About Kay
I have been teaching Piano for 20 years now. I have taught students from age 2 1/2 - Adult. I was self-taught when I was a kid and begun taking formal lessons as a very young adult in my early twenties. I graduated from CSULB with my BA in Music with a concentration on Voice. As a Music major, you spend a lot of time at the Piano. I became a member of MTAC in 2004 and a member of Sigma Alpha Iota in 1998. I have a great passion for Music and a bigger passion for the Piano and sharing the wonders of how beautiful the Piano really is.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my opinion, piano is the hardest instrument to learn, but the most rewarding. If you can play piano you can pretty much play any instrument. I believe that a piano lesson should be fun. I'm a strict teacher with a smile and a giggle. I push my students to greatness while helping t
hem love the piano through the good times and the bad. I'm a very encouraging but honest teacher. I compliment when warranted and I assess incorrect performances in an honest, but encouraging manner. I always let a student know that, though their performance was not their best, they can and will improve. It's always only a matter of time. I use the Schaum and Nevin series depending on the student's personality. I teach Classical and Pop Music. It's important for a student to learn the Classics and gain the ability to play things they like. I find the happy balance between the two. I teach Beginning to Intermediate levels. I also like to incorporate Music theory into the lessons because understanding the mechanics of Music helps make playing and creating Music much easier to accomplish. A typical lesson will start off with a hand drill warm up. We then will move on to the lesson book and repertoire. Theory will be assigned as homework. I look it over at the beginning of the lesson and discuss it and answer any questions in the last five minutes of class. Baby lessons go as followed: 15 mins. of play time and 15 mins of Music theory. I like to keep structure in my lessons but sprinkle a little joy and laughter to keep the atmosphere light. It makes for a much more attentive Piano student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a Piano or Keyboard of some sort. I may provide music on occasion.

*** Specialties ***
Classical and Pop

I'm a NYC based actor currently living in Austin, Texas with over 25 years of tap dance experience. I love to teach and perform, and pride myself on maintaining fun environment while working hard. I've toured with two Broadway shows nationally, and have extensive training with great teachers such as Jason Samuels Smith, Jason Janas, Nick Young, Derrick Grant and Acia Gray to name a few!

I especially enjoy teaching people how to improvise and find their own voice, and specialize in building up technique so you'll be able to tap exactly what you hear in your head.

(Can do group lessons for an additional fee)

Let me show you what I know!

About Sean
I'm a NYC based actor currently living in Austin, Texas with a huge case of ADD, that resulted in a background in musical theatre, jazz piano, juggling, and many sports. Aside from acting and dance, I was a varsity tennis player, and competed at the national level for two sports, National Collegiate Table Tennis (NCTTA 2010), and on the U21 National Kayak Polo Team (based in Austin, Texas). I've also been a juggler for the past 15 years (5 club cascade and club passing), and jazz pianist (1 year training with Grammy Winner Hank Hehmsoth, and (in an freak chance meeting, 6 months with 2 time Grammy Winner Floyd Domino). I love all things tap dance and Golden Age Musical Theatre, and have many influences including Sammy Davis Jr, Gene Kelly, and Fred Astaire.

I love to teach, and find particular joy in jump starting passion in other p
eople for the random professions that I enjoy!

After signing up for Sean's tap dancing lessons, I was a bit concerned I wouldn't be able to keep up. I've seen his performances, and he is top notch. Starting out, I had no rhythm or skill.

We started out with in-home lessons, and after just 4 hours of training my wife was ready to buy the shag carpeting I'd always dreamed of!

All kidding aside, Sean is a fantastic teacher and a great friend. I would highly recommend taking a lesson with him for any of his many talents. He is easy to talk to, listens well, and provides great feedback. Thanks, Sean!

In 5 lessons with Sean, I was able to juggle 3 balls or clubs by myself, and pass 5 and 6 clubs with another person! He’s a delight to be around, always positive and encouraging, and really knows what he’s doing! Whenever I would get frustrated and want to give up, he would find a way to fix whatever was tripping me up, and make me feel great about my progress. I would recommend Sean to anyone wanting to learn this skill! He’s also really funny, and crazy talented in SO many areas in addition to juggling!

Jordan is an excellent teacher who’s very patient and takes the time make sure you’re really understanding. In one half hour lesson with Jordan you can learn as much as three lessons with other tutors. I highly recommend her.

About Mariah
Hello! My name is Mariah and I am a passionate artist thriving to share love and light through the arts! I have worked as a professional dancer for ten years and have over fifteenth years of diverse training. In my early years, I received my training from the Debbie Allen Dance Academy where I was molded by the best educators possible to acquire outstanding skills. Learning ballet, jazz, tap, dunham, flamingo, hip hop, salsa, African, point, modern, character, musical theater, and Latin fusion. After high school I attended Columbia College Chicago where I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Theater. During my years at Columbia I combined my passion for dance and interest in acting by diving into as much extracurricular as possible! I was one of the first student co-choreographers to choreograph a main stage musical at Columbia. I was very prou
d to co-choreograph Once On This Island while still working towards my degree! I have a very diverse background and it now reflects in my professional life. Currently, I spend my time taking care of animals, hiking, going to the beach, teaching dance/theater, taking dance class, and keeping up with my younger siblings.

I have judged for Star Bound Dance Competitions, taught lecture demonstrations at various k-12 schools around LA, performed for the Special Olympics, LA Lakers Half Time Show, Spaceship Launch Performance, Playboy Jazz Festival, Wallis Annenberg Center of Performing Arts, and Broadway Cares, worked with networks like FOX and BET, and have danced with various celebrities like Demi Lavato, Chris Brown, and Becky G.

My strive for positivity will help push you to your goals! I am very open and always wanting to learn so I will bring new things to the table constantly. Though, I am a firm believer in repetition and detailed practice. I have been highly disciplined throughout my years in the dance industry, and now combine my skills to create a diverse learning environment.

I can't stress enough how passionate I am about helping people! I plan to conduct a personal lesson that is designed for you. Working together we will create a plan that will exceed your expectations. We will create a comfortable, safe, creative, and diligent environment that is best for you! Small group classes are available as well!
