My piano teaching experience covers over 3 decades. (Yikes!) My students have won competitions, I judge competitions, have taught many children, some with autism and other LDs. Have a teaching channel on-line, that shows the proof of the work I do with my students. If you follow my micro-management and practice directions, you will succeed in your goals!!

About Stephanie
I am a career musician, and conservatory trained violin, piano and vocal instructor with over 40 years teaching experience, and a resume spanning many pages. I also am a well endorsed composer and public speaker. Furthermore, I LOVE teaching! I am a competition judge, member of National Music Teachers Association, and Suzuki Association of the Americas. I have proven results, as documented on my students YouTube channel. With my instruction, you will learn quickly and most importantly, correctly, saving you time and resources as you reach your musical goals. Fact: One of the only activities that activates, stimulates, and uses the entire brain is music, so let's get started!

Some people have difficulty reaching a teachers' studio. For this reason, I have perfected my ability to teach via Skype or FaceTime. It is an advantage f
or my students to be instructed by a quality teacher. It's worth a try, isn't it?

Please note: I only accept weekly lesson students. Also, due to my performances, I'm not always able to this calendar up to date....so when you request a lesson time, allow me to communicate with you, if we need to adjust it a bit. It almost always works out if you don't mind doing that.

*** Lesson Details ***
All the students on my Student YouTube channel who have studied under three years, are practicing 2 hours a week, and you will have a similar result. That's 20 minutes a day, 6 days a week. Students under 5 practice about 5-10 minutes a day.

Please have an assignment book that lies flat, and keep it next to your music books as you practice between lessons. My instructions are very detailed to insure your best progress.

Studio Equipment
For on-line lessons, you will need a quiet place, and please test your sound and video prior to beginning of lesson. For students under 13 or so, do have a parent or caregiver taking notes while we work together.

Specialties
I have much experience with various learning styles, and in fact, am featured in a documentary made of one of my autistic students.

Students will work towards learning music by the great classical composers such as Mozart, Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Kabalevsky, Schubert, Grieg and many more! In addition to classical studies, we will visit other genres of music including Jazz, Blues, Folk, Pop, etc. However, creating a classical foundation is fundamental and essential to developing proper technique and artistry.

About Ruth
I have been teaching private piano lessons for 11 years, beginning in 2006. I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and Music from Millikin University where I studied vocal performance, piano, and music education. I am also a professional vocalist and perform at local churches. I look forward to working with you and sharing the joys of music!

Shortly after my 37th birthday, I decided I wanted to learn to play piano. Although I hadn't touched a musical instrument in over 20 years and forgotten a vast majority of what I had learned as a child, Ruth was there to coach me through the process. She's incredibly knowledgeable about music, shown flexibility when I've had scheduling conflicts, and genuinely cares about my progress. She's been instrumental (pun intended!) in my musical journey and I can't say enough great things about her. Thank you, Ruth!

My lessons are personalized to each student, with a general musical education in mind. Students not only learn how to play a wide and diverse repertoire, but they also learn theory and ear training as a way to better understand the music they play, and the music they hear.

I have been teaching privately for over 10 years, and also teach at a local university; I have taught students of all ages, all levels and from all backgrounds.

I can help prepare for auditions, pass Certificate of Merit exams (with MTAC), enroll in SYMF, and much more.

About Andree-Ann
Hello!
Welcome to my profile - I can't wait to start working with you!

I have been teaching piano and general music topics for over 10 years, and I am currently on the faculty at California State University Los Angeles - needless to say, I've seen students from all ages, all backgrounds and all levels. Lucky for me, they all one thing in common: a strong desire to learn music, and an open mind!

Some of my younger students have gone on to audition for arts high school in the greater LA area, and I've also helped a few prepare for college auditions. I've also been working with several students to prepare Certificate of Merit exams (in California) and I have been affiliated with the Southwestern Youth Music Festival as well. Other little ones were quite content learning how to play their favorite Christmas song or impress their fri
ends at their school's talent show.

I have also taught adults, who used to play and decided to pick it up again - or newbies wanting to discover the wonders of jazz standards.

In short, whatever your personal goal is, I can help you achieve it and hopefully inspire you to set a new goal to achieve right after that!

I can also help with music theory entrance exams, tutor for AP music classes or college classes, etc.

*Quick note on online lessons:
Many prospective students are wary of online lessons and not sure if it's the right way to go for them - I always tell them that you'll never know until you try it for sure! I have taken online lessons myself in the past and loved the experience. I can also attest that several students get a much deeper musical understanding this way, because teachers can't just play an example and have the student copy it - the teacher actually needs to explain how to perform the passage, which leads to the student understanding clearly what is expected and how to achieve it, rather than just copy someone's hand movements without understanding why they are doing it in this particular way. I'm sure you'll also be more relaxed in the comfort of your own environment, at your own scheduled time!

Professional Bio:

Canada-born pianist Andree-Ann has performed extensively across North America and Europe; her work has been heralded as “…Gorgeous, gritty, powerful, and traditional, all in one package” (The Music Farmer).

