***Music Students***
I teach students not only how to sing, but also how to perform. This will benefit all students who are looking to audition for a musical, or are interested in performing in front of an audience.

I believe that it is important for music students to learn how to be true musicians. For this reason I have created a student ce
ntered curriculum that includes a variety of learning objectives including: vocal and breathing technique, improvisation, listening and interpreting, student song selection, performance, music theory, and community musical involvement.

Kristen is SO helpful. I've only taken a few classes so far and my vocal abilities and confidence behind a microphone have improved drastically. I started singing late -- at age 27 -- and without much instruction so it has been a difficult process on a steep learning curve so far (the past two years). Kristen punts me farther up that curve every time we meet :).

She is structured but not rigid, super knowledgeable and very professional. Highly recommend her!

About Steven
Steven B, Instructor
PIANO - GUITAR - VOICE
For over 25 years, Steven B has been successfully teaching hundreds of students on piano, guitar, and voice. He has over 60,000 hours experience as a teacher, musician, and performer. He teaches all styles, ages and skill levels. Beginners are most certainly welcome. The lessons are in the convenience of your home online throughout the United States with Multi-angle cameras for online students or in the Coronado Music Studio. Whatever your level, be prepared to learn and have fun!

In addition, he tailors the lessons to fit your goals and desires for your instrument, whether it be piano, guitar, and or voice! (Many of his students take lessons on two instruments, for example Guitar & Voice or Piano & Voice.) You may be wanting to learn your instrument from the beginning, and then finding out
your passion for a certain genre of music, or possibly learning and playing songs you love. In another example, you may have been playing for a period of time and possibly you desire to heighten your game, learning new skills and technique regarding your instrument. Or quite possibly, you want to blend the joy of singing while playing the piano or the guitar! It's time to go through the joy and benefits in playing a musical instrument and or singing!

PERFORMANCE
Steven B has extensive experience in performance. For many years, he performed piano and sang at many fine establishments throughout San Diego and Los Angeles. Later on, he produced a concert tour and performed 50 concerts to 15,000 young people throughout San Diego. The title of his concert tour is Heroes In Our World. Steven B played keyboards, guitar and sang. The concerts honored real-life moms, dads, doctors, nurses, teachers, athletes, entertainers who give back to charity, police officers, firemen, and explorers who make our world a better place. His list of performances continues. He has a record of being the only musician to write a song, produce it, playing the instruments and vocals, along with filming and editing the videos of the performances each week for 52 consecutive weeks. His students benefit because he teaches many aspects in performance and can prepare students for any kind of audition or performance.

In conclusion, whether you want to learn to play an instrument and/or sing just for your own benefit and joy... Or you want to perform... Or you want to be professional earning money with music - you have come to the correct place. He will be looking forward in working with you. Again, he teaches all styles, ages and skill levels. Beginners are most welcome. He currently has one or two openings for new students.

Reviews From Students and Parents (Piano - Guitar - Voice)

“I just wanted to say Thank You and let you know how much I appreciate all the information and help you have given Mikey. You helped him form a great hobby that he loves to do and the family loves to hear. He has come so far since his first lesson and I am happy you kept the Piano lessons interesting for him. Thanks again for being a kind, great teacher to him.” - Cheryl, 5 Stars! 

“Steven B, a patient, gifted teacher has supervised my studies on guitar with good humor, wit and flexibility.  I would recommend him without hesitation to players young and old.” - Tim, 5 Stars!  

“I took voice and piano lessons in Steven B’s Coronado Music Studio and also online via Skype.  Both experiences were great, and it was really convenient to do the lessons on Skype.  Steven B is an excellent teacher, and he is very patient.  I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to play an instrument or sing!” - Kat , 5 Stars! 

“Steven B’s fun and patient teaching style rocks. I see how his bright, fun-loving personality, and knowledge of music for piano makes him top choice as my daughter’s music instructor.” - Anthony, 5 Stars!   

