Bianca P. Sacramento, CA

From starting to learn the piano, to an intermediate level.

About Bianca

Hello! My name is Bianca and I would like to help you enter and enjoy the wonderful world of music!

I was introduced to music at a young age and haven't stopped playing. I love to have fun when I play, but I love sharing my passion and joy even more!

I feel that my experience as a teacher has helped me grow to build relationships with my students. I don't treat lessons like Juilliard studies. I have fun with my students. Music can be a serious study, but it is also one of the most fun and rewarding. My goal is to build a good relationship with my student so that I can work with them, rather than against them, to achieve the same goal. Making music is fun, but developing a passion for it gives it the life that nothing else can.

Jay Jay W. Sacramento, CA

Piano lessons that include a comprehensive instruction in sight reading, theory, composition, ear training, composition and technique. Repertoire covers a wide variety of genres of the classics to pop, jazz, contemporary, and rock.

About Jay Jay

From the moment my fingers touched the keys, my passion for the piano never ceased. Starting as a self-taught player, I received formal training in the instrument at the University of California, Davis under the instruction of Marilyn Swan. There I played in several chamber ensembles, including a performance of Schubert's Trout Quintet. I have also accompanied recitals for fellow musicians of various instruments, including a double bass and a cello. I have also had the opportunity to work with American Bach Soloists director Jeffrey Thomas who conducted the UC Davis Symphony Orchestra in conjunction with the University chorus where I played both piano and celesta parts. It was a frightening and exhilarating experience and I would do it again in a heartbeat. As a soloist, I have ...

Great Instructor!

I really love having Jay Jay as my piano teacher. He's my 3rd teacher in my life and by far the best. He explains things the way I need hear them, he listens to my needs in those areas and finds ways to help me understand those concepts that I struggle with, and he always gives me just enough to be excited about our session and the next week of practice without being overwhelmed. I think he's great and I think he would be just as great for kids and teens as he is with this adult. He makes it fun and mixes the fun stuff with the not so fun stuff so there always feels like there is a balance.

Kevin B. Sacramento, CA

I have taught/tutored/play piano for 10 years and am currently working as a pianist/accompanist for 4 choir and teach piano to over 10 independent students and group piano classes.

About Kevin

Hello everyone! My name is Kevin and I am a pianist, vocalist, and instrument connoisseur. I have been playing the piano since I was 10 and taught myself how to play by ear. Growing up in a church environment I first taught myself gospel and later jazz. I personally love jazz, and this is one of my areas of strength. It wasn't until I was about 16 years old, while attending my first college, that I started exploring music in depth and as a potential career. As I started to delve deeper, I began to compose and have had some ensemble groups perform my pieces. I have arranged pieces for choirs and accompanied them as well. I also play guitar and bass guitar. As a well rounded musician I can teach you how to play the piano, how to learn music theory, how to compose and the ...

You will enjoy taking lessons with Kevin, because he adapts very well to your skill level and is very intuitive as to whether you 'get' what's being discussed. He is patient as well, just like he says.

Kevin is an excellent piano instructor who has formed a very good student/teacher relationship

During the first 2-3 lessons Ryan was easily distracted, very playful, and frustrated because structured piano lessons were not the same as banging on the piano and shouting words to a song. After a few lessons, we noticed a difference in Ryan's attention span and maturity concerning his piano lessons and school work. He is more focused and he takes pride in having a great lesson (note recognition, theory, fingering, and completing a song). Ryan is having a wonderful time in his piano lessons with Kevin! Ryan likes the encouragement and praise that Kevin gives him for a lesson well done. Kevin has even incorporated a "mini voice lessons" at the end of the piano lesson. Ryan loves it and now looks forward to his piano lessons!

My 5 year old daughter has been taking vocal lessons from Gaw for the past 4 months. I am always pleasantly surprised as she continually teaches new techniques each week.

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. If you are taking piano lessons in Sacramento, this is an activity ...
