Featured San dimas Piano Teachers

Jannel R

Instruments:

  I love teaching students of all ages a variety of instruments and styles...from 3 year old twins taking piano lessons to an 85 year old woman taking organ lessons.  Each lesson is exciting discovering what we can learn together. I have toured all over the U.S throughout my life and am a singer/songwriter in the process of recording my 9th CD. I created an international tour that continuea every year.. I have taught students that are Billboard Music's Top 10 artists, Grammy Winners and American Music Award Winners,  American Idol top 50, known child stars and actors on major TV Shows and sitcoms. 

Michelle G

Instruments:

Michelle has been surrounded by music since her infancy, and since then has continuously branched out to learn new styles and genres of this universal art of entertainment. A violinist, pianist, singer, and songwriter, Michelle is a wonderful fury of energy to be reckoned with - and her professional experience is equally as diverse as her talent. She has performed as a guest artist with Riuniti Opera, Near East Music Ensemble, The Erick Bolivar Band, Luis Eric Gonzalez, world-reknown jazz/pop trumpet player David Longoria, and has recorded violin and vocals for many tv cues and jingles. Her most recent singing credits include "9 to 5" on the Soundtrack of The Dictator with Sasha Baron Cohen, as well as violin for latin pop artist Erick Bolivar's "Amar Solo es Amar" (music video is currently in production). A true firework on the stage, Michelle exudes a dynamism and flare that is uniquely hers, and is known to contribute an undeniable positivity to her music workshops, collaborations, and concerts. It is with much joy and enthusiasm that she shares her knowledge of music & performing arts with her fellow colleagues and students!

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.

Omar G

Instruments:

I believe music is a gift that unites people together bringing out our deepest emotions that words cannot express. At the age of 5 I received an organ and from that point on I embarked on a long life journey to indulge and learn more about music. In elementary, junior high and high school I was involved in any subject dealing with music. I joined school choirs, orchestras, bands, marching bands, jazz bands, musicals you name it. While enjoying all school music activities I was selected to join in honor county and state orchestras and choirs. In junior high and high school I was selected to play for the Junior Pacific Symphony Orchestra, received scholarships to music summer camps, and was selected musician of the year. In college my quest continued with the Orange Coast College Orchestra, Praise Symphony Orchestra, Vanguard University Orchestra as well as guitar ensembles and college choir groups. I've also taken private lessons from Dr. Art David (Julliard graduate) in stand up bass as well as David Black (Pacific Symphony Orchestra) and classical guitar with Richard Glenn and David Murray.

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.

More Information About Piano Lessons

For the sake of lessons and practice, a keyboard is often a much more viable option than buying a piano. Pianos are space consuming and expensive, as well as being very loud. Keyboards are perfect - especially for beginners - as they are more diverse in their functionality. Most keyboards come with a range of different sounds and effects (FX), such as chorus, reverb and synthesizer sounds. Another great feature common to many keyboards is a record function. This allows students to hear things back after they have played them, such as practicing scales etc... or to record ideas they are composing!
One-on-one piano lessons straight from the comfort of your own home is a great way to learn to play the piano. 90% of our students choose to take lessons from home, mostly due to the convenience of not having to make travel arrangements both to and from their lessons. This is great for parents and students with busy schedules. The content of home lessons is exactly the same as studio lessons, however, you will need to have a keyboard or piano at your home. Home lessons provide the best learning environment, as it is a comfortable, familiar surrounding for students to learn in.
The content of each lesson is determined by the ability and experience level of each individual student. For students just starting off, the foundations of piano playing will start to be laid. This will include learning to read music and chord charts, learning their way around the piano and learning simple scales and chords. Students can put these new skills to use through simple, entry level compositions. For intermediate pianists, they will develop some of the finer arts to piano playing, such as modulation, developing speed, and combining a wider array of chords, such as augmented and slash chords. They will also get to work on their sight reading and playing more challenging songs. Advanced students may wish to work on their improvisational skills, develop their repertoire or study a specific genre or style of playing, such as Jazz, Baroque, or Blues. Regardless, all students will experience the joys of piano playing.
We offer piano lessons for students of all ages, including adults. Whether you are a complete beginner on the instrument, or you have not played the piano in many years, our knowledgable instructors can definitely assist you in your journey of developing your musical skills.
Our recommended starting age for piano is 4 or 5, with students capable of playing the keys properly and with sufficient strength in the fingers and hands. Young students also should have begun learning to count and to read. No matter what the age may be, the piano is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals of music, including music theory and basic composition techniques.
