About Sheila M.

Irvine, CA

View Full Profile

I have over 14 years of teaching experience with students of all ages and levels. Students will learn to read music, music terminology, music theory, technique, and a wide variety of piano repertoire (classical, pop, rock, international music etc.)

About Sheila
*** If you would like to purchase lessons with me and don’t see a time that works for you, feel free to send me a message so I can add you to my wait list. My schedule tends to change often, so I will try to accommodate anyone that is dedicated and serious about taking lessons.

***I can currently only accommodate weekly lessons. Requests for lessons that occur other week will not be accepted.

————————————————————————

My interest in music began at the age of seven when I began private instruction in classical piano, and by the age of ten, I began playing the flute. I received my Bachelor of Music with a degree in Music Education from the University of Redlands, where I studied flute with Sara Andon. There, I performed in the university's Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, and Orchestra. During my third year at university, I studied abroad a
t the Zoltan Kodaly Pedagogical Institute of Music in Kecskemet, Hungary.

In 2013, I graduated from California State University, Northridge with a Masters degree in Flute Performance where I studied flute with Sandra Kipp. At CSUN, I performed in the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, Northridge Flute Quartet, and various chamber ensembles. I currently reside in Irvine where I teach private flute and piano lessons and perform with local ensembles.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal as a music educator is to foster excellence in the art of music through private instruction. I have worked with students of all ages ranging from 5 to older adults.

In my studio, students will have a well rounded music education. This means that we will work on a variety of things such as sight reading, music theory, music history, and a wide range of repertoire (from Beethoven to the Beatles!) While I have high expectations for my students, I do my best to keep the lessons relaxed and lighthearted. My hope is that the student is always engaged and interested during lessons.

My three expectations:

1. Come prepared both mentally and physically (this is especially important for flutists-- make sure to warm up prior to the lesson!)

2. Don't be afraid to ask questions and make mistakes. This is non-threatening territory, I'm here to guide you and help you. Remember that mistakes happen, we're human. Just be sure to learn from those mistakes so that you can take something away from each experience.

3. For parents-- BE INVOLVED! I can't tell you how often I've seen younger students excel when their parents were proactive in the experience. This means encouraging them to practice, coming up with a rewards system, and even sitting in on the lesson to take notes. This way, you can reinforce what we accomplished during the lesson at home together. It's difficult for music teachers to compete with iPads, Playstations and television, so let's get creative together!

*** Required Materials ***
Flute students must own a well maintained flute, as an instrument that is out of adjustment causes frustration and can initiate bad habits. In addition, the student must also have a metronome and tuner, a music stand, flute repertoire, and an assignment book for me to write down each week's assignments.

Piano students must have a working acoustic piano or digital piano in their home for piano lessons. The student must also have a metronome, piano repertoire, and an assignment book for each week's assignments.

About John
I am a graduate of the Cal Poly Pomona music department looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with people who want to express themselves with music!

I use the John Thompson Piano book series to build understanding of written music, theory, and artistic expression. In addition to teaching classical techniques, I help guide my students on the path to writing their own music!

During my time in university I played piano with the Kellogg Soul Ensemble and the Jazz Combo. I also sang extensively with the university concert choir.

Experienced piano teacher of 14 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I'm very patient and kind with students; we mix lessons up with games and other activities to learn theory and ear training too!

About Clarissa
Hi, thanks for checking out my profile! My name is Clarissa Lee and I've been teaching piano for 15 years. I'm an active member of the Music Teachers Association of California. I am committed to providing professional, well-rounded music instruction. My goal is to provide a comfortable environment for you to learn and enjoy music!

I provide a combination of repertoire, theory, sight reading, and ear training appropriate to your level. My piano studio is very fun, with plenty of games and learning incentives. Students are given many performance opportunities.

I expect each student to practice consistently each week. I believe that training in classical music is essential to build quality musicians. The core repertoire will be from the great classical composers, but I always add kid-friendly music to the assignment, whether it’s the
James Bond theme or Star Wars.

Eric is fantastic! I took piano lessons as a child and was looking to brush up on my music reading skills as an adult. Eric was the perfect teacher to help me regain my musical confidence. He is so patient, and is very thorough with his instruction.
I received easy and fun piano exercises that I could work on throughout the week in between lessons. I also loved that he came to my home, and I was able to receive instruction on my home keyboard. He is a wonderful teacher!

Eric’s skills as a choir director are perfectly translatable to being an effective music teacher. He wants to help you put forth your best. He’s communicates clearly, can show you technically what he expects you to deliver, adjusts to different learning styles, and is very encouraging and kind. Eric also has high expectations and helps you believe in yourself!

I tried learning piano as a kid and just couldn’t do it because my family could not afford a piano in the home. Finally, as an adult, I decided to try again. I got an electronic piano and tried some online courses but it just wasn’t working. I found an ad for Eric’s lessons and the first one was great. He made the lessons enjoyable and more importantly the practicing excercises were tedious but fun and I could see how they connected with each other. Kid or adult, I would recommend Eric, comes to your home and will get you playing quickly.

About J'Noie P.

Rialto, CA
View Full Profile

4 years of experience in piano teaching specializing in classical musicianship and teaching piano to students with disabilities including autism and down syndrome. I have more of a Montessori approach to lessons in which I use the students natural aptitudes in order to convey musical concepts whether it be LEGO's to explain different note values or different cars to explain different tempos. I teach all aspects of music including sight singing and theory. Your student will be playing songs they sing in no time!

Education wise I am currently attending school in order to receive my Bachelor's in Music (BM) and have been nominated for performances at both Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera house. I also have performed piano concertos with orchestras all over southern California!

About J'Noie
I am a professional musician specializing in both flute and piano. Beginning the piano at just 5 years old I've had 14 years of playing experience which have taken me throughout the country. I also have attended multiple masterclasses and music teacher summits. I have performed solo pieces with many orchestras throughout Southern California

My experience with teaching music began 4 years ago when I started teaching at a small studio in Rancho Cucamonga, I since then have moved lessons to the privacy of my own home or my students. Here, I taught not only the full spectrum of ages but students with different disabilities such as dyslexia, ADD, ADHD, autism, and down syndrome, all of whom were successful with piano lessons. I believe that students should have a full music experience and that they should not feel forced therefor I focus
ed on their already honed gross motor skills and fine motor skills in order to master musical concepts and elements such as intonation, rhythm recognition, and sight singing.

At the end of winter and and summer I host music recitals where students are more than welcome to participate in addition to many other meetups throughout the year which I have found to be particularly conducive for home-school students.
