View Full Profile

I help budding pianists learn scales, chords, sight-reading and songs that match your skill level and interest. I integrate some music theory and ear training so that execution of every note and rhythm makes sense in your hands, your ears and your mind.

About Weslie
Well-versed in voice, music theory, popular song styles and poetic writing, I have helped many singers and songwriters to sing and/or compose with skill and confidence in a style that is natural and unique to them. I teach voice at AMDA (Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts) to singers, dancers actors. I studied voice and jazz arranging at Berklee College of Music, and then earned my Master's of Music degree in music composition from Cal State LA. I have sung pop, jazz and theatre music in Los Angeles, New York, and across the US and Canada. I've appeared on the Jay Leno Show, and have sung in many local music venues, such as the Troubadour and Luna Park, and have won multiple awards for my songs in internationally acclaimed "I HATE MUSICALS" - a short film musical (now on iTunes). My musical theatre works has been been presented in Los
Angeles, San Francisco and Chicago. I am a proud member of CMASH, a composer collective in San Francisco, and I collaborate with Ann Moss, Liam Wade, and Arnold Margolin. My song Practice Your Flamenco was recently recorded at George Lucas' Skywalker Sound, and will be featured on Ann Moss's new CD, Currents.

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to think of my teaching style as 'serious fun'. As a teacher and coach, I want to inspire you to learn skills and songs that help to develop your authentic musical identity. My lessons always include a warm-up, song study and performance. I will, if you prefer, help you choose songs, as well as transpose any song to fit your voice type and range. If you are inquisitive about songwriting, or music theory, I can definitely be a guide in those areas as well.

Weslie is great!

Weslie has helped me tremendously with music theory. She is really good at listening and figuring out specific areas that I needed help with. She even took time on the side outside of our lessons to listen to music examples I sent her and analyzed them for me. Weslie is patient and makes learning fun. Her teaching environment is comfortable and she's flexible with her schedule. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a teacher!

Weslie is a great mentor and teacher

Weslie has been able to open my eyes to what my voice really sounds like into the "musical world" in terms of technicality. While also been able to make me a better singer already. We have been working on one of my favorite songs, and there's so much I've learned from her in terms of playing the guitar and understanding how the chords are built and interfere into the overall senses of the song. I would recommend Welsie to any person that has passion in music and is willing to take the classes seriously in terms of a good learning pace and content, because I believe that she is one of the best out there in LA.

Teaching piano begins with learning, playing, knowing, and loving the piano and the music it can produce. You will learn the music theory (scales to modes, rhythm, music signs), develop a good piano technic, improve sight reading. I teach classical and contemporary styles.

About George
I am so glad you’re here!

The music lessons for young children are full of fun, interactive activities with iPads apps and traditional methods that not only help develop a strong musical foundation and build essential life skills, but offer a unique bonding experience for you and your child.

Discover for yourself why families love my innovative music lessons for kids.

YES! Music Matters!

The curriculum is built on research that proves MUSIC MATTERS. Music affects virtually every aspect of development and when young children are consistently engaged by music during the “musical window” they benefit at many levels.

What about private lessons?

Do I believe in private lessons? You bet! But I know from experience that private lessons are most valuable for older kids who have the ability to concentrate in a one-to-one setti
ng.

With this Private setting you will have a solid foundation in keyboard skills and music theory and typically excel quickly in their continued music education and when learning other instruments. The education and experiences a child has in my music program sets them up for success with private instruction.

Music Program

Builds spatial-temporal reasoning skills critical for greater success in math and science studies.

Music students out-perform non-music students on achievement tests in reading and math.

Music students receive more academic honors and awards than non-music students.

Develops social and emotional skills including the ability to relate to others and better express ideas, and less likely to have behavior/discipline problems.

I offer up to 2 recitals a year so that you can perform everything you know.

Feel free to reach out and let's setup some lessons.

Thank you, George F.

George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.

MFA from CalArts, teaching all levels and abilities, you will be able to learn to read music, piano techniques and practice strategies, chords/scales, work on repertoire of any style, improvisation, etc. Beginners are welcome!

