About Anna

Hi! My name is Anna, and I am a highly experienced (10+ years) piano & vocal teacher. I teach everything from classical, to pop, to jazz, and even R&B/Blues/Soul. I also provide music theory and ear training to my students, as I believe it to be an integral part of music education!

As a long time MTAC participant and member, as well as a National Piano Guild member, I have taught students ranging in age from toddlers to adults, and have relied on my background with the highly prestigious Russian School of music as well as the Suzuki method in order to provide a highly catered and personalized teaching style that is geared entirely to each individual student based on their individual needs.

I've been working with children of all ages (4-64!) for over a decade and I absolutely love & am inspired by my students' inquisitive attitudes & energy; they are such a great joy to be around.

I studied piano & vocal performance as part of my UC Irvine & UC Santa Cruz education & graduated with a Bachelor of the Arts in the top 10th percentile of my class with Dean's Honors in 2009. After graduation, I immediately began teaching at one of the most prestigious private music schools in the Silicon Valley (Pacific Piano School), where held a studio of over 30 students! In 2015 I decided to make the move to Los Angeles after receiving a record deal with Plug Research Records, and am now building a private studio again!

With me, you or your child will have fun & will always be learning. I have 10+ years of experience & consider myself a dependable, caring, & inquisitive person. I'm comfortable with kids ranging from toddlers to teens and am also extremely experienced in working with adult students!

My hobbies include playing piano, singing/writing songs, creating all kinds of art, & furniture design!

Hope to meet you and/or your family soon!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Ear Training

I have prepared student for the highly competitive MTAC test in California for the last 7 years - one of the portions of this test requires ear training proficiency. Also, I have completed rigorous ear training classes in UC Santa Cruz in their Bachelor program.

General Music

When I was younger I won first and second places in the US Open Piano competition in Oakland, CA. I also placed very highly each year in the coveted MTAC testing levels 1-10 (passed with an A or higher). Additionally, throughout college, I won 1st place for 3 years in a row for the Jean Kreschmer music scholarship in the music department. After college, I proceeded to teach students and have them be active participants in the MTAC and National Guild testing (these are organizations who only accept teachers who are highly qualified by checking transcripts, documents, and performance/teaching records.)

In addition I have been singing for 20 years. I have participated in national and state honor choirs, and have written songs that have been selected to play as the theme song for the show Celebrity Apprentice on NBC as well as the show Suits on TBS!

Music History

I have taken several music history courses in UC Santa Cruz during college. Also, I have studied for and passed all MTAC tests (Levels 1-10) which required proficiency in playing, ear training, theory, and music history.

Piano

When I was younger I won first and second places in the US Open Piano competition in Oakland, CA. I also placed very highly each year in the coveted MTAC testing levels 1-10 (passed with an A or higher). Additionally, throughout college, I won 1st place for 3 years in a row for the Jean Kreschmer music scholarship in the music department. After college, I proceeded to teach students and have them be active participants in the MTAC and National Guild testing (these are organizations who only accept teachers who are highly qualified by checking transcripts, documents, and performance/teaching records.)

Sight Singing

I have been singing for 20 years, and have done very challenging classes required to receive my music scholarship throughout college that were very dependent on ear training/sight singing training (2 full years of training in private and small group classes with consistent testing.) Additionally, I have done ear training throughout my own MTAC testing when I was younger (levels 1-10), and finally, I have prepared my students for the past 10+ years to pass this portion of their annual testing and they have all succeeded with excellent (mostly top 10% of their county) in performance, ear training, history, and sight singing.

Songwriting

I have been singing for 20 years. I have participated in national and state honor choirs, and have written songs that have been selected to play as the theme song for the show Celebrity Apprentice on NBC as well as the show Suits on TBS!

Additionally I have written demos for Fergie, Gwen Stefani, and many other artists. I have also worked with grammy winners Bobby Ozuna and Tommy Costner.

Voice (Music)

I have been singing professionally for 20 years and teaching singing professionally for 10 years. As a student, I competed in the National and State Honor Choirs in California. Additionally, I attended numerous music theatre camps and have participated/had major lead roles in several high school and collegiate musical theatre/musical/choral productions.

In addition to my numerous years spent in choirs and musical singing groups, I have been a professional singer/songwriter for 5+ years having written songs and demos for major label recording artists (Gwen Stefani, Fergie, David Guetta and more) as well as obtaining a record deal for my own singing/songwriting artistry with Plug Research Records based in Los Angeles.
