Jan is a fun and dynamic instructor whose patience and attention to the needs of her students has been instrumental in helping my daughter enjoy and thrive in her voice and piano lessons. While some instructors, in our experience, have been excellent musicians but poor teachers, Jan's style and flexibility make her an ideal person for passing on her knowledge to students, so that they in turn develop their own musical talents and shine. Many thanks, Jan, for your gifts!

About Christian
Hello everyone! :)
I am a piano teacher from the Los Angeles area! I have two big passions in life. Music and teaching! And putting both together is truly a rewarding experience for me. That being said, I feel so lucky that I am a music teacher! I absolutely love to instill my passion for music in others, and I feel very accomplished when a student not only learns their instrument well, but also develops a passion for playing it! I always say that my main goal while teaching piano, is to make lessons both fun and rewarding! I believe that in order for a student to learn piano well, he/she must love playing it! I know that I've accomplished this "main goal" many times in the past, and I'm absolutely thrilled about doing it again and again!

I hold a Bachelors of Arts in Music degree from USC (my focus was Classical Piano). While pursui
ng this degree, I studied classical piano with renowned pianist Norman Krieger (among other teachers at USC). Also, I recently graduated with a masters degree (my focus was music composition) from UC Irvine. While there, I taught music theory to undergraduates. I think theory is important and it's one of the things I emphasize when I teach piano. When performing live, I love to play my own music but of course I also have a passion for performing the classics as well! I have also been playing keyboards in a rock band for several years.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach Beginner to semi- advanced levels. When working with beginners, I like to start with teaching basic scales and chords before starting to work on actual pieces of music. Scales help develop finger technique and knowing what chords you're playing helps one understand music better. When we start to go over pieces, I like to emphasize phrasing and dynamics as much as possible. And I also help the students analyze the music (chords, etc) so that they, again, understand the music they're playing. At first, I like to choose what pieces a student plays. But as they get more advanced, I encourage them to choose the music themselves. In other words, I want them to play what they want to play. I find classical music very exciting and I try to help students "get into it" by having them find music they like, and learning it! Of course, I try to help with this process as much as possible and if a student only chooses music that I feel will not help them improve their piano skills (or music that is beyond their level), I will help the student find something else.

In general, after 3 to 6 months with me, a student will have learned some exciting pieces of music, they will have developed greater finger technique, they will understand the theory behind all the music they play, and they will have developed a greater passion for their instrument and for music itself!

*** Studio Equipment ***
lessons in living room, piano, room for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
For piano students: I would expect them to have a piano or keyboard in their home. I would provide sheet music for the first few lessons. I am trained in the Alfred and Bastien methods and have used those books during my lessons. I would talk to the student over the first couple of lessons to find out whether I think they would benefit from those books.

For song writing and theory students: I would expect them to have blank musical notation paper. I would provide scores/books for study for the first several lessons. Later, I may ask them to purchase certain books if I feel it would help them.

*** Specialties ***
My background is mainly in classical music (although I have been playing keyboards in a rock band for the past several years).

I have been studying classical piano since I was 5, and I also studied it while pursuing my Bachelors degree in music at USC.

I have been teaching Beginning-Advanced music theory to college undergraduates for the past 2 years.

I hold a Masters degree in Music (my emphasis was music composition) from University of California, Irvine

I have been taking piano lessons with Anahit for 2,5 years. I was recommended by an acquaintance, whose technique I admired and I also saw the improvement immediately after she started taking classes with Anahit. I am so glad I made the decision to commit full time and let Anahit work her magic. She has certainly taken me to new levels of knowledge, skill and technique. If anyone is serious about playing the piano, especially as a career, look no further. Aside being a master of her craft, she is kind, professional and polite. I highly recommend her!

Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory.

I started piano at 4 and never looked back. I am well versed in everything from early note reading, to late romantic sonatas, jazz standards and improvisation. Whatever level you're at, I can help.

About Marshall
Hi, I'm Marshall. I was born into a family of actors, artists, and musicians and was raised on the stage of the Theatricum Botanicum in Topanga, California, a family-run theater. I started music lessons at four on piano and later began cello at twelve. As a middle and high school student, I played with community orchestras throughout Los Angeles, and after graduation from the Hamilton Academy of Music, went on to study at Cal State University, Northridge, double majoring in cello and English literature. I afterwards moved to Germany for almost a decade, studying in Trossingen, Mannheim, and Berlin, resulting in a lot of great teachers, masterclasses and performance opportunities. After recently moving back to Los Angeles, I work as an assistant to a number of different Film/TV composers here in LA as well as playing orchestra and doing st
udio work whenever I can. It's about time for some cello lessons though, wouldn't you say?

I wanted to improve my piano skills (I'm an actor- it comes in handy). So far, I've had about ten lessons with Marshall at his studio in Topanga, and I'm already so much more confident. We started out reviewing what I knew- scales, arpeggios, etc, and now we are on to full pieces (Chopin, Mozart) and sight-reading skills. Marshall is AWESOME and has a great sense of humor. Super happy to have found him.

Marshall is such a delight! My ten-year-old son has been studying cello with Marshall for the last year and has no plans of stopping. I couldn't be happier with this find. Marshall is very nurturing but also sets clear strong goals, and my son now has a much more effective at-home practice strategy. Marshall's studio is also wonderful for me- it has an outdoor garden where I can sit and read or do work during my son's lesson.

Hi there,

My name is Jade. I have over 6 years of piano teaching experience with beginner to advanced level players of all ages! As a pianist and composer myself, it is such a joy for me to share the beauty of music with more people! Over the years, I have developed a curriculum that will allow beginners to learn music notation, theory and be able to play songs within no time! But of course, if you like to play by ear, no problem! All lessons will be customized so each student can learn at his/her own pace.
When pursuing my Master's degree in Music Ed, I learned a lot about working with younger students. I know exactly how to keep their attentions to the class and guide them to practice willingly.
For adult learners, if you just want to learn a particular song, or need a little boost for college piano tests, I can help you too! I'm bilingual in English and Mandarin Chinese, so lessons could be given in both :)

Are you ready for the adventure? Let's get started!