“Steven B is a wonderful teacher!  He is talented, always enthusiastic, and extremely motivational! Each lesson is designed specifically for our daughter Kelsey's ability and desired genre of music! Kelsey began guitar and vocal lessons in the Coronado studio and is now taking lessons via Skype since our move to Virginia.  The lessons are convenient, affordable, and productive. We are excited to be able to still have Steven B as her guitar and vocal teacher!” - Amy, 5 Stars!  

“I came to Steven B as a beginner in piano and I took the piano lessons on my Casio keyboard. I just wanted to learn my favorite songs. Steven B got me into the music I really enjoy!  In only three months, I was able to play and sing a song I truly love titled “Angel” from Sarah McLachian.  My teacher said I performed it as well as the artist. My friends, loved my performance of the song!” - Katrina, 5 Stars! 

“My son has taken guitar and voice lessons with Steven B for the last year.  We are pleased with classes and the improvement we've seen in comparison to a previous instructor.  Steven B is punctual and extremely respectful of the time and money it takes to provide lessons.  He can be counted on to be both friendly and professional.  He comes prepared for lessons and expects the same of his students.  If you are serious about learning and improving your skills, we highly recommend him.” - Christina, 5 Stars! 

“My time in being instructed by Steven B on piano was a great, informative experience. Ever since the first lesson, he is a very good teacher that clearly knows what he is doing. Mr. B. taught me at my own pace, taking time to help me work on skills, especially small details that help me perform much better. He is a very skilled instructor, teaching me pieces from not only music books that he provides, but also the valuable skill of learning by ear, a skill few other teachers bother to touch on. Steven B has helped on a number of occasions with songs that I am learning on my own and fit time into our lessons to work on them. He is always willing to let the student work on what they like as well as what he gives out. When I once mentioned my liking for jazz, we soon started an in-depth series of lessons into the genre, teaching me much more than I ever knew prior to it. I’ve never felt pressured by my assignments and pieces to bring home, as Steven B knows everyone goes at their own pace and can take anytime from a few days to a few weeks to learn a song. My time with him was a very fun and informative time that I thoroughly enjoyed.” - Michael, 5 Stars!

Steven has been amazing!! I have little to no experience playing guitar, but I'm already getting the hang of playing well known songs! He does a great job of critiquing but also making the lesson fun! He tells me exactly what I need to do and the tools I need for the following lessons, so I always have a plan AND it's all in the comfort of my own home. I would highly recommend Steven, and if you're skeptical about taking an online lesson, don't be, because the attention Steven gives during lessons makes you feel like he's right there! Happy Strumming!

Every student, at any age has their own unique projection of what the piano should do for them. I have always maintained a great relationship with my students, and worked with each one of them, as if they were the only students I have. first is to et them to understand technique, and to read both staffs. then, we run with all types of pieces and songs, classical to Jazz, to Pop ,to Spanish pieces to Guilds repertoire to recital pieces or songs. Come join me on this music adventure. I love giving recitals through out the year. Not mandatory, but I invite all to attend. I am a Guild member for 25 years also.

About Terry
I love adventure in music, for kids. First we work on technique and reading both staffs. THEN WE RUN WITH MUSIC THAT INTERESTS THEM. I have experience with every faze of pieces, with over 40 years of hands on performances.. If you are interested, I am also a Guild member for over 25 years. I love giving recitals, and include receptions afterward. I left N.Y. and 21 students to live in sunny California. My goal is to inspire piano students to love playing and enjoy the music they can make.

lets get started. I am looking forward to a great new experience. Having a piano in your home is the best gift you can receive. Digital pianos, I have also worked with. Thank you for this opportunity. hope to hear from you soon.

Aku is a talented, kind, and patient teacher. She connected remarkably well with my 4 year old daughter, who always looked forward to her weekly lesson with Aku. She progressed very quickly through her lessons, faster than you would except for someone her age, and I am sure this was because of Aku’s teaching. Aku played a duet with my daughter for her recital. She was the youngest student there and they did so well! I was so proud of her and what’s even better is that she was so excited and proud of what she accomplished over the past year. Thank you so much Aku!!!

