Milton J.

Corona, CA

I have been teaching the wonderful instrument off the piano for two years.

For children, I use the Beanstalk's Basics for Piano lesson books that includes lessons and homework in a fun and engaging way to promote retention.

For beginners, I use the publication A New Approach to Keyboard Harmony to learn chord progressions, sequences, modulations, realization of both figured and un-figured basses, basic improvisation, and score reading. Learning these techniques will help transition students seamlessly to various styles and genres that incorporate the piano, helping you learn and love the piano without frustrating stoppages that often lead us away from lesson continuity.

From there, I utilize the Hal Leonard Student Piano Library series to promote chord inversion, syncopation, arpeggiation, pedaling, and key centering.

About Milton

Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it! As a recent graduate of the University of California, Davis with a double major in Music History & Ethnomusicology and African-American &
African Studies; a former co-host of the popular hip-hop radio show ATF Radio: All Things Fresh on KDVS 90.3 FM; a former Music Director of The Afterglow of UC Davis; and a current Vocal Music Performance graduate student at the University of Redlands, I have come in contact and learned from a vast amount of different musicians and professionals. A classically-trained bass-baritone with roots in R&B, Soul, Rock, Pop, and Jazz, I have aspirations to help each and every student realize their full musical potential.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching style is very friendly, inviting, and audience-driven. In the beginning, I strive to refer to my presence in the lessons as a fly-on-the-wall, so to speak, in order for my students to get out of their own way and sing as if no one's watching. From there, I apply the audience aspect - singing not only for enjoyment, but for entertainment for yourself and for others as well. If one is able to build that frame of mind in their lessons, their actual performances will not be too far from what they've already dealt with before.

I provide teaching and repertoire books, as well as instrumentation for myself (i.e. guitar, misc. tools for specific lessons). I expect my students to provide a piano (or keyboard equivalent), pitch pipe, and instrument if applicable (i.e. guitar), and, of course, themselves!

Wonderful instructor! Milton has a great attitude and is a joy to be around. My son loves learning from him and we are very thankful for finding such a patient, creative and skilled instructor. Student's Review - Milton is an exciting and fun guitar teacher. He has exceeded expectations and made otherwise bland lessons interesting and fun. He is always quippy and easy to be around. Having him as an instructor has made me grow to love the guitar even more.

Milton is a great teacher! He explains everything, teaches you theory and proper techniques. He is down to earth and makes you feel comfortable. He pushes you out of your comfort zone, but in a good way so that you can grow as a singer. I am very glad I chose to take lessons with him!

Barbara D.

Yorba Linda, CA

I have been teaching piano for over 30 years and was the former head of the Cerritos College Children's Piano Program. I specialize in classical piano and include note reading, sight reading, music theory, and also popular music. I have two grand pianos at my studio and musical teaching aids as well as age and level appropriate books on hand which I supply to the students. My own university training was thorough and my students are able to make rapid progress. I try to adjust the repertoire according to the students interests as much as possible to make the lessons enjoyable.

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 Cerritos College where I was trained by one of the composers of the method. For age 6 and up, I use a different method book with CD and theory book that the students find motivating and enjoyable. However, most of the repertoire that they study comes from supplemental pieces that I choose for each individual according to their interests and abilities. I play for them at the lesson and encourage them to listen to music at home as music is a language and must be heard to be reproduced.
I believe I have a lot to offer as a teacher because I have a good combination of excellent training and also the ability to make the lesson enjoyable and relaxing for the student. A frequent comment I hear at the end of the lesson is " Is it over already?"

*** Lesson Details ***
The lesson content depends on the interest of the students. I have children who insist on mostly classical music and others that want to play "Star Wars". The format of the lessons includes finger exercises for good technique, new pieces, review pieces, and written work known as music theory. My students study many pieces at a time and change repertoire frequently in order to foster good sight reading skills.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have two grand pianos and a well stocked music library in a large sitting room.

*** Specialties ***
I have a B.A. degree not just in music, but in piano performance, and also post graduate piano studies at the Music Academy of the West. At UCSB, a music degree without piano performance emphasis only required passing a intermediate level proficiency exam. I have a classical background and teach beginning through advanced piano students. I teach children as young as four years old using the "Music for Little Mozarts" course.

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.

James R.

Riverside, CA

About James

James is a recent graduate who received his Bachelor of Arts in Music with an emphasis in education at Cal Poly Pomona. While at Cal Poly Pomona he was the Director of the Bronco Pep Band, a student conductor for the Concert Band, and also performed with many ensembles including the Jazz Band, Latin/Salsa Band, and the Songwriter Showcase.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid back person that believes in the philosophy of "Learn by doing". To me mistakes are not to be shunned but are to be reflected upon in order to improve and develop.

Students will learn to be patient when playing
music as all things take time. Rome was not built in a day. My students will learn to be versatile musicians with knowledge in theory and musicianship.

After spending time with me students will be able to demonstrate their knowledge of music theory and be capable of sight reading basic material. More advanced students will be able to improvise using scales and be able to master the fundamentals of their instrument or their voice.

Great Music Teacher!

James is teaching my daughter how to play the guitar. I'm really pleased with the progress my daughter is making as a result of James' teaching. He knows his guitar and many other facets of music! He is also patient and can properly explain concepts in a way that is easily understood. When it was time for my daughter to buy her own guitar and accessories, James was very helpful with recommendations. He is very professional and has a friendly personality. His influence in my daughter's life has heightened her enthusiasm for both playing the guitar and music in general.

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.

Music Theory · In studio
Brianne is an incredibly skilled and versatile musician. I was first convinced of her talent when I attended one of her performances. At that point I did not need reviews or anyone else to convince me she has a gift.

I highly recommend Brianne as an instructor. She has taught me a great deal about music theory and composition. Something she offers her students that I haven't found anywhere else is the ability to arrange or compose songs for their skill level. Sometimes learning out of the books isn't enough, and Bri takes her lessons to a much deeper level by providing the music students need to play in order to learn.

In addition to all that I have learned from her over the past year, Brianne has also assisted me in my personal business ventures by composing original music for videos and entertainment segments. If you're looking for someone with diverse talent, she's the one!

Regardless of what instrument you play, taking lessons from Brianne will make you a better musician. I highly recommend her.

Brianne is awesome. She has such a natural talent for music that she can't help but want to share it with others. She really understands music on a fundamental level and easily conveys that knowledge to her students. Over the years, I have worked with Brianne on the piano, flute, and voice, and she has amazed me every single time with her ability to share her talent and to see that same talent flourish and grow in other people. Music is her life and her excitement for it is contagious. I highly endorse her as a musician and as a teacher. You will not regret learning from Bri.

Bri is a stellar musician, with an uncanny ability to explain at the most basic level, from simple to advanced concepts musically. I have taught over 40+ years of piano, and she is by far the most exceptional student I have ever had. She is patient, kind, and clear. Her standards are high, but never unattainable. She teaches correct rhythm, note knowledge, theory, and dynamics, as well as musical interpretation, or musicianship. You will not only play or sing notes,but you will create MUSIC with her help. You won't be sorry if you take lessons from Bri.
