Classical Piano

About MaryAnn
Music is my passion, and I love to share it with others! I have been a musician almost my entire life. I began taking piano lessons in grade school and voice lessons in middle school. I continued to study throughout high school and eventually college. I graduated in music from The Ohio State University. I went on to teach music in the public schools as well as private piano and voice lessons. When not teaching, I spend most of my time performing by acting, singing, dancing and modeling. Some past performances include Company; Jekyll and Hyde; The Wizard of Oz; Meet Me In St. Louis; Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs; and Grease. I recently relocated to Los Angeles and am excited to share my passion for music with you!

Classical Piano

About Ray
Hello!

My name is Ray, I'm 30 years old, and was born in Queens, NY. I studied classical music for many years as a youngster at the Aaron Copeland School of Music college preparatory program. During this program I was introduced to Jazz, and around the same time began experimenting with synthesizers. I went on to study Electronic Production & Design at Berklee College of Music in Boston, and quickly became a very sought after studio musician and performer.

I've been successfully teaching many instruments and proficiency levels for 16+ years now, and can say with pride that teaching is my passion, and I anticipate it being a very important part of the rest of my life.

I enjoy reading nonfiction books on science, math, and philosophy, and am building a career as a pop music producer.

*** Lesson Details ***
My music lessons
are unique for three main reasons:

1. I have a very deep understanding of music, sound, and theory, and feel music to be one of my native languages.

2. I have devoted considerable amounts of time and energy studying neuroscience, which has greatly improved my understanding of the learning process.

3. I have been blessed with the tremendous amount of patience necessary to guide a student through the necessary steps it takes to learn at whatever pace is optimal, in order to maximize the efficiency of the learning process for each individual.

*** Equipment ***
Students must have their own instrument, and purchase their own materials (books, etc). From time to time I make my way to a local music shop, and am happy to purchase materials for reimbursement.

*** Specialties ***
Classical music is my background, and what I believe to be the most cognitively and emotionally fulfilling style of music to study and play. That said, I'm also a big fan of pop music (as well as other genres), and encourage students to enjoy learning their favorite songs from the radio.

My understanding of music theory is extremely thorough, and I'm happy to incorporate as much or as little of it as the student's interest dictates, nevertheless maintaining the minimal amount of theory necessary to get the most out of learning music and the instrument.

Thanks for checking out my profile! Please contact me with any additional questions you may have, as well as to inquire about day/time availability. I'll do my best to get back to you right away (usually within a few hours).

My son and daughter both take from Ray and they love him!!! My daughter started with him after she had had 2 other teachers and she improved immediately. She loves going to Ray because he teaches her to play the songs that she likes. Now she plays so many songs for memory!! My son loves going to piano and is always excited to see Ray.

Learn the basic fundamentals as a beginner: note reading, good posture at the piano, ear training, playing by ear, improvisation and making music out of the notes.

More advanced students will learn musical expression, phrasing, technique for ease of playing and how to be a better sight reader.

About Katarina
I have four years of experience teaching all ages, from age 4 to eighty. Since that time, I have taught over 50 students and can teach all levels and abilities. I also do ABRSM testing preparation. I can teach either at a student's home or at my studio. I have a passion for music that I want to share with my students.

I am a masters in music student at Cal State Fullerton. I graduated in 2017 with my Bachelors in Music from UC Irvine. I studied with Nina Scolnik, a Juilliard graduate and an outstanding piano pedagogue. I recently received the Tierney Scholarship at UCI.

I transferred from Pasadena City College where I was a top student in the program, winning several music awards, including the Piano Accompanying Award, Robert Westerbeck scholarship, Honors in Music, Freshman Honors, the Old Town piano competition, and Dean'
s Honors.

Excellent teacher who has been training my daughter in classical piano for the past 3 years. Anahit has an incredibly vast knowledge of piano repertoire, technique and performance. She has gotten my daughter active in the Certificate of Merit program of California and understands how to properly prepare students to achieve high marks in all aspects of piano study.

