About Celine
I hold a MA in Piano Performance from Azusa Pacific University. I have been teaching piano for all ages and all levels since 2002. I had formal training in Suzuki pedagogy method from the Suzuki certified trainer. Over the last ten years, I have been integrating Suzuki method with various modern piano pedagogies to teach beginners and received positive feedback from students and parents. I believe that students under my integrated method usually progress much faster than the ones under traditional Suzuki method.

In addition to piano teaching, I also teach all levels of accordion and violin (Suzuki Method).

I am patient, friendly, cheerful and good at customizing my lessons to meet individual student's needs. I believe all students have potential to master skills as long as they have strong self-discipline, perseverance and supporti
ve family and good teachers.

I welcome all of students and parents to contact me to start a joyful learning journey with me. You will get your time and money worth!

*** Lesson Details ***

Beginner: Within a month, you will learn how to count the beat, and how to read music notes (treble clef). There is a great emphasis on the ear training and music theory throughout the course of the lessons.

Intermediate and advanced students: I will help you get rid of incorrect or unhealthy habits such as postures, hand positions, etc; and further build you strength in sight-reading and music theory. I customize your study repertoire based on your own personality, interest and musical goals so that you always feel motivated to study musical instruments with me.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
I'm willing to travel to the student's house for private lessons if it is at an hour lesson. Additional $5 will apply.

*** Specialties ***
Music
-Suzuki and traditional method for piano
- Accordion
- Music theory, ear training, music history

I LOVE taking piano lessons with Celine! She’s a great teacher and a very kind and sweet person. She is by far the most knowledgeable piano teacher I’ve had. Celine’s teaching style is very flexible—she’s great for a serious player because she’s very thorough and also for a beginner because she’s so kind and patient. I’ve played the piano for many years and Celine has really helped me improve. She’s taught me how to practice effectively at home and helps me notice details in the music I wasn’t taught before. Celine is clearly very passionate about what she does. I always enjoy my lessons and I highly recommend taking lessons with her!

My daughter started her lesson with music school group class, while it is fun and fundamental, it starts to get harder as the year pass.
She need more one to one attention with experience teacher who could help her with the details that the group class cannot provide. We are so grateful to have Ms. Celine. She is so patience. Her teaching supported my daughter skill that lack from group class and my daughter is happy to learn piano which in turn make her do more practice and improve her skill. I am very satisfied.

Celine is a wonderful piano teacher! She is patient, works well with children, and is truly dedicated to developing her students. My 6-year-old son had no musical background and she has since taught him how to sight-read in a short amount of time! She encourages a little bit of music book homework, helps with posture, finger positioning, proper technique, etc. and makes each lessons fun and enjoyable. She is an expert in everything music and is very responsive to any questions I have. My son looks forward to each of his lessons. I highly recommend Celine!

About Jessica
I have 20 years of playing experience along with a Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. I was the section leader of my university's orchestra as well as a full-scholarship member of the university quartet. As a professional gigging musician, I have played with Il Divo, Mario Winans, La Jolla Symphony, Doctor's Symphony, Porta Caeli Chamber Players, and the quartet La Dolce.

I am a member of MTAC (Music Teacher's Association of California) and can sign my students up for Certificate of Merit. This is a music study program with an annual evaluation and written assessment. Stand-out students will be invited to play at the Branch Recital.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons differ slightly depending on the student. In general, it starts with scales for intonation or working on vibrato, moves on to an etude or exercise, and culminate
s with work on a piece of music. But not every student works well with this method, so I will add in some musical worksheets and ear training games for those that require lessons with more variety.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can come to your home to teach. I will bring all necessary method books and teaching materials.

Jessica is a very good and kind instructor. Perfect for my 12-year-old who has a sensitive heart when being corrected by others. She is patient and takes the time to come up with creative solutions when something isn't working as it should. As a parent, I appreciate the detailed notes she sends me letting me what happened in the lesson and what she'd like done during practice time. She also provides links to additional instruction videos if she feels like her explanation isn't making sense. I feel like she really goes beyond and wants to help them learn, not just assign practice pieces. Thanks, Jessica! - so glad we found you!

MUSIC!
I think music is the most beautiful thing in the world, so lets take time to learn and play music together.
I have been playing the drums for over sixteen years, and been in over fifteen bands in the course of that time. I have a degree in Music from the Berklee College of Music were I studied music theory and focused on Music Production and Engineering. I have been playing Piano, Bass, and Guitar for about ten years in addition to the drums, and have been recorded in sessions on each. I have a deep passion for synthesizers and electronic music, so lets make some bleeps and bloops together.

