I have an easy style and like my students to enjoy their lessons.

About Cory

So you want to play an instrument? Well I have taught for over 40 years and have developed special programs for you on piano, guitar, bass, voice and other instruments for you to learn. From easy beginner to the most advanced, I will help you to learn the songs you love! Whether we use the most modern technology in my professional recording studio or just some chords or perhaps learning to sight read something for a talent show, I can take you all the way to the highest performance level. Your goals are my goals.
I have studied with some of the most famous teachers in the world, includi
ng Charlie Parker's pianist Walter Bishop Jr. and Dizzy Gillespie's musical director Mike Longo, among many others.
I also have the experience of over 400 gigs a year to bring to your lesson. I have performed on piano, guitar and bass and vocals with famous stars and some really great bands which will help me answer many of your questions. I am currently still working, teaching and recording all the time. I also have a professional recording studio in my home which you can take full advantage of.

*** Lesson Details ***
I want you to have fun learning and can help you with understanding and memorizing your songs.
I focus on sight-reading, ear training (like jamming and playing blues) and theory. You get to choose the areas you would like to learn.
Once we have established the basics including melody and chords, we will pick songs you want to learn to play with your friends or just by yourself. We can use music books or go on YouTube to learn your songs.
I have helped students with auditions as well as performances. After only a few lessons you will hear and see things differently than ever before.

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio comes complete with acoustic and electric keyboards, acoustic and electric guitars, electric bass and amps to play through, as well as professional microphones for recording. I use ProTools for recording which is used in every major studio around the world and it's loaded with great software for demos or mastering songs.

*** Specialties ***
I teach beginner, intermediate and advanced students.
I teach all styles of music including Classical, Jazz, and Rock/Pop/Blues.
I also teach songwriting, performing and recording in my ProTools studio.

First online lesson and my Skype was not working. Cory quickly found a workaround. He was patient and engaged. I feel motivated to do my 'homework' and am confident this student/teacher match is a good one. I look forward to many more lessons!

Mike S.

Sherman Oaks, CA

I teach how to play with soul!

About Mike

I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very enthusiastic and can teach students how to read. If they do not want to read music, they can learn to play by ear. I can also show them where to put their fingers. During piano lessons, I often accompa
ny students on guitar and suggest a scale for improvisation, so they can play the blues. During drum lessons, I often play bass so they can learn to groove.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They should have their own instrument and a music stand.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz improvisation on piano and guitar.
I also teach recreational guitar and piano for adults, including classical and blues styles.
I coach bass players and drummers in playing stylistically correct grooves for jazz, rock and latin music.

I developed a desire later in life to learn how to play jazz and blues piano. I was very fortunate to start learning from Mike. He started me out with basic blues and over time I progressed into many of the jazz standards. Because he is also an accomplished guitar player, at all his lessons, he would accompany me while I played the new piece of music I was learning. He also does this if you are learning the guitar. This was very helpful in giving me a more complete musical experience, as I also learned to hear and play with other musicians. He is an extremely patient and upbeat instructor, constantly giving me positive reinforcement. I would get a new tune to practice as I became more proficient with the previous one. Each new tune became progressively more challenging. Having taken lessons from Mike for many years, I also witnessed his teaching and developing of younger kids. He really works with them in a positive way giving them as much time as they need to turn the corner on each tune and progress forward. They seem to enjoy it and he has developed some great musicians. As part of his instruction, he gives all his students an opportunity to participate in a Jazz Band he puts together. In this Jazz Band he leads all the players in working together though a jam session. Other players may include guitarists, brass players and keyboardists, young and older. Frankly I am forever grateful to Mike for helping me create the foundation to play jazz and blues piano both alone and with a group of other musicians.

Art is the absolute BEST!

Art is a wonderful teacher!! He is enthusiastic, reliable, knowledgeable and very personable. I feel extremely fortunate to have found Art to teach my 4 year old daughter.

My daughter has been eager to start learning the piano. I needed to find someone that is able to teach at her young level and to be able to connect with her shy personality. Amazingly, Art is able to make her laugh, smile, learn and have fun all at the same time!

My daughter has fun learning and we often find her practicing on her own at the piano. Actually, she considers it playtime at the piano! She is learning simple songs after just a few lessons. She is very proud of her ability to play and is always eager to see Art so that she can learn more.

I HIGHLY recommend Art as a piano teacher. It is obvious that he loves music, this is evident in his weekly teachings. As a parent, I couldn't be happier!!! Art is setting a firm foundation for our daughter's love for music.

