Jean D.

Anaheim, CA

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.

After graduating from school, I focused on teaching children how to read sheet music and play the piano and guitar within parochial schools, public elementary schools, private in-home lessons, and instructed adults for the Continuing Education Music Programs located within Rockland County, New York and Orange County, California.

Regarding my experience as an academic tutor, I currently tutor students through the No Child Left Behind Program, private tutoring for Special Education students, and home schooled my child through the Anaheim Independent Study Program from 9th grade through her successful 12th grade graduation. I am very familiar with elementary and high school grade multiple subjects, the online technology for education, and the study/assignment criteria. This is a wonderful tool to enhance students Grade Average, SAT and Exit Exam Scores.

In understanding the value of tutoring a child that is exhibiting difficulty in a subject matter, the evidence shows a significant increase in student aptitude when placed with a tutor.

I look forward to meeting you, and getting you started on your way to a lifetime of much fulfillment.

*** Lesson Details ***
The goal of music/academic education is to empower the student to experience learning as a source of personal enrichment, a vehicle for the constructive expression of human emotions, and as a unique intellectual discipline. This goal will be attained through a structured, sequential program of study:

- Motivate all students to engage in the learning process designed individually through text or on-line.
- An ability to establish and maintain high standards for student performance.
- A demonstration of deep knowledge of the subject taught and the use of appropriate instructional strategies that promote student understanding.
- An ability to plan and implement a sequence of appropriate instructional activities.
- An ability to evaluate and assess student achievement and areas of improvement.
- Communicate effectively with students and parents presenting goals clearly.

Each student interested in expanding their knowledge and abilities in voice, piano/keyboard or guitar will be introduced to reading music and asked to practice the lesson plan each week at home. With practice, you will see your abilities grow stronger and stronger, and you will be able to play and sing along to music with ease.

We will be working from lesson books specifically designed for you, and each weekly lesson will be documented in a notebook as a daily practice reference guide.

Through active involvement, you will build a foundation for a lifetime of participation and enjoyment in music, and at the same time have fun while learning.

Music and Academic Education help develop self confidence, and within a very short time you will be amazed at your own abilities!

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. She makes me feel comfortable playing around her because she does not judge me and gives me feedback to help fix my mistakes. I enjoy every session with her because Jean is a great person.

Eulis K.

San Diego, CA

About Eulis

---------- Now teaching in Orange County AND San Diego! ---------

Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile. Allow me to tell you a bit about myself:
I have been performing as a musician for about 20 years and acting since I was a small boy. I started my musical education as a woodwind player and settled in to the wonderful world of singing over time. Music has opened me up to so many opportunities from touring the world to performing in marvelous concert halls and working with some of today's most revered artists, as well as giving me the opportunity to expand my performance through act
ing in various plays, musicals, television, and film.

Performing has been my salvation. It has been a best friend and constant source of joy, and I share this gift with others so that it might offer them the same. After 10 years of teaching, I have new experiences to draw from and share with my students. I've spent my last 6 years performing with Disney in Anaheim and this past year touring Japan in their Tokyo Disney cast, and I must say that my experiences have given "performance" a new depth. I'm excited to dive back into lessons with fresh ideas that will mesh well with my tried and tested teaching techniques.

Originally from Los Angeles, I now reside in Orange County and I'm especially proud to be expanding my studio to San Diego as well! I am so excited to share my experiences with the people of this beautiful and inspiring town. If you're interested in learning more about my lesson style, feel free to contact me and I'd be happy to talk with you about a plan to help you reach your goals!

