*** Lesson Details ***
I am a very fun loving person and believe in creating a positive environment where students feel comfortable to be themselves. At the same time I am a stickler for details and do not allow laziness. I believe a balance of fun with excellence has allowed my students to excel far beyond their own expectations. Good results takes HARD WORK! Please do not come to lessons with the expectation to sing like Beyoncé or play piano at Carnegie Hall after 4 lessons. Mastering your voice and instrument takes equal parts of time, hard work, dedication and patience.

My teaching style is individually based.
For vocal clients, I asses their strengths and weaknesses and develop a plan to build up their weak areas while helping them find "their own voice". I focus on breathing, intonation and control which I believe are the foundation of great singing ability. I use a classical Italian based program along with pop, R&B, jazz, and rock. I have vocal coached in many languages including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

For piano clients I focus on strength, dexterity and precision in fingering. I also help students learn to feel the music and bring their personality and touch to each piece they are performing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Tanisha currently teaches at her performing arts academy the White H Arts Academy. There are private instruction rooms and a lobby waiting area for parents and guests. Parents may also sit in the lesson room if desired. Private lesson rooms include a piano, speakers, and a music stand.

The White H Arts Academy also has two state of the art mirrored dance rooms with sound systems and wireless microphones for practicing stage performances or rehearsing for a big show.

*** Specialties ***
Vocals: beg to adv
Piano: beg to inter

Vocal genres are classical (opera), pop, R&B, gospel, rock, jazz, blues and musical theater. I studied voice at Berklee College of Music. Have also studied Seth Riggs SLS (Speech Level Singing) method independently, however, I am not certified. I also teach in languages other than English including Spanish, Japanese and Chinese.

Piano instruction levels I teach are basic to intermediary focusing on classical, and general accompaniment abilities.

Hello! I am a certified and experienced piano teacher. I have a master degree of music and also have a certificate of Yamaha Music Association. I've been working with all ages of students at schools and studios. Currently, I offer private lessons at my home studio and online.

About Jihye
Hello, future students!

My name is Jihye and I teach Piano and Korean language. I grew up in Seoul, Korea and currently living in LA, California. I graduated from Kyung Hee University and earned a Master's degree at the California Institute of the Arts.

I have been teaching piano for 20 years and Korean at Korean language schools. In the past, I have met many K pop and K drama lovers so I decided to share my culture and language with them.

So far I have met many passionate and enthusiastic students whom I feel very lucky to work with. I offer personalized curriculum to each of my Korean and piano students. Also, help students who prepare piano level exams such as CM, ABRSM, and SATII for the Korean language. I sometimes use clips of songs and dramas to help students who learn Korean.

Are you ready to learn?? Let's begin taki

My reading comprehension on par with where we are on lessons, but my struggle is listening comprehension. I am listening and repeating playback of workbook audio files over and over trying to get it. They speak so fast for beginner like me. Jihye not only helped me with this on her own time, but on our next lesson she made a change. We did the textbook lesson as planned but she reserved a small portion of our time to dictating workbook narrative at a pace I could keep up with. Noted difference on the first go. I am grateful and know I will only get better!! Thank you.

Jihye is so personable and very accommodating. She has helped me tremendously with my upcoming trip to South Korea. Her insights and guidance have been truly wonderful. If you want a teacher who is patient and able to work at your pace, look no further. If you are interested in learning Korean, she is a very good teacher.

After the first lesson you will be making music be on your way to achieving your musical goals. Classical piano requires a strong foundation in fundamentals such as theory, sightreading, technique and performance practice all of which we will begin to explore in your first lesson.

With 10+ years as a music teacher and professional musician I have picked up many approaches that will insure you are making the most progress and truly finding your musical voice.

About Calvin
As a teacher, I have worked with of many ages and backgrounds. One of my students, Skylar Stecker, has gone on to become a successful major label recording artist recently becoming the youngest artist to receive a number 1 on the dance billboard charts. I recently had the opportunity to tour with her as her guitarist and pianist.

I have studied, performed and taught music for over 10 years. I hold a B.A. in music from USC. My professional experience as a musician and teacher has led me to many areas of the music business. I've worked as an apprentice to several established film composers and arrangers and have had the opportunity work with Lionel Hampton New York Big Band, Metropole Orchestra, Clayton-Hamilton Jazz Orchestra, Clayton Brothers, Rachelle Farrell, Michael Buble, and Charles Aznavour. I play guitar, mandolin, piano,
bass, ukulele, banjo as well as write music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am extremely patient and firmly believe that anybody can learn to play music.

