From the owner;
I offer piano lessons to kids and adults, all styles, all levels, in your home. I serve the areas of Los Angeles and the surroundings. I also teach at my studio in Hollywood. I believe in being not only an instructor but a mentor to each of my students. My hope is to expand their knowledge and inspire them to be creative in their crafts. My teaching subjects include piano, composition, songwriting and improvisation. classical, pop, gospel and hip hop. I have a lot of experience with children and they are the reason I'm teaching piano, because nobody is as open-minded and creative as kids and seeing them rise to be great musicians makes my dream come true. I studied music at Juilliard school in New York and before that in Germany with the best instructors who gave me a priceless education which I now pass onto the next generation. I'm also a music producer who can help you with songwriting and music production. Please don't hesitate to contact me should you have any questions and I look forward to our first lesson together!
Established in 2015.
I've just started my business on Yelp in 2015, although I've been teaching piano all my life. Already at a very young age I wanted to introduce piano to my brothers and my friends. I started out just by giving lessons to everybody I could. Sometimes on tours I would give master classes and I've always enjoyed sharing my knowledge with other people. That's a great feeling that cannot be replaced.
Business owner information
I am a Juilliard trained recording artist, pianist, singer-songwriter, composer and a producer. I grew up in Israel- played with the Israeli philharmonic under the baton of Zubin Mehta and toured the world with concerts. I also performed for Bill Gates and other public figures. My teaching methods are custom tailored to each and every student. With each student I'd use a different method or approach based on his or hers needs, requirements or desires. I have been teaching all my life and specialize in teaching Kids and adults all levels. I always focus on music theory and ear training in addition to just learning how to play the piano. I make sure that my students get the full spectrum of music education. I also teach composition and improvisation as well as film scoring and songwriting. Music is my life and my passion. Therefore teaching and educating others makes my life complete!
We hold annual concerts, competitions and national examinations to further the music education and make sure it plays a big part in student's lives.
As a musician and music educator myself, I was very particular when it came to finding a piano teacher for my 9-year-old daughter. Valery has exceeded my expectations. Not only is Valery a highly skilled musician himself, but he is an excellent teacher. He is the perfect combination of being kind and patient as well as being strict and setting high expectations. Valery is also keen to see my daughter's individual strengths and help inspire her to develop them. He is giving my daughter the well-rounded piano and musicianship skills I was hoping for that will serve her no matter where her path takes her. Valery could help you no matter how big your goals are.
