My name is Ghislain, I am 25 years and have a Master in Dance Performance from the Conservatory of music and dance of Paris. I am also French and arrived in September with a full scholarship to study dance at UCLA.

I have studied piano for 10 years at the Conservatoire de Nice (South France), have the experience of teaching private lessons in France and am seeking piano students of every level and age. The past year, I have taught 15 beginners from the age of 5 to 60+ in Paris and had so much fun doing it. I can also teach for adults with a intermediate or advanced level.

With beginners, I tend to put my focus on teaching fundamental notions such as being able to read music notes and understanding rhythm; two elements that are essential to be able to play the piano. And within a few weeks, I can make anyone play piano following a music score !

Tania M.

As a violin teacher, I love helping my students achieve their goals!
I believe not only the results matter, but also the journey. I focus my lessons on helping the student learn and have a deeper understanding of music theory, harmony, rhythm, technique, and how all those apply to the violin. I specialize in classical music and I use methods such as Suzuki, Essential Elements, and many others to help you become a better violinist. The lessons take place in a relaxed and fun setting :)

About Tania

I have been playing the violin for more than 20 years but my love for teaching started about 10 years ago! I became fascinated with teaching as not only I have learned so much about myself as a musician and person but most importantly I have learned how to help my students become better musicians.

Tania has been so amazing. We have only had one in home session before the COVID-19 restrictions came about. She has basically had to teach both myself and my daughter how to tune and play the violin. Her patience and creativity have been so helpful. My daughter is 6, and her attention span is not the greatest. I really appreciate Tania's patience and ability to keep her focused and engaged.
Stefan
I am an adult learner, I started with a different instructor but I was frustrated with a number of things. I contacted Tania with my frustrations and then started lessons. She has been a joy to work with. Her first question to me was what my goals were. I really appreciated this, because I am an adult who has carved out 30-60 minutes each day to practice. So I definitely have goals. The overall goal of improving is nicely balanced with pieces and styles that I find interesting and enjoyable. My previous teacher was not very attentive to body mechanics and so I was hitting a wall both in terms of ability and comfort. I mentioned to him my back was hurting and he thought I was making conversation rather than asking for help. I didn't even need to tell Tania my back was hurting after practicing, because she starting suggesting tweaks to my mechanics after watching me play for just a few minutes. Playing immediately became more comfortable and enjoyable. Tania understands that playing violin is parts listening, mechanics, theory and playing. When I'm having trouble with one we will discuss parts of the others and a first it didn't seem related then suddenly I see a convection between the different parts and the connection makes my playing better. I would absolutely recommend Tania. She has a deep understanding of the topic and makes learning violin funner and easier. Scheduling has always been easy.
Andrew
Tania has been a great teacher for my son. He started learning violin with the Suzuki method and studied with a Suzuki teacher for about four years before stopping lessons. He became interested in violin again in middle school and decided he wanted to take private lessons while in 7th grade. Tania had no trouble getting him back on track, picking up with some Book 2 pieces and moving on to Book 3. She has helped him with his bowing, vibrato and shifting, and his sound has really improved. She also has helped him learn to read better and has introduced some basic music theory into lessons. My son really likes his lessons, and feels that he is learning what he needs. Overall, I like her approach, which I think works very well for this level. She is an excellent musician, and this comes through in her teaching.

You can play what you can hear. I work on developing the student's mental concept of how a particular piece of music sounds. This solid musical thinking translates into a reliable technique. Technique should come naturally and not be overly thought, but I will explain what seems to work for me and analyze the student's playing.

Beginning students might start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures'. Lessons should include some study of theory or harmony. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.

My adult students say I am insightful.

About Graham

I am a musician with a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance. I studied with Philip Thomson, Laura Silverman, Douglas Hicks, and Eugene Mancini. I have experience teaching young children, older adults, and those in between. I am patient and encouraging. Presently, I am available to teach online

Vocal Lessons will cover technique and breathing exercises.
We will learn what to avoid and what techniques to use to best utilize your vocal abilities.

We will cover improvisation, and I will help you discover and organize practice drills that are fun and inspirational. We will listen to songs in order to interpret song meaning, to hear major and minor tonalities, and to listen for dynamic changes.

Students will have opportunities to learn songs that they select as well as learning new songs that specifically help build strength in problem areas.

Students will be taught how to prepare for performances, in order to conquer anxiety and positively effect and enhance practice sessions.
There will also be a portion of the lesson that covers Microphones, Recording and Microphone placement so that students can learn to hear their voice thru recorded software or through a PA system, to create a more well rounded, confident performer!

About Rachel

I started my musical path in a Ballet Studio. I fell in love with the crackle of the vinyl record playing as I learned to listen and dance with the rhythm. I started playing the guitar when I was in elementary and took classical lessons until I was a teenager.I really enjoy the art of practice
