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:

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.

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.

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.

More Information About Piano Lessons

A keyboard or digital piano is a perfectly acceptable alternative to an acoustic piano for the purposes of lessons and practice. The major advantages of keyboards are the cheap price, portability and the possibility of playing with headphones, which means being able to practice without disturbing others. When buying a keyboard, look to get one with a weighted hammer action and as many keys as possible - a minimum of 61 should suffice. Weighted keys with most resemble the touch sensitivity of a real piano. The most common brands are Casio, Korg and Yamaha. If possible, look to purchase an upright or bay grand piano.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons in your home - a smart and simple solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
There are several different, but vey important elements to becoming a good piano player. It takes time to master the basic skills that will set you on your way to excellence. For beginners, the lessons will focus on elementary piano knowledge and technique, such as learning all the notes of the piano, hand and finger techniques for playing, learning scales and chords, as well as some music theory; reading sheet music, chord charts etc... These basic skills can then be applied to simple songs. Students with these foundations in place can expect to cover things like, diminished chords and other chord types, sight reading, playing more challenging compositions and learning the 7 piano modes - Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian mode. Lessons for advanced students might cover topics such as improvisation, glissando, or the study of a specific genre of playing or composer, such as Jazz piano or Johann Sebastian Bach.
Adults take up piano lessons for a number of different reasons. Some people want to reintroduce themselves to the instrument having once played it in the past, while others are looking for a new hobby or just to learn a new skill for fun! Whatever the reason, there are major benefits to learning the piano during adulthood. Learning piano technique can help retain fine motor skills and co-ordination, it can keep the mind sharp due to the complex thought processes and has shown to be good for preserving your hearing. Learning to play the piano can also be therapeutic, and is a great stress reliever.
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.
