About Benk Joseph
My teaching experience dates back to my college days, as I began teaching private lessons part time 15 years ago, and have been consistently teaching private include in Yamaha Music School. Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for the instrument. Nothing is more rewarding than seeing one of my students develop a passion for music!

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. Graduated from Musician Institute, Hollywood,CA. Performing all over the world, such as Canada, Japan, Shanghai, Macau, etc. Performing has been one of the greater experiences of my life as a musician, and I've had the opportunity to play with Big Band, Cruise line
band and local band in Los Angeles.

*** Lesson Details ***
For beginning students who are children, I typically start with really really simply technique to understand, easy to understand. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce "Rudiments" and sight reading. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instruction accordingly to keep the lessons engaging and fun, no matter their ability level.

Therefore, it's important that each student progresses at his or her own pace. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson. Acknowledging accomplishments helps fuel a students desire to progress, and makes students eager to learn more. By trying to find out what inspires the student, I can successfully tailor my instruction to their wants and needs. 

The price is for Palmdale area. if you around San Gabriel Valley, we can discuss more.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full Pro gear Yamaha Drum set with the sound system, double pedal, left foot clave, pro cymbal.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Sound system play along with the song, teaching equipment.

Benk is very flexible, affordable and our son took to him very well. He even records what he has learned each week so we both can keep track of his progress. He is much more affordable then other drum teachers or studio's in the area, and even will come to your home.
If you are looking for a GREAT Teacher you should take some time to talk to Benk.

About Emily
I provide a fun, supportive and creative environment for my students, exploring music with enthusiasm and finding new ways of approaching the voice to facilitate a healthy technique.

I teach students of all ages and levels, and all musical genres. I believe that in order to sing any kind of repertoire (whether it be rock or opera), you first need to understand and work on the fundamental principles of singing; body alignment, breath support and a clear, resonant tone.

Originally from Gainesville, Florida, I started studying piano at the age of 6 and then started voice lessons around the age of 8. I started mainly with musical theater and pop music, and it wasn't until high school that I left Gainesville to pursue a more rigorous arts education at Interlochen Arts Academy. There, I discovered my love for opera and classical musi
c, and then went on to receive my Bachelor of Music from Oberlin Conservatory, and my Master of Music from San Francisco Conservatory. I am currently working on my Doctorate in Music at the University of Southern California.

Studying and performing music has been such an integral part of my life, and I have a lot of enthusiasm and energy to teach aspiring musicians!

I started taking piano lessons from Emily in January without any prior knowledge of how to read music or piano. I am surprised at how far I have come in such a short time and I credit much of this to Emily's teaching style. She's able to build upon previous lessons and go at a pace that feels comfortable but still packs a lot of material in each lesson. She is so friendly, enthusiastic and has a wonderful ability to put you at ease. I find this very important when learning a new skill (especially, learning a new skill as an adult!)

About Sophia
On top of being a professional musician and educator, I am a fun, easy-going, and inspirational person. I love helping people learn music, and I feel so inspired and humbled when I see students grow and progress in music over time. I emphasize achieving the student’s long-term goals, while always making sure the lessons are a pleasant and fun experience!

This excerpt is taken from Sophia's website:

      Sophia is an uprising pianist, composer, film composer, educator and bandleader based in Los Angeles California, specializing in a diverse musical style and eclectic range of repertoire that combines the colors of jazz, classical, orchestral and contemporary music. In her latest upcoming project, her ensemble features a punchy rhythm section and a melodic horn section that delivers a raw and compelling sound which invites listeners
of all audiences to groove to and connect with on a deeper and instinctual level. 

           She has performed at major venues such as the Valley Performing Arts Center, where she conducted a full orchestra for the premiere of her orchestral piece “A Path Unfolds,” and sang with the CSUN Jazz A Band. She has also performed at the Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza, the Colts Stadium in Indianapolis, the Alamodome, the Georgia Dome, the Hall of Liberty and at Los Angeles Community College where she premiered her latest piece “Emerge” with a jazz combo, which featured legendary drummer Gene Coye, and a six-piece horn section.

