Featured Carlsbad Piano Teachers

Sarah K

Instruments:

I began playing the violin and piano when I was 4 years old. My mother was a piano teacher for over 30 years with contagious passion for music and her students, so with training in perfect pitch, sight-reading, and other musicianship skills, I began performing solo and in ensembles. I soon became an assistant teacher, beginning my own private lessons. Since elementary school, I've been a part of the church choir, school band, and orchestra. As I entered high school, I decided to become more active and take leadership in the ensembles. I became the Concert Mistress of the symphonic and string orchestra and held onto my first chair until graduation. I also participated in the San Jose Philharmonic Orchestra, as first violinist. I was also a first violinist of the Korean American Music Supporters Association (KAMSA), performing a concert at the Disney Concert Hall. Since 1997, I have won countless awards from CWC Annual Music Competitions, California Music Education Association, KTVN Bay Area Annual Music Competitions, Prospect-Westmont String Orchestra voted Most Outstanding Instrumentalist, and received all 10 levels in both piano and violin in Certificate of Merit (CM) Tests.I moved to San Diego to study Music Performance at University of California-San Diego. I became the Concert Mistress of the UCSD Chamber Orchestra and look forward to continuing my education for Music Performance, Music Education, and Psychology. In my music career, I've formed duets, trios, and quartets, to volunteer and perform at weddings, funerals, nursing homes, and other private events. I also am a part of an indie rock/bluegrass band called the County Fair, playing the fiddle. In my free time, I compose and transpose for myself as well as for my students who would like to learn an easier version of a piece, different genres like pop songs from movies, TV shows, favorite artists, etc.

Lori B

Instruments:

I have more than 30 years experience as a private piano instructor.  I specialize in the Suzuki Piano Method, and have received teacher training in the method through the Suzuki Assoc. of the Americas.  I am comfortable teaching all ages, including preschool.  I believe that every child is able to learn to play the piano with the appropriate method and good parental involvement.

Rebecca L

Instruments:

Hello, I have several names to go by, choose one and I promise to respond--Rebecca, Becca, Bex-- take you pick! I am a graduate of Cal State University, Fullerton with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Music Education, and have recently completed the teaching program to recieve my teaching credentials. I have an extreme passion for music and teaching and am anxious to share it with my students. Music has always been a part of my life. I have been singing in choirs since I was in the sixth grade. My high school and college choirs, under the direction of Robert Istad and John Tebay, have given me the opportunities to sing for performances at the Hollywood Bowl, Greek Theater, Staples Center, Nokia Theater, and the Honda Center. I have had the privilege to perform with a variety of artists such as Andrea Boccelli, Beck, John Williams, Grizzly Bear, and Eric Whitacre, as well as perform with the LA Philharmonic and the Pacific Symphony. International performances have given me the opportunity to study and sing around Italy, German, and Austria. I have been studying voice with the help of Katherin Rundus, and Linda Leyrer, and my professor Teri Watson has monitored my progress in piano. Music is what I live for each day and it is what has inspired me to continue to pursue a career in teaching. I cannot wait to share the joy that music brings with my students. 

Amber C

Instruments:

I am an experienced, enthusiastic music instructor, who received a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Massachusetts in voice and piano.  I have appeared around the world as a soloist singing jazz and pop, places including the Blue Note, NYC, Maui, Key West, Paris, Rome, Rio de Janeiro, Budapest, Phuket, Sydney, Australia.  I have also sung in ensemble groups including the Masterworks Chorale, NYC, the Verdi Opera Chorus of Southern California.  I have sung in Mandarin Chinese, Brazillian Portuguese, French, Italian and Spanish. Currently, I volunteer at the Senior Center leading/accompanying the Sing-Alongs doing songs from the early 1900's up to the present.

More Information About Piano Lessons

For students just starting out, a keyboard or digital piano is a great entry level alternative to a real acoustic piano. We suggest trying to buy a keyboard with 88 keys. Keyboards with a weighted hammer action are recommended as their touch response and general feel will be most similar to that of an acoustic piano. If it is at all possible, consider buying an acoustic piano - upright pianos are less space consuming - as this will provide students with a greater level of satisfaction during their practice time. Popular keyboard brands include Yamaha, Casio and Roland.
Music lessons in your home offer a convenient option to learning music! Most of our students request in home lessons for this reason. As long as you have a piano or keyboard in your home, then you should be all set to start your lessons! Children who have never played an instrument before may feel more comfortable studying in their own home, as it may be less intimidating than going somewhere else. In home lessons decrease the time and gas money spent traveling to a different location.
Whether you have an interest in learning to play Rock, Jazz, Romantic or Classical piano, our piano teachers can help develop your playing through one-on-one lessons. Our teachers can also prepare you for exams, recitals and performances. For beginners, the basics will be taught. This will include learning the correct posture, hand position and fingering technique. It will include learning the notes and scales of the piano, learning basic chords and chord progressions, developing the musical ear and learning to apply these things to simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. All students can develop their sight reading, ability to interpret sheet music and chord charts. Advanced students can study a particular composer o genre, can develop their repertoire, or work on their improvisational skills.
In many ways adult learns have an advantage over young students. Adults have better self-discipline with regards to practice, a more patient and have higher levels of concentration. This allows them to develop the basic skills at a reasonably quick rate. Learning the piano is also a great way of remaining mental active during adulthood, and helps students to improve their hand-eye co-ordination and develop a critical ear. Learning to play the piano in adulthood can be beneficial health-wise, is a great way of harnessing creativity and stimulating the brain as can be immensely satisfying when achieving set goals.
Piano is a great first instrument for children who have never studied music before. Our instructors specialize in teaching younger children, and will develop an individual lesson plan for your child. The youngest age that we recommend starting piano lessons is age 4. The instructor will be able to teach your child to read music, beginning music theory and musician skills, and how to develop a love for playing the instrument.
