Welcome to my Piano studio.
I am enthusiastic, caring, classically trained piano teacher with over 30 years of experience who believes that all students can thrive in a learning environment that is stimulating, comforting and appropriate to their abilities. I am looking forward to build a successful, long lasting teacher student relationship with you.

About Emma
I am a piano teacher, classically trained. I started my music education at the age of 7, at the Odessa College of Music in Ukraine. At age 16 I was accepted to the highly prestigious Odessa University of Music, where later I received my BA degree in Piano Pedagogy and Performance, Summa Cum Laude. I then decided to further my education and take a 2 year Piano Performance course at the Odessa Conservatory. For over 30 years thereafter, I am teaching students of all ages. I look to develop problem solving, multitasking and other intangible life skills for my younger students through the power of music. For my adult students, I look to reduce stress and keep their brains working like new. Regardless of age, I work very hard to improve all of my student's memory, brain function, coordination and most importantly teach them how to simply have
fun!
I believe that all students can thrive in a learning environment that is stimulating, comforting and appropriate to their abilities.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are designed based on famous methods of teaching to meet the individual needs and desires of each student.
I am always very patient and will take it as slow as each of my students needs to make sure that he or she understands everything of what is being presented.
I am growing up with the students, building a proper relationship with them and helping them develop life skills through music. I hope for all my students that they will indeed develop skills and attributes through the music experience they have with me.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Upright Piano, Baby Grand Kawaii for Recitals

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student must provide piano in their home for piano lessons. Must have parking available

*** Specialties ***
I am using Alfred's Music for Little Mozarts, Alfred Piano, Bastien Piano, Piano Adventures by Nancy and Randall Faber, Thompson Modern course for beginners. I provide my student with a variety of music styles: classical, jazz, musicals/movie. Also, I introduce them to piano duets. These duets are very useful as supplementary material in a piano program, musically rewarding, and very motivational. I offer preparation to the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) examinations.

I've been teaching piano for more than twenty years and many of my students have gone on to numerous competitions and won many awards. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs and recognize a few of the notes and as time goes on you'll be able to read and communicate with harder pieces. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Regina
At the age of fifteen, Ms. Regina graduated with honors from the Z. Paliashvili Special Music Gymnasium for Gifted Children in Tbilisi, Georgia. As a student of a famous Georgian pianist, Tengiz Amirejibi, she presented her country in numerous competitions. (Tengiz Amirejibi was a student of Heinrich Neuhaus, a famous Russian teacher and pianist.)

As a child, Ms. Regina gave many solo recitals and concerts with the Georgian Symphonic Orchestra. Ms. Regina earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts with emphasis on Advanced Piano Performance from the Yerevan State Conservatory. After graduating, she worked with talented children in her alma mater for many years. Later in her professional career, Ms. Regina taught at the Tbilisi State Conservatory as well as the Moscow Music Gymnasium.

With more than eighteen years of professional teachin
g experience, Ms. Regina is able to offer her students a diverse range of educational resources. She specializes in teaching piano, performance, and music theory to students of all ages and levels.

Ms. Regina's teaching techniques are based on a combination of the famous Russian Music School (based on music giants such as Konstantin Igumnov, Daniel Barenboim, and Heinrich Neuhaus) and the American Music Education System. This combination allows each student to work at a pace comfortable for him/her, and helps all students make significant progress in the areas of sight reading, ear training, and performance skills.

***Teaching Schedule***
Ms. Regina teaches in her Glendale studio and the surrounding areas every day of the week except for Saturdays. She teaches in her Orange County studio located in Fountain Valley on Saturdays.

***Travel Area and Special Rates***

I have been teaching classical piano and music theory for last 7 years. As a student, I deeply understand the struggles, amount of patience, and constant hard work that comes with learning music. Learning piano will allow you to strengthen not only their ability to play, but also their patience. You can remain music lovers even without music lessons! As a teacher, most rewarding aspect of teaching is witnessing your reactions when you reach where they doubted.

Stanton, CA

View Full Profile

With 10 years of teaching experience, I specialize in working with beginning students of all ages. In lessons I strive to build a strong foundation of reading music, rhythm and music theory. Students are placed in the appropriate level of Piano Adventures during their first lesson. They are required to have the books by their next lesson. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Grace
Grace has extensive experience teaching private and group lessons, including lessons in Piano, English Horn and reed making. Her students have gone on to win scholarships and place in honor orchestras. Currently, her students hold the top spots in nTyme's (North Torrance Youth Musicians Ensemble) Chamber Orchestra.

Locally, Grace has performed with the Dana Point Symphony, Symphony Irvine, as well as other groups around Southern California. Previously, she was a long time member of the Cheshire Symphony.

Whether you choose to take lessons online, in my home studio, or in your home, I strive to make each lesson engaging, informative, and fun! Students are expected to practice in-between lessons and come to lessons prepared with their instrument and music. I also encourage students to bring any music that they're interested in learni
ng to their lessons.

**In-home Lessons**
Currently, I'm traveling to the Southbay area on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. If you reside within that area and the time you'd like isn't in my availability, please let me know, as I may be able to make it work (depending on location). If you have any scheduling questions, please contact me before booking lessons.

