About Paul
I have played the guitar for twenty years and have studied a wide variety of music including jazz, classical, folk, blues and rock. I’m skilled in acoustic, electric and classical styles of the guitar. I have an open mind about music and can appreciate any style or type. I have a firm background on music theory, so I am able to explain what I am teaching. I excelled in all my classes in college, music and Gen Eds, with a GPA over 3.75. I also have experience in teaching guitar or bass to students ranging from the ages of six to sixty six. I enjoy taking what I have learned and passing it on to someone else to experience. I believe this is one way you can leave your mark in music. I believe the experience I have playing in bands, and learning songs with my ability of having relative pitch will make my students improve quicker. I am a
lso a very skilled sight reader and can recognize key signatures and musical notation. I’ve also been playing electric bass guitar for 13 years now and have the same skill set as my guitar playing. In fact I am hired to perform more often as a bassist than a guitarist.
I went to Columbia College between 2000-2003 and I completed a Bachelor Arts in Music, Concentration: Instrument Performance.
I also went to Harper College between 1997-2000 and I completed an Associates in Fine Arts of Music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I tailor all my lessons to the individual students interests and wants.
Whatever your goals are, I'll help you get there.
If you just want to learn music theory or how to write a song, I can teach you all that and more.
I will teach you how to read music but if you don't wan't to do that, I will teach you how to read tablature.
I'll push you to learn your instrument and to practice but I won't force to practice anything that you are not interested in.
After about 3-6 months of lessons with me you will be able to play songs that you wanted to learn and you will also know all the essential fun basics of your instrument.
Learning the guitar or bass is fun! And as your teacher I will make you want to practice.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons will be downstairs which has music stands, guitars, cords and books.

*** Travel Equipment ***
My guitar and music stand. They should have a guitar and an amp if needed.

*** Specialties ***
Anything from classic rock to blues, jazz, classical, modern rock, punk rock, music theory, improvising and songwriting.

About Amber
I am an experienced, enthusiastic music instructor, who started playing piano around 8 years of age and participated in many musical activities. I received my Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Massachusetts, majoring in Music Education (voice and piano). I have appeared around the world as a soloist singing jazz and pop, including the Blue Note, NYC, and appeared as a guest soloist at the 2000 Southern California Summer Special Olympics. I also participated in ensemble groups such as the Masterworks Chorale in NYC, and the Verdi Opera Chorus of Southern California; and currently I volunteer at the Senior Center leading/accompanying the Sing-Alongs.

Inspired by my love of music, I have been teaching piano and voice for over 25 years from NY to LA and now Orange County. In conjunction with my teaching skills, I have
excellent communication skills, patience and enthusiasm, and work well with children and all ages. I feel that music is an important part of education, and it aids in the development of cognitive and motor skills. And most of all, it is fun and rewarding, and a skill to last a lifetime!

Upon our first meeting, the instructor gave my 12 year old daughter several breathing and vocalizing exercises to do at home for additional practice. Amber also quickly identified my daughter's vocal range and guided her on how to utilize various techniques to bring out her singing voice properly, patiently explaining the why's and how's behind each technique. Amber is also able to provide criticism/correction in a warm and positive way that the student is not left feeling embarrassed nor discouraged. We are looking forward to more lessons with Ms. Amber!

As the year closes I have actually learned to play guitar, in a basic form but actually enough that I was able to play at my church in just over ten classes. This is exiting as I thought at 60 years old I would never learn to play a guitar. I'm looking forward to picking it up next year and expand my knowledge. Daniel is a great instructor and a very kind human being. I recommend him to anyone.

About Jennifer
I've been playing the piano since I was seven years old. After going to college and studying music education, I started teaching piano and have fallen in love with this job. I love music and I love sharing it with others. I've been teaching piano for over 30 years. My students receive individualized lessons based on their interest and ability. They learn to read music notation, play core piano literature, learn proper playing technique, theory, music history, and composition.
All students participate in a yearly recital and have the option of entering the NJMTA Piano Festival to be adjudicated each year.
I have a two-fold goal with each student: that she or he become an excellent musician, and that we have fun together as that happens.

