Emma M. Cypress, CA

I offer preparation to the ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) examinations.

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.

As Samara's colleague at UCSD, I had the privilege of collaborating with her on various musical projects and observing her composition process from start to finish. She's a creative, talented and ambitious musician who is familiar with various musical instruments and techniques. More than that, she is a dedicated educator: she has extensive knowledge of musical pedagogy and is always looking for opportunities for further professional development. I highly recommend her for students of all levels!

Our daughter took voice and piano lessons with Samara for about 6 months in San Diego. She had never had lessons before but within that short time fame our daughter learned and progressed at an unbelievable pace.

Samara is patient and extremely talented with her gifts as well as with children. Our daughter thoroughly enjoyed all her lessons with Samara and we were definitely sad to see her go.

Samara is a fantastic teacher with an incredible level of patience and perfectly calm demeanor. My four year-old daughter enjoyed every lesson and couldn't wait to go back for more. Under Samara's tutelage, my daughter made incredible strides and developed a passion for piano.

I am grateful to Samara for teaching my daughter not only the fundamentals of piano, but how to enjoy the instrument while learning. I was certainly sad to have Samara leave San Diego, but that just means other students in Long Beach will stand to gain from Samara's talents.
Jill Z. Huntington Beach, CA

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.

About Jill

What will music lessons do for you? Problem solving and Memorization: My students learn problem solving skills that they need to help them practice their instruments efficiently. Music helps students develop more areas of their brains and increases the capacity for better memory and problem solving. The skills they learn in their lessons can be applied to how they study for school and aid in memorization techniques. Music can also be similar to solving puzzles and putting it all together. Can't read music yet? Skills learned: I teach students how to read music and music theory as they learn their instruments. Students learn how to perform for audiences and play for their own enjoyment. They learn how to work with other musicians and learn about stage presence for ...

Dustin C. Fountain Valley, CA

About Dustin

I love being a teacher, but even more than just that, I thoroughly enjoy assisting others on their journey to learning and making music a personal experience for themselves. Having said that, here is my teaching philosophy, including what you can expect from me as a teacher and as an individual: PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING Each student who comes to me is an individual. I customize each lesson, keeping in mind the student’s level of interest, goals, and intent. I put great care into judging when to push, when to pull back, and when to stop altogether and regroup. Sometimes there is frustration and as a teacher it is very important to take that experience and turn it into a positive learning situation. During the course of a lesson, we’ll take a "breather" and simply talk about ...

Things are going great with our piano lessons. The lessons material Dustin selected is excellent. We had hoped for an easy and slow start and that is what we are getting.

TonyS January 23, 2012
When I started taking lessons with Dustin, my goals were to improve my ability to play the piano, strengthen my ear, and to have a deeper understanding of music theory. Starting from our first lesson Dustin had a lesson plan already mapped out that would help me accomplish my goals. Now when I play piano, I have the ability to play and write songs with much less effort. The ear training Dustin provided has brought me to the point that I can identify chords and intervals in music clearly. With a good foundation of theory established, being assigned harmonic analysis of a musical piece is not a daunting task. Overall, I have been very happy with Dustin's style of teaching and plan to continue taking lessons with him.

Instruction includes reading music, sight reading, technical exercises, scales, chords, arpeggios, learning repertoire, rehearsing, and playing songs of the students choice.

About Matthew

I am a classically trained composer, guitarist, tenor, pianist and percussionist and I love sharing what I have learned with others and watching my students develop and grow. My goal is to teach my students until they are better than me, so I hold no secrets, tricks or techniques back and I devote my time and energy to help others become the best musicians, artists and people they can be. I have a BA in music composition and a BA in music history, both from California State University, San Bernardino. I play the guitar, bass, piano, drums, orchestral percussion, mandolin, ukulele, banjo, recorder, harmonica and didgeridoo and I am well versed in music theory, songwriting, recording, MIDI, arranging, singing (contemporary, broadway and opera), and acting/performing. I have performed in The

My lesson with Matthew was great. Even though I have experience with music he was able to help me out with small habits that I needed help breaking. Great teacher really well versed in different styles of music as well as small techniques which will help me build and become a better piano player. All around great experience for my first time taking a piano lesson. Thanks Matt!!!

I am looking for students ages 5 and up (including adult students of any age), ranging from a beginner to late intermediate level. I provide instruction mainly in repertoire and technique, with theory as necessary (and as desired). I can also provide (and encourage) instruction in aural skills (ear training). As a composer, I am also comfortable providing instruction in composition, if the student desires this as a supplement to his or her piano education.
