Hi! My name is Yana, and I am a Junior at UCLA pursuing a B.A. in Psychology and a Music Industry Minor. I have been playing the piano since I was six, and learning new music is still my absolute favorite thing to do. I have been performing in competitions, master classes, galas, and concerts for ten years. I have apprenticed for a professional performer and music instructor, and I currently teach my own students of all ages and experience levels. My goal is to create a learning space that makes music fun and rewarding, while providing a framework for performance and practice techniques best suited to my students' abilities. I create personalized lesson plans and provide materials for each of my students, instead of having them work exclusively from a book. I consider his or her experience level, favorite genres and artists, and personal goals to custom tailor materials. I teach all styles of music, including classical, jazz, and contemporary. I also teach composition and songwriting to students who want to create their own projects. My lesson plans include learning the skills listed below and more! Reading music: Learning to read notes, interpret rhythm and time signatures Technique: Learning proper form and technical exercises Music theory: The fundamentals of music theory, including learning to play scales, chords, and arpeggios Performance: Emphasis on the interpretation of pieces, with special attention to dynamics and ornaments Broadening repertoire: Through the exploration of different genres, the student becomes familiar with the flow and elements of composition that define musical styles Musical Composition and Improvisation: Advancing music theory understanding to include principles of composition, such as the formation of chords and melodies within a key signature. I travel to students in the Santa Monica / Westwood / Beverly Hills area, and I also offer remote lessons. Feel free to reach out to me with any questions you may have, I would love to hear from you!See more

Phenomenal guitar teacher who is extremely genuine about his work with you. Michael also makes a lesson plan that suits your needs, and the best part is he goes at your learning pace, not rushing you into anything you aren’t ready for. He has also inspired me to want to play the guitar even after just one lesson. Highly recommend!

Scott is an excellent teacher. He knows how to make lessons easy to learn and will teach you based on the kind of music you like to listen to. I've played for three years but his guidance has definitely opened me up to new ways of playing and has inspired me to get back into playing my guitar regularly again.
