Sharon was absolutely fabulous and got my son prepared and confident for his auditions!! She was always on time, easy to reach and sincerely took a personal interest in preparing him to be successful in his immediate goals but also has given him the tools to continue to practice on his own and hone his skills. I would absolutely recommend her and she more than exceeded our expectations!!

Andrew C.

Henderson, NV

basic theory to university level education

About Andrew

The following is a brief profile. Andrew is a multi-instrumentalist (guitar, banjo, mandolin, ukulele, backing vocals) who settled in Las Vegas in 2013. After graduating from Musicians Institute in 2008, he wrote a collection of acoustic guitar pieces licensed to The Weather Channel, then spent 5 years working as a show musician and top-40 musician for 3 cruise lines. Upon arrival in Sin City, Andrew co-founded the local band “Tin Toy Cars” which consists of various Cirque du Soleil musicians from 2 shows. Their debut album entitled "Falling, Rust and Bones" is currently on hundreds of rad
io stations nationwide and is also currently the highest-ranked new artist debut album on the A.M.A. charts where it is quickly climbing. Look for the album on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby. In January 2016 the band had feature articles in dozens of newspapers and magazines in Las Vegas, New York, and Los Angeles, and has many radio interviews scheduled to start the year. He also performs in the band backing Nashville recording artist Rowdy McCarran (album available on iTunes). The band is sponsored by Outlaw Energy Drink and Headblade, and has won the Las Vegas Battle of the Bands 3 of the last 4 years (did not compete in 2014 because Rowdy was recording the album in Nashville). They were the house band for two different venues during the December 2015 NFR event. They perform regularly in Las Vegas at various venues, and were featured on Channel 13's "Valley View Live" in November and December 2015. They headlined a few shows in Nashville in January 2016, and are always performing somewhere in Las Vegas every week. Andrew also owns an arranging and publishing company, Mojave Sun Sound, which produces arrangements and sheet music for various Las Vegas performers, and a few cruise ship entertainers. He is also the founder and director of the non-profit organization “Band Together Music Charities." The organization provides free music lessons to children from families falling under Federal Poverty Guidelines, and employs local professionals at rates outlined by The Las Vegas Musicians Union, allowing instructors to contribute to their health plans and pension funds. Andrew also teaches weekly lessons and plays Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings at Las Vegas's Family Worship Christian Church (non-denominational). A separate christian band also performs Sunday evenings at the church's attached concert venue "The Las Vegas Family Worship Arts Center” and Andrew is their guitarist as well. During the lessons, Andrew uses the same software as his professionally arranged sheet music, to keep a journal for each student as they learn, and the journal is regularly emailed to the student as a PDF file. He also includes video examples on the take lessons website for every instrument that he advertises teaching, for the benefit of perspective students, and is happy to answer any questions through the Take Lessons platform.

After my first lesson, I feel that if anyone can teach me guitar, it's Andrew. He's great at explaining things and is very encouraging, and he focused specifically on what it is I want to know. He laid out the basics for me in a very simple, direct way, and my "homework" from just this lesson will take me MUCH farther than I've ever gotten on my own. He's a great instructor.

My granddaughter has been taking lessons with Miss Cindy for approx. 1 year.
Her first performance (recital), she got a superior rating and was highly encouraged to continue. This performance was held at UNLV and she received no points, I think because she wasn't yet eligible for points. She had not been playing very long.
Her second was held at same location was the NFMC Junior Festival on 3/07/15. She again received a superior rating, with more encouragement. This one, she did receive points. I'm still not sure how that works. I'm always just so happy to hear her and Miss Cindy play together!
I attribute all of this to Miss Cindy and her wonderful understanding not only of the piano, but of how to teach young children. And I believe she tailors all lessons to that particular child's needs and wants. Miss Cindy makes the lessons incredibly fun and is so very gentle with constructive criticism, that my granddaughter really wants to do her very best every time. And, she understands how very important it is to practice because she aspires to play as well as her teacher!
She can't wait to go to her lessons, and can't wait to show the family what she has learned.
Honestly (I play myself), if you are looking for a classical piano teacher, Cindy Jihyun L. should be your first choice. Even if it's a bit more of a drive than you want, Miss Cindy is the epitome of a Classical Pianist! She is well worth the time, and so worth the cost of lessons.
Here's the trick. Make sure your child practices, and that it isn't drudgery. Don't choose the piano for your child. Let your child choose the piano. And choose this teacher. I promise, you'll be glad you did.

I love music theory and have been learning more and more of it since I began at age 8. I have a lot of experience composing and applying music theory, and would love to share the knowledge that I have.

About Aaron

My goal is to spread the love of music and music theory to as many people as I can. I have been playing piano for the past 15 years and have had great teachers from whom I've learned great playing, composing, and teaching techniques. I have been playing guitar for 10 years as well. I'm in an alternative rock band, The Perks, based out of Las Vegas, and have experience composing and playing multiple instruments. I have a thorough understanding of music theory and hope to share what I know with my students. I'm a student at UNLV, I tutor autistic kids, and I love music.
