Hi! My name is Beckie and I have played music for all of my life. I play many different instruments such as the Trumpet, French horn and Piano.

I look forward to working with your or your child in helping to start or continue a musical instrument!

When I teach lessons, I like to go at the pace of the student. I am very patient but I expect the student to practice during the week. I will always work with a student as long as it takes to have them understand what is difficult for them musically. I use a lot of different books like Teaching little fingers to Play and Standard of Excellence. For Adults, I like the Big Beginners Piano book which has easy classical pieces to play! I teach from the rudimentary skills and build on the fundamentals of music. After 3 or 6 months, my students feel accomplished with what they have learned and excited for the next 3 to 6 months!

Originally from New York, I recently moved to Southern California during the summer of 2013 to pursue my teaching career. In 2011, I graduated cum laude with degrees in Music Education and Flute Performance from Manhattanville College, where I received several performance awards including the Elliot Magaziner Award, and the Michael L.

Previously in 2010, I also took advantage of a community service exchange program at Manhattanville to travel abroad to Kolkata, India, where I volunteered at a local orphanage.

Currently, I reside and teach in Los Angeles County. I teach general music and band in North Hollywood through an amazing program called Education Through Music - Los Angeles. I also run a middle school after-school band program in El Segundo, along with the beginning band at the high school. On top of this I teach woodwinds, and Orff instrumentarium, with the Youth Orchestra of Los Angeles (YOLA) at the Heart of Los Angeles (HOLA).

He is a well respected and accomplished musician both in Los Angeles and abroad, specializing on saxophones, flute and clarinet. Starting on piano at a very young age, he has been playing music all of his life. At the early age of 6, he received a standing ovation for is performance of "Hill Street Blues on piano! A few years later, he decided to pursue the saxophone, and not long after, he was studying the clarinet and flute as well. As his skill and talent progressed, the window of opportunities opened up.

While attending Hamilton High School's Academy of Music in Los Angeles, Bram started to get involved in numerous projects and bands. At the age of 16, he had the opportunity to travel to Japan to play with the Monterey All Star High School Jazz Band. He has received multiple awards and scholarships, from prestigious organizations such as the Thelonious Monk Institute and the George Eastman Foundation.

Bram graduated the Eastman School of Music in 2001, with a bachelor's degree in Jazz and Contemporary media. While in school, aside from gigging and touring with various bands, he was also teaching privately as a woodwind instructor. In addition to touring in various parts of the U.S., he has had the opportunity to see the world, working as a musician in show bands on cruise ships, such as Princess, Cunard, and Regent of the Seven Seas lines.

Currently based in the Los Angeles area, Bram keeps busy as a teacher and performer in various ensembles and projects.

Also, he performed with "The Hollabacks", a 7 piece rock band which won the Slurpee Battle of the Bands Competition 2010.

*** Lesson Details ***
If you are just getting started, or if you already have some experience playing, there is always room to grow, and it is NEVER too late to start! I like to get to know the student in the beginning, using various methods that I used for my own development. Once I get to know the student's individual needs, I customize their lessons in order to accommodate their goals. I am a patient teacher, but I expect results.

I like to keep a fun and positive environment during my lessons. Practicing is really up to the student. I don't mind if the student wants to come in and play every week without practice, but we all know, that if someone wants to learn and develop on an instrument, practice is necessary.

I am able to teach Saxophone, Flute, and Clarinet. As I mentioned before, I like to customize my lessons toward the individual student's needs, so I do not go by any standard method. I draw from materials that I've used in my own educational process, and I am always keeping current with modern trends in teaching. With my expertise in teaching, you will develop fundamental skills on your instrument, as well as general music skills, including music theory, sight reading, ear training, and improvisation. I am open to teaching all genres of music, whether it be jazz, blues, rock, hip-hop, pop, or classical. I am open and flexible.

Whether you want to start a new instrument from the beginning, or get better so you can win auditions/competitions, get into the school/regional band, or maybe you are just doing this for fun, I can definitely help you succeed!!!

Thomas F. Los Angeles, CA

Subjects Taught

Bass Guitar, Flute, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Recording, Music Theory, Oboe, Piano, Saxophone, Singing, Songwriting

About Me

From a young age, I have been deeply involved in the musical community. I began studying piano when I was three, and throughout my education, I’ve learned from such accomplished instructors as Belle Mehus and Christopher Taylor. After receiving a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance from The University of Mary in North Dakota, I continue to study, teach, perform, and compose. I’ve also studied guitar and bass for nearly twenty years.  I love playing and teaching these instruments because of the strong correlations between the way they are tuned and played and the way western music theory works—as well as the pure enjoyment that comes from them!  Additionally, I have twenty years of education in oboe and other woodwind instruments. I was principle oboist for two orchestras and reached the third round of auditions for 3rd oboe in The Minnesota Orchestra in 2006. Lastly, I have been an active vocalist since being a boy soprano in Menotti's Amahl and the Night Visitors and Andrew Lloyd Weber's Requiem.

I genuinely enjoy all aspects and styles of music—whether I’m studying a Chopin Etude, playing Charles Mingus at a jazz gig, writing and performing with my rock band, or composing hip hop tracks for a short film. I am an easygoing teacher who gets results, and I would love to welcome more people to my diverse group of students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very pleased with my teaching method because I help my students achieve great progress, as well as immense enjoyment. I have a fairly standard routine of teaching technique, theory, and musicality, but I keep a comfortable, laid-back environment. The result is solid, consistent advancement that might come from a stricter method of teaching, with a lesson experience that is more fun and loose.

I am also a highly versatile instructor. While there are certain things that I believe are always necessary when learning a musical instrument, I incorporate them into each student's distinct capabilities and preferences. In short, I can instill the same musical values in every student, whether they’re studying J.S. Bach, The Rolling Stones, or Rihanna.

I take my students' goals and musical preferences very seriously and strive to make every student happy. I am always open to any ideas a student might have, and I am available to answer questions at all times.

 

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide literature and some accessories. Student needs to have instrument, other accessories, and a music stand.

Cindy K. Mission Hills, CA

Subjects Taught

Clarinet, Flute, Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Saxophone, Singing, Violin

About Me

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 Gretel 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!

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are designed to bring a maximum level of enjoyment while giving a strong musical theory foundation. Being a classroom teacher for over 30 years, I understand what a student goes through regarding homework during a week's time. I always take that into consideration when making assignments. I find out what the student's musical likes are and use those in selecting songs to work on with them.I use different curriculum, depending on the needs of the student and the instrument being taught. With the wealth of my experience I can teach and guide the student through any performance and musical interest they may have and bridge the gap between genre's that so many are unable to do.

I teach beginning and intermediate voice, flute, guitar, sax and clarinet. I am able to teach up to the advanced level for violin and piano. I enjoy working with all levels of students, from young children through adults.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room, room for parents to wait.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They must have their own instrument. If they are taking piano, I am able to teach them on a keyboard that has at least 4 octaves. I have had great success with working with keyboards, especially with younger students. Students purchase their own materials. I will give you the names of the books and locations where you can buy them.

*** Specialties ***
I am from the old school of thought and teach the basics with a great deal of theory thrown in. My students that have gone on to major in music in college have done very well because of the foundation I have given them.
