Hi, my name is Pierre. I have enjoyed the music business for more than 30 years. My music education includes studies at the Swiss Jazz School in Switzerland and the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
I have been a music coach in Switzerland, in Los Angeles, in Long Beach, and since 2009 in the Mission Viejo area. During the 2009 / 2010 school year I was a music coach for the Saddleback Valley Unified School District (SVUSD) in South Orange County. I have also been a member of numerous groups, including Original bands, Top40, Tribute, Recording and Performing bands. Please do not hesitate to ask for references!
I teach students age 9 and up.

It is incredibly important for students to have a general understanding of music theory, regardless of their instrument. Music theory is the core of the music that we play and listen to, and it is a vital part of every student's music education. The point of music theory is to show students how music works, and for that reason, every music student should be exposed to it at some level.
Having started piano at the age of 7, I was taught music theory at a very beginning of my music education. I studied it throughout my childhood and into my collegiate years. I can teach this subject in detail and help the student develop a clear understanding of the music that they read and play.
No student and no musician can truly understand music without understanding music theory. Playing the piano without knowing the notes is like trying to read a book without knowing the letters. I teach music theory simultaneously in all of my music related classes. This class is a great choice for students who already have basic knowledge of music theory and want to improve their skills and become advanced in the subject and/or are struggling with the basics and want to improve.
As a CM (Certificate of Merit - Music Teachers' Association) teacher, I've been teaching "Music Theory" for students who want to pass Music Theory Test (which includes Ear training test) up to advanced level.
Also I received a grade A in Aural skills (Ear Training) subject, MUCO-333 and Music Theory, MUCO-300 at USC (University of Southern California) Music School.
Since I graduated from graduate school of music, USC in 2003, I've been tutoring numerous students pursuing music over 12 years.
