About Joe
I am currently the piano and guitar teacher at Oakwood Academy Schools of Long Beach, and the Music Director for the non-profit organization Arts Aloud Theater Group. I have a BA in Music Education with an emphasis in voice. I've been teaching for 17 years in classroom and one-on-one settings. Other places where I have taught are: Calvary Chapel Downey School, Dexter Music Academy, and ABC Unified School District. I've been complimented on my ability to teach in a way that makes my students learn very quickly. I was trained in the classical and pop/rock genres. I've toured with choirs throughout China, and the United States (including Carnegie Hall), and I have also toured with rock/pop bands in Spain, Mexico, Central America, Peru, and throughout the U.S.A.

I've worked with various vocal coaches including Grammy-nominated Ilene
Graff, and Maxayn Lewis (who has worked with Celine Dion and Britney Spears).

I am also currently the lead singer (also playing guitar & piano) for the band Hello Human. I've worked with amazing musicians including Michael Thompson (guitarist for Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera), and John Robinson (drummer for Quincy Jones, Elton John). I've also had the honor of working with Wyn Davis (producer of No Doubt, Sublime).

My vocal recordings/original songs are on television show The Young & The Restless (“Dreamers” June 11th episode 11449, “High Tops” June 6th episode 11447).

My vocal recordings/original songs are currently on KWAVE 107.9 and have been on Alcoa Tennessee'™s Love 89.1, Refuge, CSN, WCTL, and on hundreds of other radio stations.

I divide my class into 4 parts: 1.Scales/Chords/Arpeggios/Warm-ups 2.Sight-Reading 3.Theory 4.Improvisation. Depending on the instrument of your choice, and also what your specific goals are, each of these parts are customized. You will learn quickly.

"Experienced violin teacher of 29 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical violin skills. I specialize in Suzuki , and fiddle Celtic music etc...,

About Kelvin
I am a highly organized, outcome-driven and motivated professional musician and educator with solid experience in the classroom. For the past 25 years, I have been employed with Amati music academy and seven years on the faculty of University of St Francis.
I am very comfortable with all aspects of the current music syllabus, including teaching musical concepts (such as duration, pitch, dynamics, tone color, texture and structure) as well as performance, composition. I am fully qualified, with a Bachelor of Education in Music, Double Masters in music performance and education from University of Nottingham.
I am proficient in classical, jazz and Celtic fiddle violin and possess solid skills in piano (grade 8-13) Royal conservatory system.
Throughout my teaching career, I have been driven to help students achieve their very best. I str
ongly believe that music has the power to change lives – to enhance the social, cultural and spiritual lives of people, and serve as a profound medium of personal expression. Professional perform experience: The Chicago, Natalie Cole, Smokey Robinson, Three tours with Moody Blues, YoYo Ma etc....
The most important thing I look for in a student is communication skills, as well as talent. I like to nurture students and help identify their individual strengths, which is a key factor in shaping a musical persona that will make its mark both on and offstage. I do not advocate a uniform technique for all students. Physical differences and learning styles are always taken into consideration. Potential is as important to me as early achievements and experience. My goal is to help students become self-sufficient, discriminating artists. I discuss practice techniques often and develop individualized scale routines. I encourage initiative and expressive musicality as well as precision. Above all, music needs to bring obvious joy to the student, regardless of the difficulties.”

I use Suzuki and traditional method for my students... for Suzuki beginner they will play a song in four days....

If you take lessons with me, you can expect progression! This takes top priority in my mind. It is very important for my students to know that I encourage keeping track of their progress on their chosen instruments. Setting goals and reaching them can be very satisfying! I recognize that every student has different skill levels and I will teach to the style that they best adapt to. One final note to add, they will be loved!

About Katie
At just 6 months old my mom discovered me humming “Silent Night”. By age 2, I would sit in the bathroom, holding aloft a Reader’s Digest from which I would “read” aloud, belting gibberish at the top of my lungs. Needless to say, my mother quickly enrolled me in the children’s performing group “Sunshine Generation”, since then its been 23 years of singing, dancing, acting, playing piano, playing guitar and playing the ukulele non-stop.

I love music and I love teaching! I have been studying the subject for decades now, two and half to be exact. First, in private lessons with wonderful teachers, then in Junior High, and High School. Then I entered the realms of college at Citrus, Riverside City College and received my Bachelors Degree in Commercial Music from Brigham Young University. I am a music composer. I write music, lyrics, and sco
re to Film/TV/promotional videos. I am currently on iTunes. I am loving and caring about the students I teach. I've had experience in teaching individual lessons to over 100+ students, singing with touring jazz orchestras, pop/rock groups and directing choirs.

Music is a lifestyle, and it is the lifestyle I love to live. If you want to learn your music skills, let me teach you! Im super fun and I will help you get to the next level! Thanks for reading this, I appreciate it. Don't you feel like you know me a little bit better?

