We love Glynis! Glynis has a delightful, cheerful personality. She is a very engaging teacher for our 8 year old daughter, Kate. Kate is learning a lot about the piano, playing the piano, and music theory. Glynis is prompt in getting to the lessons on time and responding to text messages. We appreciate Glynis' musical talent, teaching skills, and also that she is easy to communicate with on scheduling issues.
We have four musical kids and have had MANY music lessons and music teachers. I am credible in saying Glynis is a GREAT Music Teacher!

Cory B. Cypress, CA

About Cory

I am a classically trained performer with a Master's degree from London's Royal College of Music. I love finding each student's own learning style to tailor the experience, and I encourage my students to make their own decisions about musical expression (with plenty of guidance, of course!). In my work as a performer I have played with orchestras all over the world, from the South London Sinfonia to the Bombay Chamber Orchestra. My musical life is full of variety, and I think that the experiences I've had as a musician make me a creative and thoughtful teacher. *** Lesson Details *** I wouldn't call myself strict, but I do have high standards. I expect my students to put in the work at home, so that we can get the most out of lesson time, but I think that my expectations are ...

Cory has been teaching my 11 year old son for only five lessons in Oboe and we couldn't be more than happier! Her calm and patient demeanor works well for my son. Cory is very knowledgeable and instructs my son without making it too overwhelming for him. Few weeks back, we had some company over and our son wanted to play a short piece for our guests. Everyone was so surprised that he only had two lessons and could play a melody (completely Cory's doing)! We feel lucky to have found a great instructor!

About Nathan

I have been involved with music since I was a child and it has been a blessing to be a part of such an awesome art form since day 1. I can get you started on reaching the next level immediately if you take courses with me. Being through many great teachers and programs myself i can assure you I know how to inspire talent within eager students in any age group. *** Lesson Details *** I plan to mold my teaching curriculum around you! Every student/musician is different and with patient, yet productive and precise determination. I will get you where you need to be (possibly faster than you thought possible,) Within a few months you will be fluent in reading and the ins and outs of all the notes of the instrument as well as reading and music in general. *** Studio Equipment *** ...

I've been a music teacher for twelve years, and make a living as a professional Bass player- even took piano classes when I got my music degree. Nathan in Downey CA was completely awesome during our piano lessons. I had this ridiculous assumption that I had to always start chromatic and major diatonic scales on piano always on my first finger of either hand- which is apparently not at all actually necessary. Crazy, because that was the biggest blockade to me playing piano for the last 8 years and Nathan blew that ridiculous concept out of my mind. The smallest things that I get in the habit of and somehow that one thing got stuck in my head as the only way to do things. I feel bad for not signing up for lessons, like... 10 years ago. I practiced my scales for about two hours, and they're possibly the most boring thing to play- even for a musician. I feel like they've got some new life breathed into them.
Definitely get a lesson or two with Nathan on that expensive piano you've got sitting around. it's good to note that he explained everything really clearly and the web connection and clarity was great. I could see him being awesome for a young bass guitar student too, as he mentioned he also plays bass.

Marc L. Long Beach, CA

About Marc

Marc is a graduate of UC Berkeley, and recently completed his Master of Music in Piano Performance at Cal State Long Beach. He has been teaching piano students for the past seven years and has worked as a rehearsal pianist and accompanist. He specializes in classical piano, but also has experience in musical theater and jazz ensembles, and has performed on period instruments (harpsichord and fortepiano). *** Lesson Details *** Students of all ages are welcome, and will find Marc to be as laid back an instructor as the student's drive will allow for. Those aspiring to become accomplished pianists will be given a strict regiment of exercises to work with, while those for whom music is more of a hobby can expect a more laid back lesson; he's always up for discussing the history and ...

Patience, Patient, professional, helpful, positive

He has a lot of confidence in his student. His mannerism is very calm especially when you make a mistake. He is very positive and always say you can do it even when I mess up so when I get home and practice, I say oh yes, I can do it. Thanks Marc
