My goal is to help you LOVE music. Technique and theory are fun, but they don't help if there is no passion. I am interested in helping you learn what YOU want to learn, and of course I will make recommendations and exercises that will help you progress. Music should be fun, and exciting, and I can help get you there.

About Andy
I have been teaching since 1994. I have a bachelors in bass performance and masters in music composition from CSULB. I am at home teaching theory and technique, but I also use teaching tools like: intuition, creativity, improvisation and song writing. I am comfortable teaching Bach or the Beatles and Mozart or Metallica. In addition to private students I have years of classroom teaching experience at Cypress College and Orange County High School of the Arts.

I have a studio at home, and a fun garden in the yard for parents and siblings to play in during a lesson.

Andy teaches piano to my 4 year old daughter. He is so patient and really engages with her. She has made a lot of progress very quickly because she is genuinely interested in practicing at home between lessons. Last week My son hangs out in the garden and play with his son westley. It works perfectly for us.

I have been teaching piano for over 25 years. Each student is unique; so I customize the lessons and repertoire to suit each student, utilizing method books and/or different styles of music depending on the student's interest. I always include music theory, note comprehension, rhythm and practice tips!

About Amber
I am an experienced, enthusiastic music instructor, who started playing piano around 8 years of age and participated in many musical activities. I received my Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Massachusetts, majoring in Music Education (voice and piano). I have appeared around the world as a soloist singing jazz and pop, including the Blue Note, NYC, and appeared as a guest soloist at the 2000 Southern California Summer Special Olympics. I also participated in ensemble groups such as the Masterworks Chorale in NYC, and the Verdi Opera Chorus of Southern California; and currently I volunteer at the Senior Center leading/accompanying the Sing-Alongs.

Inspired by my love of music, I have been teaching piano and voice for over 25 years from NY to LA and now Orange County. In conjunction with my teaching skills, I have
excellent communication skills, patience and enthusiasm, and work well with children and all ages. I feel that music is an important part of education, and it aids in the development of cognitive and motor skills. And most of all, it is fun and rewarding, and a skill to last a lifetime!

I thoroughly enjoyed meeting Amber and working with her today. I was immediately put at ease - Amber made me feel welcome, accepted and was incredibly helpful to me today, as I am auditioning on Sunday to sing as a soloist at my church! I have great exercises to strengthen my diaphragm, and she gave really good instruction regarding how to get the correct sound for each voice range. I am looking forward to meeting with her again, and continuing my studies under Amber.

Amber met me at her door with a smile on her face although I was much too early due to my over active excitement at arriving for my first lesson. Her first words to me were, "I'm so proud of you." That was a complement connected to my age of 83. I could have hugged her. Our lesson consisted of warming up my vocal cords after a long period of not singing. It was noted because of my hearing loss, that I was having trouble pitch wise and this would be something for me to work on besides my breathing. Amber's lesson was exactly what I needed and I can't wait for my next lesson.

- Proper fingering

-Playing melodies and chords
-Right and left hands independence
- Singing and playing, if desired

Required materials:

-Supplementary sheet music may be required-- I will provide from my library whenever possible.

MTAC Certificate of Merit, Royal Conservatory Music Development Program. MTNA & CAPMT.

The most rewarding and, perhaps, the most accessible form of entertainment and enrichment - especially with the affordability of electronic keyboards - may be playing the piano.

If you've always wanted to learn, there's no time like the present. Keep in mind that the first lessons are sometimes the most challenging, as is the case with learning any new skill. But the fun soon follows! And the mental and physical coordination is good for your health and longevity. What's not to love about learning to play piano?

School-aged students might want to participate in educational exam and evaluation programs and recitals. Adults - here is something you can do at a party instead of singing karaoke. (Whew.)

I have taught piano and general music in private, school and conservatory settings for 40 years.

About Patricia
I teach voice technique - how to get the most from your voice with no strain. And I also teach piano. Students and parents of students who expect intelligent, formal, conventional vocal or piano lessons taught by a seasoned, congenial and caring teacher will enjoy working with me.

And with more than 10 years Meisner-based acting training (Charles Conrad Studio and Steve Eastin Studio) and performing in film, TV, onstage and doing professional voiceover work, I am amply equipped to coach actors in your craft.

The more you put into your lessons, the more you get back from me. I love teaching those individuals who have a passion for their music.

I've taught privately and in public and private schools and in college and conservatory settings, vocal directed and musical directed musical theatre productions and directed choirs since
1975. I've taught for the Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA), and I currently teach voice and piano for the Music Conservatory at Mission Viejo Christian Church.

My professional background includes chorus work with Los Angeles Music Center Opera, with Orange County’s Opera Pacific and with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. I'm a San Mateo County Vocal Competition prize winner, and former staff soloist for the televised Crystal Cathedral Hour of Power Choir and the pre-recorded annual Glories of Christmas and Easter.

I've sung pop and rock, classical and religious background music, recording in various studios, including Hollywood's Capital Records, and performing in live venues large and small.

