We contacted him and he was making a suggestion to have my son go to his house and when I told him I didn’t like that suggestion as I specifically noted I needed at home tutoring he abruptly cancelled and said we weren’t a good fit.

Learn to express yourself through the art of piano playing. We will learn and then perfect the very fundamentals of music-making through an engaging, exciting method that is suitable and adaptable for students of any experience and age level.

About Kristapor

I believe Music is, most importantly, a tool for communication. As a teacher, my goal is to show students how to use this tool on their path towards clearer, more confident self-expression, and in so doing, further myself along the same path. As an instrumentalist and composer, I have the priv

Very informative, positive, and patient teacher.

Kristapor is a wonderful teacher. He not only taught my son violin, but also inspired him to be a better violinist. He spent hours with my son to come up with a high standard audition tape for applying a summer music camp. My son got accepted & had a great time learning music at the camp. Thank you, Kristapor!!!!
Anne
I took violin lessons from Kris for nearly two years, until moving out of LA. He is an extremely talented musician and teacher. During these lessons, my violin technique and musical expression both considerably improved. Kris is very patient, and able to teach multiple methods to successfully master various violin techniques (such as vibrato). Through implementing improvisation into the lessons, Kris can also bring out the student's musical creativity and confidence, which not only helps aspiring composers, but guides violin students in adding expression to the music they're currently learning. He encourages students to challenge themselves, but effectively teaches all of the techniques necessary to accomplish their musical goals.

He is also a brilliant composer, and is an excellent composition teacher as well! Although my lessons were mostly focused on violin, he provided much useful advice for improving my compositions for orchestra and symphonic band as well.

I highly recommend Kris as an instructor for music students of any proficiency level!

I specialize in Artist Development, Songwriting, and Recording. As a mother myself, I've toured over 25+ schools and incorporate a gentle parenting approach to teaching children (ages 8+). Over the past 12 years, I've taught students of all ages. No matter what the age or ultimate goal, this is what I've found to remain true: your voice cannot emerge in an environment of unsafety.

"Excellent, patient instructor. She didn't let my bad habits go unchallenged, giving me kind and consistent correction. The seemingly small corrections to form reduced fatigue and improved my playing. She was always great at communication. The best part for me was she did not insist I as an older adult learner practice from an elementary book. She suggested interesting pieces and studies that challenged me without overwhelming. Highly recommend Jessica for all age levels."

"Cândida is a very talented and dedicated musician. She clearly also has a passion for teaching since she takes great pleasure in helping students discover and develop their full potential. Simply put, she combines the perfect skills for an effective learning experience. I highly recommend her for anyone who loves music.
On a more personal note, a bit of how I met Cândida. I first started playing piano a long time ago but, after a couple of years, quit and never tried again. I had been willing to get back to classes for a while but hesitated several times. Cândida played a central role in encouraging me to do that and making me comfortable in this new beginning. Our connection was immediate and I have been taking lessons with her since then. During this time, it has also been very inspiring to learn from such a young yet experienced musician. Her method is very practical: although it is naturally easier to interact in in-presence, her Skype lessons really work. She has also been very flexible with regards to schedule. And, most importantly, always welcomes you to class with a bright Brazilian smile.
Again, could not recommend her more! Enjoy!"

The History of the Piano The piano is an amazing stringed instrument that uses percussion to create a full, resonating sound.
