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!).
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! ...
I teach how to read, but also how to improvise! like to play guitar along with my students to help them groove!
I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments. *** Lesson Details *** I am very enthusiastic and can teach students how to read. If they do not want to read music, they can learn to play by ear. I can also show them where to put their fingers. During piano lessons, I often accompany students on guitar and suggest a scale for improvisation, so they can play the blues. During drum lessons, I often play bass so they can learn to groove. *** Travel Equipment *** They should have
Piano will be taught based on YOU! I do not have a series of books that I try to make sure everyone learns from. I will tailor these lessons toward the goals and desires of the student. For beginners, I often do not start with reading notes, unless that is what is desired. I find there is much more excitement in playing the piano right away, and learning to use ones ear. For intermediate and beyond we will learn techniques, including both exercises and ideas, that will take you as a player far beyond your current level.
While most 5 year olds were singing along to silly songs, I was entranced by the tribal drumming in the Michael Jackson's "Will you be there". When most Junior High student were listening to, well, whatever made them "cool", I was thinking of what John Lennon meant in his lyrics for "Strawberry Fields Forever." I have always had a deep passion for music that goes beyond the surface. I connect with the very soul of music. Writing my first song at the age of 7, the creative fire began to use music to express what no other form of communication could. Struggling with the limitations of my vocal abilities at the age of 16, I decided to intensify my study of the voice, taking hundreds of private lessons in such techniques as Bel Canto Vocal Technique, Speech Level Singing(TM), Progressive ...
I will work with your goals and am especially patient with beginners. I follow industry standard Alfreds, Bastien and John Thompson books.
Individualized training to best suit the needs, skill level and goals of each student in all genres of music. I tailor each lesson to meet my student's music aspirations. I'm creative, patient and caring. I'm a Berklee College of Music Graduate in Vocal Performance. I've coached voice students, taught contemporary music theory lessons and conducted performance labs in all genres of music, all ages, privately and in a group setting for the past eight years. I've established my own private vocal studio and taught in-home lessons in Sydney Australia before moving to Los Angeles. Aside from being a teacher, I'm also a session singer and have performed with various general business bands in contemporary Jazz R&B Pop ensembles in Boston, New York, Washington DC, Los Angeles, Sydney and ...
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!
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, but helps build ...
Ryan has been playing piano since the age of 4, where is was discovered he has perfect pitch. In addition to all styles/levels, be it pop, classical, fusion, and even non-western melodies and music, Ryan can teach students to learn a reference pitch to aid in relative/perfect pitch efforts.
