Marsha K.

Roseville, CA

About Marsha

This week I started giving out lockable gold stars, you know, the old-fashioned kind? They are for those students who mark their lesson sheet and come prepared... They really seem to enjoy that, and I adore the nostalgia!

It is a great week when students are nearly all prepared and ready for their lessons. This makes both Coach and student more effective and the time together more enjoyable.

Each week we focus on something in my STUDENT PAL - mnemonic. One choice is Articulation. Articulation is how you press the keys, whether short (staccato) smoothly (legato) or accented. Vocal stu
dents as well worked on their diaphragm and getting sounds out in a variety of ways.

Perhaps you are reading this with both a little excitement and a little concern. Finding the right person for your or your student can be intimidating. A short introduction follows so that you know a little about me and my philosophy which can assist you make an informed decision. If we are a good fit, lessons and learning progress more joyfully.

I have been teaching music, performing music and enjoying music since I was a tiny three-year old. My first piano lessons were at age seven. I have since taught the students of former students! How fun is that?

Music has blessed my life in countless ways and given me opportunities I'd never dreamed of. Teaching at the Young Artists Conservatory of Music; Singing in Carnegie Hall, Performing across Europe and teaching the best students for over 25 years has been a delight.

I believe strongly that those who spend their time and resources for musical education are some of the brightest and most intelligent people around. Each of my students have their own individual goals and reasons for taking music lessons, which we revisit monthly. I believe that my role is to be a support and tool for them/you to accomplish the goals set, working with music that delights and educates.

You want the best teacher, who offers information, example, practice and performance opportunities and then gets out of the way of the student's own "voice" (whether playing or singing) so that they can be free to create their own style.

*** Lesson Details ***
In our lessons, we work with a predictable schedule of balance. We have weekly exercises to make strong fingers and or voices, and technique and theory practice to hone skills that will improve our performances, whether they are for others or for our own benefit. Each student of piano can learn how to create and write their own music in time, choose their own pieces to work on, and have a say in their classical and performance goals.

We have a program of advancement, so you and your loved ones can visually see your progress and measure your skills, complete with awards and trophies.

What you learn, has everything to do with your commitment. Practice doesn't make perfect, Practice makes permanent. Only perfect practice makes perfect.

Learning the piano ought to be a JOY. I believe in playing the piano, not 'practicing' it. Enjoy what you do, and you'll do it longer and with celebration instead of duty.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano - upright; CD player; Music stands; Dozens of music books and lesson materials; flash cards; computer and music writing program; mic and mirror, syllabus.

*** Travel Equipment ***
No travel.

*** Specialties ***
Over the years I have dabbled in most methods, but finally come to use my own syllabus and musicianship. I can easily adapt to your favourite if that is your desire. I specialize in a total music education, not merely in learning notes. It is like looking in a mirror and only seeing eyes and skin. Music has many facets and we discover all of them.

Benjamin W.

Orangevale, CA

About Benjamin

*** Classroom Textbooks ***
If the student uses a textbook and/or study material on subject, prepare those in advance of the lesson to facilitate fluid transition between subject matter and material.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Books and study material. The student should have a pencil and pad for any notes as well as the instrument of choice for the proper lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I am a big advocate towards playing the instruments together that way it helps to solidify my knowledge as well as the students. Also if it is a theory lesson than have the instrument right there for appl
ication.

Benjamin is awesome! He takes the time to listen to any concerns my son has and is truly genuine. Matthew can't wait to meet with him every week. The confidence that Matthew now has, has been noticed not only by his school band teacher but his fellow band members have given him compliments as well. I highly recommend Benjamin to anyone who is looking for an instructor that meets there child where they are at skill level and encourages with his magnetic personality, while showing immediate results.

Laura R.

Rescue, CA

About Laura

I am 31 years old and new to California. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in Secondary Science Education-Biology. I am certified in the state of Florida. The first lesson will consist of diagnostics so that I can better tailor my teaching to your child. If there are basics that need to be covered before a student can successfully complete a more advanced concept, the basics will be retaught. I am fun, I make learning fun and easy and I do not judge, I just help.

Barbara S F D.

Placerville, CA

About Barbara

Students tell me exactly what they want to learn, and I go to work fulfilling that list. On the way, I add enhancements. We add current local and global conditions so you can express your points of view in your second language. I'll introduce you to a little music and art of the culture you're studying. It helps you acquire the language faster.

Your pronunciation, grammar and sentence structure will improve brilliantly when you speak or write your political, economic, social or environmental points of view. Lessons are more interesting when the topics are pertinent to real life!

I'm a f
ormer Spanish teacher with a degree in Literature from UCSC, Students say I give them a strong foundation and confidence to converse in Spanish. You'll be able to understand and respond, even to complex sentences and ideas.

As a journalist and creative writer, teaching English is pure enjoyment for me. I tutor students in reading, spelling, grammar, comprehension, homework assignments and creative writing. As a published author, I can really help you shine in English class.

It's fun for me (maybe not so much for you!) to help students prepare for Big Tests like ACT and SAT. I take them from time to time myself. Let me help you feel confident.

Spanish lessons focus on training the ear and then looking at the written word. The result is very good pronunciation (some native speakers think I'm Latina). I love the Spanish language. Let me help you love it too, so that you're effective as a student, on the job, traveling and socializing.

For fun, I took the College Board SAT on-line in May, 2015. I scored in the 98th percentile for Reading and the 95th for Writing. I scored 32 correct out of 33 on the Spanish Practice Test.
