Marsha K.

Roseville, CA

About Marsha

Happy Valentines day! There are lots of things and people we LOVE. I like to focus on those good feelings, and music that uplifts and enriches. We are really working on our OWN music compositions this month.

Goals: Since I am also a Life Coach, we really focus on how to accomplish our hopes and desires. We begin by weekly, then monthly and even a yearly goal.

Each week we also focus on something in my STUDENT PAL - mnemonic. Another is TECHNIQUE. Technique is the ability to have proper position, wrist-lifts and finger curve as well as Theoretic knowledge and application.

I
started giving out lickable gold stars, you know, the old-fashioned kind? They are for those students who mark their lesson sheet and come prepared... They really seem to enjoy that, and I adore the nostalgia!

It is a great week when students are nearly all prepared and ready for their lessons. This makes both Coach and student more effective and the time together more enjoyable.

Perhaps you are reading this with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for your or your student can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy which can assist you make an informed decision. If we are a good fit, lessons and learning progress more joyfully.

I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven. I have since taught the students of former students! How fun is that?

Music has blessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Teaching at the Young Artists Conservatory of Music; Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years has been a delight.

I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest and most intelligent people around. Each of my students have their own individual goals and reasons for taking music lessons, which we revisit monthly. I believe that my role is to be a support and tool for them/you to accomplish the goals set, working with music that delights and educates.

You want the best teacher, who offers information, example, practice and performance opportunities and then gets out of the way of the student's own "voice" (whether playing or singing) so that they can be free to create their own style.

*** Lesson Details ***
In our lessons, we work with a predictable schedule of balance. We have weekly exercises to make strong fingers and or voices, and technique and theory practice to hone skills that will improve our performances, whether they are for others or for our own benefit. Each student of piano can learn how to create and write their own music in time, choose their own pieces to work on, and have a say in their classical and performance goals.

We have a program of advancement, so you and your loved ones can visually see your progress and measure your skills, complete with awards and trophies.

What you learn, has everything to do with your commitment. Practice doesn't make perfect, Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.

Learning the piano ought to be a JOY. I believe in playing the piano, not 'practicing' it. Enjoy what you do, and you'll do it longer and with celebration instead of duty.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano - upright; CD player; Music stands; Dozens of music books and lesson materials; flash cards; computer and music writing program; mic and mirror, syllabus.

*** Travel Equipment ***
No travel.

*** Specialties ***
Over the years I have dabbled in most methods, but finally come to use my own syllabus and musicianship. I can easily adapt to your favourite if that is your desire. I specialize in a total music education, not merely in learning notes. It is like looking in a mirror and only seeing eyes and skin. Music has many facets and we discover all of them.

Laura R.

Rescue, CA

About Laura

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in Secondary Science Education-Biology. I am certified in the state of Florida. The first lesson will consist of diagnostics so that I can better tailor my teaching to your child. For my reading students I assist with phonics and comprehension. I use high interest text selections to ensure that the child will actually enjoy what they are reading, in addition to improving their skills. Students who require math instruction, I like to revisit prerequisites. I find that mistakes are made in the lower levels of math, which
makes learning math at the higher levels more difficult. If children need science instruction, I can help with re-teaching the material and clarifying any confusing or complicated concepts to ensure the material is clear and easily understood. My methods for language arts and history are similar to science.

This is the first time I take on learning Korean. I searched for a lot of information trying to find instructors in my area and online. I came across take lessons online and was still unsure weather to sign up or not. So, they had profiles on the instructors that were available to teach. All these instructors have wonderful qualifications but my concern was finding an instructor that was available on my one day off. Very grateful that Mr. Seongmo was available and accepted me as his student. Korean is different from other other languages that I have taken. Mr. Seongmo is very patient with me, very encouraging and challenges me at the same time. If you are thinking of learning Korean, I recommend Mr. Seongmo!

Seongmo is an excellent instructor and very patient. He is very willing to work with my busy ever changing schedule and my sometimes distracted participation. He will explain things until you get it and is eager to plunge you into a challenge without your even noticing that he has upped the ante.
My only suggestion is drilling in vocabulary but as we've only done a few lessons that might be something he is planning to use for later.
I'd definitely recommend him and plan on sticking with his tutorage.
