I give a lot of importance to getting to know the students. Each student has different goals and plans in mind that knowing them makes the lessons so much more interesting, motivating and interactive. Students are in a road to discovery. I try to do my best in helping them in this path of discovery by giving them the tools they need which are learning the techniques and having fun and enjoying the art of playing the piano.
There is always so much joy and excitement in learning to play a new piece. I hope everyone can experience this.

About Nahal
Music is the food for the soul. It inspires and influences people whether they are musicians or not.

I started playing the piano when I was 10. My parents took me for piano lessons to introduce me to music and see whether I’d like it. Well, I loved it! I have been playing since then and music has become part of my life. I have been taking piano lessons with 3 different private instructors. My recent private piano teacher is a student of Iran’s most well-known pianist and composer, Emanuel Malek Aslanian. My focus area is classical piano music. Some of my favorite composers include Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Mozart, Schubert and Bach. However, I enjoy music from all over the globe and love discovering new musical styles and pieces I can play !

I have been teaching piano for over 6 years. I love teaching and I love piano. I have been
fortunate enough to combine these two to be able to create a loving and inspiring environment for my students to learn and discover their talents. I also love working with people of different age groups. When I teach, I always learn a lot from my students and I always find so much excitement in working with people.

As for my education, I have a B.S. degree in Electrical Engineering from UCSD. The cool thing is that music and Mathematics are totally related. Music Theorists often use mathematics to understand music. I have realized my educational background has helped me to understand music more in depth and improve my technical piano playing skills.

I am originally Persian. I speak both English and Farsi.

I am really delighted and look forward to meeting you.

Nahal has been a great teacher for my eleven year old daughter. She is very patient and makes the process of learning a new instrument fun and stress-free which is important in order to inspire young people to continue playing. I hope that she will continue to teach for many more years!

I teach students to play all genres of music from beginning to advanced levels.

I can teach to play by reading sheet music and/or by ear (which means to play music without needing the sheet music in front of you)

All Levels are welcome

About Judy
I started taking music lessons at the age of 9. It began playing in the church and then I taught lessons in my home at the age of 16. I went on to attend and graduate from Christian Heritage College (now called San Diego Christian College) with a Bachelors Degree in Music and Business. I am now the Director of the Music Department at San Diego Young Artists Music Academy. I direct two youth and children choirs, a male chorus and a great adult choir. I also sing with the Voices of Prayze who travel with Jason Mraz from time to time. As a singer, pianist and as a teacher, I specialize in Gospel piano & vocal technique and repertoire. I also have a great deal of experience in Pop, R&B, and Classical so I am able to help students excel in these genres as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
As your private teacher, I can promise you a very soulful a
nd rewarding experience – having fun is part of my lesson plan. My goal for each student is to build confidence through knowledge and experience. I will encourage each student to reach into their spirit and bring out what is already inside of them through the type of music that brings them happiness. After 3- 6 months of lessons from me pianist will be able to know beginning concepts, play songs of their choice by ear and note read simple songs also. Singers will know beginning vocal exercises, be able to project their voice, and sing high and low notes accurately to songs according to their ability.

Very lucky and blessed to have found Judy. She's a gem for students hungry to learn Black gospel piano. Had 1st lesson today. Assessed my playing and sight reading ability, and we went straight to business on learning chord / music theory, and my strong desire to play church piano. She also showed me how to "gospelize" a few songs, for starting out. Not only did I feel comfortable and @ ease with her, but she teaches music theory in layman terms. Looking forward to more future lessons with Judy! Go to her if you truly want to learn gospel piano!

This has been a great experience. To be able to get Judy expertise has been a Godsent! She made me feel are at ease, as well as help me to challenge my vocals with great conditioning. I have learned so much which has aided me a non-singer to be developed to sing. She is very knowledgeable and insightful, great teacher that has made a great impact on my life as a born new singer :) Excellent! By: Stephanie Willis

My experience teaching piano spans nine years and I have helped my students develop their performance and interpretation skills to succeed in both examinations and their academic pursuits.
In addition, my students have learned to play their favorite songs, sing and play or improvise for special occasions or recreation. In our first lesson, we'll discuss your private goals and develop a plan for their realization. Within the first few weeks, we'll work on specific skills and techniques in order to achieve your goal. From the beginning, you will have a chance to practice your skills and work on music that inspires you on a grand piano. If desired, you'll have an opportunity to play your music at an annual recital or other performance opportunities.

My selection of materials depends on your skill level and personal goals. For beginners, I will often use Faber Piano Adventures, Alfred Piano, and the RCM Piano series. The RCM Piano series also caters to intermediate and advanced ...

I have been taking the piano lessons with Ania for a couple of lessons. She helped me realize my life-long dream of playing classical piano music. She is a very talented and astounding instructor with a super solid theoretical background. During the lesson with her, the music goes way beyond just playing the right note with correct tempo. She shows me those exquisite parts hidden behind the sheet music. The piano music starts to become dynamic, alive and captivating. I highly recommend her to anyone.

love teaching and keeping students interested. It's important to find titles that students can get behind and taking time to find pieces that are appropriate and interest students is my first priority.

I like to make sure that exercises are not looked at as a punishment. Breaking down how to apply a technique is as important as learning it.

Finally, I like to keep things light. I'm not going to motivate you by scaring you into practicing. There are other teachers that are good at that, but that's not my style. I'd rather work on finding out how to get you to be self motivated and actually enjoy what you're doing.

My specialties include jazz and pop styles.

About Steve
I'm a saxophonist, pianist, arranger & songwriter. I graduated from Berklee College of Music with a Professional Music Degree, and currently run a sheet music startup called NiceChart. I have been a Music Director for Middle School and High School Bands and also have over 15 years experience teaching privately. Private lessons allow a better transfer of knowledge and I love watching students progress!

I have been in touring bands, jazz bands, wedding bands, funk bands, and pop bands. Fun Fact: I was even once in a bossa nova Guns n' Roses jazz trio called Guns n' Nova. You could say I've played a lot of different styles.

I teach my clients in my comfortable home teaching studio in Clairemont, San Diego. I work with beginner and intermediate piano students and all levels for saxophone. I'm open to students of any age and music
al goals.

In my music career I've performed with Steffan Lessard (Dave Matthews Band) and Ed Robertson (Bare Naked Ladies) and played in bands that have opened for Guster, Blues Traveler, and The Wailers.

Some of the musical styles I regularly teach: Pop, Blues, Jazz, Funk, Soul, R&B, and Classical.

I started taking saxophone lessons from Steve in Fall 2017 after not picking up the horn in 10 years. He is very knowledgeable in theory and technique and has been extremely beneficial in helping me get my chops back up par. In these lessons I did not have much direction for Steve on what I'd like to accomplish but that wasn't an issue for him as he was able to make each lesson worth while by shedding light on harmony theory and creating lines as well as different techniques to focus on to improve my playing.

I just bought an additional 10 lessons and had my first lesson of 2018 with Steve this May and am very happy with my decision. He is giving me great feedback on charts I am playing and really giving me a sounding board to ask questions and grow as a musician within this instrument (alto). I personally have a fairly solid foundation in music theory but if you are new to music theory Steve can break that down for you step by step.

I look forward to continuing my lessons with Steve and am already seeing the benefits of having a great teacher.
