Joel M. Los Angeles, CA

About Joel

Personal Bio: Hi, I'm Joel. I'd say that my decision to take piano lessons turned out to be one of the most important things I've ever done. I've made great friends through music and discovered my gifts. I am a 2014 grad of the University of Southern California's "Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television" program. I received my undergraduate degree from College of the Ozarks, where I studied piano performance, theory, composition and orchestration. I have also interned with television composer Mike Post (NYPD Blue, Law and Order SVU). Playing piano has opened up these different opportunities for me. It instills confidence and creativity. Over the years, I wouldn't have succeeded if it weren't for the patience and encouragement of my teachers. They not only taught me how to ...

Joel is a truly gifted pianist and well versed in music theory. He was always quick with an answer to any of my many questions. He was also very patient with me as I was an adult taking lessons for the first time.

Cullam O. Springfield, MO

About Cullam

I've been taking piano lessons since I was only five years of age, and have been enjoying music for my entire life. It is this love of music and consistent burst of endorphins that I would like to pass on to my future students. Whether you intend to become a musician or not, I believe that channeling music is one of the biggest catalysts for creativity, critical thinking, and general well-being. Not only do I want to better peoples' lives with teaching music, but I truly enjoy it; I get the same, overwhelmingly happy and emotional feeling teaching music as I do playing it. Apart from taking lessons for such a long time, I'm currently a piano performance major at Missouri State University, and plan to acquire a Masters and Doctor of Musical Arts degree later in the future. I have
