We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!
I highly recommend GreenTree and Sidney!! Coordinating piano lessons and other artistic endeavors with Sidney was an effortlesss and pleasant task. He made it happen and initiated some remarkable lessons. GreenTree is on speed dial for our next visit to OC.
I am 57 years old (no Spring chicken) and came to Thomas for tenor sax lessons. My purpose is to perform and record sax solos for classic rock and blues. Thomas does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me a road map to achieve them. Very patient and intuitive.
I took private adult saxophone lessons from Richard for almost one year. Thanks to his guidance, I started with almost zero know how to playing pieces like Desafinado, Take Five, and Peter Gunn Theme with excellent tonality. He has his own unique style of teaching that really catapults you to success quickly within a short amount of time. Regrettably, I moved up to San Francisco so will be unable to continue lessons with him. Highly recommend him for private lessons
I wanted a teacher that could work with an older adult who not had piano lessons since childhood. After many years, I wanted to challenge myself by getting back into piano and I wanted to bring music back into my life. I was a bit nervous about making the commitment and about the time investment that would be required. I also didnt know a good teacher so I asked around. Howards name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howards approach is not the conventional one that I experienced as a child. He presents many types of approaches and uses lots of tools and techniques to build your skills and understanding of the structure of music. Now, Im stretching myself to learn, remember and apply these skills and it feels really good! I actually enjoy practicing my piano. Now thats a testimony to Howards influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. Im confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.
I started taking saxophone lessons with Rick at the end of my last year of high school and I am studying with him during my summer break from college. I worked with him for 4 months before I left to college and as soon as I got there, I was able to start playing in a band and play songs and take solos with a drummer and guitar player. We are just playing for fun but I'm having a great time being able to really play. One of the best things about Rick's method of teaching is how fast you can learn to do what I thought were really difficult things on the saxophone. He has some great drills and warmups to get you to learn correct form and teach you how to play musically in very early stages. I wanted to learn how to improvise jazz so I started learning his system which simplified everything about improvising and I found was so easy and effective in learning how to improvise by ear. He also teaches you how to mix 8th, 16th and triplet rhythms and incorporate these rhythms into your solos. After a while, I began to be able to play things without thinking about what I was doing which was kind of amazing! I also know how to use bluesy concepts, articulations, dynamics and we're working on putting it all together and learn how to play more songs this summer. Learning from Rick's method was so easy. I was afraid at first that it would be too challenging to grasp and it would be an uphill battle, but I was so happy with how fast I was able to play at a good level. If you want a good saxophone teacher that you can really learn how to play real music in a very short amount of time, I highly recommend Rick.
I just started piano lessons with Dr. Batista and already can see her professionalism and love for what she does. Classes are structured, on time, and fun. I look forward to every class in the future.
I’ll have more to say as lessons begin.
Brian was very patience and extremely helpful with setting us up with a piano teacher. We just finished our first lesson with our kids and Naomi is great! She seems very knowledgeable with piano. My kids were able to warm up to her quickly and that's not easy process. We will definitely be continuing our lessons!
My son started taking piano lessons from Kelly a year and half ago. Since then, he has blossomed. We'd tried a franchise center before discovering Kelly but quickly discovered that a minimum of piano playing is actually done there. At 7, he needed the basics first and she made it so easy and fun for him. Now 9, he took and passed the ABRSMs at Cal State LA last fall, becoming one of the youngest to do so out of 600 students. Recitals are offered twice a year, allowing kids to present their work to an audience. The kids enjoy playing, thanks to her patience, passion and persistence. We highly recommend Kelly Pedroza and Elite Musique.
I had my first lesson with Tim and it was more than I could have imagined. He has a calm way about his teaching that makes me anticipate our next session. I am so glad that Tim offered to be my instructor. - Bishop Christopher F. Bays, Sr.
Sam is the sax instructor for my son Milo. Most importantly, Milo loves Sam and looks forward to the lessons... he is inspired to practice and look good at the lesson which is very helpful. Sam is kind and friendly and funny and has greatly improved my son's playing. I feel fortunate to have Sam teaching my son, and I recommend him highly.
Oliver took me on as a student returning to the clarinet after 60 years! Building on a positive experience of having played in my high school band in the '50's, Oliver is guiding me back into the enjoyment of learning music. He is patient yet challenging, promoting excellence of tone and technique. His ability to teach with a light touch and a sense of humor makes being his student a genuine pleasure. Then, too, for a senior person, the brain fitness benefit is a real bonus.

Olesyas Story Music Teacher LA came to an existence out of one incredibly skilled teachers and musicians passion for music and teaching, her creative ability to motivate and excite students, and her desire to spread the love of music and learning to musically inclined children and adults. Olesya MacNeil is the founder of the Music Teacher LA. As a child she studied piano and voice and took her first piano lessons from her mother at age 5. Olesya attended a music school in the former Soviet Union for 7 years and then pursued her Masters in Music, Psychology and Pedagogy at the Omsk State University in Russia. During her years at the university, Olesya performed on stage, on the radio, and worked with musically gifted children from the local schools. During her years of study, Olesya completed extensive research on childrens intelligence relative to the study of music. After immigrating to the US in 1997, Olesya continued teaching music. She taught the children of Larry King, Billy Baldwin, Dan Beckerman (the alternate governor of LA Kings),Susannah Grant (who won the Oscar for Erin Brockovichs movie script), Bennett Schneir (the producer of many known animation films),and many other established film producers, screenwriters, political leaders, sportsmen, owners of sport teams and financial CEOs. Olesya also worked with special needs kids. Working with children was the most incredible gift for Olesya. She was very popular and sought after teacher. The families she worked with were referring each other to Olesya and they were meeting and building new friendships at Olesyas recital parties. Olesya worked 7 days a week, providing at one point a total of 53 in-home private lessons each week. Olesya has been traveling to her students and working 12 to 16 hours each day, including weekends. Olesya wished to teach fewer students, but she created such close ties with all the families, the families knew each other, they all liked Olesya, and thus Olesya simply could not quit any student without offending the family. Olesya has been teaching each student for 6-7 years on average. During such long period of time, her students goals and achievements became part of Olesyas life. Olesyas experiences working with different people were a book to write. Olesya once taught a beautiful 7 year old girl with amazingly big and sad blue eyes. The girl was the oldest child of 5 children in the religious family. She loved her piano lessons. She rarely practiced. When Olesya asked her why she didnt practice she honestly said that she really wanted, but her mom asked her to hold her newborn sister This 7 year old really enjoyed playing the piano, but sometimes she would question why she should learn the piano or anything else, Because I will be married the moment Ill finish the school. My family will find someone for me. I will never go to work and will have many children. Olesya was using all her creative ideas to ignite this little girls desire to learn and feel unique and important. This little girl can grow and help her own children love and understand music in the future. Olesya developed individual homework method for each of her students to encourage them to practice. Olesya was satisfied seeing her students succeed and happy to learn more and more. Olesyas recital parties were very inspiring and fun. She would rent a mansion or a large house of one of her students. She would break all her students into 15 performers per recital. One of her students baked cupcakes, where each cupcake was a music measure from a famous opera. Olesya trained her students how to successfully perform and overcome their shyness in recitals. Her methods worked. There were happy moments in students lives when they performed in recitals and students parents saw their achievements. Olesya has been saving her students drawings, essays, sayings, photos She has saved it as very precious items from her life.
