Learn while only playing songs you love! I will always keep an eye on technique - and I'm happy to help you learn to read, learn how to follow chord charts, play by ear, or all three - but I believe students should never look at it as homework. Piano has been a best friend since I started playing 40+ years ago and I love sharing it. So we only learn through your favorite songs. I've been teaching for 25 years, have performed with 8 Grammy winning acts, and have composed for much film, TV, and internet - from Spike Lee to MTV to major film studios. I was classically trained, accepted into conservatory while still in high school, and started playing in bands when I was 12 :) I also teach guitar, singing, and songwriting. I have taught junior high, high school, and college English and writing. I have taught special needs kids. I also work as a book author and screenwriter - but I love teaching and always enjoy having students. Pop, rock, reggae, R&B, classical - you name it, I can help! ...

About Scott

Learn to play by ONLY playing songs you love! I started playing classical piano at age 6. Piano lessons were a bit dry so, once I could, I started playing my favorite songs on my own, out of songbooks and by ear. 45 years later, piano has probably saved me a ton on therapy :) And, it's helped me m

I have been teaching piano for over twenty years. I specialize in classical and pop. I love teaching babies and young children but I teach all ages. Piano is the hardest instrument. I try to make every lesson fun while still providing structure and a little bit of strictness. I use the Mark Nevin, Schaum, and Little Mozart series. I have tons of music to share for students that need to branch out and don't know what to play. Piano is my passion. I love sharing my love for this instrument with others.

Hey everyone out there interested in Music Theory! I'm a jazz pianist and composer, who's crazy about theory and the understanding of music. In my classes we'll study harmony, intervals, chord inversions, chord extensions, reharmonization, and from time to time historical references and examples. I find the best way to grasp these concepts is by first analyzing and studying them, and second putting them into practice on chordal instruments (piano/guitar). Theory may seem intimidating for some and limited for others who already have a strong grasp on the basics, but I can guarantee that together we'll open new doors into understanding theory no matter your level.

I’ve been taking lessons with Alan for a while now. He is very knowledgeable about music and ties in playing music to the theory behind it to make it easier to understand. He is very patient and caters it to your level and skill. Alan has also been extremely accommodating with my crazy, ever changing schedule. Great teacher!

I have played oboe for 15 years. I studied at California State University, Northridge, where I earned a Bachelor of Music degree in oboe performance. I have been tutoring for over ten years, teaching students of all ages and levels. It is important to me that I get to know my students on a personal level, so I can cater lessons to their individual goals/learning styles. Whether you want to work on reeds, prepare for an audition, or learn that song from Frozen, I look forward to working with you!

"Our daughter, Grace, took lessons from Alex and had a wonderful experience. Alex did great finding out what her goal for playing was, right off the bat. For Grace, she wanted to be able to accompany her own singing. She picked some songs, they worked out the chords together, and pinpointed some riffs for her to learn. (The same thing everyone has to do when they learn a new song.) It was just great that Alex showed Grace that front-end work to learn a song pays off. On top of all of this, Alex is a super nice guy! Fun to work with and always supportive of his students!"

"Ashley is an excellent teacher! She teaches in a very supportive manner. She is able to correct my daughter in a positive way that gets the desired results, and builds my daughter's self-confidence at the same time. She is charming, fun spirited, and makes the lessons fun. I could go on and on about her beautiful voice, but I will spare you of the long list of amazingness! If my daughter ever decides to no longer do voice lessons, I think I would pay her to come in once a week just to hear her sing! We love everything about her!"
