Featured Carlsbad Piano Teachers

Tiffany G

Instruments:

I love music and helping people.  I have been playing the piano for over 18 years.  Music and piano was my therapy that helped to heal me in a time of tragedy.  I studied piano through college, I have taken many music courses and I have a certificate in music theory and harmony from Berklee College of Music.  I want to help others gain an appreciation for music by helping students develop their abilities and talents. 

Kia P

Instruments:

I am a musician, composer, teacher and author. I graduated from the NYC "Fame School"- Fiorello H. LaGuardia HS of Music and Art. I studied music theory and composition at Mannes Conservatory, NYC and received a BA as a Music Major from Aaron Copland School of Music/Queens College/CUNY. I took Graduate courses studying Special Ed/Music Therapy at Lehman College, NY. After in depth research with creating highly motivational music programs for all ages as well as for children that had ADD, Autism, or Aspergers, I was awarded a grant from the Grammy's to write a book.  I have traveled to Europe and the far east teaching creative music workshops. I have been teaching beginner, intermediate and beginner-advanced piano and vocal coaching for 25 years. Teaching music is a way of life. I believe we are all creative individuals. The key is to express ourselves fully through music and enjoy the journey as we learn and grow in our musical expression. 

Tai N

Instruments:

I am a mother of 4 and professional musician.  My teaching experience includes public school, private schools, homeschool groups, and individual studio instruction.  I love performing but more that that I love to see my students embrace a lifelong love of music.  I employ a variety of hands-on techniques that engage students and use incentives to help them achieve success.

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. 

Annie H

Instruments:

My name is Annie Hoffman and I was born with an indescribable passion for music that I long to share with others who have a strong desire to learn! I have been playing violin for 14 years performing in the San Diego Civic Youth Orchestra from 2000-2009 and then continuing onto Azusa Pacific University Symphony Orchestra, various chamber string ensembles, as well as playing in the Azusa Pacific University Choir and Orchestra Ensemble. In college I also studied piano, voice, and dabbled in organ and guitar.

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.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
Piano lessons are usually structured around a series of method books which are recommended by the teacher, and can be purchased at a local music store or online. Lessons for a beginner usually start with familiarizing the student with the piano as well as beginner level technique. This will include learning the notes on the piano, and learning basic scales, like major and minor scales. Beginners will start by learning how to play scales using the correct finger techniques with both bands until they develop their speed and co-ordination. Eventually students will start off by playing simple melodies - often nursery rhymes - that utilize and put the fingering techniques into practice. Students will also learn the various types of chord, from simple major and minor chords, through to 7th chords, slash chords and diminished chords. Students will also develop their sight reading and music theory knowledge throughout their lessons.
For adults who are looking to learn to play the piano, we recommend that they do so with some clear goals in mind. Maybe you want to learn to play some of your favourite songs, pass an exam or write your own music? Whatever the aim, our experienced teachers can help unlock the skills necessary to make those goals a reality. It can take time to develop the techniques and co-ordination required to play the piano to a competent level. However, playing the piano is a great stress reliever, keeps you mentally active and can help with your hearing and fine-motor skills.
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.
