Overview

My name is Kristin R. and I am a music major with an emphasis in education at Cal Poly Pomona University (Senior standing). I play a variety of instruments from piano, violin, ukulele, drums and percussion to gigging around Los Angeles and being apart of various musical projects and fronting my own band where I play synth and sing lead vocals. My music project is Todavia. I am incredibly passionate about music and love to share the idea and love for it with others. I have tutored peers with theory at my university, have tutored college students with disabilities such as Autism, taught drums to middle schoolers at my former middle school, and have taught beginning and intermediate piano to kids through takelessons and Musicland in Fontana, CA. I have a strong emphasis in theory and fundamentals and will go the extra mile in teaching so that the student is not only well rounded in their desired instrument but in the general ideas in the art of music. I will design a lesson plan based on your goals as a student or parent of a student. Please feel free to message me with your questions and I will be happy to answer any and all of them.

my son asked for lessons. we started with just 10 lessons & now he's pushing me to get him to lessons! Kristin has been patient & sweet, yet understands that my son has a different way of thinking than most kids. she's adapted her teaching to his way of learning. i would absolutely suggest her for anyone in their early lessons of piano. i'll write another review when my son gets out of the beginner's level :)
