About Joe
I am currently the piano and guitar teacher at Oakwood Academy Schools of Long Beach, and the Music Director for the non-profit organization Arts Aloud Theater Group. I have a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in voice. I've been teaching for 17 years in classroom and one-on-one settings. Other places where I have taught are: Calvary Chapel Downey School, Dexter Music Academy, and ABC Unified School District. I've been complimented on my ability to teach in a way that makes my students learn very quickly. I was trained in the classical and pop/rock genres. I've toured with choirs throughout China, and the United States (including Carnegie Hall), and I have also toured with rock/pop bands in Spain, Mexico, Central America, Peru, and throughout the U.S.A.

I've worked with various vocal coaches including Grammy-nominated Ilene
Graff, and Maxayn Lewis (who has worked with Celine Dion and Britney Spears).

I am also currently the lead singer (also playing guitar & piano) for the band Hello Human. I've worked with amazing musicians including Michael Thompson (guitarist for Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera), and John Robinson (drummer for Quincy Jones, Elton John). I've also had the honor of working with Wyn Davis (producer of No Doubt, Sublime).

My vocal recordings/original songs are on television show The Young & The Restless (“Dreamers” June 11th episode 11449, “High Tops” June 6th episode 11447).

My vocal recordings/original songs are currently on KWAVE 107.9 and have been on Alcoa Tennessee'™s Love 89.1, Refuge, CSN, WCTL, and on hundreds of other radio stations.

*** Lesson Details ***
I divide my class into 4 parts: 1.Scales/Chords/Arpeggios/Warm-ups 2.Sight-Reading 3.Theory 4.Improvisation. Depending on the instrument of your choice, and also what your specific goals are, each of these parts are customized. You will learn quickly.

My emphasis was voice (Tenor) at Vanguard University. I am classically trained and trained in Rock/Pop. Violin was my first instrument, then I learned guitar and piano in college. I've done many professional recordings and performances throughout my career.

I've been teaching piano for over ten years. I teach everything from Bach, Mozart, and Chopin. I use Faber & Faber books for beginners and Intermediate.

About Tamara
I'm a producer, instructor, singer songwriter, sound engineer, and composer residing in Brooklyn, New York. I'm currently working on a Master's Degree in Music Production and Sound Design at The Academy of Art University, freelancing as a pianist/vocalist, and I'm working on and recording a second album.

I started singing, playing piano, and composing music when I was seven years old. Throughout my musical career, I have performed and collaborated with various rock bands, classical trios, vocal ensembles, churches, and theater groups.

My Education includes Berklee College of Music, Academy of Art University, McNally Smith College of Music, MCTC, and Full Sail University (BS and AAS degrees in Music Performance, Sound Arts/sound Engineering, Music Production).

I enjoy writing and playing classical, electronic, rock, jazz,
folk, punk, and experimental music. In my free time I like to circuit bend.

*** Lesson Details ***
When you take lessons from me expect to be inspired and pushed. I thoroughly love teaching music and want the best for my students. I try my best to involve and invite students to join or listen to live music ensembles, recitals, and performances of different genres. I teach all styles of music for voice, piano, and guitar. I am very diligent with practicing, teaching you how to practice, and keeping track of it. In 3 or 6 months you will have a basic understanding of music theory and a solid foundation of piano, voice, or guitar techniques. I thrive to boost self esteem and confidence in all the students that I teach. I also teach composition, students really enjoy writing their own songs and performing them.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide a guitar. I expect students that want voice or piano lessons to have some kind of keyboard in working condition.

*** Specialties ***

As a member of of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association) I am able to give your students great resources and opportunities to enter competitions.

I am also a member of New York State Music Teachers Association.

I am also a Pro Tools certified user.

You will learn to improve your tone and develop a better sense of style for the music. You will improve your sense of rhythm. I will give you help to approach the piano in a natural manner to fit your hand and arms. You will learn how to add fingering to ease playing difficult passages. You will learn how to memorize, since most institutions require memorizing pieces. i have been teaching Classical Piano for 8 years. my students have won auditions spots at various schools. I want to be your next instructor.

