Jessie M.

Pasadena, CA

About Jessie

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to his or her individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degre
e at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus, La Boheme (DTL nominee), The Impresario, The Grand Duke, Patience (DTL award), Cosi fan tutte, Little Women the Musical, Seussical the Musical, and many more. I have also appeared in several concerts, opera scenes, competitions (winning music scholarships and theater awards), and worked as a singer at churches, restaurants, and in pop bands. I continue to perform and study music because performing is a part of who I am and I could never live without it.

With this experience under my belt, I feel a desire to pass on my knowledge to students. I carry a strong passion to help people develop their abilities and make them their own. I truly believe that if someone wants something out of life then they WILL achieve it with dedication, perseverance, confidence, and by having FUN doing it!

About Phoebe

EDUCATION

HOWARD UNIVERSITY— Washington, DC
BA in Music Therapy, with Minors in Bassoon & Piano

UNIVERSITY OF PHOENIX— Pasadena, CA
Master of Business Administration (MBA)

I absolutely love teaching! I've been teaching music for over 25 years!
That's all I've ever known. Coming from a family of educators and musicians of two generations we wanted to do something for the community, so I co-founded Piano Play Music Systems,Inc. (an award winning inclusive private & group music program for children voted” The Best Piano School for Kids in LA”) 400+ student aged 19 months -
adults. I further developed an advanced group piano pedagogy series of method books by editing, creating and developing characters, lyrics for songs within the books to enhance more enthusiasm for learning with older children.
As a trained music therapist, I also co-founded Keylife Foundation,(a non-profit organization that offers services for special needs children, primarily in the autism spectrum). Developed a keyboard program and curriculum with the Braille Institute of Los Angeles and other special needs children focusing on mainstreaming them into regular classes. Music is such a gift to give to others and its an art that is non-judgemental. Its all about you. That's what I want to bring the student--to love and enjoy. If its a recital you want, you can have that too!

I am a current member Music Teachers Assn. of California which can give my students a platform to perform and participate in competitions in the future as well.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe lessons should have balance. I am going to give my very best to you in our time together, so let's rock it. I want you to get it and hopefully love it. We know you have a life, but put some time into your exercises and music and you will see progress.
I work well with children, but love adults too! If you want fundamentals, you've got the right lady. I teach classical repertoire and technique as well as pop, rock, standards. If you want more theory or ear training, I can do that too! Just Do it !

*** Travel Equipment ***
If we are able do additional computer theory, I will bring a laptop. I expect my students to have a full sized keyboard (if possible)or piano.

*** Specialties ***
Pretty general, across the board from Classical to pop.

Ann N.

Duarte, CA

About Ann

I am President of a growing and flourishing arts organization that specializes in education outreach and commissioning new works. I also tour nationally as a solo/principal soprano and have worked locally with companies like Los Angeles Opera, Opera Pacific, Opera a la Carte and many other Southern California performing arts organizations. I have a BA in vocal performance from Cal Poly Pomona and have worked as a professional singer and teaching artist for the last twenty-five years. In addition to teaching voice in my studio, I am currently working as a teaching artist in several diffe
rent schools and special education sites throughout Southern California. I love to teach, I love when students make breakthroughs, and I love overcoming challenges and solving problems. I specialize in light opera and musical theater. My philosophy is that if a student develops good singing technique, they can sing in any style, from pop music to opera, and keep their voice healthy. No two voices are the same and each of us has our own unique instrument, with the right training that instrument can grow and work at it's optimum. I approach my lessons with humor, putting the student at ease, if the student is comfortable and relaxed, they are more open to learning and their voice will sound much more free and beautiful.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons are designed around each student's particular need, especially when it comes to how the student likes to learn, not every person learns the same way, so flexibility is key. The student will be given a solid concept of good breath support, work with matching pitches, singing with a line, producing good tone quality and singing with good diction and projection. The student is ultimately going to learn how to become their own voice teacher, they will learn how to listen to their voice and be able to identify warning signs of vocal trouble and how to prevent and solve problems. After about three months the student will be producing much prettier tone and begin to grasp the concept of breath support. As time moves on, they will build their ability to support their voice, open up their sound so they can get more volume without hurting their instrument and the student will develop a better endurance, being able to sing longer and not tire out too quickly. As the students technique develops and strengthens, they will become more confident. If the student is already performing or has worked to the point where they are ready to start performing, then we will spend more time on interpretation and acting as well as developing a confident stage presence.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room: piano, mirror

*** Travel Equipment ***
I only teach from my house and do not travel.

*** Specialties ***
I am classically trained, have been singing professionally for over 20 years and I sing both Opera and Musical Theatre.

*** Lesson Details ***
My students can expect to have fun while they learn music literacy and the wonderful art and technique of playing a new instrument. I am friendly, positive, and upbeat in my teaching, yet I also maintain high standards for my students. I have a very warm personality and and very patient with my students, but of course I challenge them as well! I also put on a recital for my students at least twice a year so that their friends and family can appreciate the hard work they have put into their musical development. Performance venues for my students have included retirement homes, universities, and community centers. I encourage chamber music and organize for my students to play duets, trios, or quartets with each other.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Music stand, keyboard/piano

*** Travel Equipment ***
Flute students must have a music stand and instrument. Method books and sheet music will be discussed and decided upon in lessons.

Piano students MUST have either a real piano OR an electronic keyboard with WEIGHTED KEYS, and must be a full keyboard of 88 keys. Failure to secure an appropriate instrument within the first 3-5 lessons will seriously affect the students' ability to retain the information we will learn in lessons.

*** Specialties ***
I am a classically trained flutist and pianist. I also have experience in playing jazz music and improvisation.

Paul does a great job of balancing the theoretical and applied. He focuses on developing strong fundamentals and good habits but also delves into songs that apply new skills learned along the way at the appropriate pace. As a beginner, Paul has helped me get off to a good start where I'm learning a lot but also having a lot of fun.

A big plus is that he's got a real down-to-earth personality that makes the lessons even more enjoyable and really interesting to talk to about all things drums and otherwise.

My son has taken lessons with Paul for over 5 years. Not only is Paul an accomplished musician, he's a great teacher. His teaching style is positive and supportive. He has modified my son's lessons through the years, as his goals and needs have changed. Paul has always been professional, reliable and enthusiastic. He genuinely seems to enjoy what he does, and as a bonus, Paul is also a really nice guy, who has had a positive influence on my teenage son's life.
