Discover piano basics with a master pianist and teacher

I've played piano since I was in second grade- it was my first love! I like reinforcing the basics so the student has a solid musical understanding that can transfer if they change instruments. If the student likes to learn pop songs, I have a method to teach them the chords and inversions.
About Barbara L.

Originally from Wisconsin, I was a music student at UW LaCrosse before coming to LA to attend Musician's Institute in Hollywood,(GIT) where I graduated with honors and was awarded a USA Custom Ibanez guitar. I remained in LA working in numerous bands spanning a wide variety of musical styles including blues, rock, country, surf, and even Persian music! With "The California Girls", an all female surf band, I opened for "The Beach Boys" , "The Safaris", "Jan and Dean", "Steppin Wolf"; toured the US playing theaters, fairs, casinos; and played overseas for the troops in Bosnia, Kosovo, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Iraq, Afghanistan, Norway, Germany, the Pacific Islands, and Diego Garcia. Most recently I was a member of the Greg London band, an impressionist with whom I performed in Leicester Square in the West End of London, at Harrah's Reno and the Las Vegas Hilton for extended runs. I fill in with "ThundHerStruck", an all female AC/DC tribute band and recently did a tour to Afghanistan with them. I also have a band called "Sierra Highway" that performs in the Antelope Valley. I have studied vocal technique extensively with Robert Edwards, renown vocal coach to the stars (Christina Aguilera, Bonnie Raitt, Sheryl Crow ) and learned to teach his method which is similar to the famous "Seth Riggs" method. I have played piano since early childhood. I look forward to helping you achieve your musical goals and tailoring your lessons specifically to your needs! *** Lesson Details *** I like to combine specific basics about music and technique with material you would really enjoy learning and performing. Each song or piece has several lessons that can be learned from it. If you enjoy the material, you are more likely to practice every day and progress! You will have opportunities to perform at a recital solo or as a part of a group. *** Studio Equipment *** Private commercial studio w/ piano, amps, mic, and seating for parents *** Specialties *** Guitar is my main thing, personally I like blues/rock.