I frequently use the Alfred, Faber, and Dozen-a-Day books for beginners. Advanced students will have highly individualized teaching materials. Please be in touch with any questions!

About John
I've been playing music for over twenty years as a brass player, pianist, guitarist, composer, and electronic musician. I've studied and performed across the country—starting in Seattle, then New York and the northeast, and finally here in Los Angeles.

As a performer, I have trained and play extensively on the French horn, piano, and guitar. I perform in a variety of styles—from classical to jazz, pop/rock styles, and modern and experimental music.

As a composer and sound designer, I work in a variety of settings, from composing for orchestra, string quartet, percussion, and groups of all shapes and sizes, to designing sound for theater and film.

I earned my Bachelor's degree at Bennington College in Vermont and my Master's degree at CalArts. I play all around LA as a freelance orchestral musician, in my brass quartet, a studio h
ornist (recorded on will.i.am's last album, The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, and with Horse's Mouth, to name a few), and in various other groups. I have taught at Bennington College, Summer Sonatina Piano School, Sage City Symphony's Young Composers Project, CalArts, Barnsdall Park's Junior Art Center, and Santa Monica Music Center. I have been teaching privately since high school and love working with students to meet their individual goals in music.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument for demonstration and group playing when applicable. I provide sheet music and method books for use in lessons or temporary loan. I expect students to have their own instrument and music stand for use during lessons. If using electric guitar, they should have their own amplifier. In theory or songwriting lessons, they should have their own staff paper. I ask students to purchase their own method books and music when needed.

Piano was my first love in music, and it's one of my favorite instruments to teach. You can play ANY kind of music with a piano, and once you learn some basics on piano, those skills will transfer over to any other musical instrument you could want to play.

I have piano students as young as four who cannot read, all the way up to students well into their 70s. Regardless of your age/ability, it's my goal to help instill a love of music in each of my students so that they can enjoy the piano for life.

About Megan
I grew up in a music store, and learned a love for music at an early age. I started piano at age 3, and just kept adding instruments from there. I majored in music at MidAmerica Nazarene University, where I was on scholarship for Piano, Trumpet and French Horn. I have taught General Music, Beginning Band, and Beginning Orchestra in four LA area private and charter schools, as well as teaching music classes for home-school co-op groups in the Hollywood area. I've been teaching private lessons for nearly 10 years, taking students from ages 4-adult, from beginner to intermediate skill levels.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music should be fun, and my lessons are geared towards keeping students engaged and excited. I've developed a very out-of-the-box teaching style that takes into account the student's learning style, interests, and goals. It
's important for students to feel successful from day 1, and it's my goal to have each student playing a song by the end of the first lesson. We sing, move, and play our way through music!

I love the fact that Megan manages to balance exercises that are really fun and easy for me as well as some which are harder and which I need to work on. She adjusts the pace to my abilities and I always feel I have accomplished something after our lessons, which is great.
She lets me chose songs, but always has suggestions, if I don't.

Glendale, CA

View Full Profile

I've been teaching piano for more than twenty years and many of my students have gone on to numerous competitions and won many awards. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs and recognize a few of the notes and as time goes on you'll be able to read and communicate with harder pieces. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Regina
At the age of fifteen, Ms. Regina graduated with honors from the Z. Paliashvili Special Music Gymnasium for Gifted Children in Tbilisi, Georgia. As a student of a famous Georgian pianist, Tengiz Amirejibi, she presented her country in numerous competitions. (Tengiz Amirejibi was a student of Heinrich Neuhaus, a famous Russian teacher and pianist.)

As a child, Ms. Regina gave many solo recitals and concerts with the Georgian Symphonic Orchestra. Ms. Regina earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts with emphasis on Advanced Piano Performance from the Yerevan State Conservatory. After graduating, she worked with talented children in her alma mater for many years. Later in her professional career, Ms. Regina taught at the Tbilisi State Conservatory as well as the Moscow Music Gymnasium.

