|Piano Lessons at UCLA

So I've recently discovered that I wish I continued playing the piano since I quit in 6th grade (I am now a 1st year graduate student, 23 years old now lol). I've been playing at home (when I go home on the weekends) but soon realized that I cannot continue without a piano instructor. Does anybody know of any piano instructors at UCLA where I can receive lessons twice or once a week on campus? If so, who would you recommend? Anybody have any experience with them (if there are any)?
As for my skill level, I wouldn't say I'm a beginner (I can read notes for the most part) but I don't think I'm an intermediate either. I'd like to find a teacher who would be able to assess what level I'm at and adjust his/her teaching accordingly. I'd like to get better at this and hopefully become a decent piano player (not professional obviously lol).
Any help/information would be appreciated. Thanks!
Contact a grad student or senior piano major and ask!
The following people are great pianists and can be contacted on facebook:
Sanaz was my TA once and she is quite possibly the nicest, most pleasant person on earth and she is super talented!

Hi There, that sounds good! I'll contact you sometime when I figure out everything. My email is email@example.com.
I was wondering when somebody was going to mention google.
I was hoping for some more personal anecdotes, experiences with a particular instructor, since I know I could easily find a list of instructors but wouldn't know how each instructor would teach. I suppose I should have made that clearer.
