About Cody
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me.
I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble with it in their classes.
Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and
understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music.
I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on.
I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Alesis Recital Keyboard
Music sheets
Web cam
Mac computer (MacBook Pro)
Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music paper for away lessons.
Finale for composition and music theory lessons.
Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.

*** Specialties ***
I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media.
I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music.
I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

This was the 1st violin lesson for my 5 year old daughter. And it went far better than expected. Mrs. Rui is a wonderful teacher. Patient, warm, and very talented with teaching young children. I was impressed to see how much my daughter learned in only 45 minutes. When it was over my daughter said, "That was so much fun!". My daughter is looking forward to her next lesson.

As a brand new adult student, I had concerns that I could find an instructor who could work with my sometimes-busy schedule. Anna enthusiastically agreed to teach me though, and after almost a year of taking lessons with her I've seen great progress! Anna shares her wealth of knowledge in a friendly and encouraging manner, and has happily tailored my curriculum to fit my interests. I'd highly recommend her to any student, without hesitation!

I'm a professional lead guitarist and I currently play in 3 bands. One of which is signed to a record deal. I spent much of the past 5 years touring, writing and recording for my bands and with internationally known artists/celebrities and Grammy award winners. I have a very laid back teaching style you will learn what you want to learn at your own pace my goal is to give you all the tools you need to become the musician that you want to be.

I can teach most genres like rock, blues, metal, funk etc. but I would be a great fit for anyone trying to play odd meters, math rock or any two handed tapping techniques, improvise solos or even rnb/soul.

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 cristine
I am a Musicians Institute graduate. guitar player, singer/songwriter, performer and recording artist. I have an Associates degree in Communication studies. I am a guitar instructor at Guitar Center and have been background checked by my employer. In addition to my self released album on Amazon and CD Baby, I performed originals and cover tunes at various coffee houses and pubs in the U.S as well as abroad.
In order to help students easily understand basic music theory such as scales and how chords are constructed, my teaching skills entail some understanding of the piano and how it relates to the guitar. My idea of teaching is to supply the tools needed so that my students can learn a song on their own just by knowing how to read guitar chord charts and tab. I also can provide tips on live performances such as overcoming stage fright.

As a soloist and teacher I have sung and taught many different genres. I don't believe in forcing a specific genre on my students. We work together to find songs that will help them grow while having fun. I love to see my students grow in technique and ability. When I hear their range grow as well it brings me satisfaction and joy! I love to see my student's confidence grow as well; especially when they hit that note "they couldn't hit" or nail that song that was "too hard." Breathing technique is key to your success and growth. Not all techniques are equal. Let me help you become the best singer you can be!
