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. I compose and orchestrate for theater (Glendale Center Theater, Vanguard University Theater Department), film/tv, orchestra (L.A. Jewish Symphony, TCOTW, BIOLA University) and album projects (Anna Nalick, Oodle's World Productions).
Singing credits include High School Musical 1, Hairspray The Movie, High School Musical 3, Chris Kolfer's new movie Struck by Lightning, Atlanta Aquarium Dolphin Show recording, Boston Public, Who Wants to Be A Millionaire ad (New Wave Ent.), and The Drew Carey Show. I'm also a professional piano player for American Idol finalist Stevie Scott, various other bands, Mastro's restaurants, and local churches.
Currently producing my second children's music album for Oodles World, Inc.

Hello, my name is Cindy and I am a vocal and instrumental instructor. I received my BA and MAT degrees from Pepperdine University. I have taught privately for over 25 years in the San Fernando Valley, along with Pasadena and Simi Valley areas. During college I performed in several operas including The Magic Flute and Hansel and Gretal with the Burbank Symphony Orchestra. After college, I was a member of Musical Americans, a select touring group from Southern California under the direction of K. Gene Simmonds that toured South America and Japan. I also served as a minister of music at a local church for several years.
I began playing the piano at the age of 7. My mother and sister were taking lessons and, when they had finished practicing I would go into the piano and play what they had just played. My mother figured that I was the one with the talent so I got the lessons. When I was 9, I became interested in the violin. Back in those days, it was required for you to take private lessons if you were going to be in the school orchestra. I started lessons on the violin while continuing lessons on the piano. I began taking voice lessons while in Jr. High and for a while, I took lessons on all three. I was also very involved with my church music department, which was very large and well known in Southern California. During college, I had the opportunity to participate in The Living Christmas Tree . This was a great experience, one I will never forget. I not only sang in the tree but was able to play in the orchestra for a couple of years as well.
Being a classroom teacher for over 30 years, I have had the experience of bringing the joy of music to hundreds of students. I put a strong focus on musical theory so that my students understand not only how to play or sing, but understand the WHY of different musical concepts. Presently I have students attending CSUN majoring in music. I have a love for music that has been with me since the age of 7, when I started taking my first piano lessons. I took private lessons on piano, violin and voice till I graduated from high school, continuing while I earned my BA and MAT degrees. I have experience with students of all ages, ranging from the young kindergarten student to the adult student. I believes that there is a hidden talent in everyone and that if there is a desire to learn, I can teach them!
Piano, Music Theory
I love teaching, I love music, and I love people! I say that first because my credentials would be pretty meaningless if I wasn’t a nice guy who loves what he does.
With that in mind, here is my teaching philosophy, including what you can expect from me as a teacher and as a person:
I believe that every child is precious (every adult too, for that matter!) and deserves to be nurtured and encouraged in a fun and loving environment. First and foremost, that is what I wish to provide for your son or daughter (or you!). Because of that, you can expect that I will come to lessons already loving my students, ready to give them a safe environment in which to grow both musically and personally.
I believe in the power of music to reach deep into the human personality and express the otherwise inexpressible (from joy to grief, from hope to despair, from the complexity of relationships to the simplest of pleasures). On the other hand, music can just be really fun! Because of that, you can expect that I will foster an appreciation for music both as a powerful art form and as playful entertainment.
I believe in self-confidence and self-motivation to enable the human spirit to reach its full potential. Because of that, you can expect that I will endeavor to inspire in my students a sense of self-esteem, a drive to learn, and a love of life in general.
I believe in discipline as vital not only to musical progress, but to any kind of progress in life. Because of that, you can expect that I will encourage consistent and regular practice, always keeping in mind that the study of music is meant to be fun!
I consider myself a servant of my students, desiring only to bring out the best in them. Therefore, I will neither push them too hard nor be too lenient, but do my part to help them achieve the goals we establish for them together as student, parent (if applicable), and teacher.
In short: “I will do my best ... at what I do best ... to bring out the best ... in you or your child.”
It’s a familiar story: one day when I was ten, my cousin came over and played the first few notes of F r Elise. From then on, I was hooked!
1. I studied piano for five years with a local teacher, then went on to the New England Conservatory Preparatory School, where I studied under Jonathan Bass. I also took a strong interest in music theory and composition, earning the Department Award for both subjects.
2. Upon graduation, I moved to Los Angeles, where I studied composition at USC’s Thornton School of Music. After doing very well in the program for two years, I decided to pursue psychology in order to understand the human personality better (with a special interest in child development).
3. I graduated with a B.A. in Psychology (3.9 major GPA), then decided to pursue my Master of Music in Choral Conducting at Azusa Pacific University, where I am currently studying voice with L.A. Opera’s David Kress and conducting with Dr. David Hughes.
In addition to my extensive study of the piano, I have had many other valuable experiences as a musician and teacher, including but not limited to the following:
1. I have participated in numerous choirs over the years, performing in such venues as St. Peter’s in Rome and St. Mark’s in Venice, where I performed high mass with the APU Chamber Singers. With the USC Concert Choir I have sung with the Los Angeles Philharmonic under world renowned conductor Helmut Rilling in a performance of Bach’s masterpiece St. Matthew Passion and have shared the stage with Barbra Streisand at the 2001 Emmy Awards.
2. As a soloist, I have performed in events around southern California with the professional caroling company Dickens and Company and have sung the bass solos in the Christmas portion of Handel’s Messiah under the direction of Brian Trevor.
3. As a church musician, I have served as assistant music director at Palo Verde Avenue Christian Church and worship leader at Silverlake Community Church. I have also led worship for ministries associated with The Church On The Way.
4. I have been teaching for over eight years, having worked with every age level from preschool to college and beyond, in one-on-one as well as classroom settings. I have taught not only music, but also Math, English, SAT Prep, and college-level music theory. My private music students range from 4 to 90 years of age, and I also teach for a performing arts academy in Pasadena.
All this to say: I am a very well-rounded musician and teacher, experienced in many aspects of musical training and performance.
Well, that’s me in a nutshell. I hope we can learn together, and I look forward to meeting you!
Music is my passion, and I love to share it with others! I have been a musician almost my entire life. I began taking piano lessons in grade school and voice lessons in middle school. I continued to study throughout high school and eventually college. I graduated in music from The Ohio State University. I went on to teach music in the public schools as well as private piano and voice lessons. When not teaching, I spend most of my time performing by acting, singing, dancing and modeling. Some past performances include Company; Jekyll and Hyde; The Wizard of Oz; Meet Me In St. Louis; Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; and Grease. I recently relocated to Los Angeles and am excited to share my passion for music with you!
"Steven is very professional and extremely helpful. He always has a smile on and is serious about helping you phrase the music. I would highly recommend him to anyone."
"It's been really exciting so far! Jordan has been so helpful, so knowledgeable. I could not have found a better instructor and I'm getting better and better every day."
"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
