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!

Instruments:

Jack has played professionally since 1975. (Soprano, alto, tenor, baritone saxophones + flute). Influences include:  Dexter Gordon, Miles Davis, & Sonny Rollins.

Jay Jay W

Instruments:

Teaching is my passion. I love to watch as a young piano student matures into a truly exceptional musician. I love watching children experience that "Aha!" moment when they realize "This is fun!" I've been teaching for the past 5 years at a studio, in charge of, at one point, over 50 piano students, of all ages and skill levels. And I absolutely loved it. From the youngest beginners to advanced adults, every student I've taught has developed a love for the instrument, the same love that I feel. I believe that anyone can learn music and to play this beautiful instrument. If I can do it, so can you! I am very patient and have a great sense of humor! I get along great with children and adults alike.

Matthew G

Instruments:

I am a teacher and musician who loves music and sharing that passion with my students.  While living in Hawaii as a child, I was taught in the Suzuki tradition of sightreading and memorization.  Later, when I developed a love for jazz music, I began learning by ear, transcribing, and improvising.  While living in Sevilla, Spain in 2008, my flamenco lessons consisted of one on one instruction without the use of a single sheet of music.  This diverse background has taught me the values of each teaching style, as well as the fact that they can be adapted to meet both the style of music and the needs of the student being taught.

Cassandra C

Instruments:

I have been playing the piano since age 6, the clarinet since age 9, and teaching piano and clarinet since age 16; I am now in my early 20's. In college I had to choose which instrument to study in depth and I chose clarinet. I still love the piano, but it became something I did for myself. I spent 7 semesters getting my bachelor's degree and my music minor; I got a music scholarship and took clarinet lessons every semester, and spent 6 out of 7 semesters in the university's top ensemble. I now teach out of my apartment on a wonderful Yamaha keyboard with weighted keys and my personal clarinets.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We recommend that students get either a full size piano, or a weighted keyboard for their lessons. It is very important to set up a practice schedule every day. You can purchase a basic keyboard at a local music store or an electronic store. Some students may also wish to rent a piano if they do not wish to invest in buying one right away. Digital keyboards offer a good choice for the beginning student because they are portable and easily stored in your home. Keyboards will start at 65 keys at the smallest amount and increase to a full size keyboard of 88 keys. The most common brands of keyboard are Casio, Yamaha, and Korg.
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.
There is no specific teaching method that all Musika teachers adhere to. All students will have lessons customized to their needs and goals as lessons progress. If there is a specific teaching style you are looking for, we will keep that in mind as we make your teacher match. Many teachers will have a few method books that they use for lessons, which will include exercises and techniques for practicing. All lessons will cover aspects of learning notes, proper technique, ear training, and how to read music.
The piano is an easy instrument for beginners of all ages. We have adults who are total novices, some who haven't played their instrument in 10 years, and some who are more advanced students looking to take their skills to the next level. Our teachers have proven methods to get you the results you desire.
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.
