Jessie M.

Pasadena, CA

About Jessie

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degree at
the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it!

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life then they WILL achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

Jessie is great! This is my first time taking vocal lessons and wasn't sure what to expect. I'm enjoying the experience so far. She makes me feel comfortable and learning a lot from warm ups we practice. Her knowledge with singing and music is inspiring and she's informative, down to earth, and has a great personality. I know I will reach my goals and can see myself develop a nice voice that will sound great with my lessons with Jessie. She is the kind of instructor I was looking for and look forward to the results.

About Phoebe

EDUCATION

HOWARD UNIVERSITY— Washington, DC
BA in Music Therapy, with Minors in Bassoon & Piano

UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX— Pasadena, CA
Master of Business Administration (MBA)

I absolutely love teaching! I've been teaching music for over 25 years!
That's all I've ever known. Coming from a family of educators and musicians of two generations we wanted to do something for the community, so I co-founded Piano Play Music Systems,Inc. (an award winning inclusive private & group music program for children voted” The Best Piano School for Kids in LA”) 400+ student aged 19 months -
adults. I further developed an advanced group piano pedagogy series of method books by editing, creating and developing characters, lyrics for songs within the books to enhance more enthusiasm for learning with older children.
As a trained music therapist, I also co-founded Keylife Foundation,(a non-profit organization that offers services for special needs children, primarily in the autism spectrum). Developed a keyboard program and curriculum with the Braille Institute of Los Angeles and other special needs children focusing on mainstreaming them into regular classes. Music is such a gift to give to others and its an art that is non-judgemental. Its all about you. That's what I want to bring the student--to love and enjoy. If its a recital you want, you can have that too!

I am a current member Music Teachers Assn. of California which can give my students a platform to perform and participate in competitions in the future as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe lessons should have balance. I am going to give my very best to you in our time together, so let's rock it. I want you to get it and hopefully love it. We know you have a life, but put some time into your exercises and music and you will see progress.
I work well with children, but love adults too! If you want fundamentals, you've got the right lady. I teach classical repertoire and technique as well as pop, rock, standards. If you want more theory or ear training, I can do that too! Just Do it !

*** Travel Equipment ***
If we are able do additional computer theory, I will bring a laptop. I expect my students to have a full sized keyboard (if possible)or piano.

*** Specialties ***
Pretty general, across the board from Classical to pop.

Rhonda G.

Hemet, CA

About Rhonda

With over 20 years of experience as a musician, piano teacher, and music director, I am able to explore all aspects of musical theory and make the piano an enjoyable and exciting instrument to learn to play.

My lessons will be rhythmically exciting, and never boring. I always have book lessons as well as personal musical pieces that the student would like to work on. I most often will incorporate ear training in all of my lessons without being obvious about it, as well as performance. I believe it should be music that speaks to the heart.

Not only will students achieve their goals i
n learning to play their favorite song or actually play well, they will find a peace and a calm in freely exploring the art of music. Whether they find it to be an escape from it all, or their future with a musical career, it shall be achieved.

Did you know that a troubled child can find rest and recovery from getting involved in the arts, especially that of the piano? Did you know that as a remedy from feeling despair and hopelessness, the piano is a proven healer? Wouldn't you like to play a song to a friend or a neighbor and make them feel better today? TAKE PIANO LESSONS!!... YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY...

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: 3 pianos (upright piano and 2 digital 88 keys weighted). Microphones, amps. Music stands, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
A piano, or at least a 40-key keyboard instrument that has depth of sound. A good quality instrument, because if not, they will lose interest.

I have a Roland-88 key traveling digital piano instrument. This can go wherever I go. I also own a Technics Digital piano that has all sound capabilities and recording features. I also own an Howard or Baldwin Upright piano, which plays beautifully for those getting to know a true piano sound and control of its pedal.

*** Specialties ***
contemporary gospel, jazz, show tunes, semi-classical

Ms. Rhonda is a great teacher! She is very attentive to my daughter. She is able to recognize both her strengths and things she needs to work on and teaches her accordingly. I love that Ms. Rhonda is teaching her not just piano but vocal as well and it helping her develop her ear.
She is very patient and encouraging. My daughter has learned so much in such a short time. I highly recommend Ms. Rhonda.
