My name is Jennifer. I got my degree in vocal performance and minored in Jazz. I began voice lessons myself when I was eight. I am a mezzo soprano, and can teach both female and male voices. I have performed in several opera productions including but not limited to The Marriage of Figaro, Dido and Aeneus, Tenderland, and Hand of Bridge. I have worked and performed in masterworks by Brahms, Chopin, Mozart to name a few. I studied in French, English, Spanish, Italian, and German. I studied diction, ear training, piano, music history, pedagogy, and music theory. I have also performed with artists such as New York Voices, Bobby Mcferrin and Kurt Elling. I was blessed with many learning opportunities to grow in my passion and I would love to pass that knowledge and passion to anyone who wants to learn.
*** Lesson Details *** Lessons are de
signed around the needs of each student. The first lessons is always spent testing range, knowledge and abilities already known by the student. Then the student weighs in on what kind of music they would like to learn and what they hope to gain from the lessons. Theory and ear training are incorporated into the lessons. We work on breathing, technique and style. Generally we start with English or Italian. We work on vocal performance from a classical standpoint but Jazz and Broadway can also be taught if desired by the student. Scales and exercises are given each week to be worked on until the next lesson. A recording device is encouraged if the student cannot play the piano. Also, a voice note book to take notes during the lesson to be used during practice during the week.

I am the member of MTAC and prepare students for the California Certificate of Merit. My teaching philosophy is based in the belief that learning music should be fun and exciting! I always encourage my students to pursue the kind of music that they find most appealing, rather than using the same curriculum and method book. I teach private lessons and have had the experience of working with hundreds of students ranging from beginners with no experience to advanced players. I go to my students In all over Orange county and Corona.
*** Lesson Details *** Fun and patient piano teacher with more than 15 years of experience.
I am 70 and recently started learning to play piano with Minoo -- she is simply the very best teacher you could get! Already, she has me playing with two hands multiple songs and without looking at the keyboard! You will be amazed and grateful to have her as your teacher. She has me wanting to and happy to practice.
July 18, 2019
Minoo has taught me so much more than any piano instructor I ever had and she did it in only a few lessons so far. She makes it fun and now I really like practicing ---something my previous instructors did not seem to inspire me to do.

Great first lesson for my daughter - who is almost 5. Can’t wait for next week.
*** Travel Equipment *** I expect the student to buy the books that I need them to buy and to have either a keyboard or piano. I also expect that the Spanish students will obtain the proper materials that I ask of them.
I read best reviews. Can phone number of the Teacher be placed here so that I could enroll.

Ms. Janai was the best tutor I have ever had. No matter the day, or time she was always there to help me out. Either it was math, science, writing, etc. she'd help me with every subject no matter how long it took for me to get it right, every subject was like her first nature. She was amazing teaching in person and just as good online. I've never met another tutor like Janai, she understands what you're going wrong and what your difficulties are, but she always manages to turn those difficulties around and make you better at understanding what you need to do better in order to succeed. If you're looking for an outstanding tutor Janai is the way to go!

Janai is great with older adults. She's so patient and makes me feel relaxed even when I'm saying the wrong words. She has passion! and that's exciting to see.
The studio fosters a life-long love of and appreciation for music. Voice lessons include classically-based vocal technique, as well as musicianship and interpretation. Cross training between genres, from early music and opera to musical theater and pop, is my specialty. Learn the technical nuances necessary for healthy singing in any style.
Adhering to the highest artistic standards, students learn to tell inspiring, moving and engaging stories. Students are empowered to courageously step outside of their comfort zone and to embrace their fearless self-expression.

This only the first few lessons we've had with Rebekah, but I've seen a marked change in the way my daughter is playing piano. She seems enthusiastic and directed as I haven't seen her been before and she has been taking piano from two other teachers in the course of five years. Thank you Rebekah!

Rebekah has been teaching my daughter online for about 6 months now. She is very caring and knows how to engage with her student. After each class she sends practice assignment that I can print. My daughter has made great progress with Rebekah. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher.

About: I'm a video game composer who loves working with students of any age and skill level, whether they are beginning music for the first time or have been a musician for years. Getting people started composing or playing piano and watching them discover that they have a lot to say through music, is such a joy of mine. I tailor each lesson to specifically fit the student’s skills and interests, making sure that they are not only progressing but enjoying the process of making music.
My students have gone on to record their music in the Netherlands, write a musical that was performed at their college, write a song for their middle school talent show, score a short film - and much more!
With me, students can learn: • Piano • Composition (any style: jazz, classical, pop – you name it, we can do it!) • Composing for film, T.V.
and video games • How to use music composition software (Logic, Digital Performer, Cubase, Studio One, Pro Tools, Ableton etc.) • Music theory • Songwriting • Music production • How to use music notation software (write out your parts, charts, lead sheets etc. so that others can play your original compositions) • Classical percussion techniques
Students can expect to have a lot of fun learning with me! We can write soundtracks, band pieces, solo pieces - whatever the student finds most interesting.
Lesson Schedule: I teach M-TH 9am-9pm and Fri/Sunday: 9am-4pm I suggest booking lessons for a once a week reoccurring time slot for the best learning results.
Cancellation Policy: Sometimes things come up - I understand! All I ask is that you give me at least 24 hours notice before your lesson time and we can reschedule the lesson (you’ll get to keep your credit for that lesson). If not, or for no-shows, the lesson will be marked “missed” (you’ll lose a lesson credit). *If you miss 3 lessons in a row, another student may take your reoccurring time slot and we’ll need to find a new time.
Required Materials: In-person lessons only: Please bring a staff paper notebook. I use this to write notes in for you. You can find one on Amazon for about $5. Let me know if you need help with that! Online lessons only: Create a folder for our lessons, I will be sending you various files and PDFs so keep them all in the same place for easy access. depending on what you are learning, I may also have you download the Zoom desktop client, this is great for sharing system audio when working with music production. *If you are studying piano, composition or music software, it is suggested to have a piano or MIDI keyboard at home to practice on. If you do not have one, let me know before our first lesson and I can give you some suggestions of ones to purchase depending on your budget.
Teacher Location Information: Cat: I have a very friendly cat named Otto at my home location. He is very sweet and quiet and all of my students love him! However, if you are allergic to cats I would suggest booking online lessons. Parking: There is usually street parking available around the building.
Please feel free to send me a message with any questions!

"Dave taught my son guitar for about five years, from his middle school years up through high school. He always made my sons lessons fun and taught him mus
ic theory all along with learning enjoyable songs. Dave always encouraged my son to play things that were challenging and interesting yet complex enough to grow as a musician. He continues to play guitar and his ongoing love for guitar is due in part to Dave's years of lessons giving him the level of skill and joy."

One of the best tips for learning piano is making sure you have a well-rounded skill set! Read on as online piano teacher Crystal B. shares her thoughts...
The piano is definitely a unique instrument and playing piano requires a specific skill set. However, there are some basic musicianship skills that every piano player needs.
When people think of musicians that need great timing, they typically think of the drummer. But it’s equally important for a piano player to have gr …
