I trained in theory at UCLA with Paul Reale and continued my studies throughout my years in graduate school. I am well versed in analyzing music and know a lot of repertoire. I have skill in the Sibelius music writing program and used Finale for years so I can help budding and more advanced composers as well.
I've been teaching piano, cello, voice and theory in Los Angeles for over thirty years, helping students develop their particular interests in music and to encourage them to reach their personal goals. I love the classics and many of my students want to play popular music, contemporary sounds and jazz and that is fine too. I received my BA in music at UCLA and a Master's at Cal State Northridge. I conduct vocal and bell choirs, run a concert series, play chamber music, sing in a band and teach in the Community College District in addition to running my private studio. *** Lesson Details *** My students work on technical skills such as playing scales and chords at the beginning of each lesson since these are the building blocks of the music we wish to play. I expect students to ...
I start at the beginning with pitch and rhythm and work toward chords and progressions, key signatures and the circle of fifths. Written assignments will be given in a text book and applied to the instrument of your choice.
A lover of cats, kids, and music, I started taking Suzuki violin lessons at age six, finishing all ten books before the end of high school. I added guitar, guitar variants such as ukulele, cuatro, and tiple, and percussion during my Masters degree in Ethnomusicology at U.T. Austin and began teaching world music, piano, and theory at L.A. Trade Tech College in 2002. I performed for several years with the Cal Arts Balinese gamelan, Burat Wangi and moved to New York to perform with the local chamber pop ensemble Kotorino in 2008. It was there that I started teaching individual lessons on violin and guitar before moving back to my natal LA to take the Suzuki book 1 training with Liz Arbus. I have many years of experience performing in world and pop music ensembles and have a deep love for ...
I teach basic Music Theory to all my students so that they understand the role of the cello in an orchestral position as well in chamber music. But it is essential to understand the basics of music theory. So I make it a rule that each student learn music theory every 2 weeks during their lesson.

Music is the fuel of my life! Born and raised in Russia, I was heavily influenced by the American/British rock/pop scene and started writing my own musical material in English at the age of 8. While studying classical piano and music theory for five years, I also picked up interest in the guitar and by the age of 19 I had an independent, self-produced album under my belt. Making music for a living was always my dream. This dream finally drove me to pursue my career nowhere else, but the entertainment capitol of the world, Los Angeles. While in Hollywood, I attended LA Talent Academy (Theatre of Arts, affiliated with The Musicians Institute) where I studied Music performance under the guidance of world class professionals. I have also worked with great producers, whose credentials include ...
Knowing how music works is not only beneficial but REWARDING! Understanding how music is put together gives you the tools to perform AND write your own music!
Hi! My name is Shannon and I am very excited to be apart of the Takelesson's team! I think I came out of the womb singing a song! My love of music and eventually performing, led me to receive my bachelor's in Voice Performance from Missouri Southern State University in my hometown of Joplin, Missouri. While getting my degree, I realized I wasn't quite ready to embark in the professional performing world without a little more education. I went on to receive my Masters Degree in Musical Theater from The Boston Conservatory. I moved to LA in the fall of 2009 and fell in love with the weather and the people. Music is such an important part of my life and I love sharing my knowledge and passion with other people! Not only is learning about music a fun experience, but helps build ...
