About Kevin
I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance.

I have taught private lessons for several years now and I love every moment with my students! I have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Above all, making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't yell at students for messing up or anything like that. I usually have an agenda b
ut am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I like Alfred's piano courses, but will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you want to pursue, you will be successful. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing in other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

***CANCELLATION POLICY***
I kindly ask for 24 hour notice whenever possible if a lesson is going to be missed. Generally speaking, if I don't hear from a student and their lesson time passes I will mark the lesson as missed, but I am also usually more than willing to make up the lesson at a later time.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

About Fawn
"Make one stop at the music shop!"
Fawn is not your typical music coach. As a recent Billboard hit recording artist & coaching 21 years, Fawn immediately gets to your goals & together you reach them. What you learn becomes part of you & that's the key to success. Whether you're beginner, advanced, special needs, have a short term issue, long term issue or even damaged vocal chords, whatever your situation, Fawn can handle it all successfully :) Not just in voice, but also in any difficult musical area including songwriting, performance, recording, piano & more.

In Los Angeles, Fawn is the music and entertainment industry's coach known as the one who "gets the job done." Clients have included Grammy and Oscar winners as well as vocalists and actors from The Voice, American Idol, Disney, America's Got Talent, Nickelodeon, X-Factor an
d many others. She has been producing music and vocals in the recording studio, coaching voice, piano, songwriting, rap writing, performance, studio, jazz, blues, classical, pop and artist development for the past 20 years. She was operatically trained by Juilliard instructor Sylvia Bagley, trained as a jazz singer at world re-known Berklee College of Music, where she won several songwriting awards, and was R & B/Pop trained by Vocal Coach To The Stars, Seth Riggs. In 2010 she had a #6 Billboard hit dance song, which she wrote and sang and 2 top 10 hits in 2016. She has written, recorded and performed songs in several different languages for a variety of films, television shows, and commercials such as Nickelodeon's Hollywood Heights, The Natalee Holloway Story, Spike Lee Productions, Barbie, Ponds, Target, Ford, Mazda, Pontiac, The Guiding Light, The Young and The Restless. MTV and several others. Fawn has also sung, written and played in many different styles from Jazz/Blues to Classical to Pop to children's to Opera.

Fawn is a very fun, yet honest and straight-forward coach. She loves working with adults and children, and considers lessons a 'team effort to reach her students' goals. Being that music and the entertainment business are her career and life, she is current and relevant, yet has plenty of old school training to be well rounded and help students build a strong foundation. Music and the entertainment business are her life, and she loves helping people reach their goals and meet their dreams. She has released 5 albums, several singles, won numerous awards and worked with such talents as Grammy winners Lalah Hathaway and Paula Cole, Meredith Brooks, Vampire Diaries Kat Grahm, BT, Jeff Goldblum, Right Said Fred, Ed Townsend, QD3, Club Nuveau's Val Watson, Robbie Benson and shared the stage with Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan, Carol Channing, Kevin Sorbo, Pink, Joss Stone, David Guetta, Katy Perry, Moby, Dionne Warwick, James Torme', David Foster, Thelma Houston, David Pomeranz, War and countless others. She has also worked with Kevin Costner, Alexandra Paul, David Marshall Grant, Florence Henderson, Jay Leno, Hulk Hogan, Darryl Hannah, Tommy Lee, Martin Lawrence, Magic Johnson, Pamela Anderson, Jermaine Dupri, Rae Dawn Chong, Eva Longoria, Joan Rivers, Erik Estrada, John Amos, and others appearing with them in film, TV and benefits for worthy causes.

Over the years, Fawn has been known to bring students into her inner circle, so they can gain more experience and exposure, taking them to red carpets, events and even putting them up onstage to perform. She remembers having piano, voice and songwriting coaches, and being frustrated in voice because instructors were not addressing issues that needed to be addressed. This is why she creates a positive and comfortable, safe environment so students can open up and progress quickly. Fawn moves straight to the heart of the matter and gets whatever needs work figured out, so students can move on to what their goals and dreams are. She has helped actors be able to sing parts for their TV shows, helped popular bands be able to have good stage performances and presence with precision dancing and singing and has helped vocalists find their true voice. She is able to get piano students as young as 5 to a high-level Concerto level of playing with in 3 years, completely reading the pieces on their own. The youngest person she has ever taught was 3 years old and blind. The oldest person she has ever taught so far taught was 89 years old, after suffering a stroke. She was able to help her get her voice back within 20 minutes of her first lesson. Fawn also does vocal rehabilitation, vocal therapy, and music therapy. She has worked with special needs children with Downs Syndrome, ADHD, ADD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Pit Hopkins Disease and more. As far as being a songwriter, Fawn generally writes words and music at the same time but she has also written lyrics and music separately, as well as composed instrumental pieces. Fawn trained with Pat Pattison and Grammy winning Lyricist Marty Panzer in lyric writing and she is a master at producing, recording and editing vocals, and is happy to help you with your recording projects, as she owns Terrace Recording Studios in Los Angeles, CA.

