Linda C.

Campbell, CA

About Linda

I have been a public school music teacher for 30+ years. I am an optimistic, enthusiastic person, who will help you learn music reading in addition to music playing. I started on piano as a young child, and studied clarinet from elementary school through college, where I focused on french horn. I have a BA in Music Education from Humboldt State University, where I also earned my teaching credential. I have taught beginning, intermediate and advanced band and orchestra, in addition to choir and jazz band. I have been music director for over 10 middle school musicals. In my spare time I enjoy my
two dogs, going horseback riding, and reading.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very friendly, and encouraging to new students. I have a lot of patience for those who are new to the study of music. I can also be more demanding for those who have learned the basics and want to improve their playing. I am a proponent of teaching the basics of music reading and common musical terms. I can teach music through a variety of curricula, and will work with my students to choose a method that best suits their goals. I have a large music studio in my home that has a separate entrance,which is conducive to music making (with it's own bathroom). I accept students 8 years of age and older.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Has a keyboard, but no drum set

*** Travel Equipment ***
I prefer to teach in my home studio.

*** Specialties ***
I have been teaching band, orchestra & choir in public schools for 30+ years.

I didn't know what to expect. Linda was fantastic. I'm a beginner sax player and she worked with me to get my sounds correct. She has the right attitude for a teacher and I felt good after my lesson. I'm looking forward to my next lessons

I and my son come to the studio in the morning. It has lightened with ceiling skylight and the teacher already prepares for the lesson with music instrument and book stand, etc. Her personality is nice and joyful, and as she instructs my son first lesson for flute beginner fast but thoroughly, I found her the best teacher.

Marwan S.

San Jose, CA

Playing piano is fun! So should your piano lessons.

I've taught piano since I was in high school, and continued to teach as a student at Cornell University. I also taught theory classes in the Cornell Piano Society, where I also served as President for 4 years.

Why? I simply love music, piano, and sharing it with others.

About Marwan

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, I started playing piano at the age of 3, and started writing music at the age of 6.

So far I've had 5 classes with Marwan and I have to say he is GREAT!!

He has helped me improved significantly within this short period with both piano skills and theories. Marwan makes sure to understand your skill level and music knowledge in the 1st class and prepare the class based on your current skill level. I am in my late 20's and considered a beginner player, I was a little nervous in the beginning that I won't be able to learn as quickly as younger kids do and might struggle. But that thought disappeared immediately after my first 2 classes with Marwan. He understood it very well about what I wanted to learn and needed to improve at that stage. The class with him is super FUN.

I've had other instructors in the past but I always ended losing interests in playing after a while for various reasons. Because of that, in comparison I can say Marwan is very different from my past instructors and experiences, I enjoy the class very much and always look forward to the following week's class to find out what I will learn next.
He can be strict sometimes but because of that, you are always reminded what's not right with your plays.

I am very satisfied so far and HIGHLY RECOMMEND Marwan!!!
(But at the same time if he gets tooooo popular, I will be sad not to have the flexibility of getting his classes...lol)

Marwan is amazing!
He impressed me already the first minutes of the first lesson he gave my son in AP Calculus BC by asking specific questions and pin pointing where my son might need help. After that he has come prepared and focused with materials for each tutoring session.
Marwan's piano credentials speak for themselves but I want to underscore that he is really good at adjusting to the student's level and making it fun. My daughter always tells me afterwards *it is so much fun with Marwan!*.

On top of all that, Marwan is a good, kind person and a really cool guy. You could not be in better hands.

DeAnna H.

I love teaching piano! I have been teaching all levels for many years. I hold a Doctorate in Piano Performance, an Artist Diploma from the Mozarteum Academy in Austria, and a Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance. I am especially strong in teaching technique, sightreading, and repertoire. I have also had extensive Suzuki teacher training. My students do very well at competitive and non-competitive events. And they have loads of fun!

About DeAnna

Hello! I have been teaching piano since 1982 when I finished my degree in piano performance. I also have a Doctorate in Piano Performance, and have an artist diploma from the Mozarteum Academy in Salzburg, Austria. However, I think what makes me special is that I combine a friendly approach to teaching with high standards. My students do well in competitive and non-competitive events. And, they have fun!

DeAnna breaks her teaching down into segments focusing on smaller aspects, such as technique (scales and arpeggios), reading, theory, and repertoire, which I find to be pleasantly approachable in addition to giving me concrete smaller goals to work toward every week. The pieces I learn for repertoire span many historical styles, including classical, Baroque, and even some modern pieces (which are usually arrangements I've found online of songs I enjoy).

Before I started lessons with DeAnna, I had some musical skill but not to the level I wanted. One of those songs I wanted to learn to play had a section so difficult as to seem impossible every time I tried to play it. With DeAnna's help, I was able to master that song in 4 months, to the point where I can play it through on a whim, completely memorized. And even of the songs we haven't gone over, I'm confident I can handle them on my own, using the approaches DeAnna has taught me.

In addition to her skills as a teacher, DeAnna is quite personable and patient, reasonable in her expectations yet encouraging me to push myself even more, understanding when life interferes with practice, and just all-around fun to work with. I'm always looking forward to the next lesson!