About Mark
I NOW TEACH ONLINE LESSONS. I teach according to your individual needs. I only teach in my own studio. I do not travel anymore. I also have time to teach lessons every other week. You may inquire to me about my availability to teach every other week on Saturdays. I help you become successful on piano, violin, cello, viola, bass, guitar, or bass guitar. I help you learn the instrument and learn to read music with my own ideas using fun worksheets and songs you really like to learn how to play. I fill your voids with activities such as practice techniques, sub-lessons, and ear training. I guide you toward proper posture, tone development, and the ability to keep a steady beat. I help you develop your musical independence by tweaking lessons to help you succeed. I help you have fun learning to read music for your instrument using my materia
ls. I believe talent is not a factor in learning. Mastering an instrument is the result of effective instruction and step by step guidance toward foundations and skills. I love to teach private lessons because I believe in spreading the word to make the great gift of playing music available to many. It is an inherited right and gift to enjoy a lifetime of personal satisfaction from playing a musical instrument. I love to help students build confidence and make progress. I help them problem solve by going through problems with them. I teach "how to think" and how to become a life long learner of the instrument. I love the challenge of finding ways to help students become successful at every step of the way. I am excited and enthused to be apart of student progress. I am influenced by many 20th Century performers including Van Cliburn, Oscar Peterson, George Shearing, Erroll Garner, Yudi Menuhin, Issac Stern, Dave Brubeck, and Horowitz among others. I am passionate in my teaching about providing an effective solution to my student's needs. I am pleased to announce my teaching has awarded a cello student a spot at Del Sol music high school for the 2017-2018 school year. this student of mine passed an audition January of 2017 as a result of my teaching. The student worked very hard and followed my instruction very well. Congratulations!! I am also pleased to announce two of my cello students have both passed auditions to play in the Las Vegas Youth Orchestra starting in September 2017 and September 2018. They both auditioned during May 2017 and May 2018. Congratulations to both of you!!! I also had a violin student who passed auditions for LVA (Las Vegas Academy) a couple of years ago. I have no connection to these organizations. These students all worked hard and followed my instruction. I can help you learn as well. Recently with the development of "octave" strings, if you have been split between learning violin, viola, or cello; these strings installed on a violin or viola make the instrument sound like a cello. It is really something. They are tuned an octave below, so they sound very low. A lot of cello music will have to be transcribed for owners of these instruments installed with "octave" strings. Videos can be found on YOU TUBE of these instruments played. They are ordinary violins or violas strung up with thicker strings to sound an octave below.

I am a professional educator who works with both children and adults, and has the patience to help them. I am a performer who has over 30 years of public experience in solo playing as well as ensemble work. I have performed at Nordstrom for nine years, and performed at many private functions. I have performed classical as well as jazz music as part as my performance experience. I have taught private lessons for well over 17 years. I'm sorry, as of Summer 2016 I do not travel to student locations. I teach at my studio as well as online. If you are among the many parents who home-school your children, you should consider music lessons for them. There are many benefits of home-schooling, but unfortunately students miss out on specials. Practicing an instrument can make up for that and also teach critical learning habits and personal skills toward learning in general.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in personalizing your approach to the strangeness of the instrument. You need to learn much about posture, and proper tone production within the first year. Method books are not "how to" books. You need a teacher to guide you toward becoming familiar with the instrument. You also need to learn how to listen to the sounds you make as you play. To develop "musical independence" you need to become musically literate, develop tone production skills, and internalize a steady beat. Rhythm and tone are basic concepts that must be mastered to maximize pleasure in playing your instrument. Learning how to problem solve is another skill I teach so you can help yourself toward progress.
I believe in using the instrument in daily activities such as playing "Happy Birthday" at family get together. Christmas Songs or Hanukkah Songs can bring much joy during December family parties.
A musician in the house brings much joy during holidays and celebrations; and the families are brought closer together. Memories are created and last forever. Playing an instrument is exciting and expresses what can not be said using words. I believe in teaching students based on their strengths, and building upon them. I am excited to help you learn!!

I only teach in my own studio and online. I do not travel anymore.