I can get them to Concerto level in 3 years, completely reading music on their own and self sufficient. I teach all of the important fundamentals for a strong foundation, but to the PERSONALITY of the person, because each of us has different styles, different points of view, different things that block us, different things that inspire us. I teach the same, important fundamentals necessary for a strong foundation, but tailor make it to each individual. I teach all styles of music.

I love working with individuals and groups who want to meet their musical dreams, achieve success in their entertainment careers and/or take their abilities and talents to a higher quality level.

Fawn is the kind of teacher who really cares about her students. She is giving of her time and doesn't stop until she solves whatever issue is going on that needs to be worked out or fixed. She is honest and I have huge respect for her and have had unbelievable growth taking lessons from her. I look forward to what the future holds and how much more I will continue to improve. I've had other private music teachers and none of them were as incredible as Fawn. She is one of a kind and your lesson experience will be as well. She tailor makes the lesson to my goals and what I actually need. Doesn't waste time on things other teachers would. I highly recommend her.

Fawn has a great way of explaining things that keep the process simple, yet effective. I had two other piano instructors before I started taking lessons from Fawn, and neither were nearly as good. Fawn is the only piano teacher I've had that kept the whole learning process fun. I was able to learn a lot from her in such a short period of time. She makes the process enjoyable and addresses blocks and helps you break through them. Because of her, I'm playing at a super high level now. Every once in awhile I will call her to come in for help on an issue right before a performance. I would definitely recommend contacting her and setting up an appointment!

Fawn is wonderful, just wonderful! Got an issue with your voice? Solved. Problem with piano? Solved. Need to tighten up your songs or studio recordings? Solved. Not only is she super great at fine tuning and making you the best you can be, she gets to the root of the issues, which in my case stemmed from my childhood. She uprooted all that, helped me walk through and heal my past so I could free up my voice. Fawn is intuitive, kind hearted, humble, open, honest and an expert at making a person the best that they can be. I love her, and you will too. Truly the best! Thank you for everything Fawn!

About Timothy
Hi, I'm Tim! From the beginning of high school to where I am now as a honors college student studying Business and Information Systems, I came to the conclusion (for myself, at least) that the most effective way of learning any subject is to teach that subject. During high school, I tutored a variety of subjects (AP math courses, AP English courses, AP science courses, AP social studies courses) while taking the courses simultaneously. In my school district of Edison, New Jersey, many high school teachers privately tutored the subjects they taught in school. Around 20+ students in my year were admitted to Ivy League schools. It was in this school district that I outperformed these high school teachers by the number of students that I tutored on a weekly basis--to a typical teacher's 4-5 students a week, I would tutor 7-8. Of over 50 stude
nts that I have tutored in the past 6 years, less than 5 did not receive an "A-" grade or higher in the course they asked me to tutor. Some of the students I tutored started out in the "F" to "C-" grade range at the beginning of the semester. Some of the students I tutored went on to get accepted at Ivy League schools. I mainly tutor high school and college students.

The most important reason for my success is that I teach students how to teach themselves. Self-studying is one of the most important skills in life--it is imperative in pursuing any education because you can't always rely on having a good instructor to teach the material. What sets good students apart from the rest of the pack is the ability to self study. Why? Because no matter the type of instructor, self-studying works independently of them. If you do not depend on your instructor to do well in class but instead use them as a supplement to your preliminary understanding, you are bound to do very well.

Teaching is very much a form of learning. Whenever I teach someone something, I learn a little more about myself, and it's a feeling that I enjoy very dearly. It's because of this feeling that the pleasure of learning is something I want to share with everyone.
