I'm specialized in my unique integrated Suzuki method so that you will develop both strong ears and fingers. Any levels and ages are welcome!

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

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.

I was inspired to start lessons from watching the last season of American Idol. I started with a 12 pack of online lessons. I was so nervous to sing out load (even in the privacy of my home) but Melody was always positive and encouraging. Even though I didn't practice as much as I should, to my surprise I've gotten better at hitting notes. It's helped even at work (female engineer) for me to easily speak louder and lower when needed. I've been taking lessongs for over a year now and it's still challenging but I always feel awesome afterwards (just like a great workout!) When I listen to singers now I have a whole level of of appreciation. It's like Melody introduced a new language. She's an awesome singer herself and I aspire to sing like her!

She is not overly strict nor critical, which fits well with my son's personality. She is mind-mannered so we do not feel pressure or discouraged when you are just learning and making mistakes. We are pleased with the progress my son has made in the past 10 months.

I've studied with some of the greats, such as Tigran Hamasyan, Vardan Ovsepian, Adam Benjamin, Josh Nelson, and Gary Fukushima. My band recently won the 2015 International Downbeat Student Music Awards for the small combo division. I have a very nice U3 piano at my home that I use to teach lessons. I've been teaching for about 4 years now.

About Mesrop
My musical journey began when I was about 10 years old, when my parents decided to enroll me into a music school. There I studied classical music till I was about 18. When I was 19, I decided to go to school for jazz. After spending a lot of time deliberating schools, I decided to go to CSUN. While there, I studied with some of the best teachers in LA, and some of the best in the world. I studied with musicians like Tigran Hamasyan, Ari Hoenig, Josh Nelson, Ben Wendel, Adam Benjamin, and Vardan Ovsepian. After graduating, I decided to broaden my musical knowledge and began studying all types of music. Because of that, I'm able to teach almost any style. Here is a list of subjects that I offer:

- Jazz
- Classical
- Hip Hop
- R&B
- Pop
- Rock
- Funk
- Music Theory
- Sight Singing
- Harmony
- Counterpoint
- Composition

I be
lieve in designing lessons around each student's goals and needs, so every student gets a personally tailored lesson plan that will help excel them into being an amazing musician. I believe that great music teachers leave lasting impressions on their students. I wish to impart on my students the same lessons and experiences that have influenced me throughout my journey.

I've always enjoyed playing guitar and bass, but the added element of piano was something that seemed so daunting I convinced myself to let it go. Mesrop was able to break it down so simply for me from the start, and I'm extremely thankful for his patience and focus throughout lessons. Along the way, I picked up more on theory and am now more comfortably able to transcribe as well. I think he's a tremendous musician but an equally excellent teacher.

Students can expect a great time learning the basics of how to make music on the piano. We'll start with basic music theory, how to make sense of the piano keys and music notation and exercises for finger dexterity like scales and arpeggios. I am totally into integrating songs and styles of music that you enjoy listening to and would like to learn how to play. I'm well versed in classical piano, jazz, pop, rock and blues. Tell me what you want to learn to play and I'll show you how to play it!

About Lynn
I have been studying voice and piano and performing on stage in various capacities since I was a small child, acting professionally on stage, in films and TV for most of my adult life. I've been blessed to study with countless music luminaries in varying genres, from jazz and classical to rock n' roll and blues.

I studied music at the university level both at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in NYC. I received my BFA in Jazz Vocal Performance from The New School in 2008. I was given an incredible foundation in ear-training, music theory, composition, arranging and song-writing through these institutions.

My diverse music education and experience means I am able to teach music in many different styles and music of many different genres. I can accompany my students on piano a
nd help them to prepare for auditions. I can teach how to read music, to play classically on the piano, to read jazz charts, or help you figure out parts for a chord progression for a pop or rock song.

My acting training is equally many-faceted and I have an incredibly strong foundation based in the teachings of Sanford Meisner, Stanislavsky, Lee Strasberg and Larry Moss. I use the knowledge of these great teachers along with the wisdom I've accumulated from MY mentors over the years in my teaching and coaching.

I played piano for 13 years, from ages 5 to 18, and then just stopped when I went away to college. I had aptitude for the instrument but did not have the discipline to sit down and practice. Fast forward 17 years, and I get intimidated just looking at a piano! I realized if I ever wanted to play again I'd have to find an instructor. It was so easy to find Evelyn via Red Pelican Music, and I started classes right away. It was a little frustrating to start from square one, but I know I really had to (I'd forgotten so much!). Evelyn was always encouraging and knew exactly what I needed to hear and learn. She also knew just when to introduce actual classical pieces instead of having me focus on the beginner books with short pieces and music theory. I love working with her and have made so much progress in the <6 months we have been working together. I would highly recommend her to any beginner or to someone re-starting as a beginner. And, of course, she's a highly accomplished pianist, so any skilled pianists looking for instruction would benefit from her teaching.
