Featured San dimas 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.

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.

Instruments:

I come from a very musical family and started piano at five years old. Since then, my accomplishments include an Honorable Mention at the Korea Times Youth Music Competition. I have performed in two solo recitals and have performed biannually with the Beverly Hills Chamber Orchestra. I have participated in the Frederic Chopin Felix Mendelssohn Minifest 2005 and have regularly performed at the Colburn School of Performing Arts from 2003 - 2008. I was also a part of the Goldcoast Chamber Music Festival and was awarded the second prize at the Chamber Music Walker Competition. I have excellent communication skills and have worked as an assistant to the Program Coordinator at Montecito Summer Music Festival while also participating as a performer. In addition to my musical abilities, I have received many academic honors as well. I am a member of the Agoura High Chapter of the California Scholarship and is also on the Dean’s List at the University of Southern California. I graduated from USC with a BA in Music and emphasis on Piano. 

Alicia F

Instruments:

I am an energetic person with a passion for teaching and a love for music. I graduated from the University of Redlands in 2014 with a Bachelor of Arts in Music: Emphasis in Violin Performance. I took full advantage of the optional music classes offered at the University of Redlands and have had the opportunity to learn a wide variety of instruments including trombone, French horn, flute, clarinet, saxophone, and percussion. I have also taken 7 years of piano lesson. I am happy and willing to share my knowledge with anyone interested in trying a new instrument. I also have basic training in violin, viola, and cello repair, a skill that is utilized surprisingly often when teaching younger student. Currently, I am pursuing a Masters in Education from the University of Redlands.

I'm a creative and passionate instructor who loves working with students of all ages from all different backgrounds. I recently completed my Master of Music Performance in Clarinet at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, and have since enjoyed performing internationally with a variety of chamber music and orchestral ensembles. As a Southern California native, I always enjoy the opportunity to bring my experiences back to the students of my hometown.

More Information About Piano Lessons

Keyboards are a convenient option for practice and lessons as they afford students the options of portability and the use of headphones for practice. They are also cheaper and more space-conscious than an acoustic piano. Look to buy a keyboard that has a minimum of 61 keys, and a weighted hammer action. This will ensure your keyboard closest resembles the playability of a real piano. The most popular brand are Roland, Yamaha and Korg. If it is possible, buying an acoustic piano will offer the most rewarding learning experience for students, and provides market resale value.
Musika offers customized one-on-one music lessons in your home - a smart and simple solution for busy parents and students. The convenience of in-home lessons allows you to save time without having to transport your child to class, allows your child to maximize their busy schedule, and provides a safe and familiar environment in which to learn.
Students at different levels of their piano playing will require different aspects of piano playing to be covered during their lessons. Beginners will start out learning the basics, intermediates will be applying the foundations to more complex compositions and advanced players will want to hone a few specific skills or styles. The basic things that beginner students will learn are things such as; learning the notes of the piano, posture and playing technique, scales and chords. At this level, students will learn simple scales and chords, such as major and minor chords, and start to put some of the basic techniques into practice via simple songs. Intermediate players will work on more exotic chords and playing such as diminished chords, 7th chords and applying these things to more challenging compositions. Advanced players can improve sight reading, improvisational abilities or work on genre specific techniques, such as Jazz or Blues. Throughout, students can develop their musical ear, reading and theory.
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.
Learning to play the piano as a child is a fun, rewarding and vastly beneficial to their overall development. Children can develop their motor-skills, dexterity and coordination through technical piano playing - learning scales, chords and correct fingering. Young students can also develop their concentration, listening skills and ability to master complex thought processes through theory, repertoire and student-teacher feedback. Learning to play the piano can also be character building, such as instilling a hard-working attitude, developing self-discipline and confidence through practice, taking exams, enter competitions or performing recitals.
