Long Beach, CA

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

Samantha S.

Long Beach, CA

About Samantha

I have been a dance, gymnastics and tumbling/acrobatics coach for over 12 years. I was competitive in both artistic and rhythmic gymnastics soaring into the National level competitive circuit in both. My coaching specialty is floor and tricks, however, I am equally skilled and prepared to teach any other apparatus as well as rhythmic gymnastics. In addition to my experience as a gymnast I also have over 12 years experience in teaching various forms of dance. As a former professional ballet dancer for Southwest Ballet Company in Pittsburgh, PA I have worked with many talented and wonderful
teachers and bring their wisdom, discipline and teaching methods to my coaching style.

I am confident in teaching all ages and skill levels of students and have worked with toddlers through adults. I hold a Certification in Early Childhood Education and a Masters Degree in Business. My MBA has helped me to create solid lesson plans and manage and sustain my own teaching business.

I work with each individual students needs to help them achieve what they want to learn, whether it is a specific skill, choreography, strength, or to just improve overall. I can construct a safe, progressive plan to help the student achieve their goal.

My philosophy is simple; to teach students through safe, progressive movements that will build strength, increase flexibility, build confidence and help them to reach their goal with great success.

*** Lesson Details ***
First lesson is typically an evaluation of your skill set, what you want to accomplish and how long it may take to get you there. Each lesson we will focus on your goals as well as focus on improving overall flexibility, strength and technique. It is not enough to just master one specific skill, to get there it takes an overall improvement of your abilities, this will help to make you the best you can be at your chosen discipline.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have access to several studios for dance, or for tumbling. Panel mats can be used for all types of tumbling and acrobatics. Dance floors, mirrors, and stereo systems are available at each studio I utilize for all of your dance needs.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can bring panel mats with me to your location, and portable stereo equipment.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in ballet, acrobatics, gymnastics, and jazz dance for all ages and skill levels. I work in progressions and look forward to taking your skills to the next level safely and with great technique.

Tanya has a special gift for teaching dance. She really understands all of the elements that go into a properly executed dance move, and more importantly, she really knows how to explain those elements in an approachable manner. I will definitely be purchasing additional lessons with Tanya.

I started my dance training at Lula Washington Dance Theater in Los Angeles at the age of 5 and danced until college. 2 years ago, I realized my knack and p
assion for mentoring and teaching and decided to continue on this journey and make it a lifelong career. My teaching style is all about making dance enjoyable and fun for my students.
