Private Songwriting Teacher

Greetings! Alec is the Piano Teacher for Kids in Orange County. Along with tutoring piano, he is also a music composer for film, video-games, and multi-media. With over 15 years of piano-playing experience, and 5 years of teaching, Alec is happy and excited to achieve whatever your child's goals are in playing the piano.

Within the first few lessons, you or your child will be able to:
(1) Understand the Foundations of the Piano
(2) Effectively Read Notes
(3) Recognize Patterns in Music
(4) Use Both Hands Fluidly Within a Song

Alec's foremost philosophy in teaching piano is following the student's goals and dreams, not his own. While curriculum work is certainly vital, it is far more important that his students receive help they need in accomplishing their biggest aspirations in music. Whether your child wants to be a music composer, rock-star, or just playing for their loved ones, Alec can bring them closer to that goal.

Alec's promise to you is to ...

Shubha was an excellent instructor. She is clearly well trained, and breaks everything down for any and all levels. She also makes every lesson fun with her sense of humor! Would definitely recommend to anyone and everyone.
Tessa
Shubha is one of the best vocal coaches I’ve ever had. She’s kind and patient and she knows how to get results. Before taking lessons with her, I was auditioning for shows using songs that weren’t the right fit for my voice. She helped me master my audition and I got the role! I’m going to continue lessons with her and I highly recommend her!

Racheal did a wonderful job helping my daughter with her stage presence.
Sara V.
My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!

Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.

"Gary is extremely knowledgable and a great communicator of complex musical ideas and concepts. He has a way of breaking things down into "easy to understand" bite size pieces. This allows anyone to comprehend and master the rules of music in a third of the time other teachers have taken to teach the same information. He is professional, personable and an all around great teacher .
He has taught my daughter as well. We study songwriting together.
I highly recommend Gary!"

So incredibly sweet, talented, and such an amazing teacher! From the moment I met fawn we immediately connected. She genuinely cares and makes you feel so comfortable, so opening up to her when it came to writing songs was incredibly easy and natural. Very giving with her time and she will help you tackle any problems you're having in order to achieve your goals."

What is refreshing about working with him is he is open to so many forms of music. As he states it, " music is music". it provides a fresh approach. I am very pleased with this expanded viewpoint."

"Technology today is incredible. I'm in Norway, Fawn is in Los Angeles. Where else could I find a quality teacher with a couple of hit songs help me at my craft? If it weren't for the internet I would have never found such a talented songwriter to help me tighten my songs. I love, love, LOVE the time I spend with Fawn hashing out my songs to record with my band in the studio. She is so gifted, easy going, precise and fun. She really respects keeping the integrity and emotions of my songs and is good at keeping people open to changes that are necessary to make a mediocre song great."

"Fawn is an investment in my future, money spent well

Fawn takes you on an unexpected fun, whirlwind of learning when you take lessons with her. Can’t read the notes? No problem, she’s got you. Vocal problems? Oh yeah, she fixes that too. Trouble in the studio? Voice off pitch? Need mic technique? Weak on piano? Sight singing? Can’t play the blues? Can’t play classical? Need to learn how to write a song? Can’t find a hook for your song? Don’t worry, Fawn to the rescue! Seriously, is there nothing this woman can’t do? I soak up her wisdom like a sponge. I’m currently working in the studio with her on my debut album and we are half-way finished. It is sounding ah-may-zing! I am learning so much from this studio wiz. Having her in my life the past 3 years has been the right choice and an investment in my future. Here’s to another successful year with Fawn on my team."

10 Proven Steps For Writing Lyrics That Stick

The late Amy Winehouse tribute album Lioness: Hidden Treasures has been making waves on the UK music charts, securing the #1 spot just days after its release.  Although the posthumous album has had its share of drama and questionable reviews, the collection - with its mix of covers and raw, unfinished tunes polished up by the producers - seems fitting in depicting Amy as the troubled, tattered star that she was. As she sings at the start of "Best Friends, Right?": "I can't wait to get away f …