Beginner violin; also performance prep for intermediate through advanced/professional

About Darrell
Why these lessons are different:
- Formally trained conductor/composer/producer
- Individual or group session options including full band production
- A long roster of satisfied clients
- Broad base of musical styles (rock, classical, jazz, blues, metal, bluegrass, folk, theater, big band, symphonic, pop, punk, country, march, gospel, avant-garde...)
- Over 20 yrs teaching experience and work with recognized professionals including work in some of the top-rated private schools in the United States
- Over 30 years performing experience

Instrument-specific instruction:
- Voice
- Guitar [Spanish, acoustic, electric]
- Electric Bass
- Piano/Keyboard
- Woodwinds [specializing in saxophones]
- Percussion
- Brass & Bowed Strings [performance preparation only]

My process is based on (but does not adhere strictly to
) the Classical approach to Western tonal harmony and asks that the students develop certain fundamentals of technique and theory. In my experience, this structure creates the strongest foundation for pupils to build the rest of their musical lives on, whether professionally or solely for personal enjoyment. All of my students are on the fast track to studying music theory. Whatever level they are at when I start with them, I guide their efforts into bringing the students up to a certain level of comprehension regarding the mathematical aspects of music and how it relates to their instruments. This understanding of theoretical principles of sound allows the students to play any style of music they wish, no matter how their tastes may change throughout their lives.

Curriculum Gradation:
Elements of rhythm
Elements of pitch
Elements of dynamics
Elements of articulation
Reading/Writing notation

Finding/Expanding your range

Darrell is great, not only does he get along with and make my son want to learn, but at the same time they are working on voice, he is also teaching keyboard and working on the guitar! We really couldn't have asked for a better instructor.

I focus on helping students discover a love for music and the violin that they will be able to cherish throughout their lives. Each student’s learning style is unique, and I adapt my teaching methods to the student’s needs and previous musical experience. I incorporate elements of the Suzuki method, which focuses on imitation and natural acquisition of music by ear, but also believe that learning to read music is essential and teach this from the very beginning.

Violin lessons will focus on technique and fundamentals in the context of the repertoire you are learning! You can expect to receive clear practice goals and I encourage a communicative dynamic among teacher and student.

About Patti
I am a professional violinist and violist based in New York City. I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in Violin Performance from New York University (with a minor in mathematics!) in 2010 and 2012, and am currently working on my Ph.D in Violin Performance at NYU.

As a teacher, I have taught students of all ages and levels of experience, ranging from beginner students to professional practitioners. I currently teach violin at Western Connecticut State University and New York University, and also maintain a private studio in the tristate area.

I believe that every student is different in how they progress and have a flexible approach to teaching, but do believe that awareness of technique and fundamentals is the key to progress. While working with me, students can expect clear guidelines regarding practice goals for a week,
and a communicative relationship between student and teacher. In an ideal teacher-student relationship, the student should always feel free to express to me if an approach is not working for them, or if they do not understand a concept explained in lessons! I am also willing to work with students regarding repertoire, and have experience with working with differently abled students.

As a performer, I make a point of engaging with a variety of classical and non-classical genres, including rock, pop, and jazz music. I currently play with an indie rock band called OWEL, and have also performed with contemporary music groups Alarm Will Sound, Argento New Music Project, ensemble mise-en, ETHEL, Hotel Elefant, Newspeak, Signal, The Wordless Music Orchestra, with the avant-rock Burning City Orchestra led by Noam Faingold, metal string quartet seven)suns, and the disco band Escort. I have also played in the company of a variety of artists spanning many genres, including Icelandic singer Björk, avant-jazz-funk band Medeski, Martin and Wood, Jonny Greenwood from Radiohead, the band Goldfrapp, Icelandic electronic artist Valgeir Sigurdsson, John Cale from the Velvet Underground, rock band Deep Purple, and Afro-Peruvian singer Eva Ayllón, in a variety of concert halls, bars, and living rooms, including Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Recital Center, Muziekgebouw a’ant Ij in Amsterdam, the Etihad Towers in Abu Dhabi, (Le) Poisson Rouge, Merkin Hall, Roulette, Issue Project Room, Galapagos, Symphony Space, and Death by Audio.

About Zeynep
Hello! My name is Zeynep Alpan and I am a Turkish-American violinist living in New York City. I completed my Bachelor's degree at The Juilliard School and now I am currently pursing my Master's Degree at Juilliard.

I have worked with education programs at the Juilliard School, the New York Philharmonic, the Nord Anglia International School in New York, the Aspen Music Festival and School, and the Kennedy Center.

Currently, I am a New York Philharmonic Teaching Artist Apprentice, a private violin teacher at Nord Anglia International School in New York, and a mentor for the Music Advancement Program at The Juilliard School.

For the past year, I have been a Teaching Artist at the Thurgood Marshall Academy Lower School. I have also privately taught at the Aspen Music festival and School (P.A.L.S program). I have worked with the Ed
ucation Programs at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. while being a National Symphony Orchestra Youth Fellow.

I absolutely love teaching and helping students find their own unique musical voice and musicianship. Every student learns in their own way, has their own needs and their own goals. As a dedicated teacher, I make sure to tailor each lesson to meet all the student's specific needs in order to help and guide them in becoming the best musician that they can be!

