I adjust to the student's needs and we find what music they would like to play. I have them try different styles of music and also help them with solos they want to learn and familiar music like Mario Brothers, movie music, and popular music. I teach through Suzuki Piano Book 6. They also learn classical music, rag time, jazz, and other styles. Music should be fun. Lessons combine various musical activities to keep the student stimulated and focused.

Jill's first violin student was in 1998-1999 and began teaching steadily ever since 2002 with annual recitals for students.

She can help you with your goals whether it be playing music for fun, joining a classical orchestra, college auditions, or learning music theory!

Students will learn using a combination of the Suzuki method, fun books with pop or movie music, and other method books.

Piano students study from the Faber & Faber books, Snell, Hanon exercises, and sc

Violin and viola students use Suzuki, Wolfahrt etudes, Bach Sonata & Paritat, Carl Flesch scales, other etude books and Sassmanshaus for young violin students. String students also learn how to shift out of 1st position and learn to tune.

Private violin students can participate in the Certificate of Merit program testing in Fountain Valley and Huntington Beach.

Jill has 2 optional recitals per year for students.

Jill can help students with orchestra auditions.

Irvine, CA

View Full Profile

Piano was my first instrument as a child and I never stopped loving it. I have been teaching it for the last 5 years and hope to instill that same love for music the way my piano teacher did for me! Students will learn how to read notes, music terminology, technique, and a wide variety of piano repertoire.

About Sheila
Sheila's interest in music began at the age of seven when she began private instruction in classical piano, and by the age of ten, she began playing the flute. Sheila received her Bachelor of Music with a degree in Music Education from the University of Redlands, where she studied flute with Sara Andon. There, she performed in the university's Wind Ensemble, Concert Band, and Orchestra. During her third year at university, she studied abroad at the Zoltan Kodaly Pedagogical Institute of Music in Kecskemet, Hungary.

Sheila has performed in many different venues around the world such as Ti
voli Gardens in Denmark, the Edinburgh Trade Center in Scotland, the Sydney Opera House in Australia, the Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles and the Greek Theater in Los Angeles and the Valley Performing Arts Center in Northridge, CA.

In 2013, Sheila graduated from California State University, Northridge with a Masters degree in Flute Performance where she studied flute with Sandra Kipp. At CSUN, she performed in the Wind Ensemble, Symphony Orchestra, Wind Symphony, Northridge Flute Quartet, and various chamber ensembles. She currently resides in Irvine and teaches private lessons in flute and piano.

*** Lesson Details ***
My goal as a music educator is to foster excellence in the art of music through private instruction. I have worked with students of all ages ranging from 5 to older adults.

In my studio, students will learn to read music and have a well rounded music education. This means that we will work on a variety of things such as music theory, music history, and a wide range of repertoire (from Beethoven to the Beatles!) While I have high expectations for my students, I do my best to keep the lessons relaxed and lighthearted. My hope is that the student is always engaged and interested during lessons.

My three expectations:

1. Come prepared both mentally and physically (this is especially important for flutists-- make sure to warm up prior to the lesson!)

2. Don't be afraid to ask questions and make mistakes. This is non-threatening territory, I'm here to guide you and help you. Remember that mistakes happen, we're human. Just make sure that you learn from those mistakes so as not to make the same ones and grow from each experience.

3. For parents-- BE INVOLVED! I can't tell you how often I've seen younger students excel when their parents were proactive in the experience. This means encouraging them to practice, coming up with a rewards system, and sometimes sitting in on the lesson to take notes so that you can work on what we did during the lesson at home together. It's difficult for music teachers to compete with iPads, Playstations and television, so let's get creative together!

*** Required Materials ***
Flute students must own a well maintained flute, as an instrument that is out of adjustment causes frustration and can initiate bad habits. In addition, the student must also have a metronome and tuner, a music stand, flute repertoire, and an assignment book for me to write down each week's assignments.

Piano students must have a working acoustic piano or digital piano (not a keyboard) in their home for piano lessons. The student must also have a metronome, piano repertoire, and an assignment book for each week's assignments.

