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.
My daughter started violin lessons and we couldn't be more pleased with the instruction she is receiving. Ms. Eunji is very patient and thorough. It was easy to schedule classes and the prices are reasonable. It is a plus that they offer lessons on the weekends as well. My daughter also decided to take the robotics and she is super thrilled with what she learning in there.
The first year I started taking cello lessons from Ms. Arlette, I won a $300 scholarship from Los Angeles City Elementary Schools Music Association. Ms. Arlette has helped me learn more advanced music, and her way of teaching is very clear and easy to understand. She emphasizes on technique, sight-reading, and musicality, all of which, through her guidance, I have greatly improved on. She is a very kind and patient teacher who takes time to explain concepts thoroughly. She is also a fun teacher. I have been taking lessons from Ms. Arlette for the past four years. I enjoy my lessons and recitals.
Azi is a wonderful teacher! I was a bit nervous to start beginner piano lessons as an adult, but Azi has made the experience comfortable and fun! Azi is both patient and motivating. I highly recommend her for adults and kids alike!
I am so glad to have found Jessica. She is patient, observant, helpful, and so encouraging. I was unsure how online cello lessons would work, but this is the ideal format for me. Jessica is able to observe form and offer gentle suggestions as well as instruction on sound. I highly recommend Jessica and am sure that with her help, even an old, slow returning cellist will soon be enjoying playing complex music. Finally, Jessica has been very flexible with my crazy schedule lately. An awesome person and great instructor.
My 13 year old daughter has been taking lessons from Jenna for over 6 months. She selected and coached her through an audition piece that enabled her to successfully be selected for the advanced symphony group of our local youth orchestra . Jenna is friendly, reliable, and excellent at teaching cello technique and problem solving. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent cello teacher.
My son can't wait for the next semester of his alternative string group (ASG) to start up again! Jacob has taught him so much about being creative and passionate about the violin and music, which has been a liberating complement to years of school orchestra. SPLA is a unique program with the most positive and inspiring teachers possible- so thankful to be a part of it!
I’m an undergraduate student at USC and I’ve been playing cello for more than five years, although I’ve taken lessons for less than two. I’ve worked with Juliette for about seven months, and it has been a worthwhile learning experience. I recommend Juliette as a cello instructor to anyone committed to studying the cello. Juliette works with me for one hour per week, and each lesson, we work on scales, exercises, and pieces. She varies the amount of time we spend on each depending on what she believes I need attention that week. The exercises emphasized strength and flexibility in each hand as well as bow control, shifting, and thumb position. She is very patient with my progress (and the occasional lack of it); there have been times when I struggled to develop the correct technique, rhythm, or concept for a particular piece, passage, or exercise, and she didn’t get frustrated as some other teachers do. When we work on pieces, Juliette provides many valuable insights regarding note articulation, phrasing, bowing, and more. She has helped me on reading rhythms, subdividing, training my ears, and learning music theory. Juliette is a talented performing cellist, so she is busy with her own practicing and performances, but she is flexible and accommodating. Whenever she needs to travel for a performance, she lets me know well ahead of time so we can plan around her schedule as well as mine. There have been many weeks when something unexpected came up in my schedule, and she was able to reschedule our lesson. Her flexibility helps me keep on schedule with my goals in music as well as focus on my other responsibilities when they are overwhelming. Juliette is always on time for my lessons and hasn’t canceled any without notifying me days in advance. Her prices are also reasonable given her level of education. During our lessons, Juliette often reminds me that, “You are your best teacher” because she only sees me once per week, whereas I am with myself whenever I practice. However, given the opportunity to work with an instructor, Juliette is an excellent choice.
A SENSE OF CARING. AND THE FACT THAT I AM 71 AND SHE FELT THAT TEACHING ME THE CELLO WOULD BE A POSITIVE EXPERIENCE FOR ME.
My son has been taking music lessons from Ms. Plasencia for 3 years now. He is learning to play the piano and violin. We rent a violin from Ms. Plasencia which makes things very convenient. Jonah has always loved music and he enjoys learning to play new songs. Ms. Plasencia has a wonderful way of working with kids. She is very patient and knows just how far she can push my son but still keep his love of music alive and well! I am so glad we found Ms. Plasencia!
Very great teacher, so sweet!! He's teaching my son piano and my son has so much fun at their lessons.
I’d highly recommend Thomas. He plays beautifully, explains things well, and gives homework that is both manageable and enjoyable.
