Kay B.

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

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.

Liz A.

North Hollywood, CA

Liz has been teaching dance since 2004. The overall goals of her lessons are to teach the fundamentals of the selected style, teach proper class etiquette, and develop personalized goal plans per student.
Liz's teaching style is very professional. She believes in hard work with a positive attitude. Her laid back and bubbly personality make each lesson a lot of fun while also giving each student a challenge.

About Liz

Liz A, born and raised outside of Chicago, IL, began dancing at the age of 7 training in Ballet, Tap, Jazz and Lyrical. She has since expanded her vocabulary to include Modern, Contemporary, Jazz Funk, and Hip Hop, to name a few. She moved to Los Angeles in '11 to continue to pursue her dance career in the entertainment industry. She has performed in many cities in and outside of the US. She has worked with various artists some of which include Beyonce, KC & the Sunshine Band, Kat Deluna, Serayah McNeil, and Chonique Sneed.
Her love for dance goes beyond performing. At the young age of 15, w
ith the eagerness to share her love for dance, Liz began teaching. To be able to share her knowledge, experience, and passion of the arts with students of all ages was an opportunity she could not pass up. She has taught in many cities throughout the US, Mexico and overseas in China. Knowing the positive impact dance had on her life, she plans to spread that same positive force with students all around the world.
