Greetings! Alec is the Piano Teacher for Kids in Orange County. Along with tutoring piano, he is also a music composer for film, video-games, and multi-media. With over 15 years of piano-playing experience, and 5 years of teaching, Alec is happy and excited to achieve whatever your child's goals are in playing the piano.

Within the first few lessons, you or your child will be able to:
(1) Understand the Foundations of the Piano
(2) Effectively Read Notes
(3) Recognize Patterns in Music
(4) Use Both Hands Fluidly Within a Song

Alec's foremost philosophy in teaching piano is following the student's goals and dreams, not his own. While curriculum work is certainly vital, it is far more important that his students receive help they need in accomplishing their biggest aspirations in music. Whether your child wants to be a music composer, rock-star, or just playing for their loved ones, Alec can bring them closer to that goal.

Alec's promise to you is to ...

From the first time Alec met my grandson he was understanding, encouraging, extremely patient and knowledgeable. The next lesson assignments were clearly written out with the expectation that time would be allowed for daily practice.

Thank you, Alec
Sarah Jones
I got so much value for my daughter's piano lessons. I was surprised when she played her own songs to me. On top of that, Alec was very on top of things when it came to lesson planning, homework, and attendance. If you are new to piano, I would recommend signing up with Alec.

Piano lessons are an excellent way to engage all parts of your brain while having fun.

My lessons include: note reading, technique, music theory, ear training, and musicianship.

Although I can teach a variety of genres, my specialty is in classical music.

Ivan is the best, he really worked with my daughter and she enjoys her lessons a lot. She's learned a lot in a short period of time. Ivan is very effective with the online format we chose to use during the pandemic. Couldn't be happier.

Best piano teacher ever!
Gerardo
I would like to highly recommend Ivan Shallal as a music teacher for children. Ivan is a gifted piano teacher. He is very well-respected in Rochester Hills and Troy, Michigan. This community is extremely fortunate to have a music teacher of his caliber to teach in this area.

Ivan is passionate about music. His love for the art is evident in his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is exceedingly patient with all students, encourages them, and coaxes the very best effort from each one. Although he is one of the best music teachers in the zone, his prices are extremely reasonable. In my opinion, he is worth every penny he charges, and I certainly believe I have received excellent service for my money.

It is my great pleasure to recommend Ivan Shallal as a music teacher. I am tremendously grateful to him for everything he has taught my daughter.

Teaching all levels, from beginning through advanced. I recommend adults to take one-hour lessons every other week. Children do better with half hour lessons every week. Ask about renting a harp!

Anne is patient and insanely talented. She translates her skills into understandable, bite sized chunks for her students. She’s great fun to work with and inspires me to be better.
Ally M.
Anne is a fantastic teacher who brings so much warmth, patience, and skill to each lesson! She took me from a complete novice who didn't even know how to properly pluck a string to being able to impress family and friends with familiar songs. She doesn't have you go out and spend a ton on books or materials either, which I've experienced while learning other musical instruments. Anne provides very detailed assignment notes with each lesson too, which she then emails so you can have something tangible to refer to while practicing instead of having to take notes yourself or keep it all in your head somehow. Highly recommend taking lessons from one of the best!

Our first lesson was fantastic !! Anne made our 8year old completely comfortable with the lesson plan .... super friendly ..!
