About Anja W.

About me: Based in LA, I'm a professional musician with a dynamic sound. I balance work as a professional instrumentalist, solo artist, and teacher. I can teach you whatever you'd like to learn on your instrument! Jazz, rock, blues, soul, pop, latin, and more. About my teaching background: I've been teaching for almost a decade and I love helping my students learn. I studied classical piano from the age of 7 through college and later fell in love with the guitar. Along the way I studied voice and picked up the ukulele! I also learned different methods and approaches to music education. These include but are not limited to the Kodály Method, the Orff-Schulwerk approach, Dalcroze Eurhythmics, and Gordon Music Learning Theory. About my musical background: As a guitarist, my earliest influences were blues and rock musicians such as B.B. King, Buddy Guy, and Jimi Hendrix. Later, I fell in love with jazz as well. I studied guitar in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with Mark Koch (Pat Martino) and R.J. Zimmerman (Aaron Shearer). In college, I studied piano under the mentorship of Lois Svard (DMA, Peabody Institute). I am an avid performer as well as an educator. What our lessons will be like: I am passionate about teaching. We'll work on reaching YOUR goals and playing the music YOU want to play. I'll help you build a strong foundation for all things musical - theory, technique, song repertoire, etc. But we'll do it in a way that's tied to actually making music and experiencing music. We'll learn by doing, and we'll play as much as we talk - if not more! For more information, feel free to check out my videos on this website or message me with questions!

My name is Jim Sheets from Pittsburgh Pa. I have been taking lessons with Anja for the past 4 years. Being a senior citizen and with a lot of bad starts with teachers, i finally found a great teacher in Anja wade I was ready to give up with guitar all together when I decided to try one more time. Anja is very patient with me and she is a great listener. Anja has a gift in teaching and she had brought me further than any other teacher . I am now learning the songs I love for the last 50 years thanks to my teacher Anja Wade . If you are stuck in a rut with no directions to go . Anja is the right choice for you Let Anja custom tailor a lesson plan for built with you in mind . Even if you have failed,and people have told you you can’t play .Anja will open many new doors for you in the songs you you want to learn . I highly recommend Anja wade as the teacher for you . Your on your way to a new beginning in the music world , and Anja will be with you each step of the way sincerely Jim Sheets

Anja is a wonderfully responsive teacher. Nyah’s perfect match! When a teen describes a lesson as “fun” then know you found the right instructor.
