Robert
Thanks for letting me provide a reference for Alex. I have taken alto sax lessons from him over the years, starting about 4-5 years ago. Alex is a great musician and teacher. Each lesson was consistently structured for: sound quality and listening, technical work and reading, duets, and improvisation. Rather than heavy music theory, he would instead provide routines to reinforce these concepts. He was always patient, and emphasized what I did well, with subtle redirection to correct problems. I definitely improved under his guidance and teaching.

The only reason I stopped seeing him was that my job became very demanding, and I could not devote enough time to practice and justify the time and cost of lessons. But even when I showed up unprepared, he was understanding and flexible to work with me.

If it would have been possible to have Alex come to me, I would have welcomed that.

Private Music Theory Teacher

I've studied music for over 21 years. I specialize in teaching classical music, but also teach pop/Broadway/Sacred styles. I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in Professional Studies: Piano and have been teaching professionally since February 2008 when MuzikAdict Piano Studio was established. I have experience teaching ages 3-84. I include theory in all my lessons and also love to dwell solely on music theory without emphasis on an instrument. Looking forward to meeting you!

Rebecca has been an amazing teacher for our son! He began lessons 2 years ago (when he was 6) and really enjoys it. She is very professional, kind, and committed. Our son has done so well that we are now adding our daughter (she is almost 6). I can't say enough good things about Ms. Rebecca!!!!

Very friendly! Not great for adult learners past a basic level. Apartment was sometimes not very clean and after correspondence with her indicating what I wanted to start lessons it became clear that she did not read/remember my email and was unprepared.

About Leonard

Hi! I'm Leonard Hayes, I love the piano and I'd like the opportunity to share that love with you! Currently, I'm based in Los Angeles pursuing doctoral studies at the USC Flora L. Thornton School of Music. I hold performance degrees from the Eastman School of Music (M.M) and Lawrence University

Mr. Hayes has been my favorite piano teacher so far (and he was my 7th piano teacher!). He taught me to really understand classical piano music and helped me to find my own voice and expression. Under his tutelage was when I really began to understand the depth and detail and most importantly how to really bring life and personality to even the simplest of music. My technique also improved vastly as Mr. Hayes is very detailed and disciplined when it came to breaking bad habits and using as much of your body to enhance and take control over your playing. Being Mr. Hayes’ student was life changing and a huge turnaround in my piano career, so I unequivocally absolutely positively recommend him to be your teacher.
Cassandra
Leonard Hayes is hands down the best teacher I have ever met. I have had trouble playing without pain for the 4 years that I have been trying to learn the piano, and Leonard is the only teacher that has helped me learn healthy techniques for playing expressively on the piano. In addition, he is kind, patient, and understanding, no matter what. I heartily recommend him for any level of student, whether you’re an expert or an eternal beginner like me.
Jasmine
Leonard Hayes is a world class instructor and performer! His understanding of piano pedagogy is superb and produces fantastic results. I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing his work first hand, He trains all levels of performers and has a load of patience ! Most importantly, he encourages a love for piano, the art, skill, and history. He’s your best choice in piano teachers, trust me!

I studied jazz and world music in college, so I have extensive knowledge of advanced music theory. I also help students with ear training so they can figure out songs on their own. While I believe that music theory is second in importance to being able to play your instrument, I feel it is essential in creating well rounded musicians.

About Aaron

Hello fellow and future musicians, and thanks for checking out my profile! To tell you a little about myself, I was exposed to music at a very young age since my dad was a musician. I first picked up the drums at the age of 5, and took piano lessons for a year when I was 6. I later played the sa

"There are those who teach out of necessity, and those who teach out of passion

I'm taking music theory and composition lessons from Daniel to supplement what I already know from composing by ear. He's an excellent teacher, very enthusiastic about teaching the material, and extremely knowledgable. I feel like I've learned a ton so far and we're not even close to done yet! Highly recommended."

"Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory."
