*** Lesson Details ***
I'm strict and laid back at the same time. My main goal in teaching is helping students not lose their interest in piano and encourage them to reach whatever level they are pursuing for. Music is supposed to be joyful and fun, not boring. I want my students to have a lot of fun during lesson time, and most of my students actually do. I usually run a recital once a year, so all of my students get to perform in front of crowd. It's really important opportunity for students to perform, and they learn a lot from it.

About Frank
As a composer, I have composed music for Fox News, Fox Sports, MTV, Warner Brothers, Nickelodeon, the Weather Channel and MUZAK. His credits also include extensive DVD, Web, and Multimedia based productions.

I've also composed and produced several acclaimed children's albums, four of them receiving the prestigious Parent's Choice award.

More importantly I have been teaching private lessons for a number of years. My experience in the music industry gives me the tools to teach children what they WANT to learn, in addition to being able to give them a firm foundation in all of the elements that it takes to become a complete musician.

*** Lesson Details ***
I work out of several series of books geared towards different approaches to technique, theory, ear training and artistry, tailoring my teaching approach to the individual stude
nt, based on their age, personality, natural ability and commitment to practicing. I want the students to be inspired to practice, but never through intimidation.

It's important to me that a student has no holes in their playing. I tend to zero in on any weak points and find engaging ways to help students to improve in those areas.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Finished garage recording studio w/ baby grand and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
For piano lessons i expect the student to have a working keyboard or piano. I will supply the course curriculum.

*** Specialties ***
I work well with Jazz, popular music and electronic music and recording technology.

MFA from CalArts, teaching all levels and abilities, you will be able to learn to read music, piano techniques and practice strategies, chords/scales, work on repertoire of any style, improvisation, etc. Beginners are welcome!

I frequently use the Alfred, Faber, and Dozen-a-Day books for beginners. Advanced students will have highly individualized teaching materials. Please be in touch with any questions!

About John
I've been playing music for over twenty years as a brass player, pianist, guitarist, composer, and electronic musician. I've studied and performed across the country—starting in Seattle, then New York and the northeast, and finally here in Los Angeles.

As a performer, I have trained and play extensively on the French horn, piano, and guitar. I perform in a variety of styles—from classical to jazz, pop/rock styles, and modern and experimental music.

As a composer and sound designer, I work in a variety of settings, from composing for orchestra, string quartet, percussion, and groups of all shapes and sizes, to designing sound for theater and film.

I earned my Bachelor's degree at Bennington College in Vermont and my Master's degree at CalArts. I play all around LA as a freelance orchestral musician, in my brass quartet, a studio h
ornist (recorded on will.i.am's last album, The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, and with Horse's Mouth, to name a few), and in various other groups. I have taught at Bennington College, Summer Sonatina Piano School, Sage City Symphony's Young Composers Project, CalArts, Barnsdall Park's Junior Art Center, and Santa Monica Music Center. I have been teaching privately since high school and love working with students to meet their individual goals in music.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument for demonstration and group playing when applicable. I provide sheet music and method books for use in lessons or temporary loan. I expect students to have their own instrument and music stand for use during lessons. If using electric guitar, they should have their own amplifier. In theory or songwriting lessons, they should have their own staff paper. I ask students to purchase their own method books and music when needed.

I have taken lessons with Ronald since I was 6, I am now 23. In my 17 years of taking lessons I have learned to play piano, sing and am proficient in music theory. In the more recent years I have even had the opportunity to teach music through Ronald. Throughout the years, I have experienced and witnessed the patience and kindness Ronald consistently shows his students. He encourages his students to become better and shares in their enthusiasm due to their accomplishments. Ronald genuinely cares about his students and is dedicated to making sure his students improve. I fully recommend Ronald for students who have parents who want to be involved in the learning process and especially for young children who are just starting out. Ronald works well with families, includes parents every step of the way and is very patient with young students helping them learn in an open and encouraging environment.

Mr.Chaz is really dedicated to his profession. He started to teach my seven year old son over one year ago and he has motivated him to sing his best and he started piano with him last year which has been a phenomenal experience for my son. Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!

I teach you how to play piano through popular music you hear on the radio and the great classics. Whether you are 5 years of age or 85 years of age, I can make learning piano an enjoyable worthwhile experience for you! We can incorporate music theory, standard & jazz voicings (how to play a chord to make it sound good) and fun ways to train your ear. My goal is to foster a joy for learning proper technique so I can hand you off to an intermediate teacher.

About Valerie
Hello! My name is Valerie and I would love to talk with you about creating a lesson plan just right for you!

My teachers were incredible, some Grammy winners and nominees, and I would love to pass on their wisdom as well as impart my own knowledge and experience of 14+ years of singing professionally, songwriting, touring, recording etc. My songs have been featured in independent film and professional websites. I performed all over the U.S. west coast and NYC and have performed in Europe as well (super love that, can't wait to go back.) My next goal is to perform in Japan. I want to make each lesson interesting & fun but challenging! I expect each student to come prepared to lessons. I expect each student to try their best and to be res
pectful. Do you have what it takes to be the next student of Valerie? :) Feel free to message me with any questions and I will respond asap!

Learning to play the piano requires practice. Often you hear, "Practice makes Perfect." Wrong! Practice makes permanent. In your lesson, I will teach you how to practice the right way to get the best result in the least amount of time. I want your technique to advance rapidly, so you can play the music you've always wanted to play!

About Sean
Master of Fine Arts Piano Performance, Tulane University

I love life, and piano is a huge part of my life. I teach students of all ages and levels, and I'm looking forward to finding talented, passionate, and hard-working students here. I am very proud of receiving my Master of Fine Arts in Piano Performance under world renowned concert and recording artist, Faina Lushtak (Moscow Conservatory).

In their lessons, students are taught how to approach every piece of music confidently, economically, and artistically. I help my students reach the highest level of taste and musicianship, and my teaching methods propel students to learn more difficult repertoire in less time. My Master’s Thesis focused on the dynamic, interdependent relationship between movement and sound. Deconstructing piano technique into simple choreographic units
helps students learn faster and play more expressively. I also teach the fundamentals of music theory through electronic music composition, if the student is interested.

Ultimately I want this to be fun, but I require dedication, consistent practice, and a positive attitude. Parents, don't worry! Every student has a unique way of balancing hard work and having fun. Students of all ages will be encouraged to participate in competitions and the year end recital.

Let me tell you more about me! I am crazy about traveling! Some of my favorite places around the world are Siem Reape in Cambodia, Gotland in Sweden, and Kalymnos in Greece. One of my favorite things about traveling is seeing all the inspiring artwork made by the amazing, diverse people living on this planet.

Schedule your first lesson today! I can't wait to meet you!
