Alfred method used. I teach Beginners to Intermediate level.

About Laura

I teach voice, piano and guitar. My Music Degree from Point Loma Nazarene University is in Vocal Performance. I love what I do. I teach children through adults. I have lots of experience in worship
leading for church if that is of interest.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am easy-going, but I expect you to practice. I am thorough in my approach. For piano lessons, I utilize the Alfred method. I emphasize note reading and theory in each genre, whether taking guitar, voice or piano. I am currently using Hal Leonard's Guitar Method books for guitar and a few different things for vocal curriculum. All lessons can be supplemented with what you are currently interested in or working towards. I enjoy helping prepare young people for their performances in theatre arts. Lessons can be combined, for example; if you are interested in both voice and

guitar, you can take a longer weekly lesson and have both subjects covered! Weekly assignments are given and checked to see if done before proceeding to the next step! I do not recommend students come every other week. I recommend one lesson per week.

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar and books. Student provides their guitar during lesson and for piano, must have a piano or keyboard at home for practice.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in helping young worship leaders hone their gifts. I enjoy preparing people for their musical theatre performances.

Laura took time to learn about my 5 year old son & ask questions in order to connect before just jumping into the guitar lesson.

My son is having a wonderful experience taking lessons online with Laura. She has an exceptional knowledge of music and is able to share this knowledge in a way that is easily understood. I value her positive feedback, timeliness, and consistency. She takes interest in the student and works to draw out their passion for playing the instrument. As a parent, I would highly recommend hiring Laura.

Private Piano Teacher

I've been playing piano since I was 5. I gave it up for a little while to pursue guitar, and then began self-teaching around age 15, and especially throughout college. I pair piano hand-in-hand with songwriting as use techniques and scales to build a lesson plan for my students, as well as classical or modern music pieces.

About Olivia

I love to create. The way I'm most comfortable creating is through writing; whether it's a song, a short story, a poem or a script. Writing has always been the bass line in my life; the heartbeat.

Music and film are both passions of mine. I graduated from Berklee College of Music where I studied Songwriting and Music Therapy. I was pushed to my absolute limits lyrically and musically within these majors, and I am so grateful for it now that I'm on my own creative journey.

I have a great deal of experience, but I am also still learning. I think it is very important as a teacher to always be learning, especially through their students. Teaching these lessons is, of course, about progress and advancement - but also about enjoyment, confidence building and positive encouragement.

Private Piano Teacher

Hello! Through my four years at Juilliard I have studied with amazing pianists such as Frank Kimbrough and Dan Nimmer.
Although I majored in jazz trombone, I have been a proficient piano player since I was very young. I use the piano everyday to compose, so I am more than capable of teaching beginning to intermediate players how to properly play. I have a very cohesive lesson plan designed to give any student a well rounded basis for playing the piano. Teaching has always been my biggest passion, I can't wait to work with you!
Contact me for more info!

Happy practicin'!

About Sam

Hello! I'm Sam and I'm a graduate of the Juilliard School. I'm a huge music nerd and teaching is one of my biggest passions. For eight years, I have been teaching students of various ages and backgrounds, compiling lesson plans designed to work with students at ALL LEVELS. As a prominent NYC based jazz trombonist/bandleader/composer, I am more than qualified to teach any student.
I have given numerous masterclasses, workshops, lessons and group lessons in everything from classical trombone technique to jazz history. I offer fun, cohesive lessons catered to your ability in the following subjects:

--Trombone (jazz and/or classical, beginning to advanced)

--Jazz Harmony (any instrument [bass, piano, drums, guitar, etc.] beginning to advanced)

--Piano lessons (beginning to intermediate)

--Music Theory and/or AP Music Theory p

rep (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Ear Training (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

--Arranging/Composition (any instrument, beginning to advanced

--Songwriting (any instrument, beginning to advanced)

*Since I charge the same rate for each of these subjects, many of my students request to split the lesson time into 2 or more subjects

If you have any questions about my specific lesson plans for a particular subject, please don't be afraid to shoot me an email!

Happy practicin'!

ok Sam is fantastic!
the connection was a little weird at first but it was on my end I think because the second I moved to my living room it was steady. Rather than find a local teacher I just figured to see if I could find someone affordable online, and wow, he also went to Juiliard!
6 out of 5!

Maggie
I'm so lucky I found Sam! I used to play piano and was hoping to brush up on technique, learn jazz chords/harmony, and play along improvising with a jazz soloist. Getting a Juilliard trained musician for this price is a STEAL, I highly recommend.

