Citrus Heights, CA

View Full Profile

Harmonic approach to playing stressing chord progression. I play all types of music from classical, to ragtime, blues and new age.

About Ronald
With a Bachelor's Degree in music from California State University Sacramento I studied with the best, including graduates from Juilliard and Eastman. I focus on what my students want to play and provide a harmonic grounding to enable the student to improvise or just "jam" with anybody. I also provide a positive reinforcement atmosphere and will accept ground floor beginners to advanced intermediate students.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe it's important to create a relaxed, stress free lesson atmosphere to encourage creativity and self confidence. While mistakes are expected I believe building a students self confidence will make those mistakes disappear. We'll start with fundamentals which will build your understanding of what you're playing and be able to apply it to whatever music you wish to play.

*** Travel Equipment ***
S
tudent must have own piano.

*** Specialties ***
I read music and can sight read any style. I specialize in classical, but also play jazz, ragtime and new age music.

About David
I have been a working musician and occasional private music teacher for over 40 years. During that time I had a career in the professional audio and video industry, during which I learned how to successfully deal with people. I recently returned to school and completed a Bachelor of Music in Music Education degree at CSU Sacramento. My goal is to bring excitement and enthusiasm for music and playing an instrument to my students, and to create musicians who will make and enjoy music throughout their lives. I play guitar, bass guitar and flute, and enjoy teaching all of them to all age groups.

*** Lesson Details ***
Playing music is supposed to be fun. Lessons include playing, so they should be fun as well. My lessons are both focused and fun. I believe you get out of music what you put in. If a student doesn't practice in between lesso
ns, I will know. If a student does practice, I will know that as well. My lessons stress not only what to practice, but how. In 3-6 months, the beginning student can expect to be able to make a pleasing sound on the instrument, and be able to play beginning repertoire. Most importantly, the student will be able to play well enough to enjoy the instrument, which inevitably leads to more productive practice and continued improvement. This continued improvement is what lessons are all about.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If I travel to a student's home, I will bring my instrument only. I expect the student to provide all other equipment necessary for the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
Folk guitar, rock and roll and blues bass, classical flute, analog and digital recording, music theory

piano and horn students have enjoyed playing from a wide variety of musical
styles from classical to modern.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano

*** Specialties ***
I choose from a variety of publications, depending on the nature of the student. I strive to have my students become well rounded by learning a variety of music literature and learning theory, scales, chord progressions, and integrate sight-reading as a regular component of lessons.

About Esther
I'm Esther, a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself piano and singing in a choir at the age of 9. I moved to the U.S. in 1992 and studied music for 10 years receiving my B.M. & M.M in music at California State University of Sacramento. I studied and trained with Claudia Kitka & Jackie Victorino for voice and Kirsten Smith, Joan McDe, & Angel Mamn for piano. I have performed many solo concerts in the U.S. as well as South Korea.

I find a student's strengths and weaknesses using various ways to encourage each student. I am very patient, kind, flexible, and enthusiastic and I love working with children as much as adults. I strongly support basic skills: sight-reading, pitch and tone.

I have 30 years experience teaching kids and adults private piano and 14 yrs voice coaching (early period to contemporary). I sp
eak fluent Korean and English.

*** Lesson Details ***
My objectives: to help students powerfully communicate through the essence of music and aid the development of children and adults by finding their strengths and weaknesses and to develop their skills and show their musical talents. I emphasize basic skills, good sight-reading, and Solfege skills (Do-Re-Me...etc), vocal technique, vocal performance, and Alexandria technique. Students participate in their own recital and show their musical talents.

Lessons are held at either your home, or mine using composers from various time periods that speaks to the individual student.
Also,I do prefer to work a weekly student.
A beginner lesson may be 10-15 min. for warm-ups and scales, 10-15 min. theory and 10 min. playtime. In three to six months the student will be able to read sheet music and should be able to perform simple songs.

An intermediate lesson is longer, 45-50 min., with more focus on music from a specific chosen time-period. A specialty is preparation for voice and piano auditions for entering college.

I enjoy teaching children from age 5 up to adults. I also can teach beginner guitar.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, electronic keyboard, guitar.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar

*** Specialties ***
I teach the basic skills very strongly, and also encourage students and, challenge them, as well.
I also have new techniques for teaching voice and piano.
I do prefer to teach a weekly lesson.

I will definitely keep taking lessons with Esther until I move to a different state. Highly recommend her. She was very patient. Out first lesson took place at her place. I honestly never sang in front of people, though I love to rap with my friends in karaoke. I already gained so much confidence and see the difference. Cannot wait till the next lesson and learn new skills and become a better vocalist. Thank you Esther.

