Barbara D. Yorba Linda, CA

About Barbara

Experience: 30 years teaching private piano lessons, former head of Cerritos College Children's Piano Program. Trained with Christine Bardin, composer of Alfred's "Music for Little Mozarts". Philosophy I have had the advantage of having the best teachers and try to also give that opportunity to my students. When a new student first comes to me, I ask what is their goal and formulate a strategy to rapidly lead them to achieve that goal. Whether it is precise classical training or a general music experience that includes reading music and playing popular pieces, I give everyone a thorough education in theory, sight reading, and exercises to promote fast and even piano playing. I teach students as young as 4 years old with the "Music for Little Mozarts" approach which I taught at ...

Engaging Teacher

I have two children who are students. One did not want to play any instrument but is going to a performing arts school. Barbara took that into account and focused the teaching on things my child would use in school like accompanying singers, reading music, playing show tunes.My other child has a completely different focus. Barbara keeps her engaged and learning even though the interests are entirely different. Barbara knows much more than just piano. She knows about the music business and what it takes to succeed as a musician. She is a great resource and teacher.

Great teacher for an adult beginner

I have always been interested in learning the piano and finally did it. Barbara is a wonderful instructor. I have been taking lessons for approximately three months and can read music and play! Barbara is very encouraging and I look forward to each lesson.

I am now preparing to play holiday tunes at the family gathering!

Engaging, Flexible

Child had lessons at another program but teachers did not motivate students. Barbara engages the student. She focuses her teaching on both what the parent wants and what the child is interested in so the kids are more interesting in practicing and moving forward. Barbara is good with both younger students and teenagers. She is patient and knowledgeable.
Yves L. Chino Hills, CA

About Yves

I grew up in Quebec City Canada, where I only spoke French during those growing years. From a very young age, I was always attracted to music and particularly playing drums. My mom has told me that before I could even walk, I was already banging away on whatever I could put my hands on. I would sit down with pots, pans, and spoons and bang away. My parents bought my first “real” drum kit when I was about five years old. It was a Mickey Mouse drum set that they ordered from the Sears catalog. I was ecstatic. Unfortunately, because of the poor quality of the drum, this particular kit only lasted a couple months, but it was on that very drum kit that I gave my first live performance. The concert took place in the basement of my house. This memorable concert included one song, a French ...

Yves truly qualified in experience and teaching ability

Selected Yves as a drum teacher for my son based on his profile. Yves is an experienced, patient and fun instructor that has been effective making drumming fun and interesting to my five year old. Yves is good at making sure parents understand how to help their child in the learning process. Yves is a bit further out from me but I am not disappointed. Thank you Yves.

Yves is THE BEST instructor!

My son is 5-years-old and quite an active little guy! When he said he was interested in learning to play guitar, I wasn't sure we would be able to find a teacher for his age. We did; Yves is the best! Yves is always patient with him and understanding of his age/ ability. He instructs him with kindness and holds his attention. Yves also has a wonderful home studio in a nice home/area. He is flexible with scheduling as well. He goes above and beyond with extra help and recommendations for helpful materials. My son looks forward to seeing him every week and sharing with him 'how much I practiced'. We would highly recommend Yves to anyone.

Yves was our 11-year-old grandson's first drum teacher and he was great. Yves knew how to let him play around a little bit and still keep him on track. Our grandson always looked forward to his next lesson and was excited to go. The driving distance got to be too much so we had to find a teacher who was closer to us.

Kris is awesome!

Kris is awesome! You will never meet anyone who loves musicor teaching as much as Kris. I startedwith him almost two years ago, and as an adult, beginning voice student I ampretty inhibited. Kris has an enthusiastic manner about him though, that reallyhelps you relax and feel more confident as he instructs you. When I started outthere was a real tightness in my voice that was probably more psychological thanphysical, but he showed me some important techniques for voice relaxation andamplification. For someone as shy about singing as I am, some of histechniques may seem a little outlandish at first, but they really do work! My karaoke buddies tell me that I sound even better than before! Iwholeheartedly recommend Kris to anyone who is looking for an enthusiastic andknowledgeable teacher.

Alex has been a joy for my daughter to work with. He has been working with her a little over a year. She has grown in her music but most of all in the life lessons he has taught her along the way. Alex on a weekly basis connect his music lessons to life lessons for Whitney. It's amazing to listen to her play each week as she develops in her music and a joy to watch her maturity in managing life's challenges. He has been a great source of support for her. We love you Alex!!! Your the best.

I will definitely recommend Alex...

Alex is awesome, my only concern was that he came not clearing his schedule accurately with his office and he was stressed out fixing his teaching schedule during my kid's time slot. I do understand that its our first time and looks like office made the mistakes. But, it could have handled in a better way like way before or after.
Ken P. Anaheim, CA

About Ken

I've been playing music my whole life, but it was as a high school student when I was asked to teach the school's guitar class that I became a teacher. Since that time I've gone on to earn several awards, played in many different types of projects, and earned a Master's degree. You might have heard my music before too if you've ever listened to a podcast, TV commercials, Indy films, or played any video games. My most successful student thus far however, would have to be Jacob Tilley from the rock band Young the Giant. Not everybody wants to be a rock star though, and there are many aspects to the world of music. During the course of my musical adventure I've played with orchestras, been in rock, bluegrass, reggae, pop and blues bands, classical ensembles and more. I have also had ...

Valentina W. H. Chino Hills, CA

About Valentina W.

I am delighted as a music teacher and performer, with excitement and joy when my students really enjoy music. A musician is just like a 'Messenger of Love, Beauty, and Truth', bringing to people what is lovely, truthful and pure. Learning a musical instrument can open our eyes to see beauty of life, to embrace our sense of being and further, to prove that quality and purpose of life results from more than just physical satisfaction. For years we find that most studios, limited to resources and the pressure of exams - a competition-oriented approach, provide merely technical training on skills, but not a holistic encountering of music. We will try to bring about a different approach: Without diminishing the skill training, we will enhance the music appreciation training by guiding

As a amateur adult my major goal is to enjoy playing piano. Dr. Huang really showed her depth in providing substantial multimedia recordings and skill demonstration.

Really enjoy the lesson and can't stop thinking the stories shared behind the music piece...
