In addition to learning your favorite songs, we will focus on:

- Learning to read music
- Sight reading
- Treble and bass clef
- Scales
- Proper fingering
- Basic music theory
-Playing melodies and chords
-Right and left hands independence
- Singing and playing, if desired

Required materials:
Piano Lessons:
-Piano or keyboard at home
-Method/Lesson books -- I teach from the Faber series. We will decide which books to use in our first lesson. I ask that the student purchases the books (I will provide an Amazon link if needed) which will range in cost from $10 - $20 per level.
-Supplementary sheet music may be required-- I will provide from my library whenever possible.

About Charlotte
Hello! My name is Charlotte, and I am a San Diego vocalist, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. I hold a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Studies from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where I honed my vocal jazz chops before branching out into the East Coast folk, blues and indie rock scene. I moved to Southern California in 2011, when I took a brief hiatus from performing to focus on commercial songwriting and composition and teaching voice, piano and guitar privately. I am currently once again performing in multiple groups in the San Diego area.

My areas of expertise are contemporary styles and genres. I put a strong emphasis on developing healthy technique alongside strong musicianship skills in a fun environment! With over 10 years experience working with kids and teenagers, I am passionate about teaching all ages (adults, t
oo!).

With all instruments, the student will learn (please click on specific Subjects for more details on the way each instrument is taught):

-Musicianship/ear training
-Reading music & sight singing
-Proper technique
-Building repertoire
-Performance techniques
-Music Theory

*** Specialties ***

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.

*** Specialties ***
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.

I actually have been playing and performing on the Piano longer than the Guitar- since I was 10 years old. I have a lot of knowledge that will help you to understand the instrument better and sharpen your Piano skills. I will assist in your sight reading, song creativity, building up a solid repertoire, technique, comprehending music theory, etc. We will strengthen any area any area you are looking to develop.

About David
A fun, friendly, and professional Music Instructor at your service for Voice, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums, & Ukulele! I have a BA degree from Florida Atlantic University in Music Performance for Classical/Flamenco/Jazz/Blues guitar and I've also performed on the Piano/Keyboards for a couple different bands too. Love to play & teach pretty much all styles of music! It is always a pure joy & truly rewarding to see my music students grow and flourish in their musical abilities. I have been enjoying doing this now for 20+ years- all ages & levels. I am also in a multi-dimensional rock project and a recording artist with my band Vision.

I believe it's important to learn the rudiments of music to build a good foundation (scales, chord vocabulary, theory, song-composition, performing techniques), but I also base the lessons on whatever th
e interests and strengths are for the student. For example, if you enjoy jazz more than classical we'll focus more on what you are particularly passionate about. I have also been a part of School of Rock Programs in which we provided performances for the students a la Jack Black. Please contact Takelessons to let the musical journey begin...

Ms. Clarissa is such an AMAZING piano teacher. I have learned a lot from her in just a few months. She is patient, funny, kind, but most importantly, the best teacher in the world. It has been a pleasure being one of her students. I definitely recommend her to anybody. Her ways of teaching are amazing.
The only reason that I can't continue to have my lessons with her is that she has to move from RP. I will miss you dearly Ms. Clarissa.

My daughter took lessons from Ms. Clarissa for just over a year and a half, beginning in 2nd grade. We love Ms. Clarissa! My daughter learned so much in each lesson, and was so comfortable with her teacher. Clarissa is clearly a very accomplished pianist, but her kind demeanor is really wonderful with children and new players. My daughter loves to play the piano and is always eager to go to her lessons. I have watched Clarissa's more experienced students play at recitals and am always very impressed by how advanced they are. I would highly recommend Clarissa to anyone!

I would assess the student's capability and begin with the level appropriate for the student. For new students with no experience, I would start out with simple hand positioning and playing the piano firsthand. We'll learn as we go with fine details of reading notation and techniques. I will introduce one or two subject to cover for each lesson. For students that have more experience and are at the beginner level, I will introduce technical practices and assign a piece of music. As for intermediate and advance, we will cover technical practice, assigned music, and music theory.

About Fang
Hello, my name is Fang. I studied piano as my major for Undergraduate studies and have since finished my studies as of June, 2018. I am looking forward to teaching beginners or intermediate in classical training. I want to teach an all-around encompassing a strong foundation for the piano. This includes playing the piano, techniques, hand coordination, ear training, improvising, beginner theory, notation reading, and anything else that interests my students. All in all, it's about having fun and learning to have fun with the Piano.

I have been playing the piano since I was 5. I could write a song everyday. I find that it's a beautiful God given gift and I love to find the composer in my students. I was therefore inspired to name my business " Play From The Heart". So if there is a natural writer out there I want to discover them and teach them to read and write their own music while enjoying other artist as well. 🎼🎹

About Roxanne
I love to work with all ages. Like many artist, I started off shy to sing and share my music but the more I practiced and performed, the more comfortable I became! I want to build that same confidence in my students. As a teacher, I am a vendor for Julian Charter Schools and have enjoyed helping a variety of talented singers and have Co-written piano songs with students. I have also helped in developing my students own original songs, finding their own creativity and personal growth in music while learning to read and play other music as well.

ROXANNE IS THE BEST!
You can always tell how much she loves the piano while she plays it. What I love about Roxanne is that she brings you out of your comfort zone. It can be a little intimidating learning something new, especially for younger ones, but Roxanne really gives them the confidence they need to just do it! Plus, she’s lots of fun which makes learning something new easier and enjoyable.

Roxanne is an excellent music teacher, and plays from the heart. It is the love for what she does, that sets her apart from other teachers. Most music instructors are following a commercially driven style, that breeds regiment over fun. However, if playing music has the natural fun taken out of it, then the music produced by the student becomes a carbon copy, losing originality. These types of teachers are showing you how to imitate other artists, Roxanne shows you how to be an artist worthy of imitation.

I would like to highly recommend Ivan Shallal as a music teacher for children. Ivan is a gifted piano teacher. He is very well-respected in Rochester Hills and Troy, Michigan. This community is extremely fortunate to have a music teacher of his caliber to teach in this area.

Ivan is passionate about music. His love for the art is evident in his enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. He is exceedingly patient with all students, encourages them, and coaxes the very best effort from each one. Although he is one of the best music teachers in the zone, his prices are extremely reasonable. In my opinion, he is worth every penny he charges, and I certainly believe I have received excellent service for my money.

It is my great pleasure to recommend Ivan Shallal as a music teacher. I am tremendously grateful to him for everything he has taught my daughter.

Ivan was the piano teacher for my 3 boys ages 14, 12 and 7 years old for about 2 years. Before Ivan, my kids lost interest in learning and practicing piano. Ivan was able to engage their interest and make them love practicing. He encouraged them to pick music from famous songs or movies which helped to attract their attention. My kids looked at him as a role model. It was a pleasure having him as their piano teacher. He is a great one. It was a big loss for us when he moved out of the state. He is highly recommended.
