Tara D

Instruments:

 Tara Rose Davison is been involved in music her whole life. Her father is a professional composer and her mom is a professional dancer. Thus she was lucky enough to be surrounded by the arts since infancy. She began her piano studies at age 5 and knew she would be a musician from the very beginning.  Tara has garnered much success as an opera singer, performing throughout the United States and Internationally in roles such as Queen of the Night in Die Zauberflöte, Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare, Rosalinda in Die Fledermaus, Sister Rose in Dead Man Walking and Giannetta in L’Elisir d’Amore. By the age of 21, she was the youngest finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Western Region Auditions.  In the same year, Tara was introduced to the under-recognized genre of art songs with classical guitar accompaniment. From that moment on she was hooked. In September of 2006, during her first year of graduate school, Tara began her classical guitar studies with Masakazu Ito of the Lamont School of Music. Ever since her first lesson she has been passionate about classical guitar and has shifted her focus from opera by devoting herself to the study of music for classical guitar and soprano. Less than three years after taking her first classical guitar lesson, Tara gave her debut recital of art songs for soprano and classical guitar, performing both a singer and classical guitarist. She has since made an annotated bibliography of all works for voice and guitar and in 2010 released her first album, Love Songs & Lullabies from Spain and South America for Soprano & Classical guitar.  Tara has received scholarships from the Metropolitan Opera National Council, Society of Singers, Phi-Beta, Palisades Symphony and Westside Junior Philharmonic.  She has performed in master classes with William Vendice, John Hall and Blanche Thebom.  She received a Bachelors of Music from California State University at Northridge in 2006 and a Masters of Music from University of Colorado at Boulder in 2009.  While studying at University of Colorado, Tara was the sole recipient of the Berton Coffin scholarship, the highest honor for any music major.  Tara Rose currently performs recitals of music for classical guitar and voice around Southen California and studies classical guitar with Matt Greif and Scott Morris at Cal-State University Dominguez Hills. She is also working on a second album, Ariette Italiane, which will be released in 2013.

Joong-In R

Instruments:

I am a classical trained musician. I was brought up in Bloomington Indiana, the home of the no.1 rated music school in the States (by the teacher's association). Ever since I was 10, I was involved with the University music life. I had the fortune to study with Janos Starker - perhaps the greatest cello technician in the world! His playing style is comfortable, clean, natural, and free of tension problems. Anyone can learn this great technique and benefit from it. I stress this technique on all of the instruments we teach. I was the best teacher in Los Angeles area for producing the most competition winners of SYMF a few years back (cello).  

Gary L

Instruments:

I have learned from some of the best teachers in and around Los Angeles, having studied for 4+ years in the early 1990s.  I love to hear good vocals.  It is heaven.  I love the pure, clean and raw sound.  I will help you get there and stay there.

Sara G

Instruments:

I am a passionate, energetic and enthusiastic music teacher, who loves to see my students gain both the proper vocal foundation and a passion for music! I am trained in jazz and musical theatre, along with being classically trained. I have conducted several youth choruses around the SFV,  and have been on the Board of Directors for the San Fernando Valley Master Chorale. I recently was accepted to the Manhattan School of Music's Summer Choral Festival, and have received my BA in Music from California Lutheran University (Full Scholarship). I am both the Music Director of a prestigious private school and the founder of Anthem Music Lesson's Choral/Musical Theatre Program.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or a weighted keyboard for their lessons. It is very important to set up a practice schedule every day. You can purchase a basic keyboard at a local music store or an electronic store. Some students may also wish to rent a piano if they do not wish to invest in buying one right away. Digital keyboards offer a good choice for the beginning student because they are portable and easily stored in your home. Keyboards will start at 65 keys at the smallest amount and increase to a full size keyboard of 88 keys. The most common brands of keyboard are Casio, Yamaha, and Korg.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. Students vary in ability from beginner to advanced, and naturally have different lessons requirements for each stage of their development. Put broadly, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. Intermediates will start to take these concepts further, but learning different chords variations, such as diminished, augments, slash and 7th chords, as well as improving their speed and playing more complex compositions. Advanced students can develop playing skills such as glissando, improv and working with different piano modes, such as Dorian, Mixolydian and Aeolin. They may also like to study a specific genre - usually Jazz or Blues piano.
Studying piano as an adult is a fun and educational experience. You will learn the technique of the instrument, and various selections of repertoire tailored to your needs and goals. Whether you are a beginner or advanced student, our instructor can help you improve your skills on the instrument. Many of our adult students enjoy playing their music at local clubs and venues in their communities.
Children are recommended to start piano lessons no earlier than age 4 or 5. The attention span and personality of the child are something to consider when thinking of taking lessons. Even if your child has no evident musical inclinations, piano lessons offer a great option for introducing your child to music. During their lessons children will learn how to read music, fundamentals of musicianship and sight reading, music theory techniques, and ear training.
