Corona, CA

View Full Profile

I have been teaching the wonderful instrument of the piano for four years.

For children, I use the Alfred Piano Series lesson books that includes lessons and homework in a fun and engaging way to promote retention.

For beginners, I use the publication A New Approach to Keyboard Harmony to learn chord progressions, sequences, modulations, realization of both figured and un-figured basses, basic improvisation, and score reading. Learning these techniques will help transition students seamlessly to various styles and genres that incorporate the piano, helping you learn and love the piano without frustrating stoppages that often lead us away from lesson continuity.

From there, I utilize the Hal Leonard Student Piano Library series to promote chord inversion, syncopation, arpeggiation, pedaling, and key centering.

About Milton
Hey there, everyone!

My name is Milton Carl Jackson II and I teach vocal, guitar, piano, and musical theatre lessons in the Inland Empire area.

I help those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young tap into their own soul through music so that they may help others find theirs as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American & African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a recent graduate of American University with a Master's of Education in Business Education
, I have come in contact and learned from a vast amount of different musicians and educators. A classically-trained bass-baritone with roots in R&B, Soul, Rock, Pop, and Jazz, I have aspirations to help each and every student realize their full musical potential.

If you're looking for a teacher who will motivate and inspire you not only to learn your instrument of choice, but also how to perform it (whether on the big stage or in your living room for the family) and record it as well, I'm the perfect teacher for you. Learning to sing, play, and act beautifully doesn't have to be difficult -- we'll work on finding your voice or your style, all while having fun along the way!

I teach in-studio, in-home, and online lessons, so we can be flexible with the lesson type and schedule!

This is a perfect chance for you or your child who can't stop singing around the house or has dreams of shredding on the guitar or twinkling on the ivories to learn the fundamentals of music, start something new that keeps them or you focused, and have fun while doing it!

Feel free to contact me at show contact info for any questions and check out my student reviews and qualifications.

I look forward to meeting you and accompanying you or your child on your musical journey!!

I teach beginning piano for children through adults.

While I will provide music when possible, the student is responsible for purchasing the bulk of the lesson material. For the first lesson, I will bring a range of levels with me so we can find the right fit for the student.

In addition to learning your favorite songs, we will focus on:

- Learning to read music
- Sight reading
- Treble and bass clef
- Scales
- Proper fingering
- Basic music theory
-Playing melodies and chords
-Right and left hands independence
- Singing and playing, if desired

Required materials:
Piano Lessons:
-Piano or keyboard at home
-Method/Lesson books -- I teach from the Faber series. We will decide which books to use in our first lesson. I ask that the student purchases the books (I will provide an Amazon link if needed) which will range in cost from $10 - $20 per level.
-Supplementary sheet music may be required-- I will provide from my library whenever possible.

About Charlotte
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, t
oo!).

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

About Minoo
My teaching philosophy is based in the belief that learning music should be fun and exciting! I always encourage my students to pursue the kind of music that they find most appealing, rather than using the same curriculum and method book. I teach private lessons and have had the experience of working with hundreds of students ranging from beginners with no experience to advanced players.
I go to my students In all over Orange county and Corona.

Redlands, CA

During my lessons, my student should expect to leave feeling confident and that he or she has learned something new. My students will always be making constant progress!

About Katie
I have been teaching young students piano for seven years. I have completed my education for a music education degree, and am the former president of the Cal State Piano Society. I have been playing piano for nineteen years and love every aspect of music. My goal is to pass my passion for music onto my students, and allow them to develop a deep appreciation and understanding for all genres.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a strong believer in making the learning process fun and enjoyable. I want my students to be motivated to learn and practice as much as possible. My teaching style consists of starting with the basics (technique, theory, and reading music) then graduating to style and phrasing. My students will always leave our lessons feeling accomplished and confident. Learning an instrument is hard work, but with enough effort a
nd commitment, anything is possible!

*** How Long of a Lesson? ***
For very young beginners, I recommend 15 minutes. For beginners, I recommend 30 minutes. For intermediate, we can do 30 to 45 to 60 minutes. For advanced, you would benefit from 45 to 60 minutes. If you are beginner and want to have a 45 or 60 minute lesson, each lesson will focus on any of these categories: technique, repertoire, theory, ear training, and listening.

***Cancellation Policy***
Please notify me at least ONE HOUR before the lesson if you need to cancel to avoid charges. I may or may not be able to reschedule, and I will allow up to one month for a makeup lesson.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Baldwin Upright Piano
Various Piano Books
Metronome
Internet access for resources

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect all music students to provide a piano and the required materials (i.e. metronome and specific music books)

Tutoring: Please provide the class work, assignments, and projects for the subjects that need tutoring (if possible).

*** Specialties ***
I believe that technique is very important when it comes to piano. I start with teaching the basic scales, hand positions, and good posture. Then I begin teaching music theory, in which the student learns how to read notes, rhythms, dynamics, etc. Once the student becomes proficient in reading and technique, I give them more difficult pieces in order to work on style, voicing, and phrasing.

I have been teaching piano since I graduated high school, and will continue to do so until I graduate with a music major in college. I teach out of plenty of different books, depending on age level and learning style. I teach from my own home, the music store in Redlands, and can even travel for lessons for a small fee. What I teach and the way I teach is dependent on the student, and what I believe will be useful for them moving forward. But, the most important aspect is fun!

About Dominic
Hi! My name is Dominic and I'm a lifelong lover of music. I've found through experience with studios, other musicians, and professional teachers, that teaching music is what I want to do. I have a huge passion to help students stay interested and engaged, because I believe that if a student loves what they are doing, they WILL become great at it. I would love to cultivate that success! Students will be taught theory, technique, and performance skills. These skills are vital to a students growth, and will be a major focus in my lessons. They will also learn to play music that they enjoy, alongside practical repertoire. I teach beginning piano, violin, ukulele, and guitar lessons. If you're looking for someone with a flexible schedule, lessons offered on and offline, and a passion for teaching new skills, consider me as your teacher!

Piano Lessons should be FUN and something that the student looks forward to! It is NOT as hard to learn how to Play Piano as some people think it is, and it doesn't take years before you're able to play he songs YOU love! I have more than 40 years experience playing piano and have taught more than 100 students (kids AND adults) how to Play Piano! And taking lessons has never been as easy as it is now with webcams and an internet connection making it possible to take lessons from ANYWHERE!

About Teresa (Teri)
I am excited to have the opportunity to teach piano lessons to students who want to enrich their lives by learning this magical instrument! I can say with 100% confidence that I can customize an individual course of 'study' that will make it possible for ANY student to quickly and easily play piano utilizing methodology geared toward the student's own particular learning style.

Music is a language that, once the basics are understood, is simple to become fluent at. I, myself, began taking piano lessons when I was 12 years old and continued studying music in college where I studied piano pedagogy (teaching) and commercial recording arts in Southern California. Combining the traditional formal training I received in music theory, technique, composition, and performance with the ART of improvisation and 'playing by ear', I have developed
a method that makes it fun and simple to learn how to master the piano!

I look forward to interacting with many students here at Takelessons.com---including YOU!

Ms. Cynthia has been working with my two kids (6 & 8) and me (age withheld) on a weekly basis for two months now and things are going very well. My children practice on their own with minimal prompting on my part.

My 8-year old, who had previously taken some introductory lessons with another instructor and quit, asked to have lessons with Ms. Cynthia after seeing me and my six-year-old take a few lessons with her. The change in my 8-year old has been dramatic, for whom learning piano has somehow gone from being a chore to something fun, and I give significant credit to Ms. Cynthia for that. We look forward to continuing to work with her.
