About Lena
I have been playing piano since I was a young child and have always had a passion for music. I apprenticed in China under a master piano teacher for 15 years and then immediately started performing in many different venues. 18 years ago, I started teaching piano and have enjoyed sharing my love of music with others. I am very patient with students and am very open to the type of music they would like to play. From pop music to classical, beginning to advanced, I am well versed. If there is a specific piece you want to play, I can fit it to your level. In my lessons, I try to make each experience meaningful and joyful.
I am also available giving personalized lessons online nationwide. Looking forward to meeting you and sharing the joy of music in person and online.

*** Lesson Details ***
In our lessons, beginning students wi
ll learn to read music, play their favorite pieces, how to do warm ups and learn basic skills. I use sheet music and introductory books in my classes and assign homework for their daily practice. After 3 months, each student will move to the next level and continue learning more advanced skills. More advanced students will learn how to understand and compose music, put expression into the pieces they play and improve their current skills.
I especially emphasize in basic skills, such as recognizing the notes, reading the notes, understanding the meanings of the dynamics, and expressing oneself through each individual piece. Moreover, the basic performance skills are also occupied very heavily in each lesson, such as scales, triads in single notes and octaves, in slower speed and gradually into faster speed, and of course, different levels of etudes to build a strong base for each student to achieve his/her beautiful performance.

*** Studio Equipment ***

*** Travel Equipment ***

*** Specialties ***

Lena is an awesome teacher! I had no previous experience in piano and she taught me a lot. She's really patient and understanding. She gave me exercises to get better while also working on piano pieces that I liked, which was great. I would definitely recommend her!

Lena is an incredible teacher! I played piano as a child and started taking lessons after 14 years of not having played to bring back my skills and make sure I don't develop bad habits. With Lena's help, I have been shocked at how quickly my technique came back! She is incredibly patient but a stickler for correct hand/wrist position, phrasing, and dynamics. I highly recommend Lena to piano players of every age and skill level!

About Phyllis
I hold a Masters Degree in Music from George Mason University.

A native of the Washington DC Metropolitan area, I have performed with the Washington Opera Company, at the Kennedy Center, and Historic Maryland's Adventure Theatre. New York City credits include performances off-Broadway for the York Theatre Company, CAP21, and the American Academy of Dramatic Arts.

I have been a vocal teacher in Brooklyn, New York, in addition to coaching students privately. Previously, I taught at the Virginia Institute of the Performing Arts, was Musical Director for The Episcopal Diocese of Virginia's Music and Drama Camp and The Snow Camp Historical Drama Society. I have also taught in Prince William County and Stafford County Virginia Schools and served as a judge for the VTA Middle School One-Act play Competition, VCDA District IX Choral Festi
val, and the Stafford County Choral Society Scholarship competition. In 2008, I served on the production staff as musical director at the Astors' Beechwood Mansion in Newport, Rhode Island.

Proud Member of Actors Equity Association, SAG-AFTRA, and the National Association of Teachers of Singers.

*** Lesson Details ***
Not only am I a trained singer, I am also an actor. I understand what it is to communicate and show emotion while singing. Before you can do this, you must also learn healthy singing technique. I will help blend the two.

The first half of each lesson will be dedicated to vocal exercises with the second half to songs I recommend or from your own repertoire. My recommendations may be from a different style of music than you are accustomed to, but I will be working towards helping you sing the style you want to sing.

Every voice is different. As a teacher I want to make sure that my students understand and are comfortable with what they are feeling and hearing. While I am an easy going person, I work very hard to help students find the right path to healthy vocal production.

*** Travel Equipment ***
n/a student must have piano in home for use by the teacher

*** Specialties ***

***please note: I have 3 cats. They do not come into the studio, but if you have allergies, this is possibly a problem.

Great Teacher

Phyllis is the best singing teacher I have ever had. She is completely knowledgeable about technique and personalizes each class for her students. Phyllis is so sweet, and believes that there is a singing voice inside of all of us. Since I have started taking lessons with her, my range has expanded and not only that, I have gained new knowledge about sheet music that I had never heard before. I would highly recommend choosing her as your teacher.

About Yuh-Jiun
-Bachelor of Music in Flute performance - University of California, Santa Barbara (2009-2013)

-Master of Music in Flute performance - Bob Cole Conservatory of Music, CSULB (2015-present)

Current Principle Flute of Bob Cole Conservatory Symphony Orchestra and Wind Symphony.

Current Flute player in Bob Cole Conservatory Wind Quintet.

Current and past students include: principle flute of Diamond Bar High School Wind Ensemble, principle flute of Pacific Symphony of Youth Wind Ensemble, 1st flute of Claremont Youth Symphony Orchestra.

I am a music teacher and musician in the Los Angeles area. I was born in Taipei, Taiwan. I started my music education at the age of three; it started with clapping, rolling around on the floor, and Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade. I was fascinated by the magic that music possesses; as Rimsky-K
orsakov unfold a tale of an enchanted land, with camel-riding merchants, bazaar, and princesses, without uttering a single word. I went on to learn a few instruments: xylophone, three different kinds of recorders, and then all this eventually led to flute.

I started studying flute at the age of 8, and it has been a delightful journey. In high school, I have participated in marching band, symphonic band, wind ensemble, and symphonic orchestra. I was also part of two prestigious local youth orchestra, the Orange County Youth Symphony Orchestra, and the Claremont Young Musician Orchestra.

I obtained my Bachelor of Music (Flute Performance) degree from University of California, Santa Barbara. I grew immensely as a musician during my time in Santa Barbara, I studied under Jill Felber, and I was able to expand my repetoire and gain considerable experience. I even played at the local farmers market as a street performer during the weekends. After graduation , I traveled to my home country Taiwan to study another great musician - Anders Norell, the principal flutist/flautist of the Taiwan Philharmonic. It was another great opportunity as I was able to garner teaching experiences, as well as attending master classes of great flutist/flautist such as Emmanuel Pahud.

As a music teacher, I encourage and inspire. I am foremost a music lover, then flutist and flute teacher. I aspire to spread the abundance of joy and beauty that music has bring into my life. As the great conductor and cellist Pablo Casals puts it: "Music is the divine way to tell beautiful, poetic things to the heart". Therefore, whether if you are a wobbly toddler, high school marching band enthusiast (as I once was), house wife looking for a new hobby, full time employee who always had a love for classical music, or grandmother who is looking for something other than crochet, join me on this wonderful journey.

"The pursuit of music would provide you a life time of joy".

She took everything at a slow an steady pace and gave helpful suggestions She knew the piece by Debussy that I wanted to learn, and she had it right in front of her, so she could make very helpful comments.

I am a college student working towards my music education degree. Helping students achieve their musical goals has always been extremely important to me.

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 age 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.

"I wish you music to help with the burdens of life and to help you release your happiness to others"-Beethoven
