Featured Carlsbad Piano Teachers

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.

Bonnie R

Instruments:

I have known that I would be a teacher for my entire life, and I dedicate my life to spreading the joy of music. I mastered instrumental performance and music pedagogy while in college at the University of South Florida, but I continue to develop my skills every day. Though many schools have minimized music as part of the curriculum, I bring a broad music curriculum to my students' lessons. Through a combination of performing, listening, creating, and reading music, my students develop critical thinking skills that help them in all areas of life.

Diane W

Instruments:

 I've had a love for music since I was a child, when my father played classical recordings at home every day.  I've played piano and flute since age 10, and the enjoyment of it just keeps increasing!  From elementary school through college I performed on flute, including as a soloist, in bands and orchestras; and as an adult I'm continuing that.  I've performed in several orchestras in San Diego, and I'm a charter member, section leader, and soloist in the San Diego Concert Band.  I enjoy coaching flute groups, including junior high and high school flutists at Band at the Beach.  I have also enjoyed very much working with junior high students as a piano accompanist for choruses in the San Diego City Schools.  Since 1995 I've been founder of and performer in SilverWood, a versatile music ensemble.

Charles J

Instruments:

I have a passion for music and a passion for teaching. I am proud to say that I offer individualized lesson plans that specifically cater to each student's musical goals and learning styles. I have been teaching music both in public school setting and privately for nine years and some of my current students have been with me for  years. I attended San Diego State University and Cuyamaca College, studying Music Education at both. I will be beginning Graduate School next year, also studying music here in San Diego. As a working guitarist who has played in a wide variety of settings, I am able to bring real world musical knowledge to students to take them as far in music as they want to go.

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.

More Information About Piano Lessons

The best instrument to get would be an upright or baby grand piano. However, if your finances are limited we suggest looking into a digital keyboard. Go with the best quality keyboard that you can afford. We suggest a keyboard with weighted keys so that there is additional resistance on the keys than a toy piano. Most digital keyboards start at 65 keys, and go up to a full size 88 keys. You have to consider which keyboard would fit best in your home and your budget. A beginning student should get the keyboard before or immediately after beginning lessons, so that they may begin practicing as soon as the lessons commence.
Piano lessons in your home offer a convenient option for learning to play an instrument. 90% of our students take their lessons in their home, and this is a practical and time-saving way to learn the technique of the instrument. Think of all the time you can save by not having to transport your student to a class every week! In-home lessons are structured in the same way as a studio lesson, and in addition, a younger student may feel more comfortable at an in-home lesson, as they are already familiar with the surroundings.
There is no specific teaching method that all Musika teachers adhere to. All students will have lessons customized to their needs and goals as lessons progress. If there is a specific teaching style you are looking for, we will keep that in mind as we make your teacher match. Many teachers will have a few method books that they use for lessons, which will include exercises and techniques for practicing. All lessons will cover aspects of learning notes, proper technique, ear training, and how to read music.
"We have many adult students taking lessons. Whether you have studied music as a child, or are wanting to learn a new skill, music lessons are a great avenue to go with! Not only do they keep you young and energized, but our teachers are also able to be ""on your level"" and instruct you in a way you can understand."
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
