All ages, all levels, various styles including: Jazz, classical, contemporary/commercial music

About Fernando
Hello there! My name is Fernando, and I bring lots of profession playing and teaching experience to the table. I am an active musician in several local bands of various styles and genres, including jazz bands, Latin jazz bands, sax quartets, church groups, and musicals. I have played across southern California, several other states including Nevada (Reno Jazz Festival), Portugal, and Mexico.

I have a Master of Music in Conducting from Messiah College, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education, from CSUF. I also hold a valid California Teaching Credential, which I completed through CSUF. I also hold an Associate of Arts degree in Music from Fullerton College.

I am currently the director of bands at Savanna High School in Anaheim, CA. I teach 3 concert band groups, Jazz band, and marching band. Previously, I was the I
nstrumental and Choral Music Teacher at Buena Park Jr. High School, in the city of Buena Park, where I taught band, orchestra, percussion, and choir.

I have also taught woodwinds for various high schools across southern California, as well as a marching/visual coach for marching bands.

I front and lead my own Christian Contemporary Band. We've recorded two albums, of which I have composed the original music/lyrics, and produced both albums. We are currently working on our third album.

I can teach everything from jazz, to classical, rock, blues, Latin genres (salsa, merengue, bolero, mambo, etc.), and even contemporary Christian music in both English and Spanish.

I mix all of these experiences and knowledge into a big melting pot, and apply it very efficiently and wisely so that my students can positively benefit from a wonderful and exciting real-world musical journey!

*** Lesson Details ***
I base my lessons around the student's needs for musical growth, and their own likes and dislikes. If there is something specific that the student wants to learn, as far as a style/genre or piece of music, I foster that and I help encourage musical growth and enjoyment around that.
I am constantly encouraging my students to listen to as much music as possible, or better yet, to watch and listen to as much live music as possible. I strongly believe that this nurtures musical growth and serves as a role model.
I am very patient and laid back, but I do expect the student to have fun while staying constant with individual practice. There is no substitution for perseverance, consistency, and hard work, but it doesn't mean that we will not have fun while we make music!

*** Studio Equipment ***
An upright Yamaha acoustic piano is available, along with a Korg and Kurzweil digital keyboards, music stands, computer music software for studying repertoire (music), a large collection/library of books containing scales, exercises, music, etc. I also can make copies or print something for you if necessary. A sound system is available for listening to something is necessary. Flute, saxophone, and clarinet students must provide their own instrument, but I can point you in the right direction in terms of acquiring an instrument either for purchase or rental from a local music retail store.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students must provide their own instrument, except piano if student comes to my home for lessons. Student must also provide books (as assigned), and metronome for practicing at home. I can carry with me things such as: saxophone, clarinet, flute, a portable music stand, metronome/tunes, pencil, paper, and any other book(s) or materials as needed.  

*** Specialties ***
I can teach classical, jazz/contemporary, funk, latin, blues, contemporary Christian, improvisation and music theory at very advanced levels.

Our lessons will be both encouraging and productive, but most importantly, will foster a love and understanding of music. Curriculum is individualized based on the student’s musical interests. Students will learn songs they love to play while also developing proper technique and important musical skills like sight-reading, a solid understanding of rhythm, music theory, and ear training. We will work together to help you achieve your goals and gain a well-rounded music education, regardless of age or musical background.

About Summer
I believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating a positive and individualized learning environment while simultaneously teaching the necessary technique and knowledge to play your instrument both successfully and confidently.
 
Above all, our lessons will focus on reaching your musical potential. Curriculum for our lessons will draw from variety of methods and aspects of music education. These include music theory, ear training, sight-reading, body mapping, technique, improvisation skills, arranging, and composition. I place a great emphasis on learning repertoire from a variety of genres of music.
 
Students will have the opportunity to share what they learn at spring and winter recitals and to participate in group lessons on a regular basis.



I have 9 years of experience teaching piano, guitar, music th
eory, and ear training to students of all ages, levels, and musical backgrounds, including students with special needs. 
 
I am currently completing my Masters degree at University of California, Irvine. Prior to my graduate studies, I was based in New York City, where I ran a private music studio, performed throughout the city with my jazz quintet, and worked as an accompanist and musical director. I graduated with honors from Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA with degrees in Performance and Audio Engineering.



Feel free to send me a message if you have any questions about lessons or scheduling!

Summer is fantastic. We first had her as an in-home instructor in Manhattan, and now that she has moved to California, we have her online. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about music, has introduced the kids to different genres, music theory and online music practice apps to keep them engaged and learning. She gives them homework "listening assignments" to help develop their ear for music. The kids have grown so much in their love of music and their ability to sight-read, play and understand music theory.

Summer is the best! She has taught my children throughout their middle childhood into their teens and during this time has introduced them to many different genres of music, which they have particularly enjoyed. In that way, she has not only taught them to play the piano excellently but has instilled in them an appreciation for music. In addition to being super-nice, patient, open-minded and very well organized, she challenges her students ceaselessly and pushes them to reach their potential. She employs a variety of different teaching methods and adjusts her style to the learner in front of her. My children related to her extremely well and they loved her.
Highly recommend

Summer is one of the best piano teachers I ever had. She makes learning piano really fun and is extremely patient with her students. It was sometimes a challenge taking lessons on a consistent basis due to my work schedule but we always managed to get around it somehow. I really enjoyed my lessons and feel that they have helped improve my skills tremendously. Thanks Summer!!

