Featured San dimas Piano Teachers

Andrew B

Instruments:

I am passionate about introducing music to young students as well as opening new doors to more experienced players. After studying Piano Performance at Biola University I went on the road as the guitar player for the rock band Fastball. I spent the next 12 years touring and recording in bands, honing my craft as a multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, and producer. In addition to teaching piano and guitar I now compose for television and film out of my home studio in North Hollywood, CA.

James G

Instruments:

I grew up in Indianapolis. While in high school, I studied Classical Clarinet with Achille Rossi of the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. My interest at this early stage of my career was and still is in Classical Music. I went on to play with many of the All-City and All-State Orchestras.After high school, my interest in jazz began to blossom. I went on to attend Berklee College of Music in Boston, where I was a Performance Major and earned my four year professional performance certificate, studying all aspects of jazz: composition, arranging, and performance. I studied Clarinet with Andre Lizotte (Principal Clarinetist with the Boston Opera Company), Improvisational techniques for Tenor Saxophone and Flute with Joe Viola (Woody Herman), Composition with James Williams (Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers) and Paul Schmiling, who is the Dean of Composition at Berklee College of Music and Pianist of the Late Great Sarah Vaughn, and arranging with Herb Promeroy.

Theo B

Instruments:

Theo is no newcomer to the music scene. The veteran keyboardist/composer was born in Portland Oregon, the third of five boys that each pursued musical careers. His forays into classical, rock, jazz, country, new age and film music form a musical bridge between the styles of his two older brother’s rock & country backgrounds and his younger sibling’s classical talents. Theo grew up in Boise Idaho playing in rock bands and earning a degree in classical piano from Boise State University. This multitalented keyboard artist has won multiple competitions and after testing his hand at a variety of musical crafts and styles, eventually gravitated toward a career as a performer and songwriter.

Astrid H

Instruments:

My background is in musical theater and I have sung, acted and danced my way around the world. I love what I do and love to share this passion with my students. I get the greatest joy out of helping my students connect with their own voices, gain confidence and see them grow as a person and as artists. I also teach beginners piano, because for me the piano is the perfect way to introduce children to music and give them a basic map of what music can be. It is also the perfect instrument for singers to accompany themselves and I specialize in teaching a very simple way of accomplishing that very easily and quickly.

Matthew P

Instruments:

I am a pianist, composer, and educator who strives to bring out the best in all my students.  I have composed for film, internet, and theatrical productions and performed across the country in classical and jazz contexts.  I hold a masters degree in jazz studies from the Jacobs School of Music, where I studied with Luke Gillespie, Steve Houhgton, and David Baker.  In the summer of 2013 I performed with the Disneyland All-American College Band.  I have recently worked as music director and pianist at the Adderley School for the Performing Arts in Pacific Palisades, CA and as a private piano and composition teacher at the Joe Ferrante Music Academy in Monrovia, CA.

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.
Musika deals primarily with home lessons for students. The location is the only difference between our in-home lessons and our studio lessons. As they do not have to travel to their lessons, home piano lessons can be highly convenient for those parents and students with a busy schedule - students will need a keyboard to practice on, however. For younger students in particular, having piano lessons in the comfort of their own home can be of great benefit. They will feel more safe and relaxed in familiar surroundings, allowing them to focus on learning and enjoying playing the piano.
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.
Learning a new musical skill as an adult is a great way to keep your brain fresh! We have many adult students actively taking lessons with us, and this actually represents around 50% of our student base. Our instructors will offer an individually tailored lesson plan to the needs of an adult student. You will learn the technique of the instrument, specific repetoire suited to your skill level, and learn how to read music and sight read.
Children are recommended to start piano lessons no earlier than age 4 or 5. The attention span and personality of the child are something to consider when thinking of taking lessons. Even if your child has no evident musical inclinations, piano lessons offer a great option for introducing your child to music. During their lessons children will learn how to read music, fundamentals of musicianship and sight reading, music theory techniques, and ear training.
