The piano has always been my greatest passion; I have never been able to imagine life without it. I was very fortunate to have had the benefit of a great education in music starting at an early age. My goal as pianist and teacher is to pass on the wisdom of my own teachers, as well as my enthusiasm for this great instrument and the rich repertoire of music written for it. I received a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Southern California, where I was a student of Daniel Pollack for 12 years. In order to become the best teacher possible, I minored in Music Education, gaining experience in the major theories of music pedagogy and teaching techniques. In teaching, I strive to create an optimal blend of old and new by combining the great and time-honored traditions

Piano is a great instrument for all ages, and is a good starting place for any musical journey!
I received my education at the University of Wisconsin, majoring in Jazz Guitar. I've studied with some of the best guitarists in the Midwest, and have performed live and in recording studios all across the country in a variety of styles (Rock, Metal, Bluegrass, Jazz, Classical, Country). I've performed internationally, and my playing has been featured on several prime time television shows. I've always had a love of music, and it’s a passion that I try to instill in all of my students! Through focus on note reading, chords, improvisation, and technique, I try to give my students tools that they can take with them throughout their musical journey, whether playing music for fun or professionally! *** Lesson Details *** I like to be laid back and very individual with my approach.

This course is for those who are new to piano. You will learn how to read music, play, and some basic music theory.
Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to his or her individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives. As a music major I developed a deeper understanding of music theory, piano, voice, and theater. I received my A.A. in Music at College of the Desert and my Bachelor of Music degree at the University of Redlands- which I attended on a music scholarship. I have played leading roles in several operas and musicals in Southern California, including Gianni Schicchi, Die Fledermaus,

Hi! My name is Jeremy. I started playing guitar at the age of 14 and by 16 I knew I wanted to play music for a living. I graduated from Azusa Pacific University with a performance degree in May, 2013. While at APU I performed with various groups including the APU Jazz Ensemble, which has won awards at the Monterey Next Generation Jazz Festival, and studied with many great teachers. Some of my favorite guitarists are: Oz Noy, Django Reinhardt, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Jim Hall, and Steve Lukather. Playing music has taught me to be open-minded and I love (or appreciate) all styles of music. My favorite artist is D'angelo. I am currently a working musician with guitar as my primary instrument. I have been very fortunate to perform with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Martha Reeves, and ...