You can advance quickly if you are taught to listen to yourself and follow my instruction. I will guide you every step of the way to understand how music making works. Music lessons are fun and enjoyable. I am pleased to guide you through your learning every step of the way. My students in Las Vegas have had much success with my teaching and guidance. I will succeed where others fail. You will reap the benefits of my professional instruction. I bring a wealth of teaching experience, teacher training, and professional playing experience to every lesson. Most music store studio instructors have very little or no teacher training. Playing experience does not make one a helpful teacher. Failure to learn "how to" teach along with not earning any teaching credentials will not make a satisfying music instructor.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Grand Piano 5'1', Digital Piano 88 Keys, Violin, Viola, Bass Guitars ( 5 String Fretless), electric guitar (Fender), Upright Bass 3/4 Size French/German Bows.

*** Specialties ***
Suzuki for string instruments. Thompson, Schaum for piano. Blues, Jazz and " Real Book " for jazz piano as well as Frank Mantooth books for chords. I also create materials to suit individual student needs. Classical Piano Volumes.

With over 10 years of teaching experience, and 25 years of performance experience, you're in capable hands to learn it all from the basics to the classics! I have a bachelor's degree in music, and an unquenchable passion for teaching! Learn it all from the basics to the classics!

About Rebekah
With a degree in classical voice and over 10 years of teaching experience, I can help you reach your musical goals! Using proven methods, you can learn the techniques necessary to sing like the pros or make the ivory keys of your piano dance!

My teaching style would be best described as fun and flexible. I'm a total stickler for proper technique and classical learning theory, but I also give my students the power to choose what repertoire they work on. I often tell my pupils, "I don't really care what you're playing or singing, as long as you focus on the fundamentals learned in lessons". I believe students will practice music they like, so I encourage them to pick songs they enjoy hearing. The concept that purposeful learning can be achieved using almost any repertoire is at the core of my teaching philosophy.

For me Rebekah was exactly what I needed in a singing teacher. I have been taking lessons with her weekly for over a year and a half and the improvement in my singing ability continues. Rebekah is friendly but no nonsense and put to rest a lot of preconceived notions I had about how to sing. She had endless exercises and drills for me and allowed me to pick my own material. She encouraged me to take risks but also cut me no slack if I was falling short. I would say her lessons were like having a Zen Master as many of her teachings went right over my head until over time when there would be another "Ohhhh now I get it" moment. Rebekah would always build on my previous knowledge in improving my abilities and my understanding of what my body is actually doing as I sing. I've seen her work with all ages and levels of students and I think she is uniquely talented and I feel very lucky to have found her. So if you're looking for an awesome voice instructor this wannabe rock star gives Rebekah P. his highest recommendation. - John Hauser

I took piano for nine years. I have seven students now and have been teaching for four years.
I am willing to give plenty of time and attention to my students and always teach with the knowledge that each student is different and unique.
I do not have a set time in which students must finish lessons (I.e. 30 minute for 40 minute lessons only.). I will teach them for as long or as short as I feel the need.

About Ashley
Hi!
My name is Ashley, and I am 20 years old. I took piano lessons for nine years, and I have taught for 4 years. Currently I have eight students, and I am looking forward to having more. I have a flexible time schedule, and currently have a few days and various times open.
I use Alfred’s books, as I feel they are very well structured and helpful to both teacher and student.
I prefer to teach younger children or children who have never had lessons before, but I would gladly be willing to work with older students and/or those who have had experience.
I strive to be patient, understanding, and am more than happy to take time with my students. I will teach for as short or as long as they need to be taught, I do not try to cram lessons into a specific time schedule. I do review frequently and make sure my students understand what they are
learning.
As of now, I teach children who are 7 years old, 12 years old, and in between.
I enjoy teaching and want to make it affordable to parents and fun and enjoyable for students.

