My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

Private Piano Teacher

I'm a piano, voice, and songwriting teacher with over 10 years experience in teaching, playing, singing, and musical directing!
I teach classical, rock, broadway, pop, and improvisational piano. I teach voice for musical theatre as well. I’m always able to get my students to a higher level quickly, while making sure they have fun and make their own discoveries about the music they’re approaching along the way.
I’ve been the musical director of a youth theatre program for 10 years, and a piano and voice teacher at a music studio in LA for around 2 years as well.

I love to inspire the artist within every student, and to make them believe they can play anything. I often try to sneak more musical knowledge into a lesson than what is typically presented at their level, since I believe everyone can musically accomplish a whole lot more than what they might think they’re capable of at first.

I love to help people understand their own unique musical inspiration, and to help them be drawn

I've always had an interest in music, but never had any formal training. Laurel's tutelage has taken me from an absolute novice who could barely plink out a few notes to being able to read and play along with sheet music. She's employs a very collaborative style of teaching wherein we work together to identify the kinds of music I want to play, and make regularly progress towards reaching my goals. It's been a fantastic experience.
Kevin
I decided to wait until middle age to begin taking piano lessons so that my brain would be as resistant as possible to learning.

I'm glad I found a teacher as patient, friendly and knowledgable as Laurel. I've been taking lessons with her for almost a year. She tailors the sessions to my spooky interests and encourages me to push my abilities.

When we began I had barely touched a piano in my life. Now I'm able to read sheet music, recognize relative pitches and play a list of my favorite songs with independent hand movement.

I'd recommend Laurel to anyone who wants to learn piano regardless of age or skill level.
Ritu
Laurel has been my kid's piano teacher for a little over four years now. My kids absolutely love her, and I think that is what makes the difference because I want my kids to enjoy taking lessons. Laurel is very knowledgeable and patient. She makes sure students learn both reading music and playing by ear. My kids have come a long way with reading music and playing the piano, and I think a big reason is because of Laurel.

John is a fantastic instructor. He has a love for educating others on musical expression and he is a wellspring of musical knowledge. He provides a depth to the piano that I wouldn't have noticed if I taught myself how to play.

John emphasized how to shape musical phrases to make music as opposed to a collection of notes. He had a good ear for honing in on my weaknesses such as how some notes that I played stuck out or the movement of my arms. Most importantly, he taught me how to approach practicing the piano in an effective way. I learned how to listen to myself and how give each note, phrase, and piece the attention and musicality it needed to sound beautifully.

For an adult learner as myself, he was accommodating with how busy I was. He adjusted to my needs and work schedule and taught at a reasonable pace. However, he also never veered from his expectations and praised what I was doing right and provided methods to fix what I was doing wrong.

Although there were times when John expressed his passion for music by delving into tangents on the broader historical significance of pieces, his mini-lectures were never irrelevant nor inappropriate. For example, he commented on how in waltzes, the rhythm on the left hand would need to emulate how a Romantic era string section would play it. For anyone who is serious about how or why pieces of music are meant to be played in a certain way, John is great about contextualizing pieces to make them sound great.

Most importantly, he made practicing piano something that was both enjoyable and challenging, which is difficult to find in a teacher. I owe a great deal of my musicianship to John and he met my expectations of learning the piano. Thank you!
Kenny
John is really great. He takes the time to understand what your goals are and teaches according to your needs. He is patient and provides constructive comments.

I've been taking lessons for 3 years now with Ahmad. My guitar ambitions are frequently met with technical and musical obstacles, and Ahmad has always helped me work through them and keep me moving forward.

I have also been working on music theory and basic guitar chords - Ahmad has helped guide me to a better understanding and technical proficiency.

Lessons are conducted in a friendly and supportive way and his positive attitude plays a vital role in motivating me to keep working at guitar. I think no matter what your guitar goals are, Ahmad can help you move improve and keep taking it to the next level.

She tailors her sessions to fit students’ interests which is highly motivating and has practical explanations (and fun for children) for theoretical applications and gives great rational to keep you practicing. My two daughters have taken lessons for over 2.5 years (they are now 6 and 9). gfire’s Patience and energy has been wonderful - they WANT to keep taking lessons and I highly recommend her!

As an adult, she asked my goals and suggested that we build in some music I played as a child—that we could find easier formats of the songs or find easier pieces within that childhood piano book. I like that Molly has availability on weekends too because it is hard for me to be across town after work."

"Randy is super helpful and experienced. I enjoy lessons and practicing. He was able to assess my lifestyle and give me some real tips/insights on effective practice. He also encouraged the skills I already built to this point. Probably the first teacher I’ve had who didn’t tell me “forget everything you know” because my real education is about to begin. He’s real, he’s practical, and he’s a genuinely good guy. And his years of experience give him this ability to be very direct and efficient with his feedback. It’s a relief to have that especially after studying music for so long. He doesn’t waste your time.

Lastly, I really do enjoy practice. It’s a new feeling lol. I came from a teacher that just tore me down a lot and didn’t build me up much. My confidence was kind of low after that. I didn’t want to practice or perform. Randy helped get me back on the horse. I feel like I have reignited what I live about performance. This was priceless."