What's the difference between Music and Sound? Maybe you want to know the rules of composition, the theory, form and analysis of music; or maybe you just want to do things by ear. Either way, I can help you understand the complexities and simple things about the building blocks of music and aid you in finding the song in you.

About Kimberly
I grew up in a household of 9 where music was always center stage. We would sing as a family in different venues and were often called the VonTrapp family. I have enjoyed singing and performing from a young age. I began studying flute at age 8, after scoring highest in the harmony listening exam and began formal violin lessons at the age of 9. I studied all genres including, fiddle, classical, musical theater and 20th century. I have continued to study violin since then and have performed in many orchestras and small groups, such as Honor Orchestra, the Paradise Symphony, the Yuba College Orchestra, Yuba-Sutter Oratorio Society Orchestra and more. I have been concert master and first stand in many of these. I have also soloed in many and have been the first violinist in quartets for countless weddings and other events. I have also played
in numerous pit orchestras for musicals.
I have been in choirs and soloing since I can remember. I have performed and soloed in choirs such as the Yuba-Sutter Oratorio Society, CSUS Chamber Choir, the CSUS Women's Choir and more. I have toured to Victoria, Montreal, Ottowa, Oregon and Washington. I have also been in opera productions such as The Magic Flute, Peleas and Melisande and Die Fledermaus (The Bat) with CSUS Opera. I am a recent recipient of the Saturday Club Scholarship, a prestigious award, and have won many competitions (some repeatedly) both vocally and with violin, such as the Tri-County Competition, Young Artist Competitions, and the California Soloist and Ensemble Competitions. Additionally, I have performed musical theater repertoire and have performed as lead in musicals such as Beauty and the Beast and Into the Woods. I have also soloed repeatedly with the Yuba College jazz band and at churches all around.
I have earned my Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from CSU Sacramento. I have my Associates Degrees in both Music and Early Childhood Education from Yuba College. Additionally, I have obtained my certificate of completion of training from Music Together, an organization which trains teachers to teach Basic Music Competence (both in tonality and meter), and am currently teaching this curriculum.
I have been teaching music privately for over ten years to all ages, genders and abilities. Additionally, I have taught ages 0-5 years in a preschool setting for 7 years and am extremely familiar with developmentally appropriate practices for both preschool and school age, as I am a site supervisor at a child development center with a preschool and after school program. I have had many adult students as well and encourage adults to enrich their lives with music at any age! Additionally, I have experience teaching parent child classes and am familiar with how to teach to the particular needs of each family and student.
I'm extremely excited and looking forward to growing as a professional, both teaching and performing, in both the areas of violin and voice and to be instrumental in your musical growth too; I can't wait to share my passion with you and to ignite your passion for music too!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have been teaching since 2002 and have loved every minute of it! I teach all ages. I tailor my style of teaching to each student's goals and to what works for you. If you want to learn Taylor Swift music, I won't be giving you arias. On the other hand, if you wish to study classically, I have repertoire appropriate for you. I teach fiddle, classical, orchestral, 20th century and more for violin students and have experience with jazz, classical, musical theater, pop, religious, spiritual, choral, 20th century and more vocally.
For violin students, I use the Suzuki method as a pushing off point, a tried and true method used in many countries across the world, though I have other repertoire including fiddle, orchestra, small ensemble, solo, concertos, Christmas, and more. For vocalist, I start with the book, Adventures in Singing. I also have warm ups and exercises to keep you vocally healthy. I will teach you anything you want to learn! I also teach how to read music, theory and harmony, depending on your interest and tailored to your current skill level.
I am encouraging and knowledgeable. I will meet you at your current level, be that beginner, intermediate, or advanced. My students can look forward to being encouraged and growing through their time with me. I don't have preset ideas about where you should be in 3-6 months, nor do I have a one size fits all teaching style. Instead, I will work with you individually so that you will become the best musician you can be, meet your goals, and increase your enjoyment and appreciation for music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in open space, upright piano, digital piano, music stands, metronome, violins available for rent, music, staff paper and computer

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect my students to provide the instrument with all of it's accessories (ie shoulder rest, rosin, bow and case) along with the appropriate level Suzuki book. I have instruments available for rent. My voice students should bring their own music also. I have a piano in my studio along with music stands. Of course, every student must have a pencil and come ready to have fun learning! :)

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki, solfege, art songs and arias, reading music, fiddle, classical, healthy vocal technique and musical theater. I am very good at working with any age.

Kim can teach you or your child, no matter where you are!

