The piano is one of the most beautiful sounding instruments, and I want to help you achieve every musical goal you have with it. We will go over note recognition, scales. rhythm, technique, performance and more!

About Brianna
Hi, I'm Bri! I'm a graduate of North Central College with a BA in Music (Emphasis in Composition and Percussion) and a minor in History. I absolutely love music, every single aspect of it. I love to make music a part of everybody's lives who want and need it. I want to help you with your musical needs. I have been playing percussion for 17 years, singing for 23, and playing piano for 19 years. I was a member of a recording and performing Chicago band, Oblio and Arrow, where I provided backing vocals and helped with the song arrangements. I also record vocals for different artists hooks, jingles, choruses, and entire songs (covers and originals).

History has always fascinated me. They way our world has developed and changed, and continues to evolve is amazing. Everything can be tied back to the past, and I feel it's important to take
a look back, put yourself in that time, and really study how things were to help understand why things are the way they are now.

Crocheting and knitting are a couple of good habits/hobbies I picked up about 8 years ago. I sell scarves online and I'm always working on some sort of project. I will have you knitting and pearling with the best of them!

Music, history, crochet, and knitting....I'm your girl!

I have been teaching classical piano and music theory for last 7 years. As a student, I deeply understand the struggles, amount of patience, and constant hard work that comes with learning music. Learning piano will allow you to strengthen not only their ability to play, but also their patience. You can remain music lovers even without music lessons! As a teacher, most rewarding aspect of teaching is witnessing your reactions when you reach where they doubted.

I specialize in working with beginners to intermediate pianists of all ages, especially those at any level who know the style of music they want to explore and master. My passion is working with my students in ways that prepare them to pursue their musical interests armed with technique, music-reading capabilities, and what I call the "building blocks" of music: knowledge of functional music theory and how to use it.

"Music theory" can sound daunting, but in fact it is fascinating, at least the way I teach it, using analogies appropriate to the age of the student, from chords like different types of sandwiches (yum!) to chord progressions like the materials and equipment used to build a house.

I encourage my students from the start to EXPRESS themselves musically, emotionally, playfully, in ways that keep their imaginations engaged in their musical studies, rather than private lessons becoming stressful or tedious. Let's get started in my beautiful home teaching studio in ...

About Teresa
A musician since age 4, Teresa's dad took her early passion for music seriously. So she respects the power that parents have to foster their children's musical lives! She notes the many stories she has heard over the years: "If someone had just supported my interest"... "If my teacher had listened to what I wanted to learn."

These stories and her own passion for music-making inform her approach. A degreed music educator and multi-instrumentalist, she celebrates and uses the musical interests of her students to move them forward. She has three grown sons, including two touring musicians. Their musical lives also influence her work with children, young people, and adults. The point is to celebrate and develop each student's unique, interest-based musical self-expression.

In her home teaching studio in Sherwood Forest, CA, 30 minutes
is the perfect lesson time for most purposes. Options include piano, voice, ukulele, beginning guitar, music reading/theory, and preparation for auditions. Teresa also conducts early childhood music sessions for 3 to 5 year-olds and is available to do group sessions.

45-minute and 60-minute sessions are also available as needed. Teresa recommends 45 minutes to an hour for audition preparation.

I like to begin with warm-ups, then jump into learning something new, be it a time signature, key, technique, or composer. I like to incorporate music theory and ear training, but still keep the lesson fun, relaxed, and let the student ask questions and "play around" as well. I learned using the Alfred Basics books, and I think having a variety of music books - technique, recital, fun, and theory - gives the student a balanced approach without being overwhelming. I'm a sweet and funny lady. :)

About Tamara
Hello! My name is Tamara. I grew up in Minnesota and started taking piano and violin lessons when I was ten years old. I played in orchestra, in pits, sang in choir, acted in plays, and competed in speech competitions. After graduating from high school I went to the American Musical & Dramatic Academy in New York City to study musical theatre. I completed my BFA in Musical Theatre from Millikin University and have been acting and singing in professional productions in Chicago and Minneapolis ever since. I've also taught piano, violin, and voice lessons to private students for the past five years. I moved to LA last May with my Yorkshire terrier, Teddy. I love music and interacting with young people, and while I will encourage you in your practice and progress, I believe the most important thing is to enjoy learning and creating music.

About Christina E.

Profile_86393_pi_christinaheadshot3
Pasadena, CA
View Full Profile

In my lessons, we will cover basic technique, scales, and repertoire. I do emphasize basic theory to help students better understand the music and learn pieces more quickly. While working on these technicalities, I also try to make lessons fun and engaging so that the music has depth and a natural flow rather than mechanical approach that tends to make music dry and robotic.

