Kelly is a masterful musician and excellent pedagogue. She is extremely patient but also firmly committed to making sure you improve your skills. Most importantly she is a lovely person and very affable, a joy to be around. I highly recommend Kelly for your piano lessons whether you're starting from zero or you have 20 years of experience.

Hi. I'm Lara, and I want to teach you how to play the piano. I believe that music is one of God's greatest gifts, and I aim to bring out the natural music that already exists in each of our hearts. (It's not cheesy, it's real, I promise!) Here's the coach difference: As a piano coach, it is my specialty to motivate and inspire you to be a great pianist along with the standard teaching of how to play the piano. Music is from the heart. It is passion, it is natural. Learning music is not about technique. It is about love. What does this mean? In almost all regards, we've gotten further away from the heart, and it seems it has become harder to tap into our nature with the demands of daily life. By focusing on the natural aspects of the music as opposed to the man-made elements (such as correct fingering, for example) we are able to avert the intimidation of facing the awe-inspiring allure of the 88 keys. This does not mean we ignore the technical aspects of playing by any means. It just means that it is not our primary focus. Together, we will set goals, work toward them, and accomplish your musical dreams. I will teach you the following: 1. How to read music. 2. Correct classical technique. 3. Music theory. 4. How to improve your listening skills. 5. How to channel your emotion into the music and really feel what you're playing. Along with, of course, standing by your side throughout your growth process and cheering you on throughout the way. Thumbtack has awarded me the Best of 2015 award for piano lessons! Thank you to all of my students (past, present and future) for your support and hard work that makes great things like this possible!

I am 41 and just started piano lessons with Kelly. I like the way she presents the material in different ways and adjusts to my learning style. She is very patient with me and her friendly, positive energy is contagious

I provide both in-home private piano lessons for your convenience and comfort, or you may take lessons at my studio located in Huntington Beach, CA. Each students will have their own individualized lesson plan where technique, theory, ear-training, and sight-reading will be taught. I received a diploma from the National Guild of Piano Teachers, a division of American College of Musicians, and graduated in the top 1%. I am a classically trained piano teacher, but I can teach in all genres of music. I also teach all ages groups, as well as students of all skill levels. I try to make the experience of the lessons as enjoyable and fun as possible, while still providing the student with what they need to learn. I do expect each student to practice, so there is progression. Nothing motivates a student more than when they can see themselves playing a song that they never thought they could play.

I am still a piano student of Dennis's and have really enjoyed my lessons with him this past year. Being a teacher myself, I find Dennis's teaching skills to be highly effective and motivating. He provides me with a great balance of education in music theory and technique and is extremely open to the pieces of music I want to learn. My piano lessons are a wonderful gift to myself!

I loved taking voice and piano lessons with Belinda! She is definitely very knowledgable on voice and was able to help me improve on my vocal weaknesses. She also taught me to play piano and sing at the same time, which is something I love doing now!

Hi. This is really about you! My philosophy is founded in that it must be fun to learn. The first thing I ask any potential student is what kind of music he/she is into, be that Justin Bieber or Metallica, and that will be the foundation for the lessons. I am also big on practical use and understanding, so I make sure you know why you're learning something and that you truly understand what you're learning. I am a professional guitar player/teacher. I'm originally from Sweden, but I have called LA my home since 2006. I have about 14 years of experience teaching music; I also wrote and taught the advanced rock curriculum at the Los Angeles College for Music (formerly LA Music Academy). Yes, I will teach you how to read music (if that is what you want)! I teach beginner to pro in guitar and beginner to intermediate in piano and bass, from 7 years old and up. I teach all styles and genres.
