From the moment I had my phone interview with Paul, I knew he was the right instructor for my son. We met for a trial lesson and sure enough he was exactly what we were looking for. My 12 yr. old has just excelerated in his music reading skills that I could not teach him on my own having started him on the keyboard myself since he was seven but was not successful. Paul is not afraid to stretch him and communicate to him in a way that he pleasantly receives along with weaving music history teaching continuously throughout the lesson. Right out of the gate his technique was addressed and the foundation was set up front and my son has an obvious, beautiful, step above, touch. Very grateful!

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've been wanting to learn jazz piano for years and skype lessons with Andree-Ann has made this possible. She's very knowledgeable of the subject and supportive and patient. She's been very willing to individualize lessons to incorporate instructional material and songs I'm interested in working on. From my experience I would recommend her without reservation.

Experienced concert pianist, teacher, and music director available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! Classical piano is my greatest passion. I enjoy teaching in all levels, and my work experience has included working with special needs children and teaching adults while an Adjunct Faculty member at New York University’s Steinhardt School. All students have the opportunity to perform in two annual studio recitals for free. Lessons are catered to maximizing the students interests, passions, and strengths. Simply put, my goal is to help each student become the best musician they can be.

About Erik
Pianist, music director, and vocal coach, Erik was born and raised in Eastern Washington state. He has been heard all across the northwest and beyond, in cities including Seattle, Portland, Tacoma, NYC, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Houston, and internationally in Prague and Salzburg. Erik has been a guest artist at Whitman College, Portland State University, The Kairos Chamber Music Lyceum, California State University Summer Arts, the West Seattle Symphony, and the Gig-Harbor Peninsula Symphony Orchestra. In addition to performing, Erik’s passion for teaching has led him to be an adjudicator for various festivals including the Washington Sonata-Sonatina Festival and the Washington Regional Solo and Ensemble Festival.

Erik is currently the Music Director for the National Tour of Kander and Ebb's timeless musical Cabaret. This produc
tion will be on tour until May 21st all across North America. Broadway.com's review of the opening night in Nashville praised the musicianship of the show, "Musical director Erik Flaten's musicians are impressive in their dexterity: At one moment, they are providing rich interpretations of the memorable John Kander score, while perhaps at the next they are playing denizens of the Kit Kat Klub or neighborhood thugs, wastrels and other folks of questionable repute. Flaten and his band are given their own richly deserved moments in the spotlight at the top of Act Two and the music director himself is given the well-earned final bow at the end of the curtain call.

Newly relocating to the East Coast, Erik is highly sought after for his collaborative work with both instrumentalists and vocalists. He is comfortable in all musical styles and genres, and has an extensive knowledge of music history and theory.

Students of Erik have the opportunities to perform in studio recitals and workshops.

Classical music is my life passion and I am happy to introduce to my students the best of its piano compositions in styles from Baroque to contemporary. On the example of the chosen repertoire, we learn to define, compare and analyze the structure, harmony, theory and interpretation of classical compositions. Understanding of what was beyond the notes helps my students to discover the world of classical piano in the full aspect. Under my guidence you will be excited to learn to play more classical music than you ever did!

Piano has been my main area of concentration since I was five years old, so I consider myself to be a top professional in the music field.

I really enjoy working with highly motivated students and welcome various ages and levels. I have worked both with professional musicians and beginner level music enthusiasts. As a teacher and piano soloist, I have worked in various countries including Russia, Italy, France and the United States. My international teaching experience has been showing wonderful results, and I am proud of my students winning the highest p

Newnan, GA

My own proficiency in music theory and technique drives each student's lesson that they may have a proper foundation from which expression is born. My educational philosophy does not reduce music to a mere hobby, nor does it apply rigorous standards that discourage pupils: rather, I open up students' minds to the joy of music, and its necessity in education.

As a classically trained musician, I focus on technique, theory, music history, composition, and performance in my lessons. Instructing all ages and levels, my pedagogy is grounded in artistic expression and follows the personal needs of each student. I received my Bachelors of Arts at the University of Dallas in English and Music and began teaching lessons shortly after. In addition to teaching, I dedicate my life to art, literature, poetry, and maintaining curiosity.

