About Me

Hi there my name is Lilli.

I began piano lessons at the age of 3 and have been playing ever since. I have taken 5 semesters of music and jazz theory at American River College and am currently studying under instructor and pianist Tatiana Scott.I take a mult-faceted approach to my teaching. I stress correct form/hand posture (imperative for proper and efficient playing and for protecting the muscles of the hands/wrists), I teach student's to read music (both by note recognition and intervallic reading) and I often mix in ear-training exercises. I'm also available to transcribe music for the student should he or she wish to learn a specific song (if sheet music is not available.)

Whether it's a hobby or perhaps some day a serious endeavor, I welcome all students and coordinate with them based on their goals and learning style. Music practice takes time and diligence but it should always be fun!

I've been teaching for roughly 6 years now and have taught ages 5 and up.

Look forward to hearing from you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty laid back and think above all, music should be enjoyable! Mixing the fun stuff with practicing and scales is key. I expect students to be able to keep their lessons and dedicate time to practicing but I move at your pace, not mine. I am willing to reschedule time permitting. Absences due to illness and personal emergencies will be excused. Please give me ample notice :o)

Piano

About Me

My name is Javier and I love to teach !

I am originally from Guanajuato, Mexico and in my last year of high school, I decided to take private piano lessons with a local teacher and it was during this time period that I learned classical pieces by Beethoven and Mozart. I also took music notation and I tried a hand at composing, discovering a new way to communicate in terms of music.

After moving to the USA, I resume my music education, learning new concepts on classical, blues and pop styles, as well as chord progression and accompaniment pieces. After a year and after completing the teacher training program, I started to teach piano from my home studio.

During this time, I took upon myself two more years of intense composition study and experimenting with some of the secrets of this art, which now has become one of my passion. In 2007 I earned a diploma from this institution and in the same year I released two CDs of my own compositions: Van Gogh Sunflower's and Dimes y Diretes.

This year I have enrolled in a music program at the Music Conservatory of San Francisco, where I am expecting to learn and expand my knowledge on technique, performing, and music ensembles.

For six years, I have been teaching successfully from my home studio, teaching students of all ages and with different music backgrounds.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach piano and I specialize in classical and contemporary music styles

I am a strong believer of traditional teaching methods, however, I have learn that we all learn in different ways, so I let my students discover music by teaching them how to relate to the piano first, after they become familiar with the instrument by playing easy but wonderful melodies I start with the process of teaching music notation, scales, chords, analyzing songs, music history, exercises.

I teach all ages, I am very patient and supportive, never pushy but firm with my students goals.

"I love teaching because it's worthwhile to see my students succeed in something they really work hard for. I believe that every student has their own unique way of learning music. I am patient and understanding, so my lesson plans will be based on the student's ability, personal interests, and goals. We can work on songs that range from Bach to Ella Fitzgerald, Rolling Stones to Adele and Taylor Swift. Music is fun and rewarding.

Music Theory, Piano

About Me

I took piano lessons as a child and my passion for music blossomed. I have been playing for over 30 years. I have always loved writing my own songs, and finally recorded a CD of original contemporary piano. I started teaching piano in 2007, and I am passionate about teaching my students proper techniques and concepts correctly so they will become proficient at reading and playing music. I have always connected easily with children and consider myself very fortunate to be able to teach the joys of music to children of all ages! I have a Bachelor's degree in Communications, I performed as a member of a local college orchestra for 2 years, where I played second string violin and piano. I also have performed drama on stage. From 2011-2013 I have taught music classes to kindergarteners up to sixth graders at a local private elementary school. I am a member of Music Teachers National Association (MTNA), and California Association of Professional Music Teachers (CAPMT).

*** Lesson Details ***
Poorly taught lessons do more damage. Improperly trained students will often have to start back at the beginning to undo bad habits. Why not teach them right the first time? I specialize in teaching beginning students in a fun learning environment. No two students are alike, and everyone learns at a different pace. I cater to your child and will find the best way to encourage them to learn. Your child will learn how to read and play written music proficiently, while learning the proper techniques and concepts correctly the first time. I focus half my lesson time on music theory, and I use fun music apps on my iPad to reinforce note recognition, rhythm counting, and many other fundamental music concepts.

