Taryn L. Los Angeles, CA

About Taryn

A graduate of Berklee College of Music, I have been writing songs since I learned to sing. At a young age I began to play piano and violin, training in both the classical and pop genres. I have been teaching piano lessons since I was 15 years old, when my own teacher had taken on more students than she could handle. Over the years, I have developed a passion and dedication for teaching music. I love to watch my students grow, and am elated to see the pleasure it brings to their own lives. Music is truly the universal language, and everyone should learn to speak it, in whatever form they desire. I am adept at finding my students weaknesses, and making it their strengths. After graduating college, I relocated to Brooklyn, where I opened my own private music studio, "Taryn's ...

Julie L. Los Angeles, CA

About Julie

Trained from age five to approach the piano with excitement and love, I have studied with piano professors from all over the world at the Chopin Institute in Warsaw, Poland. I love children and am patient, creative and intuitive. If your child is wiling to put in at least twenty minutes of practicing time, 5 -6 days a week, I will be patient, fun and excited every time they come in for a lesson - always tailoring their musical experience to their individual needs. I also now have experience teaching several adult students at different beginner and intermediate levels. I'd love for you to come in to my convenient Los Feliz studio after work for a lesson, you can walk to dinner or cafe, or a stroll in Griffith and do some of, what I call 'learning away from the piano.' :) Hope ...

Julie was filling in while the primary teacher was on vacation for several weeks. Julie was pleasant and was great with my daughter, Norah, 6 years old. The lessons were where we left off with the primary teacher and Julie did a great job with it.

Thanks again Julie!

I've been taking piano lessons with Julie for a year. We play a variety of songs and exercises each week. It's helped me go from not knowing the first thing about piano to being able to read sheet music and play many songs. The lessons are always challenge me and make me want to learn more. Plus Julie's just a really nice person. I would absolutely recommend Julie as a piano teacher - she is the best!

Wonderful Teacher

I have been working with Julie for over a year now and I have nothing but great things to say about her. She is a fantastic teacher who has helped me expand my playing beyond what I thought possible. She really understands my playing goals and always gives me pieces of music that I enjoy but that continually push me forward. I feel very lucky to have her as a instructor.

I'm a 55 yr old female that hasn't taken voice lessons in the last 20+ years. From that time until recently I would just do karaoke off and on. I started taking lessons with Tanisha about seven months ago. She is the absolute best thing that has ever happened to my voice. Initially I just wanted to learn how to use my "alto" voice more effectively. I avoided singing soprano songs because it was very uncomfortable and it didn't sound right to me. But to my surprise Tanisha convinced me that I am in deed a first soprano. She started working with me on my singing with much attention on my upper range. Thanks to Tanisha, for the first time in my life I have started feeling like a real singer! She has truly taken me places vocally that I could have only dreamed of going. Even when I sing lower it sounds tons better. I practice consistently because I'm so excited about all of the progress I have made in just a seven month period. And I am just blown away that I have those high notes now! When it comes to the voice Tanisha is definitely a miracle worker! On top of that she has this bubbly personality and from the day that I met her I felt like I've been knowing her for years. She's like a new best friend!

For the past 6 months I have taken voice lessons with Tanisha. She has a very warm personality that makes you feel instantly comfortable and at ease. She is passionate about teaching and also tailors the lessons to who you are as an individual so that she can help to extract the very best out of you as a student. She is encouraging and never judgmental and meets you right where you are at. Most of all, she has abounding patience. I have seen an overall improvement in my vocal ability and can now sing in a range that I thought was impossible for me.

Patient and Caring

Our experience with Brian as piano teacher to our two children has been incredible. He has brought each of them along at their own pace and they have learned to play very well. Brian has always been patient and kind.
This has been particularly important with our (now) 8 year old son who is autistic. He can get easily distracted, frustrated, bored, or just plain ornery and uncooperative. Mr. Brian has always exhibited great patience toward him, taking breaks when necessary and generally bringing our son along at his own pace--and our son has shown remarkable progress.
We highly recommend Brian as a piano teacher.
Paul T. Inglewood, CA

Students can opt for traditional style learning using one of the popular piano methods of study to tackle the technical, theoretical knowledge, and sight readings skills necessary to become a great pianist.

Students that have already tried this approach and either found success or failure may also decide to learn with a custom tailored approach which mainly focusses on improvisation techniques, and learning by ear. Students are guided toward developing good musicianship whether choosing to focus on jazz, classical, gospel and blues, or pop and rock styles of playing.

About Paul

I am a firm believer in the power of music to heal, entertain, and teach. It is our first and most vital universal human language and as such, I believe we all have the ability to learn how to communicate beautifully with music to express our deepest feelings. As a teacher it is my privilege and pleasure to help you develop. From classical violin to jazz piano my early musical education not only spanned genres and instruments but also geographically from Austin Texas to Madison Wisconsin and finally brought me to Los Angeles where I currently reside and work teaching and playing in several bands. I embrace this diversity as I embrace my own mixed Peruvian and American cultural heritage. Helping you or your child reach your musical dreams in a friendly-nurturing environment ...