I am extremely kind, friendly, and funny so lessons with me are very relaxed and have an easy to learn environment. However I am very passionate about teaching to fit student needs; so if a student likes deadlines and homework, if that is w
hat will help them learn the best, then that is how I will teach.
Lets make some sweet music together!!

About Lauren
As a vocalist, synth-player, composer, and producer, I use my knowledge and experience in technology based professions to explore the relationship between music and tech.

As a “synth-enthusiast” who uses analog synths in sound design , I have cultivated a vivid musical aesthetic under the moniker mini bear, with which I have written, produced, and released 2 EPs and 1 full length album. Illustrating a sound rich in 80s referenced romantic nostalgia, mini bear has garnered praise and recognition from respected media such as Grimy Goods, Impose Magazine and international indie press. I am currently an active performer in Los Angeles, and I have played at local venues such as The Echo, Resident, The Hi Hat, Bootleg Theatre, Moroccan Lounge, and The Satellite.

My role as a teacher has grown over the span of 10+ years. As a Creative
Trainer at the Apple store, I taught customers Logic Pro in both private one-on-one and workshop settings. I have also taught workshops on Ableton topics through Play Like A Girl and IO Music Academy. In addition to teaching adults, I have taught music production and Ableton to children ages 10-15 at Girls Rock music camp. I have been producing in Ableton Live for the past five years, and I provide consulting sessions to determine work flow efficiency. Content and teaching styles are customized based upon the learners skills and learning styles.

Lauren is the best. I had taken a few online tutorials in Ableton, but it wasn’t until I had help putting all the pieces together in person that it started to click.

She is friendly, patient and she has an incredible understanding of Ableton. Highly recommended and grateful for her lessons.

About Lia
I am a professional jazz vocalist, voice teacher, session singer, and bunny mom. I grew up around music and have loved to sing for as long as I can remember. I believe that exposure to music is the best way to learn how to do it. My parents are both singers so, naturally, we sang together around the house, in the car, etc.

I believe this exposure is what gave me the drive to become the performer and teacher I am today. Hands Down. I started out singing show tunes with my dad and classic rock/rock with my mom. I taught myself how to play guitar in middle school and this is when the solo-performer in me really started to develop. High school gave me choral music and folk/pop and college gave me jazz. Jazz is my main gig. I have been singing jazz music since 2010 and transformed into a full fledged jazzer along the way.

I believe th
at doing what you love to do can transform your whole outlook on life and work. I do what I love and that is all I can ask for.

I'm a female heavy metal singer and took 12 years off to raise a family so I needed help with pitch, power, control, strength, and development with my upper range and Lia delivered. What I was not expecting--and was pleasantly surprised by--was her additional instruction on adding more emotion through specialized breathing techniques and helping me move out of my comfort zone and attempt to tackle much tougher material. For someone so young in years, she is an old soul and has so much amazing experience to teach from. I've also seen her perform live covering extremely difficult songs and was blown away...even brought tears to my boyfriend's eyes when she sang his song request perfectly. I did not know her prior to my lessons. I met her randomly by emailing my local music store and inquired about lessons. She is worth every penny and I highly recommend her.

About Gary
I have been serving the young people of my community for the last 36+ years as an elementary school music teacher. I graduated from Cal State University Fullerton with a BA in Music Education and a K-12 teaching credential in music. I have taught a wide range of music classes including general music, choir, piano, orchestra and band. My classroom experience includes early childhood (K-5th grade), english learners and special needs students.

I enjoy working with students who have had limited musical knowledge or experience. I love bringing them to a level of proficiency where they can be confident performers on their chosen instrument. Some of my students have continued their music education through college and others have brought their love of music into their careers as adults.

I realize that I not only teach music, but I teach ind
ividuals. So I tailor and fit my music instruction to the unique aptitudes and needs of each child. I want to communicate the fun of creating music as well as the technical aspects of playing an instrument. You can expect your student to gain a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music and instrumental technique. I offer private instruction for students who wish to learn the trombone or the violin. I also advise and assist parents in choosing a serviceable instrument for their student to rent or own. This has been a real help to several parents and families over the years. Contact me for more information. I’d love to be of help.

Mr. Gary has been teaching our son trombone for a few months now and we have been delighted with his teaching.
Mr. Gary is very patient with our son, and has ignited a real love of the instrument and given our son confidence. He never gets short and is always calm and encouraging, even when our son is not into it at all.
He teaches the fundamentals of breath, playing musically and how to take care of the instrument.
Mr. Gary is always encouraging and positive, and that helps to encourage a love for the music and instrument. Our son has definitely taken to the trombone and a lot of that is due to Mr. Gary's great teaching.
