Stephan was a joy. The tuning went smoothly and I had my first piano lesson immediately following it. His breadth of knowledge is very impressive and his sensitivity to the gaps in mine made me feel very comfortable and helped with my own particular learning curve. I would highly recommend Stephan as a tuner and a teacher...

I was, no, am so impressed with every aspect of Mr. Snydman's lessons. Need I say more? Yes! In addition to his musical knowledge, he is a genuinely kind caring person.

I started taking drum lessons later in life as I've always wanted to learn. After a great birthday present from a friend I started lessons with Mike. He is great at listening to what I wanted to learn and was very, very patient with me. I've always had trouble reading music but he taught me in no time and made the lessons very fun and interesting. He let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and he would even play along to help me get it right! Mike is a very talented drummer, musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the drums, he'll have you playing in no time!!

Amazing experience! I have been doing Skype Drum Lessons for several months, every week it is a way for me to connect my mind with my body. For me it is medatative and is working better than yoga. Highly recommend the experience as a way to connect too mindfulness.

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 didn’t know a good teacher so I asked around. Howard’s name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howard’s 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, I’m 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 Howard’s influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. I’m confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.

I’d been wanting to learn how to play drums since high school but just never got around to it. A friend recommended Geo highly and I finally bit the bullet and started lessons. I am so glad I did!!! Geo is such a great teacher — really patient, and responsive to my needs as a student. I work full time and Geo is always flexible. I am also not as young as I used to be and not a fast learner, but Geo is super patient and is always coming up with exercises and pieces to learn that are more my speed. He’s also so fun and just a cool dude — 10/10 recommend!!!

Michael has a very straight forward approach to teaching. Whether it was answering a technique question or developing new ways to manuever around the set, each lesson consisted of my thoroughly learning new information in a practical and very efficient manner. Being a percussionist myself, we naturally have good rapport with the language we communicate with. Michael's way of personal interaction alongside his instrument is certainly one of the best forays into any practice and study of music, for those just starting or already proficient.

My daughter Shavanie has been with at SoundCheck for about two months. First off I must say Dan & Electra are very friendly and down to earth people. My daughter does Vocal & Piano lessons with Electra, she is one of the best music coach my daughter has worked with so far...... I am amazed by her progress. She also does Guitar lessons with Josh, who is also amazing...she is finally enjoying her guitar :) Since my daughter has been with SoundCheck she has shown more excitement towards music vocally and instrumentally. I can't thank them enough! :-) I truly recommend SoundCheck, you will not regret it.

Every Friday I'm at GoDpsMusic for my drum lesson. Definitely my favorite day of the week! The atmosphere is excellent! The acoustic and electronic drum kits in the lesson studios are the best. If you want to schedule a lesson or purchase equipment, I strongly recommend GoDpsMusic. Kevin, Brendan, Bryan, Steve and Robbie are the "go-to" guys at GoDpsMusic.

About

In addition to being technically proficient, I was raised by the music of dc so in my playing one can hear a spectrum of different feels from high energy hardcore and punk tempos to the slow pocket of dc's indigenious groove music, go go.

About

Olesya’s Story Music Teacher LA came to an existence out of one incredibly skilled teacher’s and musician’s 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 Master’s 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 children’s 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 Brockovich’s 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 Olesya’s 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 Olesya’s life. Olesya’s 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 didn’t 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 I’ll 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 girl’s 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. Olesya’s 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. After several years in the private piano teaching in the US, rather overwhelmed by demand for someone of her talent and teaching skills, Olesya assembled music teachers with her caliber of credentials and expertise under one roof and named it “Music Teacher LA”. It is not easy to become a Music Teacher LA teacher. Of all the musicians Olesya interviews who wish to join the team, only 2% meet her rigorous standards of: ?Advanced music education ?Professional musical accomplishments ?Education and experience in teaching ?The special and unique type personality and creativity that motivates students ?THE BURNING DESIRE TO TEACH vs. MAKE MONEY TEACHING MUSIC Music Teacher LA today offers music lessons on all instruments and voice, expert piano tuning, and music summer camps.

I act on a one to one basis. Treating each person as an individual with specific needs and abilities. So wether its drum kit lessons where i work on your favorite styles of music. To the deeper drum workshops geared to help people at different stages in life. Then deeper still with the gong and tuning fork work. Which is specific for each person as we all vibrate in a different way.

About

My teaching career began in high school when I would teach other high school and middle school students drum lessons. Upon graduating, I continued my music studies at two different institutions. I have a B.A. in jazz studies from Florida State University and an M.F.A. in jazz studies from the California Institute of the Arts. Total, I have over seven years of experience as a private instructor. I am able to teach drum set, classical and rudimental snare drum and Latin percussion lessons. I have had experience in teaching students with ages ranging from 5-56. In addition to teaching percussion, I can teach music theory, jazz keyboard theory, composition and beginning piano and guitar students. Some of my former students have gone on to study music performance at colleges, such as Florida State University, The University of Miami, Louisiana State University and The University of Alabama.