*** Lesson Details ***
Hi. My name is Art O. and I want to see you succeed in music. I love teaching students that are excited about learning their instrument. If you are interested in voice le
ssons, you will learn how to expand your range, perform on stage, and how to take care of your voice. If you are taking piano lessons, you will learn how to read notes, learn basic music theory, and learn how to read chord charts. You will advance quickly and I expect to see you performing in less than six months. If you work hard and apply yourself to practice, there is no end to what you can accomplish!

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music for singing, and piano. They must have a piano or keyboard to practice.

Inglewood, CA

Students can opt for traditional style learning using one of the popular piano methods of study to tackle the technical, theoretical knowledge, and sight readings skills necessary to become a great pianist.

Students that have already tried this approach and either found success or failure may also decide to learn with a custom tailored approach which mainly focusses on improvisation techniques, and learning by ear. Students are guided toward developing good musicianship whether choosing to focus on jazz, classical, gospel and blues, or pop and rock styles of playing.

About Paul
I am a firm believer in the power of music to heal, entertain, and teach. It is our first and most vital universal human language and as such, I believe we all have the ability to learn how to communicate beautifully with music to express our deepest feelings. As a teacher it is my privilege and pleasure to help you develop.

From classical violin to jazz piano my early musical education not only spanned genres and instruments but also geographically from Austin Texas to Madison Wisconsin and finally brought me to Los Angeles where I currently reside and produce and teach music professionally.

Helping you or your child reach your musical dreams in a friendly-nurturing environment is my sincere desire and obligation as your teacher. Discipline is required and to be expected, however, an overly rigid or demanding routine can do mo
re harm than good. I believe attention must be paid to individual learning styles. Therefore, as a teacher I have learned to observe carefully at first and custom tailor a practice routine with each student aimed at achieving their goals. I believe the study of music helps foster a deep level of self-confidence and self realization, which eventually leads the student to discover a portion of himself he would otherwise never know. My goal is to inspire others with this joy, which is everyone's birthright and an important key in finding happiness.

A gifted singer-songwriter of Pop, Rock, World and Reggae songs that possess that timeless quality. He has recorded with 2 time Grammy nominated producer Barry Goldberg (Eagles, Robbie Robertson, Verve Pipe, Marilyn Manson). He has released three CDs, had songs featured in compilations and in feature length film, toured North America, and taught guitar, piano, and voice both privately and in an all ages Montessori school in Santa Monica. He consistently played in a variety of bands while earning an A.A. in music from SMC and later a B.A. in Ethnomusicology from UCLA, where he earned distinction as an excellent student both academically and in musical performance. He brought passion to his performances with legends, Fransisco Aguabellas Afro Cuban ensemble, Brazilian Batucada ensemble, African-American gospel choir, music and dance of Ghana, and the Balinese Gamelan ensemble. As a member of several original LA bands, (Las Manchas, Samson Simpson, Toussaint, Mentone, Cloth and Spicy Fernandez) he has performed at world famous venues and toured North America. He co-wrote and co-produced the first EP records by Samson Simson with Ronen Navah, and also co-produced Mentone's first full-length record, "Empire" with Ronen Navah and Aki Ehara" Currently he is developing his new band, Spicy Fernandez, which has released a few singles on the internet and is getting a good buzz from Industry heavy weights.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in custom tailoring a curriculum to fit the students needs, while still providing them with the same basic tools all musicians need to develop in order to play well (both with themselves and with others). Obviously, some students require more structure and discipline, while others have a stronger work ethic. Some may even need a teacher that is more laid back to balance them out, but more so my job is to facilitate learning and guide. A student studying with me can expect to receive a general assessment of their skill level in musicianship, theory, and on their instrument within the first couple of lessons (or once I feel that I have experienced enough of their abilities). Based on that assessment, I will work with the student to develop a plan of small goals to work toward. Progress will be monitored weekly and larger goals will unfold naturally in accord with the students own dreams and musical ambitions. Within 3 to 6 months of study with me students will learn to play a range of simple songs, basic scales, exercises, finger positions, and have a solid foundation for listening to, and playing to rhythm.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Full acoustic upright, Wurlizter electric piano, and keyboard synths, a computer based digital audio workstation...guitars...percussion...in the front room of my house. Has a full set-up for a band.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide copies of some sheet music, a library of music books, percussion instruments, digital recordings of lessons.
I expect that they provide their own instrument, pencil, notebook, 3-ring binder for sheet music, stereo/mp3 player, CD player, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I excel at popular music genres such as pop, blues, R&B, rock, and jazz. I am also trained classically and enjoy the challenges of standard repertoire from Bach to Chopin.
I began studying music as a student of the Suzuki method. However, today I find that my own practice resembles most closely, the Kodály, Dalcroze, and Orff-Schulwerk methodologies in philosophy and application.

