I tailor the lessons to constantly build up the student. When an aspect is accomplished well, it does not go unnoticed and when there is an element to work on, it is a patient collaboration to help build the students ability and confidence in their skill.

I have BM in Music Composition, have played piano for 14 years, and tuba for 8 years, studying both in my degree. I have played both piano and tuba in solo, accompaniment, small ensemble, and large ensemble settings, providing me with a broad range of experience in music. Although I have specific expertise that applies directly in teaching theory and music composition, it also aids in my passion of helping students truly understand what is happening as they learn to play their instrument well. From my experience, a strong emphasis in theory alongside technic and repertoire aids students in more quickly and fully absorbing the ability to play their instrument. With the combination of tailoring lessons to the student and ...

I like to watch a child's face light up when they learn something; I make it fun and bring incentives (stickers, snacks, treats, lil rewards for a job well done). I make sure to ask if they've practiced (I ask for 15+min a day). I always start with the hand position and strong posture, and then start with scales to warm fingers up. I like to work on 1-2 songs per week and then as the student progresses add more challenges. I also incorporate youtube or fun art history or interesting "stories behind the songs" too if possible. (For instance, for homework, ask your parent if you may go online and view a picture or a video of a full orchestra, or watch a waltz).

About Christiana

He has a good ear and can help quickly with transcriptions. More importantly, he also gave some practical advice.
Ami K.
My son enjoys his music lessons with Jonathan, who is infinitely patient teaching what can be a challenging instrument. My son responds well to Jonathan's instruction, and he appreciates having access to a professional performer as a teacher. Jonathan encourages my son to learn a variety of music, including both challenging classical pieces and more recognizable popular and jazz pieces, which helps to sustain his interest in the lessons.

"Ian has been teaching my grandson piano at my home for approximately 8 months. Ian is very knowledgeable and talented in his own right, and he has the ability to transmit that enthusiasm and technique while maintaining a level of professionalism which makes lessons both fun and productive.

In particular, Ian is able to keep my grandson interested and enthusiastic by encouraging suggestions for new songs, as well as my grandson's own ideas for his own music."

"What a teacher! I have known Lana for twelve years and have always been impressed with both her passion and dedication. Both my sons took piano lessons with Lana.
She has great communication skills , every lesson with Lana was educational and exciting. Besides learning technical skills my boys have developed a positive attitude to the music. Today they are college students, but they still keep playing the piano, listening to good music and attending classical music concerts. So much of this is due to Lana's influence. It's the best result I could have wished for my children's musical education."

"She showed up on time and got right to setting up, and seemed to be patient and have a good rapport with my son. I found out he knew even more than I thought about playing, like terms and play styles. He enjoyed the lesson, and is now practicing and trying to write his own music. He's really looking forward to next week which is very encouraging. So far I'm very happy I decided to sign him up for lessons."

2 Effective Techniques for Smoothing Out Your Legato

What are the best exercises for practicing legato music on the piano? Here, Helendale, CA teacher Sylvia S. offers her tips and tricks for mastering the technique... Legato… a beautiful and mysterious word that brings images of a pair of swans gracefully gliding on the placid waters of a still lake.
