About Jonah
If you're going to hire a guitar teacher, your lessons should be something you look forward to every week. The majority of instructors use a one-size-fits-all approach, and as a result, their students can quickly become frustrated and lose interest. I've always found this unfortunate because playing the guitar can be such an incredibly enjoyable and rewarding experience.

With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what playing styles interest them, and what teaching approach works best. I then come up with a lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

About Carmen
Carmen has been teaching music for 10 years to children and adults, from age 4 to 50. She is able to teach many genres of music to all levels of musicianship, whether beginner or advanced, whether they want to learn Mozart or Coldplay, Aretha Franklin or Joni Mitchell . Her style of teaching utilizes the classical approach of theory and sight reading, but MOST IMPORTANTLY allows the student to explore the instrument freely while also achieving good musicianship. Having fun while honing the craft is the way to an enduring love of playing and is a principle she always uses in her lessons.

Carmen has a special gift with very young children; she is able to keep children interested, engaged, inspired and challenged. She has a patience with children that is extraordinary because she believes strongly in the ability of music to enrich child
ren's lives in all areas and seeks to cultivate that within the child.

Adults also find it easy to learn from Carmen's teaching approach. Her ability to approach a students challenges with a multitude of learning techniques has been useful in helping students succeed. She teaches skills and techniques for practicing that are useful for musicians through out their lifetime. Carmen also knows exactly what it takes to make a student a professional who is ready for studio session work, live band performances, live improvisations, auditions or creating their own music. She understands the desire and drive behind wanting to create with music and emphasizes certain key aspects that can make musicians proficient in any genre when practiced

Education

Carmen comes from a long family lineage of musicians and artists. Always being exposed to classical music and opera since birth, Carmen was in awe of the power of the human voice through opera. At 8 she began to study the art form and teach herself music. She started studying with teachers at age 11. After learning voice, piano and cello followed. While studying classical techniques, she also taught herself other genres of music which enabled her to play, record and perform with musicians of almost every genre by 19.

Carmen has been taught and trained by many professional working musicians of impressive musical carrer heights Her former opera/ vocal coach Shonie Lebie attended The Julliard School on a full scholarship before going on to The Metropolitan Opera House. Piano teacher Shoshana Ben Horin, a graduate of Prague Conservatory of Music and concert pianist, toured all of Europe before instructing Carmen in piano. Carmen has learned cello and other string instruments from professional working musicians here in Los Angeles.

Experience

Carmen is a current working session musician, songwriter and performer in Los Angeles. She has performed and recorded with musicians from The Gap Band, Guns n' Roses, Whitney Houston, Vanessa Hudgens, Hayden Panettiere, etc. She was born and raised in Los Angeles.

About Megan
I grew up in a music store, and learned a love for music at an early age. I started piano at age 3, and just kept adding instruments from there. I majored in music at MidAmerica Nazarene University, where I was on scholarship for Piano, Trumpet and French Horn. I have taught General Music, Beginning Band, and Beginning Orchestra in four LA area private and charter schools, as well as teaching music classes for home-school co-op groups in the Hollywood area. I've been teaching private lessons for nearly 10 years, taking students from ages 4-adult, from beginner to intermediate skill levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music should be fun, and my lessons are geared towards keeping students engaged and excited. I've developed a very out-of-the-box teaching style that takes into account the student's learning style, interests, and goals. It
's important for students to feel successful from day 1, and it's my goal to have each student playing a song by the end of the first lesson. We sing, move, and play our way through music!

I love the fact that Megan manages to balance exercises that are really fun and easy for me as well as some which are harder and which I need to work on. She adjusts the pace to my abilities and I always feel I have accomplished something after our lessons, which is great.
She lets me chose songs, but always has suggestions, if I don't.

LA is lucky to have Stephanie as a resource to help you maximize your singing potential. With her wealth of knowledge and experience teaching, she can quickly diagnose the tendencies and habits holding you back. Within two weeks, she has helped me expand my range further than I ever thought possible. She is incredibly patient, meticulous, a great listener, and fun to work with. It's difficult to imagine a better singing instructor than Stephanie.

Hi there!
Welcome to my TakeLessons profile. If you or someone you know wish to learn Piano, German, HTML or Microsoft Excel, you've come to the right place!

I've played piano since I was 5 and have recently graduated from UCLA Extension's Certificate program in Film Scoring.

I'm also a native speaker of German with almost 10 years of experience as a translator and QA analyst.

Part of my job as a QA analyst was structuring data using Excel and I would be happy to teach you the ins and outs of data entry, filtering, formulas and even VBA for automating tasks while focussing on your needs or we can work from my lesson plan.

Finally, I have completed many credit units in computer science and I'm a published app developer and would like to offer help with your HTML skills including language features, free editors and, if you're i
nterested, some fundamentals of advanced web technology such as CSS, JavaScript, PHP and mySQL if required.

About Jan
I grew up in Switzerland. With the age of 13 I started taking lessons at Conservatory Lucerne where I majored in piano with 20. In that time frame I won several national awards as pianist, performed in musicals as actor and singer, wrote songs for bands and musicals and started teaching piano. When I turned 23 I got an artist contract with Warner Music and released two albums which both reached national regard. 2016 I wrote a movie soundtrack for two German motion pictures.

And now; I’m here! Eagerly writing music and performing and pushing myself a step further to my dream. I have lots of experience in songwriting Popular Music, as well as Musical, Rock and Alternative. I have lots of experience in teaching kids and teenagers from 5 to 16 in piano and performing and I’m highly experienced in teaching young adults and adults in piano
as well. But the best part is, I am not that old mean piano lady that we’re all so scared of. I am very motivated to bring your piano skills to a next level! No matter your age or know-how.

Hello future students! I've been playing violin for 20 of my 25 years of age and teaching for 8 years. I believe that the most important part of learning the violin is having fun and building a passion for music.

In my lessons we will focus on proper violin technique, music theory and practical application. In practical application, the student chooses what he/she would like to work on, whether it be Mozart or The Chainsmokers or the Moana score, and we learn it together!

I am also proficient in music production/engineering which means that my students can professionally record themselves in my home studio! I also make viral violin videos which I want to start including my students in.

If this sounds like fun to you - let's get started! :)
