Pamela P.

Los Alamitos, CA

I teach beginning to intermediate piano to all ages. Using solid, established curriculum, and fun exercises, anyone is guaranteed to learn.

About Pamela

My greatest passions are music and teaching . . . so teaching music is heaven for me! It’s my greatest joy to create a fun and creative environment so my students not only learn, but flourish!

Music and performing is fun and rewarding. Learning how to be excellent at it should be fun and rewarding too! I've been teaching voice, music and performance to people of all ages for over 14 years. As a singer I specialize in Pop, Country, R&B, Gospel, Contemporary Christian, Rock, Classical and Musical Theater. As a teacher, I teach and perform all styles comfortably . . . except Rap .
. . I'm not very good at rap . . . I can write rap, but don’t ask me to perform it for you. . . unless you're looking for comedy entertainment.

I was born with a natural ear for music and a love for singing and was placed in private piano and vocal lessons at age 7. From age 10 to present I have been a member of various singing groups: Concert Choir, Vocal Jazz, Chamber Singers, Church Choirs, Show Choirs, Pop, Country, R&B, Rock and Gospel Groups, special ensembles and hired caroling groups.

Another interesting aspect of being a singer is the private and public performance opportunities. Since 1985, I've had the privilege to be hired as a Professional/Paid Vocalist, singing at Weddings, Funerals, Conferences, and Special Events. I've also been privileged to be able contribute my vocals to multiple independent recording projects.

All of these experiences have blended together to help me teach from varying perspectives and approaches so that the technique and result is customized to each student’s needs.

*** Lesson Details ***

I specialize in training all genres for solo and group vocals. I teach ear training for the new beginner, refined technique for the more advanced; incorporating performance and confidence techniques.

I’m a practical, laid-back, and warm person who appreciates the differences in our learning styles and interests. However, I understand the importance of hard-work and structure so there will be a healthy balance of both!

The most important part of our lessons will be our first day. I begin by learning about YOU! At our first meeting, I want to learn what interests you, what you’re doing now, what you hope to be doing someday and then use that existing interest, coupled with published teaching materials (when appropriate and available), to help you learn what you need to learn to get where you want to be.

With consistency in attendance and practice, you will be amazed at your progress in 3 months time and beyond.

I look forward to teaching you!

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in training all genres for solo and group vocals. I teach basic theory and ear training for the new beginner, refined technique for the more advanced incorporating performance and confidence techniques.
As a singer I specialize in Pop, Country, R&B, Gospel, Contemporary Christian, Rock, Classical and Musical Theater - I teach all styles.

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!

Jill Z.

Huntington Beach, CA

I adjust to the student's needs and we find what music they would like to play. I have them try different styles of music and also help them with solos they want to learn and familiar music like Mario Brothers, movie music, and popular music. I teach through Suzuki Piano Book 6. They also learn classical music, rag time, jazz, and other styles. Music should be fun. Lessons combine various musical activities to keep the student stimulated and focused.

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 ...

Piano lessons are the perfect way to get a bird's-eye-view of the music world! You'll learn the universal subjects of melody, harmony, music theory, and musicality while you tackle piano specific techniques such as proper fingerings, sightreading, and comping. Take on any style of music from classical to jazz, pop to country!

About Eulis

--------------- I also teach Online via Skype or FaceTime! --------------------
Hello! Thanks for visiting my Takelessons profile. Let me start off by telling you a bit about myself:
I have been performing for over 20 years as a musician, acting since I was a small boy, and working consistently with public speaking, accent reduction and other presentational skills throughout my career. 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 incredible opportunities from touring the world to performin
g in marvelous concert halls and working with some of today's most respected artists, as well as giving me the opportunity to expand my performance skills through acting in various plays, musicals, television, and film.

Performing has absolutely been my salvation! Throughout my life it has been a best friend and constant source of joy, and I share this gift with others so that it might help them to find the same joy. After more than 10 years of teaching, I have so many new experiences to draw from and share with my students. I've spent the last 8 years performing with Disney in Anaheim and abroad in their Tokyo Disney cast, and I must say that those experiences, vast and varied as they are, have given the word "performance" a new depth. I'm always excited to dive into every lesson with fresh ideas that will mesh well with many tried and tested teaching techniques.

Originally from Los Angeles, I now reside in Orange County and I'm especially proud to have expanded my studio to serving clients all over the world with online lessons via Skype and FaceTime! I get such joy from sharing my experiences with a diverse group of people from all walks of life.
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!

For Students of Voice: 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.

Pianist Spotlight: How Ben Folds Brought the Piano Back to Pop
