About

This is simply piano! Everyone can play piano, and I can teach you how to play Amazing Grace in less than 5 minutes. I encourage my students to improvise and learn how to use their creativity to play songs. Students will learn how to read music and play songs with sight reading and chord structures.

About

Craig is an excellent teacher who is very patient and is able to offer criticism in a constructive manner. He also notices small things that have a big impact on the overall sound of a piece; now I tend to notice my own mistakes much more quickly and am able to correct them and thus advance my own playing. This has really helped sustain my interest in the piano. He is a truly excellent instructor and I would recommend him to anyone who is interested in taking piano lessons. Another commendable quality is his ability to create a fun learning atmosphere while maintaining a decent pace in the introduction of new material. I am an adult student who started playing with him for a few months and he has helped me rekindle a once lost interest in the piano.

About

My daughter was 4 years old when she started taking piano lessons with Tatiana, with practically no prior experience. We've been taking classes for almost a year now, and the results are tremendous! At not even 5 years of age, she can play with both hands, read music, and knows all her intervals and counts. Tatiana constantly engages her in music, making it fun and exciting. She selects the music pieces which are appealing for a 4-year-old, yet are challenging enough to improve her technique. Tatiana has endless patience, and works with the child to make the experience both rewarding and stimulating. My daughter loves coming to her class, and I am very happy with her musical development. I highly recommend Tatiana to anyone looking for a great piano teacher.

About

I wholeheartedly recommend Debbie for piano lessons. If you've been looking for an outstanding piano teacher, either for your child or as an adult yourself, look no further. I studied under Debbie for over 12 years before I moved away from the bay area and my experience was always outstanding. Her teaching style is both positive and efficient, which served as great motivation to instill a passion for piano within me. I attribute my love of the piano today largely to Debbie's attitude & teaching style. After laying a solid foundation of the basics, we progressed through increasingly advanced material. By the time I moved away, I was playing Rachmaninoff and had everything I would need to continue learning new material on my own. From sight reading to finding the correct fingering to interpretation of pieces, I have always felt that my training has enabled me to quickly and accurately learn even the most difficult of pieces. Debbie has her students participate in the Music Teachers' Association's Certificate of Merit program, which hones musical theory as well as sight reading & performing skills in front of an evaluator. These exams were invaluable, as having a firm understand of theory is incredibly useful when learning new pieces. It sometimes took me many months to learn some of the complex pieces for these exams, however with Debbie's excellent planning, I always learned them in time and went fully prepared into these exams. I was also chosen multiple times to play in the Branch Honors Recitals, again thanks to her excellent guidance. In addition, she holds annual recitals to further develop students' stage-performance ability. I think this is crucial for all developing musicians and has certainly allowed me to get rid of my stage fright when playing in front of large audiences. Finally, Debbie is such a nice person and is always engaging and lively. I firmly believe that a positive atmosphere is needed to cultivate a lifelong passion for the piano, and with her skills and experience, I feel that Debbie is among the very best piano teachers in the Bay Area.

About

Do you want to play boogie piano? Do you love the Beatles? Do you want to dive into some Bach preludes? Even if you just want a better understanding of how music works in general, my name is Will McDougal, and I love music. I'll specially design a lesson plan for what you would like to accomplish in music. I have experience in proper classical and jazz theory as well as bonehead rock and roll, blues, funk and a host of other styles. I do have a music degree from Cabrillo with honors. Are you tired of boring piano lessons or teachers who don't care what you want to play? While it is my opinion that keeping music fun is a must, we must also learn good technique and basic music theory. Balance is important.

Holly responded quickly to all of my questions about piano lessons, her background, schedule, etc. She was more than willing to give me references from other families that have children taking lessons from her. My daughter is a beginner. We have been taking lessons with Holly for a month now and my daughter enjoys working with her and seems to be picking up the skills.

About

Alexander Eccles has gone above and beyond with teaching me piano. He has been great at evaluating my strength and weaknesses so that I can improve to be a more well rounded pianist. It's been easy to stay in love with piano because Eccles always gives me lots of options of what kind of pieces I want to play before we start working on something new. He always knows how to improve technique, and makes a point of incorporating theory into our lessons. I've had a great time taking lessons from Eccles and have learned to appreciate piano even more over the past 4 years with him.
