Having had experience in Australian Symphony Orchestras and ensembles, Peter has the passion and expertise to take you as far as you want to go

About Peter
I began piano lessons at four years of age, and was blessed to have an amazing piano teacher, who taught me for 14 years. She gave me a passion to teach others and impart to them a love for music. I have carried on that calling and taught hundreds of adults and children over the last 30 years. I am very thorough in my method and customize each lesson around the goals and dreams of each student. I incorporate theory, ear training and technical into all my lessons, regardless of the style of music they are learning. This gives my students an all-round musical education and appreciation for this wonderful gift they have in their hands.

I have experience in the professional music world as a pianist and french horn player, performing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Australian Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Sydney Sinfonia, Sydney Philharmo
nic Orchestra and Choir, as well as productions of "Cats", "Phantom of the Opera", Sesame Street, and touring all over Australia, U.S.A. and Israel. I have also been a part of the worship teams at Hillsong Church and C3 Church Australia.

I studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and also received my Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in French Horn (Teaching) and Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in Piano (Performance). So my experience not only comes from an inspiring teacher, but also from hundreds of performances on stages across the world working with the finest of musicians, singers, conductors and worship leaders.

I love music, and more so, love imparting it to others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students come away from their lessons inspired and excited about their ability to accomplish their dreams. Whether it is to play 'Phantom of the Opera' or an Adele song, Debussy's Claire De Lune or Jingle Bells, I show them how to do it and help them get there. I am very thorough, taking no short cuts, but making it fun to learn an instrument. You will be amazed at what you are playing in three to six months!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Rock, Contemporary Christian

My son has studied french horn with Peter for 2 years now, and he looks forward to lessons every week. Under his guidance I've watched my teenager excel as a musician, and I've grown to admire Peter's teaching methods. We drive halfway across town to get to there ... because HE'S WORTH IT. It's true that Peter listens to his student's goals. He has literally tailored the lessons around my sons auditions while simultaneously giving him the necessary building blocks to continue growing musically.

I'm passionate about music and have been over 19 years experience teaching the violin. I accept students from beginner to advanced levels and will help you achieve your goals whether you are wanting to learn the violin as a hobby, for school or pursue music as a career!

About Connie
I love teaching, and enjoy passing on that joy, knowledge, and experience to my students! I tailor lessons according to the student's goals, abilities, and preference in musical styles. Whether you're wanting to learn the violin to be a virtuoso or just as a personal hobby, I believe you should enjoy the learning process!

I am passionate about music and enjoy teaching aspiring students! I am active as a violin teacher, performer, chamber and studio recording musician in the greater Los Angeles area. I hold a Masters of Music Degree in Violin Performance from California State University, Long Beach and have been playing the violin since the age of four. I've enjoyed teaching private lessons for the past 18 years and have experience in teaching group and private lessons to students of all ages, coaching string orchestras and string ense
mbles. I have a broad education in music with knowledge of classical, modern, and world music, as well as advanced training in music theory which I incorporate in private lessons. I have also studied conducting, music analysis, music history, voice, and advanced piano.

*** Specialties ***
While I specialize in classical music, I help my students discover what genre of music they're passionate about learning, including classical, jazz, pop, and fiddle. Lessons include scales, technique, ear training, sight reading, music theory, solos, duets, music performance and the option to prepare for auditions and youth orchestras. I tailor the curriculum I use depending on the need of each individual student. Please contact me for up to date lesson availabilities!

***Repertoire***
Beginner to intermediate students use method books such as Essential Elements, Suzuki Method, and the Royal Conservatory of Music. For young students, I also use the Sassmannshaus Tradition, and the Violin Fun Book series. Intermediate to Advanced students learn technique using Carl Flesch scales, and studies from Shradiek, Sevcik, Mazas, and Kreutzer to name a few. Solo pieces including from composers such as Mozart, Franck, Bruch, Mendelssohn, Seitz, Bach, Handel, Beethoven and Vivaldi. I also encourage my students to explore other styles of music that interest them, such as pop, fiddling, Celtic, and movie music.

For 10 years I've been teaching violin and viola to children in Southern California, developing their skills, instilling confidence, and building their independence. Students from my studio serve as section leaders in school orchestras around the San Gabriel Valley.

About Vivian
Vivian Wang has been teaching violin and viola privately since 2001. Since coming to America in 2008, she has built up studios in San Gabriel and Diamond Bar/Chino Hills. She has also worked as a Music Specialist for the San Gabriel and Garvey School Districts, where she coached strings and taught group string lessons.

Ms. Wang also tutors music theory and musicianship, including the ABRSM and AP Music Theory curricula.

Ms. Wang uses the Suzuki method, combined with music theory and musicianship instruction where helpful, to develop complete young musicians: disciplined, se

About Michele
I have been teaching strings, piano, harp and drums since 1999. Many of my students have studied with me for years and developed a lifelong love of music. Some have gone on to be professionals.

I have been tutoring music therapy students as well as teaching music composition for seven years.

I strive to help students achieve their musical goals however I can, but I do not tolerate laziness or half-hearted attempts.

