFA in Music Composition and Piano Performance from California Institute of the Arts and a BA in Music Composition from UC Santa Barbara.

I have been playing the piano since the age of 7 and started composing as a teenager. I began teaching music in high school and quickly learned that providing musical knowledge is just as important as acquiring the skills it takes to be a musician. Studying with me will help you become a well-rounded musician with the ability to play the type of music you want to play.

Constantly composing, film scoring, and performing, I'm a very active musician that works with classical musicians, rock musicians, and everything in between. I teach a variety of instruments and will cater lessons to your styles and interests. I'm also a ...

Chris is a great teacher. I worked with him at CalArts. He has a highly diverse range of skills as an instrumentalist and composer. He works in various musical styles fluently (from film scoring, songwriting, instrumental and vocal writing, to electronic music). A friendly and pleasant teacher to work with—he is very good at meeting the student at his/her level and helping them with their own individual artistic goals/needs. I highly recommend him as a teacher to anyone wanting to develop their musical skills.

Chris knows his stuff about music for sure. He is a very nice and friendly guy, and chill. He works around your schedule and musical wants. I decided to try and learn the accordion, and started with absolutely no experience. Within 2 months (7 lessons or so) I was crankin' that thing like a pro.

Classical, jazz, contemporary, pop, rock, R&B, folk, current, American Song Book, and of course...the Beatles!

About Robin

I've been a songwriter since I was a teenager. I have been teaching music for almost as long. As a teacher, my joy comes from seeing a student realize they have grown, or discover something they now can do that they could not do before, and the confidence gained through their efforts with my guidance. I carry around the Beatles Pocket Reference Guide at all times and preach the gospel of their songwriting legacy to my students when necessary and whenever possible!! I equally love the mystery of the musical ear, and music theory, and how it all works together...I love purple. For all those who know me, I always match in whatever color spectrum I decide for that day, and I always have been that way. I believe in Angels on Earth, I searched for the Lochness Monster (No luck!!) I love ...

About Jonathan

Piano, singing, and songwriting began for me when I discovered really awesome piano music such as with bands like Queen, Yes, and ELP. After high school, I studied classical music composition at Wheaton College's Conservatory of Music receiving my Bachelors in Music Composition with a focus in piano. My professional experience includes singing on film/TV productions such as High School Musical, Hairspray, and Struck By Lightning.

Jonathan is super patient and kind. But also gives good feedback that has helped me improve. Along with vocal warm ups and singing songs we work on ear training and sight reading. His approach is gentle and non judgmental. Great teacher for both kids and kids at heart. I am truly pleased and would highly recommend him.

About Julie

Trained from age five to approach the piano with excitement and love, I have studied with piano professors from all over the world at the Chopin Institute in Warsaw, Poland.

I love children and am patient, creative and intuitive. If your child is wiling to put in at least twenty minutes of practicing time, 5 -6 days a week, I will be patient, fun and excited every time they come in for a lesson - always tailoring their musical experience to their individual needs.

I also now have experience teaching several adult students at different beginner and intermediate levels. I'd love for you to come in to my convenient Los Feliz studio after work for a lesson, you can walk to dinner or cafe, or a stroll in Griffith and do some of, what I call 'learning away from the ...

Julie was filling in while the primary teacher was on vacation for several weeks. Julie was pleasant and was great with my daughter, Norah, 6 years old. The lessons were where we left off with the primary teacher and Julie did a great job with it.

I've been taking piano lessons with Julie for a year. We play a variety of songs and exercises each week. It's helped me go from not knowing the first thing about piano to being able to read sheet music and play many songs. The lessons are always challenge me and make me want to learn more. Plus Julie's just a really nice person. I would absolutely recommend Julie as a piano teacher - she is the best!

I have been working with Julie for over a year now and I have nothing but great things to say about her. She is a fantastic teacher who has helped me expand my playing beyond what I thought possible. She really understands my playing goals and always gives me pieces of music that I enjoy but that continually push me forward. I feel very lucky to have her as a instructor.

Someone once called leaning how to play the piano, "taming the black beast!". Although we certainly don't battle to the death with a piano, we do work on coordination, rhythm, and a complete understanding of music....all very important and challenging things to master. I'm a full believer in making the process of learning each of these techniques fun and rewarding!