I honed my skills with a number of exceptional musicians including, most notably, Natalie Limonick (formerly general director of the USC Opera Program, director of the UCLA Opera Workshop and Opera Guild of Southern California President), Esther Andreas (Metropolitan Opera), Naomi Farr (New York City Opera), Nina Hinson (San Francisco Opera), Marion Cooper, Dietrich Erbelding, Charles Ross Perlee (conductor, San Francisco Opera and Bremen Opera), and several other respected teachers and coaches.

I'm a member of a number of professional organizations, including the Music Teachers Association of California, Music Teachers National Association, and the California Association of Professional Music Teachers. And I'm a Founding Teacher for the Music Development Program of the Royal Conservatory of Music.

I've been awarded an Emmy® for writing, I'm a former TV Arts & Entertainment news host and producer, NPR radio station affiliate host, and a former columnist for The Los Angeles Daily News. I'm a working spoken voice-over talent and an active member of SAG-AFTRA and AGMA.

About Sean
Hi, there! My name is Sean Roberts. I'm a singer/songwriter/producer and guitarist here in Orange County, CA and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 1997. I specialize in beginners and intermediate players but can also help advanced players as well. I love helping my students learn their favorite songs, learning how to solo, and being able to play with other musicians without fear.

Philosophy:
I teach the language of music through guitar, bass and piano. It is up to the student to develop their own sentences through the guidance that I provide. Many students feel overwhelmed by the thought of learning to read music. My goal is to make it easy as well as fun. Your lesson will always be geared toward what YOU want to learn, and if it seems like we are working on something that doesn't match that, I will
always take the time to make clear why what we are doing will have you be able to play what you want.

My Commitment To You:
There is nothing like having private instruction. Besides enjoyment music contributes to the development of imagination, creativity, positive self concept, achievement, self discipline and positive social skills. I go out of my way to make sure that all of these criteria are met by tailoring the lessons to each students learning ability. You already have every skill you need to be a great performer, and my job is just to steer the ship in the right direction to have that happen. All I am ever doing in a lesson is making sure that we are moving you in the ultimate direction that you want to be going musically.

I'm a easy going teacher and and my teaching style is geared to the way that you learn, at your pace. I look forward to helping you reach your goals! My job is to make you better than me. I will do everything I know how to do to make sure that what I have learned that will benefit you becomes something you have mastered. If I could take the "computer chip" in my head and put it in yours, we would do that. Study with me and you will get the next best thing!

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 performing 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 b
een 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 9 years performing with Disney in California 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 many 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! You're also welcome to visit my website at euliskay.com to learn more about me and what I do!

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.

I enjoy finding innovative ways to encourage and challenge my music students. I am very down-to-earth and all of my students and parents enjoy working with me. My own training and experiences have given me a very open-minded but direct approach to WHAT you should learn, and HOW FAST you should be able to progress each individual student. Just ask how my tailored style may assist you personally, or ask any questions that you may have.

About Matt
Please copy and paste this link to check out my YouTube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQDiOf3WMT9wBlprkMVJd1Q

With most of my music students, we focus on several key areas to ensure success of overall technique and knowledge: WARM-UPs, SCALES, MUSIC THEORY, SIGHT-READING, and PREPARED SONGS. I tailor my approach and style to each student. Although I'm very detail-oriented with lessons and followup, I'm constantly in search of finding FUN ways to make sure the student is enjoying the journey. I also prefer to work on a song that the STUDENT wants to learn. It's music, and it should be fun!

Please review the rest of my profile and send me any questions or concerns you may have. If I don't think I can be the best teacher for you, I will gladly refer you to someone else on Takelessons or elsewhere.

I've been a lifel
ong musician, and love finding unique and fun ways to motivate my students. I've worked with most styles of music before, and arranged music for many as well, so I'm very comfortable helping students with a variety of disciplines and interests. My professional experience in both the civilian and military music communities has given me an open-minded yet direct approach to WHAT you should learn, and HOW to develop each student's individual skills. I'm able to teach most students to an advanced level.

I'm an experienced teacher who loves working with beginners to get them excited about the piano! It has been proven just how helpful learning the piano has been for cognitive and mathematical skill development within the brain, so learning piano can help with school! Having the youth I have, allows me to connect with students on a less intimidating and more friendly level, making them excited to go see their friend.

About Madi
Hello! My name is Madison, but I go my Madi. I love the piano and the beauty and creativity it allows as you learn more about it. It may seem intimidating at first, but it will soon become your best friend. As you come to learn your favorite songs on the instrument, a fire you didn't know you have, will ignite inside you, and I would love to be that person to watch it grow.

I am so impressed with Madi as a piano instructor for a simple reason-- she has both a real love and natural talent for music AND she knows her technical stuff-- music theory and how to teach different ages. Too many teachers are either/or that way so I really connected with how she balances both the artistic and music loving aspects with solid technique on the piano. I definitely would recommend her as a piano instructor.
