About Liz Fanora J.

After graduating California Institute of the Arts with a multi-focus on several aspects of music including African dance, Indonesian gamelan, songwriting, recording, classical voice and piano, folk guitar, and more, Liz had the excellent opportunity to teach theater to a local musical theater summer youth program. All summer, she taught class sizes ranging from 10 to 26 students of the ages 5-10. Her initiative later led to being hired at this local community theater. Along with this theater teaching experience, she has been teaching piano, guitar, ukulele, flute & voice lessons for over 10 years. Her students have gone from knowing nothing about music to learning and performing entire pieces on their own as well as even auditioning & for agents and becoming signed artists in Los Angeles. Liz knows that it is her place in the world to teach music & spread positivity through her own music and would love nothing more than make learning music a positive and fun experience for everyone. *** Lesson Details *** I teach out of the Alfred's Piano course, Shaum Piano Course, & Faber Piano Course as well as the Alfred's Ukulele & Guitar Courses & Hal Leonard Ukulele & Guitar Methods. I am also open to trying out any music books you may already have in your home. I do expect my students to purchase the books they would like to learn out of and to have the material I have given them for homework ready, completed, and practiced by the time we have our weekly lesson. I recommend at least twenty to thirty minutes of practice every day, and will give rewards for having practiced well, and for performing well in our lessons. I would love it for my students to be clear on what they would like to learn, and I love using songs that my students enjoy to make their music learning process the most fun! ***Rates**** $120 per hour lesson | $100 per 45min lesson | $80 per 30min lesson *A travel fee may be added for house calls. **All lessons will be online until it is safe to resume normal in-person activities. *** Studio Equipment *** In my home studio, I have a full size Cable-Nelson upright piano, as well as 5 ukuleles: 1 acoustic soprano*, 1 waterproof soprano, 2 acoustic electrics & 1 acoustic tenor, and three guitars (one acoustic 3/4 size guitar*, one acoustic-electric and one electric) as well as an electric bass guitar & acoustic mandolin & mini drum set & cajon, as well as several percussive and wind instruments. *Some Instruments now available for rent! Inquire for details. *** Travel Equipment *** When I travel, I bring my own instrument on so that I can demonstrate, and play along with the student, as well as a music stand if necessary. *** Specialties *** Pop, folk, alternative, opera, musical theater, classical, rock, reggae, and 80's!

My 8 year old son LOVED his first singing lesson with Liz! He was sad when it was over because he was having so much fun!
