Christopher C.

Camarillo, CA

About Christopher

www.pianomancan.com

My name is Christopher, or Chris for short. I am a composer, arranger, pianist, vocalist, and private tutor. I have taught private lessons in classical and contemporary piano performance, vocal performance, guitar performance, music theory, and musicianship to local students for the past 10 years. I currently have 36 weekly students all over Ventura County. I attended CSUN'€™s school of music where I received my Bachelor'€™s of Music in Music Composition. My other experience includes teaching at 2 different music studios (Perry Music Studios and Brookyln's Conservatory of
Music), teaching Confirmation classes to teenagers at St. Jude'€™s Catholic Church, and teaching English to Japanese high school students through the Rotary Youth Exchange Program.

IMPORTANT NOTE: My availability is very limited right now due to the amount of students I have, however please don't hesitate to message me requesting specific times that are currently unavailable -- I can often shuffle things around to accommodate different scheduling needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
My philosophy when it comes to doing anything with music is that it should be fun! Whether you're practicing a piece, playing with a band, writing something new, or even learning music theory, music is primarily about enjoying yourself and the others around you.

The best way to ensure that you enjoy yourself is to learn what you want to learn and play what you want to play. In addition to a standard curriculum, I want you to tell me what kind of music you're interested in and what kind of pieces you want to play! Do you love classic rock? Do you love pop? Blues? Jazz? Folk tunes? Opera? Or maybe you're a fan of the classical masters? Whatever the case may be, my number one goal is to make sure you're having fun while you develop your new talents.

I'm comfortable teaching students as young as 7 years of age, although I can teach even younger if they are especially well-behaved.

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Blues, Jazz, Improv, Composition, Theory

My son didn't start piano lessons until he was 12 years old. Miss Ana made it so comfortable for him he has never looked back and that was 3 years ago! She is patient and will call him out when she can see he has not been practicing or working on his theory, He does not want to disappoint her and so it works! She encourages students to reach their full potential and creates an environment that is fun and enjoyable.

About Scott

I have been teaching private lessons since 1990 and am currently available to teach lessons at your home, or in my studio. I have helped students learn chords to accompany themselves when singing, learn rock, blues, and country lead guitar, and read music.

I have been playing guitar since 1968. I have enjoyed my life making music and love sharing my knowledge. I look forward to helping new students achieve their goals. My teaching style is fun, casual, and challenging.

Liana B.

Westlake Village, CA

About Liana

My name is Liana, and I am a freelance double bassist and music instructor working in the Greater Los Angeles Area. I have been playing music for nearly my entire life, starting on piano at the age of five and moving on to learn other instruments as the years progressed. I have performed with various orchestras, chamber groups, musical theater pit ensembles, jazz big bands and combos, and more. I also performed on double bass, ukulele, and as a vocalist as a member of Tenth Muse, on electric bass as a founding member of the group Polyhymnia, and have been featured on ukulele with the band Nobl
e Creatures. I currently work as a freelance bassist on various studio recording sessions and serve as the Vice President of the Board of the Westlake Village Symphony.

All lessons are incredibly flexible and are tailored to the students' needs, abilities, and goals! If you have a book you've already been working from and want to continue with, great! If you don't like working from a book at all, also great! I am by no means strict, but together we will work hard to you craft your technique to maximize your potential!

I look forward to the possibility of meeting and working with you!
