Emma M. Cypress, CA

About Emma

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 25 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 ...

We love Ms. Emma! My boys have been taking lessons with Ms. Emma for over a year. Ms. Emma is so patient, yet firm with them. She understands their very different personalities and adapts lessons to their differing personalities, styles, and needs. She appreciates their individuality and works from there. As a result, they have learned so much! Thank you Ms. Emma!

Excellent teacher for all age groups and skill levels.

As a senior, I started taking piano lessons about 1 year ago. Emma is very patient in her teaching. She gives encouragement and motivation when needed. Her musical knowledge and talent is amazing. I learned much more than I thought possible.

A great piano teacher is the key to success - at any age.

It is with great pleasure that I review my piano teacher of one year, Emma M. I took a few months lessons at age 7 and a few months in my teens and again in my 20s. After being separated from a piano for 30 years, I knew I had to get back to the music I always yearned to play. I searched TakeLessons.com for a piano teacher, and Emma M.'s resume caught my attention. Emma M. understands the adult learner. She helps me focus on what is important as an adult learning to play piano. Emma helps me to set goals, and she focuses my lessons on those goals. Emma M. is a professional educator who understands the human condition, and she puts her knowledge to practice. I am grateful to have found a knowledgeable, dedicated, encouraging, and motivating teacher in Emma M. I feel I have progressed, and I look forward to many more years of learning piano with Emma M.
Jean D. Anaheim, CA

About Jean

If you or your child is interested in taking piano/keyboard, guitar, voice lessons, or if your child is in need of academic tutoring, I would really like to be your instructor! You have the option of my traveling to your home, or you are welcome to my home studio, conveniently located in Anaheim. To tell you a little about myself, I was raised in a musical family introduced to music at a very young age. I took piano, organ, guitar, glockenspiel, and voice lessons for many years, and participated in music recitals. I enjoyed singing, and with my music theory background, participated in vocal/piano recitals, involved myself in every school musical, joined every choir, participated in out-of-state voice sight reading competitions, and ultimately joined the New York All State Choir.

I really think Jean is a great and fun teacher.

I am extremely glad Jean is my guitar instructor because she helps me understand and learn music very fast. She makes it fun and understanding for me. Jean is also friendly and encouraging. She makes me feel comfortable playing around her because she does not judge me and gives me feedback to help fix my mistakes. I enjoy every session with her because Jean is a great person.
Cory B. Cypress, CA

About Cory

I am a classically trained performer with a Master's degree from London's Royal College of Music. I love finding each student's own learning style to tailor the experience, and I encourage my students to make their own decisions about musical expression (with plenty of guidance, of course!). In my work as a performer I have played with orchestras all over the world, from the South London Sinfonia to the Bombay Chamber Orchestra. My musical life is full of variety, and I think that the experiences I've had as a musician make me a creative and thoughtful teacher. *** Lesson Details *** I wouldn't call myself strict, but I do have high standards. I expect my students to put in the work at home, so that we can get the most out of lesson time, but I think that my expectations are ...

Cory has been teaching my 11 year old son for only five lessons in Oboe and we couldn't be more than happier! Her calm and patient demeanor works well for my son. Cory is very knowledgeable and instructs my son without making it too overwhelming for him. Few weeks back, we had some company over and our son wanted to play a short piece for our guests. Everyone was so surprised that he only had two lessons and could play a melody (completely Cory's doing)! We feel lucky to have found a great instructor!

I have been taking violin lessons with Connie for almost 2 years now and i would highly recommend her! She has really helped me correct a lot of my bad habits from years of just playing on my own. Connie is professional, very patient and passionate about music and teaching. I take lessons with her privately (not with Take Lessons) and am thankful to have her as my teacher!

Pamela P. Los Alamitos, CA

About Pamela

My greatest passions are music and teaching . . . so teaching music is heaven for me! It’s my greatest joy to create a fun and creative environment so my students not only learn, but flourish! Music and performing is fun and rewarding. Learning how to be excellent at it should be fun and rewarding too! I've been teaching voice, music and performance to people of all ages for over 14 years. As a singer I specialize in Pop, Country, R&B, Gospel, Contemporary Christian, Rock, Classical and Musical Theater. As a teacher, I teach and perform all styles comfortably . . . except Rap . . . I'm not very good at rap . . . I can write rap, but don’t ask me to perform it for you. . . unless you're looking for comedy entertainment. I was born with a natural ear for music and a love

If you're looking for a great teacher then you've definitely found one. Pamela is funny, genuine, thorough, and a very intelligent teacher. She'll work hard to make sure you'll have the best experience. That means you'll learn a lot but you'll have lot of fun doing it too. She's been my teacher over a year and I hope she'll continue to teach me much longer. I strongly recommend you give her chance.

The best decision I ever made was to take piano and voice lessons. I'm so blessed that I've had Ms. P as my teacher. She's gifted, knowledgeable, witty, and professional. Lessons have never been boring and I've learned tons. Now that I've graduated from high school, I'm moving on to pursue a career as a professional musician and will continue to see Ms. P to fine tune for my auditions and special events. Thumbs up!!

Michael is a great instructor, hands down. He's only been working with my son for a short time and he is able to get him focused and learning new things each lesson. He is very flexible with his schedule and if we are ever to miss because he's on tour, he always makes up the lesson and figures out a time that works for us. I'm grateful that we have found him and look forward to hearing them play each week when he comes to the house. Oh, and did I mention that my son is only 7? Michael's youngest student!

Great teacher!

My 14 year old son has been taking drum lessons for the last couple of months with Michael and he really enjoys his lessons. In fact, half an hour wasn't enough so we increased his lesson length to an hour! Michael is very approachable and patient and my son feels comfortable asking questions. He has greatly improved, and is excited about starting a band with his friends!

Tips for Singing: Why Practicing Scales Matters
It's a common misconception that singers and instrumentalists are two completely different types of musicians. They're actually much more alike than you might think! The difference is that, as singers, your instrument is your body! Because of this, as you learn how to sing, you'll likely come across some specific issues of technique. One of the most important things for singers to work on is singing notes that are perfectly in tune. Generally, producing the correct notes for an instrumentalist
