About Martinez Piano Studio

hired 6 times 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.

    My 8 year old son is doing very as a beginning pianist under Kathleen's instruction. She is patient and helps my son feel comfortable and relaxed as he is his own worst critic and hates to make mistakes. Not only is Kathleen a gifted teacher, she happens to also be a wonderful trustworth human being and I highly recommend her services to others.

    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.

    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. What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

A. I have an interview with a new customer to discover what goals and interests he or she has. If a parent wants his or her child to study piano, I ask the child if he or she wants to learn and is willing to practice ten minutes a day. I require the parent to learn with the child just like doing homework after school.

Q. What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

A. I hold a B.A. in music from Mills College and an M.A. in piano pedagogy from Holy Names University and studied early childhood education and worked in preschools to be familiar with how young children learn.

Q. Do you have a standard pricing system for your service? If so, please share the details here.

A. I do have a standard price $25.00 a half hour. $20 if two children are taking the lessons

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I began teaching piano lessons while attending Mills College under the guidance of a music professor. At Holy Names University, I attended classes on piano pedagogy observed professional piano teachers teach young children using Suzuki methods

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. Although I teach all ages , my main specialty is the instruction of the young children

Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?

A. I enter my students in Piano Guild auditions every spring. They always do very well in the auditions as well as the biannual recitals. Some of students play piano in a school band and are learning to minister in worship services.

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Look for a teacher who loves people and is patient and has a positive attitude. The teacher must be dedicated to the success of students encouraging them to study music throughout life and share music with others to enrich their lives.

Q. What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?

A. The customers ask what methods does the professional use to teach piano, what services does the teacher offer recitals, auditions, and competitions and what styles of music are taught.