About Beatrice
Before I am a teacher, I am first and foremost, a performer. I believe this puts me at an advantage as a music teacher because I not only have formal training to educate, but I also have the experience of performing. I know how music involves our passions, emotions, our dreams and our fears, that all our complexities as human beings can perfectly be communicated through music. This is why I turn to performance time and time again. There is, no doubt, so much to be said on the intellectual and educational benefits of learning to play an instrument, but I don't think that is the reason many students want to learn. Rather, it amounts to being an outlet of creativity for the student.
In lessons, I try to take a balanced approach by exposing students to every aspect of music: theory, technique, expression, history, and composition. They're AL
L important in music lessons! In working towards a well-rounded music education, I encourage students to apply both rigor and patience in what I assign. Lastly, no two students are the same; everyone has different needs and goals and comes with their own unique set of traits. I diagnose accordingly and work to uncover each individuals' strengths and weaknesses.

Beatrice is an amazing instructor and guide who makes you love the music you're learning along with the history of that music. She makes you feel that you're a part of that history. She brings you along from day one on theory and technique to help you understand the emotion of the music you're playing, while emphasizing the precision necessary to bring about the beauty you want to realize. Her love of music shines through in every lesson and becomes infectious. And all this using Face Time after working all day! Yet I continually look forward to our lessons. You'll be very happy you found her.

I started taking piano in kindergarten, began placing at regional and state competitions around age 10, and went to nationals in high school for classical piano. I enjoy composing, teaching, and yes... even practicing! I graduated with a degree in theater and a minor in music. I've been teaching and playing piano professionally for almost 14 years.
Playing piano is about being creative and having fun, and believe it or not, every person is capable of learning to play this beautiful instrument. I love working with each individual student to maximize his/her success!

About Emily
Hi students!

I'm so excited you want to learn! Learning new things is one of the most fulfilling things in the world. I've been playing piano since kindergarten and have been teaching for almost 14 years (and started teaching special needs students about 6 years ago).
I've also been acting since I was 12. I earned a bachelor's of arts degree in acting (technically called Performance Studies) and have acted in many plays, musicals, films, comedy sketches, and even a couple of standup routines.

I firmly believe anyone can learn! One of the most fun things about teaching is learning each individual student's style of learning, challenges, and strengths. If you're willing to work hard and have a lot of fun, I'm the teacher for you!

I have been teaching private piano lessons to all ages (4-60+) at pretty much any level (beginner-advanced) for the past 7 years. I also began teaching musical groups 4 years ago consisting of instruments you would typically see in a rock band or big band. This year is my second year as the band director of the GA 4-H State Performing Arts Group, Clovers & Company. With my 18 years of musical experience (which began as classical training) and 10 years of music performance experience, I am able to teach my students nearly anything they want to learn.

Something that surprises my students when I first meet them is that my college education is not in music but, instead, in Psychology. I use my education to help my students find their weak points in learning and help them overcome those obstacles by looking at it from a psychological standpoint.

And before I go, if you like "normal" teachers, you came to the wrong place. I have been told by my students that I teach very differently than ...

About Daniel
First off, I am a music teacher with a degree in psychology who owns my own web development business and performs magic shows at parties and events. Can I get any weirder? Yes? Oh... Still here? Great!

At my core, I am an entertainer. I have been performing music and magic for over 10 years in front of audiences and crowds ranging from my family to nearly 10,000 random people. I started music at the age of 5 and magic at the age of 9. I do my best to make my lessons interesting and engaging. I have no problem teaching out of a book or creating a home-made learning plan for you based on what musical path you want to go down.

Do you like classical music? Make sure to come Bach every week for your next lesson! Do you like music on the radio? Don't You Worry 'Bout a Thing! Do you want to play in a band? Hold your applause until
after the lesson! Don't know what you want to do? Don't feel bad because I am still figuring that out for myself.

My piano lessons will be taught to you from my own bedroom. I have a Kawai Studio keyboard that I will hook up to a board with a microphone to give you some top quality sound. I have a single HD webcam for now but will eventually purchase another one so that I can have 2 views to swap between (myself and my hand on the piano). You might see a dog or a cat running around but don't worry, they won't scratch you! *ba dum tss*

On the side, I also help tutor Psychology and teach website development. If you are interested in any of these lessons, feel free to ask me questions!

Fun Things About Me:
- I turn 23 on May 20th, 2018.
- I play at Cartersville First Baptist Church on Sunday mornings. Usually playing Keys/Piano but get moved around to a different instrument almost every week.
- For those who like to know...I am an ambivert (a mixture of an extrovert and an introvert).
- I have an Associate's and Bachelor's Degree in Psychology with a Minor in Leadership and Organizational Communication.
- I like math. Music is basically math, so...it makes sense why I like music.
- I am a video gamer. So let's swap Steam names and have some fun outside of lessons!
