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

Elena V.

Los Angeles, CA

I graduated in classical ballet Cecchetti method.
I am also graduated in the method Orazio Costa (mimetic method).
I like to experience the two forms that are complementary.
The first: the grace through exercise and awareness.
The second: the freedom through organically reunited with nature.
The body speaks and means. Let's give voice together

About Desiree

I am most happy when I am creating. Dance is my first choice of escape! Working and performing with dance companies, teaching dance classes, and directing screendance projects is my primary focus. Screendance is a way for me to express my creative eye through photography, dance, design, choreography, film, performance, and editing in one craft. The purpose of my work in both choreography and screendance is to compose fresh representations of beauty and strength through linear forms and unique shapes in modern and eclectic dance styles.

Desiree is a great dance teacher. I am a beginner student with little dance experience and she has made it easy for me to learn to dance. She is very patient and good at explaining and breaking down the dance moves to make them easier to learn. She is also a great dancer so she is able to show you how the moves should look when they are done right. I have learned alot and look forward to taking more classes.

I just started taking lessons with Jose, he is an excellent teacher, his knowledge and talent for ballet are very impressive. I haven't taken dance since I was a kid (I am in my late 30's). I wanted to take ballet again because it is something I always regretted quitting. However, I was never really a dancer and feel like I have two left feet. Jose is very patient and also creates a very comfortable environment for me because I am also shy. Whether you are a complete beginner like me or an advanced dancer, I highly recommend Jose!

Jose is so knowledgable, experienced and passionate about ballet and teaching it. He really wants the best for his students and to pass on everything he has learnt over the years and this really comes through in his teaching. You feel immediately comfortable with him and he really gets the best out of every student. He makes ballet so easy to understand and I saw a massive improvement so quickly in everyones technique. Great ballet teachers who understand correct technique and save students from injury are hard to find especially on the West coast so Jose is definitely the one to hire.
