Diamond Bar, CA

What you'll expect is a mix of sight reading, technique learning and playing, book performance and improvisation by ear for each lesson in the style the student wishes to learn about. If needed, I also write individual exercises tailored to each student and their practice routine. I teach them all of the major, minor and modal scales, chords, arpeggios, proper hand positioning and fingering. I teach many ages, especially beginners up to level 5 in piano levels.

About Cody
With my two Bachelor's degrees in Music Composition and Technology, I began tutoring students in piano, voice, and composition as it was part of my training. I also have experience writing and editing essays, books, and more for several independent clients. I have experience writing my own books as well. I have written two so far, but am getting ready to write a third. I am a copious editor and can catch grammatical and other errors with ease. This is why tutoring in English would be great for me.
I thought I would add basic math for those school-aged children that are having a little trouble with it in their classes.
Usually, I teach lessons in my home in Diamond Bar or online, but if the need arises, I could surely work out coming to the students' homes for one-on-one tutoring help. With me, most students click after a few lessons and
understand what they couldn't in the classroom. I help the students by teaching in innovative ways that will catch their attention more than standard teaching methods. Students should consider me for I can make learning fun and never a chore!

*** Lesson Details ***
I use a wide variety of techniques to sing, play piano and other instruments. Techniques include straight vowel singing (no words) to test how long to hold notes, using color to help people sight read, using improvisational techniques in order to play jazz, rock, classical and many other styles of music.
I use what they student has under his or her belt as a starting point to see what lessons we could start them on.
I also assist with online lessons to make transportation a thing of the past. If you've got a webcam or Skype, I can do long-distance lessons with you! So, I am here to help!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Alesis Recital Keyboard
Music sheets
Web cam
Mac computer (MacBook Pro)
Finale music notation software to help in composition and theory lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Music paper for away lessons.
Finale for composition and music theory lessons.
Can use macbook for more elaborate teaching or demonstration if need be.

*** Specialties ***
I do teach classical composition with specialties in ensemble and chamber music. I also specialize in songwriting for pop and other media.
I teach voice and vocal techniques of sacred choral and vocal music.
I teach classical and jazz piano and improvisation. I also have the distinction in being able to teach students with special needs or learning disabilities as I have a mild form of cerebral palsy and understand what students with special needs go through.

I use many methodologies when teaching to help students achieve their goals. After getting to know my students I adapt a lesson plan that helps them learn best. I think the most important aspect of teaching is to really help the student understand, appreciate and enjoy the music they are working on along with sound practice strategies. Then it really makes all that hard work worth it. From the beginning I will help my student learn whatever style or songs they are interested in.

About Michael
I've been teaching students of all ages about piano/keyboards, guitar, and voice lessons for the last 16 years. I cover many styles and methodologies depending on the needs of the student. My lessons can be structured to cover theory, sight-reading, technique as well as how to play by ear and music transcription. It can be a very traditional approach or more contemporary if your goal is to play in a band or be a solo performer. Whatever it is that you want to learn or improve, I can help you achieve your goals. I have a BA in music with classical piano as my focus. I was the music director at two Methodist churches in NJ, and I still occasionally play with the parish drive band when they need me. I play in an 80's rock band called My You Choose, where we raise money for various organizations like CUMAC to help feed hungry people in NJ. I
also do solo gigs or parties whenever I get the opportunity.

I teach music from the perspective of a modern musician and a songwriter. I want to make sure you are relaxed and having fun, as well as learning everything you want to learn in these lessons! We will get you playing songs you enjoy, right from the start. The most important thing to me, is for my students to have fun during their lessons, because real learning comes from commitment, and commitment comes much easier when you enjoy what you do.

About Loralee
Loralee began exploring music at a very young age, as part of a musical household. She enrolled in flute lessons at the age of 4, giving her solid roots in music theory and an appreciation for classical music. Her flute lessons later led her to take part in marching band and numerous musical ensembles. Aside from her love of music, 15 years of performing and studying dance led her to discover her joy in teaching when she began to teach creative movement and ballet to young dancers. In college, she began learning guitar and writing music to match a growing passion for songwriting and acoustic folk music. Her musical pursuits led her to join a local alt pop/punk band as a vocalist, and she performed with them in the surrounding area. After graduating with a B.A. at Michigan State University, Loralee began to pursue a career as a solo musici
an, and released a 4 song EP “If You Were a Song”. Now, she has written hundreds of songs and performs her original music in the San Francisco area.

I have been teaching piano for beginners for several years. I'm a very dedicated teacher, listener and I want to motivate my students to know, learn and listen better and better. First of all, I'm interested in knowing the student's goals and work from there.

About André
I'm a motivated and good listener teacher who loves to see his students accomplish their objectives. I have a Masters degree in Jazz from the Manhattan School of Music and a Bachelor in Classical Double Bass from the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Austria. I'm a active musician, both as a leader of my projects as well as sideman. I have played all around Europe, Egypt as well as much around in the new York area. I have also released two albums under my name, composing all the music in both of them.

I have been teaching for 4 years. Right after finishing my Bachelor degree, I started teaching in two music schools in Portugal: Academia de Amadores de Música (one of the most important music schools in Lisbon) and ESTAL. I have also made part of the staff of the Conservatório de Música of Azores, where I traveled monthly to
teach local students. I have taught double bass, music theory and conducted the school's orchestra. Since I moved to New York, I taught through the Manhattan School of Music Outreach Department, teaching young students about Jazz and Improvisation. I have also taught privately in my home studio, both bass and double bass as well as piano and theory.

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.

My lessons are engaging, student-centered, and never intimidating. My goal is to meet the needs of the person in front of me - period. No longer study with someone who follows the "master-apprentice" approach. This mind-set is outdated, and most of all, ineffective. My extraordinary training in both psychology and music education allow me to convey the best of teaching strategies to my students, leading to their musical success.

You will not be disappointed.

About Lauren

Receiving her degrees from Bard College (BA - Piano Performance, Vocal Performance, Theater) and Columbia University (Music & Music Education), she has the excellent training to back up her skills in performing.

Focussed on a student-centered rapport at the forefront of her teaching philosophy, she is dedicated to meeting the needs of her students. She has a plethora of experience and teaching strategies to tailor toward her students.

I am an adult who always wanted to be able to sing and express myself through music, but unfortunately did not have the natural ability to hold a tune. Lauren worked with me to systematically develop my range and strengthen my voice and vocal confidence. I am learning a lot of practical techniques, and Lauren gives me lots of individualized feedback and helps me develop good vocal habits/health.

I have been teaching piano for over 15 years, both in the classroom and private lesson settings. I hold a Bachelor's degree in music and a Master's in early childhood and elementary education, but 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 from experience that choosing to play the types of music you love is essential to successful learning. Music should bring joy, so no matter what style you want to learn, I can help you fall in love with it even more! As a professional worship leader and pianist I have the experience to work across genres, so 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.
