Featured Glendale Piano Teachers

Alice C

Instruments:

I recently completed my Master of Music degree as a full scholarship student, at the University of Southern California under the tutelage of Kathleen Winkler. Post graduation, I joined the Stockton Symphony as a member of the first violin section. A passionate orchestral musician, I've served as the concertmaster of both the Classical Symphony in Chicago and the Northwestern University Symphony Orchestra, and played under the baton of numerous influential conductors including James Conlon, Joseph Silverstein, Leonard Slatkin, and Carl St.Clair.   Prior to my move to California, I received both my Bachelor of Music, as well as my Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology at Northwestern University, where I studied with world renowned pedagogues Almita and Roland Vamos. I am as committed to teaching as I am to performing, and have worked over 10 years with students of all ages. I currently hold a private studio of both violin and piano students. References are available upon request.

Jean D

Instruments:

If you are interested in taking piano/keyboard, guitar or voice lessons...I would really like to be your music instructor! I will travel to your home, hoping to make it more convenient for those students that would like their lesson after school hours. You are also welcomed to my home music studio each week for your lesson, conveniently located in Anaheim. To tell you a little about myself, I was raised in a musical family introduced to music at a very young age. I took piano, organ, guitar, glockenspiel, and voice lessons for many years, and participated in music recitals.  I enjoyed singing, and with my music theory background, participated in vocal/piano recitals, involved myself in every school musical, joined every choir, participated in out-of-state voice sight reading competitions, and ultimately joined the New York All State Choir. 

Eric H

Instruments:

I am an inspired and hard-working instructor that strives to give his students the best education possible.  I graduated from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music in Fall 2013 where I was a member of the top performing groups such as the Concert Jazz Orchestra and Pacific Standard Time.  In my studies I have had the experience to play and learn from world class musicians and teachers.  

Patricia M

Instruments:

Music and the arts are my life's passions. I grew up in a musical family where I was constantly exposed to every genre of music from boogie-woogie (played by my father on our piano) to opera (which we heard over the radio every Saturday morning).  I graduated from Hood College for Women in Frederick, MD,  with a Bachelor of  Fine Arts in Applied Music, specifically in piano and voice. Although I had never had any formal training (I taught myself to sight read and play piano) until college, I was the first music student in 69 years to qualify to do an honors thesis in music. My thesis was "The Influence of Claude Debussy on the Evolution of Jazz in the America. " I presented my thesis at a Town Hall Performance in which I also sang and played a number of compositions by Claude Debussy. My classical training in voice was augmented by my study with Joseph Victor Laderoute, a visiting Professor from Peabody Conservatory. My training provided me with the necessary qualifications to audition for and to be employed by the San Diego Opera Co. I sang in the ensemble and had some small, but significant supporting roles.

Amber C

Instruments:

I am an experienced, enthusiastic music instructor, who received a Bachelor of Music Education from the University of Massachusetts in voice and piano.  I have appeared around the world as a soloist singing jazz and pop, places including the Blue Note, NYC, Maui, Key West, Paris, Rome, Rio de Janeiro, Budapest, Phuket, Sydney, Australia.  I have also sung in ensemble groups including the Masterworks Chorale, NYC, the Verdi Opera Chorus of Southern California.  I have sung in Mandarin Chinese, Brazillian Portuguese, French, Italian and Spanish. Currently, I volunteer at the Senior Center leading/accompanying the Sing-Alongs doing songs from the early 1900's up to the present.

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.
Piano lessons in your home offer a convenient option for learning to play an instrument. 90% of our students take their lessons in their home, and this is a practical and time-saving way to learn the technique of the instrument. Think of all the time you can save by not having to transport your student to a class every week! In-home lessons are structured in the same way as a studio lesson, and in addition, a younger student may feel more comfortable at an in-home lesson, as they are already familiar with the surroundings.
Musika piano lessons can be tailored to suit students of all abilities, whether they are beginners, intermediates or advanced level players. For beginners, the basics will be taught. This will include learning the correct posture, hand position and fingering technique. It will include learning the notes and scales of the piano, learning basic chords and chord progressions, developing the musical ear and learning to apply these things to simple songs. 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, slash chords and so on... They can work on their sight reading, music theory - such as learning different time signatures - and applying these skills to more complex songs. For advanced players, they will be adding an edge to their playing, such as improvisational skills, repertoire and genre-specific work, like learning Jazz or Romantic piano.
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 lessons for children will focus on learning the fundamentals of the technique of the instrument and learning to read music and rhythm. We suggest beginning piano lessons no earlier than age 4, due to the attention span of the child, as well as the strength they have in their hands for playing. Piano Lessons will offer an excellent introduction to learning music for a child. Music theory and musicianship skills will also be taught during the lessons. Piano lessons are a great choice for introducing the art of music to your child!