        Active as a collaborative artist, Sophia performs as a pianist with different ensembles professionally, including the Westlake Village Symphony Orchestra, and the New Valley Symphony Orchestra. In 2014 she was a featured soloist and won the Fred Sanford Gold Medal in Percussion with the world famous Santa Clara Vanguard Drum and Bugle Corps, and was a featured soloist in the Winter Drumline group POW Percussion. 

            While mastering her craft in classical music, jazz, film scoring and composing original music, Ms. Sophia is going to graduate from Cal State Northridge with a Bachelor’s of Music in Media Compostion this May 2018. She is a recognized student at Cal State Northridge and received the Igor Paltsev Memorial Composition Scholarship in 2015 for three of her original works entitled Forward Motion, Drifting, and Contemplation. Since then she has been studying with the phenomenal jazz pianists Matt Harris, and Gary Fukishima, and the renown Dr. Elizabeth Sellers, who is the head and founder of the Film and Commercial Writing department. 

            Sophia has been playing the piano since the age of three, and acquired her Grade 8 Certificate in Piano from the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM) when she was 14.  Upon graduating high school, she was awarded the United States Marine Corps “Semper Fidelis” Award for Music Excellence, and under the instruction of acclaimed pianist Lou Touman, she auditioned and was accepted as a Piano Performance major at CSUN, at that time studying with the world renowned pianist and CSUN faculty member, Dr. Salas. 

            While currently working on composing for her ensemble which she is the pianist for, performing with several groups professionally, securing an internship, and teaching lessons, she says that being so involved with Music "is only possible because I am passionate about everything about Music, and I plan to be a part of Music and share this fondness with others for the rest of my life."

Sophia was so kind and helpful. I wanted to get my 7 year old Josh involved in music and figured piano would be a good instrument to learn the basics on, especially since I already have a keyboard at home. Sophia arrived for his first lesson on time and was very polite. I sat in on the lesson and Josh was comfortable for usually being shy around girls. Sophia introduced him to basic technique and showed him some of the cool things a pianist can do. She even asked him what he liked to listen to and what he would want to play in the future, giving him a personal reason to practice. I hope he continues as long time and Sophia definitely makes that seem like a possibility. I cannot recommend her enough!!

Sierra is a fantastic teacher. Extremely knowledgeable and well-informed, Sierra made me feel accommodated and in good hands. Providing a more youthful perspective on classical music, she welcomed different methods that I wanted to try when it came to approaching technique. Sierra also is fresh out of undergrad and is on the road to her masters degree, which is super helpful for students who are in the midst of the application process for colleges. Thank you so much, Sierra, and I look forward to taking more lessons soon!

About Kalynne
Have you ever dreamed of being able to sing well? Or dreamed of performing on stage? Maybe you want to be a background singer and be able to harmonize? Or maybe you want to be your own artist? Whatever your dream is, I am here to help you make that dream a reality! My name is Kalynne and I have worked as a professional vocalist for the past 10 years. Singing has always been a passion of mine. I started taking voice lessons at the age of 8 where I was classically trained for 4 years. I won numerous competitions and talent shows in junior high and high school. When I graduated from Red Bluff High at the age of 18, I moved to Hollywood to pursue my music career. I attended the Musician’s Institute of Contemporary Music where I earned a degree in Vocal Performance and an emphasis in Independent Artistry. I also received the “Most Outstanding
Performer” award from my graduating class. After college, I appeared on the hit reality T.V. show, American Idol where I placed Top 24 Girls. The experience brought about many performance opportunities and television interviews. Soon after the show I released my first batch of original music on a self titled EP. The EP consisted of 6 original songs that were all co written and co produced by myself. I now stay busy as a full time musician performing in numerous bands around Los Angeles and Las Vegas. I am a working songwriter and work with various country and pop artists between Nashville and LA. I am very confident that I have the knowledge to help you reach your goals and quite possibly exceed them. I hope to hear from you soon and I am looking forward to working with you! :)
