*** Lesson Details ***
Learning violin will be fun and rewarding for my students.

My teaching method is from The Juilliard School of Music, lessons are specifically designed to fit individual students age, background, strength and personality. In my classes, not only students are taught how to play the violin, they are also taught ear training, sight-reading, music theory, and performance skills; Most important, students are also taught self-confidence, discipline, appreciation of the arts, and the pride that comes from a job well done.

Every year, my students have the opportunity to perform in different concert settings, participate in our annual summer concerts, take national music exams, and audition with many orchestras and music schools.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The studio lessons are taught in a quiet and comfy home music studio. The room includes a piano, violins, music stands, flat screen TV. Seating for parent/family member is also available.

*** Specialties ***
My teaching method is mainly following The Juilliard School of Music, and I also combine it with the Suzuki method, especially for younger students.

I really appreciate Lucy Lu, my violin teacher. she is what one would expect for a violin teacher specially if you're like me 68 years and no experience whatsoever with the instrument. Had I stayed in Los Angeles, I see no problem in continuing taking lessons from her because I know that sooner or later, I would learn despite my busy schedule as a tax accountant. Thank you Lucy. I will miss you.

Joseph R.

Downey, CA

About Joseph

Joseph R. has 5 years of experience teaching students elementary, middle school-aged children and adults on to how to play keyboard, guitar, flute and saxophone while sharing his learning experience with them as a self-taught saxophone and flute player and his more conventional education on piano and guitar.

Joe started developing his musical talent through piano lessons at the age of 7. After only a year of formal study, he began to experiment with other instruments such as the bamboo flute, the guitar and the drums. When he moved to the United States at the age of 13, he was introduced to
the school’s band where he chose to hone his skills with the flute. Since then, he has been exposed to classical and symphonic repertoire. During high school, he joined the marching band and at the same time, found interest in jazz and alto saxophone. He decided to pursue a career in music by majoring in Jazz Studies and Performance at the University of California in Irvine where he has received his Bachelors degree in Music. He is currently performing at local jazz clubs, formal events and concerts. He would like to continue to inspire his students while nurturing his passion.

Joe is a great instructor. He has done a fantastic job explaining concepts in an understandable way, and utilizes a lot of computer tools to help the lessons, such as backing tracks. I would definitely recommend him as a teacher.

Jessica G.

Pasadena, CA

About Jessica

I have 20 years of playing experience along with a Bachelor's degree in Cello Performance. I was the section leader of my university's orchestra as well as a full-scholarship member of the university quartet. As a professional gigging musician, I have played with Il Divo, Mario Winans, La Jolla Symphony, Doctor's Symphony, Porta Caeli Chamber Players, and the quartet La Dolce.

I am a member of MTAC (Music Teacher's Association of California) and can sign my students up for Certificate of Merit. This is a music study program with an annual evaluation and written assessment. Stand-out stu
dents will be invited to play at the Branch Recital.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons differ slightly depending on the student. In general, it starts with scales for intonation or working on vibrato, moves on to an etude or exercise, and culminates with work on a piece of music. But not every student works well with this method, so I will add in some musical worksheets and ear training games for those that require lessons with more variety.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can come to your home to teach. I will bring all necessary method books and teaching materials.

Christina E.

Pasadena, CA

About Christina

My name is Christina and I am very passionate about the vocal arts, specifically Opera. Opera was a surprise in my life that I discovered in college. It moved me to a point where I knew it was what I wanted to pursue. Though singing classically takes great patience, discipline, and perseverance, that 5 minutes on stage projecting pure vocal freedom and expression make it well worth it. The classical technique can provide a great foundation to healthy singing, which can ensure a long vocal life.
Along side opera, I believe basic knowledge in piano is extremely beneficial in improving musicali
ty and an understanding of each piece. Piano greatly improves sight reading and ones ability to learn music quickly and efficiently. It can allow one to develop an understanding of harmony and context within each unique piece of music.
I have recently started teaching and would love to help and guide those interested in music, specifically classical voice, opera, musical theater, and piano. I would love to share the great joy it brings me with others and pass down what I have learned over the years. I have completed courses in music pedagogy and education alongside my degree, and believe in shaping my lessons around each individual's learning style so that each student may continue to grow while having fun.
I graduated with high honors from the University of California Santa Barbara in 2014 with a degree in music receiving both music and academic scholarships. I have performed a wide variety of roles with the university's Opera Scenes program, private showcases, and main staged productions. I was also the featured soprano soloist with the Santa Ynez Master Chorale and Orchestra for their Spring concert.

*I will drive to you for lessons being I don't have sufficient studio space. The only requirement I have is that a piano be present for scales and learning music.
