Piano technic, reading music, and learning to express your self on the piano....all of this will be taught in a fun but challenging way

About Ronda
My love of music started at the young age of 6 with piano lessons. My parents always said, "piano lessons were the best investment they ever made." Because of their investment it took me through my growing up years playing piano and singing at church and school then into college with a music major. I also auditioned and made the specialty touring "Vanguard Choral Group" and had the experience of producing a record back in the day. Taking what I had learned is now a joy to share with you.

As a private teacher, I can promise you an enjoyable and very rewarding experience - smiles and laughter are guaranteed! My number one goal for each of my students is to foster confidence in one's self and one's abilities and to grow one's skills with the passion in music.

For more than 30 years I have taught private piano and vocal lessons. I also
have taught K-12th Music classes in Private Schools and directed children and adult choirs in churches. My joy in life is sharing my love for music with you!

*** Lesson Details ***
Our lessons will be filled with fun, yet challenging. I am patient and very encouraging with every student. I understand that every student learns in a way that's unique to them and I will do my best to discover your best learning method.

I believe it is important for you to have a strong foundation of learning to read notes and understanding the basics of music. Each lesson will conclude with an assignment of songs given to work on throughout the week. These will be the same songs worked on during the lesson time, so you will go home with the knowledge to master each song. Music theory and technique exercises will also be included in the assignments.

Daily practice is strongly urged and will be rewarded. The amount of practice time varies by age and level of skill.

Within the first 3 - 6 months you will understand the basics and start feeling confident in becoming the pianist or vocalist you desire. Everyone learns at their own pace but with your desire and a little hard work and me as your guide and cheerleader you will succeed!

I use the Bastien and Alfred method books. I will also introduce Christmas, Pop, Jazz, Christian, Classical and Broadway Hits for variety as time goes on.

Looking forward to meeting you!

The basic approach provides a series of exercises and music from simple to the more sophisticated, along with hints and tips for their completion.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe many of my students enjoy my class and are able to achieve a higher skill level because I make it a point to personally motivate them. I give them personalized goals to reach and/or tailored practice techniques.Based on response, I may offer words of encouragement or tips such as how to ease sore muscles or an alternative way to execute a technique they are finding extra difficult.

I make it a point to not just teach music grammar and/or fundamentals of music, but to include the importance of the sound of music s
trategies to enhance their skill development.

About Cody W.

Close
Diamond Bar, CA

View Full Profile

What you'll expect is a mix of sight reading, technique learning and playing, book performance and improvisation by ear for each lesson in the style the student wishes to learn about. If needed, I also write individual exercises tailored to each student and their practice routine. I teach them all of the major, minor and modal scales, chords, arpeggios, proper hand positioning and fingering. I teach many ages, especially beginners up to level 5 in piano levels.

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.

Reviews from Others:

About Rhonda
With over 20 years of experience as a musician, piano teacher, and music director, I am able to explore all aspects of musical theory and make the piano an enjoyable and exciting instrument to learn to play.

My lessons will be rhythmically exciting, and never boring. I always have book lessons as well as personal musical pieces that the student would like to work on. I most often will incorporate ear training in all of my lessons without being obvious about it, as well as performance. I believe it should be music that speaks to the heart.

Not only will students achieve their goals in learning to play their favorite song or actually play well, they will find a peace and a calm in freely exploring the art of music. Whether they find it to be an escape from it all, or their future with a musical career, it shall be achieved.

D
id you know that a troubled child can find rest and recovery from getting involved in the arts, especially that of the piano? Did you know that as a remedy from feeling despair and hopelessness, the piano is a proven healer? Wouldn't you like to play a song to a friend or a neighbor and make them feel better today? TAKE PIANO LESSONS!!... YOU ARE ON YOUR WAY...

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: 3 pianos (upright piano and 2 digital 88 keys weighted). Microphones, amps. Music stands, additional seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
A piano, or at least a 40-key keyboard instrument that has depth of sound. A good quality instrument, because if not, they will lose interest.

I have a Roland-88 key traveling digital piano instrument. This can go wherever I go. I also own a Technics Digital piano that has all sound capabilities and recording features. I also own an Howard or Baldwin Upright piano, which plays beautifully for those getting to know a true piano sound and control of its pedal.

contemporary gospel, jazz, show tunes, semi-classical

My daughter Kendra is 12 and has practiced under Rhonda for about 3 years. Kendra has simultaneously advanced in her confidence as well as in her piano skills and technique. She has displayed her knowledge at church and in front of family and friends. I have also noticed that her math concepts have been strengthened. Our practices are always friendly, warm, encouraging, and uplifting.

About Minoo
I am the member of MTAC and prepare students for the California Certificate of Merit. My teaching philosophy is based in the belief that learning music should be fun and exciting! I always encourage my students to pursue the kind of music that they find most appealing, rather than using the same curriculum and method book.

About John
I am a graduate of the Cal Poly Pomona music department looking forward to sharing my passion and knowledge with people who want to express themselves with music!

I use the John Thompson Piano book series to build understanding of written music, theory, and artistic expression. In addition to teaching classical techniques, I help guide my students on the path to writing their own music!

During my time in university I played piano with the Kellogg Soul Ensemble and the Jazz Combo. I also sang extensively with the university concert choir.

I currently play gigs with a jazz trio and a funk-rock band. I also play keyboard on recordings for local pop and hip-hop artists, and assist with arrangements and choir direction.

About Lauren W.

Close
Rancho Cucamonga, CA
View Full Profile

I have played piano for 12 years and trombone/euphonium for 7 years. I am comfortable teaching children music in many settings. My approach to teaching is to create a situation in which the student is presented with information in such a way that is both easy-to-understand but also fun and interesting, especially for younger students. It is important to me to always gauge the student's understanding of the concept at hand and provide them with frequent opportunities to ask questions specific to their needs, so that they understand all material. Furthermore, I emphasize giving the student strategies to practice and learn on their own, so that they can also grow independently outside of the lesson time.

About Lauren
I recently graduated from Etiwanda High School on 22 May 2018 with Summa Cum Laude Honors, and will now be pursuing a Music Performance degree at the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at California State University, Long Beach. I passed my ABRSM Grade 8 Piano Exam with Distinction, which is the last level of exams.

I have had a beginner piano student for 3 years, as well as several trombone and euphonium students in that time. I was also the Co-Teacher for the Freshman Concert Band at my high school for 2 years, as well as a Section Leader, Brass Captain, and Leadership Coordinator.

I was a member of many gold-medalist ensembles at my school, several honor bands such as the Pasadena City College Tournament of Roses Honor Band and The Academy Drum and Bugle Corps, and I also work as a piano accompanist.

For young beginners, the student will be oriented to Piano through black Key pieces that explore the range of the keyboard. This is followed by the off-staff note reading which teaches the student the keyboard letter names and basic rhythms.
I am a big believer in teacher-student duets for younger kids.

When I was in college I took piano pedagogy and I learned that Playing with the beginning student is one of the best ways to improve their playing, they tend to model their playing from their teacher so that benefits alone is worth it. It does make the simple piece sounds more grown-up.

The method book that I am using is the Piano Adventures Curriculum by Faber and Faber. This method book is based on discovery, creativity, and adventures through music making. There are 4 books in each level. Lesson, Performance, Theory, and Technique.

There is also an additional supplementary book that is essential for student progress. A supplementary Library that motivates practice. The ...
