Emma M. Cypress, CA

About Emma

I started my music education at the age of 7, at the Odessa College of Music in Ukraine. At age 16 I was accepted to the highly prestigious Odessa University of Music, where later I received my BA degree in Piano Pedagogy and Performance, Summa Cum Laude. I then decided to further my education and take a 2 year Piano Performance course at the Odessa Conservatory. For over 25 years thereafter, I am teaching students of all ages. I look to develop problem solving, multitasking and other intangible life skills for my younger students through the power of music. For my adult students, I look to reduce stress and keep their brains working like new. Regardless of age, I work very hard to improve all of my student's memory, brain function, coordination and most importantly teach them how to ...

We love Ms. Emma! My boys have been taking lessons with Ms. Emma for over a year. Ms. Emma is so patient, yet firm with them. She understands their very different personalities and adapts lessons to their differing personalities, styles, and needs. She appreciates their individuality and works from there. As a result, they have learned so much! Thank you Ms. Emma!

Excellent teacher for all age groups and skill levels.

As a senior, I started taking piano lessons about 1 year ago. Emma is very patient in her teaching. She gives encouragement and motivation when needed. Her musical knowledge and talent is amazing. I learned much more than I thought possible.

A great piano teacher is the key to success - at any age.

It is with great pleasure that I review my piano teacher of one year, Emma M. I took a few months lessons at age 7 and a few months in my teens and again in my 20s. After being separated from a piano for 30 years, I knew I had to get back to the music I always yearned to play. I searched TakeLessons.com for a piano teacher, and Emma M.'s resume caught my attention. Emma M. understands the adult learner. She helps me focus on what is important as an adult learning to play piano. Emma helps me to set goals, and she focuses my lessons on those goals. Emma M. is a professional educator who understands the human condition, and she puts her knowledge to practice. I am grateful to have found a knowledgeable, dedicated, encouraging, and motivating teacher in Emma M. I feel I have progressed, and I look forward to many more years of learning piano with Emma M.
Michael C. Huntington Beach, CA

About Michael

Hi! My name is Michael and I am excited at the prospect of teaching you or your child... I absolutely love to teach, but not just because of my love for the drums or my life-long appreciation of music, but because of my enjoyment of people and the learning process itself. I feel that this is important to mention, because if I didn't enjoy what I did and take pride in working with people, then my teaching skills, curriculum, and experience would mean nothing. As anybody who has played a musical instrument can attest to, learning something new is difficult, and having a patient teacher who enjoys working with people is mandatory. Throughout my life, I have had the opportunity to study with some amazing teachers, including Carmine Appice (author of “Realistic Rock” and drummer for ...

Definitely the best drum teacher ever!

I received a package of drum lessons for Mike in 2008, for my 12th birthday. I loved them and learned a great deal, but soon I ran out of lessons. A few years later, I was able to continue drum lessons in early 2011, until about July of 2013. During this time, Mike was never at a lack of content, in fact he had a fun worksheet for almost any style of drumming you want! Mike is great at teaching every style; rock, jazz, metal, and much more! I had a great experience, and Mike was a wonderful teacher! I was forced to put a pause on my lessons again in 2013 because I was busy starting my senior year of high school, and balancing a job. At the end of that year, I used some of the money I had saved up to continue my lessons throughout the Summer of 2014. It was well worth every penny!


Mike is a great teacher, for any age! His fun style of teaching allows you to learn, and want to practice as you are mastering even some of the toughest exercises. Over the six years I have known him, he has become more of a friend than a teacher! I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to play drums.

Mike is an awesome teacher who takes interest in each student's personality and is able to customize the learning experience accordingly. My son is only 6 and yet he is making excellent progress and always enjoys his lessons. Mike makes sure there is always a personal connection and that makes the student comfortable and confident in playing music. He is always attentive to detail and is able to pinpoint what the student needs to work on and therefore there is always an improvement in technique. We were referred to him by a friend and are very happy with our decision to enroll our son. Highly recommended!
Jill Z. Huntington Beach, CA

About Jill

What will music lessons do for you? Problem solving and Memorization: My students learn problem solving skills that they need to help them practice their instruments efficiently. Music helps students develop more areas of their brains and increases the capacity for better memory and problem solving. The skills they learn in their lessons can be applied to how they study for school and aid in memorization techniques. Music can also be similar to solving puzzles and putting it all together. Can't read music yet? Skills learned: I teach students how to read music and music theory as they learn their instruments. Students learn how to perform for audiences and play for their own enjoyment. They learn how to work with other musicians and learn about stage presence for ...

Dustin C. Fountain Valley, CA

About Dustin

I love being a teacher, but even more than just that, I thoroughly enjoy assisting others on their journey to learning and making music a personal experience for themselves. Having said that, here is my teaching philosophy, including what you can expect from me as a teacher and as an individual: PHILOSOPHY OF TEACHING Each student who comes to me is an individual. I customize each lesson, keeping in mind the student’s level of interest, goals, and intent. I put great care into judging when to push, when to pull back, and when to stop altogether and regroup. Sometimes there is frustration and as a teacher it is very important to take that experience and turn it into a positive learning situation. During the course of a lesson, we’ll take a "breather" and simply talk about ...

Things are going great with our piano lessons. The lessons material Dustin selected is excellent. We had hoped for an easy and slow start and that is what we are getting.

When I started taking lessons with Dustin, my goals were to improve my ability to play the piano, strengthen my ear, and to have a deeper understanding of music theory. Starting from our first lesson Dustin had a lesson plan already mapped out that would help me accomplish my goals. Now when I play piano, I have the ability to play and write songs with much less effort. The ear training Dustin provided has brought me to the point that I can identify chords and intervals in music clearly. With a good foundation of theory established, being assigned harmonic analysis of a musical piece is not a daunting task. Overall, I have been very happy with Dustin's style of teaching and plan to continue taking lessons with him.

Very patient talented teacher.

Very thorough teacher with lots of patience and a great passion for music. My daughter was playing one of her favorite songs in no time. He encouraged my daughter and was super patient with her, she really looked forward to her lessons every week. I also appreciated his professionalism and his true love of music, it really shines when he's teaching his students. I would recommend him highly.

My lesson with Matthew was great. Even though I have experience with music he was able to help me out with small habits that I needed help breaking. Great teacher really well versed in different styles of music as well as small techniques which will help me build and become a better piano player.