Lesson Details
Each lesson from the very beginning includes some technique, whether that is pe
ntascales (5-note scales), full scales and chords, etudes, etc. Then we work on repertoire, learning new songs which challenge the student to expand his/her musicianship skills, with beginners using a lesson book while intermediate and advanced students become familiar with the traditional body of piano literature.
For beginners, theory is taught using accompanying theory books. For more intermediate/advanced students, theory is incorporated into the lesson using the music the student is studying.
Composing can be added into the lesson when the student is ready. The student is guided through the process of writing a song and then enters it into the computer and prints it out for their very own copy. When enough students have completed original compositions, I host a composition recital where students can play their creations.

I'm an adult piano student who's never taken any piano lessons before. I committed myself to 5 lessons with Jennifer to see if we would be the right fit for each other. After about 10 lessons, I can tell you that she is an excellent piano instructor! She is very detail oriented and knows when to challenge you and when to provide more guidance. When you don't understand something, she's very good at explaining it at multiple angles. She jots down notes on problem areas, which helps when you practice. During the lesson, she ensures that you have good foundations, such as hand positioning and other motor skills. She prioritizes a portion of the lesson to important fundamentals, such as scales, chords, and music theory. All the while, she always keeps things interesting through a variety of songs. Overall, she's great at bringing out my strengths and addressing my weaknesses. I feel as if she's fully invested in me to be the best that I can be, so I'm confident that she would do the same for you or your child. Definitely would recommend!

As a "(much) older student", and former high school teacher, I am very impressed with Jennifer. Every lesson begins with the basics- scales and chords, then on to technique and theory, using pieces that I've selected myself to build my repertoire. Jennifer has a very calming and matter-of-fact manner, which I love, and her knowledge of musical history and way of casually imparting it is a pleasure. I see myself taking lessons with her for a long time to come, and would recommend her HIGHLY to students of all ages and ability levels.

I've been teaching private lessons since 2012 and have loved helping my students realize their potential, gain confidence, and find their own voice. I have been trained in the LAMDA system, as well attending Interlochen Arts Academy. I'm an energetic and empathetic person; my strong perceptive skills allow me to adapt to each of my student's individual needs.

About Dorothy
Greetings! As a classical pianist, I have been playing and performing for 20 years and have been teaching for 8 years. I have received a conservatory style education and possess a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance from the University of Redlands and Master's of Music in Piano Performance from Bob Cole Conservatory at CSULB. I currently serve on the board of director's for the University of Redlands Summer Piano Camp where I teach classes on art, sight reading, and coach advanced ensembles. I also am a staff accompanist at the University of Redlands and am also a freelance accompanist for vocalists and instrumentalists.

I graduated from the prestigious Idyllwild Arts Academy for high school and first attended their summer program at 15. I received an invitation and played in the Oberlin International Youth Piano Competition at ag
e 16. I won awards through MTAC and MTNA as a student. At the University of Redlands I was a recipient of the Mary E. Lehigh Endowed Music Grant and a winner of the highly competitive University of Redlands Concerto Competition. I performed as a soloist with the University of Redlands Symphony twice, the first being MacDowell's 2nd Piano Concerto in D Minor Op. 31 and Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals.

While pursuing my Master's of Music degree I was selected to perform as a soloist and collaborator in numerous concerts on and off campus. I also received a Graduate Research Grant and published my Master's thesis while in attendance. My primary teachers have been Louanne Long and Dr. Shun-Lin Chou.

As a teacher I work towards the individual's needs, identifying strengths and weakness and learning modalities to create a specialized lesson plan to help the student excel and meet all their artistic goals. I focus on a holistic approach to education and not only teach playing and note reading but also rhythm, ear training, theory, performance practice and interpretation. It is only through a well rounded approach that one may truly master this craft. I have high expectations for my students and I know they have high expectations of me as well.

I teach out of my teaching studio in my quiet and private home where I have both a Schumann 6'3 grand piano and a Baldwin upright. Both pianos are very well taken care of and in excellent condition.
