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 64 year old and i started to take piano lessons for the first time in my life with Kelly. She is a wonderful teacher, pacient, she understand the difficulties the student can have , she is puntual and organized. I am totally recommed her, I miss her so much since she moved away.
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.
She's very knowledgeable about music and very passionate about what she does. I was very scared of taking piano lessons because I thought I was too old for it, but she helped me overcome that fear. She made me feel confident about myself and pushed me to do better. I really appreciate her patience and encouragements. I also liked how she's interested in the kind of music that I like to play. I told her I was more into church songs, so she found a music book that had songs for my level. I am very thankful for the effort that she put in so I could learn how to play and have fun at the same time.
I always have fun doing piano lessons with Janelle. She is very laid-back and friendly, and I feel like I can talk to her like a friend. She uses good techniques, and I've learned to read music much better and play new songs very quickly. Overall, I would very much recommend her to anyone looking for a high quality piano or voice teacher!
Very good instruction. I am a beginner at piano but the teacher instilled a lot of confidence in me.
We have been taking guitar lessons for 4 years with Rockstars. My son has learned so much and has especially enjoyed the many opportunities to perform around the community. We love the program and look forward to putting my daughter in lessons soon.
My name is Kevin Kao, and I'm a full-time professional piano teacher. I have a high-quality, up-to-date piano studio both in teaching method and environment (in a profession that's easy to become stagnant and settle into dated methods of teaching and habits) with students ranging from 5 years old to 60 years old. My ultimate goal in piano lessons is for my students to become well-rounded and confident individuals who are able to think critically, be sensitive to the world around them, and to love and appreciate classical musical for the rest of their lives. While my BM in piano performance from Cole Conservatory of Music compels me to upheld a high musical standard for my students, I'm never for the pain-and-fear piano teaching methods of the past. Students and parents say that I'm encouraging, patient, fun, and easygoing, yet strict on musical standards. Lastly, they say that I'm professional and passionate about music. At my studio, you are guaranteed quality teaching because of my master's degree from SDSU in piano performance along with completion of all the piano education classes (including child development as it relates specifically to piano lessons) and working personally with Dr. Mitzi Kolar (co-author of the Celebrate Piano Method books). Also, make sure to check out my answer on Thumbtack regarding my continued education in the field of piano education. To give students of my studio ample opportunities to be recognized and share their music, hard work, and accomplishments with each other, my studio holds two recitals every year along with four informal, student-only studio classes. Visit our studio website at and come join all the successful, confident and happy students at FreshStart Piano Studio.
Ken is an excellent teacher. He taught my son, JT, guitar lessons for about 3 years. Ken is very patient and motivational, which was very necessary as my son was quite young at the time, . He has an incredible way of connecting with his students.. Ken was able to make the lesson fun for my son and focused on the kind of music JT liked to play. I would recommend Ken to anyone wanting to learn how to play the guitar!
