Barbara L.

Rosamond, CA

About Barbara

Originally from Wisconsin, I was a music student at UW LaCrosse before coming to LA to attend Musician's Institute in Hollywood,(GIT) where I graduated with honors and was awarded a USA Custom Ibanez guitar. I remained in LA working in numerous bands spanning a wide variety of musical styles including blues, rock, country, surf, and even Persian music! With "The California Girls", an all female surf band, I opened for "The Beach Boys" , "The Safaris", "Jan and Dean", "Steppin Wolf"; toured the US playing theaters, fairs, casinos; and played overseas for the troops in Bosnia, Kosovo, Japan,
Korea, Singapore, Iraq, Afghanistan, Norway, Germany, the Pacific Islands, and Diego Garcia. Most recently I was a member of the Greg London band, an impressionist with whom I performed in Leicester Square in the West End of London, at Harrah's Reno and the Las Vegas Hilton for extended runs. I fill in with "ThundHerStruck", an all female AC/DC tribute band and recently did a tour to Afghanistan with them. I also have a band called "Sierra Highway" that performs in the Antelope Valley.
I have studied vocal technique extensively with Robert Edwards, renown vocal coach to the stars (Christina Aguilera, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow ) and learned to teach his method which is similar to the famous "Seth Riggs" method. I have played piano since early childhood.
I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals and tailoring your lessons specifically to your needs!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to combine specific basics about music and technique with material you would really enjoy learning and performing. Each song or piece has several lessons that can be learned from it. If you enjoy the material, you are more likely to practice every day and progress! You will have opportunities to perform at a recital solo or as a part of a group.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Private commercial studio w/ piano, amps, mic, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
Guitar is my main thing, personally I like blues/rock.

I am not the person taking the lessons. It is for my granddaughters, who are 5, 8, and 12. They practice daily and look forward to getting to the classes each week. Teaching takes a lot of patience.

” Anyone can teach..but very few can inspire. Anyone can show your hands which notes to play, but very few can give your heart wings. Faye W. is a gifted music teacher who does more than give lessons.. she inspires her students to play from the heart and to connect the notes on a page with the dreams and desires the music brings to life. Aunty Faye, as we affectionately call her, will always be the music teacher who taught my children the love of music, the delight of laughter and the joy that playing the piano from your heart. It is with great appreciation that I write this recomendation to all future students that may be looking for more than just a piano teacher.. Faye is someone who will gently lead her students on the delightful journey of learning both the disciplines and the inspiration to play music from the heart.. A rare gift indeed .. We will miss you … our Dear Aunty Faye.”

“Ms W. is a wonderful piano instructor. I love that she takes the time to come to our home and provide individual one-on-one training with my two boys and daughter. Their ages range from 4-9 and Faye’s ability to interact with each of them is awesome. We have had other instructors, but no one has come close to Faye’s ability to get our children to want to learn the piano. If you have children and they want to learn the piano give Faye the opportunity to teach them, you will not be sorry.”

“Faye W. has been a “diamond among the rough” find! She is a wonderful, flexible, energetic, patient and fun piano teacher!!! I played the piano when I was younger but did NOT want to teach my own child. I made the right decision as Faye makes learning music FUN and engaging. She encourages her students to play music that they actually like and enjoy, as opposed to boring them to death with only strict technique and theory practices. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and I’ve even begun playing again after taking years off. Faye has been a delight and an inspiration to our entire family. We are all enjoying the piano again for the first time in years! I searched high and low and couldn’t find another instructor that was as affordable, flexible, easy going, and patient as Faye. Her gift of perfect pitch and ability to play by ear amaze me personally as I can only read music. Faye is well trained and a talented musician. You will not be disappointed!”
