Featured Walnut creek Piano Teachers

James P

Instruments:

For the past 30 years I have been a full time musician based in the San Francisco Bay Area. During this time I have performed across the United States and have also made numerous trips to Germany, Switzerland and Japan. Over those years I’ve developed a wealth of knowledge and experience that I’m very excited to be sharing with my current students.  They appreciate my patience and warm demeanor as i work with them on their lessons.

Kayoko started playing the piano at the age of 5. She played the piano for music classes at grammar school and junior high school, and started teaching youngsters at the age of 15. She entered Kunitachi Music High School and graduated from Kunitachi College of Music, one of the top conservatories in Japan.          

Pejman A

Instruments:

I have been insfluenced and surrounded with music since childhood. I have experience in multiple aspects of music from performance to teaching and just about everything in between. I love working with students to achieve their goals. The most rewarding feeling for me is when my student feels they've accomplished a technique or method on their respective instrument. I strive to keep lessons joyous yet keep the student motivated to practice at home. I travel to students' home and will soon have my own studio to give the student the option to travel to me. 

Kristina S

Instruments:

I have been performing professionally in the Bay Area  for over 17 years. I have been teaching voice, guitar, piano and all music theory for 20 years. Some of my influences and inspirations are musicians like Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, Nick Drake, John Lennon, Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Edith Piaf, and Sarah Vaughn just to name a few. Having spent much of my time performing as a solo artist, I now love the company and sound of performing with my husband who is my bassist/guitarist, and with various other musicians and band mates. I have also started a company with my husband which promotes humanitarian causes through music, and am also a co-owner of a retail instrument store in Cupertino CA.

More Information About Piano Lessons

We suggest students purchase a piano or keyboard for their lessons, as they will need to practice every day in order to develop their skills on the instrument. We recommend a keyboard with weighted keys, as this will feel most similar to an actual piano. An actual piano will have 88 keys, but most keyboards start from 65 keys and go up from there. Common keyboard brands found at music stores are Yamaha, Casio, and Korg. Many keyboard sets will come with a case, stand, headphones, and may even offer recording features for recording your own playing.
In home lessons are what 90% of our students request. Not only does this provide a convenient means to study music, but we also notice no difference in the quality of lessons done in home or in studio. They are typically structured the same. The main benefit of in-home lessons is the reduction in travel time to another location, and additionaly the student may be able to focus better in your own home since they are familiar with it. Piano lessons in the home offer a practical choice for your family for learning the skill of playing a musical instrument.
There are several different, but vey important elements to becoming a good piano player. It takes time to master the basic skills that will set you on your way to excellence. For beginners, the lessons will focus on elementary piano knowledge and technique, such as learning all the notes of the piano, hand and finger techniques for playing, learning scales and chords, as well as some music theory; reading sheet music, chord charts etc... These basic skills can then be applied to simple songs. Students with these foundations in place can expect to cover things like, diminished chords and other chord types, sight reading, playing more challenging compositions and learning the 7 piano modes - Ionian, Dorian, Phrygian, Lydian, Mixolydian, Aeolian and Locrian mode. Lessons for advanced students might cover topics such as improvisation, glissando, or the study of a specific genre of playing or composer, such as Jazz piano or Johann Sebastian Bach.
Many older students are fulfilling a long standing ambition by taking piano lessons. Some students may have had lessons when they were younger and want to re-learn and others are simply looking for a new hobby. Whatever the aim or reason, there are many benefits to piano lessons for older students. Learning the piano can keep you mentally active, help maintain dexterity, improve your hearing and stimulate the brain in a creative way. Older students can develop basic technique and music theory quite quickly, as their concentration, thinking skills and self-discipline are more advanced than that of children.
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.
