Hello,
my name is Anna and I am a piano/ vocal/ music theory teacher. I graduated from the Rimsky Korsakov College of Music, Saint Petersburg and now I continue to educate people in the music field in California. I have big experience in working with children and adults, combing Piano and Vocal technique to develop general musicality.
Although I have a solid theoretical and performance background, my lessons are not " your childhood boring nightmare". I want my students to feel the music not as "the most difficult and useless thing I've ever learnt" but as useful, beautiful and fun life skill!
All ages and levels are welcome!

Anna is a great teacher, she showed my daughter how to improve her form, gave her some tips for warming up, and did a lot of teaching while keeping the lesson fun.

I just started piano and vocal lessons with Anna today. She is professional and really knowledgeable. I am looking forward to learning more and finding my true singing voice because she makes it fun.

"Anyone with half a brain knows that if a student is unhappy they can change teachers easily. Only a coward writes anonymous reviews out of jealousy. Since Take Lessons guarantees all lessons a person with integrity would simply work things out over the phone instead of hitting "below the belt". Some teachers have learned from the best at M.I. in Hollywood so that is telling it like it is. This is not "Name Dropping." I have known James for 15 years and have found him to be the best teacher ever, period.
Don't believe anything you read in "anonymous" reviews."

"Trevor is an amazing teacher. He is one of the best teachers I have come across for music, and I've had several. He has a near encyclopedic knowledge on almost all things music from composition to theory with a genuine interest in the material as well as teaching it. He is extremely patient, friendly, and kind of a nerd on several fronts, in the best, most awesome way possible I mean. If you want a truly comprehensive understanding of music from someone who knows what he is talking about and is fun to learn from, I'd say go with Trevor."

"Jesus has been really helpful in improving my technique and introducing me to challenging pieces. I have been playing piano for about 14 years and took a long break from working on my music. At first, I was skeptical about taking lessons again, but I decided to start roughly two months ago. Since starting lessons with Jesus, I'm playing pieces that I would have never chosen for myself on my own and tackling them even faster than I thought I could. Aside from learning new, advanced pieces, he is really helping me with my technique as a performer. Jesus fosters a welcoming environment and I genuinely look forward to my lesson each week. If you're an older student like me interested in piano, I highly recommend Jesus!"

My son is 15 and is on the Autistic spectrum, so finding someone who is patient and willing to teach a student who is not always clear with his communication could have been a real challenge. Karen has been a wonderful instructor and my son looks forward to every lesson he gets with her. His progress has been impressive and we are grateful that Karen has helped to foster the love for piano that he has now."