Music can be a tool and thus, summers are dedicated to fun, composition and learning to record.

Natalia makes sure to ground her students in the basics. It's not enough to just play the notes; you have to know their names and how they fit together into scales and chords. She's also endlessly patient and is always willing to make adjustments if some aspect of lessons isn't working for a particular student.

I took piano lessons with Natalia for about a year until a schedule change required me to switch to another instructor. Natalia is a compassionate, encouraging music teacher. I decided to take up the piano after many years away from music, and I couldn't have been more delighted with Natalia's encouragement and guidance in that process. Even more, at the end of every lesson, she asked whether there was anything that she could be doing better. That openness to hear questions, criticism, or constructive feedback, is really the hallmark of a good teacher. I feel very fortunate to have stumbled across her, was sad when we had to part ways, and would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to learn an instrument.

Saginaw, MI

I have been playing the violin for over 9 years now and have led first violin sectionals in my high school orchestra for four years, giving me valuable experience in guiding students through very difficult passages of music and in teaching them advanced techniques. I am able to teach basic note reading, the basics of bow holding and posture, and all other aspects of introductory violin and music. I am learning to play other instruments right now, so I know what it is like to learn a new instrument, and I know the best ways to do so. Hopefully you'll let me share my knowledge with you!

About Tyler
Hello! I am a college student looking for opportunities to help you learn! I am most able to teach music, specifically the violin, but can help in a number of academic subjects as well. I have been playing the violin for nine years, have been concertmaster/principal violin of Heritage High School's prestigious Orchestra program for two years, and have attended the statewide Solo and Ensemble festival since seventh grade, receiving "Superior" ratings every year. At the state competition my senior year, I was nominated to be a member of the Michigan Youth Arts Honors Orchestra, with an extra nomination to be one of four "Outstanding Soloists" in the entire state. Since I had been concertmaster of Heritage's orchestras, I was leading sectionals for my four years of high school, which is where my initial teaching experience comes from. Beyond
my curricular musical experience, I have composed a few orchestral pieces of my own, played as a guest soloist in multiple ensembles locally, and played in various youth and festival orchestras.

I believe in a very relaxed and comfortable teaching environment and teacher-student relationship, and I make it clear that the time that you are willing to put into learning determines how well you will learn. I make my best effort to mimic how my violin teachers taught me, as I was always excited to spend an hour of my week with an impassioned, joyful master of an art (though admittedly, I am no master!). Regardless, I am here to help and guide you in whatever way possible, but, as always, "practice makes perfect!"

Beyond my musical experience and accolades, I had a very successful academic career in high school. I graduated summa cum laude and top 20 in my class of 350 from Heritage High School, with a near 4.0 GPA. My academic merits earned me a full tuition scholarship from Saginaw Valley State University, where I currently attend. Given my academic experience and merits, I consider myself able to teach high school mathematics (Geometry and Algebra 1) and some English as well.

I hope this has been helpful and informative, and I look forward to teaching you!

I have been studying violin for over 15 years and will shortly begin graduate studies in music performance. In May 2016, I graduated from Duke University with degrees in global health, sociology, and ethics (I also earned distinction in music). I was a two-time winner of the Duke Symphony concerto competition, and I also served as the orchestra's concertmaster and president. Furthermore, I have been an official course instructor, a teaching assistant, and a writing tutor during college.

About Jenny
With a strong passion for music performance, I have been diligently studying the violin for over 15 years and have won multiple competitions and awards. I am excited to begin my graduate studies in violin performance this August at Temple University's Boyer College of Music and Dance, as the recipient of a generous Dean's Performance Grant. In the meantime, I will be attending several intensive summer festivals, including the Luby Violin Symposium, the National Orchestral Institute, and the Emerging Artist Fellowship Program at Garth Newel.

I completed my undergraduate work at Duke University in May 2016, earning degrees in global health, sociology, and ethics. Although I did not major in music at Duke, I was fortunate to have been quite involved in the music department. I studied violin with Mr. Eric Pritchard of the Ciompi Quartet fo
r four years, and I was a two-time winner of the Duke Symphony concerto competition. I also served as concertmaster and president of the Duke Symphony Orchestra, directed by Professor Harry Davidson. Upon graduating from Duke, I was awarded the Julia Wilkinson Mueller Prize for Excellence in Music, a Benenson Award in the Arts, and graduation with distinction in music. Last year, as a graduating college senior, I was honored to perform a solo for Duke University's board of trustees, including president Richard Brodhead and Apple CEO Tim Cook. Other than music, I am also extremely passionate about global health, social justice, filmmaking, writing, and education.

Jennifer is a bundle of smiling energy, always excited to teach my kids something new and worthwhile. She makes the lessons fun, never boring.

I cannot say enough about my violin teacher, Jennifer. What started out as just a refresher course turned into so much more. I hadn't played the violin since high school, and now, many years later, I have been able to dig into the part of me that really loves music, and really enjoys playing. Thank you, Jennifer, for helping me see the potential I did not know was inside me. Your patience and positive coaching are the reasons I am playing violin again!
