About Jessie
Thank you for your interest in lessons! I hope to help you achieve your goals and improve your skills, whether you're looking for music lessons, help in math, or need someone to proofread your essay before you turn it in. Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career, and the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of knowledge that will always enrich their lives.

I have been tutoring and teaching private lessons for over five years, and currently have over 40 active students. I received my bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on vocal performance at the Unive
rsity of Redlands in 2011, and my Associate of Arts degree in 2008 from College of the Desert. I teach online, locally, and at my studio, and cover a variety of subjects such as voice, music, theater, piano, math, english, music theory, just to name a few.

For academic tutoring (i.e. math, theory, vocabulary) I work on helping the student understand their homework and help prepare them for tests. I can also provide worksheets if necessary and am prepared to demonstrate problem areas in different ways if needed, because everyone learns differently. For voice, piano, music, and acting lessons I teach the student based on what their current level is. If you have no experience, that's okay! My lessons are uniquely designed to fit your needs no matter what level you may be.

As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women, Seussical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer in churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to stay active in the performance industry, because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it!

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life they will achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having fun doing it!

*Note: My home office has a lot of stairs and two cats. If you are disabled or have a feline allergy, please consider in-home lessons or lessons online.

About Charlotte
**Please note: My studio is based in Fallbrook. For in-home lessons, I have a 5 mile travel radius (schedule permitting)**

Hello! My name is Charlotte, and I am a San Diego vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. I hold a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where I honed my vocal jazz chops before branching out into the East Coast folk, blues and indie rock scene. I moved to Southern California in 2011, when I took a brief hiatus from performing to focus on commercial songwriting and composition and teaching voice, piano and guitar privately. I am currently once again performing in multiple groups in the San Diego area.

My areas of expertise are contemporary styles and genres. I put a strong emphasis on developing healthy technique alongside strong musicianship skills in a fun
environment! With over 10 years experience working with kids and teenagers, I am passionate about teaching all ages (adults, too!).

With all instruments, the student will learn (please click on specific Subjects for more details on the way each instrument is taught):

-Musicianship/ear training
-Reading music & sight singing
-Proper technique
-Building repertoire
-Performance techniques
-Music Theory

*** Specialties ***
Jazz, rock, folk, pop, and musical theater. Songwriting (lyric and musical composition), learning to sing while playing an instrument.

About Alex
Trained and educated (MM) in Russia and USA, over 20 years experience in teaching. Individual approach to the course development based on student personality, goals, skills.

Major instruments are piano, classical guitar, accordion.
Student must have own instrument and desire to learn!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe many of my students enjoy my class and are able to achieve a higher skill level because I make it a point to personally motivate them. I give them personalized goals to reach and/or tailored practice techniques.Based on response, I may offer words of encouragement or tips such as how to ease sore muscles or an alternative way to execute a technique they are finding extra difficult.

I make it a point to not just teach music grammar and/or fundamentals of music, but to include the importance of the sound of
music strategies to enhance their skill development.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Yamaha Clavinova, piano
Classical guitar "Takamine"
Accordion "Gullietti"

*** Specialties ***
Accordion, piano, classical guitar Traditional Russian School all styles and genres. Levels: beginner through advanced!

Taught violin lessons for SDSU Music Department Community Music School
Motion Pictures including Oscar Winning Soundtrack “The Usual Suspects”

FORMER STUDENTS: I have a former student who plays on Broadway! Other former students are working on Master’s Degrees, are professional violinists, orchestra teachers, conductors, chamber music players, in Youth Symphonies and have gone on to study music in Europe, play in a Symphony Orchestra, one is a violin maker, one is a fiddler that has played in bands, one teenager beat out 14 other violinists when auditioning for the first violins in a Youth Symphony. Some former students now teach violin students of their own,
I am a "Grand Teacher"! There are many more, I have lots of pictures of students from over the years.

BEGINNING STUDENTS: (**Please note, if you plan to buy violin let me help! It must be suitable and properly sized!) Brand new? I can show a beginner how to play a song at the first lesson, ask how! I start using Suzuki Books, how to read music, scales, vibrato, and shifting, later adding Introducing the Positions, Sevcik , Kruetzer, etc. I love teaching children and teenagers, but some of my favorite students are Adult Beginners or Adults that are returning to violin lessons again after many years.

CONTINUING STUDENTS: Be prepared to play scales and your most recent repertoire. I can help with Youth Symphony music -College Music Department Audition –Jury for a Music Major. I love to teach music and I am a dedicated teacher.

PLAYING THE VIOLIN IS FUN! An orchestra of my own young students played for my own wedding. I currently am teaching a set of triplets in my studio. I have gone Christmas caroling on horseback with my violin. I played fiddle music with my string quartet as the Bride rode up the isle on a horse. I have performed at Renaissance Faires. When Los Angeles Rock DJ Dave Richards, the host of top rated 101.5 KGB-FM morning show Dave, Shelly & Chainsaw was getting married he chose my Rock String Quartet to play at his own wedding.

Anna was amazing, we got so much accomplished during our hour session. She was able to take her highly skilled experience and assess exactly where our daughter was at. Her manorism was as kind as a mother with the high skill of a professional. She was patient, kind and encouraging. She went the extra mile and her passion for the violin is palpable and transfers over to the student. Her love of God shines through her instruction even without her saying so, I value this.5 stars from our family

Ms. Ahn is an amazing teacher! My son has been taking lessons with her for almost two years and I'm happy to see my son improving. She sometimes choose songs and pieces that my son would enjoy! Also, she asks my son if there is any song he would like to sing and she can accompany for him right away after hearing the songI I would definitely recommend Ms. Ahn for piano lessons! She travels to our home as well.

Hello,

I am a graduate from McGill University, where I received my Master of Music in Flute Performance. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor of Music in Flute Performance from Northwestern University. I live in Long Beach, CA and can teach any level of flute/piccolo students.

I have been teaching privately since 2008. I love to teach both students who are planning on pursuing music and taking auditions as well as students who are learning an instrument just for fun! I adjust my expectations of students accordingly. Parents are welcome to sit in on lessons if they wish.

I am an easy-going teacher, but I do expect my students to practice and come prepared to every lesson! If students are prepared, lessons are much more fun for everyone :)

A student who studies with Sarah will inevitably learn what it means to be passionate about music. I have known Sarah for a few years now and have seen her perform in solo recitals as well as with large and small ensembles. Her enthusiasm for sharing what music means to her is unmistakable and contagious. She is a very diligent student of music and and always wants to keep learning. I love working with her in any context and highly recommend her for absolute beginning students up to advanced students.

However much you might want to sing, you might have made the decis
5 Games for Teaching Kids Piano
Piano is considered an umbrella instrument, meaning, teaching kids to play piano helps them understand music more thoroughly, no matter what instrument they want to play later on. Even most singers first learn the basics of music theory and notation on the piano. Piano lessons at an early age lay out the basics of music-making in black and white (quite literally!). The great news is that you don't need to know anything about playing piano to inspire your children to want to learn. Below are a ha
