About Michelle
Hi

My name is Michelle and I LOVE singing and helping others learn to sing and bring out their own special voice!

I studied classical music since I was 11 years old and then went on to study Opera in College. This gave me a solid foundation for music and music theory but it wasn't where my heart was. Since my decision to leave Opera studies I have experienced many different musical incarnations. In my professional career as a musician and artist I have performed, written and recorded in many genres such as folk, blues, pop, indie and americana.

I believe there are no limits to what one can do if there is passion and excitement behind it! I have been in music a long time now with many ups and downs and still love (almost) every minute of it :) I truly enjoy teaching and watching my students grow and surprise themselves. I had the
most incredible teachers growing up, they supported me and help shape me as a artist and musician, I strive to do the same with my students. I genuinely care about each individual student I teach and want to help them achieve their highest potential!

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach each lesson catered to the individual. We all have different ways of learning. I studied classically as a chlid and went on to study Opera in University but I professional years have been spent doing a range of pop, blues, indie, folk and Americana. I have had many years in the music business and use that experience to help my students discover what they want to do with their voice. Are you an Artist? Do you just want to sing for fun? Are you an actor preparing a particular song for an audition? etc..

In all lessons we will focus on the connection of your breath. Basic warm up techniques, pitch control and full connection to the words you are singing. All music is telling a story and in my opinion that is one of the most crucial elements to a good singer is being able to successfully convey the story. And enjoying the process... its FUN!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Guitars, keyboard, ukulele, latest protools, vocal booth

***Specialties ***
I primarily teach popular music styles. I do have a background in Opera but I most of my students have been children, artist and actors that want to learn the fundamentals of proper singing techniques.

Downey, CA

Piano is my secondary instrument and I've been teaching it for the past 2 years. I've helped my students develop a love for the instrument as well as general music theory. I go through the different aspects of music, how to read and understand the different signs and symbols, step by step and make sure to give students enough material to practice. The book I like to use is piano adventures as well as works by Teleman, Chopin, and Mozart to start students off.

For more advanced students, typically the focus is put on performance, composition, advanced music theory and musical tones and colors. Works by Bach, Debussy and Beethoven are emphasized.

About Lilly
Hi there!
I am really excited that you've decided to take music lessons and are here on my page looking for an awesome teacher. I have lots of experience in music and I can't wait to teach it to someone else, whether they're a kid or an adult.

Currently I am attending graduate school for a Masters in Global Medicine so I can save the world later ;). I've spent a lot of time in school and music has been the one medium through which I have relieved stressed and made myself happy, inspired, and relaxed. While going to school, I also continued my music by being a teacher as well as helping out with the university orchestra.

Started music at a young age of 8, with my first instrument being the Flute followed by the Piano. Because I began music with a teacher who was studying music academically, I have a very strong background in theory
, technique, and tone. At the same time, I really think its all about having fun and loving what you play/learn.

I have taught adults and children so I do feel comfortable with any age group. I also have a pretty vast repertoire of different books and pieces that I use for different levels and ages.

My philosophy is for the learning/teaching experience to be a complete collaboration between me and the student. I am tough with certain things because I know they're super important to master but I like to also bend certain rules so that my student is happy with the classes.

I hope to hear from you and if not, I hope you find a really awesome music teacher!

Cheers,
Lilli

About Andy Y.

Profile_85970_pi_Front
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.

Students can expect a great time learning the basics of how to make music on the piano. We'll start with basic music theory, how to make sense of the piano keys and music notation and exercises for finger dexterity like scales and arpeggios. I am totally into integrating songs and styles of music that you enjoy listening to and would like to learn how to play. I'm well versed in classical piano, jazz, pop, rock and blues. Tell me what you want to learn to play and I'll show you how to play it!

About Lynn
I have been studying voice and piano and performing on stage in various capacities since I was a small child, acting professionally on stage, in films and TV for most of my adult life. I've been blessed to study with countless music luminaries in varying genres, from jazz and classical to rock n' roll and blues.

I studied music at the university level both at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC. I received my BFA in Jazz Vocal Performance from The New School in 2008. I was given an incredible foundation in ear-training, music theory, composition, arranging and song-writing through these institutions.

My diverse music education and experience means I am able to teach music in many different styles and music of many different genres. I can accompany my students on piano a
nd help them to prepare for auditions. I can teach how to read music, to play classically on the piano, to read jazz charts, or help you figure out parts for a chord progression for a pop or rock song.

My acting training is equally many-faceted and I have an incredibly strong foundation based in the teachings of Sanford Meisner, Stanislavsky, Lee Strasberg and Larry Moss. I use the knowledge of these great teachers along with the wisdom I've accumulated from MY mentors over the years in my teaching and coaching.

Lynn is stellar. Her background and training are substantial and impressive. She is prompt, courteous, calm and absolutely wonderful with our daughter (Age 9) who has challenges focusing and staying on task. Lynn is kind, but navigates the lessons confidently, fluidly and with a focused energy. She works with our daughter's playfulness, incorporates humor and positive, encouraging energy into every lesson. Our daughter has shown signs of great improvement with Lynn. Lynn assigns tasks and practicing points each week for our daughter to work on which are balanced and also bring in a component of improvisation, which is SO helpful for kids who have challenges with focusing. Lynn is awesome, highly recommend!

我女儿已经跟着Lena老师学了2年,老师有良好的性格,从来不会发脾气。
一个好的钢琴老师应该是一个颇具个人魅力的人、良好的性格、特有的艺术气质,能够针对不同学生的不同情况通过不同方式吸引、感染、带动学生。 好的钢琴老师,是你家儿子或女儿每星期要上课钢琴的那一天盼着要见的那个人。好的钢琴老师,是你家孩子弹了新曲子的时候,迫不及待的想分享的那个人。 一个好的老师还应该不仅仅只教授技巧,更教授为人之道, 好的钢琴老师,是让你孩子的文化境界更加提升的那个人。
Lena就是这样的老师也!❤

I purchased a gift certificate to gift piano lessons for my father. He had his first lesson with Lena today and asked that I write the review for him since he does not use the internet very much.

He said:
I really enjoyed my lesson with Lena today. She is a really patient, kind, and caring piano teacher. Her teaching style was very clear and easy to understand even though I do not have any past experience in music or playing instruments. She helped me learn the basic keys. I look forward to taking more lessons with her. I have already signed up for 4 additional lessons.

I played piano for 13 years, from ages 5 to 18, and then just stopped when I went away to college. I had aptitude for the instrument but did not have the discipline to sit down and practice. Fast forward 17 years, and I get intimidated just looking at a piano! I realized if I ever wanted to play again I'd have to find an instructor. It was so easy to find Evelyn via Red Pelican Music, and I started classes right away. It was a little frustrating to start from square one, but I know I really had to (I'd forgotten so much!). Evelyn was always encouraging and knew exactly what I needed to hear and learn. She also knew just when to introduce actual classical pieces instead of having me focus on the beginner books with short pieces and music theory. I love working with her and have made so much progress in the <6 months we have been working together. I would highly recommend her to any beginner or to someone re-starting as a beginner. And, of course, she's a highly accomplished pianist, so any skilled pianists looking for instruction would benefit from her teaching.