Paul is very talented and, a very good and patient teacher. He is prepared for the class even before you arrive at his place, and communicates his thoughts very clearly. He is ready for a challenge if you give him a random song which you wanted to practice, and he begins to play the song on the guitar without any tabs or notes, instead just by listening to it a couple of times.

He's great to work with, and I'd choose him as my guitar teacher again if I ever live in the surrounding area.

I'm an easy going, very experienced, highly qualified teacher with a Doctoral degree in Music Performance. I help my students with their individual goals, whether learning for fun or for career. I teach Beginning to Intermediate Piano students. Suzuki, Faber and Faber, Alfred, or Royal Conservatory methods.

About Marta
I'm an easy going, very experienced, highly qualified teacher with a Doctoral degree in Music Performance. I recently moved to Long Beach and I'm excited to start my teaching studio here. I've been teaching privately and in group classes for over 20 years, both traditional and Suzuki methods. I have over 25 years of performance experience in classical music. I'm also very active in the non-classical scene I've performed with celebrities like Rihanna, Steve Wonder, Trisha Yearwood and local artists, from modern flamenco to jazz, pop, rock. I'm a recording artist and specialize in improvisation and creative collaborations.

The philosophy is to guide students' musical and educational growth through well rounded and personally tailored instruction that emphasizes practicing strategies in technical facility, musicality, history, theory and
music appreciation. My students enjoy discovering and strengthening their talents through my encouragement-oriented and patient guidance. I accept students of any level, starting from age 5 to adults. My students have won auditions to youth orchestras and colleges and some are now professional musician themselves. Whether you are learning for pleasure or for life goals, my studio is open to all.

Marta is clearly an incredibly talented and engaging musician who is able to translate her experience for folks, like me, who might be new to an instrument or music in general. She is skilled in music theory and technique and really focuses on ensuring her students have the foundational skills necessary to build on as they progress. I'd highly recommend her - she makes the hard work of learning a new instrument (or expanding your existing practice) incredibly fun and rewarding.

Hello! I have been teaching piano since 2006 and playing since I was 5 years old! I have had the privilege of winning a number of competitions and awards during my stint as a professional pianist, making upwards of $300/hour, playing at events of all kinds and with multiple bands/orchestras in the process. I have taught all ages (as young as 4!) and am passionate about seeing my students fall in love with the same instrument that started my musical career. I specialize in the classical style (from Beethoven to Einaudi), a strong foundation in music theory (for any instrument), and chords and chord progressions (great for playing in bands and improvisation).

About Daniel
Hello! My name is Daniel Joseph, though most people call me "Joe". I have a number of passions in life, including academics and music. I have played piano since I was 5 years old and picked up a slew of other instruments along the way (violin, guitar, bass, drums, etc.). I was in a professional boy choir from ages 8-13 and was privileged to sing around the world, in the Vatican, on the TV show 'Dexter', multiple showings for 'Good Morning America', and more! But...piano was always my first love.

On the academic side of things, I was privileged to become a professional math, writing, and reading tutor in 2006 with Kumon Centers before branching out with my own practice. I have consistently helped hundreds of students from pre-school to college improve in those two disciplines. I enjoy building friendships with my students and would love
to help YOU improve your grades. I missed only one question on my SAT and was accepted to Harvard a few months later (though I chose not to attend). Currently, I am a card-carrying member of MENSA (a High-IQ society whose members must have an IQ within the top 2%). If you want a fun but knowledgeable tutor to help you grow, I'm your man!

Musically, I have been trained in the classical and jazz styles, taken part in piano competitions since I was 10 years old, won many awards on the regional and state level, and played with many orchestras, bands, and other groups over the years. I also had a number of years where I played professionally for events and shows. All this to say, I am no stranger to the stage and to what it takes to "make it" in the music world while still remembering why you love the instrument you play.

Whether you are wanting to learn how to play the best of Mozart, jam with your friends in a band, or build a strong foundation of musical theory so that you can switch instruments (or impress your loved ones) with ease, I can help.

I fervently believe that music and our academic studies are a part of who we are, and if you want to learn how to express yourself on the ivories or with numbers, I'm your man!

18 Years of Experience as a Classically Trained Pianist.
6 years of experience teaching piano privately and with a music school, Fort Bend Music Center. Of those 6 years, 4 of them was spent teaching the Suzuki method. The remaining two was spent teaching traditional classic piano through the school.

About Emily
I am a singer-songwriter out of Los Angeles known as Emily Eisa. I have been playing classical piano for the last 18 years, and have a love for music that I love passing onto my students.

I have been teaching piano professionally for the last six years. Of those six, four of them have been dedicated to teaching the Suzuki method. Of the remaining two, I have taught traditional classical piano, which includes teaching my students about Musical Theory. I have taught a range of people from children (age 2-18) to adults (age 35+).

I took a brief break from teaching to move across the country (from Houston to LA), and now that I'm settled in, I'm eager to take on students again. From basic piano lessons to songwriting, I can't wait to meet you!
