My students receive individualized lessons based on their interest and ability. They learn to read music notation, play core piano literature, learn theory, music history, and composition.
All students participate in a yearly recital and have the option of entering the NJMTA Piano Festival to be adjudicated each year.
I have a two-fold goal with each student: that she or he become an excellent musician, and that we have fun together as that happens.

My approach is different. I utilize a European style. I enjoy working with very young children (age 4) to senior citizens. Time is taken to get to know each student individually - so that I might find the best approach to develop their appreciation and understanding of music.

As a student of Mrs. Mouradian for several years, I have grown a great deal in many areas of music. It is without refrain that i would say she is one of the rare kind of music teachers that one would find anywhere. With a helpful attitude and persistent mindset, Mrs. Mouradian is able to encourage her students to become the best version of themselves in a musical sense. I am forever grateful for the skills and musical depth that I have culminated through our many years of lessons, and will continue to progress for many years to come!
Alina
Ani was my teacher for 5 years. I learned a lot from her and was accepted into the Elite Music Competition winners concert. She is a demanding teacher and requires diligence and hard work. I learned a lot from ani during my time with her and recommend anyone who wants to truly learn music to take lessons with her! She motivated, encouraged, and helped me a lot and taught me not only at a professional level but a personal level as well!! I highly recommend her for all ages and levels of piano

First and foremost, it is so important for me to get to know you and your musical interests (favorite songs, artists or bands). Once I know a little bit more about you and where your musical interests are, I help you build goals based on what you’d like to accomplish...that could be anything from “just wanting to learn something new and to have fun” to “playing my sister’s favorite song at her wedding in 3 months” or “to join an orchestra and make it my professional goal”. My style of teaching over the last 25 years incorporates technique, reading music, ear training, and improvisation. In addition to the violin, I teach viola, cello and piano/keyboard. The genres I love to teach are classical, rock, pop, jazz, film/tv music, and fiddle!

Nancy was excellent. She was no nonsense and to the point in her lessons. We never wasted time and I always left with a little more knowledge under my belt. I’ve moved out of LA and have hired other instructors but none as succinct as Nancy. I definitely got my money’s worth with Nancy. I would return to her for lessons if I returned to LA.
Tamsin
Nancy is a wonderful teacher, my teenage son began with her at the awkward age of 14, new to the violin and a requirement of his new school.
She not only got him playing, but instilled a love of music and of composition. Nancy was also incredibly supportive and encouraging as my son transitioned and has a special place in our hearts

New to LA , I found Leggy Fish Music on my second search for cello teacher. I’m so glad I did. Nancy is great teacher , working with me as some one late to music on basics as well as creative methods.
She creates new and different classes - group , and mash up with different musicians and instruments.
She seems to get the best from all her students.

"Jessie Massoudi is a GREAT singing teacher for my granddaughter, Vera. Vera, now age 10, has been taking lessons with Jessie for about a year now. Jessie has a way of working with her that is very sensitive and effective. Vera's confidence and voice have both improved a lot because of Jessie. I strongly recommend her as a teacher for children of this age, and people of any age too."

He has helped me improve my embouchure, lip slurs, and breathing for playing

"Over the past seven years, I have had three different guitar teachers. Karney is by far my favorite. The thing that really sets him apart is that he made me love playing guitar. I liked it before, but Karney actually taught me what I wanted to learn. This motivated me to practice the songs and eventually allowed me to play guitar at several weddings, both with Karney and by myself. He always goes the extra mile in my instruction by looking on his own time for cool new songs we can play. I know going into every lesson that I will have a good time and learn something new."

"Amazing Drum Teacher

Jesse is an incredible instructor and extremely friendly and knowledgeable. I have been taking drum lessons from him for just a few months and have improved incredibly since starting out knowing nothing. Very encouraging, and great at spotting aspects to improve upon.

Also, he puts together band nights with all of his students (across many different instruments) which are incredibly fun, and a great way to get practice with others.

Highly recommended!"

"Crazy but Chaz would travel all the way to the hills of Pacific Palisades from where his studio was then (Beverly Hills) to come to me. He is very energetic, passionate and has never short changed any of my lessons (sorry I'm just a type that watches the clock all the time!). In fact he would sit down with me and explain my homework in detail after the time the lesson has completed, so then I would be obliged to make him a lil something from the kitchen lol, but that is the kind of teacher you will come up with if you hire him. I was lucky I guess as I was always his last home visit student for the day. Technique-wise be careful as he is most meticulous but in a very good way. Musical phrasing was his big thing. I wish I would be able to continue lessons with him but immediate family responsibilities have kept me somewhat busy to manage any other schedule :(

The Evolution of the Piano: From the Harpsichord to the Modern Grand

Whether you are just starting out or are a more experienced pianist, you may have wondered about the evolution and history of the piano. You might be surprised to learn that although the modern piano is over 300 years old, its look and design has remained largely unchanged over the years. The History of the Piano The piano is an amazing stringed instrument that uses percussion to create a full, resonating sound. Italian harpsichord maker Bartolomeo di Francesco Cristofori (1655-1731) invente …
