Featured Elk grove Piano Teachers

Ann W

Instruments:

I began singing, playing guitar and ukelele, and playing harmonica in grades K-12, then finally began studying music formally as a re-entry college student in 1997 at Humboldt State University.  I studied flute and voice there as electives while completing my first BA in English Education and minor in Dance.  At Humboldt, I played flute in the Intermediate Orchestra and sang in Humboldt Chorale from 1998-2001, studying flute under Ginny Ryder.  Transferring to CSU, Sacramento in 2001 to complete my MA in English, I began performing in the CSU, Sacramento Concert Band, and later, also performed in the CSU, Sacramento Symphonic Wind Ensemble.  Completing the English MA in 2005, I simultaneously entered the Music Program at CSU, Sacramento as a Second BA candidate in Flute.  I studied there under Laurel Zucker, graduating in 2010 with honors level grades (GPA 3.8 on a 4 point scale). My additional flute teachers at CSU, Sacramento were Ronda Winter, Deana Ehlen, Honey Sharp, Alicia Patrice, and Dr. James Chopyak (shakuhachi). I love teaching and tutoring, especially one-on-one, and am comfortable working with diverse ages and types of people. People say I am kind, sensitive, and patient as a teacher and tutor.  I am eager to teach flute, and look forward to working with you!

Colin M

Instruments:

I'm a life-long musician with a passion for the art and a love of teaching it.  In 2012, I graduated from Sacramento State with a Bachelors in Music.  Through my schooling and personal study, I have become a well-rounded musician able to teach many instruments effectively.  Making music with others at a high level, teaching, and having the opportunity to perform professionally around the Sacramento area has been a great experience.  I look forward to continuing that journey, growing as a person and musician, and being a positive role-model for others!

I was awarded a Bachelors Degree in Music, Piano performance major, in Japan and have been teaching piano for 25 years not only in Japan but also in Africa (I was sent to Zambia by Japanese government and taught Music in the college for 2.5 years) and the US.

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.
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.
The content of each lesson is determined by the ability and experience level of each individual student. 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. Intermediate players can start to increase their playing speed in order to perform runs, fills and solos, they can broaden their chord playing to things like augmented chords, diminished chords, they develop their sight reading, music theory - such as time signatures - and applying these skills to more complex compositions. Advanced players may want to study a particular genre or composer. Pianists who enjoy Classical music may like to study the compositions of Bach or Mozart, or maybe develop their Jazz or Blues playing. Teachers can also help prepare students for exam, auditions, performances or recitals.
In many ways adult learns have an advantage over young students. Adults have better self-discipline with regards to practice, a more patient and have higher levels of concentration. This allows them to develop the basic skills at a reasonably quick rate. Learning the piano is also a great way of remaining mental active during adulthood, and helps students to improve their hand-eye co-ordination and develop a critical ear. Learning to play the piano in adulthood can be beneficial health-wise, is a great way of harnessing creativity and stimulating the brain as can be immensely satisfying when achieving set goals.
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.
