Private Piano Teacher

My teaching style for piano is specialized and unique to every student, as I cater lessons to your goals and your individual learning style. Whether you like to learn "by the book," by ear, by example, or a combination of the three (which I find is the most common), I am more than happy to teach in that style in order to give you the most reward out of your lesson and a deep appreciation for piano.
I integrate piano technique and music theory concepts while we learn the repertoire of your choice.

Hi there! My name is Moriah, and I have been teaching private voice and piano lessons for 4.5 years. I graduated from Cal Poly Pomona with a Bachelors of Arts in Music, emphasis in Music Industry Studies, including voice and performance training. I have studied with/been coached by Martin Green

Moriah is a great Singing teacher. I couldn't hold a tune. Moriah helped me overcome a fear of singing in front of people after I had bad experiences with other music teachers. She had faith in me. After several lessons I now can sing in tune!! Thanks Moriah for helping me do what I love to do-Sing!

When I first met Moriah, I was a little hesitant to continue lessons with her because she was in her 20s like myself. I wanted someone, I guess, older to be my instructor. The older they are, the more they know, the more they can teach right? ...........Well, Moriah is one heck of a smart woman when it comes to music theory, and ear/vocaltraining! She knows what she is talking about and even more so, knows how to explain it in a way YOU will understand. She will work with you until you are able to grasp what she is trying to teach, even if you have to try a million different methods before the right one is found. She would rather spend time with you in fully understanding something then just pushing you along. She is open to questions, comments and concerns you have. Moriah is very aware of the concept of “one size does NOT fit all”, and she will customize your session to your needs, and skill level.

Her lessons usually start of with a couple of stretches (usually just upper body). This is to help relax your body, jaw, mouth, etc before singing. Then she will do some vocal warms that at first seem pretty basic, and not intense, but they will help you in the long run! Trust me. Then she will practice with you a song you want to try to sing or need help with. As you progress, she will have you work on reading music and other skills. (Course, she is open to working on anything more or less as you need). Once again, your lesson is customized on what YOU need.

I’ve been working with her since July 2018. I know that I have improved on ear training immensely! I am able to pick up melodies much faster than before. I am able to sing more powerful than before which is something I struggle with consistently. She will push you! She will take you out of your comfort and push you to have confidence in yourself. She has a great personality. Kind. Fun. Energetic. Intelligent beyond her years. I’m continuing to take lessons with her until she makes me the next Beyoncé or something.

So I highly recommend her. Book a few lessons with her, attend them, don’t forget to take your water, and a recoding device, be responsible and take it serious because she is taking you serious. After all you’re paying for the lessons. You want to improve. And you will.

I’m looking forward to continue working with her and be stretched more.
Rhonda
Hands down Moriah is an excellent teacher. She really helped me to understand the difference between singing from my throat and from my core. She reminded me to enjoy the process of learning a new song and to embrace my originality. I’ve studied with her for awhile and she’s shown me how to push myself and appreciate all the work that I’ve done, learning to trust myself.

Private Piano Teacher

Piano needs to be fun especially for beginners. Matthew teaches with the "Piano Adventures" series. These books (available on amazon) give the student a comprehensive look at learning piano. In these books you learn how to read music, and you will be playing songs on your first lesson! As for older students I offer a review of music theory that can help you play/hear some of your favorite songs and most of all have fun! Matthew's method is based on each students individual goals and their level of proficiency on the instrument.

About Matthew

HELLO! My name is Matthew Smith and I love music and I love to teach it even more. Although my upbringing is in jazz and classical music, I am very fluent in latin, hiphop, rock, pop and more world music as well.

I come from a classical piano background but have found a ton of joy in contemporary styles (pop, rock, jazz, etc). I also enjoy arranging, so if there's a song you like that isn't written for piano, we can write out our own version. It's a great opportunity to learn about voice leading, inverting chords, modulation, etc. If you want to build strong foundational skills by using both theory and ear training concepts, I think you'll learn a lot from my approach. If you're a complete and total beginner, or someone more experienced looking to widen their repertoire and learn more theory, I can teach you!

"Highly Reccomended

Lena has been teaching my 7 year old son for one year and has had a profoundly positive impact on his passion for piano. Prior to Lena, my son wasn't very enthused about his piano lessons and wasn't taking to the instruction. After he started learning under Lena's tutelage, I saw a remarkable difference. My son looked forward to his weekly sessions with Lena and it was apparent that the lessons were registering with him. Lena is patient and her teaching style makes it easy for my son to relate to the music. I highly recommend Lena as a piano instructor for your child."

Want to Make it as a Musician in L.A.? Try Piano!

By Dorothea G. - Los Angeles Piano Teacher

So you want to be an awesome musician. Do you believe you will? Because that’s half of the effort right there – believing it. If you already do, then skip to the last paragraph of this article. But if you’re unsure, keep reading…

When you take piano lessons in Los Angeles, your success is within “Arm’s Reach.” I composed a song with that title on my piano recently, and licensed it to a feature film. I never forget how amazing it is that what pours out of my mind and my heart (and all over my piano) might actually be heard in a movie or TV show, or on someone else’s DVD player. I used to think that was all dreaming. That it was impossible. But why did I ever think that way?

My only enemy was the idea of “impossible.” But it’s NOT impossible - it’s a reality for me. So when I reflected on where that idea came from, I traced it back to loving friends and family who thought they were protecting me from delusions of grandeur. They told me, in so many words, not to set myself up for failure.

Let’s just clear this up here and now. There is no failure. There are only course corrections. I know this from years of practice and from teaching piano lessons. If my students thought of every wrong note as a failure, they would quit after the first two minutes of trying. So I help them to correct their course - note by note, chord by chord. It’s no different with our thinking – or with our life journey for that matter. We choose a song to learn. We make a thousand course corrections in the learning process. And then…we PLAY IT! If we believe we can, we will.

I chose piano because it was my passion, and it became my way of overcoming the impossible. Like no other instrument, you can hear an entire symphony on a piano! That’s why the genius composers of old were pianists. Do you hear simple melodies in your mind? Or do you hear multi-layered symphonic brilliance? In either case, you can make it real on a piano.

Okay, so you’re an awesome musician now - even if only in your mind. Now it’s time to find an instructor who can show you how to make that awesomeness live in the world, starting local piano lessons. Remember, once it’s locked into your mind, nothing is impossible.
