Harlan O

Instruments:

I grew up in Santa Cruz, California, and began playing piano at age 9 with the help of my older sister who also played piano. During my high school years, I focused on composition, which became my main area of study during college. Through my college training at the University of California in Santa Cruz and San Jose State University I supported myself by giving piano lessons, playing organ and piano for churches, and working as a freelance pianist. Currently, I am happy to be spending my time honing my keyboard abilities, teaching others to love the piano and music in general, and composing new pieces of music.

Pejman A

Instruments:

I have been insfluenced and surrounded with music since childhood. I have experience in multiple aspects of music from performance to teaching and just about everything in between. I love working with students to achieve their goals. The most rewarding feeling for me is when my student feels they've accomplished a technique or method on their respective instrument. I strive to keep lessons joyous yet keep the student motivated to practice at home. I travel to students' home and will soon have my own studio to give the student the option to travel to me.

I am musician with experience in both voice and piano. I have two degrees in vocal performance and several years of experience playing in Jazz, R&B and Pop bands for many years. In addition, I served as the Minister of Music for Saint John Missionary Baptist Church in Long Beach. Also, I was a keyboardist for Reigning Life Fellowship and Christ Our Redeemer in Long Beach and Irvine. I have performed The Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance, Junius in The Rape of Lucretia, Bob in The Old Maid and The Thief, Figaro in Le Nozze di Figaro, Fiorello in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Imperial Commisario in Madama Butterfly, as well as The Tinman in The Wiz.  This summer I will make my professional debut singing Cascada in The Merry Widow with Pocket Opera.  I've also sung the bass solo in Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy with the First Congregational Church of Ann Arbor. I've sung for The Links Incorporated at their regional and national conventions in Washington D.C and Orlando, including singing before Condoleezza Rice. Always eager for acquiring knowledge, I've attended summer training programs that include the International Lyric Academy in Rome and Viterbo and Opera in the Ozarks.

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.
Piano lessons in your home offer a convenient option for learning to play an instrument. 90% of our students take their lessons in their home, and this is a practical and time-saving way to learn the technique of the instrument. Think of all the time you can save by not having to transport your student to a class every week! In-home lessons are structured in the same way as a studio lesson, and in addition, a younger student may feel more comfortable at an in-home lesson, as they are already familiar with the surroundings.
Whether you have an interest in learning to play Rock, Jazz, Romantic or Classical piano, our piano teachers can help develop your playing through one-on-one lessons. Our teachers can also prepare you for exams, recitals and performances. For beginners, the basics will be taught. This will include learning the correct posture, hand position and fingering technique. It will include learning the notes and scales of the piano, learning basic chords and chord progressions, developing the musical ear and learning to apply these things to simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. All students can develop their sight reading, ability to interpret sheet music and chord charts. Advanced students can study a particular composer o genre, can develop their repertoire, or work on their improvisational skills.
Taking piano lessons as an adult is a great way to learn a new skill and have fun at the same time. Our instructors can help you learn from the very basic level if you are a beginner, or if you are an advanced player they can help you refine your skills. Adult lessons will focus on learning the technique of the instrument, including how to read music, chords, and learning repertoire
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