I am a member of Music Teachers National Association (MTNA) and the California Association of Professional Music Teachers (CAPMT).

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room, grand piano, upright digital full keyboard piano, patio for parents to wait.

*** Specialties ***
I like to incorporate discovery learning and step-by-step teaching methodology in my lessons, where I help the student arrive at the answers on their own, thus improving the process of concept retention, and building their confidence. My focus is mostly on building a strong musical foundation where my students will learn to read and play written music proficiently.

Esther B. Sacramento, CA

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Theory, Piano, Singing

About Me

I'm Esther, a very enthusiastic musician. I started out teaching myself piano and singing in a choir at the age of 9. I moved to the U.S. in 1992 and studied music for 10 years receiving my B.M. & M.A. in music at California State University of Sacramento. I studied and trained with Claudia Kitka & Jackie Victorino for voice and Kirsten Smith, Joan McDe, & Angel Mamn for piano. I have performed many solo concerts in the U.S. as well as South Korea.

I find a student's strengths and weaknesses using various ways to encourage each student. I am very patient, kind, flexible, and enthusiastic and I love working with children as much as adults. I strongly support basic skills: sight-reading, pitch and tone.

I have 26 years experience teaching kids and adults private piano and 6 yrs voice coaching (early period to contemporary). I speak fluent Korean and English.

*** Lesson Details ***
My objectives: to help students powerfully communicate through the essence of music and aid the development of children and adults by finding their strengths and weaknesses and to develop their skills and show their musical talents. I emphasize basic skills, good sight-reading, and Solfege skills (Do-Re-Me...etc), vocal technique, vocal performance, and Alexandria technique. Students participate in their own recital and show their musical talents.

Lessons are held at either your home, or mine using composers from various time periods that speaks to the individual student.

A beginner lesson may be 10-15 min. for warm-ups and scales, 10-15 min. theory and 10 min. playtime. In three to six months the student will be able to read sheet music and should be able to perform simple songs.

An intermediate lesson is longer, 45-50 min., with more focus on music from a specific chosen time-period. A specialty is preparation for voice and piano auditions for entering college.

I enjoy teaching children from age 5 up to adults. I also can teach beginner oboe and beginner guitar.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, electronic keyboard, guitar, oboe

*** Travel Equipment ***
guitar, oboe

*** Specialties ***
I teach the basic skills very strongly, and also encourage students and, challenge them, as well.
I also have new techniques for teaching voice and piano.

Loren R. Elk Grove, CA

Guitar, Music Theory, Piano, Songwriting

About Me

Loren is a well-known music instructor and has been teaching private music lessons in the Elk Grove area since 2002. He has been teaching for years and years, has two music degrees and is an active performer in many styles, enjoying a steady gigging schedule in the Sacramento area. He's "the real deal."

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons are of the highest quality available as the student learns to read music, is guided in music theory with ear training, technique, and performance, however performance remains optional. There are options.

We often begin with songs that the student already likes. Sometimes that's the ticket. From Bach to the Beatles, Taylor Swift to Bob Dylan, there are always great entrance points.

Theory, (chords, intervals, scales, cadences, etc.) Reading music, (tabs, traditional music notation, charts), Technique, (right and left hand patterns), it's all covered. It's fun and legitimate education.

*** Specialties ***
Lessons in piano or guitar cover all popular music styles including country, rock, and classical.

Piano Lessons in Sacramento - A Music Lover's Delight

By Javier A. – Sacramento Piano Teacher

The variety of music one can find in Sacramento is greater than the flavors found at any local ice cream parlor. I went on a city-wide mission to find exciting places where I might enjoy live piano performances and it soon became obvious that there are enough flavors of music to delight anyone's palette!

Across the street from the State Capitol building, the Westminster Church provides "Music at Noon," a free one-hour concert series every Wednesday. You can bring your lunch and enjoy "food" for your soul as well! Classical, pop standards, folk, opera, jazz, and music from around the world are just a few of the flavors professional performers bring to the Sacramento Scene.