I have been taking piano lessons with Anahit for 2,5 years. I was recommended by an acquaintance, whose technique I admired and I also saw the improvement immediately after she started taking classes with Anahit. I am so glad I made the decision to commit full time and let Anahit work her magic. She has certainly taken me to new levels of knowledge, skill and technique. If anyone is serious about playing the piano, especially as a career, look no further. Aside being a master of her craft, she is kind, professional and polite. I highly recommend her!

Anahit is an amazing piano instructor. She instills a felling of confidence in students. She also has a very extensive repertoire that almost seems endless. I would recommend her to anyone of any age that wants to learn how to play the piano. She teaches from the basics to very advanced levels. She is also very committed to her job, and rarely misses lessons. Her lessons are very professional and private.

I have been teaching piano for a year, and have played piano for 6 years. I travel to student's homes in Santa Clarita, and the San Fernando Valley. My goal is to share music with my students and to spark an interest in them so that they can express themselves through music.

Student must have access to a keyboard instrument for daily practice.

I've played piano since I was 5 years old. Playing piano has greatly influenced my life, as I went to college for piano and composition. I love the piano and I love teaching piano. I teach all levels of piano with an emphasis on performance technique, practice technique, theory, and creativity. I encourage students to explore their own musical feelings and voice. I teach all genres of piano- not only Classical. If a student wants to learn to accompany or write their own music, I can help! If a student is interested in traditional Irish piano accompaniment, I can teach that!

About Connor
I'm a film composer by trade, but I love teaching as well. I love sharing my passion for music with others. I have a BM from Appalachian State University in piano performance and music theory/composition. I also have an MFA in music composition for the screen from Columbia College Chicago. I studied abroad in Ireland for a summer and learned traditional Irish music. I've been playing piano and composing since I was a young child, and picked up folk instruments along the way. Folk music has been a constant source of joy in my life, and I am continually learning more about it. Music is what gets me out of bed in the morning!

What makes piano lessons with me unique is my wide interests,experiences, and passions within music. I've studied classical and jazz and have a degree in pop music which enables me to teach in any genre. I also work hard to personalize each lesson and really get to know my students learning styles.

About Rees
I am a professional multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and producer. I graduated from USC Thornton School of Music with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance, specifically within Popular Music. Students can expect their lessons to be highly personalized based on their interests and learning styles. Having operated in so many facets musically, I know how much depth is involved in being a complete musician and I encourage my students to be lifelong music lovers. I've performed alongside wide ranging acts such as John Fogerty, Glenn Frey, The Beach Boys, X-Ambassadors, and Diplo, and I've been mentored by greats such as Patrice Rushen and Glen Ballard. Knowing the value that mentorship has played in my musical journey encourages me to pay-it-forward. I love working with students who are as curious and passionate as I am.

I am a pianist who plays across genres! I teach classical, pop, jazz, RnB, funk, country, you name it! In Michigan where I'm from, I taught students all of these styles. My goal is to tailor our lessons to exactly what the student wants for their piano playing. As a composer, I have experience in teaching students to write and record their own music! Again, whether you want to produce your own pop song or compose/arrange for an orchestra, I will show you how!

About Theodore
I'm a composer, pianist/keyboardist, and drummer who likes to think out-of-the-box, but not without knowing what it's like to have been in the box. Everyone has to figure out what they want for themselves, and everyone has a different journey to figuring out what they want. In teaching composition, piano and drum performance, I'm here to tailor music lessons to the individual, based on what inspires that person most, and what they want to accomplish most musically.

Since age 14, I've played thousands of stages across the US with different gospel artists, was commissioned by the Grand Rapids Symphony of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and the West Michigan Flute Orchestra, scored a film by Symmetry Films, and scored multiple theatre productions. And after all that, my number one goal through music is to help people find what inspires them.

Our two sons (10 and 8) had lessons with Theo for two years. Having worked with several music teachers with our older children, I can say with honesty that Theo is the most effective instructor I've known. he's very attentive to students' individual approaches, and structures lessons around specific interests and needs. For instance, one of our kids showed a strong interest in composition, so Theo helped him record his ideas, then they transcribed the music together. Both of our children grew quickly in skill and understanding during their time with Theo. We look forward to connecting with him again on this platform!
