Efrem B

Instruments:

 Born in San Francisco, I began my piano studies at the age of four, and then followed with my recital debut at the age of six. At nine I performed at the Junior Bach Festival in Berkeley, and at eleven was given a marvelous opportunity to play on my own television program which aired on KCET-TV in San Francisco. While studying at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, I competed and placed as one of the finalists in the Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition. After receiving my Bachelor’s Degree at San Francisco State University, I moved to Los Angeles in 1982 to pursue a career in music. I performed in numerous concerts around the greater Los Angeles area and in 1984, I was selected as one of the pianists to participate in the Olympic games opening ceremonies performing Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue. After completing two-year programs at UCLA for each of the film scoring and sound engineering courses, I continued to broaden my career by delving into music composition for both film and television. Over the past twenty-five years I have developed extensive relationships in the entertainment industry and have not only built quite a wide range of composing credits, but also expanded my involvement in the industry as a producer and music supervisor.

Ryan H

Instruments:

I have been playing the piano for 7 years, but have been involved in the musical institution for much longer than that. I am currently pursuing my bachelors in classical piano performance from California State University of Dominguez Hills, with not much longer to go. I have also been shaping minds young and old in piano technique and music theory for the last three years. And, I believe I am an ideal teacher for anyone just starting out to those who are trying to continue from where they left off.

Jeremy M

Instruments:

I am a charismatic, fun, sensitive, and super-knowledgeable instructor ready to help you achieve your musical dreams! I left my Ph.D. in 2013 so I could perform and teach more on my own terms, and I am thrilled to be a working performer in New York City, San Francisco, and Los Angeles. My earliest musical training was in voice, and I have been an accompanist for many years, so I enjoy collaborating on helping vocal students express their highest potential. I play all genres of popular music, but also love teaching classical vocal techniques for those interested. I look forward to creating a powerful and inspirational instructor-student relationship if that is something that is important to you!

Jennifer H

Instruments:

I am a passionate and well-rounded musician who graduated from the Musicians Institute with a Bachelor's in Music Performance in 2013.  I perform songwrite, compose, arrange, and teach.  I started playing piano at age 7, and took up clarinet, bass clarinet, bari sax, and viola in middle school.  I stayed with viola through high school and performed in Varisty orchestra as first chair.  I have been singing all my life- I've sung with numerous choirs, performed many different shows, and recorded vocals for bands.  I am currently recording my debut EP Anonymous.

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.
Taking piano lessons from the comfort of your own home is the most convenient way of learning to the play the instrument. Finding the additional time out of a busy schedule to transport your child to and from their lessons can be difficult, making home lessons a convenient, time and money saving option. The only thing necessary for home lessons is a keyboard or piano to play on! There is no difference between the lesson content of studio or home lessons - only the location is different. Home lessons help provide a safe, familiar and comfortable learning environment for students.
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.
At Musika, we highly recommend that students looking to learn to play the piano do so with a clear goal in mind. Whether your goal is to learn to play your favourite tunes, reacquaint yourself with the piano, or just to play for fun, our experienced teachers can help you make those goals a reality. Learning, developing and improving technique, co-ordination and theory can actually be quicker during adulthood as the complex thought processes and theory are easier to understand. Adults can also help maintain their fine-motor skills, concentration and listening skills into later life.
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.
