About Jamie

I am a professional pianist and organist, however I find that I learn so much from teaching others and it helps me to grow as a person and musician. I have a Master's Degree in Piano performance and began teaching as a teenager. I am a member of Music Teachers Association of California, Music Teachers National Association, and a founding teacher with the Music Development program. Each of these organizations have performance and theory elements for which I prepare my students. I work with children as young as 3, as well as college students.

I love meeting new people and getting to know them and their strengths and weaknesses. I especially enjoy seeing students progress and love a challenge. I particularly enjoy discovering how a student learns best and seeking out the best method for him or her to succeed.

I think that what makes me outstanding as a tutor is my patience and creativity. I want the students to learn and try to be flexible with schedules. I am happy to make up lessons as long as you notify me at least 24 hours in advance. I am happy to meet with the student at a location of their choice: my studios in West Covina, Upland, or Rancho Cucamonga or conveniently at your home. I encourage dialogue with students to keep them challenged, but not overwhelmed and provide periodic assessments and progress reports.

I offer a free assessment to ensure that we are a good match and that I can meet your needs. I also offer incentives for referring other students. I look forward to hearing from you and helping you succeed in your chosen subject. Thank you for your interest in music!

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 a Master of Music Degree in Piano performance which includes advanced ear training classes. I have been training beginning to advanced students in ear training for Certificate of merit, the Music Development program and the National Guild of Piano Teachers for over 15 years.

Music History

I have a Master of Music Degree and some work towards my doctorate in Piano Performance. I have had Music History Classes on every period and many books which I use with my piano students to enhance their understanding of period in which their pieces were written.

Music Theory

I teach music theory to my beginning piano students and have successfully tutored students in advanced keyboard harmony for the Music Development Program.

Piano

I have a Master of Music Degree in Piano performance. I belong to Music teachers association of California, Music Teachers National Association and its California, affiliate, National Guild of Piano Teachers and I am a founding teacher for the Music Development Program. I also adjudicate for these organizations and other competitions. My students do well in these evaluations and we work to improve areas in which they do not perform well.

Sight Singing

I have a master of Music Degree in Piano performance and I have accompanied many singers, their students and voice classes, as well as church choirs and instrumentalists. I have observed and learned from choir directors and music teachers teaching sight singing and also taught it myself as preparation for Certificate of Merit and the Music Development Program.

Great Music Teacher

My first lesson with Jamie was a very fun and comfortable experience. She wanted to assess my skill level, and immediately you could sense her passion for helping someone learn and enjoy music/piano. Also, her attention to detail was very impressive as it really communicated her desire to teach the correct way, but also to build a strong foundation for her students to excel in their pursuits.