I purchased a gift certificate to gift piano lessons for my father. He had his first lesson with Lena today and asked that I write the review for him since he does not use the internet very much.

He said:
I really enjoyed my lesson with Lena today. She is a really patient, kind, and caring piano teacher. Her teaching style was very clear and easy to understand even though I do not have any past experience in music or playing instruments. She helped me learn the basic keys. I look forward to taking more lessons with her. I have already signed up for 4 additional lessons.
Thanks,
Matthew

I recomend all of you and your children to learn piano with Ms. Kim. She is friendly and patient teacher. I am a mom of two children they got lessons from Ms. Kim over 7 years. My older one got into NYU piano program and my younger son is still playing the piano. I wish Ms. Kim can stay in NJ and teach my son continue though.
I was very happy to had her for my children because Ms. Kim help them so much .
My daughter had bad habits from previous teachers and didn" t want to practice, but Ms. Kim corrected and rebuilt good foundation and my dauthter enjoyed to play the piano as soon as she comes back from school. I am sure Ms. Kim's warmness and humorus teaching style made my daughter kept on playing. Finally she made my daughter got into piano major in NYU.
And Ms. Kim was so patient to my son. He started piano when he was 5. My son has difficulty on focusing whatever he does. But Ms. Kim taught him very interesting way. I thought either my son or Ms. Kim would give up, but Ms. Kim made my son to enjoy plalying the piano. She has music therapy degree and used lots of fun materials and lesson plans to made my son to focus on lesson time. He is grown up now and still playing the piano. I appreciate it so much to Ms. Kim.

혹시 한국 어머니들이나 학생들이 피아노 레슨에 관심있으시다면 김선생님 정말 추천합니다. 선생님이 뉴저지 계실때 저희애들 둘이 7 년 넘게 레슨 받았는데 지금도 생각납니다. 큰딸아이는 처음엔 취미로 배우게 하려고만 했는데 선생님 덕분에 뉴욕음대까지 보내게 되었고 막내는 워낙 정신없는 어린이였는데 선생님이 인내심이 대단하셔요, 음악교육학이랑 음악치료까지 공부하신 분이라 그런지 그냥 피아노만 연습하라고 푸쉬하는게 아니라 재미있게 즐길수 있도록 끝까지 잘 가르쳐주셨어요. 레슨 시간마다 집중할수 있게끔 만드시는거 보니 믿고 잘 맡기길 잘했구나 했어요. 선생님이 강조하셨던게 있는데 학생 학부모 선생님 세박자가 잘 맞아야 한다고.. 저는 피아노 애 들 가르치면서 선생님의 중요성을 정말 절실히 알겠더라구요. 딸아이 가르칠 초기에는 다른 선생님들이 제대로 안가르쳐주고 습관들이 잘못들어서 오래 애먹었어요. 처음부터 김선생님 만났으면 고생 안했을텐데..그래도 중간부터라도 선생님 만나고 저희 딸애가 연습도 열심히 하고 피아노 재미있다고 음대가겠다고 했어서 엄마로서 너무나 감사하고 다행이고 잘되었다 생각 많이했어요. 선생님이 음악에 대해 열정도 대단하고 아이들 가르치시는거 볼때는 저도 조금만 짬이 있다면 배우고싶다라는 생각도 들었어요. 연말마다 김선생님이 애들 데리고 피아노 리싸이틀 하던때도 너무 좋았네요. 아이들 하나하나 정성들여 가르치시고 씨앗을 잘 뿌리고 가꾸셨구나 하던 생각이 납니다. 캘리포니아에서도 좋은 결실들 많이 맺으시길 바라면서
이 글 보시는 분들은 망설이지 마시구 김선생님한테 아이들 맡겨보세요^^

Ms. Kim is wonderful piano teacher. I had her for more than 5 years and got into Rutgers University for music ed/piano major. I cherish the time I was studying with Ms. Kim. She is very knowlegable for what she was teaching and so she is so patient. I was a student who just love to play the piano from time to time, not too serious about what I was going to do with music, but since I met her Ms. Kim opened my door to explore how to appreciate music and practice piano correctly. She thaught me a lot though; I got ear training, music theory and compositions which I appreciate so much and I am confident right now as music major student and soon to be a music teacher. Of course, regarding piano teaching, she is the best teacher I have ever met. Even my piano professors at college mentions that I have a good foundation. Ms. Kim made me to get into music ed/piano major and now I am walking on sunshine everyday. I just love what I am doing now as musician! Thank you Ms. Kim!

Awesome piano teacher, I strongly recomend to everyone who is interested in piano lessons!
