I am a highly qualified and experienced teacher, and adapt my approach and pace to the needs and personality of each student. I ensure they can read the notes they are playing so they can become independent musicians. I have proven success in taking students up to the top level of the ABRSM exams, and I am a member of the California Music Teachers Association. I teach either in English or French using both musical systems (do re mi or ABC).

My qualifications are:

* master of music (piano pedagogy), Notre Dame de Namur University, Belmont, CA (GPA: 4.0)
* state piano teaching diploma, France
* gold medal in piano performance, Conservatoire National
* bachelor of arts degree in musicology, Sorbonne, Paris (cum laude)

I speak both English and French languages.

Very detailed and precise, focuses on why each technique is used and also touches on the history of terms and periods. Also she is very nice and funny.
Sam M.
Laurence is the best! Lessons with her are one of the best parts of my week. She is a master of piano pedagogy, ready with a solution to any trouble I'm having with the exercises, sight reading or music I'm working on. She loves to joke around and have fun but is very serious and passionate about music at the same time. It's a perfect balance! Can't recommend more.
Kurt
Laurence is an excellent teacher. She was understanding when the schedule needed to be changed due to my scheduling needs. She provided the appropriate amount of encouragement and patience, especially when my practicing was limited. I learned a great deal from Laurence and highly recommed her.

I have taught piano off and on since I was a teenager and consecutively for the past five years. I enjoy children ages 5 and up, beginners and intermediates, and beginning adults. I choose the curriculum according to the student's age, ability, learning style and choice. My primary goal is for the students to have a positive experience with piano and to look forward to coming each week so that they will want to continue piano or another instrument in the future. I have a lot of incentives for the students and experience much success in this area. I charge very low fees as some clients are unsure of their ability to learn at first. I am very flexible, patient and non-judgmental, and I love what I do.

I live on the west side of the valley and teach in my home. It is a warm, open, family-oriented environment and I welcome siblings to come and play with toys or read while the other is in the lesson. We have a recital at the end of the school year, held in my home.

Great first lesson, really excited to continue learning from Judy!

Judy had my son up and playing in no time. She was great about setting a pace that will keep him challenged and confident simultaneously. He loves his lessons and looks forward to learning more. My youngest, after observing a class, has decided he would like to play too!

Saxophone is my primary instrument and the one I am the most excited about. I've been teaching saxophone for a year and my students have gone on to perform in area-all-state competitions and concerts in the NY area. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play a few folk songs and as time goes on you'll be able to read treble clef. I specialize in classical, typically use Tune-A-Day or Jump Right In books, and have the following tools available for your lessons: metronome, and laptop. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I have been teaching classical and electric guitar for about 9 years and I structure my lessons according to a student's goals, and objectives on the instrument. My students have been able to learn tunes by ear, and understand chord progressions and structures, and play with a pick or finger style!
I specialize in rock, metal, classical and jazz, and I can also teach extended range guitars and alternate tunings. Learn to shred, sweep, alternate pick and hybrid pick like no one's business!

Michael
Poh Hock is a well-rounded and versatile teacher. He is capable in many styles of playing and has a powerful understanding of music theory to reinforce his teaching. He is very patient and relaxed; I never feel stressed preparing for or during lessons. He is able to tailor his lessons more around exercises or learning songs depending on the wants and needs of the students. I've been taking music lessons in different instruments for 10+ years; learning with Poh Hock has singularly been the most positive and productive experience in that time.
Phillip Wrenbeck W.
Poh is awesome. He's super talented and educated in music. He has a great personality and challenges me in a positive way. I'm always looking forward to the next lesson!
Julian
Poh Hock is a great teacher that really has a passion for playing and teaching guitar. His style of teaching is very precise and methodical. I learned a lot of songs taking lessons with him but more importantly Poh Hock taught me how to practice material that I was working on. The lessons were really more like guided practice sessions. While some teachers that I've had might just use the lesson to teach material and have me practice over the week, Poh Hock used lesson time to really drill sections and get them to sound good. I absolutely recommend Poh Hock as a teacher for anyone who seriously wants to improve their playing and their approach to music in general.

Learning to play guitar has been a solid foundation in my musical career. It has helped train my ear to hearing musical harmonies and reinforced music theory and rhythm as well. Learn to play and strum along with your favorite songs!

I am a Brazilian guitar player who started by playing blues and rock on the electric guitar, and then moved into Samba, Bossa Nova and fingerstyle on the nylon-string guitar. Today, I play mostly Latin styles and a little bit of Flamenco. I also have a year of conservatory training under my belt, as well as a background in West African percussion, and culminate all of these styles together as a composer.

As a teacher, I cater to your aptitude and your goals and make sure that you are having fun while you grow. That means learning actual repertoire of music that you want to study. Some students want more music theory than others: and that's totally fine! But I like to always have a song as a context to study that theory. Afterall, we want to use theory to actually make music!

About Thomas

My name is Tomas. I am a Brazilian-American polyglot musician and language instructor. I play music and teach English/Portuguese for a living, and have been doing so for the past 7 years! I also learned Spanish and French through music, so I know a lot about those languages and the styles of music

"Amazing teacher

Andrew is really an amazing guitarist and teacher. As a female, at first I was nervous to show up at a "random" male teacher's door, but he made me feel really comfortable right away. I feel I'm really progressing with him, more than I could ever have done on my own.
Thanks Andrew!"