I was 30 when I decided to rekindle my love for the violin. I hadn’t played since before YouTube was invented, and I was skeptical about learning violin online. By the first lesson, Kim had already corrected poor habits I didn’t know I had, just after hearing me play a few scales. She adjusted her teaching style to my personality so seamlessly that I felt I was just getting pointers from a dear violinist friend whose advice is always spot-on. Weekly practice never felt like work, because Kim tailored my assignments to my goals. Before I knew it, I was playing complex concertos I could never do in high school. I started out being able to play just one major scale. Within 10 months, I was in Suzuki Book 4!
I can’t say enough about Kim’s expert teaching skills. During a sight-reading of a very difficult piece, I became so frustrated that I wanted to stop the lesson and try again later. Kim encouraged me until I had gotten all the way through, and pointed out what I could learn from my performance. When I had time to calm down, I realized that Kim can do this for any student; adults, children, and adults whose inner child throws a tantrum when they’re frustrated by a musical challenge. :-)

Teachers like Kim are rare, and worth their weight in gold. I learned so much more than violin fundamentals through my lessons with her. I’m convinced Kim can teach anyone, of any age—even through an online platform.

Sacramento, CA

We will cover very basic to intermediate level music theory. From learning how to read/ identify notes, chords, rhythm and understand symbols written in sheet music. Once those concepts are understood, we can cover the form of classical music pieces and jazz charts.

About Brianne
Hello! My name is Brianne and I am a professional performer, actress, and vocalist. Originally residing in LA, I decided to further my education and experience by enrolling in the jazz voice program at CSU Sacramento.

From as early as elementary school, I began singing and performing in my church choir and musicals. Once I got older, I began to take vocal lessons at Van Tuyl Music Academy in Huntington Beach, at which I continued to do for 6 years. At the age of 16, I began performing as a professional lead singer of the wedding and entertainment band High Altitude. I currently perform as a lead singer of ESSEX, an entertainment band that is well known in the Sacramento region.

Though voice is my primary focus of study, theatre and musical theatre is another huge passion of mine. Throughout my high school years, I have also been
in a variety of professional theatre productions, playing Hermia in A Midsummer Night's Dream, the Witch in Into The Woods, And a dancer/ Marguerita in Steven Sondheim's West Side Story.

In the middle of high school, I became more intrigued by the jazz genre, and the beauty and complexity that lies in a vocal jazz ensemble. While performing with Downey High School Epic Jazz Choir, we performed and often placed in the top 3 at the Monterey, Folsom, Reno jazz festivals. We also had the honor of performing at the JEN jazz festival held in New Orleans, Louisiana. I currently perform with CSUS Voices under the direction of Gaw Vang Williams. Last winter, we had the honor of sharing the stage with the very well established vocal jazz group New York Voices.

Though I mainly sing contemporary music and RnB, I truly love all styles and can teach students the foundational and essential vocal technique that can be applied to any style of music you want to sing and perform. I can also give guidance on how to read music at a beginning and intermediate level and how to play the ukelele and piano as an accompaniment to singing. As a musician, it is very important to me that a student developes their knowledge of music as well as their own beautiful and unique sound. By working together, I know we can achieve it! :)

About Pamela
Hi! My name is Pam. If you have a song in your heart , a love for music and a desire to sing, let me show you how you can sing your best. As I began my own classical training I was frequently frustrated because my range was limited, and there were breaks in my voice. My teachers didn’t know how to help me so they criticized me and were not able to help me. It took years to find a mature, experienced teacher who understood how to use good vocal technique to help me express my artistic musicality.

After more than 20 years of teaching and performing, I know how to teach a successful vocal technique that works. I want to share the knowledge and technique I have acquired with you. Let me help you develop your voice to its fullest potential.

I teach a comprehensive course of study. It includes classical vocal techniques to improve range
, ear training, breath control, vibrato, tone production, diction and beginning music theory. My formal education includes Leonard Davis Center of Performing Arts Bachelor of Arts Degree - Music Major from the City University of New York, Masters degree in Education, and opera workshops and private lessons from Judith Raskin, Soprano and Mario Berini, Tenor of the Metropolitan Opera.

When I came to Pamela for voice instruction I had a limited range. There were lots of songs I wanted to sing but because I had a low voice I couldn't reach the high notes. Pamela showed me how to use breath support breathing and how to sing the vowels of every word so that the songs flow. Also I have more confidence in my singing now and I am making really fast progress.

Pamela K's classical voice coaching was hugely responsible for preparing me to launch a professional singing career. She taught me correct breathing, the dynamics of shading, stage presence, foreign (and English) language diction and pronunciation, and most importantly the TECHNIQUE of classical singing.
Her coaching expertise and patience helped me to achieve my goals of tone/pitch, volume/dynamics and stage presence.
Thanks to Ms. K's coaching I landed the lead role last year in the Musicale des Artistes Repertory Co. production of "Candide"
