Private Piano Teacher

I've been teaching piano for three years. I specialize in beginning to intermediate pianists and love using games to learn notes, written activities, duets, and pop songs to enrich students' learning experience. I use the Music Tree series for children ages 5-9, and for older children and adults, I use Alfred's Piano Library curriculum.

About Corinne

Corinne is a friendly, caring, instructor and provides a stress-free learning environment. All styles, levels and ages are welcome. She teaches pop, musical theatre, classical, and jazz.

Corinne holds a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Vocal Studies from Michigan State University and enjoys teaching children and adults how to sing. All levels, styles, and ages are welcome. :)

Corinne was a vocal director for Rock and Ridicule, a rock and roll musical performed at the Acme Comedy Theatre in Hollywood. She also was the music director for Act I Children's Theatre in Sherman Oaks. Currently, Corinne is music directing an after school musical theatre class at Wilbur Elementary School in Tarzana.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are fairly laid-back. I use the Alfred's book series for piano students. For voice students, I tend to st

ick to genres the students are interested in learning and choose songs based on the student's abilities and levels and work up from there.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, music stands, music

*** Travel Equipment ***
None. I expect piano students to have a keyboard or piano at home. Voice students will not need any special equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I hold a degree in Jazz Vocal Studies and I also specialize in musical theatre.

Corinne is a wonderful teacher! She is patient and has such a positive energy. I always leave my lesson feeling better than when I came in. She's very knowledgeable and wants the best for all her students. She can teach any age! I'm a 25 year old beginner and thought it would be difficult to learn and keep up with playing the piano, but Corinne supports and inspires me. I can't recommend Corinne enough.

I have been wanting to play an instrument for such a long time, but never had the motivation to try it, until recently. Wanting to play Piano was a spur of the moment decision for me. I googled piano teachers in my area and Corinne was one of the first people to pop up. After reading all her rave reviews, I decided to give it a go. I was so nervous for my first lesson, but she made me feel comfortable and at ease the minute I walked through the door. She is educated and passionate about music. Also, she is extremely patient. I have been going to her for Piano Lessons now once a week for almost 6 months and I couldn't be happier with my decision. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend Corinne. She's amazing!

Private Piano Teacher

I teach how to read, but also how to improvise! like to play guitar along with my students to help them groove!

About Mike

I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very enthusiastic and can teach students how to read. If they do not want to read music, they can learn to play by ear. I can also show them where to put their fingers. During piano lessons, I often accompany students on guitar and suggest a scale for improvisation, so they can play the blues. During drum lessons, I often play bass so they can learn to groove.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should have their own instrument and a music stand.

*** Spec

ialties ***
I specialize in jazz improvisation on piano and guitar.
I also teach recreational guitar and piano for adults, including classical and blues styles.
I coach bass players and drummers in playing stylistically correct grooves for jazz, rock and latin music.

Private Piano Teacher

Our lessons will be both encouraging and productive, but most importantly, will foster a love and understanding of music. Curriculum is individualized based on the student’s musical interests. Students will learn songs they love to play while also developing proper technique and important musical skills like sight-reading, a solid understanding of rhythm, music theory, and ear training. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background.

About Summer

I believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating a positive and individualized learning environment while simultaneously teaching the necessary technique and knowledge to play your instrument both successfully and confidently.
 
Above all, our lessons will focus on reaching your musical potential. Curriculum for our lessons will draw from variety of methods and aspects of music education. These include music theory, ear training, sight-reading, body mapping, technique, improvisation skills, arranging, and composition. I place a great emphasis on learning repertoire from a variety of genres of music.
 
Students will have the opportunity to share what they learn at spring and winter recitals and to participate in group lessons on a regular basis.



I have 9 years of experience teaching piano, guitar, music th

eory, and ear training to students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds, including students with special needs. 
 
I am currently completing my Masters degree at University of California, Irvine. Prior to my graduate studies, I was based in New York City, where I ran a private music studio, performed throughout the city with my jazz quintet, and worked as an accompanist and musical director. I graduated with honors from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with degrees in Performance and Audio Engineering.



Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about lessons or scheduling!

Private Piano Teacher

Great with children. You will learn how to read music and proper technique. You can learn classical or more modern pieces, if you prefer!

About Megan

I am originally from North Carolina and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I have been involved in music, theatre and dance since the age of 3. I also have worked with various professional children's theatre companies and run my own touring theatre company. I have been a Zumba instructor since 2011 and I have been a swimming instructor/lifeguard since 2003.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that learning anything new should be a fun experience. If it's not fun then you're more likely to get frustrated and quit. My teaching philosophy is that I want to know what inspires you and create lessons that will keep you or your children interested and having fun. During the first lesson we will figure out a personalized lesson and go from there.

*** Travel Equipment ***
For violin students I expect them to h

ave a proper size violin, shoulder rest and bow.
For beginner piano students you should have at least a 61 key keyboard, but an 88 keyboard piano is preferred.

*** Specialties ***
I'm very personable, very communicative and I work well with all ages.

As time goes on, you'll be able to reach to intermediate level. I typically use Faber piano book series. I love working with students of all ages and up to intermediate level and I can't wait to meet you!

I am just starting to learn how to play the piano, and have had no past experience with other music teachers. Tomoko has a very pleasant and encouraging teaching style. Her approach is informal and she does not rely on a rigid "lesson plan". I would highly recommend her for those wanting a relaxed learning experience.

After knowing Melia for a few years now, her talent as a musician never ceases to amaze me. Throughout her lessons she does a fantastic job of breaking it down so anyone can understand it. She's taught children up to adults and she has an act for teaching. I highly recommend Melia as a teacher, whether you're a beginner or advanced. She's been training for over 20 years.