We met Sheila when she was my daughter's orchestra flute instructor. My daughter was so enthusiastic about Shelia that we invited her to continue private lessons at home. Sheila is warm, supportive, knowledgeable, and incredibly inspiring. She is an excellent flute mentor and my daughter is excited to practice daily. We highly recommend Sheila!

I've been teaching piano for more than twenty years and many of my students have gone on to numerous competitions and won many awards. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play simple songs and recognize a few of the notes and as time goes on you'll be able to read and communicate with harder pieces. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Regina
At the age of fifteen, Ms. Regina graduated with honors from the Z. Paliashvili Special Music Gymnasium for Gifted Children in Tbilisi, Georgia. As a student of a famous Georgian pianist, Tengiz Amirejibi, she presented her country in numerous competitions. (Tengiz Amirejibi was a student of Heinrich Neuhaus, a famous Russian teacher and pianist.)

As a child, Ms. Regina gave many solo recitals and concerts with the Georgian Symphonic Orchestra. Ms. Regina earned her Doctorate of Musical Arts with emphasis on Advanced Piano Performance from the Yerevan State Conservatory. After graduating,
she worked with talented children in her alma mater for many years. Later in her professional career, Ms. Regina taught at the Tbilisi State Conservatory as well as the Moscow Music Gymnasium.

With more than eighteen years of professional teaching experience, Ms. Regina is able to offer her students a diverse range of educational resources. She specializes in teaching piano, performance, and music theory to students of all ages and levels.

Ms. Regina's teaching techniques are based on a combination of the famous Russian Music School (based on music giants such as Konstantin Igumnov, Daniel Barenboim, and Heinrich Neuhaus) and the American Music Education System. This combination allows each student to work at a pace comfortable for him/her, and helps all students make significant progress in the areas of sight reading, ear training, and performance skills.

***Teaching Schedule***
Ms. Regina teaches in her Glendale studio and the surrounding areas every day of the week except for Saturdays. She teaches in her Orange County studio located in Fountain Valley on Saturdays.

***Travel Area and Special Rates***
If the system shows that your location is out of my travel area, please contact me by messaging through TakeLessons! Also feel free to inquire for discounts for siblings!

***Online Classes***
I have gotten many questions regarding whether I teach online piano lessons. Due to the nuances associated with this subject, it is crucial for the student to take lessons face-to-face. It is extremely important to learn and get used to the correct hand positions for all students; otherwise, problems with playing harder pieces will inevitably arise. I feel that students taking online piano lessons truly do not get all the benefits of taking the lessons face-to-face. Please don't hesitate to email me if you have any other questions or concerns!

With 10 years of teaching experience, I specialize in working with beginning students of all ages. In lessons I strive to build a strong foundation of reading music, rhythm and music theory. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Grace
Grace has extensive experience teaching private and group lessons, including lessons in Piano, English Horn and reed making. Her students have gone on to win scholarships and place in honor orchestras. Currently, her students hold the top spots in nTyme's (North Torrance Youth Musicians Ensemble) Chamber Orchestra.

Locally, Grace has performed with the Dana Point Symphony, Symphony Irvine, as well as other groups around Southern California. Previously, she was a long time member of the Cheshire Symphony.

Whether you choose to take lessons online, in my studio in Long Beach, or in your h
ome, I strive to make each lesson engaging, informative, and fun! Students are expected to practice in-between lessons and come to lessons prepared with their instrument and music. I also encourage students to bring any music that they're interested in learning to their lessons.

**In-home Lessons**
Currently, I'm traveling to the Southbay area on Tuesdays and Thursdays only. I'm traveling to the Fullerton/North Orange County area on Wednesdays only. If you reside within those areas and the time you'd like isn't in my availability, please let me know, as I may be able to make it work (depending on location). If you reside outside these areas, or are looking for an alternative lesson day, please contact me before booking lessons.

**Group Lessons**
I don't offer traditional group lessons, as I've found they slow down the progress of both students and therefore aren't cost effective. Arrangements can be made for students that would like back to back lessons instead. Please contact me for more information before booking lessons.

Please feel free to ask me any questions you may have, and I can't wait to meet you!