**Group Lessons**
I don't offer traditional group lessons, as I've found they slow down the progress of both students and therefore aren't cost effective. Arrangements can be made for back to back lessons instead. Please contact me before booking lessons.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, and I can't wait to meet you!

Rancho Santa Margarita, CA

Having been part of a band, Klaviam, for over 12 years, I have the technical skills and knowledge of not only the piano, but also a wide array of other instruments as well, such as the guitar, drums, and bass. My music is highly diverse as well, so I can teach my students everything from classical to heavy metal.

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

About Alec
-=Overview=-
Greetings! I am Alec Weesner! I currently tutor piano students in the Southern Orange County area, along with composing my own music for film, video-games, and multi-media. With over 15 years of piano-playing experience, and 3 years of teaching, I am able to instruct both kids and adult learners.

Music has always been my passion throughout my life. I don't think there has been a day where I haven't engaged in music in some way. Teaching others how to experience this level of passion brings me the upmost joy in my life. There is nothing I would do else than sharing my knowledge of music.

-=What is your typical process for working with a new student?=-
I will first go over with the student the days and times for our lessons. After a sufficient schedule has been laid out, I will listen to the student's needs and goals he
wants to accomplish. I will personally adjust the curriculum and session time to fit the student's requirements.

-=What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?=-
I have been a music composer for the past 3 years, part of the band Klaviam for over 12 years, and have played the piano for even longer. I have been instructed by wonderful and experienced tutors in both piano and compositional skills. I am also familiar with digital audio workstations (DAWs), and can instruct students should they want to pursue that area.

-=What types of students have you worked with?=-
Mostly 5-18 year-olds, but I have also instructed younger children, as well as adult beginners.

During lessons I will provide constant feedback and adjust lessons depending on your needs and level of understanding. Students have different learning styles so I will teach lessons that incorporate visual, verbal, and written teaching methods. Students can expect a professional, enthusiastic, and patient teacher that is serious about students learning the subjects material and also makes learning fun.

About Belinda
I am a professional working artist and I am also an elementary piano teacher for an after school program here in Riverside. I obtained a degree in Art Practice from UC Berkeley where I specialized in multimedia installations that included large scale paintings and sculptures. Due to the versatility in my own work from large to very small scale paintings I have acquired techniques and skills for every scale in between.
I am a strong believer in self expression and visual literacy which gets stronger with the formulation of concepts one builds through inspiration for each painting. I enjoy teaching and learning what my students' interests are and what motivates them. I can help you learn specific skills for abstract paintings to portraits.
Through research I have also learned that individuals benefit greatly from cre
ative freedom thus performing better in other academic subjects, learning healthy ways of expression, and through the therapeutic effects of painting.
If you are looking to work with someone who loves what they do, who is patient, motivational, and can teach you basic to advanced skills give me a call and let's get painting!

I am a performing pianist with years of experience. I teach students of all ages. My teaching includes most of the classical genre. I am able to travel locally. Lessons are adapted to the needs and abilities of each student. I intend to help build students develop good technique, sight reading, performing abilities, and a good ear so they can appreciate the beauty and benefits that study has to offer.

About Dean
Currently, I'm a Political Science and Music Major at the University of California, Riverside. I'm heavily involved in the music department and performance fills a major part of my schedule. I perform regularly in private and departmental settings. I've been a pianist since the age of 5. I had great instruction and after a while it paid off. By the time I was entering high school I started to develop a love and appreciation for the instrument. I found it fascinating; It was like having a whole orchestra at your fingertips. I all realized that all the virtuoso pieces were soon within my reach. I discovered that I could be a creator and an artist and make the music, instrument, and performer become one. It isn't all glory- It takes lots of frustration and tedious repetition, but it can be a meaningful part of a balanced life.

I have been playing the piano for 29 years, and teaching off and on for over 10 years. I understand every individual learns differently, therefore I like to use a more individualized teaching approach. We will focus on many topics, topics including note reading, forming chords, and ear training. I i'm currently in school pursuing a Masters degree in clinical psychology. I love (and have a lot of experience) working with children and hope to mesh my two passions and provide music therapy to children of all needs.

About LaToya
My name is LaToya. I have been playing the piano for 29 years and teaching, off-and-on, for over 15 years. Currently I am the musical director for my church and I also play for weddings, funerals, quinceñeras, parties etc. I have a passion for music and children/adolescents.

Some of my fondest memories as a child are from my years in piano class. I looked forward to my piano lessons every week. My goal is to keep lessons fun to develop that passion and excitement for music in my students.

I am here to cater to each of my students' learning styles and needs. I have an abundance of patience and am ready to go at the student's pace and teach the way he or she learns best.

I am also a grad student pursuing my master's degree in clinical psychology, and in the future, I plan to mesh my two passions and provide music therapy to chi
ldren of all needs in my clinical therapy practice.

Some of my past students have gotten accepted into the school of performing arts, earned piano rolls in their high school choirs, and play for their churches.
