For Barbershoppers I need a smooth transition to my falsetto. Kwame put me at ease, we did some exercises and found the transition without me even noticing the change. He is a gifted teacher. I look forward to our next appointment as we start reading music from the Barbershoppers music book. I did not expect such a warm atmosphere. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Susan is not only an accomplished musician, but she is also an amazing teacher and mentor. She elevated my daughter’s musicianship and helped her find her true potential as a classical pianist. My daughter’s success as a competitive pianist is due to Susan’s instruction, encouragement, and guidance. When we started lessons with Susan, we struck gold!
John
Susan is an experienced concert pianist with world-class expertise in the instrument, yet she is also an approachable educator + coach who has done a great deal to advance my technique and interpretation. I’m glad to have found her. Advanced pianists will be pleased to find someone who can help raise their game even further, but regardless of your skill level, I don’t think you’ll regret signing up with her.

Susan was a PERFECT match for me. I really hate leaving her great knowledge. She has poured out to me her expert knowledge. Unfortunately, I am unable to continue. Susan is a teaching jewel to be cherished.

At my studio, every lesson is specially and uniquely catered to each student. Lessons aren’t prepared with each student's learning style in mind because no two children are alike. There is no “one-size fits all” curriculum! Students will learn to thrive at a steady pace and one that matches their own, while still having their skills molded and stretched!

I have been studying music all of my life and began giving lessons 3-4 years ago. My first lesson was for alto saxophone and then I began to take on piano students. I love to watch my students grow and feel the success of a great performance and also be able to understand that failure is still growth!

By spring 2020, I will have graduated with my Bachelor's degree in Music Education and teacher certification, to go on to obtain my Master's Degree.

Hi there! I graduated from CSULB’s Bob Cole Conservatory with a Bachelor’s in Vocal Performance, and I also has 10 years of piano study under my belt and have completed Certificate of Merit Level 7. Let me know your goals with piano and I can help you get there, whether you're an ADULT (trust me, it's NEVER too late to start. Don't listen to nay-sayers, they are just afraid), a TEEN (this is the time of your life when music can seize your heart so if you have favorite artists, let's play their songs after we solidify some piano basics), or a child (we can learn at your pace while having fun). Progress is built with consistent practice and familiarizing yourself with piano, even if you're just messing around on it during the week.

Online Classical Piano Teacher

I have been giving lessons since 2006, and I have seen music enrich the lives of many in countless ways. Whether you are looking for a new hobbie, a new passion, or for something to keep your kids engaged and busy, learning an instrument has endless benefits both long term and short.
I will make a personalized lesson plan based on 2 big questions: why do you want to take lessons? Where do you want to be at the end of it?
Lets go from there.

About Rachel

I have been playing the piano and the trombone since childhood. Growing up in a musical family, music has always played a big part in my life. I was active in school bands in addition to taking private lessons throughout grade school. In high school I was a member of Tri-M (a musical honor society)