It is with great pleasure I recommended Yelena if you are looking for piano teacher. Yelena has been my teacher for much of 2009, after i made the drcision to pursue piano lessons as an adult. AlthoughI had taken piano lessons for a couple years as a child, my knowledge of the keyboard and understanding were of music were limited. I have worked with other piano teachers since reaching childhood, but the expeirience was not inspiring
or motivational.
That all changed when i started working with Yelena.
Her passion for sharing her love of music with her studentshas been great source of joy for me. With her guidance, I am playing at a much advanced level
Then ever before, and with a deeper appriciation of what i am doing. She combines the rigth amount of theory and scale work, with learning classisl pieces.
Yelena has the patience and warms of a great teacher, and believe she would be equally good working with children as she is with adults. Her contribution to promote the love of playing music in her students is a true gift to us all.

About Gabriel C.

I remember when I started taking piano lessons as a child, I was extremely nervous to meet a new teacher and play for them. I wasn't even the painfully shy type, but something about playing music in front of a professional can be very intimidating. I had this expectation of myself to already be good, and I feared that the teacher would make me feel like I wasn't talented enough or didn't have what it took. Thankfully, I had wonderful music teachers (most of the time!) that would create an atmosphere where I felt comfortable. My lessons with my teacher, Mr. Decker, were a joy every week. Now that I myself am continuing this tradition of music instruction (10+ years of teaching experience), I know how important it is to create an environment in which the student feels at ease, and in the right frame of mind for learning and growth. Although I am very serious about achieving musical goals and making fast progress, I know that music is supposed to be fun and enjoyable. Mr. Decker was ...

About Gabriel
Greetings! My name is Gabriel, and I want to welcome you into the wonderful world of piano playing! I am an experienced teacher you can trust to take you or your child to the highest level. I've been playing piano for over 29 years (since I was three)! Growing up in a musical family, I first studied with my mother, who still teaches to this day in Orlando, FL. I studied at the University of Miami, graduating in 2008 with a Bachelors of Arts in Music. Some of my career highlights are
Performing with the Frost Wind Ensemble in Carnegie Hall in 2006.
Performing regularly with the Tommy Dorsey Orchestra. They still tour around the world under the direction of Terry Myers.
Performing with The Temptations and The Four Tops (on saxophone, my other professional instrument).
Playing at Universal Orlando's Wizarding World of Harry Potter from
2014-2018.

My teaching philosophy can be summed up in one word: Listening. I think this is the most important skill for a musician, music teacher, and music student. I listen to the student and find out what music already excites them. Then, through that music that they are already interested in, I teach them the universal fundamentals of music: first RHTYHM, then MELODY, then HARMONY. Practice can be fun when you are learning music that you love! I remember being a student myself, and being bored by many of the pieces I had to learn. Practice was drudgery at times! But, as I got older, I started making my own musical choices on what to study, and then I couldn't take myself away from practice! I look forward to my practice time every day, and I want to show you how to have that same excitement for learning and growth. I tailor my lessons to the needs of the individual student. I am always kind and patient, but I do push you to achieve your full potential! Let's get started!

I've been playing music all of my life. Growing up in a musical household inspired me to pursue and study music at a professional level. I've played solo performances and with groups for audiences large and small. Now I want to help you achieve your musical goals! I work with students of all ages to make sure they're practiced, prepared, and confident so that they can reach greater musical heights than before - and then keep going!

About Patrick
Hi! I've been playing music since I was a young child and grew up in a musical household. Exposed to many different varieties of music, musical instruments, and musicians, I found myself enveloped in a culture of music - one that I'm not about to escape from any time soon! I believe music really is a universal language, capable of bringing together people from around the world, capable of connecting people in ways never thought possible. I want to share this gift with you! My approach begins with my #1 rule: to make it fun. Too often we focus on mistakes or technical prowess and not the real reason why we play, which is to connect and share and have a good time while doing it! I have methods to teach those technical abilities and rote theories without the pain of workbooks or boring exercises. I'm ready to hear you PLAY, and I bet you are
too!