With more than eighteen years of professional teachin
g experience, Ms. Regina is able to offer her students a diverse range of educational resources. She specializes in teaching piano, performance, and music theory to students of all ages and levels.

Ms. Regina's teaching techniques are based on a combination of the famous Russian Music School (based on music giants such as Konstantin Igumnov, Daniel Barenboim, and Heinrich Neuhaus) and the American Music Education System. This combination allows each student to work at a pace comfortable for him/her, and helps all students make significant progress in the areas of sight reading, ear training, and performance skills.

***Teaching Schedule***
Ms. Regina teaches in her Glendale studio and the surrounding areas every day of the week except for Saturdays. She teaches in her Orange County studio located in Fountain Valley on Saturdays.

***Travel Area and Special Rates***
If the system shows that your location is out of my travel area, please contact me by messaging through TakeLessons! Also feel free to inquire for discounts for siblings!

About Emi
I was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada by Japanese parents. I was privileged with different kinds of learning opportunities including piano, Japanese language, ice skating, ballet, skiing and martial arts. After high school I attended university where I majored in Piano performance.

Over the last 10 years I have tutored all ages for piano and Japanese and learned how to be patient, persistent and to just be able to adjust and accommodate to different kinds of learning styles and abilities. I realized that it’s important to have a structure in your teaching styles and have clear expectations, standards and goals. Making certain modifications to your teaching styles along the way is crucial as well to meet individual student needs. I believe in setting high standards for students is an important way to get them to rise to their pote
ntial.

In my free time I love to go on a short hike, explore new restaurants or see a live music show.

Ms. Diana is very sweet and patient teacher. My son and daughter are learning Piano and Violin with Ms. Diana. She knows how to make kids be interested in music. She has a talent to make my kids enjoy her lesson. We have taking her lessons for 3 years and I feel we are very lucky to start our kids' music lessons with her. Because I have seen so many students have hard time to reset their thinking of music and posture once they got used to learn music from bad teachers.
I guarantee you will NEVER regret to invite her as your kid's first music teacher.
She is passionate, patient, and sweet piano & violin teacher.

My daughter , Celine has been learning violin from Ms. Diana Kim for 3 years.
At first, Celine had to change all her bad posture from her previous teacher. After 6 months , Celine was able to correct her bad posture and she won a lot of competitions and passed certificate auditions and orchestra auditions.
Ms. Kim always says bad posture is very related to mad sound and it makes a limit to be improved as a violin player.
What I was impressed was Ms. Kim came most of my daughter's competitions and auditions, recitals. Ms. Kim encouraged my daughter when my daughter was so nervous to play on the stages. I can feel Ms. Kim really loves her students and cares a lot once people become her students.
Bi- Monthly student recital in her studio, helps a lot for kids who wants to have a stage experience and it is very important for their confidence.
I heard Ms. Kim started to teach in Youth orchestra and music colleges. I cheer for her students and her teaching classes.
I strongly recommend Ms. Kim for your kids. A great teacher makes huge difference of performance and most of all their student's personality and future.

Hi, There!
Thanks for viewing my profile! I have been studied and practiced piano for over 15 years and have a bachelor's degree in Music Composition. I started teaching both young beginners, 4-16, and adult beginners since 2011. I focus my teaching on leading the students to find out the type of player they want to be. Although different methods will be used depending on students' age and goals, a good grounding in skills and techniques is necessary.

About Jade
After over 15 years of classical piano training, Jade has had a lot of great memories with the instrument she grew up with, and teaching is absolutely one of her favorite jobs to do. In order to spread the love of music and make more people understand the beauty of the piano, Jade always brings joy and patience to her classes. In the past 3 years, she has taught a good number of students from age of 4 to adults. As an experienced piano teacher, she knows that it's important to use different teaching methods to people of different ages and levels. In fact, being a kid lover, Jade is especially good at talking to younger children in the way they could understand. Like how she was taught by her teacher, Jade believes that interest is always the best teacher. It doesn't matter where the starting point is, it's never too late to enter the magi
