About Crystal S.

Los Angeles, CA
View Full Profile

American born and UK educated, Crystal has an international mastery of the English language. She has shared this with students in individual tutoring sessions, as well as in the classroom. She is currently teaching her own classroom course Shakespeare For Kids to grades K-12.

About Crystal
Crystal brings a lifetime’s experience of professional musicianship to each of her lessons. Born into a family of musicians, she sang her first solo at age 2. She also benefits her students with an extraordinarily diverse musical background, having worked as a vocalist in gospel, country, musical theater, jazz, classical, rock, pop and soul styles. Her performing career has taken her from L.A. church meetings to London’s Houses of Parliament.

Crystal hails originally from Los Angeles, CA - where her musical parents gave her a head start by including her in the family business the moment she was able to contribute. She went on to study classical voice, piano and music theory at The Boston Conservatory of Music. After concluding her studies in London, she returned home and began working regularly as a theater performer, appearing in twen
ty world premiers and re-imagined classics. Most notably she played the lead role of Keely Smith in the big band jazz musical “Louis and Keely: Live At The Sahara” during its eight-month run at Westwood’s Geffen Playhouse. She also formed her own rock band, The Honeysuckle Jones Revival, with whom she performed her own songs all over Los Angeles. And she began working as a studio session vocalist, providing demo vocals for other songwriters, as well as arranging and performing back-up vocals for original artists, including Laura Roppe (currently in the Top Ten on Billboard’s Uncharted list of emerging artists.) Crystal played the lead role of Brooke in the new operatic rock musical “The Burning Opera LA” during its Los Angeles run in 2011 as well as providing ensemble vocals and playing piano and bass. She also performs holiday tunes from the Golden Age of American songwriting with musical quartet The Sleigh Belles.

Crystal believes that music is serious business but that it should be fun. She encourages her students to play music they love, as well as expanding their musical knowledge. She is a firm believer in basics first and emphasizes theory and technique as the tools to support creativity and provide freedom, power and control. She believes effort beats talent every time and the student who practices consistently will see results, whatever their level of ability. Most of all, she believes we were all born to make music.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lesson structure varies depending on the student's instrument, age, level of experience and musical style. However, all lessons focus on:

Technique
Music theory
Performance style

After 3 or 6 months of consistent lesson attendance and practice, students will have a clear understanding of how their instrument works and how to care for it. They will be able to read basic music notation. They will be working toward clearly defined musical goals and they will have at least three performance pieces learned.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Loft Space: full size electric piano with weighted keys, small digital recorder, microphone, Garage Band, parents can sit in on lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring a small keyboard for vocal students with no piano, karaoke tracks and a digital recorder. I also bring a selection of games. Students are expected to purchase all necessary books and sheet music.

*** Specialties ***
Young beginners (piano)

Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

We will be using different songs to learn how to speak! We will also be really focusing on phonemic awareness. I can’t wait to help with your journey to speak English

About Micah
I have been teaching music and tutoring for a few years now!

I enjoy music so much! I received my degree from the University of Arkansas Little Rock. I am also a member of the worship band at my church.

One thing that I enjoy the most, as a teacher, is seeing growth and seeing students get that “aha” moment. The most amazing thing about teaching is being able to see the joy in students as they perform. They get to be themselves. Playing an instrument or singing is raw, vulnerable and takes a lot of hard work.

Being a musician is worth it. You get to be able to express yourself in ways impossible otherwise.

Please let me help you along your journey to become the musician you dream to be.

I also mentor/ tutor students at the middle school level in the four core subjects: Math, Science, English and History. I really enjoy w
orking one on one making sure that my students are setting goals and really understanding the material they should be studying.

I would love to teach music and do a little bit of math if you would like that for your child. I can also teach English while we play instruments or sing.

Please let me know if you have any questions! Cannot wait to meet you!

About Dmitry Y.

Close

I'm an engineer by profession, by passion and been working in this field for quite a long time. Nevertheless, I also like to teach languages and go to language exchange groups in different places to share my knowledge of languages.

The teaching experience that I have included:
- The social aspect of communication is very important, so I prefer to adjust to a specific style of learning of each person
- I prefer live, interesting discussion that brings result rather than just formal lessons.
- The most important aspect of learning language is having fun, so I believe this is the most important part. When it's dull it's really hard to learn something, so it must be engaging and interesting.

In other words, I'm an engineer who loves to teach people different things and it means that my definition of success is helping people become fluent in a language. My focus is the result itself.

About Dmitry
I'm an engineer by profession (and degree) but was always enjoying teaching other people languages. I'm a native Russian speaker but been living in the USA for 10 years and fluent in English.
I highly believe that education should be done in informative and a fun way, this is the only approach to achieve the result.
And the result is the most important part of any education and this is my main focus - make you speak the language quickly.
I will find the best approach depending on the student language level and particular needs.
I look forward to e-meeting you!
