Emma M. Cypress, CA

I offer preparation to the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) examinations.

About Emma

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 25 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 of 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 ...

We love Ms. Emma! My boys have been taking lessons with Ms. Emma for over a year. Ms. Emma is so patient, yet firm with them. She understands their very different personalities and adapts lessons to their differing personalities, styles, and needs. She appreciates their individuality and works from there. As a result, they have learned so much! Thank you Ms. Emma!

Excellent teacher for all age groups and skill levels.

As a senior, I started taking piano lessons about 1 year ago. Emma is very patient in her teaching. She gives encouragement and motivation when needed. Her musical knowledge and talent is amazing. I learned much more than I thought possible.

A great piano teacher is the key to success - at any age.

It is with great pleasure that I review my piano teacher of one year, Emma M. I took a few months lessons at age 7 and a few months in my teens and again in my 20s. After being separated from a piano for 30 years, I knew I had to get back to the music I always yearned to play. I searched TakeLessons.com for a piano teacher, and Emma M.'s resume caught my attention. Emma M. understands the adult learner. She helps me focus on what is important as an adult learning to play piano. Emma helps me to set goals, and she focuses my lessons on those goals. Emma M. is a professional educator who understands the human condition, and she puts her knowledge to practice. I am grateful to have found a knowledgeable, dedicated, encouraging, and motivating teacher in Emma M. I feel I have progressed, and I look forward to many more years of learning piano with Emma M.

We Love Mr. Joe!!!

Joe is very patient with my daughter. He truly wants her to learn and understand what she is learning and most of all to enjoy music. He goes at her pace while still encouraging her to set goals for herself. He will not move forward until she has mastered what she has learned.

Mr. Joe's passion for music reflects in his teaching!!

Music teacher that motivates his students.

My daughter has taken group and individual music lessons with Jose for three years. He is a teacher that meets students at their instructional level and motivates them to give their best effort in their learning. He also encourages my daughter with singing; he gives her vocal lessons in addition to guitar and piano. Jose also offers my daughter a safe learning environment. As a parent of a teenager, I greatly appreciate his patience with my daughter.
Ian B. La Mirada, CA

It's not as "black and white" as people think. I'll show you how to hit the right keys in the right order, and then I'll show you the nuances of becoming the "piano man."

About Ian

I am a pianist. I am also a keyboardist, programmer, and music producer. But the title I probably most identify with is "composer." I realized early on that my own passion for performing was fueled by my hunger to actually CREATE music. So I set out to learn from the masters. I won competitions and scholarships in high school, then double-majored in piano and composition at the University of Kansas where I obtained my bachelor's degree before going on to record, write, and produce rock & electronic dance music. I love being a CREATOR of music; and that love just extends quite naturally into the collaborative creative process we have come to know as "œteaching." There is no greater joy than creating music...except maybe seeing someone else I have trained and inspired create something ...

Athena M. Anaheim, CA

Experienced piano teacher of 15 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation in rhythm, reading, style and performance skills. I specialize in pop, gospel, jazz and classical, typically use methods books for beginners, and also use materials that experienced students already have. (No need to buy all new stuff if you like what you have.)

About Athena

About Me If you can recognize your favorite song when you hear it, you already have what it takes to be a great musician! MY PROMISE TO YOU: 1. Your lesson will always be geared toward what YOU want to learn, and if it seems like we are working on something that doesn't match that, I will always take the time to make clear why what we are doing will have you be able to play what you want. 2. You already have every skill you need to be a great performer, and my job is just to steer the ship in the right direction to have that happen. All I am ever doing in a lesson is making sure that we are moving you in the ultimate direction that you want to be going musically. 3. I will do everything I know how to do to make sure that what I have learned that will benefit you ...

Athena has been extremely helpful and understanding about the physical impediments regarding my lessons (arthritis, or something like it). She is also great at giving me tools to figure things out for myself. She encourages rather than discourages, and helps motivate you by making the things you are interested in a part of the program. So far I am very happy with her and feel like I might actually be able to make this happen.

Shannon K. Cerritos, CA

I hold a bachelor's of music degree in piano from the University of Southern California. I've been teaching for over 15 years and have been a member of the Music Teacher's Association of California for the same length of time. I teach songs, technique/scales, sight reading, theory, and improvisation. Students are encouraged to take part in 2 studio recitals a year as well as MTAC evaluations in March of each year. There are also special festivals and recitals within MTAC in which eligible students may play. I also work with adult students or those wishing to explore music in a more "free" and less structured environment.

About Shannon

I hold a master's in voice from CSUF and a double bachelor's in piano and voice from USC. With over 13 years of experience as a private voice and piano instructor I have had the privilege of helping many students achieve their musical goals. As a member of MTAC and NATS, I enter many students in Certificate of Merit, Student Evaluation Program, and other festivals. For pianists, I work on songs, scales, theory, ear training and sometimes improvisation. For singers, we work on a breath-based breathing technique and songs that reinforce good singing habits but that are also engaging for the singer. We also work on sight singing and theory.Though my training is mostly in classical music, I do work on other styles with my students. *** Lesson Details *** For pianists, I recommend the ...

Lessons with Shannon was probably the best choice I have ever made :) I had no prior vocal trainings and did not understand even the breathing techniques of singing. But she has been super patient with me and has helped me improve in a span of a month (of course practicing a lot on my own time too). Thanks Shannon!!!!

Rodrigo is the best teacher! He has a keen understandings of main concepts of music and showed me the proper postures and fingerings of the instrument. While he was teaching me how to play the instrument, he also introduced me a various genres and styles of music.He is very knowledgeable of music theory such as chord transpositions, terminology, as well as the musical notations. He also was willing to modify the lessons to meet my needs and abilities so that I can be successful. He truly is a multi-talented teacher and very very nice one, too. Most of all, it was so fun to take lessons from him.
