Glynis D.

Long Beach, CA

I have been playing piano since age 3 and teaching for 10 years. I believe it is very important to understand the theory that goes along with what you are playing, so I include some theory in all of my lessons. I love teaching piano and I hope to share the joy of music with others.

About Glynis

Glynis has been reading music since before she knew how to read words. Her mother started teaching her piano lessons at age 3, and she started taking voice lessons at age 7. She learned from an early age to practice every day. She has taught all levels and ages of piano and voice for many years. Glynis specializes in jazz voice, but has a very strong classical and musical theatre background. She is an arranger, composer, educator, and singer. She received her AA in Professional Music from SWCC, school for music vocations, then got her BA in Jazz Studies, Vocal Performance at CSU Sacramento. Sh
e is currently working on her Masters in Jazz Studies, Vocal Performance at the Bob Cole Conservatory inside of CSU Long Beach. While studying she is the Graduate Assistant for Christine Guter, and directs the 2nd vocal jazz ensemble, Jazz and Tonic, at the school.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching philosophy is to have a safe, positive, fun, and effective learning environment for all of my students. I believe it is important to be a well rounded musician, therefore I love my students to have a solid understanding of what they are doing. I strongly encourage all of my students to learn theory along with piano or voice, so they understand what they are doing. Each student is unique, therefore each student has a different lesson plan. I do expect that my students will practice during the week in order to grow, since this helps them reach their goals. I do let students pick some of their own repertoire, since it is very important for them to be motivated during the week. I can teach from early Baroque music to modern day and everything in between. Music is expression, therefore I believe it is very important for my students to love what they are working on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in my apartment with a keyboard.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring a keyboard, but it would be easier if they had one.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz voice, with a strong background in classical and musical theatre. I also specialize in piano, music theory, songwriting and arranging.

Glynis is young, hip and knowledgeable. We discussed the areas I want her to work on with my Daughter and she went right to work. I'm looking forward to seeing her grow under Glynis' tutelage.

Glynis teaches both voice and piano to my 12-year-old son. She makes both subjects fun and finds a wonderful blend of theory (which we believe is very important) and practical application. She is helping him build strong technique, and helping him navigate the tough transition years for boys who sing as their voices change. We love her and have already successfully recommended her to friends, who are also really enjoying her teaching!

Glynis is a wonderful piano teacher! Our son has been taking lessons with her for about 5 months, and he has learned so much in such a short period of time. She makes the lessons fun, is engaging and patient, and able to keep a 7 year old focused, which is a feat in itself! After a bad experience trying group lessons, our son loves piano and looks forward to his lesson with Glynis each week.

Emma M.

Cypress, CA

Welcome to my Piano studio.
I am enthusiastic, caring, classically trained piano teacher with over 30 years of experience who believes that all students can thrive in a learning environment that is stimulating, comforting and appropriate to their abilities. I am looking forward to build a successful, long lasting teacher student relationship with you.

About Emma

I am a piano teacher, classically trained. I started my music education at the age of 7, at the Odessa College of Music in Ukraine. At age 16 I was accepted to the highly prestigious Odessa University of Music, where later I received my BA degree in Piano Pedagogy and Performance, Summa Cum Laude. I then decided to further my education and take a 2 year Piano Performance course at the Odessa Conservatory. For over 30 years thereafter, I am teaching students of all ages. I look to develop problem solving, multitasking and other intangible life skills for my younger students through the power o
f music. For my adult students, I look to reduce stress and keep their brains working like new. Regardless of age, I work very hard to improve all of my student's memory, brain function, coordination and most importantly teach them how to simply have fun!
I believe that all students can thrive in a learning environment that is stimulating, comforting and appropriate to their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are designed based on famous methods of teaching to meet the individual needs and desires of each student.
I am always very patient and will take it as slow as each of my students needs to make sure that he or she understands everything of what is being presented.
I am growing up with the students, building a proper relationship with them and helping them develop life skills through music. I hope for all my students that they will indeed develop skills and attributes through the music experience they have with me.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright Piano, Baby Grand Kawaii for Recitals

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student must provide piano in their home for piano lessons. Must have parking available

*** Specialties ***
I am using Alfred's Music for Little Mozarts, Alfred Piano, Bastien Piano, Piano Adventures by Nancy and Randall Faber, Thompson Modern course for beginners. I provide my student with a variety of music styles: classical, jazz, musicals/movie. Also, I introduce them to piano duets. These duets are very useful as supplementary material in a piano program, musically rewarding, and very motivational. I offer preparation to the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) examinations.

Michael is a great instructor, hands down. He's only been working with my son for a short time and he is able to get him focused and learning new things each lesson. He is very flexible with his schedule and if we are ever to miss because he's on tour, he always makes up the lesson and figures out a time that works for us. I'm grateful that we have found him and look forward to hearing them play each week when he comes to the house. Oh, and did I mention that my son is only 7? Michael's youngest student!

Lynda A.

Long Beach, CA

Piano/Keyboard

Piano is a gateway instrument. Learning piano can open the door to learning other instruments with greater ease. The frequency range of the piano covers most instruments and continues to be an important first instrument for many.

Beginning piano students start with the Alfred Basic Piano series which is grouped into 6 levels. Adult piano students follow a similar path using the Alfred method in 3 levels. Songs and/or books from the Faber method are often used or substituted. Both methods are widely used and provide a steady increase in difficulty, incorporating a variety of styles of music.

At the same time, students learn music theory through supplemental Alfred theory books. More intermediate students use the Julie Johnson method of music theory used by music teachers the world over for its clear, concise, and repetitive approach to learning the basic skills. Advanced beginning students start learning all the major and minor scales, harmonized scales in ...
