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.

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. 

Mariya M

Instruments:

I believe in focusing individually on every student, to help them achieve their own success. Discipline and self motivation important. I focus on building a solid technical foundation through various technical studies and etudes. I also encourage students to attend concerts, develop basic theory, and to seek/participate in other physical activities such as dance, sports, which would help with developing coordination and strength. Materials:Students are expected to bring all necessary materials to lessons, including their instrument, shoulder rest, rosin, cleaning cloth, music, a notebook, and a pencil.Violins can be rented and necessary materials can be purchased locally at:Watermelon Music Store207 E StDavis, CA(530) 758-4010Students are encouraged to participate in youth orchestra, chamber music, and summer music programs and festivals. The student is expected to consult with the teacher regarding potential programs to ensure that the best decisions are made for the student's education.

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!

More Information About Piano Lessons

As students will need to practice the content taught during their lessons, they will need to invest in a digital piano or a keyboard. There are a number of different keyboards on the market, however we suggests looking to buy one with 61 keys or more. Keyboards with weighted action keys are most like that of a real piano, and are recommended. Keyboards are often a cheaper and more convenient option that digital pianos or a real piano, as they can be transported around and played using headphones. That said, if buying an acoustic piano is within your budget, it will provide the most satisfying learning experience.
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.
As piano lessons are customized to the needs of each individual student, we are able to better help you to achieve your goals. Beginner students may just want to learn an instrument out of interest and for fun - so the basics will be covered to get you up and running. This will include music theory and technical exercises, such as hand position, fingering and playing scales and chords. Intermediate students may be working towards an exam, recital or performance, so will cover playing, performance and stylistic techniques such as legato, staccato, glissando, sight reading, exploring harmonics and working on speed - runs, fills and solos. Other topics that may be covered in your piano lessons are things like piano modes, expanding your repertoire, developing improvisation and jamming skills and studying the various types of genre-based playing techniques and styles, such as Jazz, Ragtime, Blues, Rock or Classical piano.
"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."
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
