Featured Concord Piano Teachers

Andrew F

Instruments:

 Andrew is a performer, producer and educator based in San Francisco, CA.

Javier P

Instruments:

My first instrument was the accordion at age seven. I started playing piano by rote when I was eleven. I was playing Classical way before I embarked on my Salsa/Jazz specialty. I studied classical piano at Cañada College under Phillip Ienni, composition with Henry Onderdonk at SFSU, and at UCLA I studied graduate piano with Peggy Sheffield in preparation for passing the graduate exams in piano (requirement for the doctoral program). I have played at many major venues as a young Rock 'n Roller, and later in life, as a Salsa and Jazz pianist. I am enthusiastic about teaching young people about music and the piano.  Having taught beginning piano since the 70s, I am well acquainted with the classical literature. 
  

Melissa M

Instruments:

Melissa, a professional operatic Soprano, has a passion for imparting a love of music to aspiring musicians. She has been singing as long as she can remember and playing piano for over 10 years. She employs a comprehensive approach to developing the entire musician. This includes learning to read music, technique, performance, stage presence, dressing the part, and how to audition successfully.

Pejman A

Instruments:

I have been insfluenced and surrounded with music since childhood. I have experience in multiple aspects of music from performance to teaching and just about everything in between. I love working with students to achieve their goals. The most rewarding feeling for me is when my student feels they've accomplished a technique or method on their respective instrument. I strive to keep lessons joyous yet keep the student motivated to practice at home. I travel to students' home and will soon have my own studio to give the student the option to travel to me. 

Phillip H

Instruments:

I am musician with experience in both voice and piano. I have two degrees in vocal performance and several years of experience playing in Jazz, R&B and Pop bands for many years. In addition, I served as the Minister of Music for Saint John Missionary Baptist Church in Long Beach. Also, I was a keyboardist for Reigning Life Fellowship and Christ Our Redeemer in Long Beach and Irvine. I have performed The Pirate King in The Pirates of Penzance, Junius in The Rape of Lucretia, Bob in The Old Maid and The Thief, Figaro in Le Nozze di Figaro, Fiorello in Il barbiere di Siviglia, Imperial Commisario in Madama Butterfly, as well as The Tinman in The Wiz.  This summer I will make my professional debut singing Cascada in The Merry Widow with Pocket Opera.  I've also sung the bass solo in Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy with the First Congregational Church of Ann Arbor. I've sung for The Links Incorporated at their regional and national conventions in Washington D.C and Orlando, including singing before Condoleezza Rice. Always eager for acquiring knowledge, I've attended summer training programs that include the International Lyric Academy in Rome and Viterbo and Opera in the Ozarks.

More Information About Piano Lessons

If purchasing an acoustic piano is not an option, we recommend that students look to buy a keyboard or digital piano for their lessons and practice. When buying a keyboard or digital piano, look to purchase one with 61 or more keys, as well as one with weighted hammer action. Having more keys, as well as weighted keys will most resemble the responsiveness and feel of an acoustic piano. Typically, keyboards are a cheaper option, they take up less space, are portable and can be played with headphones. Some of the most popular brands of keyboard or digital piano are Yamaha, Roland and Casio.
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.
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.
Learning a new musical skill as an adult is a great way to keep your brain fresh! We have many adult students actively taking lessons with us, and this actually represents around 50% of our student base. Our instructors will offer an individually tailored lesson plan to the needs of an adult student. You will learn the technique of the instrument, specific repetoire suited to your skill level, and learn how to read music and sight read.
Children are recommended to start piano lessons no earlier than age 4 or 5. The attention span and personality of the child are something to consider when thinking of taking lessons. Even if your child has no evident musical inclinations, piano lessons offer a great option for introducing your child to music. During their lessons children will learn how to read music, fundamentals of musicianship and sight reading, music theory techniques, and ear training.