I try to keep my teaching philosophy simple. We figure out your musical goals and aspirations and carve out a path to achieving them. Along the way I will try to illuminate how the path to attaining your goals and aspirations is best taken at an enjoyable, relaxed pace and with a strong work ethic.

I always prepare for your lessons based on your interests, integrating relevant books and videos, creating handouts tailored to what we are studying in order to maintain clarity.

I will develop and strengthen rhythm, music pitch, melodic and harmonic sight reading, articulation, and proper piano technique.

About Michelle
I am Certified Beginning Piano teacher as well as an intermediate level teacher. I studied piano at Cerritos College of Norwalk, CA and completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Music with a focus in percussion from CSU Long Beach. I have consistently taught piano, music and drums since 2002.

I have traveled the world to perform music. I have been to Brazil to study samba and its many different styles with the World Percussion Program of CSU Long Beach in 2006 and 2007. In 2012, I traveled to Colombia and Venezuela to perform with the band of Terratour, a humanitarian group. While touring, we collaborated with local musicians in local venues.

You may have noticed from my photos and videos that I'm a Carpenters fan. I sing, play piano and drums. The Carpenters are my musical inspirations and that's exactly how I perform- with te
nder, love, and care. I was once the other musical half of a Carpenters tribute band, Close To You. My friend and I learned many of the Carpenters tunes and collaborated with vocals, piano, steel drums, drums and other percussion.

My teaching is focused on reading the notes (pitch), proper technique and rhythm. All are a part of the music-making process and should be equally strong. I start with young beginners when they can count to at least 10 and know the alphabet. The student must have the proper instrument and additional equipment, when necessary. The student is required to practice on a regular basis (daily is ideal).

I am currently available for online or in-studio lessons. Please notify me if there is a day and time not available. I try to be flexible but do prefer serious and committed students. When signing up a child for the first time, it is best to make a one year commitment so the child can really learn to work alone and develop self-discipline and parental guidance and support is necessary for success. For adults, commitment to practicing is key- not just lesson attendance.

You have all the ability and power to learn and be great- I'm just going to guide you all the way to your goal!

Please notify me of the special need prior to booking lessons so I can accommodate.

Michelle is a great teacher. She is patient, kind, and enthusiastic about music. My child loves going to class and hates missing a class (only when she's sick). She makes learning music fun but it also firm if the child doesn't meet the expectation. It's been a year since we started lessons and we couldn't be more happier.

BEST QUALITY LESSONS GUARANTEED. I incorporate good technique and challenging repertoire, while keeping it enjoyable for students of all ages! My fun and frank teaching style will keep students engaged, and I always adjust my method of teaching to each student’s special needs. Also, I host free bi-yearly recitals to give students the opportunity to show off what they have learned. What I give to my students extends beyond the piano by giving them self confidence, building their self-esteem, and inspiring a life long passion for music.

About Natsha
Natsha Siri is a piano instructor who is based in Torrance, CA.

Throughout her college career, Natsha performed extensively with various western and world music ensembles at UCLA, such as the Video Game Orchestra, Chinese music ensemble, the Irish music ensemble, the Middle Eastern Music ensemble, and the Balinese Gamelan Orchestra. After graduating from UCLA with a B.A. in Ethnomusicology (World Music Emphasis), Natsha moved to Northern Illinois and taught music lessons to over 50 private students throughout the Lake County area. Her students ranged in age from 4 to 90 years old, and she enjoyed teaching each and every one of them. Over the last 4 years, her interest turned towards piano pedagogy, the study of the teaching of piano playing. Natsha believes that the fundamental basics of piano playing and the western theory that accompan
ies it help to accelerate students’ progress with their other musical activities, whether they are picking up an additional instrument to piano, or singing in their school musical or church choir.

In June 2018, Natsha moved back to Los Angeles area to be closer to her family and start her own independent business as a piano instructor. She is currently pursuing an active membership with the Music Teachers’ Association of California, while building her roster of students in the Santa Monica and South Bay area.

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.

