Private Songwriting Teacher

I have years of experience teaching foundations of composition , music theory and aural skills. The focus have been on understanding of chords, harmonic analysis, form and structure analysis and harmonization. The Aural skills focuses on melodic, rhythmic and harmonic recognition through the process of dictation and or melodic-rhythmic imitation. Extra emphasis on color & tune through use of pedal techniques , alterations, grace notes are also introduced, in parallel to basic musical skills.

We signed our 5 year old up for beginning lessons with Ardalan, and he was very engaging and patient with our son. Our son responded well to his method of teaching. We were looking for lessons to encourage his natural interest in piano until he was old enough to take lessons at his school, which is more convenient for us. We very much appreciated Ardalan’s support and enthusiasm he shared with our son.

My son has been playing piano for 9 years but he hit a wall with ISSMA state silver in piano solo last year, so our goal is achieve piano solo state gold this year. We made the switch to Ardalan didn't know what to expect just 2 months before ISSMA events and my son has earned ISSMA state distinction gold medal this year with Ardalan's help and hard working.

Ardalan's teaching method is eye opening to us after many piano teachers we have experienced in the past. He has been teaching my son many technical piano playing skills he desperately needs but no other teachers have ever taught him before. And Ardalan's performance preparation tips are so helpful for my son to perform in the real event.
Hakan Mert T.
It was our first lesson with Ardalan, and we were really impressed with his teaching capabilities as well as his personality. We are so lucky to have him as our piano teacher and I highly recommend him for anyone interested.

Josh was fabulous! Really talked to both my eight and 10-year-old about their goals and broke things down in a way that was exciting and gave them mastery over what they learned today. Very excited to continue

Online Songwriting Teacher

I am a composer and have taught professionally for over 20 years. I taught at Berklee College of Music, New England Conservatory, Musicians Institute, the Cornel School of Music and the California College of Music.

I worked in New York, Boston and later in Los Angeles with many songwriters, producers and vocalists.
With my songwriting students, I work on their melodic development, chord progressions, song forms and how to create music drawing from the best contemporary resources. As a pianist, composer and producer, I am able to assist in giving shape to the songs and ideas of songwriters.

My classes are always fun, stress free but with a strong curriculum, organized and dynamic.
Onsite, I teach music at my studio in Los Angeles. My studio is located in the historical Village Green.
Online, I teach music via Skype or Zoom using different cameras to enhance the music lesson experience.

I would love to work with you!
Please send me a message to talk about your musical ...

"He just makes our music so much better. An exceptional teacher.

Randy has worked with my partner and I for 15 years. He took our melodies, arranged them, and turned them into songs that were actually singable. Watching Randy run a rehearsal and teach people songs is a sight to behold. He makes it happen quickly and efficiently, and we always have fun.

In all sincerity, I consider Randy to be the most talented musician I've ever known. He is a great teacher, even of inexperienced adults, and fun to work with. A winning combination all the way around.

Songwriting 101: Using the "Long-Line" Concept

One of the most wonderful and rewarding things about the art of songwriting is that there are many different ways to approach making your own music. Arlington,TX music teacher Ric F. previously shared with us his tips on using rhythm as a guide to writing. Today, Ric would like to add another aspect to your understanding of writing songs, something he calls the "long-line" concept. Unlike visual art where you can see it all at once, music takes “time” to reveal itself. Today I would like …
