Featured Concord Piano Teachers

Robert C

Instruments:

Patient, positive-oriented, personalized instruction in Guitar, Bass (upright or electric) and piano.  Modern, holistic lessons in all aspects of music incorporating both traditional knowledge and styles with the latest research in the Psychology of Music. Columbia University, MA: Music and Music Education. Many years of active performance experience. I teach out of Davis, California, just East of Sacramento.  The most important thing is to develop a love for music and the habit with practice. I love to teach. Materials are selected based on the student. Generally I provide well rounded lessons with selected songs, learning to read, understanding music theory and ear training. Guitar students learn how to read, play and understand classical guitar and learn how to play all kinds of songs.  I teach the guitar as a musical instrument, not mechanically so my students learn, understand all kinds of music.  I add natural ear training so everyone's ears improve as well as their singing. Bass students start off learning the bass, how to create melodic, funky bass parts.  I teach them to understand what they are doing, improve their ear and sense of rhythm. Piano lessons are modern, positive oriented, pedagogically organized so the students achieve much success and can learn and play many songs.  I have extensive research and knowledge of the Psychology of Music.  This includes how people learn and the effect of music studies on increased intelligence.  Music studies have been proven to improve academic performance. I also can teach classically trained keyboard players improvisation and how to play in a contemporary ensemble. I will help select  a beginner instrument. Personally, I love to play upright bass in local orchestras and jazz ensembles.  I also play classical, jazz, and rock guitar.  I worked my way through college strictly as a multi-talented musician. I am a health and fitness enthusiast.  I am an environmentalist and love hiking in Northern California.   My special interest in research into the Psychology and Neuroscience of learning to play music.

Harlan O

Instruments:

I grew up in Santa Cruz, California, and began playing piano at age 9 with the help of my older sister who also played piano. During my high school years, I focused on composition, which became my main area of study during college. Through my college training at the University of California in Santa Cruz and San Jose State University I supported myself by giving piano lessons, playing organ and piano for churches, and working as a freelance pianist. Currently, I am happy to be spending my time honing my keyboard abilities, teaching others to love the piano and music in general, and composing new pieces of music. 

Nika R

Instruments:

I grew up in a famous family of classical musicians.  I started piano at age 3, and flute at age 7.  I have been teaching since age 14.  I studied witih Louise DiTullio in Los Angeles and then pursued a career in jazz, and world music.  I have recorded six cds on my own label, Unika Records.  I have a passion for music and I am told that I spread that passion to my students.  I am very good with beginners, but I love advanced players as well.  I am patient and I encourage the student to learn all they can about every angle of music.  I have an extensive resume of folks I have played with, including but not limited to Hubert Laws, Freddie Hubbard, Taylor Eigsti,  Airto and Flora Purim. I attended USC, and graduated with honors.  I compose, sing, arrange and love to share my music that is inside of me with students.

Jacob T

Instruments:

Both passionate and laid back, ambitious and realistic, I have found great success through having an open mind and grateful spirit in this crazy music business.  My friends and colleagues have described me as consistently positive, easy to get to know, and warm hearted.  I hold two degrees in vocal performance, and consider the countless hours I've spent teaching in the studio and performing on stage to be my greatest assets.  No musician is complete without an understanding of the piano; my own experience began at an early age, and I encourage any student to begin studying piano as soon as possible!  I have studied with amazing pedagogues and scholars alike, and carry their teaching with me where ever I go.  Although the bulk of my professional resume is made up with operatic experience, my roots lie in choral music, jazz, and musical theater.  I have performed professionally in the United States as well as Germany and Italy.  I have a spacious, sunny studio space in my house with a very nice, 88-key, digital keyboard in up-and-coming Center Oak, just outside of downtown Oakland.

Alison C

Instruments:

Empowering people with music is my greatest passion.  From the time I was a small child, I knew that following this passion would be my life's path. I began studying piano at age 7 and voice at 13.  I have had the great honor of performing as a soloist around the world including touring as soprano soloist with Ballet San Jose throughout China, Sarasota Opera, American Opera Projects in New York City, Opera San Jose, Virginia Opera Education Outreach, and touring with Opera Aegean throughout Greece.  I also love bringing music to people who are in need volunteering in senior living facilities.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
Musika offers piano lessons in the comfort of your home. Provided you have a piano or keyboard to practice, you have everything needed to start learning straight from home! Taking lessons in the home is a great way to save time and money travelling to your piano lessons. There is no difference in the content of the lessons, whether they take place at home or in the studio. Home piano lessons are a particularly good option for younger students. It is a big advance for young students to learn in a familiar, comfortable and supportive environment.
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.
"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."
Due to the attention span of very young children, we advise that students begin their piano lessons no younger than age 4 or 5. Piano lessons are a great way to introduce an instrument for the first time to a younger child, as learning piano will teach them basic musicianship skills like rhythm and harmony, and how to read sheet music and chords.
