Basic piano technique, music theory, and beginner songs taught in a low stakes, low pressure environment. Perfect for young kids and those brand new to piano. Will use the Bastien piano books (distributed via pdf at not additional cost) and some solo songs, but open to continuing in a book you already own. I believe that encouragement is the best tool!
About Monica A.

If you want to learn to LOVE performing, get in touch with me! I'm a graduate of the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts (Vocal Major), as well as the Hartt School of Music, Theatre, and Dance, where I got my BFA in Musical Theatre, and performing is truly in my blood! I believe that more than anything, music should be about having fun and making your soul happy. And I believe lessons should be fun as well! Of course we'll get into music theory, healthy & sustainable singing technique, and performance & audition prep, but it's more about finding joy in expressing yourself and giving the student ownership over their art. The same goes for my acting lessons. I will work diligently to find material that fits you personally, and then we will work it until it becomes as natural as your own thoughts. I can also help with college auditions for musical theatre programs, seeing as I auditioned for 25 college myself before deciding on Hartt. If any of the above interests you, send me a quick question and we'll work out a time that works for both of us! Have a great day!!

Monica is a treasure! My 10 year old son and I think she is fun and she helps him understand how to execute his lines. I love her upbeat attitude and her knowledge of the acting industry. She puts her all in her time with my kiddo and cares about making sure he succeeds. I am so glad we found her.

She was very nice and encouraging. She made me feel more confident in my voice and helped me project my voice better. I will definitely take more lessons with her!

My 11 yr old daughter has absolutely loved working with Monica and has shown tremendous improvement over the last few months. If you aren't sure what teacher to choose, give her a try. I think you'll like her too!
