I am an extremely versatile piano teacher with over 30 years of experience. My Russian-based training in both piano and ballet enables me to understand and teach a relaxed, coordinated approach to the instrument. If you have technical problems or limitations, I'm a great troubleshooter! I emphasize reading, as this is the skill that makes it possible for you to enjoy playing the piano for the rest of your life. I have developed my own curriculum for students as young as four, but I enjoy helping students of all ages conquer their fear of reading. I'm a serious teacher with an irrepressible sense of humor.

One of the most enjoyable instruments to play when done correctly.

About Gregory

As a younger brother at the age of five, I began studying the piano because my older sister did. After my foundation in music strengthened I fell in love with the trumpet. At first, each note took time to develop and I enjoyed the challenge. The trumpet allowed me to travel all over the Southeas

I've had just 3 lessons with Gregory and I'm making great strides thanks to his intimate knowledge of the horn. His manner of teaching is so relaxing that it helps no feel so stressed to play. I look forward to my next lesson. He drives you in a direction that works best to the student. Hes a great teacher.
Gil
I'm 58yrs old and a comeback player. I haven't played in over 40yrs. Yesterday was my 2nd class with him. And I was amazed at how my playing is already showing progress thanks to Gregory. He puts you at ease almost immediately. He is very patient and through his instruction I've gained more confidence in my playing. Gregory gets 5 stars for his demeanor, trumpet and overall music knowledge. He is the go to instructor in my opinion.

Jaden has been such a great teacher for our son. He’s super patient and takes my sons desires into consideration. If my son says he wants to learn a specific thing then Jaden has been super obliging. He even helped show us how to clean the trumpet in the tub one day. He was able to work out coming to our home to teach and has been flexible when our schedules change.
Jamie
Jaden is a great teacher! He’s very talented and has a great way connecting with his students. He has a lot of enthusiasm about playing the trumpet that is contagious to his students.

"So rewarding!

My 14 year old daughter, Rachel, has been taking voice lessons with Nancy for almost a year. We believed that Rachel had native singing talent, but we have been amazed and delighted with how rapidly her voice has developed under Nancy's tutelage.

My spouse and I are not the only ones who are pleased... I am including here an excerpt of a social media post Rachel recently wrote: "About two years ago, my parents, my sister and I sat down on the couch to watch the TV show “X Factor”. A girl named Rachel Crow came on and sang, admittedly, beautifully -- bringing my dad to tears. In a fit of uncharacteristic jealousy, I lashed out and screamed at him for liking her singing better than mine, singing being something I enjoy immensely. I sing every chance I get! I made it my goal to sing so well one day that my dad would cry as a result. About six months ago, I started working with a singing teacher, Nancy. I progressively have gotten better and my voice is more controlled. Fast forward to tonight, during an awesome evening with some family friends. I sang "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for them, a song I had been working on with Nancy. And… I did it! My dad cried as a result of my singing! I know it sounds small, but I was incredibly excited and I needed to share it!”"

"Great Choice with Chase R.

Hiring Chase to work with my daughter is one of the best decisions I've made. He has taught her new skills in guitar instruction and by doing has given her a level of confidence that empowers and motivates her. His level of dedication to her exceeds my expectation and as a result we will continue with additional lessons. Having an instructor that appreciates my daughters enthusiasm to learn more and that teaches techniques that further her scope as a guitar player has been a rewarding experience. Thank you Chase!"

"I am currently learning music fundamentals. I'm most definitely enjoying the course as it is very engaging and so enriched with the appropriate information needed to better my knowledge of the fundamentals of music. Each session has a perfect balance of both education through lecture and through the constructive criticism provided after singing and playing the piano during the lesson."

"I have taken lessons with Mike for over 7 years, and getting into drumming has been the best thing that has happened in my life. Mike is an excellent teacher, who truly loves to teach. You feel his joy, he is never condescending, and he is never more than a couple steps away from making a silly joke.
Drums have given me a hobby to keep improving as I get older. It has given me a passion for music, both performing, and listening. It has also allowed me to have experiences I never would been able to have without learning the drums, such as playing in the Huntington Beach 4th of July Parade, winning 1st place with my high school drumline, and making lifelong friends as part of my high school's music program.
I highly encourage to take lessons with Mike. He is the best."