I have been teaching piano for over 15 years, both in the classroom and private lesson settings. I believe anyone can learn an instrument-so all ages and skill levels are welcome. I fervently believe that a solid foundation in music theory and technique goes a long way, but I also know that you should love what you do. If that love is classical music, then this is the place for you-music should bring joy! Because I am a classically trained pianist I can help you achieve your goals, whether they be to prepare for a college or governor's school audition, to prepare for competitions, or simply to play the music you most enjoy. Whether you have always dreamed of learning or are browsing for a child just beginning to consider it, I would love to work with you!

About Carrie
I am a professional worship leader and pianist, as well as a professional teacher. I hold a Bachelor's degree in Music, specifically voice and piano, from Columbia International University and a Master of Arts in Teaching early childhood and elementary education from that same school. I have been in this industry since I was a child, working both professionally and in a volunteer capacity. I have done everything from touring with choral groups, to directing musicals, to conducting children and adult choirs, to writing and arranging music for choirs and students, to teaching individual and group lessons.

My passion is the music of the church, but I am classically trained and have taught many different styles throughout my career, from Broadway to gospel and many things in between. I endeavor with each of my students to find their p
assion and goals before we ever dig in to the mechanics of learning to play so that I can direct your lessons in the way that best suits you. If playing off of a chord chart with a band is your goal, I can make your lessons suit that purpose. If you want to work toward competitions as a classical musician, I can help there too. I can also help if all you want to do is play for your own enjoyment or raise a well rounded child who appreciates the arts! While the basics of music theory are foundational and need to be taught, the techniques and methodology can be adjusted to suit your needs, whatever they may be.

I look forward to speaking with you and getting the chance to help you fall in love with music and to work toward your goals.

Study with an accomplished teacher with a passion for piano, performance, and education! I have 8 years of teaching experience and 20 years of playing experience as well as a B.M. and M.M. in piano performance. In lessons I create individualized plans for students focusing on technique, note reading, rhythm, theory, performance practice and interpretation. I have studied piano pedagogy in college as well as on my own to help evaluate students on their strengths and weaknesses as well as their preferred learning modalities to find the best possible methods for them to meet their creative goals. My education and experience allow me to provide a very high level of instruction and am able to serve students of various backgrounds, abilities, and ages. I can also help guide interested students through competitions and college auditions. With me as your instructor you will not only develop skills for piano, but gain a deeper and more personal understanding of music in general.

About Dorothy
Greetings! As a classical pianist, I have been playing and performing for 20 years and have been teaching for 8 years. I have received a conservatory style education and possess a Bachelor's of Music in Piano Performance from the University of Redlands and Master's of Music in Piano Performance from Bob Cole Conservatory at CSULB. I currently serve on the board of director's for the University of Redlands Summer Piano Camp where I teach classes on art, sight reading, and coach advanced ensembles. I also am a staff accompanist at the University of Redlands and am also a freelance accompanist for vocalists and instrumentalists.
I graduated from the prestigious Idyllwild Arts Academy for high school and first attended their summer program at 15. I received an invitation and played in the Oberlin International Youth Piano Competition
at age 16. I won awards through MTAC and MTNA as a student. At the University of Redlands I was a recipient of the Mary E. Lehigh Endowed Music Grant and a winner of the highly competitive University of Redlands Concerto Competition. I performed as a soloist with the University of Redlands Symphony twice, the first being MacDowell's 2nd Piano Concerto in D Minor Op. 31 and Saint-Saens' Carnival of the Animals.
While pursuing my Master's of Music degree I was selected to perform as a soloist and collaborator in numerous concerts on and off campus. I also received a Graduate Research Grant and published my Master's thesis while in attendance.
My primary teachers have been Louanne Long and Dr. Shun-Lin Chou.
As a teacher I work towards the individual's needs, identifying strengths and weakness and learning modalities to create a specialized lesson plan to help the student excel and meet all their artistic goals. I focus on a holistic approach to education and not only teach playing and note reading but also rhythm, ear training, theory, performance practice and interpretation. It is only through a well rounded approach that one may truly master this craft. I have high expectations for my students and I know they have high expectations of me as well.
I teach out of my teaching studio in my quiet and private home where I have both a Schumann 6'3 grand piano and a Baldwin upright. Both pianos are very well taken care of and in excellent condition.
