View Full Profile

Each lesson is customized to individuals needs. I am comfortable teaching classical music because that is what I'm trained in. However, if a student wants to learn pop songs or New Age music I can accommodate them too. My emphasis is on sight reading and theory of music so children as well as adults can handle easy as well as more advanced pierces with their learnings.

About Simona
I am a graduate of Conservatory of Music in Iran. I have been playing piano since I was 6 years old. My background and training is in classical music but I am very comfortable working with students who are interested in popular, jazz, broadway or new age music.
I am also a kindermusick educator which gave me the opportunity to work with babies and moms introducing the notion of music and rhythm to them with singing and introduction of instruments.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am classically trained and I start by introducing some theory and notes to students. We will start playing songs from the first lesson. My goal is to keep the lessons fun and exciting. I am very laid back and love to have fun with the students. My background is in music and I have worked with toddlers as well as older children. I am very patient and flex
ible with my students. I would like them to play what interests them. I do offer
annual recitals which is a good motivation for the kids to work hard and earn trophies and medals. Students can expect to have great sight reading as well as be able to play basic songs after 3 months.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons are held in my private studio or in students' homes

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano or Keyboard

*** Specialties ***
I use the classical approach to teaching. I start by introducing notes and familiarizing students with notations and dynamics as well as theory of music and proceed by teaching them songs

She has given performances on both instruments throughout her music career. Having attended elementary, middle and high schools that were attached to a music conservatory, she has been a professionally trained musician since a young age. She started to provide private flute lessons, piano lessons, aural skills and music theory classes already while in high school in China. In the US, Dr. Lu has appeared in many Hollywood movie sound tracks, she has also performed as principal flutist with Beverly Hills Symphony Orchestra, Hollywood Sinfonietta, Los Angeles Sinfonietta, Debut Symphony Orchestra, San Jose Youth Symphony, Fremont Flute Ensemble, US

Lesson Details:

As a teacher, I love to see my students take pride in their improvements and strive to be a leader. I have taught many students at all levels. From teaching them how to read music while providing the fundamentals of piano playing, to college level of auditioning for significant competitions. I particularly like to focus on students who are interested in band and orchestra at school. It’s the joy of teaching to see kids marvel at different tones and musicality they can produce.

For all my lessons I include music theory and ask that students try their best to learn how music is connected and formed. Learning music is a rewarding process, so please be patient and open-minded. Feel free to ask me any questions and I look forward to meeting you!

About Yuh-Jiun
-Bachelor of Music in Flute performance - University of California, Santa Barbara (2009-2013)

-Master of Music in Flute performance - Bob Cole Conservatory of Music, CSULB (2015-present)

Current Principle Flute of Bob Cole Conservatory Symphony Orchestra and Wind Symphony.

Current Flute player in Bob Cole Conservatory Wind Quintet.

Current and past students include: principle flute of Diamond Bar High School Wind Ensemble, principle flute of Pacific Symphony of Youth Wind Ensemble, 1st flute of Claremont Youth Symphony Orchestra.

I am a music teacher and musician in the Los Angeles area. I was born in Taipei, Taiwan. I started my music education at the age of three; it started with clapping, rolling around on the floor, and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade. I was fascinated by the magic that music possesses; as Rimsky-K
orsakov unfold a tale of an enchanted land, with camel-riding merchants, bazaar, and princesses, without uttering a single word. I went on to learn a few instruments: xylophone, three different kinds of recorders, and then all this eventually led to flute.

I started studying flute at the age of 8, and it has been a delightful journey. In high school, I have participated in marching band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, and symphonic orchestra. I was also part of two prestigious local youth orchestra, the Orange County Youth Symphony Orchestra, and the Claremont Young Musician Orchestra.

I obtained my Bachelor of Music (Flute Performance) degree from University of California, Santa Barbara. I grew immensely as a musician during my time in Santa Barbara, I studied under Jill Felber, and I was able to expand my repetoire and gain considerable experience. I even played at the local farmers market as a street performer during the weekends. After graduation , I traveled to my home country Taiwan to study another great musician - Anders Norell, the principal flutist/flautist of the Taiwan Philharmonic. It was another great opportunity as I was able to garner teaching experiences, as well as attending master classes of great flutist/flautist such as Emmanuel Pahud.

As a music teacher, I encourage and inspire. I am foremost a music lover, then flutist and flute teacher. I aspire to spread the abundance of joy and beauty that music has bring into my life. As the great conductor and cellist Pablo Casals puts it: "Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart". Therefore, whether if you are a wobbly toddler, high school marching band enthusiast (as I once was), house wife looking for a new hobby, full time employee who always had a love for classical music, or grandmother who is looking for something other than crochet, join me on this wonderful journey.

"The pursuit of music would provide you a life time of joy".

My 9 year old daughter started singing lessons with Stephanie about 3 months ago. She wanted to improve her vocal range as a hobby, since she and her friends love to Karaoke. In this short period of time, not only had her singing improved, but she is now much more poised, confident, and has great breathing and projection in her normal speaking as well. Stephanie has been wonderful in making this process so easy and enjoyable. Her private studio is cozy and accommodating. My daughter looks forward to her lessons every week. We highly recommend her.

Music theory can be very difficult. If you need help with high school or early college level theory assignments or general studying, I would love to help. I really do love music theory, even though many musicians despise it. It's one of the reasons I went to college for music composition! I love the language of music.

About Andrew
Hello! I've been teaching music full-time for the past 10 years. I graduated music school in 2008, holding a Bachelors in music from Columbia College Chicago, a thriving arts school in the heart of downtown Chicago. There, I primarily concentrated on music composition and guitar, while also studying piano and drums. My parents were musicians and school teachers, so music teaching is very much in my blood. I've been playing and writing songs in bands since I was 12 years old. I recorded 3 original albums in high school, which is a very unique thing. I played shows everywhere in Chicago through college and upon graduating started a successful band called Minor Characters. We worked on albums with Beau Sorenson (Death Cab for Cutie, Superchunk, Bob Mould) at April Base Studios (Bon Iver), toured extensively, and was featured at South By Sout
hwest Music Festival in 2012 and 2013. This past year I spent recording a number of online guitar courses that are available through my business Make Some Noise, Inc.

I did all of this while maintaining a full schedule of music students, where I put on recitals at cool music venues and had kids and adults play together in duos, trios, or bands. I'd love to do the same thing here in Los Angeles!