Below is my Biography, so you can get to know me a little bit more!

-- Zeynep Alpan Biography --

Turkish American violinist, Zeynep A, started studying the violin at the age of 5 as part of her music therapy treatment for her diagnosis of speech delay and Auditory Processing Disorder. Almost immediately after being introduced to the violin, Zeynep began to speak and following a year and a half of violin studies, she had her first solo appearance with Vivaldi’s A minor Violin Concerto, after winning the Peabody Concerto Competition.

As a soloist, chamber, and orchestral musician, Zeynep has appeared in a myriad of venues such as Carnegie Hall, Royal Albert Hall, Kennedy Center Concert Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Moscow Conservatory Great Hall, Mariinsky II Theatre, and Strathmore Hall. Future engagements include performing as a soloist with the Presidential Symphony Orchestra of Turkey during their 2019 USA Tour and recording a CD with the Turkish recording label, Lila Muzik.

Zeynep is the first prize winner in many competitions, some of which include the Juilliard Concerto Competition, the Dorothy DeLay Fellowship Competition at the Aspen Music Festival and School, the National Philharmonic Concerto Competition, and the Goldie and Feder Memorial String Competition. Additionally, in 2015, Zeynep was awarded the Ataturk Youth Achievement Award by the Ataturk Society of America in Washington DC.

Zeynep is currently pursuing her master’s degree at the Juilliard School as a recipient of the Ahmet Ertegun Scholarship, the C.V. Starr Scholarship, and the Molly Frank and Aliki Perroti Scholarship under the tutelage of Naoko Tanaka. Former teachers have included Oleg Rylatko, Aaron Rosand and Shirley Givens.

Community outreach and service has played an important part in Zeynep’s musical life. In 2013, Zeynep co-founded the group Sonatas Stopping Starvation. The project uses musical excellence to help develop citizens and leaders within the arts and the greater community. Their mission is to be of service as artists and citizens to organizations that work to fight hunger. Along with a school-wide food drive, they gave their first benefit concert in November 2013 at the Juilliard School. Zeynep is also a Morse Teaching Artist Fellow, a Gluck Community Service Fellow, and a Music Advancement Program Fellow.

As a Turkish American, Zeynep receives frequent invitations to perform in major music halls in Turkey. She was featured at age 9 on Turkish National Television while performing works of Kreisler and Massanet and she has worked with the violinist Cihat Askin in Cihat Askin and Friends project (CAKA) with performances including the opening gala of Istanbul Toy Museum.

Aside from music, Zeynep enjoys taking business classes at Columbia University through the Barnard-Columbia-Juilliard Exchange program, drinking tea, biking, and being an avid dog lover.

My daughter had the pleasure of taking lessons with Zeynep this past summer in the PALS program in Aspen. She loved each week when it was lesson time. This is what Addison had to say, "She always would say the area I needed to work on nicely. I loved that she gave me knew things to learn at each lesson. If I didn't understand, she would keep encouraging me until I did." This was an excellent experience!

I am here to guide you in developing your foundational technique while exploring any creative projects you might have in mind. I am Suzuki Certified (Books 1 & 2) - though I pull from a range of methodologies in my lesson curriculum. Working with each student as a unique individual is my highest priority.

I will work with you on note reading, sight reading, rhythm, improvisation, guided composition (yes, on your violin!) - I am here to help you with whatever your goal may be. I work with both beginning and advanced students,
and offer instruction to students following both experimental and classical paths.

I am big on music being for ALL ages and ALL abilities, and I want to help you integrate your love for music + your violin into your daily life.

More about me:

From 2008 - 2012 I studied with Monte Belknap, head of the Violin Performance program at Brigham Young University. Professor Belknap is constantly innovating new ways to approach technique, and I value this approach in my own teaching. As a teacher, I model Professor Belknap's sense of innovation, while also drawing upon my collaborative experiences with various artists in my community. These approaches richly inform my process with my students.

Alyssa is a wonderful teacher and a professional player. Studying with her is efficient. She has a keen sense of detail, knowing what is most important to focus on for the next lesson. Her careful instruction reaches well beyond the violin as she teaches musicianship and ear-training. She'll prepare you for real-world playing at any experience level.

Alyssa is truly such an inspiring and helpful person to work with as a teacher. She knows her instrument so well, like it’s a close friend she has known for years, and is so easy to feel comfortable with as a student. She’s helping me develop a more personal relationship with how I perform and how compose that feels more like an extension of who I am. I am more well-rounded, confident, and equipped to engage with new musical challenges because of our time together each week. I cannot recommend her enough.

Alyssa is a patient and kind teacher. She has experience not just as an teacher/student but as a writer/composer too. Her connection to the violin challenges me to do better and try harder, but somehow still makes the classes fun! I've found learning from her to be very rewarding (I'm finally checking off that new year's resolution to learn the violin!) but if it weren't for her great attitude and patient demeanor I would be lost. I'm only on my third class, can't wait for more.