Lawrence
I bounced around with a few other teachers who had flashy profiles, but none of them had as thorough, personalized, or challenging of an approach as Sam. He was so quick to diagnose my mistakes and had a way of making the trombone fun rather than frustrating (imagine that!!)

TEN STARS!!!!

Private Piano Teacher

My primary lessons can begin with a lesson book or by ear training. It is up to the student to decide which method works best. The basic lessons for beginners, in most cases, will require some form of music notation and theory to understand what makes music happen. Ear training is a method used for those who have some basic knowledge of music or who can sight read already. My music teaching method is personal and uniquely developed and designed from over 20 years of personal music teaching to both children and adults.

About Clayton

I am currently a church organist and have over 20 years of experience in teaching children and adults piano and organ lessons. My methods are traditional and contemporary. I received my Bachelors of Music Degree from Marygrove College located in Detroit, MI, and also an Associate Degree in Music Composition from Oakland Community College located in Farmington, MI. My music concentration is classical, gospel, R&B, and jazz. I love all genres of music and enjoy teaching them. I also teach electronic music through software for those interested in learning about music workstations or DAW (Digital Analog Workstations). I also specialize in teaching by ear training if you want to get away from the traditional method of learning to play by music notation. My method of teaching to play music by ear is unique and comes from over 20 years of

personal experiences with teaching individual students who wanted to get the ball rolling apart from learning in a traditional manner.

About Jill

Hi! I have a passion for teaching and playing the piano (of course!) and I want to share it with you. I am my happiest when I am teaching, and I strive for all of my students to experience the equally rewarding joy of learning the piano.

I have been playing since I was 3 years old and taking lessons since I was 5. I graduated with a degree in Piano Performance from BYU, where I learned so much more than just playing the piano. I have experience teaching studio and online lessons, accompanying and collaborating, tutoring students during practice, and playing for weddings and events.

Outside of music, I love dogs, being in the sunshine, and cooking and baking. My favorite pastime is being with my husband and dreaming about getting a puppy.

Private Piano Teacher

I want to help you be more creative with your unique musical expression. I fell in love with music as a child and want to pass on my love of music to help others to grow musically. I have spent the past 50 years performing and teaching music in just about every setting in New York and Los Angeles. I have taught many adults and children on all levels from beginner to advanced and professional musicians. I work on piano technique, Jazz improvisation, composition, music theory, and music production. I have also coached many pro and semi-pro musicians to advance and develop their careers. I will do whatever it takes to help you grow your music to the next level. I love teaching and look forward to finding out how I can help you reach your musical goals.

About Richard

I am a Professional recording artist, in the field of Jazz and World music. I have multiple CDs out that have been played and sold internationally. In my performing career I tour internationally performing both original music and World music. In my own music, I for a very long time have been interested in the meeting of rhythm and beautiful harmony. Growing up in 60s and 70s I had the very good fortune to hear many of the legends of Jazz ( and to study with a few of them-Victor Feldman, Clare Fisher, and Mike Garson were some of my teachers). I have bachelors degree in music, and a Masters degree in Film Composition from the Grove Music Conservatory in LA.
Along with my own musical interests, I have also always loved to teach music. I enjoy helping to grow others musianship- whatever this means. I teach all levels and ages. I think

that the fundamentals of music, such as piano technique, theory and music reading are all important; but I also think all musical subjects should be taught in a way that allows for the growth of the student's own creativity and personal self expression. I have taught Jazz improvisation to many students, along with music composition, song writing, applied music theory , and music production. I also have coached many professional music careers to advance in new creative ways in the musical world. Also , I have worked with special needs kids, teaching them music and helped them to open up to the world of musical possibilities.
I believe that each person has their own unique song to sing, and that music is the tool to release this song and let it fly. It is only a matter of hewing away through the layers to release the diamond that is hidden inside.

Richard has taught the piano to members of our family for the past 12 years. When i decided to take lessons myself, i quickly developed a love for the process and an appreciation for my progress. When Richard suggested we continue our lessons through WhatsApp FaceTime after learning in person for a year, i decided to give it a try and have not regretted it. The lessons are efficient and Richard manages to keep me interested and challenged, with a great balance of technical and practical tips that help me enjoy so much my progress .

Richard is great to work with. Flexible and patient. Our daughter had no previous knowledge of music and now can play music by reading the music.

It's wonderful to have a teacher who also uses niggunim as lesson material.

Richard is a top musician and an amazing teacher. He teaches methodically and with expertise. My son learned so well and plays beautifully (despite learning exclusively via video chat!).
We are so happy we did this, my son plays proudly by small events we make at home.
Thank you Richard!