My Teaching Style

Over the past several years I have focused much of my personal growth on developing my ears' ability to pick out and pinpoint vocal “placement”, resonance, subtleties of timbre, changes in pitch, breath support, air speed and flow, pronunciation and diction, and in general, the way in which all of these work together to create style. From these assessments, I work with the student’s particular needs to address each area individually and based on the learning style of each person.
To illustrate to the student their method as I see and hear it, as well as ways in which they might make changes to facilitate the ease of singing --be they changes of tessitura (range), length of phrase, tone color, the release of unnecessary tension etc.-- I make use of vocalise (vocal exercises), simile and metaphor, examples from recorded performances, demonstration, self assessment, and techniques to “trick” the voice into acting in a different way, in addition to videos, diagrams, and texts on anatomy and physiology. I feel that all of these tools provide a unique and personalized learning experience for each student.

Eulis is an amazing teacher.

He is vibrant, encouraging, and gives great examples (and often humorous) examples to help better understand working the voice.

In just my very first lesson, he pinpointed huge holes in my singing that I never even noticed before in recordings of myself, and attuned each exercise specific to my needs.

I'm looking forward to improving with him!
(and he definitely deserves all five stars)

Mariano L.

Buena Park, CA

About Mariano

My experience as a performer and teacher ranges from early music to today's rock and pop, including various percussion instruments from around the world. When studying for my bachelors and masters degrees in music, I did course work in music recording, jazz studies, and music history. In addition, I incorporate my knowledge of development, physics, and other sciences into my instruction. I can discuss playing music with beginners to professionals as we pursue opportunities in the music industry and education to develop functional musicians with creative outlets as students are able to explore
any area or level of music. Some of my students have gone onto college music programs and high school programs such as OCHSA while others are enjoying playing music with friends. The goal is to take a student's excitement for music and percussion in a direction that will feedback into more learning and a drive to explore more styles of music.

Percussion · In home
Mariano was an amazing percussion and drum set teacher. His lessons were engaging and productive, and he was always able to communicate an idea or musical concept in a way that I was able to understand and connect with. After about 2 years of lessons I was accepted into the Orange County School of the Arts for percussion and I owe my success to the lessons I took with Mariano. I continued lessening throughout high school and my skill level contined to grow. What I loved about Mariano's teaching was his unique ability to take very simple exercises and make them more difficult and therefore much more beneficial. Along with stressing the importance of basic technique, he would constantly inteoduce me to new things - Afro beats, traditional grip, Latin beats, new ways to sight read, and 4 mallet marimba technique. I would highly suggest taking lessons with Mariano if you are looking for a fun, encouraging teacher who has lots of experience with a variety of percussion performance!

Drum · In studio
Evan is not only an incredible drummer, but also a great teacher! As a professional drummer and drum instructor myself, I choose very closely who I go to for my personal drum lessons. Evan is one of the only teachers I trust to give instruction and guidance in the areas I truly need the help. This takes a ton of professional experience, as well as skill. He has a way of breaking simple as well as extremely complicated subjects, exercises, rhythms, styles -you name it- down in a way to help me to accomplish things I never thought I could do on the drums. With me, Evan has a way of uncovering and exposing my bad habits, but then fixing them, thus making me a better player. This is always done in a friendly encouraging way. In my opinion Evan Stone is not just a teacher, but a guru of the drums! The proof is not only in his playing but also in his teaching!

Evan is absolutely nothing but awesome. I had the great pleasure of studying with Evan throughout high school and feel very fortunate to had spent the time with him not only behind the drum kit but letting him dig into my inner being finding out what it was I was looking for to get me to be where I wanted to be expressing myself musically at a young age. His fine astute in nuances is what separates him from a musical and personal standpoint compared to others. There's a certain demeanor I learned from studying with Evan, am now twenty nine and feel very fortunate to still be enjoying music and freely expressing myself today from a foundation heavily weighted on what I learned from Evan. I also had the opportunity to attend the PIT program at Musicians Institute after high school and was able to test out of six months of the certificate program due largely to what I learned from Evan. I would certainly not be surprised to find myself coming back to Evan for lessons, I refresh back to a few things frequently from Evan that seem to keep me very grounded and comfortable whether i'm playing soft music or playing more aggressively with rock music still today and some things I know are so ingrained I can't even dig them out. It was truly an honor studying with Evan.