Hi, I’m Sarah Langley, and I’m a music teacher and coach working in Los Angeles. I’ve studied music my whole life, and my greatest passion is sharing it with others. As a singer and multiinstrumentalist, I’ve taught students of all ages, abilities, and interests. I’ve helped pro musicians brush up on music theory fundamentals. I’ve helped comics find their full vocal range, and seen them get big laughs on stage as a result. I’ve gotten to work with A-list actors in preparation for upcoming roles, and I’ve been privileged enough to help kids with special needs feel a sense of pride in their music.

About Sarah
I am a professional teacher, singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist. I graduated from Furman University with a Bachelor of Music Performance in trombone and voice. I also earned a Master of Music Education from Belmont University.

My students can expect improvement each day with my guidance. I pride myself in taking a very tailored approach to teaching private music; the one-on-one medium of private lessons provides the perfect opportunity to address the particular strengths and weaknesses of each student. Everyone has strengths that should be built upon, and I teach around each student’s innate gifts. I teach with the goals of musical fluency and joy In mind. My purpose is for each of my students to be able to sing and play whatever they want, whenever they want! It’s that simple.

I teach students of all ages and exper
ience levels, but I specialize in beginners. As someone who has played at all levels and has recovered from a lot of musical baggage, I realize how the beginning stage of music study is crucial to lifelong enjoyment. I began playing piano at the age of 5, taught myself drums at 10, played trombone in band starting at age 11, learned other brass instruments along the way, picked up a guitar at 14, and began studying voice at 18. I’ve performed in the Grand Ol’ Opry, the greatest cathedrals of Europe, and Carnegie Hall, twice. I have also learned to cope with my ADHD and I’ve taught students with special needs. I know how to learn and I can see the obstacles we all have to learning what we want. I simply see the potential in every single student. This is my unique gift as a teacher.

Over 10 years of teaching experience, Piano is my favorite instrument to teach among others like, Guitar and Ukulele. I believe we really learn the music in a right way with notation, and theory and that is the best way in the music education. It also gave us knowledge to play all keyboard instruments, synthesizers and makes everything easier for the students who likes to record and produce music at their home studio. I have great collection of books, songs that I am ready to share with you. Let's learn and have some real fun.

About Evren
I am a professional guitarist, composer and songwriter. I completed my education at Los Angeles Music College, and UCLA Film Scoring. I extended my studies with a 6 times Emmy award winner composer, and conductor for over 3 years privately in Hollywood, which provided me work for television, and independent films as a musician and a composer.

Music is my passion. I teach guitar students all different ages and levels. I worked professionally as a guitar and bass player for 2 decades, touring, and recording with artists all over the world. I have great and fun material for both guitar and bass guitar students which fits their levels perfectly. I also teach the Ukulele, and it has been one of the most fun experiences for me to connect with students working on Ukulele. I believe anyone can play the Uke.

Studying orchestration require me to
learn and improve my Piano skills whole a lot. I teach Piano now almost 10 years and have excellent books, and other material to learn the Piano in a fun way. I teach all ages, and specifically focus on beginner and intermediate levels since I also have taught Piano group classes last 5 years to same level students that are children and teenagers.

Since I have amazing opportunities to compose music for film and network TV shows, I got requests from students to teach them recording software, such as Pro Tools, Logic Pro X, and Garage Band as well as sample libraries. I can help you get better and faster on recording DAW.

I am open to work with anyone on any styles. Some of my favorites genres are: Classical, Jazz, Funk, Bossa Nova, Latin Jazz, Rock, Blues, Film Music and World Music. I look forward to meeting you, and be a part of your musical journey.

Evren is the best teacher ever. He taught me a lot on bass and he produced songs I wrote. He worked on these songs in ProTools and Logic and had a very strong command of these software platforms.

I learned a lot about bass from Evren, from jazz to funk and rock. He helped me improve my playing tremendously. I recommend him to everyone!

I started studying Acoustic Guitar with Evren online a few years back. I enjoyed learning chords, scales and related songs of what we were practicing. After a while I put together a little home studio with my laptop and wanted to record music at home for fun. Evren helped me setting up my small studio with an inexpensive interface, and worked through all the basics of Pro Tools. I started learning Audio and MIDI recordings, editing and writing simple songs with what I was learning on my lessons with him. I recommend Evren as a Guitar, Pro Tools and also Music Theory. He's fun to work with and patient teacher.
