I grew up in Southern CA and played piano all my life beginning with classical studies at age 6. I moved to the east coast and obtained my music degree from NYU in 1995 and began teaching in Greenwich Village NYC in 1999. All the while I taught I continued to take lessons from some of the world's greatest musicians living in NYC. I was classically trained, but ventured into jazz and pop studies after college. I played many jazz solo gigs in New York City as well as accompanied singers, performed and sang my own material at songwriter venues, accompanied rock bands on keyboards and performed classical music in the recital galas I hosted for my students. I've played and taught all styles and have a passion for teaching and learning! I encourage students to play what they love, ...
I have over 20 years of piano experience. I was trained via the Suzuki method, but I prefer to use my own method with my students. I mostly play dark classical (Rachmoninoff meets Muse) and anything current I hear on the radio that gets stuck in my head (Popular Music).
I encourage my students to learn music theory and sight reading, but I respect that everyone has different motivations for learning piano. If your goal is to play the songs you hear on the radio by ear, I will teach you how to do that without wasting your time with sight reading.
What do Britney Spears and Beethoven have in common? They're both pop music! One just happens to be 200 years old. Berklee College of Music graduate from Boston, MA with a passion for all genres, though mainly popular music. For me, music has always been about having fun and doing what feels natural, and I try to pass this on to my students. In all seriousness, if it's not fun, why do it? I'm super laid back, but I refuse to let you spend your money, or someone else's, on lessons like it's going out of style. I believe that the more fun you have with music, the more you'll want to play, and as a result, the better a musician you will become. *** Lesson Details *** Together, we will create daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you to achieve. In this way, we can both ...
I teach from a variety of methods, using many different teaching strategies to engage students. For piano instruction, I normally use the Bastien method and incorporate other methods, such as Faber, Fletcher, and Celebrate Music. For younger beginners age 4-5, I use the Music for Little Mozarts series (Alfred). For teenage and adult beginners, I use Alfred's Group Piano Book. The method series are the building blocks that serve as a foundation. I incorporate music that the students wants to learn and find music in other books to keep things interesting.
I see my role as a teacher to be like a guide to my students, helping them to navigate their own musical path. I teach key concepts through a variety of strategies and methods so that I can reach each student in his or her strength or interest. This includes class instruction and discussion, small group discussions and projects, and individual projects and reflection. I believe that teaching the fundamentals of music are most important because the basics empower the student to learn. When students have mastered the basics, then they can go on to achieve their personal best. My classroom culture is based on respect and care for one another, which starts with me, the teacher, setting the example and modeling what that looks like for the students.I believe is setting high standards that ...
I was born in Santa Barbara, but I have lived in many states and I have also lived outside of the country. I started to play the piano at age 11, which is much older than when most children start. Once I began playing the piano I became addicted to it. Because I have moved around a lot, I had many piano teachers and learned from many different teaching styles. In college I began playing the organ and I am now the organist at St. Ann Catholic Church in Logan Heights. *** Lesson Details *** I am neither too strict nor too laid back, but just right! I have taught many students, each of whom respond differently to different teaching styles. Some students respond better to a more rigid style of teaching, where others need more flexibility. What is important to me is that my students enjoy ...
My History of Piano:
I have been teaching piano for 10 years. My 25 years of training is mostly through private lessons and passed down generational methods taught through my mentor, Joann Maybe.
My Teaching Method:
I assess each students' levels, knowledge and styles of learning, determine the best learning paths to incorporate into the lesson and bring a "natural movement" approach of training and education.
With the 3 Be3ts Method, this is to provide a collaborative & supportive environment as well as actively develop a person's life, culture and well-being. I strive to take a step further and deeper within the mind of the person who is learning and find one's "True Inner Self." This is the 3 Be3ts Method.

Thanks!** My Teaching Philosophy: "Everyone is capable of dancing, playing an instrument, and understanding music & art performance; it is the desire, drive, determination, dedication and discipline instilled within a person and the guidance of the 3 Be3ts Method that will bring these abilities to light." - Ferlyn I believe each and every person has a unique brand of movement, understanding of music, and learning style for any dance form or instrument.

A Few Reviews My time in being instructed by Steven B on piano was a great, informative experience. Ever since the first lesson, he was a very good teacher that clearly knows what he is doing. Steven B taught me at my own pace, taking time to help me work on skills, especially small details that help me perform much better. He is a very skilled instructor, teaching me pieces from not only music books that he provides, but also the valuable skill of learning by ear, a skill few other teachers bother to touch on. Steven B has helped on a number of occasions with songs that I am learning on my own and fit time into our lessons to work on them. He is always willing to let the student work on what they like as well as what he gives out. When I once mentioned my liking for jazz, we soon ...