Specializing in familiarly-danceable yet traditionally-influenced Latin Classical music, Andree-Ann has found a calling for her art on the Left Coast, an ideal melting pot for blending cultures and musical styles. Aside from being recognized as a semi-finalist for the American Prize and nominated at the Utah Music Awards, Andree-Ann’s first album, Cervantes, Lecuona & Nazareth earned the Global Music Awards’ Silver Medal for Outstanding Achievement. Most recently, her Summer 2016 release, Milhaud & Ginastera, blended French, Canadian, Brazilian, Argentinean, and American musical traditions – perfectly timed with the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. This album has also been recognized at the Global Music Awards in September 2016.

With keen interest in developing her uniquely diverse repertoire, Andree-Ann regularly performs as a soloist, chamber music (in a piano-percussion duo), jazz pianist, and accompanist in the Los Angeles area. Her training includes a Master of Music degree in Afro-Latin music from California State University Los Angeles, and she is currently pursuing a Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Claremont Graduate University. Prior to relocating to Southern California, she graduated with honors from Humber College in Toronto, Canada.

Cervantes, Lecuona & Nazareth has been featured as “New & Noteworthy” on iTunes Canada, and may be heard on KXLU 88.9 FM. Andree-Ann’s music is also available on Amazon, CD Baby, CD Universe, and Arkivmusic.

Andree-Ann does a great job relating to your comfort level and adjusting her technique in teaching to keep you engaged and constantly learning. She understands that an individual will play great while practicing alone but then freeze up a little when you have an audience watching you play. lol She is easy to talk to and explain what you are struggling in. She will push you of you want pushed and relax if you need a little more time. I would highly recommend her for any level of artist.

A great teacher who can adapt to all levels. I was worried about the quality of online lessons since it was something I've never tried before, but was astounded by how productive it has been. Andree-Ann is very attentative, knowledgeable, and relatable. She explains things in a way that breaks complex things down into something easier to understand. And she is observant! Even on skype she can catch incorrect fingering, and doesn't let you get away with bad habits. She's brilliant and a great teacher.

I have known Gary for a while now, but only recently started taking lessons with him. He is very helpful and professional for every lesson. He answers all my questions and has suggested materials for me to practice in order to improve my playing. I have already learned a lot from the few lessons we have had. I enjoy our lessons and look forward to our next one!

About Darren
Hi there!

My name is Darren, and I am part of the YellowJackets A Cappella at the University of Rochester (professional collegiate a cappella group).
Aside from my piano and music theory skills, I am a classically trained singer (Eastman School of Music) who performs all kinds of music: jazz, pop, musicals...

Teaching is only half of the process - the student will have to work on their own in order to improve their craft. That said, I will be glad to assist you in that process.

Sincerely,

Darren Huang

Hi there! My name is Joseph. I am a lifelong learner and have been a teacher for most of my life, too! I have been teaching piano lessons since I was a teenager, and for several years I also taught high school and middle school music in the classroom. I am classically trained but I play jazz, and rock, and I make my own music as well. My favorite part of teaching is discovering how each new student brings an entirely different set of skills, motivations and personality to the table, and figuring out how to best help you meet your goals.

About Joseph
Hello! So you want to be a better musician... that's awesome! Music has brightened my life in so many ways. I am so grateful for the teachers I have had, so happy I chose to be a musician, and so eager to help you on your way.

I started piano lessons when my dad forced me to, years ago... and, it stuck! Through diligent practice, in high school I won first place for my state in Music Teachers National Association competition. I studied with Andrey Ponochevney, George Lopez and Sima Kustanovich, and went on after college work as a classroom music teacher and freelance musician.

There are many directions to take in music, and I have explored quite a few:
Freelance jazz musician, playing at restaurants, receptions and special events
Teacher of music theory in the classroom
Choir director, middle school and high school
Church music direc
tor
I also play accordion and harmonica in an Irish Folk band... see, the possibilities are endless!

I love getting to know the varied abilities of each of my students, whether they are just starting out or whether they are working on polishing Prokofiev sonatas. I hope to work with you, too! Contact me and let me help you achieve your musical goals

I am a highly experienced teacher, with over 15 years experience teaching piano, voice & clarinet. I am also a professional musician, who has performed in numerous bands, jazz ensembles, & choirs. I am currently the accompanist for the local school, as well as a worship leader at a church of 1500+.

Music is fun, and piano lessons should be too! Piano lessons with me are fun an engaging, as I am able to adapt & vary my teaching style to the individual. This keeps things interesting, and excited learners become active participants in learning the fundamentals of music theory, ear training & musicianship.

I also spend a lot of time teaching and reinforcing good practice methods, since it is at home where the true magic happens.

About Rachel
Everyone wants to get better, but it is tough to know where to start. I have helped hundreds of students learn to play and sing better than they ever thought they could!

I was a vocal performance/piano & clarinet major in college, and I have been teaching private music lessons for over 15 years. I work as an accompanist, and a worship leader at a church or 1500+. I have performed with a variety of wind ensembles, jazz ensembles, choirs, chamber choirs, and orchestras, both as an ensemble member and soloist. I love musical theater, and have performed in a number of musicals and community productions. I have also performed in several bands in the the northeastern US.