About Christina
My name is Christina and I am very passionate about the vocal arts, specifically Opera. Opera was a surprise in my life that I discovered in college. It moved me to a point where I knew it was what I wanted to pursue. Though singing classically takes great patience, discipline, and perseverance, that 5 minutes on stage projecting pure vocal freedom and expression make it well worth it. The classical technique can provide a great foundation to healthy singing, which can ensure a long vocal life.
Along side opera, I believe basic knowledge in piano is extremely beneficial in improving musicality and an understanding of each piece. Piano greatly improves sight reading and ones ability to learn music quickly and efficiently. It can allow one to develop an understanding of harmony and context within each unique piece of music.
I have recent
ly started teaching and would love to help and guide those interested in music, specifically classical voice, opera, musical theater, and piano. I would love to share the great joy it brings me with others and pass down what I have learned over the years. I have completed courses in music pedagogy and education alongside my degree, and believe in shaping my lessons around each individual's learning style so that each student may continue to grow while having fun.

Cerritos, CA
View Full Profile

As a Berklee College of Music graduate with years of music teaching experience, I aim for my students to simply enjoy exploring the language of music and embrace the discipline of the learning process, whether it is through playing pop, jazz, or even their own compositions! The true treasure lies not in the end goal but rather, the path.

About Andy
To me, as both a teacher and student, the most valuable skill is to enjoy-- to enjoy every moment that comes, even the less pleasurable ones, for the true treasure lies in not the end goal but rather the path. To most young folks, the less pleasurable moments usually mean the boring ones such as studying or going to class.

Music is something that people enjoy when it comes to listening but is notorious for being just as unpleasant as any other subject, like Math for instance, when it comes to learning.

Learning takes discipline. Whenever I teach, I see myself as a navigator who guides students through their musical journey. As music is a language, my goal is for my students to become fluent and communicative in so -- being to read different forms of music notation, play songs and melodies by ear, and come up with their own compositi
ons, too-- and always while striving for that goal, my hope is for them to embrace both the fun and the less fun aspects of learning.

My 9-year-old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Andy for about a year and a half. When she started, she was brand new to music lessons and had never even tried to play an instrument- now she reads notes, plays a wide variety of songs, and has a whole new appreciation for music! Andy keeps my daughter motivated, engaged, and excited to learn by really tailoring his instruction to her interests and needs. Excellent piano teacher, thank you Andy!!

Andy is a thoughtful teacher who clearly spends considerable time figuring out how to tailor the lesson to the needs of the student. He combines rhythm activities and note reading and theory in ways that are fun, and creative, and help keep young students engaged and excited to learn. In the several months since my seven-year-old started, he reads music better than I do, but more importantly, he loves playing on the piano.

When my five year old started showing interest in the piano I knew it was time to start lessons. Andy has been great at turning a simple interest into a new ability. Our son is six now and I feel like he is better than me. He is able to recreate songs he hears as well as a little bit of free style. He's no Mozart of course, but Andy's patience and consistent training and encouragement have come a long way. I highly recommend him.

I love teaching piano, especially to kids! Each student will work from the Faber piano books (theory, lesson, and performance) to build a strong foundation in piano basics.
During our lessons you can expect,
-- Posture and hand placement
-- Scales & arpeggio instruction
-- Repertoire work
-- Improvisation
-- Learning how to practice
-- A fun, patient, and easy going experience!

About Zoë
**Now accepting piano and voice students for August 2017!**

I love music and teaching so much that when I am in the studio, I never feel like I am at “work”. I am a life long stage performer and recently earned my Masters of Music - Voice Performance from the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
As a private voice and piano teacher and a Kindermusik instructor, I have benefitted greatly from teaching students diverse in age, background, and experience level. I love the excitement of early note and rhythm discovery that comes with teaching young children, and it has been an absolute joy to watch my adult students grow more confident in their ability to express themselves through song. Your lessons are about you and I tailor my approach to meet your specific goals and experience level.

Zoe was a wonderful teacher to my children who took voice and piano, respectively. We will definitely miss working with her, but are excited as she begins a new journey to Los Angeles to develop her music studio. One of the attributes that I appreciated about Zoe's teaching style was her patience and the way she engaged with my children. My youngest child's attention span could be a challenge during lessons. Zoe was professional and patient when she re-directed her. Zoe was also good in complimenting the progress my children made, as well as, giving constructive criticism in a respectful manner and tone that was well received by my children. She always began lessons by checking in with my children and taking an interest in them outside the music lesson forum. She always answered my questions with honesty and integrity. We will also miss her smile and her singing voice, as she was a joy to listen to as she demonstrated techniques during lessons! She is a great teacher and you will be pleased with her work.

Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on.
