I understand that each person learns differently and has different musical goals. Because of this, I do not teach everyone the same. I do not teach out of any specific book or teaching program. Instead I design lessons around the student and their own personal style and goals. I feel that this creates a more motivating and driven curriculum and makes lessons more enjoyable for myself and my students.

I have been teaching professionally in the area for the past 6 years, and have been playing and studying the guitar since I was 11 years old.

Andrew is an excellent instructor. He is really knowledgeable in music theory. I took lessons for only a short time but was able to learn so much, because he used my knowledge of piano to help me understand guitar concepts and he focused on the techniques and songs that I was most interested in.

Alignment is the basis a great technique. Each person is different, and knowing how to help them release unwanted tension is critical.

The vocal folds are the core of the sound, and must be given the utmost care and consideration. Proper hydration is essential. They are also muscles, that need strengthening exercises and time for them to change. This will improve your vocal endurance and range. As a highly trained voice teacher, I can hear if the vocal folds are behaving in a healthy and efficient manner. It is essential that your teacher understand how to care for these delicate components of the human voice.

Vocal resonance is how opera singers are heard without amplification. It can be enhanced through awareness and coordination of the various portions of the vocal tract. There are two main components that help magnify the sound. The pharynx, also known as the throat, and the soft palate. Having an open throat and lift soft palate not only help your boost the ...

I had such an amazing experience taking voice lessons with Zarina. She has an incredible voice and unmatched talent. She is a skilled and patient teacher. Her techniques are very professional.

If you want a teacher who will teach you how to play the piano correctly (fundamentals, technique, not just playing the right notes) from the start, then you've come to right place.

My philosophy of music is to foster a love of music in every student, work together as a partnership, and most of all, to have fun! I believe everyone can learn to play the piano and there is no required talent.

I have seven years of experience teaching all ages, from age 3 to over eighty. I have taught over 100 students and can teach all levels and abilities. I do recitals, masterclasses and exam testing, all of which are available to the student, if they want. I specialize in teaching adults and childhood music.

I graduated from Cal State Fullerton with my Master's Degree in Piano Pedagogy. I graduated in 2017 with my Bachelors in Music from UC Irvine. I studied with Nina Scolnik, a Juilliard graduate and an outstanding piano pedagogue. I recently received the Tierney Scholarship at UCI.

About Katarina

When I took piano lessons as a kid, little did I know that my teacher was not actually teaching me anything. For years. It wasn’t until well after I had left that teacher that I realized I was far behind other people. Why should that matter to you? A quality teacher will save you hundreds,

I only just started learning piano with Katarina and she was wonderful. She was very patient with me and taught me at the pace that I wanted to go at. I learned a lot and definitely plan on continuing my lessons with her as soon as I can!
Michelle
My 9 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Katarina for the past 3 months. She really enjoys the lessons with Katarina and has learned a lot! Katarina works very well with my daughter and is very pleasant, patient and thorough with her lessons.

Katarina is always on time and very flexible with scheduling which I truly appreciate considering my work and my other children's activities.

We have had a great experience with Katarina and would highly recommend her!

"I learnt music theory and improvisation with Charles for 4 months in New York.

Charles is highly approachable and extremely knowledgeable. He walks the perfect line between making his students feel comfortable whilst also pushing them to become better in every single session.

I got a solid grasp of the basics of music theory and was able to fully improvise in different scales at the end of the course. The growth I had was tremendous - all thanks to Charles' guidance.

Charles will take the time to fully understand the needs, goals and struggles of his students. He will be there for them inside and outside of class time because he genuinely cares about music and his students becoming better."
