Amazing !
Agnes
My 4.5 year old daughter had her first piano lesson with Jingci. I had learned how to play piano when I was a kid, so I could tell Jingci knows how to teach the basic foundation very well. She's firm yet patient and got my daughter to follow her instructions even though her attention span isn't that great at her age.

Hello! I've been playing both piano and violin for 19 years, and teaching for 13. I really enjoy cultivating a deep love for music in my students, and working with their specific strengths and weaknesses to find musical strategies that will work best for rapid, solid advancement in their musical journeys. I integrate music theory, technical exercises, ear training, and music history into lessons in order to build a strong, balanced musical foundation. Lessons are built around your personal interests--I'll listen to you, and take all your needs into consideration.

About Adrianna

Adrianna Svitak is a Classical pianist, violinist, published author and composer who spent her formative years on the West coast. At five years old, she eagerly picked up the piano and violin, and by ten she was teaching a wide range of students. Having grown up with the Suzuki method, Adrianna str

I highly recommend Adrianna Svitak as a piano teacher. When I met her, I had already been playing music professionally for about 30 years. I was mainly a jazz player, but I’d had some classical training. I told Adrianna some of the things that were challenging me technically and she picked a piece for me to work on that not only helped me in the areas I was struggling with, but one that was inspiring musically as well. She took the time to assess my abilities and then pointed things out that enhanced what I already knew in addition to immediately correcting bad habits I wasn’t aware of. I felt my playing improve very quickly after the first couple of lessons. She is a great and thoughtful musician who is generous with her knowledge.
Rui
Adrianna is very patient and knowledgable. She asked me about my needs and prepared the lesson material that best suit me before hand and ensured not a minute of our lesson was waisted!
Joyce
Adrianna teaches her students with enthusiasm and pays great attention to their needs and interest. She customizes her teaching to encourage her students to develop their musicality.

Love Kenny G/ Coltrane sound? relish the FREEDOM for self-expression in SMOOTH JAZZ? love unscripted playing (cut out music sheets dependence)? wanna have FUN learning & Improvising? need a more PATIENT teacher? Wishing to start JAMMING from day 1-3? Hire me.
My goal is to help you express YOURSELF through playing while soothing your listeners... with CONFIDENCE.

I take pride in distilling relevant music concepts and tailoring our sessions towards what you need. I'll FILTER OUT the boring theories & lack of focus that comes with learning from stereotyped "book" musicians where you could get stuck.

I have worked with 2 students (over the 3 months) who now play well in their school & church music bands. I am now teaching a 56 year old beginner as well. I enjoy seeing such remarkable difference soon after our class & have the special TEACHING ABILITY vital for you to learn well and fast.

"After looking for weeks for a vocal teacher, I came across Astrid here on TakeLessons and felt she might be a good person to try a few lessons with. I showed up the lesson to find out that she was the older sister of two of my good friends and to find out that she is the best vocal teacher I could have found! She's very patient, fun, talented, helpful, and silly, and she really makes learning to train my voice awesome! I take one 1/2 hour lesson usually once a week with her, and I've already completed two full songs with her in the few months I've been training with her!
Astrid is definitely someone I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a vocal coach, plus she has an awesome voice. Definitely going to continue lessons with her! :)"
