About Martinez Piano Studio

hired 1 time on Thumbtack

I teach piano lessons which involve instruction in technique, sight-reading, theory, and repertoire in various styles of music. I offer public recitals twice a year, and an audition once a year before a judge from the National Piano Guild.

I teach students of any age beginning at four starting from a beginning level up to advanced. I teach in my studio in Tracy, CA and in Fremont CA at Allegro Music. I have been teaching piano lessons for forty years and hold two degrees in music BA from Mills College and MA from Holy Names University.

I work very well with young children. I play piano for worship at Victory Christian Church in Tracy. I teach classical music and Christian contemporary music. I love people, and they appreciate my devotion to them in regular weekly lessons.

    We have had 3 piano teachers for our grandson. The first two were well qualified, and taught our grandson how to play different pieces of music, however, Mrs. Martinez is the only piano teacher that took the time to step back and have our grandson review how to read music, i.e. names of music notes. That ensured he had the basic music foundation before proceeding forward. This has resulted in amazing growth in his learning abilities to play the piano. Because of Mrs. Martinez dedication to teach at a pace based on her students ability to learn, we highly recommend her for all ages, as well as all levels of piano from the beginner, intermediate, to the more advanced students.

    Mrs. Martinez is the greatest piano teacher I have! she helps me write music, she teaches me scales and arpeggios, and new pieces.

    My daughter who is 8 years old has been coming to Kathleen for lessons for almost 2 years. She is very patient with my daughter and is great when it comes to rescheduling. The differance with Kathleen & other studios is that if we're late or just can't make it she makes sure she gives us our makeup time. Where other studios will not. I would highly recommend her to anyone considering learning to play piano.

    I've been taking piano lessons for over a year now and I have to say it has been a great experience. Not only is it fun, but I've improved dramatically. Kathleen is very patient and understanding even if you don't learn as quickly as others. I would highly recommend her for all ages.

Question and answer

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. My love for my students and their opportunity to share their music with others in recitals and in piano auditions is what I offer them.I encourage my students to write their own songs and help them write them down to share with my other students.

Q. What do you like most about your job?

A. I enjoy working with people of all ages and getting to know them in a personal way offering a loving atmosphere in which they are able to learn.

Q. What questions do customers most commonly ask you? What's your answer?

A. They ask me what I charge for lessons,where I teach, how long are the lessons and how often do I teach a month. Do I offer recitals and auditions? What methods do I use?

I charge $25 for half hour lessons once a week and two recitals a year plus an annual audition with the National Piano Guild. I used Piano Adventures series by Nancy and Randall Faber and contemporary Christian music from my church as well as music from Allegro Music in Fremont. Students are encouraged to write their own songs and play by ear and by notes.
