Kateland C

Instruments:

I am a recent graduate of University of California Irvine with a Bachelor in Music Vocal Performance.  I specialize in teaching classical art song and opera, but am also passionate about teaching the musical theater repertoire and popular genres.  My goal is to inspire students to explore the sound and meaning of the music beyond the written page.  I believe deeper understandings give way to stronger and more professional performances.  I work closely with students to help them develop strong basics and a concrete foundation in voice or piano, through fun and interactive music and games.   Having performed with the Orange County Pacific Symphony, I am able to provide students with professional performance perspectives from performing in small venues to 3,000 seat performance halls.

I have studied music at California State University Dominguez Hills and Long Beach City College where I have completed Audio Engineering, Music Theory, History, Literature courses as well as played in numerous ensumbles. I have played as a part of everything from jazz orchestras to punk rock bands. I know how to read music as well as play it loud! My love of music is my number one guide in my teaching style. 

Linda G

Instruments:

I'm an eclectic and dynamic teacher/musician who enjoys helping students develop their musical gifts.  After a challenging audition process, I was recently accepted into the graduate music program at the University of Redlands where my focus is on classical guitar performance, music theory, sight-singing, ear-training and music history.  As a teacher, I'm patient, enthusiastic and interested in students fulfilling their musical goals while helping them to grasp the crucial basics of understanding and performing all types of music.

More Information About Piano Lessons

As students will need to practice the content taught during their lessons, they will need to invest in a digital piano or a keyboard. There are a number of different keyboards on the market, however we suggests looking to buy one with 61 keys or more. Keyboards with weighted action keys are most like that of a real piano, and are recommended. Keyboards are often a cheaper and more convenient option that digital pianos or a real piano, as they can be transported around and played using headphones. That said, if buying an acoustic piano is within your budget, it will provide the most satisfying learning experience.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home piano lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule - students will need a keyboard to practice on, however. For younger students in particular, having piano lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the piano.
As piano lessons are customized to the needs of each individual student, we are able to better help you to achieve your goals. Beginner students may just want to learn an instrument out of interest and for fun - so the basics will be covered to get you up and running. This will include music theory and technical exercises, such as hand position, fingering and playing scales and chords. Intermediate students may be working towards an exam, recital or performance, so will cover playing, performance and stylistic techniques such as legato, staccato, glissando, sight reading, exploring harmonics and working on speed - runs, fills and solos. Other topics that may be covered in your piano lessons are things like piano modes, expanding your repertoire, developing improvisation and jamming skills and studying the various types of genre-based playing techniques and styles, such as Jazz, Ragtime, Blues, Rock or Classical piano.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