About Shannon

Hi! My name is Shannon and I am very excited to be apart of the Takelesson's team! I think I came out of the womb singing a song! My love of music and eventually performing, led me to receive my bachelor's in Voice Performance from Missouri Southern State University in my hometown of Joplin, Missouri. While getting my degree, I realized I wasn't quite ready to embark in the professional performing world without a little more education. I went on to receive my Masters Degree in Musical Theater from The Boston Conservatory. I moved to LA in the fall of 2009 and fell in love with the weather and the people.

Music is such an important part of my life and I love sharing my knowledge and passion with other people! Not only is learning about music a fun experience, ...

Shannon makes learning, growing and performing lots of fun

I see Shannon primarily for voice lessons, but she really helps me prepare for every aspect of auditioning. From vocal technique, to song selection, cuttings for auditions, getting out of my head and into the character, Shannon has been my guide every step of the way, and all with enthusiasm, laughter, encouragement, and wisdom. She's helped with my acting on songs, but she's also helped me to choose and prepare monologues and sides. She challenges me in every lesson so I'm always improving, and she's guided my first steps in this business. I am so grateful to have found her! Whether you want to pursue acting and singing as a career or a hobby, I highly recommend Shannon. She really makes it fun!

Peter has been very thorough in his teachings with our children. He has given them well rounded/comprehensive lessons that has included music theory, rhythm and just a general understanding of the musicality needed to perform a song.

Being that I am a musician myself, that studied at the University of North Texas, I can be very critical of most musicians but especially teachers that work with my kids. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone that is looking for a teacher that teaches more than just notes on a page.

Contagious Energy, Passion, Fun, and Creativity.

Peter has taught our oldest son for about 2 years and our younger for half a year. Both have enjoyed being able to quickly play recognizable tunes, and the oldest has progressed to playing more difficult and even beautiful pieces.

I appreciate Peter's flexibility to let the students find their style and begin developing their own preferences by letting them choose among numerous potential recital pieces. It builds their confidence and makes them feel like partners in the experience--the very opposite of the stereotypical stern piano teacher.

He also has a great sense of humor. So in any session with my kids I overhear him striking a nice balance between focus and firmness where needed, yet it's frequently punctuated with encouraging high fives and good-natured laughter. He sometimes bets them on whether they can meet a stretch goal and he seems perfectly happy to fork over the 50 cents (or whatever) when they can reach it.

I especially appreciate his preserving some time for composition to allow the kids to cultivate any creative impulses and more deeply understand the structure of music. My youngest broke into a frenzy of writing several tunes after hearing about Peter working on a composition with his older brother. I can't imagine this would have even occurred to him if Peter didn't create this encouraging environment to not just play music, but dare to write it. He sets a great example here by including his own creative works in the recitals, exemplifying both creativity and his strong playing.

Another benefit is the structure he brings with the master classes, and the informal recitals, building up to the more formal ones. The master class he patterned after a collegiate setting, an innovative adaptation to younger students that makes our guys feel like they're part of the greater music scene, where they can critique each other as peers with other kids under Peter's guidance. This gives them something to aim for with enough pacing yet informality that it doesn't overwhelm them, but keeps them progressing. This variety also creates different settings for our boys to learn and perform beyond the formal lessons at home. The master class has not only created a very stimulating learning environment, but has exposed them to a warm community of fellow students whom they sometimes meet separately, such as to prepare duets.

Recently he recognized our oldest son with a certificate for most improved, an example of the more formal type of acknowledgement that helps keep the kids motivated to keep trying. But what motivates them the most is Peter's enthusiastic and contagious energy and love of music. It's clearly his life's work and his creativity inspires.

Beware parents: If you have an interest or an inkling to play yourself, Peter's enthusiasm and encouragement may very well win you over to start--or get back into it. And you'll be glad you did. He's allowed me to resume piano by accompanying my son on duets. And he's indulged my many questions on how to play and lead my sons more effectively. As a result, I've experienced the greatest joy making music with my sons!

Thank you, Peter!

Great Teacher; Truly Inspiring

Peter has been teaching piano to my daughter for the past 8 months and Voice/Guitar to my son for over a year. He has a wonderful ability to engage my children while teaching them the fundamentals of music. We have had other music teachers but it wasn't until we hired Peter that my kids actually started looking forward to their lessons and practicing at home. I so appreciate all the effort he puts into his work, the weekly lessons and periodic recitals and master classes. He does a great job because he cares about music, his students, and sharing his passion.
