I have been with groups such as the New Patlz Symphony Orchestra and the Saddleback Church Orchestra on string bass, and the Ulster County Concert Band on clarinet.

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.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Most students start out by learning to play on a keyboard or digital piano. The most reputable keyboards brands are Yamaha, Roland and Casio, and can be purchased from most good music instrument retailers. Students should look to buy a keyboard with 88 weighted keys, as this will most resemble the playability of a real piano. At a minimum, 61 keys will suffice for most songs and practice. Keyboards are portable and can be played with headphones, making them highly convenient for practice. That said, if it is within you means to buy an acoustic piano, it will provide the best learning experience.
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.
Our piano lessons take place in a one-on-one setting and are customized to the requirements of each individual student. Students vary in ability from beginner to advanced, and naturally have different lessons requirements for each stage of their development. Put broadly, beginners will cover such aspects to piano playing as; posture, hand positions, fingering technique, scales, chords and applying these things to simple songs. They will also start to develop their knowledge of music theory, reading chord charts and sheet music. Intermediates will start to take these concepts further, but learning different chords variations, such as diminished, augments, slash and 7th chords, as well as improving their speed and playing more complex compositions. Advanced students can develop playing skills such as glissando, improv and working with different piano modes, such as Dorian, Mixolydian and Aeolin. They may also like to study a specific genre - usually Jazz or Blues piano.
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.
Due to the attention span of very young children, we advise that students begin their piano lessons no younger than age 4 or 5. Piano lessons are a great way to introduce an instrument for the first time to a younger child, as learning piano will teach them basic musicianship skills like rhythm and harmony, and how to read sheet music and chords.
