Kay B.

Long Beach, CA

I've been teaching ballet for over twenty years. My ballet teacher was a Bolshi alumnai. He and his dad both danced for the Bolshi before they came to America. I teach a combination of Vaganova and my own updated style to keep my students interested in the style. I use classical music and pop to help students gain a love and appreciation for the style.

About Kay

I have been teaching Piano for 16 years now. I have taught students from age 2 1/2 - Adult. I was self-taught when I was a kid and begun taking formal lessons as a very young adult in my early twenties. I graduated from CSULB with my BA in Music with a concentration on Voice. As a Music major you spend a lot of time at the Piano. I became a member of MTAC in 2004 and a member of Sigma Alpha Iota in 1998. I have a great passion for Music and a bigger passion for the Piano and sharing the wonders of how beautiful the Piano really is.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my opinion, piano is the hardest
instrument to learn but the most rewarding. If you can play piano you can pretty much play any instrument. I believe that a piano lesson should be fun. I'm a strict teacher with a smile and a giggle. I push my students to greatness while helping them love the piano through the good times and the bad. I'm a very encouraging but honest teacher. I compliment when warranted and I assess not so good performances in an honest but encouraging manner. I always let a student know that though their performance was not their best, they can and will improve. It's always only a matter of time. I use the Schaum and Nevin series depending on the student's personality. I teach Classical and Pop Music. It's important for a student to learn the Classics just as important as it is for them to play things they like. I find the happy balance between the two. I teach Beginning to Intermediate levels. I also like to incorporate Music theory into the lessons because understanding the mechanics of Music helps make playing and creating Music much easier to accomplish. A typical lesson will start off with a hand drill warm up. We then will move on to the lesson book and repertoire. Theory will be assigned as homework. I look it over at the beginning of the lesson and discuss it and answer any questions in the last five minutes of class. Baby lessons go as followed: 15 mins. of play time and 15 mins of Music theory. I like to keep structure in my lessons but sprinkle a little joy and laughter to keep the atmosphere light. It makes for a much more attentive Piano student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to have a Piano or Keyboard of some sort. I may provide music on occasion.

*** Specialties ***
Classic and Pop

Madia is by far the very best dance instructor you could find! I have decided to hire her to teach my daughter online since we live in such a rural area. She did such an amazing job! She gave great feedback and was firm with my daughter while still being fun to work with. I would work with her again!

Sandra S.

Santa Monica, CA

ballet technic, cross the floor, barre, strength and development of muscles and placement

About Sandra

Private tutor, I have coached singers and speakers for the last 10 years internationally and worked with all kinds of voices, helping them achieve their goals, no matter if hobby singers, professional singers, recording artists or just students who wanted to work with their voice. I have a passion for teaching and want my students to have a short-cut to learning an easy and fun way without having to go 10 years of training. I am always excited to help improving the music project or the song together with a student. I was lucky to work with some of the best people in vocal coaching such as coac
hes who worked with The Voice artists as well people of other TV shows. Just recently worked with the Performing arts Academy in OC that works closely with many ongoing Superstars, major Talentagents and labels.

Nicole K.

Redondo Beach, CA

I have taken ballet classes for 20+ years. Dance is one of my passions, and ballet is my favorite style. I love the grace and beauty of the art form. I am certified with Dance Masters of America, and have taught dance for 3 years, and I am actively taking dance classes to stay in dance shape. I enjoy teaching dance and seeing students grow and improve as dancers.

About Nicole

Hello! My name is Nicole S, and I have been an elementary teacher for the past 5 years. Most of my teaching experience is with 3rd and 4th grades, and I've had some experience with 1st, 2nd, 5th and 6th grades. I also hold a Master's Degree in Education. Teaching and working with students is all I have wanted to do since I was young. Teaching is my passion, and I enjoy influencing children's lives in a positive way. It is always rewarding to work closely with a student and see his or her lightbulb go off when they suddenly "get" a concept. I enjoy using innovative teaching strategies to
adapt my teaching to the needs of the student--whether they learn visually or are a kinesthetic learner. I develop great rapport with the children I work with, and I have been told many times I am a student's favorite teacher. This profession is very rewarding, and tutoring will allow me to help a student learn and grow in their studies and see that "lightbulb" click!

Nicole is a very caring teacher. She is careful to look on a child's ability rather than challenges. She focuses on the abilities and turns the challenges into successes by using each child's gifts.

Natalie F.

Los Angeles, CA

Since 2011, I have taught ballet to children ages 3-7, and I have both taught and assisted teachers in adult classes. I focus on strengthening basic technique and placement in order to create the solid foundation critical to pursuing more advanced work. I also provide exercises (rooted in ballet as well as other forms of dance and physical conditioning) that one can do outside of lessons to help build strength and flexibility.

About Natalie

I am an actress/singer/dancer/musician from Los Angeles who is VERY passionate about the arts! I was raised in an artistic family and have studied and pursued the performing arts in some capacity my entire life, Shakespeare and musical theatre being two of my absolute favorites :)

I have acted in nearly 30 full-length stage productions, in a variety of short and feature-length films, and on network TV. I have also received vocal training in various singing styles - classical, pop, and musical theatre among them. I have been studying ballet since I was 4 and have also received training in
jazz, modern, tap, and hip hop, as well as yoga and pilates. I also play the piano and am comfortable with music theory and sight reading.
