Classical music is art music produced or rooted in the traditions of Western music. I teach music from the great classical composers such as: Antonio Vivaldi, Bach, Handel, Mozart, Beethoven and others.

About George
I am so glad you’re here!

The music lessons for young children are full of fun, interactive activities with iPads apps and traditional methods that not only help develop a strong musical foundation and build essential life skills, but offer a unique bonding experience for you and your child.

Discover for yourself why families love my innovative music lessons for kids.

YES! Music Matters!

The curriculum is built on research that proves MUSIC MATTERS. Music affects virtually every aspect of development and when young children are consistently engaged by music during the “musical window” they benefit at many levels.

What about private lessons?

Do I believe in private lessons? You bet! But I know from experience that private lessons are most valuable for older kids who have the ability to concentrate in a one-to-one setti
ng.

With this Private setting you will have a solid foundation in keyboard skills and music theory and typically excel quickly in their continued music education and when learning other instruments. The education and experiences a child has in my music program sets them up for success with private instruction.

Music Program

Builds spatial-temporal reasoning skills critical for greater success in math and science studies.

Music students out-perform non-music students on achievement tests in reading and math.

Music students receive more academic honors and awards than non-music students.

Develops social and emotional skills including the ability to relate to others and better express ideas, and less likely to have behavior/discipline problems.

I offer up to 2 recitals a year so that you can perform everything you know.

Feel free to reach out and let's setup some lessons.

Thank you, George F.

George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.

About Cody W.

Diamond Bar, CA

View Full Profile

I have played a wide variety of repertoire in classical piano from Bach, to Beethoven to Frederic Kuhlau in recitals in the past six years. I also write music in classical piano and can help students mainly with technique and expressiveness when playing.

About Cody
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me.
I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble with it in their classes.
Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and
understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music.
I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on.
I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Alesis Recital Keyboard
Music sheets
Web cam
Mac computer (MacBook Pro)
Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music paper for away lessons.
Finale for composition and music theory lessons.
Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.

*** Specialties ***
I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media.
I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music.
I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

Reviews from Others:
Gohar S. Said: Cody is a great teacher - my daughter loves learning piano now (it was difficult to convince her before).

Paul G. Said: Cody is a very knowledgeable teacher! He is very patient with students as well! I am looking forward to seeing what my own musical path will take with his help!!

Minna S. Said: Cody was very prompt in his response and made himself available so my son could take lessons. He was very polite and patient with my son. We look forward to seeing our son's progress with Cody's instructor.

Judene B. Said: Corey is a wonderful piano teacher! He is kind and supportive, and motivates you to work at your best. I highly recommend!

Grace C. Said: Cody is very patient and accommodating to my learning needs.

So, if you need lessons online, come take lessons with me! I'll help you!

As an instructor Aaron is outstanding. He's professional and has impressive attributes being a UCLA grad and participating member of the armed forces; but more so, he's encouraging to his students and in our son - he positively encouraged a passion for the trumpet and a high regard for music in general.

About Fang H.

Beaumont, CA

I would assess the student's capability and begin with the level appropriate for the student. For new students with no experience, I would start out with simple hand positioning and playing the piano firsthand. We'll learn as we go with fine details of reading notation and techniques. I will introduce one or two subject to cover for each lesson. For students that have more experience and are at the beginner level, I will introduce technical practices and assign a piece of music. As for intermediate and advance, we will cover technical practice, assigned music, and music theory.

About Fang
Hello, my name is Fang. I studied piano as my major for Undergraduate studies and have since finished my studies as of June, 2018. I am looking forward to teaching beginners or intermediate in classical training. I want to teach an all-around encompassing a strong foundation for the piano. This includes playing the piano, techniques, hand coordination, ear training, improvising, beginner theory, notation reading, and anything else that interests my students. All in all, it's about having fun and learning to have fun with the Piano.

About Dorifel A.

For young beginners, the student will be oriented to Piano through black Key pieces that explore the range of the keyboard. This is followed by the off-staff note reading which teaches the student the keyboard letter names and basic rhythms.
I am a big believer in teacher-student duets for younger kids.

When I was in college I took piano pedagogy and I learned that Playing with the beginning student is one of the best ways to improve their playing, they tend to model their playing from their teacher so that benefits alone is worth it. It does make the simple piece sounds more grown-up.

The method book that I am using is the Piano Adventures Curriculum by Faber and Faber. This method book is based on discovery, creativity, and adventures through music making. There are 4 books in each level. Lesson, Performance, Theory, and Technique.

There is also an additional supplementary book that is essential for student progress. A supplementary Library that motivates practice. The ...

Ms. Stella is amazing! My 6 year old son started taking lessons with her last year and he loves it. He has been progressing very nicely. Ms. Stella is very patient and is so great with young children. She knows how to keep their attention and make it fun for them, but also stay focused on actual technique. I love the program she is using with my son and that it is fun and not overly strict. My son has a difficult personality and can be hard to deal with at times, but Ms. Stella works so well with him and knows just how to handle his type of temperament. If you have a young child who wants to learn the piano, I highly recommend Stella!

I love to teach my students how to get to where they want to be. If they want to ultimately learn how to play well-known classics by composer’s like Beethoven, Debussy, or Bach, I’ll start them on a track to learn what’s essential in order to attain their goal. If they want to learn Disney songs or pop piano, I’ll take a different route.

To me, piano is a wonderful tool that people can use to express themselves, relax and have fun! And that is exactly what I want my students to get out of their lessons, too.

About Shannon
I’ve been playing the piano when I was 9 years old. I took private lessons for years, so I’ve been in my student’s shoes before, and I like to make lessons fun and interesting for them.

I played keyboard in my church worship band for several years throughout high school, and I took a few music courses in college.

Nowadays, I am content to play for myself and my family. It calms and relaxes me, and they enjoy the music flowing through the house.

I absolutely love working with kids and teens; I also currently serve as a high school leader at my church’s youth group every week, and love being able to invest in the teenagers there.
