I consider myself to be very professional. I love to please my students in not only teaching the necessary skills to execute the instrument but also encouraging them to play the songs and genres of their choice when applicable. I am a Berklee College of Music Graduate with a Bachelor in Film Scoring Major and a Minor in Piano Performance and Vocal Technique. My experience lies as a piano and background vocal performer for many of the great Salsa and Latin Jazz artist as Luis Enrique, Gilberto Santarosa, Ismael Miranda, Andy Montanez, Tito Rojas, Frankie Negron, Issac Delgado, Michel Stuart, Melina Leon, N’KLABE, NG2, Chocolate Almenteros, Charlie Sepulveda, Humberto Ramirez, Elias Lopez, Luis Perico Ortiz, and many others.

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. 

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.

More Information About Piano Lessons

For the sake of lessons and practice, a keyboard is often a much more viable option than buying a piano. Pianos are space consuming and expensive, as well as being very loud. Keyboards are perfect - especially for beginners - as they are more diverse in their functionality. Most keyboards come with a range of different sounds and effects (FX), such as chorus, reverb and synthesizer sounds. Another great feature common to many keyboards is a record function. This allows students to hear things back after they have played them, such as practicing scales etc... or to record ideas they are composing!
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
All students start their lessons at different levels of experience and with different aims and goals in mind. For beginner students who are new to the piano, lessons will be devised to give students the fundamentals of good piano playing. Students will learn the correct posture, hand position and fingering techniques for playing scales and chords. Students can develop these skills through practising scales, arpeggios and simple melodies using both hands. For advanced students, they will cover more intricate skills, such as creating runs and fills to add interest and variation to their playing, to develop their repertoire of pieces they can play and to develop their sight reading. Some students may have a specific genre that they are interested in learning, such as jazz piano. Students will learn the musical theory and techniques that underly a host of musical genres. Musika teachers are able to recommend books or specific areas of additional study that they feel will advance each individual student and help to achieve their goals.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
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.
